So that’s my refrain; I live in hell, ‘cause I’ve been expelled from heaven.

"They have no purpose that unites them, so they just drift around, blundering through life until they die, which they know is coming, et every single one of them is surprised when it happens to them. They’re incapable of thinking about what they want beyond the moment. They kill each other, which is clearly insane… and yet here’s the thing. When it’s something that really matters, they fight. I mean, they’re lame morons for fighting, but they do. They never… They never quit. So I guess I’ll keep fighting too."
day 06: favourite non-romatic pairing: Willow & Giles
I also like that the dynamics of the relationship. Because they always should have gotten on well. At the start of the show, they were so unbelievably similar. They had very similar bookish qualities, but also very tight moral compasses. They also both had forays into really terrible magicks that almost destroyed their lives, as a result of being so tightly wound, and being allowed to unwind.
But their lives were kind of opposites. Giles was wild and treacherous early in his life, and realized that this path could lead to no good. He turned himself into the tight-moral-compass guy. Willow was the moral-compass guy early in her life, and was then allowed to unwind later.
