Meta index

1st January 2009 (17:01)

Happy new year, everybody.

I've recently finished a Meta Index Page, similar to the Fanfiction Index Page I put together a couple of months ago. For some reason, I don't think it's showing up on people's Friends pages, so this is to let anyone who's interested know about it.

I've indexed a total of 73 items of meta, categorised as follows:

  • Character analysis
  • Analysis of themes and plot arcs
  • Essays on how the Buffyverse works
  • Miscellaneous (mostly meta-discussion of fanfic, memes, etc)
  • Debate about the 'Buffy' and 'Angel' comics (the comics themselves, as opposed to discussion of their characters and themes, which I've included in the relevant sections)
  • Commentaries on my own fic and videos
  • Reviews of Buffyverse publications
  • Transcripts
The page serves a couple of purposes. I can link to it in my LJ sidebar, which has otherwise got too full to include everything I've done. It's also a handy reference for when I know I've written something on a topic before, and want to find out where and when so I can refer to it or link other people. Finally, of course, I'd like to think that a few people might look through the list, see something they've not seen before, and enjoy reading it. :-)

AD blowing straight through naptime

Holy Brainiac, Batman.

Good idea though, keep everything neat and organized.

It was partly an excuse to re-read things I'd forgotten about writing. :-)

(Happy belated birthday, by the way)

Hi, well I have a lot of fun reading all your stuff about Buffyverse in general, it's really interesting your way of writing about some themes and to share that cool details that you find in the series. I love your fics too, the last one was so funny, I enjoy with everything in this site, so thank you and congratulations!

I'm from Chile, so English is not my original language, but when I see things so incredible like yours, I'm happy for being capable of read it!

buffy - big damn hero - s2

It may be that you backdated? Because backdated posts don't show up on the friends pages.

I'm glad you made this post and made a Meta Index. Your meta is always fascinating. Your brain is a treasure to the Buffyverse fandom community. Thank you so much!

I think it must be the dates: I started writing the post several weeks ago, with it set to private, and once it was finished I reset it to public and edited the date. Probably next time I'll need to cut and paste into a new post instead, to avoid the problem.
