Graphics

While going through my computer files today, I found a few graphics that I'd completed and never posted. So I'm posting them.

I'm really pleased with how this one turned out. I'm actually working on a Connor one ("Is that what I am? Some kind of Demon?") to go with it (and possibly be tied to fic I'm working on, too), but I wanted to post this one now, because I think it might be my favorite of the things I've done, so far *g*.

There's a screencap meme going around tumblr, so yesterday I spent some of my snowed-in free time doing this one fo ever_neutral

oh god. That V/L one with those quotes... are you trying to break me??

I love them all. I'm also really intrigued about this story you're working on... ;)
Yes. Breaking is the reaction I was trying to evoke :)

But, yay for angsty pilot graphics, amirite?

Thanks for looking at 'em, glad they were alright to look at *g* the graphic-making, it's an ongoing learning process/experiment.

The fic is a Dawn/Connor thing set in my AtS S5 AUverse. They interact and become friends, prior to everyone getting their Connor memories back. And then they do get those memories back, and Connor's all "my life is a lie, who am I now? We just don't know!" and Dawn's like "you're not gonna believe this, but I can actually help you out with the life-is-a-lie stuff. Not the vampire-offspring-raised-in-hell stuff, though. But the memory business? I got you." Except, hopefully, it's better written than that info dump.
Wow, that Dawn one really grabs you. They're all gorgeous, but that one is so striking!
:D thank you so much!
The Dawnie one broke my heart. Of course.

These are lovely.


(FIC?!?! WHAT FIC!?!?! ABOUT DAWNIE!?!?!? WANT)
I won't lie to you, I am ridiculously proud of the Dawn one. Stupid proud. I worked ~hard on that thing, and I actually really love how it turned out, and I'm still so new to graphic-making (the first time I touched PS for anything, at all, ever was for school project last February. And I think I used a total of 6 buttons. I am BAD at computers), that being really pleased with what I've done is rare and exciting.

Dawnie fic!! It's actually Dawnie-and-Connor friendship/romance fic, but LOTS of Dawnie-and-her-identity-issues will abound. And Connor will have some of those issues as well. Because Lord, are those two a goldmine of parallels and issues. And it's set in my AU AtS S5 'verse where Buffy and Dawn are in LA. So Dawn and Connor end up meeting on their own before Connor gets his memories back. Fun times.

I'm gonna shamelessly pimp myself out and mention that I've written some Dawnie stuff before that should be on my fic masterlist. I went through an odd phase of being on board with Dawn/Xander half the time and being creeped out the rest of the time, and somehow that translated to shippy fic... But it's not too extreme.
You SHOULD be proud of the Dawnie one! I especially love the fact that you found images of Trachtenberg as a child. LOVE.

DAWNIE FIC IS RELEVANT TO MY INTERESTS. I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS. (Even though I've never exactly SHIP Dawn/Connor - mostly I see them as the most EPIC BROTP of all time... but I don't ship Dawn with anyone... except sometimes Faith in a ~weird way ... and now apparently a kpop idol. #shrugs)

REMIND ME OF THIS FIC IN A WEEK WHEN MY LIFE ISN'T SO OVERWHELMING!

OMG, I have so many caps on my computer from The Adventures of Pete and Pete, and Harriet the Spy. Those are going to take some serious explanation if anyone were to ever find them... But it's ok, because bb!Dawn. I wanted to have things that Dawn would remember, but that didn't happen, and since all her scenes take place post-her creation, so I had to improvise.

\o/

I don't really have a go-to Dawn ship, I tend to just ship her with whoever I think is making her happy (which I think explains my on and off relationship with Dawn/Xander, tbh). Weirdly, the only time I actively ship Dawn/Connor as a ship and not just a desire for them to interact, is in this fic's AUverse. Because I think Connor in S5, before he gets his memory back, and post-Chosen Dawn, would get along really well. And I'm into the idea of the two of them already being involved, and caring about each other, and ~then it turns out that they have this HUGE thing in common, and it's something they sort of tackle together. I also really like the idea of Dawn basically being Connor's identity crisis spirit guide *g*. there's also a fair amount of Dawn/spuffy domestic times. Because in this version of AS5, Spike lives with them

  ... and now apparently a kpop idol. #shrugs

Lololololol 

What if I just link the Dawn fic here, because I'm shameless? And also because I will 100% forget to remind you... 

The first several aren't Dawn-centric, but have her as a primary character. Most of them are from one of the first Buffyverse fics I did, a series of short oneshots that were fitb conversations about Buffy and Spike's relationship. I believe these feature Dawn + Spike, D + Buffy, and D + Anya.

(No actual Dawnie in this one, but it's Buffy and Spike talking about her)

OH MY GODDDDDDD THAT SONG CHOICE + LOGAN/VERONICA GONNA KMS X(((((((

Hahaha oh man, totally forgot I requested that Buffy one. I like your "bookending" of the Sunnydale sign. XD TY, m'dear. <3
OH MY GODDDDDDD THAT SONG CHOICE + LOGAN/VERONICA GONNA KMS X(((((((

They exist only to TWIST THE JAGGED, RUSTY SWORD THAT THEY PUT THROUGH MY HEART. I blame Logan and Veronica, entirely, for anything having to do with them. And Backwards Walk is pathetically perfect for them. Codependent, can't-walk-away-for-trying, emotionally stunted fuck-ups. THEY RUIN LIVES.

TY, m'dear. <3 You're welcome! The bookending. Buffy is Sunnydale, Sunnydale is Buffy, etc, etc. And I'm about to post that meme over here. Because I need something to do, Snowmageddon 2012 has trapped me in a house with my family for days on end....
