Angel Book of Days
Rec/Link/Pimp/Ho, sorry, where was I?

justhuman took my request for "Tell me what happened to Files and Records, please!" and turned it into an absolutely lovely, detail-rich story of one woman's search for herself, and a place to call home - even if that place is Wolfram and Hart.

There's even some Lilah friendship/subtext in there, which I wanted greatly but used up my allowed number of specifications before I could ask for it -- so either JH read my mind, or a little birdie told her, or it's just happy coincidence -- but I'm thrilled with the entire story.

It's called Baa Baa Black Sheep and it can be found on JH's and piedmargaret's wonderful Angel Book of Days challenge site.

My own entry was co-written with the great and butt-saving zortified, which the PTB let me get away with a) out of the generosity of their hearts and b) because I was a backup writer, and so didn't get my assignment as early as most of the challenge participants. It was written for spikewriter, who requested Lorne, Lilah, and nobody dies. ;-)

I must have hallucinated the part where she wanted them naked...

No Day At The Beach.

My dear, you are a goddess. When I put those in, I was hoping for some delicious bitchiness and you certainly delivered.

There was a better chance of Metallica putting out a children's gospel record. Bwah!

I am very pleased and very delighted. Oh, and the naked part was the whipped cream with a cherry on the top. ;)

Metallica's new sound was all zortified's doing. ;-)

I'm so glad you liked it -- believe me when I say I was looking at it three minutes before mailing it in, asking myself "Am I on crack? No, seriously, you'd tell me, right?"

/me jumps up and down in happiness and blushes at the lovely rec :-)

I'm so glad that you liked the fic! The little bird didn't whisper to me, but lol, it's not an unfounded suspicion. I had more thoughts kicking around the back of my mind about F&R and Lilah, but I couldn't quite get them out in a coherent fashion.

Somewhere early in the fic I realized that F&R was gay - but I don't think that she realized it back in the 40's, and later, she wasn't letting in that type of emotion...at least not consciously. She likes looking at boys, but not so much the playing with them.

I do -- I loved it. It's a kind of long character/gen story that I desperately wish I was good at writing myself, and am not -- so getting one written *for* me was wonderful!

I've had this thing abour F&R forever, and so wished they'd used her again. I think she and Lilah managed to have more chemistry in their few minutes onscreen than some couples have had during season-long relationships (coughwillowkennedycough)
