There have been many great "canon" stories I've liked, but technically they're not canon (and can muddy concepts as what a soul and vampire is even more). I'd like to know more of the lore of the world so those veer to other characters are also welcome to me.
The Buffy creators have never been big on canon. There's a series premise, then a seasonal premise, but beyond those, they are making it up as they go along. How many times has Willow or Tara spoke of magic having fundamental rules that never get spoken of again? Just write a good story.
