Sometimes I don’t think about BtVS and then suddenly boom it hits me I realize how stupidly and madly I am in love with Buffy and how stupidly happy I feel watching the credits and headbanging to the intro and reading the names of my favorite cast and thinking about these incredibly real characters and how they make me feel and how nothing and no one can ever take that away like gosh fucking damn
I feel you. Fandom hug, pass it on
BUFFY: “From now on, every girl in the world who might be a slayer, will be a slayer. Every girl who could have the power, will have the power. Can stand up, will stand up. Slayers. Every one of us. Make your choice. Are you ready to be strong?”
“I’ve been alive a lot longer than you, and dead a lot longer than that. I’ve seen things you couldn’t imagine, and done things I’d prefer you didn’t. I don’t exactly have a reputation for being a thinker; I follow my blood, which doesn’t exactly run in the direction of my brain. So I make a lot of mistakes. A lot of wrong bloody calls. A hundred plus years, and there’s only one thing I’ve ever been sure of; you. Hey, look at me. I’m not asking you for anything. When I say I love you, it’s not because I want you, or because I can’t have you - it has nothing to do with me. I love what you are, what you do, how you try. I’ve seen your kindness, and your strength. I’ve seen the best and worst of you and I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are. You’re a hell of a woman. You’re the one, Buffy.”
XANDER: “I’ve been through more battles with Buffy than you all can ever imagine. She’s stopped everything that’s ever come up against her. She’s laid down her life, literally, to protect the people around her. This girl has died two times, and she’s still standing. You’re scared? That’s smart. You got questions? You should. But you doubt her motives, you think Buffy’s all about the kill, then you take the little bus to battle. I’ve seen her heart, and this time not literally. And I’m telling you, right now, she cares more about your lives than you will ever know. You gotta trust her. She’s earned it.”
My favourite quotes from this episode. (btw I cried. typical. DAY IN THE LIFE.)
DON’T HOG THE COVERS
I can’t even. fangirling so hard rn.
tbh I’m really glad this post is taking over my dash. more ppl need to have this concept on their radar… if I had a quarter for every time I had to listen to some brogressive or manarchist or Feminist talk about how to steal groceries or whatever while throwing the low-wage workers held responsible for product loss under the bus and straight up saying they “didn’t care” bc “punishing corporations” and “refusing to pay for resources” that they COULD pay for, in order to make a point, was more important to them than low wage workers who are collateral damage.
"when i was growing up people didn’t do that!"
housemate’s bikes got stolen while I was in. then landlord loses it. I didn’t know that the bikes got stolen because they were outside the house. I dunno how to deal so I’m hiding from a very angry, just-moments-ago-screamy person.
