I love the manip. The Twilight symbol over Buffy is creepy...

Thanks for taking a look - I really wanted to convey how I much I dislike, the total disconnect between the actions of Angel/Twangel and Buffy's easy acceptance of his tempting "love call"

I have to say that I agree with much that is being said about the deconstruction of the series in order to break away from all this "shipper" effect. This feels like The Black Kali Season -

For me, this series has been primarily about breaking down Buffy, hopefully so that she can finally heal from all the scars of her early experience with Angel/Angelus. The other theme that I am taking away from this is also the political and social dynamics of Power Elites manipulating trying to manipulate people into herds of blind followers - either following words of the prophets of their Gods or the Power Brokers like General Voll.

I take great pleasure reading your comments at the forum sites and here at LJ -

Dawn has to be crucial to the arc. Just look at the comic titles:

"Always Darkest" >
It's always darkest before DAWN

"Twilight" + "Last Gleaming" >
Oh, say can you see by the DAWN's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming


I really hope that she doesn't die. Especially not in order to try to really hook up Buffy and Xander in season 9. *shudder*
