  1. Hey loved this one- I don’t like Dawn that much as a character but I feel that her introduction in season 5 was an awesome plot line and I really enjoy that season. I don’t think she deserves the hate she gets in the fandom as much as others (like Riley). I was also disappointed that she wasn’t used anymore in terms of being ‘the key’ as this could have been developed furhter. I was also sad that she never really got back the friendship she had with Spike in season 5 & early season 6 as this made her more likeable and real as a characture.

  2. I think she was a very real character. I understand exactly what she was going through. After she lost her mother and then Buffy, her abandonment issues had abandonment issues. I don’t think of Riley as unlikable, but I never could think of him as an actual character, just as Buffy’s boyfriend.
