Good encounter between Buffy and the commandos. I'm guessing Riley is the one who gave her the warning.
I'd still say the Initiative was a worse evil than W&H. At least W&H knew they were working for evil and weren't deluding themselves that they were the good guys!
Good for Xander for stepping in and helping. He was right to suspect that the dring was roofied. Glad the girl was wise enough to not fall for it. Bet it's one of the commandos too and not just a random frat boy. They had a bad attitude about women.
Wow! You even made me feel sorry for Veruca! Nothing worse than thinking that you could just disappear and no one notice or care!
Since there isn't as much to kill, Buffy do have time to think about how different her life is now. Some informationmabout the soldiers would of course be good and Buffy is using what she got. I liked her phonecall to Faith, It's nice to see this friendship between them.
A good Xander part, he has trouble finding himself and feels out of touch with the others. It was Some good job with his thoughts. The word "anything" can have such a strong erotic feeling, but it was good to see him hitting that creep.
Veruca's part was another good one. Being trapped like this is bound to bring you down and make you question yourself.[Report This]
This is so great! “People listen to and appreciate Anta” is one of my favorite fandom takes and I’ve never read a story that goes back this far before. Anya’s changes early on are very well chosen and written to leave them in this setting[Report This]
You actually made me feel sorry for Veruca! But if she gets loose, she will not hesitate to kill a bunch of them though they will probably put her down!
Xander really missed out big time on Anya. He never knew all she did for him unril he didnt marry her in canon. Willow took that from him here and he won't ever know it. Thank god Giles appreciates her mind. And Anya stands a really good chance of keeping "council giles" from making a comeback! (S7)[Report This]
Ooh, Buffy's playing 'I'm just a silly little Valley Girl' for the commandos. Spike won't like that she's intending to go into the lion's den......
Love the Faith & Buffy chat.
Wondering who Xander played the White Knight for....[Report This]
Riley is almost having a panic attack but that is understandable. Realising that something has been done to him but he doesn't know how it really would affect him. So many scary thoughts was running around in his mind. He realises that he can't trust the organisation he is part of and that makes him actually more open to outsiders. This makes him thinking differently about the hostiles. Ever since I read "Pandora's Boxers" I have seen Harmony and Riley as an interesting pairing. It always good to see her being smart.
Poor Sandy, Spike really scared her, but she seems loyal so he should treat her better. Being around Buffy has softened him though. I liked how he though that her feeling scared felt bad and how he tried to calm her down and explain himself.
Another good scene with Giles and Anya, you have her voice so perfectly right.[Report This]
I actually feel sorry for Riley (and I despise him with a passion). It's terrible knowing that the RL military often experimented on our own troops in the USA. It is not at all out of reason to think they would in a group like Finn's. Still very much the soldier though he knows and fears but still follows orders!
Walsh thought it was some sort of genius vampire, or something. ROFL...that is the FIRST time anyone has ever put genius in a sentence regarding Harmony!
I love Harmony in this position! She was ALWAYS so completely human (or just like she had been as a human that is) except her food source and who/where she hung out. She would flummox Finn and his notions!
Oh my... Harmony and Riley actually might be a viable couple. She's the kind of girl who would love a big, strong, man to "take care of her" the way he seemed to want with Buffy. She's strong because she's a vampire but willing to take a back seat. Yeah...this could be a workable couple! G I Joe and Barbie!
Poor Sandy. She is a sad little thing. I hope Spike starts to treat her well. She is terrified all the time but I think she's loyal.
Anya has been so good for Giles LOL. I can't see him turning into Travers with her there in his life.
Riley & Harmony... now, that's a pairing I could get behind. If Riley got too patronising and annoying, Harmony would simply eat him. Interesting that she can smell that he's 'off'.
And Sandy has given Spike an idea....
Love Giles & Anya! And Anya is very... motivated.[Report This]
Sandy hat es möglicherweise gut gemeint, aber für Spike bedeutet es mehr stress.
Anya und Glies...(schade das deine Geschichte nur R ist) würde gerne mehr über die beiden lesen
Ansonsten wiedermal ein wundervoller Teil.
