hey, 'sup.

Hey! So! Welcome to the community! Your mods are currently [personal profile] amber and [personal profile] jeeps, both long-time Whedon fans who know his shows backwards. I'm really happy to see so many people joining.

Please, introduce yourself — yeah, even you guys with the OpenID accounts! This can be a bit like one of those friending memes, if you want. Just copy and paste the (very basic) code in the box and comment answering the questions!



I'm also working out a layout: who would we like to see in the header? Joss himself? A selection of the sexy young leads from his various shows? Eliza Dushku looking sexy? If no-one answers it will end up being that last one, just so's you know.

We're thinking of having weekly discussion posts for the new Dollhouse eps if you're all down with that, even if it turns out to only be for, sob, another three episodes. Seriously, I cannot believe they're so close to cancelling it. If you're reading this going "ewwww Dollhouse", Tiger Beatdown has a really good post on why it's a fab show.

There might also be a Whedonverse Comment-Fic-Request-Post here at some point once Dreamwidth hits Open Beta. Is there anything else you guys would like to see happening? Or that you'd like to contribute? Obviously we're fine with people posting fic and icons and con news here, though if it gets too prolific we'll start moderating posts and write up a more official set of posting rules. For now, we want to make this a cool place to hang and talk with fellow fans, with minimal friends-list spam.

Oh, and if you haven't already, you might want to add [syndicated profile] whedonesque_feed. It's awesome and it'll keep you up to date with all things Joss. (I'm especially looking forward to the horror movie spoof starring Amber Benson about a killer penis.)

What do we call you? Jeeps!
Where in the world are you? Stanford, CA.
How'd you get into Joss? I started watching Buffy during season two and it was love.
Which Joss shows have you watched? EVERYTHING. Even that one episode of The Office.
Favourite character? Hardest question ever, uh. Cordelia.
Do any fannish stuff? Fic, art, icons? Like my co-mod I write fic ([community profile] jeepers) and have roleplayed a lot, mostly from Buffy.
River versus Buffy versus Echo: who'd win, and why? Buffy. River's, you know, insane in a fight, but Buffy's got the edge over that with resourcefulness and superstrength. And Echo just has no chance against her, with or without an imprint.
outforawalk: Buffy glares, while stopping a sword with her bare hands. She finds her awesome. (btvs_buffyiswhatisleft)

[personal profile] outforawalk 2009-06-02 01:51 am (UTC)(link)
EVERYTHING. Even that one episode of The Office. HA! Did you enjoy his guest stint on Veronica Mars? When I rewatched Veronica Mars earlier this month, I was tickled by his appearance. Even if I kept waiting for something crazy to go on with the character, like he would mention his need to eat kittens or to suck the life force out of little blondes.

oh, i love your username. when i saw it in my inbox i mentally added the 'bitch' even as i thought it might not actually be a buffy reference.

AND YOU HAVE FOUND ME OUT. i haven't seen his vmars cameo yet, though i've seen quite a few other eps of the show. SHAME. i think — i think — i've seen everything he's directed, though.
outforawalk: Mulder gazes and pets, Scully naps. (Default)

[personal profile] outforawalk 2009-06-02 02:06 am (UTC)(link)
The bitch is absolutely the implied end of my user name. I thought it was a great fandom reference that didn't sound so fandomy, if that makes sense. If you get it, you get it. If you don't, you probably think I like to exercise far more than I do!

On VM, Joss is the manager of a rental place. He is somewhat awkward, but I couldn't stop thinking, "JOSS!" every time he was on screen.

I still have to watch Dollhouse, so you are ahead of me!

[personal profile] butterfly 2009-04-21 01:26 pm (UTC)(link)
What do we call you? Generally, just 'butterfly' is good. My RL-roommate calls me butterfly.

Where in the world are you? Oregon, in the United States. It's currently starting to get quite sunny and warm.

How'd you get into Joss? I saw 'The Pack' in the summer between the first and second seasons and have been hooked on Joss ever since.

Which Joss shows have you watched? All of them!

