Good Morning! Good Evening!

It’s Day Six of the IWRY Fic Marathon. Are you all still with me?

Today we have a beautiful and heart-wrenching story for you from Gabrielle, otherwise known as velvetwhip, and it's set in the Wishverse.

Get your favourite comfort blanket, make yourself a mug of hot chocolate with added cream, and sit down to Miscast in the Role of Destiny

Getting feedback is much better than having marshmallows on top.

Enjoy!

Jo

Listening to fear

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. I love Wishverse tales. Angel's thoughts and feelings were perfect. I could visualise every moment of his torment and his despair.

Loved the way you had him seeing images of our Buffy, the one he should have met, and not the one with the scarred lip and the all slayer attitude.

Thank you for a great story.

Velvet Whip Angel by emeraldswan

Thank you! This is my first story set in the Wishverse proper and I am tickled plaid you liked it.

I truly appreciate all the support you've given me through the years I've been participating here.

Angel at Buffy's neck

Well I think you did a wonderful job, if this is your first Wishverse tale.

As for support? Pffft! That's what writers do for each other.

Cordelia would say, "You're welcome."

Crow Angel by shanmara

I've drabbled a little and I did write a story bringing Angel from the Wishverse to the "real" 'verse, but I've never tried my hand at a true Wishverse tale before. I'm glad you think I did a credible job.

Thanks again!

well. this was just beautiful. I'm not sure how you did it, in this wishverse without hope. And yet it was.

I love reading your stories, and to have something new, and in the wish verse, written in your lovely prose...

so thanks.

Gosh! Thank you so much! I do think there can be beauty in bleakness, at least in fictional bleakness, and I am pleased you found it here.

I am flattered you enjoy my work!

Wonderful stuff, Gabrielle - just the sort of story we love from you. It gives the emotions a good going over, and yet, you create new facets where none seemed to exist before. And always so beautifully written.

Love it. :~))

I've always wondered about Angel's thoughts during this episode. Presumably, he would have still seen Buffy in LA with Whistler, she just would never have come to Sunnydale. Very interesting take on things, and I like how you don't let us forget the torment he went through with Willow & Xander in this universe.

I'm a Bloodsucking Fiend by raebird

Thank you so much! I had this bunny the moment I signed up. The empty spaces in that episode piqued my curiosity, as they did yours, and called out to me to fill them.
