cordelianne: (Buffy in Action)
For the last 2 years on Valentine’s Day, I’ve posted love letters to Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. Since I’ve now written to my beloved Buffyverse shows, I had initially thought maybe I’d write about one of my favourite cancelled shows like say Everwood, Gilmore Girls, My So-Called Life or Joan of Arcadia. Now these are shows I love, but you know what? I’m not feeling the inspiration to write about any of them. And I’ve realized why that is. Because I’ve re-discovering my passion for the Buffy fandom!

It all started when I randomly thought it would be a neat idea to adopt [ profile] spring_with_xan. After deciding to act on this whim, it’s been a whirlwind of fannish fabulousness! I’ve been experiencing what makes us join fandom in the first place: fun, awesome and talented people coming together to celebrate their shared fannish passion. I think that sometimes when there’s things like wanks, or LJ policy changes, or even just not a lot of people posting fic on our flists, it’s hard to remember why we’re part of fandom. But negativity isn’t all there is! I’ve been overwhelmed by the generosity and kindness of fellow fans – it’s pretty awesome that there’s people who happily offer to create layouts and icons, give modding advice and even re-organize tags! It has me basking in fandom love!

And not just any fandom, my heart is still firmly planted in my one true fandom: the Buffyverse. Why the Buffyverse is my OT Fandom )


cordelianne: (Vmars Dick Is...)
This post contains only good news! Things that are making me happy and will hopefully make you happy too!

1. Thanks to everyone who voted in my 'Decide cordelianne’s TV Watching Schedule for Her' POLL - you have helped me!! Brief run-down of which shows I'm cutting from my schedule - all chosen by YOU )

2. Veronica Mars is loved by all! Or at least those of you who voted in my poll. You all approve of me watching it! I'm pretending that Gilmore Girls got similar love instead of a surprising amount of horrified votes.

3. AWESOME Veronica Mars news!!! On [ profile] vm_navigator (which is a great newsletter because it really seems to cover a lot of the VM fandom as well as interesting VM news) I read that for those who live in Ontario, Veronica Mars has been picked up for the Fall 2006 schedule on SunTV (I think that's channel 15 in Toronto), in simulcast with the CW on Tuesdays at 9PM EST! Currently you needed digital cable, satellite or internet help to see the episodes close to when the show aired in the U.S. This also means I won't need to keep lending my tapes out as much!

4. According to a reliable source (okay, a co-worker but he's normally right about this stuff), Battlestar Galactica Season 3 will be airing in Canada (on the Space channel) only a day after it airs in the U.S. (Saturday night)!!! This is awesome news and means I won't need to use the internet to see the episodes. Also, now my friends and I will all be at the same point and I won't be trying to remember back to something I saw months ago when we talk about the show!

5. When I scanning through "the Initiative" to check details for my Giles/Xander drabble (ie. Is Xander wearing long sleeves? Do they have military gear?) I declared to my friend OMG I love this show even on fast-forward! I then stopped to watch Riley punch Parker and giggle gleefully. It's just so wonderful to still be so filled with love for BtVS after so many years.

6. I read this lovely Anne of Green Gables Anne & Gilbert ficlet by [ profile] cherusha: Echo. It feels like a lost scene from the movie or book!!

It's a good thing that the most responses to my poll's question "Am I too obsessed with television?" were "Obsessed? Sure. But that’s what I love about you" ... because every item but one is related to television!! Oh, and I'm using this icon because it always makes me smile and hopefully will make you all smile too. *hugs*

What would Buffy do?

cordelianne: (Xander "Need Buffy")
Today I was exercising with the tv on the station which plays Buffy the Vampire Slayer repeats, and "The Freshman" was airing. It was great background for working out, until the scene when Xander gives Buffy his Dadaist pep talk, because it made me cry. I've seen every BtVS episode a ridiculous amount of times yet there are certain moments that get me every time, even if I'm in the middle of Pilates. I just love this speech so much:

Xander: Buffy, I've gone through some fairly dark times in my life, faced some scary things, among them the kitchen at 'The Fabulous Ladies Night Club.' Let me tell you something, when it's dark and I'm all alone and I'm scared or freaked out or whatever, I always think, 'What would Buffy do?' You're my hero. Ok, sometimes when it's dark and I'm all alone I think, 'What is Buffy wearing?'
Buffy: Can that be one of those things you never, ever, tell me about?

For some reason this got me thinking about the various fandoms and obsessions that I've had over the years, so I thought I'd list a few of my favourite fan obsessions and embarrassing fan activities (some of these are from when I was very young). Feel free to tell me your shameful fan moments!! Here's mine: )

I also did that Birthday meme, and the answers for September 2nd are here. )

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Friday night!!

Yesterday was one of those crappy days when everything took way longer than it should, and I was constantly in the wrong line-up. To stop feeling cranky and tired, I starting thinking about BtVS and AtS (as I do from time to time – hee!). I love when I’m watching an episode and suddenly there’s a moment when I realize “I love this character”!! I’ve noticed that sometimes my favourite character moments are not in my favourite BtVS episodes, and sometimes that’s exactly why an episode is in my top 10 list. So here’s where my thoughts led me:

The episode in which I fell in love with the BtVS characters )

I’m interested in what made you fall in love with the characters. I also suspect that some of you are shocked that I’ve left out characters who you love, or that I included certain characters. Tell me about it!! Let’s share the love for BtVS!!!

I’m planning to post my AtS list tomorrow in which Angel, Cordelia and Faith will reappear and Wesley, Darla and Dru will be discussed (I associate them much more with AtS which is why they weren’t on this list).


My Love Letter to Buffy the Vampire Slayer

I wish dating was like slaying: you know, simple, direct, stake to the heart, no muss, no fuss. (btvs 2:16)

Since the state of my actual love life is dicey, I decided to be all sappy and sentimental about my favourite tv show instead. My Love Letter to Buffy the Vampire Slayer )
