Oh noes! seven more trivial things

misswitch re-tagged me, so I will cheerfully do the seven-random-things meme again, but decline to tag anybody on the second go-round. Collapse )
Thusia-verse story sent to Glim for a beta-read sanity-check. The weekend plan is to alternate between Reconnection 3 & "Untitled G/E Broken Vessel Story which probably is going to be titled 'Broken Vessel' so why do I bother".

NB: I'm not docking theblackmare for her prompt on yesterday's PIF post, 'cause it ain't fair to prompt me to write what I shall surely write anyway. So there is one request going begging still.

Random link: Asking the Wrong Questions essays upon Dr Who: "Everybody dies!" Interesting. Rather savage about the abilities of the core Who writing staff.

In closing I point you to wesleysgirl's Jossverse fic recs meme list, because I love writing recommendations and reading them. It's interesting as well to see that some people's view of Buffy fandom is quite different from mine. E.g., my tolerance for stories without Giles is quite limited, but lots of people never give him a thought. Am writing up my list of five stories with Giles in, but am having troubles reducing the list.

Five Giles stories to read

wesleysgirl has kicked off a Jossverse fic rec meme.

Please post in your own journal recommending 5 (or more) of your favorite Jossverse fics. Stories should be the ones that best remind you of what you loved about the shows -- this can be the dialogue, the characters, the plots, the angst, the humor, or whatever you find yourself missing the most. (It's okay to include self-recs on your list! You can also choose to do only BtVS or Ats stories instead of both. Do what you feel like.) Comment to this post with a link to your post, and I'll compile a master list of the recs so that we can all feel the love. Feel free to pimp this far and wide!

There are few things I love doing as much as cheerleading for stories that make me happy, so I present my five all-time favorite Giles stories Collapse )
