WAIT WAIT jenny calendar on ats WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS HOW WOULD THAT FUNCTION I AM SO INTERESTED

I’M SO UPSET ALL THE TIME LIV. 

  • Forget that dude who mooned after Fred for like the whole show, imagine Jenny as the magic user of the bunch. She follows Angel to LA because it’s still her duty and she keeps an eye on him and is wary but also kind of invested and eventually ofc won over to him and his mission completely.
  • Jenny and Cordy bein BFF roomies need I say more.
  • Janna of the Kalderash actually giving us backstory on her clan?? They have all these abilities (lol I don’t trust AtS to treat anything Romani with respect but let’s pretend for a moment) and they’ve been tracking Angel but who were they before? What other missions do they have? Where are they now? They could have been another force of good/ambiguity to use Angel instead of the PTB and more…accessible I guess?? than them.
  • Also Jenny and Fred!! Jenny and Gunn!! These are dynamics I only dream of because Cordy is team mom but Jenny would have been team cool aunt and I can imagine her being a super geek with Fred but also really protective and more…understanding about her experiences? Like Jenny deals in some weird stuff and she would not be fazed by Pylean PTSD at all. And Jenny and Gunn OKAY I SHIP IT A LOT the two of them bein snarky at each other and kinda like much less invested than everyone else is until whoops they’re part of the team.
  • ETA: also i feel like the girls on ats are great with each other but also very much about hanging with the boys?? and that is the show’s fault but Jenny is the kind of lady who likes ladies a lot and takes care of them (even when they’re Willow) and that’s REALLY IMPORTANT for fred and cordy and harmony because they’re all girls kind of finding their places in the world and Jenny could have been their mentor when everything was a mess
  • Jenny is just so cool and rolls with the punches and cannot be bothered with ridiculous uptight dudes so like the perfect teammate for Angel (and I guess Wes if he sticks around though Lilah/Jenny would be 1000000x better than Wes/Lilah sry) and she’d be their early Kate Lockley but with an actual arc that goes through the whole show [without being fridged in the name of motherhood pls] [oh god why would i ever wish ats on a woman] [goodbye]
