(Meta) Buffy/Faith - it's not just me...

This amused me. :-)  For all you doubters who never saw any subtext between Buffy and Faith on the show... (you know who you are):


Eliza Dushku posted on Twitter last week that she was planning her Halloween costume, and the following conversation resulted.

# Random Twitter person 1: Would it be really ironic if you went as Buffy? Maybe not.

# Eliza: I did her once. It was enough.

(Five minutes later, a hasty amendment...)

# Eliza: I PLAYED her once.

# Random Twitter person 2: SO TOTALLY think Buffy and Faith shuda hooked up... for at least ONE episode. Dont YOU ? ;)

# Eliza: U never saw lost episode of Buffy?

Lost? I'm sure I remember that episode. Can't fathom why it's not on the DVDs, but I definitely remember it. :-)

The master tape got worn out through over-playing by the Mutant Enemy staff, so they weren't able to transfer it to DVD. :-)

"I just love to dance" = actual Eliza quote that seems relevant. :-)

'Course I would say that, wouldn't I.

I remember there was an interview once where Eliza was asked about any subtext going on between Buffy and Faith and she admitted that she realized it herself and often played on it.

In the same way, you can sometimes see James teasing Nicky during a scene by standing just a bit too close or running his eyes up and down his body.

Same sex flirting is fun!

Re: 'Course I would say that, wouldn't I.

In the 'Bad Girls'commentary thare's a remark that Eliza kept on putting in all the subtext and the directors just "forgot" to stop her... :-)

Reminds me of an interview I read with Sam Raimi about Xena, in which the interviewer asked very obliquely about “fans reading a subtext into the show.”

Raimi answered it head on. As I remember it (and I'm sorry I cannot find the original reference) he said: You're asking if Xena and Gabrielle are lovers. Now I'm not saying they are. But if fans are seeing that in the show, it's because we put it there. If you prefer to believe that they're just Really Good Friends, we're never going to have the show directly contradict you. But if you prefer to believe that they are lovers, then we are going to give as much to enjoy as we can manage.

I think Joss described his own show as BYOS - Bring-Your-Own-Subtext. But in the later seasons, they decided to just go straight ahead and be open about it...

Eliza wound up being a vampire for Halloween. And we all know Buffy has a thing for vampires.

Ooh...

She is way eviler than Faith or, dare I say it, than Joss, ain' she?

Can you imagine the fanfic that's being written as we speak :-)

Grins, but still won't be rushing to read it.

Thanks for pimping this,
Too Funnee!

I think that Faith/Buffy fanfic has already been written in copious multitudes...

Wasn't too clear there, was I?

I was meaning ED/SMG RP-fics...

Unrelated to your post, but I thought you might be interested in this discussion of Latino characters in BtVS.
