Spuffy screencaps meet tumblr text posts

Title: Spuffy screencaps meet tumblr text posts
Creator: thenewbuzwuzz
Rating: probably R for profanity. Not worksafe.
Notes: so. This isn’t the first, second, or third project that I started with the intention of posting on this round. Apparently I’m making them in reverse order. *shrugs* This is kind of a placeholder. Think of it as more time to read “In for a Penny” or something. ;)

Betas: I asked for help with some content that has since shifted to Chapter 3, and what I received from darkheartwalsh, il_mio_capitano, freecat15, and rahirah was the most amazing, thoughtful, detailed, inspiring, and all-around awesome constructive criticism — for the entire story — I’ve ever been blessed with. Not to mention on short notice, too! Any and all errors you see are the result of my very last minute revisions. THANK YOU!
A/N: Once again, this story has a happy ending. (My wonderful betas have seen it.) ;)Previously: Dreamless – Chapter 1

Fic: Five times Spike and Buffy were under the influence of… and one time they weren’t

It’s my posting day, yay!

I was quite shocked when I saw garnigal ‘s entry (as much as there was still room for more shock, given her posting date), and even more so when I saw how really amazing it is. (If you haven’t read it, I strongly recommend you go do it!) But my awesome cheer-me-on beta thenewbuzwuzz  told me (unasked, I might add :) thank you for that, honey!) I shouldn’t worry, it was different enough from mine, so I stopped thinking about throwing it away and go into hiding on my posting day.

Mine lacks the total awesomeness that is garnigal’s almost poetic piece and is intstead more of a run-of-the-mill fic, but hey, I offer more words, that’s something, right?

A huge thanks to my two betas! While Thenewbuzwuzz was my first impression voice on the raw draft, encouraged me and pointed out some ‘huh?’-moments, my amzing long-time beta (well, it is more than a year now, is it?) seapealsh took care of all those preposition errors, the weird cases of ‘-ing’ or not to ‘-ing’, and generally all those things that happen when a non-native speaker butchers your wonderful language. I’d be lost without her. Thank you both so much!!!

I also want to thank the mods for all the work they put into making this amazing event possible, time after time!
So, here goes… enjoy!

Buffy Vs Donald

Title: Buffy Vs Donald
Author: Puddinhead
Pairings: Buffy/Spike
Rating: PG
Length: 5K
Timeline: Season 6
Warning: This is a goofy ‘what if…’ and my lame attempt to get out the vote in the US today. If you love Trump, you will not have a good time. But hey, between us, if you love that egomaniacal, oompa-loompa, Caleb-wannabe, what are you doing here? Seriously. Have you watched stuff by Whedon?
Thanks to VampyreLover, Susan, and All4Spike for the beta. Mistakes and political viewpoints are my own.  Continue Reading

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…

Free for all day: blackout poems from shooting scripts

Good morning! *beams* It’s a beautiful day to ship Spuffy.

The idea: Because any Buffy script can be Spuffy if you read between the lines. ;)
Thanks: to the mods for making the whole thing happen; freecat15 for encouraging me; the absent tumblr user alightintheswamp for betaing the “Welcome to the Hellmouth” poem.
Explanations & excuses: The poems are NOT set during the episodes that the words are from. I’ve included text versions and two kinds of clickable image versions, so if you want you can try and read the classic blackout way, or look at where the words came from. I ignore capitalization for the text versions, and I messed with the unused parts of the text a little so that the images wouldn’t be too huge.
Rating Tagging NC-17 in case, for mentions of sex.
Medium: blackout poetry.
Other pairings: not intentionally. I’ve stretched the name “Will” to mean William the Bloody in one line, so if that doesn’t work for you, it’s a Willow/Buffy poem. I hope it does work for you.
Disclaimer: All the words were written by Joss Whedon and David Greenwalt. I merely selected the ones I like best. The only pay I’m after is attention.

