Today is the birthday of my favorite romantic, the lovely [livejournal.com profile] jamalov29. As a fandom newbie, I’ve found her journal to be a treasure trove of fic recs, beautiful picspam, and fun JM fangirl squee. Indeed, I’ve come to think of Caroline as a Spuffy goodwill ambassador, generously sharing the love wherever she goes. With that in mind, I wanted to make a sweet birthday greeting with Spike and Buffy just for her.

I’m sad to report that School Hard!Spike and Once More With Feeling!Buffy are just not on the same page, romance-wise. Behold—the poor doofus is trapped in season two! Pitiful.

Ruh-roh! It's gonna hurt a lot, Spike.

I was hoping that Chosen!Buffy and AtS!Spike might have a better time of it, but, as I feared, AtS!Spike’s affections seem to tend in a different direction than they once did.

Ouch! I really should have warned her in advance.


Oh, this is not going well at all! *wrings hands* I’m not sure what to do now! I guess I’ll just throw Doomed Doll!Spike and Graduation Day!Buffy out there and see what happens . . .



Aww, look at that. And they say romance is dead!


HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CAROLINE!!! *hugs galore* I hope that you've had a wonderful day and that the new year brings you joy and lots of new Spuffy-based creativity to enjoy. Bisous, darling! :D

You can't fight True Doll!Love. :-)

There needs to be more birthdays around here! Hee!

It's true! Plastic love will prevail!

Sadly, this is the last January birthday. On the up side, I may actually get a chance to write something. In theory, anyway. I can dream! ;)

Oh that's cute. And of course even School Hard Spike wants some when he sees what's on offer!

Beautiful and just right for the lovely Caroline!

From: [identity profile] mere-ubu.livejournal.com


Thank you, dear! *lol* Yeah, School Hard Spike is seriously reconsidering his options now.

I wanted to pull out all the stops for our Queen of Spuffy but was confounded as to how to actually make it romantic. Hopefully all the silliness helped to camouflage my shortcomings!

Thank you, darlin'! I've probably had an unseemly and age-inappropriate amount of fun playing with dolls this month. ;)

From: [identity profile] penny-lane-42.livejournal.com


I often agree to babysit just as an excuse to play with Legos and color in coloring books, so I can't really blame you. Some fun you never outgrow.

From: [identity profile] mere-ubu.livejournal.com


It's true--kids have all the good stuff! The mister and I probably spend as much time playing with toys as Zgirl does, and we'll be devastated when she finally tires of building elaborate block structures and tearing them down with orcs and astronauts. So much more fun than, say, taxes . . .

From: [identity profile] mere-ubu.livejournal.com


Thanks, amiga! I kind of lost sight of my original goal of wringing a little romance out of the dollies, but at least I had a good time helping them make their usual terrible mess of things.

Look out, Spike! She's got a stake! AND she's a woman scorned!

On the other hand, maybe she's sufficiently softened up at the mo'...

Sweet! A fitting birthday fumetti for jamalov29. Another winner!

P.S. Lynda Barry! Lynda Barry! Lynda Barry!

From: [identity profile] mere-ubu.livejournal.com


Heh-heh. Noticed the stake, did you? I kept debating whether or not to have her hang on to it, but her little bunched-up (man?) hand looked odd with nothing in it. The ambiguity of the embrace was a happy bonus!

Thank you, dear. The Queen of Spuffy must have her plastic smoochies!

I have to tell you that I feel so much fancier now that I know the word "fumetti." Say, have you seen my airs lying around? I might just wanna put them back on. ;)

Yay, Lynda Barry! Isn't she a marvel? My exposure to comics and graphic novels has been sadly lacking, but at least I have my few treasured volumes of Lynda Barry.

From: [identity profile] rebcake.livejournal.com


Heh. I looked up fumetti, to make sure I was spelling it correctly, which I was, and BTW it's Italian for comics. The description said they are popular in Spain and Latin America, where they are called photonovelas, and in Italy where they are called fotoromanzi. So, just where the heck are they called fumetti, huh? It seems odd to me. However, you should feel fancy, 'cos it's Italian! Va bene, bella! So very continental...

From: [identity profile] mere-ubu.livejournal.com


Ooh, I like fotoromanzi, too! *pouts* How come the Italians get all the fun words?

I'm going to shuffle home now and eat some cavatappi. And pout some more.

From: [identity profile] missus-grace.livejournal.com


Oh. My. God. Buffy standing on Spike with the spear pointed at his chest. ROTFLMAO!

And...just...all of them, really. Spike on the ground crying Mercy! And Buffy wanting a drink! And SchoolHard!Spike wanting to make out, too!

If I'd have had my coffee in my mouth when I'd read this, it'd be all over the monitor.

What a wonderful b-day gift for Caroline!

From: [identity profile] mere-ubu.livejournal.com


Heee! Your amusement is very gratifying. Thank you, sweetie! I wasn't sure what I was going to do with all of them, but I was cackling the cackle of an evil doll torturer by the end. (I'm sure you're shocked to hear it.)

