I love this cause you can clearly see the way that both Faith and Buffy view the world around them and themselves. Buffy, ever the champion of light and goodness, assumes that everyone around her is an innocent flower until they prove to her otherwise. After all the awful shit she’s seen Buffy still has hope that the people she has risked her life for everyday for the past 4 years deserve the sacrifices she and the people around her have made.
Then we have Faith, who shows a rare moment of honesty here, telling Buffy that she basically has no faith(pun not intended) in people. She doesn’t trust anyone, cause time after time she’s been let down by others. She doesn’t look at the world the same way Buffy does, where Buffy chooses to see the good Faith doesn’t think there is any. Just like how Buffy keeps trying to find the goodness in Faith, but Faith can only see her own faults and darkness.
They really are two sides of the same coin. The light and the dark. I truly believe that even thought they think they weren’t supposed to exist together that they’d have both been lost without the other. Buffy never would have learned from watching Faith’s mistakes, and Faith would have died without Buffy.
” your otp is what you are subconsciously looking for in a relationship “
I suddenly understand everything.
Ugh no. If that were the case. I’m looking to date a blonde self-righteous mostly heterosexual woman who hates my guts most of the time and barely trusts me. Also that would mean inside I’m either deeply disturbed cause of all my past relationships or I’m like two seconds from loosing control and killing people.
I can honestly say that is something I am actively not looking for.
I swear to God, if you tell anyone about last night, I will kill you.
