Welcome to the next installment of my Spotlight series, in which I chat with awesome Buffy fans and share their work and story with the BTVS community. Today, please give a warm welcome to Jill Robi, lifelong Buffy fan, and fan girl extraordinaire.
When reading through the following Q & A with Jill, you will find that she is the ultimate Buffy fan. She writes wonderfully crafted (and award winning!) fan fiction, has met and interviewed many Buffy cast members (with AWESOME pictures to prove it), writes original fiction, and still finds time to admin for Whedon World on Facebook and her very own entertainment website and Facebook page, Fangirl.
Frankly speaking, I have a lot of respect and admiration for what Jill does. As she discusses in one of the questions later on, being a full time fan girl is a lot of work, especially when you have to balance real life responsibilities. But when you have passion and drive, you can make it all happen. As a newer Buffy fan (I discovered it around 2012/13), it’s heartening for me to see that Jill has stayed a Buffy fan after all these years, and continues to find new ways to spread the Buffy love and draw inspiration from the show on a daily basis. Every day I become more and more convinced that this show will never die, and it’s because of great people like Jill that the fandom continues to grow and stay loyal to the Scooby Gang.
Coming up, I invite you to read the Q & A with me that Jill so graciously and thoroughly answered, and be sure to visit the links at the end to follow Jill on social media!
