Interesting reminder that it was human evil that caused the bad in season six.
Also interesting that there is not guilt that the Black Mercy killed Warren. Buffy almost always rejects self defense as justification for harming humans.
Happy Scooby endings all around![Report This]
I loved this ending, it fit everything so well. Poor Giles, trying to do the protective father thing way too late in the game. Spike may as well have laughed at hm, the way he just dismissed the whole threat and idea. Anya is pregnant!! Eep, yay, I never knew that I would be this happy about that. That group needs a little Anya running around and telling them how it is, but she is on the inside so they actually listen. And maybe she will have Xander's goofy sense of humor. Ah, yay. You did a really good job on this story and I could not ever think of a better ending. Spuffy engaged, Council left the heck out if that, Willow healing and Xanya thriving. Thank you for giving them such a nice life.[Report This]
Mercy showed all of the things that they just could not let go of, and because if that now they can. The denial was forced away and then there was truth and a potentially of happiness. I can not wait to read the new update and see how everything is finished up for them. Buffy is finally letting go of all of her baggage and manipulation scars, Xander is finally seeing that is future is up to him and he needs to stop being afraid of turning into his father as if he plays no part in that, and Williw us finally taking responsibility. I am so happy for them.[Report This]
Warm and fuzzy feelings all around! Giles visiting and seeing the wonderful things happening to the children he left was a perfect end to it. I so enjoyed it very much.
Anyway, I loved this fic from start to finish and it was truly a unique and beautiful one. I enjoyed it and even more so seeing everyone so happy. Thank you for sharing this awesome story. It was among the good ones, please remember that!
Thanks for reviewing. I'm sorry that I made you wait for so long.
Wait was worth it seeing this for the ending!
Spike and Buffy are back together again, and they are going to tell everyone, and Buffy is going to actually invest on the relationship. She admitted that she had done him wrong. I am on cloud nine. They are goong to give it a real try.
Tara is telling Willow how it is and standing up for herself. I am so happy for her. I hope that she can help Willow see the light. Also, I think Tara would have LOVED the old Willow.
I am most satisfied with Xander's fate. He faced all of the things that were weighing him down, and Anya helped him work through it. I have a lot of hope for them now. He is so insecure, and really was scarred by Jesse. Thanks for letting Anya be there for him and make him work past this. Out of all this fic has done, I most love the way it has made me look at Xander. Thank you.
What is going to happen to Warren? Will they let him die,no... wil they let him suffer a bit? Maybe. Of course Spike has read some comics XD I hope that their Vegas trip goes well, and that Xander gets his crap together, and that Anya proves that you do not need a soul to love. What is Buffy going to say? I am giddy with anticipation. I am ready for some Spuffy loving.[Report This]
Omg, how did I not figure out that the actors were actually the real people this time? That was SO COOL how you turned it on its head, making Spike the bad guy that fans wanted Buffy with but it got written in that she was with "Xander," instead, and that the real Xander was with Buffy instead of Anya. I LOVE SO MUCH what you did with that. I never would have seen that coming. You did so much better than I could have imagined. Really. The plot of Xander and Willow's dream world, working on a show about Joan the vampire slayer..... yes. Yes, yes, yes. I can not explain how much I love it![Report This]
Oh my gosh, you guys. Could not just let Spike stab the thing or something? Willow had to do it herself, inflate her ego. Will this fic bring back out loving Willow who is not abusing magic? Please?
Spike getting her out was, wonderful. The way you turned his speech in seven into a way to convince Buffy of the truth now, I did not see that coming, but I loved it. Everybody was being so mean to Spike, good thing Buffy noticed they were acting weird. Also, you can not arrest someone because you think they have a history of rape. I am so glad that Buffy saw through it. I enjoyed Spike a whole lot in this chappie. Thanks for writing it and publishing it here for us to read![Report This]
No, what the heck! If Buffy wants to kiss another guy it is her mouth, not Angel's. Cheating on him would be her fault, nothing to do with her friends. He is so possessive, I kust could not. No man is going to control my life. Ugh! You hit me right in my Angel grr ing spot. I have no idea what is about to happen. Why is Spike not telling Buffy that this is not real? I must know what will happen next![Report This]
It is okay that you changed Dawn a bit, I love her to pieces. Honestly, I did not even find her to be out of character. Only trusting Spike and Tara with Buffy? Looks okay to me! If the nerds are up to something else, was it not them who did this to Buffy? Hmmm... so many questions. I think it is cool that everybody could see a bit of Buffy's dream world, and that Spike was the first thought that Dawn had. He is the perfect way to get Buffy out, of course! And everyone else knows that she is right. Humpf![Report This]
I have no idea if I want to look into Will and Xand's fantasy life... actually, I want to know so much about Xander's. He is supposed to be out light at the end of the tunnel, remember. I would love to see him and Anya happy. Yes, yes please!
I thought Tara was just going to be the nurse, but she is Willow's girlfriend too. Aw! I thought that in this fantasy world, Xander and Willow were going to be together. I am pleasantly suprised! What I am shocked and not happy about is ANGEL. WHAT?! How dare he be in Buffy's fantasy world! But she did get a glimpse of Spike eyes during their kiss, and that actually makes up for all of it. Even with her perfect, starcrossed soulmate boyfriend, she wants Spike. She does not even remember Spike, but she wants him. To Sunnydale it is, please! I still like how Dawn was all "Ew, why would we want to go there?" It was cute. I really, truly have no idea what is going to happen next. What is going to happen when Spike finds out about Buffy being trapped in her own mind, again. Is Tara going to be the one to go in and get Buffy? How will Spike feel about not being in her dream world? O need to know so badly, I need to read on![Report This]
First off, I love Supergirl. So glad that teo of my fandoms can mesh behind the scenes!! I love that Xander knows what it is. This so is from the Trio, of coirse they would attack Buffy with syfy mind eating plants, lol. This was such a good idea!
Putting Tara as her nurse was a really cool idea, I never would have thought of that. I like tiny original twists. Very cool. Mommy is alive and with Daddy still, little sister is excited that you are okay, friends are waiting at home and not too busy with their own life, of course Buffy will want to stay. She already misses Spike... that is... so cool. Is this before or after they started sleeping together? Or did you already say what episode this took place in and I just missed it? I can not wait to see what else happens in this fic. It is so interesting already![Report This]
I can understand that Spike thought he was under the Black Mercy's influence.
What we could see with the three couples are that they are starting to communicate. They are talking in a way that they need, they understand thst things have to change and is ready to do that. This is real progress.[Report This]
