Loved this chapter and just wanted to let you know that near the bottom of the chapter you accidentally wrote Willow instead of Wendy. d84;a039;
Thanks for the head's up! I'll have to go see about editing that!
This is one complex and multi-layered story..you built a while world new...
Writing the supernatural aspects was very challenging for me, I had to have charts and lists and time tables to work it all out. Even though the story is ultimately one of the heart, the supernatural framework had to be strong enough to hold it all up. I was blessed with great original characters to work with, but this entire part coming up really made me dig deep to get it to all come together. I'll be curious to hear what you think of all that comes next!
Thanks for taking the time to read and review!
Rough. Buffy is too young, even as the Slayer, to really handle what's happening. That cold latte really spazes me out, and makes me think of the Delorian after it time travels.
God- Spike makes everything so confusing. He's playing so many sides does he even know what his real end game is? Ugh.
You are right, things are VERY chaotic, both as far as the mission and personally for Buffy and company. If Spike had told her he wanted to protect her from anyone BUT the Council, maybe she would have trusted him but that surely did come out of left field. Yeah, that latte....I don't know why the TV Council felt they needed a ritual like the Cruciamentum, isn't just being the Slayer challenging enough?!!!
Thanks for reading and reviewing!
Ok, splitting Buffy in three sounds like an ambitious plan and what was that with them killing her? I am curious about how they will do it.
The images you use to describe the supernatural are great like the comparison with a corridor in a cartoon.
Wendy’s the sort of friend who doesn’t jump to conclusions Wendy really is a great friend and tries to understand and help Buffy.
Everyone should have at least one Wendy in their lives, and if she can do sorcery...double win! It's definitely an ambitious plan, we find out if/how they do it...in the next update! I'm glad the comparison made sense, who knows, maybe one day you'll want to do some dimension hopping, and now you will know how it works! That is when a friend like Wendy would come in handy! Thanks for reading and reviewing!
Well, *I* have to jump in here to say that if "Summer"/Buffy was a little girl growing up concurrent with a little blonde girl on popular family TV show that had a little girl named "Buffy" (& a twin boy named Jody, & an older sister named Cissy), then, like me, Summer/Buffy would be approaching her 6th decade or thereabouts (I'm 56, and was young when Family Affair was on TV, ugly doll Mrs Beasley & all). So I'm thinking things must'be gone well... a regular ... ahem... workout with Ole Spike must keep her ticker going or something...
Ah...Ponce de Leon wandered the Florida swamps searching for the fountain of youth...Buffy found her's in Spike! He simply spurts vitality! Thanks for reading and reviewing.
It was an interesting plan Spike had, from the ending it seems like the plan was different than I thought from the earlier part of the chapter, but it does explain about the crucifix. It still is such a complicated situation for Buffy, who can she trust and what is the right thing to do? We know that there actually are worse things than dying. There's also Buffy's duty as the Slayer, something she is feeling very strongly for.
We can also see the complication of the relationship she has with Spike, it's not easy.
So true, now there are three plans on the table, Ovid's, The Council's and Spike's. Ovid's will kill Buffy and the Slayer, the Council's will kill Buffy, but save the Slayer, Spike's will split Buffy into three and hopefully bring all of them together again...which plan do you think she should go with? We find out soon enough. The big confrontation is in the next update!
