I liked what we saw in Buffy's thoughts and later in Spike's,  mostly calm and good thoughts and a great chapter ending.

Author's Response on May 10, 2016 10:51pm

Writing their thoughts like that was a ton of fun, I'm glad it read well :D

The Claiming part was unexpected but it was nonetheless a good kind of unexpected.

There were a lot of speeches and statements in this chapter that I could not help but admire and love though!

  • Her Heaven lived within him, everything else and everyone else be damed. My heart constricted with this statement and I felt all kinds of tingles with this one.
  • "-And the next thing I knew, a week had past, and I had a headache the size of Angel' ego." I smiled at this on with Spike too!
  • "I think I won't be if you don't get on with the anti-platonic soon!" Hahaha! Anti-platonic! That just reached into my word of the day list!

I'd list more but it is hard using my phone to review because I'd have to scroll up and copy the statement or sentence but over all, I loved every words you used in this chapter! I loved it very much and I cannot believe this story is nearing it's conclusion! I loved it and thank you again for sharing this! I shall wait patiently for the update, so until then good luck and see you again at the next one!

Haha, those were some of my favorite lines, thank you!! 

I'm so glad you liked it, thank you for reviewing (especially on your phone, that's a pain!)

You know, if Angel did the same thing to me too and told me he was gonna cal his girlfriend and grovel to her, I'd have the same expression as Dawn did.. thinking

And the revelation about Buffy's mysterious super healing abilities kinda calmed my heart, and answered my question at the last chapter. 

This fic is really getting more and more interesting by theminute and I cannot wait to read about what happens next! Anyway, I shall do just that now and find out! 

Spuffy I m coming!

I'm afraid that mystery is still mostly unsolved, but I really, really hope that you like it anyway ;)

Hot.

I just realized she you described Spike holding his hand over her heart that there were multiple meanings for the title.  Cool.

thank you for the comfort they shared with each other (even more then the smut).  They need tenderness between them.

Author's Response on May 10, 2016 10:39pm

"multiple meanings for the title" Yay!!! ;)

I loved that they could share comfort, it was the main goal when I wrote this chapter... And then there was claiming... and for the claiming there had to be smut... and then the smut took up half the chapter. blush

Thank you for reviewing!!!!

OMG! Angel's totally gonna chafe his willy once he finds out Buffy and Spike are a claimed couple. hahapopcorn

Buffy absently groping him, unaware that he was practically vibrating under his hand? Just wrote itself haha I don't think she ever really knew what she could do to him.

 Hot sex scene - with the teasing it's very them.  The sudden claim, especially initiated by Buffy and taking Spike by surprise was so romantic!  I can't believe there's only one chapter to go.

her chest hurt like a bitch: I think the whole 'Chest Wounds' title and all the literal and figurative chest wounds Buffy's had is terribly clever BTW ;-)

He fell asleep to the symphony of heartbeats and breaths Such a pretty line. I'm glad Dawn was able to reassure him enough that he could get some rest too! 

Angel all caught up in his brooding and not even checking to see if Buffy is really dead made me laugh probably more than it should have. It's a good thing he didn't try snuggling up on Buffy's empty bed- he would have gotten quite the shock from the scent ;-) Dawn and her I'm not telling is hilarious. 

I'm guessing Angel isn't totally over the Buffy/Spike thing yet...

I hope Nina can take the jerk face down a peg or two. 

I'm enjoying this story so much! Thank you so much for sharing :-)

This thing was untitled for soooo long. Honestly, I finally came up with a title after I decided it was time to finish and post it. Like, five minutes before I posted haha. I'm relieved that you 'get' my title lol

Work kept me from reviewing! Catching up now (I read, but didn't have a chance to respond).

Spike, I'm not willing to hurt you anymore: I really appreciated this, Buffy falling all over herself to apologize for her past behavior is very sweet. It's great that it leads to them saying the forgive each other, which is the crux of it. The bad stuff happened- but they've both learned and grown and it's great to see that neither of them need to live there. 

the air around him congealed: you've captured the fun their having that quickly turns to a nightmare for Spike. In my head everything goes slow motion at this point.

“She is The One.”: Has Illyria been watching The Matrix? ;-) Actually you've done a great job dropping hints about at least some of what is up so as a reader I know that Buffy isn't about to buy the farm. 

And knowing that Buffy isn't about to check out allows me to really laugh at Angel and his inept fumbling at trying to come up with something to say. But geez- he's so infuriating.  before they'd even gotten a chance to spoil her purity with their sins. - ACK! Angel! Holy crap. But he would think like that wouldn't he? Buffy as a thing that has things happen to her rather than a real person with her own agency. That he assumes a few presents and nice words well have her back swooning for him says so much. 

I'm surprised he didn't call and book a ticket for Tibet when he sees her, the ass, making her death all about him. Grr. Arg. 

