Warren Mears: Misunderstood?

*Warning for entire unserious defense of rape in a fantastic situation*

You know, was Warren Mears really that bad? I mean, yes, he tried to rape Katrina, but he probably didn’t realize it was rape! I mean, how many stories do you read where someone mind-controls a woman into having sex with them, and it wasn’t treated like a big deal? My Owen Harper did it, and DID ANYONE EVER MENTION IT AGAIN? No.

And note that Warren didn’t kill anyone on purpose. Katrina was an accident. With Tara, he meant to kill Buffy. And Buffy has superpowers, and is going to die young anyway, so that’s different. The security guard in Smashed probably turned out fine.

I'm joking, I promise.

Please, don't tell me that someone out there justifies Warren ...

I was assuming that this is a satire of people who defend Spike...

Not just Spike--any character who did something wrong. And I'm satirizing myself as much as other people. Although I've never been THIS bad, I have at times tried to justify my favorites in ways that in retrospect are ridiculous.

Not that I'm aware of. Although I can't figure out why?
