Greetings from poll maestro Rebcake, who says:

Seasonal Spuffy has been extra seasonal this past year, thanks to all of you. In additonal to the two regular rounds, the community threw open the virtual doors on the first day of summer, fall, winter and spring, and everyone was invited! There was lovely new Spuffy fanwork to celebrate the turn of each season, and it was delightful.

We promised a year of this truly seasonal approach, and before we start on the next round the mods want to know what the contributors would like to happen in the future.


Please let us know your preferred Seasonality of Spuffy over HERE. :) If you don't have a LiveJournal account, you can vote in a comment on Rebcake's LiveJournal post. Login is not currently necessary for commenting.

I'm going to leave a list of links here so we can find the equinox free-for-all entries later. It will live in the index post tag, which we can use to browse overviews of past rounds and free-for-all days back to, oh, 2008. ^^

Artist's Notes: Hello everyone, I made a banner and some icons, can be used wherever you want but I think it could work better for any forum. This is very simple but I wanted to share something new with you and useful for other places too....

Title: Ostara Blessings
Author: fancyflautist 
Era/season/setting: S6/S7
Rating: PG (minor language)
Summary: Willow enlists the help of the Scoobies for a big abundance ritual for Ostara.  Meanwhile, Buffy is trying to push forward in her relationship with Spike. Featuring grass facts, a hell-bunny, and an original Wiccan ritual!

Fic: Anywhere But Here

Title: Anywhere But Here
Author: [personal profile] thewiggins

Season/Era: A Season 2 that veered sharply from canon around "Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered." Set shortly after that episode.
Rating: R
Warnings: Spike/Dru (at least nominally), referenced physical and psychological torture (none of which actually happens during the course of the story), vamp!Buffy, suicidal ideation, and canon-typical ableism
Word Count: 8,163
Summary: Buffy’s the reason Spike’s miserable, the reason he’s in the chair, the reason Angelus is soulless and sleeping with Spike’s girlfriend. But at the moment, she’s also the only person he can really talk to. Shared unhappiness is bringing them closer, but is there anything more to it than that?
Author's Note: This was originally started for the Night and Day round of Seasonal Spuffy, but I wasn't able to finish it at the time. Thanks so much to [personal profile] thenewbuzwuzz for her exemplary service as beta! Any remaining errors are, of course, my own and conscrit is always enthusiastically welcomed.
Also, just a heads up if my summary and warnings don't make it clear, this fic definitely deals with dark themes. But this is a fic about people bonding in difficult circumstances and is ultimately more or less hopeful in its outlook. I hope to eventually continue this story, but for now this is meant to work reasonably well as a stand alone.

The 26th round of [community profile] seasonal_spuffy, a Spuffy stuff creation&appreciation party, will run for three weeks from Thursday, May 2, until Wednesday, May 22, 2019.

SITES. For this round, you can post in our LiveJournal community or right here on Dreamwidth, or both as you prefer! Links to all entries will be available during the round on both sites and also on tumblr and Facebook. We will post some information on Elysian Fields and BuffyForums, as well.

THEME. Our theme this round will be Dark Carnival! Thank you to [personal profile] rahirah for the suggestion! Props also to [livejournal.com profile] garnigal and [personal profile] javajunkie247, whose themes put up a good fight in the poll, and thank you to everyone else for suggesting and voting. As always, creators are free to interpret the theme however they want or do something else altogether.

SIGNUP. You may sign up for a posting day of your very own by leaving a comment at the signup post on LiveJournal. (Logging in is not necessary for that.) We're also offering some free-for-all days on which anybody may post without signup, as long as they do it the Seasonal Spuffy way: May 6, May 12, and May 18–19.

FORMAT. Plan to create an original, never-before-posted Spike/Buffy fanwork to share with the community! :) We never met a medium we didn't like. Here's an incomplete list of things people have posted on Seasonal Spuffy to general acclaim: fic, drabbles, drawings, playlists, poetry, manips, mood boards, wallpapers, WIP chapters, artwork resources, icons, comics, fanvids, maps, magnetic poetry kits, puzzle games, polls, podfic, Other Art... you get the picture. Anything goes. For the few formats of fanworks that are impossible to get into a LiveJournal/Dreamwidth post, posting a link is fine.

