So I'm back from the 3rd Vampire Ball and all the photos are now up on my website if you're interested.
James and Juliet were great together
Me and Dru, we're moving in.
First page of photos and brief note on the event starts here

Hey Lulurose - I know what you mean. The last few Starfury Conventions the group shots have been a little silly and quite fun where as this one has a pretty serious vibe. Perhaps James didn't want to mess around this time?
Yes, there are some where he's smiling. I was talking more about the group one. Of course, the two people on the right aren't really smiling from ear to ear, either. I imagine he was tired-perhaps he was feeling jet lag, or something.
The person who looks very sad and tired in photos when he is not being the focus of attention is Nick Brendon -
And on a non-James note, I would've LOVED to see Mariana and Juliet talk about Lorena and Dru together. I have a feeling those women, working together, would REALLY paint the town red! (I've met and conversed with both women.)
Lulu, I think Godric would have no problems with Spike, but would try to guide him, which is where he'd go wrong. Godric had 2,000 years to figure out how to control himself and his emotions, while Spike has not even had 200.
Most of the shots taken during the Q&A James is concentrating on the question/attendee Some of whom were very nervous and it was hard to understand them on occasions.
He did laugh/smile quite frequently - I just didn't capture them all. Also smiling without reason would be pretty strange. Plus he was probably a little tired...
I hope James contacts Joss - he said he would as the onus was on him (he felt) we'll see what happens.
Perhaps its more evidence that he's just tired of always having to be "on." Smiling is normally a spontaneous response, and when you're in the public eye you constantly have to smile so you can maintain your image as a nice person. At a certain point, though, having to "paste" on a smile can be emotionally tiring, IMO.
I still find myself chuckling at the juxtaposition there-"Spike" and "Godric." Spike would probably be Godric's worse nightmare, since he told Erik Northman that a vampire should be the master of his emotions, basically-and when you're Love's "B," you're a long way from mastering said emotion.
It would nice of there was someone who could facilitate a reconciliation between JM and Joss-someone they both respect, like Jane E.?
Re: James smiling, I've noticed more and more that he doesn't smile much in candid pics. I wish someone would ask him why that is. Maybe it's just him being shy?
Thank you so very much for sharing your photos and experience with us here at Buffytube -
DoubleDutchess - yes I know, I kind of thought it was a compliment but I guess James felt otherwise. It was when James was asked about Joss Shakespeare film, Much Ado and why James was not involved, that he offered this reason as an explanation. Either way it is such a shame and they need to get talking again.
Hey lulurose I just remembered about that 'boots' comment, sorry. From what I could get he seemed to think that the bugs/spaceship story arc were so literally out of this world whereas the short story of trying to get an new pair of boots without actually murdering anyone, he felt was so much more in character for Spike. Far more grounded.
I was very sad to hear about the Joss/James thing. I don't think Joss would have the time or may not really appreciate that 'they aren't talking' right now. And James was adamant that it was something he felt he should fix rather than Joss.
As for James not smiling in the photos I would suggest that this was the first event he has done for this organizer, who happens to be one of the biggest Convention runners in the UK for the whedonverse. It's taken all this time to get James (at a price the Con runner was prepared to pay) and James may have felt slightly apprehensive. Normally they do a silly pose for the group shot and perhaps James wasn't keen on that. Steve Himber was there so I don't think there were problems although James didn't do any of the evening events.
