Ever since I first started watching Buffy The Vampire Slayer, I've always felt that Angel was a better match for Buffy than Spike. To me, Bangel is the perfect couple and they're soul mates who are star-crossed lovers like Romeo and Juliet. They've had to deal with things that no other couple have had to deal with but yet they've come out strong in the end. Angel is the one that Buffy truly is meant to be with because she told him she was cookie dough and not fully baked while Angel told her that he wasn't getting any older. They have been through a lot and I will always love them. I've always been Bangel and I will always be Bangel. What they have is an epic love story and one of forbidden love because they're not supposed to love each other simply because he's a vampire and she's the slayer. Anyone who would love them like I love them understands that they are meant to be together and even Sarah Michelle Gellar who played Buffy herself has said in interviews that Buffy belongs with Angel and that she supports Bangel. I have always believed that they will end up together after Angel's prophecy is fulfilled and he is human once more because then Bangel can be together without consequences. I loved the fact that Angel was jealous of the fact that Buffy was with Spike and Riley and that he's still there for her despite the fact that they can't be together while he is still a vampire. I'm the type of shipper who will always defend my ship when people try and convince me otherwise and Bangel is one of those ships that I wholeheartedly defend NO MATTER WHAT. I loved it when Angel would defend Buffy and the fact that he was there to support her even though they weren't a couple anymore. What really made me happy was when Angel supported her after Joyce died. Cordelia and Wesley's acting of Bangel's relationship was funny because they were the only two who had lived through it and saw their love story first hand. Bangel is always on my top lists of couples that I ship no matter what.
