Does everybody live at Buffy's?
Just thinking about this the other day - does everybody live at Buffy's?
-may contain slight S7 spoilers up to point of UK viewers-
-Okay, so Buffy and Dawn obviously,
-Giles doesn't have a place anymore in US so he has to stay at Buffy's,
-all the potentials have to be under Buffy's eye so they have to stay there (even tho' one of them actually lives in Sunnydale, so I don't know how she explained to her parents that she had to move in with her student counsellor),
-Willow moved in at the beginning of S6 and never left (does she even pay rent?),
-Spike, after conveniently forgetting that he had his own crypt and brief spells in the school basement and Xanders has settled nicely into Buffy's basement (what is it with him and basements),
-Andrew needs to be under Buffy's eye so now kips on the couch,
-Xander has his own place but quite amazingly eats sleeps and lives at Buffy's
-and Anya used to have her own apartment but I think she was evicted or it got wrecked or it came with the vengence demon gig or something, so guess what - she lives at Buffy's.
So, assuming this isn't an attempt to break a world record or anything - what is going on? Do any of them pay rent, is Buffy keeping everyone on a student counsellor's wage (and not a full one at that) or are the writers just too stingy to buy another set? Just something to ponder....
