I know you’re in pain. I can’t imagine the pain you’re in. And I know you’re about to do something apocalyptically evil and stupid.

You want to be the villain? This is what they do. They kill their friends, because nothing matters to them anymore, right?

You can’t do it. You can’t, because underneath all that cold, you’re still you.

You’re Willow.

Chapter 25: House Full of Hostages

The sun was barely up, but the Scoobies were already nervously waiting in the living room while Buffy and Dean were busy with the vampire upstairs. “I’m not sure I’ve heard a worse idea,” said Willow, “and that includes the time Xander covered a pepperoni pizza with M&Ms.”

“I knew The Supremer would have its moment in the sun,” Xander replied.

“Spike killed a bunch of people, so Buffy and Dean brought him back to the house?” Dawn asked in disbelief.

“Willow’s back in the house,” said Anya.

“That’s different,” snapped Dawn. “Not like you can judge.”

“I’m just saying we’ve seen this from Buffy before,” Anya continued. “She’s not always with the group think of who to kill and who to not-kill. Frankly, I’m surprised Dean is going along with this lunacy. I thought he’d be more black and white and stabby about this. Plus, bonus he-man points for killing Buffy’s ex.”

“If Dean thought the best option was staking Spike, he would have done it,” said Sam, “but he thinks Spike’s more valuable alive at the moment.”

“It’s not just Spike.” Willow paced as she calculated the possible outcomes. “They think he’s being controlled by something. Okay, what if it pushes his big red murder buttons while he’s here? Or worse! What if it comes for him? I mean, it’s followed him from the school basement, to town, and to that old woman’s house. Who’s to say it won’t come here?”

“It already did,” Dawn said grimly.

“For being the head of the Kill The Bleached Bastard Club, you’ve been very quiet, Xander.”

Xander stood up and headed for the kitchen. “Anyone want some cereal? I hear it’s in peak season.”

First day of kindergarten. You cried because you broke the yellow crayon, and you were too afraid to tell anyone. You’ve come pretty far, ending the world, not a terrific notion. But the thing is? Yeah. I love you. I loved crayon-breaky Willow and I love scary veiny Willow.

  • [at the beach]
  • Simon: [watching Jace and Clary] I'm exhausted just looking at those two. All this splashing, and jumping, and running... shouldn't relaxing involve less exertion?
  • Izzy: Absolutely. Exertion can lead to sweatiness.
  • Magnus: Which can cause the pain and heartbreak of stinkiness. Better to just stay put.
  • Alec: I think we just put the finger on why we're the sidekicks.

I wish Buffy had been a lesbian or at least Bi, instead of Willow. My ultimate endgame ships are Buffy and Faith (before Faith became a killer) and Willow and Oz. I don’t ship Xander with anyone because I despise him (he was/is so completely cold, slut-shaming towards Buffy, ungrateful, rude as hell, inconsiderate etc, etc… and just overall a bad guy (especially towards all women). Yeah, there was that time that he stood by Buffy when she got to college and felt out of place, but that was the ONLY time that I even liked him a little bit.
