Recs #15

Jun 07, 2011 20:20

Much Spuffy and one Wes-and-Faith thing. In particular, much Spuffy by brutti_ma_buoni or from sb_fag_ends or both, which between them are the sources for something like 75% of all the Buffyverse fic I've read recently.

Also, a note: it occurred to me that it's weird for me as a mod over at seasonal_spuffy to single out particular fics from the comm, but I urge all you Spuffy-inclined ( Read more... )

Thank you for the rec! It might interest you to know that the expansion of that 'verse has sunk in claws and taken over my brain. It can no longer be considered a plot bunny, but a rabid plot raccoon. And every time my brain goes to logically explain that I don't have enough time to dedicate to creating an early-season, apocalyptic, no soul no chip, spuffy AU, the raccoon snarls at me. Usually something like, "But Lorne is awesome," or "Angel/Darla interaction," or my personal favorite, "Here have an actual plot so you can't use that excuse anymore. Sucker." So yeah. You'll probably be seeing more.

Lorne is awesome, and YAY Angel/Darla interaction! It is a very worthy premise; I'll be thrilled to see it fleshed out more.

It is a very worthy premise Oh, I hope so. I'm not even sort of driving the train at this point. My mind is not my own. While washing my hair two days ago I was attacked with plot that involved The Key. Because this needed to be more complicated.

I'll be thrilled to see it fleshed out more. Thank you!

Excellent, excellent recs. Every single one of them unique and not of the run-of-the-mill Spuffy. Wes/Faith is always a plus.

I've pretty much had my fill of run-of-the-mill Spuffy. It's the really imaginative, plotty stuff that gets me excited now. Like these!

I would be open to reading more Wes-Faith and Wes/Faith, but I think I just do not read in the right circles; I'm so very much more a BtVS fan than an Ats fan.

*nods*

So much fic about this ship assumes that they enjoy a transcendent, glorious sex life, for which, if they (and by 'they' we mean 'Buffy') have any brains at all, they shuck friendships, responsibilities, and innermost convictions. Bleah. This, on the other hand, is about a relationship that may finally be coming together into something workable and also about the awkward sex that comes with. Wonderful for the voices and the awkwardness, emotional and physical, that feels real instead of fantastic.

You are a goddess, you know that? thank you for putting into words what I find myself thinking a lot lately.

I am always delighted to get comments on these very old posts. I'm glad I was able to articulate something for you. Personally, I find the obsession with that permeates a lot of Spuffy fic to be really off-putting. There's just so much else to their relationship. *grumble grumble*
