Seasons of Cordelia Chase  
So apparently all I ever do is make up my own AtS memes and make Cordy and/or C/A graphics. Not that I particularly mind, that is quality time usage after all.

This is what I've been doing on tumblr lately, and thought I'd share with LJ too, just because Cordelia Chase is a hero, and everyone needs to know about it.

|p r e v i e w|

Cordelia Chase | Season 1 | BtVS

Cordelia: Hey! You think I'm never lonely because I'm so cute and popular? I can be surrounded by people and be completely alone. It's not like any of them really know me. I don't even know if they like me half the time. People just want to be in a popular zone. Sometimes when I talk, everyone's so busy agreeing with me, they don't hear a word I say.

Buffy: Well, if you feel so alone, then why do you work so hard at being popular?

Cordelia: Well, it beats being alone all by yourself.

Cordelia Chase | Season 2 | BtVS

Cordelia: You're really campaigning for bitch-of-the-year, aren't you?

Buffy: As defending champion, you nervous?

Cordelia: I can hold my own. You know, we've never really been close, which is nice 'cause I don't really like you that much, but you have on occasion saved the world and stuff, so I'm gonna do you a favor.

Buffy: And this great favor is?

Cordelia: I'm gonna give you some advice. Get over it.

Buffy: Excuse me?

Cordelia: Whatever is causing the Joan Collins 'tude, deal with it. Embrace the pain, spank your inner moppet, whatever, but get over it. 'Cause pretty soon you're not even gonna have the loser friends you've got now.

Cordelia Chase | Season 3 | BtVS

Lyle: I'm gonna -

Cordelia: Rip out my innards, play with my eyeballs, boil my brain and eat it for brunch? Listen up, needle-brain. Buffy and I have taken out four of your cronies, not to mention your girlfriend -

Lyle: WIFE!

Cordelia: Whatever. The point is, I haven't even broken a sweat. See, in the end, Buffy's just the runner-up. *I'm* the Queen. You get me mad, what do you think I'm gonna do to you?

Cordelia Chase | Season 1 | AtS

Cordelia: I'm not a sniveling, whiny, little cry-Buffy. I'm the nastiest girl in Sunnydale history. I take crap from no one.

Ghost of Dennis' Mom: You're gonna make yourself a noose -

Cordelia: Back off, Polygrip! You think you're bad? All mean and haunty? Picking on poor, pathetic Cordy. Well, get ready to haul your wrinkly, translucent ass out of this place, 'cause lady, the bitch is back.

Cordelia Chase | Season 2 | AtS

Cordelia Chase: Why is it always virgin women who have to do the sacrificing?

Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: For purity, I suppose.

Cordelia Chase: This has nothing to do with purity. This is all about dominance, buddy. You can bet if someone ordered a male body part for religious sacrifice, the world would be atheist [snaps fingers] like that.

Cordelia Chase | Season 3 | AtS

Cordelia: I have to find Billy.

Lilah Morgan: And I'm gonna help you, why?

Cordelia: You know that guy that you hired to hack into my visions? What he did to me? You know what it felt like? I was cut, torn up, my face disfigured, and burning with pain every second not knowing if it was going to end or just get worse till I died.

Lilah Morgan: So you think I owe you...

Cordelia: It's not the pain. It's the helplessness, the certainty that there is nothing you can do to stop it, that your life can be thrown away in an instant by someone else. He doesn't care. He'll beat you down till you stay down 'cause he doesn't even think of you as alive. No woman should ever have to go through that. And no woman strong enough to wear the mantle of "vicious bitch" would ever put up with it. Where is Billy going?

Cordelia Chase | Season 4 | AtS

Angel: All I know is that you are my dearest friend. And I hope that - I just - I want that back. That much, at least.

Cordelia: You have no idea how much this is killing me. I know my ABC's, my history, I know who's President, and that I sorta wish I didn't. I know the name of every shoe store in the Beverly Center, but I don't - I don't even recognize the sound of my own name.

Angel: We'll get you back. No matter what. I promise you, we will get you back.

Cordelia Chase | Season 5 | AtS

Angel: So all that stuff about the deals with the devil...

Cordelia: Was God's honest truth. But you're bigger than that. You'll win this in the end. I, uh... just wish I could be there to see it.

Angel: What do you mean? You're not...

Cordelia: I can't stay. This isn't me anymore. You can say good-bye to the gang for me, explain everything once you understand.

Angel: That's gonna be never. I need you here.

Cordelia: Don't make this hard, Angel. I'm just on a different road... and this is my off-ramp. The Powers That Be owed me one, and I didn't waste it. I got my guy back on track.

Angel: Cordy, there's just—

Cordelia: We take what we can get, champ, and we do our best with it. I'll be seeing you.

The blending is truly stunning as is the composition and quote selection.

Oh, I'm so glad you think so =D

I'm actually really happy how they came out, and finding all my favourite caps for it was so fun, and of course, you simply can't go wrong with a Cordy quote!

I miss her :(

Fantastic spam!

Oh god me too, so so much.

Thanks, I'm glad you like =D

I am in love with this post. I love all the graphics and quotes chosen. Think I will be doing some reblogging.
chorelle: Angel - Herochorelle on April 14th, 2011 01:09 pm (UTC)
Aww thanks, I love it when people appreciate my graphics, and gorgeous icon by the way. She is always so stunning!
Heather: Cordeliadejahnerra on April 14th, 2011 01:36 pm (UTC)
Aww thank you. :) Didn't make it though. She is. i can never get over her gorgeousness.

I also followed you you on tumblr. Hope that's ok. I'm glancesicanretrace.

I was also wondering if it would be ok if I friended you on here. Sorry if I'm coming off as giddy/creepy. I just don't come across too many people still active in making stuff for Cordelia/Charisma/AC.
chorelle: Angel - I Rememberchorelle on April 14th, 2011 01:40 pm (UTC)
Of course it's okay =D

I agree, not that many people do enough Charisma/Cordy/AC stuff! I wish there was way more of us, but most of the fandom is in the BtVS corner, while I am firmly an AtS/Cordy/AC groupie lol.
Heather: Angel/Cordy Old Schooldejahnerra on April 14th, 2011 01:45 pm (UTC)
Thanks. :)Added you. :)

Me too. Once ATS came along I didn't care anything really for BTVS. lol My favorite character was Cordy and I just enjoyed the stories on Angel and the interactions much more than I did on Buffy. Plus Angel/Cordelia!
chorelle: Buffy - Halloweenchorelle on April 14th, 2011 01:52 pm (UTC)
I like the way you think =P

When I watch BtVS, I still like it, but really I watch for Cordy, and of course any C/A interaction such as yours and my own icon! As a whole however I adore AtS the most: my fave characters are there (I am firmly on team Angel, but you have to admit he actually becomes a character on AtS instead of a plot device), The stories somehow seem more grown up, and like you said Angel/Cordelia, my favourite pairing ever!

Also just FYI, when I start talking about C/A, I tend not to stop!
Heather: Angel/Cordelia Made For Each Otherdejahnerra on April 18th, 2011 03:19 pm (UTC)

I like the earlier years of BTVS S1-3. But that is because of Cordelia. *lol* Plus I think the setting worked so much better in high school.

I loved that Angel got to flourish more on ATS. And same for Cordy because I don't think either one would have been able to on Buffy. They all just lived in her shadow. But it was her show so I guess it made sense. *lol*

And I do love how much more grown up the stories were. And I love seeing how they all came together on Angel. And I enjoyed their group/friendships better. Though I admit I wasn't into Fred.

