#remember that time a teen girl had sex on a show and it crashed and burned but her father figure was like ‘i think you made a good call’#like legitimately ‘based on the evidence- hitting that was 100% understandable and i support you’#oh - oh you were expecting an ‘i told you so’ or some kind of slut-shaming#LET ME INTRODUCE YOU TO RUPERT F*CKING GILES
“I designed Buffy to be an icon, to be an emotional experience, to be loved in a way that other shows can’t be loved. Because it’s about adolescence, which is the most important thing people go through in their development, becoming an adult. And it mythologizes it in such a way, such a romantic way-it basically says, ‘Everybody who made it through adolescence is a hero.’ And I think that’s very personal, that people get something from that that’s very real.” (x)

↳ 1/6 “I’m beyond tired. I’m beyond scared.”
#what I love about this isn’t that she hits him #or that she catches him off guard and manages to defend herself or any of that #what I really love about this is that it would be so easy #to play this scene as funny #because we know that Buffy has inhuman strength and that this guy’s gonna get his butt handed to him #and that could be funny #and completely ruin the seriousness of the fact that he’s trying to rape her #he clearly doesn’t see it that way #but obviously from his actions he’s not overly concerned with what she wants so #but anyway if you look at her face in the last one #that isn’t a triumphant ‘haha you thought I was a weak girl when really I can beat you up’#that’s a ‘you sicken me because if it were anyone else with you in this car what would you have done to her?’ #and because it’s Buffy #who’s used to defending herself against much stronger people #of course she’s able to fight back #but really #if it had been anyone else #even someone like Cordelia#how would that have turned out? #and that’s the expression I read on her face here #she’s looking at him and thinking about what he would have done to some other girl #and I just #love this show #okay #strong like an amazon
