I have the tenancy to quickly form deep, meaningful relationships with people....wha- No! Not real people, ugh. They are so unpredictable and complicated..no way. I'm talking about fictional people. You know, the kind who are infinitely entertaining, yet require absolutely no input on my part.
Some of my more intimate fictional relationships have involved Harry Potter, SpeedRacer and Theth Dr. Who. I have watched all of their stories evolve and have wished for only one thing. I just wanted them to be happy. To settle down, have a few kids and lead a nice quiet life.
I haven't finished with Buffy yet, but I find myself hoping beyond all hope that she and Angel will find a way to be happy together. Of course if that doesn't pan out I will do the same thong I did at the end of the Series of Unfortunate Events books, make up my own, more acceptable ending and substitute that one for the "published" ending. That's the beauty of having fictional friends, if they disappoint you can just rewrite their stories.
