A lot of the mythology of the Buffyverse is inconsistent, to be honest. But they seemed pretty definite about Fred's soul being destroyed. I don't quite know what you mean by her not being Illyria, though?

I'm a big fan. I liked the way Whedon wrote her, too. That icon's from the bit where she went into Sentry's mind, yeah.

Are you talking about the comics now? Because I haven't read them. There was certainly no indication of that in the show.

despite the fact that she is not now nor will she ever be fred, she IS a formerly evil person who is trying to redeem themselves, just like him.

Illyria... trying for redemption? Ugh, DNW. I liked her truly alien.

The art was amazing... I think it's Dodsons? They made her look so real.

I don't know, i didn't find it so, and I really enjoy looks at truly alien mindsets. For those mindsets to be humanised and adopt human ways of thinking seems kind of... self-important. But I suppose humans were always narratively privileged in the Buffyverse.

I like to collect pretty art for my icons. :)

I don't really agree with you - one of my enduring favourite books is The Mote in God's Eye, where the plot hinges on the mutual incomprehension of humans and the first aliens they encounter. Blindsight is another amazing book exploring aliens so very alien they don't even have individual consciousness. And the Chanur series has aliens so inhuman that humans can only interact with them through a third alien race. I really like trying to comprehend truly alien mindsets, and seeing them well-done is one of the joys of SF and fantasy to me.

Showing off? I don't know what you mean...

Well, I think it's possible... didn't it get touched on in Supergods, the idea of alien minds? It's not all art, either, it's dialogue and plot set-up too. Yes, it's challenging to do, but I don't think it's impossible with small-world books. (It's much harder with vast shared-universes, yeah - someone always defaults to human in a rubber mask.)
