I'm a big fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. My favorite fictional character EVER is Tara Maclay, who was played by Amber Benson. Joss Whedon, being Joss Whedon, decided to kill Tara on S06E19, just after Tara and Willow -my favorite fictional couple EVER- getting back together. And Tara was killed by Warren, who was played by Adam Busch.
I loved it when Dark Willow killed Warren a few episodes later. Of course, it wasn't pleasant to see Willow turning into that monster, filled with pain, rage and wanting revenge. But... I was heartbroken too. Warren had killed simply the best character in Buffy, Warren had killed the character that was the girlfriend I wanted to have! THAT BASTARD DESERVED ALL THE PAIN IN THIS WORLD! Even though, deep down I knew Tara wouldn't approve Willow's actions, and she wouldn't even approve me approving WIllow's actions.
But Willow killed Warren anyway, mercilessly.
And then on season 7 the First appeared to Andrew. But the First appeared as Warren. I couldn't stand to look at the screen while he was there. Because THAT BASTARD KILLED TARA!
You see, I hated Warren so much that I couldn't think of Adam Busch without thinking of how much I hated Warren, and then I ended kinda hating to look at Adam Busch...
Well, if I couldn't look at Adam without thinking of Warren, how the hell did I end up listening to CoRo?
It was because of Amber Benson. Amber had promised her fans that if her book, Death's Daughter, reached 85 reviews on Amazon.com, she'd post a video on youtube, in which she'd be singing Macarena. And there were 85 reviews, so she posted the video. In the video she's backed up by Common Rotation.
AND I DIDN'T NOTICE IT WAS ADAM BUSCH! - I'm terrible with people's faces to tell you the truth.
Around this time, Amber was tweeting a lot about CoRo -she was dating Adam! At first it was a shock... I mean, HIS CHARACTER KILLED HER CHARACTER ON BUFFY! But then my head started to function normally: They're not Tara and Warren! They're Amber and Adam!!!!!
Then, one day on facebook, some Buffy fan I was friends with posted a Common Rotation's song, Fortunate, in which they were singing with Kate Micucci. Common Rotation's music made magic! Any bad feelings I had towards Adam because of Warren were erased!
And then I started searching the web for more of them and I discovered the Union Maid, and YES! I was in love with Common Rotation, and I had finally forgiven Adam for playing Warren.
And it was through Common Rotation that I ended up discovering the Indigo Girls, which now I love more than I love Common Rotation...