Keep talking! The more A/C talk there is the better!

chorelle: Angel - I've Got Youchorelle on April 19th, 2011 09:05 am (UTC)
Oh I am literally saying THIS! out loud to all of what you've said =D

I'm not a big fan of Fred either, I watch all the earlier Seasons of BtVS way more because of Cordy (Homecoming FTW!) And they were SO in shadow on BtVS, such wasted potential! Also so much love for your GIF, even though I've seen it multiple times, I still get so excited when they meet again for the first time (on AtS) Favourites forever!
Heather: Angel/Cordy Sleepingdejahnerra on April 21st, 2011 01:19 pm (UTC)

She in my opinion ruined the dynamic. It was so much better Cordy and men. And I hate how she further ruined the friendship/dynamic with the whole Wes/Gun thing.

I still need to buy Seasons 1-3 of Buffy (and 4 and 5 of Angel but I hesitate on those big time).

Homecoming was awesome! Love it! It was a wasted potential because they couldn't do too much and surpass Buffy.

Thanks for the gif love. I really need to make more but ever since I've been able to make anis I've been all over the place.*lol*

I so agree. I love the huge smile he has on his face when he hears her voice. And then her huge smile when she sees him.
chorelle: Angel - Save Youchorelle on April 21st, 2011 01:32 pm (UTC)
Oh I know, Wes/Gunn BroTP for life! They were such great friends and arrgh! I can't hate Fred but she really kinda bugs me and she did throw the whole dynamic out of orbit.

I have the boxsets, so I have every episode at my disposal! S4 and S5 is only good for rewatch veryoccasionally =(

Homecoming is my fave btvs ep really, and I just wish we had more Buffy and Cordy screen time, but also Cordelia scaring away vamps is pretty much the coolest thing ever!

I know, the first time he *really* smiles in the ep, and I always love how genuine his smiles are towards Cordy. And obviously the Cordy smile lights up the room. I just love them! Adorable OTP is adorable!
Heather: Angel/Cordy Satisfy My Souldejahnerra on April 21st, 2011 04:27 pm (UTC)
Yes! It was awesome! Yeah I'm not sure if I would say I hate her but I think the show could have continued doing good without her and if she wasn't there (as in left with her parents) I wouldn't of cared.

Boxset would have been easier for me to buy 4 and 5 but I already had 1-3. lol I think eventually I will get 4 and 5 but in no hurry. I only want 4 because there are some good scenes and Charisma is still there. And I only want 5 for YW.

Not sure my favorite Buffy episode. I'll definitely have to do a rewatch but I do love Homecoming. And I liked seeing B/C interact in Buffy. Though I have to admit Buffy annoyed me a lot after a while. Though i could never full on hate Buffy because Sarah played her so amazingly.

Yes to all of that! Building up Cordy/Angel is the bets thing they did when it comes to couples. And one of the bets overall. They started out barely knowing each other, to friends, to best friends, to loving each other. It was amazing.
chorelle: Buffy - First Sightchorelle on April 21st, 2011 04:51 pm (UTC)
Sarah literally is Buffy. She was flawlessly in character always. I actually really like Buffy, though not when she is on AtS (In Sanctuary I was about two feet from shoving my foot through the screen at her)

Most amazing relationship ever. I don't care what anyone thinks, the layers and foundatons of C/A are what makes it such a rich and special couple to ship. No. 1 for me forever and always.
Heather: Angelus/Cordydejahnerra on April 23rd, 2011 02:23 pm (UTC)
She really was. Sarah kicked ass in that role.

She really annoyed me with her superior attitude in Angel. :( Especially in Sanctuary. *nod*

So true. The only thing that sucked about it was how they ruined them up until YW.

Though I have to admit they are my 2nd or 3rd favorite couple. They use to be number 1 though.
chorelle: Buffy - Halloweenchorelle on April 23rd, 2011 03:15 pm (UTC)
Aww, that's sad they aren't anymore, but the show has been over for a while... Who are 1 and 2?
Heather: Angel/Cordy Hello Salty Goodnessdejahnerra on April 23rd, 2011 09:59 pm (UTC)
Yeah. I still love them so much and I still love talking about them but I have to admit I have moved on to other couples.