Favourite character? For BtVS, my favorite character for the first five seasons is Xander, but it's Buffy for the last two. For AtS, it was Doyle, then it was no one, as I wept bitterly over Doyle's death, but after time passed, I fell for Wesley. In Firefly it's... (oh, this one's hard)... Zoe, I think. For Doctor Horrible, it is the Doctor himself. In Dollhouse, while I'm very fond of Caroline/Echo and many other characters, I totally fell hard for Victor's real person in Needs. I hope we see that part of him again soon.

Do any fannish stuff? Fic, art, icons? I've done fic and vids. Some icons, but not for years.

River versus Buffy versus Echo: who'd win, and why? Buffy. She's got superpowers, is innately resourceful, plus, did I mention the superpowers? If it was just River vs Echo, then River would win... as long as Simon was in danger. I think Echo would win otherwise.

(of course, if Buffy is involved, the most likely scenario is that she would try to help both River and Echo, because she's awesome like that)

How'd you get into Joss? My friend had tried to get me to watch for years and I couldn’t get into it when I tried catching an episode here and there.. Then when I was unemployed and pregnant with my daughter back in 2002/2003 I got the first season on Buffy on DVD and watched it in like a week and was hooked on all this Joss from then on.
Which Joss shows have you watched? All of them.
Favourite character? That is so not fair…I love so many of them! I’d have to say Spike as my all time favorite though.
Do any fannish stuff? Fic, art, icons? No, not really. I’ve made the occasional icon, but that is it.
River versus Buffy versus Echo: who'd win, and why? I’d say River because she’s so insane and skilled and psychic.

What do we call you? Katy, or Stellar works too.

Where in the world are you? Northern Virginia (US) for the moment.

How'd you get into Joss? I mainlined Buffy & Angel a few years ago, on a rec from a friend!

Which Joss shows have you watched? Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Serenity, Dr. Horrible, a few eps of Dollhouse. My favorites are all of Buffy, and seasons 1 & 5 of Angel. And I like the new comic series for both shows, though I stopped following them a few months ago.

Favourite character? Hard to pick! Probably Spike, though.

Do any fannish stuff? Fic, art, icons? Occasionally! Even more occasionally, these days. I'm not really "in" the fandom, but I like to dabble and read fic!

River versus Buffy versus Echo: who'd win, and why? Buffy, because defeating assassins brainwashed by evil overlords is totally her thing.

Do any fannish stuff? Fic, art, icons?

Couple of ficlets. The Spikefeed, back in the day.

River versus Buffy versus Echo: who'd win, and why?

Can River and Echo gang up on Buffy? Please? (I have very strong S6 issues with B, can you tell?)

Where in the world are you?Washington, US. (state, not DC)
How'd you get into Joss? Watched Firefly and Serenity in like two days in 2005.
Which Joss shows have you watched? Firefly, most of Doctor Horrible (I liked it but Nathan Fillion being obnoxious bothered me, so I didn't watch the last one) and I'm making my way through Buffy. I'm nearly through season three.
Favourite character? Spike or Wash or Zoe or maybe Oz.
Do any fannish stuff? Fic, art, icons? Not really. I've read some Firefly fic and will prolly try to write some Buffy stuff once I've finished watching it.
River versus Buffy versus Echo: who'd win, and why? I think there are circumstances in which Buffy could win, but my money would be on River. For one, she's a lot more likely to have a gun.

Where in the world are you? Richmond, Virginia. For my sins.
How'd you get into Joss? Weirdly enough, my mom picked up the first season on DVD when I was sixteen, and my whole family got hooked on it. (We didn't have cable.)
Which Joss shows have you watched? Buffy, Angel, Firefly (and Serenity), Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, and now Dollhouse
Favourite character? A very, very hard choice, but I'd have to say Wesley, for changes his character went through, which took a long time and were a reasonable reflection of the traumas and triumphs he went through.
Do any fannish stuff? Fic, art, icons? Fic, for years. Buffy was my first serious fandom.
River versus Buffy versus Echo: who'd win, and why? I want to say Buffy, but I think I'd have to go with River. Having the strength to bend iron is one thing, but being able to read your opponent's mind is quite another. Plus River is just so insanely fast.

