*Taake walks onto the stage in a Victorian styled dress with a high lace collar*

Good evening everybody and welcome to the 11th annual Buffies Awards Ceremony!

*crowd goes wild*
*stakes and garlic are thrown on stage*

Oi! Watch it with those things! You could take somebody’s eye out!

Now.... how do you like my dress? Doesn’t it just compliment my horns? As you can see by my avatar I decided to wear my true face for the evening…

*indecipherable screams from the crowd*

No, I’m not a vampire! Such a lowly creature as… *mutters* I just borrowed some clothes from Drusilla’s old closet… she keeps the in Black Thorn you know, the best house that ever graced the…

*sees Buffy Summers*

… I mean, not that anyone here is biased. Sineya is super swell and I hear smells like roses!


Anyway, please take your seats, don’t crash the stage, help yourself to the buffet table and please let our army of invisible people, led by Sunnydale’s own Marcie, serve your beverages through the evening.


While everyone settles down, please enjoy this blast from the past Dubba Dubba Dance! Keep an eye out for your BtVS and Ats favorites!



*hurries off stage as garlic is really starting reek a bit*

Clean up! Somebody!

It doesn't look like Mrs Gordo is here this evening, obviously being the most knowledgeable means she's off in the Sunnydale stacks somewhere, so I guess I'll just have to accept this award on her behalf!

**eyes up award lovingly**

In any case the show must go on, so to present the next award please welcome back Taake!

Look, if you don't sign, we'll sue your ass off and kill your children. Just kidding, Donald. Nobody wants a lawsuit.

Oh, right. I’ll have to call you back.

I don't see Last Watcher in the crowd, but luckily he was able to send us a message in advance:

I was lucky enough to win the Class protector award last year, so to win it again is really something special. I was up against some pretty tough competition so I am very proud to get the nod for Most helpful Board member again.
Hopefully I can keep it up & maybe go for three in a row?
So to those of you that nominated & voted me for this award. I thank you & I'm glad I could help!
So to sum up.....Again? Thankyou! Glad I could help! *Bows*
I'll add others as they come in (hopefully)


Thank you Last Watcher, we're glad you're here to help!

Now welcome to the stage @nightshade

THANK YOU, thank you, thank yooouuu!!! This award means so much to me :) Being called an "avid fan" is wonderful to hear. Since it is my favourite Fandom of all time.
This is my first time of the Buffies and I would have never even dreamed about being nominated for anything.
Buffy-Boards is my favourite place on the net, because I can talk about my favourite things with my favourite people, the people who share my love for this incredible and amazing fandom!
I love everything that is related to the Whedonverse in any way! I loved the Buffyverse and things with Buffyverse actors before, but now...
I am so thankful for this boards, it made me even more of a fangirl than I was before, if that was even possible. Before I registered here on BB, I knew about Firefy, Dr.Horrible and Dollhouse, but BB reminded me of it and I watched it. Now I love the whole Whedonverse with all of my heart. I am the most obsessed (and "avid" ;)) Buffy and Whedon fan in my family and of my friends. But being nominated (or winning) an award like this, on a board that is filled with members who are as obssesed with the show as I am, that is incredible and I would have never thought it would be possible. Everyone on BB is an avid fan, someone who loves the fandom and all that comes with it.
What makes us fans?
That we can quote every single word of the show(s)?
Know the episode title by a discription of the clothes a character wore in that episode? (Not kidding, I played that game. A friend had screencaps, tolde me a character and was discribing the clothes. And I named the episodes... But I don't like to brag...



I had like 9/10 correct or something ;) lol. And the one I didn't know was Spike, who only wears different outfits in a few episodes, for example: the hawaiian shirt in doomed or the blue in beneath you and a few more... So when my friend said "Spike: Red shirt, black t-shirt and black leather coat" I had lots of episodes to choose from...)
Does it make us avid fans, that we met actors from the show?
That we use frases from the show in our everyday live?
Thinking about the fandom in any situation possible? Like for example...
That we hear a word and immdiately think of Buffy and a scene that word is used in?
Seeing a brown jacket and thinking: "Browncoat"?
Naming all the episodes of Buffy from Welcome to the Hellmout - Chosen in your head, to relax when you get a vaccination? (I hope that´s the right word... I had to google that.)
Doing presentations about it for school?
Drawing Whedonverse comics for art class in school?
Does it make us a fan that we have no wall space left, because almost every inch is filled up with Buffy posters, pictures, autographs, calenders, figures etc.?
That we walk down the street with a "Jayne hat" and everyone knows we're not affraid of anything?
Having a pinterst account with nothing but Whedonverse related pins?
Having a claddagh ring, wearing it everday and planning on giving one to someone, someday if you find the "right" person?
Doing loads of fan videos and fan art?
Custom making the Sayer Scythe and Faith's knife with your parents?
Listening to the OMWF, Dr.Horrible soundtrack & more when you go to sleep or you are on a very long train ride? (And then never getting the songs out of your head ;) :p)
Not remembering one single day since you know the fandom, that you didn't at least think of it?
Constantly talking to your friends and family about the Buffy/Whedonverse?
Having more books/comics about Buffy than all your other books combined?
Looking at pictures of the cast every single day (digital or actual photos)?
Going online on an absolutely amazing Fan-Forum ;) everyday?
Having a Buffy/Whedonverse collection?
Wanting that collection to grow and not even being close to having enough items in your opinion? And your christmas/birthday etc wishlist consists only of Buffy/Whedonverse merch?
Thinking about the Whedon/Buffyverse every single day?
No. Though all of this is true for me, this doesn't make me a fan. I can be a fan without owning any Buffy merchandise, never having met any of the actors and knowing the show for 1 day. I don't have to think about it every single day to be a passionate fan (though to be honest I do almsot 24/7... okay lets make it 16/7, 'cause I do sleep and go to school... I don't know, but defenitely everyday and a loooot each day.) I am not a fan since over 20 years, but I am a fan... Apparently even a fan that is called an "avid" fan by some other fans (which makes me very, very happy :D). You know what makes me a fan? My love for the fandom. I love it with all of my heart and it is my passion. It is my life and it would still be a huge part of my life, even if I wouldn't think about it every single day. It is such a big part of my life. Not because of all the time I spent "with" it, thinking about it etc... (which is a loooooot) But because of the meaning it has in my life, when I think about it. We are fans, because we live and love the fandom and because it means so much to us. We are the people who keep the fandom alive.

Thank you all so much to everyone who voted for me. This really means a lot to me :D Buffy is my all time favourite show! The Whedonverse is my all time favourite fandom!!! I LOOOOVE IT SO MUCH! And this award means a lot. Thank you all! :)
Whedonverse FOREVER!!!!!!! :D

I ran to my parents immediately when I got nominated for two awards and I was so soo excited and told them all about it,






will do the same now, when I see I won something!
Thank you all :D



Okay that was a little long... Sorry I am really nervouse right now... I am trambeling right now...

Spanky seems to have wondered off, probably hot on the press trail. Or planing a super evil prank. Either way the show must go on!


JUST KIDDING!

Sorry. This might be a trainwreck, was not prepared. I honestly did not expect to win this- was even surprised to be nominated truth be told. I figured so many others were more deserving. I've won a few awards in the past but this is the first meaningful one I've won. And it's really a surprise. There were a lot of other people that were deserving as well. Shit, I think I said that already. Told you I wasn't expecting it.

Anyway, I'll keep my eyes out for news and keep posting so that I can really earn this. Thanks a lot.
