What are we doing here?

Welcome to friends new and old!

I'm mostly here for the Buffy fandom. I write a little, rec a little, and read A LOT. Most of my posts are fandom-related and not very frequent. I hang out in or moderate several Buffy-related communities, which you can find among the links on my sidebar. I've got lots of interests in various media — literature, music, comics, movies, theater — but Joss Whedon managed to get me actively involved. All my stories have at least one foot in the Jossverse.

I think of myself as a multi-shipper or gen writer. Check out my D'Hoffryn/Skip or Mr. Gordo/Miss Edith works, if you doubt me! Most of my work is cheerful, with just a twist of morbid. I've written a bunch of Spike/Dru historical shorts, because they are great. However, I am probably most identified with Spike/Buffy. I've also written a few wacky crossovers, including a rare non-Buffy The Avengers/Pulp Fiction drabble that IMHO ended up becoming canon in the sequel. *\o/*

I am Rebcake everywhere: AO3, Twisting The Hellmouth, Dreamwidth, Elysian Fields, The Spuffy Realm, The Bloodshedverse, Tumblr, Whedonesque, etc. Finding me is easy peasy. I'm not on Twitter, though. That Rebcake is somebody else.

I live in in a purple Victorian in beautiful-but-changing San Francisco, California. I originally hail from small town Oregon. I am a package designer by trade and work is crazy busy, hence the infrequent updates. I have a husband, a kid, step-kids, step-grandkids, and a huge sprawling extended family, including in-laws, none of whom live in Northern California. Sometimes that's peachy, sometimes not so much. I've been traveling more often lately to deal with family matters. I lean left, politically and socially. I went to UC Santa Cruz at roughly the same time as Buffy writer/producer Marti Noxon, which explains much and nothing at all.

Exciting news! A couple of my stories recently received acknowledgments in Round 11 of the Running With Scissors Awards! Both are Spuffy stories originally posted to noel_of_spike:

When You Wish Upon A Bar won the Unsung Hero Award in the Doomed (Best Guy/Girl) category.
The Vamp Around the Corner was the Runner Up in the Nobody’s Butt Monkey (Best Characterization) category for Joyce.

Thanks again to whoever nominated my work! Several worthy f-listers also won awards. Congratulations to you all!

Thanks, sweetie! You never know with these things. I nominated some stories that were more than worthy. But, having been a judge (once, in another set of awards) I know that the rubric used can result in surprises!

I thought it was really nice to see so many "non-standard" pairings getting nods :)

True! The awards I helped to judge, back when, were entirely for rare pairs, which was something I could get behind. There was only one round, alas.

Wait, did I know you live in San Francisco and went to UC Santa Cruz? I had no idea Marti Noxon went there, too. I obviously live under a comfy rock.

Congratulations on the awards!

I don't know if you knew then what you know now, you know? However, I know that you sometimes come through town, so we should plan to meet up next time you do!

Yep, Marti did indeed go to Uncle Charlie's Summer Camp, which is why there are so many references in S4 Buffy that have special resonance for me. Heh.

Thanks, sweetie!
