But I feel obliged to point out biological error here. It's not possible to have a second pregnancy so soon after the first. There's a period of 4-6 months after delivery, during which the mother produces milk and also REMAINS INFERTILE. It's nature's way of
1) Preventing too much strain on the mother's body
2) Making sure babies are spaced far enough apart to make childcare easier
Glad you liked it :)
I just looked this up, and:
"Many women think that having a baby means that you are “immune” from getting pregnant for a few weeks or even months afterwards. However, this is actually not the case at all. Did you know that a woman can become pregnant as soon as two to three weeks after giving birth, even if she has not yet had a period? Some doctors say that the first few months following giving birth are one of the most fertile times for a woman. There are, however, a few different things that will determine just how fertile a woman is after giving birth.
If a woman is breastfeeding, generally speaking, it is highly unlikely that she will get pregnant. If a woman is solely breastfeeding, and her periods have not returned to normal yet, breastfeeding in and of itself can be around 98 percent effective as birth control."
For the purposes of this fic, assume Buffy didn't breastfeed for long.
A very sweet and fun trilogy. I enjoyed the little world they created for themselves. Wish we saw more details of their lives as the families grow/age, and the new adventures coming.
Thanks for your review!
Stopping at two 'eh Buffy? *smirks*
Man...it feels like the end of an era now. You HAVE to write a seperate story on the new generation of slayers!!
Post series fics are so hard to end since you almost convince yourself that they're canon.
This was the first ever fic i started reading and i think it'll always be my favourite because this is how i imagined life after Sunnydale for them..
First rule of storytelling: always leave them wanting more ;)
Thanks for sticking with the story, over all these months. Your reviews have been greatly appreciated.
Ha! "I've knocked your sister up again." - totally made up for the sad Serenity feels.
Very curious if their opposite prediction will turn out to be true.
Time will tell.
I'm surprised Buffy wasn't pregnant with Jay earlier considering she and Spike were at it like bunnies! Only now do the babies start to come along one after the other. Nice surprise though. Wasn't expecting it.
Beautiful story with a beautiful ending. *jumps for joy for the epilogue*
Your review has me grinning like a mad thing. Thank you! I've had a lot of fun writing this - making my favorite couple happy.
I've enjoyed the journey too. After The End was the first ever fic I started reading and the trilogy remains my favourite set of stories to date. I got a lot of inspiration for my post series trilogy from you which I'm grateful for :)
They do deserve a happy ending
Oh, you've made my day!
You've made mine! I don't think I would've started writing if I hadn't seen you on fanfiction.net. I'm so glad I did! I'm sure everyone knows what I mean when I say that writing gives you a feeling of satisfaction and pride that you don't get with other things.
I'm gonna go check out your fics...
*hides behind pillow*
I wouldn't begin to compare them to yours xD
Ssshhh! I'm sure they're great!
Willow and Xander should have preparied Catlin before Willow said anything, sometimes they don't think enough. Buffy and Spike are used to strange things, I do think they were to calm to what Jay did though.
They were so calm it worried them lol
There are certainly some plot twists. Willow wasn't very sensitive with her timing. *sigh* I can never decide if I want them to end up together in post-series verses. But anyone's better than Kennedy.
Ooh a wedding in England! Good for Giles. He lost Jenny and Joyce, and now that Olivia's grown a backbone in this verse, I think Giles is due some married merriment.
Hmmm... floating baby. More research![Report This]
I'm surprised Spike and Buffy reacted so calmly about Jay levitating :')
Willow may have wanted to explain the full story to Caitlin in private first before announcing it to everyone. She should've been one of the first to know.
I noticed a couple of typos I think(forgive me if they are right and I've just read the sentence wrong) that made quite a difference to the sentence.
"I think you’re due a snog,” Is this meant to be to Spike? Or 'song' to Jay?
"they both watched Jay levitate above its crib." Should its be 'his'?
Let us fetch you the 'Queen of Plot Twists' crown ;)
They reacted that way instinctively, not logicaly :)
Feel free to point out typos to me any time you find them. You're correct with the second one - it should indeed be his crib. The first one, though, is said to Spike, in reference to Giles comment in the previous chapter.
“If I’m wrong I will snog your husband,” he stated.
Oh I remember now :)
Nice fic (and Triliogy). Lots of interesting plot turns. It's good to see things working out for Spike & Buffy (with a few bumps in the road). I'll be waiting on the last 2 chapters.
It's also great to find new Spuffy fiction. Thanks
Thank you for your lovely review!
Only 2 more?! It's gonna be so weird not looking out for an update on this sorry... :(
It seems like generally there will be a happy ending but I'm sure you'll throw a twist into the mix before hand. (Does it count as second guessing this time since you asked us?) ;)
Aww, it'll be okay. Plenty more stories on the way from me to keep up with instead.
*glances at my spoiler folder and grins*
Oh no. Here come the prophecies. We can tell that this won't be plain sailing. I have a feeling that the slayers have something to do with it..
It's a boy! What a nice surprise!
Tut tut, should know better than to second guess me! lol
True. I've learnt that the hard way before. I can't help but blurt out predictions. Is a sign of me enjoying the story however which is a plus :)
So cute! And quite the twist. You had me fooled for sure, but Jay is a cute name and can still honor Joyce.
As for the ending... well done, my cliffhanger padawan, well done.
Love this chapter, especially the old tried and true method for starting labour - not that it worked for me no matter how many times we tried, and the surprise 'twin'. Lol! Actually i'm about to dive in and start work on my 'delivery' chapter for New Day and there are a couple of elements in your chapter that i was going to work into mine. Seeing as I'm such a slow writer, I'm sure noone will read them close enough together to notice the similarities. Thanks for the great work Ellie. Looking forward to the next chapter.
lol, thanks :)
Great minds think alike, eh? I'm sure no one will notice any similarities. So looking forward to your update!
We always knew bondage was gonna come back to bite them eventually!
Great reaction from Buffy during the birth. Something I think we all expected from her. Luckily, Buffy was one of the mum's to have a relatively short labour period! Can't wait to see how both if them react to parenthood![Report This]
