Hi! I'm in the process of moving all my fic over to my AO3 account, so if you followed a broken link to this LJ, the fic you're looking for is probably up over there. (If for some reason it's not, shoot me a message)

Thanks for visiting!

Do unto you now
brynspikess
I'm not sure if anyone reads my LJ anymore, but I figured I'd drop a plea here just in case.

I've mention Wincon before. How awesome it is. How much I love it. How much it's changed my life. Now, it's crunch time. The time to act is now.

As of the moment I post this, we have 16 hours left before the deadline, and we are less than $800 away from making goal - if we make it, Wincon 2015 is a go, and we'll be on our way to many more awesome years. If we don't make goal, then all donations are refunded and Wincon is cancelled forever.

Wincon as a convention has reached a crossroads. It's been around for nine years and has become known as both an eclectic group from various backgrounds and fandoms, as well as a safe space for fans to express themselves and their fannish passions. But it's expensive to run a small con, and in order to remain financially stable for next year (nobody wants to be the repeat of Dashcon), we're making sure we have enough attendees and money to run the convention in advance.

Please, if you can, purchase a registration or one of the many awesome perks that we have for sale. If you can't donate, please spread the word, and reblog Wincon on Tumblr/Facebook/Twitter/wherever else you can.

We're so close to goal. Please help us keep Wincon alive. Thank you so much for your time.

A friend is going through a Buffy rewatch marathon, which got to us chatting about Angel s1 and Doyle, and so now I'm whipping up a quick and dirty rec list of my favorite Doyle fics. Since my main hard drive is still down for the count, I can't check my saved fanfic hoard, so this is all off the top of my head. Enjoy!



Title: The River As Seen From Above by Doyle
Pairing: Doyle/Harry
Summary: Back to 1995, and Doyle's last day with Harry before discovering he was half-demon.

Series: Doyle Investigations
Pairing: Doyle/Faith
Summary: In a darker world where the forces of darkness run unchecked, a bitter Doyle is all that stands between LA citizens and the terrors that stalk the streets. Alongside Faith the Vampire Slayer and her Watcher, Wesley Wyndham-Price, Doyle fights in the world inspired by the Buffy episode 'The Wish', a world with the Master ascendant in Sunnydale and with Buffy Summers and Angel dead and gone. Welcome to this darker corner of the Wishverse...

Title: Skelping by Mad Poetess
Pairings: Wesley/Doyle, Cordelia/Phantom Dennis
Summary: Doyle comes back as a ghost some time after his "death". Wesley is lonely and can feel someone watching him sometimes...

Title: Unwilling Eurydice by Katta
Pairings: Wesley/Doyle
Summary: In Doyle's own words: ”And that’s the story of my glorious resurrection, which I made a mess of as usual.”


Series: Stranger Things by Esmerelda.
Pairings: Spike/Xander, Angel/Doyle
Summary: Spike helps Xander out of a difficult situation. A very long series that veers off canon in the 4th season. It begins as S/X then adds A/D to the mix.

Title: Year of Grace by Ellen
Pairings: Doyle/Angel & Doyle/Cordelia.
Summary: AU - starts immediately following "Parting Gifts." The Oracles agree to restore Doyle to life after his hero's death, but there's a catch: He only has a year to live. Switches POV between Angel, Cordelia, Doyle and Wesley.

Okay, so. I'm going to have to move here in the next few months, and I'm trying to sell whatever I can bear to part with. Please take a look and help out if you can. Let me know what all you want and email me where you live (brynspikess at gmail dot com), and I'll calculate shipping. Thank you so much!!!

I'm flexible on some of the asking prices - no reasonable offer will be refused! I prefer paypal, but if you wanna snailmail a payment we can work something out.
