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.

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

This is so much fun, would've been even more fun, if it wasn't so true, which is so sad...ummm, yeah.

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!

lalalalalalalalalala

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)
Ah, I see you are still on Stage 1. If you want, I can offer you a one time only deal to take you on the back of my unicorn to Stage 5.

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!

I think I went from 2 and straight to 5 at around the bank robbing stage. :)

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!
