"Uh... I'm thinking..." -- Beth and Lizbet

"You mean not say things like "I've had people come to my door selling poultry and they sure as hell didn't look like that!" ? I suppose I could stop..." -- Beth

"Dianne Who got mugged on the Metro this morning by Willow (geez, you gotta watch those quiet ones, huh? ;-)" -- Dianne

"The ritual quoting, you mean? It's the .sig jihad, where we attempt to grind one another into embarrassed pulp with deliberate quotation." -- Tina

"Who thought Ampada was the Slayer in her lifetime and that the Inca's *MAJORLY* missed the point of the Chosen One? Maybe that's why the Incas have so many bloodsucking "gods"; they keep sacrificing the Slayers to them rather then handing the girl a sharp stake and telling her to do what comes naturally." -- Lizbet

"Thank you, Abby. Thanks so much. I now have an excuse to kill you if I ever see you again." -- Tina

"The look between Buffy and Angel when Cordy asked him to take her home - LOL! You can just read his mind."
"Given that it was an incoherant mass of "pleaseohpleaseohpleasehelpme" that wasn't hard." -- Maureen and Lizbet

"Although when he didn't show up for a while afterward, I was starting to wonder if maybe Cordy had him chained inside one of her walk-in closets. I mean, wouldn't you? "

"Oh, it was my pleasure, believe me. //honest, sincere smile//"
"You take far too much pleasure in torturing people. Wait, no you don't." -- Perri and Tina

"Oh boy, Angel Angst(tm)! Gotta love it."
"Not only does it make for a good story, but we usually get some drool-worthy moments from it. Well, that is, if you can hear the dialogue over the combined sounds of Leslie, Perri, myself, and many people here (but not Amy) thudding. Or, after we've watched the ep repeatedly, over us repeating dialogue with the characters (what, no, we haven't done that with "Angel," no, why do you ask?)" -- Maureen and Tina

"Yes, with a shirtless Angel, sound goes bye-bye, breathing goes bye-bye, and there's a thud factor. This is *not* to be confused with an ick or an oogy factor. Got it!!" -- Leslie

"Been there, done that, got the crossbow." -- Betsy

"He's a neat character, and although he's still oogy, but he's less oogy, and I'm not just going "ew-ew-ew" (or making random disparaging comments) whenever he's onscreen. I like it when I like all the regulars. This pleases me." -- Amy

"Well, Joyce has caught a clew - this could make mother/daughter interactions for the rest of the series very interesting. 'No slaying until your homework is done!'"
"'But *Mo-mmmmmmmmm!* The Fate of the Universe rests on my shoulders! Like, the world is ending! The Apocalypse is here! Can't Napoleon wait one more day?' 'Just because we're all going to die doesn't mean you can't die properly educated, young lady. Start that history report now!'"-- Maureen and Dianne

"But assuming that Buffy beats the odds, lives through high school, graduates, and goes to college, what the heck is this girl going to major in? Much less have as a money-paying career? Don't just answer that, write me fic!" -- Chris

"Spike woke me up at 1 AM and said, "You're writing this. *NOW*." I don't argue with vampires. " -- Lizbet

"Yup, Undead Q-Tips never die, they just mutate onto other shows..." -- Lizbet

"Um, nice theory, Snyder, but PCP would mess up the way _they_ saw _your_ faces... not the other way around!" -- Chris

"If you see my brain, tell it to please come home. All is forgiven...." -- Dianne

"You have *no* idea how frightening this is to me. Bad enough I get Victoria blathering in my ear on and off, and now I'm channelling Spike? *whimper* After one friggin' episode? *wail*" -- Lizbet

"The same is true for Angel. Nice characterization. However, I refuse to say you nailed Angel. ;-)"

"*Bite me*, .Sig Girl!" -- Dianne

"...then the vamps misread Spike's handwritten orders and instead of attacking Joyce Summers they attack Ojai native and resident Jamie Sommers (Bionic Woman, former tennis pro, former school teacher, now a counselor). Next thing you know, we have a crossover involving special sound effects and slo-mo video. Fanfic, anyone?" -- Betsy

