I was watching a shitload of angsty Faith/Fuffy vids last night on Youtube … *takes a moment to cry for Faith* and I realized something over Faith and Buffy. I guess I’ve always known it, but I’ve never really stopped to let it sink in.
- Okay. Let me get this straight, people. My favorite…
No, I’m pretty sure it was when Faith attempted to murder Angel in Revelations—you know, when she took the side of a Watcher she knew for about 10 minutes over Buffy.
They make up in Amends, great. Get the nice sister-slayer vibe going. Then Faith kills the assistant, albeit accidentally. Buffy feels guilty, so does Faith, but Faith hides it under bravado. Threatens Buffy that she’ll go down with her if she tells. Then Faith tells Giles that Buffy did it. Then Wesley gets all uppity and tells the Council, against the wishes of some others. Then she goes evil, kills people and tries to end the world. She *could* have had friends, as Willow tells her, and she spit in their faces again and again.
Faith thought being the Slayer gave her a license to dictate to the world. She didn’t have much? So get a job or go to school—oh, wait, she was too cool for that. Buffy got a job. Cordy got a job. You know, the Diva Bitches? So she had absentee and drunk parents. So did Xander. So did Tara. So did Amy and the majority of characters in every Joss Whedon show.
My advice, quit watching fanvids which are edited to portray things a certain way and watch the show.
