This is reccing a fanvid or fanfic. I'm doing two each, because that's how I roll. :P

First up is Hey, Dumbass, by damnskippytoo. This deeelightful vid both tells a story and perfectly captures the fun essence of the C/A ship. It never fails to make me grin like a moron as I get all squishy about my ship. *sigh*

Next up is Umbrella, by gabs186. If Hey Dumbass makes me a syrupy happy mess over C/A then this vid makes me that way over the Fang Gang (Angel, Cordy, Wes, and Gunn). It makes me do a little dance, it makes me happy, it makes me sing along and I have this gigantic, can't-hardly-be-borne love for that Core Four and their total dedication and friendship with each other. I have so many favorite parts, but the one I adore the most is towards the beginning with Cordy and Wes bursting out into laughs during the The Shroud of Rahmon.

The first fic I'm reccing is kind of out of thin air. It's an older fic, and I am not sure the writer is even still in the AtS fandom. I haven't seen her/him anywhere but we were left with this very wonderful look at a classically (s1) Broody!Angel and a Cordelia that simply won't let him wallow. The descriptions are lush without being weighed down in detail, and I love the way the writer weaves Angel's memories in with the every day knick knacks of his life.

Blue Shift, by Wisebloodredux:


Second fic is Heart to Heart by Dazzle. I don't want to say too much because I don't want to give away any of its secrets. I'll just say it's horrifying, creepy, and heartbreaking. It's Angel and Connor, mothers and lovers, and an ending that will redefine Angst for the reader.


Both fics are housed at Volition. If you want the angsty C/A, this is the place to go browsing.


That's all folks. See you tomorrow. I promise to catch up on comments this weekend. :P

Oh, those two fanvids. I remember them. Dumbass made me laugh so much and the second one, well it's the Fang Gang FTW!

And I'm definitely going to read the fics you recced.

The vids are two of my absolute favorite because they make me so happy. It's ridiculous how much.

And the fics are perfect examples of angst at its finest. :D

I'd never seen these vids before. They're both so sweet, they make me miss my show all over again.

And hi there!

Aww, I'd never seen that Umbrella video. &hearts OT4 FTW baby!

Oh and I'll totes be checking both of those fics out. :D

I'm glad I posted Umbrella then because it releases endorphins in me that are essential to a good day and eveyone should know its joy. :D
