Dawn and the others are surprisingly upset about Buffy leaving them after closing of the hellmouth because they asked her to leave her own house in the middle of apocalypse. I mean they threw her out alone to a town filled with bringers, vampires and demons and were later upset because they thought she was dead?
About Xander saying that they tried to help Buffy and she didn't let the close to her, to me it looked more like they didn't trust Buffy's instincts and she didn't or couldn't always explain her reasoning to others.
They did give her some advice, but if she didn't follow it they went behind her back or lied to her.
Another point about her not letting others close is that Buffy's greatest hurts were caused by her family and friends, not her enemies.
They rarely apologized Buffy about the mistakes they made but expected her to be their idea of perfect. And if she made a mistake, they certainly didn't forget that.
Xander helped surprisingly little during the fight against the First considering that he spend one Halloween as a solder and should have been able to help Buffy to organize and train her army. I haven't seen this point raised in any fanfic that I have read and if there is any, please tell me.
Buffy was rude to Xander about his suitability her sister, but he does have a spectacular track record and it wouldn't be too difficult to imagine Xander panicking and doing something stupid when told Dawn was pregnant.
Also all the new slayers, what happened to them?

ALRIGHT GO XANDER! Buffy is proving once again that she's still the selfish b**ch that she's always has been.

Dang! Buffy's just pissing off her old friends left and right. Does she actually think Xander's not good enough for Dawn? Poor guy.

| Abuhin chapter 7 . 7/20/2004
I can just feel the resentment and anger from Dawn and the regret from Buffy. Their confrontation reminds me of the scene from Dead Man's Party where everyone's mad at Buffy when she comes back after she ran away. She feels like she can't relate to her friends and they think she abandoned them. Nice.

That's just mean especially as Buff knew what they went through the last time!
