beer_good_foamy: (Buffy)
So before I go offline for a bit, I thought I'd post this fic. It's an expansion of an old drabble that I always thought could use a "But then what?" to get a bit more into their characters.

Title: Nice Girls Don't Stay For Breakfast
Author: Beer Good ([personal profile] beer_good_foamy)
Fandom: Buffy, s3
Pairing: Buffy/Faith
Rating: PG13
Word count: ~900
Summary: After the mess that was Homecoming and Slayerfest '98, Faith invites Buffy back to her motel for drinks. Fast forward a few hours and Buffy's emphatically NOT freaking out, just trying to figure out the best way to sneak out of a motel bed without waking Faith up.

It felt weird, being the sneak-outer in this situation and not the sneak-outee. Not that she'd had a lot of these situations, obviously. Should she leave a note, or... OK, in her experience, correct protocol involved losing your soul and killing people, so pretty much anything she did would be better than that. Besides, Faith probably didn't want Buffy to be here when she woke up anyway. )

So I'm not on Tumblr but someone told me today is Fuffy Day, so I figured why not do something with this old plotbunny.

Title: Locked Out
Author: Beer Good ([personal profile] beer_good_foamy)
Fandom: Buffy, s5, shortly after "No Place Like Home"
Rating: PG13
Characters/Pairing: Buffy/Faith
Word count: ~1200
Notes: Written for Fuffy Day 2017. Assumes that Faith was 16 during s3 with all that that implies, I dare you to find canonical evidence I'm wrong.
Summary: Faith's turning 18 in jail, which is a good opportunity for the Council to get rid of her without having to break protocol. Unless Buffy finds time to get involved, in the midst of all the Dracula magical key sister hellgod mess.

You think you know. What you are, what's to come… you haven't even begun.

For a second, she felt the old rage stir again; she was stuck here and fucking Blondie could just walk out and go back to her life. )

It's the annual holiday fic! I felt kind of bad about last year's fic and how it anticipated some real-life events, so I went extra fluffy this time. Happy whatever, everyone!

Title: A Slayin' Song Tonight
Author: Beer Good ([personal profile] beer_good_foamy)
Fandom: Buffyverse (post-series)
Rating: PG13
Word count: 6x100
Characters: Ensemble
Summary: Five holiday decorations that can be used to slay vampires, and one vice versa. AKA the Scooby Holiday Meet-Up is about as peaceful as you'd expect.

In retrospect, renting a Cleveland hotel ballroom for the annual Scooby Holiday Meet-Up wasn't the best idea. But Buffy's tiny apartment wouldn't hold them all, and the hotel promised food, drinks and holiday paraphernalia at a very decent price (as thanks for clearing up that haunting three weeks earlier).

The vampire gang who (somewhat unwisely) cut the power and crashed the party without needing an invitation presumably weren't part of the service.

"Just once," Buffy muttered as she pulled a Christmas stocking over one vampire's face and staked another, "I'd like one holiday to go according to plan."

* * *

"Um… little help?" Dawn managed to get out as she bounced up and down on the back of the largest vampire. She wasn't sure what she'd been thinking when she tried to choke him with a holiday wreath; pine needles really weren't sharp enough to sever a vampire neck, and now he was trying to throw her off and she hated horsey rides and the eggnog she'd had wasn't helping, and -

When Spike dusted the vamp she tried for a graceful landing, but inertia disagreed and she crashed through the tree, sending angels, candy canes and baubles flying everywhere. "...Ow."

* * *

"OW! Sonofabitch!" Stepping on a bauble is painful even if you're a soulless denizen of the night. One vampire hopped around the room, knocking over the buffet table while trying to pull shards of glass out of his foot, then decided to take his rage out on the old man. "Any last words, grandpa?"

"Merry Christmas?" Giles handed him the gift Buffy had given him. "I suppose as my nemesis, this belongs to you."

The vampire ripped off the wrapping paper, took one look at the knitted sweater with reindeer motif, screamed and dusted.

Giles nodded. "I thought as much."

* * *

"Thanks, Will." Xander brushed off the ashes from the vampire that had been seconds away from a double shot of AB Harris Positive. "Also, huh. I never knew menorahs hurt vampires, but I guess...?"

Willow winced as she carefully checked the abruptly extinguished menorah for vampire-ass-related damage. "May just have been regular vampire fire allergy. It's just... I know I'm not so much with the monotheism these days, and I use crosses to fend off vampires and that's probably some sorta cultural appropriation, but it still feels disrespectful, y'know?" She carefully put it back in the window. "Right. Any more?"

