Duly snaggled from this_years_me
As we have recently embarked on yet another re-watch of Buffy, I thought it would be a good time to do this meme. ( Collapse )Day #09: Favourite romance
Another really easy one:
My first ever het ship and in many ways still my favourite one.
They were just totally meant for one another; their love was beyond most romantic loves I've seen. And yet it was the ultimate doomed love because they couldn't be together in any true sense because of Angel losing his soul again - and yet had he not had a soul they'd never have fallen in love. In many ways they are the modern day version of Romeo and Juliet.
Everything about them just worked for me: the intensity; the passion; the love; the always thinking about one another; the deep caring; even the light & dark hair colours and the difference in heights added to making them such a wonderful (for me) couple. And Angel walking away from Buffy because he loved her so much *sniffles*
What Buffy had with Riley and with Spike was nothing compared to what she had with Angel.
Yes, it's a mushy pairing really - but so what, I love them *g*
And in my little world I'm convinced that Joss was intending to give them a happy ever after though, once Angel
had finished (until the suits called time on it early) because everything pointed to it. Big things and little things in Buffy
(and also a couple of times in Angel
) such as Angel asking Buffy if she's still his girl and Buffy saying 'always'; the cookie-dough conversation at the very end of the series and just all their interaction and as Willow said even when Angel was Angelus, Buffy was the only thing he thought about. And as TPTB said in Angel
they were 'stronger together than apart', plus Angel was owed a life by TPTB.
