A 'grizzled' reporter indicates just how much the world has changed with his first question at Jasmine's press conference, which had to be cut.
"Yeah, I got a question all right... One I think the world demands an answer to. Exactly how do you get your hair so shiny and bouncy like that? What is that, like a special conditioner or..."
PS. I forgot to publish last week's script-post, I just saved it as a draft. Here's the link.

The script translates Wo-Pang's ritual to take Angel's soul as follows:
I call upon the Five Powers... Kun, Zhen, Xun, Kan, Li... Grant me access to the being. The fire within. that it may be brought without. I call to the One who has awakened. His will be done...
The spell in non-English.

He also sent me a sketch of Angel (by misstake, he meant to send it to someone else, but I got to keep it), seen below (my scanner sucks, the sketch if actually darker and has blue outlines).
To se a bigger version of the sketch click here.
More info on the sold out sketchbook(but nag him and he might do a second printing).

Lilah enjoys the potential for irony in her conversation with Wes.
"Cheer up. Angel find the kid with blood on his hands, he might just prove you right about that propechy: 'The father will kill the son.' OOO! Maybe he'll slit his throat."
This excerpt might have been intended for this or this conversation.

I mainly pray to the demi-God Hot Platina, but I worship more entities from the Goddom of Buffy & Angel, for example The Chosen One and The Broody One. But I also recognize the awesomeness of the other Jossverses and their demi-Gods.
Some verses I have more fate in than others, for example I hold the Firefly-verse above the Dollhouse-verse.
It's a very individual religion, you can choose what or who to worship without the other Jossverses wanting to stake you (that would be "crucify" for Christians). Normally. Some fanatics (a.k.a. fanboys and fangirls) could overreact in case you don't worship "correctly".
Even tough this is a relatively individual religion, there's a few commendments, do's and don'ts. Here are a few:
* Do not call Season 8 "Just a comic", even tough Joss Whedon has confirmed it to be canon. Unless he un-canonize the comic, IT'S CANON. Period. You may argue that it's not as canon as the TV-show, but It. Is. Canon.
* Do not claim that Spuffy is better than Bangel, or vice versa. You may have a preference, and appreaciate different aspects of one relationship while dislikeing the other relationship, but unless you wish to start a holy war, do not say that one shipping 'rules' while the other one 'sucks'. There will be blood.
* No character is perfect.
* No writer is perfect.
*There is never only ONE absolute true interpretation of anything that happens on the show (sometimes even God's interpretation can be disgareed with). Holding your interpretation above other worshippers and calling the people who disagree with you non-believers or 'fanboys' och 'fangirls' when your patience leaves you is a death sin (lucky for us tough, in this religion we believe in resurrection, returning from the dead, so committing death sins? Not that big a deal.).

"Watch who you bully, kid. She might be the next chosen one."

The gang realizes early on something that will come to present a problem before - and long after - Angel's child is born.
WESLEY: His child. Even if it's the Tro-Clon come to destroy us...
FRED: It's his child.

The Ramsey hotel was originally called the Tamarind in the script.
This was deleted from the script, because of length:
Hank: Can't we at least take off the tape? It's more fun when they scream.
Barney: You heartless bastard. There are people trying to sleep in this hotel.
I assume this was when Cordelia had been kidnapped to later be sold at the auction.

But this one is actually fleshed out, compared to other top vampires lists I've seen online. Not only "drool, vampires are cool"(even tough there is some of that too).

In this line cut for length, Buffy explains what kind of force she plans to use to get into the Initiative to rescue Riley:
"Explosives, tear gas, grappling hooks."
I'm guessing it was cut from this dialouge:

Cut from the script for length was this exchange, continuing the Cordy/Wesley bickering that runs throughout. As they're heading back into the warehouse after having come up with the horsehair solution to the cuffs:
WESLEY: All I'm saying is you might have thought of the horsehair sooner, not that being flung repeatedly across a room isn't jolly good exercise.
CORDELIA: Speaking of horsehair, where did you find that jacket?
GUARD: Mr. and Mrs Winslow, good to see you again.
WESLEY: Don't touch me.
GUARD: Remind me never to get married.
In case you don't remember, Cordelia and Wesley pretended to be Mr. and Mrs Winslow to get into the warehouse in a earlier scene.
I really wish they had kept this, I can hear Wesley's voice so cleary when reading the first line, and imagine Cordelia's fashionita/bitch retort.

