Willow the Teenage Witch  
The latest chapter is here!

Disclaimer: Still don't own 'em.
Feedback: We still love it.  We didn't get a lot for Cordelia.  Are you still there?


Day One
Buffy still not back yet, but probably will be soon.  I hope.  In the meantime, am keeping self v. busy by perfecting my tough, empowered woman act--think the last vampire was actually frightened.  Even if he got away.

Day Two
Buffy's back!  V. joyous, except now quips I spent hours working on are totally useless.  Difficult to slip that bit about the marzipan and pie plate into casual conversation.

(later)

Just had shouting match with Buffy...perhaps this quip thing is affecting me more than expected.  Or getting really good at the empowerment.

Day Three
Senior year off to an excellent start!  Have awesome guitar-playing boyfriend (as predicted), very cool friends (also predicted), Cordelia's actually being nice (not-so-predicted there), and met cool new slayer-person last night (and prediction flies right out the window).

Now if only Buffy would get along with the other slayer, and Giles would let me help with this v. neat spell he likes to be so darn vague about.  Don't know why he thinks I can't handle it.  That power outage was totally a fluke.

Day Four
Important life update: awesome guitar-playing boyfriend might be cold-blooded killer jelly doughnut.  Which would be unfortunate, since jelly doughnuts are not-so-good for snuggling.  You'd get all sticky. (Sorry about that, Oz just came in...)

(later)

Oz not killer!  Or jelly doughnut!  Knew he was the fuzzy, harmless kind of mystical beast.

Day Five
Never knew formal wear could be so...interesting. (and v. v. BAD. of course bad. why would cheating on my wonderful boyfriend to make out with my best friend who I've only been in love with since I was six years old and finally over the Barbie Incident be bad???)

Wonder if formal wear effect is universal, like with Buffy and Cordelia in the limo.  They sure haven't arrived at the dance yet...

Day Six
I am surprised that Buffy's on-again-off-again-undead-sometimes-evil boyfriend is back from Hell.  I feel that, in comparison, my romantic troubles don't seem so troublesome.  I wish everybody else used the I-statements.

Day Seven
740 on the SATs?!  What computer nerd gets a 740 on the SATs?  (Even verbal, hmph.)   Must go do vocabulary exercises, reread Shakespeare, and perhaps study Oxford English Dictionary.

(later)

OED will have to wait.  Will be bowling with loving boyfriend Oz, and will not be thinking how cute Xander is...

(later)

Sudden inspiration!  Can bowl AND use magic to cure me and Xander of troublesome crushes.  Right?

Day Eight
Yesterday was v. busy.  Spike kidnapped me and Xander and threatened to kill us and then we made out while Oz and Cordelia watched...Xander!  Me and Xander made out!  And then Oz and Cordy saw us, v. bad.

(later)

...in retrospect have decided Xander and I will not be making out again EVER and Spike is stupid and miss Oz v. v. much.  Meh.

Day Nine
Still missing Oz; helping Buffy is distracting but not nearly enough.  Xander says no word from Cordelia; apparently she is jealous because they never made out in warehouse.  Am surprised, personally.  Thought they'd made out everywhere.

Day Ten
Happy Hanukkah!  In other news, have decided on best way to win Oz back.  It's really, really good.

Day Eleven
Plan to win Oz back v. successful.  He liked feather boa, which is v. lucky, as was accidentally conjured instead of wine.  Still not sure how that happened.  'Boa' not quite same as 'Merlot.'

Day Twelve
I dabble AND doodle. However, would be more amused by alliteration if wasn't grounded by MOO.

Also, Mom found out about Oz.  Why did I want her attention again?

Day Thirteen
Dinner with Oz and parents awkward, as mother not impressed by Oz's Potential Career Ambitions.  Silly of her, really.  E flat diminished ninth is v. impressive chord.  Plus now I think he's taciturnly angry...at least stoically annoyed.

Things could be worse... at least I'm not a rat.

Day Fourteen
Giles got fired!  All my preconceptions about adult employment shattered.  Too frantic to write angry letter.  Also, Buffy lost Slayer powers temporarily, totally not Giles's fault.

In other news, Amy loves her new bell!

Day Fifteen
EPIC BATTLE coming on.  Apocalypse epic.  Haven't seen too much of Xander, which is strange.  But can't worry about that, must research a way to stop these crazy demon ladies so we don't all die.

I hope we don't all die.

Day Sixteen
Buffy ditched me and chemistry for Faith and "slayer stuff."  Just don't understand.  What could they possibly be doing that I'm not allowed in on?  And during school hours?!

Day Seventeen
V. dramatic day at Sunnydale High. Apparently Faith's really big on taking people's virginities and/or lives. Or at least Xander's, and that guy the mayor works with.  I don't know who else.  Buffy should probably stop hanging out with her, though, who knows what could happen...

Oh boy. What if something happened?

Day Eighteen
Everyone thinks I'm boring.  Ate banana when it wasn't lunch time and tried wacky spell, but think something more drastic is called for...perhaps involving push-up bras and pleather? ('cause Faith's been into those lately, and no one's about to call her boring...)

(later)

Wacky spell brought not-me-but-vampire-gay-dominatrix-me from other dimension.  On plus side, now conveniently own pleather suit with push-up bra in my size.  (Now all I need is an appropriate time to wear it...)

Day Nineteen
Field trip to town hall was v. exciting, AND totally Oz's idea.  He always makes the best Scooby plans, when he makes Scooby plans.

