So, one of the reason I went to Comic Con was for James Marsters, which played Spike in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. When I see him I was siked!! I’m about to meet SPIKE!!! Freaking loved it when he said ‘Bloody Hell’!! I have my season 7 DVD and his very own DVD Spike Love is Hell and of course the Tee.
I look up and it says NO posed pictures. (see picture) Huh?! Whatever, he’s with maybe a manager, looking at me and all my stuff he says 40$ for a signing and 45$ for 8’ 11 sized photo w/ signature. I personally don’t like none of them and say I just want him to sign my stuff. He tells me 40$ each item. WHAT!?! I’m sorry huh? ‘Each item, 40$ apiece.’
I look back at Spike and then at the long line and say muck it. He looks at me and smiles “You made my day!” (Yeah, mucking right!) I think. “Spike, *smiling* can you say bloody hell for me?” he moves closer to me and says, trying to look as youthful as his picture “I’ll do better than that pet, Blood Hell” I was a believer until it hit me, 40 mucking dollars for this?! I walk to the Sherrilyn Kenyon line, the girl tells me you don’t look so happy after meeting Spike. I tell her what happened and she tells me wooaw. I tell her “When I become a vampire I’m gunning for him, ripping out his throat.” What a greedy sod!!
Who does this? He does, he’s probably hurting for the money. I couldn’t get that out of my mind, lesser actors and authors do it for free. They do this in favor of US the fan’s, they wouldn’t be here if it were not for US!! I can’t believe I bought all his stuff, if my Buffy soda came with a Spike soda I would have drank it (or poured it down the drain, if I didn’t like it) and threw out the bottle. The heck with SPIKE! *hissing*
End Result. Was it worth it?
