never play a practical joke on leonard mccoy. he is no fun. you cover yourself in weird berry juice and puff up your cheeks with cotton balls from sickbay and you go at him with zombie arms and it should be hilarious but instead he sticks you thirty times with a hypo and you wake up twelve hours later dazed and confused and he has thirty saved photographs of the enterprise captain purple and drooling and dressed like one of the nurses and he owns you. he owns you for life
Why be a manic pixie dream girl when you can be a manic pixie nightmare goddess?
·what i love about this isn’t that she hits him ·or that she catches him off guard and manages to defend herself or any of that ·what i really love about this is that it would be so easy ·to play this scene as funny ·because we know that buffy has inhuman strength and that this guy’s gonna get his butt handed to him ·and that could be funny ·and completely ruin the seriousness of the fact that he’s trying to rape her ·he clearly doesn’t see it that way ·but obviously from his actions he’s not overly concerned with what she wants so ·but anyway if you look at her face in the last one ·that isn’t a triumphant ‘haha you thought i was a weak girl when really i can beat you up’ ·that’s a ‘you sicken me because if it were anyone else with you in this car what would you have done to her?’ ·and because it’s buffy ·who’s used to defending herself against much stronger people ·of course she’s able to fight back·but really ·if it had been anyone else ·even someone like cordelia ·how would that have turned out? ·and that’s the expression i read on her face here ·she’s looking at him and thinking about what he would have done to some other girl ·and i just·love this show ·okay ·strong like an amazon
Actually to make this even better… all those moves she does… ANYONE can learn and use. Buffy honestly DOESNT have to have super strength to beat this guy up. In fact this is one of the Buffy scenes that any woman in a car getting assaulted could accomplish.
