2 things I've read this past 24 hours  
Icarus Rising by Darla Darko, a Harry Potter (H/D) "Veela" story, which is a WIP with 10 chapters up. Draco is a mute amnesiac telepathic Veela. With wings. And a puppy named "Baby." And a--well, I won't mention that here. It's a fun story. In many places, it's like the pure distilled essence of my kinks. This could easily be Spike and Xander, for me, in how they play out some of my fantasies--a Spike who is mute, feral, fiercely protective, obedient, desperate for love. The scenes in the jail are some of my favorite; they have a lovely poignancy; strangely, the sex didn't kick me where I live--I'm usually all about the sex. But all in all, fun.

Dogs of War by tabaqui, which is a keen S/X AU that takes the Initiative to its most extreme possibility. And there's mute, hurt Spike! Happy sigh. This is a story that moves fast, in loose-limbed sprints, the author kicking it forward from point to point like a soccer ball toward its goal, without worrying about getting muddy along the way. And, uh, I've taken that analogy to its most extreme possibility. But this was very cool.

You are welcome! And I just read all existing chapters of "And Ice for Your Wounded Heart" by the way. I...I rather badly need there to be more of this. Please tell me it's still ongoing, and not abandoned...? Eeep?

You are fabulously clever at rewriting canon to your liking. I'm delighted and impressed. *bounce*

Oh, yes, yes. More of 'Ice' for sure - i'm just scrambling around a little, but it will be updated VERY soon. I had a couple ficathon things to finish and an update to 'Credence'.

Unless something dreadful happens, i don't plan on leaving anything of mine unfinished.

And thank you thank you! I like how canon kind of gives you these neat little vingnettes, or images, or lines. And then ME of course fucks it royally. But that leaves so much room for us writers to come along and go veering wildly off in other, more interesting directions.

Reading so many good stories online, i wish that some of the TV people out there could SEE this stuff and go 'hey - that's a DIFFERENT kind of idea, and look! Bunches of people liked it!'.

And then, you know, hire all my favorite fanfic writers to write really good, fun, SLASHY shows.

And i'm all giddy from your feedback.

One day we'll be able to feed all these stories, plus character pictures, into a computer program, and the program will make them play like a film - not too far off I'm sure.
Then we'll never leave the house, and will eventually die from sexual excess...

Oooh. That would be neat.
I'd just like to hook up my brain.
