THE LENDING LIBRARY

Never judge a book by its cover. Especially fanfiction...which doesn't have a cover!


This section is dedicated to my fanfiction. There isn't a lot to choose from yet, but I hope to keep adding more.


YOUTHFUL INDISCRETIONS

VERSION ONE takes place during the third season time line, and fits after the episode "Bad Girls" and before the episode "Consequences".

PAIRING: There are no unusual romatic pairings. The character relationships closely follow those of the TV show canon for this particular time line (B/A, W/O, and X/C or C/Wes, depending on the version). The emphasis is on a B/G friendship. Faith and the Mayor's presence is glossed over as this deals mostly with the main core group of characters.

RATING: Pretty much PG-13. There is some mild language, and several references to sex, but no explicit or descriptive text. Only a few gratuitous schmoochies here and there.

SUMMARY: As if just being a teenager isn't tough enough, Buffy Summers has to break in her new Watcher, Wesely Wyndham-Pryce. She also has to stop a demon that is bent on decimating the male population in town, plus deal with some unusual consequences that have befallen her former Watcher and mentor, Rupert Giles.





YOUTHFUL INDISCRETIONS

VERSION TWO falls early in the third season, post "Band Candy" and just prior to "Lover's Walk" and "Helpless".

PAIRING: There are no unusual romatic pairings. The character relationships closely follow those of the TV show canon for this particular time line (B/A, W/O, and X/C or C/Wes, depending on the version). The emphasis is on a B/G friendship.

HE'S NO ANGEL: IN THE BEGINNING

HE'S NO ANGEL: IN THE BEGINNING falls early in the fith season, post "All The Way" and just prior to the fantastic "Once More, With Feeling" musical episode.

PAIRINGS: The character relationships start off closely following those of the TV show canon for this particular time line (Willow is with Tara, Xander and Anya are newly engaged, Riley has left Buffy and Spike is pursuing the slayer with little success).

RATING: More than a PG-13, but not quite up to hard core NC-17. There is some sexual language, and references to adult situations, but no explicit or graphic text decsribing the sexual acts themselves. Only a lot of wordy and flowery blue prose.

SUMMARY: Life can be tough when you've been dead. Buffy Summers is having more than her share of problems readjusting to her newly resurrected life. All her friends want for her is to be happy, but none of them know the secret she is keeping, that they stole her away from heavenly bliss to bring her back. Luckily, an angel has arrived to help her get through these difficult times. That angel is none other than her British Watcher, Rupert Giles. But Giles has troubles of his own to worry about. A magical accident has turned him into a demon, a demon with very human desires. Can the Scoobies find a cure for Giles' strange new affliction, and will Buffy find a way to keep her Watcher's hormones in check before he goes too far?


NOTE: Thanks go out to Pythia, a new friend. She made the wonderful pic featured on the left. She's writing an angel based Buffy story, too. And while I intend to someday have my own illustrations for this story, I thought other people might like to look at something more than the stupid "X" that's been sitting over there up until now.







*A NOTE ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATIONS

The pencil drawings that accompany the fan fiction on this page are of my own creation and design. I do acknowledge the use of photographs from various books and magazines in my possession, as well as the those that I have downloaded from the internet. I wish that I could say exactly where I found all these sources, but sadly, I'm not organized enough to be able to credit each and everyone piece I have collected. Eventually, I hope to have a bibliography or sorts on this site to cover most of that.

I'm not sure how legal copyrights work, but I am trusting that no one who visits this site will abuse the artwork that I have posted. I have signed and dated the originals, and I ask that any copying of said work is done only for personal and private use. I worked hard on these things, and though I am not a professed portrait artist, I don't think I did so bad in capturing the characters. I admit some aren't as good as others. These things don't always work out for me. Still, I'm proud of what I've managed to accomplish with a simple piece or paper, some pencils, and the help of my computer.

If you check back from time to time, I will be uploading additional illustrations for those chapters I have not yet gotten around to doing. ANd yes, I do know that I've used some of the same pictures in both versions of my story. I borrowed where I thought it appropriate, and made changes to some other pieces to help cut back on the time. (Again, the miracle of the modern computer shines through for me!)



Please enjoy both the artwork and the writing responsibly.
