Cool plot and great visuals, especially at Stonehenge. Loved it!

Nooooooo 😲 how does this finish? What happens to them, and Giles? Is there a sequel? I hope so! Great story, by the way

Hi, and thank  you for all your comments on this story.  Sadly there is no sequel.  Well, in my head there is, along with lots of other sequels and further chapters for the wips!!!   But I like to think of it as a finished story in lots of ways.  Would Giles kill Buffy?   For the greater good?   Hmm, that's a very tricky question.  If you could have killed Hitler when he was a teenager, knowing what would happen in the future, would you do so?  A question that has been debated over and over again with no great conclusion!   Have you had a look at We Will Remember Them  yet.  Again a Giles problem and also the story that ruined my brain!

Obviously something is wrong with Giles. Ok, he fucked things a lot but killing Buffy, even if it's for the greater good... No way.

Really, what's wrong with Giles? Always hating Spike. Even on the show, ai never understood why he was able to "forgive" Angel but keep being against Spike, they were such cute roomies...

I loved the reunion! The "I hate you-hate you- but not really", it reminded me of Spike's song "let me rest in peace". I would have loved this chapter to be a bit longer and see them going one after the other before getting together. Still, great start! 👏

Willow is brilliant! I, for one, have never wished to be a child again. Maybe younger once or twice but I’m enjoying getting more wisdom and self confidence as I age.

So glad this ending is not so anti-climactic as Willow would have it though.

I still find it freaky that Kennedy is all research girl so different from canon.

Giles is so full of himself. It all sounds good but no compassion.

Are Buffy and Spike going to be like the incredibly ravenous beings on Neptune in an old episode of Flash Gordon (50’s TV show not Buster Crabbe)?

So it wants more people to make a Blobby or whatever world?

It does seem as if Giles had a huge change of mind but he had that when he read Wesley’s last note. Maybe he’s getting meaner and he thinks the same will happen to Spike?

Looking forward to a more vivid description of the thing with a heartbeat.

Kerflunking?

I think it’s sad that Buffy has forgotten what Giles and Robin tried to do to Spike or rather failed to give it enough import as to future actions.

Heaving and bobbing. And it’s THE BLOB!

Giles is somehow affected in the way that he thinks vampires are affected it seems.

So by your heading, I’m taking it “the Punchbowl” is a real place. I thought you made it up like another version of hellmouth.

And Giles with the jumping to conclusions again which is why they should all be together but therein lies the conflict too.

Hi, fascinating to see that someone is reading an old story of mine!  Do hope you are enjoying it.  Yes, the first chapter was written for Christmas 2005 !!!

I think it was a present for someone on another site.  It had a sweet, sexy ending in the park, then I got inundated with requests to extend the story, so I did.  And yes, The Devil's Punchbowl is a real place in Surrey, England and at that time the A3 road skirted round three quarters of it.  The last quarter is a road called the Hog's Back. All very primitive.  I have climbed down to the very bottom and it is exactly as described.  The road has been moved since then and there is now a tunnel for the A3.   Also, the graveyard and church at Emsworth on the Hampshire coast is exactly as written.  Both my parents are buried there.  

There are a lot of grammatical errors - but I tend not to go back and edit because it is a record of how I was writing at the time.   Hope you enjoy it and some of my other stories.  I'm particularly fond of Cousin Arabella, Strip Snap,  We Will Remember Them and Business as Usual.

It’s a shame that Giles and Willow rejected them when they could have been working together as down to the wire time rears its shaky head.

“You think its a sort of cloaking device- like you get in some bloody sci-fi move. Start (sic) Trek or Star Wars?” Or THE MIST!

Giles called Spike a “mad dog”?! So he conveniently forgot about the soul.

I suppose there are more Americans who grew up on farms milking cows than in England so I don’t think it’s odd. Small self sufficient farms. Daily tasks and all.

But those vamps in the cemetery dusted…

Hee hee re Giles as a 10 year old. I failed to see the date on this pic. You probably came up with the idea before the comics.

Joyce commented on Chapter 3 Miles to go.... on November 12, 2017 02:06pm Liked

It looks like Buffy is becoming quite anglicized. “Hang on.” Most Americans I know say “hold on”. We do use “hang” to make a turn. “Hang a left” or whatever.

And it’s the country and Buffy did not wear a sweater and it’s always colder in the country than in a city yet she always wore sweaters and coats in Sunnyvale. Not so smart.

Interesting disease result. Is this static or do they regress?

What a shock for Giles! It appears that he did not know about Spike but how did Buffy find out beforehand?

Currently, there is a antibiotic resistant version of The disease, I’ve read.

OK in this story Buffy goes on a binge with The Immortal due to Spike not calling?! Interesting take.

Somehow I can’t picture Giles being all destructo spelling even if the technology is new to him.

So glad Buffy didn’t remain stupid Slayer. No room for doubt in that declaration.

Sweet, but yeah, the ending is kind of anti - climactic...

Author's Response on March 17, 2017 05:53am

Thank you for reading. Sorry you didn't like the ending but I thought it was just right because this story was all about change and the future, which, of course, they are still living!

ScarlettDuck Replied on March 17, 2017 11:25pm

Sorry for reviewing when I was dead tired -- 2:00 am and I've been sick... very fuzzy headed! I didn't "not like it..." just it was a lot of really good build-up and not much happened with it. Like it seemed like the Giles thing was really going to come to a head, and it seemed like you were setting Willow up to be the go-between to fix everything between Buffy & Giles and then it didn't go there. I like that she and Spike are going on together to face the world... but that does seem like it's begging for a sequel to tie up that plot thread !

Author's Response on March 18, 2017 06:40am

Hmm, yes, I do see your point of view.  I think at one time, I had roughed out the ideas for Willow and Giles and Xander to be waiting for them all to arrive in the States, wondering what would have happened to them en route, but I never took it any further.  Hope you're feeling better.  You'll need to be clear headed if and when you tackle We Will Remember Them….    I'm anxious to have your opinion. l I know you will spot the mistakes!

Author's Response on March 13, 2017 09:31am

When this story was written, it was still very undeveloped as a site.  Now there is a visitors' centre, lots of walk ways and fences, etc. But on a foggy day, it still gives you chills.
