Angel the series
When we first meet Fred, in the tail end of season two, she is considerably disturbed and unsettled through the fact that she has been trapped in a place where humans are little more than cattle. However despite this, she is still evidently caring, and compassionate, possessing enough courage to approach a feral Angel, and to care for him until he’s come back to himself.
Whedon creates her to be a woman who never fully loses her belief in people, but will still react swiftly if someone harms her or those that she cares for. She shows her ruthless side, particularly when she discovers the truth about what her Professor did to her.
However there’s a silliness and a sweetness to her as well, which I find adorable. It’s shown in this brief scene during season three clip posted by thesimpsons.
She is still joking, during the scenes that lead up to her departure from the show, something that she has in common with several of the other characters in Buffy and Angel, but is still a admirable quality to have.
I also like how courageous Joss Whedon made her, Acker’s performances showing that even though Fred might be scared, she would not let it stop her. This fan video reveals that she was a hero, even though she might not have thought so, Posted by scourgeofeurope
I'm a thirty something woman who lives in the north of England. I have been a writer for as long as I can remember, creating stories both written and verbal since childhood. While studying at Edge Hill College, I got several poems published by a small publisher in the USA, and in Europe. I have been part of several writing groups, and done quite a few courses in a attempt to hone my writing skills further. I love reading different genres of fiction, knowing that the best way to develop my own writing, and my vocabulary is by exposing myself to the different ways that other people choose to describe things.
The most recent writing course that I've been part of, run by a published author, included a exercise in which we were challenged to read things that we would never usually even look at.
It inspired me to take up a challenge. Namely to attempt to read at least one book by every author which is stocked in my local library. I soon realised that I was being far too ambitious, especially given the fact that every library rotates their stock too often for me to keep track.
I've decided to instead attempt to read a book every day, starting with a author whose surname begins with A, and ending with a author whose surname begins with Z. It doesn't matter what the topic of the book is, or if it's fiction or non fiction, everything is useful for me at the minute.
