It's rec time!

(1) Not Buffyverse

Síofra by sandalwoodbox (Pied Piper of Hamelin, T, 6872w)
This brilliant sci-fi fairytale captured my attention instantly and held me enthralled all the way to the horrific end. ;) Mind the warnings. Thanks to dreamkist for the rec!

["Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there. I did not die."] by zarabithia (antrophomorphic: Tumblr/Fandom, worksafe, tiny)
It's fic about the nippocalypse, of course I liked it.

The Morning After by ambyr (fandom history antrophomorphic: Pinboard/Fandom, T, 605w)
Whoa, I thought the kudos count was the word count. I'm afraid this is only going to be fun if you know some of the backstory about Delicious and Pinboard, BUT, if you don't and if you're into fandom history, I highly recommend (again) reading/listening to the backstory: Fan is a Tool-Using Animal by Maciej CegÅ‚owski - audio, transcript. Thanks to [personal profile] kitewithfish for starting me down this whole rabbit hole.

Not Leaving Kudos by bunn (Readers/Stories, G, 624w)
Cathartic. The summary says it all: "They came, they read, they left silently. Why?"

Kudos At All Costs by rhymer23 (some cultural references but no set fandom, Readers/Stories, G, 1533w)
The necessary and wonderful companion piece to bunn's story.

(2) Buffyverse, not Spuffy

Radio Silence by beer_good (crossover with Welcome to Night Vale, T, 1628w)
Author's summary: "The Gentlemen drop by Night Vale. This poses something of a problem for a radio host who depends on his voice to communicate. Not to mention for the people in town who aren't too keen on having their hearts cut out."
Genius concept, well-executed. \o/ Just as fun as everyone has been saying all along.

Bad Girl Warm-Up by KillerSnotMonster (Fuffy, 1741w, M)
A lovely missing scene fic that felt real, in part because it was as awkward as it should have been. I've no problem adding this to my headcanon. ^^

Precipitation by GraceNM (Cordelia/Faith, 2047w, T)
Grace convinced me that Cordy and Faith could find common ground, if deftly caught at just the right point in time. Lovely character work.

(3) Spuffy

Seek a Desolate Shade by Twinkles (NC-17, 24,139w, complete)
Part of the story is lovingly set in New Zealand, there's original poetry and illustrations, and established-relationship Spuffy, and a mythical dragon-type creature: so much awesome. :) *Note: Angel is fairly evil in this one.

Ripples on a Hellmouth by stuffandnonsense (Buffy&Willow even more than Buffy/Spike, R, 27,739w as of January 2, WIP! but close to completion, and the remaining chapters are already written)
It's a time travel fix-it, om nom nom! :D I like stuffandnonsense's thoughtful character insights as usual, and the future fluctuates in exciting ways.

Secret Santa by SpindleKitten (G, 4,609w, complete)
It was sweet and heartwarming, maybe even more in a family way than a shippy way. I like that the characters had a good Christmas while broke.

Under My Skin by Rebcake (T, 8107w, complete)
This is such a lovely Spuffy wedding. If I ever marry Spike, that's how I want it to go.

The Key to Buffy’s…. by bewildered (NC-17, 4029w as of December 29th, WIP!)
Sentient loofah POV, and it's The Key. Does justice to yellowb's prompt so far. Note that the loofah hates Riley.

I remember reading 2 of the last 3 of your non-Buffyverse set but couldn't quite remember if I'd read At All Costs. (Turns out I had since I couldn't leave kudos). My favorite was the Odysseus part.

Thanks for the recs! In particular the Kudos ones; they were awesome.

I've already read (or am reading) almost all your Spuffy recs -- go Seasonal Spuffy! -- and I second them. The one by Twinkles is already on my To Read list, but I guess I should be moving it up a bit:-)

Oh wow, stuffandnonsense is back? I remember reading her writing back in the day! Thanks for compiling. It's nice to see some familiar usernames and even better, new ones!
