happy happy me. I've finished my tybaltfic. You can read it on the BMB ML or here. Thanks dilly and 'ginia for commenting on it here when it was just a work in progress, and Rin for your help.

Okay, the other one was fucky. you know it, i know it, let's just pretend it didn't happen.
I've moved the design of the story a little.
the p.o.v. changes were disorienting. they've been removed & replaced.
the voices of the characters were indistinct. i've removed & repaired that problem, too.

this goes against canon. i've given tybalt a life before mikhail. that'll come out in later bits...
this is a twelve-part series. i've got the first two written, more or less, and i'm using the... er... alpha-copy (deleted yesterday, praise jeebus) as a reference. this story is going to go places. a lot of places. probably ten thousand words worth of places.

parts 1, 2, and 3 are going to stay pg-13. little bit of strong language, but nothing you wouldn't hear at the theatre.

things are going to go on from there.

i've put the title, artist, and album of all the songs. the lyrics are the *only* thing in italics. the formatting will likely stay the same in each piece. the copyright to the songs go to the respective artists, no infringement, blah-blah-blah. and i know the musical genres are outside of the land of the bmb, but i'm in charge here. tybalt is also not fucking cyan in the strip, so... yeah... =P

first verse. cyan's p.o.v.

Okay, you know how there's a Society for the Defense of Duo's Intelligence? We need one of those for Skids.

Skids is not an idiot. He is not retarded. Yet so often when I read ML fics I get the impression that he hasn't progressed past the age of six or seven. Reading this, especially if it's a romantic fic, I am turned off, because he's not a fully developed HUMAN BEING let alone character, and any romance seems like child molestation.

In these fics, Skids' language is over-simplified. He is sweet to the point of being revolting. He doesn't know what he wants and if it's a Cy/Skids fic (which 98% of the time it is), he is never the one to resolve the angst.

Posted by:winterknight.
Time:8:04 pm.
Have webspace?

Have email?

Spend too much time online?

I'm putting together a list of email addresses of folks who meet the above requirements who'd be willing to host and post when Keen is down. i figure having 5-10 addresses will cover everything. that way, Sandra can simply email the list with the strip and head for school knowing that one of us will get to it. basically, all you'll need to do is put the strip up (either as a jpg if you can remote host images or an html file if not) and post about it on the Keenspace forum.

let me know if you can do it. :)

here's an excerpt from my current nameless work in progress. If anyone would like to make any comments about it with regards to spelling, punctuation, grammar, vocabulary, structure, characterisation, anything like that, PUHLEASE feel free.

A few things you should know, first off.

- It's TiH. Therefore, vamps and winged!Harl
- The action is generally set in the TiH situation. Therefore not completely accurate, but thanks to Sandra, as accurate as it's ever going to get with me not having read it all *s*
- Tybalt/Harley, writing in first person Tybalt POV
- Harley's a little... well... bonkers. But quiet quirky bonkers at this stage, not painting symbols on the wall with his own blood bonkers ^_~

Hey all. Immi here. Fanfic writer. Notorious for being fascinated with odd pairings.... in pretty much whatever fandom I write in. Which at the moment is BMB (natch, or else I wouldn't be here) and Buffy. I've got... erm... *does a quick count* five BMB fics to my name... and then there's the two stories that are a wild AU on TIH, known affectionately in my head as the Poison-verse because I just can't come up with a title for that series..... and then there's any number of random, half-finished dabblings... including some Mik/Cy (which is my pet 'ship) and then I've got a bit of a bizzare takeoff on Sandra's whole Nacolepsy thing and..... I think that's it...

So... um.... hi! ^_^

'tis Nightbird and/or Megs. I should really settle on which name I'm using. *sigh*

I write fic and original. I have two and a half BmB pieces to my name but mainly I write Buffy. I'm a slash slut. I run L'Ange De la Mort and I'm the Athos of the Four Slasherettes.

I also seem to have a mental age of five at this moment in time.

My first question.......how many people are in this so far?

Maybe we each should introduce ourselves. 'Cause I only know Av and Sandra. But I want to make more friends, I do I do I do!

I'm the Dragon, alias Virginia, alias 'Ginia, alias WereDragon. I'm having a good day so far. And I've written ::counts:: three BMB fics so far. BMB is the only fanfiction I've written, because up until recently I concentrated solely on original writing.

