Rated NC-17 ♥ Buffy, Spike and Angel in the future.
Buffy The Vampire Slayer premiered in 1997 and ran until 2003.
Wow, Lulurose, two really great articles! I hadn't read the Battis/Slayage one, though I read Slayage a lot. It was so beautifully written, so dense with subject matter and he was so touchingly open about his own depression and other problems that it made we want to buy his book, which I will look for . There were so many subjects to discuss in it, for example, poverty and wealth - the way Cordelia and Fred live out their privilege. But I don't think they were privileged in the same way, though both seem to come from affluent families, Cordelia's family was really rich until the IRS caught up with them, which means they were basically crooks, and Fred's parents, although they can afford a trip abroad, and to send their daughter to a very good university, aren't rich like Cordelia's were, or with a different attitude anyway...so much to think about. Thank you for posting! I'm not up on the comics, waiting for the TPB's so i can't comment on what's happening in the Buffyverse - but I have read some fierce criticism online -that Spike and Angel have become caricatures of themselves...I hope its not true. I hope to find out soon...
Slayer Slang: A Buffy theVampire Slayer Lexicon.
Thank you for posting the article links - I will read and then we can all discuss - I feel like I really need some Spike and Spuffy and Buffyverse Love right now. I have to admit, that the last two issue of A&F have made me very sad - especially with a dark ff story that I read recently, I am wanting very much to get a reminder of why I have such an admiration for the Buffyverse.
