Day 7

In your own space, share a favorite piece of original canon (a TV episode, a song, a favorite interview, a book, a scene from a movie, etc) and explain why you love it so much. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I'm in need of distraction so I'm going to do this for a number of my fandoms.

Buffy: I have so many favorites in Buffy, it's hard to choose. But I'm going to go with what probably got me hooked on the show in the first place. Buffy's death at the end of Season 5. Specifically, the single image of Spike crumpled and sobbing. Those two episodes were the first I'd ever sat down and watched, so all I knew about it was that Spike was a vampire. I was so intrigued by why a vampire would be crying over the death of the slayer that I started watching the reruns that were showing on Sky One. By the time I got around to seeing Buffy die again, I sobbed just as hard as Spike did.

Merlin: I might adore Percival, but my favorite episode hands down is "Sins of the Father" and that's because of Arthur. Arthur is my woobie. The destruction of his faith in his father is heartbreaking, and the confrontation with Uther makes me cry for all parties involved. Arthur for obvious reasons, Uther because of his sheer terror at what is happening, and Merlin for having to lie to Arthur about the truth.

Hunger Games: There is so much to love about these books, and while I could pick any number of Peeta and Katniss moments, I have to go with a scene in Catching Fire where they are watching past victors in preparation and watch Haymitch's Games. That scene changes everything. From how the reader sees Haymitch, to how Peeta and Katniss see him. It kills me, every single time.

Mad Men: So many moments, so little time. To pick one, I'm going with the whole scene with Peggy and Stan stripping down while they're working. I love the power dynamics of that, how Peggy is able to put Stan in his place with such a simple thing, how much strength she possesses, and Stan gets so awkward and embarrassed. Especially knowing what comes after.

Black Sails: Hands down, it's James standing up to Thomas's father at the dinner table and basically kicking him out of his own house. Everything had been leading up to that moment, and it turned the entire show on its ear with the revelations that came afterward.

I could do so many more of these, but I should probably keep this list short, lol.
