Switching gears here - I was watching the season finale of TVD (yes, AGAIN!) and I had a question. When Tyler and Caroline say goodbye before he "dies" is Klaus already in Tyler's body? Because at that point we've seen Klaus staked, and Rebekah is almost already back in Mystic Falls. And Tyler telling Caroline she'll have a "beautiful life" just sounds Klaus-y to me. Has this already been discussed? (Probably - I'm always late to the party :( )
As for my lack of fic writing you may be asking what the heck else are you doing with your time on the internet? Well whedonland is still consuming a lot of my time. I'm so sad this is the last round, and I've only been involved once before!! I just saw on my F-list that I missed submitting to a challenge that happened to be very time consuming. Pretty annoyed about that, but oh well. I'm also still up to my ears in fic I missed out on during my five years away from fandom. I also seem to be rereading a lot of stuff I read in the past, and that I've read in the last year of being back. Like The Secret of the Boy You Never Kissed by minxdelovely. Such a great story that I had to reread it when she started reposting it to her LJ. I also caught up on Yours, William and it's sequel My Elizabeth by thepuddinhead. Sad to see it come to an end, but really excited to see what she has in store for William and Buffy. Right now I'm also reading Some Cold Lovin', Las Vegas Style by Bloodshedbaby. Can't believe I haven't read all of BSB's work, but I definitely don't remember reading this before. I also have her story Stranded waiting in the wings for when I finish. As always I'd love some recs. I'm definitely forgetting to mention other fics I've read in the last month, but these are in the forefront of my mind. I really want to start rahirah's Barbverse, but I'm so intimidated by the size of it! Also on that list is The Unexpected Universe series, so hopefully I'll be getting around to those soon.
I want to get back into Out of Reach, and I've been working on a sequel to Lie to Me which is going to be very different from the first one. The problem is I have to many freaking plot bunnies running around in my head that it's hard to focus on just one at a time. I'm trying to write the sequel to Lie to Me in parts as they come to me which is something I haven't done before. We'll see how that works out, and hopefully I'll have something new to share soon!
Lastly, and WOW was that a long post!, I've started watching Veronica Mars. I'm only four episodes in, but I'm enjoying it and hopefully Soapnet lets me finish the entirety of the show before it goes off the air!
Okay that's it. How is everyone else's summer going? Eljay seems to be pretty dead lately so I hope you're all enjoying!
# Please tell me ya'll are watching True Blood? Last night's episode was just delightful. Thank heaven's for a season that so far has nothing to do with the most annoying love triangle EVUH. Plus, gay American vampire Steve Newlin AND Christopher Meloni as the head of the authoritay? JUST. DELIGHTFUL.
I'm no good at reaction posts, but I have high hopes for this season!!
# I have to
Apocalypse 11 finished last Saturday over at whedonland. It was my first time in a landcom and I had so much fun with all the challenges. My team - Team Angel won! And I came in 6th place on Team Angel and 10th overall.
Very excited for the next, and sadly last, Apocalypse to start next week.
My date for seasonal_spuffy is May 14th. I already have an idea for a fic so hopefully I'll get that going which will wake up my muse. Speaking of fic is anyone reading the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy? I'm at the beginning of the third book Fifty Shades Freed. The books are so hot, and I could easily see this being a Spuffy fanfic. I'm going to do a casting for the movie so keep on the lookout for that I'd love to hear your thought on my choices!
Hope everyone had a lovely Easter break (those who are fortunate enough to have one). It's going to be a bit hard getting back into the swing of things tomorrow...

Title: The Big Happy Ending
Pairing: Buffy/Spike (a hint of Fred/Wesley)
Summary: Fred observes. Set in Damage.
She’s more petite than Fred imagined, but that doesn’t take away from the power she exudes—and not just the power she wields over the two vampires about to join them. It’s power that tells she’s not a slayer but the Slayer.
As she paces, Fred wonders who she’s more nervous to see, Angel or Spike? Fred has her answer a moment later when they both enter the room.
Fred watches her cross the room. The Slayer’s eyes are wide, like she can’t believe what’s right in front of her. A strong hand reaches out, touches Spike’s solid chest, as their eyes finally connect. Fred watches the two embrace, the Slayer the first to latch on tight, like she’s afraid to let go.
Fred looks away when the moment becomes too private and finds Wesley’s eye. She gives him a watery smile, ever the fan of the big happy ending.
As for the 'please' part of this post - can any of you amazing artists on my F-list point me in the direction of some good brushes and/or tutorials. I'm using Paint Shop Pro.
'Please' part II - I have to write drabbles for whedonland, so if anyone wants to throw some prompts at me it'd be much appreciated. Joss-verse only please & prompts must be shippy.
I hope everyone on my F-list had a wonderful Valentine's Day, whether you're in a relationship or single. I, myself, am currently single, but had a great day with my family (my daddy is my valentine).
