I'd get along with Lilah, Oz and Angel, definitely. They have strong characters and aren't weak. You pretty much know what they're about.
I wouldn't be able to stand anyone else for more than ten minutes. I love Anya, but she'd drive me CRAZY after awhile. Same with Tara. And I LIKE these two, so you can imagine how I feel about everyone else.
When someone is watching TV whether or not they would want to hang out with them has no bearing on who their character is, at least or me. So I have honestly never given this much thought!
@Ethan Reigns, Why would you get along with Fred and Dawn but not Tara? where does Willow fall?
I would think Tara and Willow were cool if they had a online presence but we wouldn't click because they would be to cool for me in real life.
I don't have intellectual stamina like Fred but I am a giant Whedon fan, that is kind of dorky? maybe we would discuss literature and philosophy and maybe I would be in the same book club as the three of them.
I think I would get along best with Oz, the way he turned down Willow when she wasn't ready was so accepting and sweet, we would all be so lucky to be turned down by Oz. He is gentlemanly and chivalrous, I am more on the shy side Oz would know drawing attention to a introvert like me by playfully teasing them, to"bring them out of their shell" would make them even more uncomfortable.
I would laugh at Xander's jokes but he might not notice me or look at me side ways like Dawn lol
I would despise Spike's flamboyant devil may care attitude but we would probably end up dating eventually (based on intution from similar situations)
Angel we wouldn't be friends, I would feel intimidated by his authoritative presence and I would feel judged by his extravagant moralism, he isn't the right person to help me be more outgoing (as he is not Mr. social) but his wise counsel would give me more confidence. So we would end up acquaintances. I can actually see me challenging him at first, even though I come off as reserved and slow to warm up I have a defiant attitude in regards to authority same reason I appreciate Oz but wouldn't gel on romantic level as I am mellow on the surface but feisty underneath not sure hat is Oz's type.
High adrenaline types mash with their opposites hence Spike.
Buffy is my sister and Dawn is too by extension. Buffy is super emotionally intelligent, I would learn so much on how to conduct myself with integrity but I guess that goes for everyone. I would be like the female Xander girlfriend, I know lots of people love the Buffy&Spike balcony scene, I hate it so much, I would cut a B then and then If I ever heard them talking to my friend like that knowing they have depression (though her friends didn't know because she wasn't talking to them /end tangent)
Honestly, I am different enough from Faith that we would be like B&F except she'd be enough of a bad influence to take me down with her lol
Get along the least with Wesley, (I am too sensitive for his later season gruffness) I can't decide if I would have fun with Cordelia or if the mother vibe would provoke a defiant stance. Although maybe if we were the same age when we meet we would be yin and yang besties.
Definitely Faith, but not BtVS S3 Faith, that bitca be kray-kray, later seasons, redemption-arc Faith. She is still Faith, just...mellower, which is kinda like me in my old age
I would not get along with Angel, cause his attitude would just annoy me and I'd wind up staking him..."Oops, sorry guys, guess you're gonna have to find a new boss." I can handle him on a show, in real life? Yeah, no.
Angel and Wesley would be where I'd be hanging out. Big-picture thinkers, head over heart, know the most about history (I'd be picking Angel's brain hard), smart, depressive, introspective, etc... My Asperger's self would be comfortable there. Sitting in a dark room talking about intellectual things or being on the research team is definitely my speed.
Lorne, Angel and I would get along very well because... our musical tastes are similar. I had old parents. I'm stuck in the Oldies. Sipping a drink in a corner at Caritas would be fun (except it would involve as much effort to get me out to socialize as it would Angel!). The Bronze would be more appealing on slow song night without the crowds for the live bands.
High school Buffy was enough of a goody-two-shoe that we'd probably get along fine. I have a very girly side, so there's some hope for us to get along. I'd also get along with Fred (oddly enough, the crazy version more so). I had an event in my life that involved me being trapped in another country in a horrible place for 10 months unable to talk to my parents (who are nice), so talking to Pylea-era Fred would appeal to me. And I would be tempted to join her for tacos.
Given that I'm now down to one parent (my father and last grandparent died this year), I could sadly relate to the dead family members club.
I might be tempted to murder Xander. Sorry, I would loathe him, hate his passive-agressiveness, hate his jokes and he'd grate on my last nerve. Harmony would similarly give me migraines. Faith's high energy, hyper-sexuality, ADHD-like behavior and wildness would be hard for me to deal with. On paper, I should get along with Willow (computer nerd, big brain), but her power-tripping, emotional hysterics and proto-SJW tendencies would drive me barmy. I'd probably be fine with the high school version, though. Willow later on would be someone I'd hate. I think I'd get along with Tara better.
How could I forget Lorne? While I wouldn't see us getting close given his intense focus and knowledge of pop stars and singers (which is as arcane to me as the knowledge some of the other characters have of comics), I still like him a lot. Just watching the show I have a "big sister" vibe to him, like I want to help him out, encourage him, even protect him (if I could). What I'd really love is if he'd share some of the deeper insights into human nature (and those not human), including of myself...but I wouldn't want to tire him out too much (just as I wouldn't want him to force me to listen to every singer he loves).
