<p>
This is a parody of the telvision series
<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buffy_the_Vampire_Slayer_%28TV_series%29">Buffy the Vampire Slayer</a>, while referencing other pieces of popular culture
and references, and has many ties ties to my other screenplay,
<a href="$(ROOT)/humour/Star-Trek/We-the-Living-Dead/">Star Trek: “We, the
Living Dead”</a>. It’s far-fetched, but, on the other hand, conveys some
serious messages and insights.
</p>

<p>
Hope you enjoy it!

Well, since this work is a parody of <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buffy_the_Vampire_Slayer"><i>Buffy the Vampire Slayer</i></a> (written by
<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joss_Whedon">Joss
Whedon</a>), and contains characters from there,
I am theoretically protected by the Copyright’s
<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fair_use#Fair_use_and_parody">“right of
parody”</a> as part of the ”Fair Use” provision. There are other parodies of
Buffy’s works online and possibly offline, and no one was sued yet.
</p>

<p>
This work also uses other characters and concepts, from other copyrighted, and
already Public Domain works.
</p>

<p>
All the text in <i>Selina Mandrake - The Slayer</i> is original, and as far as
I’m concerned can be used under the terms of
<a rel="license" href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/">the Creative Commons

your option any later version</a>, but like I said, the situation is
more complicated than that.
</p>

<p>
I’m putting it here on this site in hope it will amuse or inspire
people, and also because it may encourage people to watch some episodes of
<i>Buffy the Vampire Slayer</i>, or of <i>Star Trek: The Next Generation</i> or
<i>Star Trek: Deep Space 9</i>, learn about Jewish culture and some <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ancient_Near_East">Near East history</a>,
read Dumas’
<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Three_Musketeers"><i>The Three
Musketeers</i></a>, etc. etc. all of which I can highly recommended. I’m not
charging people any money to download, build, or view the works, but I
have some web commercials which I’m making some small money from, and which
I hope are acceptable to the copyright holders. Please don’t sue me.

<a href="http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/The_Muppets_%282011%29"><i>The Muppets (2011)</i> film</a>
- I saw this film in the cinema and was impressed by its take on a brutal
honesty criticism of various 2010s culture, as seen by the apparently more old
fashioned (but still funny as ever) muppets. I eventually decided to adopt a
similar approach in writing <i>Selina</i>, both as a criticism of some
of our contemporary culture, and more importantly as a way to honestly convey
my farfetched imaginary world (induced by a long period of
<a href="$(ROOT)/philosophy/psychology/hypomanias/">hypomanias and manias</a>)
into this screenplay.
