Somebody Out There Is Awesome!

I haven't been posting much, on the theory that if I don't have anything nice to say I'd probably better not, you know? I've been commenting tons, because I have loads of nice things to say about what my friends are doing! Y'all rock! Plus: hooray, hooray, Seasonal_Spuffy begins today!

But! Then! Whoa! Some incredibly kind and generous person just gave me the gift of a year of a Dreamwidth paid account! Totally anonymous and everything! I suspect it's someone who is sick of me bellyaching in all my DW comments that I don't have enough icons...I am a wheel, hear me squeak. Still! Thanks for being so awesome, kind giftor! I am a happy, icon-loading camper! And look: posting to DW directly. If the LJ crosspost goes smoothly, I'll be in for the long haul.

Also, I scored tickets to the Tom Lenk Live in San Francisco show for next month, so I've got to share my excitement about that! The Golden Guys play in LA was canceled last month, so no Enver or Sasha Roiz or Jane E. for me, alas, but I suspect Tom will be a ton o' fun all on his own.

Ain't life grand?

P.S. I've been writing oodles of Spike & Buffy stories, but I can't quite seem to close the deal on any of them. Comics fallout? Yea or Nay?

You're in San Francisco? I never knew that! I'm only two hours south and my bff lives there! I thought I was in fandom no man's land on the west coast!

Re: actual stuff post was about - I think there is some comics ennui going on. While I never had the discipline to sit my ass down and write, I always had tons of ideas for Buffy-Spike stories. Now that I've actually signed up for S_S? Well has run dry. I have an outline to an epic that I'm wrangling with because dude, if I'm too ADHD to write more than comment fic or wee little ficlets, how the hell can I expect myself to sit down and write an epic? Prayer? I don't think God appreciates my fandom prayers, even if He's amused by them . . . just look what we got in #37. It was all a fantasy and I blame God, not Scott Allie.

Orly? Where? Santa Cruz? Monterey? Prunedale? There are actually loads of fans on the West Coast (Nauti, Snick, Abelina, Zanthi, etc.), but you gotta admit the coast is a large one...

I find that having a deadline and a great deal of panic is what gets me to write. Or at least to find a good place to stop writing, so that the thing is, as they say in the business, "finished".

I think railing at God for our disappointments in the Buffyverse is just about as effective as every other approach. Except DIY Buffyverse, of course. That trick always works! Go forth and be fruitful!

I'm near Monterey, though I was in LA for school for three years. I've written some insomnia Dawn/Spike post-"The Gift" fic that deals with Dawn's opinion that Buffy could have loved Spike already, so I don't know if it's S_S worthy or not, but DUDE. IT'S WRITTEN. I might try to get a chapter done on my epic fic of OMWF epicness, and post both of those so I feel like an accomplished participant, and I also have some art I commissioned from a friend back when Penguin Spuffy was big, so I'll have something to post regardless. Yay for harassing friends to get you over your comic wangst!

I rail at God over every little thing, He made me this pathetically petty, and I like to think I amuse Him. We're cool like that.

I would be interested to see your Dawn story, since I also think that Buffy loved Spike pre-The Gift. I might even post meta one day. Maybe on my SS day! There is definitely something appealing about having something ready in advance of your posting day. Or so I hear.

I think it's getting a lot of us that way.

And you're on DW? Okay if I friend you there?

Surely you jest. I'm under the same name there. See you real soon!

It sounds good. The kid (14) went back and forth about whether to go, but finally opted to heed the warnings and stay away. It's tough being on the edge of almost old enough.

All too possible. But on the offchance it's just a lack of deadline stress, I want a completed Spike and Buffy story from you by the end of the week, Ms Cake. Or there will be Consequences.*

*waits*

*These consequences may be invisible, inaudible or otherwise unnoticeable. But any suggestion they don't exist should be avoided, for fear of More Consequences of similar ilk.

You beat me to it!

Reb, I'll match Brutti's consequences. I wants more Reb!fic, I does! But make sure there's one left over for S_S, of course.

*\o/* Tom Lenk Show tickets!!

I keep finding more icons and I only have 110 icons spaces and a lot of icons from different fandoms/people and it's so HARD to choose!!
