I scooped approximately 600 words together into something that almost has a plot. I mean, time passes, so that's something. I'm not sure it has any other redeeming qualities. Puns aren't a redeeming quality, right?
Reworded characterization warning: I don't feel close to Angel, so I mostly tried to avoid outright bashing. Looks like it worked.
People who like pentacles, apologies. There are only so many things I can do with 5 equal line segments.


The Story of Angle

Five times Angel was a geometrical figure and one time he didn’t care what he was.

Guess how long I've been meaning to put this together. :)

1. Blew my mind already, and there isn't really any Spuffy to speak of yet - I mean I think nonSpuffy people might love this, too:

I'm certain I forgot and left out other things that are good, in part because it's been a while since the last rec post and who knows what I've forgotten since the beginning of October, in part because keeping track of stuff I read outside of Elysian Fields is hit and miss, and in part because I tried not to make this too long and dear god, does someone have a fic problem. As in, I read a LOT of stuff this time.

Night Vale Drusilla has been doing well

She reached 300 notes on tumblr yesterday, so to celebrate my most popular tumblr post of this year (which I didn't even make this year) and basically most popular thing I've made so far, I'm reposting her here. If you've seen my Buffy screencap - Night Vale tweet edits, you probably have seen her.

Weird at last!Collapse )
AND NOW, WHAT I'VE ACTUALLY BEEN DOING THIS WEEK FOR THE LAST 8 MONTHS!

"Beauty and the Beast" intensifies

Turns out Disney is remaking the movie into something pretty and nostalgic with Emma Watson. I was more excited before I saw the trailer.

Here are some pretty pictures I found while making the "West of the Moon, East of the Sun" moodboard.

Fic moodboards are a lot of fun - like rereading, only more - and I'm going to make a few more. After receiving a comment from the ghost of KnifeEdge, I've given up on picking authors that I think won't see the thing (the original plan was to do this at first so the owners of the words can't tell me I got it wrong - I'm over it).
Seasonal Spuffy repost #2. This is what I was agonizing about. Even still, I have so many outtakes I think I'll make a separate post later.

Based on "West of the Moon, East of the Sun" by KnifeEdge.
The goal was to recreate the feeling/mood of reading the fic, but then, intertextuality happened.
freecat15 helped and isn't responsible for my visual choices.
I don't own any images or other collage ingredients; sources at the bottom of the post, as much as I could find them.

Reposting my Seasonal Spuffy thing #1.

Title: Moodboard for "My Life Closed Twice"
Creator: thenewbuzwuzz

Author's notes
Based on "My Life Closed Twice" by anaross.
The idea to make moodboards for fanfic comes from a tumblr post that I saw sometime this year and didn't manage to track down afterwards. My goal was to arrange pre-existing images and texts so that whoever looks at them would (ideally) feel like I feel when I read the fic.
Thanks goes to the generous freecat15 for quality cheerleading, helping me become unstuck, and providing the valuable perspective of someone who doesn't see into my head, so that I could then ignore it. Any visual blunders are all mine.

Fic I enjoyed in September

Not Spuffy, but I really like it:
Ritual by rafestark. Faith/Tara, sort of Faith/everyone, has a rape warning, 45,520w, E, WIP!
A "take on how BtVS characters would really act in the old FOD scenario", with good characterisation and a refreshing look at the trope.

Liked it despite the Spuffy storyline:
My Life Closed Twice by anaross. Spike/Poetry, Spike/Buffy, needs a rape warning, 110,039w, R.
Post-series, Spike is a poetry professor, and Buffy's his stalker ex. Wonderful poetry analysis and other poetry-related things. The romantic storyline offended my delicate sensibilities, but the fic was still worth reading.

Great Spuffy:
Remember When by tempestt. 253,655w, NC-17, WIP!
All the Dawn backstory! Spike&Dawn caring for each other like family! Soulless Spike's capacity for love! General family-centricness! Fresh and interesting episode rewrites! Xander! Anya! Spike earning people's trust! Recommend wholeheartedly.

Good Spuffy:
