Angel The Scoobies Have Come and Gone... Now What?

Cinders posted on Jun 29, 2009 at 06:55AM
I felt bad about how I copped out on Katie with the Scoobies, so to pay her back for all her tremendous hard work, I decided to get the ball rolling on the Angel thing.

Pros and Cons about a Post-Scoobies Award Ceremony!

Pro: We've learned a lot from organizing the Scoobies, so we can work out the kinks with this show. We can make things more expedient and interesting, and help Katie and other organizers by adding KEY WORDED CONTENT. Go on now and add that, kiddos.

Con: The Scoobies was a big event on the Buffy spot, and it took some doing to dreg up some interest in it. Angel, being a smaller spot (grrr!) and coming in the wake of both the Scoobies AND FGT, might need even MORE advertising, as people will be burned out from all the events and stuff.

Pro: After we finish the Angel awards, all that's left is to have the winners of the Angel categories face off with the winners of the Scoobies categories to see which is really the ULTIMATE show! (Even though I think that votes will say the "ultimate show" is Buffy, I still think it would be fun). For example, we can have Anthony Stewart Head (beast actor-series) face off against the winner of the best actor-series of Angel!

Con: The Scoobies took a lot of work. This is gonna take, at the very least, the same amount of work. And I'm committed to not letting my responsibilities slide this time! (Which includes NOT saving vote counting until the last minute). Also, people have real lives, which can often conflict with their much more important online lives. Huh.

In short, this event is both good and bad (mostly good), just like Angel himself! So let's get the ball rolling with the simple start of NAMES.

What's this shindig going to be called? Suggestions, anyone?

All right... I'm thinking of a name... give me a couple hours...

But I'll help out with this IN ANY WAY I POSSIBLY CAN. I would've helped out w/ the Scoobies, but I, unfortuately, had problems in my "real" life. Gah.

I was talking about the name thing with ArabellaElfie even before the Scoobies were over. We had sort of unofficially settled on calling this one the Shanshus, but if anyone has a better suggestion it's not set in stone.
sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas Cinders said…
Aha, yes, that's what I suspected, Katie always being ten steps ahead of the curve and all. Since this is all about voting, maybe we should throw a few names out there and have people vote on them in a pick?

Or we could just settle on one (like the Shanshus) here.
sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas AgentCoop said…
The Pick idea sounds good. As you say, the Angel Spot is pretty slow, so throwing open the naming for a vote might ignite some interest.
sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas ladolcevita said…
I could help with vote counting this time, seeing as, well, I don't have a life.
As for names, how 'bout... actually, yeah, Shanshus is good.
sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas destuctogirl said…
Shanshus work, or maybe something like the PTB awards?
sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas JoweSparrow said…
big smile
Or something like...


Because there seem to be a good deal of those on this show... :D

sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas ArabellaElfie said…
Hmmm.... Well, I am completely at the mercy of the Pop so I'm for anything but here are the things that were popping about my noggin.

Shanshus (Coop on this)
Angel Avengers
Angels (in relation to his card)
Broodies (rhyme with Scoobies!)
PTBs (Destuctogirl)
Helpers I don't know!

Cinders, you have my layout perfect! I was thinking we do Angel after Buffy and then the whole shebang.
sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas Cinders said…
I dunno if it can be the name, but I'd like to do something with Ministers of Grace, especially since I'd never heard it before until I googled "Angel Fang Gang" and found link.
sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas JoweSparrow said…
hmmm... I'm starting to lean towards the Broodies... :D
sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas Cinders said…
Ooh! I just got an idea for a category: "The Wolfram and Hart Employee of the Month" (or season, or series, whatever). You know, best WH character. Lilah, Gavin, Lindsey, Lee, Linwood, Manners, etc.
sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas ArabellaElfie said…
Cinders, I have an idea! What if we make that 'Honorary' Award (Just as Joss got the Honorary Mr. Pointy) for the whatever-we-call it, the Minister of Grace?

Love the category idea!

So, I was thinking in the area around September? Any thoughts?
sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas Cinders said…
Oooh, yeah, Mister of Grace as the super-special award... but wouldn't Joss get that too?

September sounds good. After FGT at any rate.
sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas AgentCoop said…
Since we're already making suggestions for categories I wanted to toss these out so I don't forget them:

Best Sunnydale Guest Star-Example: Andrew in The Girl In Question

Best Sunnydale Reference-Example: Cordy repeating "Hello salty goodness" in Spin The Bottle

Best Cliffhanger-Angel was the king of the cliffhanger ending, especially in seasons 3 & 4

Best Prophecy-As JoweSparrow pointed out, there were a lot of prophecies on the show

That's all I've got for now.

PS-September sounds good.

Hey guys, I'm Amy (bet you couldn't have guessed that) and I've kinda been lurking around these parts for a bit but now I'm ready to jump right in (and because only about a month ago I finished watching all of Angel and Buffy for the first time), so if you need any help with the Shanshus/Broodies/Officially Unnamed Angel awards I'd be happy to help.

At the moment I have one idea for a category, which is good coz it shows that my brain is still kinda working even though I'm sick atm.. lol, but my brain isn't working quite well enough to think of an actual name for it now but it's like Best character change or switch or alternate personality or something like that. Examples: Cordy/Princess Cordy, Angel/Angelus, Gunn/lawyer Gunn, Fumbling bumbling earlier seasons Wesley/umm bad ass later seasons Wesley, Fred/Illyria maybe even vamp Darla/human Darla?

Yeah I'm too sick to actually put all that into proper english atm so sorry about that but yeah... Hopefully I can talk to you guys more often soon. :)
sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas ladolcevita said…
Best crossover (as in, like, Angel ringing somewhere in City Of then hanging up, and Buffy picking up the phone and there's nobody there in The Freshman) as a category?
sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas ArabellaElfie said…
Amy, Alice, those are both great!

Ok, I am going to make this into a pick on Wednesday - we need a name. So get your ideas in!

I'm thinking of iconing up soon.
sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas nightchild7 said…
how about the AI's?
sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas JoweSparrow said…
The prophesies.

or prophecies.

Whichever spelling you prefer. :D
sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas Cinders said…
What about "The Fangs"

Then you could make posters like "C'mon, let's see those Fangs!" ;o)

I dunno, it was the best I got.
sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas ArabellaElfie said…
Lol, I like that one Cinders!

So, if I have these all correct, here is what we have so far;

Angel Avengers

Anything else? I was going to make a pick last week and was a bad girl and flaked out. I might do one tonight but I thought I'd post this just to cover my behind which I'm sure will flake again.

Any other ideas?

sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas Cinders said…
As punishment for being a bad girl, I'm going to force you to watch "Bad Girls" over and over until you've learned your lesson.

... What do you mean it's a Buffy episode and not a disciplinary porn video?
sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas AgentCoop said…
It could be both. You know, Buffy...Faith...throw in a little leather...

Sorry, I got distracted there. Don't worry about the Pick, Katie. I was planning to do one later today anyway. And now you've saved me the trouble of getting the list together! :)
sa loob ng isang taon na ang nakalipas ArabellaElfie said…
Either way, I'm not sure it counts as punishment ;F


Thanks Coop! You are a lifesaver.
