1. If you were a sunscreen what number would you be?(From coconut baby oil to 75+) 10. I'll help you achieve your pre-cancerous glow, semi-safely.

2.Favorite BTVS/ATS writer and why?
Jane Espenson. Her sense of humor shines.

3. Any character you grew to really love AFTER the show?
Andrew - he grew on me.

4. Invent a demon/enemy for Buffy
Adrianna - Spirit of OCD. She'd cast a spell causing Buffy to spend her time polishing Mr. Pointy.

5.What Giles story did you really want to see pursued?
I wanted Giles to find love and happiness, a nice fellow demon fighter he could work with and play with.


6. Are you reading the comics? Do you like them and see them as an extension of the show? Yes and meh. They're okay, but I view them more as fan fiction than canon. The actors made the characters live; the voices in my head are insufficient.

7.Are you watching Dollhouse? Any character definitely NOT belonging in the jossverse? Yes. None comes to mind. I've seen elements of each of the major characters in Joss' other work.

8.IMO, it seems like fans are drawn to either season 3 or 5 as best season....is this your experience? Not really. Overall, 2 is my favorite of the bunch.

9. Best scene ever? Tough. Really tough. I'll skip some of the obvious ones and go with Buffy's emotional breakdown with Giles after she saves him in "Passion".

10. At series end, who did you most identify with? Giles, always. He was the adult, armed with knowledge from musty old books.

1. If you were a sunscreen what number would you be?(From coconut baby oil to 75+)
Factor 30 and totally natural ingredients! I get so frustrated that virtually all sunscreens on the shelves in high street stores are chock full of chemicals!

2.Favorite BTVS/ATS writer and why?
Jane Epenson and David Fury.

3. Any character you grew to really love AFTER the show? I invested in Whedon's Fray series of comics and that made me think of The Slayer in a wholly new light and I liked her. Does that count?

4. Invent a demon/enemy for Buffy. Some sort of uber camp Queer Eye Demon... a cross between Sweet (from Once More With Feeling - my FAVE Big Bad) and Julian Clary)

5.What Giles story did you really want to see pursued? some of his back history with the council would have been great... his teen scenes with Joyce were cringeworthy and ASH was worthy of better than that.

6. Are you reading the comics? Do you like them and see them as an extension of the show? Fray I bought & read. I also buy SFX regularly,but I suppose that's a magazine rather than comic.

7.Are you watching Dollhouse? Any character definitely NOT belonging in the jossverse? Nope

8.IMO, it seems like fans are drawn to either season 3 or 5 as best season....is this your experience? FIVE was great because it has the least naff episodes, but every series had it's highlights for me and it's cringeworthy episode.

9. Best scene ever? Going Through The Motions from Once More With Feeling was a really emotional scene. But, I really enjoyed the Life Serial episode where Buffy keeps reliving her day working at the Magic Box!

10. At series end, who did you most identify with? Two characters, actually. Anya and Jonathan... heroes both but it was rather like knowing how every episode of Star Trek ends for anyone not a 'star'... they were never going to be in that final, final shot. Story of my life!

[> Hello Ramses! -- RJA, 22:28:37 10/17/09 Sat [1] (86.1.70.139)

1. If you were a sunscreen what number would you be?(From coconut baby oil to 75+) Which is the sunscreen for those who ignore the sun?

2.Favorite BTVS/ATS writer and why? Marti Noxon. An unpopular choice, but her writing has always struck a real chord with me. She seemed to get the emotion of the show in a way few others did. But Jane Espenson would follow shortly, and I wished they gave her a few more meaty episodes in her time

3. Any character you grew to really love AFTER the show? No. Terrible as it is, I find it hard to revisit the show, so haven't really picked up a love for any characters post show. One day I plan to rewatch from start to finish, bit never find the time. Would be fascinating to find out

4. Invent a demon/enemy for Buffy I'm always bad at this stuff but maybe something that would have been a demon that traditionally went for slayers. Anything that emphasised the past for Buffy to deal with

5.What Giles story did you really want to see pursued? The future I think! Where is that ever promised Ripper spin off?

