This story is so brilliant and inventive and I’ve never come across an Anya-swap before, so it was that much more exciting :D I loved how you addressed the way Anya is treated like garbage in the series and how Buffy rectified that once she was in Anya’s body. And seeing the slow romance between past-Buffy and Spike was just wonderful. Exceptional story and I loved it![Report This]
Aww... this was such a cute read! I realise that you published this story ages ago and might never read this comment, but just in case you ever do, I wanna thank you for sharing this story with the interwebs. It was a lovely time, the idea was hilarious (you're right, nobody takes poor Anya seriously!), and seeing Buffy and Spike manage to have a decent relationship after all gave me the warm fuzzies. Thank you!![Report This]
I really like this story. Buffy trying to influence them all while trying to act just like Anya worked really well, right to the point where past Buffy tested her by mentioning bunnies. Buffy’s last few hours with Joyce was really nice, too.[Report This]
Just reread this and loved every moment. Such a unique time travel story. I really enjoyed reading it again.
I'd love a one shot (actually I'd just love if you were writing again) where you deal with those "babies" Anya mentioned that Buffy had at one point. Then again that is what my own imagination is for I suppose.
Thanks for a great read.
“My unusual speech and sexual openness have been there since I was a human the first time. Why, did you think that it was because I was a demon? How many other demons talk like this?”
And Buffy couldn’t remember a single one.
I love this story and I loved that line.
This was pretty cute, but the story had some logic issues that confused things a bit. Also, you said in an author' s note that you were going to alwats call them Past!Buffy and Buffy would be the one from the future, but sometimes you'd have a scene with Anya (who was really future Buffy) and Buffy (really past!Buffy), and then later you'd have a convo between Buffy (future Buffy) and past!Buffy... sometimes this was on the same page, so sometimes Buffy refered to the past one and the future one within a few paragraphs... confusing![Report This]
I've read this fanfic three times now and loved it each time. What a great story! And everytime I look at that banner I get freaked out. I had no idea Buffy and Anya looked so similar aside from the blond hair.
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm so glad you liked it. :) Yep, Anya and Buffy can look frighteningly similar sometimes, especially with that expression! ;)
