5 years have past. Apparently something bad happened which Joyce blamed on Buffy, at least that's how it seems with the information we have. Having Spike as a roommate is not something that makes Buffy happy. Now we have seen Willow, Xander and Anya too, nice.[Report This]
I loved the way Buffy dealt with Robin Wood. He isn't the good person I'd thought he was.
Buffy paused and met his eyes before she continued. "You love me unconditionally, even when I make huge mistakes. You know everything I like and everything I don't. You never eat the last of the ice cream, and you always cover up my toes in the night because you know I don't like waking up with them cold. You're my lover, my partner, my best friend. I love you, William. I always have, and I always will. This is it for me. You're it for me." Buffy's speech was wonderful and very touching.
Great chapter! I loved it.[Report This]
Buffy found herself paying more attention to things now that she'd taken for granted with him in the past. She made a promise to herself to never take them for granted again. I'm glad that Buffy realized how Spike takes care of her with so much love. He's an amazing man. The three years away from each other cemented their relationship in a way.
Good chapter![Report This]
He put a finger to her lips, silencing her. "It wasn't all you, pet. I spent a long time being angry with you. It was easier that way, easier than letting myself hurt as much as I wanted to. But the blame for our break-up doesn't rest all on your shoulders, and I don't want you to think you've got to carry it. I was an alcoholic, Buffy, and I was acting like a complete arsehole. My drinking was completely out of hand, and the way I acted with that bloke at the hospital was inexcusable." Buffy isn't the only one who made mistakes. His admission of guilt is important for their relationship.[Report This]
Lovely chapter. Certainly there have been major changes in the Spike lifestyle, since he's a rich and famous rock star, but he's still the same person Buffy knew three years ago, and their passion, their attraction to each other are strong as in the past. I didn’t expect Eve's intrusion, but it seems that Spike handled the situation well.[Report This]
He looked across the table at her now, and for the first time, he realized why. Buffy loved like he did—with everything. He didn't think she wanted to—knew she wanted to keep herself guarded—but she couldn't help it anymore than he could. She was slow to open her heart, but when she did, she couldn't hold back what she felt. For the first time in three years, he let himself see what their break-up had done to her, see the pain she must have felt. I loved this part of the chapter. Spike's realization is really important for their relationship. Now Spike knows that Buffy loves him as much as he loves her.[Report This]
