(Meta) Magic in the Buffyverse - the PDF

As promised yesterday, here's the essay I wrote on Magic in the Buffyverse in PDF format, for download.

I don't know if anybody will actually want to download it, so this is something of an experiment. :-) Still, I've seen some people distributing their fic this way, so perhaps there is a demand for it.

Magic in the Buffyverse PDF - right-click and 'Save As'

It took a while longer to create than I anticipated, because I managed to crash Word, the file was so big. ;-) So instead I had to break out the InDesign and paste the text and images into it in proper approved DTP stylee.

Also, when I wrote the original essay, I tried to include screencaps of as many different spellcasters as possible, rather than just having picture after picture of Willow. So there are pictures of Buffy, Xander, Dawn, Giles, Spike and Amy casting spells as well. Of course, as frenchani  pointed out, I did manage to leave out someone important in spellcasting terms to the show. So, for her, here's Ethan Rayne doing some acid...

Down! :-)

By the way, I totally read 'péché mignon' in your last post as meaning "fishy mushroom" (or "mushroom caught by a fisherman") and wondered what on earth you were talking about...

Don't worry, I did manage to work out the real meaning soon enough. I was just deceived by the false friends. ;-)

Ethan Rayne may be my favourite minor character. We didn't get nearly enough of him.

Four episodes, wasn't it? (Plus TLWH) He certainly made a huge impact for such a brief appearance.

I'm certainly keeping the PDF. Future reference an' all.

This is a great idea.

I'm referring to the PDF, not the pouring of a pint of acid onto bare skin. Ghaa.

Well, it's probably preferable to being eaten by a demon, surely?
