Rom-Coms Make it Look Easy
Date of Scene: 12 July 2019
Location: Buffy’s Apartment
Synopsis: Buffy gives Oz relationship advice while they watch cheesy rom-coms and eat pizza.
Cast of Characters: Buffy Summers, Daniel Osborn


Buffy Summers has posed:
Buffy was up all afternoon and into early evening, trying her best to catch up on her studies. To avoid distraction, she had turned off her phone for most of the day. Surprisingly, she was actually quite good at it when she really focused on it. The translator that Logan had gifted her had come in super handy for the Japanese class she was studying for, too. However, as night dragged on, she grew restless and finally decided to call it a night, preparing a soothing chamomile tea from the kitchen as she switched on the tv to watch some late night chick flick. It took her a moment to notice Oz?s text message which consisted of little more than a selfie of hi. posing with a cute red head, although the unusual red aura caused her to frown a bit. ~New girlfriend? Wanna talk about it? come on over!~ she had replied as she curled up on the sofa with her tea.

Daniel Osborn has posed:
Oz was in new York City at the time of the text, on the way back to his van to get going back home to Sunnydale, so he quickly stepped off the sidewalk to respond. "If you're okay with me showing up in a little less than an hour, then I'm on my way." And he kept walking, awaiting the response.

Buffy Summers has posed:
??Tis okay, take your time..I want all the juicy details! she texts back excitedly. Of course it will some time so Buff has a mini nap as she relaxes in front of the tv, enjoying the cheesy rom com on tv. ?I really miss that kinda simple life..? she sighs, ordering some Hawaiian pizza as she waits. Oz will probs be hungry when he arrives.

Daniel Osborn has posed:
Sure enough, aboutan hour and 10-15 minutes after the texting conversation, there's a knock on the door. It's Oz on the other side, carrying what looks to be an overnight bag in one hand. And in fact it is,the bag full of clothes he always keeps in his van, just in case.

Buffy Summers has posed:
Buffy Summers actually starts to drift asleep on the couch when she hears a knock on the door. She yawns and stretches, climbing to her feet and opening the door. "Hiya Oz, hope I didn't wake you up or, y'know, interrupt you.." she grins, nodding to the pizza on the table infringement of the couch. "If you're hungry, feel free!"

Daniel Osborn has posed:
"Pizza? Wow," Oz says, stepping inside and setting the bag down, before kicking off his boots and plopping down on the couch. "Thanks Buffy. I was getting ready to head home, so, ya know, no problem." He looks over to her, stretching out and leaning back for a second. "So what did you want to know?"

Buffy Summers has posed:
Buffy Summers smirks, settling down on the couch and munching on her own slice of pizza in thoughtful silence for a few moments. "Hmm well that text message of you and that cute girl was pretty telling..You guys seemed...Cozy! Although, I gotta ask..That strange aura around her..She's not a demon, is she?" more than anything, Buffy is concerned for her friend but hoping he is moving on.

Daniel Osborn has posed:
"Oh, no. She's a mutant. I know, I thought she was a demon the first time I saw her too." He picks up his own slice of pizza, taking a bite of it. "Well, I....I don't think we're official yet, I need a little time to think about everything, but...I figured if i could talk to anyone about it, it'd be you."

Buffy Summers has posed:
Buffy Summers relaxes visibly once he reassured her that this girl is not a demon. "Ahh, that's good to know. But sounds like you kinda like her, hmm? Deciding to take things slow? I mean that's a good idea. So am I. Definitely don't wanna fall too hard or too fast you know?" she peers at him intently now, "Soo? What's she like? Is she nice? Looks pretty cute..Is she into music too? Gimme all the juicy details!"

