I just re-watched Hell's Bells, and realized it's a really good episode. It's also one of the more painful episodes, for me at least, and I hate Xander in it, but it has lots of great scenes. Among these there's the Spike/Buffy scene, and that one made my internal list of most favorite scenes I think, I absolutely adore it. The tone, the honesty, the acting, everything about it is perfect. So, I made a picspam! My first picspam ever, which I use as an excuse for its badness, but here it is.( she seems like a very nice attempt at making me jealous )
Apart from the parts with Riley and Sam I found I did actually like it more then I thought. Willow was cute and Dawn was nice and Xander/Anya was Xander/Anya. There was shirtless!Spike which the shallow parts of me always appreciate, and there are good things happening with Spike/Buffy. I think Buffy breaking off the relationship is necessary at this point, for her, but I do not like that it's Riley who does it, like he's so perfect. And the whole Spike-is-the-Doctor is just ridiculous and doesn't make the least bit of sense. Also, JM is so much love. The things he can do with his face are just amazing. I liked the episode more than I thought (which is pretty common, BtVS just keeps overwhelming me), but Sam made me want to through things at her.
( rambling a bit about S2 and some comparisons between B/A and S/B )
On a completely different note (well still on Buffy I guess), I noticed that all the Initiative boys have guest starred on Castle, which I found kind of funny. First Bailey Chase (Graham), then Marc Blucas (Riley) and now Leonard Roberts (Forrest), and yes, I squee every time someone from the Whedonverse guest stars on anything, I'm silly that way. Also, seasonal_spuffy has begun, yay!
Yesterday, after watching Monday's episode of HIMYM, I really felt like watching more comedies, and since I've been meaning to watch Community for a while now, I saw the Pilot. And then I saw some more. Like, a lot more.
I didn't really like the Pilot, well, it wasn't bad, bud didn't wow me or anything, but I still felt like giving it another shot. One episode turned into two turned into three and now I've watched 16 episodes in two days, and it's been like the only thing I've done these days. Obviously, I like it. I like it a lot. And I hate that I always miss out on the beginnings of these shows. Seriously, why can't I catch anything from th beginning? Maybe I'll do that more now, since I'm definitely more involved in fandom now. Anyway, I have thoughts.

There's been fic-reading in the week too, pretty much of it, and not that much TV (until my Community-obsessing). I really have to get back to watching Castle, I'm on a mini-hiatus right now it seems. I'm at a Buffy episode in my BtVS/AtS re-watch though, but it's As You Were, and I have issues with that episode. And then there's more episodes of pain. And Angel S3. But I am looking forward to continue that re-watch anyway, as well as the S2 I am one with the family that probably will be continuing this week.
Oh my God, I love their relationship soo much, totally my favorite thing ever about Castle (even though there are lots of other awesome things, their relationship is so epic). Their dialogue, their banter and their love is just the sweetest and funniest thing ever. Also, it reminds me a huge lot about the relationship I have with my dad. For the most time in fiction I feel that there are more Father/Son and Mother/Daughter dynamics, and I definitely connect more with my dad than my mom, so it's really nice to have such a great Father/Daughter relationship.
Also, SPIKE/BUFFY ARE SO SO SO MUCH LOVE!

Now, I will finish this rambly (as usual) post, with basking in the glory that is no school tomorrow and that I get to sleep in the morning. *happy sigh*
I got Mockingjay yesterday! Woo! The third part in the Hunger Games trilogy, of which I've read the first two ones. I've read about half of it, so far, and it's starting to get exciting around now.
A few thoughts so far:
( Spoilers for the Hunger Games )
I also watched the pilot of No Ordinary Family today, since it seemed like a show I'd like.
( Spoilers for the pilot of NOF )
Also, I bought Season 2 of BtVS on DVD today! Yay! I'm watching it with my dad, but it goes kind of slow, though he likes it so far (even if we're still at Season 1, which is the worst, at least I think so.
