I just want to take a minute to express my appreciation for whoever is running the Whedonesque social media accounts. They somehow posted pretty much exactly what I needed to see for the last couple of days.

These posts aren’t going to change the world, but they did bring me a little comfort and I know there are some other Buffy fans floating around here, so I thought I’d share them.

Their first post, 2AM on election day:

Post at 11 AM, hoping for the best:

Post at 11 PM—for anyone not familiar, this is from the end of the movie Cabin in the Woods. It is the end of the world.

At 2AM—we all need a hug:

Their feed just kind of mirrored my own roller coaster of emotions so well, and I really appreciated that.

Yesterday was for mourning, but today I’m ready to get my voice back.

So I’ll add my own reference to the series finale of Angel:

SPIKE: And in terms of a plan?
ANGEL: We fight.
SPIKE: Bit more specific?
ANGEL: Well, personally? I kind of wanna slay the dragon. Let’s go to work.

(I guess I should note I am not advocating any actual slaying? More of a metaphorical slaying. I think we find out in the comics Angel ends up kind of taming the dragon instead of slaying it anyway...)
