These are five stories which don't feature popular ships and so might have flown under your radar. Give them a chance, because they're really worth reading!

1) Le Petit Mort (First Slayer/OFC; NC-17) by [livejournal.com profile] snogged - I realize that the First Slayer isn't the most well known of Buffyverse denizens, but this ficlet features her in the most intriguing way. An angsty-sexy take on the beginnings of a primal battle that will surely satisfy.

[livejournal.com profile] snickfic: Oz, After the Apocalypse
What it says. Oz, as a wolf, irresistibly Oz like and near indestructible. You'll find yourself willing him to find a better place.

Lindsey by [livejournal.com profile] darknumb - All - #7 of Lindsey, cropped in b&w just seemed such an interesting angle, though I quite love that brightly colored one of Connor next to him too.

[livejournal.com profile] deird1, Just the Four of Us: complicated, ambitious, waaay outside the author's comfort zone (or so she writes, anyway), and she pulls it off beautifully.

5 Babyfics

Babyfics are a major guilty pleasure of mine. These, however, have no guilt whatsoever associated with them. Five pairings, five different flavors ranging from sweet domesticity to character study to tear-your-heart-out angst.

Here are five entries that illustrate why I love my fandom, in no particular order, though the first one is very important to me personally.

For the last two years, I've been writing a long (oh boy, is it long!) fic called Age of Unreason, and I've had the very good fortune to have [livejournal.com profile] sueworld2003 as a collaborator. This first entry is another of the superb illustrations she's made for the story, without which it just wouldn't be the same at all.

The Jossverse is a dark place. Two of these vids look at disturbing themes the stories themselves bring up – incest, violence, incestuous violence. Two are more meta and one is almost (but not quite) literally dark.

You know those little stories that manage to get inside you and then either punch you in the gut or make you laugh until it hurts, all within a 100 words? And you know that delightful little community [livejournal.com profile] open_on_sunday that gives people a specific prompt once a week? Obviously, choosing only five drabbles out of literallly hundreds is barely scratching the surface, but... here's five favourites.

Top 5 Vids

1. Girl Anachronism by [livejournal.com profile] rae1013 - All – I thought that the frenetic, disjointed pace of the song and vid did well in presenting River as a confused, frightened and yet funny character. Given the level of angst in her storyline I rather liked this approach to looking at the lighter side of things without overlooking her problems.

Great Buffyverse fan vids continued to appear in 2007. Here are five of my favourites. They're all Spike/Spangel-centric, as I guess you might expect.

My top 5 favorites in various categories.

We ain’t going anywhere but got suits and cases

1. Favorite Vid
Jesus Walks by [livejournal.com profile] mimesere – All – I haven’t seen many Gunn vids around but I have to admit, after seeing this one I have a hard time imagining someone’s done it better. Just gripping. I think it brings out the separateness and struggle of this character’s arc really well.

Feel me before I slip away

!. Help Me by Wolfling - Like Illyria, Doyle’s tenure on the show was rather short and thus there’s a limit to how many different takes can really be presented on him. What I liked about this one was the structure of the vid. Given the ending to Doyle’s arc one could question how much help Cordy and Angel were to him, yet I think the vid makes the case that he was better off having a purpose and having the end he did.
