is this beautiful solidarity too much for you, anon?
(also, i feel bad for you.)
- A calling for suggestions for fanfics based on the comics -
Any size, rate, pairing, kind; can conflict with subsequent stories, be little headcanons, simply contain one of the new characters or contexts… Not only because I’m in need for new readings, but I could share an ongoing list with recommendations, I think it would be interesting to maintain.
So, do you have any?
I have plenty :)

And I’ll post more later
Personally I still really like Xander and I think he gets waaaay more hate than he deserves. almost everyone else’s shitty behaviour seems to be excused more than it is for xander even when a lot of characters have done way worse things than xander has. of course he has said and done some problematic things but i know a lot of the time he was just looking out for people and doing what he thought was best (i.e. telling buffy to kick angelus’ ass was completely justified i think. and of course he would be shocked and unhappy to find out buffy was sleeping with spike, sure he couldve handled it better but most people completely do not forgive him which i think is unfair)
xander, by his very nature is extremely loyal and a bit irresponsible and often doesnt think things through the best that he can and of course that leads to some problematic situations but i think a lot of people don’t realise all of the good sides to him, i think it gets ignored a lot which is a real shame!
unfortunately there has been quite a few times where xander’s dialogue has been used to demean a few of the women characters by making them the subject of a joke which is a stupid stupid thing
but xander matured a lot over the seven years and always stayed on the side of good and stuck by his friends, and made them feel important (see dawn!) and loved (see buffy and willow!) and saved the world through his heart
so, yes, you can dislike xander for whatever reason as long as it’s justified, but don’t ignore the good in xander whilst ignoring the bad in all of your favourites!
Okay. But let’s talk about Thor for a second. Thor does not get enough love and (Loki forgive me) he is honestly one of the best fucking characters Marvel has. And it’s shown so simply and so beautifully right here. He is so fucking chill about everything. Obviously, he doesn’t live in space, he lives in Asgard. But he knows everyone thinks he’s kinda like an alien, and he just goes along with it because why not? These humans are funny in their lack of understanding, but it’s an endearing kind of funny. Just like in the first movie, where Darcy tells him to smile so she can take a picture of him and he has no fucking clue what she’s doing or what a phone is and it could kill him for all he knows but he just fucking smiles and keeps eating his delicious pancakes because he’s just so chill like that. And if you look at his face in the first gif, it’s very serious and concentrated but the moment Darcy starts talking to him he loosens up and is like “Muscles? Ah, yes I suppose I am quite muscular. Oh, she’s inquiring about Asgard. But she called it space. She seems confused as to my origins, but it’s not of import. I like space, that’s a good name. I shall call it space too.”
And that little head nod he does back to her in the last gif. I’m dead. Deceased. Murdered from Thor cuteness.
He’s just.. ugh, Thor doesn’t get enough appreciation. There are so many little things he does that go ignored but no more. His complete adorableness will be appreciated.

From the journal of Rupert Giles —
So. I recently started watching Buffy for the first time ever.
Here are my first impressions, but most notably, the fact that this show makes 1997 seem like the Mesozoic Era.
