I don’t even want to write about these. Angel is just the worst. He is everything I hate about immature men with savior complexes.
Buffy is dealing with shit and he shows up, and not only does he “protect” (she’s fucking fine) but he tries to do it without her finding out, and he ropes all her friends into it.
And that gets at the heart of what Angel wants. It’s not that he wants to brood and suffer, he wants the world to see him brood and suffer and feel like he’s such an amazing dude that doesn’t deserve this! Fuck him.
And then it gets worse. God I can’t even. Not finishing this description. Just listen.
