when they appear: btvs s8, recurring + a couple issues of btvs s10 3 reasons why they’re ship-worthy:
satsu is canonically in love with buffy. buffy thinks that satsu is wonderful. and also hot. they sleep together. twice.
girls who slay together stay together (except they dont… but….)
literally the main reason they didn’t date is because all of buffy’s friends got on her case about…. not being gay…. ok
BUFFY/MELAKA FRAY (future slayer)
when they appear: btvs 8x16-8x19 (fray also has her own comic, so she’s got a whole fleshed-out backstory) 3 reasons why they’re ship-worthy:
similarities!! they both know what it’s like to be the One Girl In All the World. they’re both very impulsive and want to act as quickly as possible, but they’re not reckless. they both have strong personal morals and a strong desire to act for Good.
they both have a scythe. how cool is that. (spoiler: it’s the same one)
they steal a flying car together
when they appear: angel & faith s9-10, recurring 3 reasons why they’re ship-worthy:
parallels!!! nadira is like faith when she was younger: livin’ it up & always looking for a fight. she’s seen tragedy and it’s made it hard & angry. she’s driven by revenge, and faith tries to guide her away from that. she sees herself in nadira. she sees it as a personal failure when nadira doesn’t give up her quest for revenge. it’s heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time. they’re literally so excellent.
they have a good amount of screentime (pagetime?) so it’s a well-developed relationship!!!
faith lets nadira HUG HER
when they appear: angel & faith 10x02 (technically mai’s first appearance), 10x03 (here you learn her name), 10x06, 10x07, 10x08, 10x09, 10x10 3 5 reasons why they’re ship-worthy:
faith initially makes a bad first impression on mai, but they grow to be friends in the short time they get to spend together
mai teaches faith how to shoot better!!! faith teaches mai how to fight better!!!
they have an actual conversation about Feelings, like… faith trusts mai pretty quickly and actually opens up to her (before realizing she’s oversharing lmao (“okay, enough of the dear abby stuff”))
when people question faith’s leadership, mai sticks up for her!!
THEY WORK/FIGHT WELL TOGETHER. and then faith leaves to rejoin angel and they don’t even get a goodbye scene rip did the writers not realize how much potential these 2 had……
when they appear: btvs s8. 8x22 is Their issue, although the story is truly awful 3 reasons why they’re ship-worthy:
lbr i ship them in part because they’re both canonically gay. satsu refers to kennedy as “the other lesbian slayer”
THAT BEING SAID they work incredibly well together??
kennedy is SO IMPRESSED THAT SATSU STOLE A SUBMARINE sfkgjf
when they appear: earlier issues of angel & faith s10 (also the televised s7, of course) 3 reasons why they’re ship-worthy:
kennedy believes in faith? she knows that faith isn’t a natural team player, but she gives her second chances when they’re working together. she knows that faith can do well if she tries. idk, i appreciate when people bother to give faith the time of day
listen… i just really love fic where louis spends all his time when he’s on break at nick’s house. like when there’s that moment where louis starts calling it home and they both freak out a bit? that’s my shit right there
The other day I had a Skeleton Dance dream where Wander hadn’t had a birthday in a LONG time and kinda forgot what they were like? Hater was distraught about that. So Hater spent all morning before Wander woke up creating the perfect birthday party and then invited Sylvia and Peepers. While they were coming over Hater explained to Wander how birthdays work and what he was supposed to do. And then I woke up. Idk it was really cute!!! Like the Birthday boy reversed!
