Dear flist

Why do I periodically get the urge to post really controversial stuff that generates over 120 comments full of really impassioned arguments? Am I mad, or just a masochist?

Love
Me

On a much-needed lighter note, gabrielleabellewas asking "If Spike was Yoko at the end of S4, that makes the core Scoobies The Beatles. Who's Ringo?" Fortunately, this previously unknown photograph from 1963 gives us the answer:

John, Paul, George and Xander

Does that mean Angel has Wings?

*groans*

You'll notice I made Buffy John, because Spike was Yoko and also because Buffy got shot one time. Willow is the sentimental one who goes on to achieve godlike power when she's ancient and haggard. Giles is good at playing the guitar. Xander... need I say it?

Don't Willow and Buffy look like a 1920s lesbian couple in that photo?

Ha! I love it, especially the part about Spike being Yoko.

Personally, I love your thinky thoughts. It's people like you who're keeping the fandom alive and fresh.

It's odd, I suppose, because if this were a web forum I'd make my original post, and then skim the resulting debate and maybe add a few comments here and there. But because it's my LJ I feel I have to read and reply to every single comment people make, and when there are over 60 of them it gets kinda exhausting...

Thanks!

Okay, this pic is just the most adorable thing ever. & I'm pretty sure I agree with your choices, too.

Very cute with the 'other' on the drum, too! I didn't pick that up till just now.

And please don't stop posting controversial stuff! I love fandom discussions, and you're pretty beast at starting them.

I hear what you mean about having to reply to all of the comments, though.

That's on the original photo, it wasn't me. I just did a Google Image Search for a picture of the Beatles; it's possible that the one I used was actually a group of Beatles impersonators...

It was me who changed the 'B' of 'Beatles' into the Buffy 'B', though. :-)

LOL! Poor Xander, just look at his jealous stare at Giles.

Posted by: StephenT (stormwreath)
Posted at: 29th April 2009 10:16 (UTC)

Jealous? He looks wryly amused to me. :-) (In the original photo of Nicky he's looking in the other direction - towards Buffy, in other words - but I flipped it so that the shadows on everybody's faces were coming from the same direction.)

Xander is lucky: better to be Ringo than Pete Best.

Posted by: StephenT (stormwreath)
Posted at: 29th April 2009 17:47 (UTC)

Jesse was Pete Best, of course. :-)

(And Angel, Cordy, Doyle, Wesley, Gunn and Fred are the Rolling Stones...)

Or maybe Oz should be George: the quiet one who played the guitar and sought answers in Eastern Mysticism. Giles' role is closer to George Martin: the experienced establishment figure who taught them how to record in a studio/fight demons, and brought out their unique talents

I did think about the Giles/George Martin (or Brian Epstein?) connection, but the original question was specifically equating the Core Four = the Fab Four.
