Right. I've been laughing hysterically ever since I found out what happened! I tried to find a good hiding place, so I could see for myself, but I was caught by security and sent home! But since the story will break soon anyway, I'll let you in on what took place.

You know how they love surprising people in Reality TV Shows? Well, they thought they'd surprise Buffy. What with living in this cocoon for months on end, she never knew that Spike was even alive! I suppose they outlined the plan to him, but since when has Spike followed the rules?

Anyway, there she is, standing by the fence in her perfectly manicured garden, when (on the stroke of midnight!), Spike turns up on his motorbike! The stories I've heard are all conflicting, so I'm not sure exactly what happened, but it seems 'someone' forgot that they were dealing with a vampire and a Slayer. Once Buffy understood what the reality of the situation was, she yelled something about hating it when people screwed with her life and threw away her wedding ring. Then she and Spike knocked out the crew and the security people and disappeared! I guess they didn't feel like having a camera crew along for the ride!

No one has told Angel yet... he's still asleep in his den, where he dozed off last night, after drawing portraits of Cordelia and Darla.

ETA: How could I forget? Today is Sexy!Spike day! *changes icon*

Aha! There is a tape! And I’ve got it! There is trouble on ‘Happily Ever After’....

Now, as is usually the case with these things, the tape is not the best quality, and cuts off just when it gets interesting - but this is what I saw:

(Willow and Buffy, sat talking, obviously thinking they wouldn’t be overheard).
Buffy: “Will - are you happy? I mean here - with Oz and everything.”
Willow: “Of course! It’s like all my fantasies became real and I’m no-more-gloomy-Willow! Aren’t you happy?”
Buffy: “Of course I’m happy! This is fairytale stuff! It’s just... well... kinda... boring?”
Willow: “Well, I guess there’s not a lot to do really, but... you’re with the love of your life! Your soulmate! Isn’t that enough?”
Buffy: “Yes! Yes! I love him! He’s just - well, broody!”
Willow: “But I thought you liked that!”
Buffy: “So did I! And I do! It’s sort of mysterious and deep.... but there’s just no - well no fighting! He always agrees! I just wish that sometimes we could have a really big row, and then we could make up and have this really hot sex with-”
Willow: “With what?”
Buffy: “Nothing! I was just thinking about-”

And that’s it! But me thinks that Buffy might not be a happy little bunny after all!

Wait - someone is knocking on the door!

(pause)

OMG!!!! The gossip I heard earlir tonight is true!!!!! The viewing figures have gone down and down, and the network nearly cancelled the show!!! And to save it, there will added a new character... a handsome stranger with a mysterious past, who’ll arrive later tonight on his motorbike! Squee! The plan is that he and Buffy will have an affair, and then run off together. They’ll probably end up going round world or something like that. (After the succes of ‘Long Way Round’, executives are keen on road trip shows!)

And look! My icon! I’m slowly clawing my way out of the Rabbit Hole!

Last part!

Dinner party.... I nearly wore pearls, but [livejournal.com profile] scarlettgirl suggested that this might draw attention to my neck and remind Angel of his bad old days...

I never saw Buffy as the hostess type, but I guess I should have remembered ‘Pangs’ and how utterly focussed she was on that Thanksgiving Dinner. Multiply by 100 and you’ll get the idea! Angel was mostly quiet - he and Oz sort of nodded to each other and he actually had something resembling a conversation with Wood. Faith and Sam were surprisingly friendly, and Xander and Riley did that buddy-thing that american males seem to be so good at. The ‘girls’ that had been invited for Xander’s sake turned out to be Nina and Nancy... didn’t really work out very well. Nina was lovely though, although she kept looking at Angel rather strangely. Which left me with Willow and Buffy. They’re both lovely, but I think they’re taken this whole tv-show thing far too seriously. I asked Buffy if she still patrolled, and she looked at me like I was insane. “This is Sea Haven. There are no monsters! That’s why we moved here! So we could have a nice, quiet, normal life, without apocalypses and fighting and all that - that stuff!” She sounded almost as though she was trying to convince herself more than me... the only scary thing of the evening was Willow - she seemed well on the way to turning into her mother. I tried to talk to Oz, but he was contemplating the moon and uncommunicative.

Now my husband got on rather well with Angel - they started talking about philosophy! You don’t want to know - believe me! *sigh*

There were a lot of deep meaningful looks between the main stars, but apart from the thinly veiled hostility from some members of the party, everything went without a hitch! And this might be a problem... listening to some of the crew talking, I found out some juicy gossip... oh - have to run. Children need putting to bed. Will report back later! Sh!

Next part.

Ok, back now. The person at the door turned out to be my husband! Which I had sort of half-expected, but since he called out “Honey, I’m home!” (I mean how much of a cliché is that?) I began to suspect that maybe he had changed too.

Well he looked the same, only he’d had a haircut (it’s very blue-collar now) (can you say that about a haircut?) and the jacket he was hanging up was not one I’d seen before. At this time of year he usually wears his Angel-coat (*drool*), only now he had a boring tan-coloured jacket. But then it’s all sunny and warm outside, so I guess we’re not in the UK anymore. And then he asked me how I felt and kissed me... on the forehead!? Huh? He must have sensed that something was wrong, because he sat me down and I began to ask questions. It went something like this:

Me: Where are we? And why are we here? And where’s all our stuff? And the girls?...”
Husband: “Is this some strange pregnancy thing?”
Me: “What? I went to bed last night in our own house, and woke up here this morning and it’s sort of freaking me out!”
Husband: ”But you were the one who wanted to move!”
Me: “Move where?”
Husband: “Oh, dear!” (thinks) “You must have amnesia!”
Me: “Amnesia?”
Husband: ”Oh, the producers will probably be very happy about that. Let me give them a call!”

Then he disappeared. When he came back a little later, he said that he had to get back to work, but just wondered how much I recalled... I did remember Buffy and Angel right? I must have looked rather shocked at this, because - forget Buffy? Just not possible! And then (to explain I suppose) he added: “You know - those documentary shows you used to love!”

Documentary????

Then he had to run, because he needed to get something to eat before going back to the office. But he did say he’d pick up the children, so at least I don’t have to worry about that! And a producer is coming round in a while, so hopefully I’ll find out what’s going on... my guess is that we’re in some reality-tv show. But I would never want to go on one of those, so I’m still very confused.... *sigh*

Well, after snooping around, I'm fairly certain I don't live on Wisteria Lane... the houses are smaller and cosier, and well... a bit twee. When I inspected my (very large!) wardrobe, I couldn't find any of my usual clothes. Suffice to say, that I now look like an extra from 'Grease'. Everything has floral patterns on it, and the house is strangely old fashioned. But spotlessly clean, which is a nice change. I couldn't find my husband or children, but there's plenty of photographs around, so they might just have left already. They look very tanned and shiny in all the pictures... it's beginning to creep me out. Oh - just heard the door open. Will report back asap!

After making my last post, I looked around and suddenly realised that I wasn't in my own house. Or rather that my house seemed to have morphed into something like the suburban perfections seen on 'Desperate Housewives'. Will go investigate now...

ETA: LJ will only let me use my 'tai chi love' 'Dear Diary' B/A icon... *is worried*

Next part.

This is the 'tai chi love' icon made by [livejournal.com profile] awmp in case you're curious.

Just in case there is anyone who has not yet heard about January 27th! )

Husband and myself had some fun tonight with LJ-quizzes (he's beginning to see the attraction of this place - finally), and in the personality tests we came out similar, so I guess that's good.

I also did a quiz to see who my lj-family would be... )
