Ficlet: Stars in Her Eyes

btvs_spuf_carpet
Just popping in to say I did a ficlet for [community profile] sb_fag_ends! It's for their February "My Bloody Valentine" challenge. Is it possible to do fluffy S&M? If so, I guess that's what this is.

Title: Stars in Her Eyes
Author: Rebcake
Word count: 570
Rating: R
Warnings: Not exactly sex, but not sweet romance, either.
Prompt: Diamond necklace cat o'nine tails
Summary: Spike has found an extreme way to help Buffy blow off steam.

Since I talked to you last, McDiva and I went to Chicago for a long weekend. It snowed! We did lots of things! Fun was had! This week is the start of her school's run of SPAMALOT, which is sure to be silly. College acceptances are coming in. Taxes are done. Work is busy. I did housework last weekend and got a blister. Dear Old Dad is coming for a visit next week. I'm hoping to be around these parts a bit more after the next couple of weeks. Woo! Oh, except for the trip to NYC in a month! Double woo!

TV in Briefs

doctor
I actually wear comfy yoga pants (that's trousers to you) to watch television. It's usually a group activity at our place, with the TV-less neighbors coming over bearing plates of cheese and chocolate. I'm watching more stuff than usual this year. Not sure why, but I like to think it's because there are things on worth watching. Here are my TV thoughts for this fall:

Rating: PG
Word count: 2350

Girls in Movies, Monster and Otherwise

btvs_darla_scared
I think I'm starting to come up with my own way of evaluating movies, which starts with the Bechdel Test (thanks, Alison!), uses a variation on[personal profile] hello_spikey's "man candy" criteria, and adds a few more items. It doesn't necessarily correlate with how much I like a film. It isn't an indication of overall quality. It's very individual, and if a movie doesn't have at least five of these things, it's probably not a movie that I'm going to be excited about seeing:

1. Does it pass the Bechdel Test? 1 point
2. Does it show positive female relationships? 1 point
3. Does it show female characters being smart? 1 point
4. Does it show female characters being awesome AND kind? 1 point
5. Are there any gratuitous female gaze shots of scantily clad pretty men? 1 point
6. Was there any non-bashing gay content? 1 point
7. Was I at any point pleasantly surprised or amused? 1 point

I like genre, but I'm not a fan of the straight-up horror movie genre. However there are some movies with those elements that strike my fancy. In the past week I've seen Kick Ass 2 which is about one kind of horror, and Warm Bodies, which is about an entirely different kind. I have thoughts. They aren't deep, but a few of them are superficially spoilery. My evaluations below.

Warm Bodies was pretty much great...Collapse )

Kick Ass 2 is absolutely ridiculous...Collapse )

I just got back from my annual Gal's Weekend with a bunch of pals from college, for which I am the designated film fest curator. That means that I show up with a dozen choices and the group whittles it down to maybe two for Saturday night viewing. It came down to Bride & Prejudice and Whip It this year.

Bride & Prejudice, no surprise, follows a familiar and beloved story, plus so very pretty!Collapse )

Whip It is a delightful trifle about alt-roller derby.Collapse )

Bonus Attack the Block...Collapse )

In which I have a small complaint

btvs_buffy_whatever
I know everybody likes to rag on LiveJournal, and rightly so, but I'm a little miffed at Dreamwidth right now. Apparently, if you don't have a paid account, you can't get notifications of a response to a comment you made in another person's journal. How is that okay? Doesn't that negate the whole point of people talking to each other? I bite my nail at you, Dreamwidth. I also apologize for not responding to people who thought they were having a conversation with me on DW.

This is on top of my discontent with the way they decide willy-nilly which icons you will be left with when your paid account expires. Essentially I'm unhappy with my FREE STUFF not being how I want it. Gosh. What's wrong with people?

In other news, as soon as I get out from under this mountain of work, I'm going to McDiva's art show, the Death of DOMA rally in the Castro, a Frameline (LGBT, etc) Film Festival film, and more partying in the street! Whatever shall I wear to the Pride Celebration?

What's going on.

btvs_faith
Just a quick check-in to say: computer/phone/tech upgrades suck. But I'm getting there. Look, ma! Internet browsing: go! Moving on.

Best thing about yesterday was McDiva announcing that she now has the perfect comeback to the "why don't you smile, sweetheart" question to which females are so often subjected. "The patriarchy." Of course! Why didn't all of us think of that a million years ago?

Vacation time! College tour time! Two travel treats in one!Collapse )

The death part...Collapse )

In fandom news, I fluffed my [community profile] seasonal_spuffy day, which was the day after we got back from our trip. But the story is about 2/3 of the way done, I promise. I might've finished it in time for free-for-all day, but spent all day Saturday with a new friend who just finished watching Buffy for the first time. We went to Much Ado About Nothing, watched Dr. Horrible's Sing-along Blog, the Shakespeare Retold version of Taming of the Shrew, had dinner and then watched the Firefly pilot. It was a bit much, but she's young. Heh. I'm going to get back to the story writing...between tech support calls, work, jury duty, doctor's appointments, etc. We all need moar fic, amirite?

Blow out my candles!

btvs_fai_moi
Forgive me, friends list. It has been a week since my last post. In that time, so much has happened, the non-fannish high points being:

1. Bela Fleck at the new SF Jazz Center. Banjo fun! (Also, dinner beforehand with dear friends.)
2. Gershwin and Ravel at the SF Symphony with Dear Old Dad, who was in town for....
3. McDiva's Third Annual Fashion Show! Big doings! A triumph! One of these days, I'll post pictures.
4. A whole bunch of school-related stuff, and also work related, well, work.
5. Huge flurry of getting ready for vacation/college tour week. Still on-going. Why else would I be making a post?

But I had to note that today is the fifth anniversary of posting my first fanfic on LJ! Just five years after Buffy the Vampire Slayer went off the air. Late to the party, but very happy to be here. [personal profile] herself_nyc encouraged me to try my hand, and I posted without knowing it was her birthday! So, now it's a milestone day for two reasons. Happy birthday to you, darling, and happy fanniversary to me. I hoped to have some fic to post today, but that's not happening. I am working on my Seasonal Spuffy story, though, so there will be something soon!

Love to you all!

\o/!!!

cake_or_death

I am ridiculously happy to report that MiAmor scored tickets to see "Much Ado About Nothing" at the San Francisco International Film Festival! I've been hoping for this ever since Joss said that the film was going to film festivals first, "because it is fancy".

I've been, and continue to be, virtually without Internet acces, as I'm away helping my mom get her house habitable after she was finally able to evict her "tenant". Who hadn't paid rent in 3 years. And, to nobody's surprise, left a gawdawful mess. As if in answer to an understandable lack of faith in human behavior, her neighbors have been pitching in to a breathtaking extent. Just when you want to say "people are no damn good", they up and do the sweetest things. So, I'm in the middle of a modern-day barn raising, and it is good.

I'll be back next week. Have lots of fun without me!

Fic Roundup 2012

btvs_spru_goodgames
Hey, look! It's January! My fic output continued apace last year. I never feel like I do much, and compared to many of you, I don’t. I wrote fewer stories, but because they were longer (for me) stories, the total word output is about the same as it's ever been since I began this whirlygig of fun nearly five years ago.

What I did last year in fandom...Collapse )

Fic: The Vamp Around the Corner

btvs_spi_hello
I've got a new, finished fic posted over at noel_of_spike! Complete in 3 chapters!

Title: The Vamp Around the Corner
Author: Rebcake
Rating: PG13
Word Count: 7850 in 3 chapters
Characters: Buffy, Spike, Joyce, Dawn, Willow, Tara
A/N: Takes place in an AR wherein Buffy was called to Slayerhood according to schedule, but did not move to the Hellmouth until her freshman year of college. NOT a Wishverse fic. Many thanks to shapinglight for betaing, though she can't be blamed for changes that happened after her read-through. Contains dialogue swipes from BtVS. I do not own…yada…strictly not for profit…yada…
Summary: When the Slayer's family moves house in her second year of college, a new neighbor swiftly becomes all she wants for Christmas. His wants are decidedly more complicated.

CHAPTER 1 / CHAPTER 2 / CHAPTER 3

Inspiration for this came from lutamira, who put up a list of tropes and asked for characters and pairings to go with them. I decided I wanted to see Spike and Buffy in a "next door neighbor AU", while retaining their vamp/slayer natures. One shower later, I had what I deemed to be a workable idea. You may judge for yourself whether you agree.

Happy End of the Year!

btvs_spi_hello
Happy New Year's Eve, Kittehs! I am logged in at my dear old Ma's localish library to get in a last bit of posting in 2012!

I've been on the road and computerless for weeks now, and withdrawl in setting in. I even forgot to tell you about a fic I am writing for noel_of_spike:

The Vamp Around the Corner Alternate Reality Spike/Buffy, WIP
When the Slayer's family moves house in her second year of college, a new neighbor swiftly becomes all she wants for Christmas. His wants are decidedly more complicated.

