Snoopy Magneto

Thoughts on fic spoilers (without spoilers)

Fascinating poll here on fic headers and warnings of main character deaths in the fic. It seems that a lot of people seem to want to know in advance if somebody (not who the particular person is, but just if somebody) dies in the fic.

So I guess what I want is non-shock value death when it occurs.

For it to mean something and for it to be not a regular thing - otherwise killing a major character would lose its power to shock and twist the story.

Day 4


March 6 through March 13

Post to your LJ each day at least one of your favorite fanfic authors and why you love them, their work, and why they need more appreciation.

Today, I wish to rec Gidgetgirl who writes in a fairly small area of Buffy fandom : stories involving kids. From future Scoobie offsprings (Mommy's Little Capitalist series with Anya and Xander's kid) to turning various Scoobies into kids (Throwback featuring a very young Faith and Angel), or to total AU's (Cheaper By the Dozen where all the Scoobies are Giles kids and the 12 of them run riot). Great, great fun and never fail to put a smile on my face.

My current favourite is One of those Hideous Fics Where the Mother Dies where a young Cordelia has to now go live with her famous film star actor Xander Harris. Go! Read! Laugh!

(and yes, this is a little late, but it's still Day 4 for a lot of you, and I did start this post before midnight. I just got interrupted by a phone call and an IM plot conference) :P
