So I have been reading the Mark Watches recaps of Buffy and Angel and for most part it's the same super fun that is watching the show anew with a new person. I typically have to skip the comments, though, because of the random Xander hate (it's even worse than the vintage Xander hate I'm immune to) and because A LOT of these new viewers seem SUPER young and are hyper sensitive/triggered by anyone saying anything sexual to anyone ever.

However, after today's recap of "The Initiative," a new viewer commented on the fact that you can briefly see Spike's reflection in the glass in the Initiative holding cells. They went on to say, "I realized that was a technical error, because at first I thought he was supposed to be a ghost, and he's already undead, so it would just be silly if he were a ghost."

Ahahahahahahhaha. Indeed.

So now I'm sitting here with a goofy grin on my lips, shipping Spike/Willow, calling Jonah "my little mentholated pack of smokes" and thinking of the baby Buffies, "You think you know ... what's to come ... what you are. You haven't even begun."

I will never be multi-fannish. I know this. I am a Cocker Spaniel of fandom loyalty. My Buffyverse investment wanes and ebbs, but it never subsides. It's currently cranked up to 11. I've been spending my snow days re-watching eps (currently season seven, two and five, in no particular order) and reading and re-reading fic (and leaving comments because I am AWESOME!) uploading fic to archives and reading old meta and scribbling a line or two of fic (yeah, I have no illusions about how that will turn out) and all-out wallowing in a love for the Buffyverse that will never die. It pops out of my subconscious in random quotes and geeky non sequiturs. Reading the fic makes me want to be a better writer; watching the show makes me want to be a better person. And to quote the prescient Miss Dionne Warwick, I know I'll never love this way again.

And I'm pretty much exhausting [ profile] cityphonelines and [ profile] lunabee34 with my shiny (old) obsession. So.

IP logging is always off (stalk me, all ye young and tender maidens) anonymous comments are always on: Ask me anything about the Buffyverse. About 'ships (canon and unconventional.) About plotlines controversial or contrived. About characters and my love or lack thereof. About the Buffy fandom that was, and what little I see of the Buffy fandom that is. Ask my opinion of a fic you wrote if you want honesty (I'll squee if I squee, I'll email if I concrit.) Ask me about a fic I wrote, or one I didn't write, or one I should have. Ask me about Buffy's coats or Xander's shoes, Cordy's hair or Giles' eyes. Ask me why I love Xander, or why I love, hell, Vi. I don't care.

Ask me anything, just let me talk about my Buffy-love because Caza's heard it all for 10 years and Jonah's 18-month-old contribution is to yell, "Kitty-cat!" whenever Angel vamps out and growls. (I shit you not -- it's a thing of beauty and joy forever.)

ASK ME ANYTHING -- as long as you're humming Nerf Herder under your breath.

I didn't mean to bomb my flist, but the QaF DVD I had planned to watch instead arrived from Netflix cracked in half. This has been an ongoing problem. The first disc wouldn't play past the first episode. The second disc had wonky sound. And now this one. If I didn't believe in rightwing conspiracies before...denied hot boy on boy action! So my choices are watch Big Brother with [ profile] elcazavampiros , watch my weiner dog molest his dog bed or post unecessarily. You go with your strengths!

I'm burning a "back in the day" cd for my college roommate's birthday. I can honestly say that it is the one time in my life I can listen to a New Kids song with a smile on my face. I was a little too old to be a Donny or Danny girl, but it brings back memories of very under-age drunken night at Eskimo Joe's. Funny thing about drunken college nights - I can't imagine making another cd that mixes The Cure, The Eagles and (hah!) Warrant.

Ah, suddenly I'd like a Sonic slush with everclear...okay, not really. I can't honestly decide if I'm sad or relieved that the sticky southern nights of climbing barb wire fences to pee, random kissage, tire fires, and Bon Jovi sing-a-longs are behind me. Yeah, I'm going with relieved.