I'll post the conclusion when I get back from my travels/travails. It's with the beta, now, I swear. Look forward to more hanging out with you all next year!!!

ats_squee_lorne
The winners were announced over at the Sunnydale Memorial Fanfiction Awards! Many people on my flist were honored, including fandom stalwarts beer_good_foamy, bogwitch, lilachigh, lit_gal, and rahirah (Barb_C), one who has moved on to other fandoms goldenusagi, and relative newcomers red_satin_doll and spuffy_luvr! Congratulations to all! Alas, some excellent stories and authors did not receive their due, as sometimes happens. I voted for you, sweeties!

I was thrilled that my story Whose Torment Is This, Anyway? received recognition in a few categories.Winner for Best Post-Series Finale, Runner up for Best Characterization — Female (Buffy) and Best Romance!Collapse )

SMFA still open for voting!

btvs_buf_tease
Who knew? Sunnydale Memorial Fanfiction Awards has extended it's voting window until this Friday, Dec. 14th! I understand there are several ties at the moment. Go! Vote! Make some deserving author happy for the holidays! Rules are here, nominees are here, and voting is here.

Full disclosure: My story Whose Torment Is This, Anyway? is nominated in several categories, due to some kind person(s). I am also nominated in the "Best Author, Spuffy" category. *wipes tears* (I can't tell if they are tears of joy or mirth, but either way it's all good.)



Several excellent writers from my friend list and beyond are on the ballot this round. Good luck, everybody!

Fic: Fire in the Soul (5/?)

btvs_spuf _tempted
A new chapter of that Buffyverse San Francisco story/travelogue for my seasonal_spuffy posting day! For reals!

Title: Fire in the Soul (5/?)
Author: Rebcake
Rating: PG13
Word count: 4100
Pairing: Spike/Buffy, with Dru and OCs.
A/N: Thanks for the quickie betas by shapinglight and MiAmor. Some photos contained herein are copyrighted as noted. NOT comics compliant.
Summary: A few years after Sunnydale’s spectacular demise, Buffy and her crew are getting on with their lives in San Francisco. A not entirely unwelcome blast from her past (Spike! It's Spike!) blows into town, but he’s brought more than the generally allowable amount of baggage with him.

Previously:
Chapter 1 on LJ / Chapter 1 on DW — In which a "chance" encounter leads to strong language and less-than-adult behavior. Also: animal magnetism.
Chapter 2a on LJ / Chapter 2a on DW — In which Dawn makes her feelings known and Buffy tries not to.
Chapter 2bc on LJ / Chapter 2bc on DW— In which Buffy gets on with her Sunday, which naturally ends up being weird.
Chapter 3 on LJ / Chapter 3 on DW — In which Buffy checks in with Giles and has another bizarre vampire meet up.
Chapter 4 on LJ / Chapter 4 on DW — In which Buffy possibly overthinks things before she and Spike try that new-fangled “communication” thing.

New today:
Chapter 5 on LJ / Chapter 5 on DW — In which Spike and Buffy lick their respective wounds after a communication breakdown.

Spike watched the plastic bottles from the overturned recycling bin bounce anemically down the street...Collapse )

Word count: 985
Rating: PG
Characters: Spike, Lady!Buffy, Pirate!Larry, Soldier!Xander, Angel, Cordelia, Demon!Kids, Dru
Summary: Spike picks up a few things at Ethan’s Costume Shop, and is dragged by the collar into chaos.

Follow the link to the story:

Spike fingered the collar hanging in the shop. Made him a bit nostalgic...

Stuff plus drabble: A Transitional Period

btvs_snyder
First, thank you to whoever nominated Whose Torment Is This, Anyway? for the 27th round of the Sunnydale Memorial Fanfiction Awards!


That is pretty darned sweet, lemme tell you.

I watched some old movies this weekend and went off the range a bit. I wrote a drabble, see, but it's not of the Buffyverse. That hardly ever happens. Anyway, here it is, my first (and last?) The Avengers/Pulp Fiction crossover! It's still ostensibly Jossverse, though!


Title: A Transitional Period
Author: Rebcake
Fandoms: The Avengers (movie) / Pulp Fiction
Characters: Nick Fury, Steve Rogers
Rating: PG13, but Language
Word count: 100
Summary: Nick Fury has walked a long road to get to this point.

Drabble under the cut for a bad, bad word...Collapse )
