  • Your current OTP

    So I wonder - what's your current Buffy OTP (One True Pairing)? Why? Do you read fanfics about your OTP, and if you do, can you give us a link to your favourite fic about your pairing?
    (The last question is the main once, actually. I'm desprate for some good fanfics, aspecially Buffy/Faith fanfics. )

    *Looks at own banner* I think you can probaly guess what my OTP is.

    Saying that when it comes to fanfic I'm fairly free and easy. I prefer to read something which includes Spike in, so my pairing range from a wee bit of Spuffy, through to Wes/Spike, Giles/Spike, Spike/Xander, Spike/Lindsey, and Spike/Dru, and repeat as required. All erotica of course.

    As to favorite fanfics. Oh I have too many to list here, but as far as fairly 'worksafe' ones I'd say this for starters.

    Vampire Winter (Spike/Angel/Buffy) by deborahmm

    As well as any Spander fics by Estepheia

    As to any rec's for Faith/Buffy, I'm afraid I can't help you there as I don't read that pairing myself. Sorry. But I'm sure there must be a ton on live journal somewhere.

      Cool! I'm working on reading the fanfic you recommended (I'm not a fast reader, especially not in English), but you made me curious - Wes/Spike? Anything good?

        My OTP is Spike/Buffy as you can probably tell by my icon
        Promise of Frost is one of my favorite fanfics... here's the link if anyone's interested http://www.athenewolfe.com/justrewar...id=611&index=1
        Your logic does not resemble our earth logic.

          My OTP is shown in my banner and icon. Guess!

          I'm like Sue, but with Xander. I've read Xander paired with every single character on the show, except Willy, that'll be a funny fic.

          Xander/Spike comes in top, other Xander ships I enjoy are Xander/Angel-us, Xander/Giles, Xander/Dawn, Xander/Buffy, Xander/Cordelia, Xander/Larry and Xander/Oz...

          Nowadays I'm more into friendship and gen fics, much less into slash and het, though.

          My favorite Xander/Spike fic at the moment is He Needs Me by Slaymesoftly:

            Well there's a few on deborahmm's site (some are very dark/kinky so observe the warnings If you so decided to read them) but as to 'milder' fics there's this from her site

              My current OTP is Buffy/Xander. For awhile it was Buffy/Spike, and before that Cordelia/Xander, but then I saw the light.

              There's a lot less good B/X fanfic than there should be, but here's a couple of good authors:

              http://www.fanfiction.net/u/58248/Brooke1

              and

              http://www.livejournal.com/tools/mem...ser=m_mcgregor

              The second one throws in a healthy portion of Faith/Xander into most of his stories, but there's nothing wrong with that.

              As for Buffy/Spike, I've lost my links to a lot of my favorites, but I still have probably my favorite of all time:

                Buffy/Spike? Really? I would never have guessed.

                Most of my favourites are listed here, if anyone wants to take a look. There are a few more that aren't available on LiveJournal -- I'll post the links to those later.

                  I don't have a Buffy OTP really. Started off with Buffy/Spike but now, search me. I think Buffy and Xander would make a good couple, but I'm not passionate about it. In terms of fics, I think I'm more interested in angsty/character/wacky stuff at the moment.

                    Have you read Heroes in Hell then? Buffy/Spike.

                    http://distortingmirrors.notanothers...oesinhell.html

                    I think it would appeal to your sense of humour and the absurd. Also it's extremely well written which I suppose does help somewhat.

                    It's rated R too.

                      Ooh, thanks very much for the rec! I haven't been reading much fanfic at all lately, but would like a little to explore.

                      I'm wondering why I don't have an OTP in Buffy....I think it's partly because season 7 ended with the (rubbish speech but truthful to character development) scenario of "cookie dough" Buffy, so I'm inclined to think of her as not in a relationship as her natural state - or at least, for now.

                      And I was never as invested in the relationships of non Buffy people. I mean, people not Buffy!

                      Willow never really had a relationship I was wholly into. Though I would've loved it if they'd given her a bad girl non Tara girlfriend in her bad skanky season 6 period. Someone insalubrious and naughty. Someone who's basically a magic version of Shane from the L Word. Mmmmm!

