Happy 10/10/10

Well a special day, and a poll. I know my flist is quite Spikecentric, but it is also Spangel centric as well, which may balance off some of the Spuffiness, so who should Buffy end up with (if anyone)?

Poll #1629866 Buffy should end up with

Who should be Buffy's long term partner

A reformed Parker
A contrite Robin Woods who realises she was right all along
Someone else in her life
Someone else she has yet to meet
Buffy will remain single her whole life, never settling down
Oops we should go

Pin Down A Muse

Sorry to post another poll, but in an effort to inspire myself I've been going through my own tags, and rereading previous work and feedback. Now I have a few elusive bunnies runing through my head which want to be either a drabble or ficlet. Help me pin it down.

Poll #1570443 Pin the Muse!

Which One Should I Concentrate on

Willow finding Buffy/Giles fanfiction
Sam finding Dean/Castiel fanfiction
Tosh finding Owen/Ianto fanfiction
Hardison finding Hardison/Eliot fanfiction
Them finding fanfiction but another pairing
None of them

If you picked another pairing who, and what pairing?

If you have an idea for Ats or Dr Who, please feel free to tell me what that is.

Edit. Not doing another post, but I know a few of you are into tattoos so

Buffy's most controversial decision.

Sorry, another poll, but this time for my BtVS friends. This has been bothering me all day so I'm opening it up to my friends list, but what to you think was Buffy's worse or most controversial decision? Jumping of the building and dying in The Gift? Activating 1,800 slayers in Chosen? Something else?

Poll #1508632 Buffy's worst/most controversial decision

Buffy's most dubious decision was?

I would prefer not to have Season Eight in the poll, and just keep it to the TV series, as it seems rife with bad decisions.

Buffy Poll

I see Buffy is in the daily poll as physically bad arse today at IMDb, if you haven't seen it, and want to vote the link is here

So, maybe being British, I don't really understand what Americans mean by "bad arse", but I would think she was strong, with the challenges he faced from being a slayer and what she experienced in her youth. By Season Seven she was able to stand up for herself, her principals, and her own ideals of right and wrong. In my mind she was a self actuated woman by that time, making her own way in the world, and using her experiences to make up her own mind (one of the things I don't like about Season Eight comics was that she seemed to regress).

So what about everyone else. There aren't, I don't think, any Buffy bashing answers. Just what did you think about Buffy over all, and the person she matured into.

Poll #1503628 Was Buffy Bad Arse physically?

Buffy was

Bad Arse physically
Kicked Demon arse, but not human
Too weak with humans
Too compassionate to be a true bad arse
Too influnced by the people around her to be true bad arse
The prefect slayer. Strong and tough when she needed to be, but with compassion
passenger Sam

Spring has Sprung.

Lovely day today. Sunny, warm sight breeze, people out doing the gardening. It might even feel like a summer day, were it not for the lovely Spring flowers in bloom. A day that puts a smile on your face.


Well Alpha Male Madness are down to the final two, Sam and Dean Wincester. Dean is of course winning but I kind of liked this comment

"I really like both these guys but Sam gets my vote. Dean ended up torturing people and enjoying it and crumbling under the torture, so he loses some alpha male points. Sorry Dean i'm voting for Sammy. He's been using his abilities he hates for the greater good and that's sacrifice. I have no doubt lots of fans will vote on who they 'fancy' I am voting on strength this season as a male fan"

See there are male fans of the show, it is not all females. The show does have more than pretty boys, even if that helps a lot.

If you do want to vote, go here

Dean is winning at present, but then Dean seems to win at all these type of things!


On the subject of voting, March Madness at Buffyfest is also down to the final two. It is between Spike and Buffy, so if you want to vote there go here you do not need to register to vote they take anon votes a well.

Thanks to sueworld2003 for the heads up.

Fandom, sometimes you suck!

I do tend to stay away from fandom boards, usually for a very good reason, in that they annoy me to death with bias. I of course hear things that are going on, and just makes me happy that I stick to my lj flist. Where the the people are more balanced, and sane!

I have heard two things recently that have me throwing my hands up in dispair.

One is that Season Seven of Buffy was too Spike-centric. The other is that the next episode of Supernatural (I haven't even seen the clip), is too Sam-centric!

For gawds sake. Spike as a recurring character, he just got a soul. As usual, it was Buffy-centric. She was in just about every scene. Which, yes she is the title character, and should get a good story arc, but when you take that souled Angel had his own series, and Spike was going through and interesting story arc in just getting a soul, meant that that was one of the best bits about Season Seven. Far better than the rather boring season arc of The First and The Potentials. Or Andrew taking over from Xander. If any of the four core characters was underplayed it was Xander. Then NB had his own problems that season, which might be why Andrew pretty much replaced him, not Spike!

Now after who can count how many Dean centric episodes there have been this season of Supernatural, one of the two major characters (yes there is only two, that non entity of an Angel Castiel is NOT a major character) MIGHT get a half decent episode, we haven't seen it yet, so dont know what will happen in the episode, and people start complaining.

Sam's story line in interesting, he is the reason Dean was brought out of Hell, even if the damn Angel was the one who went and dragged him back. We have to know what is happening with Sam, and it's about time it was explained to us, that cannot be done without Sam getting a nice chunk of episode time, it is part of the major arc of Supernatural since the programme began.

Ok I am a Spike and Sam fan, but their arcs should get air time, without people complaining about it. They are in the damn shows, and both of them very interesting, and needing an explaination at to what is going on with them both.

Spike was always short changed on Buffy, and now I really don't want Sam short changed as well. Especially when there are only two major characters in the show!

Edit While on the subject of fandom rants, Chris Ryall has published a preview of an upcoming cover for the Angel series in IDW here

Could someone who can post a comment at his blog tell him how to spell DRUSILLA, please!

A nice person has! :-)

Well I went to writerconuk last year, and speakr2customrs gave us a talk on the art of writing drabbles. The secret is in the final sentence. So imagin my delight when I got this comment today from ayceey "I always like your final sentences, they're always good! :)". See if you got to the convention, you might learn something too!
