Gimme prompts!  
Hey, folks. Quick update to say that I'm heading on up to Cape Cod this afternoon for vacation and will return on August 11th. I don't anticipate too much LJ time up there, but I will check in occasionally. 

Last night I was bemoaning my muses departure to eowyn_315 and wanted to ask you guys for some prompts or pairings/scenarios you'd like to see me write. I have about 20 partially written stories (no lack of ideas!), but none of them really want to be written at the moment. So I need fresh inspiration! The only request I have is keep the scenario to something that can be accomplished in a one-shot. I crumble beneath the epic-plotty. 

Thanks, guys! I'll be back soon, one year older and hopefully with a deeper tan!  *waves*

I'd like to see Spike and Dawn (either pairing or friendship) in the aftermath of an apocalypse that the gang lost. Doesn't matter which one. Or maybe after a natural disaster or a man made disaster.

Oh, intersting idea. I'm such a fan of Spike/Dawn, too. Thanks for the suggestion. I'm already mulling over how I could go about it.

LOL. I love that question mark, as if you're saying, "Uh... is this too crack?" *hugs you*

The only difficulty with this is I've never written either character and I have a pretty poor grasp of how Connor talks. I don't actually own Season 3 or 4 of Angel, so I can't even reference it.

It does sound like it could be the grounds for a humorous encounter though. I'll have to give this one some thought.

Also, I was staring at your pretty animated icon of all your sketches. You know I love the Dawn, but I've never seen the Connor! He's stunning, hun. But who's the girl after Dawn? She looks so familiar, but I can't put my finger on it.

Thanks for contributing!

I don't really have a prompt because I'm boring and my head seems to be filled with anything but brain tissue at the moment. Its always like this - someone will offer an amazing opportunity to see a Spuffy dream of mine brought into life and what do you know - my mind goes blank. How typical of me to freeze at the crucial moment! *snorts* But, er, ok this is not so much of a prompt but me pestering for more, but I'd absolutely love to get all fired up over a new All Wrong -verse Spuffy fic. I'm such a sucker for post series Spuffy and I utterly adore your take on the subject. But like I said, this isn't really a plot bunny, so I should probably just shut up...lol.

I hope you'll have a lovely vacation and a happy birthday! :)

Oh, Jesus. God, I wish, wish, wish I could write you more of "All Wrong." I think, in many ways, that fic is one of my biggest failures and it breaks my heart to no end. I had it all plotted out, this really original, freaky, twisted post-NFA verse. I got two chapters in and I got so stuck on Ch. 3. It wouldn't budge. And the school year started, and I just kept getting pulled away from it.

I was actually thinking about that story a few days ago and considered trying to have another crack at it, but... long stories. I don't know how to sustain them. And I want to. So much. But they scare me. People get so invested in longer fics - they're the ones that are remembered, but somehow there's a disconnect for me.

But you know what... I'll try. I'll try to at least finish the mostly written Ch.3. It's not a shot like "Spectator Sport," but at least it will be in that 'verse.

Sorry for all the internal angst that is me on this post. What I really want to say is I hope you're doing well, that the back isn't giving you too much trouble, and that your spirits are high.

Sending good vibes your way,

Oh, I didn't mean to put any pressure on you! As much as I'd love to read anything All Wrong-verse related the least thing I want to do is to push you to write something that doesn't feel right. I'd be above and beyond exhilarated if there ever was to be a new All Wrong-verse chapter or one-shot, but only if it'll feel like an inspiring and satisfying thing for you to do. Besides, I'm sure that whatever it is you'll write next I'm going to love it, anyway. :)

And don't worry about the internal angst. We all have our angsty moments, and God knows I've showered your LJ with my internal, er, issues, lol.

Your banner is on it’s way, btw. It’s nothing like the one I posted at nekid_spike and I honestly have no idea if it’s anything you might consider usable, lol, but it’s coming and it has F/A with B/S and there are colors and even some text, yay, and oh my god, I’m so worried that you won’t like it. *head meets desk* Uh, but yeah, it's almost finished and I'll post it as soon as I get back from the hospital, if that's alright with you. It'll be a bit belated of a birthday present, but better later than never, right? *looks hopeful while fidgeting nervously*

And last but not least, my heartiest thanks for your kind and supportive words regarding my health. I really appreciate them. :)

Aw, I'm sure I'll really like it. I haven't seen any work of yours that I haven't liked yet.

As for future fics, I was looking at your futuristic Spuffy manip for awhile and started to formulate a kinda story in my mind. It's been a good, fresh way of coming up with inspiration - visuals! I was fiddling with some scene-setting stuff on the beach the other day, so who knows? Maybe something will even come of it! My travels to the Southwest in June also gave me some reference to start thinking about what desert existence might be like for Buffy and Spike.

Art inspiring art! Woo!
