I got to meet one of my heroes today - Anthony Head. He was absolutely lovely, really nice and really friendly. It was worth the queue and the risk of not getting to see him at all.
I make no secret of being a giant, giant Buffy fan. I have been since it first aired and it has been one of the most important tv shows in my life. The character of Giles taught me that not all fathers are shit, abusive arseholes without a shred of love. It was important as I grew up under domestic abuse from a now estranged parent. There was no way I had a hope in hell of developing healthy relationships without being exposed to this character on tv.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer helps me feel when feelings are too overwhelming and painful. It helped me understand myself and it’s helped shape me as I am now.
Side note: my boyfriend @punx_dead_cosplay did an incredible job waiting with me, keeping my morale up and helping as much as he could.
