IS WHEDON A WORSE CANDIDATE FOR A BATGIRL MOVIE THAN AN AWFUL LOT OF FEMALE DIRECTORS?

YES

IS WHEDON STILL A FUCKTON BETTER AS A CANDIDATE FOR A BATGIRL MOVIE THAN FUCKING SNYDER, THE GUY DC HAS BEEN TRUSTING TO RUIN THE REST OF THEIR SUPERHERO CINEMATIC UNIVERSE SINCE THEY DECIDED THEY WANTED ONE?

ALSO YES

I know what it’s like. You think you matter, you think you’re a part of something, and you get dumped. It’s like the world’s still moving, but you’re stuck. You’re sinking a little deeper every day, and nobody even sees.

Okay so I realize that Angel and Buffy are over. But consider this.

• Cordelia Chase is constantly making Star Trek references

• Cordelia Chase quotes Star Wars more than once.

• She gets really excited when Oz shows up in L.A. OZ THE MASTER OF QUIET NERDOM

• She dated Xander Harris and yet did not want him in her room (even though they’d totally gotten sexy??)

• Before her parents’ money dried up, she was filthy rich

I put it to you that Cordelia “Super Popular Cheerleader” Chase has a collection of sci-fi memorabilia that could rival that of Jonathan, if not Andrew. She has the knowledge.
She has the money. She had to guard her bedroom of geekery from Xander, for fear of being outted to the rest of the Scooby Gang.

I put it to you that Cordelia Chase was a humongous closet dweeb. Prosecution rests. Thank you.

Buffy the Vampire slayer is so important. It’s showed countless girls (and boys) that everyone has potential, that anyone can be a hero, and that being a hero is not just about being strong - it’s about being vulnerable, and flawed, and human. It showed us that you’re never really done growing up. and that’s ok, because life is messy and complicated and the future rarely happens the way you think it will. It taught us that friendship is important, but so is self reliance, because when everything else gets stripped away you have to be ok with the person that’s left. It’s taught us that all forms of love are valid, it’s taught us that people can change, and (perhaps most importantly), it’s taught us the value of a well-timed pun. So let’s just all take a moment, 18 years after the day Buffy first premiered, to just be thankful for what this show has done for us.

Re-reading through Buffy Season 10 and getting hyped up on Spuffy feels. It actually genuinely baffles me how far Spike has developed as a character since he first showed up in Season 2. 

Like, what were the odds that this smarmy bloodthirsty asshat would actually one day become one of the most caring, trustworthy, and loyalest members of the Scooby gang? What were the odds that he’d one day prove himself to be a worthy equal to the friggin’ queen of all slayers? How on earth were any of us supposed to know that this great big jerk of a vamp would not only be crazy enough to actually go through torture to regain his soul, but actually become a real champion of the people?

Spike, man. Just…Spike
