Giles/Buffy library

Rah rah, keep plugging, rah rah.

Stories I have written at least a few words for in the last month, a mostly-complete list:

  • Giles/Buffy, knighting ceremony, het_idcrack prompt
  • Giles/Buffy, Iceland, demons, volcanos, swords, ice
  • Giles/Buffy, "Liegeman" final chapter, Sun Tzu and bruises
  • Giles/Buffy, Council-forced marriage, post-Helpless, can't decide if it's angst or romcom, for NutterBudgie
  • Buffy/Giles/Xander, post-Chosen cabin in Wyoming, angst and big skies
  • Giles/Ethan/Buffy, post-Gift swords-n-sorcery AU

It is indeed the year of Buffy/Giles, with epic tendencies. And the occasional third party.

Next problem to solve: finishing stories instead of just tinkering with them endlessly. I'm not sure how to do this just now. A reward system? One jelly bean per finished fic?

  • Current Music: Alvik : Jeniferever : Alvik - Single
Maybe pick one with a setting that can be tangentially found in this area and go spend a day there with your laptop?
Ok, but if you're going there- you've got to take me because I suggested it!!! ;D ;D
When I need to write, usually what I do is go to the library with my laptop. There are very comfy recliners there in an area that doesn't get wireless internet, so it's comfortable but there are no distractions. Then I tell myself I can't leave until I get done however much writing needs to be done. Quite effective.

All sound lovely; I'm quite a fan of epic Buffy/Giles. Though I must admit I have a soft spot for forced-marriage fics, particularly ones that combine angst and rom-com aspects. My favorite is Tyger, Tyger by Bloodcult of Freud. (Warning. It's long, and a guilty pleasure. Sucks you in.)
I have to second the recommendation for Tyger-Tyger, though in my case it's less for the "forced marriage" and more for the incredible relationship dynamics of the couple. It's one of the most realistic renditions of a marriage I've come across in fiction. :)
Romcom it is, then. And therefore Giles's pov. (Don't ask why this follows. It just does.)

The problem is that I don't like jelly beans or gummy bears enough to use them as motivators. They're nice, but not mega-nice.
