(Meta) A Guide to 'Buffy' Ships

20th June 2009 (12:46)
Tags: ,

Apparently there's been a kerfuffle in the fandom these past few days about ships on Buffy. So below the cut I've put together a handy guide to help you recognise them, and know what to avoid:


Buffy/Angel

A sailing ship

Beautiful and romantic at first sight, but also old-fashioned and highly impractical in the real world.


Buffy/Riley

HMS Dreadnought, 1906

Big, slow, clunky and became obsolete very quickly as soon as something better came along.



Buffy/Spike

A nuclear submarine

Lurks unseen beneath the surface for years, but when it makes its presence felt, it can destroy your house or devastate entire nations.

Hee!

But I thought the sub-text was reserved for Spike/Angel?

*groan*

(But Spuffy was subtext for a long time before it finally surfaced...)

Heh. I'm now imagining an accompanying Spuffy PWP where Spike yells "torpedoes away!" at the climax.

Spuffy - destroyer of worlds! by frimfra

Bwah! Fantastic!!!!!

ETA: Buffy/Immortal:

title or description

Somewhat over the top, but caters for your every need, and perfect for an extended cruise around the Mediterranean. (Just don't ask too many questions about the people with the dark sunglasses... *g*)

I think Buffy might agree with your picture in hindsight. ;-)

I was going to ask you about Buffy/Satsu, but then saw Beer Foamy's post. :)

Posted by: StephenT (stormwreath)
Posted at: 20th June 2009 19:18 (UTC)

Did you see my reply to him?

"For Buffy/Satsu, though, I suggest some sort of experimental ship. :-) Preferably flashy and makes a lot of noise but doesn't have much staying power, like a hovercraft or hydrofoil."

Bravo well done, Stephen!

There's a kerfuffle, really?

Posted by: StephenT (stormwreath)
Posted at: 20th June 2009 19:22 (UTC)

Well, apparently yes. I mostly missed it myself, but it seems to have been an argument about "You can't call yourself a true Spuffy fan unless you believe X, Y and Z", which obviously annoyed the people who didn't believe one or more of those things.

Oh, but why only Buffy ships? I think there needs to be more, yes? :P

But f'real, brill job.

Because I ran out of ideas, and there are only so many ways of depicting relationships as oceangoing vessels...

Is that a specific spaceship from a film, or just someone's artwork?
