A short entry. I'm not even going to do the little extra bits I usually add to blog posts because I just want to get this down.
This is the last thing I will ever type not having seen the ending of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I am going downstairs right now to grab some snacks and watch the final two episodes.
I'll be the first to admit to being over dramatic and a bit silly.
It sounds stupid and cheesy, I know, to say a TV show (especially one that aired so long ago) can have such an impact on me, but I have the personality that really latches on to characters I can relate with in fiction. I actually believe it's why I want to be a writer myself, so I can try to make other people feel that way as well, because I know how wonderful it can be.
Buffy did this for me better than any other show I've ever seen. This is why I am so emotionally worked up over it being over. That idea of saying goodbye to friends. Letting go of something comfortable and reassuring, something that's been there for me for the last 3-4 months.
But nothing lasts forever. So here goes.
And tonight, right after I finish, I get to celebrate Buffy's 30th birthday with the folks of GeekGirlCon with a party at our local comic shop... so the timing couldn't be better. :)
