I don't the think the pairing is weird, I just think its a bit like a dull/predictable. 'And lo, unto the second generation we will have Bangel reborn.'
Also its hard to see a relationship dynamic when the two characters never interact. Chemistry is important.
I'm also not sure what they would have in common apart from age and that their parental figure is basically a superhero.
I can see them bonding like siblings over the actions of their parents and making jokes about how goofy Dad-Angel can be or how fussy and interfering Big-Sister-Buffy can be but the idea of romance never even occurred to me.
Having thought about it a bit I can see how Dawn might interest Connor; he likes a brunette with a feisty personality (like Faith) and normal-S5 Connor has a certain Xander-like goofiness that Dawn might crush on.
Considering I'm not into messed up relationships. I don't want Dawn&Connor being Bangel #2. It is sick and weird. It would be a lot like saying like lets have another Rufus&Lily/Dan&Serena touch to the Buffyverse. I believe that these shows shouldn't be as sick as Gossip Girl.
I don't see what they are supposed to share in common. Sometimes it seems the only reason people offer them as a ship in the first place is because people find them both annoying and melodramatic and that they are the youngest people on each show. Beyond that though I don't really see what it is between them that is supposed to be the basis for a relationship.
I don’t see why it would be weird. Even if Bangel got back together. Buffy isn’t Dawn’s mom. I know she took over that role eventually, but they didn’t grow up like that and Connor and Dawn didn’t grow up together at all.
Whether they have anything in common is a different story, and I could certainly see it being awkward if the 4 of them were all hanging out together. But in terms of icky or incestuous, I don’t see it at all.
