He hoped his mother never found out. She'd sent him to the city to become a swordsman, not a highway robber.

Thanks for the encouragement! This is a great community.

Deadline Day!

Yes, it's time to Get It Done, or get your excuses in... No, seriously, I'm delighted a bunch of people have delivered on things they've been meaning to do over the past few months, and a few more are on the verge of it. (And at least one is Getting It Done but constrained to post during another challenge, opening in a couple of weeks.) Random deadlines ftw!

This comm will remain open for posting to allow those of you nearly there to post in the next weeks, and I'll aim to put up a masterpost before Christmas. But anyone posting later is still welcome. We're more about the progress than the timekeeping (Stern Puppy notwithstanding).

If you've done what you intended, or progressed what you hoped, have a puppy button to celebrate:
Getting it done 2013

If there's demand, we'll be back next year for more random deadlines.

And now I have to go read some stuff because it's been *killing me* to see all your posts and have no time to enjoy them.

Fic: Telling Porkies


Title: Telling Porkies
Author: Beer Good (beer_good_foamy)
Fandom: Buffy, season 2
Rating: PG13
Word count: ~3,500
Characters/Pairings: Dawn, Mr Gordo (background Buffy/Angel)
Summary: A different angle on "Becoming". Buffy thinks she has problems with Angel turning evil? Well, boo hoo. Dawn has to deal with a possessed stuffed pig trying to raise an army to end the world.
Written for letsgetitdone 2013.
Thanks to angearia for the inspiration.

Only little kids believed in monsters in the closet. And only really weird little kids believed in evil, demonic, fluffy pigs in the closet.

Read it on: LJ / DW / AO3
So here it is: Jensen in spaaaaace, aka the fic that ate my life lately. I hope you enjoy it. And even if you don't, the *art*, people, the *art* you have to see! The ones included in the fic are only half size, so go look at the art post for the real thing. It's glorious.

Title: Three Steps Past Triton
Author: brutti_ma_buoni
Fandom/Genre: SPN: space adventure
Pairing(s): Jared Padalecki/Jensen Ackles
Rating: NC17
Word Count: 24000
Art Masterpost: All the AMAZING art for this fic - seriously, you have to click here! (Story spoilers, beware.)
Artist: cassiopeia7

Summary: Jensen is a space captain. Jared is a space whore. When Jensen gives Jared just one chance, the kid takes it. They travel through hell and beyond, though that's partly astronomy, not metaphor. And in the end, maybe it wasn't the kid that needed saving.

Originally for a prompt in the To Boldly Go ficathon hosted by deirdre_c. I posted a little ficlet, and couldn't let it go. This, um, happened. And then, amazingly, cassiopeia7 happened, and made me think about practicalities and aerodynamics, and just what Hell's Gate should look like – and just look at what she made for this story. We hope you love both fic and art; we definitely loved creating them!

Full Circle

Got it all done!

So, here it is - the final story in my Spike/Giles season 7 series (which is still searching for an overall title. I thought of Secondary Theatre - as in, theatre of war, Sunnydale being the primary theatre of the war against the First in season 7. But if you google 'secondary theatre' (or indeed 'theater') you just get links to secondary school theatre programs. So perhaps not?).

Anyway, this may not be what some of you were expecting as the end of this series, but it is the way I always imagined it ending. And it is a series. There are many references in this story to what has gone before, for which see here for previous stories in the series. I'll put up a link to the series on Ao3 when I've posted it there (which won't be till after I have an overall title. Sigh!)

Setting: Charles Robson's flat, London. The evening of the same day of the previous story, Secrets.
Rating: PG-13/R-ish (mainly for swearing and mention of attempted rape).
Pairings: Spike/Giles. Mention of Spike/Buffy.
Beta: dwyld read it through for me. All mistakes are mine, of course.
Author's Note: That's it! No more WIPs.

You Have Got It Done, Right?

Stern puppy

Stern puppy wants to know. Stern puppy is here to remind you that the Get It Done posting deadline is 8 December which is only a week(ish) away, depending on your time zone.

Stern puppy also REMINDS YOU that there is no point in signing up for a random deadline if you do not RESPECT THE RANDOM DEADLINE. Please respect the deadline.

Stern puppy quietly mentions there may be a possibility of extensions and late posting if necessary, because, you know, life happens even when you're getting stuff done for a random deadline. Stern puppy hopes you're not reading this part, though.

Fic: Searching for Jim

Searching for Jim
Author: sparrow2000
Written for 2013 fall_for_sx
Characters: Xander, Spike
Rating: PG overall
Genre: Slash relationship, but not in the actual story
Warnings: little bit of angst
Word count: 3,500
Disclaimer: Joss and Mutant Enemy et al own everything. I own nothing
Summary: Spike and Xander are in a cemetery – well of course they are...
Beta extraordinaire as always: thismaz
Comments are cuddled and called George

When I realised I wasn't going to get done the story I'd intended, I decided to do an extra entry for this year's fall_for_sx so that I'd feel I'd achieved something. So here it is...

Searching for Jim


Got it done.

Links below to the penultimate story in my Spike/Giles season 7 story, begun in 2008. Previous stories in the series can be found here. Also, the final story is completed in draft. It just needs beta'ing (and possibly completely re-writing, we'll see), so it will appear before the end of the year.

Setting: London, BtVS season 7, some time before Bring on the Night.
Rating: PG/R, for some violence and swearing.
Pairing: None as such in this part, though some Spike/Giles UST.
Beta: Beta'ed by hello_spikey, to whom many thanks.
Author's Note: This story carries on immediately from where the last story left off. As previously explained (in one of the earlier stories in the series), when writing Molly the potential Slayer, I just could not bring myself to write her as that horrible Dick Van Dyke from Mary Poppins' granddaughter type character so I just made up a different character with the same name.
