I figure that virtually everyone on my flist watches this comm, but on the off chance that someone doesn't or perhaps missed my Cinco de Mayo margarita-fueled fiesta of flist-spamming last night, yesterday was my posting day over at [livejournal.com profile] seasonal_spuffy. You can find 75 (yeah, it seems excessive even to me) "Intervention"-inspired haiku right here if you're inclined to check them out. And now, I'm thinking that I might be ready for an intervention; my shower walls are covered in bath crayon babble, my hands have faded scribbles on them, and my illuminated pen burned out because I fell asleep while scrawling some completely unintelligible middle-of-the-night epiphany. Do they make a patch for this? I'm thinking that the squirrels in my attic are no longer just literal. ;)

I'm off to read. Woohoo! My working year ends in three days, and I have a backlog of bookmarked bounty to luxuriate in. I especially can't wait to backtrack through the entries for this round o' teh Seasonal Spuffy; the theme was Poetry (joy!), and there's been some amazing stuff.
I'm home sick with a sick kid today and thought I'd finish shepherding the stray Spaiku homewards. Guess I'm gonna have to start writing some new ones now, huh? Or do some actual housekeeping . . .

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

forty-three spaiku: crushed )
Most of my flist probably watches this comm already, but just in case: yesterday was my posting day at [livejournal.com profile] seasonal_spuffy. You can find forty-three (yep, you heard me--they spiraled out of control!) haiku snapshots from "Crush" right here if such a thing interests you. I'm relieved to be done so that I can get back to reading the entries for this round; there have been so many wonderful contributions, and I highly recommend checking them out if you haven't already done so. *happy sigh* I do so love me some Spuffy. <333
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 )
Bless me, LJ, for I have sinned. It has been thirty-six days since my last Spaiku post. Grant me absolution, and I will vow to post a weekly batch henceforth. Onward! Another interlude wherein Spike and Buffy Bicker at the Bronze--this time about vampirism as a profound existential experience--before the continuation of Spike's completely truthful reminiscences to her about the good old days. ;)   BtVS, S5, G. Previous parts here. Thanks to the mister for having Beta Lunch with me.
five spaiku: fabrication )
Well, I guess I've forestalled tearing off this Band-Aid as long as I possibly can, but I have to admit that I somehow feel personally guilty for dispatching him! Good night, Mr. Pratt. *pets him* Sorry to do this to you. BtVS, S5, PG.  Warning: character death. :(
Previous parts here. Thanks to Mister Beta for playing haiku View-Master with me.

You know how I said there was only one more batch of William haiku to go? As I feared, a Brownie drop-out's honor is, indeed, not good for much. Every time I think I have a scene down to irreducible parts, it shivers into ever smaller pieces. Darn JM and his multilayered performance! Darn him to heck! Honest and for true, though, this is the next-to-last-one. Yep. Many thanks to Mister Beta for long-distance concrit and to [livejournal.com profile] philips for emergency haiku rescue. BtVS, S5. PG. Previous parts here.

four spaiku: temptation )
This is my next-to-last batch of William haiku. Scout's honor! (Okay, I was never actually a Girl Scout, but "Brownie dropout's honor" just doesn't have the same ring to it.) In this installment, William first looks upon the face of his salvation. BtVS, S5. G. (Previous parts here.)

five spaiku: fascination )
Well, it looks like I'm still too preoccupied with William to leave him behind just yet. Here we find him alone, and we're not the only ones. . .
BtVS, S5. G. (Previous parts here.)

five spaiku: renunciation )

I've kind of fallen off the haiku horse in the whirl of the past couple of weeks, but I'm ready to wrangle it again. I'll return to the "Fool for Love" series sometime in the next few days, but I never seemed to have the right notebook with me at SC3 to continue work on them. I kept coming across an old grocery list notebook with some lines scrawled in it that have been stubbornly refusing to coalesce into haiku for many weeks. Every time I pawed through my Curious George backpack, they mocked me, so I tinkered vengefully with them between sessions. From "Triangle," BtVS, S5. Spike whales on a mannequin. PG.

three spaiku: triangle )
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.

I figure that most people on my flist watch this community, but just in case: today's my posting day at [livejournal.com profile] seasonal_spuffy. I've already posted a large-ish batch of Spaiku from "Something Blue" and I'll put a smaller one from "Tabula Rasa" up a little later. I initially had almost twenty (!) for "Tabula Rasa," but there was just no kind of cohesion; after much futile wrangling, I cut it down to haiku from the last few moments of the episode. It's not a pretty thing when haiku rage out of control.

ETA: Now with links to the haiku! What a concept. :)
