When I am irrationally angry about anything I recite Agnes' speech about the peppermints, which are good for the DIGESTION, they are good for the MENTAL ACUITY.
- Seeing Red, Buffy: the Vampire Slayer
(I know it's not a novel but I wanted this :( )
I like John Ritter, I liked the cheesey plot, I liked the issue of Buffy grappling with potentially killing a human in error. <shrug>
I do love Dollhouse. I actually have a lot of friends who watched Firefly and then Dollhouse because it came out after the awareness of Firefly spread, but they've never watched Buffy or Angel.
So I guess the standard would be that ... when a demon takes over your body, some of them have very forceful personalities (Angelus, Illyria) and some of them just make you do the evil things you resist when you're a human (Spike, Drusilla)? But that still is very inconsistent.
ETA: And then Anya was was "transformed" into an immortal demon and it changed nothing about her, not her sense of morality, not her code of ethics, NOTHING was mitigated by becoming a demon.
