This fic is so sweet! I do find it funny how quickly both Spike and Buffy convince themselves that they must be dead, because seeing each other and having this happiness must be heaven - even though Buffy knows what actual heaven is like, which gives it all the more weight that she thinks finding Spike is comparable. And how thinking they're dead lets them put aside any of their insecurities and just love each other. And I love Dawn being simultaneously happy for them and already tired of them 'being gross'. Really lovely! <3[Report This]
I'd forgotten this sugary confection of loveliness, read before I started commenting and before life got too busy to read at all lol. But I'm ECing and needed to get my head back in the Spuffy game. And frankly fluffy Spuffy is right up there with smutty Spuffy as far as I'm concerned. d84;
Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed!
Oh my gosh those two are SO BLOND. Hahaha Buffy comes home to Spike in bed "Whoopsie! Must be dead!" This is so great. I needed the laugh.
I'm glad you enjoyed! Poor dears, thinking they couldn't both be alive and happy!
I am deep in the archives, but this was so lovely. I loved Dawn's part so much--always down to earth.
Yay! (Reviews are always welcome!) I'm so glad you enjoyed :-D Dawn was fun to write as a POV character, and *someone* had to be around to knock some sense into Spuffy.
This is excellent but everything after spike getting into the apartment my brain was like "no one invited him in?! How did he do that!"
Apart from that awsome
Thanks for reading!
A vampire only needs to be invited in once! :-) This goes off canon during TGIQ, post Andrew inviting both Spike and Angel into Buffy's apartment. They're leaving the apartment itself in the beginning, Angel continues on and Spike doubles back.
Ahhh I guess that didnt click when I read this! Thanks!
One of the best post-series reunion fics! I love the image of Spike in Buffy's room, smelling her and breaking his heart on purpose.
Poor dorks- they both couldn't imagine being happy and alive. Thank goodness for Dawn!
Thank you for the read and review!
Life is Beautiful is one of my all time favorite movies...it made me laugh and cry... and this fic was sweet and sorta sad at first and then really funny with Dawn... loved it!! d84;a039; Haha, when she flipped off the phone...I've done that a time or two! And yay for Spuffy loving and how they both assume they're dead and why! Lol and you even got your medical knowledge in there, too. This one may be a reread when I need a feel good fic...
The poor dolts, both of them! (And I felt a bid sad that both Buffy and Spike would assume that they had to be dead in order to be happy )
Dawn flipping the phone off is also an inside joke because before this story I'd never had Dawn "on camera" - if she appeared in a story Buffy was always talking to her on the phone. So yay- Dawn actually being a character! (Gort's really much better at writing her than I am- maybe because she is/has a sister?)
I just read through this as one of the suggestions from the Shoutbox today, and it hit the spot. I am going to save this for a rainy day when things feel a little hopeless as a reminder that sometimes life is funny, and things work out in ways we never expect.
Oh how I wish this is actually how that episode went. And bless you for making Dawn as snarky and sharp as I imagine she would become with time. Wonderful, as always.
I'm glad you enjoyed!
I wish this episode went almost anyway besides how it did! It's such a big middle finger to anyone that like wither Spuffy or Bangel :-( I like fixing it/reading about it being fixed in as many ways as possible.
Dawn was so much fun to write here and I'm glad you enjoyed her as she took charge and told Angel and her dumb sister and her sister's boyfriend how it's going to be!
So cute - both of them thinking they had died and were in heaven! Dawn has blackmail material for the next ever!
They're both such dorks. Dawn is going to be able to get anything she wants for forever, lol!
I just loved this story so much! Dawn's summary of the situation was perfect!!
“Oh. My. God. Both of you thought you’d died and heaven was boinking each other senseless while screaming over and over again how much you love each other?"
Delightful fluff. Thanks so much for sharing, Sunalso!
Thank you! I think this was the first time I had Dawn "on camera" and not on the other end of a phone line, though she does talk on the phone so I didn't quite escape it.
Buffy and Spike can be such dorks, but we love them anyway!
I came looking for the Christmas fluff you mentioned in Shout box and at first thought this was it till I got done (and reviewed) and realized this was posted in November and wasn't Christmas fluff lol. Super cute story <3 this totally should be how the comics/tv show actually went lol.
Nearly ANYTHING would have been better than how TGIQ went. *grumble* I'm so glad you enjoyed:-) The other story is still being beta'd (we ran out of time before I went to work) and will be posted sometime -much- later today when I again have brain cells!
I love you. I love you so much. Now, why didn't they let you write the second to last episode of Angel, and let it end this way?
Did I say how much I love you?
I'm glad you enjoyed! I've never forgiven AtS for being so insulting to both Bangel and Spuffy shippers in that episode, or for the fact it offered no closure whatsoever and was just farce. Grr. Arg.
So I like to fix it. In my own little way, anyway ;-)
Thank you for the read and review!
