Something familiar, something peculiar

“Oh not again,” Buffy muttered. “For the third time this week, NO. I will not donate a lock of my hair for needy orphan demons,” she said, whirling on the bright blue demon that had approached them.

The demon’s shoulders slumped in defeat and his three lower lips jutted out in a reasonable approximation of a pout.

“And don’t you start!” she said, spinning back around at the slight noise that escaped from Giles.

He held up his hands in surrender. “Wild horses couldn’t drag it out of me.”

Something appealing, something appalling

Buffy flipped around again and quickly dodged the thrust of the creature’s arm (tentacle?). She paused for a moment behind a gravestone to admire the demon’s form. At once beautiful and revolting, it certainly gave new meaning to the phrase “drop dead gorgeous.” With a shrug, she buried her dagger in it’s ribcage, right where Giles promised the heart would be.

Something for everyone, a comedy tonight

Breakfast Club?”


Sound of Music?”

“Oh hell no.”

Nightmare on Elm Street?”

“No!” That response came from all corners of the room, and Buffy put her hands on her hips.

“Well, if you guys are going to reject every suggestion I come up with, pick something yourself!”

There was a mad scramble for the video shelf, and Xander finally held up one video in triumph.

Moments later, the sound of coconuts clopping filled the room, and Graham Chapman and Terry Gilliam filled the screen.