* * *

The last vampire had had enough; nobody had said anything about an army of professional demon hunters. Not wanting to leave empty-handed, he grabbed one of the presents and ran for the door. He almost made it, but then something sparkly flew over his head, slipped down over him and tightened around his legs. He fell face-first, and barely had time to register that someone had landed on his back before a stake pierced his heart.

"Nice one, Blue," Faith said as she holstered the stake.

Illyria dusted off her quickly improvised tinsel lasso. "One does not mess with Texas."

* * *

"Is that it?" Buffy surveyed the damage. "OK, our security deposit's a bust. Aw, the tree."

"Yeah, a vamp did that," Dawn quickly said.

"And one threw your gift on the fire," Giles added. "There's evil for you."

Faith wrenched the remains of the tree upright. "Angel, you wanna be on top?"

Angel ignored Spike's laugh and instead gave Buffy a boost so she could tie Mr Pointy to the top of the tree. A warm glow spread from the few candles that were still lit as the gang stood around with their arms around each other. "Happy holidays, everyone."

First of all, I won some stuff at [ profile] rwsawards. First One To Turn The Wheel Is A Chicken and The Brian Situation both won awards. Thanks so much, and lots of congratulations to all the other winners - check out the complete list here, there's some absolutely fantastic stuff to be read.

Second, here's a ficlet of a pairing I don't think I've ever written. This is for [ profile] punch_kicker15's prompt Faith/Tara in the Wishverse at this [ profile] femslashbb comment ficathon. Because fuck The 100.

Title: Waylaid
Author: Beer Good ([personal profile] beer_good_foamy)
Fandom: Buffy, Wishverse
Rating: PG13
Word count: ~800
Characters/Pairing: Faith/Tara
Summary: Faith has a job to do. She's supposed to go to Sunnydale and fix what the last Slayer couldn't, or at least die trying. She shouldn't let herself get held up like this. It'll just get everyone hurt.

Faith had cashed the one-way plane ticket and spent it on leather pants, a fake ID and a three-day bender, and then for some reason (that twinge in her neck just won't stop) decided to go to Sunnydale anyway. Least she could do was check it out. Maybe even figure out a way to stop it, just so she could go back and call Diana a coward to her face. Greyhounds got her as far as Birmingham, and after a few days of hitchhiking she was picked up by a girl in a truck. )

The first of two [ profile] spook_me fills.

Title: Canaries in a Coalmine
Author: Beer Good ([personal profile] beer_good_foamy)
Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, post-series
Rating: PG13
Word count: ~1900
Characters/Pairing: Dawn, Faith
Author's Note: Written for [ profile] spook_me and the prompt "Disease"
Summary: The first symptoms of widespread amnesia mostly went unnoticed even by those not affected. No one's quite sure at what point it became a global pandemic, or how it spreads. But anything is better than nothing, Dawn thinks as they travel towards the last hope for a cure.

They can't even come up with a good name for it. Or rather, they can't stand the only name that fits it. 'Nothing', the fog that rises up out of nowhere and erases the people it afflicts, memory by memory. )

I’m sorry this is so late. This is for [ profile] femslash_minis and [ profile] aaronlisa’s prompt “Evil!Cordy/Evil!Faith - Faith isn't quite as reformed as everyone thinks, set Season Four ATS, leather” without fluff or any of those two dying.

I've rarely written Cordy and I've never written Evil!Cordy, so this was a fun challenge though I ended up deleting the whole thing and starting over at one point. I hope it works with the prompt; I like my evil a bit ambiguous, and there are bits here that look semi-fluffy, but...

Title: Grant Me The Serenity
Author: Beer Good ([personal profile] beer_good_foamy)
Fandom: Angel, AU post "Salvage"
Rating: PG13
Warning: Character death
Word count: ~1000
Summary: Things don’t go quite as planned when Faith goes up against the Beast and Angelus, and Cordelia finds herself alone with an unrepentant Slayer out for blood. Luckily, Cordelia knows how to improvise.

...To know the difference )

First of all, "Total Perspective Vortex" was nominated at the Willowy Goodness Awards, along with a bunch of other very good fics. Thanks a lot!

Secondly, here’s a fic inspired by a discussion with [ profile] brutti_ma_buoni a little while ago, about how Faith would react to losing at various games like Rock-paper-scissors, Monopoly, etc.

