And sunnyd_lite wrote a drabble for me. Awwwwww. Thank you!
Anyway, mad props to ponderslife for lending me the S6 BtVS set. I know I could always go to the Buffy Dialogue Database to get what I needed, but I tend to think things through visually to a certain extent, so I had to see how actors played the lines.
So, I plopped myself on the couch and watched through Hell's Bells, Normal Again, Entropy, and Seeing Red because I needed to get some points exactly right for the next part.
I think I remember why I was throwing things at my television set through most of S6.
And I tend to write post-Chosen BtVS. What am I? Nuts?
Don't answer that.
( Why S6 Sunk All the Characters, the Art of Character-Bashing in Canon, 'Hell's Bells' Ranting, and Things You Catch the Second Time Around.Collapse )
I must've subconsciously realized all of the above because certainly that detail wasn't planned on my part. I doubt that the realization of above will have an overall impact on the story other than color (the plot points are already set). However, it does throw a new light on Anya's character and makes her future actions in the story make more sense to me.
Unh, thanks for sticking around to the end of this rant. Heh.
