this is just a quick ramble about that “just waiting for the mcelroy culture to go sour” post and like
im not going to sugar coat it, i would be dead right now if it werent for mcelroy content. its helped establish a routine for me and the fact that it’s consistent and always here every week at roughly the same times? works wonders for my friendless, depressed BPD ass like. i need something to look forward to because i hate every aspect of my irl life and like just let me enjoy this content without making me feel guilty about it???
this isnt to say the mcelroys are infallible godlike beings who can never be wrong–hell, i cant even listen to the old MBMBAMs–but like at least they’re trying?? theyre genuine people and theyre NICE and they listen to people and adjust their content to fit needs and to be more inclusive and understanding and like??? just let me have this
As much as I liked the reunion, is it bad that I was kind of annoyed about everyone praising Bangel? Like I don't have a problem with people liking bangel, but they only talk about spuffy as an unhealthy relationship and not about spike post-soul? I mean at the end of season 7, their relationship seemed a lot healthier than Buffy and Angel ever was. Plus in the comics right now, which is meant to be canon, Buffy and Spike are in a happy, healthy relationship. It just felt one-sided to me.
