Here are five Giles/Xander fics, which is my second favourite ship. These range from the ridiculously cute to the ridiculously angsty.

Starting with cute, The Beginning of Knowledge by [livejournal.com profile] mireille719 is some lovely incremental snapshots of Giles and Xander’s relationship in which Xander buys post Valentine’s Day chocolate and Giles folds laundry.

This way for the pretties... )

Recently I’ve been tracking down some favourite old Xander/Oz fics that somehow had slipped through the cracks of my bookmarks. I was really happy to revisit all of these

First up it's Kate Bolin’s wonderful The Curve of Your Lips Rewrites History. Post Graduation, Xander runs across Oz at a truckstop and offers him a ride. This Xander is emotionally all over the place and Oz is as serene as a werewolf can be. The scene by the lake and the aftermath will kill you every time you read it. Bloody gorgeous but not worksafe.

More Xander/Oz goodness )

Okay, here I am too! I wish to thank everyone who recommended other fics, especially the Spangel ones. I know some of them, since I did some time lurking the English fandom but saying nothing (Because I didn't know how to write), but it's really nice to discover other classics. It makes me feel part of the group.

So, my list: 5 fics with Spike as major character I love so much (There are too many Spike-centric fics in this fandom that I love and it's hard to pick just 5)


Beggars would Ride by [livejournal.com profile] wiseacress This is one of the first Spike/Angel fics I've ever read. It's painful, dark and gorgeously written. I love the dynamic between Angel and Spike and how they hurt each others. I'm a sucker for Spangel h/c.

19 Hours by Annie Sewell-Jennings. First English Spuffy fic. Just glorious. It's a post Chosen fic, it's Spike/Buffy-centric and there is a lot of glorious happy sex involved. If you love Spike and Buffy together you have to read this.

To Come Home To by [livejournal.com profile] snickfic Recently discovered and it's a series. Again with the Spuffy post-Chosen kinda happy place. This one is also about mpreg and believe me when I say that it's the greatest thing ever.

Stick Shift by [livejournal.com profile] stultiloquentia Spike. Buffy. Pegging. Hot. If you like hot Spuffy porn this is the thing for you.

A Raising in the Sun by [livejournal.com profile] rahirah I guess that everybody knows this one. It's actually my favorite part of the saga. I love it because it really feels S6-like and it's all Spike's POV and it's excellent.

If you had asked me 14 years ago if I thought Willow and Faith would make a good couple, I would have laughed in your face. W/T 4EVA BB. But I got older, and wiser, and now I find this pairing (strictly post series) to be one of my all time favorites.

In no specific order:

Title: In Darkness, Their Absence
Author: [livejournal.com profile] lily_lovely
Genre: Crazy, Angst
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: descriptions of violence, swearing
Summary: You don’t like the dark. You’re not supposed to.
Link: http://lily-lovely.livejournal.com/31840.html

Why read it? I love dark stories and this one combines insanity with it. Very rich, very real, very sad. This one will stick with you.

Some of my favorite ghost stories, mostly not scary and Spike-centric.
Any bad English and awkward phrasing in summaries is mine and shouldn't be blamed on fic authors.

What Happens In Vegas (Buffy/Spike, R) by [livejournal.com profile] rahirah. Buffy, Spike and haunted honeymoon suite. Absolutely perfect horror fluff (and even more perfect Buffy's voice).

More early season S/B fun! However, the fact that Spike is only in one S3 episode made it a little tougher to find fic for this category. So, I cheated.

All Over It, by Nautibitz - More proof that the "Buffy and Spike have to have sex to save the world" genre really exists! Also of note, in a weird coincidence, this was originally written a few months before "Chosen" aired, but has Spike wearing a gaudy necklace as part of the world-saving ritual.

[livejournal.com profile] sb_fag_ends is a newish comm for Spuffy fics, begun last year by [livejournal.com profile] quinara, [livejournal.com profile] shapinglight, and [livejournal.com profile] bogwitch. Fics are up to 1000 words and somehow related to the prompt of the week/month.

Here's a sampling of five yummy bits of Spuffiness posted to the comm by five different authors.

Beer Bad Buffy, by [livejournal.com profile] thisficklemob

Basically, what might have come next if the caveman beer hadn't worn off so quickly. Hilarious. I wish there were a whole longfic worth of this.

