Not So Secret Not So Slasha Except Kinda


I didn't do Secret Slasha this year; lo, I am a parasite on the fanfiction community, who sits back and reaps the glorious benefits of all the new fiction, without having contributed. Muahahahahaha.

No, really. Okay, not really. Really, I didn't think another ficathon right now would be helpful for my holiday-season sanity, and I feel much more relaxed for the [lack of] experience. And I get to read all the new stories, muahahaha.

In lieu of doing Secret Slasha, I played in the btvs_santa exchange, in which one could write stories, but there were also options for icons, graphics, journal designs, and just about every other type of fanwork.

settiai was my Secret Santa, and along with several lovely icons, including this one, she made both the new Spike/Giles graphic for my journal, and a Spike/Angel vid. wondersheep will find it doubly entertaining, as I did, not just for its slashy fun, but for the fact that it's to Ring of Fire...

I, on the other hand, was _green_'s Seekrit Santa. Aside from far more icons than a normal human can or would want to use even with the 50-icon limit, my main project was a wee Dawn/Amanda songvid, based around Potential. Which is a) set to a Leonardo's Bride song, b) in WMP format, and c) here: I'll Believe You.


Also, Happy New Year!

So not! The oldies but goodies stand the test of time, and continue to please readers. For example, I am just now reading Chocolatey Goodness, which my bunnyohare recommended to me.

You are an amazing writer, I am so hooked. I stayed up almost all night reading through part 8c.

For a long time the only pairings I would read were slashy Andrew ones, but your writing is so awesome that I now adore S/X as well. And it kind of explains the logic of a story I read a while back in which Spike and Xander, a longtime shag couple looking for a bit of tail to spice things up after several years, initiate Andrew together in a weird little threesome. I wish I could remember the title of that one.

*grin* Thank you -- so cool that I could pimp you into S/X. Though perhaps I should run and hide when you get to part 17 of CG and realize it just kind of... stops...

I still like the idea of me as a big mosquito though. Sluuuurrrrrp -- all your Secret Slasha fics are belong to me, and I didn't even have to write one. Nyah!

The Spike/Xander/Andrew -- was this a recent one, posted on LJ? Argh. It wa someone on my friendslit but I can't remember *who*! It'll drive me nuts now!

Actually I think I read it on one of my Andrew yahoo groups, FCFMTheList, inner_geekdom, mittFic, or xandrew. Probably xandrew. But if there is more than one such story, if they aren't the same ones, I will be pleased. More slash is better than less slash. :-)

It was flaming_muse (and myska_x) who wrote the ones I remember. They're all linked here and they go Making Plans, Seeing It Through, Aftermath. (Since that's not the order FM has them linked in, thought you'd want the chronological order.)

Thank you! I loved them. Not the same ones, which is good, because more new fic to read is definitely pleasing. Very well written.

I'm glad that you liked your presents. *grin* I've been meaning to attempt making a slashy songvid for ages, but I've always been too lazy to try...
