Title TGIS (Thank God It's Sunday)
Author [livejournal.com profile] xlivvielockex
Rating PG-13
Word Count 565
Characters/Pairing (if any) Buffy/Cordy
WARNING: AU
A/N: Buffy and Cordy are soccer moms by day, contract killers by night. Not beta'ed. There is also a large fanart that accompanies this so please click for larger.

“You’ve got carpool on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday this week.”

Buffy pushed the cold scrambled eggs around her plate. Sunday mornings were quickly becoming routine and tedious. Is this what all those jokes about marriage and lesbian bed death mean? She was already bored of Cordy’s rather unique calendar system for their lives and they were only up to E. Cordy had explained a million times that carpool duties went under E because they used the Escalade for carpool days but Buffy was more interested at the end of the alphabet. When they finally got to Z that is when it got interesting.

While I have been reading LJ, I haven't been participating much in terms of commenting because of graduate school slash real life. But it seems to me, in my very narrow flist reading, that there has been some debate the past few weeks over Spuffy.

As in do people who ship Spuffy side with Spike more or Buffy more? Do they hate Buffy? Do they hate Spike? Do they woobify Spike too much? I could go on and on. I love seeing these kind of debates, that we are still talking in this fandom about these things.

It really got me to thinking about Spuffy lately as I drive the 90 minutes to and 90 minutes back from campus. This is the poll I came up with, the one that I think really needs to be asked of the Spuffy fandom (and of those who think about Spuffy as a ship, positive or negative)

Please answer honestly )

Feel free to expand on your answers in comments.

In setting up a new relationship and ending an old one, where is the line between realization and ship/char bashing?

What I mean is let’s say I’m writing a fic where C2 and C3 get together but it is set in a season where C1 and C2 are together. If C2 realizes the relationship is not working out, is trying to justify the breakup to themselves, where is the line where it is serving the story vs. bashing? Is there a line? (And feel free to link this so I get a variety of replies, not just from friends, though you all are A-MAH-ZING)

Also, anyone have some time to beta one maybe two 5 things fics for me this weekend, preferably someone who has a good Spike voice cause my Spike voice is lousy?

Before I begin my review, there are a few things I need to get off my chest. First off, I LIKE the idea of remakes. (Notice IDEA). They offer additional source material to draw from for fannish activities, they bring new people to fandom, and they rekindle interest in the older source material. Sometimes they are horrible (Starsky and Hutch), sometimes they are decent (Charlie's Angels), sometimes they are awesome (Star Trek. The whole AU idea is genius). So when it comes to remakes, I am not one of these people who screams NO! (Like with the possible Buffy remake). As a HUGE fan of the original Fright Night, I know a few other fans were not happy with the remake or even the suggestion of one.

Second, the elephant in the room. Marti Noxon wrote the screenplay. And while she gets blamed for the attempted rape in Seeing Red, at the end of the day, Joss had to approve that storyline. I'm not absolving blame from Noxon in the slightest but I think several reviews I have read are trying to use their dislike of Noxon from BTVS to color their review of Fright Night. I'm not.

For those who want to remain spoiler free I will just say this GO SEE THIS MOVIE )

EXCLUSIVE: Charisma Carpenter: "You Need To Get It Out That I'm A Proud Latina!"

By Lee Hernandez | 07/20/2011 - 20:10

Her name is Charisma Carpenter and she’s best known for playing all-American cheerleader Cordelia Chase on the hit TV show, Buffy the Vampire Slayer. But there’s something many people don’t know about Charisma—she’s Latina! “I think it’s the best kept secret ever,” said the sweet actress, whose grandfather was born in Spain. “You need to get it out that I’m a proud Latina!”

Charisma says she’s been trying to tell people she’s Latina for years—but they don’t believe her. “They’re not buying it,” she says. “I feel a little rejected by the Latina community. I say that in jest—I don’t sincerely mean it. But I mean…a little bit.”

The talented actress, who has a huge fan base for her work on Buffy and its spinoff, Angel, thinks she knows why people don’t believe she’s Latina. ”I guess I’m too white, too pale,” she says. “I guess they’ve never seen me tan…I don’t know.”

The 40-year-old actress says she wasn’t raised speaking Spanish—but there’s a reason for that. “My grandfather had a pretty terrible experience being in America and being from Spain,” she says sounding a bit more serious. “He came to this country as an immigrant with his family. He was a crop picker: strawberries, cotton, all that kind of stuff. And what would happen back in those days is that parents would go away and send their small children to a boarding house or an orphanage.”

