OH HAI WE BE FORCING IN A ROMANCE SCENE. ARE YOU READY FOR IT? NO? WELL ALLOW US TO CRANK UP YOUR HEART WITH THIS CHEESY MUSIC. READY NOW? HEY, WHY ARE YOUR EARS BLEEDING?
Every time, without fail, as soon as I hear the Bangel or the Willow/Xander music, my heart rebels. I like Bangel in Season 2, I even like parts of it in Season 3 (NOT THE TAI CHI PARTS), but it just becomes insufferable. And I always thought I hated Willow/Xander, but then I watched The Wish and I actually really liked them (eta and I remember that I kinda liked them in Season 1 & 2). Why are they less horrible together when they're evil soulless monsters?
