Awwww. Soo sweet!! I love that Buffy answered Spike's promise with her own similar promise.. i just love the romance between these two.
Yay! I'm so glad that you loved the romantic Christmas chapter! Just letting you in on a little secret, but my friend, eyesthatslay, who created the banner? She added that image of the two hands with rings, and I sorta had to write that in. Haha. So, art influencing the story at its finest! She told me later that she did it on purpose. Ha! Thank you again so much for all your thoughts!
I am almost at the end of this fic, and one of the highlights of my day is that Maggie Walsh is dead? How twisted is that? anyway, as I have said quite a few times in the duration of my time reading this story, I really love this fic. You have done so well creating this alternate reality. although I am hoping to read more from this reality and wishing I can see the next season where Buffy and Spike fight off Glory. heheheh. Wishful thinking, bnut I am hopeful. Thanks again for sharing and I am off to read the next one!
LOL...I love that you're happy about it! Hmmm...I hadn't thought about continuing. I'd have to come up with a plot... maybe Angel and Cordy could come back? Now you have me thinking! Thank you for enjoying it so much that you want more! It means a lot...
Awww, everyone is correcting each other's issues. i am really liking where all of this is going. Great work here. Thank for this amazing fic. I really have been enjoying it so far.
Wrapping up all the threads was challenging...lol. I think I worried I missed one. There were so many in this fic! Thank you so much for reading and leaving me all these wonderful comments!
So Adam lives??? i am confused.. I thought Willow killed him... Hmmm, interesting and curious to see what happened so i am off to read the next one.
Ooo...sorry it's confusing. Nope. Adam is not alive. Spike's granted wish killed Adam! But Maggie is still alive!
i like the little Scooby get together. I enjoyed that they can all snark, laugh and are willing to help each other out. i am most happy that Xander seems more accepting of Spike. That is of the good here. Excited to see what happens next. So i am off to read the next chapter.
They're all being real with each other after surviving something so big!! Glad you liked it and thank you so much!
I was thinking if whether or not they will be making an appearance in this story. Guess they are. Good think Angel decided to deal with them. i am still crossing my fingers to see if there will be a part where Angel fights with his past self. Just asking of course.. hehehehe
Oh yes! I had to figure out what to do with the Gentlemen! And ha...I didn't manage to squeeze in Angel fighting his past self. Sadly.
Ok, I would say that I cannot imagine Angel doing any form of goofy happy dance but that would be a lie because I saw David Boreaze in Bones and I do know he can do goofy dances. heheheh.
LOL...he totally did a goofy dance in his head on Angel, too, which I totally channeled here!
Wonder what happens now. I mean, Willow is now back to being human-ny Willow and Spike just wished for his soul. I wonder if the wishes Willow granted would reverse now that D-Hoffy decided to take out Willow's powers. This is getting really interesting every chapter i read. I am excited to see what happens next. Good luck and off to read the next one now
The wishes stand despite the reversal. I was so so so nervous about this chapter as I'd never written D'Hoffryn and had no idea how I'd get them out of this jam. lol Thank you for letting me know you're enjoying it!!
I love Cordy's summary of Angelus and the battle between him in Buffy during Alcantha. I love it even more is the fact that she is so confident that Buffy and Spike have this all under control. Nice and amazing. that's all I can say.
Cordy's many emotions...she goes through such a rainbow of them through the whole fic! Haha. Thank you so much!
The excitement I am getting from this fic is amazing. i cannot wait to see how Buffy will work her anger on Walsh when she sees what she had done to Spike.
Yay! I'm glad it's exciting...it is a bit of a roller coaster at this point!
Why do I feel happy when I see Cordy lose it? or panics? hehehehe... I think it is more because I can imagine her face and thinks that she looks really cute when she does so.
She does panic in the absolute best way! lol You know, all your comments are making me want to write more Cangel. Or read some Cangel fic. Thank you again!
