Hello, hello! We are whiplashing the weather here - yesterday it was cloudy, drizzly, and *chilly* - today it's sunny, very warm, and a bit close. Who knows what tomorrow may bring!

Holiday weekend, in which we do nothing, yay! )

And, here's the other one. :) I had plans! They were going to reach Sunnydale and it was going to be right around the time of 'The Pack', and Xander was going to be still a little Hyena!Xander (i do so love him), and wanting a pack, and of course Spike can help with that, and things would...go along and...and....
And I forget. *sigh*. But I hope you'll enjoy, anway. Starts in China with the Boxers and the Chinese Slayer, which was so fun to write. Not beta'd, of course. Enjoy! These will both be up on AO3 later today.

Tientsin )

ETA: For a truly excellent bit of Supernatural finale meta/review, go to blackcat333_99's LJ. Love it!

At last, part two!
And it goes up unbeta'd. But - corrections will be made as soon as it's not nearly one a.m. on a 'school night'.

I have an amazing time writing these boys and this 'verse - so glad to have dipped a toe back in! Thanks, everyone, for coming along. :)

Part One

Author's Notes: I could not have done this without the excellent resources of this timeline at the The Firefly and Serenity Database. Also, the now defunct but Wayback-able FireflyWiki Timeline, and the FireflyWiki Cortex Lexicon. There's also the List of Firefly Planets and Moons.

Chinese translations are from this marvelous site. I don't intend for The Academy to equal the Initiative, but the comparison is a fair one, i'd say.

ETA: Now with the fabulous beta stylings of [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens!

Hiya! Today was my posting day at [livejournal.com profile] rekindlespangel, and this is my offering. Feel free to comment here or there.

Set in the Firefly 'verse, this fic takes Spike - and Angel - from leaving Earth-that-was to halfway through the terraforming of the 34 Tauri system.

Beta'd by the frabulous [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens, of course. Author notes and resources to follow in part two. Title from Like a Rolling Stone by Bob Dylan.

These are translated to the best of my and the 'net's ability. Any corrections welcomed.
Fùyīncáo - I'm in hell
Càodàn - Fuck
Wángbādàn - Bastard
Gāisǐ - Damn it

With No Direction Home )

Part Two.

First, a belated but nonetheless heartfelt greeting to [livejournal.com profile] sweptawaybayou. Many happy returns of the day! Luff ya, bb. :)

Second - Show! Wheeeee! I had such a blast watching. Watched again with [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens and it was just as awesome the second time around.

Cut for episode spoilers )

In other news...we got snow! It lasted about three days, heh. Now the yard is a glorious mud hole that Annalee the gog delights in plowing around in. Even though it's been below freezing most nights and some days, the moles are apparently still active and she goes nuts trying to dig them up. Freakin' moles.

I have decided that 2012 shall be the year of finishing the stuff in the WIP folder! After i post my [livejournal.com profile] rekindlespangel fic on the 21st. So hopefully, more fic from me this year! I'm also contemplating signing up for the [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang this year. I just need to be totally sure i have a story that will fulfill the word count minimum.

Hope the new year is treating you all well - be safe, have fun! Oh and - anyone out there watching Pan Am?


ETA: Via a comment by [personal profile] darkhavens site="livejournal.com">....
I NEED that drunk 'remember when...?' episode. Or possibly fic. It would be an AWESOME comment fic meme thing: Reply to this post with a 'remember when...?' about Bobby, as recounted by a drunk Dean, Sam or Jodi. *g*

I TOTALLY AGREE! I shall start!!

At last, at last! Wow, this took too long. But it's done! Yay! I *still* think it's a little odd, but it is what it is. :)

All for you, Snow - 'cause i adore you and luff you and, you know, all that.

Thank you thank you, [livejournal.com profile] darkhavens for the once-over. You rock!

As some of you know, the 14th was [livejournal.com profile] sweptawaybayou's birthday. Yay! And some of us got together and made [livejournal.com profile] its_snow_day - a comm *just for Snow*! 'Cause we luff her and she deserves it.

Anyway, I posted a bit of Spike/Angel fic over there, and am planning on adding more to it. So I thought i'd re-post it *here*. Mainly 'cause i'm just...weird. I wanna have *my* stuff in *my* journal, even though this fic is *all* about Snow.


Anyway. Here t'is. The title is from the poem by Robert Graves, Two Fusiliers.

Well, we've been lucky devils both, And there's no need of pledge or oath To bind our lovely friendship fast, By firmer stuff, close bound enough... )

Part two.

A few days ago, [livejournal.com profile] sweptawaybayou answered a [livejournal.com profile] slashthedrabble challenge, number 85, 'David Bowie Song Titles'. Snow picked Sex and the Church... As if *anyone* was suprised. Heeee.

She wrote Redeeming Spiritual Qualities from Angel's POV and then challenged *me* to write it from Spike's POV. So, i did.

'Cause she roxors, that's why.

Perdition to Arcadia )

*i almost titled this et in arcadia ego but that was too pretentious, even for me*
