Angel/Doyle shipper but not rabid because see Angel/Wes.
Angel/Spike shipper but not rabid because see Angel/Wes.

Giles/Ethan historical shipper though it takes a rather good story to get me to like them as a current pairing.

(If a shipper, I [a - am rabid] [b - am not rabid because _______]
If a hater, I [a - hate the relationship because I am a conflicting shipper] [b - hate it based on its own lack of merits] [c - both] )


I am conflicted about Buffy because a and b, with b being her general whiney victimhood, self-centeredness and lack of emotional appeal to me post Season 4, with sporadic exceptions. I am a non-Spuffy Spike-lover.

I like/love Xander.
I like/love Anya.
I like/love Willow.
I like/love Tara.
I like/love Dawn
I like/love Giles pre Buffy Season 7.
I am conflicted about Giles in Buffy Season 7 because he was eaten by pod people.
I like/love Oz.
I like/love Cordy pre Angel Season 3.
I hate Cordy post Angel Season 3.
I am ambivalent about Riley.
I like/love Gunn.
I like/love Wesley.
I like/love Doyle.
I like/love Angel.
I like/love Lorne.
I like/love Fred; I just don't like writing that turns her into the solution to every problem and the apple of everyone's eye.


I hate Darla. Because she's a raging selfish bitch. But dramatically, I have no problem with her character.
I am conflicted about Andrew. He's funny, but I still think he's weaselly.
I hate Kennedy. She has no redeeming characteristics.
I like Lilah. Most of the time.
I hate Warren, and truly don't get Warren redemptionists. I don't have a problem with 'em, just don't get 'em.
I am ambivalent about Lindsey.
I love Ethan Rayne.

(If any answer but like/love, this is because of [a - Buffy's treatment of Spike] [b - other])

I dislike being asked to compare Angel and Spike, though I have more personal love for Spike.

I have liked Spike since Season 4.

I have liked Wes since Angel Season 1.

My favorite characters are Xander, Spike, non-pod Giles, and Wes.

I care about those characters more, but have an interest in the whole production.

I am a strong but not rabid Spike fan, and a strong but not rabid Xander fan. I am not rabid because I possess a sense of proportion and a nodding acquaintance with reality.

I am keeping an open mind; Christ, we're only 3 episodes in -- shut up already! And yes I'm thoroughly spoiled and still keeping an open mind.

I am unsure about Real Person Fiction. Yes, even though I've written it. I think there are points on both sides of the argument.

I am a slash fan and writer.

I have been a fan since 1990 and am not part of the recent influx of "trendy" slashers because that's a good seven years before the series I currently write slash for even existed.

I am a spoiler whore.

I will place spoilers behind cut-tags, barring accidents.


Please add any pertinent fannish credentials not specified above or answers to the listed questions which do not fit the provided options, in the blank space at the end of the sheet. Be sure to give specific attention to pet peeves, fans you like/dislike/have vowed to scratch out the eyes of, Mutant Enemy insiders who may read your LJ, correct plot predictions you have made, and whether you consider icon-stealing to be a mortal or venal sin.

Angel/Spike and Giles/Ethan? Canon.

Pet peeves: Nummy as an endearment, whelp as a nickname for Xander, Slutty as a nickname for Buffy, bad characterisation, *especially* of characters the writer, whether fan or pro, doesn't like.

I like the people on my friends list and many who aren't.
I dislike rude, hateful people and non-congenital idiots.
I have vowed to scratch out the eyes of miss_f_travers.
No Mutant Enemy insiders read my journal, that I am aware of.
zortified and I predicted that in an alternate future Dawn would have a perfectly normal boyfriend named Justin, long before All The Way ever aired.

There are Warren redemptionists? Really? Whoa. They know it was WILLOW in Warren's body, right? I mean, I think Adam Busch is hot, but DUDE.

Now you realize I'm going to have to write some Warren fic. Because dude, he's so misunderstood.


2003-10-16 06:24 pm (UTC) (Link)

Yeah there really are, Willow ruined Warren/Andrew's pure gay love omg! (really the warren redemptionists and kittens should get together as they often both accuse Joss of homophobia and hatin' thier OTP) If you're actually intrested in that nature of insanity here is good place to see it :(


2003-10-16 06:27 pm (UTC) (Link)

I get the Warren/Andrew, and I guess I understand wanting to redeem Warren in fic, to make the Warren/Andrew happen in a non-tragic way -- that's cool with me.

Seriously don't get the thoughtpath that leads to Warren = not evil/Willow = teh enemy in canon, though.

Seriously don't get the thoughtpath that leads to Warren = not evil/Willow = teh enemy in canon, though.
Teh Crazy? eh I don't get it either and I think Warren's a sick bastard which is why I'll just be here in the corner reading Xandrew...

Seriously fluffy!warren is skerrrrry

Heeeeee. I was actually. Sorry :P


2003-10-16 06:27 pm (UTC) (Link)

I hate Warren but love AB, so I can see having affection for him. But for redemption, there has to be some sign of pulling up out of the moral nose dive, yeah?


2003-10-16 06:32 pm (UTC) (Link)

There's a distinct lack of Ethan in the above. But you get points for mentioning certain daddy's girls. ;-)


2003-10-16 07:42 pm (UTC) (Link)

I noticed that. I mentioned Ethan.

Not 'cause I love you or anything. Nope.


2003-10-17 06:56 am (UTC) (Link)

I have no idea what you are talking about.

I filled it out. To the best of my ability.


I'm really not sure if you were making fun of me, or if you were just being ironic, but I filled it out anyways.



2003-10-17 07:02 am (UTC) (Link)

Meep! Okay, you filled it out completely. I'll go back and redo my answers.


2003-10-17 07:28 am (UTC) (Link)

Hee! Lemme think -- I'm sure I was thinking m/m slash at the time, but it applies to any slash, really. And yeah, the rabid thing was inspired by people arguing over the use of the word, so it's totally a joke. I don't have a problem with it being used to descibe a group of people whose behavior is kind of insane, when it's applied that way (i.e. I didn't have a problem with TBQ's post addressed to rabid Spikefen, because I thought she did a pretty good job of describing exactly what kind of behavior seems rabid to her) but I hate the idea that fans of any particular thing should *need* to define why they're not 'rabid' before their opinion can be weighed in, which seems to be prevalent all over BUffy fandom these days.


2003-10-17 07:23 am (UTC) (Link)

Making fun of you? Like, specifically, or just poking fun at Buffy fandom in general? Because it's #2 -- I wasn't aiming any of the questions at specific people, and none of them were even inspired by anything you've said, that I can think of. :) Well, maybe in general the specificity of the RPF question came from the detail that all of the discussions went to, but I'm as conflicted as you on that, so it's aimed at myself as much as anything.


2003-10-17 08:21 am (UTC) (Link)

I got really bored.



2003-10-17 08:31 am (UTC) (Link)

Yes, you did! *g*
