Angel the Series Newbie Guide

current mood: bouncy

Once upon a time there was a vampire. And he was the meanest vampire in all the land. All the other vampires were afraid of him, he was such a bastard. Then one day he's cursed by gypsies. They restore his human soul. And all of a sudden he's mad with guilt... it's a fairly dull tale. It needs a little sex is my feeling. So, sure enough, enter the girl. Pretty little blonde thing, Vampire Slayer by trade, and our vampire fell madly in love with her. Eventually the two of them get fleshy with one another. The technical term is "perfect happiness." But when our boy gets there, he goes bad again. So when he gets his soul back for a second time, he figures he can't be anywhere near Miss-Young-Puppy-Eyes without endangering them both. So, what does he do? He takes off. Goes to L.A. to fight evil and atone for his crimes. He's a shadow. A faceless champion of the hapless human race.

Canon Questions ~

btvsangel_canon A community for the purpose of asking and answering questions about the canon of Buffy and Angel.

Angel: Well, I guess I kind of worked it out. If there's no great glorious end to all this, if nothing we do matters... then all that matters is what we do. 'Cause that's all there is. What we do. Now. Today. I fought for so long, for redemption, for a reward, and finally just to beat the other guy, but I never got it.
Kate Lockley: And now you do?
Angel: Not all of it. All I want to do is help. I wanna help because people shouldn't suffer as they do. Because, if there isn't any bigger meaning, then the smallest act of kindness is the greatest thing in the world.

Vids ~

Buffyverse Music Video Database ~ a searchable compendium of information about and links to online music videos based on the shows Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel.

How about The Buffyverse Music Video Database for vids? It's easily searchable by characters or for AtS videos.

And the Buffyverse Dialogue Database for all transcripts. Also has dialogue sorted by characters, plot arcs, relationships, etc. Best dialogue resource there is.

I'm patently shocked that no one has mentioned a_better_lie isn't mentioned yet. It's, I believe, the premiere Connor Angel community.

Well, I guess I took care of it, then. *glee*
