"Curse, What Curse?" is a subgenre of fanworks in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel fandoms, in which Angel's curse is ignored, glossed over, or summarily disposed of.   Often the result is a PWP.
While the exact origin of this term is unknown, it appears B/A writers were using it as early as 2000.
This trope was often known by its acronym CWC. Fans have also applied that same acronym to a different type of denialfic. Recently CWC has been used to mean, Canon, What Canon?. The acronym CWC also predates Buffy fandom and had previously meant, Continuity, What Continuity?.
