[[folder: Darla, The Master and Angel]] *Angel has a soul that was forced on him by the Gypsies. Darla and the Master spend a fair amount of time and energy attempting to turn Angel over to their side instead of the more rational options of accepting it cannot be done certainly not the means they are employing. Angel is not good because he woke up one day and realized that vampires are evil and he wants to be good! No he was cursed with a soul and Darla knows this and presumably so does the Master. Even if he'd somehow managed to kill Buffy it wouldn't have made Angel join them again. Best case scenario he limps off to never never comeback land or commits suicide. Slightly more likely he goes on the warpath against them. No attempts are ever made to our knowledge to magically extract the soul from him. Granted flashbacks of the Master suggest that he was never fond of Angelus and all that stuff he spouted in S1 is just EarlyInstallmentWeirdness but Darla would have tried to find a witch or two and force them to fix Angelus and we see no indications either tried this. S2 has Angel (fail) trying to fool Spike into thinking he's evil and that his good persona is just an act he puts on so she doesn't bother him. Spike like Darla however knows what really happened so really both of them were terminally retarded there. [[/folder]]

***Cover is an entry fee. You might, if an event promoter or club manager is feeling like they need some bonus gimmicks to get people inside, get extras with your cover charge such as a drink ticket or a flowering onion voucher. Doubtful a cover charge would include gimmicks in a town where there is apparently no competition in the nightlife industry. But you never know. Maybe the Bronze's manager is super generous because he knows he's making a killing at the door?

*** Whether or not anyone noticed isn't the problem, whether or not they actually bothered to report it to a teacher is. Given the usual level of good order and discipline in that madhouse, the answer is "they probably didn't".

* However, as someone above pointed out, it would explain a bit. After all, when Angel sired a guy, things turned out weird due to his own soul. Perhaps The Master, in life, was an evil emperor who got sired and just just kept being an evil emperor. One of his subjects tried to put the soul back in, maybe thinking the soul and the demon would kill each other due to overloading the body, and instead, The Master just continued being the exact same guy as before. After all, how would somebody know what a soul would do to a vampire without trying it beforehand? The gypsies knew it wouldn't kill Angel(us), so it had to have been done before.

** Also, wasn't it implied that the revival somehow powered Buffy up a bit? She certainly has a lot less trouble fighting the Master and other vampires from that point forward.

** This is partially (possibly) addressed in Season 7. She probably didn't simply wake up one morning invisible, instead she probably faded from sight over several days, weeks, months possibly even years. It's directly mentioned by both Willow and Xander that they shared several classes with her and never noticed her and she was constantly trying to involve herself with Cordelia. We don't really know the mechanics of what happened other than it was apparently a frequent enough ocurrance that the Government (Initiative) understood what was going on and had an on going program for when someone with that particular ailment arrived. Knowing that there are either a LOT of Hellmouths or kids turning invisible because too many people ignore them has little to do with the Hellmouth.

*** Out of Universe I always assumed that part of the prophesy was met when Buffy and the gang screwed up and went after the Preacher instead of the child. In-Universe prophesies are tricky things as the Master tells us. Buffy didn't KNOW the Anointed in a Biblical way, it frankly wouldn't the last time that exact wording was important in these things.

** Anyhow, the prophecy says "The Chosen One will meet the Anointed, and she will not know him." But when it happened she knew perfectly well who he was.

* It's true that Technopaganism is only directly mentioned a few times but it seems to have been fairly well defined in ''I Robot, you Jane''. A technopagan is someone who blends modern science and ancient magics. As Jenny says: Bad ole science didn't make the magic go away. It's clearly demonstrated that for the purposes of a spell that must be read scanning it into a computer satisfies the spell. (Which considering Xander was able to set a book on fire later by speaking Latin in front of the books makes you wonder how often this must happen and how Giles didn't know better.) I imagine that the majority of spells that only involve verbal components and perhaps a 'circle' of allies can be cast over the internet just as easily as they can be cast by a physical circle. Further considering Warren was good enough to make a robot that could confuse Willow when she was homing in on his soul, Professor Walsh made a Frankenstein monster so powerful that it was able to IGNORE a world altering spell I think they may have never mentioned the term Technopagan again because they weren't really clear on why Willow tapping into the internet didn't qualify.

** It seems to be someone who practices magic but isn't strong enough on their own to be a full witch so they form spell casting circles online. So they perform spells over the net instead of in person.
