In 2004, a man named Frank Warren started a community art project called "PostSecret". He asked people to anonymously send in postcards that they decorated and used to portray a secret they'd never told anyone before. The response was both overwhelming and beautiful. Four books containing these postcards have been published and there's a website that's updated every week with new ones. People send in secrets ranging from shocking to hilarious to heartbreaking, and every one of them is a work of art. One of the coolest things about these cards is that you don't have to know the whole story to appreciate the secret, and you can relate to pretty much all of them on some level.
You can find the website here
The challenge is this: What if PostSecret existed in the Buffy!verse? What secrets would the characters have sent in?
Base your postcards on canon BtVS and AtS or on your favorite stories on this site. The only rule, as with the original PostSecret, is that what you post was at some point
a secret that a character had never told anyone. It can be a secret that's spelled out in the original text or something inferred, or even something that's never really mentioned at all as long as it fits into the story. You can be as simple or elaborate as you like, as vague or specific, and you can reveal the identity of the sender IF and however you want to. Make sure you give credit to the stories and authors you reference!
SPOILER WARNING: Spoilers are going to be pretty much unavoidable. Because of the format, they'll probably be pretty vague, but if you've got a big honkin' Deathly Hallows spoiler or whatever on your card, you should probably include a spoiler warning in the chapter heading.

Have fun! And a quick warning- these things are HIGHLY ADDICTIVE (either that, or i have a very addictive personality. I suspect it might be a little of both, really). I can't wait to see what everybody comes up with!
