It's Winter here in the Antipodes and Melbourne is back in Lockdown. Although I fully acknowledge our viral woes are nothing like some places in the World it still sucks the big one!

Anyway I decided to curl up under a doona and disappear into some "comfort" tales. Obviously this wonderful story featured amongst my re-reads. 

I remember being on the original journey with you - tenterhooking every chapter and loving the outcome (even the changes! I got to re-read in the middle of the read-read! LOL)

So this is to say a thank-you to you and how grateful I am that, nearly 10 years down the track, your writing talent is still bringing pleasure (and comfort!!!)

Hope you and yours are well. Miss you lovely xxx

You sent me that lovely comment on my actual birthday, I just wanted you to know that! I and mine are well, though of course it's been an interesting year worldwide, and ours was compounded by some other factors as well.

Thank you. It's really an honor to know my stuff is worth rereading. I'm not really writing for Buffy anymore, though I am considering someday coming back to an unfinished WIP or two. No promises, though. But if you're really curious what I've been up to in other fandoms, you can find me on AO3 under the same user name.

Cheers!

Woah, this was so good. Probably my favourite story on here. Would’ve adored your take on a love scene — especially one where Spike is still recovering and has to take a slightly more passive (for lack of a better word) role. I’m sure you would have made it such a warm and tender scene. It’s okay, I can dream :) Very much enjoyed: the growth of all characters stemming from having to face their faults and fears honestly, the healing of Spike and Dawn’s relationship, the sad crazy gardening Santa, Angel being dead LOL. Thanks for posting, loved it.

I haven't read many reunion fics, this is one of the first i was really able to get into and i read it all in one go. It was such a sweet fic to read! I love seeing fics where the scoobies mistakes are acknowledged but they aren't villainized, they got to learn from their mistakes and grow as people and that warms my heart to see.

Just did a reread today.  So good.  Loved having Xander being so smart and kind.

Thanks so much! It's always nice to see people coming back to a fic after it's been posted for a long time.

"Lots o' reasons," offered Spike. "Any of 'em could be true, take your pick. I was older when I was turned, for starters. Stronger personality, maybe. Or Dru was completely barmy and did something different when she made me. Havin' a nest to take care of me, teach me how to do more than follow the bloodlust – fledglings can hardly think of anything but their hunger. Not much room in there for personality when they're still learning how to feed that ravenous hunger. Well – you saw. When you and Buffy brought me home."

This scene is wonderful, I can't help but imagine their voices, low, and quiet, as they discuss hate and nature of man. I really like that you addressed the root of Xander's problems with the supernatural and that Spike has an opportunity to receive an apology for the way he was treated in Sunnydale.

Thank you so much! It's awesome having people still interested in reading this story so many years after I wrote it. From what I remember, I really wanted to address Xander's change in personality in this fic, and his having grown up. Buffy really changed at the end of the season (Season 1?) when she killed Angel, but none of the rest of the characters faced the sort of hardship that forces you to grow up until much later, in Season 6. And then Xander faced some post-canon stuff as well that forced him to change his perspective. I'm so glad you enjoyed this chapter and this fic!

Good. Good job, Spike. This, incidentally, is perfect Buffy-in-character. Avoiding is tempting, but it doesn't work.

Xander, you're a good friend. It's nice to see you grown up and reasonable. And you're right. They are cute.

 Oh, this was good. Difficult conversation, and I love how you handled the Seeing Red scene fallout. Love that Buffy is handling the difficult stuff -- adult and generous.
