I love the story for the most part. The Angel and Cordelia interludes could have been left out. I don’t particularly care for either of them.

Love that all the moving around details were out in the open and everyone ended up happy! Love fluffy happy endings!!

I’m liking the solution for Maggie. Nothing to get the slayer’s dander up with worries.

Hell yeah, I’m linking their solutions to the so called “loose ends” taking them off the hands of our heroes!

Love the hashing out and coming to terms discussions.

It’s good that Spike confessed mostly everything to Buffy and better that she’s OK with it.

Got to agree with Willow about white walls. Just too antiseptic, institutional and a bitch to keep clean.

Joyce commented on Chapter Eighteen, An Unexpected Turn of Events, Part Two on December 22, 2019 12:07pm

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.

Joyce commented on Interlude, Trusting the Process on December 22, 2019 12:06pm

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?

Joyce commented on Chapter Seventeen, The Red Inside on December 22, 2019 12:05pm

Interesting that Spike got that confession about what Willow feels as a vengeance demon. Sounds pretty usefull to the Scoobies considering the current predicament. They qualify as victims.

What gives them the right to kick in a door of an upstanding private citizen without a warrant?!

Joyce commented on Chapter Fourteen, Demon Therapy on December 22, 2019 12:02pm

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.

Way to end a chapter the old fashioned big reveal Dun Dun DUN way! LOL.

Good news is it looks like Xander listened to Spike. Let’s see what Xander does with the info. That would greatly improve my opinion of the whelp.

Joyce commented on Interlude, A What-the-Hell Moment on December 22, 2019 11:59am


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.

Seems like Joyce got a glimpse of her own future per her response.

Joyce commented on Interlude, In Which Confusion Reigns on December 22, 2019 11:58am

It makes perfect sense for Buffy to put that question out there. Spike overreacted.

I am so disappointed that Buffy was off her game just because the beasts were “friendly appearing".

Joyce commented on Chapter Five, An Unexpected Turn of Events on December 22, 2019 11:54am

Buffy is too tiny to be a “heavy weight” on Spike.

That was a very nicely thought out conversation between our duo.

Joyce commented on Chapter Three, New Dimensions on December 22, 2019 11:54am

Angel is not too upset there for being a dead soul unsure of what awaits him. For some reason, i would have thought that they were the ones doing the rescuing. Well phut!

Ewww re Phut demon reproduction! Thanks to whoever helped them get out of the pit.

Joyce commented on Prologue, A Death and A Regret on December 22, 2019 11:52am

I suppose it was Angel who did the setting up thing with the judge? And neither one of them thought it was strange to come out of nowhere like that. Suppose this is part of the title.

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.

Author's Response on November 03, 2019 09:47am

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. hug

Fantastic story. I loved how they found each other early on and fought to stay together. Thank you for writing this, you are amazing.

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!

Author's Response on June 09, 2019 11:20pm

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! hugheartsflowers

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.

Author's Response on December 29, 2018 11:03pm

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)! hugheartsflowers It means a lot that you took the time to read and comment on every single chapter! Happy birthday and happy holidays!
