Driveby hospot post is driveby:

The lettercol of Buffy #24, about the Satsu thing? NOT ENOUGH STABBITY IN THE WORLD. Who knew Buffy fandom of all places was so full of homophobia? (Why yes, I am repressing my memories of lurking atbvs, thank you.) And the people who claim there was no buildup clearly weren't paying the slightest bit of attention. LOLS at them printing the disappointed Buffy/Xander shipper at the end, though. (Incidentally, my rewatch has reached early S2 -- oh, evil Spike, you are rather great, as are you, Xander/Cordy UST -- and I suddenly realised that Some Assembly Required, which I had always thought of as decent but disposable filler, contains why I fell in love with the show in miniature. There's a scene there where Buffy, Willow and Xander discuss unrequited love and the history of their little triangle is all wonderfully there in the acting and OH. With my susceptibility to stories about crushes I was always going to go for them, especially as none of it stops them caring about each other or doing the right thing given the whole saving-the-world malarkey [with a few eminently believable exceptions]. Anyway, I still love Buffy, is the point, and Buffy/Satsu goes straight to the heart of what I love most about it.)

OTOH, \o/ Heather's back! In a way that makes sense and looks like it will have consequences and so on.
