The Prompt: Write about changes in relationships (friend to enemy or vice versa), or introduce characters that have never met, or something else that fits the theme.

Party Demons by [livejournal.com profile] kantayra - The world might be ending but at least Clem’s made a new friend. Hee!

Sleeping Arrangements by [livejournal.com profile] gwynnega - given that they're drabbles, it can be hard to describe the story without ruining the surprise

Unconventional by [livejournal.com profile] glassslipper - ditto

All in the Retelling by [livejournal.com profile] xmirax - rescuing the world from Angelus as told by one who lived to tell the tale

Hubris by [livejournal.com profile] knotted_rose - I don’t want to ruin the surprise. Angel story.

The Girl Who Falls Down Stairs by kaydeefalls – Work caution advised – A study of women in the Whedonverse and how they come into their various powers. An interesting take that shows a consistent storyline across the different properties of fear and reluctance, followed by a maturity and confidence after the transition.

A Lorne Thing (PG)

Pitch perfect Lorne spills his woes to a sympathetic bartender in season five. Written as if you're the bartender talking to Lorne, its a real treat to read vivicious' Lorne's story. Its set in season five and Lorne's descriptions of Angel's crew is hilarious. It also features a delightfully demonic appearance from Sweet.

My Sword Is My Song (PG-13)

Lorne is a survivor, dramatically dressed and ready with a sea breeze, but always ready to land on his feet. This fic shows in a sad yet understated way how Lorne moves on in post-NFA LA.

Same Time Next Year (Lorne/Fred, G)

A sadden Lorne completes an annual ritual to mourn Fred. This ficlet tugs at your heart strings and shows a vulnerable and romantic side of Lorne.

Lorne's List of No (PG)

Funny list of songs that Lorne never wants to hear again.

Nothing Goes Away (Lorne & Faith, PG-13)

Lorne tries to take care of Faith in New York City in this gritty fic with heart about a slayer and a demon looking to atone for their pasts in the big apple. The point of view is perfectly Faith but Lorne shines as her link to the PTB and confidante.

I was going to do this last year, but time ran away from me. But since I think it's a rather good idea, I'll try this year instead. I'm going to stretch the rules a little, but hope that the mods will forgive me!

My idea is very simple: I'll rec LJers who've not posted for at least a year, and (to try to keep within the rules) point to one work of theirs each. Sadly, my list hasn't changed from last year. Although originally my list was going to include [livejournal.com profile] frimfram, except when she mothballed her LJ she flocked everything, fic included. :( Ah well, it's not like I didn't have plenty to choose from as her replacement.

Lucky Me by [livejournal.com profile] millylicious - All – We all know Buffy's had a rather unfortunate love life, but it's never been so funny as it is here! Milly puts the vid together so cleverly you hardly notice all the work that went into it, because you're too busy alternately laughing and shaking your head at Buffy's, well, luck. Wonderful framing, lots of fun.

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 fics that, when I read them, made me say to myself, "That is just amazing!" I hope you enjoy them.

I think this story has been recced already, but never mind. It can't be recced too often IMO.

Of All the Wonders I Have Yet Lived, Angel/Darla R by [livejournal.com profile] girlpire. A heartbreaking look at what might have happened if a human Darla hadn't died after all when Connor was born.

Remix Redux is one of those ficathons that not only gets me writing, but gets me reading outside of my low hanging fruit/familiar authors standard mod. The following are my five favorite Jossverse fics from [livejournal.com profile] remixredux08 that I read (as I didn't manage to read all that were a part of the ficathon), but didn't beta:

Title:
She's Getting Married (The It's Not to Us Remix)

Author: [livejournal.com profile] secondalto
Rating: PG
Fandom/Characters: Angel the Series/ Angel, Spike, Buffy
Why I chose this: Fabulous funny expansion of [livejournal.com profile] mommanerd's original drabble. By the time I reached the "Are we there yet?" I thought I was going to lose it.


Here be four more. )

Here's 5 (more or less) fics I found outstanding this year, some because I stumbled across them as a fanfic judge. See? No Good deed ever goes unpunished. Or something like that.

Blood Oranges, by theblackmare Rated FRT )

For the rest of these, I can lift from my judges comments. (There was concrit, too. If I judged you for SOTHA or Lie to Me Round 7 last year, and you never got my comments, ask and ye shall receive. Even if I was mean, concrit is concrit. Just don't hurl rocks through my window or anything. Drop by my journal later and I'll post the categories I judged on those. I won't share scores, just the comments I wished I could leave at the time.)

Talking Heads, by washaway Rated FRT )

Undercover, by lorelei_frolick Rated FRT )

Old Bronze, by D M Evans Rated FRT )

And last but not least, something I didn't judge or get around to nominating, but which I recc'ed earlier in the year on my journal:

There Should Have Been Trumpets, by rahirah Rated FRT )

And I'll slip in a bonus 6th rec: Moon Magic by lit_gal. Rated FRM, to be safe.  )

Top Five Rarely Speaking Together If Never Characters Fics:

1- I Like the Quiet by Spring Summers:

Spike and Jessica Harris share a talk. Lovely Spike characterization. If you're a Spike fan, you'll really enjoy him here. He's snarky, sharp and funny. Then again, this is a season 4 fic. But obviously written after the show ended.

Check the other four... )

To kick this off, here's a list of Wishlist Items.

Requests for Faith fics

They're not solely Faith but I think each captured the character in their own way.

1.All the Boys to the Yard by [livejournal.com profile] alizarin_nyc - NC-17 - Faith/Connor. I liked the way she used Connor to highlight Faith’s issues.

Of all the lists I've made for this community, I think this is my favourite one... hee hee. All of these fics are waay AU long, majorly, plot-driven fantasy lands, which incorporate a ton of 'ships each. Of course there are het 'ships within each of the fics *if you squint hard enough*, but the main parings are all slash (and I'm not even going to try to be anal and list every 'ship within, 'cuz I know I'll miss some), so that's what I called the list slash multi-ship. I think most of thse fics are underappreciated, so give 'em a chance, check-em out and send lots of positive feedback to their authors, cuz, well, they deserve it!

So many ships so little time )

Oddly enough as much humor as many stories have I realized I hadn’t actually read that many outright humor pieces this past year. Many stories, while funny, are essentially about something else. So here’s what I ended up with.

(1) The Circus is Coming! by [livejournal.com profile] spikendru - Teen – Because sheer silliness has to be celebrated too.
