snick_backup: (Faith)
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

Relationships: Rupert Giles/Faith Lehane

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?”

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! )

Because it's a little late for Christmas, isn't it? This is for [livejournal.com profile] rebcake - happy all the holidays, Reb! This took so long because I had a rather longer piece that just would not be molded into fic shape. But here, finally, are Adelle and Giles at an airport. (Uh, let's just assume it's set during the holidays, shall we?)

I meant it as a drabble; it is not. As if Darla doesn't always have her own ideas about things.

I know, I know, I just did one of these. Y'all don't mind, do you? Anyway, this one's mostly full of short pieces, as I haven't spent much time trawling lately.

Songs of Experience, by [livejournal.com profile] noelia_g
Post-everything: Giles, Illyria, libraries, grief. I've having trouble coming up with a summary that does this justice, so: go read.

Moving On, by [livejournal.com profile] jedibuttercup
Post-NFA. Another find on the hunt for Illyria fic. Every year, on the anniversary of Wesley's death, Illyria returns to the hall of Vail. Grief and moving on, and delicious little hints of Illyria learning to cope in our dimension. Lovely.

Hot Rocks, by [livejournal.com profile] ljs
In an AU S7, Giles and Spike are off looking for a stone to help defeat the First. Lori's beloved Giles/Anya is here peeking in around the corners, but primarily this is about Giles and Spike hunting a magic rock and coming marginally closer to an understanding. Beautifully characterized, both the banter and the almost-poignant moments.

That White Rush, by [livejournal.com profile] girlpire
One morning, Angel begins to grow wings. Fred thinks this is pretty cool. Honestly, Angel/Fred? Soooo not my pairing. But I've been looking for wingfic for a long darned time, just to see the appeal, and this is snappily written and quite amusing.

Feast and Famine, by [livejournal.com profile] mabus101
Buffy character study, via food. A rather heartbreaking fanwank of SMG's weight loss over the course of the show. Now I want to take Buffy home and let her eat as much as she wants.

Sea Change, by [livejournal.com profile] mabus101
This may be the coolest bit of Dawn-is-the-key fic I've seen in a long time, partly because it's so hopeful, a break in the clouds of oppressive Buffyverse pessimism. So short, and yet so good.

Better Late than Never, by [livejournal.com profile] cindergal
Yay, this aptly-titled WIP is finally done! This is mid-S5 Spuffy, which nearly always makes me happy, and it's sweet and hopeful and very quietly romantic. Plus: time travel! And Ripper! What more need I say?

Giles had been looking forward to this since the morning of that first day at Sunnydale High School, when a smirking senior interrupted Giles’ survey of the grimoires to ask for *Penthouse*. )

Recs #9

This ended up being the late-season Spike/Buffy/Spuffy recs list. It’s all S6 or later, all involving either Spike or Buffy or both and accompanied variously by Dawn, Tara, Oz, Illyria, Faith, and Nikki Wood.

Organized by season, because I felt like it.

S6

Old Year's Eve, by [livejournal.com profile] st_salieri
Dawn makes a discovery about Spike and Buffy and another discovery about herself. This is Dawn-growing-up fic, beautifully written and with the sense of weight and melancholy growing up brings.

untitled Valentine’s Day vignette thingy by [livejournal.com profile] theohara
Tara stumbles across Spike in the greeting card aisle, just before Valentine’s Day. Cue quiet companionship and sharing of respective relationship woes. One of those pieces I reread when I want to cry.

S7

Take the Heat, by Estepheia
Sometime before S7, Oz spots Spike in a crowd. What comes next is one of those moments of unexpected grace that never fail to move me. Plus, yanno: Oz!

Nothing Special, by [livejournal.com profile] deird1
Brief, quiet Buffy-and-Dawn sisterly fluff snuck in during the S7 chaos. I think I love this partly just because I love their sister relationship so much, and there isn’t near enough fic about it.

Microwave Meals (Quick, Easy, and Sometimes Satisfying, by [livejournal.com profile] quinara
And more S7 fluff, this time of the Spuffy variety. If I ever come around to liking S7 Spuffy, it’ll be because of folks on the flist like Quin and fics like this. Quiet, gentle, funny, hopeful.

Wayward, by Devil Piglet
Nikki Wood shows up at the house on Revello; Spike is tasked with taking care of her. Long and mildly plotty and heavily angsty. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen this fic around before and was positive it wouldn’t work, but lo! it does, at least for me.

Post-Series

Winds Blowing Chill, by [livejournal.com profile] brutti_ma_buoni
Rulesverse Buffy starts thinking about babies, but in the Rulesverse there are no quick fixes for the vampire reproduction problem, which leads to one of the more emotionally complex pieces of Spuffy babyfic I’ve ever read. Also: excellent Buffy voice.

Angels in the Architecture, by [livejournal.com profile] only_passenger
This is the closest I’ve ever seen to the long, character-study style genfic of Buffy&Faith post-Chosen that I keep wanting. They have such a fascinating dynamic and so many issues, and this explores a few of them.

The Last Fingers of Leaf, by [livejournal.com profile] quinara
Buffy and Illyria. A dragon. Pizza. Combined, they’re an unexpected pleasure as the two find commonalities that I’d never have thought of. Poignant and elegantly written.

Life in the Present Tense, by [livejournal.com profile] penny_lane_42
A long, delicious series of vignettes of Buffy, Spike, and Dawn living in Rome. Lirazel describes this as self-indulgent Spuffy fluff, but yanno, sometimes that’s just what a person wants. Rich and gorgeous and hopeful.

I've finally found both an in and the first few paragraphs for my Giles fic. (Which is, yes, late. Darn it.) At least part of the fic seems to involve Ripper, which pleases me. A huge and hearty thanks to everyone who's been helping with my musical inspiration.

Meanwhile, [livejournal.com profile] seductivembrace wrote me comics-era Faith&Giles! Yay! It's Quid Pro Quo, and it's a lovely, quiet fill-in-the-blank early in the No Future For You arc.

I haven't had a chance to read any of the others yet, but I've no doubt there's good stuff there.
