lusciousxander: (Scoobies by beneathgulmissy)
Reading the last issue of S8, I realized how much I missed the Buffy, Xander and Willow friendship, so I youtubed it for some vids, and here they are. My eyes teared watching these clips, that's my favorite relationship in the show.

Watched lots of friendship vids and this one is what I liked best:

Friends For Good


Oh, on the opposite side, here's a vid where Buffy kills her friends for those in my flist who hate the Scoobies :)

And here's a cute Xander vid
lusciousxander: (I Feel so close to You by Ehlwyen)
There was a discussion in FanForum about the characters who betrayed Buffy, and I couldn't find a moment where Angel betrays her. Unless we count Angelus' deeds, but if we don't then should we also not count the times un-souled Spike betrayed her because souled Spike never did? Or does joining W&H mean that Angel and Spike betrayed Buffy regardless of their intentions?

This is my first ever Xander/Buffy fic written for [profile] flybywrite at [community profile] btvs_santa

If you're intrested, go here to read it.

I'm not a Buffy/Xander shipper but I had so much fun writing this one, especially Buffy, she's so adorable. It's Post-Chosen.
lusciousxander: (Spander by Claudia)
It's been awhile since I've read a Spander story, and as I was enjoying myself, suddenly started the Scoobies bashing... WTF? I couldn't enjoy the story. Lovely plot it had (well, a very guilt pleasure plot for me. *g*) but I couldn't keep on with all the Scoobies-bashing, then came Riley and of course he's gonna get it. I'm so tired of character bashing. It won't let me enjoy the story, because I'll just keep rolling my eyes all the way to the end, and won't take it seriously.

1- No, the Scoobies don't try to baby Xander all the time, actually they tend to neglect him instead, and ever since S5, Xander stopped caring about his friends not paying him the attention he wants because he has other stuff to focus on: Anya, an apartment and a job he likes.

2- No, Willow doesn't treat Spike like dirt, remember S4? Or you just like to skip it because you dislike Riley and the Initiative.

3- No, Buffy isn't a controlling bitch. She'd never treat Spike OR Xander the way I read in that fic.

4- No, the Scoobies don't throw the "You're useless" card at Xander. If they think he's useless, they'll just keep it inside. I don't even think they think it. Sure, they'd never think he's their winning card, but I don't think they consider him completely useless. I think the only time they thought that of him, or at least Buffy and Willow thought that of him, was in The Zeppo. And they didn't want him there because they loved him, not because they looked down on him.

Of course, it's expected for Buffy and Willow (and even Giles) to dislike Xander's relationship with Spike, but they won't act like jerks about it. Though I can see Buffy giving Spike the shovel speech and even questioning his intentions with some physical abuse (only if he acted like the annoying sweetheart we know and love) but she'd never want to kill him.

Some stuff that bug me about Xander and Spike's characterization:

1- No, Xander isn't a pathetic crybaby. I don't think he ever cried on the show.

2- No, Spike doesn't give a damn about Xander, unless you give me a convincing plot where Spike's feelings change towards Xander. Other than that, the only reason Spike would want to save him (post-chip and pre-Buffy-love) will be because he wants the Scoobies' money. The only reason he'd want to save him (pre-soul and post-Buffy-love) will be because of Buffy. The only reason he'd want to save him (post-soul) will be Buffy and the soul's influence.

Top Five Angsty Vids:

I feel so sad because most of my favorite vids are gone, I'd have recced Sleep Walker by Windy, amazing character study vid, also some of Xandra's character study vids but all of them had disappeared. *pouts*

1- Crucify by [livejournal.com profile] charmax

This video is centered around the end of season 2 and the beginning of season 3. It looks at Buffy’s disillusionment with slaying and her running away from home and her responsibilities. I can never describe how the song choice fits perfectly with Buffy's feelings at this moment.

2- Don't Wanna Know by girlpire

A look at season six's depressed!Xander. After Hell's Bells, things just get worse. Very, very well done! I can just feel Xander's depression here and this vid is really helping me write my Dark!Xander fic.

3- Strange And Beautiful by [livejournal.com profile] charmax

This video is a look at Xander’s unrequited love for Buffy during their school years. This vid reminds me of Shakespeare's A Mid Summer Night's Dream, of Helena's unrequited love for Demetrius, we have a spell put on him while he was asleep, then when he sees her first after he wakes up, he falls in love with her. Xander puts a spell on Buffy and when she wakes up she'll realize that she loves him. Of course, that's all in Xander's head. Very emotional, very dreamlike, very sad.

4- In The Shadows by grey council

This video is about Giles. This vid shows off his potential a bit. So many things we saw of him in the show was promising. The dark, dangerous and brilliant side... that was a bit left 'in the shadows'.

5- Welcome to My Life by Morgan

Buffy teaches Jonathan that no body lives without pain in the Hellmouth. Very sweet and moving.

Fics with Outstanding Characterization: (IMHO)

1- Cuckoo in the Nest by [livejournal.com profile] liz_marcs

Wow, this fic takes us inside the head of Xander's father: Tony Harris. We get to see Xander's life and the events of canon through the eyes of his father. New idea of a fic, amazing characterization, amazing plotting. I especially liked how she made Tony look like a person and not like how many portray him as Mr. Evil Rapist.

2- Confluents by [livejournal.com profile] enigmaticblues

This is one of my favorite season 7 Spuffy fics. All the characters sound in character, the plotline was interesting, the Scoobies' relationships were interesting! We have Buffy dealing with her flaws, I love that it didn't take an "over the top" style to have her discover her weaknesses and flaws. Amazing portrayal of Xander, flawed but still the good man we see on the show. A nice Willow trying hard not to screw up. The grown up Dawn we saw in S7. Anya didn't appear much but she's sarcastic and still blaming Xander for her own choices. As for Spike... well, why don't you read and find out. *winks*

3- Sweet Revenge by [livejournal.com profile] jackson_rayne

A rewrite of season 5 but Spander style. Spike is the character that attracts me the most in this fanfic, usually fanficcers try their hardest to show us how Spike is worthy and deserves to be treated better, sometimes exaggerating to the point of showing him as a saint, even with his apparent flaws. Here though Jackson gives us the real Spike, the Spike who goes through major developments to improve with time for the person he loves without losing what makes him a vampire. I guess the fact that she's using S5 to write her fic helped her to keep Spike in check. Her Spike will always be my favorite Spike.

4- London Calling by [livejournal.com profile] shadowscast

If Saint!Spike annoys me in fanfic, then Marty Stu!Xander annoys me even more. Shadowscast writes a wonderful, believable Xander and you can just see it in the first scene of the fic where Xander and Buffy argue over Spike's AR. Some writers go very mellow with Xander sometimes while others make him go over the top with his Spike hate, but her Xander has a mix of each, he hates Spike but will do whatever he can to make Buffy happy. Of course, other than her Xander characterization, her plot is very intriguing and pulls you in. One of the best Spander fanfic.

5- Starting from Nowhere by [livejournal.com profile] st_salieri

I'd die for a fic that lacks Riley bashing, so thank you [livejournal.com profile] st_salieri! I'm not into Xander/Riley but you can really believe that Xander has it for Riley, plus this is the only fic to convince me that Riley can, well, be gay with a guy. :)
