lusciousxander: (Oh Pooh! by mirasol)
One of unreasonable Tumblr Xander-haters' hobbies is taking every quote, every scene, that Xander appears in and ripping him to pieces just to prove that he's the worst character that ever existed. It would be okay if Xander actually did what they claimed he did, but most of the time they make stuff up and let the Xander bashing begin.

My latest encounter with irrational Xander-hate:

Xander Harris said out loud in front of a teenager that he masturbates to the thought of his oldest and closest friend being intimate with her girlfriend

but nah sure he’s a great friend


I don’t remember that scene. Which episode was it?


Once More With Feeling

right after Willow and Tara’s duet “Under Your Spell”, it cuts back to the Magic Box and he’s complaining about how they got out of research and then he starts talking about them sexually, veiled in EXTREMELY thin euphemism that I guarantee you a fifteen-year-old would see through instantly and it’s been like twenty years and I’m still incandescently angry about it


I just watched the scene. He didn’t say or imply that he masturbates to the thought of them sleeping together. He was simply aggravated that they made excuses to get out of research, saying that they were lying about the volumes because they were all over each other before they made their escape.

As for Dawn, he stopped talking when he noticed her right away, so it wasn’t like he was saying inappropriate stuff in front of a 15 year old girl on purpose.

I remember being upset about the part where Dawn said “I think it -lesbian sex- is romantic,” then Buffy and Xander snapped, “No, it’s not!” However, on rewatch, it looked more parental than homophobic, like they didn’t want Dawn going out and having sex because she thought it was romantic especially since she put herself in danger in the previous episode when she went out with a vampire.


“Sometimes I think about those two. Doing a spell. And then I do a spell by myself.”

you must be pretty flexible with all them mental gymnastics you’re doing there my friend


That quote wasn’t said in Once More With Feeling. It wasn’t said in front of Dawn. That quote was said in Restless, in Willow’s dream, so Xander never said it. That quote is about how Willow sees Xander.


wow you are just DESPERATE to make his behavior okay

please love yourself


Looks more like you’re desperate to blame him for something he didn’t do. I brought you facts. Xander never said he masturbated to the thought of Willow/Tara in front of Dawn.

I had a blast rereading this sort of essay/meta by [livejournal.com profile] liz_marcs about Fanon Xander. There are so many versions of Xander in Fan Fiction that tend to be so far away from the guy on the show. I have to say when I first started reading BtVS fanfics OhSoGayXander and VictimXander were my favorites. That changed throughout the years. Now I can only read CanonXander or the closest to CanonXander that a writer can write.

Stalking the fanon Xander... Check it out, especially if you're going to write a fic with Xander in it. Make sure to avoid those Fanon Xander tropes - which IMO are mostly in the past. I don't think most of those Fanon Xander tropes exist nowadays.

"Xander is a misogynist jerk."

I'm starting to read this a lot to the point where I started to believe it. What makes Xander a misogynist?

Definition of the word is a person who hates, dislikes, mistrusts, or mistreats women.

Is Xander really this person?

“I realize that tons of the cool people commenting on the Buffy posts really dislike Xander.

But I don’t care.

If liking Xander is wrong, I don’t want to be right. Or cool.”

Quote by Momzter. Best thing I've read about Xander in a while. :)
lusciousxander: (Oh Pooh! by mirasol)
I've written a fic called Five Times Xander Didn't Get a Free Pass a long time ago.

I still see this topic pop up every now and then. Xander never paid the price, Xander never had to deal with the consequences, Xander never had to go through the big drama Buffy and Willow go through.

Reading that pisses me off because this is what I, and a lot of Xander fans, have been whining about for the past few months and yet have others accuse us of wanting a "Xander show". The reason why people feel this way and hate Xander for it is exactly why us Xander fans whine all the time:

Xander never had a flashy arc!

His character growth is doomed to be in the background or even not on-screen. He does grow up, he does become a better person, and he is actually a character I'd love my son to grow up to be like. But it's so sad that no one can see it because the process to get there isn't there. It never was, and even if it was, it's so subtle and vague.

It sucks being a Xander fan.

Although, I really love being a Xander fan when reading [livejournal.com profile] local_max's posts. He really knows how to heal my bitter Xander heart. I love you, Max! *hugs*

Author: [livejournal.com profile] lusciousxander
Characters: Xander and Buffy
Summary: Joss wrote Buffy and Xander as role models and they've been my role models before I knew about this fact.
Warnings:

A) This is jumbled words of defense and not an essay.

B) Don't bash Joss, Marti or any other writer.

C) Try as hard as you can NOT to:
1) Take this post or anyone's comment personally,
2) Use inappropriate language,
3) Pick fights with other posters,
4) And please don't ridicule posters' lousy use of English or intelligence. Most of us are not native speakers, so be respectful please. Cordelia's tactless honesty is fun on screen, but it's really NOT when talking to real people.
