Hey, I get to say, "I told ya so".
[obcooke 08-04-2001: ...It's a certainty that at some point these two will have a cat fight, it's an obvious dramatic twist that Joss won't be able to resist. The only question is how serious will it be - a squabble that goes too far or a fight for superiority?]
[10-31-2001: In the early days, every spell was a major production... ...As of Season 5, Willow was able to do much more with little or no preparation. We can only assume that this trend will continue.]
[11-01-2001: ...I was really just offering a counter to the theory that spells might take too long in a physical fight. It depends on how adept the magi is...
...And how powerful Willow is when the fight comes can be affected by many factors. If she is willing to take the risk, I am sure there are spells to artifically increase her physical abilities or boost her magical power temporarily...
...But Buffy has one overwhelming unfair advantage - The show is called Buffy, the Vampire Slayer not Willow, The Slayer Slayer]
Who da man?! hee, hee.
