Can We Rest Now? by aaronoz Can We Rest Now? by aaronoz
"Why does a Man do what he musn't? For her. To be hers. To be the kind of man who would nev-... To be a kind of man.
And she shall look on him with forgiveness...
and everybody will forgive and love.
And He will Be Loved.
So everything's okay, right?
Can we rest now?
Buffy?
Can we Rest?"

Inspired & drawn from Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 7 Episode 2 "Beneath You".
Done with HB, 2B & 6B pencils.
Please Everyone, Buffy and nonBuffy fans, feel free to comment, constructively criticise or deconstructively criticise! ;D

I wasn't too happy about the smoke and want to retouch hair too at some stage! But anyway... Enjoy

I quite like the way the text looks with the image. The contrast and shade work is quite nice here. Well done. :)

Thank you very much, and I shall quote "text" the next time my handwriting is referred to as illegible - 'it's not handwriting, it's TEXT! A squiggly font even!'

Lovely!!! You asked for constructive criticism and if I had to say something it'd be that the writing might be more Spike-ish and stand out if it was blood red but honestly, I love like it is!!! :D <3

*snif* This is making me sad. I only have three episodes left until I finish the entire series. Fantastic art, though.

I adore this!!!! I love this scene....Awwww....I miss Buffy...in the good old days. The show. Not...whatever this comic is. :(

Thank you! , yes me too ( but I only finished a 2 months ago so "the good old days" aren't too far behind :) ...hmm there's aspects I don't like about the comic and I was so happy where Buffy ended so I kind of view them separately...but still it would be nice if it was left alone. Thanks though!

Good to know that Buffy is even now finding a new audience.

I think things are horribly glossed over in the comic. Things that would have been a HUGE deal in the show (I'd give examples but I don't know how far into the comic you are) get like three panels worth of attention and are never mentioned again. There is a level of personal interaction with the characters that is flat-out gone. It just bothers me. It's like looking at cardboard cutouts of the characters from the show--they look the same, but there's no soul.

I'm very very very happy they didn't just leave the show where it was...I felt there was still more for the characters to do...but still...I guess the comic is better than nothing but, I just cling to it for that reason. lol. I'm too attached.

I've only read parts 1-4 of season 8 and there are things I love like the writing and language which are still continued but I'm not sure where they're bringing the characters - like starting a willow and spike comic series now. I agree though

For me though I felt they had done it. The choice of what to do next was now up to them, and for us not to necessarily need to know how that resolution came about. There's always nice things about leaving the further-end a mystery...for people to wonder etc. and just to leave things at a close and not stretch and continue it on
-something that, although I do love the comics in their own way, I wonder if thats what the comics are doing.. So that's why it's definitely their Own way that I like the comics :)

I don't even know what-all is going on in terms of other comics branching off. That ticks me off in a way, because I want to read Buffy and know what's going on with Buffy, not continually shell out more and more money subscribing to offshoot comics if I want to know what's going on with the characters I once loved and then just have to piece it all together that way. I don't know...I feel ready to give up on it.

I do feel like the writers owe it to us to be true to the characters (meaning that the writers should care about the characters and treat them with the level of depth they always have), and we should get to know some of what goes on in the character's heads. You don't just let major characters die or play around with their sexuality only to brush those things under the rug three frames later.... :( That's just how I feel. Those are major, major events. I read to get answers, not to wonder what the heck just happened. And that's all I'm getting from Buffy. No satisfaction.

I've never been a big reader of comics...I guess that if this is what they're like, then I never will be. :(

I feel the exact same! But at the same time I know there must be reason behind it because I wouldn't even consider Joss being money driven with Buffyverse taking the hit!

Same, I really would love to hear the writers and of course Joss's honest view on the comics.
Couldn't agree with you more about all of this. I guess for now I'll await the day when the writers stop asking themselves "Where do we go from here?" and conclude it... unfortunately..
maybe then when it's finished I may consider shelling out to find out all, but for now I'm unsure with the comics...
thanks for this conversation though! - It's so nice to be able to talk about this with another fan!! None of my friends are into it so I'm kind of on a lonesome with it :)

I have all the comics and I'd give them to you free if I could.

But yes thanks also for the conversation. Sorry it's taken me so long to reply. I'm really far behind.
