This is just great - I love how you are pulling in all kinds of esoteric information, mashing up real science with magic; military lingo with D&D lingo. Actually, the real science sometimes seems too bizarre to be real, lol. You must have a physics background or know someone who does. And the shrinking Magic Bus reminds me of that wild bus ride in Harry Potter ("Nearly there, nearly there").
I'm just a nerd 😂😂 thank you for the lovely review
“Scared. You better not give me a butt baby. I'll kill you.”
“Your lack of knowledge about the human body is strangely endearing, luv,”
I was screaming with laughter at this, heeheehee.
And Liam/Angelus gets his just desserts. For some reason, as he broke into Faith's room, I imagined him like
Jack Nicholson in The Shining: "Heeeeere's Johnny" scene.[Report This]
Oh, poor Fred. I always want to save Fred. And now Liam is Illyria? But Faith is already pregnant, by a human Liam. So Glory is foiled again?
A small, peripheral inaccuracy: "...America’s only particle physics and accelerator lab." - oops, not true. In addition to SLAC (probably the one you mean?), there are accelerators/synchrotrons/cyclotrons and particle physics labs at other sites in the US: Brookhaven NL, Oak Ridge NL, Thomas Jefferson NL, Los Alamos NL. Although Fermilab shut down its Tevatron accelerator in 2011, there are a couple of synchrotrons still actively used. (Husband was a particle physicist, have a few friends who work at SLAC.)
Ooh thank you!
Loving all the accurate breastfeeding and medical details you've included. And loving how doting Spike is. Of course, he would be. The vampire who cared for Drusilla for 100 years would be no less solicitous of the mother of his child.[Report This]
Wow! Great plotty tension & repurposing of canon. Willow is so unrepentantly evil in this story. The scary part is that she doesn't realize that she's evil; she thinks she's doing the right thing and saving her friends. So many real world parallels to this.[Report This]
Congratulations on a wonderful story - it's a great combination of Buffy's return to life and these mystical children - enjoyed it very much. Like how you used all of the characters - would be nice to have a Christmas story to go with this work.[Report This]
