Bitches, I had to weigh in.  
The Five Stages of Buffy Season 8

1. Denial:
Okay, there is no way this is real. Joss would never make Dawn a centaur or have Buffy robbing a bank. Warren is alive, no, can't be. And now Buffy is flying. This has to be a joke. Everyone will wake up, it will be a spell.

2. Anger:
What the holy hell? Buffy...kills a Dark Willow..in the future? And Angel is killing Slayers?! And oh hell no, Buffy is having sex with the SOULED murderer guy?! Who do I have to cuntpunch to get some answers around here?!

3. Bargaining:
If I just read a few more issues, just buy a little more merchandise, it's going to get better. I'll write more fanfic, please, if it just gets better. Joss is god, Joss is god, Joss is god. God would never hurt us like that, not if we were being good fans. We will be better fans.

4. Depression:
God, these comics suck. The fandom is exploding. I just want to crawl into a corner and cry. I need some Ben and Jerry's Chunky Monkey and a Nora Ephron movie.

5. Acceptance:
Joss used his residuals to take up crack smoking. Bring on the sparkles! (Or the penguins!)

Totally awesome and appropriate icon. :)

I figured we could all use a laugh here.

I've been on stage 5 since ATS S4 but I had a fall back to stage 2 last month. Now I'm back to stage 5.

Hey, you wanna go disco dancing? Come join me on stage 5. We have cookies, a laser light show, and half naked go-go dancers. :)

Ah, yes, the theodicy of fandom. "If Joss is good, then why is there Centaur!Dawn?" "Because of free will." "Uh... free will?" "Yes. Jeanty's willingness to work for free."

Your icon is very appropriate and made of epic win.

LOL Unfortunately, I have a feeling fans on Stage 1 are saying that exact thing. :)

I got onto, "I'm not giving Dark Horse another penny", pretty early on, after Buffy killed Dark Willow for me.

I was disinterested in Angel: After the Fall when he became human. Maybe if I wear my read shoes, pat three times and snap my fingers they will disappear.
Kellyxlivvielockex on March 4th, 2010 05:25 pm (UTC)
I think with all the contraversy the new comics are causing, it won't be going away anytime soon.

I actually like the Angel comics a lot better. I don't have as much beef with real Angels and werecreatures as I do with Centaur!Dawn and Sparkly!Angel.

looooool ILU

I'd been hoping, hoping, hopiiiiig, up until he said on the record somewhere that he'd scrap everything in the comics if he could get a Buffy movie going and show us his true direction.

That chipped away at a looooot of my faith in his integrity; and even more at my ability to take these comics seriously. Like, they're cracky character art, not canon.
Kelly: Buffy: Ozxlivvielockex on March 4th, 2010 05:26 pm (UTC)
ITA 100% with everything you said. Though honestly, I didn't think he had much integrity to begin with. Early on in the shows, he said he would sacrifice characterization to tell a good story. And that was like okay then, well F.U. too then. LOL

Ah, I see you are still on Stage 4, depression. LOL Come over to cracky funland Stage 5 where nothing shocks anymore and we all fly around on unicorns that shoot rainbow lasers out their asses. (Just wait, it'll be in a future issue. LOL)

Penguins rock.

And so do you. Very funny. (And funny because it's true!)
Kelly: Buffy: Spuffy Lookxlivvielockex on March 4th, 2010 05:29 pm (UTC)
At this point, with the outpouring of the Penguin!Fic, I would not at all be surprised if Spike showed up, turned Buffy into a penguin with some magic spell, and whisked her away to an ice castle on the south pole.

I'd read that!
Rebcake: guild_see_no_avatarrebcake on March 4th, 2010 04:47 pm (UTC)

Comics? What comics? Friends don't let friends take comics seriously.

Joss doesn't know us like he used to know us. I just want to be happy...
Kelly: Buffy: Spike Defxlivvielockex on March 4th, 2010 05:30 pm (UTC)

If KY sold lube for all the wank going on in Buffy fandom right now, they'd never have to sell another tube again. LOL

Then again, it's spring. Flowers bloom, weather warms, BTVS Fandom wanks. It's a yearly thing, like the swallows returning to Capistrano.
Katie: London buskatiesangels on March 4th, 2010 06:21 pm (UTC)
I've never bought a comic. I'm glad now, very glad. It can't just be crack they've smoking when they came up with crap like that. Centaurs, jeez.

