Yeah, I don't think Tara's death is a great comparison, it's just the closest that BtVS has. But maybe it's still too different to be a helpful contrast.
I feel it OUGHT to be a better comparison than it is. *ponders* I guess the difference is that Tara died to push Willow over the edge, whereas Fred died so Amy Acker could do some different acting? And they couldn't save her...

I'm generally for stories that point out the problems with certain narratives by depicting them and then twisting them, but I'm not remembering AtS as having done that.
Depends on which bit you look at, but Buffy was subversive by its very nature, whereas Angel fell into every noir, 'Dark Hero' narrative you can think of. :)

We all have our shows like that. :)
So messed up. And brilliant for fic.