Seeing Pink (alternative)

This entry is part 3 of 3 of the story Seeing Pink

Title: Seeing Pink
Rating: PG-13 (I think)
Medium: fanfic
Disclaimer: I don’t own Buffy!
Summary: A spuffy fan’s take on how to change Seeing Red to get a happy ending and a “new era”. This is pure wish fulfilment. Written for Seasonal Spuffy. I’m so excited!
Warnings and notes:
– Seeing Red upsets me so I decided to change the entire thing to fit my tastes.
– Contains reference to the episode ‘Seeing Red’ and so consequently to rape.
– I have changed things to meet my needs – and/or my muses demands.
– It is from Spike’s POV
– Flashbacks are in italics – and taken directly from the show.

Sorry, I tried to post it to livejournal as we are supposed to but as LJ, in it’s infinite wisdom decided that it apparently has nothing better to do today than force everything to have to be submitted at least five times, destroy the formatting and then – when it is finally correct and perfect in preview – remove all paragraphs once it is actually posted I realise that it might actually be a bit hard to read. Below is a link to it on Dark Solace so that it is actually readable:

FIC: Kintsugi (NC-17, Spike/Buffy) by enigmaticblue

Title: Kintsugi
Author: enigmaticblues
Rating: NC-17
Disclaimer: I don’t own these characters; too bad, so sad.
Pairings/Characters: Spike/Buffy, Dawn, Willow
Spoilers: Smashed/Wrecked, a sequel to The Temporary Nature of Any Precious Thing, and part of my ongoing series.
Word Count: ~13,500
Warnings: Vague references to past bad acts, consistent with the show
Summary: Brokenness can be beautiful, particularly when you can be broken together.
A/N: WARNING: There is mention of the fearsome foursome (Angelus, Darla, Drusilla, and Spike) as well as references to what they got up to. It’s relatively vague, and I don’t think it would be triggery (far less graphic than the mentions of what they did in the series), but YMMV. If you’re concerned, it’s in Part III, and you can scroll right past if you need to.

Written for the 2016 spring Seasonal Spuffy challenge, A New Era, with a hat-tip to garnigal for the title. For those of you who don’t know, kintsugi is the Japanese art of golden repair: repairing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum. As a philosophy it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, and not something to disguise. For the purposes of this fic, the prior story ended somewhere in the vicinity of “Smashed/Wrecked” and this one picks up right after that one.

Note: If I haven’t already nattered on enough, I am throwing canon out the window here. This is a smaller story than I had intended, but real life got in the way, and it’s not quite as long as I wanted it to be. I hope you all enjoy it anyway. It’s posted on AO3 due to RL getting in the way.

Flames – Free for All Day

633480_original.jpgTitle: Flames
Creator: comlodge
Characters: Buffy and Spike – of course
Rating: R – sexual themes – explicit sexual descriptions in story. Images are worksafe.
Medium: Fanvid/Podcast – Artwork – Banners and Wallpapers
Disclaimer: For fun and entertainment only
Summary: Yes folks. Something completly different for me. Comlodge has read her naughty little fic, a sensual Spuffy interlude during their full on S6 affair. It’s a podcast recorded as a video showing several pieces by comlodge herself that do not necessarily match the timing of the story line. They are pretty though. The music is Gympoiedia by Incompetech. The images are included after the video. The video is set to adults only on youtube. I might add, that it is dashed hard recording yourself reading even a short story, lol. Fun though. The video was uploaded in high def and is best viewed full screen if you wish to study the images. Just saying. :D

Fic: A New Life

Just in time for my posting day double_dutchess posted the beautiful icon that I of course had to snag right away :) Thank you for allowing it!
Many thanks to my two betas, my dear friend braxen, who encouraged me to sign up in the first place after reading the raw draft and gave me some very good advice, and my wonderful, spontaneous, reliable and most sensitive beta seapealsh who cares for you not being taken out of the story by my second-language mistakes.
After all the fantastic posts until now I’m even more proud to participate!

Not your average couple….

For my posting day for this round, I present two banners with wallpapers, Warm Chanpagne and Leather and Leather, under the cut. Totally worksafe. Here is a bunch of icons made from the two pieces. Feel free to snag any, be inspired to write stories or already have a story they’d suit. Happy to personalise if required.

I’ve written a bit about my process after the images, for anyone interested. My goal here was to create a tribute to the comics using screen caps. So a combination of paint, photorealistic and drawing.
