We Fans Are Like That

This is a collection of Buffy-based folklore. It was written by Buffistas, habitueés of the Buffy and Angel threads at The Phoenix message boards. Also known as filk, this mutant strain of writing creates parodies of the two shows by mixing them with other well-known fictions.

The Buffistas hold nothing sacred, and have torn through many a genre, leaving cubicle mayhem in their wake. The filk list is below.

The world asks many questions of us, such as "What the hell does 'foamy' mean?" and "You are a cult, aren't you?". The answers to such questions may be found in our FAQ, and an assortment of Buffista recommended links is here.

Please note that we mean no harm or copyright infringement. We garner no profit from writing filk, and sometimes are sad about it.

We've added an Author Index.
