Years ago a friend of mine reintroduced me to a show I had not seen since I was a child. It is one of the things I am most thankful for. There is something magical about being connected to a fandom like the Buffyverse. I have seen every episode countless times and have completely lost myself in the process. I know that I have annoyed multiple friends and loved ones with my incessant praise for this 14 year old television show, but it has helped me and given me so much happiness that I could never explain. I understand that it’s crazy to credit BTVS for helping me understand myself and the world around me. I know that I’m insane to truly feel like the characters are part of my life and even a part of myself, but that’s exactly how it is.
Saturday I had the pleasure of having a photo op with James Marsters at Chicago Comic Con. Even though I was with him for only a minute, it was such a mind numbing experience and Iget to keep this hilariously beautiful photograph forever.
