To continue the discussion TV Knight and myself were having in the rewatch thread what do we think of Buffy/Angel fanfiction? It is almost certainly the most popular show ever in that regard.
I used to read it in reams but don't any more. I think the appeal was that it was so unlimited, we could see what we always wanted to see. Bangelers and Spangelers etc could always get the results they wanted and we could bring characters back from the dead, have crossovers from other shows that could never happen in real life (Xena discovers she's not actually Ares' daughter but her powers come from her being a Slayer)etc. You could have whatever you wanted, the Scoobies appearing on the Jerry Springer Show, Willow having sex with the Cheeseman from Restless, Buffy being killed in Sunnydale only to wake up sane in the asylum from Normal Again. And it can fill in the blanks, what really happened between Buffy and Angel when they meet up in season 6? What happens between Tara and Willow when the candle goes out in New Moon Rising? What is that intimate moment between Angel and himself that Spike refers to?
Keeping Me Here-Phantom Dennis telling us why he stays on earth due to his love of Cordy. Real tearjerker!
"Thanks for lending me your body B/Thanks for taking care of my body Faith" a couple of adult fics set during the ep 'Who are you?'. In the first we see Faith in Buffy's body seducing the entire cast, even Adam. In the second we see Buffy having her own sexual adventures in Faith's body before they kiss and make up.
