Fic pimp!  
Hi, folks! My time on the road is nearly upon me. For the last week I've been practicing driving, buying clothing and camping equipment, researching attractions, accomodations and campsites, going to work, and betaing fic. And boy are my arms tired. I feel like I haven't had much rest this entire month. I've just been pinballing back and forth from one activity to the next - finals, moving, graduation, trip preparations and work. I'm really looking forward to a whole lot of nothing. We're tenatively set to depart on Sunday.

But, on to the real business. I've got some things to rec:

1. sevendeadlyfun just wrote a Spuffy, Spike/other piece entitled Enough for Now set immediately after "As You Were." It's a smart, insightful, hot and wonderfully characterized bit of porn. Seriously, that's when it's the best. Check it out. You won't regret it. 

2. eowyn_315and I have been working together on some long-standing fics of hers and she needs your help. She has three different stories and is looking for a little concrit and guidance to help her decide which seems to be the best story to persue further. Go on over and lend a helping hand by checking out the first chapters of all three of her Spuffy fics. 

Never Too Late to Be Alone ~ Alternate Season 3 fic (PG-13). Buffy is back in Sunnydale after a summer spent running away from herself. When Spike turns up with apocalyptic demons on his heels, it dredges up the past and throws the future into question.

Closure ~ Alternate Season 4 fic (R).  When Buffy finds herself assaulted after a Lowell House party with no memory of what happened, she turns to an unlikely ally to help put the pieces together and find the person who raped her. (BtVS season 4 - after "A New Man")

Tell Her This ~ AtS S:5 (NC-17). Having learned that Spike is alive, Buffy comes to L.A. to confront him, but the welcome she receives isn't at all what she expected. (AtS season 5 - sometime after "You're Welcome")

Thanks for the pimpage. So far it seems like the prevailing opinion is, "Write all three!" Which I totally wouldn't mind doing, except the reason I posted them was because I was stalled on all three, and was hoping comments might prod the muse into action. Not sure if we can jumpstart three fics at once. You'll probably come back from your trip and I won't have gotten farther than all the chapter 2s, lol.

My trip has been delayed until Wednesday because Gus needs to get the car serviced on Monday. I'll get to both chaps of "Closure" this weekend, like I said. With Patti on call, hopefully you can get past ch. 2. But if you can't, it's more than fine. It'll happen when it will happen.

Gus was over until past midnight last night as we looked at all out gear and tried to figure out how much we can get into his car. I'll be doing tons of research again today. And i'm relieved that we have a few extra days. I was majorly stressing.

I also am going to help herself_nyc move things in her apartment tomorrow. Haven't seen her since February.
