Hey, people! Longtime Buffy/Angel fan and I've been lurking here a couple months. Love for B/A was rekindled when I pulled out dusty DVDs and indulged in a marathon around Christmas. Was directed to this little community when I happened upon the Project Paranormal site in search of B/A fan fic. Nice place you have here.

I do have to admit, I abandoned BTVS during season six and Angel in season three. I had a serious problem with the way TPTB seemed to be deliberately belittling the B/A romance, but I guess that's another topic.

Anyhoo, glad to be here and looking forward to reading fanfic and discussing, gushing and grousing about all things Buffy/Angel.

Nice to meet you! Especially since your name is-- well, check out the fic I recently posted in that forum. Smile

I stuck with the show the whole way through, though I could never stop thinking about how great it would be if AtS ended after the second season, erasing all the garbage that entered it after that point and freeing up Angel to return to BtVS when it really needed him.

Don't you love being part of a fandom where the fans wish there was less of the show? XD

Welcome, Joy! *waves*

There were a lot of things I disliked that happened in Angel that I wished hadn't happened, but in all things, I did like the fact that Angel became more. That he ran his own team - yes, even when he wasn't - and developed skills that he lacked over in Buffy. One being, he was no longer just Buffy's boyfriend but a leader and a shaker and had his own destiny and mission. We can write stories to get Buffy and Angel together, can't we, just to fix Joss' mistakes. :0)

Sorry...I got carried away. But that's what we're here for, to talk, compare notes, to read fics, to keeping the dream alive.

Kairos, already read that little gem and loved it!

Oh my God, I was amazed by them. Loved how it was structured into seasons and the plot lines and peripheral characters were fabulous. It's funny, but I think I loved the interaction and growth between Giles and Angel more than the Buffy/Angel moments. Wouldn't mind seeing a Project Paranormal "movie fic" cause I'd love to know what happened to them.

Good. I deliberately played down the B/A aspect of the series because I wanted people to focus on the stories better.

What happened? Nearly everyone survives and B/A live - mostly - happily ever after…

But sadly, there will be no follow-up story. The girls and I are willing, but we now have other commitments. I've had surprisingly few requests for a follow up so I have to wonder if there is still the interest around to warrant it.