                      And Xander...well, I think he'd fit with Buffy now, but not so much in teh past....or perhaps, not even quite yet...?

                      Giles and Ethan are my buddy-pairing-with-subtext OTP perhaps. And Giles/Andrew as exasperation buddies. Anyone know any good fics about Giles training Andrew? Not in a dirty way (my brain would break I think at the thought of them together...though if someone wrote a convincing one of those I would take my hat off and eat it).

                        The nearest we got with that was Amy I suppose, but not even a hint at anything sexual between them, sadly.

                        Giles and Ethan are my buddy-pairing-with-subtext OTP perhaps.
                        Have you read any fics by Estepheia on live journal? She always writes wonderful fics with those two. It's a pity she's not as active in fandom anymore. Her standard of writing was always very high.

                        As to Giles/Andrew. Err, no. I haven't seen any in that pairing really. But then as Andrew still grates on me to this day I suppose If I had I may have blanked them out!

                            Wow, nice lists, Xavier.

                            I've never liked Wesley/Fred all that much, either. I thought it would be right up my alley, what with the unrequited love, but... no. Might be because of the Instant Romance in Season 5 of Angel; always a turn-off for me (see Angel/Cordelia, see Angel/Buffy, see Gunn/Fred).

                              I also never liked Welsey/Fred! Nice to know I'm not the only one. Actually I thought Gunn and Fred were adorable in S3, but they had to break them up in S4 for Wesley/Fred.

                              I don't like when a relationship turns into this big romance thing. I like it more when it's normal... or you know ugly, but at least realistic.

                                I liked Fred as a character best when she was solitary, or when she was simultaneously ruining her relationship with both Gunn and Wes like in Season 4. She was also great when she was crazy or when she was badass. I loved her in the beginning of Season 3. I loved her holding a crossbow on someone and explaining exactly how he was going to die once she shot him through the throat. I loved her going after her bastard of a professor in vengeful fury. I hated them making her the perfect love of every guy that got within ten feet of her. I also hated that Wes' crush on her ruined what he had with Lilah, which was more real than anything he ever got with Fred or would have gotten even if she hadn't been gutted by Illyria.

                                But, as much as I loved Fred, I really really really love Illyria.

                                  My three favorite ships are Xander/Cordelia, Angel/Cordelia, and Wesley/Lilah. Annnndd...all of those are pretty much done, considering that out of five people listed, four of them are dead. I don't really 'ship any of them in the sense that I would like them to get back together (actually, if Cordy or Lilah did legitimately, 100%-for-real come back from the dead, I'd be pretty annoyed), but I do appreciate them in their time. But since I'm a huge stickler for canon, it makes it hard to find fics-- I love "Missing Moment" fics, but if it goes AU at all, (like Cordelia and Angel hooking up in the middle of AtS Season Two) then I lose interest.

                                  As far as my least favorite 'ships, I'd have to say Fred/Gunn, Willow/Kennedy, and Fred/Wesley-- although I do love Wesley's obsession with her. I thought it made his character so much more interesting, and I was disappointed in Season Five when the writers turned it into this adorable whirlwind romance instead of the much darker and complex relationship that it had been in Seasons Three and Four.

                                  And as for Buffy...I go back and forth on whether I like her better with Angel or Spike. But right now, she's kind of lost my love, so I can't really work up the energy to want her with anyone.
                                  The story's kinda bland. It's about this guy named Dumbledore Calrissian who needs to return the ring back to Mordor.

                                    I used to adore Wes/Lilah! What a marvelosuly dark relationship they had. A fantastic match.

                                    It's such a shame that they didn't deem to bring her back for season 5. That would have been the cherry of the cake for me if they had.

                                      That's it exactly.

                                      And I'm right there with you on the Illyria love, Xavier. She's my third favourite character in the 'verse, after Buffy and Spike. I never really liked Fred... Joss seems to enjoy the "genius"/"off with the faeries" dichotomy (also evident in Firefly's River), but I just can't sympathize with those kind of characters at all.

                                        Me neither. Women who looked like they'd snap in half with a good gust of wind and who 'baby talk' leave me cold.
