It's a reflection upon fanfic itself, while still being a serious look at Spike and Buffy.

    This sounds really quirky/different, I'd definitely be up for reading this but wonder if it should be included in the short fics week we were talking about as it is fairly 'over' the max 7-10k we were saying for a one-two day turnaround?? Perhaps we could just give it an extra day, or maybe occasionally group 2/3 fics around the 15-20k mark for reading within one week too??

    I would put it in the list of fics to be read and discussed for a week. Maybe we need some shorter stories from time to time ;-). But if we get some more suggestions for a fic between 15k-20k, we could do another week with several fics as well.

    I have set the date for the discussion of Holly`s fic for 25th May 2018.

    It is a rather short story (word count about 20k words), so Iīd plan one week for it. After that we will continue with Wooden Path, which is rather long, on 1st June 2018.

    We have suggestions for another short story (Reflections) and for a week (or two weeks) of one-shots. If no one objects, I am going to put them on the list of to-discuss-fics.

    If anyone likes to suggest more fics, please go ahead! I am also still waiting for suggestions for one.shots (max. word-count 7k words).

    Okay, you asked for it! Here's a list of one-shots from Seasonal_Spuffys past. Some are funny, some are wistful, some are angsty. Different seasons, different authors.

    Season 2:
    She Will Remember Him? by moscow_watcher (R, 7,135 words)
    Alternate (Spuffier) S2 from viewpoint of 12-year-old Dawn.

    Season 3:
    Present by ladyoneill (R, 4,835 words)
    Buffy's reached her 18th birthday and the Watchers' Council traditionally gives such Slayers a very special gift. Not a fight to the death, for once.

    Season 4:
    Reciprocal by the_moonmoth (NC-17, 10,000 words, or thereabouts)
    In which there is a claim, not on purpose, and that is just the beginning of the problems.

    Season 5:
    The Promise by annapurna_2 (PG13, 1,000 words)
    The final battle with Glory has a different outcome, and the Scoobies hate him for it — but they're alive, aren't they?

    Season 6:
    A New Life by freecat15 (PG13, 4,365 words)
    The Tabula Rasa spell takes awhile to break. A fable.

    Season 7:
    Walking at Midday by Quinara (M, 7,500 words)
    Spike’s beginning to get the feeling Buffy may be in love with him. It’s terrifying.

    AtS: S5:
    Life Is Beautiful by Sunalso (R, 3,970 words)
    The one in which Buffy and Spike are idiots and Dawn gets something else to speak to her therapist about.

    Post-NFA:
    Legion by Elinora (PG13, 3,200 words)
    "A History of the New Legion of Slayers" (Rough Draft)*What really happened, with commentary by Andrew Wells.

    Post-series:
    Last Dance by shapinglight (PG13, 2,442 words)
    After the apocalypse, Buffy keeps on fighting.

    Comics:
    What semi-retired champions do on their nights off by bobthemole (PG, 4,100 words)
    The title is an accurate summary.

    I've got alternate links if something doesn't work. And I've got more suggestions if these don't suit.

    So, I'm putting this in as a fanfic recommendation (which incidentally the fanfic writer Sigyn loved!) because it's beautifully written (and hot) and features an alternative fantasy that takes place in my favourite episode Fool for Love. It's quite short.

    Word count: 4,426 words

    Just A Little Death Wish by Acajou Amarth
    http://www.spikeluver.com/SpuffyReal...t=ok&warning=5
    Buffy S5: Fool for Love
    When a Slayer hears the story of one life and two deaths from
    a vampire she hates, things spiral out of control completely.
    Spuffy PWP, set during 'Fool for Love'. Oneshot.

    We will be discussing a rather short fic (Holly`s The Other Side of Midnight) next and after that a rather long fic (Linnae13`s Wooded Path). I am planning two weeks for Wodded Path and would like to do a discussion of short one-shots (one story within two days) from the 15th June on.

    I am planning two weeks for that, to give everyone the chance to read and discuss within 48 hours. From July on we can discuss another "normal" fic again.

    Does anybody want to suggest another story? We still have some suggestions pending, like Reflections by MsClawdia, sex, lies and sonograms by sabershadowcat, Dreamer by Gort, Long Day`s Journey by anaross, Etched in Stone, by Flowerofthewolf....

    I'm in chapter 12 of Awakenings at the moment. I just keep failing to get enough free time to sit and read more than a small chunk at a time and with the Dead Things review due to finish up any moment, this may not be about to improve any time soon. I want to keep reading though and I will post when I get finished. You never know, I might blast through it this weekend before I move on to DT.

    In an ideal world I'll be free to join you for Holly's fic and Wooded Path. I also really fancy the short stories idea too. I have read Etched in Stone and wouldn't want to reread it, so I might be able to catch up with everything when you guys read that if I'm still lagging.

    I just want to say - I really like the idea of reading Long Day's Journey by anaross. It sounds so interesting - I've started reading a little bit and it was really gripping. So I hope that gets included!

    I will happily jump in on Long Day's Journey. I am reading another Anaross spuffy -Ransomed, Healed, Restored, Forgiven. I like her fresh eyes - just finished a terrific discussion between Giles and Spike about the propaganda that the Council gives the slayers and the realities that are too troublesome to risk conveying to a 16 year who can't hesitate.
    Can we agree that the writers made everyone do and say everything with a thought to getting good ratings and being renewed. This includes everything we love as well as everything we hate.

    Angel: ""What size jeans do you wear?" It was a stupid thing to be asking a man just resurrected, but Spike didn't protest. He just whispered, "Thirty-two inseam. Thirty-two waist." For that alone, Angel thought, I should drop him.

    LMAO! Actually - that's a lie. The opening brought tears to my eyes and I'm usually an emotionless reader (WTF, I'm just emotionless - period). I'll read this - thanks!

    I kind of stumbeld across this fic:

    Ahead of Her Time, by haleycc 

    Season 5, after Family, Words: 39,499

    and I want to suggest it for a group reading. It is a season 5 time travel fic. But this time it is neither Spike nor Buffy, who travel in time, it is a Watcher from the future, who travels back to season 5.

    Does anyone know it?

    Apparently I've read it, but I don't remember it at all, so I'd be happy to read it again if you wanted to put it on the reading list.

    I have a suggestion for the discussion thread frontierland by gort. Gort is one half of the dynamic team that brought us Stranger Things. I'm suggesting it because it has a little bit of everything, it is a real Buffy Spike story but with a spell that gives you kind of an all human story within the story. It's funny, well written and different but not so different that it's like the fairy tale one many of us couldn't get into. I'm about a third of the way through frontierland which is part one of
    3 stories. It might have to be a long story if we opt to read all 3.
