Summary: Andrew, Riley, and Kennedy are three of the most disliked characters in the Buffyverse. In a show filled with wonderful characters, what went wrong with them?
Spoilers: Through the Buffy season 8 comics and AtS season 5
Word count: Approx. 6,600, excluding works cited list and appendices.
Notes: Written for the [livejournal.com profile] buffyversemetathon from a prompt by [livejournal.com profile] lusciousxander, "Riley, Kennedy, Andrew. What made these characters unpopular?" Also, there are a few images in the text, but I don’t think they’ll be too draining on dial-up.

Andrew, Riley, and Kennedy: What the Heck Was Joss Thinking?



During its seven year run, Buffy the Vampire Slayer created a veritable pantheon of characters who were taken to the hearts of fans. )

I've noticed a few people are re-posting their very first fics, and this one was mine, written on Dec. 12, 2000, while my very first college class was taking an open-book, open-note final that involved writing a paragraph. It's not pretty. I mispell Dru's name. I get the nationality of the monks wrong. I call the duster a coat. Spike is a Cockney. Let's just say I've come a ways. :)

It was a lovely, Christmas-card-perfect scene. In the still night air, pretty little lights twinkled from the eaves of the suburban houses. The scent of roast turkey wafted from open kitchen windows. Since this was California, there was no snow; however, one lone figure was softly humming “White Christmas” as he made his way towards the Summers’s home, his black leather coat billowing behind him. Spike was in an unusually good mood. )

There was a rather heavy dose of Wes-hatred for a while circa the Connor incident, and old [livejournal.com profile] venus_blue mentioned that her only Wes ship was Wes/Boot to the Head. Hence, I wrote it.

I have no idea where I got the idea to write this from, but what they hey. I thought I might use it as a writing guide over at Charm School. It's a general breakdown of rules covering vampires in the Buffyverse. It's also long. And possibly obsessively detailed. Probably boring. If I messed up anything badly, go on and say so.

Okay... very nervous on this one. I haven't seen the masterlist up yet, but as I'm going to be gone/working my tail off most of the day, I thought I'd stick this up now.


Written in response to Tania’s ([livejournal.com profile] itsabigrock) request in the LiveJournal essayathon for the following: Darla Character essay - focusing on her views of other women as influenced by her upbringing in 17th century Europe/America, and her views of men as influenced by her profession while human. Examples of how these things affected her relationships with Angel and of Spike/Dru would be great.
