the latest Angel: After the Fall comic.

OMG, Y'ALL. *flails* BIG FAT SPOILER BEHIND THE CUT )

Now I really need to go through and read the whole series, start to finish.

This is so much better than the Buffy comic. Fer serious. Honestly, I don't know how much longer I'll be reading that. It's okay, but I've never been as invested in BtVS as I was in AtS.

The lovely and effulgent [livejournal.com profile] liz_marcs asks: Who are your Top 5 OTPs? And that got me to thinking, and I shall reproduce my reply to that post here.

My number-one, cast-iron OTP is Spike/Fred, and I will never forgive the writers for having Spike go to Harmony after he got solid again instead of running to the lab and giving Fred a big ol' bearhug. However, when he knocked Pavayne into the circle that was supposed to make him corporeal in "Hellbound," in order to save Fred--that was the moment for me. She thought he was worth saving, and he sacrificed what he thought was his only chance to be a "real boy" for her...yeah. *dreamy sigh* Spike and Fred don't have the baggage that Spike and Buffy do--she wasn't even around for the Ring of Amarra incident. So she sees him as he is rather than as what he was, which is everyone else's handicap.

I'm not sure I have any other OTP's, by the strict definition. I have pairings I enjoy, and pairings I write to the exclusion of others. But at the same time, I don't see any contradiction in shipping Spike with both Fred and Illyria--because my Spike/Fred ship is an AR, and the Spike/Illyria ship is dependent on canon. Had the Spike/Fred ship happened on the show, I couldn't ship Spike/Illyria. If that makes any sense.

Then there's Firefly. Wash/Zoe is the obvious OTP there, for all the reasons that everyone else has ever mentioned. However, Jayne is the Little Black Dress in that fandom, and in a post-BDM world, I could see him and Zoe coming to an ... understanding. And I can't really see her with anyone else on the crew. Had Wash lived, then I never would have conceived of Jayne/Zoe as a pairing, but it works for me in an odd way after what happened. They've bantered back and forth ("I can hurt you." "Zoe could get nekkid."), so Jayne's attraction to her has always been there, and I think the argument could be made that she rather likes him too. If he made an effort, who knows what could happen?

And then there is my favorite crossover pairing: Jayne/Illyria. *facepalm* Jayne sees the world very simply, and I think that would appeal to a God-King who's had a drooling fanboy and a broken genius as her Qwa-ha Zahns. And I'm fair certain that Jayne would be attracted to her--I mean, look at her.

*ponders some more* You know...this whole thing may be a function of just sticking my favorite characters together. Shallow? Moi?

Dude. I just found a book I've been hunting for AGES. It usually goes for well over $100 on eBay. And it's, like less than 40% of that. *flails* Yes, I'm going to the bank right now to make a deposit.

In the meantime, I leave you with fic.

Title: Survivors' Guilt

Fandom: Angel
Rating: PG-13
Length: Short story (around 3500 words)
Disclaimer: Joss is the genius behind these characters; I am but a lowly follower. I make no money from any of this, so please don't sue me.
Written for: [livejournal.com profile] soundingsea's UnFicathon. Requestor was [livejournal.com profile] doyle_sb4 and was from the "Threesome with a Twist" ficathon. Three characters: Spike, Illyria, and Angel. No Wes. Darkfic set after NFA. No non-con or use of the word "childe." Genre: Angst.
Notes: A bit out of my comfort zone, but thought I'd try. Not sure if what came out is what was wanted; it's not real dark and some mention of Wes was unavoidable (hey, more angst!), but the characters wouldn't cooperate--so I thought it better to be true to what I thought they'd actually do rather than force them into a mold they wouldn't fit in.
Onward to the fic! )

I finally got the bright idea of hitting my favorite quote site to find a title. So, here's my "We Will Not Fade Away" Ficathon entry.

Written for: The "We Will Not Fade Away" Angel Ficathon. [livejournal.com profile] vampedvixen requested Spike, Illyria, and Connor, Spike/Illyria but mostly gen, Happy!Connor, and some sort of celebration after they win the battle. No slash, please.
Notes: Had a hard time with this, mostly because of the whole "celebration" aspect. Hopefully a pizza party and a toast fulfills that requirement. The title is from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow: "Noble souls, through dust and heat, rise from disaster and defeat the stronger." clicky for ficcy! )

Notes: Illyria's POV during TGIQ.


Wesley's grief was bad enough. The stench of it fills my nostrils like the decay of thousands of dead creatures left on a battlefield to rot in the sun. He and the shell were not even mates as such, but he is nearly incapacitated.

A father's affection for his offspring is deeper. Wesley had attempted to kill me, when I first manifested. I can only imagine how Roger Burkle would feel. The thought of his sorrow when he learns of the shell's fate nauseates me. I cannot bear it.

And so I won't, I decide, as I take her form.
