#30dayscreamqueenschallenge Day 20 - TV Horror’s Baddest Bitch... I’m posting a little early tonight, everyone. I’m about to travel for the holiday. My nom goes to #sarahmichellegellar @sarahmgellar as #buffysummers from #buffythevampireslayer "Into every generation a slayer is born: one girl in all the world, a chosen one. She alone will wield the strength and skill to fight the vampires, demons, and the forces of darkness; to stop the spread of their evil and the swell of their number. She is the Slayer."
I love these lines from Out of Mind, Out of Sight. There's a conventional narrative around those that do bad things that doesn't allow for understanding and insight. This moment is particularly interesting because Buffy openly sympathizes with Marcie and takes note of the conscious/unconscious involvement that was contributed by those around her. At this point, Marcie isn't simply a cardboard-cutout villain. She's a real person with real feelings. For many, It seems that expressing sympathy for people like Marcie is making excuses for them, which isn't the case at all. Marcie made her choice, but understanding why she made those choices is important, too. The reality is, there are a lot of Marcies out there waiting to explode.
I ❤ these two so much. You guys don't even know how huge fans me and my sis are of Buffy. I am so glad my older sis passed on the obsession of one of thee best shows ever created onto me haha. We can quote and remember every line of every episode. We've yet to come across huge Buffy fans that can understand/get our references... LOL I remember back then my sister would not give a shit about her year 12 exams and instead of studying would wait up to 10:30pm for a new episode on tv...bloody channel 7. And no, we couldnt figure out how to tape over a show yet...so thus we had to watch it when it aired. Sigh. #90s#sarahmichellegellar#alysonhannigan#buffythevampireslayer#buffysummers#willowrosenberg
