Tuesday Geek Entry...
okay, Buffy fans all have an idea of who they want to see her end up with, since the series is coming to an end very soon, and it seems that a majority of them prefer her with either with Angel or Spike. now, since this is a fictional world, one cannot get really picky about how things work, but it occurs to me that "being with" a vampire would have more drawbacks than just "oops! he lost his soul again."
an undead person would be room temperature. skin, lips, and everything else. the inside of the mouth would maybe be slightly warmer, but since vampires don't actually breathe, you could argue it could just as easily be slightly colder. and other things would be as well.
may i take a moment here to say ew?
so anyway, i have always liked the idea of her with Giles. many people say ew to that, and i can see their point, because they have a narrow idea of how it looks for a middle-aged man to be with a young woman, even though that used to be considered a good thing all around (he had cash, she was fertile,) but these are the same people who like to see her snogging with the undead. so they are just not reasonable to begin with.
anyway, i just figure watcher/slayer, mentor/mentee (whatever,) friend/friend. they say she doesn't have a long life span. so why would age matter, of all things? it's not like she could be with anyone normal her own age.
which is worse, eye wrinkles, or 68 degree tongue?
besides, Angel and Spike are cool on their own. they're just annoying when they're with Buffy.
