so usually when people are like “every troye sivan song is an andreil song” i’m like “yes but they’re also not just andreil songs they work for other pairings too”

but like

this song is so andreil that it hurts, just look at these lyrics:

I woke up pissed off today,
And lately everyone feels fake
Somewhere, I lost a piece of me
Smoking cigarettes on balconies

But I can’t do this alone
Sometimes I just need a light
If I call you on the phone
Need you on the other side

So when your tears roll down your pillow like a river
I’ll be there for you
I’ll be there for you
When you’re screaming, but they only hear you whisper
I’ll be loud for you
But you gotta be there for me too 

…i’m deceased

My top 5, all time favorite Buffy episodes. 

Common themes:

  • Spike
  • Spuffy

20th Anniversary Buffy Birthweek: 5 Episodes 

Buffy Headcanon (set before the last episodes): 

As occasionally happens in large groups of females, the women of the Summers house get their cycles in sync one month, including the potentials. It’s absolute chaos, with Buffy getting increasingly scatterbrained, Willow stuck in bed with debilitating cramps, Dawn eating everything she can get her hands on, and Vi, usually a quiet and good-natured girl, becoming a total monster and snapping at anyone who dares defy her. With Anya, Faith, and the rest of the potential slayers showing varieties of symptoms, the house is becoming a chamber of misery and torment.

The males of the household have ranging reactions this phenomenon.

Giles is trying to be as helpful and supportive as he can, constantly making runs to pick up whatever the girls require. He tries to remain composed, but is in truth terribly flustered by the subject.

Robin Wood has cut back on his visits drastically, and only stops by infrequently to check in or share news. He isn’t too embarrassed by the ladies’ functions, but prefers to avoid the drama abundant in the house.

Xander is dazed and uncomfortable with the proceedings and tries to stay as much out of the way as possible, sometimes going as far as to hide in closets and small rooms.

Spike was the first one to realize what was happening, as a vampire, being able to detect blood.  He has barricaded the basement and is confining himself to it.

Strangely, Andrew is handling the situation best by far. He has taken it upon himself to act as a source of support and comfort to the ladies in their difficult time, listening to their problems and making sure they are well taken care of. He is often found handing out chocolate and sending Giles out for necessities ranging from iron supplements and heating pads to ice cream. He wasn’t knowledgable about ‘that time of month’ at first, but quickly googled it and found what he needed to know.

The Prom (BTVS 3.20)

This is part of my ongoing Buffy Project, where I write notes/meta for every episode in an attempt to better understand the characters and themes of the show. You can find the full list here. Gifs are not mine.

In the words of Daniel “Oz” Osbourne, once again the hellmouth puts the “special” in special occasion. Hellhounds, oh my!

The Prom was mostly about the break up. Buffy and Angel start the episode waking up from a post-slayage nap that lasted all night. Buffy mentions getting a drawer at his place (I guess her mom has given up on dictating what the Slayer can do–she doesn’t have office hours) and he gets uncomfortable. He later sees that her notebook has “Buffy and Angel Forever” written on it with hearts. The relationship is so strange. Buffy is appropriately young and he’s just…not. 

Joyce decides to confront Angel, and it’s this second speech that finally gets to him. 

Joyce: When it comes to you, Angel, Buffy’s not a slayer. She’s just like any other young woman in love. You’re all she can see of tomorrow. But I think we both know there’s gonna be some hard choices ahead. If she can’t make them, you’re going to have to. I know you care about her. I just hope you care enough.

I get that it was perhaps overstepping boundaries (and seriously uncool) for Joyce to talk to Buffy’s boyfriend. But Buffy is off to college soon and Joyce is, in her way, trying to send her off to the best life possible. And she is a little young to have such a difficult, stressful relationship. 

Angel dreams that he and Buffy get married. He steps into the sunlight, unfazed, but she burns. It symbolizes his feelings about them: it makes his life better but hers worse.
