Happidy Bidurfday!
To justhuman, and may it be a happy and healthier year, full of pretty boys, appliances that don't break down, and viruses that flee in fear from your mighty, mighty immune system. Rarrrr!

Just wanted to leave some feedback for "Ghost" which I came across from a rec at buffyversetop5. The song choice was particularly apt for Giles and Ethan, but I thought the transition to Buffy/Faith worked very well also. I hadn't considered how apt the parallels were before between the two pairs and it's interesting to speculate how Buffy will look back on it, and whether it will be the same way Giles does.

Thank you! The parallels struck me from the beginning - I couldn't decide whether it was a Giles/Ethan vid or a Buffy/Faith vid, til I realized that the solution was ...both. But whether the transition worked in the vid has always been a big question for me (it has for some people, less so for others).

Me, I think that Buffy would probably look at it as 'yay, closure' vs. Giles seeing possibility still (though as always with Ethan that possibility isn't guaranteed to be a good one). Buffy, I think, was always far less open to the sparks between them than Faith was - there was something there, but she was really confused by it and much more comfortable putting it on the level of rivalry/friendship/trust. Whereas I read Giles pushing Ethan away because of the choices he's made (and keeps making) in his life, rather than an inherent discomfort with the idea of a relationship between them beyond that of friends/rivals.

Well she's so young still there still may be all sorts of things that alter her between now and then. Not to mention how persistent Faith (like Ethan) might be :>

Is true! ...and now I want to make a joke about Faith eating cookie dough that is going NOPLACE good.
