And then Xander and Cordy lived happily ever after the end.

Also, I remembered two other major fannish accomplishments from my exceptionally long haitus: I read A Song of Ice and Fire (and realized I'd been calling it "Song of Fire and Ice" for something like three years. Whoops.) And I read most Robin Hobb's Realm of the Elderings (Farseer, Liveship Traders, and Tawny Man; I think I'll leave the Rain Wilds until the series is complete). I bet you'll never guess who my favorite character is?!

1. Does anyone know if there's a [livejournal.com profile] 50bookchallenge community centered around the 50 states? I.e., for every state, read one book set in that state by an author from that state? Or maybe one focused around the EU states, or the UN states? Because that would be cool.

It's been an hour or so since I saw the meme, but I promise I haven't primped in any way. Mebbe combed my hair a wee.

3. I'm not really fond of quoting shows out of context. Makes me less gleeful when the quotes pop up in context. But meme says we're meant to quote the Buffyverse so here are some from eps we watched recently:

WESLEY: I am from the Watcher's Academy in southern Hampshire. In fact, I happen to be head boy.

CORDELIA: Gee, I wonder how you earned that nickname.

WESLEY: A lot of effort, I don't mind saying. (Angel 4.06 "Spin the Bottle")

++

Buffy: I, I don't understand. Was it m-me? Was I not good?

Angel: You were great. Really. I thought you were a pro. (Buffy the Vampire Slayer 2.14 "Innocence")

Am stalking the poll even though it seems as if the List is pretty much set:

*Buffyverse (99!!)
*Firefly (93)
BSG (59)
new Who (55)
Sarah Connor Chronicles (52)
Bring It On (50)
*Grey's (48)
*Harry Potter (43)
Gossip Girl (43)
*VMars (43)
SG-1 (41)
SGA (40)
Heroes (39)

And some runners-up that might make the list but that I can't write anyhow so no bother. Anyhow. I have starred the shows I can write. I have nowhere near enough BSG and sadly lots of the SG-1 requests are for Vala, and I haven't seen 9/10/AoT STILL. So. Can't do. But I can write Grey's for the first time ever and VMars for the first time in ages because I'm finally caught up on canon, and I can write the Jossverse for the fourth year in a row. \o/ Not the comics, though. Not caught up and they are not my canon.

Anyhow, I know I will request in Buffyverse and Grey's. I just can't choose a third List fandom, or narrow down my choices. Last year I requested just Fred/Lilah -- thinking maybe Fred/Lilah or Joyce/any or Buffy/Willow or Tara/Fred, etc., proving my open-mindedness even though nothing is as hot as Fred/Lilah.

In Grey's, beyond the obvious (Callie/Erica and I haven't seen last night's episode yet but srsly, Callie/Erica!) there is Cristina/Erica, which happily fits ALL MY KINKS, and Bailey/any because Bailey is made of win, and ditto Addison because ADDISON. Especially Addison/Izzie or Addison/Bailey or Addison/Callie. I have so much ♥ for this show RIGHT NOW because GIRLS.

Mmm, nothing else from the List is really exciting me though. I mean, have standby pairings (Firefly: Kaylee/Inara or Kaylee/River, HP: McGonagall/Hermione, Patilcest, Ginny/Hermione, McGonagall/Rose Weasley WHAT you have your kinks I have mine!, SG-1: Sam/Janet), but.

Hm. Seems I could make 2 List requests and 3 Wildcard requests. Think may do that if not inspired in the meantime to e.g. watch Gossip Girl and fall in love with some pairing (that ten to one would not be Serena/Blair because honestly, me we're talking about; is my job to be totally skewed from rest of fandom!)

Anyhow, wildcard!

1. Definitely, definitely Ugly Betty!! &hearts so much. So many awesome female characters. Betty/Christina is OTP (best friends!), or Alexis/any. Hm. Maybe Suarecest (Suarezest?)

2. Peanuts - Marcie/Peppermint Patty. (What, reread cute, cute skating dress arc [Peppermint Patty demands that Marcie design a skating dress for her even though Marcie claims she cannot sew. Is SO HEART.] recently and really feel the need for this NOW.

Remaining Wildcard is a mystery! Could be BSC, could be Main Street, could be BSC RPF, could be folksinger RPF, could be Keeping Up Appearances (or KUA RPF), but minus BSC, likely no one would write these things.