Author's Response on May 10, 2016 01:15am

"forgive each other" thank you, I wanted to address it, but they've both done a little maturing, so... 

" In my head everything goes slow motion at this point." I'm so glad that translated :D

I'm glad that my "slight angst" didn't go too far overboard lol. I wasn't sure if my hints were too anvil-like, but similarly dislike when something happens out of nowhere

I had fun writing that Angel scene. Honestly, if I'd thought about it, I may have had him buy a ticket for Tibet haha

Thank you so much for your review!!!

So Buffy is immortal, it does make sense that she spend time with the Immortal then. This will make a relationship with Spike easier. Hopefully,  Angel's feelings of guilt will stop him from doing something bad.

So, Buffy's immortal. . . . . . .wow, an eternity playing referee between Angel & Spike.      Of course, Spike is still the best thing in that scenario!    Good job. . . . . . . .and Nina should dump Angel, just because he's Angel McBroodypants.      Thanks for the update.

Hmm, I'm intrigued by what's 'wrong' with Buffy.  Also, when she wakes and Spike thinks she's dying and he's maybe promising he'll let her go and not pull her out of Heaven: that was beautiful.

This was really cool! I mean. Sure, Buffy was hurt, probably dying, and Angel acted like a total asshat, but that's okay. It was still so cool and everything that I nearly died until I remembered what you said at the start of this chapter about how you like happy endings and yeah, so okay... Definitely a cool chapter....

Okay, pretending over! What the hec was that?! Talk about major cliche love reunions! She gets killed?! Nooo!!!

*breathes heavily and calms down*

Sorry... But seriously a mind blowing chapter. And totally unexpected! Happy ending, that is what I thought would happen, then BOOM! She gets hurt! That was so over the top man! I loved it so much! Don't take what I said above seriously, I tend to exagerated on my reactions to fics, because truthfully I loved this chapter, well most of it since I hated Angel's arrogant way of thinking. But overall this was a very special chapter. You twisted the tale when it was least expected and when I thought it was the end by adding this one into the mix. Really good job on that. You are keeping your readers hooked because they wouldn't have expected this to happen and then there is the avid curiosity that you stirred in us, making us wonder whether Buffy lives or dies, that was just brilliant! A word of advice though, next time don't warn us ahead about how you plan to take this fic, by saying You like happy endings, it kinda ruins the surprise of getting a happy ending. You want to reassure readers, tell them at the reply for their reviews or try to tell them as cryptic as possible, it'll give us more to contemplate or think about. But this is just a suggestion, you don't have to do it. 

Anyway, this was a wonderful chapter! Keep it up and so excited to read the next one! Good luck and see you again by then! Bye for now

Author's Response on May 09, 2016 12:37am

*snerk* 

My working title was "untitled post NFA slight angst" but "major cliche love reunions" would've described it just as well haha

I warn you guys just because y'all don't know my writing well enough to have faith.... and I know that as a reader, if I were in the middle of a WIP (even a finished-but-not-all-posted WIP) and thought that Buffy was going to die, I'd be all, "wait, there wasn't a @#$&% warning on this thing! What the @%^#  @#$~?" But if I ever write another fic that has Spike or Buffy perilously close to dying, I promise I won't warn you.shocked devildevildevil

It was great seeing Buffy and Spike forgive each other and we could see the joy in their fighting.  Leanne clearly shouldn't be part of a group, her way of fighting would only fit a loner. Everything can't just be going well, so something happening was expected.

What we could see from Angel's thoughts, show us that he's not sure if he really want Buffy anymore, but in his mind she is his. I feel bad for Nina,hhe's ready to just drop her lije that.

Author's Response on May 09, 2016 12:24am

Even when they were enemies (sorta), Buffy and Spike fought well together. Spike has always loved the rush, anyway, and my version of Buffy has finally admitted that she does, too. What could be better than sharing that? Leanne is just too big for her britches, as my grandma would've said ;)

Noted that Angel wasn't out there doing demon clean up from his stupid suicide battle that brought them!  Busy practicing how to get Buffy back (even if he isn't sure he wants her).  Then just as he reacted when she drowned at 16 he just walked away to brood instead of trying to help her.  Oh Angel...you never change!

This Leanne is a menace!  She's going to get all other Slayers who team with her killed!  

Poor Buffy and Spike...just get together and she's gored.  No justice!

OK.  I trust you, you like happy endings.  I may have to keep repeating that to myself.

Screaming angst aside, Angel practicing his speech was brilliant and then going off specifically to brood?  Very funny.

Ah... some good cause for Angel bashing in that little bit.  Great action scene and mortal injury (even though you alluded to the fact that she is immortal now so not gonna stay mortally wounded).

Cool that Blue was willing to help since Buffy is The One to her pet.
