  • Another SummerFrost fic recommendation:

    if i think that you might like me (i might start getting lonely) by SummerFrost on AO3

    This is a fic for all cat lovers. Spike gets adopted by a cat! He names the cat Rupert. Giles is not amused. Set in season 4, 25k words. This fic has very little Buffy in it but a lot of Scoobie & Spike friendship. It's funny, it's hilarious and then all of a sudden it breaks your heart. And unbreaks it again. Fantastic!

      This sounds like good fun, I've added it to my ever expanding 'to read' wish list.

    I have been wanting to read something by SummerFrost, and this one sounds right up my alley! Thanks for the rec

    Right now I am reading Pretty Petals by Dusty. I was actually looking for Dusty's current Spuffel WIP, Embers, but it isn't on AO3 yet. Instead I got sucked into Pretty Petals, and I have been really enjoying it so far. It's a Season 5 rewrite that goes AU from after Joyce's death. In this AU, Spike did manage to deliver his flowers!

      Pretty Petals is really good, but Flickers is still my favorite from Dusty.

      redtent I still need to read Flickers; besides Pretty Petals I've only read Safe so far. Thanks for the rec!

      I just finished it and now I am heartbroken that there are no more new SummerFrost fics for me. I'll go start re-reading...

  • I am going to leave a very short summary of the two most recent SummerFrost Spuffy fics.

    (love me) as much as your heart can stand by SummerFrost

    This story is set in season 6 and like her other season 6 story it is definitely harsher and edgier than her season 4 and season 5 fics. But juxtaposed against a dark affair where Buffy comes to Spike to get hurt there is a lovely, fluffy online romance developing in the style of You've Got Mail. It's sometimes difficult to believe neither of them realizes that Anne and William are in fact Buffy and Spike but it is fun to go along with it. Fair warning: There is a scene in this fic that involves fisting. There was a discussion about this in fanfics recently (I admit I have never come across it before) but in this fic, the scene is written with so much love that it really should not put anyone off reading the story.

    wouldn't it be nice? (in the kind of world where we belonged) by SummerFrost

    This fic is set in season 4 and just because of that so much more lighthearted than the above-mentioned "love me as much as your heart can stand". It starts off with Something Blue and retells the tale of Buffy and Spike planning their marriage. After the spell has been broken both Buffy and Spike have to deal with the repercussions and turn to the only person who is going through the same. Slowly a friendship develops and they grow closer and closer. But their friendship is not a shortcut to Spuffyness. It is the main focus of the fic and only at the very end they both admit there might be feelings involved.

    I really can't say which one of SummerFrosts Spuffy fics I like most. They are all so very well written that you can pick one fic when you are in a season 6 mood and another when you are in a season 5 mood and you'll always be happy with your choice.

    I hope she continues to write for Spuffy.

      "Wouldn't it be nice" was AMAZING, I'm going to read all of SummerFrost's fics now.

  • All I can say is keep those recs coming - I am having a blast reading. The cat story is actually a really great episode that they never filmed - one of the best eps ever.
    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.

      I finished reading this fic this weekend and I just want to say it is everything flow says it is! Absolutely wonderful and fully recommended, also for non-cat lovers. (But I'm sure cat lovers will appreciate it even more. This was clearly written by someone who knows cats.)
