faith lehane; five by five.

  • How I feel about this character
     If you know me then you know that Faith is my absolute favorite character of the BtVS/Angel series. I started off adoring Buffy (I still do, don’t worry), but then I was introduced to Faith. She was fun, playful and gritty. She wasn’t afraid to do what she wanted, and she was just so incredibly sexy and confident in herself. At the same time, she’s also incredibly flawed and deeply insecure, and she hides that with her bravado. I have a thing for characters with issues because I relate really well to that. She makes mistakes. I mean, this girl is an absolutely trainwreck because of her childhood and her adolescence. By the end of the series and in the current comics, she’s grown so much, and I just love her so much. She’s not perfect, but she’s trying. Honestly, I could go on and on about how I feel about her. I love my bb.
  • All the people I ship romantically with this character
    Oh, c’mon. Buffy/Faith FTW. All that subtext is just so hot and sexy because it’s so obviously there. I’m also rather partial towards Angel/Faith because they have such a great relationship. Her episodes in season four of Angel were just amazing, and they have great chemistry. I’m holding out hope that something will happen in Angel and Faith. As far as crackships, I’m guilty of shipping Faith with pretty much anyone. She’s like my bicycle. Particularly, I can ship her with any of the Supernatural boys, including Castiel. I mean, really. Think about it: what if he had been sent to be in charge of Faith’s redemption instead? Imagine the possibilities of shenanigans and ridiculousness! 
  • My non-romantic OTP for this character
     I might get a lot of flack for this, but I really enjoyed Faith and the Mayor. Sure, he was the Big Bad of season three, but he genuinely loved her. The Scoobies kinda let her slip through the cracks, and he was there to give her something she never had all her life: genuine familial love. He’s sincerely torn up about her being in a coma, and he even implemented a plan for her whenever she woke up and he wasn’t there. He may be evil, but he loved her like a daddy. 
  • My unpopular opinion about this character
    Uh? I’m not sure what my unpopular opinion could be since I’m not exactly sure how the entire fandom feels. I don’t think Faith is better than Buffy or anything. Those two just have a lot of UST that I’m sure they need to get out. Other than that, I just have mad love for my girl though I did miss the outfits she rocked in season three. 
  • One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon.
    SO MANY THINGS. Season seven of BTVS had so much going on. First off, I definitely wanted to see more Willow/Faith friendship. They both went over the edge. They should have had more moments where they had heart to hearts about being bad. Like I legit think they should be good friends because that’s something Buffy can’t really relate to them with. I think it should have formed a strong bond between them. My previous hopes was that I wanted to see Faith grow and mature and find her redemption, and even though I’m not reading it, she seems to be doing just that in Angel & Faith. Also, I just really REALLY want Buffy and Faith to get over their issues and be bffs. In my headcanon, they’ve gotten over that, dated and are now biffles. Deal with it.
