Community for the purpose of asking and answering questions about the canon of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel television series. The general idea is that it's for fanfiction writers to pool their knowledge of show history vs. fannish inventions, but all are welcome to ask or contribute. Both programs are the intellectual property of Joss Whedon, Mutant Enemy Productions, and related companies; this community is merely a fan discussion forum.
Since the concept is to ask and answer questions about what happened on the shows, fans may risk seeing spoilers for episodes that haven't been shown in their area yet. While we encourage users to be considerate about spoilers -- especially for episodes that are only a few weeks old, and definitely for *unaired* episodes -- do consider the nature of the community. I.e., read at your own risk. If you're asking/answering a question that you think might be spoilery, please err on the side of caution and use a cut tag; if you don't know how to do so, feel free to ask the community maintainer (mpoetess), or another member, for help.
Since the concept is/was designed to help fanfiction writers with background questions, discussion of plausible storylines may include adult situations, slash (homo-erotic/romantic storylines) and other subjects that some people might not prefer to discuss or read. That's fine -- you're not forced to read if you don't wish to, you're not forced to respond if you don't wish to. Please act like adults. If you're not an adult, please be aware that this stuff may be here, and consider whether it's something whoever's responsible for you would want you reading. If you're responsible for non-adults... You get the idea. You are your child's babysitter, not the internet community as a whole.
