Gifts for Whedonist
The Outsider by Valyssia for Whedonist
15 Nov 2008
Take Buffy Summers and cultivate the more egomaniacal tendencies she was displaying in Season Seven, then drop her into Season Eight. Because that only makes sense, right? We don’t see some big emotional growth spurt in between the seasons. Joss just says ‘you’re all better now’ and ‘poof’ like magic we have a more grounded character in Season Eight. I didn’t like that, so I made snarky, sulky, separatist, socially scary Buffy come to life and I gave her a toy…one that made sense to me.
