I think the story is really well written I couldn't stop reading! There is definitely a need for a sequel because there are outstanding questions, how will the relationship between Buffy and Spike go? What are the Vampire rituals that Spike appealed to not to argue with Angel? I hope with all my heart to read more

Author's Response on October 09, 2021 05:15pm

Thank you so much. It was a fun story to write, TBH, and I'm always happy to learn readers enjoyed it.  Can't write about the vampire stuff until I make up what it is. LOL

Ha ha - everybody wants to know what Spike said to Angel. I'll never tell!!!  This was a fun fic to write, so I'm pleased when people like it. :)flowers

This chapter was great, but for the last half I couldn't stop thinking "spike is supposed to be mad at her because she said she was bored, isn't he going to tell her something?" 🤣🤣 Guess Spike is more forgiving than me. 

Interesting turn of events taking the chip out...

Author's Response on April 28, 2021 02:57pm

Spike's pretty forgiving when it comes to Buffy... and he knows she didn't really mean that the way it came out...

I think the chip wasn’t finished setting in to his brain yet. It probably took a few days for all the connections to go live.” that's a very good explanation to why the chip didn't affect him so much in the beginning. On the show, when he escapes the initiative, he punches some humans and the chip doesn't go off. 

I like the attraction that they're feeling and trying to avoid. Let's see how that works out 🤣 at least Giles know now, who knows what Willow could be up to all by herself...

A throughly Scoobie ending with Xander being the poophead who rushes home to call Angel and of course, stirs up trouble.  Out of everyone in the Buffy verse, I have to say, I dislike Angel the most, second place is a Xander-Riley-Willow tie, depending upon the fiction in question.  They even come in ahead of The First/Calib/Glory/the Major, etc.  Because those were wholly villains who did not claim a friendship, relationship, or loyalty to Buffy. 

I like that you "didn't" reveal the conversation and ritual that Spike invoked.  I suspect is to be some form of sire-child ritual regarding a chosen mate or addition to the family and the future thing might be something along the lines of unquestioned obedience. 

Lovely fiction and I like that the Initiative was the villain but the main emphasis was Spuffy's relationship.  Nicely done!

I knew it.  I knew that crazy ho-bag fruitloop of an instructor would be passing information along.  Bet she is the one who connected Giles to Buffy.  No good deed goes unpunished.  And of course, Riley follows Giles to Buffy.  WTF is wrong with Giles.  He could have assigned that task to Xander or Clem. Instead, he led them straight to her.  And in the dark or half-light, with or without a chip, partners or thrown together as enemies, Spike will be anything and do anything to get to stay in Buffy's life.  :pout: I want one!

Wow, Spike respects Giles.  But then he would, for Giles standing up to Angelus shows that Giles has strength and courage.  Two qualities Spike admires.  Hum, you know, I think the spell's effects may be gone, but the natural urges have flared.  I am worried about Giles and the Initiative.  If they are watching the Watcher, then they will follow him to Restfield. And Riley, who pulled a taser on Buffy warning her...what's up with that.  Talk about mixed signals. He's got 'em.

Author's Response on September 21, 2019 08:30pm

Yeah, Riley turns out to be kind of a jerk in this one. :)

Seems Buffy may be a wee-bit jealous of her neighbors.  Spike helping said neighbors and not eating them did seem to sit up a huge warning signal.  Buffy trusting Riley, and his subsequent betrayal after telling her he had changed his mind broads ill for all concerned.  But Spike being the one who warns Giles about the changes going on in Buffy's relationship with him signals Buffy's back in denial and is leaving huge chunks of information out of her reports to her Watcher.  All adds up to not of the good.

That is one kookie Professor.  Even if you do not belief in vampires and demons, which this one obviously does, you have to admit that all the negative press should show up as a huge blip on an investigator's radar. 

Given that Riley and Mags are so interested or becoming interested in Buffy and that the Professor is at the same college, that could spells loads of trouble.  But not as much as Buffy's residual feelings for Spike that she is continuing to blame on the will-be-done spell.

This story is so good! One thing though: didn't willow originally find out about Prof Walsh through the university's encrypted files? Yet here Buffy says that she thinks the university has no idea.

