Mini memespam
Well, when I first checked, memes were ahead. I will come up with a good fanfic rant this afternoon. Meanwhile, memes were thin on the ground today--I only found four (one of which I'd already done) in the first 100 entries in my f-list. But, here they are!

Classic lit, nicked from cinderjewel

Lord of the rings
J.R.R. Tolkien: Lord of the Rings. You are
entertaining and imaginative, creating whole
new worlds around yourself. Well loved, you
have a whole league of imitators, none of which
is quite as profound as you are. Stories and
songs give a spark of joy in the middle of your
eternal battle with the forces of evil.

(And I only had to re-do it once. The first one said, "Perry is love." That's more or less a whopper of a lie, so I had to do it again!)

Buffy scene meme, nicked from hobviously

Five Scenes of BtVS I am Grateful For:
(No particular order, except the order I think of them in.)

  1. Post-chipping Spike's attack on Willow, when he discovers he can't bite her and she blames it on herself for being unattractive. This is a scene that does one of the things the series does best--realistic treatment of the surreal. Willow, angsting on about not being attractive--who can't relate?--then realizing when she tells him, "Maybe if we wait a half an hour..." she's telling him to try killing her again, at which point she whacks him with something. I love both Willow and Spike as characters, and this scene in particular is great between them, and despite its kind of macabre and dangerous nature, it's hilarious. Okay, because it's macabre and dangerous.

  2. I love the "Restless" speech ("I walk. I talk..." etc), but just to be different, I'm going to go with the scene where Buffy walks in on Riley and Adam plotting world domination. The dream logic is perfect, and it shows that despite Riley's niceness, Buffy subconsciously doesn't count on him. And Adam's line, when she asks what his real name is and he says, "Before Adam? Not a man among us knows..." (Or whatever. Don't have it memorized.) And then Riley comes through in the end, reminding her that she's looking for her friends and getting her away from that creepy face-paint clay. Just a well-done sequence.

  3. "Take all that away and what do you have left?"
    "Me."
    Brilliant. The best duel in the series, between Buffy and Angel at the end of S2, when he has her cornered, and after a season of often feeling like a failure, she rises up and finds her power... and the strength to kill him when she needs to do it. I was glad in S7 when Xander tried to tell her that she gave free passes to the men in her life and she reminded him that she killed Angel.

  4. Willow and Xander at the bluff, in "Grave" (S6). I loved the Willow/Xander friendship in all of its permutations, but they seemed to have spent very little time with each other when they were paired off with Tara and Anya respectively. (They hung out fine when they were paired off with Oz and Cordy! What gives?) But that scene, where he goes after her and tells her to kill him first, and that he loves her and if the world's going to end, he'd rather be with her than anywhere else... Just beautifully played, and possibly the only scene that could make me love S6.

  5. "Can we rest now?"
    Guh. Season 7, "From Beneath You." Spike deliberately burning himself by draping his bare arms and chest over the cross, asking for forgiveness and grace. I thought S7 was largely weak, but that one moment hit genuine art. I don't think I've ever seen religious iconography used better on television.


There are tons of other scenes, and a different morning might net a different top five, but that's where my brain went.
