For Trick or Treat my recip gave me a bunch of great characters to work with and carte blanche in terms of femslash ships, and so I wrote this Dru/Faith fic that involves dreams and a corset and other old-fashioned underwear.

silk ribbons (986 words) by Snickfic
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Rating: Mature
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Drusilla/Faith Lehane
Characters: Drusilla (BtVS), Faith Lehane
Additional Tags: Dreams, Undressing, Seduction
Summary:

She pouts, lips pursed, and Faith doesn’t go in for weird chicks but she’d kiss those lips. She’d lean in right now if this freaking corset weren’t holding her so stiff.

I've been wanting to write Buffy/Faith a/b/o for ages. This is... not exactly what I planned to write? But I enjoyed writing it, and here it is.

I matched on Faith/Giles for [livejournal.com profile] rarepairfest, and after a solid six weeks of scrabbling around, trying to decide what to write, I ended up saying screw it, obviously the solution is world-saving fuck or die.

I wrote the last of this story less than 24 hours before it went live, and I honestly have no idea whether it's any good. But hey, I finished it. And yay, Faith/Giles.

The Clockwork Circuit of the Stars (2099 words) by Snickfic
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Rupert Giles/Faith Lehane
Characters: Rupert Giles, Faith Lehane
Additional Tags: Post-Canon, Ritual Sex, Fuck Or Die, Slayer-Watcher Relationship
Summary:

“So, Cliffnotes,” Buffy said. The table might’ve been round, but there was still no question which one of them was queen. “Slayer and watcher do the hokey-pokey, and the world keeps turning itself around.”

A long, thick, syrupy silence followed. Faith broke it by laughing, and everyone turned to glare. “What, like it’s going to be anyone except me and G?”

[community profile] trickortreatex authors are revealed! I wrote five things, which I'm lumping here all in one post for convenience. I had a lot of fun playing in basically all my fandoms, especially since the Buffy characters I want to write usually aren't eligible for exchanges.

However, out of the bunch I definitely had a couple of favorites: the hockey fic (which at 4k feels absurdly long for a treat in a 300 word exchange, but oh well) and the steampunk Meg/Castiel. Because, you know, steampunk Meg/Castiel. Even if the fic doesn't really have a plot, as such.

When In Doubt, Set It On Fire - hockey RPF, Crosby/Ovechkin, 4000 words
First Sidney tells Alex Consol's ice is cursed. Then he says he has a plan to fix it. Then he stops talking to Alex very much at all, and that's when Alex starts to get worried. -- More monster-y than actual horror, it turned out. Oh well.

bright wings - SPN, Meg/Castiel, 1200 words
Castiel has metal wings. Meg has an oil can. -- AKA the steampunk fic. :DDD

The Beginning of a Beautiful Friendship - SPN, Meg + Bela friendship, 700 words
Meg goes to hell in search of loyal subjects. She thinks she may have found one. -- A treat for [livejournal.com profile] gryfndor_godess, with bonus Meg kvetching of Crowley's redecorating scheme. :D

Enough to Make a Girl Feel All Gooey - BtVS, Buffy/Faith, 500 words
Buffy told Faith to stay in Cleveland. Yeah, right. -- A treat for [livejournal.com profile] brutti_ma_buoni, theoretically an AU of the Wishverse. Yes, an AU of the AU. Hush.

wherever you go, there you are - MCU, Natasha + Bucky, 500 words
Natasha thought about the places she’d like to hide, given a choice. She ordered them by practicality, and she started at the bottom. -- My first MCU fic! Behold!

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. )

Title: A Little Less Alone
Fandom: BtVS
Characters: Faith, Buffy
Words / Rating: 3600 words / PG-13 for language
Spoilers: Through "Chosen"
Summary: For reasons entirely opaque to Faith, Buffy shows up one day on the doorstep of Faith's Cleveland rathole, looking broken.

A/N: Hey, look! I still write Buffy fic!

I'm so embarrassed that it's taken me so long to finish this fic. I started it for the 2010-2011 round of [livejournal.com profile] winter_of_faith, which means the first thousand words of it have been hanging around for more than a year. I sat down and finished it today because [livejournal.com profile] dulcedeusex was kind enough to rec it - which made me feel guilty all over again - and also because I was tired of writing things I couldn't post yet.

So here, have a posted thing.

Part One (previously posted at Winter of Faith) )

Part Two (new material) )

'Tis my [livejournal.com profile] winter_of_faith day! I have committed the second (fairly short) chapter of the Buffy&Faith fic I started for the last session. Fortunately, I think I'm unblocked now, and I even have plot. I might even sign up for another day so I can post more of it before the end of the session. (Which, PSA: sign-ups still open until Wed 7!)

Anyway, new chapter of A Little Less Alone here; previous chapter here.

For those who find things difficult to read over at the comm, I also plan to post the whole whole thing to my own journal once I've finished it.

