Fanfic Author Appreciation Week
March 6 through March 13
Post to your LJ each day at least one of your
favorite fanfic authors
and why you love them, their work, and why they
need more appreciation
What can I say that hasn't been said?
One week will never be enough time to express what this woman means to me in terms of fanfic alone. The depth and breadth of her characters and universes always leave me wanting more. Her talent for bringing stories to life has even taught me an appreciation for couples well outside of my OTP... or TTPs as the case may be.
She's written me exquisite little Spuffy snippets (though it's outside of her preferred pairings) and Yankees baseball Spangel.
If I have to rec one particular story/'verse, it's Pierced!Verse, her AU Human Spike/Xander series about a tattoo artist (Spike) and a carpenter (Xander). What started off as nothing more than porn with a shovel turned into one of the sweetest, most emotional stories I've ever read. If you haven't read this yet, go now! Treat yourself.
Best of all, she's branched out into original fiction - away from the cocoon of fanfic. More, more, more, I say!!!!
She's been there for me personally on days I'd given up, and lets me be there for her when she needs me. It just works out well all around. My world wouldn't be the same without her in it - so, Ms. Willa... know that I appreciate you with all my heart and soul.
