Goldangit. I'm not supposed to write this.

I'm supposed to be doing laundry.  And vacuuming.  This was supposed to be the grocery list.  Then karabair posted some of her postcard fics, and this just sprang up among the ideas for my postcard... Rating: PG Spoilers: For Faith? Up to the last fifteen minutes of the last Angel ep/NFA S5. Protagonist: Faith Subject: A letter to Wes from Faith. She doesn't know.


Wes,
 
Yeah, so Robin said this would be all good for me and - whatever. Oh - Robin Wood.  He's, uh, mine.  Remember that slayer that Spike killed in NY?  It's her kid.  You'd like him.  He's all noble and shit, but can throw down in a fight, too.  Forget what you may have heard about him and B dating.  Fucking rumors, man.
 
After we stopped the First we though it'd be chill for a while.  Thought the slayerettes could handle the next Big Bad.  Then we heard you and Angel fucking turned from the mish.  I know why I got all dark and evil, but come on.  You cut your girl's head off and go Vader?  The hell?
 
Heard yesterday from Giles.  Says Angel and the gang went Sydney.  You catch that show?  Alias?  Pretty good.  You'd like the skinny dude.  Kinda looks like you.  Turns out you fought your own Big Bad, huh?  Fucking dragons and shit?  Shoulda called.  Could have been in LA in an hour.
 
So now that I don't have to hunt you down and kick your ass for being all turncoat, I just wanna say that I hope we're cool.  I was a pretty messed up kid.  I kinda got put in charge of the new girls out here.  Kids mostly.  But they're alright.  Some of them had it bad like me.  It ain't all singing and braiding hair, but it's cool.  It's weird to have kids look up to me.  I think they get me and B mixed up sometimes.
 
You're no Angel, but... you're cool.  Sorry for torturing you and ... you know.  Sorry.  I don't care what you hear, Robin is NOT like Gunn.  Gunn was cool and all, but what was with the Texas Twig?  Oh, snap!  Sorry, Wes.  Tell Angel's brat "hey" for me.  And that if he ever makes a move on his dad again?  I'll kick his ass worse than last time.
 
Drop me a line and tell me how much demon-ass you kicked in that fight.
 
Stay cool.
 
Faith

<-- I am crap in a bag now.
*sigh* You boys and your lack of watching Buffy. I'm avoiding all of the tasks I SHOULD be doing. But I'm a spazz, so I'm "avoidy."

Jokes aren't funny when you explain them. Now I feel like a dork.

Dude, I know. I should be doing other things but I'm all avoidy and shit. *EG*

(Ask your girl about it. She'll set you straight.)

You doing okay? Oh!! ANd I meant to vote on your poll. Thank god you do NOT look like Will Wheaton. He was a cute kid, but grew up to look like a potential pedophile. You exceed his looks. And that was NOT to try and get you to read my fic. ha ha!

I'm doing just fine, thanks for asking. Ya know, if ever the eventuality of my viewing Angel comes up, I'm sure to find it much less entertaining than your irreverant take on it.

More heart wrenching than Wes imagining loving Fred?? Wow. I just calmed the fuckers, er, kids down and am telling you here and now that I HEART SUE!!!

I'm sorry for the hysterical laughter of hidden sobs on the phone just now... Bed time in three, two, one...

Sue stole the line I'd picked!

Dude, so painfully pain filled, BECAUSE SHE HAS NO IDEA! And she's trying to make amends and do right and she HAS NO IDEA!

And now I wanna know: does she find out? how she finds out? how does she take it?

I know!! Poor Faith. She is my absolute, hands down favorite female character in the Joss world. Never caught a break, and the hard knocks train keeps pulling into her station.

I didn't think past this letter. Should I? I think my fanfiurl list of three doesn't quite qualify me for the sequel world.

*sops up your mess. Is it soupy?*

It's always soupy for you.

Qualification, shmalifications.

Ouchy. Awful thing, that Wes is dead and no one knows. And people who could have helped, including Faith, didn't know and didn't help. She's gonna feel horrible when she finds out. Hell, they could all be dead, and no one knows.

I am terribly avoidy. Right now I am not doing my homework because my cat keeps sitting on my book. Also because it scares me. I am an idiot and so gonna flunk. I should just look for a job and drop out of school.

<-- failing tests is also like crap in a bag.
I hate that no one knows. I thought virtual season 6 would help, but I need the pictures.

You are not going to fail out of school. If you don't do stellar on ONE test? Sheeee-it. It happens. I survived after feeling the same thing and having the entire semester of Cs and Ds. Can you retake a course if it is truly that bad? Or are you punishing yourself to make yourself work harder??

Your sleep CD should be going out by Friday. Does that help any? *slides crib notes across desk to you*

Re: <-- failing tests is also like crap in a bag.
I will have a moment of perfect happiness when I get my CD. And will then be evil. Yay!