Here's a marvelous thing about Faith: we see her downfall arc and her redemption arc. Redemption arcs are a dime a dozen (and I fall for them every time), but generally the character starts in need of redemption and works from there. Downfall arcs are maybe a little less common, but of course many of them 1) end with the downfall, 2) end with sacrificial death to redeem the downfall, 3) don't take the downfall of a beloved character seriously, or 4) don't take the redemption of fallen beloved character seriously. Faith's arc doesn't suffer from any of those problems. She starts out a sympathetic white hat, goes all the way into villain territory, and comes all the way back to being a seasoned and eventually trusted ally.

And that's just neat.

Lookee lookee! [personal profile] ghostyouknow wrote me agave!Jo/tumbleweed!Sam. No, really. And then she wrote didn't write an mpreg sequel. Yes, with plants, sort of, maybe. It is glorious and it CRACK and it really should not be missed. (This is what I owe her antique potato ricer fic for.)

Apparently this was the weekend for people writing me things. Because [livejournal.com profile] brutti_ma_buoni wrote me The Shady Side of the Hill, which is Wes/Illyria mpreg with just the right mixture of confusion and irony and humor. And then she wrote kidfic to follow!

Meanwhile, [personal profile] verity wrote The Sound of Her, which first of all is Faith wingfic, lovely and atmospheric, and second has Catholic!Faith, which I was begging her to write. And lo! it is also fabulous, and y'all should read.

It's worth nothing that both of these ideas grew out of prompts from the crackficathon, for which fics (or art!) are still happily accepted. There are still some nifty prompts over there. The masterlist of finished works is here.

snick_backup: (Spuffy fluff)
Much Spuffy and one Wes-and-Faith thing. In particular, much Spuffy by [livejournal.com profile] brutti_ma_buoni or from [livejournal.com profile] sb_fag_ends or both, which between them are the sources for something like 75% of all the Buffyverse fic I've read recently.

Also, a note: it occurred to me that it's weird for me as a mod over at [livejournal.com profile] seasonal_spuffy to single out particular fics from the comm, but I urge all you Spuffy-inclined folk to check out the masterlist of our last session, if you haven't already. There's some excellent stuff there, as usual.

Let's put this out there first, so it doesn't get lost in with the Spuffy:
A Witness to See the Mess I've Made, by [livejournal.com profile] ever_neutral
Faith, Wes; mid-Ats S4
This is a lovely fill-in-the-blanks fic of Faith's time with Wes as they try to stop the LA apocalypse. The voices are excellent all the way through, and it adds up to quite a satisfying character study.

Take Five, Everybody, by [personal profile] stultiloquentia
Spike/Buffy; post-NFA; NC-17
So much fic about this ship assumes that they enjoy a transcendent, glorious sex life, for which, if they (and by 'they' we mean 'Buffy') have any brains at all, they shuck friendships, responsibilities, and innermost convictions. Bleah. This, on the other hand, is about a relationship that may finally be coming together into something workable and also about the awkward sex that comes with. Wonderful for the voices and the awkwardness, emotional and physical, that feels real instead of fantastic.

This Wanton World-verse, by Eurydice
Spike/Buffy; AU; NC-17
The single most imaginative thing Eurydice has done, IMO, this is a joyous remixing of Buffyverse elements. Buffy's the Slayer, Ethan Rayne is her keeper and de facto watcher, the Slayer line's gone wonky, and Spike is a vamp hired by the Council to fix it. One dead Slayer, coming up. This gets pretty dark in places, but watching all the different elements come together is worth it.

Green Card 'verse, by [livejournal.com profile] brutti_ma_buoni
Spike/Buffy; AU S4
In which the Initiative is much scarier, Spike's chip is much more useful to our heroes, and Buffy marries him to protect him from the folks who want him back. The premise is pure crack, but B_m_B is doing wonders with it so far. I love the quiet, awkward fledgling friendship that's developing between Spike and Buffy and how it's trying hard to be something more besides both their efforts. Also, it has them being civil to one another, which it turns out is a favorite thing of mine. (I know you are all shocked.)

Everything Would Be What It Wasn't, by [livejournal.com profile] smells_corrupt
Spike/Buffy; early-season AU
The world is falling to pieces, and our heroes need allies, even if the ally is Spike, who's only around to keep an eye on his newly-ensoulled girlfriend. These are the bare sketchings of a truly fascinating premise, and chock-full of our favorite secondary characters as well. I only wish there was more of it.

For a Certain Value of Real, by [livejournal.com profile] brutti_ma_buoni
Spike/Buffy; post-NFA
When Buffy finally finds Spike after the big battle, he can tell she isn't alive. But, it turns out, neither is she dead. This is one of the weirder Spuffy premises I've ever seen and beautifully executed.

It's the Faith round over at [info]genfic_minis. Despite the lure of potential Faith-Giles gen, I'm not participating this time because my fic brain has been uncooperative for, like, three months, which is why I still owe [info]eilowyn a fic from the last round. But you all should, because genfic = ♥.