"And where would THAT nasty train of thought take us? Nowhere we want to go. Well, at least, nowhere we want to *stay*. We might visit. That might be interesting." -- Chris

"I love watching Angel and Xander play off each other, it's a hoot, the testosterone levels just rise through the ceiling if they're in each other's company longer than fifteen seconds." -- Chris

"Why are these evil, despicable characters always wanting to talk to *you*, Merclet? *sigh* Did you leave the garage door on your brain open, or what?" -- Chris

"Yes, I feel stupid buying Teen and YM. But I'll live."
"And that's why you spent last night absorbed in every single page of both??"
"We regret to inform you that MB will no longer be posting, as typing becomes difficult when you are both dead and six feet under. Unless, of course, she's a vampire, in which case Buffy will have to stand in line behind me to drive the damn stake." -- Beth and Mary Beth

"Mouth, shut. Mouth shut. I can get this concept. Mouth shut..... *Sigh.* Nope, not gonna happen..." -- Lizbet

"Someday all this drool really is going to short out my keyboard." -- Gina

"I was trying to resist, I really really was but could whomever is not making copies of the movie script that doesn't exist and the hypothetical pilot episode please send any pretend materials to me?" -- hypothetical SunS member

"I was very miserabable. Now I'm...miserabable but dazed." -- Celli

"That's what I love about round robins: license to be mildly sloppy. I would *never* have perpetrated a hokiness like that tears thing in a more serious mode. But with everything else that had already happened, I simply couldn't resist..." -- Valerie

"Dear God, when did I become an adjective?" -- Lizbet

"I don't like sleeping with Guilt. Wild Abandon is a LOT more fun..." -- Lizbet

"Who needs plot? It's Angel without his clothes on!" -- Tina

"Betsy is dancing the dance of joy and relief that she doesn't have to follow *this*! *G*"
"Huzzah! So am... uh... so am, um, that is....Oh. Oh, dear. Oh, dear, oh, dear, oh, dear. I'm up, aren't I? Oh, my. Coooool." -- Betsy and Elaine

"Wouldn't it be much more fun to have a slumber party on the Hellmouth? Ok, hi, I'm so non-self-preservational that it'd just be safer for me to drink Draino and put myself into the hospital than to do some of the stupid stuff I've been known to do." -- Tina

"I have been informed from a rather unexpected direction that I'm taking Never Kill a Boy. Courtesy of Angel, gods help me. Does anyone else think I should take his claim to have "a lot to say" on the subject with a pillar of salt...?" -- Valerie

"I think I'll go home, lie down, and listen to rock music, the music of pissed off." -- Maureen

"This is going to be fun...and may be a lovely angsty way." -- Leslie

"Those DC people are at it again. Maybe they really intend to become the East Coast fan headquarters."

That distinguishes it from before, in which you cannot write a story unless you benefit from a time machine or a mystical occurrence; and from later, in which you cannot write a story unless you wish to torment your fellow listmembers and risk dismemberment. Got the definitions down now?" -- Valerie

"Does Giles have a "Vampires, Demons, and Other things That Go Bump In The Night Phone Directory" for Sunnydale back there?????" -- Dianne

"To understand Excel makes our speaking English good."
"Actually, to try to understand Excel makes my speaking English profane." -- Lizbet and Beth

"I just realized that we have some serious Sarah standing on an apple box for that little conversation & kiss. Which is a good thing, since Angel would look awfully silly with a cross burn somewhere around the base of his sternum. Although I doubt few people here would have objected to the additional unbuttoning that would have been necessary to accomplish that.... I'm actually a little disappointed in them for resorting to having her stand on something, because they can't *help* having it noticed; but the shot was so tight they couldn't really do anything else other than shoot David's chiropractic bills through the roof." -- Valerie

"Or it could have been a figment of my fertile imagination, a land currently densely populated with assorted Slayfolk who are making it damn difficult to stay focused on cleaning my apartment and getting ready to move." -- Valerie

"Gotta channel Cordy once in a while." -- Valerie

"We're scary, we're cool, we generally have way too much cleavage." -- Lizbet

"Well, if you've got an apple box in a skirt, I don't wanna know about it..." -- Celli