How'd you get into Joss? An employer had tv lunches. Buffy aired every Wed.

Favourite character? Willow, or Fred, or Spike. Hard to choose.
Do any fannish stuff? Fic, art, icons? Nothing in the Jossverse. More a watcher.
River versus Buffy versus Echo: who'd win, and why? Buffy. She has the better axe, and consistency.

How'd you get into Joss? First of all, I love how that's worded, lol. Second, I was a latecomer to Buffy. Got addicted and one by one, discovered his other shows.
Which Joss shows have you watched? Buffy, Angel, Firefly, Dr Horrible, Dollhouse
Favourite character? Picking only one, I'd have to say Mal. I love nearly all Jossverse characters however.
Do any fannish stuff? Fic, art, icons? Fic, occasionally I'll attempt icons
River versus Buffy versus Echo: who'd win, and why? River. "I can kill you with my brain."

How'd you get into Joss? I saw a few Buffy episodes on occasion while it was airing. My mom was really into the show starting at S4. Then a couple of years ago, I downloaded the series, marathoned, fell in love, and bought the boxset with my mom.
Which Joss shows have you watched? Buffy, Firefly/Serenity, Dr. Horrible, Dollhouse, only a few episodes of Angel before losing interest. And I read the Buffy: Season 8 comics.

Do any fannish stuff? Fic, art, icons? Working on some Dollhouse fic.

Which Joss shows have you watched? Firefly, Dr. Horrible, and Dollhouse
Favourite character? Simon Tam
Do any fannish stuff? Fic, art, icons? Vidding.
River versus Buffy versus Echo: who'd win, and why? River. Inherited Slayer skills have nothing on futuristic government programs, and an Echo without an imprint would be useless in a fight.

Man, you must have the most twisted idea of who Buffy is if you've only seen AtS. :) I mean, I ♥ Buffy, but she's kind of a dick in most of her Angel episodes.
csichick_2: (Default)

[personal profile] csichick_2 2009-05-03 02:48 pm (UTC)(link)
She rubbed me the wrong way when she showed up in season 1. I'm still making my way through season 3 right now.

I started with all of Chris Kane's eps and now I'm watching the rest. What I've seen of season 5 so far confused the hell out of me.

How'd you get into Joss? My bffs and I decided we should watch Buffy because we were big fannish dorks and it seemed like something we should do. Umpteen billion hours of television later, I've watched...
Which Joss shows have you watched? ... all of them, right through, except for the latest episode of Dollhouse.
Favourite character? Cordelia! I didn't even have to think too hard about that one. Faith is a really close second, followed by Zoe and Angel.
Do any fannish stuff? Fic, art, icons? Not in this fandom, although if I wanted a joss icon I'd make one.

How'd you get into Joss? I started watching Buffy when it first aired over here ('97? I think that was it).
Which Joss shows have you watched? Buffy, Angel, Firefly and Serenity, Dr. Horrible. I've yet to sit down and watch any eps of Dollhouse though (it's very slack of me. I am ashamed *hangs head*).
Favourite character? Spike. I'm also quite fond of Tara. Also, Faith.
Do any fannish stuff? Fic, art, icons? No, I'm more of a fic reader than a writer.

How'd you get into Joss? I'd always considered the movie a guilty pleasure, but had no interest in TV Buffy until it was almost all out on DVD. Then my friend and I mainlined it right up until we realized s7 was not quite out yet. Which Joss shows have you watched? BtVS, Firefly, Angel
Favourite character? Buffy, Fred, Oz, Tara, Mal...hmm. I don't think I am good at this "favorite" business.
Do any fannish stuff? Fic, art, icons? I'm a reader, not a writer. But I try to be a faithful commenter. The fic world needs those, right?
River versus Buffy versus Echo: who'd win, and why? I think Echo loses and I am pretty sure the Buffy vs. River looks a lot like Angel vs. Spike. It would depend on the day and how much each one of them wanted to win.

Do any fannish stuff? Fic, art, icons? Fic, but rarely for Buffy
River versus Buffy versus Echo: who'd win, and why? Buffy, I think, because Buffy always comes out on top eventually, no matter how hopeless the situation.
