So sweet! I really enjoyed this and I'm so glad I started reading even though I saw it was marked incomplete. It felt like a good place to leave them so I'm not closing it and feeling unsatisfied. I feel very very satisfied. Thank you for sharing![Report This]
Oh Spike's anguished babbling breaks my heart, the poor baby. And Buffy having to deal with Finn and Walsh watching her constantly while she tries to break free </3 What an awful situation all round.[Report This]
So much sex!!!!
Fun, sweet story. I'm not usually a huge turned Buffy fan or a claim fan, but I enjoyed this one. Very well done, interesting concept. Loved Bitch. Too funny that they could stop having raunchy sex in front of everyone, for some reason I felt the most sorry for Oz having to go get them. Probably cause he was the only one canon who never judged Buffys love life, the others deserved what they got.[Report This]
This is amazing!! I never thought I would like vamp Buffy, but I'm hooked. This was beautifully done, I love it!
I'm so glad you enjoyed! This was a really fun fic to write! I still think that eventually I'll get back to it and finish up those last couple of chapters, but at least I left them in a good place! <3
Love the idea that the demons that join with a human host are originally binary. Makes the notion of a mate so much deeper.
Would love to read about how Buffy’s Slayer-ness comes into play. Is it the same demonic energy passed down? Is it separate from the demon that makes her a vampire? In canon, it never seems like a full demon, but how will it mesh with all these parts she and Spike/William now share?
My idea, which I didn't have a chance to include, was that the little bit of demonic energy that makes her a Slayer is sort of adopted by her vampiric demon, and intertwines with it, so it can show up in odd ways, but mostly as a sense that she still needs to still hunt out and slay demons. And she drags Spike along with her. So the epilogue was going to be from Giles perspective, years in the future, when he's helping a new Slayer and Watcher train, and the new Slayer was going to get over her head and Buffy would show up with her mate, save the girl and take the demons out, wave at Giles, mack on Spike a little, and they'd disappear into the night.
Thank you for reading and commenting on the craziness!
Aww these two are still only thinking of shagging each other senseless but it's still so sweet between them.
I'm a bit sad I'm up to date now :( but I'm looking forward to reading what you have in store for us next xx
Ugh, this chapter was so nerve-wracking to write with the BDSM, because they dynamic is complicated and I think most everyone is just like YIKES, SEX. Plus the claim as an extra layer.
(thank goodness for Gort going through when she did the beta and pointing out strong writing parts and what worked, because this was harrowing to publish)
And at the end they are very much is better place than the last several chapters!
And now I need time to write!
Buffy, you’re naked!” she squeaked, glancing down where Spike’s duster had gaped open.
B grinned. “Spike tore all my clothes off!” LMAO! Loved this part. Heck, I loved it all, Spuffy shagging on front of anyone who cared to look, Angel averting his eyes and Faith loving it.
Brill chapter x
Buffy is so over things like not getting exactly what she needs with her mate (poor Willow!) Angel's done with the whole thing...but Faith doesn't have any problems being a perv, lol.
Oh poor Buffy, going crazy alone there. I suppose knocking Spike out that time was OK but if they want to keep him unconscious it might be a little kinder to use magic or a tranquiliser.
Hooray for Giles not taking any of Angels crap, he's having far too much to do with this than he should and needed taking down a peg or two.
Another fab chapter. I hope Buffy isn't hurt by anyone at the initiative, Spike may not be able to keep his promise not to kill anyone otherwise. Xx
I couldn't just NOT have Spike tied up in the bathtub at some point!
Ugh, Angel. Can't he just fall down a well?
Oh no! And we're back to reality! Bloody initiative, how dare they take Buffy! Grr!
Thank god Faith managed to knock Spike out as he was in no state to chase after the soldiers.
God help them when Spikes healed!
Great, action packed chapter x
Poor Spike is in no way able to go after Buffy, he's lucky she's got such good friends that are able and willing to help out when both of them are a mess!
What a wonderful chapter!
'Bitch was…she wasn’t alone. B’s mouth fell open as she could sense her demon and Spike’s swirling about each other.
Happy, so happy.
Not alone. Never alone again.'
My god, woman, you had me in tears! And what lovely imagery.
A feeling of peace seems to have settled over them both now and hopefully Joyce won't need to get the garden hose on them next.
I just want to smoosh them together for always :( Darn Joss.
Thank you for the lovely review!
Love the peek at vampire psychology. She did no wrong but there was a wrong to be reckoned and Spike knew that Bitch was going to be unhappy until it was taken care of.
