Hi! Newbie here. I never thought I'd actually find a community dedicated to loving Riley Finn but alas, I found this one. Riley has received a lot of hate since he and Buffy hooked up but I totally love the dude. I can understand why some people might dislike the guy but I just wanted to give my reasons for liking the character:
1) Riley can be paired up with basically anyone in the Buffyverse and Angelverse as long as it's written well. I love pairing him up with Faith and Dawn just because it will make Buffy squirm. I like Buffy with him too.
2) The character has a great potential to develop and does not have too much info on his past that fic writers can take a lot liberty in writing him.
3) The character is redeemable.
4) The character has that all American good boy look but has a potential for danger which is so attractive.
There's more but I'm gonna quit while I'm ahead...
So what are your reasons for liking Soldier Boy?
