buffy & willow per season: season 3

Willow: No. (hands Buffy a letter) I’m not going anywhere.
Buffy: UC Sunnydale?
Willow: I will be matriculating with Class of 2003.
Buffy: Are you serious?
Willow: Say, isn’t that where you’re going?
Buffy hugs her and they tumble onto the ground.
Buffy: I kind of love you.

- Two adults, acting like adults, and having an actual adult conversation? On Disney Channel? You don’t see that often. But I like that they’re delving into their history a bit.

- Cyrus hugging Buffy was so cute. That little dork just can’t get it right, but I don’t think we’d have him any other way :P

- Andi creeping on Jonah’s social media stuff is pretty relatable, hahah.

Buffy learning about her death prophecy.
(Prophecy Girl)

Knowing Buffy’s life will be so horrible past this point that she develops a death wish is what makes this moment really sting.

But let’s forget about what we know of Buffy’s future for a while. 

Think of her life at this point. She’s basically a child with a terminal illness. What short life she has left has been decided for her and set in stone. She is the chosen one. She knows she will die young, she knows she’ll never grow old, possibly never grow up.

If she survives that long, if she by some miraculous way manage to get to an age where life mile stones are possible, like graduating college, landing a great job, having kids etc. She wont be able to actually live and enjoy it. Her number 1 priority will always have to be slaying.

This is why Buffy is so obsessed with everything normal in her teen years. She wants normal so badly cause she knows it’s only temporary. Normal will never last. Normal is one of those things that she sees all around her, being enjoyed by friends and loved ones, but it’s not for her. 

She wants to taste it as much as possible, for as long as possible. The longing for what it’s like to not have the weight of the world on your shoulders.

In Prophecy Girl she knows all this. And she haven’t had enough time to taste normal. The burden of slaying hasn’t taken over her will to live yet. 

Yet.

… “Giles, I’m sixteen years old. I don’t wanna die.”
