I feel like a Gavin DeGraw song. So, that's weird.

I really thought I'd moved on from caring one whit about Spike & Buffy. However, judging by the way my heart thumped and I got a little happy flutter in my stomach when I read the following, I was so, SO wrong. I WILL LOVE THEM FOREVER AND EVER.

Katie Lucas: Who did you like together with Buffy the most: Angel, Riley, or Spike?

Joss Whedon: You know what, I liked Spike. With Angel it’s too “Romeo and Juliet”. Which means, as soon as it happens you’re bored. Riley, you know he was a well-adjusted person who loved her in a much, much healthier way than the other two guys. Nobody wants to see that. With Buffy and Spike, they had a real Beatrice and Benedick kind of relationship, in “Much Ado About Nothing”. I think with the wedding, she would have tried to do something fast, but he would have made it elaborate and done everything wrong. It would have been extraordinarily counter-intuitive, and awesome!

Q&A excerpted from this interview at A BLOG

Since I'm so out of the Spuffy (the entire Buffy-verse, really) fandom loop, I can only assume this has already made the rounds (probably twice!), so apologies to anyone who's seen this a bazillion times. (I like that "bazillion" doesn't trip the spell check feature. Bajillion. But that one does. Huh, how 'bout that.)
