Title: Down Memory Lane
Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Pairing: Faith/Dawn
Words / Rating: 1400 words / R for some sexiness
Spoilers / Setting: post-canon
Summary: All Dawn knows is Faith went on a memory walk, and now she's freaked.

A/N: this is for [livejournal.com profile] aaronlisa in the Dawn round of [livejournal.com profile] femslash_minis - my first time writing for that estimable and impressively long-lived exchange. (This was round 98, folks.)

Also here at AO3.

'You don't have to do this,' Dawn says again. )

If you still, years later, accidentally capitalize 'Dawn' on a regular basis.

Title: Additional Work by This Artist
Fandom: Buffyverse
Characters / Pairing: pre-Dawn/Ethan
Words / Rating: 1100 words / G
Summary: It's hard to really despise a man who once let you be Xena for a night.

A/N: written for [personal profile] verity for [livejournal.com profile] shipswap. I was simultaneously delighted and appalled to be assigned Verity in the rare ship exchange. On one hand, I know her likes and dislikes pretty well, and I was thrilled to be writing her a ship we both love with a weird, shifty-eyed love but that I'd never written at length before. OTOH, I had no idea how I was going to keep my assignment secret for two and a half months. Then I ended up visiting her the weekend before the fics were due, so I couldn't even work on it while I was there, because she might ask.

And then she totally didn't ask. At all. Ever. Crisis averted!

Anyway, this is not quite the Dawn/Ethan epic I was hoping to write - and these two crafty, mildly amoral souls deserve epics - but it does go a little way to suggest what I love about their potential dynamic.

Dawn remembers it like this: Buffy came home with a beautiful dress for Halloween, prettier than anything Dawn had ever even seen, much less worn. )

Title: This Is the World We Made
Fandom: Buffyverse, Dollhouse
Characters: Dawn Summers, Dollhouse ensemble
Words / Rating: 1500 / G
Spoilers: for all of both shows
Summary: Dawn's tired of being Buffy Summers' little sister. It takes her a long time to figure out who she is instead.

A/N: This is one of the things that happens when I'm putting off writing the thing that I'm supposed to be writing: I go rooting around in my files and posting unposted fic. Like this one, which is a much expanded version of my Dawn/Topher drabble Unassuming.

This piece is bitterer than my usual; I'm not sure what to make of that. It's the Dollhouse influence, I think.

When Dawn met the Dollhouse staff for the first time, she was on Council business. )

This is apparently the recs post of ficlets about people not Spuffy. I don't think Spike appears once in these fics. I ask you, what's the world coming to?

Much Buffyverse fic goodness this way! )

Speaking of Dawn being the Key, this is a less-than-a-drabble I wrote for [livejournal.com profile] pann_cake's Fandom Love (Mini) Ficathon. Now with slight editing. Prompt for which I wrote it is now also the title.

Title: Or Settle on the Far Side of the Sea
Characters: Dawn, Willow
Spoilers: post-NFA
Words / Rating: 370 / G
Summary: In which Dawn starts taking advantage of certain facts about this whole Key thing.

A/N: What is this? Is it...? Can it be fic?

Well, uh, I shall leave that up to you. This was written in twenty minutes in a chat window (plus some editing later) for [personal profile] verity (whom I'm going to see in two weeks!!!) and all I can say about it is that the Snape+Spuffy mpreg crossover now has competition for CRACKIEST THING I HAVE EVER WRITTEN.

It turns out there are perks to being made of green lightning held in some kind of matrix of mystical equilibrium. )

I realize this is not news, but while enthusing in comments to a post today I realized yet again: y'all, I love Dawn. I also love Anya and Faith and Darla and Illyria and (it took me a while, but I got there eventually!) Buffy, but Dawn? Is my favorite female Buffyverse character of all. She will never not be my girl.

It's that time again. Rather than writing more on the [livejournal.com profile] winter_of_faith thing (which I'm gonna do here any minute now, because it's due tomorrow), I recorded another session of the 30 days of Buffy. I don't know how [livejournal.com profile] quinara manages to answer five questions in one go, because it took me fifteen minutes on two questions this time. Sigh.

Your main fandom of the year? It's still all about BtVS for me.

Your favourite film watched this year? Shoot. I don't keep track of movies the way I do other things. Um, Toy Story 3 was Pixar being brilliant as usual. Also I rediscovered my love for the old Disney cartoon Robin Hood, which is wonderful fun.

Your favourite book read this year? A toss-up here between one/all of Megan Whalen Turner's Eugenides books (I GET IT NOW, YOU GUYS) and Sunshine by Robin McKinley, which despite some shaky worldbuilding was pretty much everything I never knew I wanted in a vampire novel.

Your favourite album or song to listen to this year? If I had to pick one favorite new thing, it'd probably be "Comfort Eagle," by Cake - which is hilarious, because it is sooo not representative of my tastes. But I love it.

Your favourite TV show of the year? Again, I am undecided. I adored the first episode of Sherlock but then felt resoundingly meh about the other two; does that even count? And I devoured the first season of Veronica Mars like a mad, mad thing (seriously, I did pretty much nothing else that week), but can't get up the energy for season 2. Eh.

Your best new fandom discovery of the year? I actually read a fair few stories for Sherlock fandom (mostly because of [livejournal.com profile] ladyofthelog and her enabling recs lists), so I guess we'll say that.

Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year? Season 8. Not that my expectations were high for the comics themselves, but they've made my corner of fandom sad.

Your TV boyfriend of the year? Nobody new. I caught a few episodes of Chuck, though, and ohmygoodness he is still the nicest guy on TV. I want him, please.

Your TV girlfriend of the year? Um. Um? Well, Dawn Summers is still my girl and this year has only made me love her more, so we'll say Dawn.

Your biggest squee moment of the year? About half the scenes in "A Study in Pink": John shooting at the end; Lestrade's "brilliant man / good man" line, which suggested so much yummy potential; pretty much every bit of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman being absolutely perfect. Yeah.

The most missed of your old fandoms? [livejournal.com profile] eowyn_315 and I reminisced about seaQuest DSV quite a bit. I was never fannishly involved, but it was my first TV love.

The fandom you haven't tried yet, but want to? If I end up liking Avatar: The Last Airbender half as much I think I might, then I'm definitely going hunting for the fic that people on the flist have been writing - [livejournal.com profile] stultiloquentia comes to mind. It's a show that's totally different from BtVS, but looks to me like it might have some of the same flexibility. We shall see.
