This is our day of Glory
I've finished my entry for enigmaticblues Holiday Ficathon and sent it in. It is now available there, but I'm not putting it up on my own site yet, I'll give her a few days of exclusivity. It's called "And Glory Shone Around", and it's an AU in which Glory proposes a Christmas truce. To say that 'whackiness ensues' would be putting it mildly.

Pimp! A drabble from ffutures that people who like my lunatic little snippets will probably love too.

Mistaken Identity II

My Christmas was nice, but quiet; nothing that would really interest anyone else, and details are on curiouswombat's LJ anyway, so I won't bore you. Hope you all had a pleasant time.

I'm off to work now.

That was lots of fun! I actually shed a tear when Glory fixed Joyce's brain. I love happy endings. I'm sappy that way. Thanks a bunch. :-)

Thank you! It had to have a happy ending, that was part of the Ficathon specifications, so I thought I might as well go all the way.

I like it when you toy with canon. (Still reading Pandora's Boxer -- I'm making it last, like a box of candy.)

I like to toy with canon; in fact I like to load canon with chain shot and fire at the rigging, and then switch to roundshot and fire canon at the waterline.

I really must make a start on Book 2 of Pandora's Boxer, but I've got to do the stories for watchersdiaries soon.

Did you change your mind about the collaborating on the Watcher's Diary story you previously mentioned?

I haven't changed my mind, I just haven't had a chance yet to put my idea into a coherent form in which I can send it to you for your input. I've got a week off work coming up soon and that's one of the things I plan to do then.

Goody! Since I'm currently stalled on my own thing...

Gosh, I absolutely loved this, it's my favorite Glory story evah.

Thank you. It was a lot of fun to write, although it was also a lot of hard work. I'm glad the effort was worth while.

Lovely story - I've been waiting for someone to write a fanfic that exploits the Ben vulnerability. In fact there's a drabble in the back of my mind...

Thanks, glad you liked it. I've seen several stories in which Ben gets killed by genuine coincidence, and one in which Spike recruits the Knights of Byzantium to try to kill Ben, so it's not a unique basic idea; although I think my own spin on it is at the least unusual.

Faboo story, Speaker! Made my heart all kinds of happy. Hope your holiday was lovely.

Thanks, glad it made your heart happy. I'll try to write future stories to make your lungs, pancreas, gall bladder, and spleen happy too.

I've decided because tis the season to give you a long detailed review of this story.

The thing I love about your stories is the fact that you use such a dry sense of humour and yet some how it's this humour that gives the most unexpectant characters real hummanity and vunrebility.
In this story I almost came to like Glory, I mean sure she was an evil hell god but having her hit on Wesley and then grow distraught when Ben ruined the relationship really showed her well, human side.
I mean I actually felt sad when Harmony killed Ben, not because of Ben of course but because Glory died.
I also liked this story because you didn't perfect spike which sometimes you draw close to doing.
I mean in this story his still spike, souless, dirt poor, filled with insecurities and yet lovable.
The scene where Buffy burst on him making christmas cards was so touching and yet amusing at the same time.
I think it's a close tie in between yours and Theohara's christmas story, they were both so sweet and funny in different ways.
OH an I love your refference to WW1 with the christmas soccer match!!
I mean the whole thing was so good because like WW1 when they had a truce they realised they were not so different or whatever, eh.

Thanks for the review. Glad you liked it. I felt sad for Glory too - but she does eat people's brains!

Yes, I see that. Of course in the two where that is most applicable there are external forces at work. Looking back at Book One of "Pandora's Boxer" now I wonder if I've made a mistake in not making it more obvious earlier that the Shaman has done more to Spike than just sending him back in time, and in not dropping hints earlier than Chapter 22 that he sent him back 11,500 years not 3.

I think Murk!” Glory called. “Let there be mistletoe. Lots of mistletoe.”
“There shall be enough to crush an entire Eisteddfod of Druids, oh supreme majesty,” Murk assured her. “I shall procure it at once.”
is my favourite line of the year.
