It didn't really rise to the level of "spam"

That wasn't much of a ficspam, I know, but hey! The attempt did help me finish two things I've had in progress for a while. And I have at least two more short things started, not Giles/Ethan. I'll see what I can do this week with a Giles/Jenny thing I started yesterday, and also a Giles/Buffy thing. The genfic ideas are not so plentiful at the moment, alas.

This approach is incredibly effective with getting me to stop over-editing and just let the words flow out. It's not the way to write more complex, polished pieces, the sort of things that depend on a deep editing process, but if I'm stuck entirely it's a huge help.

My opinion on the LJ user rep elections in progress: The position is for appearances only. If the LJ owners don't listen to the professionals on their advisory board, they are unlikely to listen to a customer on the same board. But the election sure is occupying a lot of time, attention, and energy. My recommendation is to vote for a fandom candidate, because YNK, and then stop investing in it.

Random link for today: Flight of the Conchords, "The Humans are Dead", performed live. Killed me too. (Contains a bad word sung aloud, so use headphones if necessary.)

Oh noes! ask me anything about the stories meme

This one seems like it'd be fun!

Ask me a question about one of my fanfictions. It can be absolutely anything in any fic and I will tell you the honest-to-god answer. Don’t hold back. Ask about major upcoming plot points if you want to. Whatever you ask, I have to answer truthfully.

I will warn you in advance if my answer contains major spoilers and give you a chance to back out. If you then decide that you still want to hear my answer, I'll white it out and you can highlight. Think carefully before asking a question. You might not want to have it spoiled as badly as you think you do.


Note that until I actually post a story, everything is open to change. I often discover when I've written something that my plan for it was plain wrong.
