My Articles of Faith. Ahem.

First off, y'all guessed all the movie quotes except #8: Ha HO, don't hit anybody! That would be Farmer Ted to Jake in Sixteen Candles, right before he drove the Prom Queen home. (I heard the grill alone cost 5 Grand! Do you have 5 grand? I don't have 5 grand! - So don't hit anybody.) My love for Farmer Ted knows no bounds...

crazydiamondsue poked me because I'm not doing anything in the fandom. Well, this is kinda sorta fandom related. Well, most of it.



  • I believe in the deepest part of my soul that babies and toddlers know that Wal-Mart is evil, and THAT is why they FRICKIN' CRY AS SOON AS THEY GET IN THE DOOR. AND DON'T STOP. Until they are safe in their cars moving away from the evil Big-Box.

  • I believe with deepest fervor that if I don't exercise every day, I get in a funk. A funk that can only be repaired by a sunny day and me being in it.

  • I know with a certainty (shush) that Angel and Spike made it. They were broken, bruised, and at dust's door, but they made it.

  • I believe that Angel and Buffy will want each other for the rest of their existence, and will think about each other in some way, every day, such as when Buffy goes shopping and sees a really well-made 3/4 length coat and gets an ice-pick-stab of pain in her chest - but not literally, her reflexes are too good, or when Angel smells freshly baked cookies. And that will make him simultaneously long for her and sneer at her earlier analogy. But they will never be together and that makes me sad, but glad, because it makes the story better.

  • I have conviction that Spike and Buffy will run into each other at some point "on the job" and will be thrilled to see each other, but Buffy will hear about Harmony and make an "ewwww!" face when she hears about the bloody Harmony eyes and will not take it any farther.

  • Except for a few years later when she's hard up and Spike is still pretty and they get drunk reminiscing about old times, and Spike will drink a toast to "Charlie" and Buffy will throw herself on him.

  • She will slink out and leave a note and Spike will swear "never again." This, I believe.

  • I know that if I make myself a plate of nachos with black beans and eye the Cokes in the fridge, I will start my period the next day. In addition, someone in the world is the boss of my menstrual flow and they are fucking it up, and one day I will find them and force menopause on them. We have the technology...

  • I believe that Connor has dreams about his dad. And it's Holtz. And he wakes up feeling more alone than the day before.

  • I believe that Angel has dreams about Connor. And Holtz is the boy's father. And he wakes up feeling more alone than before.

  • I believe FIRMLY that Drusilla will eventually find Connor. And that she will love him. And try to make a new family. And that would be a really kick ass show.

  • I know deep down that the writers were phoning it in on Season 7 of Buffy, because I know they didn't want it to end, but knew it had to, like the rest of us. And I can kind of forgive them, because I know they loved her as much as me.

  • I believe that Wesley sent a lovely floral arrangement to the Burkles and told them about their beloved daughter's brave death. And had that orchestrated to happen on the chance of HIS death, so he wouldn't be blamed in the afterlife when he was reunited with Winnifred.

  • I believe Wesley, in his final moments, had a belief in such a thing. And laughed at himself for it. But still had that last hope.

  • I believe that Faith heard about Joyce's death while cooling her heels in prison and cried when the lights were out.

  • I believe Willow dumped Kennedy eventually and learned to be strong on her own, and to stop defining herself by who she dated. But it took a very long time.

  • I believe I am finished now.

Oh man. That really would be a kickass show, well, if you wrote it.

And dude, Spike and Angel TOTALLY made it. I refuse to believe otherwise.

Man, I still miss that show. :(

I believe that Xander and Willow will move into a retirement home together, and watch videos, and eat junk food, and braid each other's hair. I think they'll grow old together, but they won't do it because they don't have *those kind* of feelings for each other.
stoney321
Aug. 17th, 2005 09:11 am (UTC)
YES!! But I believe that Xander will still try and get a little touch, because he's Xander, and Willow won't even look at him, she'll just move his hand back to his lap, give it a pat, and they won't ever talk about it.

