(Meta) In Chronological Order, Redux

7th December 2009 (22:50)

So, a while back I posted a list of all my fic in chronological order. deird1 suggested that it would be a really useful index if it had links that you could click on to read each story; I apologised that I hadn't had time to do anything so ambitous.

So what does she do? She goes and creates the index for me. And all she wants in return is a pony and my firstborn child...

So I spent today getting the pony crated up and put on a plane to Australia. The firstborn child will take a little longer to manage - a minimum of nine months longer, in fact. (And if any of the female members of my flist would like to help me with another little, um, creative project, let me know... We can't let deird1 down!)

So, here it is: all my fic in chronological order, from Hiywan's Story set in 6,000 BC to Earth That Was set in AD 2420. Now with clickable links!

Pre-TV Series

Hiywan's Story - Hiywan (OC). c.6000 BC. The fic covers about 6 years of time starting from when she was 8.
Before The Dawn - Hiywan (OC). c.6000 BC. This is soon after she became an adult.
Blood, Some Of It Mine - Hiywan (OC). c.6000 BC. About six months after the end of 'Hiywan's Story'.
A Day In The Life Of The Five Trees Clan - Hiywan (OC). c.6000 BC. She's been an adult about two years here. (And also, Rites Of Passage)
Before There Was A Slayer - Hiywan (OC). c.6000 BC. This describes her capture by the Shadowmen.
Dominion - First Slayer. c.6000 BC. A few months after 'Before There Was A Slayer'.
I Am Destruction - First Slayer. c.6000 BC. Hiywan confronts the thing that killed her sister.
We Are Alone - Qusari Tefari (OC), time unknown but after Its imprisonment within the body of the Slayer.
Alone - First Slayer, time unknown but after the death of her physical body.

Sumeria 4500BC: The First Religion - Alulim of Eridu (OC). The title pretty much dates this precisely.
If Ever Before Thou Didst Hear My Voice Afar - Sappho. 590 BC.
Great Muppety Odin - Odin, Thor. Some time in the legendary past of the Scandinavian peoples.
It Would Have Been Like Woodstock - Jesus of Nazareth, a donkey, some vampire OCs. Palm Sunday AD 33.

Getting In The Game - Faith, 'Uncle' Sean (OC). 1980s.
How Willow Discovered Online Porn - Ira, Sheila and Willow Rosenberg. 1995 (Willow is 14).
Three Callings: Boston - Faith. 1994. I made Faith around 14 when she met her Watcher here, but since writing this I've decided it would have been much later - probably about the start of S2 giving them just under a year together.
Three Callings: Los Angeles - Buffy. 1996.

This is very impressive. *applauds*

But if I can just pick one nit - if "Past Imperfect, Future Conditional, Present Tense" is set in 1997, shouldn't the other time travel fic "We Just Declared War" be set in the year 2179?

Posted by: StephenT (stormwreath)

I had to think abut that one... but no. This is a Buffyverse timeline, and it lists when the fic took place in Buffyverse continuity... not that of the crossover universe.

'We Just Declared War' has Buffy going through a portal into a parallel dimension; it may be the 22nd century from Ripley's perspective, but from Buffy's it's still Season 8. Similarly, 'Angel And The Dragon' is set during 'After The Fall' from Angel's perspective, but from F'lar and Lessa's it's about 3,000 years in our future. But the story's not about them, it's about Buffy and Angel respectively.

Buffy Happy Superhero


You certainly owe deird1 a lot! Perhaps you can distract her with something shiny?

Maybe I shuld glue some glitter onto the pony before I send it?

Well, a lot of the fic listed there is drabbles, so in terms of actual wordcount, there are plenty of people on my flist who've written a lot more.

But more readers are always welcome. :-)

Address? We don't need no steenking addresses. I was just going to nail the pony into a huge wooden box with some airholes, wrap a pink ribbon around it, and write on the side "Deird1, Melbourne, Australia". Surely that will work?

but the kid, not so much

My mom really wants a grandkid. I'm sure she'd love one with a British accent.

Posted by: StephenT (stormwreath)
Posted at: 8th December 2009 08:41 (UTC)

\o/ yay!

British accent.

Um... that could be a problem, since we'd be giving the firstborn to deird1. S/He would probably end up with an Australian accent instead. Is that a dealbreaker?

Posted by: The One Who Isn't Chosen (gabrielleabelle)
Posted at: 8th December 2009 17:45 (UTC)

Nah. I have the cheatcode to get twins. We'll give the first one to deird1 and the second one to my mom. 'Tis perfect.

And British accents are genetic, right? Right??

Posted by: StephenT (stormwreath)
Posted at: 8th December 2009 19:14 (UTC)

British accents are genetic, right?

Well, everybody in my family has one, so I assume so...

Also, in my experience, when parents say they want grandchildren, they're not actually expecting you to ring their doorbell, hand over the baby and say "Here you go, see you next Christmas!" :-)

Posted by: The One Who Isn't Chosen (gabrielleabelle)
Posted at: 8th December 2009 19:35 (UTC)

Oh no. My mom and I have discussed it. She'd be completely fine with that. No worries.

It's on then!

My place, your place, or halfway between the two? Which would probably be in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, so bring a towel...

LJ still isn't sending out comment notifications? How irksome.

I have an irrational fear of oceans, so I'm not having a baby-making rendezvous in one. And I'm not spending 12 hours in a plane over one, either. You're gonna have to come to the land o' cowboys if you want to spawn.

I'll buy you a beer in compensation, though. That's fair, right?

I'd totally volunteer...except for my phobia of having what essentially amounts to a parasite growing inside me for 9 months. How do you think she'd feel about an adopted firstborn??

Posted by: StephenT (stormwreath)
Posted at: 8th December 2009 08:40 (UTC)

Hmm. I understand your caution...

We'll have to ask.

I'm sure she'll be okay with it.

Posted by: StephenT (stormwreath)
Posted at: 8th December 2009 19:15 (UTC)

I should probably reassure you by pointing out that new-born alien parasites babies aren't usually as big as the one Buffy's about to fight in that picture... :-)

Yeah, but they grow.

You have issues. ;-) And they seem to be exactly the same issues as Snowy has. Are you sure a bunch of US schools didn't mistakenly show 'Alien' instead of a sex education video one time?

Posted by: The Anti-OTP (snowpuppies)
Posted at: 9th December 2009 16:02 (UTC)

Actually, my issues are completely and utterly related to my person - birth doesn't bother me at all. I at one time thought about being an OBGYN. :)

Just don't want one of the boogers in me.

Heh, well, I did say those were my issues...


Are we clones, now? Would be handy to know, yeah?
