In which the intrepid fan attempts to get more of what she wants.

January is, for various reasons, a very blue month for me, and darn it! This sort of blue mood needs OTeaP with milk and sugar. I need some new Buffy/Giles of the kind that I haven't read four million times already. I know that I am not alone here. I have heard plaintive wails from some of you.

Does there need to be a ficathon? A challenge? A fic exchange? Let's see what the interest level is.

Poll #1114725 Every Slayer Needs a Watcher

I'd write for a Buffy/Giles ficathon.

No.
8(28.6%)
Yes.
20(71.4%)

I'd eagerly await the opportunity to read the results.

No.
1(3.3%)
Yes.
5(16.7%)
Look, I'd read anything new and Gilesy.
3(10.0%)
My heart belongs to Buffy.
1(3.3%)
I wanted to check options 2, 3, and 4, but your fascist radio buttons prevented me.
17(56.7%)
I'm meh on this one, but like one of your other ficathon ideas.
3(10.0%)

Ficathon formats I like are:

Traditional fic exchange, with assignments.
2(7.7%)
A fixed set of prompts I can select from.
5(19.2%)
A single challenge that all stories must respond to.
3(11.5%)
"Buffy/Giles" is enough of a prompt.
1(3.8%)
Another idea that I will tell you about in a comment.
0(0.0%)

The pairing is properly written as:

Giles/Buffy
3(10.3%)
Buffy/Giles
10(34.5%)
BeeGee
0(0.0%)
A disgusting portmanteau name, like "Biles" or "Guffy".
0(0.0%)
That last option wasn't biased at all, now, was it. Sheesh.
3(10.3%)


If there's enough interest, I'll fire up the ficathon machinery when I return from vacation. Heck, if there's a lot of interest, I'll start the machinery moving remotely. Will have my Macbook with me in sunny, warm England.

ETA: I'm doing it! Signups are now open!
