Assuming Cordelia wasn't cremated, what do you think Angel would have buried her in?

I'm still remembering that godawful black dress the Scoobies buried Buffy in, and how much I hated it and the shoes. I like to think that because Angel had some style, the same style that Cordy had, he would have been a bit better at dressing her up.

Black? White? Something tasteful or youthful or both?

I think it might have been something black or brown and slightly above the knees, a glimmer of bling in the stitching to bring out her beautiful skin and a deeper than is proper vee in her cleavage, to bring out her breasts.

He would have put the necklace he gave her when he came back from Tibet on her, I think, something that nestled between her breasts so that whoever met her on the other side would know they were dealing with a gorgeous woman who knew how to accessorize as well as a soldier for good.

Her hair would be soft and down and her shoes would be of the latest style.

Yeah, I know. Morbid much? :)

They do have a symmetrical kind of style. Take a look at the header of whedon_kinkmeme.

Red and black inversed.

Two characters with something to atone for, wearing the colors of sin and adultery.

I kinda dig it.

Welcome to things Kelly has thought about and kind of written about before. I'm just fascinated with Angel planning Cordelia's memorial. I don't know why. Or just any expression of grief by Angel for Cordy.

Too bad it's only in fic.

Even though the last scene in YW breaks me into tiny bits, I have never given a lot of thought to afterwards - even though I've written about it ad naseaum (and taken Undrowning as personal canon). But I was writing yesterday (gasp!) and I suddenly wondered what exactly would he dress her in. They're both clothes conscious, he knew her tastes enough to buy her clothes that made her dance in joy, so how would he handle the last thing she'd wear?

Oh fuck. I smell another fic idea.

I remember reading a fic where Angel buried Cordelia in the white dress from Tomorrow. I liked the sentiment but not sure if it is the best choice. I don't know or care much about fashion or clothing so I don't know whether that was a good pick or not.

In my opinion?

It was a bad choice. I hated that idiotic dress they put her in.

Generally the whole 'verse is very well written but other times, like the whole Angel's descent/Cordy's ascent, is so anvilicious. I mean, Angel's sinking in black so Cordy naturally has to ascend in a white billowy dress?

So.

I guess I had some lingering thoughts.
