Aww, well this is a much nicer reaction to the morning after than expected! Apparently, all it took was some great Spike sex wink

And whewph, things really went to pot while they were gone!! Looks like it's time for a whirlwind adventure.

Author's Response on June 04, 2017 01:06pm

This is nicer reaction all around fic...be prepared. lol And yep, unlike the sex is bad with Angel and Parker theme, sex with Spike is of the good. 

Yep, an adventure is ahead! And much talking/other stuff. biggrinheart

The reaction the morning after wasn't as bad as I feared. Buffy's not overjoyed but we can hardly expect her to. So Willow is a vengeance demon, I liked how she wanted to do a good job, that's perfectly Willow. I didn't expect the portal, but this will make Buffy and Spike spend more time together.

Author's Response on June 04, 2017 01:02pm

The portal's another Angel intervention though that may not be as obvious as the wedding. Yay...glad you're enjoying!

he's had over a century of disguising any fear or hurt with largely false bravado. Or snark and on occasion threats.

Well whatever Angel did he really changed things. Willow is in the employ of D'Hoffryn and everyone is in another dimension. That will at least force Buffy and Spike to stay together, work together, until they get everyone back. By then they should realize there is something more than a spell between them. You don't have to love to marry after all and there are tender feelings between them.

Great update.

Yay! Glad you liked it! This whole fic is me trying to recapture the lightness of fic of old. I'm feeling nostalgic... And it sure is nice to write less broken Buffy.

Angel has done some planning, getting the date right and prepare things. The reaction when the spell breaks could be really bad though. It could be one of the shortest marriages we have seen. Using the spell like this isn't right, but they are so adorable that I just don't care. I do wonder how Angel plants to keep them marriaged? 

At least it will keep Riley away.

Author's Response on May 31, 2017 10:05pm

You'll see the reaction in the next chapter! I have 12-13 parts written. I'm going to finish the next chapter and post the aftermath of the spell soon! Hopefully, you won't be disappointed.

Hmmm... lots of thoughts going through my head on this one...but mostly that it's absolutely wonderful to see them really do the wedding stuff  (dress, suit, going to the courthouse). And phooey on you Riley. The whole chapter made my poor little Spuffy heart ache with happiness and even if I can *guess* where you're going with it...it was still really enjoyable. (I could be completely off base in my speculation, but I'll just have to wait and see!)

Author's Response on May 31, 2017 10:13pm

Oh oh! I can't wait to know if you guessed right. Going to post a little at a time as I have time to write chapters. Have lots of parts so far but many more to write! Thank you for reading!! heart

Angel picked this? Okay I know Sunnydale is a special kind of town so maybe in town the marriage would be legal. That would mean they would still be married after the spell breaks. It does for the moment keep Riley away and Angel would like that. But I'm not sure about this. But then again trying to figure out how Angel's mind works... 

I don't think Spike considered them getting married as something he just wanted to get it over with. I think he just wanted to get married and didn't care much about the details. He might have been in wedding planning mode with Buffy before but now that the ceremony is here he just wants to get married to her. As quickly as possible. It is Sunnydale after all. $hit happens!

Author's Response on May 31, 2017 10:10pm

Yep, the marriage is legal! I even looked up what you need in California to get married, but of course, Angel could pull some strings to get around the need for ID and stuff like that. I don't think Angel is all that worried about keeping Riley away from Buffy. Well, maybe a little. He's juggling a lot. And will have even more in the next chapter. And hahaha...yes, Spike didn't just want to get it over with. It was a little misread by Buffy of the kind that they made with each other on the show in SB. And yep, shits about to happen!!

Ok, so I'm guessing Angel is arranging the wedding? What about when the spell wears off, I wonder?

Yes! Angel totally arranged the wedding! You will see what happens when the spell wears off next chapter....

Okay, so... this went from like zero - sixty Spuffy in no time flat. This was nothing that I expected chapter two to be, and I'm so incredibly excited!! Hehe, Angel pulling wedding strings! I could kiss him!! 

And Buffy condoning breaking and entering! Oh, it's so cute. When the spell breaks, this is going to be quite... something, though. *hides for now and enjoys the fluffy happy Spuffy*

Author's Response on May 30, 2017 11:13pm

Okay, until you said that about zero to sixty, I didn't think about it. Maybe it was a reaction to my last fic where it took the whole damn story to get them together? facepalm And okay, maybe I wanted to write something where they're just together and have to figure it out? lol I am so excited that you're reading!! 

OffYourBird Replied on May 31, 2017 08:58am

I approve of all of these motivations! I'm really digging Spuffy togetherness stories right now, after reading a couple two many dark fics coupled with some very stressful will they/won't they ones. I probably need to stay away from S6 for a while, haha (which is ironic, since both fics I'm writing are S6... although one is super AU and has an incredibly happy Spuffy couple, so it doesn't really count in that way).