"If Angel's going to be this busy, we really must cast guys will look awfully silly kissing & getting carried by thin air..." -- Valerie

"We're SunS. We're random wandering multifandom." -- Valerie

"You don't. You just don't. Majorly don't. Way don't. So don't."
"So, not a little don't, then." -- Valerie and Lizbet

"Can Abby come in and play on the list? Huh, huh, can she? I'll feed her and walk her and, and...."
"Well, as long as you remember to take better care of her than that goldfish last year..." -- Perri and Dianne

"She's happily employed *and* housed... it's... it's... *unnatural*!!! Someone call the Slayerettes... or Mulder... or _someone_!" -- Dianne

"I didn't touch him. I just drooled on him. Come on, Mommy, aren't you supposed to sacrifice for your little ones?"
"I will sacrifice many things for my babies, but Giles ain't one of them! I mean, come on, everyone has to have _limits_!" -- Lizbet and Maureen

"Oh, goody, I'm not after Maureen, The Mad Writer. I just may survive this (said Betsy, self-deludedly)." -- Betsy

"You should have heard the shout I made when I happened to catch sight of the cover from across the room. "Buffy!" I yelled as I snatched it up and mom's eyes rolled ...." -- Mary Beth

"I *am* the Buffy Evangalist."
"Say amen, Sister! *Feel* the power of the Slayers... Enter the Circle of Kayless... Accept your destiny..." -- Perri and Christina

"Lizbet, you have 'til midnight Weds. to do your part of The Fifth Slayerette -- but maybe Dianne will give an extension? Seeing as how you were at ComicCon? No, wait... *frown* hey! You got to see Nick in person! No extensions for you, Merclet!!" -- Christina

"Of course, then SOME PEOPLE (and I'm not naming names, you understand) jump me in hotel rooms and insist that I watch this really, really cool show..." -- Lizbet

"The Cult of Joss: kinda like the Cult of Skinner, only not really." -- Tina

"When you get back I'll be licking the screen."
"Sounds like she's spent too much time with Lizbet..."
"Pffffft. It was the shot of Julian MacMahon coming out of the swimming pool that prompted that remark. The same shot that you, m'dear, BTW, offered your first-born child for."
"Oh yeah. That one. I'd lick the screen too..." -- Celli, Beth, Lizbet, Beth

"Excuse me, I have to go make vowel sounds now... aieo-whoo-boy!" -- Lizbet

"Now remember, I am a person, I have a right to drool over David." -- Celli

"Giles, of course, being the last person I would *expect* to have fall at Angel's feet..." -- Lizbet

"No, no! Go away. Bad fanfic, bad!" -- Celli

"My Muse met Dianne's Muse, and Dianne's Muse sold mine drugs.... Bad Muse! Bad!" -- Christina

"Giggling with both hands over your mouth in front of the computer that is usually processing inspection reports and maps, is considered grounds for being told to 'seek help' in the government sector, you know...." -- Kiki

"Which novel?"
"War and Peace." -- Joss and Alyson

"I wanna be Angel. I could do it." -- Nick

"Do you want some lines in the next episode?" -- Joss to Nick

"Bye, all. Put something cool on my tombstone and tell everyone I said it." -- Tina

"I'm especially tickled by the looks on his face after carrying Willow out, that translate approximately to "If she dies, Buffy is going to take me apart... Oh, boy, she thinks she's talking to her mom... Will somebody take her, please, 'cause she ain't gonna stand by herself for a few minutes... If she dies, Buffy is going to take me apart..." -- Valerie on Angel

"I confess, I want them purely for mad, passionate sex. Is anyone else going to claim differently (and be believed)?"
"I'll give it a go. :-) I'd be very happy for lunch and a good long talk with any of them. Well, skipping the lunch part with Angel. And...okay, maybe I won't be believed on that one...but I *do* want him to talk. He does so little of it..." -- Tina and Valerie

"Dianne (Who notes that the inclusion of Angel in this one was even _more_ gratuitious than the use of Fork-Guy... but, oddly enough, she doesn't see Lizbet complaining about _that_... *vvvbg*)"
"Dee, duh! Angel was in the episode to tell Buffy about the Fork Guy. *shakes head* Gee, that was obvious! :P" -- Dianne and Lizbet

