I don't know quite what happened (maybe it was RL taking over?), but I actually only read two books in June and July...and one of those was a re-read. *is embarrassed*

*drumroll*

So here they are:

1. Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon - 4th book in the Outlander series, and every bit as good as the other three.
2. Club Dead by Charlaine Harris - 3rd book in the Sookie Stackhouse series. Re-read to prepare me for the next book in the series. I read the first three books a while ago, but never got around to reading the rest - even though I enjoyed the first three and own them all. Hmm...I can't think why I'm so keen to read them now. *g*

And that's it.

I did read a lot of classic Spike/Buffy fanfiction, though. I went through a lot of my old links and saved as many of my favourite stories as I could find. So many of the old archives are disappearing and I'd hate to lose any of the amazing fic I've read over the years. We're lucky to have had so many wonderful storytellers in our fandom!

Late to the party (as I always seem to be these days), but the amazing [livejournal.com profile] the_royal_anna has posted another beautiful piece of Spike/Buffy meta. Definitely one not to miss if you're a Spuffy fan!

"It wouldn't be you, Spike. It would never be you. You're beneath me."

*happy sigh*

Enjoy!

I've just read the first chapter of an excellent new fic by [livejournal.com profile] gabrielleabelle. She's new to my flist, but is someone I'd like to get to know better. Her meta posts are fascinating, but this is the first time I've read any fanfic by her. It definitely won't be the last!

Title: Influence of Demons
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Spuffy
Summary: Goes AU after S5's Checkpoint. Five years ago, Buffy and Spike fell into a portal to a dimension ruled by demons. Finally, reunited, their goal is to get back home. However, the years in this dimension have changed them. Spike's long isolation keeps him distant, and Buffy's enforced life at a brothel has caused her to forget the Slayer she used to be. Somehow, they'll have to find themselves again to defeat a powerful enemy and make it home.

Only one chapter posted so far, but I'm completely hooked already. Such an intriguing start! I'll definitely be following this one.

Enjoy! :)

A list of Spuffy fanfic read (or re-read) in May. Some authors are new to me, while others are old favourites. All stories are complete.

Please take heed of all warnings and Authors Notes before reading. Age consent required on some sites.

Enjoy!

More to come at the end of June. :)
caliente_uk: (john and jack)
Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] elisi, I've just seen one of the best Jack vids I've ever seen. A must-see for any Jack Harkness fan! :)

With all the JM and Cap'n John squeeing I've been doing, you might be forgiven for not realising that I'm also a fan of JB, Cap'n Jack, and indeed of Torchwood itself (although the first series was a bit hit and miss for me). This video reminded me of exactly why I love the character so much:

Behind Blue Eyes by [livejournal.com profile] obfreak

I've always associated the song Behind Blue Eyes with Spike (how could you not?) and didn't think that it would work for me in a Jack vid, but it really, really does!

Enjoy! :)

A few thoughts about Spike, John Hart and JM )

After having an almost complete break from the internet for a while, I thought it was about time I showed my face again. :)

And what better way to show my face than with a couple of fanfic recs?

During my absence I've been immersing myself in Spuffy fanfic. Practically drowning myself in it, in fact. Rather than allowing myself to wallow in a bucket of self-pity (which would have been *so* easy to do *g*), I've thrown myself head first into the wonderful world that is Spike and Buffy.

So on we go with the Spuffy. :)

Let's Get Lost by [livejournal.com profile] herself_nyc

From the author:

A slayer on the run from her duties, and a vampire on the run from his soul, meet up in summertime Manhattan, 1997 ... and like everyone else in summertime Manhattan, head out to the East End of Long Island ....

Now complete, with a sequel planned for the future. This one has *really* started people talking. Unforgettable. Join [livejournal.com profile] herself_nyc_fic to read.

Heart Don't Lie by [livejournal.com profile] nautibitz

From the author:

An authorized sequel to OFQ (Original Fanfic Queen) Saber ShadowKitten's "Humping Like Bunnies" (Read it first! You shan't be sorry.) She supplied the brilliant title for a sequel, I went from there. In the previous story, Buffy and Spike were -- oops! -- transformed into rabbits by Willow. Humping naturally ensued. Here's the zany aftermath.

As good as complete, with an epilogue to come. Hot, funny, hot, snarky, moving, smutty, brilliant dialogue...and did I say hot? ;) Excellent! Join [livejournal.com profile] nautific to read.

And last but not least, the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] anaross has started a new Spuffy fic! Only one chapter so far:

Gimme Shelter Chapter One by [livejournal.com profile] anaross

From the author:

AU after Not Fade Away. Takes place in London. Giles is running the Slayer, Inc., and has bunches of teenaged girls defying his every command.

Amnesia fic! What's not to love? :)

All three fics are completely different, but are all Spuffy at they're very best. Enjoy!

And for those of you on my flist who might be interested...

I'm going to Cardiff. Yay! :D

It seems that June is the month for great new communities! Want a general icon - one that's not related to a particular fandom or celebrity? Then [livejournal.com profile] gen_icons is just the place for you. Go check it out now! :)

I'm slowly easing myself back into fandom life again following my enforced absence due to RL issues. While the issues of my RL still remain, I feel that the time is right for me to try and get some sort of "normality" back into my life again. And that most definitely includes fandom. As crazy as fandom can be at times, it really does help keep me sane! :D

And before I forget, congratulations to the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] lmbossy on the birth of her new baby daughter! I can't tell you how good it feels to be able to announce some good news for a change. :D I'm so happy for you, Claire! Can't wait to see the new arrival. I'm sure she's every bit as lovely as her Mum! *squishes you* K sends lots of love and kisses to you both. *hugs*
caliente_uk: (fanfic love)
Much later than planned, here is the second of my fanfic rec posts. Better late than never, I hope! :)

Warning: Many of the fics recc'ed here are rated NC-17. That means that they're suitable for adults only. Please don't read unless you're old enough.

All fics are Spike/Buffy unless otherwise stated.

Fic Recs )

So that's it for part 2. More to come over the next couple of weeks. :)

Pimp Time!

The [livejournal.com profile] buffyversetop5 community is open for business again. Some wonderful recs have already been posted, so go take a look...and if you can think of a Buffyverse top 5 list of your own, go for it! :)

[livejournal.com profile] kallysten has finally finished In Fire and Blood, which imho is one of her best Spuffy stories yet! Take heed of the warning (it's there for a reason), but put your trust in [livejournal.com profile] kallysten and you won't be disappointed. I wouldn't have missed this story for the world! :)

Two other stories I must rec (even though they've been finished for a little while) are Under the Sun by [livejournal.com profile] enigmatic_blue (which is the sequel to Avocation) and Beg the Liquid Red by [livejournal.com profile] eurydice72. Two excellent stories which are a must read! I'm a huge fan of both of these writers and they've never let me down yet. Just wonderful! :)

New Fic!

[livejournal.com profile] herself_nyc has completed a new Spuffy fic! It's been written for the Spuffy Smutathon, is called A Totally Random Occurrence and can be found at her website here.

Enjoy! :D
