Many heroes lived before Agamemnon, but they are all unmourned, and consigned to oblivion, because they had no bard to sing their praises.
Horace (Quintus Horatius Flaccus)
This community was set up to remember Angel, the character ... the man ... the vampire ... the hero and all those who fought alongside him ... all heroes in their own right!
So be their bard and sing their praises, don't let them go unmourned, don't consign them to oblivion. Heroes should be remembered!
Go! Join! Now! It will make you feel better. Trust me.
I'm going to immerse myself in fic today. Wallow in it. Roll around naked with it on my bed. . .well, not really, cuz. . .paper cuts anyone? In bad spots?
I think I'm done crying. For the moment. I'm dling 'Not Fade Away' as we speak. . .and I don't think I'll be able to not rewatch it. It was Amazing. Honest. Real. Beautiful. Painful. And as others have said, The Best End To A Series That I've Ever Seen.
When it was over last night, I asked my middle child, Lisa, the one who has watched every show with me, every DVD with me, every rerun with me. . .if she had any thoughts. . .
She said "I can't tell you right now, or I will not be able to stop crying."
This. From a 14 year old girl. So you tell me? Did this show reach over the generations? Did it touch more than just one age group? Did the WB just not totally fuck up?
