Sonnetizing Buffy's situation after "Normal Again" (Hold the mayaroza<grin>)


BEYOND "NORMAL AGAIN" [or] FREEDOM: Buffy's, Whedon's, and Ours
Posted by: forensicpopouri - Mar 19, 2002, 5:53 PM

NOTE: I just inhaled some strange gas down in the
sewers, and suddenly find myself scribbling random
Buffy thoughts in Shakespearean sonnets . . . Don't think
I can stop myself . . . Oh no . . . here it goes again...



I ASK YOU: Ever have a lucid dream?

A dream you know's a dream -- where you control

whatever happens. Although this might seem

off topic, I refer to Whedon's goal . . .


. . . in letting Buffy's storyline appear

to slip into a crazed trajectory.

ALTHOUGH some fans aren't bothered, some have fear

that Sunnydale was "just" insanity.


AND that would make them mad -- 'cause they believed.

Now, I don't know how things will all play out,

But Buffy choosing Sunnydale relieved

her from "her destiny" that held such clout.


Whatever happens now is in her hands.

No more a pris'ner to "the world's" demands.


Hmmm, what the heck does that mean?
Sniffing strange sewer gas will do it every time.


you speak

Momentarily poking his head out of a manhole . . .

Yep, I too like the possibilities/implications of "Normal Again."

I sort of gave a little cheer after the last ten seconds
of the ep that "caused so much discussion." But what do I know. <smile>

And no . . . I don't believe in rewriting. (Unlike all the writing
teachers who shake their fingers and tell you that that's what
writing is.)

And just as quicky as he appeared . .. he's off again.



do you rehearse the verse?

Very cool rhyming, asking some good questions. I kind of hoped that the schizophrenic Buffy was the real one. Would love to see what kind of world she lived in as a real girl. anyway, rhyme on. you do it good.
