20yrs ago, the show that would forever shape me began. I was 11 going on 12 & Buffy was everything.
As I entered my teen years, Buffy taught me how to be confident & self assured & that it was also ok to fail. I learned to beat bullies & mean girls with sharp wit, using my own confidence in myself & my abilities as a weapon.
I’ll never forget my best friend getting on the bus after the 1st episode aired & me asking “omg did you watch Buffy?”
And I’ll never forget watching later seasons with my dad, who fell in love with the show just as much as I did. Nor will I forget the bond it gave me & one of my uncles. I was gifted his collection of Russian Buffy stamps after he died recently.
There’s millions of ways that Buffy has touched my life over the last 20yrs & I am forever grateful to Joss Whedon & Sarah Michelle Gellar for it.
Hi! Can I request a fluffly one shot of akashi being a father with his wife reader? Like a day out with their toddler kid or smth? Thank you!
