Someone asked me about my Buffy/Drusilla feelings recently, and I went on long enough that I thought I'd paste it here.

I expect it will be dark and dysfunctional, obviously. I feel like you could get interesting thematic stuff about Buffy out of it without bogging down in the feminine power vs male violence paradigm that tends to crop up with Buffy/Spike and Buffy/Angel. You've got all the same Slayer/vampire pushes and pulls, plus you have Drusilla, who knows much more than she's able or willing to express. I think she understands Buffy in a very twisted sort of way; if she cared to, she'd know crannies of Buffy's psyche that Angel and Spike probably would never even guess existed.

So I'm imagining some kind of thing where Dru kind of haunts Buffy - see, for example, Drusilla appearing in Buffy's dream in Surprise (which I consider one of the more underrated dream sequences of the show). I think I recall thinking, because of some stuff Dru says later, that that was actually a shared dream between her and Buffy. If that's a recurring thing, then Buffy might respond in all sorts of interesting ways, especially if Dru didn't directly threaten Buffy. Dru mesmerized Kendra in order to kill her; maybe she takes a similar approach with Buffy, the cobra mesmerizing the prey, but on a much larger scale. And then maybe the results (and Buffy) surprise her, and she finds there are much more interesting things to do with Buffy than kill her.
