I like Spuffy time travel stories. So, I vote for story idea number three. (The other two are intriguing too!).

I like the first story idea. :) (Well, I like them all, but I like that one best.)

Yay! Can't wait!
Are you reading the Buffy comics?
During the Halloween spell during Season 2, Spike and Buffy discover that Buffy Summers is the reincarnation...
After the events of All the Way, Spike and Buffy stumble across an interesting picture in Joyce's...
This is an archive for maryperk's stories.
In Mary's world it's only a matter of time before Spike and Buffy admit that they have wanted each other since the first time they met.
Please enjoy the stories and let me know what you think. Unless it's a flame, which will not be appreciated.
I have three 'ideas' for a Halloween Story. Let me know which idea interests you the most.
Story 1: Title: Return of the Zeppo. Third installment to The Troll Hunt verse, centered around Halloween and Willow's spell. Here's the first paragraph:
Willow flipped through the spell book, anger poured off her in waves. Oz was gone to 'find himself'. Willow was sure it was Buffy's fault. Just like it was all her fault that Xander was dead.
Story 2: Title: The Great Pumpkin Massacre. I wrote this paragraph ages ago. Not even sure how long it has been.
"Halloween is supposed to be my night off," Buffy grumbled while she marched down the street. "But, noooo, I have to go check out the great pumpkin massacre."
Story 3: Untitled. Starts out post Series. I have about a page of this one on paper. I'm pretty sure it's a time travel story going back to Season 6 by how it reads.
"I hate to say this." Xander raised his drink as if he was presenting a toat. "I really miss Sunnydale Halloweens."
Now choose for me. Choose wisely!

Should I write a Halloween story this year?
Comments are being weird for some reason.

I really fell behind this year word wise. A few years ago, I wrote 120 chapters in one year. This year I think I wrote under 20. My life is going pretty good. So, I think that's part of it. LOL I asked in an LJ post about where to write besides in front of a computer because I think that's part of my issues. So, easily distracted by all the fic and pretty pictures and the Elysian Fields Chatzy. To that end, here are my goals for 2014.
1. Find someplace out of the house where I can write in peace. DONE
1a. And actually go once or twice a week.
2. Buy an e-reader of some kind so I can take my fics with me. Sometimes I need to look back for clarification. DONE
3. Write at least 2 chapters a month on my WIPs.
4. Finish 1 WIP. DONE
So, send catnip and sardines for the plot kitties
January: I went to the library and found a couple of spots I can hang out. Now to tear myself away from the computer! I have a chapter of Memories Maketh the Man to type in, I have an NCIS scene, and I've started a chapter of Kissin' Cousins.
Feb: I've written the Kissin' Cousins chapter. I'm going to concentrate on five stories: The Swap, The Seraph, Hank Summer Gets His Comeuppance, Memories Maketh the Man, and Kissin' Cousins. I've been sick for two weeks. So, any writing hasn't been happening. I have my Kindle fire now.
March: I only got one chapter written this month. It's a Swap chapter.
April: Sadly, I'm falling down on the writing job. I hope you all don't hate me. I got a small Spuffy/Lindsey McDonald ficlet sequel to Just a Nibble written for nekid spike lj. Half way done with a Hank Summers Gets his Comeuppance fic. You'll be happy he's finally caught sight of the crossdressing midgets and their goats. Now to relieve him of his pants. Still plugging along.
May: 5/22, I have the two chapters back from beta. I just need to get them edited and posted. I'm pretty sure there is only one more chapter of Hank Summers Gets His Comuppance. So, that's what I'll be writing on next. When I'm finished with that, I'll be adding a different WIP to the line up. I'm thinking Sands of Burning Time. I haven't updated it in awhile.
5/25: I'm putting together a 'writing bag'. In it I have a dictionary, thesaurus, journal (means extra paper), a case with a couple of pens and an extra stylus for the Kindle, and a couple of books on writing. Just have to grab the kindle and wallet to go write someplace. I am thinking about putting a few dollars in there so I have cash for a soda or snack.
5/29: anyone who follows me on LJ should know that I put up a 'chapter' of Vote a Story.
June: 6/9 I sent the last Hank chapter to Tasha for beta. Next up a Seraph chapter, followed by a Kissin' Cousins chapter, then a Memoires Maketh the Man chapter, and then a Swap chapter.
6/18: The Seraph sent to Tasha for beta. Starting on the Kissin' Cousins chapter.
July: 7/23 - finally finished the KC chapter. I hate writing fights. Not to mention there was a plot point I wanted to cover and I had to figure out how. Next up, Memories Maketh a Man.
September: 9/7 - finished the Memories Maketh the Man chapter. I'm working on a Halloween ficlet.
