Lookee lookee! Seraph won Best Gen and - get this - Best Plot over at the Sunnydale Fanfiction Memorial Awards. (Considering my ongoing mystification by the mysterious process of Plot, this latter award kind of cracks me up.

Have I ever mentioned my theory of plot? At least, my plot? It is this: plot is like a bonsai tree. It is an organic process that you can adjust somewhat by watering or failing to water, by adjusting soil or adjusting light, but which you ought never to presume that you control. Also, it is very slow.)

Anyway, Read more... )

Also, congrats to all the other winners, including flist folk [livejournal.com profile] dampersnspoons, [livejournal.com profile] brutti_ma_buoni, [livejournal.com profile] elisi, [livejournal.com profile] nwhepcat, [livejournal.com profile] deird1, [livejournal.com profile] rebcake, [livejournal.com profile] penny_lane_42, and [livejournal.com profile] shapinglight.

After a long week of Life Makes Me Tired, I am now all squeeful. Because first of all, [livejournal.com profile] kate1010 made me this fabulous awesome movie poster of fabulousness for Seraph:

See the fabulousness! )

And then I've just realized that next week's [livejournal.com profile] still_grrr prompt is the perfect excuse to write this crossover thingy I've been wanting to write for eight months, which I shall not tell you about, because it is a surprise.

And I finally know what I'm writing for my [livejournal.com profile] genfic_minis assignment (even though due to previously mentioned Life it'll most likely be delayed a few days).

Yay!!!

And now I'm going to bed, which in some ways is cause for more celebration than all of the above combined...

It looks like it's going to take more than one post to say all I want to say about Seraph. So, here's the first part of the commentary:

'You're evil, just like everyone says, and you're still my best friend.' )
snickfic: (Spike-Dawn no good)
I've been planning on a big long commentary on the whys and hows of writing Seraph, and I'm not just sure when I'll have time to write it. But when/if I do, what would you like me to talk about?

Title: Seraph
Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Characters: Spike, Dawn, ensemble (genfic, no pairing except canon)

Spoilers: Through the end of S4, plus a few spoilers-by-implication through early S5

Story begins here. All parts may be found here.

A/N: Here it is at last, folks: the final chapter.

I didn't know what I was getting into when I posted that first chapter back in January; I had no notion what a project this fic would turn out to be or how long it'd take me to finish it. I'm not certain I ever would have if it weren't for all the encouraging comments. So, to everyone who's dropped in even once to leave some nice words: thank you, thank you!

Thanks especially to the three lovely ladies that've read my broken drafts and helped me figure out how to fix them: [livejournal.com profile] hello_spikey, [livejournal.com profile] phoenixofborg, and [livejournal.com profile] penny_lane_42. This fic would be much less shiny without you.

The thrill of that explosion of dust had faded. )

Beautified by my fabulous betas, [livejournal.com profile] hello_spikey, [livejournal.com profile] phoenixofborg, and [livejournal.com profile] penny_lane_42. Thank you, ladies!

A/N: Almost done! I expect to post the last two chapters within the next couple of weeks. Hooray! *\o/*

Now it was just a matter of time and gestation. )

This chapter beautified by my fabulous betas, [livejournal.com profile] hello_spikey, [livejournal.com profile] phoenixofborg, and [livejournal.com profile] penny_lane_42. Thank you, ladies!

A/N: Three more chapters to go! I'm maybe a third of the way through drafting the last chapter, and when that's done all three will go to the betas. Hooray!

Also, this would be the poemfic chapter of the mpreg. 'Cuz, you know, no crackfic would be complete without a poemfic chapter...

There were only so many housebound nights a vamp could take. )

This chapter beautified by my fabulous betas, [livejournal.com profile] hello_spikey, [livejournal.com profile] phoenixofborg, and [livejournal.com profile] penny_lane_42. Thank you, ladies!

It seemed everyone but Spike had big plans for the evening. )

This chapter beautified by my fabulous betas, [livejournal.com profile] hello_spikey, [livejournal.com profile] phoenixofborg, and [livejournal.com profile] penny_lane_42.

A/N: When I started posting this fic I had such ambitions of updating on a nice, regular, predictable schedule. Hah. The move to a foreign country, the crazy new job, and the fatal computer crash all in the same month pretty much killed that idea dead. But here, much later, is the next chapter of Seraph.

When he woke a half-hour after dark the house was quiet, but not deserted. )

The Rogue Poet Round 10 "Best of the Best" winners are up, in which Seraph won Reader's Choice for best gen. Thank you, thank you, you guys!

There's a lovely accompanying graphic here.

Also, big congrats to flisters [livejournal.com profile] eowyn_315, [livejournal.com profile] penny_lane_42, [livejournal.com profile] cindergal, and [livejournal.com profile] clawofcat.

Story begins here. All parts may be found here.

Muchas gracias to beta extraordinaire [livejournal.com profile] hello_spikey. Also, a fervent "Feel better!" to [livejournal.com profile] phoenixofborg.

A/N: So, this would be the completely Spike-free chapter of the Spikefic. Also, never mind about that 24 chapter estimate from last time - it's looking more like 27 at the moment.

'He’s evil!' Buffy said. )

Yay nom!

Seraph has been nommed for Best Gen over at the Fang Fetish Awards. Squee!

A bunch of people from the flist are nommed for things, too. Special congrats to [livejournal.com profile] angearia, who's nominated in the drabble category for the Lorne/Darla drabble she wrote for me.

