THE LONG CHAIN HOME

The Long Chain Home is one of the comics from Joss Whedon's Buffy Season 8.  In it Joss retcons The Girl in Question.  Apparently the girl in that episode was aone of seveal look-alikes. This is her story.  From the very first page we are told that this girl dies in the line of duty   She is never given a name or identity, all we really know is that she has taken Buffy's.This story seems to have sparked alot of debate in fandom.  The most common question seems to be whether this girl is a hero or a victim. Her story raises questions about identity and heroism.

stormwreath explores these questions and links them to Joss's Existentialist beliefs.  Here's the link

I remember reading </a></b></a>kita0610  My Angel for the first time.  It had me laughing, and sighing, and tearing up all at the same time.  You'll find yourself noding your head along with each statement.  If you haven't read this essay yet you're in for a real treat.

I figured it would be best to start with the headliner of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.  After seven years of getting to know this character viewer's opinions of Buffy were very diverse for lack of a better word.  People said that she became a shell of her former self and was increasingly unlikeable.  Some people had very valid points.  Buffy was not the same person she was in Welcome to the Hellmouth, but how could she be? This leads me to [info]superplin
She describes her essay as " the most heartfelt defense of Buffy I've ever written, something of a manifesto for the character and her role."  It describes different kinds of heros and why Buffy is the best kind.
