Last week, we had Twilight Week over at GeekMom and that prompted a discussion with a friend about whether the relationship between Edward and Bella was really that much different than the relationship between Buffy and Angel in Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season One. Buffy is followed around by a mysterious, hot guy with special powers. He won't tell her who he is but he saves her life now and again and he's completely in love with her. Buffy is a high school student, not of age, he's a vampire at least two hundred years old. And he tries to leave her several times because he's not good enough for her. The difference, of course, is in the execution and the subtle details that make genre fans revere Buffy and mostly hate Twilight.
It is the canonical continuation of the seventh and final season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer television series. Buffy and Xander now lead command-central, which is situated at a citadel in Scotland. At their disposal are a wide array of psychics, seers, witches , and Slayers , along with a vast amount of technology. There are 1, Slayers worldwide according to Buffy, almost of whom are working with the Scoobies , separated into 10 squads. For Buffy's protection and because her name is feared worldwide, two decoys are put in place: one partying in Rome with the Immortal , and one on a mission in demonic underground caverns. In the wake of Sunnydale 's destruction, elements within the United States government view them as an army akin to terrorist cells and characterize Buffy as a "charismatic, uncompromising and completely destructive" leader. General Voll , a member of a mystically aware Initiative -like government project, describes fear of their resources, power and ideology.
