    I do love a fic rec thread

    I've been reading a lot of old fics and I'd love to be recommended some new fics. Do you think there is a difference in how the characters are written between new fics and fics written in the early 2000's or even while the show was being aired?

    I should have mentioned that Buffyverse Top 5 is about every kind of fan work. You can also rec fan vids or fan art. It just has to be five.

    Make a list and post it there!

    I am thinking about doing a rec list for crossover fics.

    There was a very fascinating discussion about this on the EF FB discussion group a while ago (you should really join!).

    I don't think the characters are really written differently but the themes have changed. Of course, the very early Spuffy fics lack the tons of background we got for Spike with FFL and LMPTM. So there is that. Apart from that, I do think early Spuffy fics tend to be more dark, more angsty and more dystopian, while recent Spuffy fics often focus on a healthy and happy relationship.

    For example, I can't remember a Slave-Spuffy-fic that has been written within the last five years or so. Those kinds of fics are usually older.