Tara shifts on the table, like she's about to stand up.
WILLOW: Wait! Don't! Don't leave-
TARA: I'm not. I was just - my skirt was bunching up.
* * * *
TARA: You just have to stop. You can't use magic again. Not ever.
WILLOW(confused): Black magic. Of course. But Giles says it isn't as simple as quitting it all cold turkey. He says I have to learn to use my power for good. The magic is in me now, and if I try to repress it, it's going to end up coming out again - in a bad way.
TARA(shakes her head): It's too dangerous. You can't take the chance that you'll lose control.
WILLOW: I don't want to. I can't. But the stuff Giles and the coven taught me in England - it helped. And, you know, all I have to do is think of the look on Dawnie's face - when I tried to... When I said such awful things to her. I never want to see that look again. I never want to cause that kind of pain.
* * * *
I wish Amber Benson had agreed to do this(I read in a interview that she didn't want to do that to the fans, but I'm too lazy to find a good source for that). And at the same time not. I might have thrown something on the TV if I saw The First mocking Willow in Tara's shape. But at the same time, we see more of Willow's regret in the original script.

*Sarah Michelle Gellar was away for a great deal of time when the end of season five was shot. She was filming Scooby Doo in Australia, which is why the episode 5.21 The Weight Of The World features very little of her. Doug Petrie told the BBC Buffy website about how they thought of a way to overcome the problem:
“We knew for some weeks in advance what her schedule would be like and we were all very interested in accommodating that schedule. But we had the second-to-last episode of the season and no Buffy. What do you do? Joss and I were both big fans of the Dr Strange comics. Dr Strange was a mystic magician who lived in Greenwich Village, New York and could leave his body. His astral self would go off on these adventures.”
*The telepathic voice of Buffy in 7.11 Showtime was not the voice of Sarah Michelle Gellar in the original airing of the episode. She was unavailable to record her voice for the U.S. version, but it was her voice when this episode aired in the UK and Australia.
[Anyone from the US who noticed the difference? I assume it's her voice on the DVD.]
*5.22 The Gift was the last original Buffy episode to air on the WB, and it was promoted as the “series finale” and not the “season finale”. The final two seasons of Buffy aired on UPN.
[This I think was rather mean, to the audience-members who didn't know about the UPN move.]
*The translation of Willow’s Turkish spell to get the Bringer to talk in 7.20 Touched is, (according to the script):
“You are getting very sleepy. Very, very sleepy. I do not have a pocket watch but then again you do not have eyes.”
The actual translation is: “Eyeless man, speak to us. The man without eyes, speak to us.”
[Willow should have said that sleepy-line in English after saying the Turkish spell. Would have been so funny. Warmoon(a member of the trivia site) said on the trivia site "turkish is my native language so here is the original spell 'konuş bizimle gözleri olmayan adam' as english its 'speak to us the man who doesn’t have eyes'" Of course, that doesn't sound as "English".]

The following exchange was cute due to length:
WILLOW(encouraging): I bet you will.
BUFFY: No. No bet. I will make it work.
[This came out a tad more strident than she planned.]
No clue which scene it's from, I don't know the episode very well. Maybe she was talking about how she would make her and Riley's relationship work?
I'm glad everyone has been enjoying our artwork. The question most put to me is: Do you have any Buffy or Angel stuff? I've created a poll on our Ebay Store homepage so everyone can vote. The poll will stay up for one week and then the winning selection will have another poll to focus the theme of the new piece. We will continue adding one poll each week. If you have any questions, feel free to drop me a line.

I realize my little list is nothing compared to the other serious blogging going on on this blog, but what the hell, it's well over midnight and I don't want to go asleep since that means I have to wake up tomorrow to do the homework I should have done today(not that staying up later will help, but let's ignore that fact).
So here is my list;
10 reasons we shouldn't keep saying "Joss, kill Kennedy. Kill her NOW!"
10. She's hot.
9. Wanting someone to die is wrong. Bad fans.
8. She's a hot lesbian.
7. I like her wardrobe.
6. She makes Willow happy.
5. She's a good fighter. She has to be. Can you imagine how many people/demons who must have tried to kill her for her personality's sake? Yet she's still standing.
4. She's funny. Okay, her jealousy and general crappy attitude gets annoying, but she is from time to time very amusing with her personality disability(I'm not sure if that's a actual term, but I think it's quite fitting when talking about Kennedy).
3. I want her to become more likeable/admirable before she dies. Otherwise we'll always remember her as "that lame character who was only there to bitch and be Willow's rebound-girlfriend. Not even a real character, just a tooth ache and pain killer all wrapped up into one, impossible as it may seem"(okay, I realize not everyone who reads this is anti-Kennedy, but you can partly agree that she needs to develop as a character more, yeah?)
2. Sometimes you need someone who questions you. Because let's face it, Buffy's great, fantastic, a "hell of a woman" as Riley and Spike said, but she's not perfect and it's good for her, and other people Kennedy questions, to re-think their plans. And I think it's motivating for Buffy too. I bet she loves proving Kennedy wrong.
1. The nr one reason not to have Kennedy killed;
Who else will be bitch about? Rona? Amy? Warren? You often don't know a good thing before it's gone, so keep on hating that brat, because you know that it's likely that Joss will one day be able to make us like her, and then soon kill her.
Not bad for something written at 1 am, huh?

