Day 23 - Most annoying character

I'm usually pretty lenient on characters, I find. I rarely take an active dislike to characters many have problems with (as an example: I never really minded Cameron in House.)

But there is always one exception to a rule, and my exception is Dawn from Buffy. Holy fuck, I hated Dawn. Up until Dawn, I'd liked Michelle Trachtenberg as an actress. I'd seen her as a child actor in a few things and thought she was quite talented. I still maintain that she is. But Dawn had to have been one of the worst constructed and conceived characters in the entirety of television history. I spent a good amount of time rolling my eyes at her, making snide remarks to the television, and wondering why the hell anyone cared remotely about her. The only, and I do mean this, only thing I remotely liked about Dawn was the little friendship she and Spike developed, and I only liked that because of Spike.

I went to a Buffy sing-a-long once (the audience sang along to Once More with Feeling) and every time Dawn appeared on stage, everyone was meant to yell "Shut up, Dawn!"

And did so with great glee.

HEEEEEE! That sounds like brilliant fun!

ROFL. Priceless. I agree with you. I never liked her character, either.

She was less annoying than Glory. Then again, because both of them were so annoying, I kept sort of not caring that much about Glory finding Dawn, except as a commodity to keep the world from ending.

I was much more upset about what Glory did to Tara.

You know what? I didn't mind Glory. That may have been my love of hammy archvillains coming into play, but I enjoyed her for a lot of the series. I hated what she did to Tara, but, yeah, for the most part, I was okay with her.

When I saw the theme/question/whatever for today, my immediate thought was, "DAWN!" So yeah, right on!

The only time I almost sort of (but not really) liked her was when the potential slayers showed up, just because they were so awful that she *almost* seemed cool compared to them... but yeah, not really.

Haaaah! Yes :D I still didn't like her, and by that time, I really disliked the show.
