    Wow, I totally forgot to do this when I first joined, like, 15 days ago, oops :)

    So, hi, I'm (sorta) new to the board. Not the fandom, though. I started watching Buffy when it first came out in 97 (I was eight) and have been a fan ever since. I've been writing fanfic for Buffy for almost 10 years now, so there are other types of 'forums' that I've been used to hanging around in.

    15 days is a long time, so I've already forgotten how I found this place. Suffice it to say, I was prob googling something and came across a random thread. When I was done reading through it, I decided to check and see what other kinds of interesting conversations went on in this madhouse :)

    Some quick info: I've re-watched the show so many times that I rarely watch it now, cause I just know it by heart. I also tend to return to single episodes, or multi-episode arcs, instead of going from A to Z, like I used to.

    Spike is my favorite Buffy character, Wesley my favorite Angel character, and I'm a Spuffy shipper at heart.

    I love to make banner art, some of you will already know this, and chances are that my own profile pic and signature was made by moi.

    So there you go, just a small introduction, waaay overdue :D

    PS. I'm already having so much fun on this board and have probably logged on every day since I joined :p

    I started watching Buffy as a fan (other than catching snippets of it without understanding what I was watching) in the mid-2000s. The last 2 seasons (especially season 7) alienated me so that I didn't get Angel (when I chanced upon the show on TV I'd give it a chance, but without context I wasn't able to make sense out of what I was seeing). I can't recall now if it was 2011 or 2012 when I finally got Angel the Series...possibly 5 years ago.

    Anyway, welcome to the boards. :)

    Welcome to the boards! I can see you are diligently reading a lot of the past threads because I will sometimes get a "like" from you for something I posted months ago, so I know you are one of the serious members here. I am on this board every day for several hours, so I expect us to be reading the same things every day.

    @Puppet you already have over 250 posts so you certainly don't feel new. You're becoming obsessed even faster than I did. I'm impressed;)

    Yeah @Puppet you are hardly a rookie. I'm pretty sure I've already disagreed with you around here somewhere :D.

    My favorite character in Angel is Wesley too! Well besides Angel anyway.

    I started watching Buffy when it was in Season 3, I was a freshman in high school. I some how watched the other two Seasons over that summer I can't remember how but I think my friend had the box sets.

    I started watching Angel while it was on-air during S5. Smile Time got me hooked. :D Bought the series after it was cancelled.

    With Buffy, it was in 2015 and I was watching reruns. By December I owned the series.

    Puppet: Ah, hope you liked them. Now all you need are the longer stories ;)

    Hi Puppet,
    it's good to have you here ! Maybe you have already noticed, that I share your love for Spike and Spuffy but hey, i am also a huge Wesley Fan !

    Be careful of this Board, it is addictive.

    I first started watching buffy in March/April this year, so I guess I am a newbie. I don't know, how I managed to not notice it before, but better late than never. I am going to start watching Angel soon.

    Hi. I thought you'd been here forever?
    I started watching Buffy when it first aired in the U.K. (98?).
