Dawn was not really Buffy's sister, she was dropped in as being the key. Buffy accepted her, and talk about her being the key was dropped. It was not good writing how she was dropped into the series.
I agree. I think Dawn should've been Buffy's cousin who ended up having to live with Joyce and Buffy. Add in a tragic reason why, and then you've got a conflict where Buffy is annoyed by Dawn but can't really say anything about it because of the tragic reason.

True . They could have said that Joyce younger sister was Dawn mother so Buffy would have know & not want to get her mom mad at her because of what had happened to Dawn.

Your name has me wondering how Cordelia would act towards dawn if they met... How would.they get along? That would be interesting.

Agreed . Would it be funny if Cordelia & Dawn bonded & were more like sisters to each other then Dawn & Buffy was

What do you think ?

I think it would be sad. It would be like Connor bonding more with Spike or Xander than he does with Angel.

It was crappy writing, which is why I dislike this season the most.

What I really disliked was they dropped the idea of Dawn being special . They spent Season 5 making Dawn special & then nothing …...
