I need a glass of wine now... ;-)

a far more insistent part believed that her torment was nothing less than what she deserved- Buffy always put so much on herself, responsibility for everything. It's heartbreaking to see her sort of tormenting herself and then believing she deserved it. It also made me think that freaking Angel had taught her well...

deserved to understand the depth of emotion that he inspired.- I love this! I really like how you show Buffy being able to be giving, even in the midst of her pain. And it's just a lovely sentiment. 

I swear, I’m gonna dust that wanker- Please? Can I watch? I'll bring popcorn! (Okay- I know it's an empty threat, but a girl can dream.)

Maybe he thought you’d run back to him, or maybe he just wanted to make sure you wouldn’t run to me.- Ugh, to me this is Angel all over. Since he can't have Buffy, no one can. He breaks up with her but show up at her prom. He tells her to find normal than shows up and is cranky with Riley. Angel basically refuses to even admit that Buffy and Spike ever really had a relationship.  When faced with the fact that Buffy really might have moved on he tries to sabotage things. Eek- so much for being noble and self sacrificing. Now I'm back to wanting to watch Angel get his...

Spike, you saved the entire world.- I completely agree with what you have Buffy saying here. This isn't saving a few people- he saved the life of everyone on the planet. The numbers should really work out in his favor with that- no matter how busy he was as killer since he was turned. I really disliked that AtS S5 somehow swept that under the rug so we could have the whole "going to hell" scare. 

It was homecoming, completion.- I <3 this!

The smut is great and shows how much they want each other and how on the same wavelength they are, and it's wonderful that they find their voices in the middle of it. 

Ack! I love this story if you can't tell! 

 

Author's Response on May 08, 2016 12:01am

Buffy's got the need to carry the responsibility of any thirty people. :/

"...Buffy being able to be giving..." thank you! I felt like she'd probably done a whole lotta thinking during the time that Spike was "dead", and all of that thinking leads to more adult philosophies.

"...Since he can't have Buffy, no one can..." Right? This has always been my biggest problem with Angel. It's not that they had a bad relationship, or that he gave her too many complexes, it's that he was so controlling that he always had to remind her, 'here I am, waiting and judging.'

smut always makes me nervous, especially rushed, Omigod-get-inside-me-now!Smut but I felt like it fit better than Whoa!Stamina!Smut haha

Thank you so much for your review!!!!heartflowers

biggrin This is my face after reading the chapter. You pretty much got my headcanon about Spike and his soul perfectly

So there will be a claim? It's been a while since I read one. 

Anyone willing to give Angel a kick in the balls? I'm first in line!

Typical Spuffy defensiveness and mixed messages and misunderstandings. Thank goodness Dawn was there to sort them out. her explanation of the goings-on in Rome while Angel & Spike were there makes a lot of sense.

Now for the Real Reunion... and then some Angel damage.

 Oh, I hope that Buffy kicks Angel's ass and everybody sees! Spike came in and saw Buffy crying and just bam, all walls were gone. All separations disappeared. This is so good! They were finally honest. They have not had time ti talk it all out yet, but I can not wait to see that happen.

  Buffy is finally ready to be a real, in love couple and Spike chooses now to push her away. There are so many complicated emotions at play here and Spuffy is bad at communication without that help from that. Those people are such lost causes lol.

 When Dawn curled up in Spike's lap and cried, I felt like that's what I should be doing. I love their friendship and how close they are and just everything about it. Dawn did not protect herself or hide at all, and her conversation and reunion with Spike went so much differently than Buffy's did. She told him that he could call her Bit, EEEEEEEP, and she got a few things ironed out for him. Best of all, she sent him to go fix things with Buffy! How is that going to go? He just 'right' and left, haha. I want to write more, but I want to read me. So many decisions! Will Spike start the convo open or still as closed as he was in this chapter? I love hiw the new slayers are crushing on him.

Yup, Spike really is an idiot. Although I cannot blame him for what happened considering he didn't have all the evidence at the time. But really, he shouldn't have did an Angel to Buffy. I really felt sorry for her. Well, I hope they make up and not act like idiots.. Great job on this chapter, gonna go and read the next one now!

YAY they spoke in actual words AND let their bodies talk too...they finally got something right.

Oh yeah, Angel and his jealous stunt in making her think Spike was with Illryia and now she knows that git telling me that you’re better off without me, and that you were finally leading the life you’d always wanted is going to equal an arse kicking.

They still have plenty to talk about but they are on the same page now and that's all that matters.

Excellent update.

Poor Buffy AND Spike.  They are both so insecure and terrified of pain that makes death look good.  Spike goes into defense mode striking first and that is so in character!  Buffy doesn't risk letting him know how she feels so he's left thinking he was right.

These two break my heart so easily.  Talking/communication was always the one thing that messed them up. Poor Buffy with her broken heart thinking she's lost once again.

SO glad that Spike has a visit from Dawn.  First it was a relief to him to have Dawn as his Bit again.  Having DAWN set him straight is the one way Spike would believe without too many questions.  

Love how you used Andrews words and gave them a twist to look like he was trying to give a coded message to Spike.  Nice use of canon but making it work for the story.

Yes!  Spike going to Buffy is going to be brilliant.  It will be so good for them to clear the air completely.

Excellent update.

Author's Response on May 06, 2016 10:41pm

They're not so great at the talking thing. I swear they're going to work on it. 

I'm glad canon Andrew/fic Andrew worked so well, it was important to me that I show that he really thought he was helping--and not change what was on screen. 

Our spuffy are going to be much better next chapter... Except, they still don't always do all the talking they should scared

Arrrgghhh! Spike you berk! Okay- it totally rings true to his character that'd he be insecure and defensive, but holy moly the boy better have been brushing up on his groveling skills because that was a hell of a shut down he gave Buffy. 

Buffy, looking pale and skinny, and slightly nervous- obviously she's not been doing great, he's going to feel like a jerk when he buts two and two together. 

Thank god for Dawn being sensible. I really like that it's Dawn going to bat for her sister here, and showing how much she's grown. It's great to see her behaving like an adult and a caring sister. (even if she forget for a second upon seeing Spike- I love that he's worried about calling her 'bit.')

“Do. You. Still. Love. Her?” I was really cheering for Dawn at this point. You go girl!

“Oh, please don’t screw this up, guys,” she whispered. I second this whole heartedly ;-) 

I'm going to blame PMS- but for some reason the screen got all misty in the middle of this chapter...

I can't wait for the next update!

Author's Response on May 06, 2016 10:24pm

I'm so glad Spike translated well. He's gonna feel bad pretty soon, but Buffy and I are both pretty nice to him. Well, Buffy is, anyway innocent

I am glad you like Dawn, too. I feel like the upheaval that she went through--losing her mom, sister, regaining sister but not really, going through an apocalypse, and losing her home, friends, school, etc. would either make her grow the hell up and stop being a whiny teen, or make her even worse. Obviously I chose to have her grow up ;)

I'm glad you liked the update. Next up tomorrow, or as soon as the mods validate it :) Thank you for the review!!
