Gratuitous icon post, with bonus content

Today's new icon is a quick crop from Jo Chen's cover for issue #24 of the Buffy season 8 comics. This issue is a one-shot story following Giles & Faith after "No Future For You". No idea what happens in it. I have long since given up my subscription to the comic, but I pre-ordered this one. Just for that cover. Oh my. And the good news is, Jeanty isn't ruining it with his pencils this time! And thus I found the right icon for today's story.

I am so dedicated to research for these stories that I also bought a bottle of Germain-Robin alambic brandy. The spelling of the word freaks me out, but it's apparently right. Amazing stuff. So incredibly smooth. I might give up whisk(e)y for it. Except it would ruin me. Except hey, not: since I can only drink about one eyedropper-full at a time, one bottle is going to last me years.

Near-future projects, in order of likely completion:

"Broken Vessel" - Giles & his dad, post-Eyghon, Watcher's Child verse; gen
"Liegeman part 4: Conversation" - Giles and Buffy talk on the phone; G/B
"The One About Giles's Hands" - Attic-verse, B/G smarm in the context of an existing G/X relationship
"The One about the Barrow" - a Wiltshire Neolithic tomb and a barrow wight; G/X
"The Signet Ring" - working title of the time-travel Highgate Cemetery story aka the Big Bang story; B/G sort of
"Montana" - working title of the post-Chosen all-gone-wrong story; B/G/X
"Back By Teatime" - Doctor Who crossover with the 2nd Doctor, Giles and Ethan as schoolboys
"The Schoolboy Kink One" - morally reprehensible G/X

This is really a list of story files I have open at the moment and might find myself tinkering with. Order is based on how close they look to done-ness. The next Blackmail segment might beat "Broken Vessel", though, because it'll demand less revision. I think I'm going to aim the barrow story for a Spring with Xan date TBD.

PS: Now I'm off to leave comments on all the drunk!Giles stories posted today. You might enjoy them too! Drunken Giles masterlist over thisaway.

    Today! Today today today. Missing scene writing. Even if they're sketchy things that barely establish the physicality of place and don't get the mood…
