Fic Rec  

I don't rec fics a lot. I honestly don't read enough anymore to do a whole hell of a lot of reccing. But, my God, this particular fic is literally the best I've read in ages. It's Bangel. Don't scoff. I know. Just hear me out.[info]trixiefirecra 's post-NFA tale of Buffy mourning Angel's death is so gut-wrenchingly angsty, I just about peed my pants. *loves* The scattered thoughts of Buffy's memory about her and about Angel make this piece such a whirlwind of reflection, you feel as though you're just scrambling to catch up with her next line of thought. It's a story of Buffy's final goodye and a passionate memory. Trixie writes Buffy and Angel the way I envision Buffy and Spike - raw, desperate, passionate, and manic in their need to just hold on a little longer. A unique style, a heartwrenching story, a fervant goodbye and, of course, some fucking hot sex. Heh, and a wee bit of cross-burning.

If you can manage to put the Bangel bias aside, take a look at For Him, While Dreaming. I thoroughly enjoyed it and am off to snoop around the rest of her journal.

Read this story on your rec.
It was electrifying writng...shocks sparking and pushing Buffy's memories and thoughts.

[I inserted thoughts of Spike because of my own preference.]

I'm glad you gave it a chance. There was a time when I refused to read Buffy/Angel, but then only_passenger came along and showed me that I could enjoy it when in the right hands. Good writing will captivate me no matter what the pairing, and that was some damn fine writing.

Oh yeah. I caught that fic from the su_herald list and just sat there for several minutes, staring at my screen, wondering if it was even worth it to get out of my chair. It crossed the line from angst right into heart-wrenching desperation for me. Wait, that sounds like I'm blasting it. I'm totally not! Anything that can reach down into my chest and wring my heart like a rag gets my undying loyalty!

I know what you mean. After reading it, you just feel drained and wonder "What the hell just happened?" Ahhh, so refreshing.
