I wanted to post this wonderful, detailed, wordy but interesting essay on the indomitable Ms. Cordelia Chase. Obviously, eleusis_walks, is quite the fan of our resident 'rich bitch/popular girl/cheerleader/poor little ex-rich girl/Scooby orbiter/actor/detective office administrator/evil fighter/seer/guardian ghost'.
Click the link when you've got the time to spend on a commentary designed to point out just how fabulous our Ms. Chase was in the flesh and is in the spirit (Although, the essay doesn't get into Angel: After the Fall, just trust me. She remains very much as she was in life when it comes to helping Angel stand.)
