    GoSpuffy:

    Tablets are just big phones.
    Am I missing the button that allows me to make a call from my ipad? I read on my lap-top and on aforementioned ipad - never tried it from my phone. I also use a small kindle (because the ipad's too big for some of my bags) - actually past tense 'cos it was small enough to lose.

    I've started the Barbverse again because by the time I'd got to the end I'd forgotten the beginning. I've got visions of never being able to get away from the damned thing...I'll be trapped in a loop. I'm thinking of reading it backwards. It might be worth starting a thread.

    @tribel my tablet is somehow connected to my phone and I can answer calls on it. Don't ask me how or why. Probably something one of my kids did to help me. They are both "apples" so maybe they talk to each other? I make Priceless look like an astronaut to my caveman when it comes to technology.


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

    Well, that explains why you couldn't find the app Priceless mentioned... But you could also download the stories to your iPad, and then open them with a program that will allow you to change the font size. Instructions on how to download from AO3 are here:

    (I suppose that for the short stories this would be too much hassle, but for the long ones it would be really worth the effort.)

    Ah...I've got an apple and a galaxy. Story of my life - incompatibility, not speaking to each other. Just like being married...

    It might be worth starting a thread.

    a) What discussion group?
    b) Sigh...When I suggest something, it's always in the hope that someone else will do it! I'm a lazy cow an ideas person not a doing person.
    c) I'll do it...but don't blame me if I mess it up!
    d) I've done it...don't blame me if it's messed up (past tense).

    I am re-reading Thursday's Child by zabjade at the moment and I am surprised at how much more I like it compared to my first read. When I read it for the first time, I noticed that it was unusual and very well written but only now during my second read I find it really unique and outstanding. Especially this story's Spike has grown a lot on me and his characterization is fantastic. It's a very powerful story. Sadly zabjade has pulled it from EF but you can still find it on AO3.

    It really is. Did 'vanishing' mean going back in time? Or is this Buffy's version of heaven? It's pretty ambiguous

    I read it initially as "going back in time" (there's a reference to a loop). However, there are clues dropped that mean it could be Heaven. Alternatively, it could be madness (Normal) or an actual AU. I think it's deliberately ambiguous - that's kinda what I liked about it.

    Yes, I read it as ambiguous too. It is even possible that there was no AU and season 3 Buffy just had a strange dream with a strange Spike in it. I like the ambiguity.

    I love the ambiguity, it works really well and adds a intensity to the story. I don't think it's S3 Buffy having a dream because Dawn and Tara are mentioned . . . though that could speak to her forseeing the future in her Slayer dreams. Either way, I really liked it.

    This is still a WIP but it's lovely and it's being updated regularily. Benji is a published author living with his daughter Lily in a city called Sunnyvale in the year 2110. His next door neighbours names are William and Buffy...

    That sounds so interesting flow, and i will definitely read it, but I won't until it's finished . . . i can't stand the heartbreak of loving a fic and then the author loses motivation