Number 1 is Nathan/Haley from One Tree Hill. And number 2 is Puck/Quinn from Glee. But Glee is ongoing right now so I would love to see where they are when it's over with. Or when I quite the show. *lol* I only watch it for Quinn/Dianna, PQ, and some of the music.

These are gorgeous! I especially love btvs s3.
chorelle: Buffy - First Sightchorelle on April 14th, 2011 02:37 pm (UTC)
Thank you, and that is so nice to hear, as BtVS S3 was the only one I wasn't entirely happy with, but if it's your favourite then I haven't gone too far wrong!
sidhlairiel: fightysidhlairiel on April 14th, 2011 03:36 pm (UTC)
Oh gosh, these are beautiful. Especially s5 - I started tearing up reading the quote on that one, haha. Happens every time. Great work!
chorelle: Angel - Herochorelle on April 14th, 2011 03:42 pm (UTC)
Thank you, also ee too, I'm always bawling my eyes out during YW. Just making that graphic was hard!
sidhlairiel: cangelsidhlairiel on April 14th, 2011 03:45 pm (UTC)
Oh definitely. That's the reason I barely rewatch that ep cause I'm such a complete state afterwards! I love those two so much ♥
chorelle: Angel - I've Got Youchorelle on April 14th, 2011 03:48 pm (UTC)
Well, apparently I'm a glutton for punishment, because I keep going back for more all the time! I love them maybe a little too much... oh well!

I’ve recently started a blog, the information you provide on this site has helped me tremendously. Thank you for all of your time & work.

chorelle: Angel - Alonechorelle on April 15th, 2011 04:57 am (UTC)
Um, okay? I don't really know what you mean, but I'm glad I could help you out!
samsom: helpsamsom on April 16th, 2011 02:33 am (UTC)
You know, I noticed this last night. Tonight, I got a similiar message from another usuer with no icon congratulating me on my 'blog' and the content.

Smells like a 'bot.
chorelle: Buffy - Valentinechorelle on April 16th, 2011 03:55 am (UTC)
Yeah I checked the page and there was nothing there. Weird kind of bot though don't you think?!
samsom: creepersamsom on April 16th, 2011 04:04 am (UTC)
What 'bot isn't, at its root, weird. :P

chorelle: Buffy - First Sightchorelle on April 16th, 2011 05:10 am (UTC)
Ah yeah you're right. Also lol at your icon. Liam you sly dog you!
samsom: the moment beforesamsom on April 16th, 2011 05:16 am (UTC)
I love how much Liam totally lusted after Cordy in that episode! Liam, Angel, Angelus, they ALL want her. :D
samsom: head bitch always in chargesamsom on April 15th, 2011 01:25 am (UTC)
Loved this more than words. Seriously. Everything is perfect and beautiful and you chose some incredibly awesome caps to blend. I love it all. Loved logging on to find this. *sigh*

The internet just needs more Cordy love. <3
chorelle: Angel - Herochorelle on April 15th, 2011 04:56 am (UTC)
Aww thanks, and you are certainly correct, Cordy needs ALL the love. The cap finding/making mission was so fun, and an excuse to go over all the best Cordy episodes, which FYI, is all of them lol!
samsom: gay4cc tiny waistsamsom on April 16th, 2011 04:05 am (UTC)
Upon further review, I'll have to say AtS s2 is my favorite...but only by the narrowest of margins. I just loved looking at her at the start of that season. So many delicious, shoulder-baring halters and such. *sigh*
chorelle: Angel - The Most Beautifulchorelle on April 16th, 2011 05:08 am (UTC)
Haha yeah, but honestly she is always gorgeous. Just picking a few caps to work with was hard! I mean YW is basically just a capapalooza of perfect images. Does she ever look bad? Answer: No. lol
You call it a cult, I call it family.....skargasm on April 15th, 2011 10:06 pm (UTC)
That was just beautiful - you summed up that amazing lady incredibly well. Kudos.
chorelle: Angel - Herochorelle on April 16th, 2011 03:57 am (UTC)
Thank you so much. I just try to give Cordy justice, she just doesn't have enough appreciation for my taste!
