everybody needs to watch buffy the vampire slayer. not only is is a strong female cast and hero and snarky and nineties and sexy and funny and heartbreaking and complex and exactly what everyone keeps asking for in terms of a modern day female superhero that remains girly and kicks ass at the same time…
but also because i feel really left out on the all the mass-fandom posts
The hardest thing in this world is to live in it.
Anne- She takes on this name as a part of reinventing herself. It is not Buffy, but Anne, who helped her and saved her in S3E1. The name Anne reminds her of Buffy’s strength, kindness, wits, and independence. These are all traits she would like to emulate.
Steele- This is, obviously, a reaffirming of the strength she wants to (and does) have.
Middle name- middle names are often rooted in history (i.e. your great-grandparent’s name or your parent’s favorite x), so it is fitting that Anne Steele doesn’t have one. She doesn’t have (much of) a history as Anne Steele. She has one as Joan Appleby, as Chantarelle, as Sister Sunshine, as Lily Houston, but these are not people she wants to be like. She wants to be like Anne Steele, a strong, compassionate, independent individual.
Trying to explain that Buffy The Vampire Slayer isn’t about vampires is difficult to get across.

Dawn, listen to me. Listen. I love you. I will always love you. But this is the work that I have to do. Tell Giles … tell Giles I figured it out. And, and I’m okay. And give my love to my friends. You have to take care of them now. You have to take care of each other. You have to be strong. Dawn, the hardest thing in this world … is to live in it. Be brave. Live. For me.