Anywho, there goes my rambling brain on this Tuesday morning (sorry). 

Yay, Something Blue! (happily waits for more chapters)

Author's Response on May 31, 2017 10:42pm

Well, this fic is sort of supposed to be an homage to older fics where Spuffy get thrown in together and have an adventure, so get ready for an adventure!

OffYourBird commented on Prologue, A Death and A Regret on May 30, 2017 10:54pm Liked

Haha, so I might be a bit gleeful that Angel has to go back and right how he wronged Spike and Buffy. And Angel is so distrusting of the message - reading it twice and not agreeing that it's THE biggest regret *shakes head*. He's so freaking caught up in his own narratives.

And poor Buffy and Spike! It almost sounds like they never got to together in life (or weren't together for long?) and that they've also been dead for ages (and apart in death too sad2).

How sweet that Cordy is here, though, and it sounds like Angel will get to be with her when he's done.

What an interesting start. Intrigued to see how this continues!

Author's Response on May 30, 2017 11:15pm

It does seem like a lame regret...but I could kinda see it if I strain my mind and squint at it sideways. lol Hoping that Angel can fix that little piece about separate heavens. And yay! I'm glad you're intrigued... squee

Ahhhh Angel's made all the arrangements! Don't know what will happen once the spell is ended but this is a good start. Hope they get to the honeymoon at least because it will make it harder for them to just walk away and pretend it was just the magic.

I'll bet there were many officials in Sunnydale in the know so the judge makes perfect sense. Of course there were demons getting married and every other normal life event for that matter. Not all demons for certain but some were pretty human like.

Love it.

Author's Response on May 30, 2017 10:47pm

He did make the arrangements! He is at least trying...he knows showing up would only throw Buffy for a loop and piss Spike off at this point in time. And yep, not everyone is as in the dark and "deeply stupid" as Snyder thought. I really wanted to write a fic that was just sorta fun. I hope this will be enjoyable... biggrin

Author's Response on May 30, 2017 10:28pm

Oh, the power of behind the scenes connections. Much easier than Angel going to them and trying to explain things...given how his appearance would impact a season four Buffy and Spike. And your second question is definitely a good one. You'll see in the next chapter.... biggrin

pfeifferpack commented on Prologue, A Death and A Regret on May 30, 2017 08:41pm Liked

Great start! Yes I always thought that the time in Angel S5 where Spike had no body was when Angel pecked away at what little confidence Spike had regarding Buffy and that was why Spike didn't go to her. It was petty and driven by jealousy (not necessarily about Buffy the person but the symbolism of Buffy being HIS). He was jealous that Spike was the better man, better vampire (not the evil part...Angel won that hands down). Even Spike choosing the soul made him jealous because it was something he would never have done.

Like that Cordy is there for him.

Hate that Buffy and Spike are not in the same place though! Good that they have peace but I always hoped they'd be together in the forever. Spike earned it IMHO.

Look forward to where this one goes. Anxious to see when Angel shows up and what he decides to do to bring them together. Lots of choices that would work. We know that Spike fell for Buffy even while he was with Dru even if he didn't know it so to push Spike towards Buffy could be early on. Buffy not so much.

Lovely.

Oh ANGEL.

Interesting hints...that Angel has been around doing he redemption bit for a lot longer than he was evil, and it's so sad that Buffy and Spike are both dead and at peace, but not together (being separated from loved ones is my idea of hell).

I love that even though, after reviewing everything, that while the PTB tell Angel what his biggest regret is, he still doesn't believe them, lol (well, it A regret, he's willing to concede).

Can't wait to see how he ends up changing things!

Author's Response on May 30, 2017 09:21pm

Okay...so I want you to know that i started this and wrote a good four or five chapters before you posted your delightful Seasonal Spuffy fic. I wasn't trying to copy you with the separate heavens/heaven element...great minds? Hope you enjoy the next parts. Will start more season four-ish and then diverge. And I was reading your beta and I may be head hopping here...hmm. Ah well. I'm too lazy to change all 71 pages. Hope it's still readable.

Since Cordelia mentioned him being good for centuries, this start a very long time into the future. An interesting scenario, Angel going back in time to save Buffy and Spike's relationship. Angel can be nice and after all the time he must be somewhat changed too. It will be interesting to see how this will work, will he be placed in his past body and what will he do? 

Another interesting fact was that Buffy and Spike are in different heavens, I wonder about that? Well, we will see.

Now, I have read innumerable fics about either Buffy or Spike going back in time to fix the Suffy relationship, but I don't think I've ever read one before when Angel does it. This should be Very Interesting.
