This is my fic written for the Buffy/Angel IWRY marathon. It is also posted here by the lovely [livejournal.com profile] chrisleeoctaves.

Title: Persistence of Memory
Rating: R
Length: about 6,000
Summary: Angel thinks turning back the day he turned human (in the episode “IWill Remember You”) is one of the best things he ever did. These are the other things.

A/N: I don't think this is the best. But I think because I didn't agonize over it, I'm alright with that. Anyway, I'm interested in what people think, and con crit is always welcome. Even more welcome than usual.

I have no business doing this as my participation in the past three ficathon type things I was in has been so harried and kinda craptastic, and I haven't even read the IWRY Marathon entries yet! But I figure it's alright as I'm just casing your interest...Actually sign ups won't take place until February or so (only if there is enough interest). Enough excuses! Here is my idea for the ficathon:

This ficathon wouldn't be for everyone. It would be for people who identify as primarily Buffy/Angel fans or Buffy/Spike fans. NB: I don't mean for people who only identify that way; for instance, I "identify" as a B/Aer, but I do love me my Angel/Spike and Buffy/Faith and Buffy/Connor and Angel/Wesley and so on, and I have read an enjoyed a number of Buffy/Spike fics. But if you ask me what my favorite 'ship is in the 'verse, I'd definitely say B/A. So ends the explanation of who this ficathon would be for, and the rest of you can stop reading.

The idea behind the ficathon is that all the people who identify as B/Aers would try to write a quality B/S fic, and all the people who identify as B/Sers would try to write a quality B/A fic. I was thinking that if there were around an even number of B/Aers and B/Sers, each B/Aer could get partnered to a B/Ser. These "partnerships" could mean various things, something as traditional as each partner makes requests and the other has to write to one of their requests*, or maybe the partners could kind of discuss their ideas and process as they write.

GUYS. [livejournal.com profile] rahirah wrote B/A. The internets are going to implode. Spuffy fen will disown her. Get me a bowl of ice cream as I watch apocalypse. And post Spuffy smut (she called me out).

Reprise
Spuffy, NC-17, post NFA, snippet
Cut to spare the B/A sensibilities of...okay, maybe 30% of my flist. Also, I think it uh, rhymes. What's up with that? )

Title: Best Souvenir
Rating: PG for now
Warnings: None for now
Pairings: just B/A for now

Chapter 16 )

Title: Conceit(s)
Rating: NC-17
Pairings: B/A. Very B/A, except it's all about Spike. The ending is B/A/S.
Summary: This used to be titled, "5 Ways Those Bluggy Birds Never Shagged", but Spike decided to make it eponymous.
A/N: Warning for experimentation with style, POV, voice, and uh, reality. Take it with a grain of salt, I guess.

Part of the IWRY Fic Marathon.
With love, for [livejournal.com profile] chrisleeoctaves

Title: Walk Like Men
Length: about 1,500 words
Rating: G-man!
Disclaimer: not mine, use of WTTH and "Angel" and Twelfth Night
Summary: Buffy and Connor.
A/N: Guess I got a bee up my butt with that post about ideas and not being able to write short fics, or something. I've had this forever. It stands alone, but I have so many ideas for what happens afterwards that I was going to write a novella. But this is so stand aloneish that I guess if I do those ideas, they'll be more like sequels than subsequent chapters. I guess I just want to share, all the sudden. I don't know.

Hopefully after that post filled with hearts and love and flowers, everyone (who gives a damn) can tell I love B/A. Much thanks for all that lovely discussion, and reccing to bring other people into discuss. It was lots o' fun, and I think even some people who didn't love B/A could see that there are many wonderful excellent things about it, things that make our knees go squishy, things that make us think it's something that is real and true in both characters.

That said, there're things that just drives me personally crazy about it, and not in a good way.

Stuff I just can't stand about B/A )

Also, I love B/A fanfic. It's what brought me to the fandom, and there are a bunch of talented B/A authors and a bunch of great B/A fics. But there are also certain things that crop up in some B/A fanfic that's not to my taste. These are just my opinions, personal quibbles and dislikes I have. Actually, almost all of these things have appeared in excellent fics I've loved to death--in the end, it really just depends on how these elements are handled. Disclaimer over, now onto the dirt. ;o)

Things I don't like to see in B/A fanfic (prove me wrong!) )

Okay, now that the unpleasantness is over, rec a fic with these elements you really really like. Or explain why you like the canon B/A bits I dislike and woo me into loving them too. Or rant about things you dislike about your own OTP here or here (it's never too late). Or love, love hard, on B/A, other pairings, Jossverse, fandom, kittens, soda pop, and your RL honey, be it your husband, your dog, or--if you're like me--that big bar of chocolate and B/A ep you plan on curling up with tomorrow.

ETA: I hate the term "Bangel". That's at the top of my list.

B/A Thingy

A rant, a squee, and an essay walked into a bar and produced this meta-cle miracle.

What B/A means to me. )

*

Okay, so that was really long. Thoughts? I'm aware not all of this makes sense. I wanted to say something all meaningful about B/A, but I have a tendency to gush when it comes to them. So, questions? Concerns? Yeah . . . Buts? Links to B/A meta? Links to manifestos of your own ship? Feel a need to gush about your ship, also? Here is fine or here. Because ship love is . . . hey! It's love.

I'm invoking my official capacity as . . . Official Capacity Invoking Gal to declare this month the Month Of The OTP.

Because when some people think of B/A they think: they're so over. And when some people think of A/S they think: but they're not gay! And when some people think of S/X they think: I . . . I just don't get it. And when some people read B/F they think: I'm liking it and I don't even know why! And when some people read B/Gunn they think: hey! those two never even met!

And so I'm going to share my love for my own OTP. I have a bunch of bits floating around in my back up files (because my comp blew up) and in my head that're all about My Favorite Pairing: why I ship them, why I love them, things I think other people should know about them, recs I want and recs I want to give, what I hate about it, things I feel like whining about in regards to it.

I love B/A. I want others who love B/A to splooge with me in a cesspit of love. And I want others who don't love B/A to learn something about my love, or to grow to respect it, or to try a fic and discover they kinda like it or no, that they really hate it, or to point and laugh and say affectionately, oh, you silly B/Aers, we all know Snyder/Oz is the only ship worth squeeing over! I want those who don't love B/A to share their B/S love, or A/S love, or S/X love, or B/F love, or Snyder/Oz love, and teach me something about it, or romance me into loving it with them.

So I'm going to try to organize my B/A bits and share my love, because I'm nothing if not a great big old mushy . . . Mushy Gal. And because I doubt anyone else has been collecting OTP bits and wondering what to do with them like I have, or that anyone is going to say: this is a great idea tkp, let me go squee in my own journal right now (though I'm secretly hoping every one of you will, which is apparently no longer a secret), you can do it here.

Because I'm interested in you, your loves, your fic, your recs, your kinks, your complaints, your why doesn't anyone see the beauty of Lilah/Clem?s, your rants, your squees, your flames, your meta, your why I'm here in this fandom!s . . . and also because gosh darn it, I like you, and I want to like your 'ship too. )

Chapter thirteen of Best Souvernir. (Whistler never existed. Buffy and Angel meet after the End of Days is over. Future fic, alternate reality.)

A/N: Big thanks to [livejournal.com profile] a2zmom who has picked up on my fault of over-explaining characters until they're no longer interesting.

from 12:

Angel, looking vexed, a little bored, said, “What are you talking abou—”

“Gypsies.”