"Oh, you're just too little and *cute* to be evil! Kootchi-kootchi-coo! Gee, do ya think if we keep teasing her, we can actually get Lizbet to explode? It's a fun experiment, anyway! :)" -- Maureen

"Oh, right. Wouldn't want the List Mummy to wig out. After all, she's far more fun when we're in the process of getting her to wig. The stage previous to the wigging needs to last."
"The stage previous to killing, however, doesn't last very long at all..." -- Tina and Lizbet

"I'm claiming equal time with everyone else for Xander, Giles, and Angel. Definitely. Have to. In the interests of fairness...and making sure that they're all properly trained for Willow, Ms. Calendar, and Buffy. Really." -- Tina

"That's guilt by association and it's just not fair! That would be like saying I bounce just because I know Lizbet..." -- deb

"To drool makes our speaking English unnecessary..." -- Lizbet

"I'm willing to concede Angel to Lizbet and Giner if I can have Giles. There's something about a more mature man. In a library. without fangs... (Not, you'll note, that I'd turn Angel down if he were offered to me on a silver platter)(or perhaps in a hayloft). -- deb

"I *am* demure, dammit! I mean, there's a whole group of people here who don't know me and this is my chance...." -- deb

"Yeah... and sweet and vulnerable...."
"Hell, he looks so half-naked in that scene. That's the best thing about it." -- Lizbet, Perri, Tina

"The phones have been extremely *not* ringing today."
"'To read makes our speaking English good.' What can I say, it was a Buffy moment." -- Betsy and Maureen

"Tptb sometimes need a reality check. Of course, I'm saying this about a show where people live until their heads are cut off, but that's not the point, is it?"
"You mean that isn't reality? Sheesh, next thing you know you'll be telling me vampires don't really exist!" -- Tina and Beth

"I wasn't aware Angel's apartment was precisely *safe*. Certainly a good place to be. Definitely fun. Absolutely enviable. But safe? I don't know about that part..."
"Yeah, but the only thing to fear in Angel's apartment is Angel himself. And as the rest of the stuff certainly applies and I *am* a NatPacker... I knew the risks when I went in. *eg*"
"Well, yeah, I'd take the risks if I were you. I'd definitely take the risks. Hell, I'd take the risks if I were me. Mmmm...maybe I'll wait outside the door for you to leave and ambush Angel."
"Oh, dear. Oh, dear. You know, we better never have a War. I think Angel would run screaming into the night and refuse to return... *eg*" -- Tina, Perri, Tina, Lizbet

"Me, I'm resigned to the fact that when I open my mouth, things come out. Unplanned things, but they're there and we have to deal with them." -- Lizbet

"I certainly don't consider it to have happened. I mean--I'm sorry, but I actually grew to *like* Richie. He's just so not dead. Not in the least. He just moved to Sunnydale." -- Tina

"Well, whack Giles upside the head and tell him to stop freaking so he'll talk to me, OK? I think I finally found the point at which his detacted curiousity gives way to panic."
"Your wish is my command. :: THWACK! :: Giles? Giles? Oh dear....Lizbet, see if he's stopped freaking when he regains consciousness..." -- Lizbet and Gina

"Go ahead and put it on the page, Perri. I have escaped unscathed. ;-) Of *course* I'm going to regret that. *blink-blink* Your point?" -- Valerie

"What Perri said--- I love it, but it's not finished and that's cause for dolphining in distress!" -- Chris

"Okay, so, say you haven't seen the movie (all together now, "you haven't..."). (Did I mention I have my own personal e-mail editor over my shoulder? Say hi to MB. *g*)" -- Beth

"We both saw him - zoned in on that boy like a homing device. I think my fingerprints are still on the screen." -- Beth

"I'm reporting you to Maureen. She'll protect me from you evil something-or-others." -- Betsy

"There, there, Val, it'll be all right. We'll make the nasty AOL behave... How 'bout I send Buffy over to stake Steve Case?" -- Perri

"What amuses me is what her reaction is going to be if and when she realizes Mr Salty Goodness (aka Angel) is a vampire." -- Perri

