This post contains spoilers for Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season Eight.

So, I was re-reading the Buffy season eight comics, and I was reminded of certain… annoyances. In particular, the whole Buffy/Satsu thing almost feels like it’s there purely to set up the gag where pretty much every other character finds them in bed together. After that, it seems to be quickly swept under the rug and Buffy goes straight back to being 100% heterosexual – and various people seem to feel the need to remind her of this. Grrr argh. So I decided to take a break from the other fics I was working on and write this instead.
