gosh i should make a tag for all these progress posts

adorkablebuffy  asked:

Can you recommend any good spuffy fan fic? 🙊

I certainly can! You’ve come to the right place :D first of all if you go through the fic rec tag on my blog you’ll find a lot of good stuff. 

Second, here’s what I would call the Spuffy classics:

West of the Moon, East of the Sun - no Spuffy rec list is complete without this amazing s5 rewrite by KnifeEdge. 

DUST - once you’ve finished WotM and the withdrawal symptoms kick in, you should torture yourself by reading her even better, tragically unfinished, s4 rewrite. 

The Barbverse by BarbC - Starts off as an s6 rewrite and metastasizes into the one ring of Spuffy fanfic. One series to rule them all, one series to find them, one series to bring them all and in the darkness bind them. Without a doubt the best depiction of a soulless!Spike x Buffy relationship you’ll ever see. Unmissable. 

Embers by coalitiongirl - the ultimate comic fic, not the season 9 we deserved, but the one we needed. You don’t have to have read s8 (and in fact I advise against reading that train wreck) to appreciate this gem. 

Buffy season noir by Anna S - yes it’s unfinished. No that doesn’t matter. Skip the first chapter if you get bogged down in it, it’s really not necessary to appreciate this fantastically imaginative virtual season. 

The Writing on the Wall by Holly - wonderful, so long as you’re not bothered by soulless!Spike and Buffy. An alternate resurrection. 

A Stone’s Throw From Yesterday by Eurydice - one of my all time favourite post series stories. The rest of her writing (and she was prolific!) is also very much worth reading. 

Living Conditions by sweetprincipale - one of the many fics where Buffy ended up meeting Spike in LA. If you’re a really harsh judge of soulless!Spike characterisation, I would avoid, but the slow burn is fantastic. She too has many other enjoyable stories to explore. 

Clocks of the Long Now by lostboy - a post series epic. Spuffy is more of a subplot than the focus I suppose but it’s totally worth it. 

Quinara - I can’t pick just one of her stories, so read them all. 

The Deadly Hook - same deal but I do love Dirty Back Road. 

Anaross - another, oh gosh, ‘I can’t pick’ author. Sadly her amazing story My Life Closed Twice has been taken down, but I might have a copy if you ask real nice ;) 

Third, here’s some newer but no less awesome writers:

stuffandnonsense - has a beautifully angsty well written s6 rewrite in progress and some other lovely shorter stories.

CupCakeCute - look, if you haven’t read About A Girl, then I question your life choices. 

Bewildered - the queen of crack fic. Go forth and fall in love with her magical ability to make zany work. 

the_moonmoth has a gift for taking tired tropes and making them into something new and wonderful. 

cori_the_bloody - her writing is too good I can’t deal. 

Sigyn - for an author who has no fear of exploring the very darkest edges of Spuffy in painful realism, go here. 

Fourth, here’s some far more in depth lists from other people!

Phew. That should keep you going for a while, yeah? 

                                       LET’S SHIP IT MEME

RULES;;
1. REBLOG IT, make those notes boom!
2. TAG ANYONE WHOSE “APPLICATION” YOU
LIKE AND/OR MATCHES YOURS UNDER “LET’S SHIP IT”.
3. AND/OR TAG ANYONE YOU WOULD LIKE TO
SEE MAKE AN APPLICATION UNDER “SHOW YOUR SAIL”.
4. BOLD EVERYTHING THAT APPLIES TO YOU
OR YOUR MUSE & EXPLAIN WHERE NEEDED.
5. HAVE FUN.

reasoning for this meme;; this is a meme to help you have access to everyone’s preference in shipping. everyone has their own desires for the subject and sometimes we stumble into a really good one, other times we regret, and at times they are just mediocre. if everyone just posted their very own profile of preferences in shipping, then you might just find your very best ship partner that much easier! just remember to tag a mun (or multiple) who posted an application that resonates with yours and if so far, no one’s application has piqued your interest but you would like to see a particular mun’s stats, just tag them (gently) in the appropriate section below.

LET’S SHIP IT !?! TAGGING: nobody because i am the first to make this!! ;D
SHOW YOUR SAIL !! TAGGING: @dereliquit, @unstoppablefate, @waningxmoon@moraldysplasia@albitails, @aoxre, @psythe@kingxfmischief@gin-ichimaru, @saisci, @twobasstards, @peoplejuiice, @ifrinncu@tenxcious, @dearnicolai, @hyperdetect, @talentedropout, @eshajjouri, @shiicn, @tefechi, @duckisms oh my gosh i’m laughing so much–pls love me & don’t feel like you have to do this either!! (i wanted to tag more ppl but i’ll leav e it to everyone else to tag… more ppl!!)
TAGGED BY: nobody </3

THE MUN

Mun Age: 15 or under | 16+ | 18+ | 21+ | 25+ | 28+

!!!

