The Thoughts of a Rabid Bibliophile

In which I read Catching Fire while making snarky remarks and display my reactions to scenes in the book.

My Adventures Through Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel

One fateful day, as my roommate and I were watching Doctor Who. It just so happened to be the episode that Anthony Head guest stars in. Having only seen him in Merlin, I made a comment about how “this guy always plays such assholes, ugh!”

My roommate, I die-hard Whedonverse fan, nearly had a heart attack. She stopped the Doctor Who episode, sat me down, and said, “All right, that’s it! You’re watching Buffy!”

And that’s how I became a giant Buffyverse fan. Found below is my journey, in reaction gifs, through these life-changing—and heart-wrenching—shows. Not every event is represented, but there was a lot that happened in these shows, so please just deal with it.

Well, on with the show!