Daniel Osborn has posed:
"Oh c'mon, I didn't ask you all this about Logan," Oz says, with a smirk. "She never got into music, but she did like when I played my guitar for her. So yes, girl can be impressed with the guitar." He grins. "I don't know her whole story, but she's...in a bit of a rough patch, but she's trying to move on from it. Her power set basically means that she has total control of gravity around her, so she can reverse it and flip upside down and all kinds of crazy stuff, and she can open portals. In fact, that's how I met her, was doing archery in Central Park, she opened a portal right in the path of my arrow. It was hilarious, just shot the arrow, I saw this red glow and heard a scream, then this demon-llooking girl comes out raging mad, I thought I was gonna die." He can't help but laugh, mainly because looking back that story just sounds utterly ridiculous.

Buffy Summers has posed:
Buffy Summers chuckles, patting him on the shoulder. "Okay, fair enough, although she's probably not like 200 years old with a mysterious past either." she shrugs, "Well that's cool, girls sure dig a guy with guitar, bonus points if you can sing. And really? You do archery too? That's cool!" She dies chuckle at the way they met, munching some more in her pizza. "So how long you known her?"

Daniel Osborn has posed:
"Buffy, you've seen me do archery," Oz says, with a smirk. "How'd you forget so fast?" He half shrugs. "Only known her for...maybe a couple weeks now? Today was the second time I met her, though we did text back and forth a little bit. She looks to be pretty young, I'd guess late teens, 17, 19, 20 at the absolute most, though we all know looks can be deceiving," he says, chuckling as he munches on his own pizza.

Buffy Summers has posed:
Buffy Summers smiles and shrugs, "I've seen you use one of the cross bows in the weaponry like the rest of us. Didn't realize you were doing serious archery though. That's cool." she nods, munching thoughtfully on her pizza. "Yea, that's true. Mutants are interesting, some of them have quite unpredictable powers. But that's nice. Sooo are you over Willow now or..?"

Daniel Osborn has posed:
"That..." Oz takes a breath. "You had to bring that up, didn't you?" he asks, though he seems to know it really did need to be brought up. He continues munching on his pizza, going quiet for a time, thinking.

Buffy Summers has posed:
Buffy Summers nods slowly, watching him thoughtfully. "I guess you can't ignore unresolved issues no matter how hard you try." she sighs, sinking down in her seat as she sips slowly on her tea, "It's kinda why I told Logan I need to take it slow, even though sparks were flying between us like, insanely.." she shivers at the memory of their last meeting before he went to Japan to deal with some personal mission. "But at the same time, I know things between me and Spike can be intense too, even though I push him away, or punch him any time something starts to happen. It can be..Confusing, when your heart is torn.."

Daniel Osborn has posed:
"You're right," Oz says, finishing his slice of pizza and looking at his empty hands before taking a breath. "Well, for you, take some time and think...who would you rather be with? That decision is very hard for me because...well, I love Willow, never stopped loving her, will probably always love her. But Rift, well, she's hot. What is it with me and redheads? Maybe it's because I'm one." He chuckles at that, letting a smile slip onto his face. "Like, I feel like her and I have chemistry. Everyone deserves to be happy, right? But, I also don't want to let Willow down, like, what if she decides she does want to get back together with me, but I'm already with someone else? Buffy, I don't know what I'd do with myself then." He takes another breath, picking up another slice of pizza and going silent again.

Buffy Summers has posed:
Buffy Summers offers him a sympathetic smile. "Yea, that's a tricky one. You definitely deserve happiness too, and you can't wait forever to see what she wants or doesn't want. Have you actually told her outright how you feel? Sometimes you just have to be blunt and honest and straight forward with us girls." she bites her lip, peering in to her tea. "I promised I'd talk to Wil but lately I guess she's been so busy with all her classes and magic that I haven't seen much of her. Like the other day when she didn't come home? That's pretty standard really. Probably stayed up all night at school taking night classes or something." Buff shrugs, finishing off her pizza and grabbing another. "But yes, it's harder for you, you have history with Wil. And this other girl, I hope you're not just interested in her for her looks?" she smirks, "Although that can always be a major distraction too."

