sassafrass (11/28 12:06am): @holly that’s it! Thank you SO much!
pfeifferpack (11/27 11:44pm): partyHappy birthday to nepalichik, Sweetbutnutty & Howclay! Wishing you the best of birthdays with every joy, lavish love & every gift you most wanted. May you have a year with love, joy, laughter & success.
Holly (11/27 10:29pm): @sassafrass - Pretty sure that's Broken Bridges by Dusty
sassafrass (11/27 10:18pm): Does anyone remember the fic where Spike comes back but Buffy is living with someone else. He’s an OC and I think he and Buffy are engaged. Buffy and Spike have an affair… the other guy might be a cop. Man, I wish I could remember more.
HebiC (11/27 08:11pm): Welcome back Kathleen! May your recovery be swift and complete!
swonderful (11/27 09:39am): @Julikobold's latest chapter of An Odd Couple of Grumpy Old Brits, Xander mentions that his father shows the signs of addiction withdrawal when the money and booze run out, Buffy looks shocked. and Xander brushes it off. So did Joss & Co. They should have addressed this big teen demon.
the_big_bad (11/27 07:24am): And thank you for the featured story, which I just noticed! Agnes thanks you, too! big grin
the_big_bad (11/27 07:11am): Glad you are feeling better Kathleen, and hope you are fully well soon!

pfeifferpack (11/26 07:37pm): Sorry to hear that tragic! Keep getting well yourself.
tragic (11/26 07:09pm): Covid twins! I’m just getting over my second bout of it too!! Hope you’re recovering well pfeifferpack!
pfeifferpack (11/26 06:51pm): Thank you for the love. I love all of you too and I MEAN those words.
pfeifferpack (11/26 06:51pm): Yup repeat. Had COVID before they gave it a name in 19. Am vaxed/boosted so it's not as bad (was 6 weeks 1st time). Lots of exposure and it nailed me around the 10th. 1st test said no, 2nd said yes and my lungs agreed with #2 (& a 3rd test later).
JayeMaru (11/26 05:54pm): I'm especially blessed to have my birthday heralded by pfeifferpack. My day is perfection, now. Thank you! I hope you feel better with each new day. love
Sigyn (11/26 05:31pm): Welcome back, darling Kathleen. We will always miss you without you, but you take care of you. You is most important. Love you so much, I hope you feel much better much soonly!
slaymesoftly (11/26 04:52pm): Welcome back, pfeifferpack. Isn't this your second round? Hope that's the end of it and you feel 100% soon.
pfeifferpack (11/26 03:50pm): That said... party Happy birthday to JayeMaru! hoping the day is an endless celebration of YOU. May you be well loved & perfectly gifted. May this year see you richly blessed, deeply loved & properly rewarded.
pfeifferpack (11/26 03:49pm): I'm kinda back. My apologies to every wonderful family member here who had a birthday & I didn't get to post a personal wish. Know you are in my heart ALWAYS not just your birthday. (I've got COVID but am in the last of it I think... still not 100% but better). Asking pardon & no slight intended.
acekoomboom (11/26 02:45pm): I have a few drabbles in my RED series that focus on Spike vs. Angel, @CheekyKitten, especially "Is All I'll Ever Be" and "State of Grace."
Angelsheart1 (11/25 07:39pm): @cCheekyKitten Best Wishes by Kanita has a good Xander and Spike as friends, as far as I remember. https://dark-solace.org/...ter=1
satinsafe (11/25 12:02am): @CheekyKitten A Penny for Your… by jackofspikes has spike & Xander working on a friendship
CheekyKitten (11/24 06:59pm): @Sigyn @slaymesoftly Thank you!
I've actually red Beneath the Surface before, but will definitely do a reread!

slaymesoftly (11/24 06:19pm): @CheekyKitten- one of my Dead Things fics is Spike/Xander friendship: https://dark-solace.org/...ter=4 I may have some where they get along better, but the best ones usually are Spander eventually, so not on EF.

Email Issues October 27

Hi all! We've reached our daily limit again and email notifications will be down for 24 hours. As a reminder, this means no digest, story updates, comment notifications, author response replies, or PM notifications.

We have decided while we implement our longer-term fix, we will be temporarily suspending the daily digest until further notice to try to alleviate the traffic problem through the end of the event. As soon as we have our longer-term fix in place, we will resume sending the digest.

We will keep you informed of any future outages. You can post questions here or send them to elysianfieldsarchive@gmail.com, which is not affected by the outage.
