William Pratt & William Buxton

God damn it all, how are you both so adorable?!

I tried to find a cute higher res GIF of William from FFL (then again, given the production quality of a lot of BtVS episodes, I'm not sure higher res images exist), but alas they were either not in colour or not resizable to 245x200.
The Return to Cranford GIFs were made by Nimueeh@Tumblr.
I'm seriously being very nostalgic about Spike and Angel at the moment. God, it amazes me how I still love my Spangel-y ship. I saw this awesome GIF set of the Cavemen vs. Astronaut scene, and I almost started crying.

To this day, this remains one of the funniest scenes I have ever watched. Over a century of a relationship is so succinctly culminated into a simple concept— cavemen vs. astronauts. Spike, a vampire of instinct and reaction, knows that the cavemen would win, but there’s a part of him that needs the cavemen to win. Uppercrust, genteel “evolved” society offered nothing to William Pratt; it made him the subject of ridicule, but becoming a vampire allowed him to give into his baser self and his primal urges and ultimately led him to something he views as greater than what he was. In the same vein, Angel needs the astronauts to win. He needs to know that his constant struggle against what he was (both as Liam and Angelus) is going to bring him to a better place, going to let him win, be the man that he wants to be. That’s why they are better together than apart, but it’s also why they will always be at loggerheads with one another. They bring out the best and worst in each other because they literally are the best and worst of each other.

… But the cavemen always win.
