Officially Marking It Somewhere
Since I'm not about to bitch about it on the list.


Sometimes BBF drives me *fucking* nuts.

And there's a difference between "I'm not sure how to write this anymore" and "the love is gone."

And I'm not sure if anybody noticed this, but pre Anna reccing S/X pieces (and thus apparently making it ok, and god Anna I love you and I love your work but if people don't stop deciding that slash/[S/X] is cool now because *you* like it, I'm going to scream and stomp and scream some more, 'kay? And then suck my thumb) on the list? You know how often they were recced?

This is *not* a popular pairing when it comes to being recced in cross-fandom arenas. Just because y'all are annoyed with the proliferation of it in the last couple of *months* -- which happened because a well-respected bifictional writer started recommending it and so the rest of us felt we could maybe come out of the closet on a list that has previously *not* been welcoming to slash (you think you have, but you haven't) -- does *not* make it the flood-the-airwaves pairing that you actually have to call a "Non-S/X recs day" for. Get a fucking grip.

Hi. I may be a bit cranky.

Since I started watching the show in S4 and reading fic during the summer before S5, well... I'm still a little baffled that the appeal of S/X is supposed to be a novelty.

That's pretty much when I started too -- but then, summer after season 4 was the heydey of S/X fic. There'd been the domestic situation during S4, Xander and Anya weren't as 'Whoa, damn, we have a Relationship' as they later became, Spike was ship-free... A lot of readers -- and viewers - have poured in since then, though,who cut their teeth on Spike's obssession with Buffy in S5 and/or actual relationship in S6, plus the incredibly antagonistic (not in a sexy way) relationship between Xander and Spike in S6.The pairing probably seems farfetched at best to many of those folks.
