The 2000 words link is fun, yes, thanks.

I wrote a long response... I disagree, Buffy wasn't really as tough as Oasis or River. Buffy had some kinda magical powers conferred on her so she could fight fairly well, but otherwise was pretty sane and normal. A ditzy blonde. Oasis and River are both being ripped apart by pain in their past, stuff they can't remember (click here to read more)

Good point, and good distinction. I was really just looking at the fact that Joss has this tendency towards acrobatically-fighting mysterious women in his shows, from Buffy to Illyria to River, without going into the depth you did. Unfortunately, I'm not a Sluggy reader, so I'd have a lot of catching up to do to understand Oasis.

However, I don't really think of Buffy as sane and normal; as the series evolved she became far less of a ditz and far more misguided and dependent on those around her.
