You guys? I made a mistake. I did not do Buffy a proper justice in yesterday’s post. I’m regretting my actions! Because I was so busy bragging about my relationship with The Walking Dead I completely neglected my most favorite show even though the post was intended to be all about Buffy. As the Beach Boys say, it wouldn’t be right to leave your best girl home on a Saturday night. Which has something to do with something.
Maybe I’m a little embarrassed as to the extent of my fan-ishness? It encompasses all the comics as well as following Sarah Michelle Gellar on twitter. Who is super funny. I feel like a creeper admitting this. I read Buffy fanfiction. That is officially my deepest darkest secret. DON’T JUDGE ME!
I even have a Buffy fanfiction plot idea which is TOP SECRET but Cee and Dora will be glad to know it’s Spike based.
I suppose there are further depths to fall in the Buffy abyss. I could go to a panel or something. Or tattoo “what the what” across my forehead. Fortunately my life is not quite at that point. Yet. But I am on the BTVS call list at my local comic book store Comix Experience which is in and of itself mortifying.
So today’s Buffy question is circa season 4: When Spike (spoiler) escapes the Initiative, he already has the chip, how is he able to punch the various scientists and soldiers during the escape? Not even two minutes later in the episode he attacks Willow and clutches at his head in pain. What the what.

If you’ve been following my blog for more than a month you probably already know two things about me.
1. I love to write about The Walking Dead and 2. I like to list all the times I’ve written about TWD.
BOOM. Here I answered Dora & Cee’s TWD questionnaire
Here I found TWD jewelry for Dora
Here is about the Talking Dead
Here is the lame fan merch sold on AMC
And finally here, the Sex Ed Fail blog that started it all.
But what you all don’t know? Before TWD, there was Buffy the Vampire Slayer. And you know what? It’s still just as good as back in college when I eagerly anticipated each Tuesday night’s new episode. I love it. And I’m rewatching it right now.
Which leads me to my deep Buffy question of the hour.
What’s the Buffy team’s deal with the name William and its derivatives anyways? They’ve got 1. Spike AKA William the Bloody NÉE William Pratt 2. Angel NÉE Liam (Irish for William) 3. Willow AKA Will 4. Willy the Snitch and in the comics there’s 5. Billy the Boy Slayer. Does anybody know? Because that is a lot of Will-ish names for one show.
Before anybody says anything: Yes “five by five” is a Faithism but my other Buffy needlepoint (beep me if there’s an apocalypse) didn’t turn out well.
Yesterday’s post on the the Walking Dead: Sex Ed Fail and an exchange with LoveandFlats on favorite TV shows got me thinking… What other bracelets are out there based on my favorite TV shows? Well, let’s find out!
My very favorite shows are the Walking Dead, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Hannibal, and Justified. Since I already covered the Walking Dead, let’s sub in LoveandFlat’s favorite show Breaking Bad.
First up: BUFFY. I both googled and Etsy-ed, but google just brought me back around to Etsy where I found a lot, A LOT, of very tweeny Buffy charm bracelets. The more uncommon are the cuffs, like this one on sale right now for $13.60 by TheTrendyGeek
Next: HANNIBAL. Surprisingly, Etsy offered more variety in Hannibal bracelet styles though altogether less bracelets. I want to find the most special of the options, though, and it is a $17.10 charm bracelet by FanFayreJewelry
It’s not overcrowded by charms which is how many charm bracelets turn out wrong. The charms include so many nuances of the Hannibal themes: the stag, knives, a clock! So subtle but fantastic. I would definitely wear this.
JUSTIFIED: This show doesn’t have the obsessive fanbase of the other shows. I wasn’t expecting to find much, and I didn’t. There is one single Justified tagged bracelet option but… It’s lovely! Made by ClosetGeekery it’s $20.
Now for you, LoveandFlats, BREAKING BAD: more charm bracelets, more hand stamped silver cuffs but nothing exceptional. Which, a show like Breaking Bad? We’re looking for exceptional, inspired, and cool to wear. And this periodic table of elements for $30 by UniqueArtPendants spoke to me. Too cool for school! Wait, let me correct myself, it is exactly the right amount of cool for school.
