What a brilliant meme! And you've written Joyce/Olaf??? Where? When? I never knew it before, but that is something I *have*to read. And BuffyBot/Immortal... fantastic. I really want someone to write that now! *pines*

Oh, and I got my husband to read your Submarine drabble the other day, and he liked it! I might get him to come round on the fanfic front, one drabble at a time! :)

You mean you haven't read my Jolaf story Merry Sport?

I'd like keswindhover to do BuffyBot/Immortal. I've always pictured the Immortal as rather self-important, a believer in his own publicity, and Kes' relentlessly cheerful and clueless Botty would be a perfect way of deflating him.

Good luck with the husband converting.

Heh. My husband's only just gotten over the urge to run screaming in the other direction when I mention slash fiction to him.

Me too, to some extent - although I've written it! I'll write almost anything if I can make it funny.

I can tolerate m/m slash from a very few great writers, although I skip over the actual slashy bits, but there is only one m/m slash story that I actively like - "Cornpone and the Bloodsuckers", by alwayslbj and Mefiant, a Riley/Xander/Harmony story of such sublime silliness that it had me almost weeping with laughter at some points.

Sometime in the next ten days or so, I'll be posting about a dozen Spike/Cordelia stories. I have a feeling you'll be reading and enjoying the stories as much as I.

Great! It's a very rare pairing; it's not even listed as an option at "All About Spike". And yet surely a pairing of the King and Queen of Snark has a lot to offer. There was definite sparkage in "In The Dark"; yet hardly anyone has taken it up.

Off the top of my head the only Spike/Cordy story I can come up with is waywardchilde's "To Be Loved" - and there's only one chapter of that so far.

One of the sites I send my CSI stories to wants me to write a Spike story. Yesterday I suggested one in which CSI finally arrest him for the murder of Nikki Wood and everyone else he's killed over the last few decades.

For some reason they've gone very quiet...

These are my favourite Spike/Cordelia stories. I don't know if all these links are still active.

'Fumbling on', by Larilyn.
'Least obeisance', by WesleysGirl.
'Lovely, dark and deep', by hold_that_thought.
'Revert to type', and 'Time bomb', by Rabbit. (Heed the warnings for the second one.)
'The girl who isn't there', by Lesley.

Well, I fell from grace with the whole hearted dive into slash long, long ago, but I'm entirely with you on the Giles/Dawn thing. Some things are just beyond evil.

And Mr. Space, otherwise known as my SU, has been sucked into reading fanfic with "The Attack of the 50 Foot Willow". This is at least partially amusing because everyone else in the house writes the stuff- Sam ST/SW, Anna HP, and me that great lumbering Aus/Dr on a ship...

Julia, if the dogs start writing Milo and Otis fic I'm going to worry

That's two fanfic-reading virginities that I've taken!

In a strictly metaphorical way, of course.

I'd never thought of a Spike/Arpil fic before, but now I want to read it! I agree with the Giles/Dawn thing, that's just wrong. Im' working on the next chapter for To Be Loved right now and I'm almost done.

April (holding Spike above her head): That would be wrong! You are not my boyfriend. (lowers Spike slightly) Although, I have been searching for Warrend for a very long time and I cannot find him. That does sound interesting and a girl has to have a boyfriend. (puts Spike all the way down)

Spike: Bleedin' hell, you're a strong bint! Are you that muscular internally as well?

April: My internal systems are based on a twin processor motherboard.

Spike: Oh, I get it. (turns his head and leers at Buffy, then turns back to April) Fascinating! Tell us more, love. Preferably over a drink and in the vicinity of a bed. Then maybe I can put a bit more RAM inside you.

(to be continued ...)
