Weekly feature: Excerpt from original script

From Tough Love (Tara goes crazy, and Willow goes dark).

"Willow defends her use of magick with help from The wizard of Oz in a line due to length:
'But it's good-witch, not bad-witch power. You know, Glenda-in-a-bubble, not Margaret-Hamilton-on-a-bicycle power.'"

I suppose this line was suppose to be from Willow & Tara's argument.

Weekly feature: Excerpt from original script

From Checkpoint (The Council visits, acting bitchy, tests Buffy, etcetc).

I'm giving you two excerpts this week, since I'm not sure which one I've used before.

"Willow has some rhyming fun when recapping events from the previous episode in a line cut due to length:
'I didn't create the troll. I didn't date the troll. In fact I hate the troll. I helped deflate the troll.'"

"Anya's false history to the Council went on a little longer in the script:
'And when I was seven, I had a pet dachsund that died from choking on a wiener, which I find ironic.'"

Wall mounted Tower Leaping Gift Buffy


Another awesome Willowarlock custom. This one is a bit different, since it's going to be attached to a wall when displayed, instead of standing on it's own on a flat surface.
Click here for more pictures of the custom.

Weekly feature: Exerpt from original script

From Triangle (Buffy's all sad Riley left, and there's a big troll. And Anya & Willow work things out).

"'Um... Giles? Could you maybe make an angry face? 'Cause the smile is kind of scaring me.'

In an early draft of the script, Willow cowers as Giles returns from England early and surveys the damage to The Magic Box."

Weekly feature: Excerpt from original script

From Buffy vs Dracula.

"In an early version of the script, Buffy's 'defeat' of Dracula is less comic and more nonexistent. In the script his exit comes after she arms herself with a lit torch taken off Drac's wall whjen Giles and Riley burst into the room:
The arrival of her entourage is the final draw for Dracula. He fixes Buffy with a final look, full of both pain and fury.
DRACULA: 'What a shame. You could have been great, you know.'
With that, he flings himself out the massive window, shattering it.
EXT. DRACULA'S CASTLE-NIGHT.
Dracula, having changed into a wolf, comes flying out the window. He hits the ground and lopes into the dark woods."

The aired version: Click

Trailers

If you have not seen this guy/girl's Buffy & Angel trailers, you need to. He/She has made vids for several season, and they're epic, in the true sense of the word.

Here's the one he/she made for the first season of Buffy.
