"This time, I got angry. I’m still angry. It’s a delicious taste that I had only sampled before - always too afraid to swallow a whole mouthful. Not now. Now, by the time it slides down my tongue, I want more. And more. And more. I never understood why Michael stayed so angry all the time but now I do. It consumes you, feeds you, propels and pushes you to do the things you’ve always feared. It keeps your head clear and keeps you from feasting on the lies and niceties they serve up to keep you complacent. Fuck complacency."
I wrote this in a Roswell fic many moons ago. It’s not the best piece I’ve ever written, but I have always liked this part. And it’s something that resonates, reverberates through me all day today.
You have to give credit to the ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ writing team… Years before ‘Doctor Who’ came back to television under the supervision of Russel T. Davies, the good Doctor was being referenced in ‘Buffy’!
That’s some serious geek cred for Whedon and company here. ‘Buffy’ was a U.S mainstream t.v show, referencing another show from the U.K that most viewers had no knowledge about at the time.
So when did these awesome references happen? Let’s see…
1. This first one could be a coincidence, but I somehow doubt it. The big villain in the first season of Buffy was called… The Master!
That’s right, the same name as the Doctor’s arch-nemesis!
Should I be that person? I’ll be that person.
I give the naming of “The Master” a 99% chance of coincidence as Joss didn’t watch “Doctor Who.”
