Exactly - far from being a position of priviledge, being a slayer could be
seen as a burden - for Buffy more so than most, because she was found late
and so didn't get the kind of training that Kendra got.

thinking about 'with power comes responsibility', Derk is an interesting
case study.  Is it right for Derk to create all these weird hybrid animals,
just because he can?  or is he a bit of a mad scientist?

And does anyone else have a problem with the social setup in the
Chrestomanci books?  If you are a powerful enchanter why do you need
