Whatever pleases me, for whatever reason.
Hi there! "AP" stands for "Advanced Placement" with are college level classes taught to high school students. If they perform well enough on the AP exam at the end of the class, they could possibly get college credit for the course :)

Hello, thank you for that response. I live over here in the UK, and lots of facets of American school life have become somewhat known here through the dominance of TV and films from the US - the PTA, grades, GPAs, majors, minors, etc. I’m intrigued that I’d never heard of this AP business before. It sounds like a good idea. How is access to it given/controlled? Is it only for high-performing students, or can a teacher who sees potential in an apparently average kid to blossom in such a programme enter them into it?

I love the fact that Faith could literally get out of jail ANY FUCKING TIME but she didn’t because she wanted to do the right thing for herself and because of Angel and Buffy one of the most amazing redemption stories you’ll even see on tv

And she only left because Angel saved her life and he needed her before Angelus did something he couldnt come back from. Their friendship man, they just got each other on a different kind of level.

Faith did a lot of really problematic shit. a lot. and she is one of the few characters who ‘went evil’ who never really gets a fully off the hook  for it in the show. But she tries, my god does she try, to be better and do good and turn it around.

and then, at the end of it, She gets Buffy’s trust - and respect…and man…feels.

Faith Lehane. Buffy might be my hero, but Faith is my girl.

Funny. This is entirely different to what I took from this scene. I didn’t see her as thinking -

"My friend, the one guy who stood by me, is in trouble - I need to help him, and no prison is going to stop me."

For me it was -

"The worst of them all - the very worst - is back. I’m the Slayer. I am going to kill him. Nothing will stop me.”

She has bought into the redemption thing, and willingly stays in jail to serve her time and atone for her sins; but when Angelus returns, she goes into full Slayer mode, ready to do what she has to do. Am I the only one who saw it that way?
