estepheia: (Ethan with beard)
I haven't posted a chapter in years. *feels guilty* But I have often pored over this fic. I suppose when you lose the initial impetus, it's hard to get back on track. When the wrong side of the brain takes over, you analyze (and edit) everything to death instead of just running with the bunny for the sheer fun of it.
This isn't my favourite section of the story, but since I dumped Ethan and Giles in the middle of bloody nowhere I had better make sure they don't freeze to death...,.

Crossposted to [livejournal.com profile] open_on_sunday
I am so out of practice, when it comes to writing in English, and my memory of the show is getting hazier, but I thought: Let's try a little drabble anyway...
Set during S2.
----

Earning Giles’s forgiveness was harder than turning lead to gold. Ethan knew, he’d tried both.

Trying to blow Giles after Randall’s funeral had been a mistake, he knew that now, but it’s not like Ethan had had any experience saying sorry. He’d never wanted, never needed anyone’s forgiveness before. He’d considered himself a free man: free to go where chance took him, without looking back.

How do you say you’re sorry to a man who cannot bear the sight of you?

You don’t.

All you can do is treat every punch, every kick, as the caress that might have been.

estepheia: (Ethan with beard)
Another lucky find! I love love love Ethan stories about his time in Initiative custody.
This one is terrific. No surprise there, after all it was written by Indri.

I'm sorry about the enormously long wait. My muse buggered off to distant shores, and only recently returned. I never gave up on this fic, though. I know where I'm going, it's just that sometimes I'm not happy with the tone, or only one of the character voices sounds okay. *sigh*
I also have to say, that I'm not normally a fan of long-winded stories. I often feel this ought to be speedier, but  Giles and Ethan refuse to be rushed. They say they are too old to be rushed. :-)

I should be setting the table, making dips, shopping, etc, but I had to finish this drabble first (which was very hard to tweak, since it could have easily been turned into a 1000 word fic. Enjoy.

For [livejournal.com profile] sueworld2003  who asked for Gildes and Spike meeting up post-Chosen

Advent Drabble # 5 - Anniversary

“Spike!”

“Got a place to crash?”

He’s standing on Giles’s doormat, huddled under a blanket, emitting wisps of smoke into in a golden November sunrise.

Giles sighs. “Come in.”

Spike smells slightly singed, as he brushes past him.

“How d’you know my address?” Giles moves through the living room to draw the curtains.

Shrug.

“Are you dripping blood on my carpet?”

Another shrug. Spike studies the Thanksgiving cards that adorn the mantelpiece, while Giles eyes the Sainsbury’s carrier that appeared on his sofa.

“Booze,” Spike grins. “And a turkey.”

Giles arches an eyebrow.

“Remember 1999? The Chumash?”

Giles grins. “Vividly.”

estepheia: (Ethan with beard)
This one is for [livejournal.com profile] shapinglight who asked for Giles/Ethan, too cold for Christmas. I hopy you like schmoop.


Drabble #4 - Cold

It doesn’t happen often. The dreams are not all nightmares; they don’t always end with Ethan’s blood splattered across the wall. Yet, even the good ones leave Giles aching with regret.

This time, he jerks awake with crimson images scattering like crows. Christmas morning. The house is silent. Maybe he should have accepted Buffy’s invitation.

He ought to get up, give Perceval his extra hay and apples, and a pat on the neck, but in his heart it’s too cold for Christmas.

Suddenly, a blue light sneaks into the bedroom. A locator spell!

“Anybody home? Ripper?”

The cold is gone.

estepheia: (Xmas)
My third advent drabble (by the way, you can still post prompts, just go back three posts) and my first ever fic in the SCC fandom. I shamelessly stole the first line from the title of a Philip K. Dick novel.
For [livejournal.com profile] justhuman who asked for Sarah and Cameron, with "choices" as a prompt. Sorry, I kind of lost sight of your initial prompt while tinkering with this. I hope you like it anyway.


Advent Drabble #3 - Moments

Terminators don’t dream of electric sheep. They don’t dream. Period. They’re not distracted by nightmares; they have no subconscious to speak to them in riddles. Instead they’re focussed, goal oriented. Always awake.

Weapons that look like people. Nothing more.

Yet, sometimes I wonder what Cameron is thinking. What goes on in her metal skull, when she – no, it! – stands there, motionless, watching, listening? Are the cogs spinning and turning, tirelessly computing scenarios of destruction? Does it have moments of complete inactivity as long as events do not trigger its programming? Does it have what I can’t have: Moments of peace?



estepheia: (Happy Days)
For [livejournal.com profile] lynnenne who asked for Spike/Angel, flirting.
This could be set any time you like, but for me it's post Ats S5.


Drabble #2 - Flirt

“Angel! Fancy finding you here!” Spike slips into his booth.

Angel stares at his drink. “Go away! Pretend you don’t know me.”

Beat.

