    I just read Harmonic Divergence, and i cannot help but find an uncanny resemblance to stuff like how date rape being legalized and everyone thinking its okay etc etc.

    Wait, when was date rape legalised? Or are you referring to date rape drugs being available to buy online?
     
    Blaze: wow I didn't even know those could be bought online...what kind of world do we live in :(

    Yes. And the writers made Harmony the strongest vampire in all history just to make some boring points.

    Strength: She beats a slayer rather easily.
    Group Hypnotizing: Convinced most vamps not to kill. This is magnitudes stronger than Dracula.
    Social Status: Mediator between Buffy and Viki.

    That's because Harmony had the superpower of 'plot-contrivance' on her side.
    The signs were there in S5 of Angel but everyone ignored it and now its too late! :eek:
