The original pilot: Buffy the Fairy Slayer
Happy Anniversary my dearest darlings!

For our anniversary, I repost the long lost original pilot Joss Whedon fully intended to use.

********************************************************************
Disclaimer

The following post mocks, in no particular order: Joss Whedon; fandom; Buffy the Vampire Slayer (both the movie and the t.v. show) and all characters therein, especially Andrew; John Travolta; Unions; slash; Family Affair (except for Mr. French, for he is the epitome of cool); junk food; manips; Hans Christian Anderson; Disney; fairies (the kind with wings, politically incorrect aspersions are unintended, except for when they are intended); bad!fic; Hollywood; Doms; the current Serenity fake outs starring Joss; the words “diaphanous,” “ethereal,” “canoodle,” and “wee” (in the Scottish usage); Scots (see previous item); costume designers; angels; and, most ashamedly, Martin Luther King, Jr.*

No offense is intended, although surely some will be taken. If offended, be comforted by the knowledge that I will surely go to the special!hell wherein there are no pretty boys but many toy poodles.

*Also, toy poodles and their owners. And the word "wherein."

*************************************

I was recently asked:

“O wise Dancetomato, keeper of all fandom knowledge, how did the fairy thing start?”

What follows is the untold true* story of Buffy the Fairy Slayer.
*true in this case means, “I made it up.”

Joss Whedon had a dream Collapse )
Epilogue

Years after the end of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” Joss still harbors his dream about killer fairies. In an attempt to finally convince Hollywood of his brilliance, Joss has employed sooper seekrit minions to flood the internet with subliminal and liminal messages. “Fairies are scary,” the messages say. “You are scared of the fairies. You want to see hot, naked fairies. In leather.” And one day, we may yet see on our t.v. schedule a brilliant show entitled, “Muffy the Fairy Demolisher.”

FIC RECS for author: btvslover82 (multiple pairings)
#1 That Hole in Your Life. FOR ADULTS ONLY (This series is pretty much self-indulgent smut to humor several various kinks. I’ll try to fit some substance in there somewhere <nods earnestly> Anyway, Buffy is the 16-year-old babysitter for Spike and Dru, who have an open marriage. Dru encourages her husband to go after her, and he thinks this is a great idea until things start to go a little wonky. Warnings for eventually dark, underage sex, increasing levels of kink. It will remain consensual. Special warnings on each chapter. WIP)

#2 Won't Back Down. FOR ADULTS ONLY ("Teen human AU, and my first fic <hugs it>. punk!Spike and whitetrash!Angel couldn't stand to be in the same room together, until their best friends Willow and Faith started meddling... Additional pairings (not explicit): Oz/Willow, Faith/surprise :) with sequels at this same memories link. COMPLETE.) Very moving. Another novel-worthy AU story!

#3 That One Time. FOR ADULTS ONLY (What is the story behind Spike claiming that he and Angelus had only been intimate “that one time” anyway? ONE SHOT)

Fic Rec: My Top Five Faves of velvetwhip
velvetwhip is one of my all time favorite Buffy authors. She writes largely Willow/Angel, Willow/Angelus and Willow/Spike but its well worth it especially if you're an angst fan. If you're not familiar with her work already, I'd encourage you to go look at it.

These are my top five favorites:

1. Sunrise This is a fairly short Willow/Angel story and its written so beautifully. The basic summary is that Angel asks Willow what a sunrise is like because he can't remember.

2. Hell To Pay This is not a direct link but it will get to the page its on. "Hell To Pay" is an incredibly DARK Willow/Angel fic. It is not recommended for anyone under 18. It has some very disturbing visual imagery but its also a wonderful look at the sick and twisted human psyche. This is worth the read though.

3. They Can't Take That Away From Me This Willow/Angel story won first place in the drabble contest over at btvsats_love for very good reasons I believe. It's a short piece set after season 6 and well worth it the read.

4. Escape Me Never This is also not a direct link due to this story's adult content. It is also a dark fic. It is a fabulous masterpiece that is still in progress. It takes places in season 2. At its most basic level, its about Angel picking up the pieces of Willow after she was tortured by Angelus. It's so much more than that.

5. Better Than Harry Potter This is a Willow/Spike fic that I find absolutely adorable! It's delightfully fluffy and brings two of my favorite things together. Spillow and the Harry Potter Books :O)

FIC RECS for author: angelspike69 (often co-authored w/ anamcara420)
In no particular order, though the first one is definitely my favorite...

#1 Runaways. FOR ADULTS ONLY (Two damaged young men meet by chance in the woods in Vermont. Through conflict and kindness and the special magic of Christmas, they stop running from their pasts and help each other to heal. COMPLETE.) Personal note from me: So far, this has been my absolutely favorite AU slash story. If you like beautiful, slow-building, rollercoaster-ride, hurt/comfort stories, this one is perfect. I told them repeatedly that they should change the names and sell it. It's that good.

FIC RECS for author: sexymermaid
#1 Man Servant. FOR ADULTS ONLY. (Riley takes over the Initiative branch in Sunnydale and is gifted his own personal sex slave, Spike. Various pairings including Spike/Riley, Xander/Joyce, Ethan/Giles and Lindsey/Angel. Very erotic and dark story, but also a tender story of h/C. Status: complete. Multi-award winning story.)

#2 The Janitor. FOR ADULTS ONLY. (Liam is a part time boxer and janitor, who meets and crushes on shy Will, a reclusive student. Liam only wants to be close to Will, and will surrender himself completely to Will's every desire. Status: finished. Mulit-award winning story.)

#3 Star Man. FOR ADULTS ONLY. (Liam is a total selfish bastard, a cold CEO who fires William, an ex-con, on Christmas Eve. When he tries to stop Will from p*ssing on the front door of his office, he's struck by lightning and an Angel is suddenly trapped in his body. Will guides the innocent and glorious Angel as he tries to find a way back to where he belongs, but can't help but desire him. Can a very human and f**ked up ex con love an angel? Holiday story she ran over the month of December. Multi-award winning story.)

More to come for other fave authors of mine! Got a HUGE list!
