More rec lists on Buffyverse Top 5 - but time is running out, alas!





I'd been promising myself I'd do a rec list of Top 5 stories by clockwork_hart1 - and ended up doing two (here and here). Some fics were easy choices because they are so dear to my heart, to how I approach the Buffyverse and feel about the characters; or aren't anything like I normally read but are wonderfully sexy, or disturbing. Which meant some hard choices still had to be made. *sniffle*

Last week I'd hoped that more people would post lists and y'all have done so, in a big way: in all genres and media (fic, video, meta, artwork), and from all "niches" of this fandom. This round has been wonderfully diverse and really taken the idea of "celebrating the love" to it's fullest extent I think. There's so much love there and so much to love. And why not? Isn't the Buffyverse, at it's core, about love in all it's aspects?

There's only one drawback: it ends on Sunday, January 19th, at 6pm EST (US/North America.) Not a lot of time left. (Don't say I didn't warn you, ok?) I have at least two, maybe three (?) meta rec lists I want to put up, and I'm away from the computer on weekends. Which means I have to get it all done TOMORROW.

I don't suppose, dearest mods *flutters eyelashes winsomely in yourlibrarian's direction* that I could request an extension this round? Because, goodness, it's going so beautifully don't you think?
(What bribery would you accept here: cookies? Soft words and flattering phrases? Kittens?)

petzipellepingo for included one of my own posts from last year, "Our Mother/Her Mother/Our Self (Buffy, Joyce, Dawn)" in their list of Top 5 Picspam Collections on Tuesday. I was not expecting that at all. It never would have occured to me that post would make a Top 5 list, especially considering all the wonderful, sophisticated picspam art there is out there to chose from. I'm very happy that it communicated my love for the women in the 'verse in a way that strikes a chord with others.You've honored me more than you know.
THANK YOU.

And thank you so much to the wonderful folks on my flist, to everyone for your feedback and gifts, especially these past two weeks.
My cup literally overfloweth, and I don't know how to begin to show my appreciation. But I'll do my level best to do so next week.
(Hint:There will be icons!)
Yes, please do! You've such a wider range of acquaintance (and more adventuresome tastes) than I do, and that's always appreciated.

Do you have a particular theme in mind? Personally I could still do several lists of just random "I happened to like this stuff". Or an icon rec list.
I just posted another list. :)

*squish*

Thanks for your posts of encouragement. They really help motivate me to celebrate fandom more. :)
YAY!



I just left a comment there. Gabrielle definitely deserves her own rec list!

And it's my pleasure to write these posts - pimping my own pimpage, and hoping other people will play along. I'm happy to hear that it's working. Ulterior motives FTW! I participated last year but I was very very new to fandom a year ago so this year it's a lot more fun for me.

*HEE*
That's #10 and Martha isn't it?

For a moment I thought it was a 1940's movie gif - I LOVE BLACK AND WHITE FILM!

Because really, who doesn't want a hug from Judy Garland? And you certainly deserve one.

When have I ever seen a Judy Garland gif? Never, that's when! Yet another reason why you are awesome, sweetie.

I watched Meet Me in St Louis a year or two ago for the first time since I was a little girl - not entirely to my tastes anymore but I liked the dramatic, dark scenes the best and OH MY was Judy fabulous, just wonderful in those sequences.

And I'm always up for hugs!
Re: Can't currently find my Buffy gifs so I return your hug with Doctor Who!
Yep! It is 10 and Martha Jones.

I have a steady supply of Martha gifs after last year's Fandom March Madness. She made it to the final 4 last year, but was beaten out by Joan Watson (Elementary.)
Re: Can't currently find my Buffy gifs so I return your hug with Doctor Who!
I have NO idea what any of that means but it sounds like fun! btvs is my only fandom so I'd be awful at that no doubt. (Is it like the Fug Girls March Madness? I haven't paid attention to that in years but it was sort of fun for a while.)

The Fandom March Madness community is here:

This is the post that explains the 2013 round:

http://f-march-madness.livejournal.com/11074.html#comments

Essentially, it mimics a basketball tournament. It starts with prelim voting on the following entertainment categories- Teen, Drama, Comedy, and Sci Fi/Fantasy). From the TV Shows, a character is voted on to represent said show and then total madness and fun ensues as fans run massive gif campaigns to support their character. It's surprisingly addicting and it's always fun to see the way people support their fandoms.

In previous rounds, Buffy/Angel was part of the madness, but the new mods have decided on new eligibility critieria, i.e. Fandoms eligible for the competition are TELEVISION SHOWS which aired their last episode within TWO YEARS PRIOR to the competition or FILM FRANCHISES where the last film in the franchise was released within TWO YEARS to the competition.

"Eligibility criteria"? *snorts* Who needs that? (party poopers)

I kid, I kid - it sounds like a lot of fun! (The Fug Girls MM is the same deal with charts and all that.) Just not something I could participate in due to my total lack of familiarity with almost anything.
