Jaime Bee - I could have sworn I remember reading back in the day that after a point (as Charisma chose to cute her hair first) it was actually TPTB (WB/CW) that made her keep cutting her hair and going blonder. But I could be remembering that wrong.

But whether it was full on Charisma's doing or TPTB kept making it happen I don't understand why. Charisma is gorgeous and still was even with that hair cut (because she's gorgeous in general) but that haircut was not good imo.

Carmen - Can't really comment much on those seasons but if Smile Time is the Puppet episode that episode does look cute. And it would be the only episode in S5 other than YW I might watch.

Longer brunette hair looks a million times better on her!

I multiship Angel a bit but I think Cordy is the one I'd have liked him to end up with. With her, he would smile and laugh rather than being angsty, right from their first encounter on Buffy. Cordy seemed to bring out the best in Angel.

I agree.

I also really loved the Cordy/Angel/Connor (baby) dynamic. They were such a cute little family to me.

Kinky-Cousin - I didn't mind the shorter hair and I also didn't even mind her going lighter/blonder. But that particular style/cut on her was my least favorite and I wish she had stopped before going there.

Don't multiship him but I definitely agree with everything else.

Lysee - I personally am not a fan of Connor (baby or otherwise) but I will admit baby Connor did give us a really cute dynamic that I loved. But honestly I still would have preferred if the Connor storyline never happened. Or at the very least he had remained a baby.

I agree it wasn't one of the show's finest moments. It went downhill very quickly. For me it was a culmination of Cangel's attraction developing over the season and the idea that they could have a normal life together, raising a family. If anything, I think that it was nice seeing Cordy get into mommy mode (unlike that disturbing Jasmine/Connor thing in season 4).

I recall that too.

CC hated how long it took to style her super long hair and originally cut it short, but then TPTB kept messing with it cause they couldn't find a style they liked. I don't think the short+blonde was CC's idea.

Tho I loved Cordy's hair in the end of S2. The blonde highlights at that length were cute. And she wasn't too blonde.

Same. I also enjoy BA, but part of me will always see Cordy as Angel's endgame.

YES. Conner never should've grown up. Or baby Conner should've never returned from that hell dimension. BYE.

IDK how anyone could call Dawn annoying when Conner exists.

I hate when I notice my typos after someone quotes it.

Carmen - That's what I remember too.

Same. I actually really liked that look at the end of S2.

Yes! If it just had to happen then he should have remained a baby or never came back and lived happily ever after with that one guy never to be seen again.

Never watched the Buffy episodes (well not that I remember) that had Dawn in them so can't comment but yeah Connor was annoying.

Lysee - I definitely understand and I agree with that aspect of it. It was nice to see and they were such great parents to Connor and worked (of course) so well together. It was nice to see them be that family.

I'm blonde myself but on her I much prefer brunette (blonde highlights are ok I guess). Not that Charisma looks bad because she's a gorgeous woman, but it definitely wasn't her best imo!

I multiship a lot I guess but usually for different phases of a character's life. Like I enjoyed Angel&Buffy's story up till the end of Buffy S3, but not beyond that. I also found his relationship with Darla interesting, but didn't want them to end up together again. Angel and Cordy seemed like they actually had a healthy connection, so they were my endgame hope. Cordy's last episode in Angel S5 nearly made me cry, which I don't do a lot with TV shows!

Pretty much this for me too.

Uuugggh I couldn't stand angsty teenage Connor! I got used to Dawn but Connor was really irritating before he had his memory wiped.

This is pretty similar to me.

I also like Angel/Darla but don't really want them to end up together. It's more like I ship their past.

I'm not, like, vehemently against BA being end game or anything but I do have some difficulty shipping them after ATS S2/BTVS S5. I just find Spuffy & Cangel more interesting at that point.

I much prefer her with darker hair too. Even though yeah I didn't mind and even liked some of the shorter and lighter styles she did. And definitely agree. No matter what they did Charisma always looked beautiful because she's just in general really beautiful. But some of their hairstyle choices were kinda ugh!

I can usually multiship my fave ladies but not really my favorite guys. I don't know why. But especially now a days I do tend to find myself ot3 shipping.

I don't think I enjoyed BA story back. I think it was more whatever to me and didn't mind watching their scenes. But by season 3 I was getting so annoyed and frustrated with that storyline. It was like either get them together or don't. I'm so tired of this back and forth. And now if I go back and watch I don't even like to watch their scenes together.

Darla/Angel are just whatever I guess for me. I don't like them romantically at all but I don't mind their scenes.

I agree about Angel/Cordelia. They had the most realistic and amazing growth of the 3 couples.

Carmen - I think I'm one of the few CAers who doesn't also ship Spuffy.

I'm like that too. I'm more, like, idk, possessive? of the men.

Season 2 is my favorite season of ATS and the beige Angel story line made fore great TV. Plus the episode where Dru & Darla tore up LA was epic.

(why is Vamp!face Angel hot? )










(Wet DB ) Also she's worried about her Champion

Really? I feel like every CAer I talk to about it also ships Spuffy. And so many of the AC fics I read tend to have at least a little something with Spuffy. Even if it's just a mention. But maybe they're just staying in canon.

Yeah maybe that's it. I like for the guys to only be with one (unless I ot3 but sometimes even then it doesn't necessarily mean I ship all 3 even if I ot3 them). Also when it comes to jealousy I much prefer to see the guys jealous.

I agree. As much as S3 started off strong and I love all the AC stuff we get S2 is also my favorite season. And I really wish they had explored Beige Angel more and him with the gang.

I love how worried about him she was.

I knew fans back in the day on FF that shipped SpuffCan.

We had a thread on ATS board called Mover's On.

I remember a thread here (or another forum) asking if all CA fans shipped Spuffy too and I a lot of people posted saying they were aiight with Spuffy but only shipped CA or something.

I feel like in fic putting her with Spike is just convenient and not necessarily bc the writer ships them. Though of course, plenty ship SB & CA. Now I'm rambling

I remember when we coined the term SpuffCan

Yeah, S3 starts fantastic then takes a 360 into madness and the show never quite comes back from it.

S1 is solid but the show is still finding it's footing.

S2 has the perfect blend of everything.

Plus I much preferred the fang gang pre-Fred because I hated the love triangle. Sorry Fred. You could've been a good character but they used you to create man-angst.




Worried about Angel in the ring. But is it Angel? Is it?