I started writing BMB fanfiction because ideas started coming into my head, and they wanted to be written down. I hesitated, because I hadn't done fanfiction before, and because when it was finished I couldn't claim credit. But there're just so many possibilities with this set of characters. And it broadens my abilities to be able to work with another person's characters......hrm, while that's true, it's a bullshit reason. I just love 'em so much, I wanted a little time to make them dance to a tune of my own.

Tell me about YOU, pretty please with a strawberry on Harley!

Subject:Skids and the swirlie
Posted by:avaaricious.
Time:8:51 pm.
Mood: geeky.

I was trying to think of something to post and this seemed like a good a subject as any. And as an odd reason, I am relating it to a question I got asked the other day about why I think Skids doesn't notice Cy's got a bit of a thing for him. So, er, from those two seemingly juxtaposed subjects, I have the basis for an opinion.

Yeah, Skids was overweight and had braces when he first started school. He was teased and bullied (regular schoolyard bullying, etc) until Cya came to his defence, and they formed a firm friendship. Because despite Cya's need for coolness in his exterior, he is a genuinely good guy.

But we all know what Skids looks like now... let's face it; he's gorgeous. I believe the stigma of being picked on and made to feel unimportant sticks with him, though. He lost the weight (i think got contacts, Sandrita confirm/deny?), tanned up a little... and while that has the power to change some people, Skids has generally stayed unchanged. He's still the little guy who got his head shoved down the toilet by a group of bullies. And so doing that, there's an element of 'what could anyone possibly find attractive about ME?' thing happening.

So, to get to the reason why I'm mentioning this in relation to cy/skids... I think he's always counted on Cya. Cyan hasn't let him down, and has been his friend since they met. So he just doesn't SEE it. Yes, there was the almost-kiss, but if you want to take it another way from the majority of cy/skids shippers (unrequited blah blah), he was doing something for his friend who hadn't been kissed. The 'here, pretend I'm a hot chick' thing was for Cya's comfortableness, he's the 'hetero' one after all.

In my opinion, Skids may know what Cya's thoughts are (there's no denying Cy is crushing - obviously) but he is oblivious because he either isn't looking for it from Cyanide, or he doesn't *wish* to see.

Ookay, that was possibly a little more disjointed than I would've liked, but I did my best :-) All the opinions contained are mine alone, feel free to agree/disagree at your leisure. Remember, when it comes down to it, only Sandra knows for sure. I'm jus' speculatin' ^__^

Subject::shoves open the door and staggers in:
Posted by:winterknight.
Time:8:16 am.
sheesh. ever thought of installing a lift? :drops bags of groceries on the counter:

i brought all the necessary ingredients for a coronary. ice cream, fritos, whipped cream... ooops! how did THAT get in there? :hides the whipped cream: that's for... later. ahem.

okay. what else have i got? ooh! an unfinished Allen/Harley fic. i also want to write some Tybalt fic but i don't know if i have enough of a handle on the guy. i think i've got Allen down okay (meh. no double entendre.)... i have to find an angle on Tybalt that's not cliched but sticks to Sandra's BMB Tybalt vision. also on the block, more Tabitha fic. I wouldn't slash Tybalt and Tabitha but i would love a showdown or two.

i'm holding off on new fic until i see how this lastest drama plays out. i don't have the inside scoop that Av does, so i'm going to wait and see.

so. how is everyone? creative?

and with those words, Rin actually figured out what I'd been doing wrong.. *sheepish grin*

Anyways, here we are... woo.

Hiya guys. I don't know what to say that isn't in the userinfo. I would like this place to be somewhere writers can come and join to get a little assist with writing. Whether it's with questions about plot, help with betaing, opinions, workshopping, etc. Oh, and big on the character discussion, too!

The watchwords here are constructive critique.

Don't be afraid. If you have a question, say it. If you have a comment, say it. If you think it, you might as well tell us. Critique is not the same as flaming, and flaming will not be tolerated. We all know the difference. But having said that, don't hold your opinions in. If you have comments to make to someone; do it.

Maybe I'm doing this the wrong way around, but membership is restricted atm. I don't want an influx of people that just want to read fic, or just read stuff that's posted here. It could be a pipedream, but I want people involved. This is a community, after all. So at the moment, I'm only adding people who I know have written fic. It'll probably expand after that, but that's the way it is right now.

Okay, that's enough from me. Thanks, and welcome to apartment 666. Beware, Tabitha is watching... grr...
