This is an old message I saved from BAPS written by shipperxphile that describes exactly why I'm a Spike fan. It's a message that more than anything says why I'll protect Spike, why I get so obsessed with the guy and why I'll jump up to defend him when someone insults, attacks, ... him in any way.
I thought of it as something I wanted to say as a response to a B/A-ers
question in the comments of theantijoss's post
about writercon. I didn't since I don't troll.
(well not if I can help it)
But I still thought it might be interesting to post it here.
This btw is a post in response to the age old situation of how ME expects us to identify with Buffy, something that a lot of the viewers seem to disagree with, including this poster...
(I seem to be one of the rare people who did identify with Buffy, up to S6 at least, but that's just me, for the record, I edited a bit so all the 'I'm not Buffy' parts of the post are gone, mostly cause I don't entirely agree with those)( Collapse )
