Anniversary Graphics Post

Well, it's a little later than expected, due to LJ being a phenomenal bitca on the anniversary itself, followed by the last few hours of maintenance being carried out on the madcow cluster (pause for hysterical laughter and pointing), where my journal happens to be situated.

But here we have shareable graphics - icons for lj and web buttons to grace your website so you can send more unwary web-travellers into our clutches. ;o)

Donut Boy (S/X NC-17 Fractured Fairytale Ficathon)

Title: Donut Boy
Disclaimer: So not mine. Written purely for fun. No profit, no promises of literary value.
Rating: NC-17
Summary: A S/X tale wrapped around the framework of Cinderella.
Note: I was given mirasol's request in the Fractured Fairytale Ficathon, and she asked for Cinderella and "Willow and Buffy as the wicked sisters. Don't mind how OOC this story is. *g* I know you said you don't mind how OOC the characters become, but I wanted to keep them in character as much as I could.

I decided to take a page out of some of my favorite books, and wrap a S/X story around the Cinderella framework instead of writing in the fairy tale style. This is set between season 4 and 5 in an alternate reality where the Magic Box is already being run by Giles and Anya while Xander is still living in his parents' basement.

Since it's nearly 14,000 words long in ten chapters, here's the link without the spam:

Chapters 1-5
Chapters 6-10
It's just a jump to the left

Update: Late Night Double Feature Part 15: No More Monkeys

The latest update to my ongoing fic. Only two more chapters to go!

Title: Late Night Double Feature
Author: kimberly_a
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Spike/Xander (always)
Note: This is an exceedingly rambly, not very plotty, slightly kinky unrequited love fest of a sequel to the much plottier It's Just a Jump to the Left, and it won't make much sense if you haven't read that story first.

Putting on the Pimp hat again... and again...

No, it's not Spander, but it still looks like an interesting project, so here I am to tell you all to go and look at watchersdiaries:

WANTED: Writers who can compose a story set in the Joss-verse, but with original characters and in time periods other than the ones Joss & Co. have shown us.

At the Watcher's Diaries we ask the question, "What kind of slayer/vampire would you be?".
Good or Evil ? Pick a side, and tell us your story.

It should provide a few entertaining reads!


Now, it's that time of the week again - slashthedrabble's second challenge is due to be posted in a couple of hours and we'd love to see more fandoms represented. Go check out the memories to see what happened last week. :o)

What I'd like is to see this community pimped around other fandoms. I know many of you read and or write in other fandoms, so get pimping! Fanfic community journals are usually pretty good about allowing one-time pimps like that, but if you're not sure, email a mod and ask! The more fandoms we get represented the wider our appeal and the more slashy drabbles we get to see!

Urgent Beta request

My fall_for_sx day is tomorrow (Dec 3, could be day after tomorrow in some places I guess) and I only just finished my story and can someone beta it for me? Please? Pretty please? With sugar on top? And a cherry? It's Spander (duh) and takes place right after Lovers Walk Redux. You get to see the punishment ::tries to tempt you::
