Excellent Buffy article here:

How Season 6 of ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ destroyed the show — and built something better.

ETA: Meant to add this earlier, but I was on my tablet which is... fiddly. But the article struck me in much the same way that this quote does (which I'm sure you recognise from my sidebar):

"Season six [of Buffy] remains the highlight. You won't find a more skilled extended exploration of existential turmoil on the big or small screen. And I'm not talking "woe is me" teenage angst, but a genuine search for what it means to be human. It's Bergman for the masses."
Tim Porter, Paste Magazine


The article also contained a link to ‘Fleabag,’ ‘Jessica Jones,’ & the trainwreck heroine: Defined not by problems, but solutions, which made me realise how similar (in many ways) Buffy S6 and Fleabag are... Barely holding it together, but pretending nonetheless, even as they're melting down and engaging in horribly self-destructive behaviour and treating decent people abysmally. Hmmmm.

So, [personal profile] the_royal_anna wrote about Buffy's birthday.

It's a beautiful tribute (as you would expect) and you should go read it. <3

First of all, then a vid which isn't online anymore:

Memories by Sadique. (Her website is gone, so I uploaded it myself.) It is Buffy's speech in 'Prophecy Girl' set to the theme from The Gift and uses images from all seven seasons. Utterly, utterly gorgeous - this is my Buffy, both show and girl.

(NOTE: It's in .rm format, which you can convert here to a format that is better for you, if you don't have a Real Media player.)


Also SMG's post on Instagram


And then this article:

(Via Sueworld)

I wish I could think of what to say, and there are endless articles extolling Buffy's virtues (which are all good, but none quite reflect ME). I guess above all she gave me fandom, fic, meta, all you lot... ♥

ETA: Oh, and if anyone's curious, here is My Buffy History. :)

VIa [livejournal.com profile] sueworld2003:

If “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” Were Set In Britain.

Example:

44. Xander would have left school at 16 and done a carpentry apprenticeship.

45. He’d have his own white van.

46. And would go on at least one lads holiday to Magaluf.


(Agree with everything, pretty much, except #31, as no way would Willow have grown up on a council estate.)

That Welcome to the Hellmouth aired.

Via [livejournal.com profile] gillo, from The Metro:

18 reasons Buffy The Vampire Slayer was the best show on TV. ♥

It's safe to say that without Buffy, I wouldn't be here. Wouldn't know all you wonderful people. Wouldn't have discovered fandom and meta and fic and all the wonders and joys that have lit up my life since 2004.

Thank you Buffy.

My recent stuff. Not much, but it's multifandom! *g*

The Name of the Doctor meta: (it's not a ghost story, it's a love story).

AND BUFFY 'VERSE FIC!

Divided Destiny (chapter 1). Continuation of my 'Maybe Someday' verse, but should stand on its own. Basic premise: Spike, Angel and Illyria go on an epic quest to undo the power of W&H.

And just to stay with the Buffy theme, via my flist a 10th anniversary vid that serves to perfectly remind us why we love this how:

Made this little graphic for Mark Watches, and thought I might as well post it here too, because the juxtaposition is rather beautiful. (Apologies for aspect ratio fail, this is not my fault, and I couldn't be bothered to work out a way to fix it.)

Have an evening to myself, so decided to actually re-watch Fool For Love (something I haven't done since forever).

Flawless episode is still flawless, and his face. His face kills me.

OK, here's the thing: Mark likes complex, complicated, morally grey characters. He doesn't mind what they do, or how unlikeable they might be, as long as they make sense.

He flips out into ALL CAPSLOCKS when it comes to unexpected plot developments, but just look at his posts on Five by Five, Sanctuary and The Yoko Factor - careful and considered, and barely a capital letter in sight. No ranting against, say, Buffy (who's plenty unlikeable in Sanctuary), or Angel or Spike later on. He found TYF uncomfortable as hell, but admired how clever it was. (Also see his reviews of Torchwood: Children of Earth - thoughtful, appreciative, full of admiration.)

So here's my prediction: Fool For Love will happen, and a) He won't see it coming (because he's not very imaginative in that sense) and b) William the Bloody Awful Poet will hit him like a two ton truck and he'll never recover. Remember what we know: Mark was very badly bullied [for not being masculine enough/being gay], and I cannot imagine that he won't identify with Spike, esp considering Spike's continual outsider status. He already likes Spike for the snark etc, but knowing that a lot of it is a front, armour to protect himself/make him fit in, as well as the way he'll go on to, continually, lay his heart at Buffy's feet... ALL THE FEELS YOU GUYS! *g* ("You're beneath me" <- Mark is NOT prepared.)

How it'll play out over the long run I'm not sure, but I think he might just love S6.

From Mark Watches Buffy:

So I’m at this point in the show where people who haven’t watched it will ask if I like it, and then I just grab the sides of my face and start screeching about HOW YOU JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND and YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW GOOD IT IS and THERE ARE SOME OF THE MOST FUCKED UP PLOTS IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD ON THIS SHOW and then the other person is staring at me as if possums are pouring out of my mouth and then they are turning away and hey where are you going i am totally normal and rational come back

He just makes me smile. :)

( I am SO TIRED I CAN'T EVEN. This week. /o\ /o\ /o\ Not in a bad way, but... So tired.)
