Dreaming Sideways
Stories teach us who we are. Read. Write. Be.

Welcome to the home of fan fiction by Eliza Shaw (aka Liz Shaw, aka SpeakingSilence). Stories are mostly in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel fandoms with brief forays into The Sentinel, Firefly, and Stargate Atlantis.

I'm delighted, honored, and fairly surprised that anyone still manages to find this place with updates being so few and far between in recent times. Please feel free to explore to your heart's content, and let me know if anything comes crashing down (for which I apologize in advance, since I recognize the limits of my coding skills.)


Fan Fiction [20]
Stories based on television, movies, books, comics, songs, ads, billboards, podcasts, and any other media that might at some point catch my fancy.
Non-Fiction [0]
Essays, critiques, investigations, musings, and other purportedly truthful, factual, and real writings.

Spring Cleaning
by Eliza Shaw on 13 May 2012 1:34 PM

Reviews have been turned off as I try to wade through the junk (almost 60,000 at last count) and edit it out. It's time for a late spring cleaning and perhaps a return to more regular management and updating.

Mostly Dead but not All Dead
by Eliza Shaw on 19 Dec 2010 1:22 AM

So, here another couple of years have gone by, I've once again lost and had to rediscover how to access my own site. But now with that hurdle behind me, I've added two stories that were missing and cleaned out the reviews that were a mix of word-salad and unwelcome ad links. Perhaps 2011 will be the year for more updates?

Annual Update
by Eliza Shaw on 08 Jun 2008 4:37 PM

After not doing appropriate backup to my hard drive, experiencing hard drive failure, trusting a local PC repair company to fix but instead lose my whole computer, I have finally figured out how to access this site again with the new computer.

I'm working on adding story updates and re-learning how the site works a year later. This time I bring new categories for stories and a couple new stories with the hope of better computer luck in the next year.
