tonight I can write the saddest lines
10 years after the show is off the air (yeah let that shit roll over in your mind) and I am still debating Spuffy V Bangel. This is a debate that existed before people knew what OTPs were and really , imho, it’s the most hotly debated OTP argument of all time.
And I….still don’t know where I lie.
I like them both
And I know people will get into the rape thing
And the murdering thing
And all the things
But at the core of it Both Spike and Angel love Buffy
But which of them is her true match?
Can’t she have both?
You can’t ignore the ugly side of their relationships, but I think that’s why they’re so enduring. They’re complicated and painful and beautiful and real and THAT is why people are still arguing about this a decade later.
I completely agree. It’s the ugly side of their beautiful relationships that keeps people talking. Neither of them are perfect and yet…they’re wonderful.
