Welcome to feed_theplayers!

This is a community where the casual or, hopefully, the passionate reader can leave feedback on certain ongoing RPGs:

 holding_forever : a Spike/Dawn romance set three years post "Not Fade Away" (that is four years post "Chosen)

 and

 love_curse: a Spike/Dawn romance, set a few months after Buffy's death in "The Gift" – an AU where Buffy is not brought back to life.

 If you enjoy our games, let us know. Well fed players are happier, more productive players.

    • Thank you! I'm having so much fun writing this it should come with a warning label.

      The problem is that right now I'm partener-less. auburnhaze1 doesn't play on weekends, and shining_key isn't online till Sunday. My comment for love_curse is growing to unnatural lengths.
  • I am really enjoying the two stories. I love how different they are! Love Curse is angsty and sexually-charged, whereas Holding Forever is quiet and melancholy. Since both scenarios are so Spawn, I can't wait to see how they go. Great job, everyone!
    • Thank you so much! I can't wait till my fellow-players get back online. I have sooooo much in my head for both story lines.
  • OK, I have to make more comments!!

    Love Curse- I love the hint of Spara! That's another one of my favorite pairings! I can't wait to see how it all goes with the Order of Taraka.

    Holding on to Forever- LOL... All the misunderstandings make for hijinks. I also like the references to LJ and the Buffyverse!

    I have a request, though. Could you guys start out each day with an entry rather than continuing on with the comments? That way, it is easier for us to keep track of what we've already read.

    You guys rock!
    • Thanks! Glad to know you're still following and enjoying.

      We do update a lot during a single day, so I guess making a new entry every day could work.

      And, just as a teaser, the action's just about to heat up on both stories.

      Playing is a lot of fun, but I can't help wishing that the people who read the stories would comment on them.
  • "You shouldn't get used to this," I tell her. "There's no way any man is ever going to fall asleep in bed with you."

    *swoon*
  • Alright!! Both stories are heating up, and I'm so excited!

    Why am I the only person commenting???
    • I'm excited, too.

      I do wish more people would comment. Thank you all the more for taking time to let us know you like the games.

    • I'm glad you found the games.
      Love_curse is about to get a lot more exciting.
      You're right about the cramp reference, of course. My mistake.

    Holding Forever is getting good. Poor Dawnie... she's so unsure of herself as if someone or something damaged her when Spike was away. I wonder what is was... Spike is oblivious which is cute because he's usually so observant; Dawn has thrown him for a loop!!

    I love this analogy: It feels like I woke up one day without remembering the name of the color blue. It's so clear and concise, yet poetic.

    Who's that in the picture with her arms around James? That's isn't Michelle Trachtenberg, is it??

    Great job, guys! On weekends I think, "Oh, man! No RPG games for me! *sigh*"
    • I'm still having fun with the games, and it's good to see that you are, too.

      The picture is from "Cool Money", a movie with JM playing real life jewelry thief Bobby Comfort, with The woman is his movie-wife Stephanie. I would LOVE it if anyone would do a manip based on it, replacing the actress with Michelle.

      Speaking of weekends, I feel exactly the same.
      • That would be a cool manip. If I had any skills at all, I would totally do it!!!

        P.S. I heart Andrew! I think it's funny that Spike's jealous and Dawn had no idea of his ogling. I'm surprised he's not ogling Spike! *giggle*

    • Re: Holy cow!

      I'm glad you enjoy them. I'm experiencing withdrawer not playing for two days.

      There's a very good reason for the behaviour of Dawn and Spike in love_curse. No spoilers.

      Not sure what's going to happen on holding_forever. About Dawn losing her soul, it's meant as a metaphor, but since in the buffyverse one can become inivisible if people aren't watching, maybe one can lose one's soul from unrequited love.

      btw, this is my new RPG identity. I love playing Spike, but I can't play alone, so I did something about it. Hell, I've even started a Giles/Lilah game. I seem to have a thing for playing Englishmen. I'm very close to trying an RPG with the character of Ethan Rayne. :)

    • Re: Poor Spike

      about love_curse, I set up a LiveJournal for willow. "Dawn" isn't online so much because of RL activities, so we talked about bringing willow in to explain what the hell is going on. I hope I'll find the time to write evil!willow
  • Holding Forever is getting hot. LOL... I kinda want to know more about Andrew; what is he thinking about all this craziness? This part is great:

    But if I do attack a human, I make damn sure it isn't my precious, innocent little girl.

    Haha! If Spike only knew...
  • One thing I can't afford is to be close to her. I'm out of anger. I'm afraid that I might yield to the temptation of taking the easy way, the pleasurable and immoral way.

    Do it! Come on, you know you want to!!! LOL

    • Celestine turned out to be a very useful plot device. She has some explanations about the whole affair that neither Dawn, nor Spike have any idea about.

      Love_curse is on hold until I can find a replacement for shining_key to play Dawn. I regret that she doesn't have time for this anymore. She had got the Dawn voice for this game quite right. I don't feel very happy about changing players, but I put too much in this game to just let it die. I hope my Willow post cleared up things a little.

    • I think they'd be okay with it. It's how I started the 2 spike/dawn games to begin with. I'll see about trying to find someone. It's the darkest and smuttiest game, storyline is made for angsty smut. Maybe if I give it up I can go back to finish my fics.
  • I'm so excited about the upcoming sex in Holding!!! *squee*

    I would love to play Dawn in Love Curse, but I'm leaving the country in about a week, and I'm not sure if I'll have regular access to the internet. *sigh* I hope you can find someone to fill in!
    • I haven't tried very hard to find someone, although I'm still very eager to continue love_curse. If you do have access to internet, wherever you are, or when you're returning home, please let me know if you're still willing to play Dawn.
    • Hi! I don't know if you remember me or my RPG, love_curse. In case all the circumstances are just right, that is if you have the time, the inclination and internet access, I was wondering if you would like to play Dawn in a Spike/Dawn RPG. Not necessarily love_curse. We can start a brand new game.

      Please reply when you read this, even if the answer is no. Hope it's yes, but either way, I'd like to know.

      • Hey! Of course I remember! It's just that I'm in France, and I don't have the internet at home. I only get to use it occasionally and have to pay by the hour. I would love to play Dawn, but I would only be able to do it every few days, which doesn't make for an exciting story. However, on the spikedawn community, a girl named liquid_rose (sorry, I don't know how to do tags) said she was looking for a spawn rpg and that she wants to play Dawn! Maybe she could help. If she does, be sure to post on the community, because I would like to read it even if I don't get to do so for a while. Good luck!
        • Oh, you are so lucky to be in France! I would love to visit it. Don't know about living there for any amount of time. I looked through your LJ a little. I hope you're making the most of being there.

          liquid_rose replied to my old message looking for an RPG partner. Hope you'll get to enjoy a new game if we manage to start one!


          • France is pretty good, although I often want to come home. I am way behind on all my fanfiction! *sigh*

            Thanks for the well-wishes!
            • I'm behind on writing my fics. I'm so close to the end it almost hurts that I can't finish them. Instead, I started a new RPG. It's not another Spike/Dawn. I don't know what's going on with liquid_rose. We were talking and she just disappeared off AIM.

              Anyway, the new game is Dawn/Bullseye (Collin Farrel's character from Daredevil). I'm changing him quite a bit, but my Dawn wants him that way, too, so it's all good.

    • Re: Dang

      My heart is breaking for poor Spike. I am very sad for him in both games. I hope auburnhaze1 will come back to play. I'm assuming she's busy. If the games are resumed, I'll give Spike the smutty happy ending he deserves.
  • I'd just like to say that I'm really, really loving love_curse. I just found it earlier, and I've already read everything there is. I know it's been almost two years, but I'd really love to see it continue.

    And now I'm off to read holding_forever.
  • Just finished holding_forever, and DAMN.

    You two are wonderful, and I would LOVE to see it finished or at least resumed.