And he'll try every few years. Heee!

I believe in God the Father, and in his Son, Jesus Christ, and his step-daughter, Mergatroid.

Okay, I don't believe in any of that stuff. Except for Mergatroid. Her I will give my life to. Did you see Katies comment above about Willow and Xander? Hee hee!!

wait, wrong fandom.

awww, man, these are great. especially the Wesley ones, of course, she says with a bias she no longer bothers to conceal :).

as far as Wesley's dying moments, it's bizarre, but I always think of a James Taylor lyric:

There’s a song that they sing when they take to the highway
A song that they sing when they take to the sea
A song that they sing of their home in the sky
Maybe you can believe it if it helps you to sleep
But singing works just fine for me.

The Buffy/Angel stuff is so TRUE. Theirs is a forever love.

The Wesley ones made me tear up! And I am not THE Wesley girl, as we know.

I believe FIRMLY that Drusilla will eventually find Connor. And that she will love him. And try to make a new family. And that would be a really kick ass show.
Yes. And I believe you should pitch it to the networks. Now. No. Now.

I only half agree with the Willow/Kennedy one, because I have Kennedy love. But I believe the Willow portion of your statement to be true.

Man, I KNEW #8 was a Ringwald movie but I couldn't place it! And all the other ones where done by the time I arrive (fashionably late) to that party. I also believe that I like your layout. Very much so. But you need a header.

I worried about that comment after I did it, so I altered it and posted it to my own journal instead. I do not mean to tromp the Bangel ship, nor Adis, if I did, omg paranoia. I LOVE ADIS and I think she is very smart. And I like Bangel. So there.

I believe it love it when Stoney is on a roll.

I believe will still need more Connor fic. And Dawn fic. And Wesley fic. Dammit, just write everyone.

I still believe that Wesley didn't die that night. I'm in denial. I know that. Is there a twelve step program for us who believe this?

I believe that Wes and Faith did "get it on" after the Beast pummeled the shit out of her. Just me and a few of my friends believe this.

OK, enough. I know, I know. Now I need to go fold clothes.
stoney321
Aug. 17th, 2005 01:19 pm (UTC)
I TOTALLY WANT MORE CONNOR FIC. I want more Faith fic, too. And I can see a story in the post-beast traumitization... Like, Wes carries her broken body back to the Hyperion, and cleans her off and kisses her in gratitude, but it's been a long time in prison and she grips him behind the head and keeps him there, and they slide and groan into each other's mouths and then when he finally breaks free she says, "Thanks," and he says, "Don't mention it," and then the gang comes in to see how it went?

But mostly I want a fic where Connor and Faith spar. Mmm. Training.

*hugs you tight*

I believe I just friended you. I also believe that I spent the night before last, yes the ENTIRE night, reading the bad(great!)fic marathon and wheezing whilst tears streamed from my eyes. "Dear Santa Clause..." THEN I read most of them to Mr. Puppy. He's on lifesupport now...

anyhoo...of all of the above, the one that got me was know with a certainty (shush) that Angel and Spike made it. They were broken, bruised, and at dust's door, but they made it. I haven't bought seasons 4 and 5 yet. I plan to soon, but will only watch s 5 til "Smile Time" and then live in my own little made up world of...oh, wait I already do that. Might as well watch the whole damn thing.
stoney321
Aug. 17th, 2005 03:31 pm (UTC)
Oh, I just dove in to those seasons, pain be damned. Of course, it's because I have deep Angel/Connor relationship needs and needed to cram all of the images deep into my brain...

And welcome aboard! This is a come and go freely journal, so no worries if it turns out I'm too cracked for your tastes. :-D

Pretty much, eh? They're like, Mr. Burns evil. Who tries to build a store on an Aztec burial ground? I mean, honestly?

With Willow and Kennedy? HELLS YEAH she dumped that ass. I'm disgusted that THAT was the one relationship that Buffy ended with. I mean, c'mon!

And your Wes ones made me tear up . . . *sniffle* My poor Wesley.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
