I'm trying to read more fic, and I knew I was going to do a Merlin rec today, so I ambled over to Buffy fic to see if there was something short I could recommend. I found this ficlet called Born Again by Maidenjedi, a short character piece about Spike. I liked the language in it, and it reminded me of how much I love him.
But what spurred this was the story cruentum wrote for sheswatching's birthday. It's an incredibly poignant Percival piece called Tales of Glachdroha. Canon, gen, with Geoffrey. I do loves me some Percival, and this is absolutely stunning.