“’Lo, Sunshine. Buy you a drink? Say, haven’t I seen you before?”

“Spike!”

“What?”

Thud! Something drops to the floor. Suddenly, a boot-less foot is unerringly sneaking up the inside of Angel’s leg, heading for his crotch.

Angel’s breath hitches.

“Now’s the time, cupcake. Either slap me in the face or invite me over for coffee.” Spike’s leer is so bright, it hurts

“Coffee?” Angel squeaks.

“Yeah, alright.” Spike shrugs, but his tongue curls behind gleaming teeth.

estepheia: (Xmas)
I'm terribly out of practice when it comes to writing drabbles, sorry. Also, it turned out rather morbid. I hope you guys like it anyway.

For [info]petzipellepingo

Spike/William – Victorian Christmas

Advent Drabble #1 - Perfect

Popcorn and cranberry garlands spilling from Dru’s sewing box? A new frock for Miss Edith? Spike knows the signs. 

Who cares if it’s hot outside? That the calendar claims it’s the end of August. The world’s full of fir trees, and for a few quid he can buy a gallon of turkey’s blood and lace it with cinnamon. As for decorations, all he has to do is pick a house and eat the owners. Nine times out of ten, they’ve plenty of Christmas trinkets in the cellar. Their bodies make good decorations, too. A perfect Victorian Christmas for his Princess.

estepheia: (Writing)
Fanfiction
Do you read or write fanfiction?Yes
When did you first start reading/writing fanfiction?When "Intervention" aired. I believe my first fanfic was a post-Intervention fic by Miranda.
What was your first fandom?BtVS
First ship?Spike/Buffy
What website do you use most?LEO (German/English dictionary I use at work)
What do you think of Fanfiction.net?It's a shame they got rid of the smut. I used to like the archive, there were always good stories among the crap
What fandoms have you written in?Jossverse, Supernatural (drabbles), CSI (unfinished), Harry Potter, Veronica Mars, Smallville
Pairings?Spike/Buffy, Spike/Xander, Spike/Ethan, Spike/Xander/Anya, Spike/Anya, Giles/Ethan, Spike/Tara, Spike/Wesley, Spike/Angel, Ethan/Lindesey (one of my faves), Spike/Andrew, Jayne/River, Mal/Inara, and lots of friendship pairings - also, unpublished: Spike/Riley, Xander/Giles, Spike/Lindsey, Faith/Cordy
Any fandoms you would like to write in?Doctor Who - but I don't have the background knowledge
Do reviews affect how you write in any way?They affect IF I write more than HOW I write. If readers clamour for a fic I find it easier to push distractions away and focus on writing.
Do you use a beta?I used to (Marcee, LadyCat and Sangpassionne were fabulous betas), but nowadays I don't have an Instant Messenger anymore, so I kinda lost touch...
What ratings do you read/write?Any
What warnings have you used on your fiction/read?Oh, I have written a very nasty non-con fic, and I even tried my hand at daddy kink, but most of my porn is harmless fun, threesomes, voyeurism and such
Do you have any squicks?incest, under age sex (which in my country means und the age of 16)
Do you Role-play online? If so, what?Nope. Only pen and paper. Fantasy and Call of Cthulhu
Have you ever stolen something from another person's work?No, but someone once thought I had: It was a case of bright minds thinking alike - Xander and Spike share a few beers thinking about the upcoming showdown and mortality. There were similarities, yes, but we both wrote our stories without knowledge of the other's work.
Favorite fandom to write/read?Jossverse
Favorite pairing?Spike/Xander and Spike/Ethan
Favorite writer/writers?Anna S, Kalima, Wiseacress, Mikelesq (esp. his "Teaser Pony") - there are others, but I tend to forget who wrote what *cringes*
How long should a chapter be?As long as it needs to be
Do you write/read drabbles?yes/yes
Any fandoms you avoid?Supernatural
Pairings you avoid?Dean/Sam
Warnings you avoid?daddy kink, character death
Do the number of reviews tell how good a story is?No, not really. One of my best stories received very little feedback; also, I have seen stories that had tons of feedback but that I didn't like. *shrug*
What do you think of Mary Sues?I hate them - except for Nicolette, of course ("Nicolette Says Jump" - by Kalima)
Have you ever flamed someone?No, but sometimes my criticism sounds a bit harsh (especially in my early fandom years)
Have you ever been flamed?Yes
That's it, aren't you glad?Yup

I'm sorry about the long wait. Although I tinkered with the chapter almost every day, I never made real progress until this morning. The last two weeks were both busy and lazy. I took time off, the kids were at home, we made a few trips, played computer games. Anyway, the next part is almost finished. I hope it won't take me long to update.

Only a very short update today, more a teaser than an actual chapter, but I wanted to let you know that I haven't abandoned this story, even if I posted a Spander fic yesterday.... Anyway, the next chapter is almost finished. If only I could stop tinkering... Hee.
