The March Meta Matters Challenge

March Meta Matters Challenge banner by thenewbuzzwuzz

Dates: March 1 to April 1

While creators have often used multiple sites to host their works, one type of work has generally been left out of fans' efforts at archiving and preserving fanworks -- meta. In many cases, meta posts have not been copied anywhere else other than the location where they were first posted, leaving them particularly vulnerable to loss.

So what if we can make a small dent in getting it saved? The March Meta Matters Challenge is focused on not just new meta, but making sure older meta gets a chance to be read and remain a part of fandom history. That's also why the challenge will be using the Archive of Our Own as a destination site.

The MMM Challenge will be a low stress event that provides you reminders and company as you locate and copy over your content. The challenge will also give you an opportunity to promote the meta you're preserving as well as some prompts to write new meta!

Find out more at our introductory post and get some detailed how-to's in our FAQ. The challenge is open to fans at any online location, so do stop by and join in!

It's Time to Make Those 2017 Lists!

Before you happily kick 2017 to the curb, remember the things that were actually good about it, such as Buffyverse fanworks!

Gifting your fellow fans some lovely items to start the coming year with is a great way to spread a little cheer to all those wonderful writers, artists, vidders, mods, and more who have given you something to smile (or maybe cry) about during 2017.

buffyversetop5 will reopen for its 2017 session on January 1, 2018 at midnight UTC (check that in your time zone) and will remain open through 6 PM GMT on January 16th.

So start checking your download folders, your tags, your bookmarks and memories to see what you enjoyed this year and what you want to make sure the Buffyverse community doesn't miss from 2017. If you want to help spread the news, several artists have made us starter treats to entice friends to the party. If you have any questions about the session, ask them here!

Active Buffy the Vampire Slayer RPG Seeking Players for Major Roles!



VERY ACTIVE Buffy the Vampire Slayer / Angel game seeking players to fill the following roles:

  • Xander Harris

  • Willow Rosenberg

  • Andrew

  • Kennedy

  • Gwen Raiden

  • Harmony Kendall

  • Robin Wood

  • Etc.

Our game is set after the end of season 7 of Buffy and during Angel season 5.


Buffy and co. have established the Hyperion as their base of Slayer HQ with the help of Wesley, Fred, and Lorne, while Angel, Cordelia, and Gunn are working at Wolfram & Hart. A more detailed summary will be offered for new players.


We have some fun and exciting plots coming up that we would really love to find some new players for. Our game strives for excellent writing quality and is fast paced. Tags are answered usually within the week or less.


We also will consider OCs if we think the idea could fit into the game. Of course, we are much more likely to consider accepting an OC if you also take one of the canon characters.


Please note that a writing sample will be required for the character you wish to play.
