The Spring 2018 round will start on Friday, May 25 and run until Sunday, June 10, plus a special free-for-all day on May 19.
As before, you can post on LiveJournal, Dreamwidth, or both. If you're not comfortable with LJ or DW, you can participate via tumblr or email instead (more info at the start of the round). We will crosspost links so that readers/ art lovers can keep track of all entries via LJ, DW, tumblr, and perhaps even elsewhere; stay tuned.

Posting dates for this round will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. You may sign up for a posting day of your own by leaving a comment below. Please try to pick a date that is not already assigned, although days can be shared if enough people sign up. We're also offering a bunch of FREE-FOR-ALL dates on which anybody may post without signup, as long as they do it the Seasonal Spuffy way.

Our theme this round will be Night and Day. Thank you to gillo for the suggestion! As always, creators are welcome to interpret the theme however they want or ignore it altogether. Particularly on May 19, the anniversary of Becoming, we encourage you to post anything that has to do with the season 2 finale, whether or not it's related to the main theme of the round.

Plan to create an ORIGINAL, never-before-posted fanwork (fic, art, vid, mix, poetry, recs, comics, meta, etc.) to share with the community. Please check the rules before you begin. Most are fairly standard, but be aware that ALL-HUMAN AUs are not allowed.

One last thing — we're looking for a new mod! Let us know if you'd like to help spread the good news of Spuffy on your favorite site that isn't LiveJournal, or maybe on a couple of those.

Survey says we want the round to have a theme. :)
So what should this round be all about? Feel free to comment with your suggestions.
We are going to have a small anniversary event separately, so it's up to you if the main round shall be anniversary-themed or not.

*We have enough suggestions now. Thank you!

Is Lent over, already? Ooopsie. If we're going to Spring for Spuffy, it's getting late!

Did you know that May 19 will be the 20th anniversary of Becoming, Part 2, aka the beginning of a beautiful friendship partnership slightly-less-adversarial-relationship not-killing-each-other-just-this-once semi-cooperative journey for Buffy and Spike? Well, it is! It's also been 15 years since the exciting televised conclusion of their story. That story continues on in the imaginations of many, and specifically in the pages of this community! Please let your mods know what you'd like to do to celebrate!

To start off amnesty month, I have six banners behind the cut. Some of these go back as far as 2009.

Starting January 1st, it will be amnesty month here at seasonal_spuffy. If any of your art work here on seasonal_spuffy was replaced by the ugly black photobucket box, you can repost the artwork during the month of January. Any questions, just ask!

The month of January will be Art Amnesty Month here at seasonal_spuffy. Art Amnesty Month is for all of those artist, who lost their past seasonal_spuffy entries due to Photobucket stopping third party hosting.

So, any past post that has been replaced with that ugly black box, can be reposted starting January 1st through January 31st. This amnesty also includes any fic banners that were lost.

Please let any of your friends who don't visit lj or dw, that often, know about Art Amnesty Month. We would love to get as many as possible, of the "lost" Spuffy works of art, reposted.

If you have any questions, just ask!
 
 
One Step Away

Thank you to everyone for another great round! For all your catching up and reference needs, slaymesoftly and I present links to everything that was posted on round 23 - Fall 2017.
Please let me know if something of yours isn’t where it should be or is mislabeled.
WIPs and NC-17 entries are marked in the list. Some great WIPs were started and continued this round! They're already delightful - don't miss out, and let's make the authors feel appreciated so they want to write more for us soon...

And Fear Finds Nothing Left to Mend, Part I
By Barb C.

Rating: T
Setting: Post-Gift AU (Barbverse)
Pairing: Buffy/Spike
Synopsis: Knowing that the Slayer has hard decisions to make is one thing. Being the subject of one is quite another.
Author’s notes: This story takes place in the same universe as "Raising In the Sun," "Necessary Evils," and "A Parliament of Monsters." It immediately precedes "To Lie Down With Wolves" and "Every Silver Lining Has A Touch of Gray," and it's pretty damn angsty, folks. I'll be posting the rest of it on my journal as I write it.

Last post to the community for now. All future chapters (as well as the two already posted here) will be available on my own DW or LJ, or on any of the archives at which I post: AO3, FF.net, Elysian Fields, and the Bloodshedverse. And, of course, when it's completed, it will have its own page on my website: Spuffy Stuff.org.

But, for now, here is Chapter Three of All About the Mission (sequel/part 2 of IWSHLY)

Title: Just To Reach You
Author: sunAlso
Rating: R (M on AO3)
Era: Post-Series
Warnings: Adult language, non-explicit sexual situations
Catnip: Established relationship
Summary: Now that the first rush of being together is over, Spike and Buffy find that they still have a lot to learn about each other.
A/N: For this fic I'm moving a few things around, so assume that AtS S5 and some of Buffy S8 occurred concurrently, except there wasn't a Twilight arc because: no. No knowledge of the comics is needed to read this fic. The action will move from Cleveland to Spain to Gibraltar. Buffy does talk about Satsu and her sexuality, though there are no flashbacks, and hopefully I've altered that in a way that makes their relationship and Willow's friendship with Buffy during that time far more believable and respectful than the comics did. Beta'd by Gort and Swifthorse.  Links are available at the end of this chapter to Elysian Fields, AO3, and FFN so you can follow updates for the rest of the story if you'd like.
Thank you to the mods and everyone who posted or commented for another great round!
