So, sparrow2000, now you know why I've been reading - and commenting - on your stories lately! For the rest of you, some of the stories are dark - I'm looking at you Memento Mori - but I believe they're all worksafe.

  1. We could have quite a lively debate about which of sparrow2000’s stories are the best, but I believe any such list would have to include Magpie. The incredible writing, the detailed descriptions … I don’t know if I can describe what makes sparow2000’s stories so great, but this one has it all.


  1. Tales of Christina - ah, Xander’s in love.

  2. Querencia - Mmm, I adore this one for its metaphor.

  3. Memento Mori - Okay, I just made a squeaky noise of joy when I saw this story was up next. It’s, um, as Gomer Pyle used to say “Surprise, surprise, surprise.”

  4. In a Lifetime - as I’d been reading through sparrow2000’s stories on AO3, I’ve been commenting on them. After I’d made this list, sparrow2000 pointed me to this story which isn’t on AO3. It’s so good I had to change this list to include it.

I admire you, because suspect it was the most difficult list to make - it's so hard to chose just 5 sparrow's stories =)

So glad the longer ones in particular are at AO3. Click-download! I think I caught up on more longer Buffyverse stories this past year than the last few years before that because I'd never remember to come back for the longer ones even though I love long stories.

Added them to my queue :)

These are all wonderful, but it's SO hard to narrow it down when it comes to sparrow. I love everything she writes.

Oh my goodness, I'm speechless.

Thank you so much hon. This is totally unexpected. I was just really happy to have you reading or in some cases rereading fics and enjoying them, so to get such a lovely rec is just the big cherry on top of an already gorgeous cake.

Oh, and your lovely feedback on In a Lifetime gave me the kick up the backside to finally post it on AO3, so it's now up there if you ever want to revisit it.

Hugs you hard again, just because

Hugs you very hard for thinking of me. And yay for the Memento Mori love.
