Hi guys! Who came up with even more prompts for the [ profile] hd_familyfest?

Exactly. Your girl Kiki, who should definetely STOP to get all mellow over fictional families (NEVER STOP). Guys, if you like family fics just as much as me, go there and leave a prompt. I can't wait to read aalllll the stories.

Stuff happened: I cut my hair again. Soon I will produce photographic evidence, I guess. This time around I'm not completely sure over the haircut because, surprisingly, I think it's too short on the back (It's still a bob, supposedly) I did such a GOOD, DIFFICULT job in keeping it growing and maybe I should have said to the hairdresser that I wanted to not regret my life choices. But alas, it happened and there's no point in crying over spilled milk. Also, more comfort for the Summer.

Since we're here,

Leave the pencil emoji --> ✏️ and I will write down an headcanon for the character/pairing of your choice.

Leave the fire emoji (🔥) if you want to enjoy an unpopular opinion over a character/plot/series of your choice. If you send me this 🎀 I will ask you.

Xander/Cordy: The main thing I wonder about is how far they went with making out/messing around sexually. In Phases, Cordy says, "We came here to do things I can never tell my father about because he still thinks I'm a... good girl." This implies more than making out. But Xander tells Faith later, "I've never been up with people before." Which seems to mean he never went beyond the making out stage with Cordy. My headcanon would would be that Cordy and Xander did get to the stage of some sexual touching, but not full-fledged sex. Xander responds nervously to Faith because he can tell she wants to go way beyond that, and comes across as both experienced and aggressive.

I think the degree to which I like them as a ship is unpopular. Along with Willow/Oz, they are my high school era OTP. They were young and stupid (especially Xander) and it didn't last, but there was obviously love between them. It would have been nice for one of them to guest star on the other show after S3. I would have liked to see later seasons Xander meet AtS Cordelia.

My unpopular opinion about Lilah/Wesley is that I couldn't get into it. I was really expecting to like it, just as I expected to like Spike's redemption story and Buffy/Spike. I enjoyed the late S3 stuff, but from the beginning of S4 onward they didn't do much for me. It's been awhile since I watched AtS, so I don't remember enough to have headcanons about them.

Willow/Oz is my favorite Willow ship, too. I think Willow/Tara is actually more interesting, but I never could get into Tara as a character. Amber Benson is amazing and she and Alyson Hannigan have mad chemistry, but Tara always seemed too good to be true. I couldn't connect with her. Willow always had an edge, even in her shy, geeky days. As far as I could tell, Tara's basically a saint. And the relationship was just too cutesy. By contrast, Oz may be a nice, laid-back guy, but he seemed more human, like someone you would actually meet in real life. I know some people think he's the geek girl's fantasy boyfriend, but he always felt very real to me. He had flaws, and his horrendous handling of the Veruca situation was in keeping with his previous characterization. I couldn't tell you what Tara's flaws are supposed to be.

I prefer BtVS to AtS, too. I think BtVS was more consistently good (oh, god, the first two thirds of AtS S3 are so appalling...). That said, I <3 <3 <3 Angel/Darla. My favorite Angel (the character) ship, hands down. But that's pretty much the only ship I go for. Fred and Cordelia's love lives were handled so horrendously. Really, almost everything about the two of them was handled horrendously.

My DEEPEST CONDOLENCES for the 40C weather ☠️☠️☠️

Where I'm going with this, you ask? Simple. Sexy naked Spike on Buffy's bed. Cat-like fussing Spike. Red, purple and burgundy nailpolish being finally used and appreciated. Pegging. ;)

No disagreement here, lol.

I remember when Buffy just ended and SUCH MANY were infuriated over the fact that she dared to smile after Spike died.

lmao, literally there is no group of shippers more pressed than old-school Buffy/Spike fandom. iirc, the logic was that she can't have really loved him unless she was prostrate with grief/ready to throw herself into the crater after him, rme. What a sad, narrow view of love.

Anyway, totally agreed on S6. What's interesting/weird about current Tumblr fandom wrt Spuffy is that (in my experience) the people who are most pressed about the Problematic-ness of Spike are... the shippers (as opposed to back in the day when people who went on long diatribes about him ACTUALLY hated him, lmao). Such is this day and age where people can't chill and ship what they want without being defensively hypercritical about it, smh. They can miss me with their self-flagellation.
