Awwwwww. That was a very sweet iade, Biffy waiting alone for her birthday to finally pass, and Spike coming to pass the time with her. I love how he understands he, does not try to push her or get her to tell him what she wants from him; he already knows. He has always known. So they sat, barely an inch between them, staring into the dark back yard. He was breathing in time with her, and she idly wondered if he did it on purpose. Timing his breath to match the human he’s with. Memories raced through her, unbidden, proving her theory wrong. This seems like nothing, but it felt like such an important part in the story to me. It reminded you of how much history they have, how many different things they've been through together. They hated each other they fought each other, they had rude terrible sex with each other, they found peace with each other. Their past is extremely complicated, and brought them to exactly where they are now. I think it was perfectly placed in the story to remind the reader of that, and to set up the reminder that Spike has always known. He is always seen write down to the deepest parts of Buffy. He was her Ally when she really needed it, she told her truths that she refused to see for herself, he was the dark and disgusting monster that she wanted him to be, and then he went and got the one thing that could possibly make her look at him differently... A soul. And it worked. This was such a sweet little story. They just sat in silence, waiting for her birthday to go by, because Spike knew exactly what she was doing out there. That was proven by him telling her happy not birthday after midnight had passed. See, again that's the author showing us exactly what we need to know about them. Letting us come to the conclusion on our own, not spelling it out for us, just showcasing how wonderful Spike and Buffy are together. I think this little fan fiction was beautifully written, and I enjoyed it very much. Thank you for it, have a great day.[Report This]
for such a quiet little piece, this packs a punch. I think the small moments are what make a strong relationship and this one is a beautiful example of what they could have had if the writers were a wee bit kinder. Thank you for sharing a sweet little moment that I can imagine in my head as fitting into the season so that everything is not doom and gloom every moment.[Report This]
