I really needed a fanfic dealing with that particular scene and episode, and this was the closest to how I'd have interpreted myself. Spike's internal thoughts were also pretty spot on and romantic, and this was so hot. Thank you so much for this! You have an amazing talent.
The only part where I'd see it differently were when he compares Faith's body to Buffy's. He'd be thinking - instead of "curves that his Slayer didn't possess" - more along the lines "curves that were different from what his beautiful Slayer possessed, who had a more delicately fiery appeal" or something to that effect. Because I know Spike was and is incredibly attracted by Buffy's physical beauty as well, aside from her spirit.
But I imagine that goes without saying. :)[Report This]
This was great! I loved it!
It was so obvious that Buffy was jealous when she found Faith sitting with Spike down in the basement in Season 7. This was a perfect opportunity for the writers of the series to let Buffy show her feelings to Spike. C'mon! Faith trying to pouch another one of her boyfriends would have brought out the green-eyed monster in her.
Lucky for us we have your story. And I love how possessive and sexy Buffy got. It got really hot in the basement! Oh my!
Take that, Faith! Hands off Buffy's vampire![Report This]
So, this was really enjoyable! I like that you wrote these two pretty much completely in character. I have my doubts about whether Buffy would jump Spike, and whether he would allow it after the AR and with how frought the situation is at this point in S7 ( there's always a crisis!); but that being said you kept the bones jumping in character, and have a perfectly good reason for why Buffy jumps Spike, and why he accepts it. I'm so glad you had Spike refuse her until he could get her to talk out her feelings and motivations for wanting to stop with him after seeing him and Faith in close proximity! Communication is good and souled!Spike won't repeat the patterns of last year, yay! I have trouble believing that Buffy would repeat those patterns, and I think she was very careful with Spike in S7 to not put her needs on him like she did last year. Of course, this fic does a great job of examining her reasons for doing so at this moment which make it a bit more believable for me than it normally would be-is a canon lover- and they talked it out, so it's all good...and the sex was so hot! Love Buffy chaining Spike's arms and I love that Spike ended up pulling them out, rawwwr!
Great S7 one shot with hot sex and even sexy characterization and communication between our two crazy kids. My fav part was when Buffy is teasing Spike and asking him if he missed her and he says, "Every minute" with such conviction that it touches her and makes her pause- I could see that moment being acted out by the actors, it was so good! Bravo! (puts in favorites).[Report This]
Totally fulfilled my kink for bondage play with this fic! What bothered me about Season 7 (among many things) is that Buffy never gave souled!Spike a chance and he, in turn, never gave himself a chance either. You corrected so many wrongs with the agony that I felt over Faih and Spike "just talking" in the basement. It bothered me just as much as it did Buffy. At least your Buffy decided to reclaim what was hers. Oh, liked the knock-down punches Spike bestowed upon Faith in Touched, but that's another story.
Can't wait for your next tale!
Slight error - you rated this story "G". It should have been rated "Yowza". I'll definitely be saving this one to my faves. Mmmm. :)
Author's Response: Ah, thanks, I always forget to change that because I never see it. It's also marked as complete now lol
See that's what made me doubt her confession in the hellmouth! I mean with the history between Faith and Buffy you would think that if she really loved Spike seeing Faith hit on him like she had done to all of Buffy's other guys would have forced her to stake her claim! You know Faith is laughing her ass off right now. I seriously wish it had happened like this. Angel might have worn the Liz Taylor necklace then.[Report This]
