There are so many authors I love and truly appreciate. And I am sure I will forget some of my absolute favourites and be kicking myself later... but I'm gonna list a few who spring quickly to mind...
First and foremost my incredibly talented beta amybnnyc
who is probably the most awe inspiring author I have ever read, a wonderful beta and above all an amazing and supportive friend.. there are a few people who have come into my life because of this fandom who I am so incredibly grateful for having had the opportunity to know... Amy is one of them. Her amazing talent aside my life is so much richer for having her in it!
As for her work I KNOW I could not say it as well as enigmaticblues
did in THIS POST
Her fics can be found on her site I'll be Your Mirror
... if you haven't read her work rush over there and treat yourself... you won't regret it!!slaymesoftly
is another friend who I just cannot imagine not
having in my life, she's also a wonderful beta and sounding board. She writes beautiful heart-warming (and sometimes heartbreaking) Spuffy fics with lovely characterisations and thoroughly enjoyable plots that will make you smile, and cry and smile some more! They are also more than a little steamy in places too!! Check out her work on her site Spuffy Stuff
lol... there's just a LITTLE bit of reading there. I love all her work... but a personal favourite is Prolgue to Life/Iknow Youtalesofspike
is a lovely lady with a wonderful and very witty sense of humour who I was so lucky to meet when I read the wonderful Ganya fic she wrote as a birthday pressie for my lovely beta. Her Ganya series "The Tales of Giles and Anya
" is fantastic and is a MUST read. And her epic "Spike's Will be Done"
series is just a wonderful and amazing journey over 5 beautifully written books that just keep on getting better with each successive book. Check out her site He's No Angel
for evenmore of her wonderful work.enigmaticblues
writes such lovely tales that touch your heart in so many ways. Her characters are lovingly written and once again so beautifully true to character. Her stories are all wonderful but my favourite would probably be Confluents
. Check out her fics HERE rayne_y_daze
writes such wonderful, mostly Ethan-centric fiction. I LOVE her Ethan!! Her Holiday Out
is a lovely heart-warming Giles/Ethan fic that will have you smiling and just leave you feeling so good! Her To Tell the Truth
is such a cleverly written Ethan and ensemble fic with spot on characterisations and wonderful witty dialogue and her Anniversary
is an incredible spine-chilling little Giles/Ethan ficlet. She is also one hell of a drabbler!!jen_nsync_landl
One of the first Spuffy authors I read and probably the first one I quickly became addicted to. 8 Little Words
is a lovely and touching little ficlet. Into the Light
is one of my all time favourite fics (but have tissues handy) and her WIPs Rewards
and When you Wish
are BOTH fantastic. Those and many more of her wonderful stories can be found on her site My Immortal
And last but certainly not least two wonderful ladies who have become such an important part of my RL as well as my online life... And ladies we are gonna have sooo
much fun in Mooloolaba next week!!!mefiant_aus
whose Unexpected Arrival
is a fabulous Spuffy fic with such an incredibly original and wonderful plot filled with twists and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat. The Call
(as with all of Mef's fics) once again has a VERY original and intriquing plot that just grabs you right from the start. Check out her fics at Puppies and Christmas
whose first fic The New Me
is a alternative Season 5 that is VERY alternative... give it a go I am sure you will enjoy it. And her new fic *shhh... secret... don't tell anyone* is going to be great!!!
Oh... and a VERY special someone I NEED to mention as she is not only a wonderful friend and my fabulous partner in crime over at good__evil
but she is also an incredibly talented and generous artist without whom my LJ and my website would be so very
dull and boring. selene2
of It Runs Even Deeper
shares her talent with so many both as the co moderator of banner_grab
and to individual authors as well. She is one of the nicest, sweetest people I have ever had the pleasure to know (even if she does try to say she is evil! *rolls eyes*)Thank you ALL for sharing your talent so generously!
Well that is it for my post... I KNOW there are more very wonderful authors out there and many more whose work I love... but a post can only be so long so I have singled out authors who are very special to me not just for their work but for their wonderful selves as well!