*squee*

Eeeeeeee! Seraph has won an award! Specifically, it was awarded Best Gen over at the Rogue Poet Awards against some really tough competition (including [livejournal.com profile] deird1's fabulous fic Small Spaces, which I've recced here before and which won Runner Up).



Yay pretty! And score one for the mpreg.

Big congrats to the other winners, half of whom are on my flist; clearly I have excellent taste. Or really smart friends. Or something. *g* So, congrats to [livejournal.com profile] rebcake, [livejournal.com profile] gabrielleabelle, [livejournal.com profile] penny_lane_42, [livejournal.com profile] hello_spikey, [livejournal.com profile] angearia, [livejournal.com profile] clawofcat, [livejournal.com profile] enigmatic_blues, [livejournal.com profile] moscow_watcher, and [livejournal.com profile] deird1. Hurrah.

Also, I'm disproportionately pleased that a fic I nommed won its category - I'm almost more excited about that than I am about Seraph. Makes me feel all warm and gooey inside. :)
snickfic: (Spike bathtub)
In which I complain for a while about writing fic. Spoilers for all of Seraph up to this point.

It's all hard and stuff. )
snickfic: (Spike hostile 17)
Apologies for the sudden and unannounced hiatus. These next few chapters have been stubborn, recalcitrant chapters. But the next one is with the betas now, so within a week or so we should have new Seraph. *crosses fingers*

Meanwhile, [livejournal.com profile] moscow_watcher, she of the Spuffy fics and the new Xander/Faith WIP and the fabulous comprehensive quarterly recs lists, surprised me with Seraph fanart! Ohmygoodness! I'm all thumbs with graphics, and I am tickled to no end to have this oh so sweet "book cover" for Seraph:

See the adorable graphic! )
snickfic: (Spike hate you)
Story begins here. All parts may be found here.

As usual, muchas gracias to my lovely betas, [livejournal.com profile] hello_spikey and [livejournal.com profile] phoenixofborg.

A/N: We have a target estimate now - yay! It's looking like it should end up around 23 chapters, ~55k words. So now you know. *g*

Three days after the doctor’s visit, Spike opened his crypt door right around sunset to Willow and Tara, all grins, with Xander hanging moodily behind. )
snickfic: (Spike)
Story begins here. All parts may be found here.

A/N: I'm at the point in this fic where I want to know exactly how I'm pacing the ending before I post any more. Thus, the fic is going into a bit of a hiatus, hopefully no more than 2-3 weeks, while I finish writing the rough draft.

Also, I've been fiddling along without a beta until now, but at this point one or two more pairs of eyes to check for characterization and overall plot arc would really be a help, I think. If you think you might want to help out a newbie fic writer thusly, please, drop a note in comments or PM me. Both I and my readers would be ever so grateful. :) And I'd be happy to do some beta-ing for you in return, if that interests you. Betas found! Thank you!!


There was nothing left to read that offered even a quiet chuckle and no one to talk to except Willow--who must be getting close, he thought, because every time she spoke it was in a bright-eyed babble of jargon that three demon languages and a half-dozen human ones hadn’t prepared him for. )

Do you suppose it was purely happenstance that out of the 900 possible 3-digit combinations (assuming the first digit is non-zero, and without excluding any of the obvious 3-digit numbers like 666 or 911) for the Initiative's Xtra Speshul Lab, the writers picked 314, the first three digits of pi? Or is the Snick being overly geeky today?

ETA: This post now with surprise Seraph fanart in the comments!
snickfic: (Spike)
Some dialogue in this chapter borrowed from "Restless."

Story begins here. All parts may be found here.

A/N: I was going to post this shortie chapter with the last update, and then I dithered and thought there was a part that I wanted to change, and after fiddling and further dithering I'm posting it anyway. :p I have to say, getting to play in "Restless" totally makes up for having to deal with Adam. Yay.

He knew this was a dream, because in dreams he might as well have been human: the colors were washed out, the sounds tinny and muffled. )

Some dialogue in this chapter borrowed from "Primeval."

Title: Seraph
Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Characters: Spike, Dawn, ensemble (genfic, no pairing except canon)
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: Through the end of S4, plus a few spoilers-by-implication through early S5
Warnings: See author's note below

Disclaimer: None of these characters are belong to me. They are belong to Whedon, Greenwalt, ME, and co.

A/N: Well, kids, here 'tis, the first chapter of the crack!fic I've been talking about all this time. Woe and alas, for I have written mpreg.

Actually, wait, no. I worked hard on this and I’m proud of it. I’ll readily grant that the vast majority of mpreg--in any fandom--is acid to the eyeballs, but I don’t think that that means the premise is inherently flawed. I realize it’s an insurmountable squick for some people, to whom I say, sorry, this is not the fic for you. To everyone else: give the story a chance, yeah? Remember how I love Spike and Dawn and Spike&Dawn and genfic and snark and prose that flows and characterization that I can believe? All here, at least in the attempt.

Incidentally, the title is provisional and subject to change, if I happen to come up with something I like better.

Also: I'm flying without a beta on this, but if you should happen to be so enamored with what you see here that you'd like to volunteer, I'll not say you nay. *g* I'll happily trade beta-ing for anything that isn't smut or slash.

ETA: And for the WIP-shy, I have the majority of this written, including the final scene. It's just some stuff in the middle that still needs work.

It started with the heat )
