This story is fascinating. I like how in-character everyone feels and how your narration is so open but there are still mysteries left to wonder about. I didn’t manage to write anything worth publishing the last couple years of my degree. I’m impressed your story kept on with the same tone and feeling that you started with.[Report This]
"whispering emanating from somewhere in her room." Ominous.
We would still be ever so happy to see this story continued. No need to feel weird because it's been a long while....great things are worth waiting for. Hope you return to it one day and give us the pleasure of reading the rest of this story.
THank you for what you have shared.
Ahhhh now Willow is having the dreams Spike once did...those dreams of season 6 and 7 as it was in canon is my guess. I guess he won't be having more of them. It was better to have them in himself than in Willow...I don't trust her at this point...unless the PTB knew she'd take them for herself............................
I wonder if he "saw" the next couple of years as it was in canon before coming back to Buffy in this version? That would explain why he recognized the van (Assuming it is the trio).
Willow is in character....wanting that power so badly. Naughty witch!
I gobbled everything you have to date in one sitting this morning. It's absolutely lovely. I have a weakness for stories where Buffy is sure of her feelings for Spike and has to chase him a little bit, and this is done so beautifully. I love the twist on canon, and I'm very excited to see what happens - if you ever feel like revisiting it, there would most definitely be an appreciative audience! (I have a few theories...would love to see how you tie things in.) :)[Report This]
Ah!! Willow has the memories of Spike from the time in which Buffy died! I can't believe that she thinks that the jar can still be useful to her. I really really like this story, and I love how you depict Spike with a soul. But I am confused as to why he did not go on his insane guilt trip after getting a soul. Is it because he died when he got it? Please please update soon. This story is too good to just stop.[Report This]
I'll be quite gentle...I loved it. Glad to see the muse peeking out from behind the door...I'll do my best not to scare her off. So, Willow's getting dreams of what might have been? I look forward to Spuffy talking to Tara & figuring out what the what is. Wonderful chapter![Report This]
YAY! An update to one of my favorite fics! This day is awesome. <3
More please :P[Report This]
God, you're killing me. You're just killing me with this. The Buffy/Spike conversation was just...guh. And I loved it that Dawn and Spike got to talk. And that Dawn didn't keep her feelings to herself, even if it meant coming clean with some things she could've gone through life ignoring she'd said.
Also, Buffy's reflections on the difference between gratitude and love? I'm just looking forward to the day when Spike realizes she was telling him the truth, and meaning it, from the beginning. :D[Report This]
