Once upon a time there was a fledgeling fanfic writer, who discovered the joys of slash quite by accident (thinking that a site called 'Slashing the Angel' surely hosted torture fics, eww!). However, then she came across Pet's Educations series and mpoetess
's "Chocolatey Goodness". What a discovery! Our fledgling writer felt tempted to write some slash fic of her own, just a short X/S fic, nothing fancy, and ended up writing a long series, one she never quite finished, namely:Let's Talk About Sex
Rating: NC-17 for smut (both her and slash) and language
Pairing: X/S, S/Anya, X/Anya plus (in the pipeline) X/S/Anya
Summary: Vaguely set in a much lighter S6, where Buffy and Spike had sex just once; For Anya's birthday Xander decides to give her a threesome and recruits Spike for the event (wanting the vampire for Anya's pleasure but quickly coming to think of other applications for the blond menace)
Genre/Warnings (for the whole series): AU, comedy, fluff, angst, romance, friendship, some bad jokes, some song lyrics, pot, pop culture, wanking and no Anya-bashing whatsoever - plus everybody is extremely consenting :-)
This was the first smut I ever wrote. My lack of experience shows in the first few chapters, but I think from chapter 5 onwards it's not so bad. I enjoyed writing it and it's irked me for months that I lost impetus so close to the finishing line.
Since then, the story has been nominated in the Candy Store Awards for Best Threesome. I suppose it would be more flattering if the nomination were in any of the other categories, but I'm happy anyway. Besides, there's not much competition in that category. Anyway, the nomination seems to have provided me with a much needed nudge, because I'm really determined now to give this smutty little guilty pleasure a proper ending.
In order to put pressure on myself to finally finish this baby, I'm posting a little peek preview, i.e. a few paragraphs of the chapter I'm currently working on (I should warn you, they will undoubtedly be rewritten somewhat, but to give you a little taste of what's coming, they should suffice):( This way to the unadulterated smut... um, foreplay )
