JOSS WHEDON YOU BITCH YOU’RE JUST SO—

Nnnnnghhhh. I finished Buffy the Vampire Slayer last night… and proceeded to make myself a soothing cup of sleepytime tea and put on “Stable Song” by Deathcab for Cutie. *sniffles* Dammit. Joss Whedon is an amazing genius, I love him, and I should see it coming when he pulls a classic Joss at the end of it all. (he’s a screenwriter/director in case you somehow managed to not know that). He does this thing where he’ll make his characters be amazing, like your best friends, and they come together to form a ragtag-y dysfunctional family… they’ll fall in beautiful, amazing love… they’ll be faced with the bleakest odds anyone could possibly concoct… and somehow, just barely, after pain so moving that you yourself can feel it just by watching, they make it through. They beat those odds. BUT HERE’S THE THING: that beautiful, unforgettable love? It is nearly always ruined, destroyed by the death of one half of that love. Willow and Tara didn’t get to enjoy the happy ending together… Xander and Anya… more in-fucking-portantly, SPIKE AND BUFFY. And it’s not just in that one thing either; Firefly? Yeah, so Kaylee and Simon make it, but WASH AND ZOE. MAL AND INARA… Doctor Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog? Sucks to be Penny, or worse yet Billy. Billy was worse off there. DAMMIT JOSS. I always love his characters, hate what they get put through, and… You know what? Fuck it. I’m gonna write idealistic endings. Where the love makes it. Somehow the unforgettable characters will pull through, somehow the created family will stay together. Nobody likes it when they come to the end, but the swells of sentimentality that comes with those final goodbyes won’t be coupled with the loss of BY FAR THE BEST DAMN CHARACTER OF THE WHOLE PIECE. Joss you shitter I love you so much. Indignant Bunny will now return to her slaving away at an idealistic ending to her fanfic… er, guess I’d better make up some insurmountable odds to surmount first, eh?

OVER AND OUT
(P.S. I wish Spike woulda looked like this through the whole show. Feast your eyes, kiddies, on the kind of vampire that wouldn't sparkle for all the blood in North America.)
