@sarolonde you majestic creature (appreciate this because it legit took me like an hour)
send me a tv series and I’ll tell you:
my all-time ultimate fave character: Buffy is obviously the best character ever written, Spike comes in a very close second
a character I didn’t used to like but now do: Andrew
a character I used to like but now don’t: Angel - and not that i don’t like him anymore but i used to love him and now i’ve realised he doesn’t have that much depth (comparative to other characters)
a character I’m indifferent about: Faith
a character who deserved better: all of them ??? but top of that very long list would be Tara
a ship I’ve never been able to get into: Buffy x Riley
a ship I’ve never been able to get over: Spuffy, it still keeps me awake at night
a cute, low-key ship: Faith x Wood
an unpopular ship but I still enjoyed it: Giles x Ms Summers - Idk if it was unpopular but Band Candy was a 10/10 episode
a ship that was totally wrong and never should have happened:
Xander x Willow
my favourite storyline/moment: I tried to narrow it down -
“Giles … I’m sixteen years old, I don’t want to die”.
the last 15/20 minutes of season 2 - “’No weapons… no friends… no hope. Take all that away and what’s left?’ ‘Me’.” Buffy willing to sacrifice Angel and not even questioning it despite how painful it was and how much she loved him
The Body was the most amazing episode in the most painful way - did you know that there was no music played what-so-ever during the entire episode
The season five finale - enough said
ONCE MORE WITH FEELING
The scene between Spike and Buffy in the church in season 7 - the script, acting and cinematography of the scene are exquisite and i cry every time
Buffy’s speech after she gets the shit kicked out of her by the uber-Vampire in season 7 - “
I’m beyond tired. I’m beyond scared. I’m standing on the mouth of hell and it is gonna swallow me whole. And it’ll choke on me.” and the next episode when she finally kills it “
I’m the thing that monsters have nightmares about.” Ohhhh, chills baby.
a storyline that never should have been written: Adam and the Initiative was a bit lack-lustre
my first thoughts on the show: (watching it as a 12-year-old) ‘this is a bit racy’ + ‘Angel’s hot’ … ‘Buffy’s hot’.
my thoughts now: Buffy is the most amazingly written show, Joss Wheadon is a genius who actually cares about his characters, which is something i have rarely seen in recent times.
I would need about 15,000 words to adequately express my thoughts and feelings about BTVS; Buffy Summers has always and will always be my role model, she taught me everything I know. IT IS THE BEST SHOW OF ALL TIME.
