This is the final of my three manips based on screengrabs from “You’re the one that I want“. First the plain manip, then two wallpapers (1280×1024) based on it. Open images in a new window or tab to view full-size.

Wow, am I really the first one to post anything for today’s Free-for-All? That feels really weird, because usually I’m among the last (if not actually late).
My contribution is a follow-up to my Summer Solstice one: a visual comment on the last issue of the comics season 12, reflecting where Spuffy is at right now. If you don’t want to be spoiled for the Season 12 comics, DON’T look under the cut!!
Title: S12 comics limerick and edited panel Creator: Double Dutchess Era: Season 12 comics
Because I have been traveling, I didn’t have the opportunity to make anything substantial for this free-for-all. But inspired by the very recent comics developments, and by ‘s wonderful limericks, I tried my hand at a limerick myself. I know it’s a pretty bad one, but it’s my first, and it was made in about 5 minutes :-) I also did a very quick and simple comics panel edit. (Thanks to for providing the comics page containing this panel.)

Title: Night & Day icons Creator: Double Dutchess Setting: S2, S4, S6 Rating: nothing that was not in the show (might be a tiny bit NSFW though?)
Officially the round is already over in my time zone, but I’ll cheat and post the icon set I’ve been making at the last minute anyway. I didn’t have much time, but still wanted to do something with the theme of this round, so I decided to parasitize an old vid of mine that happened to fit the theme perfectly. The set contrasts and parallels Buffy and Spike’s daytime and nighttime activities. Continue Reading →
Title: Loving You Creator: Double Dutchess Setting: S10-11 (comics) Rating: safe for work
My contribution for this round is a follow-up of my vid “As Time Goes By (Hello Stranger)“, that I made for last year’s Spring round of Seasonal Spuffy. Unlike that one, this one has no story; basically it’s just the Happy Ever After. Health warning: this is super schmoopy. It is so sugary sweet it will make your teeth fall out. Watch at your own risk!
Credits for the comics artwork go to Rebekah Isaacs, Megan Levens, Georges Jeanty, Steve Morris and Phil Noto. The intro with the birds is from Walt Disney’s Bambi. And the song is Loving You by Minnie Riperton.
PS: I will catch up on reading/commenting on everybody else’s contributions for this round soon, I promise!
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!
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) 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).
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…
