Fuffy Fanart by Marasatilu (2018)

Buffy/Faith is a popular femslash pairing in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer fandom between slayers Buffy Summers and Faith. It is sometimes smooshed into 'Fuffy'.

With many fans headcanoning Faith as bisexual or a lesbian, and some fans feeling that the (romantic) relationship between the two approached canon, Faith's appearance on the show is credited with giving rise to an increase of femslash in Buffy fandom. The tumultuous canon relationship between the two gave fans plenty of material for angst and darkfic, as well as canon divergent AUs and missing scenes exploring alternate possibilities.

Some fans felt the relationship between the two in canon approached textual, and many, though not all, fans considered Faith to be bisexual or even lesbian. Until the canonical Willow/Tara relationship came along, Buffy/Faith was the most popular femslash ship on the show, and it remains the most popular femslash pairing for both Buffy & Faith.

Fanlore's redesigned logo, designed by Amyl

Fanlore is updating its logo! After much behind-the-scenes designing, proposing, voting, and refining on the part of our volunteers, we're excited to present our new look.

The new logo, designed by Fanlore graphic designer Amyl, brings us thematically in line with the rest of the OTW's red logos and includes the imagery of the book and magnifying glass to represent Fanlore's mission of examining and preserving fannish history.

We will greatly miss our old logo, which served us extremely well for 12 years - but it's immortalised on our Fanlore page about Fanlore! And if you want to revisit the old logo in its original setting, check out this 2008 version of the Fanlore homepage saved on the Wayback machine - we've come so far since then!
