Hi guys! Between Season 1 and Season 2 of Buffy Between the Lines we have a couple months off, but we didn’t want our fans to be wanting so we’ve devised the first Buffy Between the Lines fanfic contest! All accepted submissions will be recorded and featured on the Buffy Between the Lines podcast and the winner will receive a SIGNED copy of “Infected” by Scott Sigler, as well as a limited edition SugarShock poster and some other goodies we have tucked away in the Between the Lines Studios vault.

If you’re interested in participating here’s the rules:

  1. Fanfic must be based on Buffy Between the Lines Season 1 and remain true to the TV and audio drama (this rules out non-canonical pairings and AU, we’ll save that for the April Fool’s episodes)
  2. Fanfic must not be posted elsewhere until after the contest.
  3. Fanfic must be between 1,500 – 3,000 words and must have a clear story (beginning, middle/climax, end)
  4. Entries must be received by May 10th, 2008. Winner will be announced at the start of Season 2 (in August).
  5. Please email your entry to buffybetweenthelines[at]gmail.com with “Fanfic Contest Submission” as the subject line. Entries can be within the email or attached text/Word files. Please no .docx files.

Winner will be judged on originality, writing skills, capturing the voices of the characters and general “awesomeness”. Please make sure your entry has been proofed before submitting. If you need a beta reader check out: http://community.livejournal.com/beta_search

BBtL to Recast the Entire Scooby Gang.

buffy_season5_cast-1.jpgAfter numerous efforts on behalf of the production team of Buffy Between the Lines, it’s been decided that the whole cast just needs to be recast. Especially Nick, who doesn’t sound a thing like Xander. “Kim and I sat down and talked, and it really was a hard decision, as much as our cast loves this show – they just aren’t cutting it,” producer Tabitha Grace Smith said.

“We really are striving to be the best, and the guy we have playing Spike – he isn’t even British!” Kim said in a follow up statement. Harsh criticism also reigned down on the actress playing Enya, but she was not available for comment.

“I can’t believe it,” Cliss said in a phone interview. “It’s like, all my dreams are dead.” Other cast members expressed shock and amazement. “I knew people didn’t like me, but I didn’t think it would come to this,” said Tasha, who plays Dawn. “That’s extreme Dawn hate.”

“I can’t even stand the guy we have playing Angel. Seriously. The guy can’t pronounce babies correctly,” said Tabitha. “I think we’ll just have Emma do all the roles. She’s got a fantastic voice.”

“I knew we should have stuck to shadow puppets,” said Beth Nelson, Crew Manager for Season 2 of Buffy Between the Lines.

Auditions are being held tomorrow in New York and LA in an attempt to salvage the rest of the series. Click here to find the locations.
