mere_ubu: (spike birthday (please credit))
( Apr. 24th, 2009 01:31 pm)
Today is [livejournal.com profile] cindergal's birthday! Please forgive the warmed-over stock footage; it's been one of those weeks, but I didn't want to let the day go by without commemorating the birthday of the wily woman who's invented the best ploy EVER for escaping one's in-laws. (Memo to self for every future xmas holiday in-law visit: hide away under the pretense of wrapping gifts and then drink wine and read pr0n on the interwebz instead.)

Today is the birthday of the multi-talented [livejournal.com profile] beanbeans: writer, photographer, yogi, and fangirl supreme. Oh yeah, and a sweetheart to boot! In addition to all of the above, Beans has also been making the world safe from bad knitting, one stitch at time. Since I've been a grateful recipient of her beautiful work, I wanted to do a little something to honor her mad knitting skilz. Towards this end, I grabbed doll!Spike and headed for the *cough* studio. (I know, I know, but "nightstand" just doesn't have the same ring, does it?)

D'oh! I think I dropped a stitch. )
Today is the birthday of my first fandom friend, the lovely and well-read [livejournal.com profile] louise39. I don't know if I ever would have started my own LJ if Louise hadn't been nice enough to express an interest in reading it, so thanks again for the encouragement, sweetie! Here's a little seasonally appropriate (?) birthday greeting from me and my plastic partner in crime.

A birthday bouquet for you . . . )

Just doing a little housekeeping and bringing home my Seasonal Spuffy entries from the past spring. I plumb forgot about them!

Disclaimer: Spike and Buffy are not mine. I'm just gonna borrow them for, like, five minutes, mmkay?
A/N: Here are thirteen Spuffycentric haiku snapshots from "Something Blue" in four parts. Written for the Spring 2008 round of [livejournal.com profile] seasonal_spuffy. Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] enigmaticblues for organizing this round and also to Mister Beta and [livejournal.com profile] philips for their unerring good judgment. And a big thank you to [livejournal.com profile] blondebitz for the beautiful banner!
Feedback warms the cockles of my heart. (Heh-heh. I said "cockles.")

thirteen spaiku: something blue )
Today was the birthday of [livejournal.com profile] gillo, lady of letters, the stage, and moulder of young minds. Also? A bit of a doll debaucher as well. *links arms in solidarity* Her beautiful and informative picspam has transported me far away from many a dull work day, and her dry wit is always very much appreciated. I especially enjoyed reading Gill's accounts of her trip to Rome this fall, so I enlisted doll!Spike's assistance in making a tasteful birthday greeting inspired by her recent travels. *sigh* O, will I never learn?

Friends, Romans, countrymen . . . lend me a doll who won't shame me in a public forum! )
*frantically checks watch* Whew. Okay. Good! Today is the birthday of [livejournal.com profile] c_woodhaven. *sheepish* Or it still is in the Central Time Zone, anyway. In addition to being a writer whose fic updates make me do the happy dance on a regular basis, Calypso is also one of the sweetest, most creative people I've encountered. For my birthday, I was delighted to find that she had not only written Ultimate Sin, a lovely piece of Spuffy smut, but that she had included a recipe for the title concoction as well. While I was away at my family's Thanksgiving celebration yesterday, I instructed doll!Spike to re-read said fic and come up with some ideas for a birthday photo shoot that would be a fitting tribute to the wonderful Ms. Woodhaven.

Well.

Nutella-inspired birthday naughtiness/nuttiness this way! )
For this week's [livejournal.com profile] fantas_magoria "School Hard" Flash Challenge: "Spike has fought two Slayers in the last century, and... he's killed them both." says Giles. Write a haiku poem for each of those incidents.

two spaiku: two slayers )
Hi. *waves weakly* Well, so much for my recent vow to post every week. It seems that RL conspires against the composition of haiku at every turn. Now that BtVS, S2 (read Spikealicious) episodes are fast approaching at [livejournal.com profile] fantas_magoria, I have high hopes of both getting on a more regular writing schedule and doing more with S2 while the big FFL project continues to percolate. So. Here are a few more. Our boy gets a new name. BtVS, S5, PG. Previous parts here. Big thanks, as always, to Mister Beta for his input and to all of you who read the wee things.

five spaiku: appellation )
Another installment of Spaiku, William Pratt Edition. Poor lamb. (Thanks to Mister Beta for giving up his lunch hour to play haiku eye-chart with me. "Which do you like better, this one or this one? Yes? What about if I do. . .this to it. Or this!" I was like an evil optometrist with this batch.)
BtVS, S5. G.

five spaiku: humiliation )
In today's installment, we meet that nice William Pratt. After spending much of the weekend with him, I confess that I began to find his writing style somewhat contagious. Mister Beta has asked that I caution the reader thusly: “Written in the style of a man who is going to get his ass handed to him for the next 120 years.” BtVS, S5. G.
