she wanted to rUN AWAY WITH HIM
I JUS’T CAN’T~
Anonymous asked: So is Spike really over Buffy according to the comics?
I mean they’re saying that (ish) now but it’s just a narrative ploy so that Spuffy will happen because ~Buffy wants it
Kind of like every single fanfic written by Spike fen 5-10 years ago
~Summary: Spike runs off after Seeing Red and Buffy finally realizes how good she had it with him!! Tearful apologies for treating him so poorly!! Spike/OC and some Buffy bashing please r&r~
(I mean it can possibly be done well and handled nicely, except for the part where all the writers and staff are ~also talking about it like spike fen) (so we’ll see)
(i’m a p. positive person normally especially when it comes to my shows so um) (keep that in mind when you read this)
You know what’s really distasteful to me tho? The constant attitude of “Spike needs to ~man up~ and get over Buffy, Spike needs to stop trailing after her like a puppy dog and make lots of throwaway comments about it.”
Spike’s role since bs8 ended has been superhero’s sidekick-cum-love interest, where he’s been loyal support to Buffy and also v. much in love with her. Which is the role hundreds of excellent female characters have played for the male ~heroes~ of their series. But on Spike, ofc, it’s suddenly soo pathetic that he’s in love with Buffy and she doesn’t openly reciprocate!! Because man!! Man in charge!! Man not in charge is worth nothing!!
Not to mention the fact that it makes Spike into the old breed of Nice Guy, where it’s only okay to support Buffy if he’s either getting her love in the process or not seeking it at all. Perish the thought that a dude can have unresolved feelings for a lady without running off for ten issues to ~find himself~ because it’s so anti-everything in the world that the guy doesn’t get the girl~
sort of dawnie update (i don’t read this comic but??)
