24. Hopeful romantic. I enjoy geeking out everyday.
make me choose: caroline forbes or buffy summer's puns
#i like to think that buffy spent her days thinking of the puns she’d use while slaying#like she’d be doing the dishes and a pun would come to her and she would chuckle and store it in her mind#or xander would say something and she’d think of a pun she could use#and when the potentials started slaying#one of them would try and fail to come up with spontaneous puns#and buffy pulled her aside and said#’you need to work on those before hand#try it#because at the end of the day it was the brightest part of her daily life#other than her friends i guess#because her life is dark and people die and sometimes she must lead and be a warrior and raise her sister#but for some few minutes of the day#she can amuse herself by thinking of puns#and that’s beautiful
