My scorecard isn't quite so pretty as fancyflautist's blackout from last year, but I definitely took inspiration from the presentation! As you should be able to see, my Bingo is diagonal. Please note, my five fics cover a variety of characters and pairings, but with no romance to be found as such. Further details are below the cut, if you don't want to take a lucky dip and just click on the links.

Summary: Imagine a very slow golf clap.... This is a list of tweets that people in the Buffyverse might have added to the #MeToo discourse. It is in rough chronological order, but not intended to deal with every single instance in the two series. It is, however, what I felt those characters might feel comfortable sharing in that social media moment.
Author's Note/Disclaimer: Rape/Non-Con. There is nothing explicit, but it is all on the one topic. Please do not read if it might be triggering for you.
Title: Bathroom Buddies
Prompt: BtVS 4x01: The Freshman
Character/Pairing: Giles/Anyanka. Past Giles/Olivia. Focus is on Anyanka and Olivia Williams' friendship.
Word Count: 1,000
Summary: Olivia Williams rocks up in Sunnydale for what she expects to be a surprise booty call in the autumn of 2000. Ripper Giles' girlfriend answering the door comes as a bit of a shock.
Author's Note/Disclaimer: This follows on from other stories of mine (Further Tales from the Ripples Verse), but it can also be read as a stand-alone.
Titlle: The Hind That Mates A Lion
Prompt: Free Space
Character/Pairing: Angel/Original Female Character.
Word Count: 3,641
Summary: The full backstory for Angel in The Sharing 'Verse that (I think two) dedicated readers asked for.... Ever wondered who Corrine was? Or why Sally and Buffy don't get on? Well, read this and find out.
Author's Note/Disclaimer: This follows on from other stories of mine (The Sharing 'Verse), but it can be read as a stand-alone. It is also a prequel and companion-piece to A Man Married Is A Man Marred. It includes Angel getting to have nice things, alongside his usual angst buffet. Do not read it if that's not your thing.
Title: A Man Married Is A Man Marred
Prompt: All's Well That Ends Well
Character/Pairing: Buffy/Spike; Angel/Original Character. Focus is on Buffy and Angel's friendship.
Word Count: 3,772
Summary: Years of well-established coupledom under their belts, Buffy and Spike are visiting Angel and Sally in LA to hear a special announcement. Buffy realises there are some things she should probably “talk out” with Angel. Because it’s rude to scream, right?
Author's Note/Disclaimer: This follows on from other stories of mine (The Sharing 'Verse), but it can also be read as a stand-alone.
Prompt: Hot Cocoa
Character/Pairing: No pairings. Angel-centric
Word Count: 900 that are mine, plus some quotations from Sartre.
Summary: It used to be that, whenever Angel was alone and thinking about Buffy, he’d read Sonnets from the Portuguese. But ever since they’d nearly kissed again he hadn’t dared think those thoughts, let alone read them. He knew full well that reading Sartre instead was a terrible idea, but he was doing it anyway. Angel's perspective of Lovers Walk.
Author's Note/Disclaimer: This story is sympathetic to Angel. Do not read it if that's not your thing.
