help me, fandom, you're my only hope

It will shock no one to hear that after calming down from the comics upset inspired by Buffy Season 9 #5's release, I feel like I've been punched in the gut again from the more recent news revealed in a Dark Horse interview.


No need to go into the details because talking about the comics really isn't the point of my post.  I'm reeling and what I typically do when I'm reeling or unhappy with the comics is write fanfiction that fixes it.  Except... I already wrote this story in "Fin Amour," only it was set in Season 5 and I dealt with the icky consent violations and Buffy railing against them.  (And there are other disturbing similarities, too, if you stop to think about it.)  So, fanfiction ain't gonna fix this for me, I can't purge this yuck feeling by writing fix-it stories.

Here's the deal.  I'm looking at a three-day weekend with not a whole lot that needs to be done, and I'm hoping y'all can recommend shows and books that I will love and marathon through joyfully.  I just want to get away from this comics mess.  


Please help!  Rec me your favorites!

 (Like, Gabs, I'm thinking about watching Utena, even though I have no idea where to find it.  And Christy, I'm thinking now would be a good time to finish the rest of the Fever series, no?  And Alex, it's time to rewatch TVD, isn't it?)
