Merry Christmas to all of you who celebrate! This fic is for one of my favourite people, [livejournal.com profile] reremouse - the super talented writer and all round awesome person!

Hello! Of late, I've been so very bad about posting and actually being around LJ but I am trying to fix that! :D And my first step back is to finally post about the completed Round Robin fic I participated in: Living Conditions.

It's an honour to have my name on a fic which is also written by some of my favourite authors: [livejournal.com profile] electricalgwen, [livejournal.com profile] reremouse and [livejournal.com profile] savoytruffle. This is a Round Robin fic where each author wrote two of the nine chapters and we all collaborated on the ninth. Post-series, Spike runs into Xander in London. Both have had changes in their circumstances. Low-key shagging and angst ensue.

I really love this fic and hope that you do too!

Title: Living Conditions
Author: Multiple authors: [livejournal.com profile] cordelianne, [livejournal.com profile] electricalgwen, [livejournal.com profile] savoytruffle and [livejournal.com profile] reremouse
Chapters: Parts 5 to 9/9 *COMPLETED*
Pairing: Spike/Xander
Rating: Mature
Warnings: Big questions, vagueness and sex talk. A Xander divided against itself trying to stand. Curtailed sex, reminiscences of evisceration, and destruction of furniture. Brooding, boorishness and the Olympic dream.
Notes: This is a round robin fic, with each chapter having been written by a different author. There are four authors and nine chapters total (we will write two chapters each and collaborate on the ninth).
Summary: A number of years post-Chosen/NFA, Spike pays Xander a visit. He finds a changed Xander, but Xander’s not the only one who’s changed. We blatantly ignore the comics.

You can find all chapters HERE in memories.

In which Xander's job is fraught with danger - but the perks aren't bad
cordelianne: (Buffy in Action)
For the last 2 years on Valentine’s Day, I’ve posted love letters to Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. Since I’ve now written to my beloved Buffyverse shows, I had initially thought maybe I’d write about one of my favourite cancelled shows like say Everwood, Gilmore Girls, My So-Called Life or Joan of Arcadia. Now these are shows I love, but you know what? I’m not feeling the inspiration to write about any of them. And I’ve realized why that is. Because I’ve re-discovering my passion for the Buffy fandom!

It all started when I randomly thought it would be a neat idea to adopt [livejournal.com profile] spring_with_xan. After deciding to act on this whim, it’s been a whirlwind of fannish fabulousness! I’ve been experiencing what makes us join fandom in the first place: fun, awesome and talented people coming together to celebrate their shared fannish passion. I think that sometimes when there’s things like wanks, or LJ policy changes, or even just not a lot of people posting fic on our flists, it’s hard to remember why we’re part of fandom. But negativity isn’t all there is! I’ve been overwhelmed by the generosity and kindness of fellow fans – it’s pretty awesome that there’s people who happily offer to create layouts and icons, give modding advice and even re-organize tags! It has me basking in fandom love!

And not just any fandom, my heart is still firmly planted in my one true fandom: the Buffyverse. Why the Buffyverse is my OT Fandom )