Or could request crossover! Was totally sold on Clueless/Ugly Betty crossover a few weeks ago (Cher/Betty, Amber/Amanda, Cher/any, seriously, there is no lose here. Cher/Alexis. <3<3<3) but there's also old standbys like BtVS/FF (Kaylee/Fred, River/Dawn).

OR [livejournal.com profile] mina_de_malfois so I can demand Mina/Arc ♥ ten kinds of OTP.

Could drop Peanuts to leave room for Mina AND BSC but... I am so flaily! Will reuse most of these at Yuletide, too.

(Current Yuletide thought is Ann RPF, BSC, Main Street, and CA Diaries. An ANN QUADFECTA!)

Which reminds me, CA DIARIES for Femslash08! Sunny/Dawn, Jill/any, or Maggie/Amalia.

Why so difficult!

(I really must buy myself my icons again. I don't have my Buffy/Faith icon anymore! Woe!)

3:24 am -- 1268 words written. Fic is basically outlined. Watched crucial character episode, now have "Least Complicated" on repeat.

4:27 am -- some # of words written in various scenes. Watching Taray stuff now. Oh, S5!Buffy/Giles, why so awesome? (Dynamic complex and hurty, but mostly -- serious, serious chemistry.) Oh yes. Tara is awesome too.

... in my head Tara has the same birthday as me. (Airdate 11/7 and my birthday is 11/3, so not entirely out of the question!)

5:35 -- BUFFY/GILES. SERIOUSLY. Am watching OMwF and oh, that -- rueful resigned look he gives her in "If We're Together." <3<3<3<3<3<3.

Have I ever mentioned I love this show a lot?

6:02 am -- hi Joss. I love OMWF but do you know that "Standing" practically reduced me to tears? Oh, favorite song ever. What's yours? )

7:07 am: Also, I made myself an icon.

There are about 3500 words in the .txt, but a lot of them are outliney stuff, not publishable words. Must drink more coffee and try to write seriously. Seriously!

+Rewatching bits of BtVS for purposes of Secret Slasha.

Oh, SHOW.

(Sadly Spike/Dru and Willow/Giles and Buffy/Angel aren't really Secret Slasha options. Woe! Otoh, am firmly convinced that I really will be happy with any of the three requests I made, so, this is of the good.)

+Got the first season of One Tree Hill from the library. For watching when Secret Santas are done, of course.

+Got girlfriend's package in the mail. I love her a lot, and not just because she sent me fudge.

Today is kind of a good day. Let's have more like it.

Apparently JKR thinks Dumbledore was gay. I... this makes me very pleased, you guys. In my gut kind of pleased. (It's not about the canon -- if it's not in the text, it's not my canon -- it's about the affirmation.)

I dreamt that I was Harry Potter. Only, not a black-haired teenage boy, etc., still me, only filling in my universe the same function Harry fills in his. It involved something about time-travel and needing to go back in time and discovering I needed to kill my younger self, because the evil wasn't external, it was me. (Or possibly, as the dream morphed, the kidlet.)

Then I dreamed that various characters had switched powers -- only it was more an AU where the powers were switched from birth, since (as I explained to my girlfriend in the dream) straight powerswitch, you still have however many years of character development with the canonical powers, but the alwayalready powerswitch, well, Hank McCoy's reaction to growing blue fur is going to be different from, say, William the Bloody's.

Xander got Warren Worthington's power. (YES I DREAMED WINGFIC.) Spike was running for President, which makes me suspect he got Sam Seaborn's power.

It's finally paper-writing day. (Ugh.) You know what that means!

I'd been planning for the next round of drabbles-on-demand to be about Giles, but somehow, I've gotten a bit distracted from my home fandom. So, why not do both!

Old and Kinda Gross (Giles-sex is not!)
Request a (smutty) drabble with any Giles pairing (or threesome etc). Give a one-word prompt. I'll do my best!

Well Spotted (Hermione's a girl!)

Request a (smutty) drabble with any Hermione pairing (or threesome etc.) Give a one-word prompt. Please specify a) if you'd prefer Hermione and her paramour(s) be of age and b) whether Deathly Hallows spoilers are fair game.



