Remember when I wanted to make a mood board for WotM,EotS, but got distracted by the intertextuality and made something more like a list of references in picture form? Well, at minimal prompting from [livejournal.com profile] dancingdragon3 over at [livejournal.com profile] myth_fan, I threw together a post about the fairytale references and parallels in the fic that distracted me. I violently dislike how disjointed and incomplete this post is (and, also, it did the thing where it sounds like a draft for a school assignment), but if you're prepared to wade through it, I'd love to know what other WotM,EotS readers think about all the varied fairytaleness. I'm certain there's a lot that other people have noticed or remembered about WotM,EotS and I haven't!

Whew, finally got around to finishing a thing. :)
This is a shot at capturing some of the feeling of reading the Spuffy fic Campfires (29,930w, NC-17, all-human AU, on EF here, on AO3 here) by Niamh ([livejournal.com profile] tangwstyl).

Valjean came to the bishop with good comic timing (the bishop's housekeeper Mme Maiglore JUST warned him about the scary ex-convict). Valjean's life was miserable, the state was badly organized, callous, and unjust. It was veritably dreadful (though I saw Victor playing the dreadfulness up, and it ruined the mood), but the more the narrator went on about how bad it is, the less interested I became. Does he think I'm slow on the uptake?

I scooped approximately 600 words together into something that almost has a plot. I mean, time passes, so that's something. I'm not sure it has any other redeeming qualities. Puns aren't a redeeming quality, right?
Reworded characterization warning: I don't feel close to Angel, so I mostly tried to avoid outright bashing. Looks like it worked.
People who like pentacles, apologies. There are only so many things I can do with 5 equal line segments.


The Story of Angle

Five times Angel was a geometrical figure and one time he didn’t care what he was.

I'm certain I forgot and left out other things that are good, in part because it's been a while since the last rec post and who knows what I've forgotten since the beginning of October, in part because keeping track of stuff I read outside of Elysian Fields is hit and miss, and in part because I tried not to make this too long and dear god, does someone have a fic problem. As in, I read a LOT of stuff this time.

She reached 300 notes on tumblr yesterday, so to celebrate my most popular tumblr post of this year (which I didn't even make this year) and basically most popular thing I've made so far, I'm reposting her here. If you've seen my Buffy screencap - Night Vale tweet edits, you probably have seen her.

Weird at last! )

Turns out Disney is remaking the movie into something pretty and nostalgic with Emma Watson. I was more excited before I saw the trailer.

Here are some pretty pictures I found while making the "West of the Moon, East of the Sun" moodboard.

Fic moodboards are a lot of fun - like rereading, only more - and I'm going to make a few more. After receiving a comment from the ghost of KnifeEdge, I've given up on picking authors that I think won't see the thing (the original plan was to do this at first so the owners of the words can't tell me I got it wrong - I'm over it).

Seasonal Spuffy repost #2. This is what I was agonizing about. Even still, I have so many outtakes I think I'll make a separate post later.

Title: Moodboard for "West of the Moon, East of the Sun"
Creator: thenewbuzwuzz

Author's notes
Based on "West of the Moon, East of the Sun" by KnifeEdge.
The goal was to recreate the feeling/mood of reading the fic, but then, intertextuality happened.
[livejournal.com profile] freecat15 helped and isn't responsible for my visual choices.
I don't own any images or other collage ingredients; sources at the bottom of the post, as much as I could find them.

Reposting my Seasonal Spuffy thing #1.

Title: Moodboard for "My Life Closed Twice"
Creator: thenewbuzwuzz

Author's notes
Based on "My Life Closed Twice" by anaross.
The idea to make moodboards for fanfic comes from a tumblr post that I saw sometime this year and didn't manage to track down afterwards. My goal was to arrange pre-existing images and texts so that whoever looks at them would (ideally) feel like I feel when I read the fic.
Thanks goes to the generous [livejournal.com profile] freecat15 for quality cheerleading, helping me become unstuck, and providing the valuable perspective of someone who doesn't see into my head, so that I could then ignore it. Any visual blunders are all mine.
I don't own any images or other collage ingredients: sources at the bottom of the post.

Not Spuffy, but I really like it:
Ritual by rafestark. Faith/Tara, sort of Faith/everyone, has a rape warning, 45,520w, E, WIP!
A "take on how BtVS characters would really act in the old FOD scenario", with good characterisation and a refreshing look at the trope.

Liked it despite the Spuffy storyline:
My Life Closed Twice by anaross. Spike/Poetry, Spike/Buffy, needs a rape warning, 110,039w, R.
Post-series, Spike is a poetry professor, and Buffy's his stalker ex. Wonderful poetry analysis and other poetry-related things. The romantic storyline offended my delicate sensibilities, but the fic was still worth reading.

Great Spuffy:
Remember When by tempestt. 253,655w, NC-17, WIP!
All the Dawn backstory! Spike&Dawn caring for each other like family! Soulless Spike's capacity for love! General family-centricness! Fresh and interesting episode rewrites! Xander! Anya! Spike earning people's trust! Recommend wholeheartedly.

Good Spuffy:

I read a fic that made me want to write a villanelle. I'll rec later, with warnings and disclaimers, but meanwhile, here's what I made. It's fandom-free (except for rhyming night with bite), slightly broken, and strongly influenced by "Bill Bergson, Master Detective" ("Mästerdetektiven Blomkvist").

I'll be seeing a lot more of this view with my new commuting direction.
It was built in the 20s, using the top parts of German zeppelin hangars (and I think that's kind of amazing).

1. Not Spuffy, but I loved it

Altered States series by trepkos, 348,521w, mostly M, Spike/Riley. Take my word as a person whose initial attitude was "how would you even ship that and what for": it was amazing. Ask me how. )

2. Fave Spuffy

Blood by tei, 2836w, E. Actually read in July, but lost track of it among the other bloodfic (great problem to have). I love that this exists.

Hide and Seek by dreamweaver, 37,257w, NC-17. Turns out that dreamweaver's fics get repetitive when you archive binge on them, but this one is definitely worth it for the identity porn (Spike's human and demon sides and Buffy's relation to both). It's also fun to try and figure out what is going on.
Running Wild by dreamweaver, 63,244w, NC-17. Season 5 trip to parallel dimension with truly fascinating and fun worldbuilding. Side plotline: life is kind to Anya for a change.

Look, it's 200 words of meta thinly disguised as fiction! This is a good day.
They're all about Truman the security guy. Don't even ask. :D Warnings: melodrama, suicide, POV character losing faith in humanity.