Please check the rules before you begin. Most are fairly standard, but be aware that we don't allow all-human AUs. All-penguin AUs are enthusiastically welcomed.

Have fun! Any questions, feel free to ask.

You have been active voters, but there were so many good theme suggestions that we have a three-way tie. Let's put the leading options in a room and let them wrestle it out!


The poll will be up until Friday noon, New York time, or until we have a winner, whichever takes longer.
 
As before, you can vote in a comment instead.
 
If you already voted for one of these themes and you don't recast your vote, I'll assume you haven't changed your mind. (But the graph will be prettier if you do vote again.)
 
Thank you for your patience! This is the final thing we need to take care of before we can open signup. :)

[personal profile] thenewbuzwuzz
We got sooo many fun ideas from you all! <3 Now it's time to choose the one we like best. The theme will be a uniting prompt for the whole round, and creators can interpret it in their contributions if it inspires them.

Please head over here to vote for the theme of Seasonal Spuffy Round 26. If you're not logged in to LiveJournal, you can vote in a comment under the linked post. Thanks!

Signup will open later this week. :)

Time to think about what else we want to do this spring, apart from that lone free-for-all day on March 20th! ;) Your mods here at [community profile] seasonal_spuffy are planning the Spring 2019 Round, and we'd love to have your input to help decide where, when, and how long it is to be.

The round planning poll is available over here on LiveJournal and alternatively on Google Forms. Please only fill out one of the poll versions. Thank you!

Though it may not feel that way, spring is within reach! And you know what that means. :)

The spring equinox, March 20th, is going to be a Seasonal Spuffy free-for-all day.

We welcome fic, art, and most other things you could dream of making, as long as it's Spike/Buffy, it was made by you, and it's not been posted anywhere else yet. Please see our posting guidelines for details.

You're free to post right here on Dreamwidth, or in our LiveJournal community, or both!

No signup is needed to participate in this one-day event. Just show up and post if it sounds fun. :)

This free-for-all day doesn't have an official theme. Anything Spuffy goes! That being said, if you're in need of inspiration, consider:

optional prompts )

If nothing inspires you just yet, do not despair! A month is a long time, and the nice thing about free-for-all days is you don't have to commit to anything at all.

If you could use some help with LiveJournal, try the pinned tutorial; if you have questions about Dreamwidth or anything else, feel free to contact the mods, e.g. by commenting on this post or emailing sspuffy@gmail.com.

One last note: if you're from Elysian Fields and you want all your EF friends to know about this event, please trust that we will take care of announcing it. Because of the new EF shoutbox guidelines, the best way to help us spread the word on Elysian Fields is to leave general announcements to us. Thank you! :)

Have fun! And stay tuned, because soon it will be time to start planning the full spring round, as well. \o/

Title: Closer to Heaven
Author: Passion4Spike
Season/Setting: Season 6, The day after 'Once More with Feeling'
Rating: NC17 (NSFW applies to later chapters which are not done yet -- check on EF later for them)
Inspired by: The wonderful banner done by pfeifferpack 
during the Road Trip SS round 25

Summary: Buffy had kissed him. All ‘Gone With The Wind’, with the rising music, and the rising … everything. And then she’d pulled away, the singing demon’s spell apparently broken. Spike had released her, not willingly, but he knew he couldn’t hold her. What had that meant? That kiss? He had to find out, but he had to be smart about this. Not just run in in a billow of smoke and demand answers. That wouldn’t do at all. He needed a plan. A good plan. This was too important to bugger up.

Title: 'Twas the Night Before Christmas
Creator: teragramm
Rating: G

Artist's Notes:
Since it's very close to Christmas, I thought I would make a Christmas themed banner based on the poem "A Visit From St Nicholas" by Clement Clarke Moore. The banner is specifically based on the line... And mamma in her 'kerchief, and I in my cap, Had just settled our brains for a long winter's nap.

If you are unfamiliar with the poem, you can view it here.

Below the cut is the banner. Enjoy!
