Knowledge Is Power

What the heck is watchers? 

Short answer: Watchers is glorified fan fiction created by professional writers, artists, scientists, lawyers, college students, musicians and other die hard Buffy The Vampire Slayers fans who wanted to keep the stories and characters alive in 2003 so they created five years worth of stories. Best of all, WaTchers is BACK and the story picks up where it left off with the scoobies and the slayers in 2023 fighting evil and living life in the ‘grown up world’ as they raise the next generation of scoobies. So, if you enjoy reading Buffy novels you’re going to adore this! It even has fan art ‘screencaps’ to go with the stories! But try not to judge us too harshly. As the technology advanced, so did our art. Today, you’d think you’re looking at an Revival of Buffy: TVS.

Longer answer: Watchers began as a spin-off to Buffy: The Vampire Slayer before Buffy ended in May 2003, making it one of the longest running virtual series in the fandom since Watchers ran for 5 seasons originally from September 2003 to October 2008 with 123 episodes total. It revolves around Giles and Willow rebuilding the Watchers Council in Cleveland. Watchers was never meant to be Buffy:TVS Season Eight, so she doesn’t take center stage here, but of course you can’t have yearly apocalypses without Buffy can you? And can she really stay away from saving the world? Well, give it a read and let us know what you think at our Discord.
