oh god i made them look so crappy

MTVS Epic Rewatch #168

BTVS 6x16 Hell’s Bells

(aka the Xander-and-Anya-were-having-it-way-too-easy-this-season-and-it-was-high-time-they-got-their-lives-ruined episode)

Stray thoughts


WILLOW: Buffy, it’s hideous. Oh my god, Buffy. Look at its arms!
BUFFY: I know. But it’s my duty.

Why did Anya get them these awful dresses, though? That’s such a crappy cliché - the bride having awful bridesmaid dresses made because she’s the only one who can look beautiful at her wedding - and I hate that they had Anya do that. Also, notice that Buffy’s dress is slightly less awful, so I’m guessing Sarah pulled her weight to have it that way.

2) Yet another example of how people in Sunnydale are bound to believe anything in order to remain oblivious of the supernatural.

BUFFY: I just can’t believe everyone bought that story about Anya’s people being circus folk. Did you see the guy with the tentacles? What’s he supposed to be? Inky the Squid Boy?

3) Why did they want these people at their wedding, though? 

WILLOW: And Xander’s family. I haven’t seen them that bad since my bat mitzvah. Ugh, did you see how much they drank?
BUFFY: Kinda. Mr. Harris threw up in my purse

4) Of course, following Anya’s declaration of how that day was the happiest day of her life, we see the going-ons at the Harris’s household… and this is what we get a glimpse of…

  • His uncle Rory half-naked suggesting Xander should use Velcro in his cuffs.
  • His uncle Rory trying to make himself an Irish coffee (in the morning…) and then pretending to get electrocuted.
  • Xander’s father giving him a hard time because he’s not ready yet
  • Xander’s mom guilt-tripping him about her not getting to be in the pictures (why did she think that?)
  • Krelvin recalling how Xander’s father had compared him to his mother-in-law and then proceeded to hit him and insult his heritage
  • Xander’s father making fun of Anya’s whole family
  • Xander’s cousin Carol asking him to get her date with “Kevin” while wearing Xander’s cufflinks as earrings. 

I ask again, why did they want these people at their wedding? Except for Krelvin, he seemed like a cool dude.

The Loft




I wake up to an empty bed, in an empty room. It’s completelydark; I reach over to the lamp and turn it on. I find a note that says,

“Hope you slept well babygirl, we’re next door. Come see us when you wake up. x”

I set the note back down and go to the bathroom.

I take a quick shower and shave my legs; after I get out I brush my teeth while standing in the mirror with only a towel on.

What am I supposed to wear?

I look around the bathroom and see clothes with a note on top.

“You won’t be wearing these for long, but they will do. x”

I don’t know which boy wrote this note, but okay.

I take the note off and put on the matching bra and underwear from VS, the pair of high-waisted jean shorts, a large red flannel – probably Jack’s -, along with a pair of black and white vans that look like they were just bought.

I comb through my damp hair and look in the mirror; I have no make up on.

I feel like I haven’t worn make up in forever, oh well.

I leave the bathroom and walk out of the hotel room into the hallway.

I wonder how late it is?

I knock on both of the hotel rooms next to me, waiting for the boys to answer.

After a moment of standing out there, both doors open and all the boys decide to come to my room.

I go back to sit on my bed and Gilinsky comes to sit next to me.

“So how’d you sleep?” Cameron asks sitting on the foot of the bed.

“Good, I want to get out and do something,” I reply.

Most of the boys are sitting on the floor and the others are sitting on the other bed.

They all look at each other in silence,

“What?” I ask.

Gilinsky says loud enough for everyone to hear, “We’ve already made plans. By the way, when was the last time you checked your phone?”

I laugh, “I don’t even know where it is, I’ve been avoiding it. Why?”

Nash says from the floor, sitting up so I can see him, “You do realize that it’s your birthday the day after tomorrow, correct?”
I gasp, “Oh shit.”

I forget my own damn birthday, but they don’t.

Oh god, what are they planning.

The boys stand up, and walk to the door. I follow them as we walk to elevator and back down to the lobby area. As we walk out of the crappy hotel, I look at the clock on the wall.

Holy shit, it’s 1 a.m.  Where could we possibly going on?

We walk out the double doors and out to the parking lot.

I walk to my car and try to get in the driver’s side but Jack makes me go to the passenger side because he wanted to drive.

We all pull out of the parking lot and get on the road.

“Where are we going?”

“Patience, babygirl.”

I roll my eyes and look out the window.

- - - - - - - - - - - - -

20 minutes later-

After driving with loud music on, not knowing where we were all going, we finally turn into a road that is lit up with bright lights.

What could possible be open at one in the morning?
We finally come to a sign, which takes me a second to read considering I left my glasses at the loft-


They’re taking me to Disneyland.

I gasp and wiggle around in my seats looking at the lights as we pull in.

As soon as we all park, I get out of my car and meet up with the guys, basically jumping up and down with excitement.

“NO WAY! How did you guys do this? This is cra-“
Matt interrupts speaking for all the boys, “We know you’ve never been, so we made a few phone calls and they shut down the park for us. We have it to ourselves.”

I weep, “This is the best birthday present ev-“

“This isn’t your birthday present, this is because of what happened this morning. Your birthday will be much better than just going to Disneyland,” Shawn smirks at me.

What is he talking about?
“Guys, this is crazy,” I say shaking my head, even though this is the best thing that has happened in so long.

“Well what are we waiting for? Let’s go,” Aaron says outloud, walking towards the gates in the dark night.

I hear Nash and Cam say to each other,

“She’s so excited, aw.”

“I know, (Y/N) is so fucking adorable, I swear.”

How did I get so lucky with these boys?

We walk up to the security guards without saying anything, Gilinsky just nods.

