Ok, I've been noticing a lot now, most of the Buffy fans are both Spuffy & Bangel fans. I think the reason is that it was something different that came on the show. A slayer fallen in love with two vampires Angel & Spike.
When Buffy the Vampire Slayer first came on air. All the fans were interested with the relationship with Angel & Buffy. It was something about learning the meaning of "First True Love". All the fans would talk about Why Angel left Buffy?..We find this answer in Season 3, and Season 7 in Chosen..That still doesn't satifsy all the fans now. After the break-ups...
Alright, well, this soapbox isn't very good, cause it got written in a hurry, but it's basically my thoughts on souls in the Buffyverse.
“We can love you know. Quite well, if not wisely.”
So said by Drusilla to Buffy in Crush. Those words break down everything the council ever taught Buffy, that demons couldn’t love. The soul vs. soulless theory is that a demon can’t feel emotions, but, if that is true, than how could he feel hate? Anger, greed, lust. Those are all emotions. So is love.
“The saddest thing in the world is loving someone who use to love you.”
