I'm really confused at this point
Ah yes, you have reached the point where for some reason my nice, sexy little story took off to a completely different place. Do stay with it - I think it is worth the ride!
This is the first story I've read that brings up the survivor's guilt that Dawn must have experienced. Poor Dawn. And Buffy's sacrifice followed so closely after the loss of her mother, and then she learned her origin was a ball of green energy; no wonder Dawn behaved badly. No child could cope with this much trauma without acting out.
Oh, please make Buffy mistake the clan name as Oreos; even funnier. Buffy and words, not so mixy.[Report This]
Interesting existential dilemma re: William getting a vote on his continued "life" vs bringing back Spike. Could be like a multiple personality disorder in a human, and they need to find a way to integrate this William personality with the Spike personality. Kind of heart-breaking that this William, while a vampire, is still a good man: he has no knowledge of the century-plus of evil done to and by Spike. It's also interesting to see how much of William is in Spike.
Good poem! And once again, it's Anya who makes things perfectly clear. But they've already done it lots more than 3 times. Something else must be going on.
Ha, Buffy's driving adding that extra frisson of terror to William's first experience in a horseless carriage. Chuckling at William's good manners when engaging the Scoobies for the first time. And Anya, always the first to get it, and always ignored by the others. William is hilarious: screwing her into a near coma, but then insisting on politely calling her Miss Summers.[Report This]
And Buffy thinks to herself with respect to William/Spike's talents, "Sex is your art. You make it with your tongue, lick after lick. That final gasp. That look of satiety..." Sorry, couldn't resist the hotness of innocence plus natural talent that is William.[Report This]
Oh, fun: innocent, virginal & confused William, but he catches on quickly.
So glad you are enjoying the story. Look forward to your views on further chapters! Thank you for reviewing.
This is lovely, but I could use a bit more about how they get on afterward... all of them.
A minor quibble: the Americans (especially Buffy) sound very, very British.
Glad you liked the story but sad you thought the ending was a bit soft. Actually, this was a story that was beta'd by an American or two, if I remember correctly. I have given up trying to please everyone in the States because it seems that it varies from State to State what they consider to be "American".!! And anyway, if I have to read how Giles and Spike are written in practically every story I read……..!!!
Good thinking, Buffy. Nice to have Spike back.
Ah, glad you read on. It does all make sense, you know. Well, it will eventually! You've a long way to go yet! And some people really struggled with the plot, so that was why I explained the charms at the beginning of chapters.
