Oh, look, I finally managed to get a banner done. Yay!

Wow. The lj-cut was not cooperative.

Anyway, if you haven't read Bake Me a Bloody Cake before now, do yourself a favor and do, soon!

I spent the other day reading another of zennjenn's stories over on ff.net -- really a great story line, and the girl can seriously tell a story. Spike's not a vampire in it, but Buffy's the slayer, and it's a few years post-NFA, and well, you just need to read it to understand. It's not perfect, but it's really very good, and I definitely suggest checking it out. Your patience will be rewarded, as AB says. Oh, a link would help, huh? hahah From the Ashes

Anyway, I wanted to make a banner for it, and here's the result. I'm not comfortable blending screencaps and such, but still and all, I'm pretty pleased with it.

If y'all aren't reading Aloof Rocker Kryptonite, you should be. I'm just sayin'. (It's an All-human WIP, though, so if you've an allergy to those, stay clear.) Three chapters in, and this new author is totally making me smile. It has a few flaws, but generally speaking, it's great. And given the seemingly never ending torrent of, well. . . this is unlocked, and god forbid I offend any delicate sensibilities, so let's just say that stumbling into a fun, well-written, and engaging story from a brand new author was quite a nice surprise.

Anyway, I didn't think I could do story banners, but doing the one for [livejournal.com profile] dampersnspoons got me thinking I could, and so I've been meaning to try my hand at another one. This seemed as good as any to start out on. I have no idea if she'll even use it, so instead of waiting to find out, I thought I'd post it here and hope she won't care. I'm guessing not. hahaha And, besides, as Beth pointed out to me the other day, it's mine, I can post it. She's a very smart woman.

I learned my save early and save often lesson with this one. I was nearly done and PS locked up. Poof. All gone. Luckily I pretty much remembered everything I'd done to that point, minus a few specifics like exact colors of fill layers, but whatever. It's all sorted and now I save like a demon, and this one isn't hugely different than the first one. I think I'm proudest about something you can't even see because JM is covering most of it up. The attention whore. I kid! Yeesh, enough rambling about the boring process of getting this thing together. On to the banner. . . and read that story, darn it!

Several banners under the cut. Some of you have seen some of these already, I'm aware. I may even inadvertently post one that I've already posted here. Yes, I need a better album system in photobucket. I am aware. Also, the irony of a cataloging librarian having categorization/sorting issues is not lost on me. :D
