Awesome idea and thanks for writing as I enjoyed reading this story. Was Eve trying to drive a wedge between Buffy and Spike on the orders of the Senior Partners? I liked how you wrote the happy ending of this story.
Um, yes. That was Eve's job for the Sr. Partners - to try to tear Angel's organization apart and anyone trying to help them. I'm glad you liked the epilogue. Thanks for telling me so.
Aww I like the optional epilogue. Somehow I don't think that heaven would be complete for Buffy without Spike.
I suppose not. I'm glad you liked the little happy ending addition. :)
I like that you posted the epilogue low enough for me not to realize there was one and for the stark original ending to sink in. It was like having a treat of ice cream to take away (a little) the sadness. Thanks for both endings.
I'm glad you approve. That's exactly how they should be read - separately. ;)
Again, a great story. The way the characters are acting seems in character. Buffy is of course hurt that Spike didn't tell her he was back, but she seems to understand that he didn't belive her. In this story Angel was actually great, we can see that he cares for Spike and his other people. I liked how he got angry at Buffy, she isn't used to be talked to like that. It was an intense fighting and ending.
The epilogue was nice, but wasn't really needed, they went out fighting and we do expect them to end up together after that.
Thank you. "The epilogue was nice, but wasn't really needed, they went out fighting and we do expect them to end up together after that." That's what I was hoping readers would feel. :)
Loved it and love to think of them BOTH in heaven. They earned it.
Yeah I prefer it with the epilogue. We got enough sad endings with Joss.
Well that obviously makes it happier - but it just seems to negate the atmosphere of the story somehow. :)
