If BTVS characters had real jobs

The other day I dozed off in class and my brain automatically wandered to Buffy, I thought, what would the Buffy characters jobs be if they were not on the show and it was real life? For example, if Angel wasn't a vampire, what job would he have as a normal human? I always see Angel as a psychologist, as he is always good at sorting people out and giving them advice (such as Faith). Have as much fun with this as you want, the more ridiculous the better! And remember, in this world vampires and stuff don't exist! Cant wait to see what you guys come up with! 😊 💕

Fisherman. Angel. Yep. 😆 I don't know. The first image that popped into my head is Liam walking around at the docks in a leather apron and overalls for some reason.

Jokes aside, I could picture non-Slayer Buffy as a waitress due to Anne, maybe opening a cafe of her own, having a quaint little family. Liam probably would've been the same drunken loser he was if he wasn't turned into a vampire, unfortunately.

Buffy would have finished her degree and eventually become a Doctor of something . . . anthropology? geology? she'd have an adventurous life travelling the world. Spike would be a screenwriter, always going on about how Hollywood sucks out a mans soul and how hellish LA is, but too stuck to actually leave. Willow would be working is silicon valley, probably as woke as woke can be. Xander would be running a Ford dealership maybe, but his passion would be carpentry and he'd work in his shed evenings and weekends, making cradles and tables and toy boats for the kids.

Oz and Willow would have been recruited as Microsoft's power couple specializing in system security testing so that Wilow's capabilities at hacking would be put to use in making hack-proof systems. In this case, Oz would build the system code and Willow would try to hack it.

Buffy worked as a waitress and a guidance counselor and she would probably gravitate toward guidance counselling. She was enrolled in psychology.

Giles was a watcher, a school librarian and a magic shop owner and magic shop owner is where he would stay.

Xander was a construction boss and would stay there.

Cordelia would keep on trying her luck at acting.

Spike would be a beatnik poet.

Dawn would be a linguist specializing in historical languages (since she taught herself Sumerian).

Anya would still be a vengeance demon.

Angel would be on the night shift as an investigator.

Joyce would work in an art gallery but not her own - that only happened because the Watcher's Council set it up.

Tara would be a perpetual student.
