It only seems random at first: Gen Mini Ficathon, Slayerstillness, 20in20 & Seasonal Spuffy (!!)

kwritten has started a  multi-fandom Gen Mini-Ficathon exchange to create safe space to emphasize friendships rather than romance in fanfiction. Contribute a banner or nominate five fandoms for round 1 you'd like to contribute fic for here; and be sure to check out the rules.

slayerstillness Challenge 41 "Motion" needs your help to break two tiebreakers . Including - dig this - a five-way.  (There's a salacious double entendre in there somewhere and if I weren't so muzzy-headed I'd be typing it right now.) Voting until Wednesday evening or until the ties are well and truly broken.  I love how the overall entry field has a very unified and of a piece feel to it, especially in the muted coloring and the lovely rose-apricot shades.

btvsats20in20 voting is open for two more days on Round 8; be sure to vote for Themes, Category and Artist's Choice sets. If you see a lot of missing icons and blank spaces when you go to vote please refresh your browser; apparently Livejournal is being more than a bit wonky right now. And finally...

seasonal_spuffy Go VOTE for your favorite banner for Round 18; then check out the schedule for this round. All days have been claimed but free for all days are just that if you didn't have a chance to sign up.  Many thanks to the mods rebcake and gillo for putting this round together.
NOT QUITE FULL DISCLOSURE: I may *ahem* have submitted a thing or two for consideration. I still can't believe I actually submitted something to seasonal_spuffy. No one is more shocked than I am, trust.

Excellent work pimping all of these great communities!
I voted.

Love your banner!
Hurrah and thank you for voting! (*insert standard damn but that was hard to vote complaint here*)

Aw, thank you sweetie! here's the rest of my wiffyish banners for the ficathon btw: http://multi-genfic.livejournal.com/632.html?thread=7288#t7288

I made a few more banners last night that I'll show off separately because I am really on a Wiffy groove right now.

Your icon reminds me how much I always kind of shipped Lily/Robin btw. :D

You know, it's because of your recent Wiffy kick, that I asked for a Buffy/Willow sibling fic in the new genfic_minis challenge. I feel like they totally qualify as found siblings.

I also ship Lily/Robin. :P They are so cute together.

*pumps fist into air* YESSSSSS!!!

Oh I apparently have not told you my head canon: that Willow is Buffy's metaphorical "little sister" in the early seasons and of course the "damsel", who is replaced by symbolically in some respects by Kendra and Faith then later literally and more importantly by Dawn.

So I've wondered, does any part of Willow's attempts to kill Dawn in S6 (she nearly kills her twice, once accidentally and once intentionally) stem from unconscious resentment towards Dawn for taking her place as "sister"?

Just a messy thought. I love the parallels between Buffy and Willow in Prophecy Girl and Buffy and Dawn in The Gift. (With Willow playing a key connecting role, as she does in Chosen. Not in blood alone but in bond.)

I also ship Lily/Robin. :P They are so cute together.

They were a giggle! Remember the ep where Robin pointed to her breasts as her own personal playbook (in contrast to Barney's) and Lily said "I'm reading them right now" with a big grin on her face.

Aly could say lines like that and it sounded cute, not vulgar. Not many people cab. It always seemed like Aly was more comfortable with playing with the bisexuality than Cobie was, even in outtakes, but Aly has such an innocence about herself too; she embodies Freud's "polymorphous perversity".
No, this is the first I'm hearing of your head canon. I absolutely agree that Willow is a metaphorical "little sister." You've definitely got potential for a meta here related to sibling rivalry/hatred, especially in terms of Willow and Dawn's relationship in Season 6.

I also like that you drew attention to the parallels between the two episodes. Nicely done.

Aly could say lines like that and it sounded cute, not vulgar.

Oh absolutely! I think that's a skill she learned during American Pie.

I'm sure I have notes for it in one of my (barely legible) notebooks, I just need a secretary/editor to whip the notes into shape *fantasizes*

Thank you so much, I'm glad you like that! I am ALL about the parallels and btvs is simply chock full of them. That's why I say, you can't watch the series piecemeal, or skip entire seasons like some do. Eventually you have GOT to watch it in it's entirety.

I think that's a skill she learned during American Pie.

I've not seen those films (not my usual cup of tea - or slice of pie) but are they worth seeing for at least a bit of harmless fun? Although the thought of using a pie for - nevermind.

I think they're worth seeing for the Aly parts.
It's definitely crude and gross humor though.
SO not my cup of jasmine. But one of the nifty things about Netflix? the fast-forward slider bar - very handy function, that.
I voted at seasonal spuffy and 20 in 20. I am so sorry I was too late to vote in slayer stillness. *feels horrible*
