Nice work with Spike's stream-of-consciousness - that's some pretty powerful writing, taking him through all those emotions, ending with not quite complete despair hand-in-hand with hope and the decision to go to her on his own if she wouldn't come to him. That's very like him. And kind of crushing when I think about what happens next....

This story is so sad, I want to cry thinking of Spike waiting there for Buffy  😭

Author's Response on October 28, 2016 05:23pm

S6 really isn't a good year for Spike, is it? :-( But I hope you enjoyed it anyways, thanks for reading and reviewing!

I thought it would be nice to read this on your birthday, and it was. Beautiful writing, and reads like the missing piece before Buffy actually breaks up with him, it really prepares one for that look in Spike's eyes: he was dreading it but also waiting for it.

Good!

Author's Response on September 25, 2016 09:32am

Thank you :-) I wasn't thinking of the break-up scene when writing this (more of his surprise when she does show up in As You Were), but what you're saying makes sense - he really seemed to expect the break-up, which makes it even more heartbreaking to watch. Thanks for the new perspective, and of course for reading and reviewing!

This was a sad fic, and totally felt sorry for Spike. You made my heart bleed for him! So thanks!weep

On another note, this was still a nice one! Thanks for sharing and I enjoyed every heartbreaking moment of it!

Author's Response on September 26, 2016 10:53am

I'm sorry for your heart bleeding :-( Season 6 really wasn't such a great time for Spike, but at least he gets to be happy in the comics!

Thanks for reading and reviewing :-)

Great job of following his decent into anger, despair, drunkeness as the night wore on, and then....finding that spark of hope and optimism again, in spite of everything. Felt very very authentic.

Thank you, I'm glad you liked it :-)

 You have done a wonderful job of showing Spike's pain and heart-break. It was hard to read and hard to watch on the series as well.

I want to put my arms around him and tell him there IS someone for him that will love him back; too bad he wouldn't have listened though.

Great little fic; can't wait see what you have for us next.

Author's Response on September 21, 2016 03:28am

Poor Spike :-( You know, after all these heartbroken reviews I feel really bad for making him suffer like that (but I stayed on canon, the writers on the show did it!). I promise I'll have Buffy be nicer to him in my next story! I've already started writing, but I have so much coming up at work and uni that it might take some time :-)

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Nicely good. A good look at Spike's mindset while he and Buffy were having their thing.  Good Spike voice.

This do fit season 6. We can see that at this point Spike's life is all about Buffy, all he lives for is those stolen moments they have. He reminds me of some poor "other woman" that just have the stolen moments but cling to the hope that "he will leave his wife for me". I just got that thought in my mind while reading this. 

Author's Response on September 21, 2016 03:22am

You're right, he is in a very similiar situation! But I think that in a way, he is even worse off, because he has no one else but Buffy :-(

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

 Brilliant! But I can't wait for to be nicer! So hurry!

Author's Response on September 20, 2016 02:52pm

Haha, I guess I was rather mean to him ;-) I'm doing my best, but there's just a lot of work lining up in my future - I've already tot started on the next story, though!

Thanks for reading and reviewing :)

Even though I read this closely yesterday it still breaks my heart rereading it this morning. Poor Spike, his heart just won't let him lose hope in her.

Author's Response on September 20, 2016 11:51am

It was painful to write, too :-( Thankfully, you updated ToD yesterday, that was like balm for the wounds!

Thanks for beta-ing, reading and reviewing! :-)

Aww, thank you! I'm pretty covered at work and uni right now, but I've already got started on the next story :-)

Love Waiting for Godot.  We put on the play (taped it) for a project in HS, so it has a special place in my heart.  Poor Spike!

 

Thanks for sharing!

Author's Response on September 20, 2016 09:08am

It's a great play, isn't it? My teacher described it as "wonderfully absurd" back then wink

Thanks for reading and reviewing, I'm glad you enjoyed it!

I really loved this look at Spike as he waits in vain for Buffy.  Poor guy was always waiting...waiting for her to show, waiting for her to care.  This really feels authentic in every way.  He is love's bitch.  He is obsessed with her (not the way they tried to claim was his root feeling but in the way that anyone in the throes of love is...where they are all you think about, all that matters). He is eternally optimistic even in the face of what should lead to despair.  Really wonderfully done!

I'm looking forward to more from you.  Very talented and a really good handle on Spike's character and voice.

You're so sweet heart 

I think the reason I connected so much with the show and Spike is because I was just like him as a teenager, and I certainly hope I wasn't obsessed with those stupid guys back then! I guess that everyone who is unhappily in love obsesses a little.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!
