I was Spike. RT @ErinRN: @bradmeltzer what character did you play on Buffy? I just don't remember who you are.

Oh. My. Gosh.

My husband had to ask me to 'please quit laughing'!

Now that was a fun read; thanks for posting!
It's complete? I thought he was answering questions through part of tomorrow.
He was taking questions from 12pm noon yesterday until 12pm noon today.
I loved it. He's very funny. And I seriously loved a lot of his answers. WOOT!
Ah, thanks. I thought he'd tweeted that today, but nope.
Can I see, twitter is the most horrile platform to do an interview? I didn't make i very far, does anyone have the gist of actual information in this? (Was there any?)
What exactly was the point of any of this again? Sorry, but he just came across as snide and disinterested me to me.

I hope part two comes across a wee bit better.
Yeah Changeling, he may have been better to do a formspring Q&A through twitter like the very funny and awesome Brian Lynch has. Its a hell of a lot easier to follow. Gotta say, I thought there'd be a lot more interesting questions answered/asked than there were, didnt seem to be anything revealed or hinted at that we didnt already know. Ah well. Appreciate his time anyway.
This just revealed to me the mass of ignorant people on Twitter (though having a Twitter itself reminds me of that every day).

"Will there really be a Buffy season 8?"
"Who did you play on Buffy?"

....Come on, now.
Yeah, Twitter's blocked at my work. Any kind-hearted soul want to copy/paste or distill some info for us? I'd greatly appreciate it.

As for ignorance, I imagine that the vast majority of people on Twitter are not in Buffy fandom. They may have watched the show and moved on, but they don't have any idea of what goes on behind the scenes--they may not even know Joss's name. I don't think that makes them ignorant, it just says they're not super-fans. Plus, it underlines why Twitter might not be the best...venue for this sort of thing. Only super-fans care about S8.

[ edited by Lirazel on 2010-05-07 16:55 ]
I don't have a Twitter and have NO idea how to navigate one. How do I find the answers to the questions? All I'm seeing on his page are the questions.
luv4whedon, basically the question and answer would all be in one post. For example, in the posting "Nope. RT @lmblack21: I love Buffy and Angel talk about how they missed each other, was there a reason there was no declarations of love?" the portion after "RT @lmblack21" is the question. RT stands for re-tweet, which indicates that he is re-posting somebody else's tweet. The "Nope." at the beginning of the post would then be the answer to the question "I love Buffy and Angel talk about how they missed each other, was there a reason there was no declarations of love?" I hope that sort of helps!

[ edited by Axed84 on 2010-05-07 18:27 ]

I thought there would be more questions. Kind of disappointing. All the usual shipy questions but I wanted to here more about the Spike/time travel theory and why Willow was happy to see him.
Yeah, both this and the recent Meltzer interview have been extremely underwhelming.
We should probably copy/paste these into the thread as using his Twitter feed as a link will stale really fast.

ETA: ...and done!

Hey, my question about clothing was pure hard hitting journalism, it was :p
Lirazel, I wasn't trying to use "ignorant" as a demeaning term; rather, the fact is that most people on Twitter -- or most Buffy fans on Twitter -- are casual fans, and are therefore ignorant regarding this behind-the-scenes stuff. They're just unaware. I agree that Twitter really isn't the best place for an interview of all things.
My question might be for Georges, but "Do you know what a sari is?"

Just read it today. Little things annoy me. Big things annoy me too, but little ones really do.
@redeem147: You do realize that there are a myriad different types of saris, right? Just as there are hundreds of different Indian languages, there are tons of different ways to tie a sari. There are regional differences that can be used to identify the origin of the wearer. Point is, there isn't just one type, or way to wear a sari.

[ edited by wenxina on 2010-05-08 07:39 ]
Of course there are, wexina. But that was a choli and lehenga. A sari is a long strip of cloth worn in many, many ways.

And looking at what you said, you probably know that, and I'm sounding pedantic. I think I'm just tired of having people look at my salwar kameez and say, "Nice sari."

[ edited by redeem147 on 2010-05-08 15:10 ]
lol at the salwar kameez part. :)
