I have a theory that the recent sale/prospective sale of the Buffy rights made the window for “finishing the original” narrow and so Joss just came back in and changed the ongoing story to suit what he wanted to do for the end. Buffy being in a relationship didn’t fit so it just ended (stupidly)

I’m pretty bummed w/the state of Spuffy for S12. 4 issues...I don’t have high hopes. What sucks is the last 2 seasons they’ve had Buffy analyze everyone growing, maturing, finding their place in life & just when it seemed like she had happiness w/ Spike, nope. She bck to saying the same thing .

Knowing Joss he'll likely bring Riley back to woo Buffy so he can put her in spandex and play catwoman

Yes! – so it annoys me that I'm still thinking about it when I want to not care! facepalm

@kimothyschma: seconded. I casually keep track of the comics (and only because Respice has been fabulous and sending them) - excepting S8, which I refuse to read - but I in no way shape or form consider them canon.

Joss hasn’t evolved since the tv show was on. Anything after Chosen is not canon in my head.

I give up on Joss. They had really strong themes going on with seasons 10 and 11 and in he comes to do the same nonsense he's always pulled.

I'm willing to wait and see, but I doubt Buffy's going to end up with a happy ending - unless they decided she would be happiest on her own. I dunno. With Joss back they could go completely nuts again...

Hmm. I think I'm good with never reading the comics.

@handwithquill You’re probably not talking to me, but I saw it on tumblr first and came here to whine frown

Ok. I regret saying anything. I'm so sorry Mods!

Y’all I am really upset about the comic spoiler! 😭

Doesn't give much scope for anything, relationshipwise, to be honest.

I am not on Facebook and would love some comic spoilers, please, so as not to get my hopes up. Thanks!

Me too Slaymesoftly, but I also agree with Sigyn, we won't know what happens till the very end. Someone said there are only 4 comics in S12, it doesn't give much scope for any happy endings (relationship wise) ☹️
June 19, 2018 06:40pm

slaymesoftly
But TBH, it does make me a little sick to my stomach to think they've tossed all those years (show and comic) of relationship development just because Joss doesn't like happen endings.

Look, they are paid to fuck with us. They will intentionally send out something misleading as ship-bait, or anti-ship-bait. Until the storyline is complete, it's hard to believe a word of it.

slaymesoftly
Well, if it ends up as bad as it seems to be going (based on spoilers - won't get mine till tomorrow) it will be good for fanfic. After the goodness that was season 10 and 11, there should be a lot of room to write alternate endings.

I like that Buffy is 30 now. It's good to know that time passes in the comics.
June 19, 2018 06:22pm

-Carrie-Ann-
All we can hope for is something, as long as Buffy doesn't end up with Angel then I feel slightly better. All I can say is there'll be a lot of writers wanting to write a happy ending at the end of S11, I'm thinking of it now, but will wait till the end to find out what happens first.

Oh, sorry. I didn't know every one already knew. Sorry. :/

I know what was the point of S10 and S11??! Not surprised tho, I knew the minute I heard Joss was writing it. He knows no other story it seems 🙁🙁
June 19, 2018 06:13pm

-Carrie-Ann-
There are spoilers in the EF Facebook group already if you're interested. Me too, I'm gutted 😔
June 19, 2018 06:08pm

@handwithquill Buffyforums already has a discussion about it. A member already read it and let’s just say it is typical Joss and I’m really really unhappy 🙁 so everyone can guess what happened.

My store sells comics, and I'm prepping them for sale tomorrow. We got the new Buffy one. If you don't want to wait one more day, PM me questions

Elianne, no, there's a blog called the same. I had planned to call it Across the Pond and searched the net for pictures of 'Across the pond' before I found the blog. I cant take credit for it really xx
