Buffy.

BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER

My favorite female character: Faith Lehane
My favorite male character: Rupert Giles
My favorite book/season/etc: Season three. It was the first season I started watching and being introduced to the show, so I have a soft spot for it in general. But it was also the introduction to my favorite character, Faith. S3 was just so well structured, the overall arc and the season finale remains probably one of the best finales the show has ever had, imho.
My favorite episode: That's difficult, considering how many seasons and episodes there are. On the top of my head, "Surprise"/"Innocence" and "Faith, Hope, and Trick" are just a few of the many favorite episodes I have with BTVS.
My favorite cast member: Eliza Dushku.
My favorite ship: Buffy/Faith. But I also loved Buffy/Angel, too.
A character I’d die defending: Dawn Summers. I never understood the hate she got, as it seemed rather excessive to me. I, personally, identified a lot with Dawn and certain things she was going through so seeing her character getting unjustly attacked simply for being a typical teenager and younger sister just makes me so angry on her behalf and I will forever defend her.
A character I just can’t sympathize with: Xander Harris, Warren (obviously)
A character I grew to love: Cordelia Chase. I liked her character a lot while watching the show, but I came to really love and appreciate her character so much more over the years.
My anti otp: Spike/Buffy. I'll be honest, I liked the initial idea when it came about in the fifth season, but once they kinda became canon I despised it.

c: Season three. It was the first season I started watching and being introduced to the show, so I have a soft spot for it in general.

I'm with you on all counts, although I wouldn't call Faith a favorite character (even though I do like that character). In fact, since I see the rest of the series as almost a different show (not even in a "not my canon" way, I just feel Buffy changed completely in purpose once it stopped being High School as Hell), I see the season three finale as a series finale of sorts. It really was just so perfect. And I think season three was a brilliant season.

Dawn Summers. I never understood the hate she got, as it seemed rather excessive to me. I, personally, identified a lot with Dawn and certain things she was going through so seeing her character getting unjustly attacked simply for being a typical teenager and younger sister just makes me so angry on her behalf and I will forever defend her.

I never understood the Dawn hate either! I didn't love her backstory, and she wasn't a favorite character by any stretch, but she wasn't as bad as people made her out to be. And as kind of the youngest child (not of siblings, but in my family) I related to her in certain ways as well.


My anti otp: Spike/Buffy. I'll be honest, I liked the initial idea when it came about in the fifth season, but once they kinda became canon I despised it.


Yeah, same. It was actually an interesting idea, it just... didn't work for me as it was executed.

That is exactly how I feel, as well. It was a nice way of closing one chapter before opening the next one to continue the story. I especially loved the last bit in the finale when Oz makes the observation that they survived, not the battle but high school, which is something we can all relate to once we graduate school. And then the last shot was the Sunnydale yearbook. It was very well done.

Yeah, same. It was actually an interesting idea, it just... didn't work for me as it was executed.

And fandom didn't help much in that department, either. The shipping wars got too intense and it just further put me off.

So much yes, esp on Faith, Faith/Buffy, Giles, S3.

I liked the idea of Spike/Buffy at first too. To enjoy the pairing now, I have to headcanon that most of their canon relationship didn't happen.

I feel like if you like the pairing that's the only way to do it, because canon was sure a dumpster fire in regards to how all of that was executed.
