OK, this was interesting:
Hello there, Masquerade, my name is Eric and I just want to tell you that I recently got into “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” and I must say it certainly makes you want to pursue it more! I particulary like episode “The Witch” when we find out the real reason why Amy was not acting like her usual self….because she WASN’T her usual self! She was trapped inside her mother’s body! Some kind of weird witchcraft spell, from what I understand.
Anyway, I was actually referred to your website long before my recent Buffy interest. Specifically, I was referred to it via another website, which does an in-depth study of the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon. The webmaster’s name is Vicky, and in the introduction of her site (where she says “Read This First”), she specifies that your website inspired her to do an analytical overview on the Ninja Turtles cartoon (containing a hyperlink to it as well.) And the funny thing is, I was so impressed with Vicky’s assessment (or “dissection”, as she calls it) of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon that I thought it would be cool to do one of my own, but on a different program. So after thinking it over (and noticining some occasional parallels here and there), I decided to do one of my own on “Gilligan’s Island”. Not only that, but I referred my Internet buddy, Sara, to Vicky’s site as well, and it inspired her to do an in-depth study of HER own on the old sitcom “The Brady Bunch”. Even my two roommates, Jim and Ari (short for “Ariel”), were fascinated by it as well, and that’s why Jim is doing one on “Digimon” and Ari is doing one on “Dragonball Z”. And finally, my friend, Greg, is doing one on the “Law and Order” series. So, you see, you’ve been a true source of inspiration for a lot of people! Here we have the Buffyverse, the Turtleverse, the Islandverse, the Bradyverse, the Digiverse, the Dragonverse, and the Lawverse!
so you see, Masquerade, while it may be true that Vicky’s website was a more direct source of inspiration for me (for one thing, I was already familiar with the Ninja Turtles cartoon at the time I came across it, but had never seen the Buffy or Angel series), it was you that started it all. That’s the purpose of this email….to inform you of the chain reaction your website has produced! Keep up the good work!
