    I try not to be annoyed by things I read in fanfics, god knows I don't have the talent to tell stories But I really do hate Spike saying "cor".


    I like who I am when Im with him. I like who we are together.

    claims. they seriously annoy me.
    I have others but need to think on it.

    oh, I know! I hate the term "precious cargo" referring to carrying someone. He laid down his precious cargo. Does it come in FF dictionary or something? I saw it in so many fics.

    Just read chapter 14 of a fic I was really enjoying and saw there was only one chapter left. I knew the story couldn't be wound up in one chapter, so checked, and yes, it was unfinished! So annoyed at myself for not checking before I started reading

    No. It was last updated January 2007

    Unfinished fics are so frustrating. I know writers don't deliberately set out to leave their works unfinished, but I really wish they wouldn't publish anything until the story was finished.

    Yep, we've all fallen to that now and then. Which story is it?? Sometimes they don't update everywhere and it is complete on another site.

    It's Possession by icemink. The description is awful (AU Spike loses a poker game and finds himself as a sex slave purchased by Buffy) but it's actually much much better than that would suggest. He's not a sex slave, Buffy uses him as a fighter and I'd just got to the part where Buffy had sold him to Darla . . .

    I'm almost certain I've read that and read it all. I'll check too.

    Yep, all 24 chapters were on SpuffyRealm.

    Stoney:

    The site is still down and I don't think it will be going back online. It's been more than a week now. Hopefully there will be access to the stories via the waybackmachine.

    That fic isn't on Wayback. You can find the site, but clearly not all fics are fully captured. That tends to happen on and off on a lot of the old sites that have gone down.

    If Pari is ill it may well come back online when she is well again. I can't remember when the fund raising was supposed to be until but I don't think it was at renewal yet (although I could be wrong).

    I've started it but, TBH, it's made me feel a bit queasy.

    Okay - got to C14 and I'm depressed. Can someone let me know how it finishes please?
