Reminding all the good writers out there that there is an interesting community looking for more sign-ups; watchersdiaries. It's for Original Character stories, vampires and slayers, rather like the Tales of the Slayer books. One big plus is that the submissions aren't needed until February 2005, so NaNoWriMo pressure and the inevitable fatigue afterwards shouldn't be too big a problem. Head over there and take a look.
This has been a wonderful weekend so far for updates to great WIPs; fantastic chapters from megan_peta, elisi, janedavitt, thomaxena, calove, rahirah, more than one from enigmaticblues, and desdemonaspace's lovely Spara time travel fic "The Long And Winding Road" at spiketara. All well worth reading.
News on my own writing front; I've made a start on "Come As You Are", the sequel to Smells Like Teen Spirit, and it isn't coming out at all as I'd planned. It was supposed to be post NFA Spike/Janice, and it is obstinately turning into something else (still post NFA, of course). I'm not going to fight it, as a lot of people seemed to be squicked by the Spike/Janice idea even though she'd be over 18 at the time, so it will be a totally different pairing.
And I've done a sequel to the naughty little drabble Something Blue Movie; here it is. 100 words.
Willow limped over to Buffy and Spike. “Eat a cookie, ease my pain?”
“Serves you right,” Buffy moaned. “Why couldn’t you have been a bit quicker?”
“I got caught up with a horny demon,” Willow mumbled.
“Don’t I get a cookie?” Spike complained. “Oh well, I’ve got that great Buffy taste to dwell on.”
“You’re a pig, Spike,” Buffy snapped.
“Don’t kid yourself, you enjoyed it,” Spike smirked. “And, got to say, the only thing better than eating a Slayer is eating out a Slayer. Could get used to that.”
Buffy went crimson and stuffed a cookie into his mouth.