Author's Response on August 31, 2016 09:17pm

Wow - I don't remember at all. I guess we can assume that the files Willow looked into were so encrypted that only the higher ups at the university would know about it? O that Buffy is just assuming they don't know?  I'd have to reread my story to see what I wrote, but I guess we can just assume AU story = non-canon events?  Thanks for reading and telling me you liked it. :)

For a moment, I had hoped that Xander was going to tell Joyce instead of Angel.  Think that might have been more fun.  Glad there wasn't a big melt down with Peaches but it makes me wonder what Spike promised.

Hmm, Willow with the naked Spike was REALLY cute.

Thank you so much for sharing this.  I totally enjoyed it.

I really liked the arena kinda testing.  Cool to see Buffy take out the vamp and leave the harmless demons alone. 

The snuggles and smut at the end made me happy.  I like to see them have quiet moments of connection that are not all about sex.  That they got to the sex afterwards just makes it better.

The dialogue about Mr. Gordo and pigs was cute.  I always like that comparison.

hmm, wondering if the spell actually went away before they actually did it the first time and it was all just them. 

Liked the realization that Spike actually kinda likes Giles.  That is a fresh look for the normally antagonistic relationship they share in most fics.

The initiative is still pretty high on the creepy factor.  Hope the Council is willing to do something and that Maggie gets what is coming to her.

You have very effectively made Willow and the Initiative scary at this point.  Willow with her wanting to fix things even though Buffy and Spike don't want her "fixing" with spells and Maggie with her obsession are both intimidating.

Nice save of the idiot prof.  wonder if the saving of those two specific soldiers will make a difference in the future?

hmm, prof inkwell seems like a bit of an idiot *shakes head*. 

Interesting that Maggie already knows Buffy is the Slayer.  if it was the other prof who revealed it, dumb move on her part. 

I enjoyed the byplay in the flat and Giles observing inconsistencies in Spike's words and actions.  Gives a nod to the ex-Watcher's intelligence.

We could see a little bit of the soul issue turn up in Buffy's thoughts. It do make sense, it takes a long time for old way of thinking to die. Buffy is ready for a real relationship with him but is worried about the others reactions, which is a typical way for Buffy to behave. In the end everyone get to know it. Xander is reacting with anger, him calling Angel would have been a bad thing. He did manage to say Buffy's name to Angel before Willow stopped him. 

I can't blame Angel for calling Joyce and then turning up, of course this got him worried. Him calling Buffy "his leavings" were not nice though. I did like that Spike managed to calm him down by unknown means. It was also nice to see how curious this made Buffy. 

This was another great story, with a hopeful and good ending, just as I want itsmile

Buffy and Spike had a very sensual moment at the crypt, Spike really knows how to take his time. Also great to see Buffy accept the demonic side of him. Of course a good time must be followed by a bad one and being captured by the Initiative is a very bad thing. Luckely enought there wasn't any real torture and with the chip removed things will get better. It's good to see a moment when the Council is actually useful. Buffy has learned enough to be willing to give Spike a chance, Giles reacted badly at first but it seems like he can be supportive.

applause Good story. 

I had the urge to hit Angel when he referred to Buffy as "leavings", that's just no way to talk about people. It is good that Buffy didn't accept that. It is a pity we don't get to know the vampire secret.

Poor Spike being outed as a poet.

I can't figure out how you're going to resolve this, which is great.  I still love the allusions to the depth of Spike's emotions.   He hasn't made any long impassioned declarations but it still comes through in lines like, 'Don't make me leave, love.'

*sobs over the romance* heartheartsweep

 

I really thought that Angel was gonna throw a major b*tch fit over Buffy being with Spike. scared

But really, Angel? 'Leavings'? How can you even claim to love her if you describe her as your 'leavings'? That's right there next to 'unwanted' and 'garbage'. rant You should be greatful that Buffy didn't give you a power kick to the nuts. thwap

LOL I guess Angel forgot who else was listening when he started trying to make Spike feel bad. Good for Spike and Buffy, bad for Angel. :)
