catalyst2 has posted some preview images and details from an interview with the artist for Buffy #16-19. Yes, it's the artist people wanted it to be. There's also more here on MySpazz

YAY for mirroring the opening lines of Big City Girl. Also, though I love Moline's art more than pigs, I would have liked to see some more people's take on Mel - although given that Chen got her tattoo wrong, I guess I shouldn't complain.

I do wish the continuation of Mel's story wouldn't be in a Buffy story though- I've never liked Buffy/Fray crossovers in fanfic, because I like Mel being the Slayer, and not just another character in the bigger Story of Buffy, and Moline saying that the story is about the Scoobies - I want a Mel story!

As for the lack of mention of Harth in the interview - also a sort of good thing. I like Harth, but when he keeps cropping up in Fray fanfic, it makes Mel look like a one-trick-pony: Melaka Fray is interesting, most fanfic says, because of her brother. Not, as you well know, my take. Mel Fray is interesting, say I, because she approaches her life and Slaying with a firm hand and a wry smile, and in a way unique to here: not Faith, not Nikki, and most definitely not in anyway, is she Buffy.

So that should be good.

OTOH, I've been writing Mel Fray in a number of ways for - three years now, so I'm sure I'm not just going to be Jossed, but I'm going to on many an occasion go ...but Mel wouldn't do that, because I've been writing her with no fresh canon for longer than her original canon actually lasted. So naturally I'm apprehensive. I do think I'd like to run with this in Milliways though - it might give me motivation to actually play, you never know. Naturally, I think, this will involve trying to get some of what I've done with her retconned.

I love the fact, though, that weaverandom and I can at least go through this together. *eyes Robin*

jsflakjdsvflkdjsf sI AM SO GLAD I TURNED THE COMPUTER ON BEFORE I WENT TO BED LOOK LOOK LOOK OMG LOOOOOK! SO SHINY!

We can be all hand-holdy retcon buddies together. (I just wish Robin would quit TEASING and TELL US, so that I can figure out some kind of plot!)

ARE YOU STILL ONLINE???

I think, if we both need to retcon, we should totally use the same game-plotline to do so, y/y?

I never look at Milliways anymore, but if you do do this, I WANT LINKS. Just for that.

Buffy/Mel?

Don't ask me why, it's just this horrid feeling I have coming over me.
