Day 30 – Saddest character death:

Wesley (Angel)

Since sadly major characters on both of my favorite shows, Angel and Supernatural, have this tendency to die off, this was another category that was quite difficult to choose--there are so many, like Ellen and Jo or Gabriel in SN (I'm not even going to include deaths of people who came back like Sam and Dean or Buffy), Cordy, Fred, Doyle on ATS, and so on.

However, I think as far as death scenes go, Wesley's is the best, the most beautifully done and heartbreaking, even though in a way I wasn't even that sad he was dying, since he was so miserable at that point that I think he preferred dying and possibly being able to reunite with his lost love in the beyond. But although I wasn't as upset about him dying as with some other characters, the whole scene just kills me every time, and is one of the few ATS scenes to jerk a few tears from me (I don't cry at TV easily). Illyria changing into Fred for him, the way he says "I've missed you!" (such FANTASTIC acting!), gah! And I don't even really ship Wes/Fred except as an unrequited love on Wes's part (I'm Wilah and Frunn all the way), but I can't help but like it in this scene, it's just so tragic, and the music and everything....

In short, a wonderful, powerful scene in a great series finale, and a good end to Wesley's truly complex and fascinating character arc. RIP Wesley....(Cordy's death was also very sad, but since it was sadly off-screen it didn't have quite the same impact on me).

LAST DAY, WOOHOO! :D  Overall I think I managed to incorporate almost all my major shows past and present, though I mentioned some shows more than others. Here's a quick count of how often some of the shows were featured:

Angel - 7
Supernatural - 3
Merlin - 3
Moonlight - 2
Doctor Who - 2
Dollhouse - 2
Gossip Girl - 2
BTVS - 2

God am I happy to be done with this meme, took me long enough....these memes all look like so much fun, and there are so many of them,  but IDK if I could do this again, too hard to keep up...O_o

Congrats on finishing! It becomes quite a chore, doesn't it? XD

It really does, especially if you're like me and insist on putting images for each day too and write a lot...luckily I was able to write pretty much all of it while bored at work, lol, but still taking the time to post each night, etc...gah! I presume you've done one before then? :)

On the other hand though I don't think I've ever posted so often/so consecutively! ;)

*wishes her dl would hurry the eff up so she can watch Merlin and read your entry*

*sends you bandwidth so it goes faster* I hope you're not disappointed! *is nervous*

I hope not either, though given how low my expectations are (in part to avoid disappointment), hopefully that won't happen as easily as last time!

At least I have episode 2 of Torchwood to distract me while it's finishing...I decided to give it a go, it's no DW, but I'm curious...
