So, the current Jossverse challenge ends on May 4th, and the results for it have thus far been lame! C'mon, people, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, Serenity, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, and Dollhouse. There is no shortage of a selection in fandoms or pairings! Choose and rec!

In other news, the Shipper Manifestos have been awesome, and peanutbutterer is working on a masterlist as we speak. I hope many of you got some interesting insights into why people ship what they do, and hopefully some recs too. We should be doing another round of Shipper Manifestos in another six months. ;)

Now, onwards!

Take Your Time, By Carrie (PG-13)

Fandom Category: Buffy, the Vampire Slayer
Pairing: Willow/Angel, Willow/Angelus (one-sided obsession), Willow/Spike
Fic Title: Take Your Time
Author: Carrie
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: AU, Epic, drama,
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: So, I normally would not be interested in a Willow/Angel(us) or Willow/Spike story. At all. But damn if this author doesn't make me entirely reconsider my stance on this, while writing an epic that *gasp* stays true to all the characters present. I know what you're thinking: a Willow/Angelus fic in character? But, dude, read it to understand. Angelus isn't suddenly a good vampire, and Willow never stops ringing true to the hesitant Wiccan we see on screen during the first few years of BtVS.

The story's idea is pretty awesome - Willow tries to do a spell, Post-Becoming, to save Angel but accidently gets sent back in time to before Angel was sired as a vampire. Spike gets dragged along for the ride. So, then, they're trapped in a time/world not their own, and things unfold in a complicated way. The story is looooongg and plotty, and there's a sequel that is, I think, left abandoned. I still recommend reading it anyway, because I like how this story has repercussions and changes the 'verse.

Shipper Manifesto: Kara Thrace/Lee Adama

This is so horribly late I'm not even sure if I ought to be posting it, but ... here we go. My sincere apologies for sneaking in way past the deadline! I could give the standard excuses (real life, illness, technical difficulties, which were all factors), but nobody is interested in those, I know, so let's just go ahead.

Fandom: Battlestar Galactica (2003)
Pairing: Kara “Starbuck” Thrace/Lee “Apollo” Adama
