The Vampire in the Basement, by michellephants

I adore, simply adore, this AU story: The Vampire in the Basement. Here is the synopsis:

While hunting one afternoon, the boys stumble upon what appears to be a corpse. When they learn it's a severely broken vampire, they take him home to do what they can to help. But of course, fate has plans for this man. Canon Couples. AU.

Michellephants' story is just fabulous. Much angst; and the story progression is true to the spirit of the story - that is to say, she doesn't rush through the important processes involved in the pursuit of "getting to the popular stuff". I highly recommend it.

You didn't tell me you read this too! LOVE IT don't you???

Did you watch Buffy at all? (This is relevant to this story, yes, unlike my usual tangents).

Didn't I tell you on "our" thread?? I thought I had mentioned it. OMG, yes, it's freakin' amazing. It's so just pure fucking angst, bb, and I love it!

No, I never watched Buffy, girl; but lay it on me - why/how is it relevant? How many Buffy seasons were there? I might be prevailed upon to watch it - after all, you listened to me about QAF... :)

I should have my Joss card torn up for this, but I don't know how many Buffy seasons off the top of my head. I think there are 7, but the 1st season is short. Buffy was fucking AWESOME. I've seen every episode like 5 times easy. When I was on mat leave I'd watch it like every time I came on TV (which was often).

Anyway this is relevant because there was this super secret govt agency on s4 and they were called "the initiative" and they would experiment on "hostiles" and such. I swear the whole bar code on the wrist and trying to like biomanip Edward is like soooo the initiative and I've been dying for someone that I know is a Buffy fan to read this fic so I can compare notes with.

It is campy and dark. I think if you enjoy Supernatural, you will enjoy Buffy. Plus it has a heaping side of Angel and Spike who are HAWT.

Ok, I see what you're saying.

Did I tell you I downloaded the whole season of Firefly? I haven't started watching it yet, but I do have it on deck.

I could totally go for an update of Vamp (no longer) in the Basement this weekend, couldn't you??

I have never watched Firefly, I do love Nathan Fillian.

Have you seen Dr. Horrible's sing along blog? It has not only Nathan, but Neil Patrick Harris, who is so freaking awesome.

The vamp no longer in the basement author has a lot of stuff going on this week, so I doubt we'll see an update.

If you ever start watching Buffy let me know, or Angel (although don't start watching Angel until you have watched Buffy, otherwise it will spoil it). It would be fun to relive it again.

p.s. I have a laugh at Blogspot asking me to "choose and identity" as if I have so many to choose from. Umm, lets see, today I think I'll be Angelina because maybe I'll get to screw Brad, yeah, that works for me..
