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**

lol, Reposession is a dangerous fic to jump in on, unless you have a few days to devote to reading:P I literally had to be pulled away from the comp several times once I started reading...

My aim handle's LittleDaria *wants in on discussion*:P

Heh. It wasn't just essene you corrupted, because I followed her here and thence to Reposession, and stayed up until 3:30am reading it. I stopped at the end of chapter 12 only because the spectre of a 7:00am alarm clock buzzer had me quaking in my boots. So now I'm here at work on less than 4 hours of sleep, and my fingers are twitching to click over and start chapter 13 instead of doing all this work piled on my desk.

I tried to blame essene, but she placed all the blame squarely on your head, so I thought I'd better come and tell you off sacrifice a goat to you or something. In reality, I just wanted to thank you so much for the rec. It's such a great story, and I'm throughly enjoying it. It's alternately making me smile, and ripping my heart out, and really, what more can anyone ask for in a fic?

Thanks!

And you've just been friended back, girl. I can't wait to see you after you've read a 'bad' chapter. There are a couple you really don't want to eat before reading.

Yeah, you blindsided me with Reposession as well. I finally forced myself to bookmark the page and quit reading at 3 this morning, at chapter 25.
Guh!

At least it's not a WIP though -- I can't count the number of times I've been hooked into a fantastic storyline on rec only to find myself dropped off a cliff after two days of reading because the author's gotten bored and shunted the story into limbo! Makes me grind my teeth down to stubs, it does!

Oh gods... you poor thing... you're gonna have one happy dentist, 'cause Repo is definitely still a WIP. Laz is up to chapter 92... and there's no end in site, and everyone's legs are still up in the air still hanging on to every word with unanswered questions.

Two years in the writing, and Laz is NOT slowing down. Stay with us, baby... it's a wonderfully painful ride.

Dear... have you ever heard the phrase "Misery loves company?" Does THAT answer your question?

Personally... this is a fic that deserves to be read. Praise deserves to be heaped upon Laz. It certainly isn't the usual characterization of Spike... but so consistant within this story, that I will never forget it. It really isn't everyone's cup of blood... but everyone deserves the chance to figure that out for themselves.

Spike and Xander slashfic was not and still is not my favorite coupling of choice... but now I've learned to take it fic by fic. This is the one that made me look for more.

Gonna make another post today - with more recs. Be warned... however, I will take pity on you and give you completed fic. For the most part. Will note. **grins**