Some are friendship and some are shippy.

1) If I Act (a Little Strange) by [livejournal.com profile] waddis: There's a difference between getting old and getting older, but neither one feels very good. Xander is turning 30 -which is approperaite seeing as he's obviously a month or a few weeks older than Buffy so his 30th birthday is either in last December or today. Happy birthday, Xander!
Check them out!! )

Fics I loved which I haven't seen recc'ed yet, but oh, for a linking theme... it's mainly Giles in a number of guises, but one Darla-fic sneaked in. My favourite characters being written well, in relationships of varying states of happiness and snark: a joy.

[livejournal.com profile] wesleysgirl, Life is What Happens When You're Making Other Plans, very, very sweet human AU, Giles/Wesley in their cautious, repressed selves. Not a vampire in sight, but a great deal of bookbinding talk, which is utterly in character.

To restate: I read plenty of light-hearted fare, but that’s not all I love in a fanfic. Some stories involve real-life issues, the struggle to make a relationship work, facing your own shortcomings, or just plain bad timing. Here are a few stand-outs from 2009.

The Fall of the Year by [livejournal.com profile] st_salieri
Ten years after Chosen, bad plumbing and the day-to-day threaten a relationship that has withstood multiple deaths. R

I loves me some cowboy lawyer, so here are five great fics with Lindsey McDonald in them for the year:

Hand Job by Celtic-forest
Lindsey/Spike - Lindsey has hand issues. Spike helps.

Bon Jovi Rocks by Ash-Carpenter
Lindsey/Dean Winchester (SPN crossover). Mostly cracky, but good good fun. Because who knows more about the rock-country ballad than Lindsey??

In the Interests of Science by Ash-Carpenter - Lindsey/Spike, dash of Fred. Also cute.

Nothing to Lose by Ash, again. This one is long, and although you may think it, it's not AU. Lindsey/Riley - Iowa and Texas meet before the series. Started in 2008 but finished in 2009, so it counts, right?

Arrangement by RockstarPeach - Lindsey/Giles, humanAU, some Wes and Spike in there. This is a long fic. Giles is a wealthy man and Lindsey is his kept boy. But then that hot young bartender, Spike, starts making trouble. ;)

Sorry. It's a bit of a naff description, but I'm not in the right headspace to categorise properly.

These are five fics I really enjoyed in 2009. They don't have anything in common and one of them (tragically) is a WIP. I have another post's worth of recs for another day, which is similarly lacking in an overall theme.

1- The Giles Thing by [personal profile] drsquidlove: Finally, this awesome fic has an ending. Now, if you've never read Xander/Giles and want to venture into this pairing, this is the fic for you. I think what makes it so special is the parts where the writer focused on the Scoobies/Joyce/Tony's reaction to the ship, the relationship between the characters, growing up for Xander and his friends. And her Tony Harris will always be one of my favorites.

Check the other four... )

Buffy, Angel and Spike ideally complement each other whether they fight or make love or try to live together without killing each other. Unfortunately there aren't many fics about the Royal Three nowadays - my guess is that the famous threesome panel in Buffy comics left nothing to imagination. Still, there are insightful fics (not necessarity NC-17) about Buffy, Angel and Spike, their ultra-complicated relationship and their attempts at harmony in the middle of chaos. The stories listed here are varied - there is a plotty epic story, a snarky, no-holds-barred parody and several character studies during different stages of heroes' journeys.

In an aging fandom like ours, it's always reassuring to see an influx of new blood every year or even every couple of months. Here are a few of 2008's enductees and fics of theirs that I enjoyed. The list includes a selection of gen and pairing fics of varying lengths.

1. A Man of Many Colors by [livejournal.com profile] snickfic 
Oz, G, through BtVS S2 "Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered"
Summary: A character study through Oz's hair dying decisions.

Review: Talk about bang for your buck. Snickelish takes one facet of Oz's personality - his ever changing hair color - and goes the distance with it by digging deep and creating a backstory that does a lot to shed some light on a character whose past and inner workings were barely even touched on in canon. I felt very satisfied after reading this and more than once thought, "Yes. That makes so much sense." Creative, deep, and somewhat sad, this shot definately makes you wonder what other hidden worlds there are to explore within Buffy and Angel's large ensemble cast.
