Pimp and Poll  

Last nights Spuffy posts were really strong, so I'm going to put on the rec hat again, and suggest a fic that is very near and dear to me. In All the World by only_passengeris an enthralling, heart-wrenching look at an isolated, cocky, Wish-verse-esque AU Buffy, and an utterly evil Spike gunning for his next Slayer. She is a beautiful writer, and spins a tale of longing, passion, and intrigue. A link to all previous chaps are listed in her post. Head on over and give her some love. You won't be disappointed. 

And, since I'm thinking of adding more links and such to my page, I was wondering if ya'll would be interested in a "Cat's Recs" page. I'm only going to do it if people are interested, so let me know!

Poll #xxxx Got Recs?
Open to: all, results viewable to: all

Do you want to see what I've read and enjoyed?

Yes! Give me dirtybadwrong fics!
Whatev. I can find my own way, thanks.

What fics are you looking for?

Spuffy only. Are you insane?
Spuffy and other het pairings. Who doesn't like variety?
I swing both ways! Gimme slash, het, and everything in-between!

Hey, CoC, Didn't do the poll because I'm one of those "maybe" "it depends" "all of the above" "none of the above" "do what?" kind of people. LOL Having said that, I'd be delighted to see you rec any fics that you've read and enjoyed. A little blurb of info about the fics would be good, too. Because I am so lazy my time is so valuable, that I don't want to use any of it by going to fics that I would have known weren't my cuppa if I'd had more info about them up front. (ie: high school junior Buffy Giles meets bad boy Spike Angel and is abducted into slavery where she is forced to have sex with everybody in the senior class)
ClawofCat: lorne_bookclawofcat on July 26th, 2007 04:04 pm (UTC)
LMAO. Hm, don't think you'll be seeing any high school, All-Human, slavery, or all of the above in one fic recc'd here. No worries!

Yeah, I was thinking I'll do an "oldies" rec post and a "new fics" post. I find that some of my fav fics are 2-3 years old, and I come back to again and again. Alas, I don't get to do as much reading now as I used to since I started writing.
slaymesoftlyslaymesoftly on July 26th, 2007 08:04 pm (UTC)
Yeah, writing can put a big dent in your reading - both on and off line. *glares at large pile of books on nightstand*

Your poll doesn't work, but I'd love to see your recs. And my vote is for Spuffy only, but I don't think you're too insane. LOL
ClawofCat: headdeskclawofcat on July 26th, 2007 06:17 pm (UTC)
What the fuck!? I just tried fixing it, and it refuses to validate the "Submit Poll" part. Argh! Stupid LJ. Help?

And your desire for Spuffy recs is duly noted, lol. I'm calm...

The poll doesn't work for me either. Look, it doesn't have a number. "Poll #xxxx". You can't edit a poll as far as I know you've to do a new one.

Poll #xxxx Got Recs?

Do you want to see what I've read and enjoyed?

Yes! Give me dirtybadwrong fics!

What fics are you looking for?

Spuffy only. Are you insane?

I don't have time to read other pairings even if I read them if I have time; so I'll vote for Spuffy only for me :)

Though... I love Wuffy too or Spike/BUffy/William.
ClawofCat: scowlclawofcat on July 26th, 2007 06:56 pm (UTC)
Do you happen to know how to add a poll #? I just tried making another version, and it keeps coming up with xxxx every time. I don't see a tab to enter a # or where one automatically shows up when you actually create the information. This is so annoying.
Cordykitten: awmp thinkingcordykitten on July 26th, 2007 07:32 pm (UTC)

I used the link above to create this see here at my LJ

I filled it out and hit sent; that posted it (new entry). The whole coding changed to < * lj - poll - 1028318 * >. I could re-post this code into a new entry. And the "code" doesn't function in a review it seems.

I don't know what your problem is... There is only one known issue:
If you are using Internet Explorer, you cannot post polls using the poll creator while the Rich Text editor is your default editor. You can click the 'LiveJournal poll' button to use the Rich Text poll wizard, or change your settings to "plain text" or "whatever I last used" in order to use the poll creator
Tell me again what isn't working.
ClawofCatclawofcat on July 26th, 2007 08:06 pm (UTC)
Oooooh. Yeah, I use Internet Explorer. And I think I am in Rich Text function. I'm not sure how to change it to Plain Text, and I can't really play with it since I'm at work. Ah well. Looks like I'm just going to have a dud poll. Maybe I can figure out how to get it to work later in the evening. *huffs* I hate you, Int. Exp.

Thanks so much for taking the time to experiment and clue my dumb self in, Cordy! *hugs* I suck.
Cordykitten: noaluvjames snowkisscordykitten on July 26th, 2007 08:42 pm (UTC)

Ah then you're an of LJ.
When you go to http://www.livejournal.com/update.bml
there are two tags: Rich-Text | HTML
for me.
If you change it to HTML and click "Eine Umfrage erstellen" (create poll for you I guess), maybe that will function.
I don't know what 'plain text' is (the FAQ are German for me). Maybe they mean html? You could try that if you have time.
And you're welcome. I can delete my entry now, huh? It's been a long time I made it so I had to try to see how it functions.

i cannot do the poll. i am unable to submit.

but. i love recs. and if it's well-written, i like a variety of pairings, het and slash.

i am happy to inform you of all this FROM MY HOME.

yes. you heard me. i have obtained my internets crack. i will never sleep again.

you are v. cool for pimping me and the fic. *smooch*
ClawofCat: omfgclawofcat on July 27th, 2007 02:37 am (UTC)
Yeah, my busted poll is just a testament to my inability to work technology. Cordy tried to fix the prob, but I got frustrated and just gave up. I'll do recs how I see fit, and that's that.

And, oh my gah! *head asplodes* S gots the internet! Wee! You know this means I'm totally pestering you all the time, right?

Oh, when I saw you had posted IATW last night I screamed at Eowyn to go read it, which she did since she was following the story before. She's not on LJ, so she wanted me to tell you she loved it, and to just drop Faith/Giles cause she wants to see how this one ends. Hee, I think you'd like her. I heart her like whoa. She's also a great writer and the best beta evah!

And since you are hooked up now, please post your fic at Bloodshedverse and come hang with us. I want to show you off to all my friends! I think your fics would get a great reception there. It's a great archive for darker and angsty fics, and there are some incredibly insightful reviewers there.

*dances for joy* I think I need to sit down before I over-exert myself.
shawty got flava like a peach lifesaveronly_passenger on July 27th, 2007 02:58 am (UTC)
your use of the word asplodes is the epitomy of adorable.

sometimes (though not lately) i spy on all you bloodshedverse folk. yesiree. i will come over there sometime soon, if not tonight.

i'm shy.

Spuffy fic recs yay!!
ClawofCat: freepornclawofcat on July 27th, 2007 01:23 pm (UTC)
Heh, I'll start putting together some top fics in the next few days. I imagine a lot of them will look familiar since my flist is very dedicated to the pairing. But maybe I can surprise ya with a new one.

And maybe I can even persuade some of you to peek at some non-Spuffy stories. There is some incredible talent out there. Does my little fandom heart proud.

Came late but here goes...

Poll #xxxx Got Recs?

Do you want to see what I've read and enjoyed?
Yes! Give me dirtybadwrong fics!

What fics are you looking for?
Spuffy only. Are you insane?

It is always worthwhile to find an undiscovered prize or a reminder of a old treasure. Would appreciate.

ClawofCatclawofcat on August 19th, 2007 05:48 pm (UTC)
I'll try to have a link up in the next few weeks. I was going through my lists and realized it's going to take awhile to write all the summaries!
