Welcome fellow Spillow shippers!!! Whether Spillow is your OTP or you just like them a little we hope that you find something to enjoy here.
We welcome fic, art and videos all revolving around the Willow/Spike pairing. Whether it is new or old or just a link to a really good piece, it is welcome here. If you have a threesome or moresome that Spike and Willow are a part of then that is welcome, too! Just so long as Spike and Willow are part of the main grouping and are central, it'll be accepted. You can have fic that starts out with another pairing, so long as it is Willow/Spike eventually, that is accepted. Or if Willow and Spike break up ... you can do that too. Or if they were never together but are the central characters in a way that they are dealing with each other ... bring it here!
All genres ... all shades of light and dark ... it has a home here. We just ask that you tag and warn appropriately.
Since this is a dying fandom and Spillow is a small niche ship. I'll be running a points system for the comm.
How to earn Points:
You get 1 point for every 500 words. This does not get rounded in any way. Drabbles accumulate to earn a point. YOU MUST PUT A WORD COUNT FOR THAT POST IN THE HEADER OR POINTS WILL NOT BE AWARDED!!!
On top of your word count you can earn the following:
1 point for participating in an activity or theme.
1/5 point for making bingo on a small card.
1 point for making bingo on a large card.
Ways to earn points without writing:
Art (because we don't get much of it):
You will earn 1 point for every 15 icons or 2 wallpapers or 1 manip or 1 animated .gif that you made yourself.
You will earn 3 points for a video.
Don't do art or write? (These are open to everyone!)
There are still ways to earn points and they are lucrative:
Coming up with an activity will earn you 5 points.
Coming up with a theme will earn you 2 points.
Also if you comment to someone and you are NOT a author or artist you can earn 1/2 point. This is only occurs once per post. If someone fake cuts to their own journal then put that you are from the innocence_sin in the comment and I'll find it and include it.
What you can get:
25 points will get you EITHER 3 icons OR a drabble (around 100 words).
50 points will get you EITHER a wallpaper OR a ficlet (between 100 and 500 words).
75 points will get you EITHER a manip OR fic that is between 500 to 1,500 words give or take.
150 points will get you EITHER a header, FO banner and icon set (if you need a layout change for this I'll be happy to make your layout) OR a fic that is no less than 3,000 words.
Art can be any character and any pairing ... skies the limit there. But be aware that I have issues finding bases so if you want something super specific, please find bases for me.
You will get art faster than fic.
What I won't do with fic:
1) No Spike/Xander, Giles/Dawn, or Riley/Spike. The exceptions to this rule are as follows: I will do Spike/Xander if Xander is a vampire or Spike is human. I will do Giles/Dawn if Giles is a teenager somehow or Dawn is at least 21. I will not do Riley/Spike under any circumstances ... sorry.
2) No incest, however you can ask for an AU where say Dawn and Buffy are not related.
3) No rape, non con, or dub con Porn without Plot. I feel like I've just assaulted someone when I try to do this. So either give me a plot or wait until you have enough points that a plot is going to be there regardless.
*Please note that just because this is a Spillow community that doesn't mean that the reward has to be Spillow ... you earned this so ask for whatever you want ... within the Buffyverse and my rules.
**I reserve the right to say no and ask you to change your request for whatever reason.
