Time Event
You know what's weird?
When someone has the following as an away message and i find that the song those lyrics are taken from is this.

She's James Bond in a dress
Diamonds forever are all she wears
This is the poem Travers alludes to at the end of tonight's Buffy.
"Invictus" by William Ernest Henley

One of my favorite poems ever. I was introduced to it in Nancy Garden's Annie On My Mind, which is one of my favorite books ever. First lesbian love story i ever read and still my favorite. Is the reason why i wanted to go to the Cloisters and why i was disappointed when i did go this summer.
And just in case anyone doesn’t remember “Amends.”
(Thanks to Psyche for the transcript.)

Giles: These letters contain references to a, a, an ancient power known as The First.
Buffy: First what?
Giles: Evil. Absolute evil, older than man, than demons. It could have had the power to bring Angel back.
Buffy: These guys, (picks up one of the letters with sketches of the eyeless priest) I-I saw them in my dream. I, I fell asleep up there.
Giles: You had another dream? With Angel? (Buffy nods) What happened?
Buffy: (evasively) Oh, we don't need to get sidetracked. Who are these guys?
Giles: Um, they're known as the, uh, (sits) as the Bringers o-o-or Harbingers. They're high priests of The First. They, uh, they can conjure spirit manifestations and set them on people, influence them, haunt them.

Jenny/The First: Hmm. You think you can fight me? I'm not a demon, little girl. I am something that you can't even conceive. The First Evil. Beyond sin, beyond death. I am the thing the darkness fears. You'll never see me, but I am everywhere. Every being, every thought, every drop of hate.

I find that last bit interesting given the Buffy/Spike dialogue tonight regarding (self-)hate.
