Spoilerphob, anyone?

Anyone else other than me who find it very hard to stay away from spoilers, either because you're too curious or the spoilers are right there in your face, hard to avoid (like the Buffy+Satsu and the Twilight reveals)?

Anyway, SFX has a test to determine How Spoilerphobic Are You?

From The Shroud of Rahmon (Ats S2).

"A reference to Wolfram & Hart's plot to use Darla against Angel was excised from the final aired version: 'Wolfram & Hart's plan, to scramle Angel's brain with eggs à la Darla till he can't even see straight, much less fight the Big Bad.'

Weekly feature: What to buy?

Like trading cards? Then the Buffy&Angel sketch cards selling on ebay from time to time might be for you.

Like this Angel card.

Weekly feature: Excerpt from original script

From Judgement, this scene to be specific.

"When Angel breaks one of Cordelia's glass animals, she complain about the agency using her place for headquarters. Her line changed between original script and final airing.
The original version was:

'My landlady keeps saying, 'you better not be running a business up there, I hear a lot of noise' and I keep telling her, 'no businss, just wild orgies'.'

But the line was changed too:
'Why can't we work out of Wes's?'"

Saving Angel: After the fall

This is a premium format custom made by willowswarlok. The word you're looking for is Wow!

It's not scene specific, he made it from the buyers specifications, but I really don't care. It's 20-ish inches of awesomeness (I assume it's about 20" since it's made from this or this statue).

Look here for more info and photos.

Can you name all the episodes?

I did the Buffy one, and it was very hard for me. Episodes I've seen the day before was gone from my memory. I was stuck at 106 and trying to spell Doppelgangland when the time was out.

Buffy test

Angel test

There other Whedon tests on that site as well.

A comic adaptation we'll probably never see.

Ryan has colored a previously uncolored "cover" for a adapted comic of the Ats season 4 episode Orpheus that might never be realized, due to the Angel license returning to Darkhorse.

Look at the uncolored version on Elena Casagrande's(the penciler's) blog, and at the colored version.

Ryan has also done some (fan)coloring of the interior work for the Illyria mini-series Haunted, issue 1, page 2.


Ryan re-did the Orpheus art. Lookie

Weekly feature: What to buy?

Comics Alliance has posted a list of pop culture vampire merchandise that sucks, among them a stake prop replica from Buffy.

The article

It is weird that I want so many things on that list? I will one day have the courage to display that sparkly dildo on a shelf (so not for using, because displaying used dildos=yuuuuuuuck).

Weekly feature: Excerpt from original script

From Triangle (BtVS, S5).

"'Um ... Giles? Could you maybe make an angry face? 'Cause the smile is kind of scaring me.'
In an early draft of the script, Willow cowers as Giles returns from England early and surveys the damage to The Magix Box.

Funny catch.

I found this a bit funny when watching Witch (BtVS, S1).

"WILLOW: You're not invisible to Buffy.

XANDER: It's worse! I'm just like a part of the scenery, like an old shoe. Or a rug that you walk on every day but don't even really see it.

WILLOW: Like a pen that's all chewed up, and you know you should throw it away, but you don't, not 'cause you like it so much, more 'cause you're just used to...

XANDER: Will, yeah, that is the point, you don't have to drive it through my head like a railroad spike. I'm gonna take your advice and not beat around the bush."

Remind you of Spike got his name according to Giles' book in School Hard (BtVS, S2)?

"GILES: Our new friend Spike. He's known as 'William the Bloody'. Earned his nickname by torturing his victims with railroad spikes. Very pleasant."

Probably means nothing, no foreshadowing or anything, but it made me giggle.

More unreleased covers *spoilers*

I found - on the same site as for the cover below - two uncolored unreleased covers for issue 2 & 3 of the Illyria mini series Haunted (I think the cover for issue 2 have been seen on Buffyfest's blog).

Issue 2
Graphite & white pencil over printout

Issue 3
Graphite & white pencil over printout

Unreleased cover *spoilers*

I don't think the finished cover for issue 41 of the on-going Angel series has been showed yet, but I found the original art by Jenny Frison on Cadence Comic Art, a site that sells original art from different comics books artists (I would link, but some people I gave the link to said their security programmes warned about viruses).

So here it is:


Graphite & white pencil over outprint

Wesley love Angel

That's what these two posters spell out anyway.

I have no idea if they're from the same magazine or not (I think so since the seller is selling another couple of posters with Angel&Buffy and Angel&Cordy that look like they're a pair since Buffy's shoulder is a part of the Angel&Cordy poster) I just now that I have to buy them (they're on a Swedish auction site) and display them next to each other.

I wonder if the artist realized that's what they said, or if it's accidental. I like to think he/she is a slash-shipper. :D


Here's the posters (when the auctions finishes they will eventually disapear).

Weekly feature: Excerpt from original script

From Sleeper, when Buffy thinks Spike might be killing again and asks the gang to help her investigate.

"In the original teleplay it takes Anya a little longer to come up with an excuse for being in Spike's room:
'I... am here, obviously, because of the reason which I am about to tell you, with the following words, and that reason is... uh, clearly and obviously too, um... sex.'"

Aired version here.

Weekly feature: What to buy?

Halloween is my second favorite holiday (Christmas is hard to beat), and if I had money, I would go full out and buy yellow contacts, fangs and buy a vamp mask, to look like a real Buffyverse-vamp with the help of this, or this. (I've seen a couple of better pieces by reel magic on ebay, but I'm not sure they're up now).

Sadly, I think I might just be able to afford the contacts. Too much money to spend for one night, considering that I don't have a job, just student loan.

Maybe I should just do what Oz did in the episode Fear Itself, and go as God.

PS. If you're more of a wannabe fangbanger than fang-wanna be, check this out.

My news minis arrived.

My mini customs made by vampspike has arrived!


12£ per mini (24£ for both Spike & Buffy) is a bit much for such a small collectible (about 1,5"), but they're so cute!

What did Buffy say? NSFW

Remember the space sex in the last Season 8 arc? Hard to forget if you've read it. Hell, even non season 8 readers know about it.

Anyway, the empty talk bubble in space made the people Comics Alliance think; What was Buffy saying? They came up with a some fun alternatives.

The article

Have you read it now? Can come up with something better? Please post it below.

I think it would be awesome if she yelled out "Xaaaaandeeeer!" Would make sense too. Or "Spiiiiikeeee!"

There was a few fun ideas in the comments section to that article. Here's one:
"Burn the land and boil the sea, you can't take the sky from me!"(from Firefly's theme song).

Whedonesque members had some fun ideas too, among them:
"Angel! Are you asleep?" and
"Oh Angel, you've got such big... hair"
