I can't believe how you managed to pull all the threads together in this one! *bows*. It's prequel is still my favorite, but this was a rip-roaring story, for sure. I love the Spike and Oz friendship. The one big happy family of it all at the end. There were more than a few surprises, and some things I apparently remembered incorrectly, so it was almost like reading a whole new story. Great fun![Report This]
Started this one and was immediately sucked in. Turns out (not having read it as many times as I have Legions) it's almost like a new story. I remember that Buffy was pregnant (and had a baby later on), and as other characters pop up, I remember them, but as far as plot goes? Nothing. Nada. So I'm all set to be surprised and amazed as it develops. I did my reread of Legions in two days; I really can't afford to give this one that much time, so it will be a slower process. But I expect to enjoy every minute of it.
This is not one I remember re-reading back in the day (but maybe?), so, while it's coming back to me in bits and pieces as familiar names pop up, it's almost like reading for the first time. I hadn't remembered Rose's death, for instance; nor that Spike was travelling with Lydia. I remember why Buffy is barfing.... Looking forward to following the adventure later this weekend.[Report This]
Personally, I would have gones nuts if I hadn’t seen my child for that length of time. When I had my 2nd by C-section, he was in the same room as I was. However D was full term. Parents of preemies must go nuts with the not holding thing.
The TV show was “Spencer” or the standard spelling of the name. Thanks for writing how you chose the unconventional spelling.
And the missing Quentin appears. Groan.
This is a FANTASTIC tale!!![Report This]
That counting digits thing seems to be instinctual. It’s the first thing I did with each of mine.
It appears as if Xander were totally ignorant Esme’s physical appearance. Seems he should have been clued in during meetings.
How about give Esme eternal youth and then kill her. I like that much better. No way will she just disappear simply on a request.
In the meantime, where are Quentin and his goons/. Did they leave town?
And why is Xander not freaking out over the slayer essence being demonic?
Robin is inadvertently making things worse!!
Re Oz’s statement about having a hoe in his van. I carry one in my SUV also in case I come across some wild growing plant that I want.
Ooh this guy is like Dalton! And I’m surprised that he was a recruit considering the Initiative’s mission and all.
“…more goodies lying arund than a morgue after a massacre.” Fantastic line! And LOL re “Maggie wasn’t a monster, after all.”
I love how Havi can see right through some people.
Esme must be filled with rage to do all that. Their deaths are on Quentin’s head because she was a known quantity and yet he sent his men in to die.
Hoping Buffy and Willow remain safe.
Xander’s an extrovert who feels the need to oput words into any silence. It shows how much of an introvert I am that it annoys the heck out of me. It seems to be more than usual as if he is using speech to make up for the loss of sight.[Report This]
Why would Xander even entertain the idea of fighting a guy in a coma?! The one he needs to listen to is Havi and not the runaway thoughts in his head. It all comes down to communication once again.
I kind of thought Willow knew the deal or maybe Giles did not tell her Havi’s info.[Report This]
Maybe Cordy’s vision has to do with the upcoming convergences of the baddies against Buffy?
I like the way you link back to small details.
Now that Maggie is on Spike’s trail no thanks to Robin, please do not let him get chipped.[Report This]
