That was awesome! I love your work, don't know how I missed this before.

Author's Response on November 08, 2020 12:07am

I actually almost missed it myself when I wrote it. I looked at the word count one day and thought, ‘I wrote THAT? When did I do that?” I’m glad you liked it!

 Wow things are really not perfect around here. No one is getting what they need. Except maybe Spike? 

Author's Response on October 13, 2020 03:28pm

Spike's got a chip in his head, he's not real happy, either.

This is one of my new favorite stories! Your dialogue is so spot on you could have written for the show! And hilarious. I will never forget the K9 joke Spike had at Riley's expense. So many great lines. I never wanted this story to end. 

On a deeper note, you really tapped into how damaging a non-intimate relationship can be when one partner doesnt even try to meet the needs of the other and communication is non existent between them. Speaking from experience, this was very insightful and I wish i came to Buffy's realization earlier in my life. Sometimes, love isn't enough. I loved that you explored that aspect of the story. 

Lastly the introduction of Dawn was brilliant! The way she just popped in right next to Spike as if she'd been there the whole time. Magnificent!

You really have a great way of combining real world emotions, hilarious dialogue, and screen melting smut to make me a big fan. I'm so happy you are writing new stories. I came back to reading Spuffy cause 2020, so it's been a blast to fall in love with a new writer.

 

Author's Response on October 13, 2020 03:33pm

I'm very glad! This was just intended as a little throw away then, and then it grew, and grew, and... well, there it was, with all the growth and stuff, and I looked at it and just asked myself, "Where did that come from?" I'm glad it appeals. 

The stuff with Angel... yeah, there's no way to depict it as anything but harsh. Love isn't always enough... and Buffy should have learned that in canon, but instead she got IWRY and some rose-tinted view of the past. And I wanted her to open her eyes so much to what she DIDN'T actually have there, and what she was throwing away by holding onto it so hard. I figured if she got it, it wouldn't have been great, anyway. So I wanted to show that. 

I'm so, so glad to have a new reader! The readers are the life's blood of the writer, they really are.

I probably should have taken this one a bit longer -- there are scenes I feel like I'm missing that would have made a stronger narrative. But I'm glad what I got made you so happy! Thank you!

Spike and Dawn time is my favorite. Even more than Spike and Joyce time. Maybe Darkest Dawn should be next in the queue.

Author's Response on December 28, 2019 06:39am

Darkest Dawn has some awesome Spike/Dawn sire relationship stuff going, though Dawn is a little different, since she’s a fledge. I had a lot of fun writing it so, I will absolutely say to put it on the queue!

Yep, there’s Dawn, now. And I’m sorry! But I couldn’t have Buffy walk away after Angel came back without her at least TRYING... because Buffy would TRY.

Allison42 commented on Not Alone on December 26, 2019 02:02am Liked

So, the bomb’s out...the scenes with Buffy and Angel and then beaten Spike were grueling, and I mean that in a good way. Very well done. I liked her questioning how someone with a soul could do that. And I think it was last chapter, but I liked Oz acknowledging the man Spike was regarding his lovers. And I’m rooting for Cangel, too, because I like Cordy and she makes Angel less insufferable. She’s a truth teller, and I liked that she placed the blame on both sides, telling Angel what he didn’t want to hear. And calling Doyle. She cuts through the bullshit.

Author's Response on December 28, 2019 06:37am

I can get gruesome at times. I can. It’s a thing. Cordy DOES make Angel less insufferable, that is exactly what she does.

Nice!!!!! That was a lot of unexpected goodness! Wow, I feel about as skilled with words as Buffy right now. I didn’t comment on the last chapter because I’m tired and I just wanted to keep reading before I fell asleep, and that was more emotional content I had feelings about, but not words for right now. But there was a lot of plot stuff that happened in this chapter, and it was all interesting. I wasn’t expecting Oz to be utilized  this much, it’s not something you see too much of. And I like Spike thinking on his feet.

I loved every single thing about this chapter. All of it. Ok, especially every single smidgen of Joyce inviting Spike over for donuts, hot chocolate, and art/literature/shop/Buffy talk. I will always love every single minute I can get of Spike and Joyce time. heart But also Buffy’s internal monologue and being thoughtful after Spike left, and Willow pointing out even she got why Joyce would pick Spike over Angel and that Spike talks about his shit.

Spike and Joyce friendship is always a delight.

The conversation between Buffy and Joyce was awesome. I love that Joyce has a soft spot for Spike, and not so much for Angel. Also, I forgot til now about Joyce’s little zoning out spell at the beginning. Now my curiosity about that has been revived.

Author's Response on December 28, 2019 06:33am

Well, we know Joyce wasn’t so keen on Angel, and we know she was willing to converse with Spike. I figured it wasn’t such a big leap.

I’m sleepy from Christmas turkey and I don’t think I’m going to have the words to do justice to this chapter, but I couldn’t let it go uncommented upon. The shadow play scene was gorgeously erotic, as was their talk about killing each other afterwards. I liked the pillow fight thrown in between as contrast and for highlighting all the ways they’d mesh well if it weren’t for their history and situations.

The Spuffy scenes are so engrossing, I keep forgetting about the direness of his situation with the Initiative.

Author's Response on December 28, 2019 06:33am

Ah, the tryptophan is strong with this one. That’s a good thing. The shadow play scene came to me like a gift, and I didn’t expect to write it, but I did, and it really resonates with people. It was fun to have them playing at fighting rather than real fighting. 

Spuffy is the real story here. Of course it is.

This is a really good story!

You write sexually frustrated Buffy so well, both in this chapter and when she and Angel thought they had to live in celibacy. Having been in a marriage with almost the same amount of frustration as Buffy is experiencing, it’s easy to recognise the feelings she has... so well done on your part!applause

She still tells herself that it was all about the physical need with Spike, but her thoughts on it being something they did with each other and the amount of time she spends thinking about him betrays her.

Nobody’s really happy, but everyone pretends to be... so sad (and realistic, unfortunately)

Author's Response on May 06, 2019 12:14am

I.. may have been drawing from bits of real life, too. The thing is, "the physical" tells one a lot about the personality of the person in question... and makes it not just physical fairly easily. 

Thank you! I'm glad you're enjoying!

Yeah, Angel over reacted just a bit there. Sheesh. I was wondering when someone would think about consulting the Oracles.

And the thought entered her head unbidden, whole and entire, shocking her with the realization. I love you. -- this bit made me tear up
