In reply to: Clairel 's message, "BtVS novel "Spark and Burn" (spoilers for the novel, but it's non-canon anyway!)" on 19:42:31 07/28/05 Thu

The closest I come to reading Buffyverse fanfic, novels, or comics is when I read these synopses which, from what I've seen so far, are more entertaining (and cheaper too). I refuse to let anyone else horn in on my fantasy scenarios. For instance, I know the *real* reason Spike doesn't want to kill Joyce. When Spike first encounters Joyce (in the Summers' front yard in Becoming), Joyce echoes almost exactly what Spike's own mother said to him when she first saw Drusilla. Both mothers express worry over where their offspring have been. Spike's mother says "Who is this woman?" And Joyce says "Who is this man?" The similarities are just eerie. You can almost see the predatory gleam disappear from Spike's eyes when Joyce says that. Oh yes, it's just so obvious that Spike sees his own mother in Joyce, and Spike, being evil but still something of a mamma's boy, would never think of harming his mother's mirror image. Being impressed with Joyce's courage? Hah, utter nonsense! *My* reasoning is so much more reasonable. :-)

Now I'll just go away for a bit and think of more ways to demonstrate my superior grasp of the Buffyverse. ;-)
