Wow! That was beautiful!
Wonderful look at Buffy's internal musings during Season 7.
Oh Gawd! How i wish this had happened in Season 7! (Actually, I am still kinda pissed that this didn't happen in Season 7! They made it more than evident that Buffy cared deeply for Spike. But they just refused to go there for the fans. ARG!)
And Spike's final question to Buffy at the end of your story just about killed me. It made me tear up. *sob*
Thank you for giving me that special moment. I really needed it!
I really enjoyed this insightful look into Buffy's head, looking at things through her POV was fascinating. Loved the sweet ending too. :D Great story!
Author's Response: Thank you, Irina! Its good to see you. I'm glad you enjoyed this little fic.
Woo! with a side of Hoo! You are one of the very very good writers of Spuffy... Thank you for writing again, Keeping him alive! So good, thanks again.
Author's Response: That is such a wonderful compliment. I thank you so much. I lost heart alot before I stopped writing completely, and really didn't think I'd feel good about writing spuffy again. I tended to focus on all the people that never commented when some really beautiful people were reading and reviewing. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You guys are what makes it worthwhile and I promise to have more of something up here again soon.
Wow, I liked it the build up to one emotionally breath taking kiss. :)
Author's Response: SQUEEEE! You liked the kiss!!! I was worried about writing anything intimate--being that its been so long. I'm glad it worked. Thanks so much for reviewing!
Delightful. An honest tender moment that SHOULD have happened. It would have altered the whole course of the final part of the season and carried over to Post Chosen with Spuffiness galore.
Welcome back! You've been missed. Look, there's a whole flock of pigs flying past out there....
Author's Response: Oh! Look! I think I see those pigs passing by my house right now!! Thank you for making me feel missed. I would really love to get back into writing--even if just to finish off my WIP's. I'll see what I can do, but in the meantime, thanks so much for reading the fic and reviewing it. I'm glad you could see the potential--the show really should have followed this line, dammit!
I feel like a *SQUEEEE* because you're writing again and because this is just soooo beautiful!! *happy sigh*
Author's Response: I'll SQUEEEE back then because you read it, LOL! It actually IS a good feeling to be writing again. I should look into doing more of it!!I'm really glad you liked it.
That was fabulous - glad you shared with us! I've been reading a lot of your older stuff lately, so it's nice to have this new little treat!
Author's Response: You have? That is such a compliment, thanks! Its hard to believe my contribution to the fandom would now be considered old, LOL. Hopefully I'll have some new stuff again soon--and maybe even some new chapters from some old fics that desperately need endings!
That was an interesting character study with their strange, strained role reversal from S6 to S7. The characterization was dead on, including mannerisms and avoidance behavior.
Author's Response: That is the greatest compliment! I was really concerned that after being away so long I was out of touch with their voices. Thank you so much for reassuring me!
Beautifully done. I really thought Buffy was going to chicken out but thank goodness she didn't. Even without words, I'm pretty sure Spike got the message. Great to see you back
Author's Response: Great to see you, too, Lou! I can't believe how much I've missed you all. I'm so pleased you enjoyed the fic--I was veyr nervous that I hadn't fumbled my way through everything!
Welcome back; always delighted to see something from you. This is just lovely and very sweet - in only the very best way! It would have been so nice to see this happen. Thank you!
Author's Response: Thank you, Pin! Like I said earlier, its beginning to feel good being back. I'm actually thinking of other fics, other WIP's that need to be finished, and now I have time again to do it. I am so happy to see you here! I'm glad you enjoyed it.
Perfection. Woderful Buffy voice, captured everything I think she felt in that time of Season 7. @ least in fanfic, she can actually admit it. Loved her still running from the truth, for just a little bit longer, loved seeing that both Spike & Buffy saw the writing on the wall as far as her so-called friends & Watcher went. I loved every second of it, howerver brief. Hope this helps coax the muse out of hiding! :D
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I am so thrilled you enjoyed it. You never know, I do feel a little more enthused to write. This got a much higher response than I was expecting. Thanks again.
