I maintain that “she’s a hero, you see. she’s not like us” is one of the most telling lines about Giles’ characterization in the entire series.
#also this is a tiny little thing #and it holds barely any significence #but to me it’s huge: #Giles puts his glasses on just before he suffocates Ben #He always takes his glasses off for the hard things the disgusting things the bad things #he always takes his glasses off so he doesn’t have to see or face what is going on around him in full focus # he can ignore the horribleness of certain things if it’s fuzzy #but not this one #not this time #and I think that says a lot about Giles too (via ladyknightradiant)
#giles does what needs to be done #he doesn’t want buffy to sacrifice that sort of integrity but he’ll do it because you know he’s probably done it before #he won’t mind coloring his soul a little darker for the sake of hers or the world’s #giiiiiiiiiiles D: (via the-elusive-ollie)
#When this happened I was simultaneously like #GILES NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO #and also #wow that is so spot on for his character I can’t even #And this is where he continually brushes up against Buffy #She will never condone killing for the greater good #And Giles admires that #but also feels that it is foolish #and that it is his duty to act as this kind of protector for her and for the world#this is where the Watcher comes out in Giles the most I think #guh (via 0tterp0p)
If you hate Cordelia Chase, you’re wrong.
literally the best buffy tribute video i have ever seen (if you don’t want to watch buffy after seeing this you need to have a time out)
IF THIS VIDEO DOESN’T CONVINCE YOU TO GO WATCH THIS SHOW IMMEDIATELY THEN YOU LACK A SOUL.
Dear god that was amazing.
OK, yeah, this is pretty awesome.
Oh my god that was beautiful sobbing
Doug Jones. The name doesn’t ring a bell, does it? Probably not. But I’m here to tell you that this bitch is fabulous.
He started out as a mime and a professional contortionist. He got into acting and has acted in over 25 movies and numerous television shows. Still doesn’t ring any bells? Probably because Doug’s gig is characters and crazy ass costumes and shit.
Here’s a picture of him:
Still not look too familiar? Well, maybe you saw Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer?
Or, are you a Buffy fan? Remember the episode “Hush”?
Look familiar now? He’s the one in the front.
Did you like the movie Pan’s Labyrinth?
Did you like the Hellboy movies?
Doug Mother Fucking Jones.
Or, hey! Were you born in the 90’s? Remember the movie Hocus Pocus that would play on Disney Channel every halloween? Remember this guy?:
Yup. Doug Jones.
Still not convinced of how badass this guy is? Here’s some awesome for you.
It took him 5 hours to get into the Pale Man costume in Pan’s Labyrinth, and, once in it, he could only just slightly see out of the nose holes, but he was mostly blind.
And the costume for Fauno himself? Well, he could only just barely see out of the nose holes in that one, too. The actual head part was filled with mechanics that made the eyebrows and ears move. And those mechanics were so loud that he couldn’t hear while inside of it, so he had to memorize Ofelia’s lines as well as his own so that he could say them in his head to know when to talk. Oh, and he doesn’t actually speak any Spanish at all, so he was memorizing both his, and someone else’s lines in a language he couldn’t speak.
Doug Mother Fucking Jones.
WHAT A BRO
