“Dawn and I have just finished listening to aggressively cheerful music sung by people chosen for their ability to dance. I fear cookie dough is next on the list.”

Best. Line. Ever.

I love this story. So wonderfully hot and tender. Yey!

Author's Response on January 11, 2021 12:09am

Hee!! Aww, thank you, lady! Though I can only take partial credit for that line, as a good chunk of that is adapted from canon.

So glad you enjoyed this fic! blow_kiss

Great chapter. I love how you write the arguments/bickering between Buffy and Spike. It all sounds so in character.
Buffy is trying hard to resist Spike. It looks like her plan failed. 

Author's Response on January 10, 2021 11:50pm

I'm so delighted you enjoyed this, BloodyThorn! It was a lot of fun dip into canon at this point -- Spuffy really is at their bickering best during this time period.

I just reread your fic and realised the first time I read it, was while I was still lurking (I did that for a long time it seems)... so obviously I have to leave a comment this time.

Such a great story. Just the right amount of banter, smut and adorable, sexy Spike. He has definitely ruined her for other men... and how could she possibly resist coming back. Well...finding her mothers dead body on the couch might be one reason not to stop by the next night.

I truly hate knowing that this hot and cute encounter will be followed almost immediately by devastating grief. Luckily, in my alternate univers that follows your story, she ends up drowning her grief in the arms of her newly aquired not-boyfriend.hug

Author's Response on January 10, 2021 11:45pm

Oh goodness, you're so sweet to come back and comment, my dear fellow bird! (And super big apologies for the tardy reply from my end.) I'm delighted you enjoyed this fic -- it was a lot of fun to play with this "slippery" scenario wink

"Luckily, in my alternate univers that follows your story, she ends up drowning her grief in the arms of her newly aquired not-boyfriend" - HAH! Well, funny you should mention... I have a sequel plot sitting in my doc which pretty much says exactly that biggrin

Thank you so much, darling!! flowers

Truly, though, you’re a gem of a writer d84;a039;. I guess I did tell you this enough this past couple of days, but it seems rude to read such an amazing fic and not say anything, ya know?

It’s hilarious how Buffy’s mind went to “ho-bag’ at any possible competition. Spike’s supposed to have eyes for her only LOL!

Thanks for having Spike ring up the disinviting being done before the events of that night. Buffy just could not handle the declaration of love earlier and just could not handle the truth.

I loved Spike's shy hesitation at the beginning, so much of his Big Bad front is just that where Buffy is concerned - a front.

I'm glad Buffy got rid of Ben's number.  I've always found the whole Ben thing a little odd (and not because Ben is Glory).  There was this season long vaguely half-hearted will he/won't he be a romantic interest for Buffy that no one, even Buffy, seemed to really care about as it was clear the real story was with Spike.  So I was very glad to see her throwing his number away.

The smut.  Oh my goodness. So very well written.  So hot.  And Buffy is well and truly ruined for all other men. :)  

I'd love to see a continuation of this.  Buffy is kind of in the S6 using-Spike-for-sex head-space, without all the back from heaven depression.   Great job, thank you.

Author's Response on June 07, 2019 11:23pm

Hee, poor Spike doesn't actually know what to do when he finally might succeed in getting Buffy. Bless his non-soul.

I agree, the Ben thing was SO contrived. Really just a way for them to express Buffy's emotional state of being (with the really rude irony of making her chase after Glory's host)

I'm so glad you enjoyed the smut biggrin

I am definitely planning to continue this 'verse, so stay tuned!

This part was also excellent. I love that Spike didn't expect Buffy to actually follow him to his crypt. And his shyness when she actually carried on a conversation with him was very sweet.

When he deliberately stirred up the Chirago demon? So very in character, and so perfectly explained to Buffy after she'd punched him (also a believable reaction). 

“I’ve never come that hard before.”

Spike groaned deep and low, almost desperate. His pace turned more voracious, his hips slamming into her with force just short of pain. His hand came down and caressed her clit with his thumb pad. “Let’s see if we can’t raise the bar, yeah?”

I love that he saw that as a challenge, so very Spike. And his hope, that she'd maybe give him more than just this night, was so lovely. I can picture that shining in his eyes so clearly. 

The love scene was hot, and sweet, and so well written. 

Dropping Ben's number was the right call, and I'm so glad Buffy came to that decision herself. This was so, so lovely, I really enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing!

love how you wrote everyone going straight to Robot. Heehee! Hilarious!

Spike slowly lifted himself from the ground, massaging his throat and staring at her like he’d just won the damn lottery.

Yes! That line was so perfect. It so clearly showed how Spike would react to Buffy's slip of the tongue. Love it! 

Your Anya is exceptional as well. She really is hilarious, and I love how blunt she is, and you captured that perfectly.

“Well, I don’t think I misheard anything,” Anya was saying with a huff. “My hearing is excellent—far above average.”

Tara being supportive was also very in character. 

I love that when given an inch, Spike tries to steal several miles. Buffy gave him an opening, and he took advantage. This bit below, was just beautiful:

Buffy stumbled back as the words struck her, everything turning even more upside down. “Happiness?” she asked incredulously, then before she could help herself, blurted out, “You think I can make you happy?”

Spike’s gaze softened at her tone, his stance loosening. “I know you can, Buffy. How could you not, incredible woman like you?”

Definite shades of Season 7 Spike there. And you got see how his words smashed through Buffy's walls. 

And how the chapter ended? With Buffy agreeing to just once, was lovely. Of course, I'm hoping it's not just once. But a start is a start, and Spike has one. Really excellent beginning!

"I love how you wrote everyone going straight to Robot." - Hee! I always find this so funny, because they figured it out pretty much that quickly in canon, too, and then completely didn't gather when Buffy was actually the Buffybot, haha.
