The Wintercon UK Minimeet weekend


That was a wild and intensive weekend! I hardly know where Sunday has gone!

The Writercon UK minimeet was a great success and all the attendees were so lovely (and wonderfully focused (mostly on naked spike!)). Makes me very optimistic that we'll get a UK/Europe con off the ground.

As an ice-breaker, we all did a drabble or a bit of art. Taking things too far, as usual, I did both:

Doomed Destiny by Bogwitch
(BtVS, between Seasons 3 and 4, Spike/Harmony)

The club’s name could be ‘Destiny’, but Spike doesn’t care.

He needs a crowd and gets one, the dancefloor full of the young and tasty. He’ll feed well, but later. He’s seen something better.

He cuts through the crowd, drawn to her blonde hair and the way it whips as she dances. She spins and he catches her. Meets her eyes, but they’re dead and empty. Perfect.

She smiles. “Hi, I’m Harmony!”

She doesn’t resist when he kisses her.

He can’t remember which he’s forgetting; the light or the dark. This girl’s a fantasy, but for one night she’s his.

And the matching wallpaper:
