Totally unexpected to have a nemesis somewhat rescue Dawn from a far worse fate!
Nice touch with the Calamity Jane hit song! I love that movie and the song.
And ditto on the Hey Jude lyrics! You fired on all the cylinder with this pic!
Well, I am so pleased and touched that you reviewed so many chapters of this story. It's lovely to see a reader catching on to all the little clues - like the gun that finally kills Tara, etc. I thought Sweet had to come and rescue Dawn. In my "to do one day when I finish the other 5 wips" file, is a story about Sweet and Dawn again. Thank you once again for such a huge read and I'm so glad you enjoyed this one.
I understand Dawn wants to be “fast” like a lot of teens. But I have a hard time understanding it. I looked after young siblings and cousins and so was not in a hurry to do “it”. Why be in a hurry to do an act that you know produces babies? I think it’s immaturity of thinking in the moment instead of consequences. And that in the moment only comes with younger siblings. And the whole it’s all about me thing too. Rant over.
As a first born, I was in charge of younger kids so I was alone with them before I was 10. Dawn as a whiny younger one does not get responsibility just yet.
Good descriptions of storm havoc. Confrontation next chapter for real this time? Will buffy step in? Trying to suss it out beforehand.[Report This]
I've enjoyed this one since the beginning! As always, I look forward to your next one.
Ha! Thank you and I almost screamed "What next one" at the screen! So I have to get on with Everyone has Secrets, finish Challenge story and somehow go back and continue with Future Imperfect before the twins are pensionable age!
I’ll accept dollars, blood in pints, pounds of flesh - human or otherwise - but no magic beans, treasure maps or lamps that summon genies. No elderly relatives fit for sacrifice. Anything with more than twelve legs must be caged. LOL Love this list of acceptable currency.
I am tickled at Sweet being her rescuer. all my Sweet-things So he has a few marked eh? Poor Dawn not even special. I kinda of like this idea that she is marked and kept track of by Sweet.
a fool who plays it cool by making his world a little colder. Who would have thought that Sweet would offer such good advice? That is what happened...she made things so much worse for all of them (especially Spike) with her denials and dirty secrets.
I hope they stay friends in spite of the odds. I like the idea of human (ish) Dawn being Aunti Dawn to Eriddny’s eventual offspring.
Buffy would be very angry with Angel for the whole not telling about Connor that's for sure. I think Dawn is right in not spilling right now though. It isn't her secret to tell.
Really enjoyed the story and so glad your muse insisted you finish it. I LOVE that Sweet is invested in Dawn's well being.
Thank you so much for commenting. Glad you liked the ending. I was determined to finish it before getting on with challenge story. Mind you, no one seems to have noticed it is finished! Apart from on another site where the latest comment was :when you gonna finish this? Not even a please or thank you! EF readers are far more polite!!
I liked the auction scene, well done. Sweet sort of stole this chapter. He was a special kind on the show, so I could see him act like this.
I have enjoyed this story, the "normal" problems and the supernatural ones all combined. Following Dawn and her friend was good and the ending seems a bit hopeful for Buffy and Spike.
Thank you. So glad you liked the story.
Well now they can go rescue Dawn and get everyone home safe.
I hate that Buffy still thinks Angel would be so efficient at finding Dawn. Spike's no slouch and he loves Dawn even if he's not as concerned as I would have expected.
So glad you've returned to finish this one up!
Spike does need to get his mind on saving Dawn and out of the bedroom. Then again Buffy is a right bitch towards him and ignores his feelings too much. What a pair.
Dawn is going to be in such trouble.
15 year olds and a bar is never a good mix even if one is a demon. Kinda scary if Eriddny starts going through that phase too.
Poor Spike always having to compete with Angel for the women he loves. I don't know why anyone would pick Angel over him but that's his history.
I kinda like the idea of Dawn hanging out with demon teens. Somehow it seems appropriate.
More than delighted you are re-reading Storm. Yes, I love the idea of demon teens and all their disgust and disdain of the older people who understand nothing! Nothing at all!