Fandom: Buffy, post-series

Warnings/Notes: Mention of character death and damnation.
Word count: ~3300

I should probably point out that this story, despite some similarities, is not in continuity with my earlier story Good Girls Go To Heaven (Bad Girls Go Anywhere).

OK, one of the fics I needed to get done. This is written for [ profile] tiny_white_hats's 10th anniversary comment ficathon, and [ profile] daria234's prompt:

So here's the other 3 sentence fic I mentioned I wanted to expand upon. It ended up somewhat longer. This came out of [personal profile] passionfruit_kisses' prompt "Buffy/Faith, not even a proper Apocalypse".

Might as well get this posted before I rewrite the ending yet again. Not the brightest and happiest fic I've written. I blame February.

Title: All But Left To Hunger

When she gets there, the battle is over. )

Apparently 'tis the season to nominate, and I'm not one to complain.

Strawberries was nominated for Best Willow/Other Female Author, Best Willow/Other Female Fic, Best Comedy, and Cloudbusting for Best Fluff. Thanks so much to whoever nominated me!

Also, here's a drabble for this week's [ profile] open_on_sunday challenge, "Unusual".

Help Yourself

"Yo, Wes." Faith and Buffy entered the library. "We were just attacked by some freaky-ass demon that called B 'Delilah' and tried to stab her with a knife."

"Oh dear," Wesley mused. "It would appear you've encountered a Tom Jones demon."

"A what? Do you know what that is, B?"

Buffy shook her head while checking her new coat for damage. "Nope. Must be something new."

"Well, actually," Wesley tried to suppress a giggle, "It's not unusual."

The two teenagers stared at him, non-plussed.

"I mean, I'll... look through the books and see what I can find," he added sheepishly.
beer_good_foamy: (Wild as the wind)
So some people have very generously nominated me for some awards:

Upon The Edge Of No Escape and Drive It Like You Stole It are nominated for the [ profile] absence_oflight!
Absence of Light Awards
And 67 Characters In Search Of A Memory, Hitting Things And A Whole Lotta Jack D (Among Other Things), and the meta Buffy, the Vampire Slayer vs Buffy The Vampire Slayer have been nominated at [ profile] wicked_awards.

Thank you so much! Also, make sure to check out [ profile] buffyversetop5, which is running for a while yet.

Also, [ profile] open_on_sunday is up again, yay! Here's a drabble for this week's prompt "Late".

A Ship, The Black Freighter




For years, Faith knew exactly where she missed her shot. The day after Buffy killed Gwendolyn Post, and dropped by Faith's motel room to talk. There were about five seconds when Faith could have asked her to stay. They might have talked, fought, or... whatever. She could have stayed, or left town, done anything. But the moment passed, that was that, and then it was always too late.

Yet now she's driving a bus full of Slayers across the desert as the sun rises.

"What are you smiling about?" Dawn asks.

Faith, unaware that she was; "...Nothing."

ETA: Woah, just checked the news. Hope everyone in the path of angry nature is keeping safe.

Coming off the meme I posted yesterday, one ficlet and one drabble.

Rating: PG13... possibly edging into R, note warnings
Warnings: Underage drinking, underage sex, sex under mystical and/or drunken influence, a certain amount of violence.
Summary: You didn't seriously think Ripper went home and went to bed after the events of "Band Candy", did you?
Written for [personal profile] snickfic's crackficathon and [ profile] penny_lane_42/[personal profile] snickfic's prompt for Band Candy!Giles/Faith.

There are things Faith can handle. Vampires? No problem. Stuck-up blonde Slayers? No problem. Dealing with getting your Watcher killed? Work in progress, but that's why the good Lord made biker bars that don't card. With bikers. Who are also not a problem, she's known how to make them fight each other since before she had superpowers. However, a stuffy (though admittedly cute) English gentleman plonking down on the barstool next to you while two guys with facial tattoos are outside fighting over who gets that seat? Might be a problem. )

This is the second time I’ve written Faith/Lilah recently, and it’s not really a pairing that lends itself to happy flufftimes. So this got a bit depressing, sorry about that.

OK, so here's a plotbunny I've been poking at for a while. I've tried to work it into both series and post-series fic, as drama and as comedy, as drabble and as longfic... So I finally decided to post it tonight because it coincides with Mark reaching "Homecoming", and he has to go and point out the exact detail that this fic depends on. Gnnn... Oh well. Anyways, here we go.
