Here we are, for those of you following my obsession with all things Buffy and my quest to get everyone to watch, and therefore fall in love with it. The most romantic speech in the world (and i'm just annoyed that Joss thought of it before me!).

I've been alive a bit longer than you, and dead a lot longer than that. I've seen things you couldn't imagine, and done things I prefer you didn't. I don't exactly have a reputation for being a thinker. I follow my blood, which doesn't exactly rush in the direction of my brain. So I make a lot of mistakes, a lot of wrong bloody calls.
A 100+ years, and there's only one thing I've ever been sure of: you.

(Buffy looks away)

Hey, look at me. I'm not asking you for anything. When I say, "I love you," it's not because I want you or because I can't have you. It has nothing to do with me.
I love what you are, what you do, how you try. I've seen your kindness and your strength. I've seen the best and the worst of you. And I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are. You're a hell of a woman. You're the one, Buffy.

(quietly) I don't wanna be the one.

I don't wanna be this good looking and athletic. We all have crosses to bear.


  1. Hey K8! Loved that speech. Why can't all guys say things like that?

    One of my favorite speeches too. I don't know why men won"r say things like that except as my sons say, "We are afraid we will be laughed at".

    I love Spike too, just like many other demented women. Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your "Lies my LOver Told Me" series. I'm not usually crazy about AU, but these ares some of the best I've read, and I've read a lot.

    I draw, not as much as I used to. But I still keep my hand in. Pen name Dragon. Thanks for the hours you put in to write the stories.


  3. i like that speech, too bad you generally won't a guy who'll say that for real.