Also Buffy oddly upset as I described Faith's taste in men for her, even after she asked.  Told her there might still be hope, since Faith is probably an equal opportunity slut, but she just gave me a funny look.  Don't get it.  She asked!

Day Twenty
Buffy was psychic today.  And yesterday, actually, but she's all back to normal Buffy now.  Too bad--she could have used new superpowers to find out the mayor's dastardly plans, or what Faith is doing Friday.

Day Twenty-One
Went on a secret mission to learn more about mayor, and managed to avenge Buffy's possibly unrequited love for Faith as well...or, at least I stole stuff from under Faith's nose.  I am SO empowered.

In that vein, have decided to attend UCSD--to keep fighting evil, and because I don't like scones all that much.

Day Twenty-Two
Buffy's single!  I thought breakup was over Faith, but then she said something about Angel and a soap opera.

In other news, hell hounds attacking Prom.  Sad, as I found v. awesome dress.

Day Twenty-Three
Prom was amazing.  Oz looked v. handsome and made me feel v. sexy and empowered.  Oh, and Buffy stopped the hell hounds.  And then we partied.

Day Twenty-Four
Mayor showed up at a Scooby meeting today so Giles could stab his chest open and then watch it heal.  Some people have strange ideas of fun.  Also suddenly not so excited to leave all behind for college.  The soda machine!  Who will the soda machine incorrectly give root beer to next?  I mean, college won't look anything like high school...

(later)

Was all panicky, but Oz stopped that...hope to get panicky again soon.

Day Twenty-Five
Understand now why Buffy broke up with Angel over soap opera.  Only caught a bit of it during graduation as was fighting for my life against army of undead, but was enough.  Just can't look at Angel the same way anymore.

(later)

Soda machine issue an issue no longer, as there is no more soda machine, or Sunnydale High.  Practically saw the "go out with a bang" pun form in Xander's head, but luckily he held it in.

Oh!  And secured a copy of Angel's manuscript from the rubble.  Buffy doesn't want it now, obviously, but maybe someday she'll be able to look on this situation and laugh.  Hopefully.

Also, Oz seemed kind of in love with it.  Odd.

Day Twenty-Six

Wow.  Have GRADUATED.  Not sure why it took so long to hit me (though perhaps it may have had something to do with fear of other things hitting me, like vampires or flaming arrows), but am v. excited for college.  Buffy + Faith, I think, have inspired me to reinvent myself into a new person who will perhaps experiment...with pleather!

awww. willow kind of pisses me off towards the end of s3 ('we tried to help you, faith'? really? 'cause you seemed far more interested in the fact that faith had screwed xander than you were in helping her, but i'm digressing), but this was really cute. :)
something clever: witchshah_of_blah on June 19th, 2008 06:11 pm (UTC)
Well clearly Willow's Faith-judgment is all mixed up by her unrequited love for Buffy and/or Faith.

Thanks for reading, and reviewing!

Hilariously funny...

Granted, this is partly due to my total obliviousness to the Buffy/Faith subtext I'm told was here, so that Willow's obsession looks a little odd. It had to be pointed out to me eventually....

This might be an odd question, but are you the same Mabus from buffyforums? I don't really frequent that board anymore but I used to go there all the time in its BW days. I'm miss edith.

Anyway, thank you for reading! And leaving feedback :)
I think I was oblivious to the Buffy/Faith subtext too in my first watching.

Yeah, that would be me. :)

I wasn't sure if it was you, what with the different name. I'm not on Buffyforums a whole lot myself these days.

Also--worth mentioning: I never pick up on subtext, regardless of the couple. If the show doesn't say they're together, and I don't catch them actually sharing bodily fluids, there's a good chance I will miss it entirely.

aw, thank you! we're very proud joy-bringers.

Hee! So much femslashy goodness here! With the Buffy's-unrequited-love-for-Faith-ness, and the formal wear effect with Buffy and Cordy in the limo, and 'experimenting' like Buffy & Faith. Maybe some of those weren't meant to be sexual, but dammit if I can't read fic and take pretty much everything to be sexual! Okay? I mean, c'mon, S3 is practically land o' the sexual interpretation, no?

Anyways. I love the 'we never made out in a warehouse' thing with Xander and Cordy - it doesn't matter how many times it gets said, it really never stops being funny!

Are you guys writing more of these? Cause I would be v. v. happy if you did. *sad Bambi eyes* Pleeeease? Okay, so you're kind of out of characters...but there's Faith! And there's other seasons, too! So there!
something clever: bees!shah_of_blah on August 8th, 2008 05:15 pm (UTC)
Of course it was meant to be sexual.

Anyway, we are most definitely writing more of these. We are hard at work on the next one right now, and very sorry for the delay (real lives and limited internet access).

Thanks again for reading and reviewing!
Lilylavastar on August 8th, 2008 06:16 pm (UTC)
Oh, goody! Yay for all things sexual!

...that sounded weird

Oh, triple quadruple Haagen Daas goody! It's totally cool about delays, because those RLs can be quite feisty when they want to be.

And no problem! It's fun. :D

taciturnly angry Hahaha

So much subtext (I tend to not see subtext, I have to be pointed in its direction...) ^_^

So much love too..

Um, our subtext was probably less subtext-y than you're used to. Subtlety is overrated, anyway. ; )

Thank you for the love!!! Many times over.
