Buffy folk - by mangofandango

End of 'Angel', and other Buffyverse links

(Welcome, all those whom I dragged over here from mollyringwraith! Here's some of the promised discussion...)

I'm finally done watching every episode of Angel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Firefly, so aside from the comic books and upcoming projects, I can no longer be spoiled on anything Joss Whedon has done. And I am most definitely a devoted Buffyverse fangirl who will, one of these months, go back and acquire it all on DVD and watch it all again.

Which is not to say that the last moments of Angel didn't irritate me at first. I mean, Collapse )

So, a couple good essays by writer Jennifer Crusie here:
Dating Death, detailing why romance writers love watching BtVS, particularly the Spike/Buffy dynamic
The Assassination of Cordelia Chase, on how the show's writers screwed up with Cordy's character.
Major spoilers for both of those, which I can now read! Hoorah.

And a funny cartoon about the end of "Buffy", again with spoilers: http://archive.gamespy.com/comics/dorktower/images/comics/dorktower256.jpg

So. Dang. Guess I'll decompress with some movies for a week or so, then launch into the new "Dr Who" and see how I like it.

In the meantime...one of those new Buffy comics, I hear, features a nice dream sequence picture of Collapse ) I don't suppose anyone has scanned that so I can stare at it lasciviously? Or do I have to wait till I get my own copy?
