Ah poor partially deluded Spike. Yes she kissed him but she will still be foiling herself, saying it’s because of the singing spell. Even if we know different. If only it went different from here - which is why I like fics where it does lol.
This was a very believable take on Spikes POV after the kiss and I really enjoyed it.
Thank you for a lovely review. Poor Spike - just as good at self-delusion as his Slayer.
So much hope! What a shame we know what happens next! Of course, a writer could change that if they felt so inclined! Just a suggestion!
Thank you. Our poor boy wants love as well as sex. S6 Buffy couldn't offer that to anyone.
Poor guy all hopeful only to have this be the beginning of such pain and trouble!
On a side note...I always hated that nothing was ever said or made of about the people who burned to death during that bit of demonic magic that Xander caused. No consequences for lives lost! Not even a real, "I'm sorry." Xander got away with whining about just wanting to know if he and Anya were going to be happy! People died.
I know. It was the feeblest part of the entire episode, and Xander should at least have shown some understanding of what he did. He does tend to get a free pass, though, from <i>The Pack</i> onwards.
