glossing posted her 'mourning Angel' song.

Mine is here: Lullaby for a Weary World (right-click, save), by TJ Burnside Clapp, performed by Julia Ecklar; hosted at the Virtual Filksing.

I've had it in mind for an ironic Jasmine-POV vid since the second I heard it; now it's suddenly a non-ironic ode to the Buffyverse. (And, admittedly, a hope that Angel will against many odds be picked up by another network.)

Pardon me while I go all scary overdramatic fan here, but yeah. This is the first fandom I've ever had where I've actually been part of the fandom, and I'm sad, and pissed, and mildly hopeful, and overdramatic.

ETA: I'm not so incredibly shallow as to not have my first association with this song be the actual fucked-up state of the actual world, by the way. Been there, had that wallow. Just can't help associating anything and everything with fandom because hey, geek. In case anybody missed that newsflash. :)

Been visiting all the people i usually visit on LJ in much the same way as friends gather when someone passes. You're the first writer of fanfiction who made me fall in love with the genre (and Spike and Xander together), and that was just a little bit after the beginning of my very first, and only, fandom. Too old for that kind of thing. Loved lots of shows over the years, followed them, put aside the relevant week nights for them, but never ever got drawn into an entire world as I did with BtVS and AtS. And now I've just started writing fanfiction myself--seems the inevitable progression of the disease--and Angel is over. I'm holding on to the faint hope that it will be picked up elsewhere, but getting ready for getting a grip tomorrow, in clearer morning light, on my sense of sadness.

Shaking my head.

I'm still pollyanna enough to hope that it gets picked up elsewhere as well. I like my denial bubble.

Ditto and amen. I was only dipping my baby toe in compared to you and many of the other wonderful people I've met in this fandom, but the news that it may *all* be over is...well, I feel kind of ill. I hated losing Buffy but I could still have Angel. Now? I feel like it's college graduation and everyone is going to scatter to the wind...

(talk about sad, pissed and overdramatic. *depressed sigh*)

FWIW I don't think the *fandom* is going to scatter to the wind. Too many obsessed weirdos deeply devoted people. ;-)

...picked up by another network

Hey! That reminds me! Didn't UPN take the option to grab Angel if the WB cancelled it? I'm pretty certain they did. So maybe....?

They did, but I believe that was only if the WB cancelled it before the 100th episode, or possibly 'within the next 2 years.' Basically that option is up as far as I know, either way. (Which doesn't mean UPN won't take it -- just that they're not obligated to.)

That's a gorgeous song. And, man, I'm just-- *sighs*

I love the song deeply. It's obviously about bigger things than one fictional world getting shut down, but it still pinged for me, especially as I had it in mind for describing the AtS world from Jasmine's somewhat warped POV, already.