How Many Blogs: 1    2    3    4    5+

this is extremely important… i only have ONE blog which means i’m pouring all my effort into this one place. i honestly don’t mind if someone has two blogs, but usually if i see more than that, i get skeptical about how swift one might lose muse for a specific blog. 

Type of Blog: Main | Secondary | Side

i only got one, so i would hope this is the case lmfao!

How Many Muses: Solo | Dual | Multi

this is extremely important! with only one blog and one muse, the aim is development but also to avoid any ruts. it’s stated in my rules but i won’t be shipping with anyone who has more than one muse on their blog.

Type of Ship: Single | Dual | Poly | Multi for each AU | Multi but Single for each AU

you would think i couldn’t highlight two of these. i am a single-shipper! however, with my muse having an interest in polyship, i would be willing to try it out and see how it works. i have seen one in the past and it looked beautiful. but yes, it’s potential hence why i italicized it. however, i lean more toward single-shipping since i’m familiar with it.

Type of Verse: Single | Multi Main | Multi AUs

my partner’s doesn’t need to be single-verse. i’m fine when they are multi-main or multi-au tbh BUT i do insist on being in their main verse, lol!

Activity: Sparse | Leisure | Weekly | Daily | Multiple Times A Day

okay, how is it that i can do all of these? i legit thought i was a leisure for the longest time but i’m actually a fast rper when i’m into a thread or muses interactions. often times, if my interest is piqued i can reply multiple times in a day but if not, then it will be at a daily pace. i italicized weekly because if a thread doesn’t hold my muse at the moment, it could take me a week to get around to it. in shipping, i would probably hope for the same enthusiasm from my partner and thus, seeing replies on a daily to multiple times a day basis. of course, i’m understanding when situations arise but if it’s just frequent lulls or you happen to be a weekly replier? it might be a little too excruciating for me.

Writing Length Preference: One-Liner | Para | Multi-Para | Novella | Match

yeah… pretty much i’m flexible on this and it depends on the scenario that is unfolding between the muses. i usually do match the other mun’s length but i don’t keep it my focus? it just happens most of the time. i did italicize one-liner because i wouldn’t be able to write a ship with only doing one-liners all the time. i enjoy getting in depth and really fleshing out the development with muses.

Thread Flow: Multiple Scenarios At Once | Sequential Story Line

i will always want progression and thus, i look for sequential threads. mostly focusing on one thread, completing the current ongoing plot or progressing it forward (if per se, they need to escape from some bad guys, i would ensure the thread finishes before posting a silly mundane thing in the askbox irrelevant to the ongoing thread unless if it was crack). of course, if there isn’t any driving plot or scene ongoing atm, multiple scenarios at once of a ‘Slice Of Life’ is p fun.

Planning Process: Plot | Pre - Established | Go With The Flow

okay, so i only plot where i feel it is necessary? for example combat, adventure, some compelling happening, disaster, etc… otherwise, i usually only like to set the scene and then have the muses take the reigns from there. often i won’t plot at all except for a starter post at the ‘greeting stages’. after that, my muse can often take the lead whether it’s by popping into someone’s askbox or shooting random starters.

Do You Write The Do: Smut | No Smut 

yes!! not even going to lie, i love to write smut where there is chemistry. not that i write it often (i haven’t for once written it on this blog). but i know for sure if i ship w/ someone, it’d be with someone who’d be up for writing it and is of age.

Genre: Slice Of Life | Fluff | AdventureActionAngst | Horror | Dark Themes | Crack

yes, all the things pls. i want a fully rounded ship with a lot of development, strife, stuggle, cute, sweltering hotness, give it all–and yes, i’m willing to write even the darker themes. this obviously just depends on the interactions between the muses and who the other muse may be? currently Gale is not some sadistic, evil muse so it wouldn’t really be him but he definitely has had moments of being not so kind.

Social Level: OOC Post | AskboxIM | Tag | Skype | Kik | LineTexting

let me elaborate. i want to communicate! i want to see the enthusiasm levels! and gosh, tagging me in things, making a tag for our ship, posting about our ship ooc, sending memes/prompts when applicable, sharing ideas through IM or just spamming each other when the other mun is online, sharing skypes to further just… talk all day and perhaps even sharing some mobile way of contact. i love using kik or line to pretend that the muses are texting one another (but i usually ensure that Gale received their phone number via rp first before i allow that). and just basically, being friends and being super comfortable and having a lot of endless fun!! and then breaking each other  c ause someone had to go do the a ng st. <3 LOL!

