Very quickly

So I'm off work now and that means, no free and unlimited access to the Internet. I've taken refuge in an Internet cafe and I don't know where the time has gone, I really don't..but I've only just finished reading my e-mail and I've just had the warning that I've only five more minutes left...Just as well really as the music coming over the speakers is driving me up the wall.

I mentioned a few weeks ago that my friend J. would soon be going to a BtVS-convention. Well, that convention was this weekend and she's just sent me her report. Main thing is, she had a great time. And she chatted with ASH and JM. And I would repeat everything she told me about it it but a) there's no time and b) have to ask if she's OK with that first!

But apparently, JM does not believe that Spike believed Buffy when she said she loved him, and only said "No, you don't" out of some sort of noble impulse.

Jules' MR con report
Okay, this is the third time I've tried to post - last time I typed in too much.

First of all, thanks, G, for suggesting I post here. Here's a link to my web site, which has a more complete report, plus pictures Julie's MR report (www.geocities.com/bconnmom/MRpics/index.htm). I'm not sure how to load a picture up here - if you can figure it out, G, you are more than welcome to do so. Just give me the photo credit :-) I will continue to add more stuff the next day or so, plus I think I'll start adding my fanfic there as well, and Cass' too.

The man is most definitely hot!! You can tell he's been working out again (he said that he stopped for a while, because he was sick and tired of having to take his shirt off. We all liked it, but I can't blame him for getting tired of being treated like a piece of meat.) He laughed when he said that as soon as he found out that he was done shooting any scenes where he'd have to take off his shirt, he started working out again immediately. *sigh* He has very broad shoulders, considering how short he is - I don't know exactly how short, because I was never standing next to him. The picture was taken sitting down, he was sitting, of course, for the autograph stuff, and standing on stage where I couldn't judge his height. I would think though, that he's a bit taller than me - 5' 8" or 5' 9", I would think. Really, really nice arms, too! He told the funniest story, when someone asked him about his most embarrassing fan encounter. He was at a convention in the UK, and two elderly ladies, maybe 75 or 80, came up to him, and one asked him for a favor. She asked him to "bend over", which he did (he's laughing the whole time he's telling this), and then the other woman grabbed his butt and asked him to "clench", which I guess he did, but he decided that he needed boundaries with fans after that! Man, did we all laugh (and of course, are muttering that those two had all the luck!)

He is so sweet, and totally adorable up close! The picture with him was great, I got to shake his hand three (or maybe four) different times *grin*, he is REALLY cute up close, his hair is growing out and has the dark roots (the hair of redemption lol), he liked the stuffed beanie baby moose I gave him, and he liked the fact that I told him I enjoyed his part in "Winding Roads" (when I said that to him before they took our picture, he turned to me and looked me right in the eyes and said "Well, thank you!" with this intense little tone in his voice *sigh*) I can't wait to see how the picture turns out, although I can't remember if his arm was around me or not, that's how NERVOUS I was. But I didn't babble.

During the Saturday Q & A, when I asked the question about whether Spike thought Buffy really loved him when she said "I love you" to him at the end, James said (and his voice got really quiet before he answered) that no, he didn't think she loved him really, and that he thought that Buffy really loved Angel. But it sounded like Spike was okay with it, because he was doing the noble thing. So there you have it - from his own lips. And remember, no matter what James may think, Joss is the ONLY one who really knows where the truth lies, and he left the ending of BtVS ambiguous as far as the whole S/B/A triangle.

There's more stuff over on my web site, so go take a look if you're so inclined.

G. glad your hand is doing better - enjoy your vacation!

And apparently, if you click on the above link, you get an error message, because it is adding my web site address on top of Gamiila's LJ address. Stupid server *grr* Anyway, here is the link, which you will have to copy and paste in your browser to get to my site:

Enjoy, and sorry for any inconvenience!

Re: Jules' MR con report

Thanks for sharing that report!!

So you're the one who asked the infamous question which has LJ all in a kerfluffle, huh?? ;-) Heehee. And I agree with you, only Joss knows for certain what it's all supposed to mean, and I think he definitely meant to keep it all rather ambiguous.

And mmmmmmmmmm yummy photos on your site!!!!!

Re: Jules' MR con report
Glad you enjoyed my pictures! I will try to get the rest of them uploaded to my site soon. Especially the ones of James, Tony and Amber. All lovely people to talk to - no wonder we like their characters so much.

And OMG! I guess I didn't realize that my question would start such a firestorm. It's the question that Cass, Gamiila and I have been pondering since the finale (well, especially Cass and I, since G still hasn't seen it yet, right, G?)

I am just glad that Spike will come back on AtS, and James said this about it:
He is excited about AtS, because he said there are a LOT of good writers for Spike, and that he thought that AtS was a better fit for Spike, storywise. He said he hopes Angel and Spike don't like each other and have an antagonistic relationship on the show. When someone asked him about Spike becoming human, he was disbelieving and said that was "misinformation" - Spike would hate becoming human! When someone in the audience called out "Shanshu", he started laughing and went into Spike's voice with the "I'm drowning in footware", and had a funny little story about filming that - he did that bit, and they had to shoot it over because Joss started laughing so much about the way James did it, and it was heard on film.

Re: Jules' MR con report

Hee, don't worry about it-- not your fault that everyone is in such a frenzy. A lot of people wanted to know so he would've answered the question eventually. I'm actually glad you asked!

Many thanks for sharing this! I haven't been able to access your web site yet - I'm using the correct address but apparently it has "exceeded its allocated data transfer" - but I'm looking forward to reading more once the site is up again.

BTW, email me at claudia_yvr@livejournal.com if you'd like a code to set up your own LiveJournal account.

I apologize to you, and anyone else who hasn't been able to get through yet - I think it's a function of Geocities. Hey, it's a free site, though :-)

I just e-mailed you, also - I'll take you up on your invitation about the code. Then I shall no longer be "Anonymous" ;-)

Thank you!

No thanks necessary, Julie! BTW, I just managed to access your site and it was well worth the wait. I also just replied to your email and sent you that LJ code, so you'll no longer have to post anonymously :-)
