Open on Sunday hasn’t had a post since July. As a memorial, I found five great - I went through a bunch but I didn’t read them all -  drabbles written for an Open on Sunday prompt.

1. [livejournal.com profile] punch_kicker15’s If You Are What You Say You Are because I’m a sucker for a happy ending.

2. [livejournal.com profile] romanyg’s Woman of Property because I’m also a sucker for angst

3. [livejournal.com profile] beer_good_foamy’s Advant Gardener because no one writes humor like Beer Good Foamy

4. [livejournal.com profile] baudown’s Parlour Games because awesome Spander

5. [livejournal.com profile] nihilistbear’s Kiss from “Once More With Feeling” because ouch!

And while I’m here, the first prompt since April has recently been posted at Giles Shorts. Go. Write.

Some favorite gen stories of the past year, arranged from shortest to longest.

Distractions by [livejournal.com profile] il_mio_capitano (Giles, Xander, PG). A library horror drabble that could really give you chills.

Parent Traps by [livejournal.com profile] aliceinkinkland (Willow, Anya, Xander, Tara, G). After "The Gift," Willow, Tara, Xander, and Anya discuss how they’re going to raise Dawn without turning into their own not-so-perfect parents.

Here are five [livejournal.com profile] open_on_sunday entries I really enjoyed last year. And looking back through links I’ve collected I’m embarrassed that I didn`t get around to commenting on a few on them, so I really must recify that! But that aside, they are all great in their different ways.

I’ve Got You Under My Skin by [livejournal.com profile] xspike4evax is a lovely look inside Cordy’s head as she wonders what she sees in Xander.

Caster Sugar first part and second: I'd requested a story - Spike eating the Band Candy - that thisficklemob had been thinking on for years. Spike reverts to William, which does make sense now that I think on it. It's delightful.

Gabrielle's Answering Prayers: Joyce and Angel's relationship in the summer between seasons 2 and 3. It's brilliant.

Il Mio Capitano's Double Dipping: One of three recs for stories set in "Band Candy". (The others are Caster Sugar and the Saturday NIght vid.) Ripper and Joyce don't go as quietly as Buffy thinks.

Punch Kicker's If You Are What You Say You Are: Okay, I adore this because Joyce is saved. What can I say? I like Joyce.

FeliciaCraft's Lust at First Sight: Giles falls.

Top Five Scoobies Fics:

1- Tin Man by [profile] divine_serenity:

It’s been over a year since the Hellmouth in Sunnydale was destroyed, and Xander Harris finds himself alone on a plane remembering and assessing choices both old and new. Can an anonymous gift help him make peace with the past and find what means the most? Mild Spuffy hinted at.

Check the other four... )

In the same vein as my previous lists, I'm offering up the last member of Troika: Jonathan Levinson. He's sweet, he's funny, and he's an extra in basically every season of the show. Here's five looks at him for the classics weekend.

1. Escapism by Vixen

Rated approximately R this is just a look at how Jonathan was the best of them in his way. It's a lasting sort of story, I thought.

four more )

I hope you all enjoy these even though there's a lot of slash involved. I have no idea why that is since I was trying for an even balance. Maybe it says more about my links than fandom proclivities. *laughs*

Warren Mears is a very underused character in fanfiction, I think. He had a lot of potential and he was such a dark character without completely losing that human edge.

Here's my list of Top 5 Warren Mears Fictions

1. Fucking in the Dark by Moonloon

Rated NC-17 this strange little vignette showcases just how dark Warren/Andrew could be behind the scenes. It's the epitomy of how dark Warren could be and how manipulative and just how much potential for Scary Supervillain he really had.

Four More and a bonus just for sheer nerve )

Top Five Angsty Vids:

I feel so sad because most of my favorite vids are gone, I'd have recced Sleep Walker by Windy, amazing character study vid, also some of Xandra's character study vids but all of them had disappeared. *pouts*

1- Crucify by [personal profile] charmax

This video is centered around the end of season 2 and the beginning of season 3. It looks at Buffy’s disillusionment with slaying and her running away from home and her responsibilities. I can never describe how the song choice fits perfectly with Buffy's feelings at this moment.
