I succumb, friends, I succumb...( Come, let us talk about fic!Collapse )Do you have any fanfic goals for the New Year?
Coming out of the LJ-cut so that these are in public. That way I can't back out of working on them! How's that for strategy?
*Finish "When You Wish." *points to resolve face* readerjane
has provided so much incentive in our email discussions of that story that I'll do it just for her if it kills me!
*"The Apocalypse between Day 19 and Day 37" in my soon-to-be "In the Living Season"verse- Yes, dammit, I'm going to create my own 'verse! I live in that post-S5 summer anyway, so I figure I might as well put that to good use. I'm dying to tell the story of how Spike and the Scoobies deal with that first post-Buffy apocalypse, as referenced in ItLS, but it is not going to be lighthearted, so I've got to gear up for the angst.
*An untitled ficlet about Spike in 1916, which I really want to have done for the anniversary of the Battle of the Somme on July 1. I have been playing with this idea for YEARS, and I've got to get around to getting it out!
*More "Blood and Biscuits," of course. :)
*"my so-called calling," an mscl/BtVS mash-up in which Angela Chase is the Chosen One. This is inspired by crackers4jenn
's recent piece on characters from other fandoms being The Slayer. I might need a little prompting on this one from any of you out there who are Lifeheads (1995-speak for mscl fans!), though, or I'll probably end up keeping this one to myself. But here's some potential dialog just to push you to cheer me on:
"You want to smooch him."
"Who?" Willow looks at me coyly. "Angel? Come on, admit it! I'm not gonna tell anyone."
"I love the way he broods," I confess. "About stuff. He broods great. Well, either smoochies or a conversation. Ideally both."
Come on, now. Shouldn't Angela totally be in Sunnydale? ;)
