Dating Death: Essay: Love and Sex in Buffy the Vampire Slayer
On both sides of the Atlantic, it has become something of an icon of postmodern and post-feminist savvy. It has generally been received not only as a thoroughly enjoyable spectacle offering the unlikely joys of a petite, wisecracking, Valley-babe righteously kicking ‘date-rapist’ aka vampire butt, but as a ‘subversive’ or ‘transgressive’ text. Buffy has also been associated with extra-textual subcultural activity.
Although Buffy makes obvious reference to extra-textual mileux such as ‘goths’ in particular, I will be concentrating primarily on the articulations of the BTVS fanbase itself which does not, on the whole, actually include ‘goths’. Subcultural analysis is a sociological approach which tends to associate ‘subculture’ with excluded or oppositional socio-economic sub-structures.
Buffy’s cult appeal is, however, the calculated product of marketing strategy, and it seems worth exploring it’s ‘transgressive’ reputation within the context of current forces of production and practices of consumption, using a materialist and micropolitical approach.
ambiguous nemesis The Immortal is doing with their old flame (Buffy Summers); who they are mortified to learn is now dating The Immortal.
With Angel now having a soul and being in love with Buffy, they were immediately enemies. When Angel became Angelus, Spike was jealous that he was once again playing second fiddle to him. They still deeply hated each other, but at the same time finally had the chance to explore their long, winding history. Angel was a much more comedic show than Buffy the Vampire Slayer , so David Boreanaz and James Marsters really got to showcase their brilliant comedy team chops.
Here are the most hilarious Spike vs. Angel memes the Whedonverse has to offer. He frequently refers to him as pretty boy. The feeling is mutual, as their insecurity issues are one of the roots of their ongoing hatred. Buffy usually handles it with a snarky comment or a punch, or sometimes both. Seriously, he may have even cried.
Knowing Spike, his reaction would not have been as understanding as Angel. He would have had something ridiculous, inappropriate and funny to say about Buffy calling herself cookie dough. Obviously, the minute Twilight came out, it was destined to be compared to Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

However, she wants to become truly immortal by summoning an ancient demon called the Triumvirate. And of course her choice spot to do so would be in Sunnydale, especially with the extra magical vibes emanating from the Hellmouth.
Unfortunately, while Buffy is trying to keep Veronique’s vampire henchmen at bay, she also has to deal with the fact that her mother is sick in the hospital. There’s a chance that she has cancer, but they won’t know for sure until they’ve performed surgery on her. Buffy has to decide where she’s needed most: with her mother, or to stop the end of the world. Buffy and her friends battle Veronique and the Trumverate with help from Lucy Hanover and other spirits who possess them as the Triumverate need to drain the life-force of nearby souls.

Antiheroes are sexy. They are roguish free spirits that take what they want, live for themselves, and always come out on top. Antiheroes tend to be a lot of things, but mostly they are just stupid. People who do whatever they want without regard for any guiding principles are just assholes. One of the things that made Breaking Bad so amazing was its ability to see through that bullshit. Yet there was nothing glossy about the whole enterprise and the audience knew that because of how ugly things got for Walt by the end.

How “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” Became Immortal
I Call Shenanigans! There is some strange aspect of the way her features coalesce that makes Buffy look not-so-much like Buffy when drawn on paper.