Charisma says it must have been a crooked operation because her abuelo was smuggled out of the orphanage in the middle of the night, with his aunt, and adopted out to an American family who mistreated, mocked, and humiliated them. “{They} thought it was so precious and adorable that they spoke Spanish. They would make them sing in Spanish in front of their friends. Their friends would come over and they were the entertainment, so to speak,” she says.

Charisma says the ordeal was very painful for her grandfather. “He was embarrassed by it, so he chose to forget the {Spanish} language,” she says. “He refused to speak it. So my parents weren’t raised speaking Spanish.”

Still, Charisma says she managed to learn Spanish on her own. “I took Spanish since I was in the sixth grade and I lived in Mexico for a couple of years {her dad relocated there for work} when I was in high school,” she says. “I went to a school that had a strong Latino environment in Southern San Diego—about six miles from the border, so I {grew up} in the culture.”

This weekend, Charisma says she’s attending a Latino film festival in support of the new film, Without Men, which stars Latinas Eva Longoria, Judy Reyes, and Kate Del Castillo. “I’m going to support Eva!” she says enthusiastically.

Hey people!

I am still alive, I know some of you were doubting. Grad school has pretty much killed any attempt at fandom or a social life. I apologize in advance for neglecting everyone on LJ. Things are easing up as we move into term paper season so that is good for me to catch up. I have WAY too many comments to reply to so if you get a reply from something you posted three months to me, sorry. :)

Really quick, I know I have a few RPers on my list. Is there a community for displaced characters? Like if a character was in a game, the game died, they want to get into a game again? Or any communities where a character could put themselves out there for one-on-one play? This is a Buffyverse character, if that helps. Let me know.

I actually had time to read a fic this week, which was awesome, and now you should read it too! I already recced it on Tumblr but here you go, if you aren't following me over there Ceteris Paribus (All Else Being Equal) by [livejournal.com profile] beer_good_foamy

Here's what I wrote for the rec )

Also, if you want, I uploaded Plants vs Zombies, a computer game if anyone wants it and Veronika Decides to Die. Enjoy!

Lastly, under the cut, a hilarious Buffy video that [livejournal.com profile] coalitiongirl linked on Tumblr.

Prepare to laugh )
xlivvielockex: (Charisma Gay Ass)
Charisma had her own Q&A panel at the Wizard World New England Comic Con. She answered a lot of questions about her time on Buffy and Angel. I don't have a transcript yet but I will try to do it this weekend and add it the post.

I know I was going to pimp someone/something else but I totally forgot now. :( I'm still so tired from my weekend and the comment!fail that happened while I was working (some of you know what I'm talking about). If you don't want people to comment with opposing viewpoints, then f-lock it or ask fandom newsletters not to link to it you know?

[livejournal.com profile] anythingbutgrey posted this fabulous essay about Angel's character growth and was wondering about cross-posting. I was just going to send her a list of the places I pimp but then I thought, my flist could probably benefit and add to the list. So I'm posting it here.

It is broken up into categories (icons, fic, communities, other) and then I have a short one or two words about what you can pimp there (ATS, BTVS, char-specific, etc). I hope it's helpful to everyone.

The best promotion is self-promotion )
xlivvielockex: (ATS: Wes RAWR!)
So you might remember this past weekend I contacted [livejournal.com profile] stop_plagiarism about some fics that seemed oddly familiar. (Original post here).

Well, after doing some digging, [livejournal.com profile] stop_plagiarism has determined that [livejournal.com profile] orbofthesulah is a plagiarist. Now, some of you are new but in the past, I was plagiarized (I mean, I have a tag for it!). It's not fun and it's something I can't stand. That is why I do firmly believe in public shaming these people. Sometimes, it helps, they stop their stealing ways, delete their LJs, etc. Sometimes it doesn't. But to me, it's something important to note.

Here is the report on [livejournal.com profile] stop_plagiarism. I find her responses very telling. She clearly doesn't think that stealing is wrong (And one look at her Tumblr, that much is clear. A ton of fics posted without ANY credit or link backs)

So yes, [livejournal.com profile] orbofthesulah aka thegirlinquestion on Tumblr is a plagiarist. And honestly, I never would have found out if she didn't post part of a plagiarised fic on Tumblr and someone reblogged it.

If she is on your LJ or Tumblr, I would suggest deleting her right away as she stole videos and graphics as well. (Stop Plagiarism doesn't cover those, sadly). She doesn't look like she is above from stealing from everyplace she can. I've still got some other people helping me, as it seems most of her fics are stolen from other places. I'm hoping we can fatten up the case.
