Anya My Anya


My eyes literally welled up with tears from just looking at that picture of Emma Caulfield. I miss her so much, you guys have no idea. She's making such an Anya face! Agh, my heart is broken.

Anyway, that still is from a movie called TiMER, which is playing at the Tribeca Film Festival next month. Via io9 a synopsis:

"TiMER, starring Emma Caulfield (best known as the demon Anya) as Oona. In Oona's world, everyone wears an implant on their wrist that counts down until the day the wearer finds true love. But Oona's is blank, which means her soul mate doesn't have his/her device implanted. So instead of waiting for the timer to kick in, Oona falls for the young supermarket clerk John Patrick (Gossip Girl) whose timer is set for four months from now. The flick is both directed and penned by Jac Schaeffer."

I will see this movie. But I could've sworn that Caulfield had retired or something. Maybe I'd just convinced myself of that because I can't live in a world where she's not a huge massive superstar. That sort of world, a world that would allow her to go unloved in the quantities of love that she deserves, is not a right world.

Anya: Are they gonna cut the body open?

Willow: Oh my god. Would you just... stop talking? Just... shut your mouth. Please.

Anya: What am I doing?

Willow: How can you act like that?

Anya: Am I supposed to be changing my clothes a lot? Is that the helpful thing to do?

Xander: Guys...

Willow: The way you behave.

Anya: Nobody will tell me.

Willow: Because it's not okay for you to be asking these things.

Anya: But I don't understand.
[begins to cry]

Anya: I don't understand how this all happens. How we go through this. I mean, I knew her, and then she's- There's just a body, and I don't understand why she just can't get back in it and not be dead anymore. It's stupid. It's mortal and stupid. And-and Xander's crying and not talking, and-and I was having fruit punch, and I thought, well, Joyce will never have any more fruit punch ever, and she'll never have eggs, or yawn or brush her hair, not ever, and no one will explain to me why.

One of the greatest scenes in the history of television.

That plot sounds really good to me. Melodrama, fantasy, ANYA.

I want.

When she says fruit punch, I burst into tears everytime.

I love that you love her as much as I do. I'm still mad at Joss for her crappy send off.

My heart breaks a little just hearing "Am I supposed to be changing my clothes a lot? Is that the helpful thing to do?"

Anya does the best clumsy and tactless attempts at helping I've ever seen. She's my favourite character, I loved her a lot.
