Oldschoolfic Spring/Summer 2010 Ficathon  
The oldschoolfic Spring/Summer event queue has been released!  This is the community for out-of-production fandoms.  There are unfortunately no FK stories this time, but we did get six stories in five fandoms (and I'm wondering whether we're not missing a pinch-hit or two, as I match up the names).  I would like to recommend these entries as particularly worth your time:
  • Nancy Drew: "a heart like broken glass" by ndnickerson, NC-17, 7386 words.  This story begins on the day Nancy graduates from law school and reveals a character-explicating trauma that broke up Nancy and Ned while they were undergraduates.  (Spoiler. This story might be a wrong choice for people with * childbirth or fertility * triggers.)
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer: "When Dawn is Due" by malinaldarose, PG-13, 3925 words.  This story wades into the mire of sixth season, as Dawn tries again to fix her broken world, this time by getting Tara and Willow back together.  Of course her attempt goes awry.  Dawn, Tara, Willow, Buffy, Spike and Oz all get dialogue; Xander and Anya also appear.

I received this Highlander prompt from karrenia_rune: "Duncan & Richie & Joe & Charlie, 'the company you keep.'"  In response, I wrote "Present Company" (PG).  Of the prompts I submitted, karrenia_rune picked my Highlander prompt: "Duncan/Tessa, 'Sometimes a fresh start is the best thing in the world.'"  She wrote "Just Another Manic Monday" (PG) in response.

I would like to thank my beta-reader, [personal profile] batdina, and also [personal profile] leela_cat, whose conversation sparked the story I wrote!

You're welcome. Your story reminded me how fond I am of Tara, and informed me that I am actually still furious with Willow.

I really wish Joss had found some way to make Willow evil other than killing Tara.