Bit of BDSM at work but done lovingly and with the aim being the pleasure and dealing with the vampire needs not to actually harm (as I imagine some vampires like Angelus or Dru might have done).
Hot and love that he reminded her they had a safe word to put in play if needed too.
Bit of a spanking and anal and Bitch is soothed LOL.
I love how tenderly they snuggled in the sarcophagus after they dealt with all the wild emotions from their separation and reunion. They really did need privacy for working this all out because I don't think lots of people would have understood what was going on.
Excellent and hot update.
Buffy tends to blame herself for things that weren't her fault...a little controlled punishment lets her stop obsessing...and Spike's been completely out of control for a day: of himself and of what's happening, and even the attack to rescue his mate. He needed a chance to regain the feeling of being in control of at least something. (Thankfully their quirks align here!)
Here the D/s is really about them taking care of and enjoying each other.
(And being both demons...a little pain isn't at all unwelcome, lol)
And they can finally rest, phew!
Thanks for the read and review!
"Seems the type to jump on a fence post if there’s no willing fellow around. And I doubt you’re going to risk a moment of perfect happiness with her.” OMG, hilarious!
Why wouldn't Angel just go, ffs! I mean who just stands there and has a conversation while someones getting their back door smashed in? Lol!
I'm looking forward to the ritual, another fab chapter xx
a) vampires are weird,
b) Angel is a total perv
Being a vampire, it seems very fitting that Spike would want to "mark" her. Well a lot of human men like that too, it's no coincidence that facials are popular in porno.
Some really hot dominance play. This is some hard sex, but in the talking and the little gestures there is also sweet tenderness. This is such a good mix.
I'm surprised it wasn't on my kink!bingo card, lol.
Both Buffy and Spike really needed some reconnecting time!
I loved the back story on how mates met and Buffy pouting again over Spike not wanting to find her. Joyce rocked with the water, pouring it over them like they were two dogs in heat, lol!
Another excellent chapter x
Bitch is seething mad, lol, poor Spike! And Joyce is just like STOP. Ha! Thanks for the reread Carrie-Ann!
Buffys jealousy is so funny, along with all the thoughts she's been having about Faith and Dru, she really doesn't get how totally in love Spike is with her. The smut was hot, but there's always something sweet between them which makes this story so much more romantic than any other PWP. I just feel like I want them to be happy little vampers forever.
Great chapter, I wonder what the scoobs have in store for them in the next one xx
Poor Buffy always has a hard time imagining herself to be enough for anybody, friend or lover :( I totally want them to be happy little vamps together forever as well :-D
I'm sure I reviewed this chapter the last time I read it, but re-read as a refresher. This was lovely and Joyce and Buffys conversation had me almost in tears.
I'm looking forwards to catching up now x
In S3 Buffy and Joyce weren't connecting well for most of it, but I wanted to at least give them a little time to figure a few things out here, Joyce's life has to be a rollercoaster at the moment.
"Spike reveled in how wanted he felt." How lovely
I like that he made sure she got that he doesn't really blame her.
Oh, that's good.
"until the hills are all nothing but sand" I love the sound of this
Yay, he got her to admit/accept a thing she enjoys. <3
“As I’ve told you, what we do together is sacred. You’re supposed to like it. I’d be worried if you didn’t.” Wholesome :)
Here's what the final line reminded me of:
*SNERK* That graphic completely fits ;-)
Poor Buffy and Spike really needed to get properly fit back together before they could deal with everything else going on!
Wow - that was intense. The claim really has enhanced everything to the point that they both are instinctively acting based of the needs of the other. After 27 hours of a torture even greater than what Buffy endured, Spike had to find someway to regain some semblance of control, just as Buffy desperately needed to let go of her desperation and fear and allow herself to reaffirm her trust in her mate. Neither Spike nor Buffy could have prevented her capture, but at this point they both need to believe that the power to refuse to be separated is theirs.
If there are any of the initiative operatives left around, they might be smart to pack their bags and head to parts unknown. Sooner or later, Spike and Buffy are going to have to come up for air, and this time around I imagine the claim is going to prove more of a help than a hinderance as the two of them together move to get to the bottom of things!
OH THANK GOD SOMEONE GOT IT
Buffy and Spike needed to fall into that part of their relationship dynamic to deal with the terror of having been separated.
(And all of the Initiative members better hope they're long gone asap...)
Thank you so, so much for the read and review!
