I can't believe that Buffy premiered on this date 20 years ago.

Granted, I didn't start watching for another five years, but I still feel obligated to celebrate this anniversary. After all, the show brought me to the fandom, and I can't imagine what my life would be like without this fandom. I started writing fanfiction for this show, which lead me to Yahoo Groups and then LiveJournal, where I became fast friends with my fellow BtVS writers and readers. Today, most of my RL friendships exist because of BtVS.

My life would be very different if Buffy the Vampire Slayer had never aired on television. Much more boring, I'm sure. Especially since I wouldn't know any of you. ::hugs::

I can't believe it myself. I've made a lot of friends via BtVS fandom including you.

Hard to believe that a show I didn't expect to like, and resisted watching for 5 years, had such a strong impact on my life. One of those times I was very happy to be wrong about something.

I started watching in 1998. My first episode was Season 2's "What's My Line Part 1."

I love that we've met in RL.

I don't remember what my first episode was, I just know it was in season 5 because I was curious about there suddenly being a sister and the mom dying (from what I'd seen on commercials).

I love that we've met in RL too! ::squishes::

Guess what? A bunch of the old BtVS crew is forming a reunion group over on Facebook and we wanted you to know! It's called "Friends Reunion 2017" and there are a bunch of us ready to relive our Glory/Ben days.

Thank you for the invite! I'm probably going to pass for now as I barely knew most of those people, if at all. Say hi from me though.