Extra: Unrequited | Love Triangles | Bromance | Crossover | Strictly Canon | Incest | Selfcest

so, i didn’t have a place to put these? but, yep. figured i should put them somewhere! i love unrequited ships so if your muse develops a crush on mine, go for it! also love triangles?! i never see these on tumblr tbh cause… it’s tricky business especially if you involve more than two muns, this may be even better suitable for muns who rp multi-muse blogs and coordinate it with one other mun who also has a multi-muse blog but… ah well! bromance is a yes and so are crossovers, though Gale is an OC… but, just basically meaning i’m willing to ship with a canon muse, too.

THE MUSE

NOTE (optional): cross out anything your muse prefers in a male, italicize anything your muse is prefers in a female, if fine with either simply bold it. also keep in mind that muses are ever-changing, especially through development and preferences can shift along with it if the mun wills it. if there is a preference not listed, add it in your additional words to keep the meme standard.

Current Status: Single & Not Looking | Single Ready To Mingle | Crushing | Dating | Married

Romantic Orientation: Panromantic | Polyromantic | Heteroromantic |
Homoromantic | Biromantic | Demiromantic | Aromantic

Sexual Orientation: Pansexual | Polysexual | Heterosexual |
Homosexual | Bisexual | Demisexual | Asexual

okay wow, a lot of you might be wondering why this? Gale doesn’t really know his sexual orientation. he only has done heterosexual so far and it would take a loooooot of encouragement for him to do that again, he really likes the fluff with girls though. thus, he is more curious than anything right now about his sexual orientation. there are further reasons behind this but do know that Gale does not officially know where he stands. he currently in rp, stated he wanted to try a polyship but judging Gale and how smitten he can get with someone, i don’t know if he could handle a polyship. and personally, as the mun, i don’t think i would have such a great time writing smut for a heteroship unfortunately; there’ll just be a hell of a lot more fluff if i did a heteroship.

Gender Preference: Male | Female | Bigender | Trans | Fluid | Agender | No Preference

Aesthetic Values: A-Cup | Addict | Athletic | Artsy | Biker | Cross-dressing | Culinary | Curvy | Dangerous | Drinks | Fantasy | Farmer | Hair | IS IT BIG | Legs | Loner | Muscular | Musician | Nerdy | Piercings | Popular | Power | Short | Slender | Smokes | Sporty | Street-Smart | Supernatural | Stylish | Tall | Tattoos | Teeth | Tech-Savvy | Traveler | Wealthy

AH GOSH OH GOSH THATS WAY TOO SWEET JESUS Q///___///Q Thank you so so much!! I’m not as great as you say I am really, I just adore seeing other people’s art, and fanart is even more wonderful for me, it’s absolutely amazing to think that people would spend their time drawing my characters, like it’s insane 8//m//8;;

And yeah I agree though, sometimes AUs or art styles really look like their creators!! Theres this amazing post where everyone kept reblogging a picture of themselves and one drawing they made, and you could only notice how similar they were *//__//* It was a fantastic post!! (Almost added mine, but… I changed my mind at the last minute. I’m too shy haha //nervous sweating)

@scarredlove

@turquoisegemglow

Aaaah thank you I’m glad you like it! <3 I honestly really really enjoy working on this comic. It makes me practise, I’ve never done comics so detailed before, or I stopped afer like 4 or 5 pages because it didn’t interest me anymore. (Gotta say, thanks to CQ who is my main inspiration to keep going right now! It’s really pleasant :D)

I am never going to give specific dates about the Ink comics updates, because I’m a student and work is more important than anything <3 Besides, I owe art and also want to draw my OCs more, I got a personal project started >//v//< <3 For now Update 3 has its storyboard done! Now I need to write the text in details. I gotta say it didn’t progress much for now, sorry! D: But hey, one more month and I’ll be free to work on it without any problem >://3c

(We’ll see if Ink makes it… oops did I say that loud)

@butterapplego

Aww I took a random theme and fucked up the code. ._.

LITERALLY THATS WHAT I DID

I’m not an expert at coding but I know the very very basics concerning it’s visual aspects, and coding is reaaaally relaxing to do. That’s why I change my dA page design from time to time. (actually I should change it again when I have the time, it’s getting a bit old D:)

Aaaah je suis ravie que tu aimes mon fiston <333 Et je t’en prie viens squatter, y’a encore de la place :DDD //pointe une des 9500 chaises (déjà bientôt les 10k AAAAAAAAAAAA)
