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.

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...)
