Fic of the Week: Roller Coaster by Gail Christison, Karen Jephson, and Tricia Stewart (GylzGirl)  
Welcome to the new week. I told myself I would be better about posting on the right days, but things got very busy yesterday.

This week we will be reading Roller Coaster, which is a collaborative piece between Karen Jephson, Gail Christison, and Tricia Stewart (aka GylzGirl), rating PG-13/FRT. I chose it because I like the fact that there was a real sense of community and collaboration amongst the "classic" writers. You see many stories that are collaborations in the archives. Pretty cool.

Summary: The gang goes to an amusement park for Dawn's fifteenth birthday.
Setting: Season 6 AU set after the episode "All the Way"

So, if you are so inclined, please leave your thoughts in the comments below. If you haven't joined us in a chat before, now is the time to start. This past Saturday we had a great time chatting about fic, coming up with alternate endings for the antagonist's evil father, and watched and discussed first BtVS episode in our watch-a-long. Sunday was great as we had a newcomer and this Sunday we will begin the watch-a-long for those who can't make it on Sundays and those who don't mind watching again. :)

Oh, and this week, we'll start taking recs, again (next post).

I always loved writing collabs.
Morrwyn and I had one going where we kept writing each other to a corner and being horrified that the other person not only got out of the corner but left us scratching our heads where to go with it.
Sad thing was that we never finished it.

It was always interesting to see how a fic ended up when you wrote with someone else. When Elixie and I got together... it just ended up a hilarious hot mess full of injokes that probably wouldn't even make sense to the people who didn't know the others.