Okay. If Walsh can out torture Spike when Glory and Angelus couldn't this only proves that she is more evil than her. I cannot believe that this is happening. Not the soul thing, mind you. I don't care about that. More like the part where Riley got outed. Heh. I really did not expect that. Poor Spike. Hope this doesn't put a damper on the plans Buffy and the other would cook up. Off to read what happens next now.
Yep...she's pretty awful! I originally tried to write the torture scene and just couldn't stomach it so it happens off-screen. Maggie isn't dumb and Riley's not that sneaky. He's made some moves that are out of the ordinary between Willow and Spike...
hehehehe. Have I told you how I love that you have given Angel a sense of humor? heheheh. I really love it. Cordy sounds really stressed. i too am hoping that Spike doesn't suffer permanent damage in this confrontation with Walsh.
Cordy brings out his sense of humor, and it's so fun to write! I've actually never written Cangel before this fic, and I just loved writing them! Thank you so much for appreciating it, too!
I do agree. Walsh was human yet by far she is one of the most cruelest villains in the series. I mean, sure Angelus would be considered evil and cruel, but it was expected of him. Maggie though, she is human yet she acts too coldheated and the way she views demons, its plain creepy and how she saw Adam? Double the creep factor. Again, Maggie is more villainous than Angel, but not more than Warren.
She was so horrible. I'm so bummed that the actress had to leave early for some reason. It would have been so interesting to see what they'd do with human evil in season four. Totally agree with your assessment about her being between Angelus and Warren.
I am more saddened that Spike went with Riley. I hope nothing bad happens to him. I also hope he meets up with Willow. I now want to see what Willow looks like as a vengeance demon..
He's going to try to help Willow, but it's not good. He's going into the lion's den for sure!
So Angel was the reason for Riley being there.... Not sure how I should feel about that. I do know that I don't like it.
Angel is sorta putting out fires as they come up. lol He's scrambling a bit.
Dun, dun, dun, duuun!!!! Riley is here and I am hoping that he won't be a jackass through out this fic. Fingers cross.
Riley is not going to be a jackass...it's season four so he's kinda clueless and not so bad. He got really bad in season five. Such a jerk in season five!
Well, I am happy that Xander and Anya got good counsel from both Spike and Buffy. Hopefully Xander screw it up this time around.
Xander got called on his stuff awfully early for him so there is hope!
Spike and Buffy acting all domestic. Love stories like that . Can't wait to see what happened to the others. Off to read the next one now.
I love domestic Spuffy...and try to include it as much as possible in my fics. They need this breather for what's to come, too! Thank you again for all these delightful comments!
Dun sun run duuuun!!! Hahahaha poor Spike . Wonder how Joyce will give him the talk. Off to read about it now!
Spike is well in over his head with Buffy now! No going back...hehe.
Aww. sweet interlude. Love the interactions between these two. Why do U feel that I have already told youthat?
LOL...I enjoy hearing that you love their interactions! Even if you already told me...
Cirdy making an appearance was super unexpected. But this challenge was created not to have Angel be exclusively be the time traveller. Anyway interest chapter. Lived that Spike and Buffy have decided to still try to be with each other. Off to read the next one now.
Oh, Cordy is pissed about this! lol But it did get out of helpless mode...sorta. I didn't know that about the challenge! Spike and Buffy just needed some time alone together to make things work though at this point, there's a lot of uncertainty.
Ok, interesting chapter and I like that Buffy learned of her demonic heritage earlier. Wonder how this will affect her relationship with Spike.
She did! This also affects everything going forward, including her relaxing about Spike.
Love the reprieve of seeing Angel and Cordy but I am too excited to find out what happened to Spik. So off to read the next chapter.
There is so much anxiety, and Cangel becomes a commentary on all that! Totally understand!
Ooooooh, I think I have a vague memory of this part of the fic. I am hoping that Spike will be ok in the next chapter.
Yay...hopefully the cave cuddling scene is kind of memorable...their break in the adventure. Thank you for reading!
Love the actions in this fic. Great work. Reading the next chapter to see what will happen next.
Sooo...I didn't intend this conversation to lead to themes that sort of took over the rest of the fic/to a fix it of season four, but it did! Glad you enjoyed the action!
