Dear Buffy

I've been putting this off, but we need to talk. (Could you put the crossbow down...please?)

You know I love you. No one can take your place. The Scoobies will be first in my heart, forever.

But lately I've been seeing someone else.

At first I didn't think it was serious. I couldn't help but notice the way they bandied about clever dialogue, twisted fright and funny into a glorious knot, and peppered plots with pop culture references, drawing me in. There were so many similarities to the greatness that is your show, Buffy, and now I have to confess. I'm falling hard for Sam and Dean.
Buffy, if you met the Winchester brothers I think you'd understand. And you certainly would appreciate all the hotness going on there.
You will always be The One, Buffy - the show I know backwards and forwards, that I have each episode all but memorized - but I hope you'll forgive me for making room in my heart for Supernatural.

I wanted to be honest and avoid another Veronica Mars fiasco like before.

Thanks for letting me get that off my chest.

Yours always,



  1. Supernatural started off as this little show that had some fun with monsters and didn't even try to be hip with it's classic rock and flannel shirts. But over five seasons it's turned into a classic. One of my favorite writers (Ben Edlund of The Tick fame) frequently turns in brilliant episodes. I'm glad you're liking it. It only gets better.

  2. You're so right, Shaun. I just started season 4 and have been amazed how the show just gets better all the time.

  3. What a two timer! Bah. :P

    I think I've seen one episode and it was a spoof episode about "Ghost Chasers" or something silly like that.

  4. Andrea, you know where I stand, but I will take your rec and rent Supernatural on Netflix. If it's even close, I'll be happy.

  5. Void - It would be tough to start with Ghost Chasers, as that draws on a lot of the show's already in progress mythos

    Tricia - I'm still #1 Buffy all the way, but what I like about Supernatural is that it has some to the same characteristics of BVS that I love yet offers a fresh take on old folklore. I'm loving it.

  6. I've heard great things about Supernatural. Maybe I should get the DVD's? Yes, I probably should. :)

  7. Elana *coughs* Maybe I just bought them myself.

  8. *newbie alert* I'm following you now based on three things:

    1: Kiersten linked your blog.
    2: You're a writer.
    3: You're a Buffy and Supernatural fan and that makes you awesome.

  9. Welcome Mireyah! Thanks so much for following :)

  10. Hi Andrea :)
    I'm actually just starting to watch the Buffy show due to the massive Twitter-love of the show. I love Supernatural too & wait until you meet Castiele (sp?). I love him. Did you know "Bobby" is on Twitter? (@JumbleJim)
    All the best,
