I must be the only one on the planet that can't see Buffy and Faith together. If they had a relationship it would be as insane than her and Spike. I can't see them ever being together in a healthy relationship.
So is Giles and Buffy. Buffy can only be that bitchy in front of Giles and Giles can only be that impudent in front of Buffy.They do bring out the worst in each other.
They do bring out the worst in each other.
I think to be healthy you can't oppress the worst of you forever. You need someone to bring out the worst of you.
Sounds like you like Willow .Canon:
I have to differ between fanfictions telling a real story (all ratings) and PWPs (NC-17)
1. Willow/Faith - No explanation necessary from my POV.
2. Willow/Angel - There are some really sweet fics out there but one has to be careful: Many tend to be Buffy bashing. I think it's the easiest way to get rid of the competition by antagonizing her but it speaks of low skill. It's the same reason because I'm very apprehensive towards Buffy/Tara shipping stories. It's the easiest way to make Willow into a manipulating, twisted bitch to clear the path for Tuffy. And for some reason many Spuffy fics tend to be Willow bashing too, which I don't quite get.
3. Willow/Xander - They're sweet. In some alternate reality I'm sure they're happy and have a couple of babies.
I can think of excuses for any character to have sex with Willow (okay, not Clem and Lorne). My focus is on the Willow smut anyway.
I've read Xander/Illyria - it's in a Spike/Wes series but it's a big part, and very well done. After all, Illyria and Anya can both be strangely literal.
Ooops - though technically Illyria would be Q?
