Hey everybody! I am poking my head out of my burrow with some fandom news! No Rest for the Wicked Awards has announced the winners of Round 11 and several of my f-listies are on the list! Congratulations, all you talented people! I got this little beauty:


It's very cool and warm and fuzzy, but the main thing is to keep on ficcing, amirite? There is no better proof of this than an excellent new story, posted just today by one of the winners, [personal profile] beer_good_foamy . Go, read The Queen, The Soldier as soon as you possibly can. No need to thank me.

Also, sb_fag_ends is inspiring an outpouring of seasonal Poe-themed Spuffy, and if you are inclined to enjoy such things you won't be disappointed. Because there are so many stories going up, comments are few, so if you find something you like, let the author know! I've put up a few things, and have a few more in the pipeline, although this week is really far too busy in real life for me to do as much as I'd like. All are on the lighter side, but that is apparently how I'm rolling nowadays. Here they are:

The Other Half (prompt: The Masque of the Red Death)
Sing It Out (prompt: Spiritual Song)
Spare Me (prompt: The Spectacles)

Have a great Halloween Week, my darlings! I'll be thinking of you!

Congrats! And thanks a lot for the rec!

I really need to find the time to read all those Poe stories...

Congratulations to you, too!

That new story of yours…I'm still thinking about it. It occurred to me that the Queen was just as revolutionary as Buffy, in her way, in that she freed young girls from bearing the burden alone. Every generation does amazing work moving civilization along, but the next batch that comes along tends to undervalue those contributions. To paraphrase Exene, "If it wasn't for your parents, you'd still be eating Wonder Bread. What are YOU going to do to change the world?"

And yeah. Most changes are evolution rather than revolution. Her big triumph - and at the same time her tragedy - is that she's empowered enough to change the target of the narrative, but not the narrative itself. But then, that's asking a lot of one single person...

Congrats! (You already know, it's one of my favorite fics ever, and it deservs every possible award.)
And it's great to see all that of activity sb_fag_ends.

Thanks so much, sweetie! I'm so pleased that you like the story that much. Yes, fag_ends rules!
