One Step Away banner and icon

So, I was going to make this thing for this round of Seasonal Spuffy, and then I didn’t make it. I started preparations, but a couple of months ago all progress halted because of NO TIME. So, I’ll be aiming for the (hopefully) upcoming Spring round instead.

Anyway, I still wanted to make at least some contribution to the current round, and this is all I could come up with. At least it’s within the theme!

Falling Hard

Title: School Hard – Falling
Medium: vid
Creator: Double Dutchess

In the nick of time, a quickly thrown together School Hard vidlet, inspired by my current Twin Peaks rewatch :-)

UPDATE: I’m editing my post to add a note that I didn’t have the energy for last night when I posted this, after my struggle to (more or less) meet the School Hard weekend deadline.

NOTE: The song is “Falling” by Julee Cruise from the Twin Peaks soundtrack. It sounds both romantic and ominous and creepy. I think those last properties make it very suitable for School Hard, where (let’s be honest) Spike is creepily stalking Buffy. “Are we falling in love?” the song asks. (Yes, it’s a question, not a statement. The “are we” bit is just not very well audible in the lyrics.) The answer as I see it is no, not then and there. Not yet. Certainly not Buffy, although she’s clearly fascinated and intrigued by Spike. Spike, on the other hand, is definitely falling for her, but at this stage it’s lust and obsession he’s falling into, not love. And probably he would have vehemently denied this if he’d been asked at the time. Still, this is where it all starts — the Spuffy seed is being planted.

Vid: As Time Goes By (Hello Stranger)

Vid: As Time Goes By (Hello Stranger)
Creator: Double Dutchess
Setting: Comic seasons 8-11
Rating: other (a couple of sexy images, but nothing explicit)
Comics art: Georges Jeanty, Cliff Richards, Megan Levens, Rebekah Isaacs

So, my offering for this round is a vid. Not a regular one, but a comics based one. Technically, it is a slide show, but I tried to turn it into something more than that. And for those of you who haven’t kept up with the comics: yes, when Spike shows up in S8 he has a space ship…

If you’re in one of the 4 countries where the video is blocked, you can also watch it on Vimeo (hopefully it isn’t blocked there).

Icons: Under the Influence

Happy Seasonal Spuffy everyone! Sorry for my lack of comments so far; I’ve been needing the litle fannish time I’ve had to finish my own contribution. Unsurprisingly, it’s icons: a set showing various Spuffy interactions “under the influence”. (I could think of a few more, but these are all I had time for.) Also, apologies for not posting before twelve in my time zone. But if I’d done that, my contribution would have been about half as small…

Spuffy zodiac icons

Good to see Seasonal Spuffy in full swing! For my posting day, unsurprisingly, I bring icons. This round’s theme made me think of the Aquarius song from Hair (This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius), so I decided to make icons for each zodiac sign.

Each icon comes in two versions: one with, and one without the zodiac symbol. I suspect most people will prefer the latter, as they’re more multi-purpose (and to be honest, some of the symbols don’t have much added value). There are also a few extras.

Feel free to snag!