As soon as we’re in the park, I see this huge rollercoaster and my eyes widen.

“C’mon, let’s go babe,” Matt comes over to me and leans down in front of me signaling for me to get on his back so he can carry me.

I step back a bit and run and jump onto him,

“This is the best night ever and it’s just starting!” I yell and all the guys laugh at me.

We go to the rollercoaster and Matt puts me down, Gilinsky sits next to me in the ride. The man that controls the ride starts it, and we getting pushed forward into a shaky and spinney ride.

- - - - - - - - - - - -

One hour later-

We’ve riden at least 20 rides and I heard my stomach growling.

“Are you hungry?” Nate asks standing next to me.

I nod yes, the guys change directions and we go to the cotton candy machine.

These workers are probably pissed because they have to stay afterhours.

It’s almost three a.m. and I hear a firework go off.

I turn around to look for the firework when I see at least ten go off at the same time, illuminating the night sky.

Colors flush the sky, astonishing me.

My jaw drops open as fire works go off in the shape of the words,

“Happy early birthday babygirl”

The words disappear after a moment passes of course.

I turn around once the fire works stop popping and look at all the guys smiling.

“Thank you guys so much, tonight has been beyond amazing. I can’t even begin to thank-“

“You deserve it. We know what you went through those months without us, we’re really sorry that we pushed you away,” Johnson says.

“Yeah, we just want you to know how much you mean to us,” Carter imputed.

I stand there, still shocked at the fact that they do all this for me.

“And this isn’t even your birthday present, babe. If you think this is amazing, you have a lot coming for ya,” Nash says.

“Nope, nope. There’s no way I’m letting you guys do anymore for me-“

“Hush, (Y/N). It’s already planned out, and there’s nothing you can do about it. Trust me, you’ll like it,” Gilinsky says coming towards me to put his arm around me, on my shoulder.

“Whatever, I’m too happy to argue anyways,” I say with a smile so big that my cheeks make my eyes squint a little.

We continue to ride other rides and rollercoaster; they each win me one stuffed animal and carry it for me.

I saw the characters walking around in their costumes and the boys took pictures of me with them and posted it on their social media.

I didn’t care about the fans, not tonight, tonight was just me and the boys, and it’s been too good to worry about hate.

After seeing the sun start to rise, that was our queue to leave before people started coming back to the park.

As I was leaving, holding icecream in my hands and a teddy bear that Sammy had won me, I walked to Sammy and Nate’s car.

“I wanna ride in you guys’ car this time. I feel like we haven’t spent any time together yet!”

They both nod and smirk at me while Nate opens the passenger door for me, letting me have shotgun.

“What are you guys smirking at me for?”

Sammy lets out a deep laugh, “You’ll get your time with us, believe me. You just won’t be ready for it.”

I swallow a lump in my throat and cough a little.

“Someone’s feeling sexual tonight, shit,” I laugh.

We all drive off as I’m finishing my ice cream. I turn on his music to blare through out the car; the bass is insane.

I roll down the sun roof of Sam’s car and ask the boys, “Can I?”

They both say at the same time, “Go for it, baby.”
I stand on the console between the two front seats and lift my body up out of the top of the sun roof.

I feel Nate hold on to my legs to make sure I don’t fall, feeling the wind of Sam speeding down the road.

My hair is flowing out of my face and I hear the music.

The guys in the other cars are laughing at me and smiling.

Matt’s in the car next to us and he rolls down the window after seeing me,

“Having fun up there, babe?”

“Shut up, Espinosa!” I giggle, enjoying how gorgeous the sunset is.

I feel so good right now, I feel like I’m actual living. I’m happy. I don’t feel depressed or anxious. I’m genuinely happy.

I lower myself back into the car and back into my seat with Nate’s help.

Letting out a breath, I say, ”That was so fucking fun.”

They laugh at me more as we arrive back to the loft.

Once we all get out of our cars and into the elevator, the boys start asking if I enjoyed my night.

“Are you fucking kidding? This might have been the best night of my life guys. I can’t even wrap my head around the concept of all that you guys do and continue to do for me,” I say holding my teddy bear.

I hear Johnson say to Gilinsky next to me, “She has no fucking idea, bro.”

I’m so curious as to what they have planned for my birthday.

It’s probably around 8 in the morning, and I’m tired again.

The house is spotless, of course.

The boys all walk up to my room, setting down all the stuffed animals.

After tucking me into bed and telling me goodnight, all boys but Gilinsky leave.

Gilinsky sits in bed next to me, getting under the covers.

“Alright, so here’s the deal. By the time you wake up, it’ll be late afternoon probably, because you need rest for what you’re about to be doing for your birthday. And when you wake up, come get me and I’ll help you pack. We’re leaving around 6 p.m.,” He points to a Victoria’s Secret bag on my dresser.
“That bag has a surprise for you, but you can’t open it until you get dressed tomorrow, you’ll need to wear what’s in the bag on the way there. Got it, babygirl?”

I normally hate surprises, but shit this is gonna be amazing, I can just tell.

“Got it babe.”

He nods, “Okay good. You need rest, trust me.”

“Why?” I asked Jack.

“Let’s just say that when you come back home, you’ll be sore.”

Oh shit.

I cough a little trying to release the tension as he laughs at me.

“We have a little game that we’ve prepared, it’ll be fun, don’t worry.”
He kisses my cheek and turns me over to lay on my stomach as he rubs my back, making me sleepy.

“Sing to me,” I tell Jack.

“Are you serious?”

I nod.

“Ugh, only for you, (Y/N).”

He starts singing Sunday Morning by Maroon 5, knowing that I still love that song.

His perfect voice fills my room as I fall asleep.

The last thing I hear him say is,

“Babygirl, you have no idea what you do to us.”
