這樣一直打麵下去好嗎....


Sunnydale

In Season 1, Buffy begins to accept the responsibilities and dangers of her calling as Slayer. Hoping to be a regular student, Buffy enrolls in the local high school and meets her future best friends, Xander Harris and Willow Rosenberg, as well as her new Watcher, Rupert Giles. She also meets Cordelia Chase, a condescending, arrogant cheerleader, and Angel, a vampire with a soul. Buffy is quickly forced back into the role of Slayer as she and her new friends battle vampires, monsters, and demons. She grows closer to Giles, eventually coming to view him as a father figure.

The first season centers on Buffy's battle with a thousand-year-old vampire leader known as The Master, his protégé, the Anointed One, and the Order of Aurelius. On learning that the infallible Pergamum Codex prophesies her death at the hands of the Master, Buffy contemplates leaving town, but accepts her fate after Willow discovers bodies of her friends slaughtered inside the school. She is overpowered and left to drown in a pool of water in the Master's dwellings; her death frees the Master and opens the Hellmouth, but Angel and Xander find her in time for Xander to resuscitate her. A strengthened Buffy shoves the Master off the roof of Sunnydale High, impaling him on the wooden remnants of a broken desk. After the school year ends, Buffy spends the summer with her father in Los Angeles.


太陽谷

第一季,Buffy開始學著接受身為剋星的責任和危險。渴望過著正常學生生活的Buffy進入了當地的高中,認識了兩個好朋友,Xander Harris 和Willow Roseberg,還有她的新Watcher-Rupert Giles。同時她也遇到了驕傲自大的啦啦隊隊長Cordelia Chase和擁有靈魂的吸血鬼Angel。Buffy很快的被迫回到剋星的身份,與她的朋友們一同戰鬥。她和Giles亦發親近,並將Giles視作父親般的存在。

第一季的主要反派是一個已經一千歲的吸血鬼領袖,The Master*(註一)和他的接班人Anointed One*(註二),以及th Order of Aurelius*(註三)。在被從不出錯的預言家Codex預言了她會被The Master殺死後,Buffy一度想要逃離太陽谷,但在Willow發現她的朋友們在學校裡被屠殺的屍體後,她決定要面對自己的命運。Buffy被The Master打敗,溺死在The Master的住處。她的死解放了The Master並開啟了地獄口,但是Angel和Xander及時發現她並把她救活。復活後的Buffy變的更強壯,她把The Master推下太陽谷高中的屋頂,用一張壞掉的桌子的部分將他刺穿。這個學期結束後,Buffy去洛杉磯與父親一起度過暑假。


Trivia
# Buffy's unusual name was the subject of Aphrodisia's somewhat ironic ridicule in the series opener. It would be the subject of a joke as late as the penultimate episode of the series.
# Joss Whedon has since revealed that the character of Buffy Summers is a combination of several X-Men characters. For example, her surname is taken from Scott Summers (Cyclops), and her personality is largely taken from Kitty Pryde.

Slayer's Death
Buffy's first death (in the episode "Prophecy Girl") was a clinical death, in which the heart stops beating, but there is still brain activity. People who experience clinical death have often been revived. This death activated Kendra Young as the Slayer, and Kendra's death activated Faith. This is why no new Slayer was called when Buffy died at the end of the episode "The Gift". The line runs through Faith (or did until all potential future Slayers became actual Slayers in the final episode).


豆知識
#Buffy這個不尋常的名字在影集的開頭被拿來作為跟色慾相關的嘲笑。在影集的倒數第二集中也有拿來被作為笑話。
 (稍微解釋一下,buff這個字用在複合詞有"對某項事情有非常強烈的興趣"的意思)
#Joss Whedon表示Buffy這個角色是X戰警中許多角色的融合。例如,她的姓(Summers)就是取自獨眼龍(Scott Summers),而她的個性則有很大部分是來自幻影貓。

剋星之死.(一)
Buffy的第一次死亡("Prophecy Girl," 1x12.)是所謂的臨床死亡-雖然心跳已經停止,但腦部依然有活動。處於臨床死亡的人被救活的機率很高。這次死亡使Kendra Young成為剋星,而Kendra的死亡使Faith成為剋星。這也是為什麼Buffy在5x22"The Gift"中死亡後沒有產生新的剋星。

註一:The Master,第一次出場在"Welcome to Hellmouth,"1x1。他統治著Order of Aurelius。
他來到太陽谷是為了要打開地獄口,但是卻失敗的把自己困進時空中無法離開。
他是BTVS中最古老的吸血鬼。Darla也是因為他而成為吸血鬼
(The Master - Darla - Angel -Drusilla - Spike)

註二:Anointed One,第一次出場在"Never Kill a Boy on the First Date," 1x5
這個詞原本是希臘文 Χριστός (英文中的Christ,基督)
他在the Master死後帶領剩下的Order of Aurelius,試圖讓The Master復活,但最終還是失敗了
在"School Hard," 2x3中被Spike殺死。

註三:Order of Aurelius,由the Master帶領的古老邪教集團,名字是取自12世紀的先知Aurelius。



掛掉又活過來以後會更強好像已經成為定律了= =?
Faith就是因為這樣才打不贏Buffy嗎?
可是她明明也昏過一次說...

ptt那裡有版友覺得slayer翻成剋星不好聽
解釋一下
會翻成剋星有兩個原因
一個是當時華視在撥的時候就是把他翻成剋星
我們要尊重官方XD
(基本上除了人名以外,我的翻譯會盡量以當時播出的官方翻譯為主
人名我傾向直接用英文)

另一個是剋星其實可以說是最符合這齣劇的翻法
slayer這個字的中文意思是:殺人者、兇手、屠宰者(from 無敵CD-828 pro XD)
Killer的同義字就是了
在這裡不管是以上哪三個都比不上剋星
"剋星"是最能表現出Buffy是"正義"一方的詞彙(雖然我有時還滿懷疑她的正義= =)
也很符合這齣充滿奇幻感的戲劇
就像我們看fantasy小說,看到ranger我們會翻"遊俠"而不會翻"園林管理員"

講白了,這只是一種氣氛營造XD
"吸血鬼殺手"、"吸血鬼屠宰者"、"吸血鬼剋星",哪個聽起來比較有氣勢、比較奇幻?
(當然妳要說"吸血鬼屠宰者"聽起來比較酷那我也沒辦法..........)

以上
嗚,Buffy還有好多,我可不可以直接翻Faith...(被毆死)
