A/N: Double drabble.
Willow knew how it felt to be invisible, to have everyone, or almost everyone, ignore her as if she didn’t exist. Sometimes she thought maybe it was better that way because being ignored beat getting picked on, bullied, or laughed at by the popular kids. She didn’t want to be friends with people like them anyway.
Besides, it wasn’t like she’d grown up without any friends at all before Buffy came along. There’d been Xander, and Jesse, and… Well, mostly there’d been Xander but he was worth more than everyone else put together, even if he looked right through her as well, seeing only his lifelong friend, never a potential girlfriend. Yes, she knew from bitter experience what being invisible was all about.
But now there was Marcie, a girl so ignored, so left out, so completely overlooked by everyone that she didn’t just FEEL invisible, she’d totally faded out of existence. She had to still be there physically, she could be touched, could move things around, and she could hurt people, which made her dangerous, but she couldn’t be seen. She’d become a living ghost.
Willow reconsidered; she really had no idea what it was like to be invisible.
