Spike should have more dignity and not always be treated like a carpet

I missed the passage where Buffy invites Skipe back into the house. Where is it?

What an absolutely splendid effulgent ending to this wonderful tale!

They sure are being fast and loose with Dawn’s identity in the face of true evil.   But at least Glory knows ahead of time how the brain damaged could aid her..

You have just the RIGHT words coming from Spike and his little digs too.  Love the “damn memorable” remark.

You are really good with the mercurialness that is Spike!

Xander is ALWAYS oblivious to implied speech right under his nose.

Of course Angel knew about the lack of soul.  It’s a demon ability to suss that out.  

I'm really loving the dialogue.  It's gotten increasingly better with each chapter.

That was certainly a very creative way to out the Key.

Yes,  Buffy is about about carpe diem finally!  In more ways than one.

Uh oh!  Why the heck did Buffy put down Spike by telling Angel THAT?!    That river of denial thing again.   

Excellent come backs on Spike’s part.

And Buffy didn’t mention that said articles were at her place and not in the crypt LOL.  

Hey in canon, Glory did see “the curvature of the earth” although courtesy of Willow.  

“Friend-adjacent”??  Is that a thing?

Good detail with the “Mr Couuldn’t-Wait-Til-Saturday”!

When did he leave?

Good that Spike was thinking with his brain instead of his nether region or he would have missed that bit of comfortable interacting.  


Smack me with a spoon with that last revelation!!

Yeah, that was a pretty cold way for Spike to find out.  But good that he sussed out that the real reason for the barrier.  


Inventive way to get Spike there at the moment of Joyce’s demise.   Will Buffy grill him?

And how does Dawn know which tees belong to Spike when they are all black?  The smoke could be explained away as Buffy hanging around Spike and it got onto her clothes.  


Good segueways.

With this fic,  I sussed that Harmony has some depths to her that Spike completely ignores.  But he goes after the unobtainable.  

I love how  Buffy compartmentalizes portions of her life and never the twain shall meet.

This was very fun to read. I liked how you shifted the plot after different decisions.

Love the different POVs... And Clem as the dating guru... he is right of course! But Spike is not one to be rational is he? Just follows his instincts. As to Buffy - she is authentically obsessed with that river in Egypt... Love this passage

So these guilty feelings were silly. She was silly, for making such a big deal out of it. She had just been proving a point to Spike, and now the point was proven. 101%. She didn't want him, she wasn't going to kiss him. She wasn't even going to think about how his lips were really nice and full and soft, or the way he had been surprisingly gentle but passionate, or how it had barely been a kiss, not really, so it didn't even count, which meant she could totally break down his door and say that they should have a free trial. Then he'd do that little seductive smile and that thing with his tongue that sent little bits of electricity through her body, and then they'd be kissing, just wrapped up in each other and not talking. Well, except he could maybe say her name every now and then, in that husky kind of tone he had sometimes...

Thank you so much! I just adore Clem haha.

Love this...

Fighting alongside Buffy was like having a whole set of extra limbs, only you never quite knew what they were gonna do... She was a Slayer, probably the best one the world had ever seen, but she was also wild. Like him. More like him than anyone he'd ever known, and God, what a rush. To see that look of passion on her face, even though it was bloodlust and not, well, the other kind. Made a bloke feel good...

Okay, I'll leave an actual story review when I finish, but I have to say that I love your Buffy-speak.  I mean

"What amazing control of the English language, her inner Giles Giles-ded."


Author's Response on September 26, 2017 05:37pm

Hahahaha thank you!! Buffy Speak is one of my purest joys in life so I'm so glad that it works for you and doesn't come across as over-the-top:)

This was such a delightful AU! I always wondered how the Glory fiasco might play out if the Fang Gang was involved, and - lo and behold - you've provided a fantastic reality for it. I'm not entirely certain what to make of the scene that brought Spike and Buffy back, as the beings talk about soul entanglement, but yet Spike doesn't seem any different? thinking

Overall, a captivating and believable romantic path, as well as a very satisfying one. Thank you for sharing!

Author's Response on September 15, 2017 04:15pm

Thank you so much! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. 

My concept for this was that Spike was gradually "regaining" his soul in the way that mattered - he was becoming less selfish as the story progressed, culminating with self-sacrifice. Sort of a Beauty & the Beast type thing. By recognizing his spark of humanity and trying to save him from dying, Buffy indirectly shared her soul with him. When TPTB allowed her to be revived, his soul necessarily came along with hers because of that action. But he's not guilt-wracked and insane like in canon - he's been slowly retrieving his soul all throughout the story so it's not so much of a shock to the system (plus it's possible that Buffy's soul is playing a protective role). I definitely feel like I could have made that clearer, but I didn't want to spoil the ending for people reading along and hindsight's 20/20, haha. So he really isn't different from the Spike of earlier in the chapter, but he should be different from chapter 1/canon S5 Spike.

Wonderful alternative reality to the series - I think your use of Angel and Faith and the AI Team is very effective - congratulations on creating this work.

Such a great exploration of Spike and his need and wanting a real love - even if he wants so badly to accept all the delusions of Buffy Love.  What Buffy, IMO, if offering is simply not of merit to match what he needs.  Either he can be accepted as he is and they can work together toward making changes for both that will support a mature, long haul love or she cannot accept him.

all because of her. Because she had to get them involved in this. Because she couldn't handle her job. Oh Buffy you always take too much on yourself! If you have to blame anyone other than Glory and those Knights then blame the Monks who decided to make Dawn and send her to you instead of ... I don't know maybe send the Key to another dimension? Buffy always took too much responsibility even for things she couldn't possibly be held accountable for. It's both endearing and maddening.

Giles had no doubt that he would take Buffy's side and do everything in his power to keep Dawn alive. Angel, on the other hand, could be persuaded. Yeah I'm surprised Angel didn't already try to kill Dawn ... you know making the hard choices for Buffy for her sake of course!

a simple dagger in his pocket. His fingers closed around the knife as he reminded himself of his resolve.

For the greater good… Yes because starting Dawn's blood to flow will fix everything *eye roll* Giles is sometimes quite the idiot.

Both of them, Spike and Buffy, were just self-sacrificial morons. Pretty much.

Intervention of a good kind then. Reward for both even if they didn't really want to give one to Spike (he earned it though. Planned on sacrificing himself even before Glory showed up. No thought that he'd even get to see Buffy again much less "get in her pants" either.).

like a seed of something had been growing and all of a sudden it was in bloom. Or like a spark had turned into a blazing fire. Yes he was growing his soul I think or something of the kind. 

I enjoyed this one once again. Nicely paced and well told story.
