psst hey you! yes you reading this! you're wonderful and important and I hope you're well! ♥♥♥♥♥♥
I'm pretty new to tumblr and I just found your blog!! IT'S AMAZING (I needed to use capitals to just point this out) the way Giles just pops up and down in the corner ;) I saw that you said you watched Buffy from a really young age which I find many people didn't (I watched it from around the same age as you). Have you ever thought of doing like a meet up for Buffy fans? I recently went to one for this show called Orphan Black and a Buffy one would just be out of this world to go to ;) <3
(thank you! gosh people are being nice today :))
i can’t take credit for pop up giles though! if you click him it takes you to the blog that made him :)
i’ve never though about doing a meetup (cos let’s face it if i organised one nobody would show up! also i’m in scotland so it’s not the most convenient place for a meetup!)
but conventions are a great way to meet up with fellow buffy fans! (In the UK) I went to Hallowhedon last year with some friends and then met some new people as well! and theres another one that i’ve never been to called vampire ball and then a couple of weeks ago i was at london comic con which had a few whedon guests and i saw a few people that i met at hallowhedon, so I know cons aren’t possible in many many places but that’s how i cope! hahaha
tumblr can be a virtual meet up so you know my ask (and i’m sure everyone else’s ask) is always open if you feel the urge to scream about buffy :))
i feel like btvs is kind of underrated, like the way they used monsters and demons as metaphors for stuff that happens irl was so smart and it was pretty much the first show to do that and it could be a comedy and a horror and a drama all in one episode and it just makes me sad when people dismiss it as just another supernatural high school drama cause i feel like it was a lot more than that. okay i'm gonna stop ranting now. also i love ur blog so much :)
yeah! i feel like it flew under the radar a bit for many many people when it was airing and it deserved to be a MASSIVE hit
but then when i stand back and think about the show today i am so so proud of it because it’s not just another supernatural high school drama, it is the supernatural high school drama and i think that so many showsand movies owe their existence to buffy in one way or another even if they dont realise it.
It showed the world what was possible for a teen supernatural show to achieve in terms of meaningful storytelling and complex plots and characters
The thing that i wish i could change though is that those who havent watched the show don’t realise just how game changing it was or that there are so many sides to it.
i cannot stress enough how it isn’t just a show about a girl who slays vampires. i’ve been watching it since i was about 6 and there is no denying that the show had a large part in shaping the person that i am and how i view the world and i am so grateful for the many many life lessons that the show has taught me and the incredible characters that have been so important to me for so long
but the thing that makes me the most proud (but also slightly irritated at a lot of other shows!) is the fact that buffy (maybe excluding the 90s fashion and world saving floppy disks) still feels relevant, it doesnt feel dated and i would even go as far to say that for me it still feels ahead of its time in many ways.
Also, i am so happy about the fact that more and more people are discovering it, and it seems to actually be going through a nice little increase in popularity again, maybe because of Joss’ increased success or just the world finally waking up and realising what they have been missing out on!
In my eyes, it is a timeless show and you can guarantee i’ll be watching it when i’m old and grey!
(also thank :))
I was just watching ABC News and they were talking about “Binge” watching TV Shows on Netflix and they explained
"Binge watching is defined as watching at least 3 episodes in one day."
Awww, how cute
I’ve finished entire seasons in a day…
*tumblr collectively laughs*
I LOVE YOUR BLOG IT IS SO GOOD I LOVE THE GILES IN THE CORNER AND YOUR BUFFY SIDEBAR OH MY LORD! BUFFY IS MY FAVOURITE SERIES OF ALL TIME AND I JUST BOUGHT THE BOX SET! I CANNOT GET OVER HOW GOOD YOUR BLOG IS AHHHH
WOW WHAT A SWEET MESSAGE THANK YOU SO MUCH IM GONNA ANSWER IN THE SAME WAY YOU ASKED COS SHOUTING IS FUN AHHHHHHHH! :))
hey, i don't know if this is like a stupid question but i've been wondering this a lot. buffy died in season 1 and then kendra was called then kendra died in season 2 and faith was called but when buffy died in season 5 (again) a new slayer wasn't called. is that because once buffy died the first time she wasn't the one carrying on the line anymore or something? like a new slayer would only be called if faith died? (ur my fave buffy blog btw)
ahh i question i can actually answer! hahaha
you are correct :)
the active slayer line is technically buffy -> kendra -> faith and so since faith is alive, the slayer is technically still around and doesnt need replacing!
(also thank you my dear :))
