Re: Should I try out Star Trek Online?

So, New Kentaur. I wonder if the STO writers are going for allegory here, especially with the Kentauri versions of MSNBC and Fox News that you can access as you wander their filthy polluted ghetto full of people dying from the toxins in the air.

Re: Put together a Magical Self-Defence Kit for Muggles (RAR?).

If you want to accept the movies as canon, memory wiping charms can edit people and events from newspapers and photographs, so a tattoo might be edited as well. I'm still wondering if Hermione was able to restore her parents' memories of her. A small derringer might be a good item for the kits as we...

Re: You are Angel (RAR).

It occurs to me that any attempt to thwart the prophecy should be a) very specific, and b) timed to ocure as close to the prophecied even as possible, to give as little time as possible for things to be warped back to their "proper" course. Example: If Drusilla and Spike are both staked i...

My one issue reg. staking Darla is that she is all tied into the prophecies around Connor.

First off, rob some crypts. Sunnydale is awash in gold, treasure, and magical items. Second, establish a base of operations. As others have said, Angel's place from season 3 seems nice enough. Failing that, Dracula's castle will do. Hire contractors to install a modern day vault and modern security ...
