Jossverse morality: updated? (musings on recent IDW comics)

March 21st, 2011 (07:50 pm)
Tags: ,

This is a compilation from my posts on different forums (BuffyForums, SlayAlive, BuffyBoards, IDW Forums) - I wanted to collect my random thoughts in one post.

When BtVS season 8 ended, it seemed that surprises were over till the next season. Of course, IDW still publishes "Angel" comics, but we know their outcome, because the events of season 8 take place later. Anyway, latest events on IDW comics proved that there are surprises in store.
Spoilers for Spike#6 and Illyria:HauntedCollapse )

I'm shocked. I'm proud. I'm embarrassed.

I won in "Best Author" category in Round 9 of rwsawards

Bloody Brilliant (Author)
Winner: moscow_watcher *writing her otp or trying her hand at another pairing all together, she's a brilliant author that will make you care about the characters/pairings she writes even if they don't happen to be your favorites.*


The embarrassing part? It happened a month ago, and I somehow missed it. I'm pathetic.

I want to thank wonderful, talented and generous maintainers of the community - darkgoddessgege and obsessionbased - as well as anonymous judges who selected me. It's a great honor and I feel flattered and have I already mentioned embarrassed?

Big congratulations to my fellow fans - angelus2hot, rebcake, brutti_ma_buoni , kudagirl, snogged, velvetwhip, duh_i_read, lilbreck, kitty_poker, spikesredqueen, snowpuppies, purplefeen, rahirah, kallie_kat.

And enormous thanks to the fandom. It's the most rewarding place online.

Five funniest Spuffy fics

January 12th, 2011 (09:06 pm)

Wedding From Hell - verse by shapinglight
http://www.livejournal.com/tools/memories.bml?user=shapinglight&keyword=Wedding%20From%20Hellverse&filter=all
PG-13 verging on R for a bit of suggestive naughtiness. Alternate season 4 in which Buffy and Spike got married. Shapinglight makes the most of the situation, marrying her own spin with overall Buffyverse absurdity -- with Angel as best man, Dru as maid of honor, and Buffy/Faith bodyswap at the most inappropriate moment. Outrageously funny.

Waterworld, original (Joss?) ending (rough cut)

December 26th, 2010 (07:22 pm)

I finally uploaded on YouTube the original ending of Waterworld (1995) - the ending most likely written by Joss Whedon, judging by its mythical feel and the cruel irony of the final twist. angearia, thank you again for your invaluable help!

Angel. The Fall

December 13th, 2010 (05:09 pm)

The main complaints against Angel's arc I saw online boil down to two claims: a) Angel is out of character and b) to service Buffy's journey, Angel is destroyed.

Judging by Jeanty's Q&As, Angel's arc in season 8 is over. He won't be in #40. It's time to sum up his story. What the hell has happened to him?
Angel, Joss wayCollapse )

Putin's Buffy

December 10th, 2010 (12:59 am)

I don't know if I should laugh or be angry.

Vladimir Putin has named his new dog Buffy.
"It's soft, kind and sounds nice," Putin said.


ETA:
Putin and Buffy have already met in the fic The Summit by Valerie X.

Thank you!

Our fandom is such a generous and rewarding community. Recently I've got so many awards and nominations that it's a bit scary. Being a Joss fan, I wonder - where's the catch?

Shinies are under the cutCollapse )
I'm overwhelmed. Thank you, guys. I'm very grateful to the wonderful people who run the award communities, to those who nominated me and voted for me; to the fans who read and comment on my stories, fanart and reviews; to all the people who write and debate about Buffyverse on LJ and forums. Even those who disagree with me and argue against my views, I'm grateful to you, because our arguments keep the fire burning, keep the interest alive. You're a bunch of incredibly erudite, talented and generous people.

An award - and some thoughts on Buffy/Angel

October 21st, 2010 (12:41 am)

Yay! I've got a shiny award in the 4-th round of No Rest For the Wicked awards as the runner-up in the category "I Was Made To Love You" (best romance/fluff) for my fic A Ghost Story.

award


It's a big surprise because a) the story was written 3 years ago and b) it's a Buffy/Angel fic (while the overwhelming majority of my f-list are Spuffy shippers).

Anyway, the award made me think again about Buffy/Angel on TV and in season 8.

Today is my posting day on seasonal_spuffy community. I felt compelled to write a fluffy reunion fic to make up for all the recent frustrations in the fandom - so, here it is. Photobucket


Banner by fabulously talented sentine (click on the pic for bigger version)


TITLE: LADIES PREFER BLONDES
DISCLAIMER: Characters belong to Joss Whedon. Idea belongs to James Marsters. I own absolutely nothing.
LENGTH: 3,000 words (30 drabbles)
RATING: PG-13
TIMELINE: Post-Chosen. Vague comics spoilers.
GENRE: Comedy, fluff.
SYNOPSIS: A Spuffy reunion without embarassing circumstances? Impossible!
NOTES: Thanks to my wonderful, patient, supportive beta extraordinaire deird1!

Question: What would you do if Willow had cast
a spell on Spike to be a woman for a day?
James Marsters: Lesbian sex with Buffy. A lot of it.

Buffy #37: Miss Kitty Fantastico Twilight Strikes Back.

October 10th, 2010 (04:30 pm)
Tags: ,

First of all, I want to apologize to Scott Allie for not trusting him. I admit, I was wrong thinking that he could destroy the dynamic between Buffy and Spike. #37 proves that he can write vintage Spuffy: sexual tension between characters is palpable on every panel. Thank you, Mr. Allie! The issue made me swoon, laugh, go "awww", twist my brains over the plot and mark 3 Nov. - the day when the next issue will be on sale - with red marker.