6. Are you reading the comics? Do you like them and see them as an extension of the show? No, I"m not. I massively believe that they are not an extension of the show. The show ended at season 7 and thats it. And I suppose I can understand the appeal, but I am glad that Joss said he reserves the right to undo anything that happens there if needs be. I think the actors are as much a part of the creation as any writers, so if the story continues, it can only be with them

7.Are you watching Dollhouse? Any character definitely NOT belonging in the jossverse? I am. I'm not sure its a great show, although it has great moments. I think they're making a mistake with season 2 in that they have nothing to lose yet they're treading gently. I don't think they have found a tone yet, and while it has such promise I don't think it will last the season, and partly because of that. As to characters not in the Jossverse, I think if anyone it would be Caroline. But only because we don't know her.

8.IMO, it seems like fans are drawn to either season 3 or 5 as best season....is this your experience? True to an extent yes. I think those are the most consistent seasons, as a whole. But in terms of being brave and really trying out stuff, I think that seasons 4 and 6 have probably some of the best individual moments of the show. 3 and 5 work best as a whole, but 4 and 6 were where it seems the writers were really trying to be creative, some things worked and some didn't, but there were some real highlights.

9. Best scene ever? Oh, I can't do that. Too many good ones. But scenes that spring to mind when watching the show: Willow showering in Wrecked; The Gentlemen first appearing; Buffy crying with Joyce in Innocence; Joyce lying dead; Buffy dying, both times; Xander and Xander joking about Star Trek; the final scene at the end of Chosen

10. At series end, who did you most identify with?Umm, Buffy I think. She was always the connection for me, whether or not I have anything in common with her. But then Buffy, or the show, has changed my life in so many ways, sad as it is to say. Especially as I am to marry someone I met through these boards. And I guess that's what I take from Buffy, the importance of connections, and I kind of feel that perhaps my life has taken a similar path. Without the vampires, demons and such like. But it was never about that anyway!

Great to see you back Ramses2, you have been missed! Stick around, and I look forward to seeing your own responses to your quiz

1. If you were a sunscreen what number would you be?(From coconut baby oil to 75+)


I don't know I generally don't see the sun that much because of my schedule so I'd go with Albino Block


2.Favorite BTVS/ATS writer and why?

Tim Miner or Drew Goddard, Tim because he has a lot of great ideas and lines in his episodes. Drew's cause he had only stellar episodes when he got to write them


3. Any character you grew to really love AFTER the show?

Nope I generally still hate or like the same characters since before my hate/like gauge has changed a bit in how serious I am about each.

4. Invent a demon/enemy for Buffy

I don't know.

5.What Giles story did you really want to see pursued?

Ripper as the back story to see how bad Giles truely was.

6. Are you reading the comics? Do you like them and see them as an extension of the show?

Don't read the comics.

7.Are you watching Dollhouse? Any character definitely NOT belonging in the jossverse?

Season 1 sort of dragged, season 2 I heard great stuff about but will watch it when it's all over. I have them recorded just need to let it get to the end because I like watching Joss's stuff like that recently.

8.IMO, it seems like fans are drawn to either season 3 or 5 as best season....is this your experience?

Personally I loved season 2 and 6. As great as Faith was she simply didn't have the whole thing going. I loved season 6 because of the darkness and season 2 was probably the strongest cast and guest stars.

9. Best scene ever?

The Fight scene between Spike/Buffy and Spike/Nikki in fool for Love. That was shot so cinamatically that it could have been in a movie. Add the dialouge and it's hard not to dislike it.

Angel would be the fight between him and Spike in the opera house. Once again the flashbacks with the great dialouge and fighting is why it's at the top.

10. At series end, who did you most identify with?

I always Identified with Spike alot more then the other people I could follow his line of thinking and insight. However the one I was suprised resembled me was Xander.

