favorite character meme - [1/5] episodes - Prophecy Girl"You tried. It was noble of you. You heard the prophecy that I was about to break free and you came to stop me. But prophecies are tricky creatures. They don’t tell you everything. You’re the one that sets me free. If you hadn’t come, I couldn’t go. Think about that."
favorite character meme - [6/6] quotes
"I’m beyond tired. I’m beyond scared. I’m standing on the mouth of hell and it is gonna swallow me whole. And it’ll choke on me. We’re not ready? They’re not ready. They think we’re gonna wait for the end to come, like we always do. I’m done waiting. They want an apocalypse? Well, we’ll give ‘em one. Anyone else who wants to run, do it now, ‘cause we just became an army. We just declared war. From now on we won’t just face our worst fears, we will seek them out. We will find them and cut out their hearts one by one until the First shows itself for what it really is. And I’ll kill it myself. There is only one thing on this earth more powerful than evil, and that’s us. Any questions?"
So I just watched the “As You Were” episode, and I’ve come to a conclusion about their relationship so far. I don’t think Spike is in love with Buffy. The reason I’m bringing this up is because when I first watched it I thought he loved Buffy so much and that she should give him a chance. I’ve realized, instead, that he might care about her, maybe love her, but not in love. The reason I think this is because in that episode, Spike was still scheming and doing evil things behind Buffy’s back. If he was in love with her and truly ‘changed’, he would’ve given up his evil scheming. Also, he would always talk about how she is in the dark with him. When you’re in love, you want to raise the other person up and make them happy. Mainly, I just think that Spike loves Buffy as much as he can without a soul. I’ll update my opinion as I keep watching. Side note: this may be my unpopular opinion, but I’m still not a huge fan of Dawn. I know she’s a teen and has gone through a lot, but she just needs a chill pill sometimes and to also appreciate what she has.
#this show took some turns down some suspect alleys along the way but #as manifestos go the ‘shared power’ theme running through this scene TAKES SOME F*CKING BEATNG #a giant ‘screw you’ to the Batman-esque Saviour complex running though most dude-focussed superhero franchises #’it’s me and only me who must save the helpless!’ vs ‘HERE TAKE THIS - AND USE IT TO SAVE YOURSELF AND OTHERS’ #you don’t hide power and hoard power and swoop in to impose your power on others to ‘save’ them #you share it #you teach it #’are you ready to be strong?’ #[i’m not crying YOU’RE crying] (via harrietvane)
#THIS WAS THE CROWNING ACHIEVEMENT OF ALL SEVEN SEASONS #THIS MOMENT RIGHT HERE #i fucking WAITED for my hogwarts letter #but when i saw this #i was like ‘fuck. I COULD BE A SLAYER’ #ugly empowered weeping
One of my favorite things is to go back and rewatch the first meetings of my favorite ships, cuz you get to be like “YEAH THAT’S THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE RIGHT THERE. YES THAT ONE. THE ONE YOU THINK YOU HATE RIGHT NOW.”
So I work at target now and one of my favorite things to do when I hear something in the next aisle fall is to drop what I’m doing and stand at the end of that aisle like so:
