    Hi all
    Found this place by chance.
    I used to post on a different board but that kinda died & no one goes on there any more.
    Looks like this one is quite popular though.

    Been a big Buffy fan since it first appeared on our screens & that led to Angel, Firefly, Dollhouse etc....
    Pretty much everything Joss related really (Though it all stemmed from catching WttH & being captivated)

    Always been a big fan of the Dark Slayer (waits for the hisses)...... Gotta love the Bad Girl!

    Any other Faith fans out there?

    Welcome to the boards! Things are quite slow now but once the Christmas hassles are over, there are typically anywhere from 60 to 75 people posting on these boards every day. You will find a lot of Faith devotees here.

    Hi! Welcome to the boards :) There are definitely a lot of Faith fans here, so you'll fit right in :p Do you prefer Faith on Angel or Buffy? What are your favorite relationships for Faith?

    Hi all
    Carrie - I actually prefer Faith when she came back to SunnyD in S7. When she had grown a bit as a Slayer.....
    Faith never really had any relationships...that was part of what made her what she was.
    Although I do think (and I know I'm going to get flak for this) that she really wanted to be with Buffy!
     
    Smile Time: She absolutely wanted to be with Buffy, we have a few other Fuffy shippers on here :)

    I didn't mean romantic and/or canon relationships. My favorite Faith relationship is the Angel/Faith friendship for example :) Also, there are lots of Fuffy shippers here so your opinion isn't unpopular!

    Ah, I see :)
    True, Angel was the only one to truly 'Get' Faith, & he really did try to bring her back from the edge (Way to ruin the moment Wes).
    It never had the chance to be fully explored though.....Unless you include the Angel/Faith Comic book series that is....
    Could have made a nice 'spinoff' series if Eliza hadn't gone for the Tru Calling role :(

    Welcome to the boards! I am a Faith fan as well she is one of my favorite characters! :) She has a great character arc! I think you are right there could have been more moments between Angel and Faith for their friendship on the shows but there aren't too many. But the friendship between them that is on there I really like :)

    Faith and Gunn could have been the great street-smart couple with tough backgrounds and a love of fighting and they were attracted to each other, so what stopped them? I love the "I hold my own," "That's a shame" exchange when they meet in "Salvage". This could have become the wonder couple on Angel. Another missed opportunity.

    In real life (not reflected online), about everyone seemed to prefer Faith over Buffy. They may take Buffy's side on an ethical level, but they were still drawn more to Faith. I remember finding it interesting that even many guys who complained of women liking the bad boys were obviously attracted to the bad girls (I know some fell in love with River Tam after she slaughtered a bunch of Reavers in the movie, I only barely refrained from joking that they wanted to have her babies :p ). It got me to thinking why do people (male and female) put down the bad, but at the same time are fascinated by and/or attracted to it? (I could go on about this, but it would quickly veer away from Buffy, and usually bores people who aren't so introspective about things.) But beyond that, I know both male and females felt that Buffy did a little too much moping and whining (which didn't go over well with most I was with at the time), and most of those I was close to tended to be outcasts who rejected convention (and Buffy, despite her quips and subversions, is an embracing of the conventional), unlike Faith who was boldly herself. That didn't mean they agreed with everything Faith said and did, but they respected her honesty and authenticity, even when it was brutal, and even those who sided with Buffy were still fascinated by and/or attracted to Faith more.

    Anywyay, welcome. :)
