I believe I've finished my latest story. Great Mother of Christ! Must edit and stuff, but am still all a-twitter.

Also re-read "Subtleties" today, for some random reason. The last time I re-read it, I decided I really only liked the first half and that the rest was kind of "off." This time, though, all of it made me very happy, and now I'm a kind of meta-happy. Not all stories of mine thrill me on re-reading. But it makes sense--the personal kink content on that particular story is like the fat content of sweet cream: 98% or something equally extreme. I just like to see Xander making Spike happy, and the reverse. I can't think of anything more happy-making than people petting Spike until he purrs. I've had this fantasy recently of Wes taking Spike as a slave--when he lacks a soul--then spoiling him until he's all slit-eyed and contented like a buttery-furred housecat.

I've got no idea what to do with the rest of my evening. My cable is fucked at the moment and I'm kind of wired and at loose ends. Damn it. I would kill for some hot new S/X. I mean, there are *certain* *people* I'd kill for this fix. I'd sacrifice them on the alter of slash and make gravy of their brains and such. That's not wrong, is it?

Such pretty boys.

Sacrifice for the greater good is more than acceptable,there are many people who would be perfect for Spike/Xander gifting. In some cases it would be the best thing they could do with themselves. Ah I am tired, the claws are out in public. Have visions of new campaign posters; Bush for sacrifice, it would be an ironic ending especially if the fic was titled 'Spike and Xander's most excellent New York marriage'.

I am jiggling happy to hear you have another part almost ready for us. I love your work so very much.

You should write a fic where Subtleties-Spike becomes friends with Justin from QAF who has run away to New York to become a hustler. Spike could be dismissive at first but eventually become sort of protective and then like a year later when Brian comes to look for Justin on some random errand, Justin can tell Brian to fuck off and Spike can act all defensive and Brian can be all jealous.

*I* think it's a good idea. Or, not *good* maybe, but

Xander making Spike HAPPY
At least Spike doesn't turn into a pumpkin when he gets happy.

A grumpy, bumpy, fangy pumpkin.

Not wrong exactly, just a highly disturbing visual. But a prison sentence will give you even more time to write so I'm not really seeing the downside from where I'm standing.

Plus I'm sure you'll look cute as a button in an orange jumpsuit.

(And as for you finishing another story - yippee!)

Subtleties is perhaps my favorite fanfic of all time. That includes every single one of my many fandoms and pairings. Every time I reread it, I get something more out of it. I'm glad to hear it made you meta-happy this time around, because it thrills and satisfies me like no other. :)

I think Arnold Schwarzewatsit would make a nice impressive sacrifice on the slash altar - but I'm also prepared to offer my own mother....
