Ever since I first started watching Buffy The Vampire Slayer, I've always felt that malaikat was a better match for Buffy than Spike. To me, Bangel is the perfect couple and they're soul mates who are star-crossed pasangan like Romeo and Juliet. They've had to deal with things that no other couple have had to deal with but yet they've come out strong in the end. malaikat is the one that Buffy truly is meant to be with because she told him she was cookie dough and not fully baked while malaikat told her that he wasn't getting any older. They have been through a lot and I will always cinta them. I've always been Bangel and I will always be Bangel. What they have is an epic cinta story and one of forbidden cinta because they're not supposed to cinta each other simply because he's a vampire and she's the slayer. Anyone who would cinta them like I cinta them understands that they are meant to be together and even Sarah Michelle Gellar who played Buffy herself has berkata in interviews that Buffy belongs with malaikat and that she supports Bangel. I have always believed that they will end up together after Angel's prophecy is fulfilled and he is human once lebih because then Bangel can be together without consequences. I loved the fact that malaikat was jealous of the fact that Buffy was with Spike and Riley and that he's still there for her despite the fact that they can't be together while he is still a vampire. I'm the type of shipper who will always defend my ship when people try and convince me otherwise and Bangel is one of those ships that I wholeheartedly defend NO MATTER WHAT. I loved it when malaikat would defend Buffy and the fact that he was there to support her even though they weren't a couple anymore. What really made me happy was when malaikat supported her after Joyce died. Cordelia and Wesley's akting of Bangel's relationship was funny because they were the only two who had lived through it and saw their cinta story first hand. Bangel is always on my puncak, atas lists of couples that I ship no matter what.
