You will never see me abandoning LiveJournal.

Let's say I am a new fan of Buffy and I've watched all the seasons on DVD and want to find more online. How accessible is Dreamwidth to new fans like me? Can I search easily for the stuff I like? Are the communities big enough for ongoing discussion? How do I join?

  • Fri, 09:50: What I need is a really good, non-ship specific essay about Season 9 and beyond.

  • Tue, 18:34: RT @quotergal: Do other Whedon-y folks have a favorite @WHEDONesque thread? I'd love to hear. Here's another of mine: http://whedonesque ...
  • Tue, 19:03: No one knows what form the Spikengularity will take in Buffy Season 9 but it is coming and the fandom should prepare.
  • Tue, 19:36: Equating US politicians with Whedonverse characters always ends in disaster for discussion.
  • Tue, 21:46: The Hour is fab. Best thing in the telly at the moment.
  • Wed, 07:34: Re: new Ultimate Spider-Man. Dear Marvel, another alliteration? Marshal Law sent that up something chronic.

What does "interesting ideas afoot" for the Buffyverse actually mean?

1) The Hour - highly addictive BBC drama set in the 1950s. None of that Downton Abbey nonsense for me, oh no.

2) Falling Skies - best scifi show since Threshold. Note to V, Flash Forward & The Event execs, this is how you write decent characters.

3) Torchwood - every series is different. That's the joy of it.

  • Mon, 18:33: That Spike comic book was possibly the sneakiest fan action that Dark Horse could have done. It's what I would do.
  • Mon, 22:43: Hooray! There is an official Whedonverse connection, it can be tweeted about.

  • Tue, 10:03: Falling Skies is turning into a really good show. It's quite the hidden gem.

  • Sun, 14:47: And when I say "suspect" I mean "know rightly".
  • Sun, 19:03: Not utterly convinced of the fandom mantra that it's ok to shout out at people to tell them why they are wrong.
  • Sun, 19:34: I don't think I've ever been so depressed to see the number one worldwide trend on Twitter.
  • Sun, 21:43: There's going to be a new campaign to bring back the death penalty in the UK. Why people want the state to kill its citizens is beyond me.
  • Mon, 08:09: Too often the belief that you have a right to be heard becomes the belief that you have a right to shout at people.

Or is there a distinct lack of buzz about the Torchwood episodes that are airing at the moment? I don't think I've ever seen less online chatter about a Torchwood series. Which is a shame cause the first three episodes are proving to be quite enjoyable.

With all the cynicism these days in the fandom, something like this is great to see.
