Punch's Buffy The Vampire Slayer Page was a Buffy-centric fanfiction archive and fan resource website on GeoCities. It's documented here as part of the OTW's GeoCities Rescue Project.

As of October 2000, the page had 158 Buffy/Angel fanworks (mostly fic but some poems) by 75 authors and the guestbook had 250 signatures. The fanfiction archive had a request on it for someone to take over maintaining the archive, as Punch no longer had the time to maintain the archive.

Although Punch appears to have shipped Buffy/Angel, given the name of the fanfiction archive, the site also had a banner on it reading, "I Support the Buffy/Riley Romance"

Cast

Bios of Sarah Michelle Gellar, David Boreanaz, Nicholas Brendon, Alyson Hannigan, James Marsters, Seth Green, Anthony Stewart Head, Charisma Carpenter, Emma Caulfield, and Marc Blucas from the official Buffy The Vampire Slayer site.

Angel's Page

Titled "Angel, Angel and more Angel" when you click through to the page. It had information on both Angel and David Boreanaz, including a spoiler warning for two season two episodes, information on the claddagh ring that Angel gave Buffy in season two, and a brief summary of Angel's character arc from season one and two. About Angel losing his soul, the page said,

I know some people are ready to kill because of Angel losing his soul, but I (could flame mail be kept at a minimum please?) for one am all for it. Angel, with the soul, was getting kind of bored, all he did was make out with Buffy; he had no impact on the plot at all. Now, he's getting some depth, he's suddenly very interesting. I have faith that he will get his soul back (before too many main characters are killed anyway) and eventually he and Buff will get back together.[1]
Links

A page of links to three of Punch's friends' pages and many Buffy-related fan sites. The sites were split up into pages about Buffy (the character and the show), Angel, Willow, Giles, and Xander.

Message Board

Seems to be notes from the site owner. There were two entries. One about FOX's actions against Buffy fansites:

There is anger in the air. 20th Century Fox has decided to start "controlling" Buffy sites on the web. Sites such as "Sounds of the Slayer" which had wonderful buffy voice clips, AleXander's hard worked on transcripts and others have been pulled from the web due to threats from FOX. This is an outrage. They didn't care about the sites in the beginning, it was good publicity for them and their shows. But now that the shows are excelling, FOX has decided to show everyone who's the boss. Please join the fight, go to The Buffy Bringers, to learn more.[2]

The other about the recent premiere of Angel the Series:

Have you been watching the new Buffy spinoff, Angel? I sure hope so because it's great! The new show which features David Boreanaz and Charisma Carpenter as the same characters that they played on buffy as well as Alexis Denisof who was Buffy and Faith replacement watcher Wesley. In this show, Angel has opened his own private investigations business and Cordelia is his *hee hee* secretary. Not that she can type, file or make coffee, but that seems to be beside the point. This a great new show, and FOX has already ordered more episodes. Now, I know there are a lot of you who are disappointed that Angel is no longer on Buffy but I believe this is a truly great change. On buffy, we never saw Angel all that much so even though we fell in love with him, we never really knew the character that well. In Angel, he gets the entire spotlight. We get to see who he is and that makes this show truly entertaining. Angel, the show, is wonderfully, darkly funny, so if you haven't seen an episode yet I suggest that you start. See Angel on FOX Saturdays at 10 pm.[2]
Spoilers

A list of spoilers for season four of Buffy. It included general info about casting and the plot, as well as details about the episodes "Doomed" (4.11) and "A New Man" (4.12).

Episode Guide

Graveyard

At the top, a note from Punch read:

Here is my graveyard, I saw that everyone else calls this page a cemetery, but I've always been different. In here I will give descriptions and pictures of the dead characters that were on the show. I am going to write down everything I know but if I miss anything, I'd appreciate it if you sent me an email to tell me.[3]
