Of boredom and Christmas Cards

I'm bored again, so I thought I'd post as I haven't for a while and people who haven't had a pithy comment might think I'm dead.

Problem is I haven't done anything exciting, apart from repeated trips to Hobbycraft to purchase Christmas Card-making materials (that I can't afford due to continuing unemployment). I may decide to inflict my efforts on people later.

I have been working on the WIP and nearly finished a chapter before deciding it didn't work, so I have split it into three. Hopefully, now I can pull them together a bit quicker. As for anything else, I'm lacking some inspiration. Anyone got any Illyria ideas I could kick around?

Illyria goes to a funfair? Has fun on the teacups?

OK, so that's rubbish. I just wanted to say hi, basically - I missed my tentacle-philic friend (I don't know the Greek for tentacle, so bear with me, OK?).

Has the fair been in town? The problem with that idea is that I zero idea what an American fair is like. I may drabble though.

I've been around, and I have a fic of yours to R and R, but I don't have as much time as I used to and I am still judging the RDAs.

Hi, I can do meh, but no ideas, well done on the wip. Cute icon:) You have just made me think I should start thinking about Christmas cards, started making yet? I make with the kids in school but that's it.

>>>well done on the wip

It's all crap, it's depressing me.

I have started making, and of variable quality. I've already made more than people I know! I might make everyone here one.

How about a Spike/Illyria where Illyria is having an attack of Split personality and Spike doesn't know it.

Could be funny.

Spike/Fred/Illyria? Hmmm.

Okay- here are two. These came to me as I was reading your post.

Her comment from AtS- "I can no longer hear the song of the green."
Does that means plants used to talk to her?

What if there was a plant demon, gonna take over LA? And she and Spike gotta take it out? If she still had that plant telepathy thing going, we/Spike wouldn't be able to tell if the plant demon thingy was luring her with promises of conquest and power, or if she was really Spike's ally...

I dunno.

That or Spike tries to pimp her out at that Peppermints strip club, enterprising vamp that he is. Lots of potential for humor there. ;)

That's all I got.
Sorry. Kinda lame.
Good luck!

First one I did awhile back:

When the plants talk, Illyria listens.

They don’t gossip, of that they have no concept, but they know all the same. Silent observers, her spies are everywhere. They tell all of Wolfram and Hart’s secrets.

They tell her of the lust that sparks in Spike’s eyes when they fight, of the madness in Wesley’s as he watches her walk away or the guilt that haunts Gunn’s. They whisper that Angel talks of containing her, diminishing her power because he fears it.

But they can’t explain to her the sorrow they all keep in their hearts for a woman called Fred.

>>What if there was a plant demon, gonna take over LA? And she and Spike gotta take it out? If she still had that plant telepathy thing going, we/Spike wouldn't be able to tell if the plant demon thingy was luring her with promises of conquest and power, or if she was really Spike's ally...

I was thinking more of a ficlet! Might work though...

Are the card-making materials like scrapbook materials? Because maybe I have too much of one thing and could send you something.

I don't know. I've never made a scrapbook. It mostly consists of fancy papers, ribbons and sticky on things like sequins or big stars.

How about an Illyria/Sponge Bob Square Pants crossover? There's a squid in it...

Haven't forgotten the WIP, just trying to get a bit of work-type bollocks out of the way before a trip to see clients on Monday. In London. Bleh.

>>>Sponge Bob Square Pants

I've never seen it though.

No worries about the WIP. I'm getting the judging done.

Well it's nice to see you! I don't have much to say either at the moment, except to complain about how uncomfortable I am - which gets old really fast!

Anyway, since I've so very nearly finished my own WIP, I'm looking forward to reading yours immensely! It's pretty much top of my list I think!

(And sorry - no plot bunnies I'm afraid, but I *do* have a pretty new icon...)

>>>Anyway, since I've so very nearly finished my own WIP, I'm looking forward to reading yours immensely! It's pretty much top of my list I think!

Yours is own my reading list too, but I just don't get the time to get to read fic so much anymore. I will get to it eventually though.

it's a lovely icon too.

No ideas but glad to see you and love the cute icon.

I just don't have the same amount of commenting time nowadays. I have a suspicion too that my FL is reaching critcial mass, I only have time to skim it.

Nice to see a post of yourveryown.

Illyria goes to England post NFA to seek out the Deeper Well? Whoever you want to survive can go with - but Spike showing her round his home country might have potential.

Yeah, it's about time I posted. I may even post some thoughts later on dabbling.

>>>Illyria goes to England post NFA to seek out the Deeper Well? Whoever you want to survive can go with - but Spike showing her round his home country might have potential.

That's not bad actually, I've wanted to do the Deeper Well for a while (because I have a Drogyn itch - and I have a way to bring him back). That may develop - though it's longer than I was planning.

This is lilacdream7 i got a NEW NAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ADD ME :)

If you put it like that...

Yay, WIP! ::bounces:: And shiny icons...

It might not seem like it, but I'm always working on the damn WIP. I'm just struggling!

I'd like to know how Illyria came by that battlesuit of hers. Reckon there could be a story to tell in there.

I sort of did that before, but I could take a more direct approach.
