when watching buffy i like to imagine the monks creating dawn and like researching what boy bands and tv shows were hot, buying endless tiger beats and posting them all over the monastery for information, fighting over whether dawn should be a fan of the backstreet boys or nsync, and like coming up with cute stories from her childhood to paste in for authenticity and someone will come up with a really good one and theyll all go “aww!!” and continue to glue pictures of justin timberlake on a vision board for information or read through the sunnydale middle school yearbooks to pick out dawn’s best friends (“i like this girl!! she looks nice.” “jesus gustavo do u want the key to be a huge megageek? she should be friends with chelsea b., she’s the HEAD CHEERLEADER”)
i assume that the Official Buffy Writers did not intend for this to be my main takeaway from the key storyline, but tbh it is
#Buffy the Vampire Slayer #and after all that they still didn’t make her the sort of person #who wouldn’t freak out when she found out her mind was artificially constructed #each tree is perfect but together they make the wrong kind of forest for its environment
Racebent Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Alexander Siddig as Rupert Giles
Yes, it’s terribly simple. The good guys are always stalwart and true, the bad guys are easily distinguished by their pointy horns or black hats, and, uh, we always defeat them and save the day. No one ever dies, and everybody lives happily ever after.