"Don't even ask where Perri and I went on the phone last night. We went scary places. Places that should be unknown to the mass of humanity. And it was *fun*!" -- Lizbet

"Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide; just me and this ghost of an ex-Slayer who wouldn't shut up..." -- Valerie

"Perri, dearest, learning what you mean about Angel being closed-mouthed. Although once I got him to let loose a little on his control, he was wonderful..." -- Lizbet

"Okay, the other brain cell just woke up." -- Betsy

"A plague on *both* your e-mail accounts." -- Perri

"Now see, a Natpacker would stick around and try to reasons with them -- or confuse them into submission. Willow is obviously not a Natpacker, although she does meet other qualifications." -- Perri

"Don't enjoy it too much or much longer, okay? Or I might have to do some serious damage to someone. And since Maureen's the only one handy, she might have something to say about that." -- Betsy

"It's always very amusing... I guess they never really outgrow the Guy Stuff." -- Perri

"Fan is the name, Obsession is the game!"
"Fan is the name, Obsession is the perfume." -- Maureen and Betsy

"I really need to get over to the main list and claim Joss's evil brain as the thing I will Keep..." -- Lizbet

"I keep trying and *trying* to be a nastier person, but it only seems to come out in fanfic." -- Dawn

"Oh, god... Let's not go there.... Actually, let's go there. Often. For a long time....Yeah." -- Perri

"Oh, and guys? Somehow I suspect that Angel might enjoy a midnight swim now and then, were there a handy body of water around...and, well... seeing as vampires don't swim in public, as a rule... and the invention of actual *clothing* to wear while swimming is a rather recent (and somewhat silly, if you think about it) phenomenon..." -- Dianne

"Oh, and just to prove that I am obnoxious, professionally... behold the sig." -- Lizbet

"One of the major disadvatages to lusting after a vampire, is the fact that the opportunities to see them in swim trunks are rare...." -- Perri

"As different as Xander and Giles are, they also have more than a little in common. Not the least, of course, being that they are two defenseless males *always* confronted by the Force of Nature That Is Buffy, in concert with the supposedly deathly shy Willow who can babble a blue streak worthy of any NatPacker when she's not paying attention... and sometimes also have added to that Cordy and Ms. Calendar..." -- Valerie

"And then there's the whole frightening concept of Willow...who feels the strongest need to tell things when she's injured and sleep-deprived and making no sense..." -- Valerie

"But I thought that wasn't allowed..." -- Lizbet and Beth

"Mary Beth (Yes, Beth's roommie) (And proud to admit it) (or was that too stupid not to?) (*g*) (I'm the roomie... gotta love me)" -- Mary Beth

"I used to work somewhere where you'd have to kill people after you told them what you did too." -- Chris

"Actually, Terrorism Studies is down the hall in our suite. Nancy and I work in Conference Management Services. Those terrorism people are scary." -- Beth

"Please note, all, that I-- even at my worst-- never attempted use of "wignacious" as a word!" -- Dianne

"//Ooh, see Dianne wig!// //Now see Lizbet wig!// //Wig, Lizbet, wig!//" -- Betsy

"You know, you start a list for your friends, and then you pay and pay and pay..." -- Lizbet

"Well, seeing as how ListMummy Lizbet was last seen heading off to find someone to suck her blood (and not Angel? Lizbet, I'm amazed!)...." -- Dianne

"Really, I'm not a spy. Just because I don't like having my picture taken and I tell my friends that I'm in the witness protection program and that I use to be a klepto and that... anyways, I'm glad to be here!" -- Nancy

"Well, if she changes the beeper to "vibrate" mode, she could wind up having a very good time... *vveg*" -- Maureen

"That should do it - stick a fork in me, I'm dead!" -- Maureen

"That's not like a RULE rule, that's just a "be nice or we kill you" thing." -- Lizbet

"Dianne dodges the guys in nice white coats who were called in when it was determined that over-exposure to Buffy was causing post-traumatic stress flashbacks to growing up not-in-but-right-next-to The Valley." -- Dianne

"Die. I love you dearly, but die." -- Lizbet
