So, she said, begging like the shameless trollop that she is, does anyone out there have or feel inspired to write an essay on Spike-and-slash for S/X & Violence? Or Spike-and-love/relationships, even, so long as it doesn't rule out slash, or (given the nature of the site) actively oppose the S/X pairing.

The BtVS Writers' Guild folks have revised the requirements for guild sites, so that now instead of a rather loose "essays about the characters and pairing" guideline, there's a very specific "Must have at least one essay about each character and at least one about the pairing" requirement. We have several essays on the pairing and something like 1.5 Xandercentric essays (though more would be very welcome) but the Spikecentric content is dodgy to say the least. Consisting as it does of mini-features on Spike's cars and nicknames for Xander, and a good part of Mer's essay on beating one-off plot points to death.

Anyone? Beuller? No length requirement per se, and no restrictions other than not being anti-slash or anti-S/X, and more Spike-centered than focusing on any specific pairing.

toss me some bullet points you think would be nice if included and I might be able to whip something up for you --

my 15 WIP-fics are in holding patterns - or something of the sort - and I have a whole lunch break to play with -- and writing relaxes me - oddly enough - so - toss me some info and I'll give it a go, if'n you'd like.....

Maybe that second suggestion I made for narcolepticcat, that he's not working on yet? I think several people could have useful takes on the plausibility of Spike slash based on canon references in eps (including Angel) and on his characterisation.
