My 5 Five Favorite Fandom Cliches  (for xanzpet )

  1. Amnesia.  I love memory loss that starts everybody from a blank slate (and of course the resulting attraction that they never consciously acknowledged totally comes to the fore.)  So much love!
  2. Soul bound.  Primarily I love it for Buffy/Giles, but ye gods I can't forget the great Tabaqui Spike/Xander fic Changes either.
  3. Epistolary.  Give me letters, notes, diaries, emails (although I do prefer there to be something other than 100s of emails).  But... love.
  4. Giles as a kinky sod who knows what he's doing in the bedroom and is comfortable with himself and his partner once he's made the decision that he wants them.  Gah.
  5. Spike can bite even with the chip as long as someone wants him to.  I like it when Spike bites.  Nummy.

My 5 Favorite Board Games (for entrenous88 )
  1. Cranium.  You get the mix of everything all in one game, and it goes fast.
  2. Scattergories.  Even though it takes like three rounds for my brain to get into it, and even though every time the buzzer goes off I jump, it's great.
  3. Uno.  Ok, it's not quite a board game, but it gets really hilarous when you start making alliances to crush the person with the least cards.
  4. Apples to Apples.  Again, I know, it's a card gameish thing, but I'm always amused by it, so on it goes.  Best to play with as perverse as brains as possible though.
  5. The Buffy Board Game.  Ha.  This is when I knew I was a fan, when I loved this game beyond reason.  Sadly people in my house will not play it with me - they say it's quite boring and I'm just gaga.

finally, for xanzpet again, my thoughts on the power of tabloid media in this country.  Collapse )

Spring With Xan Redux: 113 Icons and 8 eps of picspam

For my first day at spring_with_xan  I did 113 icons, and collected some of the great Xander Harris moments of Season 3 into 8 picspam sets.  These icons are both variations on textures using promo pics, and images cut from Season 3. 

to give you a taste:
