Well, I said that I would probably have to do a second set of Gen recs, because there had been so much good stuff last year, so here it is.

Letters Never Sent (the Crumpled Sheets Remix) by [livejournal.com profile] nothorse just killed me. Xander tries to write to Jesse’s parents. I defy you not to at least sniffle a bit with this one. This is a remix of [livejournal.com profile] texanfan’s equally great Lonely Burden.

Talking of remixes, I have to mention [livejournal.com profile] aadler’s Phantom 309 (the Ghost That You Can’t See Remix). Xander’s life has gone through some changes, especially after he runs into Marcie Ross. I really enjoyed the characterisation in this story, as well as the story itself. This is a remix of More Than Air by [livejournal.com profile] sunnyd_lite

Unwrapping by [livejournal.com profile] brutti_ma_buoni was written for the [livejournal.com profile] spook_me ficathon and is Spike and Dru at their most glittering and twisted. This is just wonderful.

[livejournal.com profile] il_mio_capitano always gives great Giles and she does so again in White Out. Giles is walking home through the snow – what could possibly go wrong. This is a deceptively simple fic, but I really enjoyed the progression of mood and the ending is just awesome.

And finally another Giles story, Rank Outsiders by [livejournal.com profile] ljs for [livejournal.com profile] summer_of_giles. Giles needs a specific book and one Lindsey MacDonald has the only copy and they just have to meet in a demon bar. I really like that this is Giles showing his rougher side to Lindsey’s Mr Oh So Smooth.

Ooh, I'm not sure I've read a fic where Giles meets Lindsey but that holds such interesting possibilities. Thanks for the recs!

Hey, this list looks familiar (I just made my way through your end-of-year rec list)! :) And these are some of my faves from it.

Thanks so much for the recs. I just read the [livejournal.com profile] brutti_ma_buoni one and it's brilliant (though horrible too).
