*eyes recent spoilery discussions around the Eljay about the Buffy Season 8 storyline*

Oh, Joss. Oh honey. You are such a fandom troll.

(I can only bear to giggle instead of gnash teeth because he frankly lost any chance at my considering the comics part of the canon continuity when Skinless Warren walked into the picture. Or rather when I realized a bit later the reason he shouldn't be walking into the picture besides 'Oh God not him again.')

...Yeah, I know. Giant Dawn I can handle. Buffy and Satsu, I can not only handle, I loved, in all its doomed-to-failure fuckeduppery, because it was interesting. (Dear fandom: here is a Kinsey Scale. Step on it.) But 'oops, when we brought back this character and said he survived, we forgot we used him as a plot point in an arc about a creature that can only impersonate the dead?' That'd be the point where it became fanfic.

I totally gave up on the comics in the same issue Warren was brought back, but for the way Joss killed Ethan as practically a freaking afterthought. Way to completely waste an intriguing character for no reason.

So as far as I'm concerned, my official Buffy canon ends at Chosen.

Yeeeah, you've heard my thoughts on that too. Of all the people to kill to make a point to Buffy, they pick Ethan Rayne?
