But you don't know me so I'll introduce myself. Smile Hi, I'm Genesis, and I've been a Buffy fan for over ten years. I'm 22. I like to read fanfic, particularly fanfic that paints a portrait of Buffy and Angel in a believable way. I still want those two crazy kids to work it out somehow. That doesn't mean I won't even entertain ideas of them with different people, because I will. But every time I rewatch seasons 2 & 3 I have to go wrap myself up in some B/A for awhile. It always surprises me how little fanfic is devoted to the pair compared to the overwhelming amount of Spuffy, but I guess it's really hard to top what Joss already put out there on screen for them, whereas it's very easy to "fix" what was wrong between Spike and Buffy. I've liked a lot of Spuffy fanfic but of course on the show it was a greatly upsetting relationship for everyone involved (me, them, ratings!). After the season 6 finale I stopped watching the show and only picked it back up again at the end of 2006.

Other than loving Buffy, I'm also a college student living in Florida so I spend a lot of time at the beach doing beach stuff. Other times I'm doing school stuff, and sometimes I even try to write fanfic too although I've never actually put anything out there. I've got a few stories I'm hoping will eventually shape up a little more to put out there. And that's about it about me!

Oh, there is heaps of B/A fanfiction, of all types. You will find some here on the forum, and also on our website, Blood Roses. And that's just for starters!

Hi Genesis. I know I'm late but can I blame it on the Easter break?

Good to have new *blood* here at the forum, and, no, we're not vampires. Wink

I've been reading some of your comments on some of the old topics, and it's nice to see. It's very interesting reading others' points of view.

As for the little amount of fanfic devoted to B/A compared to B/S, it wasn't always this way. Early in the shows it was all B/A, and not until Angel left Buffy, and Spike start to fall in love with Buffy in S5, did the B/S begin. Can I call it BS? Shocked

Still, as you've entered the hallowed halls of B/A, I think I know which ship you prefer. :0)

Hugs
