Reality Subtext - Buffy the Vampire Slayer
When Angel breaks up with Buffy in the third season, the tears are real. Sarah Michelle Gellar, who considers Angel and Buffy soulmates, apparently cried for so long that the set had to be shut down briefly.
- Similarly, in the episode of Angel where Angel becomes human and he and Buffy have 24 hours of perfect bliss before he voluntarily gives it all up, Gellar was so distraught during filming that viewers can actually hear actor David Boreanaz consoling Sarah by name rather than Angel comforting Buffy. She even asked Joss Whedon to rewrite the scene.
Haha I have the logo for Angel on my sidebar and it’s listed as one of the things I like so yes! I know it.
My het OTP: If you don’t count Angel/Buffy, then… Wesley/Fred. Or maybe even Angel/Darla.
My slash OTP: Spike/Angel
My femslash OTP: Fred/Willow. ALWAYS.
My endgame OTP: I guess I don’t really have anything I feel strongly enough to put into this category haha.
My original OTP: Angel/brooding. I was still not over Angel/Buffy at the beginning, I guess haha.
My crack OTP: Darla/Angelus/Drusilla/Spike (in flashbacks). I guess that’s pretty crack-y.
My guilty pleasure OTP: ^
My anti-OTP: Connor/Cordelia… pardon me while I puke everywhere. I wasn’t a big fan of Angel/Cordelia either, but I wasn’t vehemently against it.
I actually like Spike a lot (most of the time), but I can’t stand Spuffy. I expected to like it because everyone else seemed to but like… She was pretty much using him and she never cared about him like he cared about her. Plus I guess I was still hung up on Buffy and Angel.
