So many things to like about this. The atmosphere builds up in tension and I keep expecting the worst, firstly that the solidity of Buffy's love would prove as dodgy as the awkwardness of her delivery. Secondly that Spike was expecting that good things can't stay. Angel, the big gloomy presence... how kind you are as an author to him. We see his terrible loneliness, his pain over Connor and this terrible earnestness to help.

Most moving of all I found was Buffy's declaration that she couldn't love the baby. Her inability to feel love, that freezing up she's felt ever since season 5, when she talked about it with Giles in Intervention.... she's finally come through for Spike, in this clumsy awkward way, and she's doing her best, with the buying of presents and the shopping for the baby. Shopping is something she knows how to do. And she can turn on the raunch for him, with the trench coast with nothing underneath. And she's doing her absolute best in deeply trying circumstances... what brand new girlfriend could handle an ex's baby dumped on their relationship with such aplomb. But I love how honest she is with Spike that she can't feel the love for the baby. It just feels to me that when she can come out and say that, that firstly I am moved, and secondly it will somehow free something up in her more.

And I love the baby controlling the weather. That's fabulous. :-)

Thanks. I think my understanding of Buffy centers on that desire to love, but inability-- something broke in her finally in S5, when her mother died, and she sacrificed herself for Dawn. 

But maybe, because Spike can love her so much, she can accept that, and give back a little, and it ends up being enough.

 

But... imagine having Illyria as a mother. Scary. You need all the ice-skating aunts you can get!

Oh, yeah, am wondering how the wee mite will go when she's doing her 6 months with Illyria! I think Spike will go mental with worry... :-)

And for the sequel Buffy she's up pregnant with Spike's mystical kid as well!!!

Just kidding, kind of....sort of...not really.... Anyways, moving on. I liked this. It was interesting. I only ever read the first comic so the Spike/Illyria and Angel/Buffy thing kinda threw for a moment there but it didn't dim my enjoyment of the story. I think my favorite part is that Angel wasn't being an was to Spike or about the situation. So yay for that and I like that the ones who took her see human that just made it more interesting to me because it was such a mundane reason for them to take her.

I really think Angel would be a great babysitter! :)

Brilliant idea and thanks for writing as I enjoyed reading this story. I liked how you wrote the relationship between Spike and Buffy in this story.

I'll have to say I really liked Angel and that rarely ever happens.

I knew Buffy would warm up to Anna, she's gonna be the bestest aunt ever. 💚

Anna's family and he missed Connor's childhood so of course Angel would want to spend time with her. 💚

And everyting ends at a good place. Buffy may not be able to be any kind of mother but she can still be family to Anna. Buffy, Spike and Anna living as a family is great. Ther will be many complications  but for now thongs are good. I have also liked Angel in this story.

Author's Response on September 13, 2019 10:44am

Thanks... this is probably my fave type of Angel.

Anna's powers gives a lot of people reasons to take her, this scenario make sense. I liked how they handled this.

Buffy in a trenchcoat with nothing under it, that's a good image. It is good that they are being honest and that Buffy tells him that she feels that she has provlem with loving people.

Of course something bad had to happen and Anna is a target.

Buffy clearly isn't comfortable around Anna. I do enjoy all the interaction and what we are seeing of Anna's powers. I also liked that Illyria missed her daughter and was visiting.

I loved how this allowed Angel and Spike to bond. This naturally made Angel thinking about Connor but also those people that they lost.

Spike had some worries about Buffy but here she is.

 Spike is so cute with his daughter. Just like any parent he os extremely worried that something will happen. She has some fitting powers too. Good last line.

Author's Response on August 20, 2019 09:51am

Thanks-- I had so much fun with this! But it's hard to get a baby's personality to show. Superpowers help. :)

 So much has happened for Spike but his daughter has already become the most important thing in the world, as it should be. This clearly has been a lot to take in for Buffy too and naturally this will create som tension.

I deeply enjoyed this meeting with Illyria. Great writing on the description and Spike's thoughts. I loved the whole setting with this chapter. The baby spending 6 months with each parents make sense considering the Old ones. I liked the name Spike gave her too.

I had to read this story again.

It's clear that they have had some complicated times. It was lovely to see Buffy tell Spike those things, how she wanted to be his girlfriend. It was a sweet ending to the chapter.

I followed a rec link and thought I'd found something I'd never read before.

As soon as Anna was linked to Persephone, big bells started ringing.

Then when Angel went all gooey over Anna, I was certain I'd read it before.

I investigated and discovered I'd read it over on the old Vampire's Kiss.

Love it just as much now as I did then, although I'd still like a follow-on covering when Spike has to hand Anna over to Illyria for six months....

So marvelous. The characters were on-point, the plot was all at once heart-wrenching and heart-warming, and the pacing was perfect. A totally engrossing read. Thank you for sharing!

Agribusiness!! We'll, that makes perfect and horrible sense. I love that Buffy's overcome her driving struggles and is so confident with the getaway.

Yay, fierce daddy Spike to the rescue!