According to whedonesque Emma has tweeted that "Yes CP will be motion animation in a few months. The web comic is only phase one people".
She seems to still be adding pages to it, so come back for more.
I can't decide wheter I like the comic or not. It's something else. Don't think I like the character Contrapussy tough. Bad puns and she seems to be a bitch(look who's using bad puns now).
But then again, I usually roll my eyes at Cordelia's snobby behaviour and Buffy's puns, so maybe I'll continue to read.

Cordelia deals with her fears on her own when no one can hear her.
"The last time I was this scared - I guess I was around eight or nine - and the clown just thought he was doing his job, but the way he twisted those balloon animals... For years I had nightmares that he'd come into my house and twist off my-"

The following exchange was cut after Lorne suggested that maybe they should be wearing lead when using Fred's radioactivity device.
CORDELIA: Good point. Fred, how worried should we be about contamination?
FRED: I wouldn't be. I mean, not now. Not after we've been sucking this stuff up all day.

Gunn and Angel have a brief exchange regarding tracking Darla.
ANGEL: She went this way.
GUNN: You can smell her?
ANGEL: Tire tracks.
GUNN: Right. I saw those.
I love the scenes where Gunn "get's a little lost". Like this scene, with the xenophobia bit.

After Wesley compares Angel's uniqueness to the rare volumes in the bookseller's shop(read dialogue here), not only does Lionel announce that he has three copies of the book Wesley requested, but he goes even further to unintentionally cut down Angel by admitting:
"Cover's coming off this one. I'll give you twenty percent off and a free bookmark."

I buy books I'm not likely to read, cards, tote bags, posters, action figures.
But I don't think I'll be buying this.
A 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer female figure horror Model Kit'.
I just wonder, other than her name on the headstone and a cross, where's Buffy?
She's hot, but the likeness is not there. Also, that you have to assemble and paint it yourself is a dealbreaker for me. I have no skill.
So why do I post the auction here?
I guess I need a excuse to look at hot figurines.

Dawn shares Willow's feelings on the delay in getting a response from the chemical testing of the Doublemeat burger.
"So much suspense. It's like taking a pregnancy test... when they do that in pregnancy test commercials."
That might have been my favorite Dawn quote if it had been aired.

"Passion, it is born, and though uninvited, unwelcome, unwanted like a cancer, it takes root. It festers. It bleeds. It scabs only to rupture, and bleed anew. It grows, it thrives until it consumes. It lives so, it must die in time. Passion, it drives some to distraction, some to despair, some to vengeance. It drives some to murder and others to madness. Passion is the source of hope and the cause of despair. It is the source of life and the cause of death."
Here's the aired version:
"Passion. It lies in all of us. Sleeping... ...waiting... And though unwanted... ...unbidden... it will stir...open its jaws, and howl. It speaks to us... guides us... Passion rules us all. And we obey. What other choice do we have?
Passion is the source of our finest moments. The joy of love... the clarity of hatred... and the ecstasy of grief.
It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion, maybe we'd know some kind of peace. But we would be hollow. Empty rooms, shuttered and dank... Without passion, we'd be truly dead."
I don't know about you, but I think the original version represents Angelus more. His hatred for emotions/passion can be cleary seen in the original, while in the aired version, he's just a story teller.
I understand that the voice over for the episode could have been read by any character, since it's more a lesson about passion, not a character's point of view of passion. Don't get me wrong, I don't think Angelus disagree with everything in the speech, but since it was read by Angelus, I wanted it to be more like the original version. Because I don't think he would have called "the joy of love" one of his/ours "finest moments".

It about characters who say what the audience thinks, like several Whedon-characters do.
It's nice with TV/movie/book writers that don't take themselves too seriously and let characters make fun of situations and other characters.

Great price. But this now means that I'm even more broke than before(I bought it with credit card) so no more ebay for me until November. Maybe a couple of Buffy/Angel comics, but otherwise, nope. I need to save up for a Spike Premium Format Statue Exclusive anyway.

The Chosen Collection 49.99USD
Buffy Once More With Feeling tiki for 89.99USD

It's two comic pages by Franco Urru, from Angel After the fall(issue 17, page 5) and Spike After the fall(issue 3, page 19). Although technically the AATF art if just one panel from page 5(Urru didn't draw the entire page on the same paper/board-thing)

The last page was beautiful, both artwise and character-wise. I read the last lines as Jacob, as he said, daring to want more, to finally get Alex, to dare to feel.
Vampires aren't just monsters. They're part human too, and a few of them might even be decent people(if they have access to willing-to-be-feed-on people).
That's one of the things I love about Buffy. It's not always white and black.
That said, I think Jacob needs to be slayed.
