Vintage Buffy: My Favorite BtVS Moments

In honor of my (finally) complete thesis paper on the adorkable Willow from Buffy the Vampire Slayer I wanted to make a post celebrating my favorite things throughout the show. Willow’s character has been one of my greatest inspirations ever since I was – I can’t believe I’m even using this word – a tween, and the show is and always will be one of my favorites. There are so many amazing things about the show but I ended up narrowing it down to 10 of my (current) favorites represented by these awesome gifs.

1. Angel and Buffy’s relationship: it was such an emotional roller-coaster and I loved their chemistry.

2. Buffy’s training: I always thought it was cool when they showed Buffy doing martial arts in slow motion or during her training – it was easier to appreciate it than during an intense and fast-paced fight scene.

3. Buffy’s sass. Enough said.

4. Spike: just look at that smirk 😀 He’s one of my favorite characters and I though it was great when he started being one of the Scoobies.

5. Willow becoming a goddess: finally she got over all the darkness and pain, and became the great good witch that we all knew she was deep down inside!

6. Tara: anything with Tara is my favorite part of the show. Seriously. Anything.

7. Faith being all evil during season 3: she was the character I loved to hate.

8. Anya and Xander: they were perfect together and I was so brokenhearted when they split up 😦

9. More Willow: I loved seeing Willow do big spells – she was so bad-ass!

10. Everyone dancing and having fun at Bronze: sometimes there were happy moments without stress, evil, or vampires. Those moments showed the tight bond that the characters had outside all of the slaying business.

    1. Me neither! They were perfect and their romance had such a tragic ending. I think I always hoped that someday they’d get back together.

    1. Thank you so much! 😀 It was hard work and the last day I even had a slight meltdown… but finally after a year of working on it, it’s done!

  1. About to say something controversial… I loved Buffy and Riley together. I loved that she got to have someone so lovely to help her forget all the darkness in her life… I was distraught when he flew away!

    1. I also think he was really good for her 🙂 But I guess the timing was just really bad and she wasn’t ready for it. It was nice to see Buffy date a normal, nice guy for once though.
