Passion. It lies in all of us. Sleeping… waiting… and though unwanted, unbidden, it will stir… open its jaws and howl. It speaks to us… guides us. Passion rules us all. And we obey. What other choice do we have? Passion is the source of our finest moments. The joy of love… the clarity of hatred… the ecstasy of grief. It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion, maybe we’d know some kind of peace. But we would be hollow. Empty rooms, shuttered and dank. Without passion, we’d be truly dead.
Angelus (via withoutpassionwedbetrulydead)



Aside from appreciating Alyson’s acting abilities, can we please appreciate the difference in her demeanor, confidence, and joy between the first gif and the fifth? You can see the moment in the fourth gift where she loses the joy in her taunting (due to allowing herself to think about Tara) and the moment in the fifth and sixth when she recognizes that she allowed herself to be vulnerable.

The way it’s written sets up the transition perfectly but it would have been nothing if Alyson hadn’t NAILED the acting in that moment, but boy did she deliver. You can see in her eyes WHY she’s no longer talking about someone else (“Willow”) but herself (“I was wonderful.”) Just, perfect.
