angel-dragon

Like last time, I made notes on some of the main points. (I didn't bother with questions where Brian's answer was simply "that's a spoiler" or words to that effect, or questions like "who's your favourite character to write?". Just AtF plot-related matters.)

1) There's no known connection between Angel's dragon and the one who appeared in 'The Gift'.

2) The fate of Connor's [fake] parents is going to be revealed. Whether everyone knows that Connor is Angel's son is a spoiler.

3) BL has a complete story worked out on how Spike got from NFA to his situation at the start of After The Fall, but doesn't know if it would make a commercially successful comic, since we all know how it ends...

4) Illyria wasn't trying to kill the dragon, she was having fun working out her aggression on it, and was actually quite pleased it was there. As for whether Illyria would have killed Angel if Spike hadn't intervened, "that's a spoiler".

5) The questions of what happened to LA, how the people in the real world are dealing with the situation, and whether time is passing at the same rate in LA and the rest of the world will be dealt with later.

6) Spike's entourage are wearing bikinis because it's their own choice of clothing for lounging around in the mansion, not because they're being manipulated by the evil patriarchy (ie Spike). This answer may have been given tongue-in-cheek. :-) They will be shown wearing different clothing later on in the arc.

7) BL didn't directly answer the question as to whether there are any Slayers trapped in LA, but when asked later on if Spike's entourage included "Slayers, witches, and so on" he neither confirmed nor denied that, and added "it includes all sorts of things."

:Blinks:

Not sure if I understand that. Maybe it will be clearer when I can listen to it myself?

Thanks so much for doing this, Stormwreath. Very frustrating having to wait.

I don't think you need to blink. I relistened to the segment on Spike and what made me uneasy was just the notion that there was a story that could be told about how Spike got from NFA to AtF. Sort of like we won't be getting the whole story about Spike as it is. But the reason it's not likely to be written is cause Brian doesn't think there'd be much interest because we'd already where Spike is at the end of it so it's not that exciting to read. (Nothing to suggest that Spike's story would be dusty-over at that point -- if that's why you are blinking!)

Tense moment

No, I wasn't afraid Spike would end up dead. I really, really don't expect that to happen. He, Buffy and Angel, are the three most popular characters in the franchise. It would be nuts to kill any of them.

I must say, I'd be surprised if the dots weren't joined with Spike's story to some extent. After all, his story appears to be tied in with Illyria's, since they've ended up together. Also, I thought he would be one of the characters focussed on in First Night, but possibly that's not so after all.

Can I add one?

8) When asked what sort of a being Angel is, Brian says it would be a huge spoiler to say, beyond what we already know, which is that he's not a vampire. That would imply that it's premature to assume Angel is a human (though of course, he could be.)

I'll have to re-listen to the part where he talked about the comic he's not going to write about Spike going from NFA to AtF. It made me uneasy, but I can't pin down why.

Oh dear! Now I feel uneasy too, and I haven't even listened to it yet. Mind you, I ended up uneasy about Spike after listening to part 1 (because of my aversion to the idea of a Spike/Spider 'ship) so it's pretty much par for the course.

Almost anything about Spike makes me uneasy.

Interesting what you say about Angel. I will assume nothing.