If your request spoils either Deathly Hallows or The Long Way Home, please leave generous spoiler-space/use font color=white/make a note in your header so as not to inadvertently spoil readers. :)

Fandoms containing characters who can be paired with Giles and/or Hermione: BtVS, AtS, FF, Farscape, SG-1, SGA (S1 only), BSC, HP, Sports Night, tWW, DS9 (major characters only), House, VMars (S1-2 only), many others.

I've suddenly developed a completely rational fear of being spoiled for Stargate: SG-1. Maybe this would be a good time finally to crack open the S9 DVDs? (Or maybe I should just watch "Abyss" again. And again. And again.)

West Wing S6... finally!

I heard the theme music and my heart swelled. I'm Joss's girl through and through; BtVS is my favorite show in the world and Farscape the most artistically wonderful, but... West Wing has a place in my heart that's not going away.

This will be briefish. My fannish activity in the past monthish has been on the not side.

I watched the first season of Grey's Anatomy. There are no prizes for guessing which character I would really like to have sex with. I mean, all the characters are really pretty and all, but. Gah. So now I've ILL'd the second season so I can watch that even closer to midterms//finals.

There's so much femslash on my flist right now. [livejournal.com profile] femslash07. Yay! Yay! Yay! YAY.

I'm really excited about my Remix assignment. Perhaps I should start writing it pretty soon.

Ann M. Martin is writing a new series (Ann's letter is here). About a fabric store. This is so great I couldn't possibly be making it up. (Also, the characters will AGE. ♥)

I hear yesterday was the tenth anniversary of B:tVS beginning to air in the US. I didn't start watching anywhere near the beginning, but this is still exciting news. Happy anniversary, fandom.

So just for kicks I went through the Buffyverse fic index to count how many discrete pairings I'd written.

Um.

Um.

97.

Not including Buffyverse1000 stuff that never made it to this journal.

Um.

My name is Ari, and I have 97 true pairings.

(That is... that is 10% of Buffyverse1000, right here in my journal.)

Incidentally, the pairings I've written the most of? It's a tie. Between Giles/Willow and Fred/Kaylee, with 7 pieces each. Not that my fic-writing-habits in any way, shape, or form reveal anything else about me!

[post title is an allusion to the wonderous Xander/Oz fic [livejournal.com profile] kindkit wrote last Christmas, The Official 'Willow's Ex Boyfriends' Club, Membership 2]


The BtVS boys are my favorites when it comes to boyslash. Lots of really well written fics this year:
+1000 Deaths. Oz/Xander. Fast cars.

+Hopeless. Xander/Andrew. Excellent voices, sweet but not cloying, and oh, Andrew's crush on Xander. Yay.

+Christmas Dinner. Xander/Giles. This is the fic that was written for me, and it's adorable. I squealed like a girl.

+Let Us Not Talk Falsely Now. Giles/Oz. A twisty little love poem. "there's talking and then there's talking, and there's tacit understanding."

+"Of all the cafes, in all the towns...". Giles/Oz. More squee-worthy banter with a lovely ending.

And two with Angel:
+Some Were Born To Sing the Blues. Angel/Oz. Not my pairing at all, but this is a lovely little piece with temptations and compromises and imperfect decisions. It's, well, bluesy.

+Two Demons That Made It Happen. Angel/Wesley. Gooey. Gooey, gooey, gooey, this fic brings the funny, the hurt/comfort, two adorably dorky boys, and did I mention that this is the warm fuzzy kind of fic? "The shrimp puffs are bait."

Some gorgeous girlslash:
+Self Portrait In Two Colours. Nina/Virginia, exquisitely described.

+Shimmer. Tara/Lilah. Mmm, Tara/Lilah in the afterlife, with bonus imagery, pretty dresses, and hot sex. I love afterlives.

+Trip. Willow/Dawn. Warning: non-con. But oh man. The images. Willow trips, and it's trippy, and the whole thing is one gorgeous trip. Perfect S6 crack-addled Willow.

Some fun girlslash:
+You'll Find That Your Arms Are Fine And Strong. Anya/Tara. SQUEAL. The best Anya voice I've seen in a good long while, this made me grin all the way through. It's set late S6, and Tara seems a little young, but Anya is perfect, and the fic is sweet and funny and adorable.

+And a Pinch of Pure Evil. Harmony/Fred. Harmony is incredibly fun, and so is girlslash.
