Another wonderful story. I really like that Spike and Cordelia are together and that they acknowledge that they know each loves another, but that there is love between them too. I hate that Dawn thinks that Spike raped Buffy and that she and Willow are both cowards for not setting it right. It was great that Tara was the one who helped them. My guess was Joyce.
I hope one day you feel up to giving us more.[Report This]
I knew it had to be Tara and The First. OK, wasn't sure if it was Tara or Joyce, but figured it was one or the other. How can The First don Willow's face? Willow hasn't died! A person has to have died for The First to impersonate them!
Looking forward to more![Report This]
Where's chapter 6??? It's just blank. Has a chapter gone missing, or accidentally posted blank, or did you just skip to chapter 7? Please check on it, if necessary; don't want to miss some of the story! (Tho I can't say I'm thrilled at Cordy being in a relationship with Spike! Nor Buffy with Angel![Report This]
Interesting new layers added to the story. I still think the gap to bridge between Buffy and William seems almost insurmountable. Unless Buffy makes some enormous strides in emotional maturity, I wouldn’t particularly care to see them together. While I never thought what Angel and Buffy had was anything more than a fairytale for a girl with daddy issues, the way she treats Spike/William is also not love. It will be interesting to see if you can fix this much damage and make a relationship between them worthwhile. I look forward to seeing how you weave this story together.[Report This]
So willow died? Interesting. You love to raise questions. You may want to give us at least SOME answers. Too many unresolved chords lead to discord.
Next chapter stood start to give some answers...but I warn you...answers without real explanations tend to drive people insane! That's my warning.
Spike and Cordelia love each other but they are not each others great love, that has a feeling of sadness over it. With all the planning they are doing in case of death it seems like they think that they will die.
On Buffy's side we can see that her friends knew about Spike and Cordelia but hasn't told her. Apparently Buffy hadn't understood what they believed Spike had done to her. She's feeling guilty and that she should.
The scenes with Tara and the First had a good creepy feeling in them, but when did this Willow die?
Magnus you almost had the key to my entire story in your review!
Now my thoughts really are starting to running wild😀
Love using Tara as the lady with the power. She is such a good choice to be a sort of guardian angel for little Anya (or anyone else for that matter).
Still pretty confused about what happened between Spike and Buffy and what Willow knows. Still really pissed at Buffy for letting everyone think Spike raped her. Gutless wonder. Right now I'm not liking her or Angel very much.
Spike and Cordy seem to think they might not be long for this world but they have selected a nice powerful group to watch over Anya.
Had a feeling it was the First. Not sure why the First thinks Anya belongs to him.
Looking forward to finding out more.
Tara....yeah. Definitely have a twist coming for you there Kathleen. And more you shall find out! :D
Wait, the first took Willow's form? Did I miss something? I thought the first could only take the form of those who had died, how does it have Willow's form?
That's the whole Fray connection I mentioned at the beginning of the chapter. If you've never read it...it's a great read!
Yae an update! I loved the scene between Buffy and baby. Id love to know more about what's going on in her head about this little girl. Always wondered how the slayer would accept motherhood.
Im a bit put off about the Spike/Cordelia pair. Interested to see what you do with this.
I can't wait to see how this Spuffy journey unfolds. I have a feeling it's going to be a long ride. As it should be given the circumstances.
Lookin foward to next!!
Hope you like the update!
Another great chapter! Buffy is still such a red hot mess. She has a long way to go before she and William can be together again. It will be interesting to see how you bridge this enormous divide. Can’t wait for the next installment!
I promise...I'm working on it!
After everything that have happened, Buffy can't ignore her feelings anymore, she can't stay away from her daughter and she still has feelings for Spike. We could see the intensity between her and Cordelia. This could turn ugly but we will have to see how it goes. It was such a good scene when Hank was hugging Buffy but also sadness over all this lost time. Good to see them explaining things to him and learning more about his involvement.
Also interesting to see Illyria's thoughts, it does know some things.
this story is going to be interesting for sure!
So Angel still wants Cordy. Seems she has an attraction to him as well but she is really involved with Spike and Anya. Don't know yet if they have gone beyond kissing and hugging but that would make a difference too.
Well we're starting to get some of the backstory now. Can't wait to find out more.
Buffy and Dawn will get to find out that Hank didn't abandon them as they've always thought. That will be good for all of them.
Buffy wants what she tossed away. She may have to work for it and also fight Cordy for it.
Thanks Kathleen. Hopefully you like where I'm taking this!
This is great. Lots of drama to keep up with in the beginning. Definitely on the bookshelf. Looking forward to reading more. Keep it going!!!
Will do! I'm posting the next chapter right now!
Slowly, slowly we are learning more about what happened etween Buffy and Spike but there's still many unknown things. As I said before, communications between the people here has not been good.
We can see that Anya is in a big danger. All these people together has probably drawn some interest towards her. The female figure we saw helping Anya clearly has some powers. If I had to guess, I would say that it was Tara, but there are other possibilities too.
The scenes with Anya had some a special intensity to them.
It's going to get really good soon....I think 3 or 4 more chapters of back story....and then we're a go for the nitty gritty!
Good to see Xander finally realise the truth and what's not to like about Angel getting a bloody nose.
Sweet scene between Buffy and Anya.
Buffy clearly has a lot to make up for when it comes to Spike.
I don't have much sympathy for Angel. And Anya and Buffy's relationship is something I'm going to pay special attention to this very sensitive subject...especially when you see what I'm about to do with this story.
Lots of action! There’s obviously a lot of lies and miscommunications going on in that house. At this point, I’m not sure how Buffy redeems herself. Whatever her reason for assaulting William might have been, I’m not sure that she gets a pass.
It will be interesting to see who the spirit is and how she killed the demons. What exactly is Anya’s destiny? I am looking forward to seeing where you’re headed with this! As always, thanks for sharing your story!
Welcome! And I'm trying to keep it as close to realistic for these characters as possible. Hopefully everyone will enjoy the story.
So Buffy beat Spike up while he was human. I wonder what led to that? I had hoped she was beyond beating on Spike after he got his soul at least.
Faith and Robin are just starting to draw together again and she's very protective of him so I'd say her emotions have grown and she's matured.
Dawn just does not seem to read between the lines at all. It's good that she is supportive of her sister but it should be obvious that Spike and Cordy aren't the "bad guys" here.
So there is someone else guarding Anya, someone with a great deal of power. Glad this powerful being got rid of the demons and vampires there to hurt Anya. Maybe the baby's namesake? Will be interesting to find out who as well as why they are all after this baby.
The next chapter will answer some of your questions.