Although there's no higher praise for comedy than the coffee spittake, I'm glad that your monitor didn't have to take one for the team. *g*

Nothing like a little Fiddley Bits Theatre to cheer up a dreary day.

From: [identity profile] mere-ubu.livejournal.com


Ding-dangit, woman. How many times must I scold you? No dying! *g*

Aw, I'm happy to do my part in the war against drear. Putting these little tableaux together always cheers me up, and I'm glad to hear that there's a ripple effect.

From: [identity profile] mere-ubu.livejournal.com


Degenerate little doll! *sniffs* Frankly, I was scandalized by the whole sordid business.

Applauds madly

:laughs happily :
Oh Mere, what a fabulous and thoughtful , and delicious birthday present ! I just adore you.::hugs you tight::
I can't decide what image is best : they're all bringing a dazzling smile to my face.And you ended with them kissing !!!!! That's my Spike and Buffy : nothing would be right in this world if they didn't surrender in the arms of each other.

A thousand thank yous, darling. This picspam is worth a gorgeous Summer day.:D
And thanks for your very kind words , this means a lot.
Bisous
Caroline

Oh, yay! You're so very welcome, and I'm delighted that you liked it! When I was taking pictures last night, my husband asked who it was for. When I told him, he said, "Is she the person who always says things so beautifully?" "Yep, she's the one." ;)

Haha! At first, I didn't have the fourth picture, but when I looked at them again, I said, "Nuh-uh. This will not do. We must have the Spuffy smooches for Caroline!"

Re: ::jumps up and down::


This post was pure joy. And of course there had to be spuffy smooches.:D Even with Buffy still holding her stake.:-) Me think the other versions of them are just jealous.*grins*
As for your husband's words ?*wears proudly TEH hat of spuffy ambassador * You will give him a big hug from me, will you, petal?
Mere, your sweetness and generosity are a blessing for us all. :squishes you again:

Re: ::jumps up and down::


Well, she wouldn't be Buffy if she weren't a little dangerous. Plus her little hand looked weird without the stake in it. ;)

Aw, I'll gladly deliver a big hug on your behalf. I think he has almost as much fun with these photo shoots as I do!

I love how GD!Buffy agrees to make out with Spike, but still won't put down the stake. Your couples are hilarious!

From: [identity profile] mere-ubu.livejournal.com


Yeah, Buffy's intentions there seem a little ambivalent, don't they? Also, her little curled-up hands just plain looked weird without the stake, so I went with it.

Thank you! I was shooting for a somewhat more romantic end product, but bad taste hijacked the photo shoot before I could come up with anything solid. *g*

From: [identity profile] spikesdeb.livejournal.com


BWHAHAHAHAHA! thanks for the cheering up of this post. Wonderful stuff :)

From: [identity profile] mere-ubu.livejournal.com


Thank you! I had a blast making this, and I'm always glad to pitch in with cheering up. *g*

From: [identity profile] drop-edge.livejournal.com


Your friends' birthdays always seem to happen when I need someone to bring the funny. Thanks!

From: [identity profile] mere-ubu.livejournal.com


Aw, thank you! I'm always proud to install and service some funny.

Hope your today is much less sucky, cause dude, that much suckitude is not cool. ::waves warding Giles icon at bad juju::

Must be hard for you to think with all those dolls talking at once. I bet final seasons ones are a bit disgruntled at how they were written.

From: [identity profile] mere-ubu.livejournal.com


*lol* It is, and you would not believe what shrill little plastic voices they have! AtS!Spike, in particular, has a terrible attitude and is prone to OOC behavior. I think it's because he knows that he's an inferior and inaccurate copy. The BtVS Spike action figures look at least 40% Spikier than he does. I'm also convinced that Chosen!Buffy is suffering from anemia. How is she supposed to defeat an army of Ubervamps when she looks so tired?

From: [identity profile] diachrony.livejournal.com


OH SO AWESOME.

I always think each successive doll!scenario of yours is my favorite, but I think this one is my favorite!

From: [identity profile] mere-ubu.livejournal.com


Aww, thank you! Sometimes I worry that the doll!fic well is going to run dry, but I vow to do my best to keep making new favorites. ;)

From: [identity profile] spikereader.livejournal.com


I love your doll!birthday greetings - which I always look at but never seem to comment on, so am remedying that now.

This one pleases my Spuffy heart no end. :D

From: [identity profile] mere-ubu.livejournal.com


Hey, thanks! I have so much fun making these, and I'm glad you're enjoying them.

Heh-heh. Don't encourage me! I may have to toddle off to eBay and get more Spikes and Buffys. ;)

From: [identity profile] stars-of-tears.livejournal.com


Litterally ROFL! *rolls*
This is totally awesome! XD

Happy birthday again to the lovely Caroline :)

From: [identity profile] mere-ubu.livejournal.com


Heeee! Thank you, dear! *picks you up and dusts you off* I'm always happy to amuse. :D
