There’s No Place Like Plrtz Glrb


Welcome to a hot off the presses edition of the Buffy Boards Newsletter! Holidays and New Years have come and gone and it’s time to catch up with what’s been going on and what is coming! But first…

Potentials look here!




New to BB - these are the places to go! Check In; is where you introduce yourself (now don't be shy, we know you want to and we want to know!), Bad Eggs; is where you find guidance ... we all need a little help from time to time, so who best to help you than your very own personal guide to BB? Last but not least Angel Investigations - is where we help the helpless! If you still find yourself with unanswered questions after reading through the FAQ, then this is your next stop. Have a browse through the forum and see if other people have already asked your question and find your answer and if you still need to know something then start a thread in Angel Investigations and we will answer it ASAP.


Please also remember that we have a Confidential Member Concerns Area that you can post in if you would like to keep your enquiry private. Only you and the Board Staff will be able to view it.


Please be sure to read the FAQ before you post. Help | Buffy-Boards


The House Always Wins



Reunion

During the first week of March we had a Buffy-Boards reunion! It was great fun, some games and drabbles and of course reuniting with a whole bunch of old, dear faces… so to speak. Not calling you guys old. Not at all… *coughs* Moving on! Thanks to everyone who participated in making it a great week, and gracing us with your presence again. You have been and will continue to be sorely missed!

Here are some highlight greetings from the week!




*including Professor Walsh who recently underwent a name change, some of you may know her secret identity as miromurr! She now runs The Initative as a special ops program for the Black Thorn, so if you get numbered and you wake up in a cell… don’t worry, we’ll treat you mercifully!


Scooby Spotlight

We want to get to know you! Take your turn on the hot seat by signing up here, or via PM to me or Buffy Summers! Tremble before the razor sharp questions, enough shenanigans, is it… COKE or PEPSI!?

Member's Corner:

Quote of the month
Monkey Pants in "Do you feel sorry for Dru because she lost Spike to the Slayer"
Do you feel sorry for Dru because she lost Spike to "The Slayer"?

I feel very sorry for Dru. She has the most tragic story out of the four vamps, and yet even though Angelus was obsessed with her, both him and Darla were annoyed by her and didn't care much about her. Spike was the only one who loved her, and then he chose someone else, and was going to kill her. She's also the only one who never had a shot at redemption, but who deserved it the most.
Threads
"Shiny Happy Angel"
why didn't Angel lose his soul when he went all shiny and happy under Jasmine's influence?

Aww, haha, @Taake, you sound like my ex mother-in-law! I love dem Swedes.

That is a weird sentence, and you are obviously much younger and very much more beautiful. :D
