This is the hardest thing I’ve ever forced myself to commit to paper, because as flippant as I am, I don’t enjoy talking about my own emotions. I keep an obvious line drawn in the sand when it comes to things that are close to my heart. I don’t like to tell people about things […]
“I do not, however, understand why the woman who brutally tortured me last night, this morning gets pastries.”
Last year, I had a shot at saving her. I was pulling her back from the brink when some British guy kidnapped her and made damn sure that she’d never trust another living soul.
“Shut up. Do you think I’m afraid of you? You’re nothing! Disgusting! Murderous bitch! You’re nothing! You’re disgusting!”
You think you matter, you think you’re a part of something, and you get dumped. It’s like the whole world is moving, but you’re stuck. Like those animals in the tar pits. It’s like you just keep sinking a little deeper everyday, and nobody even sees!
I’ve never been the type to cave to peer or societal pressure, yet if you ask me why I kept telling the Santa lie long after I wanted to boot him out on his jolly ass, that’s the reason I’ll most likely give.
Caregiving: Strength and Faith
It is not an uncommon sight on support forums to see people giving advice that centres on keeping faith with their deity of choice. Or praying for strength, and so on. In an odd way, the world of mental illness – and specifically with this series – caregivers, can lend itself to the “there are no atheists […]
Buffy — Choose Your Own Cast
Last week, our friends at Pajiba speculated on what their dream Buffy reboot cast would look like. While some of Rob’s suggestions are pretty great ““ who wouldn’t want to see Tom Hidddleston on their screen every week ““ his dream cast isn’t my dream cast.
Congratulations to the class of 1999. You all proved more or less adequate. This is a time of celebration, so sit still and be quiet.
What isn’t? You know, I come to Sunnydale. I’m the Slayer. I do my job kicking ass better than anyone. What do I hear about everywhere I go? Buffy. So I slay, I behave, I do the good little girl routine. And who’s everybody thank? Buffy. You get the Watcher. You get the mom. You […]
You and me, Faith, we’re a lot alike. Time was, I thought humans existed just to hurt each other. But then I came here. And I found out that there are other types of people. People who genuinely wanted to do right. And they make mistakes. And they fall down. You know, but they keep […]
“When are you going to get this, B? Life for a Slayer is very simple – want… take… have.”
My husband and I have been married for a few decades now. We’ve been working hard on achieving the happily ever after that’s been promised in fairy tales, rom-coms, and romance novels. Alas, my state is now the seventh state in the union to pass marriage equality.
I won’t remind you that the fate of the world often lies with the Slayer. What would be the point? Nor shall I remind you that you’ve jeopardized the lives of all that you hold dear by harboring a known murderer. But, sadly, I must remind you that Angel tortured me… for hours… for pleasure. […]
It’s hard for me to put into words what it’s like to be in an inter-faith relationship. In some respects it’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done and in other ways it’s completely natural. If you had asked me 6 years ago if I would ever consider dating a non-Christian guy, I definitely would have […]
