Season 11, Issue 10

"Crimes Against Nature"

Writer: Christos Gage, Artwork: Megan Levens & Dan Jackson, Letters: Richard Starkings & [Comicraft's] Jimmy Betancourt
Cover: Steve Morris





Blurb: Buffy the Vampire Slayer has been saving the world from the forces of darkness since she was a teenager. Alongside her vampire boyfriend Spike; her best friends, Wiccan Willow Rosenberg and normal guy Xander Harris; her sister Dawn; and her formerly old but now magically reborn as a thirteen-year-old mentor Giles, Buffy has found nothing they can’t face together… until now.

After a supernatural attack decimated San Francisco, the government forced magical beings into an internment camp. After Buffy, Willow, Spike, and Faith staged a breakout, elements in the government faked a massacre by vampire escapees... as an excuse to enact plans to drain supernatural beings of their magic!

A step closer to the conspiracy head.Collapse )

Angel
[DH S11, My S9], Issue 7

“Time and Tide” part III





Writer: Corinna Bechko, Art: Zé Carlos & Michelle Madsen, Letters: Richard Starkings & [Comicraft’s] Jimmy Betancourt
Cover: Scott Fischer

Blurb: When young Liam was turned into a vampire, he became exceptionally bad. Under the name Angelus, for hundreds of years he reveled in killing and left horror in his wake. In 1898, he received his comeuppance through a gypsy curse that returned to him his soul and his conscience. Now known as Angel, he has been trying to make up ever since for all that he did as a soulless, evil monster.

Winifred "Fred" Burkle is a brilliant and quirky physicist who has been through her own series of mystical events and works with her friend Angel to make the world safer. Fred shares her body with an Old One, a goddess named Illyria; it's weird, but it seems to be working out.

A vision of future doom connected to his past has sent Angel and Illyria on a mission traveling through time. Aboard a nineteenth-century cargo ship, Angel and Fred sought a mysterious treasure that might have had a connection to the future -- but finding it has instead brought the pair face to face with Angelus and Darla, and unleashed a plague of insects and zombies… in the middle of a pirate attack!


How do Angel and Fred get off a burning wreck, while lost at sea??Collapse )

Plagued by a vision of doom that is connected to his past, Angel is traveling through time with the help of Illyria. Aboard a cargo ship in the nineteenth century, Angelus and Darla missed connecting with an artifact that Angel believes might be the key to saving the future; unfortunately, Angel and Fred have not been able to avoid Angelus and Darla…
Fred and Angel come under attacks by demonic bugs and pirates... & then there is Angelus and Darla!Collapse )

Anyone who creates FanVids... I WANT anything that incorporates Faith beating the hell outta that brat, Connor.

I know. I understand his angst. I like him, because of the actor. I like him more in the IDF comics.

But Faith, beating Connor to show him the difference between super powers and skill... Oh, it's so beautiful.

I want it. Over and Over.


In the meantime, here is MY LIST OF YOUTUBE FAVORITES... which includes... well... look it's all over the map. Just watch them and love or hate 'em... and comment here and at the creators' posts. Geez, do I really need to beg?

;-)

What do you hate about fanfic?

For me, it's any vid in which a strong character ends up committing suicide. For my personal edifaction, it's Buffy and Dean. I loathe where I'm all into an emotional video that has done such a great job in incorporating SMG or Jensen, and then have the vid 'climax' in a suicide of the character, without justification!

Look. I know it's all angsty and shit, but Buffy has literally sent the love of her life to a certain Hell, and Dean has been through torture in Hell and back. They are NOT the characters to give up easily and jump off a roof or blow their brains out! THEY JUST AREN'T.

I don't care if SMG was in a film in which she jumped off a building to escape Samara, or Dean put a bullet into his doppleganger, which makes it easy to have one of these characters choose to 'end it all'. The characters themselves just WOULD NOT do this. They've proven this over and over.

I don't know what angst you're trying to work out, but it is a real bummer when I'm into what you got going, just to have you end with one of these two characters end it because, "I'm sad, and it's tragic..." ... NEITHER OF THESE CHARACTERS WOULD REACT THIS WAY.  They just wouldn't.

God'dammit, stop blowing it at the end with an entirely OOC moment, just to enact your personal angst, or put something on the characters that they'd never, ever do, and would fight in the face of.

Buffy and Dean both have been through too much to see them choosing to 'take the easy way out' [I know... personally... it's a misnomer], when both are such fuckin' fighters.

And just for context... "SEE THIS" ... for Dean and Buffy interacting. Where neither is jumping off a building or putting a gun to their own head.

And on the other side-- go read this RECOMMEND if you're into The Walking Dead and Supernatural crossovers.

Sometimes you see two actors, and it's only in a fan-vid, and you say, "Hell, Yes!! Why!? Why don't their agents and the studios see what I see, god'dammit?!"


I feel this way about Matt Smith and Amy Acker.

Why, oh why, haven't these two professionals been working together?!


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZ1QuXrSzsQ&list=PLPne2lxSwHJAhZ1ETxIiFg4c7t-pmzsWq&index=61


Look. I'm not insane. These two have it... the chemistry... to make it work. Let Them Co-Star Together, Damn It!


Please... post if you have 2 actors who never worked together, but their scenes via fanvids inspired that it was natural and should happen. I Want To See!
I don't care if it's straight, gay, bi, trans, curious, or "if it's you, it's okay"... I just want to see what FANS are inspired by....

Supernatural: Hell House
Writer: Trey Callaway
DIR: Chris Long





Blurb: Get the hell out of Hell House! Sam and Dean defy a homicidal spirit, but their efforts are encumbered by a pair of goofball paranormal investigators who hope ghostbusting gets them girls.

My Blurb: So before we even begin, I’ve finally stopped fighting with my DVD player's refusal to cooperate -- so I’m really frickin’ annoyed at the number of DVDs I have with no player. But I’ve joined the 2000’s, by joining frickin’ Netflicks, so I should start more regularly reviewing - maybe kinda sorta.

I’m just gonna presume that since I just signed onto Netflix, you’re all at the cooler, newer site and I’m ten years out of date, as per usual. I care not… about that part… I’m glaring daggers that I have to sign onto a service at all, though.

But more relevantly, this isn’t one of my favorite episodes. It’s not horrible - ahem, ‘Bugs’ - but I may be slightly more pricky than usual.
It is meh. A lot of meh.Collapse )
