“When they were saying, ‘Who’s your favorite vampire?’ my favorite before [Fright Night's} Jerry was Spike when he was bad,” Noxon said. “Spike before he got all soft and mushy over Buffy. I still liked him, but I was just trying to get the guy to bite something."

This week's Torchwood was miles better than last week's. Hooray! And Dichen Lachman is incredibly creepy sometimes.

1) The promotion of the Angel and Faith ship. Fangel? Anth? Who knows what to call it. The reason why this will be promoted is two fold - they do have a chemistry together and it will annoy the Bangel shippers. What you haven't noticed the coded "Angel with anyone else but Buffy" fan postings over the last few months?

2) The extreme nervousness regarding Spike in Buffy Season 9. To a large extent the Spike fandom stayed aloof from Seaon 8, mocking and praising it where appropriate. Once Spike returned, things got angsty. How Buffy/Spike will be portrayed in Season 9 will be the major source of contention for the next couple of years.

3) Dark Horse getting better at promoting the Buffyverse. Whilst the "OMG Dark Horse hates us!" reactions were downright daft, some Dark Horse's PR efforts were a bit cackhanded.

4) The growing impact of the social media fandom's take on the two series. If you go any Buffyverse forum these days, it's "oh look it's X who will say Y and Z will disagree". It's a bit predictable. How fans will view the comic books on the social media sites will be more refreshing. Tumblr in particular will be one place to look out for.

5) A growing movement for an end date to the Buffyverse comics. This will come from all sides.

6) More revisionist thinking regarding Season 8.

7) Andrew Chambliss, Rebekah Issacs and Christos Gage wondering what they got themselves into.

Comments at ComicBookMovie.com prove that women have nothing to fear from male fans and are now seen as equals. Hooray!

Everyone else is linking to it, so I might as well.

The Decline of the Online Message Board

That's how I first started, in the rough and tumble of the Buffy Cross and Stake message boards. Blogs, LJ, tweets and tumblrs really don't capture the glorious insanity of a message board in its prime.
