Spoilers for both Harry Potter and Buffy the Vampire Slayer under the cut.

In short, I love both series, even if they have various flaws, and even if there are some things I think one series did a little better. But as similar as they are, they are, in the end, quite different - and I don't think it's fair to criticize one against the other.

A few years ago, there was a 20 Facts fest for Harry Potter, where you made up 20 facts about a character. I'm doing something similar for Buffy, except it's five facts about Willow Rosenberg. Long story short, I was unable to do all twenty, but might do four other characters later today or tomorrow.

Is there a trope name and/or an offiicial name for shows where the action/drama is constantly ongoing, nothing is really resolved, and even if there are Monster of the Week-esque episodes it's still generally tied inito something bigger? I found "Kudzu Plot", but that doesn't seem to be exactly what I mean.

Let me explain.

Inspired by Mad Rock: What if you mixed and mashed fandom quotes?

Here is my Star Wars one.

As always, to make it work some quotes will be truncated and/or taken out of context. It's all in fun, people. :) I've also given some context, even for ones that may be more obvious to some fans since we all have different levels of obsession. (However, this won't make sense unless you've seen/read both Buffy and Harry Potter.)

That's about all I have time/energy for! This took two days. But I will post more of these.

I'm taking part in [ profile] icmezzo's Fandom Throwback Thursdays, and thought I'd post some old forum/LJ posts. Expect spoilers.

With commentary, because why not?

Harry Potter )

Buffy: Magazine Style )

Heroes: Season One Finale Reaction Post )

I may or may not post more later.

So, I have a Harry Potter confession to make - besides the fact that I'm still into the books and sometimes read/write fanfic. :P I don't know, once I like something it either goes away quickly or sticks forever. There doesn't seem to be much in between for whatever reason. There's still a part of me that loves books I read or shows I watched as a kid. Fortunately including adult ones, like Keeping Up Appearances.

More on still being a fan, but with different interests )

It's meta time! Although I'm probably completely misusing the term "meta."

Everything fan related under their respective cuts are going to have spoilers. Just saying.