Daniel Osborn has posed:
"Oh god, she's pretty hot," Oz says, "but it's not just that, really. I promise." He takes a breath, nodding as he takes another bite. "I did tell her. I was really straight forward, i always am Buffy. She just...she said she needed time to think. And then last week I went to this Carnival in Canada with her. It was really fun, by the way. But this guy gave her his number...I saw red for a minute. But, we've talked since thin, and, I guess I'm starting to realize..maybe I do need to let her go. We have a connection that neither of us can forget, but...maybe are paths are destined to be separate."

Buffy Summers has posed:
Buffy Summers smiles, "Yea, you can tell things as they are. Maybe You should tell her your dilemma, how you like this other girl but you like her too and you can't wait forever for her to decide either. I get that it's been a while since she's seen you but you deserve more than an 'I'm not sure yet'. It's kinda sad but it almost sounds like she wants to move on but isn't ready to let you go either..Doesn't mean you can't love each other as friends or hang out as friends and still be happy. Maybe Your relationship has just evolved. Like me and Angel."

Daniel Osborn has posed:
Oz nods, taking another bite of Pizza. "I think you're right," he says. "I wish I could see her now. I think it might be time to move on, but I have to talk to her before I can. I just need to know that she's really ready to move on too."

Buffy Summers has posed:
"Definitely!" she agrees, "And speaking of which, maybe it's time I stopped letting my imagination run wild about certain vamps and quit holding Logan at arm's length." she smiles, nodding towards the cheesy rom-com still playing in the tv. "They sure make it seem so easy don't they. Things always work out perfectly in the end on tv. So unrealistic."

Daniel Osborn has posed:
"Oh, if only life was like that," oz says, with a chuckle and a smile. "But then again, if life were like it was on TV, do you know just how boring it would be?"

Buffy Summers has posed:
Buffy Summers sighs, "I dunno, I kinda like happily ever, no plot twists or disappointments, or people getting hurt if you make the wrong decision.." she shrugs and smirks, "Buut interesting is nice too. " she lifts her tea mug to him on toast. "Here's to uncomplicated but interesting relationships! May we at least get our own happy endings!"

Daniel Osborn has posed:
Oz grins, no drink in hand, so he lightly fistbumps the glass. "To some strange real life version of happily ever after. Hey, you know, at least I have a girl I can talk about this with."

Buffy Summers has posed:
Buffy Summers grins and nods, "It's pretty funny, usually girls talk to girls and guys talk to guys about relationship issues. But you can totally relate, and suddenly Wil's too busy all the time to have a heart to heart. I mean it's kinda sad but I guess I have to expect that things would be different in college. It's a bit sad really but it is nice to be able to talk to about these things." she smirks, "And I'm glad you've found someone who shows as much interest in you as you deserve."

Daniel Osborn has posed:
Oz nods, offering a smile and turning to give his friend a hug. "I know we didn't talk much before, but thanks for being there," he says, simply. Of course, Buffy isn't necessarily wrong, but sometimes the bag has to be mixed up a little bit.

Buffy Summers has posed:
Buffy Summers nods, yawning a bit tiredly as she returns the hug. "No problemo! And ditto. It's interesting how things changed between us.." she lets go to rub her eyes, finishing the rest of her pizza and tea. "Well doesn't look like Wil is coming back tonight. If you need a place to crash for the night..You can use her bed again." she chuckles, "I hate the idea of you driving in the dark in this neighbourhood."

Daniel Osborn has posed:
"This isn't a bad neighborhood, but there are some pretty bad ones in Gotham, comparitively, and Sunnydale at night..." He leaves the rest unsaid as he smiles, finishing his pizza and standing up. He gestures to the overnight bag he brought. "Thanks for letting me crash here," he says.

Buffy Summers has posed:
Buffy Summers nods, "This particular neighbourhood isn't as bad as say, crime alley but even here I've seen the occasional nasty. I wish I'd chosen another college but I guess I just wanted to go to the same one as Wil, and Gotham U had some good reviews afterall. It really is a gloomy city most of the time. But too late now I suppose." she nods at the overnight bag. "Awesome. Make yourself comfortable. I think I'm gonna head to bed before my brain bursts. I've been studying all day and I deserve a nice long nap.." she gets up, giving him one last hug before heading to bed. "Night Oz.."
