This year it will also be 40 years since Queen made their first album, 40 years since Tubular Bells came out, 30 years since the first Discworld book, 20 years since Babylon 5 started, and the 10 anniversary of the final episode of Buffy.
(plus five years since The Mentalist started, but that's not quite yet celebration worthy)
All the things I love will be having an anniversary this year.
...oh, and a heads-up that there might be something interesting happening at xf_is_love in the future ;)
(I should probably also see if there's any interest for babylon5_love this year, too)

Spike/Buffy banner by comlodge.
The Chiller Channel is running a BtVS marathon on Sunday.
Another look at SMG's new CBS series.
Either entrance is acceptable swag. Both happening within ten minutes? BAMF.
Okay I don't actually have a gif because trying to search through Potter fandom is freakishly stressful. But my Potterverse nomination goes to Dumbledore. Thoughts?
Regina/The Evil Queen
Fact: Misandry multiplies swag by a factor of X, where X = "number of men flung around with extreme prejudice."
Possibly I should've disqualified Marcel because I'm fairly sure his first entrance is actually that screencap up there? Not that he doesn't have a daylight right, he just prefers to be carried around. This century's hottest accessory for the worthy challenger to the Original Hybrid? SWAG.

1. Bela Fleck at the new SF Jazz Center. Banjo fun! (Also, dinner beforehand with dear friends.)
2. Gershwin and Ravel at the SF Symphony with Dear Old Dad, who was in town for....
3. McDiva's Third Annual Fashion Show! Big doings! A triumph! One of these days, I'll post pictures.
4. A whole bunch of school-related stuff, and also work related, well, work.
5. Huge flurry of getting ready for vacation/college tour week. Still on-going. Why else would I be making a post?
But I had to note that today is the fifth anniversary of posting my first fanfic on LJ! Just five years after Buffy the Vampire Slayer went off the air. Late to the party, but very happy to be here. herself_nyc encouraged me to try my hand, and I posted without knowing it was her birthday! So, now it's a milestone day for two reasons. Happy birthday to you, darling, and happy fanniversary to me. I hoped to have some fic to post today, but that's not happening. I am working on my Seasonal Spuffy story, though, so there will be something soon!
Love to you all!

As always, you may create whatever you like. You may use the main episode prompts or do something — anything — else. Recommendations are heartily welcomed. Next week, be ready to focus on Hellbound!
This may seem like one of those apocryphal funnies that gets posted around on Facebook, but I tested it out, and yup, these are pretty much the kind of autocomplete results you get from Google for these phrases. It's not Google or grammarians or any other social arbiters being elitist—these are autocomplete results compiled and run automatically through Google's algorithms. Millions of searches and selections confirm that these are the likely phrases being searched for.

Reccing is what makes fandom go 'round, says I. Come tell people about things you've read and loved! Or seen and loved!
(I suddenly realize that I really, really need an icon of Jared from that Mary-Kate and Ashley movie with the quote, "Is today my birthday?" Partly, let's be honest, because he's ridiculously hot in that scene, and I say that as a Jensen girl. But also because it'd be useful. :D)

Characters: Buffy, Faith
Notes: Written for the Sunnydale High School 10th Anniversary Comment!Ficathon.
Summary: Another apocalypse down, Buffy and Faith decide to duck out of the clean up and share a well earned bottle of tequila.
( Beside her Faith was also pulling herself up, brushing off the dust and debris of what used to be the town square fountain. Collapse )
ANYWAY! In honour of the 10 year anniversary I thought 'Sod it, I love this fic, I'll start posting!' And then hopefully people will nag me into finishing it, because it's a properly EPIC story with world building and character development and PLOT and all kinds of things that people should appreciate. Of course fandom is now a fraction of what it was, but I'm hoping to lure in a few readers for old times' sake... Because I'm seriously proud of this fic. (My guarantee to you: it's better than the comics!) Figure I'll post a chapter every few weeks, and then hopefully be able to get started with writing again once I reach the end of what I've got...
Disclaimer: I own nothing.
Characters: Spike, Angel, Illyria, Buffy, Scoobies + cameos from more or less everyone in the 'verse.
Feedback: Is bloody ambrosia! (The secret ingredient is otter...)
Setting and Summary: This is the sequel to ‘Maybe Someday’ (or, more accurately, Maybe Someday was the prequel for this), in which Spike, Angel and Illyria turned up in Rome and encountered Buffy (Sept. 2004). During the following week Buffy and Spike started dating (and working through their issues), Illyria picked up some handy portal opening powers and Angel got a lead on someone who used to know the Wolf, Ram and Hart. This fic starts the evening after that fic ended. The story chronicles Angel, Spike and Illyria’s attempt at taking down W&H. Can it be done? And if so, what will the price be? (That’s all the warning I’m going to give you, OK? Don’t yell at me later. Also see quote below.)
SPIKE: What do you think all this means for that Shanshu bugaboo? If we make it through this, does one of us get to be a real boy?
ANGEL: Who you kidding? We're not gonna make it through.
‘Not Fade Away’

(I completely hate the title, btw, but this is my best effort as of 11pm last night. So. Just let your eyes slide right over that part.)
Very warm wishes to you, and hope you're having a simply wonderful day today. :)
I’ve never been one for big cities. In some ways, I think of it as an extension of my introversion. Big cities = too many people, too much going on, and I get twitchy just thinking about it.
But I’ve watched my fellow authors do the occasional New York trip to visit with editors and agents, and it’s been strongly advised by a number of folks that I do the same, especially with the relative success of Libriomancer.
So when I received an invitation to moderate the Adult Book Bloggers Panel at Book Expo of America in New York, I was happy to say yes. I’m even happier now that I’ve been chatting with my panelists, including Sarah from Smart Bitches, Trashy Books — the woman responsible for making me do this — along with Mandi from Smexy Books and Rebecca from The Book Lady’s Blog.
My BEA schedule, excluding meetings and such, looks like so:
- 5/29, 11:15 a.m. – 12:05 p.m. — Book Blogging Panel.
- 5/31, 3:30 p.m. – 4 p.m. — Signing at the SFWA table.
- 6/1, 12 p.m. – 12:30 p.m. — “Meet the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America,” with myself, Jeri Smith-Ready, and Leanna Renee Hieber.
I am both excited and a bit intimidated. I’ve been to NYC once in my life, helping a friend move, and that was more than a decade ago. On the other hand, I’ll be spending time with a lot of great people, and attending an event devoted to the awesomeness of books. How can you not love that?
So blogging will be light to nonexistent next week. This will be my first time at BEA, and my second time in NYC (the first was more than a decade ago, helping a friend move, and I didn’t see that much of the city). My plan is to try to have fun, hopefully collect some books, and shamelessly gawk at everything.
Wish me luck, and if you’re going to be at BEA, then I hope to see you there!
