Hi! I'm a crappy special effect!

Elderly Pets: Dimmer Dog is very poorly these days. He is a couple of years younger than Smart Dog, but she's remaining alert and active (if arthritic) and he's declining. He's blind now, for one thing, and probably deaf as well. But most seriously, his kidneys are failing. Mr Pedia has learned how to administer fluids to him with a needle. Last night he had a grand mal seizure. The corner of the fridge devoted to his medications is growing larger.

Poor guy. He hates being given pills and fights it madly. He is a master of spitting out pills ten minutes after you thought he swallowed them. Wonderfully suicidal doggie.

Who said there isn't any Giles line-art? I did. But I was wrong. Because there is! Uther, Giles, and ASH's Repo character as chibis!

Teevee: Now we're about to watch the Warehouse 13 two-part season finale.

Random discussion topic.

Okay, I'll bite. What's a coffeeshop AU? Is this like a highschool AU only everybody's a hipster instead?

ETA: Oh wow, there are coffeeshop AUs for everything. Though not for BtVS. Obviously it needs one. Giles owns it, of course, and Anya is one of his baristas. Tara & Willow are college students who hang out there often to study. Where I go from there depends on which ship I'm pursuing. I could see Ethan here in various roles. Xander repairs the La Marzocco machine, and catches the eye of the owner... or it's the young blonde college student who breaks the arm of the would-be robber who attracts his attention. Or...

It is, I suppose, an exercise in character. Drain away the extraordinary circumstances that surrounds our genre heroes normally, then examine the essence of who they are that remains.

No, I don't read much, if anything, beyond BtVS. Why do you ask?
