A greatly debated topic within the Buffyverse concerns who should ultimately end up with Buffy: Angel or Spike?
For the first half of the series, the all-virtuous Angel is her guy.
For the second half, it's the rebel Spike.
But a century before Buffy was born, the TRUE romance in the series had already begun to simmer.
A vampire named Angelus met a vampire named William the Bloody. And sparks flew.
And the evidence is undeniable. Notice Angel's snake-like tongue flip. Spike sure did!
They really get off on making the other super jealous.
First with Drusilla. Angel, we get it, you want Spike to notice you.
And then, obviously, with Buffy — who's pretty much an extra in this scene.
But there was one thing that always got them even more riled up than the ladies: each other.
And when they quarrel, they quarrel like PASSIONATE lovers.
But only cause of ~seXUal tenSiON~ AMIRIGHT?!
But they're also so protective of one another.
And they pretend to hate touching each other just a little ~too~ much.
EVERYONE sees it but them.
And they're both in denial about it. Quit pretendin' guise. You know ur soul matez <3
They even sulk in tandem: One broods. One acts out. Both love drama.
Remember their date in Italy when they SCOOTED OFF INTO THE SUNSET TOGETHER?
How'd you guys get chained up in the first place? Must have been a wild night. *wink wink*
So you guys keep playing your games...
...and pretending that nobody sees what's really going on.
But no matter how hard you try to hide it, everyone knows the truth.
ANGEL + SPIKE = <3
OOPS: The article originally stated that Angel and Spike's passionate love affair started "almost two centuries before Buffy was born." Spike was actually sired in the 1880s. Their love remains eternal.
