So I read the issue.  I loved it.  I guess I'll get started. Many, many thanks to everyone who has written so beautifully about the season. Normally I try to wait before reading anything else before I post, but I read a bit of (not all of) Maggie and Emmie's reviews on Whedonesque--I couldn't wait!--so probably some ideas seeped in.

Spoilers for all of season eight, as well as all of BtVS and AtS.

Part 2. Focuses on Buffy, Willow and some meta elements. Also some personal comments! Enjoy.

SPOILERS obviously. Also, length. Sorry 'bout that...

I would have put this into one post, but LJ was being testy.

So this came out long so I'm splitting it into two parts.  Enjoy!
Usual disclaimers. SPOILER WARNING.   Again, not 100% edited, so if I say something in here that is probably wrong, ask!

Note: So, this was going to be the first section of my 39 review, and now it's its own post.  I'm pretty bad at this.  I'm planning on having shorter thoughts about everybody else in another post coming soon.

I'll also admit that this isn't proofread, and I deleted some things and moved things around, so it's probably not as good as I'd like.  OH WELL.  Have at it.

Warning: spoilers, incoherence )

I'm giving a conference talk tomorrow (!) so won't be online for a few days.  So if I don't reply for a while, it's probably because I'm doing that.

Spoilers! )

In other comix news, I read The Shepherd's Tale and enjoyed it!  No deep thoughts (like, none) which might just be from exhaustion from having deep season eight thoughts all the goddamn time.

I feel like I’ll always have more to say, because this issue helped solidify some thoughts I’ve had about several of the arcs. But, well, it’s late, and the new issue is coming out in a few days. So consider my previous 37 post to be the Season Eight Buffy post, and this one to be the post about this issue.  Also, this may not be coherent.  Sorry!

I’m heading to a conference on Thursday, and have to prepare a talk for then (well, technically, Friday). So I might well be too busy to write anything substantial on 38, assuming of course I even process it quickly enough, before getting back on about Sunday or so. I am still going to read it on Wednesday though.

So believe it or not, this is actually not my review of issue #37, which, well, I don't know if I will get around to writing.  We'll see. But what I do have instead are some thoughts about the structure of season eight with regards to Buffy, and in particular how I feel much of the season grows out of season seven and "Chosen" in unexpected ways.  So this isn’t so much about the #37 itself, though obviously I draw from it; the issue is part of what helped me solidify some of these thoughts.  As ever, I am forever indebted to my flist who have written marvelous, marvelous things from which I (possibly not even consciously!) steal heavily.   This isn't particularly coherent (sorry!) because I just got exhausted from writing it.  Also, you deserve an award if you can read this through to the end.  

Spoilers up to #37, plus very minor spoilers for the covers to #38.
