    Default Livejournal: Buffyverse Top 5

    What is buffyversetop5?

    1) It is a seasonal community for posting recs to fan-created works.

    2) Top 5 is meant to thank creators for the work they've shared, introduce newcomers (and longtimers!) to work they may have missed, celebrate another year of enjoying the fandom, and serve as a rec archive that can be searched throughout the year.

    3) Top 5 is open over Halloween each year, when recs are welcome in all Whedonverse fandoms.

    Check out the top five fics posted in this LJ community this year and also the previous years!

    I still have a bunch of classic vid recs that I didn't get around to posting before the deadline last time, but the question is if I'll manage to post anything this time...

    Rec posts have been trickling in not only on LiveJournal, but also on buffyversetop5.dreamwidth.org and buffyversetop5.tumblr.com. If you want an overview of who's reccing what everywhere, try sunnydaleherald.tumblr.com or one of the other Herald pages under [Recs] or (if there isn't a Recs section) [Fandom Discussions]. For me, Top 5 is definitely THE place to be right now! Today and tomorrow, we rec things made in 2018!

    No, there's a real mix of different ships and non-ship fics

    There has been very little Spuffy so far but today I posted a rec list for recent Spuffy fics. Apart from that it's everything. It's also not only fanfiction. There are recs for videos, fanart and so on.

    Is there any sort of BTVS community there anymore? Most of my btvs friends drifted away but if there is an active group I would love to go back. I still have my acct, I think.
    Can we agree that the writers made everyone do and say everything with a thought to getting good ratings and being renewed. This includes everything we love as well as everything we hate.

    On lj specifically? I don’t think so. I get the impression lj is mostly dead. Some people have moved to Dreamwidth but I don’t know about any communities. I only know the events like seasonal Spuffy, IWRY marathon, summer of Giles and so on. There isn’t a lot of activity though.

    I sometimes hear people mentioning discord. It seems this is the new place to discuss things but I have never been there and don’t know if the Buffyverse fandom is represented there at all.
