I'm enjoying my precious moments of freedom and I'm sitting here at dad's, in silence and I'm having trouble about what I should do. I should probably study. But the most important file I have at my computer at mom's so... I guess that has to wait till Monday. Does anyone else have pre-working angst? I'm going to work tomorrow for a few hours and I'm literary going 'wtf where you thinking when you took this job?'. But once I start working, it feels fine.

I saw a Buffy episode today!!! Seriously, I miss this show like a long-lost sibling. I saw The Replacement and I think that's sort of lovely on so many levels. How Xander's feeling of being misplaced in his own life is paralleled with Riley and Buffy's relationship where Riley definitely knows that they are not in the same place. *sniff* I almost want to have a marathon, but the thing is that you then run into an episode that you think is sort of semi-good and then you sort of give up the project entirely. ... Or maybe that's just me.

If anyone has any superduper good fan fics or something like that, hand them over :) Doesn't necessarily have to be a shipper fic, but just anything. Hand it over, I'd love to read it. *misses fandom*

I've always loved this one-sided Faith/Buffy piece by Mad Poetess:

I know I used to have so many amazing Buffy stories saved, and now I can't find any. :/

All I can find is:

Because Even the Impending Apocalypse Doesn't Stop the Rituals of High School ( by [ profile] allyndra. A look into Xander's senior year yearbook, right before graduation.

And a small collection of Angel stories.

Any Buffyverse fic is more than welcome :D Thank you so much for the link, I'll check it out :D I know there are some epic Buffy fics out there. I hope they haven't disappeared.

Angel fic!

For a silly, fun read, check out Intervention with the Vampire ( by [ profile] littera_abactor. It is gen, around season 2-3ish.

The rest of the stuff I have is a bit darker.

There is Happy Ever After ( by Rheanna. Which is a sort of dark, short AU fairytale? Sort of? It is difficult to explain. It is pretty brilliant though. I remember this being the first Angel fic I really feel in love with. And I just reread the story and found I still enjoy it. :)

Really, anything by Rheanna because she has seriously engrossing stories. In the Waiting ( is also excellent. And it has outsider perspective!

Rheanna has two fics co-authored with Yahtzee. Both are long and satisfying.

If you haven't read Yahtzee ( yet, go now. She is my favorite Buffyverse author. I particularly love As Time Goes By ( (and not just because Casablanca is one of my two favorite movies ever) and The Uninvited Guest (

And, finally, the fic that is my favorite out of all the Buffyverse fics I've read. It is honestly one of my favorite fics ever. Another Life ( by inamorata. It is an extremely dark, very AU Angel/Cordy fic. It takes the Birthday AU and goes AU off of that. Which sounds crazy but really works. I tend to avoid prostitution stories and so almost missed this one, but decided to give it a shot since it came so highly recommended. And I'm SO glad I gave it a chance since I would have missed what is seriously incredible storytelling. I don't know how you feel about Angel/Cordy, dark fic, or these themes but if you don't mind them than this is a great (longish) read.

Hopefully you can find something in here that you enjoy. Have fun reading. :)

I know the feeling! Sometimes I have weekends when I spend almost all of my time at work, I'm basically just at home to sleep and eat breakfast. The "Why do I do this to myself?" feeling always comes up before but when I'm actually working it feels fine, most of the time it's even fun.
