ENOUGH WITH THE BUFFY HATE ALREADY!

*calms down*

The [livejournal.com profile] buffy_love comm is hosting the Buffy Love Month now - while I haven't been able to follow everything that's been posted (freaking RL), I've enjoyed most of the stuff I *have* read.

+Recs

Ice Capades by [livejournal.com profile] karabair Buffy, gen, post-Chosen Buffy in Boston, slaying and going to college and being Buffy. The Buffy-Hank interaction broke my heart.

"Please. It's a bullshit media studies seminar. Nobody does the reading." The girl who might be Iris pushes dark-framed glasses back on her nose. The gesture makes her look very serious, and Buffy wonders if she should invest in a pair. Maybe then professors would stop taking her for an easy target. And maybe you should change your name to Myrtle. And oh, yeah, stop falling asleep in class.

A More Excellent Sacrifice Buffy, Faith, post-Chosen Guh. Buffy and Faith in Rome. The Buffy/Faith dynamic is *perfect*.

As Buffy fell into step beside the other girl, and they wandered aimlessly through the Roman streets, Faith wondered, “Well, you’ve moved on. To Gianluca.” Only the way she said his name made it seem like he was a porn star, in contrast to the severity of tone Buffy was used to associating with the Immortal.

*happy sigh*

Dude, just how cool is Faith? She doesn't just sit – she lounges. The way she walks, the way she talks, the way she dances and *fights* -

Amanda really sums it up, doesn't she?

This is so cool. Buffy would never let us do this. You are so cool. This woman is so cool!

God I love this character.

The sister saw 'A Hole in the World' for the first time. Her reaction was, "Oh God". And then, "Not like that. It's not fair."

Even I teared up at "Why can't I stay?"

I love the LOTR-ish feel of the place that Angel and Spike visit. The bridge, the well - reminded me of Isengard, and the mines of Moria. And the grand music playing at the background. Even the person who guards the well looks like someone out of LOTR. It fits, of course. Illyria is one of the Old Ones, and Angel and Spike are heroes fighting against odds.

We also watched 'Lessons' - nope, still don't like Principal Wood. And Buffy does not look old enough to be Dawn's mother, so there.

I first watched this season alongside Angel S4 - no wonder I thought this Buffy show was kinda lame compared to Angel. *facepalm*

My cat is afraid of my cellphone's charger. Not just afraid, *terrified*. Cats are weird.

The Buffy S6 rewatch with Sister has been going surprisingly well so far, considering all the signs she's shown of becoming That Kind of Spike Fan. She was horrified with the forced resurrection/breaks out of her coffin thing and said that she felt very sorry for Buffy, which is always A Good Thing. We'll see what happens when the Buffy/Spike storyline develops a bit more, but right now she's way too traumatised by Giles' departure ("How can Giles LEAVE?") and the Willow storyline to pay much attention to anything else, lol!

Desperate Housewives continues to be the best show ever. Lice politics? Bwahahaha! And ohmygod [livejournal.com profile] jaybee65, how can people *not* write Edie/Susan? After the bonding over drinks and gossip? And the breaking into Paul's house? *flails*

Now seems to be a good time to do that 'five things you may not know about me' meme that had gotten so popular a while ago, so, without further ado:five things you may not know about me. and may not want to, for that matter. )

Am finally home. Just got in (after being stuck in the damn traffic for an hour or so with a very whiny cat and a very jittery father), unpacked (don't you just *hate* unpacking?), and am now (slowly) going through the flist and my e-mails. I wish my brain would work. *sigh*

On other news, how come no one told me that Boone/Shannon is canon? *dies* more tv: lost, buffy, desperate housewives )

I’ll be out of town for the next week or so, with very little internet access. So if I’m a bit late replying to e-mails, that’s why. *g*

Reading Jingo. How much do you love Sam Vimes? *squee*

I’ve been thinking of reading Discworld fic – after I’m done with the series, of course (at least the Vimes books); I think what I want to read most is gen. With some Vimes/Sybil and Carrot/Angua. I’ve heard Vimes/Vetinari is a popular pairing, but I’d rather read Vimes/Carrot – there’s enough interesting stuff between them in this book itself to make a good slash pairing. Lord Vetinari just doesn’t interest me much. Angua/Sybil could be a good pairing as well… even though they haven’t actually met (as far as I know) – I’m sure they would get along really well if they *did* meet…

I’d also read Vimes/Angua. Yes, I do heart their respective canon partners, but you know – they’re my favourite characters! It’s irresistible!

*

‘The Body’ has to be the scariest Buffy episode ever. Scary because it’s so *real*. The way Buffy panics, and babbles, and works on autopilot; the awkward silences; Xander being silent for once because wisecracks don’t help here; Willow’s obsession with her clothes and being ‘proper’, contrasting with Anya’s confusion and honest despair; Tara’s mute sympathy; Giles’ horror…

*

I love how Desperate Housewives keeps getting darker, without losing its humour. Yesterday, I *really* felt sorry for Gabrielle – which is saying something. And somehow, I can’t bring myself to hate Rex, because he, like Bree, demands a more complex reaction than that.
