Aw, his mommy did it! Cute. There was kind of a pulled punch, since the Scoobies never built up this hatred of Spike. They never knew him as anything other than an evil stranger. It is very different from Canon, but hopefully it will make the transition easier for Buffy. They get to be a cute little family now[Report This]
OH MY GOODNESS. No. No. She is NOT having William's baby. Oh my goodness, ahhhh I can not even believe what is happening. HOW IS SPIJE GOING TO GET THROUGH TO HER THAT HE CAN STILL LOVE, EVEN IF HE IS EVIL? IS HE WILLING TO TURN GOOD FOR HER? AH![Report This]
No!!!!! What made her stop going to the past? Why can't she see William anymore? How does him trying to kill himself turn into him getting turned two years later? I M so confused. I need answers. I need to keep reading. His Elizabeth went back to America and left him all alone the night she finally gave it all to him. But he does not even know what happened to her yet, how could he just jump - literally - to that conclusion and try to end it all? I am so hurting in my heart. Gah! I must keep reading![Report This]
No. Way. Oh my goodness. Spike just ran away from her! BUFFY! I am so scared, I don't know what to expect. Buffy is going to lose her v card in a dream?! But it'sbot a dream. But what. Oh my goodness. I need to find out more. There is so much I want to say but I can not, I have to read on![Report This]
OH MY GOODNESS! IT IS TIME. IT IS TIME IT IS TIME IT IS TIME. SPIKE HAS OFFICIALLY SPOKEN TO BUFFY FOR THE FIRST TIME, AND UES THAT COUNTS. I have no idea how they are going to reach to each other. Spike has memories of her she surely had not dreamed yet, right? Or does Buffy just disappear and never see Williak again bc she met Spike? I have no idea how you are going to make all of this work out. Gah, the anticipation is killing me. "Of course, if she mentioned recurring dreams to her friends, it would be a one-way trip down research lane and no more William." I think it is so funny that Buffy thinks he will just get researched away, lol, right now she thinks it is just a dream coming from her subconscious. How would you research that? And it hasn't gotten to the point of obsession or anything like that yet, so why would they need to make William leave her mind? Buffy is so funny. Spike is going to propose!!! Er, I mean William. In my head I just call them the same thing. For this fan fiction, I am going to need to remembered to say the correct name, because they are two separate chcharacters in two separate times, one in dream Land and the past and one in the present waking moments. I can do this! But yes, Anee was right I bet, William's wish will not come true of Buffy marrying him. Another thing, it is not weird at all for William to be pursuing a sixth year old, because that is how it was in that time. Women got married as soon as they could bare children and be a good home maker, and sixteen was no where near too young. Angel, on the other hand, is in the current century. Six teen year old girl are not quickly raised up into wives the way they were back in the day. It is completly inappropriate for him to be pursuing her! Sorry to vent, but you just got me going with this crazy contrast, haha. I am loving this fic so much, and eeeepp it is time for the meeting!! I have NO IDEA how you have this go ing down. I am so excited!!! Can not wait to find out, must go read now![Report This]
What a double life she is living! Lizzie and William plus Biffy and Angel was a perfect way to for shadowing the upcoming conflict, which I am sure there will be inside of Buffy. I also lived that she did not give her real name - that way Spike won't feel wigged as soon as he hears the Slayer's name is Buffy - and that you made clear Elizabeth is not her real name, but said why she had given that a day name. "Maybe it was because she had already drawn enough attention to herself without telling everyone she was called Buffy – a name that was unusual enough in hertime. In the two seconds she had to think one up, she chose Elizabeth – a name she knew her mother had briefly considered for her, after her grandmother." Yaaas, work it in subtly and make it smooth. Exposition at its finest.
I did not know how her dream world was going to interfere with her real world, like what the pacing would be, and if it would affect her relationship with Angel at all. I thought she might tell Willow about it, but I kind of like that it is her own litter secret, at least for now. When is Spike going to realize who she is? Gah, I am so excited for this fic!!![Report This]
“Spike do good?”
Buffy stood and raised the stake. Despite the wire between them, Spike flinched, but instead of using it on him, Buffy plunged it into the lock. The door slowly swung open.
“Yes,” she said. “Spike do very good.”
And it was Anne's doing![Report This]
FWIW, I don't think it was at all unreasonable that she's anti-Spike at this stage. She doesn't know him at all, and she's still firmly in the "Spike is a demon walking around in my boyfriend's corpse" stage of her understanding of vampires. She couldn't possibly know any different, she's had no life experience otherwise; Spike is the vampire who most clearly bucked that trend, and she doesn't know him. The only real source about soulless vampires she has is at the other extreme when soulless, and would only tell her vampires can't love.
Honestly, I think if she accepted Spike as being William right away, then that would be out of character/weird/too fast.[Report This]
I'm very glad this story was picked as a Featured Story- it's sweet and a very enjoyable read. I'm very glad you included the very last scene- it made everything that much more poignant.
Of course, now I have the song stuck in my head . . . :-)[Report This]
