I tried to get into this story but was turned off immediately when Buffy went home checked on Dawn, showered ,got into bed then remembered she beat someone to a pulp and left them in an alley when the person was only try to help.[Report This]
This is exciting - reading a story with Spike setting out to get his soul after one of my favorite of all Buffyverse stories - the tragic relationship that develops after her resurrection and the horrors of the Dead Things episode. After this most compelling and emotionally powerful series of events - I felt what the writers did in the series was utterly unrealistic and a huge plot let down for what Buffy did to Spike.[Report This]
I reallly liked your story. Nice twist Spike seeking his soul before everything becomes twisted. Brownie points for saving Tara.
And I am always a sucker for a happy ending. Thanks for sharing.
i already had a look in on your new fiction distraction with feral kitty Spike, i so hope you will finish it fast so i can read it[Report This]
An astonishing piece of writing! The clever but delicate changes you made to canon were perfect at every turn. I loved your version of events, I loved your character voices and I loved where we ended up! Oh and I read from start finish in under a day, I have done nothing but read your amazing story! Thank you![Report This]
A good description of the aftermath of the battle, both Spike and Anya survived, good. There was a calm feeling here, the peace after the battle. Buffy is determined to make sure Spike knows that he is the one she wants and he got to hold the "touched" speech, nice.[Report This]
The only sad part of how this went down was she didn't get his wonderful speech in the abandoned house. I am glad her friends and sister didn't turn on her though.
I can't blame Spike, what was he to think?
Yes he went expecting to die and quite willing to do so to save them all.
Very glad Buffy took that amulet off of him and is getting him out of the hellmouth! Maybe now there will be time to talk.
She's taking it better than in canon I think. It seemed like she didn't much care if Robin was part of the crew or not after what they tried to do in canon...here she still wants him in the fight. I'd watch my back (or rather Spike's) because I can't see that Robin and Giles would stop with one try.
Sooo, happy! Well, not entirely. I mean, Giles trying to kill Spike still happened and I hated it and well-he was stupid but I love he ending and am so happy with everything. I so cannot wait for the next update! Good luck and hope to see you again soon! Great chapter and see you in the next one![Report This]
It's good to see Buffy thinking like this. The things she said to Spike was also good. He do need to trust Buffy's feelings, some thoughts are not going to change how she feel. The way they walked hand in hand into the kitchen felt nice.[Report This]
