August Week Three

B Sides are a bit of an outdated concept these days, but Depeche Mode have had some great ones!

However, this is besides the point. These songs are only your guide to Spuffyness!

1. Sea of Sin
2. Flexible
3. In Your Memory
4. (Set Me Free) Remotivate Me
5. Now This Is Fun

Tunes under the cut for the interestedCollapse )


Another drabble set in the same time and spirit as the last one, kind of a sequel. The wonderful DM lyrics didn't leave me any chance not to write this...and I wish I had more time to do the other ones as well.

Unbeta-ed, I hope there are no glaring mistakes or terrible weirdnesses (otherwise don't hesitate to tell me so I can correct!).

Also, whoever nominated 'see me feel me/touch me heal me' ( http://sb-fag-ends.livejournal.com/493073.html ) at the wicked_awards - thank you so, so much! I was stunned into a very unflattery look of my mouth hanging open for a long while!

So, here goes:

Title: Dangerous
Creator: freecat15
Prompt:  5. Dangerous
              The way you leave me wanting more
              That’s what I want you for
              When I am in you arms
              No, I won’t come to harm
              - Dangerous
Setting: BtVS s6, around DMP
Rating: PG15
Length: 100 words (plus title)

August Week Two

How about some nice Depeche Mode lyrics?

1. I’m taking my place/By your side
And I’m not leaving/Until I’m satisfied
- Soothe My Soul

2. If I could just hide
The sinner inside
And keep him denied
How sweet life would be
If I could be free
From the sinner in me
- The Sinner in Me

3. I’m shying from the light
I always loved the night
And now you offer me eternal darkness
- One Caress

4. One touch is all it took
To draw you in
To leave you hooked
One kiss, you paid the price
You had a taste
Of paradise
- Ghost

5. Dangerous
The way you leave me wanting more
That’s what I want you for
When I am in you arms
No, I won’t come to harm
- Dangerous

August Week One

So, Depeche Mode, my synth overlords. My true obsession. Over thirty-five years of magnificence!

Thirty five years - that's not nearly enough a lot of singles, so that's why we have picked five angsty ones for you to Spuffyise.

1. Walking in My Shoes
2. Never Let Me Down Again
3. I Feel You
4. Enjoy the Silence
5. Only When I Lose Myself

August Theme

All things Depeche Mode!

Happy birthday, you're adopted!

Title: Happy birthday, you're adopted!
Author: Rebcake
Rating: PG13
Word count: 1000
Setting: S6, Buffy's 21st birthday
Prompt: "I wish Buffy wakes up tomorrow covered in monkey hair."

I tell you I have this theory? it goes where, you're the one who's not my sister 'cause Mom adopted you from a shoebox full of baby Howler Monkeys, and never told you 'cause it could hurt your delicate baby feelings.
Dawn to Buffy, in "No Place Like Home"

Meanwhile, back at the Magic Box...Collapse )

July Poll


The poll contains all the suggestions from last month's poll. We have also added suggestions from earlier polls and made up a few more to make up the numbers.

Pick which theme you would like to see us feature for AUGUST. As usual, we are not going to explain what each theme is; they may or may not be what you think! In the box beneath the main poll, we’d like you to suggest the theme(s) YOU would like to see for SEPTEMBER.

These suggestions will then form next month’s poll in a mixed up kind of way* along with at least one other suggestion that the mods will throw in themselves. In the event that we have less than 10 suggestions, the mods will fill in the rest to make up the numbers. If your theme suggestion isn’t picked, then you are welcome to suggest it again in other polls.

Remember: your suggestions for themes should be broad so that it’s easy for us to make up 20 prompts. For instance, ‘teacup’ is too narrow, but ‘Alice in Wonderland' works (more or less). Please expand on your suggestion in the comments to this post.

* We reserve the right to reject, tweak or combine any suggestions that are unsuitable, inappropriate for everyone or unworkable for us in any way. This might be because the suggested theme is a) too narrow and we can’t think of 20 prompts, b) too similar to a previous theme, c) because we don’t understand your suggestion or d) because it’s just plain unpleasant (i.e. sexist, racist, homophobic etc).

The poll will probably close around 21.00 GMT, (i.e. when I remember), on Sunday, 31st July 2016. If there is a tie, the mods will choose the theme to do first from the winners and the other winner(s) will follow the month(s) after and there will be no poll for that month(s).

Onto the good stuff:

This poll is closed.

What theme would you like to see for AUGUST?

The Time Tunnel
A Fine Vintage
Back to School
Fast Fashion
It Came from Outer Space
The World on a Plate
Sweet Things
Fantastic Beasts
On the Road

My suggestion for a theme for SEPTEMBER is:

Thank you for your time.

Wishing Doesn't Make It So

A ficlet for this month's prompts.

Setting: The Wishverse from BtVS season 3, with added Spike
Rating: PG
For the prompts:
World is what it is. We fight and we die. Wishing doesn't change that.
There's only one thing I'm good at.
Is this a 'get in my pants' thing?
Look, I don't have time for stories.
560 words.
Author's note: The prompts are all Buffy quotes from The Wish. In this ficlet, I've put one of them in Spike's mouth. I figure Buffy can spare it.

see me feel me/ touch me heal me

This double drabble was originally written for the June theme, but then I couldn't post it for reasons. Luckily it fits the July theme even better (although it's no wishverse fic), and I hope it's okay to post now anyway.
Additionally it was inspired by the wonderful banner nmcil12 posted over at Seasonal Spuffy: http://seasonal-spuffy.livejournal.com/562061.html . Go have a look at it if you haven't already.

Many thanks to the lovely red_satin_doll who beta read it, despite still being half sick.