Ignore the whining behind the curtain. I am not meaning to bum you out (further). I may flunk a couple of my courses. I've still got a month, maybe I can pull off barely passing.

Faith-based initiatives
Hmm, do I think you should write more Faith fic? Do I think my so-evil-she's-almost-Joss CD-mixing muse should write more fic about one of my 2 favoritest Jossverse gals? YES. And if there's a way to bring Riley into it? I'm just saying. (post-Chosen Faith/Riley would be my OTP if anyone would ever write it!)

I already squeed about this whole fic in email, but let me reiterate my favorite line:

Some of them had it bad like me. It ain't all singing and braiding hair, but it's cool. It's weird to have kids look up to me. I think they get me and B mixed up sometimes.

Re: Faith-based initiatives
The Faith icon!! She's back!! It's you!

When the children are home for the holidays and I retreat into my cave with bottled water and methamphetamines, er, cheese doodles, I may need to emerge, stand in the sun, cry for freedom, and show the crumpled page in my hand to be? Faith bitch slapping Sam for fucking over Buffy with Riley. I know it didn't happen that way, but this is Faith we're talking about.

It is highly possible that I have eaten too many Apple Jacks and watched far too many episodes of South Park tonight.

I always thought Faith was pissed with herself when Buffy jumps her shit about have the SITs out at a bar. Which is why the defense mechanism kicks in, and hence the WORST MOMENT IN BUFFY (aside from Joyce dying) THE INGRATES KICKING HER OUT. I would have punched Dawn in the face when she said, "it's my house, too." Because you are made out of me! ME!! Um, weren't we talking about Faith? I love her. She has pretty hair.

I heart my Faith-hair
actually, it needs to be cut. it is getting way long and gravity is interfering with my layers I need to figure out how to print out the Eliza pic from my icon so I can take it to my hairdresser and say -- I want this!!!

Course I never go anywhere. Though tonight I had dinner with a very successful writer who looks a wee bit like ScruffyWes. And with an actually Scruffy Wes (Roomie's fiance, who hasn't bothered to shave lately). Oh, there were other people there too. It was a class and shit. Anyway, my hair looked like crap. Needs a cut.

What was I saying? Oh -- Faith. That kicking-Buffy-from the house episode was like the 5th or 6th episode I ever saw, and I knew even then it didn't make the least bit of fucking sense. (unless everybody in the house was being controlled by Jasmine? Was that an option?) Buuuut. . .in retrospect I now see it as a creakily transparent (if I may mix a metaphor) plot device, which existed entirely to set up the scene in "Touched" where Spike finds Buffy in the empty house. And as that scene is THE BESTEST THING EVER and makes me want to eat BOTH of them with a spoon. . .all is forgiven. seriously.

my computer is being a bitch, so I'm actually going to log off and go read a book now. don't laugh, I do it sometimes.

Re: I heart my Faith-hair
I, too, am needing a trim. Not "some" trim. Just making sure we are clear... This popped up mid-laugh. i was checking out "Signs your doc may be in love with you" over at McSweeny's.

1. when you lie on the examination table, he insists on "spooning."
2. during a pap smear, your OB "finds" an engagement ring. Bwah ha ha!

Oh, and I love Faith. i love that scene with Buffy/Spike, too. But I love Principal Wood hinting that the sex was so-so with Faith more.

So good! The Fred snap...so Faith. Just says what's on her mind without really thinking...of course how could she know? But then...*sob* too late, Faith...too late.

Poor Faith. Always a day late and a dollar short. I just remembered the worst "too late" moment. Giles finally forgiving Jenny and heading over to "reconcile with her." Gets me choked up EVERY time.

Oh god...that ep...I can't watch it without crying. Poor Jenny. Poor Giles.

On that note I figure something out. The English characters can't be happy. It's like some evil JW thing...Giles, Spike, and Wes all get put through the wringer when it comes to love and generally life, usually more so then the other characters...I wonder if an English person pissed off Joss once...

Well, you are next up, so that's a good thing, right?
I take it you enjoyed this? 10Q.

Got here via a rec from karabair.

Just wonderful; not sure whether to weep or smile. On the one hand it's nice to see that Faith is finally able to face her and Wes' past. And she does seem to care about Wes, and in some ways it's oddly nice that she just assumes that Wes would have survived this.
But of course, there's this horrible sense that she was just too late. She is assuming they all triumphed and came out smiling - she has no idea of the pain and heartache that came after she left LA.

Bravo!

Oh, thank you! Faith makes me hurt. I'm proud of her for making this step, you know? But it's Faith so it can't work. I loved (and hurt over) the idea of her believing Wes would make it. When she busted (literally) out of jail and commented on how much he'd changed (spoken with admiration)... I knew they were on the road to something like forgiveness.

How awesome of you to come over and give me such terrific feedback!

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.
