Oh wow, this story has such a fascinating premise! I love what has been written so far and, if there is ever more, I enthusiastically look forward to reading that too!

La suite et c'est vrai que Spike n'est plus le m^me mais si je pense qu'ilaurait aller juste lavoir lui dire qu'il est en vie et repatrir pour attendre que elle viennent.

Must have missed this when you first posted it.    Glad I found it now, though.    Very good story thus far.    Looks like Angel is still the same selfish, self-centered, arrogant, self-important creep,as he ever was.    Champion of the PTB my dear aunt FANNY!    I'm betting Angel got that boost of life from the senior partners, as a way to tempt him back to his bad old life/existence has Liam/Angelus.      He was irredeemable in life, and I honestly believe he was only trying to do good as a SOULED vampire because he was promised a reward - - life and Buffy.   Spike did good with no such promises.   Which of them is the better man?     Buffy being Buffy, she'll probably go for the human Angel and remain blind to his arrogance and selfishness as she always was.   Please tell me you will continue with this.   I am sliding off the edge of my seat!

Oh yes I am going to continue.  I need to finish my Dark Night of the Soul and my Anniversary story Whole (much shorter) and then this one is queued up for me to finish.  

So glad you enjoyed what I already posted.  

Yup Angel and his ego/delusions is front and center.  Sadly he does know how to play Buffy as well as the system.

Thank you!

Story is really intriguing so far. Can't wait for the new chapters!  Great job so far!

I'm going to start concentrating on this story with regular updates as soon as I complete my long one (Dark Night of the Soul) that is taking all my research and writing time right now.  I PROMISE it won't be a WIP without updates for long.

Thank you.

Author's Response on March 27, 2016 10:49am

  • It never did.  Liam was no prize.  Remember he even admitted to Buffy in Amends "Look, I'm weak. I've never been anything else. It's not the 
    demon in me that needs killing, Buffy. It's the man."  He never really learned.

Angel will always think he knows what is best for Buffy (meaning himself but he hasn't that self awareness).

Aaaargh! Typical manipulative, jealous Angel! 

Author's Response on March 24, 2016 03:48pm

Yeah I let Angel work on his worst instincts in this story.  He was pretty much doing that in Ats S5 already with bad choices.   This is a continuation.  He really thinks of Buffy as his and never sees (saw) Spike as more than a place holder, a poor substitute.  I doubt he thinks he's doing anything wrong.

Thank you.

Thank you!  Can't give a schedule for updates (but, hey, this has been waiting 3 years for any updates...mu muse hit the road when I was writing this one) but can and DO guarantee that I'm working on it and it will not onlyu update but cease being a WIP ASAP.  

I love time travel too.

Shit! Yup, I was right! Angel is a sour puss and a freaking ass! I hope Buffy finds out and freaking hands his ass to him! Dammit! I am hating where this flashbacks are going. But I am loving that I am hating this fic. It just means you captured my interest to thw point that you are able to manipulate my emotions. Good job on that and Kudos to you. Can't wait to see what happens next.

Author's Response on March 23, 2016 10:30pm

Thank you!  Glad I've captured your interest.  I hope you like the rest of it when I get it written.  I'm not putting this one on a regular schedule yet, like I said it's been sitting there for a few years.  BUT I guarantee it won't be long and I promise it will not stay a WIP.

Thanks again,

Stupid fucking Angel! What the heck.gave him the right to lie? Dammit! Blue sacrificing herself was surprising but Angel doing something selfish is the real kicker. Fuck I hate his guts in this fic. Hmph! I think I am seeing where this one is going..

Author's Response on March 23, 2016 10:28pm

Angel feels she has a reward and it includes Buffy.  He really thinks Spike is nothing but a poor substitute for himself (in all things).  He was rather like that in canon when left unchecked.  I'm just using the flaw he has for plot purposes.  I have no trouble seeing him do just this.

I'd love to picture Ilyria ruling a demon dimension with an iron fist and quite happy!

Well based on the fact that Willow and Dawn both seem to feel that any possible change would be better than what happened I'd say things get pretty bleak.

I am getting the feel that this Challenge is the same Challenge that another story is using: "Breaking Novikov" from reenasas.  It's a fine fic with a wonderful premise. I wonder if this one will have the same greatness. Well, I'm not gonna judge either way because I  happen to like Time Traveling Fics. I hope this one will be a good read, but if I base my judgement on this chapter, I say you are off to a good start. Anyway, good luck with it and I can't wait to read qhat's gonna happen.next. Gonna see the next chapter to find out.

Author's Response on March 23, 2016 10:24pm

Yes.  It was the same challenge.  I wrote these 3 chapters and got stuck when my muse took a fast train far from me.  When Reenasas started her wonderful story I thought about abandoning mine but there can be more than one treatment of the same prompt so now that the muse is back I'm giving it a go.

The prompt was for an auction/fundraiser for a writer who's son died and she needed to bring the body home for burial.  This was a few years ago.  I got these three chapters done and posted only there. I think I still have my original notes but if not I'll let the returned muse lead me forward.

Thanks for reading.

I SO hope The Capo double crosses Angel. 

I'm excited to read this one!

Author's Response on March 23, 2016 08:23pm

This one WILL be completed I swear it but there won't be a schedule of updates until Dark Night of the Soul is completed.  I'm hoping to be pretty quick about it and as soon as I get mu ducks in a row I'll put my full attention on this one.

Keep in mind that Dawn in 2024 indicates things didn't go well so don't expect a double cross.  So glad you are interested and promise it won't be too long before this starts updating.

Here we can see how much of a bastard Angel can be. In this moment we couldn't see any good qualities, not even a hint of remorse for what he planned to do. 

In Spike's thoughts we saw his insecureties, which the soul has made even bigger, not got.

Author's Response on March 23, 2016 08:25pm

Oh yes I do think the soul made him lose trust in his instincts, increased his insecurities (and made him feel unworthy).

Angel wants what he thinks is HIS.  He has convinced himself that Buffy's feelings for Spike are nothing really and possibly just using Spike as a substitute for himself.  Yes, his ego is that big.  He is a bastard...always was!

Thank you for reading and commenting.

Here we got more backstory about what will lead to the future we saw. All the feelings and issues has created a big mess and the situation has potential to get really bad. Even when badly injured, Angel knows how to manipulate people.

Author's Response on March 23, 2016 08:26pm

He is a pro at manipulation.  It is his biggest talent.  Yeah as with most things he sets up it leads to badness.

W got to see the future and through Dawn's thoughts we learned a little about what happened to the characters. Dawn's plan has it's dangers and even if it works it's not a sure thing that she can really change anything.

Author's Response on March 23, 2016 08:31pm

This is truly an act of desperation.  There is no guarantee IF she can do anything and if she can whether it can fix things or not.  It says something about how miserable everyone is in the world as it is that Willow and Dawn think that anything would be better!
