[sticky post] Welcome Post

Welcome to the SB Ashtray! A sister community to sb_fag_ends, we are here to provide a venue for anything you might ever have wanted to produce for that comm, but couldn't - whether it was because you didn't finish within the prompt month, because your prompt response got too long, or whether it didn't quite hit the Spuffy brief of that other comm.

Here there are no such restrictions - but you must respond to a prompt that once existed on sb_fag_ends. We've been going since August 2010, so hopefully you will be spoilt for choice!

To get started, feel free to browse our GoogleDocs Spreadsheet o' Prompts, or else check out the featured prompts tag, which will take you to the mod posts which highlight various prompts that have happened in the past. On Fag Ends, you can investigate the original posts under the prompts tag and the monthly theme tag.

Better late than never?

Found these two little characters and couldn't remember where I got the prompt(s) above them, so I posted them on my journal yesterday. Turns out, they were sb_fag_ends prompts from quite a while ago. Too late to post it there, but not for this community. I give you: "If only Spike had caught Buffy's eye in that club". (now, TBH, I suspect the prompt was meant for the scene in "The Girl in Question" rather than way back in season 2 in the Bronze. But my first thought was when he stalked her in the Bronze, so there you go.)

I don't know that I've done an ashtray post before - not for a long time, anyway. No idea what I'm supposed to put in the tags, if anything. ETA - thank you whichever mod did thi for me! Will try to make a note of it for future reference. :)

Fic: Palimpsest - Epilogue

Prompt: I don't believe in this stuff anyway... (Sept 2014).
Title:  Palimpsest (Epilogue)
Rating: R
Setting: Post-series AU (could be mid-S9)
Warnings: Grab your tissues.  At least - I hope you need them!  :)
A/N: I wrote this a year ago in preparation for the next round of Seasonal Spuffy... but Seasonal Spuffy has gone on hiatus.  Meanwhile, S10 keeps getting more and more Scooby-friendship friendly, unlike S9.  This is much closer to S9's mood.
A/N2: Written to go off-canon sometime mid-S9, but also written so that comic knowledge is mostly unnecessary (except for a few small jokes).
A/N3: Thanks to foxstarreh and margueritedaisy for beta work, and foxstarreh for being my S9 encyclopedia so that I didn't have to actually buy or read the comics.  :)

PART ONE, PART TWO, PART THREE, and PART FOUR


Palimpsest:  1)  A parchment or the like from which the writing has been partially or completely erased and replaced with new writing.  2)  Something that has been changed over time and shows evidence of that change.  (Merriam-Webster Online)

Good Work Team (Spike, PG13)

Title Good Work Team
Pairing Spike/Buffy
Rating PG13
Words 2700
Setting late season 5
Warnings This is the anti-Spuffy canon. Everything you loved about Intervention onwards, seen through a warped lens. Please don’t be surprised.
Prompt this never was a fag ends prompt, but it’s inspired by a round a long time ago called What If. It made me think, eventually. What if Out Of My Mind never happened? What if Spike didn’t love (or didn’t realise he loved) Buffy? Hence crossposting here, before being run out of Spuffy fandom on a rail.

Drabble: Office Party

So I saw the prompt "The best is yet to come", and my poor overheated brain misread it a bit, and, well... this drabble came out before I could stop it. I really do apologize.

Title: Office Party
Author: Beer Good (beer_good_foamy)
Word count: 100
Fandom: Buffyverse, all 12 seasons
Pairings: Um... a few, none of them remotely canon
Rating: R

Somehow the Big Bad conference always ended like thisCollapse )
Well, I was convinced I had to try and write something, because it's been too long! And so I started with this week's Fag Ends prompts, Land Rover and A Sudden Sandstorm, but then I got to a thousand words and it was a thing that needed more words. It is still a thing that is a thing that I don't know what it is. But there is Buffy, there is desert, there is dreams, and there is Spike who could be any number of phantasms. It's all pretty vintage and I hope you get something out of it! Oh yeah, and don't ask me the reason why in this AU Buffy and co. didn't vanish to Europe less than three weeks after the Hellmouth closed. I'm going to plead that such logistical nightmares take more time? Natch post-Chosen.

Sunstroke
by Quinara.

It was about the time the sandstorm blew up that Buffy agreed the Land Rover had been a good idea. She’d been hearing Spike’s voice – Fuck the ritual; first rule you’d ever tell me is keep yourself alive – and she’d listened, begrudgingly, though there had been sixteen long days to prove he couldn’t even follow her advice himself. And that put her here, more than halfway to Vegas, a little life shy of Death Valley – but safe inside a sealed and cushioned monument to human engineering.

A hundred degrees were beating down the door, but behind the dull grey world of her sunglasses she had four bottles of water and snacks and the wheezing kiss of aircon. She was alive.

The plan had been to find some answers, but she’d only just turned off the interstate when the Mojave had come to her.Collapse )
