Unrelated, useless items juxtaposed, with a card by the collection curator

I discovered today that I have Monday off. This is great news, because I'll need to write my Every Slayer Needs a Watcher story post-haste. I just sent out the halfway-mark reminder. Time for me to panic!

Next ficathon, by popular demand, will be the Giles Hurt/Comfort ficathon. Any pairing or lack thereof, any rating, Giles hurt, Giles comforting, all welcome. I'll probably do a "pick a prompt from the list" approach for that one. More details, um, eventually.

I tagged another two months of back issues in giles_fic_recs. The content tags aren't all that great-- I can really only do them if I've read the story. Reading just to tag is fun, but it slows down the process considerably. The author tags are filling in nicely, however. Most frequent tags: giles/buffy, gen, and post-series.

Signups open soon for spring_with_xan. I am already planning what to do with a day there. I will finish "Partners", I think. Had planned to finish it for my second day last year, but had a bit of an issue with "Dust on his hands from the sky" taking over my brain. But this year: definite return to Xander as Watcher, Giles as head of New Council, Kennedy viewed from a new perspective, and a suspicious rift in Cardiff. And hey! That will resolve a work-in-progress!

Or I could just go for smut and finish "Rough Boys". Or, um, both. We'll see.

Mondays off are always good. And I may try to participate in the next ficathon, provided that the NCIS muse unties the Buffy muse and lets her out of the basement.
Lots, LOL. I haven't been this inspired since season 5 of Buffy, when I was new to the fandom. *sighs* I did those two B/G ficlets yesterday and my brain felt wrung out afterward. I don't know why it's so hard to write anything for Buffy, but I've had trouble there since October or so. :\
You know, Haight has three tags as an author in GFR. Should I fix these things when I come across them, or would you rather I just left them for you? Some of the newer reccers put a space after the colon that leads to double tags. I've corrected those when I've noticed, but I don't want to overstep.
Yes, please fix! I also fix problems with tags as I encounter them, but it's so much easier with more than one person doing it. The whole job will get done faster. Thank you!
Will do. What about authors who have lj names and other pens, like MissParker=Kessica, Khaoschilde=Wickedfox, Velocity Grass=Schulz, etc., etc.? Should we keep as is or make things uniform? Sometimes it's a different name depending on site: Sniggs v Fairfax, and sometimes it's that they've changed user names: Beadtific v Beadattitude.
I have been thinking about those. Unless we have an author preference to guide us, I like to go with the current LJ identity of the writer. That way readers can find more by that author if they like the recced story.
I think I finally figured out how to handle the fixes for my Watcher Needs a Slayer fic, hallelujah.

Also, have you had a chance to look at the fixes I did for the hetfic_minis story?

With those two taken care of I can concentrate on my last Sweet Charity fic.

You're going to run another ficathon? Damn, I wish I knew how to say no to these things.
"a suspicious rift in Cardiff"? Am I sensing a Torchwood crossover here? :)
Maybe. I like the core Doctor Who itself much better... but a supernatural-ish rift in Cardiff is Who canon! Nine and Rose had a little encounter with it back in Dickens' time, didn't they?
