Lexi said it, not me.
As did Erica.
And then Liz made me some serious fanart.
I've also been inducted into Rolly's Spuffy Mafia.
And Caitlin would like to call me "Master".
NO BUFFY THAT IS NOT HOW MORTAL ENEMIES BEHAVE.

Thanks, anon! You are lovely. <3
You can message me un-anon and I’ll give it to you. :)
omg but whyyyy
he was actually wearing this yesterday and he was biting me on my neck and I tried to explain the paradox to him but he just laughed and went for the jugular instead
I guess it isn’t much different than him selling books of his reactions? It seems in bad taste to me as a fan, but he isn’t a fan- this is his business, and if people want to buy in to a whole lot of squeeing and no real content, that’s their prerogative.
Leaves a bad taste in my mouth, though. :/
Most definitely neither! I…don’t really understand the purpose of an ask like this to a blog like mine?
But yeah, we’ve never gotten this kind of Spuffy relationship before- one where they’re both so comfortable with each other as steady support, one with baggage not nearly as weighty as in S7, one where they’re friends before everything else. This is a Buffy unafraid of indicating that she cares strongly for Spike, but unwilling to delve into the romantic implications of it- and a Spike who’s finally reached the point where he can recognize that the best thing for him at the moment is indeed to be proactive instead of lurking in the background.
If it doesn’t seem original, it’s because it’s the kind of wish-fulfillment front-and-center arc that fanfiction writers have had the opportunity to write up until now, but the series never has. And I’m very, very glad that we’re finally getting that canonical, in-depth treatment of Spuffy that doesn’t turn it into something twisted and uncomfortable.
No, I think they definitely do have some value! And the one thing that I’d posit might be groundbreaking about Willow/Tara (and correct me if I’m wrong, Kelly) is that it’s the first lesbian kiss that isn’t in an episode centered completely around said lesbianism as a “very special episode” kind of presentation.
For me, personally, it’s the huge buildup by fandom that leaves me underwhelmed. Like…you’re going to a play and a bunch of your friends have been raving about how it’s amazing and the first ever to do x, y, and z, and you’re really, really excited…and then you watch it, and it’s good, but not nearly as good as you’ve been told and now you’re also watching with a level of disappointment at how your expectations have been so lowered.
omg yesyes she does look like a younger Joyce!
OR I encourage Spike and Buffy to go on a soup date
Mari/soup/Spuffy OT3 5eva~
I only saw one episode of Are You Afraid of the Dark that I can remember, actually (something with a werewolf?? I just remember some guy telling someone else to leave while he started to change
OMG WAS I WATCHING BUFFY?). But I shall post for the many of you who may have seen it!