I quite like the 'Ignorance is Bliss' approach. Those comics don't exist in my world.
Kelly: Buffy: Hungry and Hornyxlivvielockex on March 4th, 2010 06:26 pm (UTC)
My theory is that this is fanfic that Dawn or Andrew is writing. LOL Oh wait, that takes me back to Stage 1.

Bad Kelly, bad. I must get back on my unicorn and ride back to Crackland!

If you make it so Stage 5, let our Crackland Squad know and they will send a unicorn of your choice to come pick you up!

kudagirl: snerkkudagirl on March 5th, 2010 01:25 am (UTC)
I bought a few comics and was bored to tears. Then I read online about Buffy flying and was WTF!

Now I just roll my eyes and read fan fic. Joss may be going to the dark side, but I'll just stick my fingers in my ears and sing LaLaLaLaLa till he screws over the Bangel fans. Cause sex in Whedonverse means bad things to come soon.

Love your take on this.
Kelly: Buffy: Spike Defxlivvielockex on March 5th, 2010 01:58 am (UTC)
I don't think it's the dark side as much as it's the full on WTF crack smoking side. LOL

Thank god for fanfic. THANK GOD. If it wasn't for 1. fanfic and 2. all the freaking incredible people I've met, I would have jumped ship a while ago.

Me: BtVS Buffy Xander Comicsoftly_me on March 5th, 2010 06:18 pm (UTC)
Bwahahaha! I actually really appreciate the comics. It's just like ordinary BtVS, but on crack. (I probably wouldn't be so fond of them if it weren't for all the Buffy/Xander goodness. Finally, I have something to work with when I write fics.)

And, the Buffy/Angel nonsense is going to go badly. There is no happiness in BtVS - tv or comics.
Kelly: Buffy: Fuffy Comicsxlivvielockex on March 16th, 2010 05:42 pm (UTC)
At least you're on stage 5 and see that they are total crack, despite the B/X goodness. LOL But I'm kind of waiting for the big time crash cause you know it's coming and it's going to cause some seriously more epic wank than this has so far.
Gehayi: buffy and kendra (xjubesx)gehayi on April 12th, 2010 07:15 am (UTC)
My philosophy is twofold:

1) The comics are crackfic.

2) Crackfic can be ignored (unless you read it because it makes you laugh).
Kelly: Buffy: Bumpxlivvielockex on April 12th, 2010 05:13 pm (UTC)
LOL I could not agree more. Your comment is made of win. :)
Slacker Spice: Shocked Wadsworthslackerspice on May 1st, 2010 09:36 pm (UTC)
So true. So very true.

The sad part is that I was more or less stage 5, but the title of the latest comic ("Them F***ing") has caused me to relapse into stage 2.

*sigh* I think I need to go try my hand at penguin!fic...
Kelly: Buffy: Bumpxlivvielockex on June 16th, 2010 07:56 pm (UTC)
Sorry I'm just now replying. I didn't get the notification for this comment.

I kept relapsing too but I think I'm firmly in stage 5, only cause we have unicorns. How can you relapse when you get a unicorn of your own color?

Everyone needs to try their hand at penguin!fic. LOL
treadingthedarktreadingthedark on May 27th, 2010 02:25 pm (UTC)
Heh. I don't know how I missed this post. You nailed it perfectly! Thanks.
So much wrong. Even the title "Them Fucking" is like spit in the face. This is what Buffyverse is reduced to? Yikes.
Kelly: Buffy: Spike Defxlivvielockex on June 16th, 2010 07:57 pm (UTC)
Sorry it took me so long to reply, I didn't get a comment notification for this!

Well, there is one LJ user, who's name escapes me at the moment, that said "It's all about Buffy's vagina" when the show was still on. It looks like they are really hammering that home with the comics. LOL

I wonder if the winner gets to have it bronzed?
all_choseny on June 16th, 2010 01:39 pm (UTC)
Oh I got to this really late. This is awesome. I happen to like the comic's. But only because I love Buffy and it was nice to see her story continue. Except...it really isn't her story.

Now I kind of wish there wasn't a comic.
Kelly: Buffy: Beneath You Spuffyxlivvielockex on June 16th, 2010 07:58 pm (UTC)
No worries! Coming to it late is still awesome. Hopefully it's still as funny now as when I wrote it (that was before all the glowy universe destroying sexxings)
