I didn’t want to leave her a l o n e.
THIS FUCKING SCENE IS WHY IT’S NOT OKAY TO HATE ON DAWN.
I mean yes she is annoying and can be really immature but she’s like, 12 years old in season 5 and she loses her mother. Then, her sister within the year. And her father left and won’t even fucking call her so she’s literally alone and has no family. So she’s bratty and acts out? How can you blame her? she doesn’t do real damage she just whines a lot it’s not like she’s hurting people. Oh and also when she was 12/13 she was told she wasn’t REAL and her memories were FAKE.
And they never think of her, they constantly forget her. Yes, Xander was busy rushing Buffy to the hosptial because she also got shot, but like, he didn’t think to CALL DAWN?
And then after all the shit she goes through in season 5, she finally gets a mom again. And it’s Tara. And she has two moms, really. And then they break up, so she has to deal with divorce. For the second time in her life. She she holds on to her mom Tara because Tara treats her like a person then Tara dies and Xander doesn’t even remember to CALL HER about Buffy/the shooting so she has no idea anything is wrong and she comes in to find Tara’s dead body and just wow.
Dawn is one of the most resilant characters on this show and this is not the best written of my posts but like, seriously. Dawn.
