Buffy the Vampire Slayer Blog Series



Throughout the summer of 2017, and in honour of the twentieth anniversary of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997-2003), Sheffield Gothic explored each of the show’s seven seasons in a special blog series dedicated to Buffy. Each week the series focused on a different season, publishing a diverse range of posts exploring Xander, Giles, Faith, heroinism and victimhood, vampire boyfriends, werewolves and so much more. We owe a massive thank you to our fabulous contributors whose brilliant posts have made the series what it is! Here’s a shout out especially to Lauren Nixon, Kathleen Hudson, Holly Dann, Kaja Frank, Michelle Mastro, Claire Healey, Dana Alex, Ash Darrow, Jennifer DeRoss, Adam Smith, and Steph Mullholland.

Below you will find a list of all the posts published in the series starting with Sheffield Gothic’s list of the top ten episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer published on the show’s anniversary (10th March 2017) and then continuing through our recent season-by-season explorations.  So if you haven’t already, make sure you check out all of our amazing posts, and if you want to share your favourites, or if you want to  share your thoughts and comments, tweet us at @SheffieldGothic using the hashtag #BuffySlays20.

  4. Vampires is not at all like in the movies or books. Sure, I understand. You are young you have the whole world open to you. You can be anything that you choose if you apply yourself and try hard to work toward that goal. But being a Vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, But how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the Vampires Lord on his Email: Richvampirekindom@gmail.com

  8. I'm giving a testimony on how me and my fiance became a vampire. This was how i and my fiance became Vampire, I was browsing the internet searching on how i could be transformed. When i came across the email of a man named Lord Mark. who was a VAMPIRE so I told him that I and my fiance has always dreamed of becoming a VAMPIRES so he asked me my name, country, State, address, photo, etc. and asked me to contact the market of spells for the Hindu materials required for our transformation. So I did and he said that a vampire will be assigned to guide us and direct us on how the items are to be used. After five days I and my fiance was totally a vampire. if you are interested in becoming a vampire, contact him for more information on how you could also be transformed.
