I hate how they keep calling Willow a lesbian. Obviously with her dating of Oz and Xander she’s a bisexual, no?
I’ve never cried so much for a tv show as much as when Spike died…
I don’t care that Joss declared the comics as canon; as far as I’m concerned Buffy the Vampire Slayer ended after “Chosen”.
In respect to the “Spuffy” dislike, it’s something she had to go through. Like everything else on BtVS, it mirrored the reality of the lives we all go through. Not all relationships are meant to be loving and perfect; some of them are toxic and it’s what we learn in those relationships that allow us to move forth into something meaningful and true. Buffy needed that to grow, no matter how dark it was and it showed us that in the worst of times is when we find our true self-worth and power.
Never understood the treatment of Spike by Buffy and Scoobies. Really, it’s not reasonable. In Xander’s words, “you should never hurt the feelings of a brutal killer. You know, that’s actually some pretty good advice.” But then they proceed to do exactly that. Wouldn’t it have been safer for everyone involved to encourage him to do better?
I like Angel in his own show, but in BTVS I only ever liked him when he was evil - the rest of the time I wanted to punch him in the face.
Everyone seems to have such a strong love for the original four in Buffy. I love them too, but in the last season when by the end Willow, Xander, and Giles participated in the whole mutiny against Buffy in her own house before the huge finale, I lost a lot of respect for them. So in the end, Buffy was the only remaining original main character that I loved and think its sad that in that last season, I lost my original four.
This show helped me through my eating disorder. Whenever I felt like completely giving up, watching Buffy made me feel just a little bit better.
Every single time I watch Willow’s and Oz’s relationship on Buffy, I think that THIS time I won’t be able to accept Tara as Oz’s replacement. But every time I do.
My ex boyfriend loved Buffy, but my current boyfriend and fiancé of six years thinks the show’s totally lame and will often poke fun at it. It makes me miss my ex.
I’m still a little disappointed that Buffy didn’t graduate college.
I get annoyed with all the Bangel vs. Spuffy drama in this fandom. First of all Buffy is not defined by her boyfriend and secondly it’s irrelevant because nobody loved her more than Giles. The father, daughter bond that they have is by far the most beautiful relationship on the show.
remember to read the submission guidelines!
Entropy genuinely enrages me. Xander had no right to shout down Anya, or beat Spike. He abandoned her at the altar. How the show tries to paint him as the righteous wronged party (as he clearly sees himself as) is vomit inducing.
I think it’s extremely heteronormative and bothersome for people to try and define Willow’s sexuality on their own. The fact that she once dated boys does not counter the fact that she herself later identifies as a lesbian. It’s not like dating Oz was a black mark on her record that automatically nullified any future claims to the way she identifies herself and her sexuality.
