Possibly the nerdiest thought I've ever had

Over at the AV Club, Noel Murray is watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer for the first time and posting his thoughts about each episode as he goes along. As I was reading his review of "Bewitched, Bothered & Bewildered," I came across this:

My theory about Cordelia not being affected by the love spell: In the actual episode, some arcane explanation for her invulnerability is offered, but I think the answer is much more simple. I think she wasn’t affected because she was already crazy in love with Xander. It’s like in Trivial Pursuit, when you have to answer a pie-piece question even though you already have that color pie-piece. Cordelia already has her Xander pie-piece.

My very first thought when I read that? "I read a Harry Potter fanfic like that once."

I stole this joke from Chris Sims
