I'm just happy to hear from you. Coming back to Spuffy soon? I sure do miss you.
Aw, I'm glad me being a complete flake didn't scare you away entirely! I don't really know when I'm coming back, but I hope the Spuffy love is rekindled someday! I have a few other projects in RL and another fandom I'm caught up in at the moment. I do miss all the familiar EF faces! Thanks for the lovely note.
I just want to let you know that whether or not your circumstances or desire lead you to continue with this story, it’s been an enjoyable read. You’re one of the more gifted writers on this forum. Thank you for sharing your talents, and all the best to you.
This entire comment really means a lot to me, I can't thank you enough for letting me know you love this like I once did. I don't know if it'll ever be completed, but I hope, someday, I'll come back and re-find the love for it, especially when I know there are people like you looking forward to it. I really appreciate your support.
I've been enjoying this very much. I get that real life interferes, but I hope to read more of this one day.
I appreciate you dropping a note! I dom't have plans to finish it now, but perhaps someday!
Big round of applause for Tara!
I hope Buffy's right and going back to face Glory is a good idea. In canon, everyone helped. *worries*
On the other hand, I think we're all ready for Spuffy to get a room. :)
Sorry it's been so long! I'm really glad you enjoyed and thanks for reading!
Guh. There's cuddling and UST, and talking, and Buffy fell in love!!! Or noticed it, anyway. Buffy's risking the pain! I'm so proud of her.
-- that was meant to be on the U-Turn chapter, my browser got confused
I keep worrying that Spuffy are being too noticable and memorable, but everyone seems nice, and they SAY they won't tell... *shrugs cautiously*
"A week away from Sunnydale and suddenly people were trying to repay her for doing her duty." Haha, right? Crazy, that. People appreciating the whole saving lives thing.
“So back in the olden days people would bathe in some of the springs because they’re warm like a hot tub but that’s really bad for the bacteria in it and…” OOOOH, I didn't know that about the bacteria! Why do we want to be nice to the bacteria, though? Does something bigger live in there that depends on them? I may have to google this later...
That's DELIGHTFUL! What a sensible Buffy. I loved it when her freakout at waking up with Spike ended in, like, two seconds and she just went right back to cuddling!!
They all love one another so much! <3 Maybe Buffy isn't fully caught up on the Spike loving yet, but she's doing GREAT. She'll get there.
They are definitely not keeping a low profile, though. *worries*
“Hard to miss the state of my trousers?” This is especially funny given what Sunalso has said about your beta-reading duties.
It's good-different!! Go figure! (Buffy really needs to talk to Spike a little more, so he doesn't have to ask if she seethingly hates him and stuff.)
Oh my, I love that UST!
I'm enjoying the suspense about whether Glory is following them.
That is a wonderful beastie! Demon biology is my jam.
Making up random demons is so much fun! And luckily Sunalso knows a few fancy geology things to keep me from looking like a complete idiot. I am so behind responding but thanks for reviewing!
"Buffy smiled, enjoying the sight of her sister avidly watching the moose." Buffy gets to show Dawn the world like she wanted in "Grave"... only without having to trudge through season 6! Win!
"She felt Spike’s hand brush against her knee and wondered how he always seemed to know when she needed a little extra support." <3 Because he's amazing, that's why, Buffy
"And, in a dark corner of her brain that she didn’t want to acknowledge, she was a little jealous. Dawn never seemed to have any doubts about relying on Spike, but that was a luxury Buffy wasn’t allowed." Ohhh
"Still, it shouldn’t have hurt so much to think she couldn’t trust him." Good! Everything proceeding according to plan. *shifty shippy eyes*
"Spike glanced at her after seeing the second marked jeep and shrugged, silently telling her he’d noticed too." Wordless Spuffy teamwork is the BEST!
Spike in sweatshirts? Good idea. Then he can be all cuddly and adorable.
Ohh, yup, there is such a lot of heavy things on Buffy's mind in season 5! The part right before she teared up felt so true to character.
Lovely PDAs, good job, jealous!Buffy.
Dawn is great and asking the right questions ^^
Oh boy, now that Spike KNOWS Buffy enjoys the show, I expect he's going to keep pressing that advantage for all it's got. *g* I wouldn't expect anything less of him...
"He wasn’t ever going to make room for her in his life." THAT! RIGHT THERE! Is the main reason why Bangel is history. Because Angel chose so.
I love that Buffy gets to see the world, where there is nature and stuff, and I love the tentative gentleness between her and Spike and the constant back and forth with Dawn. ^^ A family vacation!
Whoop, eeryone's being SO SENSIBLE! I love it.
Spike arguing with Dawn for an hour, hee! They're matched in stubbornness. ^^
Sooooo does the vampire song exist in our 'verse?
The vampire song totally does exist! Blue Oyster Cult's I Love the Night (my musical taste veers Dean-from-Supernatural-pretty much terrible)
DEFINITELY a vampire song! Thank you.
And no pressure at all re:review responses.You already gave me some free fiction -- the way I see it, you don't owe me anything.
""Two,” Buffy said grimly.
“One,” Spike countered." Bwhahah! :))
"“Uh, are we going to get a room eventually?” Dawn asked from the back seat. “You guys have been in there yelling at each other forever.”" Yeah, Spuffy, get a room! ;)
"Buffy couldn’t tell if it was meant to be in black and white or if the tv set was just that old." Beautiful. :D
"Was it really that easy to believe she’d happily start…doing things with Spike?" This is a good thought, because at this point Buffy has recent evidence that her friends wouldn't be super shocked or angry or anything.
"Dammit, how the hell was she supposed to have a normal life..." pssst, you're not. *hugs the Buffy*
"It was just starting to sink in how much time they were going to be spending together." *rubs hands together*
"A moment later, she brightened. “Oh boy, you’ve never traveled with Dawn, have you?”" Hee! :)
HAIR NICENESS ALERT AAAAAA
Leg space is so important.
I think I'd love Spike's car music.
I see why it's good to be in Buffy's POV. The fun part is how she's starting to see Spike differently. ^^
“Except that all my memories are fake, so maybe I actually love it.” THE BEST! Dawn wins this chapter.
"She’d had to take a shower and dig out her favorite leather pants to stop the icky feelings wearing those ultra-girly clothes had given her" RELATABLE
Hee, Dawn takes NONE of Buffy's bullshit about Spike! :D Also none of what maybe isn't bullshit, just in case.
Whoop, they're making good plans!
I loved Tara and Anya!
*kicks the door open* I've been informed there's quality Dawn Summers in this story. Also, a hobbit told me to read it months ago. So, at long last, I found time to check it out, and I think I like it!
Oh, we're off to a fabulous start right away! *g* I loved all of Buffy's thoughts about the kiss. A lot of that is going straight into my headcanon, and I'm sure it will greatly enhance my next Intervention rewatch. ^^
"The birds were chirping away in the trees and leaves rustled overhead. The ground was still muddy from a recent rain. This was her town; her world. She wasn’t going to give Glory the chance to take it away." I loved these details.
“Not just like that.” Yay!! Tell him, Buffy! :D
"Buffy had wracked her brain for any way he could possibly benefit from being tortured by Glory but was coming up blank." This is especially satisfying to read after that one dumb tumblr post I saw yesterday about how soulless Spike could never love anyone. *rolls eyes*
I liked Buffy's conversation with Giles! They disagree, but they're a team, and they respect each other. <3
Sorry it's been so long! Thanks for reading.
