Why did Buffy have to verbally issue an invitation to come in? Vampires would have lied! Just make a gesture which works for humans.
That was a surprising wish from Spike but he seems to have figured out Buffy’s fixation on it.
I guess it’s one of the benefits of having a late in life child as the younger that I know what “Choose your own adventure” books are about. Otherwise I would have no idea.
So what the heck is a Barnably demon”? You just had to get Cordelia doing a Buffy like response re Barnaby.
And what can Angel physically do to change events with Spike?[Report This]
Yes, people can have lasting relationships with their first love and they are extremely lucky. One of my aunts married her first love only three weeks after meeting him and they were wonderful together until he died.[Report This]
Oh I totally understand Joyce’s logic for not imparting that knowledge to Buffy. My own health is iffy but I’m not burdening my sons with the knowledge. All they need to know is that I’ve taken care of end of life issues.
I like your Cordy and Angel together - wonderful blend of Angel's character in the series and this Angel in Love. Your Cordelia is outstanding as well.
Thank you so much, nmcil! I had such a fun time writing Cordy and Angel together! They're such a better fit for each other than Buffy and Angel.
Fantastic story. I loved how they found each other early on and fought to stay together. Thank you for writing this, you are amazing.
Awww...thank you so much, EllenofJordan! I''m so happy that you enjoyed the story!
This was such a beautiful story, Sandy. I really loved that it was Angel who willingly propelled Buffy and Spike together, like it was always meant to be. The interludes with Cordy were wonderful. I really liked how you wove canon in regarding Joyce, and that there was no reveal either way if her end was predestined or if she was able to change it, just leaving us the hope that she could without the sadness of potential failure. I just love that in the end, Spuffy had a happy life together. So glad I finally got to read this!
Oh, Megan, receiving your comment in my inbox made my day! *big hugs* Thank you so much for taking the time to read and share your thoughts. It was totally meant for them to be together. I had SO much fun writing Cordy. Haha. There weren't supposed to be so many interludes, and then, Cordy was just like, um, I'm right here! lol Angel would have probably preferred to be in the shadows, but really, she just reminded me why I love Cangel, too. And thank you about Joyce! Yeah, I wanted to leave it vague about Joyce...there was pressure to make a decision about that, but you writing what you did makes me glad that I kept it that way. Spuffy had a wonderful life together...yay! And I'm so glad you had time to read it, too! Thank you again!
PS This was my first long fic after coming back to fandom, and it was so fun to write...
Loved the ending. Quick question though, did Spike really die because Buffy did? Because that is just so sucky... I mean, i always expect him to go in blaze and glory.
Anyway, loved the fic. i remembered some parts when i first read it, some parts not so much. But overall, I enjoyed it and thank you for sharing this wonderful story.
They did take him...the PTB. I think they wanted Spike and Buffy to be together, and they had a long long life together with lots of glory (no pun intended)! Spike is love's bitch and would have it no other way...this way, he doesn't have to wait to be with Buffy again.
And thank you so so much again for sharing all your wonderful comments and thoughts! I'm so thrilled that you enjoyed the fic that matches your challenge (except for that one part)! It means a lot that you took the time to read and comment on every single chapter! Happy birthday and happy holidays!
