Former lurker/reader, now increasingly active community participant and budding author! Started watching BtVS in 1998 cause of Seth Green and was immediately sucked in, been reading fanfic probably just as long. Came back to the Spuffy fandom after a loooong hiatus and absolutely delighted to find many of my long-ago LJ friends and favorite writers currently active and thriving. BACK IN THE DAY, I ran many a BtVS website— most notably to this community a post-“Chosen” fanfic archive and a couple of rounds of the Watching You Awards (see my avatar for an old button featuring one of the best manips I ever made).

Summary:

We could leave the Christmas lights up 'til January
And this is our place, we make the rules
And there's a dazzling haze, a mysterious way about you dear
Have I known you 20 seconds or 20 years?
Can I go where you go?
Can we always be this close forever and ever?
