Still Pretty #66. Dead Man’s Party (S3.02)

“Do you like my mask? Isn’t it pretty? It raises the dead!” Buffy’s back, and so are the dead, and Lani and Noelle get their hootenanny on with one of the most quoted episodes of Buffy, “Dead Man’s Party.” (S3.02)

Still Dead #32. 90% Dark. (S3.19-20)

Play your little games. We’ve got to go save our immortal enemy.

Dark Wesley and Wicked Lilah steal the show as the Hyperion is infested by thaumogenesis followed by the return of Connor as Still Dead dives in to “The Price” and “A New World” (S3.19-20). 

Still Pretty #65. Anne (S3.01)

“I’m Buffy, the Vampire Slayer. And you are?”

It’s all about identity as Noelle and Lani take a look at Anne (S3.01), celebrating the return of Chanterelle, loving up on Oz, and wishing the Joyce Summers conflict vending machine would just friggin’ break.

Still Dead #31. Justine, Please. (S3.17-18)

“Angel, you’re messing with primordial powers of darkness here.”

Buckle up for a dark and twisty Watcher followed by a skippable Skipper on today’s #StillDead as we find a wounded Wesley in the hospital, a corporeal Sahjhan on the streets of LA, and a soul-sold Gunn in a demon casino.

Listen Up A-Holes #28: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (S2.8-10)

We’re going to go kill the man that ruined our lives. BEST. DAY. EVER.

Joshua and Lani delve deep into the hidden alien city that barely was as well as the MacLachlan-magnificence that is (apparently) based on Thor villain, Mr. Hyde.

Still Pretty #64. Becoming, Pts 1 & 2 (S2.21-22)

“Close your eyes.”

For the devastating Season 2 finale, Noelle and Lani call in special guest Dr. Kelly Jones to help them process “Becoming” Parts 1 & 2 (S2.21-22).

Awegasm #09. Awed by Darkness

In this episode of Awegasm, Kelly and Noelle take on the taboo and the twisty, and question what it means to “love” not-so-happy stories, as they delight in Darkness.

Still Pretty #63. Go Fish (S2.20)

“You’re going to think about that later, mister, and you’re gonna laugh.”

Lani and Noelle smell something bad in the notoriously nasty “Go Fish” (2.20).

“Thank you so much!”

I discovered your podcast when you guest hosted on Buffering the Vampire Slayer, just a few weeks ago, and you have already changed my life with How Story Works!

All my life I’ve felt the need to write, but it wasn’t until recently that I sat down with an idea for a novel. In the past two years, I have started, and lost the way with two book ideas. I didn’t know what I was missing, how to bring my feelings and ideas together in a coherent way, until I discovered you and HSW.

I have only made it to Episode 12: Seven Anchor Scenes, but feel I FINALLY have the tools to build a map for my book!

I am so excited to dig deeper into HSW and in turn my book!

So, thank you. Discovering you is the turning point in my dream of writing a book.
