All about Spuffy

I didn't do writing today. I spent all my free time brainstorming ideas for two Spuffy fics. I'm not sure I have a lot to show for it, but damn, it was fun.

I also found out we're only getting a single tech/dress rehearsal instead of the three we originally had scheduled, due to the venue change. That's a little nerve-wracking. I scheduled an extra rehearsal before it, which my actors were very grateful for. I hate not being prepared enough, plus it'll come right after we have our run-through with the artistic director who will likely have notes. I want that rehearsal to incorporate her notes before we hit tech.

Tonight's watching was The Wish, Amends, and Gingerbread. It's a very good thing I love The Wish so much because I really can't stand either of the other two. Gingerbread just makes me angry in all the wrong ways, and Amends is...icky and frustrating. The First was always a nebulous Big Bad, and it needs a stronger actor than David Boreanaz to make it believable. His reactions just never rang true for me, plus there's the whole magical snow and the lack of logic about locating the Bringers and Buffy's godawful bangs...just yuck.

But part of why I love The Wish so much stems from my love for alternate history. I'm a real sucker for the "what if this happened instead" scenarios, both in fiction and in fic. That's how Beg the Liquid Red came about. I could probably just write those and never get bored, to be honest.
