Today in nonsense: Drusilla's costumes The white Regency-esque gown.  I really like this one, because she actually pulls off the shape, the white drives home the whole newlywed vibe of these crazy, 120-years-married kids, and it takes on a retrospective significance as a sign of the purity-obsessed virgin nun that Angel turned back in the 1860s. OTOH, she and Spike probably didn’t pack THAT many copies in the trunk of their car when they rode into Sunnydale, and she wears it for half a...

Sprusilla is possibly my favorite fictional romance of all time. It’s pretty close to being a wish list of my favorite tropes. Plus, you have to respect the couple’s aesthetic, because they have the modern-Goth-immortals thing DOWN. Amy Lee, eat your heart out. With all that said: I can see why, for practical reasons,  BtVS ’s writers would’ve decided to go with Spuffy. As Joss Whedon notes on a DVD featurette (for season 4, I think), Drusilla doesn’t interact well with the larger circle...

I see a lot of fanfic which relies on the premise that Spike is abnormally jealous. Quoth Buffy, “To which I say, ‘Huh?’” He tolerates Dru’s flirting (and probably much more) with Angel until Dru starts snubbing him (”Innocence”; “Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered”; “I Only Have Eyes for You”). Even when he catches her making out with a chaos demon (”Fool for Love”), he doesn’t throw a tantrum. Instead, he asks her why she keeps cheating on him, and seems to want a serious answer....

In season 5′s “Fool for Love,” Drusilla (in a flashback to 1998) explains her cheating on Spike as a result of emotional distance caused by his obsession with and inability to kill the Slayer, despite the fact that the couple is now un-living in Brazil, probably a thousand miles from Buffy or Sunnydale. Dru’s jealousy causes the couple to break up, after which Spike returns to Sunnydale, makes a two failed attempts to kill Buffy, gets chipped, and winds up falling for the Slayer. The rest,...

The general opinion in the pro-Spike  BtVS  fandom seems to be that pre-ensoulment Spike is unique in the degree to which he has retained his humanity, especially in regard to love. Some of the show’s writers even agree: See the commentary for the  Angel episode “Destiny,” which addresses Spike’s development on  BtVS . On first watch, I would have shared this opinion; however, a closer examination of  BtVS  suggests, to me, that Spike is closer to the vampire norm than Angel, usually held up...
