Things I need

I'm tired of cleaning, I'm tired of cooking, and I'm tired of Aunt Flo. There are things, however, that would make things much nicer:

--Some nice, juicy Buffy/Wesley fic. I was quite enjoying the Sally Bradstreet W/B/S fic someone rec'd the other day, but *pouts* it's WIP! So extra points for finished fic, and a slice of the chocolate cake for B/W/S that's finished!

--How about...something post-Chosen. I'll take anything NC-17 and not involving Andrew. Starring Giles, Spike, or Wesley. Or perhaps all three?

--House elf, please. I promise to give it clothing as soon as the Passover mess is cleaned up.

--Doggie diapers for the ancient and utterly incontinent basset hound.

--Someone to get Melanie Rawn back to writing!

--A list of tunes from the early/mid 80s. Any list. Really.

--Word from Ginmar that she's safe -- my former boss's stepson is there, and Mr Chris's best man from wedding.

--Someone who knows about karaoke systems, audio recording of conferences in large spaces, and lighting.

--Some of that chocolate cake Right.This.Minute!

My fic of course doesn't meet any of your criteria, but I'll send along some virtual doggie diapers and the following list of tunes, chosen without rhyme or reason:

"The Ghost in You," Psychedelic Furs
"I Melt With You," Modern English
"Bizarre Love Triangle," New Order
"The Perfect Girl," the Cure
"I Go Insane," Lindsey Buckingham
"My Ever Changing Moods," Style Council
"Little Red Corvette," Prince
"The Glamorous Life," Sheila E.
"Slave to Love," Bryan Ferry
"Once in A Lifetime," the Talking Heads
"It's In the Way You Use It," Eric Clapton

And hugs!

It's a *perfect* list! Now I have a new mental soundtrack, and it's just in time, too. Seders are soooooo long. Ten minues to takeoff, but I'll be back. The charoseth is done, and the eggs are shelled.

*hugs you back*

--Some nice, juicy Buffy/Wesley fic

Have you read "Symbiosis?" It's by onetwomany. Wishverse, shortish (sorry) NC17: http://www.orchestratedchaos.net/symbiosis.htm

And if that house elf comes by, send him in my direction once you've had your way with him. *g*

::pour some sugar on me...:: Probably not appropriate for Passover, is it? ;-)

*hugs Cindy*

You know, Passover is kinda fun, what with all the wine.

And chocolate.

And yes, that's the fic that started the obsession for me, I think.

Good choice!

*cheers*

Before I married the Italian, I had the Jewish boyfriend, and loved Passover. Pass the latkes, and the matzoh ball soup - but hold the gefilte fish, please. *g*

And now I'm using a really inappropriate icon!

Re: I do have a Post-Chosen fic in the hopper, Chris...
But I already knew you were evil, so 'tis wasted effort!

Now you've reminded me, though. I want to go reread Melon & Honey and Eagles.

So there!

Re: It's a fic with OZ...did I mention that?
Mock all you like, dammit. (Oz, you say? I lurve Oz.)

But why-oh-why is Spike pov Spuffy so damnably hard to find?

(can you tell I've given up yet again on the Buffy/Wesley? Where *does* the good hide?)

Re: I do have a Post-Chosen fic in the hopper, Chris...
And, because this is so much easier than finding your email to feedback from your one-shot page: Did I ever write to tell you that "Hurt, Much" was a mean, evil tease?

Re: Are you saying I didn't deliver on the pain?
Oh no -- pain is there. I just wanted more-more-more. I've been on a hunt for the pinnacle S6 Spike pov for about as long as I can remember. Isn't Sweet Spot AU and (horrors) maybe even Buffy PG?

You're going to make me cave, aren't you?

Re: You have NOT read Sweet Spot?
Ahhhhh. You have made it better. Not one of those AU all human thingies? Good. PG= pregnant. I think I can take one, but not both!

Apologies for the funny acronyms. My caps key gets funky when I'm tipsy (the keyboard, of course, not my typing skills *g*)

Re: Ah...no...Buffy is NOT pregnant...
You made him a GIRL!

(what're you thinking??)

IM...Yeah, that's a thought. But my AOL IM isn't worky yet from the disastrous week of puter fixing.

Re: Oh...and SS is also my response to...
And so now I'm contemplating whether I *want* to read the AU.

This is where it had to end, isn't it? Not that he can let it, but...well, it had to.

I think I like this. It's not as smooth as your usual, but the concept is fascinating. I wanted more depth around what she was feeling, and maybe a little more mouthyness on his part?

It's a re-read it several times fic, to be sure. Fascinating.

Nothing at all of the sort I was pointing myself at tonight, but fascinating nonetheless. And beautifully written, of course.

::wanders off pondering::

I started this whole gender study thing with one of mine (that languishes now for a year untouched), but set it post-Grave... Much more metaphorically driven, but similar point to be made. Huh.

I wonder if you've just resurrected it?

Re: Or Relieve...sheesh...I haven't been drinking at all...
Nods. I had to read, once my brain hit the logical next-step. If you flipped them, and AYW ended the same, but now Buffy's got the external line while Spike has the internal, then of course my brain went directly to: what's her Seeing Red?

The AU is fully formed, isn't it? And this is a rather inverse sort of B/W/S, too. Yes, just the ticket.

I'll try to be more articulate about my thinking on the original SS tomorrow or the next day. You're right that I need to let it marinate. When I say more depth, I don't think I mean emotion. I don't think. Mouthy? That's prob'ly a kink ...

Happy Passover, m'dear.

Fully thought out-- a whole narrative. I feel it in the rhythm of the story. The original was a moment of change -- this is a whole story.

I did, btw, read all the way through what's on geocities ;-) You may have to prod me again when you get more up there, but I'm interested in where this all ends up--or maybe more accurately, I'm interested in how you'll get where it ends up!

And here's an early morning thing for you:

Read it anyway!
