I grew up with Buffy as teenager, and still haven't out grown this world. I love everything Spike and Buffy, with maybe more interest toward Spike.
What can I say he is a badass! The arrogance, swagger, vulnerablity, and sensitiviy of this character hooked me immediately. I believe the show missed many opportunities to show how strong of a fighter he was even though he was chipped. The fifth season of Angel brought back the Spike that I had missed.
Buffy is an amazing role model. A model of feminism in my book. She's strong but totally flawed. A character that I am proud to introduce to my daughter when the time comes.
I've always been an avid reader, and have dabbled in writing throughout my teens and college years. Writing fanfic has been great practice and I hope you like what I have created in the Buffyverse. God knows I've missed this show!