Wow, I haven't posted here in YEARS, but here goes...

1. If you were a sunscreen what number would you be?(From coconut baby oil to 75+)
SPF 15 b/c a girl needs a healthy glow.

2.Favorite BTVS/ATS writer and why?
Excluding Joss? Jane Espenson always cracked me up. For Angel it was Tim Minear.

3. Any character you grew to really love AFTER the show? I'm actually re-watching the entire series of both Buffy and Angel now (Finished BtVS S6 and almost done with Ats S4). I was a big Oz fan and I found Tara to be such a complete bore in comparison but I grew to like her now looking back. Made her dying much more emotional than before. Dawn isn't as nearly annoying as she was the first time around but LOVE is a strong word, I think tolerate is better.

4. Invent a demon/enemy for Buffy.
Pit her against the Dollhouse, that make the show more interesting...

5.What Giles story did you really want to see pursued? Tony Head talked about a ghost story that sounded interesting not too long ago. I'd love a "Ripper" origin story - maybe comic book form? I love Giles so *ANY* Giles story would give me a happy.

6. Are you reading the comics?
Yes. They're better in TPB, though. The tiny stories seem so uneven but all together it's much better.

7.Are you watching Dollhouse? Any character definitely NOT belonging in the jossverse?
Yes I am watching Dollhouse, but I can't say I'm actually enjoying it (except the last episode, Sierra was awesome). I'm secretly hoping for cancellation since I think Joss can do better.

8.IMO, it seems like fans are drawn to either season 3 or 5 as best season....is this your experience?
Season 3 and 5 are probably the seasons most consistently firing on all cylinders. Personally I also really loved S2. I find a lot of people really love S6 for some reason, though I don't. If I hadn't been indoctrinating my boyfriend and waiting for Dark Willow, I might have not even finished it. Too depressing and draining.

9. Best scene ever?
My favorite stand alone scene is at the end of Becoming Part 2 when Angelus has Buffy cornered in the courtyard. To me, that's the heart of the show right there.
"No weapons, no friends, no hope. Take that away and what's left?"
"Me."


10. At series end, who did you most identify with? For me, it's always been all about Buffy.

1. If you were a sunscreen what number would you be?(From coconut baby oil to 75+)
Don't know. Maybe a 15. I try to avoid the sun. Am I a vampire?!!

2.Favorite BTVS/ATS writer and why?

I think Marti Noxon wrote Surprise, one of my favs, so maybe Marti. Also Ty King, the writer of Passion, pure poetry. Of course Joss contributed to these as well. Joss also wrote Amends so Joss too. Can't choose one!!

3. Any character you grew to really love AFTER the show?
After the show? No. I loved them all. Never learned to love Dawn or Riley.

4. Invent a demon/enemy for Buffy

Buffy has too many demons already.

5.What Giles story did you really want to see pursued?

I really would have liked the Ripper series. His early history would make for great tv.

6. Are you reading the comics? Do you like them and see them as an extension of the show?

I read Angel After the Fall up to # 19 and then I quit.
I am reading all of Buffy season 8. I find the comics a little hard to follow and have to reread them often. It helps to sit down now and then and just read the whole bunch to keep things straight. I am waiting for my #31 to arrive and dread the Twilight reveal.

7.Are you watching Dollhouse? Any character definitely NOT belonging in the jossverse? No. Dollhouse is too violent and I hate the whole concept of mind wipe.

8.IMO, it seems like fans are drawn to either season 3 or 5 as best season....is this your experience? I loved both season 2 and 3. I hated season 5 because of Dawn and Glory(next to Adam, one of the worst big bads ever.)

9. Best scene ever?
The scene when Gile finds Jenny, the scene between Angel and Buffy on the hillside in Amends, too many to choose really.

10. I have always identified with Buffy. I love the character so much. Maybe that's why I hated seeing her degrade herself so much in season 6. So painful.
