 Thank you for the realistic but happy ending. I was nervous about how it would end because there was so little time left and I knew they had to end up taking time to work on themselves while apart. I wasn’t sure if I would feel a total lack of closure, but I didn’t. So thank you for that.

Holy hell, none of that was what I was expecting! It looks like I won’t be going to bed for a while, I have to keep reading...

I know the ending is supposed to leave me with hope but I'm really focusing on whether they get back together and I'm torn. Great story, rough content but I knew what I was getting into. Thanks for the good read, off to a fluffy one haha

This is an incredibly good story, although extremely difficult for me to get through in some parts, due to my own life. Very well plotted, good characterizations, tight writing, excellent psychological aspects. I like the bittersweet yet hopeful ending; it fits with this dark story not to have everything tied up in a fluffy, spuffy bow. The warning at the beginning about the age of the victim is irrelevant; this story is triggering to anyone of any age who has survived an attack, because it will bring up those issues of loss of control, powerlessness, terror, etc. She writes this stuff too well, drops you right in it. She showed Buffy reclaiming herself over the trajectory of this story, which was good, but I wish she had included a chapter of Buffy getting training in self-defense, specially since Buffy is going off to college alone. I need to read something fluffy and funny now to get my head in a better place.

I have such a sick feeling while reading this story. There's too much specialized knowledge in it, like the author has direct experience dealing with rape survivors or possibly is very close to someone who has been through it. It's making me very anxious. The convenience store scene is particularly disturbing to me. And that advice that Spike gives Buffy before she goes to the store? Had to get up and walk away from the computer. But I want to finish the story, because I think she is taking us on a tale of healing, coping, and overcoming. And I hope it's a love story at the end.

That's a good ending, showing them figuring themselves out, and figuring out how they can be together....

I especially liked the bit with Spike before Buffy called - your writing there was really good. By focusing on the details, like when he was smoking, you created this feeling of time passing slowly, the way it does when you're bored or waiting for something to happen.

Thanks for sharing your story!

Poor Faith. I guess I said that already but....

Now that Buffy's finally found her, maybe she'll be better able to do that "moving on" thing her mom keeps talking about.

Favourite line:

“I’d be glad to help,” Spike said. “But I’m here unofficially.”

Things are really moving along now! I've been really enjoying the mystery part of this story and I'm almost sorry to see it looking like it'll be concluded soon.

“It’s okay,” Cordelia remarked. “You’re spunky and it’s growing on me.”

Haha! I love Cordelia.

It's really nice to see Buffy learning to stand up for herself. (Also, Joyce still makes me mad!)

Oh dear. I know there are good reasons for it, but somehow I don't think Buffy's going to be very happy if Spike breaks up with her for his own good.

I hate being right.

Poor Buffy. And poor Faith.

I have a feeling that Buffy's going to remember more soon and that it's not going to be pretty when she does. You've got me worried!

Wow, Buffy doesn't mess around, does she? She's very admirable here, showing both kindness and strength by taking on a difficult task in order to spare someone else pain.

Oh, interesting backstory for Spike. I like how you worked his canon relationship with his mother into a modern setting.

As someone who does a fair amount of housework, all I can say is I sure hope they licked all that ice cream off each other before it got all over the sheets and blankets.

Also, Buffy's had her ups and downs but it does look like she's gradually becoming less afraid. I'm glad.

What a flirt! Haha, I was going to say something serious but I forgot it because of the ice cream scene.

Okay, I like how when Buffy gets mad, Spike gets mad. I mean, it makes things difficult between them for a time, but it reminds me of their dynamic of the show.

The plot thickens! I'm super curious about what happened to Faith. I hope she's not dead!

“You amaze me,” he whispered. Her fingers combed through his hair as she gave him a womanly smile.


“And you still owe me ice cream,” Buffy said.


I like a girl who knows her priorities. Ice cream > boyfriend, yep, pretty much.

They're becoming quite the team, aren't they? I like it. And I like seeing Buffy assertive.

...I really don't like Joyce right now. I can't stand parents who try to control their adult children, it makes me mad!

I was wondering if it would be Faith ... and things still aren't looking good for her, yikes.

Interesting backstory for Willow and Xander - and it gives both Spike and Buffy someone to relate to, which is neat.

...They're being cute. I don't know how to handle this after all the drama from earlier. I'm scared something bad is going to happen!

Catryona commented on Chapter 7 on September 05, 2017 10:24pm

I have to admit, I kind of wanted to slap Kate and Cordelia for laughing at Buffy. I mean, they're both professionals, haven't they worked with enough people in Buffy's situation to know how something like that could be taken the wrong way...? But I dunno, maybe she appreciated it after she realised they weren't laughing AT her.

Wow, I was expecting things to go south, but not quite THAT far south. I wonder how they're going to straighten this out?

Well ... I didn't expect it would be all rainbow s and puppies from the start, so I'm not disappointed. It makes sense. They both have stuff to work through before they can really engage with each other on a healthy level, I guess.

So Buffy's not quite as over her crush as she made out earlier, huh? Somehow I'm not surprised. : P

Catryona commented on Chapter 3 on September 05, 2017 10:03pm Liked

...Oh. They already caught the guy? Somehow I didn't pick that up before. Suddenly it makes a lot more sense that people wouldn't believe her when she said there was someone else - I mean, if they already caught her kidnapper and didn't get anything out of him on top of there being no evidence to support her story ... this is looking kind of bad for the other girl right now. If she exists. I want Buffy to be right, but I don't want her to have to find the body of this girl if she was hidden somewhere else and never found, you know?

Ha, I love Buffy cleaning the place - it's a nice callback to her behaviour after Joyce's death in canon.
