I'm actually in pretty good shape, I think. My posting at the time of this meme was the BTVS, S2 review of 'Reptile Boy'.
Since Buffy is there and not crushed yet by Angelus and the weight of Dawn & Joyce's death, I think I'm okay to go. Plus, Giles hasn't gotten deaded yet (sorry for those who haven't read S8, but Giles has been killed... and before the creative staff and Joss fully exploited the Giles/Faith team up, which is nearly unforgivable).
Sure, Willow isn't super witch yet and Xan is an a-hole, and Giles is a bumbler... but Buffy still has that Slayer-mystique which seems to protect herself and her friends. And there is no way in hell I'd be in Sunnydale without being, at the least, a major secondary player. There would be no point, if I was just going to end up a 'Jesse'.
