Magic has consequences in Season 6 --> Resurrection leads to magic addicted Willow and Season 7--> First Evil leads to activation of slayers, death of Spike/Anya/potential  --> leads to Season 8 Twilight, world against slayers, rouge slayers, supernatural in public, death of slayers/soldiers/Giles --> leads to Season 9 end of magic, Dawn ceasing from existing, zompires, more death, Severin --> leads to  Season 10 vampires with special power/daylight walkers, vampyre book rewrite, dhoffyrn as big bad to steal vampyre book to become actual god, dawn becomes unstable left the main dimension to others --> leads to Season 11 government internment camp of supernatural, Crazy Wise, anti-slayers (again).

 

Season 12 --> yuk. Stupid bad guys as slayer wannabes. However, in the end Buffy still very like Spike to stay with her and Spike said he wouldn't be going anywhere even after their breakup (again). She said, they probably would be romancing again in the future or as long as they are staying together. I wish they never write that stupid season.

 

This Giles understand is a lot better than scary Giles of season 7 when he realized Buffy is getting really closed to Spike. Physical closeness was being laughed at by Giles, but emotional closeness scared Giles. I am glad in this fic he didn't do anything to Spike.

Author's Response on April 20, 2021 09:37pm

He had Willow to worry about, and understood Spike's concerns.  I generally like for Giles not to be as rigid as he was in season 7

True true. I think in season 10 onward, it is funny that he is a little boy. lol. He couldn't even get a happy with Olivia.

This was so much better with Giles there from the getgo! It was so nice to see his compassion contrasted with Willow’s arrogance. It was like resurrecting Buffy was just her challenging herself and expecting all the praise than genuine love for Buffy and relief for having ‘saved’ her. 

Author's Response on March 12, 2021 10:06am

Thanks. It was a brilliant prompt/what if to have Giles present when she first comes back. Of course he would be more aware of what happened and how she might feel about it.

Thank you for setting things straight!

I know I read this before but, like all your stories, it was a pleasure to re-read any number of times.

This was so bittersweet. It felt so realistic. Yes, Spike would do what he felt was the best for her even at the cost of his own heart.

Excellent.

Faire revenir riley a été une bonne idée cela reste un personnage de btvs mais le scénario et surtout avec une femme a été le clou de buffy ici les oeufs ne sont pas canon pour moi .

Qu'il viennent seul est une  bonne chose dans mon livre car cela montre qu'il tient encore à buffy mais buffy ne sait rien de ses activités à sunnydalle avant de partir car en faisant ce qu'il a fait à mis en danger sa famille.

Demandait à willow est intéressant mais je pense que buffy ne lui faisait plus confiance à un certain point.

Story #1 Thank you for writing a good Giles.  So happy he was there when Buffy was resurrected.  Even better when he brought Spike back in so he could finish cleaning and bandaging Buffy's hands.  Happy he was going to contact a coven in regards to Willow's misuse of magic.

Story #2 Of course Xander is pissed at the fact she told Spije but not at the fact they ripped her out of heaven.

Story #3 Glad Buffy stuck it to Riley and embraced Spike.

Story #4 That was just mean.  Poor Spike and Dawn.

Those really cover the gambit from happy cathartic fluff to grim, grieving darkness. 

Great arrogence conveyed with both Willows anf with Riley.  

If only Giles had been more effective at the start like you created, then I bet Buffy would not have had such a hard time of it.

Author's Response on September 04, 2016 08:31am

Thank you.  In poor Giles's defense, in canon he wasn't there when they resurrected Buffy.  But yes, I think he would have been able to handle it a little better.
