Spuffy Comic Kiss

What Have I Done?

Poor essene. I guess I should have warned her that I tend to rec fics of EPIC proportion. Seems she got all caught up in the spell of Repossession. I know it's not everyone's cup of blood... but it has magic.

What hooked me was the very first chapter. It was a Xander I hadn't really read before... older, strong, accomplished and confident. And while I prefer my Spike to be loud, proud and strong... I found myself aching, shaking, crying and caring for this Spike. I am determined to see it through to the end.

Each chapter that comes up raises more questions than are answered. I can't believe it's been two years in the making... and was thrilled when I came in at Chapter 50! Every Monday nite finds me here, clicking refresh on the site from 9 pm on. On occasion, willa_writes, tgray, kallysten and I get together and discuss calmly and rationally (oh yeah... shrieks and yowls and rants and whoops are closer to the truth) the chapter we've just read. Anyone who wants to join in is welcome - just let me know your AIM or YAHOO screennames and I'll give you mine.

Now, it's off to think of the next trap hook fic to rec and who to snare entrap cajole rec it to. *gleefully rubs hands together and evilly cackles out loud**

A Moment of Silence

**sighs** Just heard of two deaths within 10 minutes. First, my friend Stuart's father. Not sure of the circumstances... but he was a man well into his 80's. Second, my friend Jeanne's mom, also well into her 80's. She had a massive stroke, and passed away in her sleep.

Not much to say about it = but until that last shoe drops, I'm not gonna feel comfortable. Think I'll call my ex mother in law just to say hello. While I can. I hate it, but I do believe in the rule of three... so just a tad nervous.

Going out to dinner with Jeanne - hopefully for some solace and comfort and company... will be back, later.
