I just love the specific revenge used for each of these murderers.
Giles being alive as a vampire leaves many possibilities. He could redeem himself in some way. Giving him a soul would really torment him for eternity especially now that he's raped and killed as a vampire
Love how they played Willow into being the one to put that soul in him too.
Willow is going to get their full focus now.
very, very, intense chapter. but it's the chapter that this whole journey was heading towards. of course i didn't see giles-as-a-vampire, and i really, really didn't see xander being raped by giles, either.
willow is still in denial; her own hubris regarding her intelligence will be her downfall.
and i especially loved tara facing willow, with no stutter, no lack of confidence. and with a lot more 'faith' in herself. (pardon the pun).
yes, the last couple of paragraphs were disturbing, but you did warn up.
i'm enjoying the hell out of dawn's avenging angel's conversations and characterisations.[Report This]
J'aurais presque préféré les voir encore en vie quelques temps pour la vengeance mettre les humains, la population contre eux mais voir alex mort n'est pas glorieux cest même trop vite et pas assez fort.
Giles en vampire intéressant il ferait un bon vampire.
Willow qui est encore en vie.
And now they come for the people who gave Buffy and the others the motivation for their trip over to the 'dark side'. The ones who betrayed her and sealed their own fate.
I have to say that the punishments are character-appropriate. Each is confronted by the person they hurt the most, and sees that person having moved on happily without them.
Good to see Giles finally appreciating Buffy's skill and ingenuity. Wonder if they'll accept his apology...
Idly wondering whether they're only keeping Willow alive to re-soul Giles - and if so, how he will then react to what he did to Xander. I'm a little disturbed by the way Xander went out... but only a little.
Ok, I think this was my favorite chapter so far. Willow’s reaction was pretty much what I pictured. Giles being turned, raping and killing Xander, I did not see coming. A very fitting end to the Xan-man!!!
Can’t wait for the next chapter!!![Report This]
Wow!! What a chapter!! I got chills!! So amazing!!! Finally the real revenge will begin!! I can’t wait to see Willow curse him after all that!! It will be epic!!! This story just gets better and better!!! I love it so much!!! Please more!!![Report This]
I wonder if liking this as much as I do, is a good thing😊 The revenge is going on and it took some disturbing turns but it is so very good. It seemed fitting that Giles could be impressed by this revenge Buffy did even with what it did to himself.
As I keep mentioning, it is disturbing but also so very enjoyable which is disturbing in it's own right.[Report This]
OH, Thank you! I have been stalking daily for an update on this. (and all other WIPs too!)
I did not expect that for Giles and of Giles. Can't wait to see what you do to Willow. I really
enjoy this story. Loving dark Buffy and all the others that were never really treated right by
Xander and Willow, imo. So looking forward to the next chapter.[Report This]
I love a dark buffy story!
Pretty decent read. Seems like the Scoobies are a bit out of character, but I guess it helps drive the story. I certainly don't mind reading a good Scoobies bash once in a while.
And can I say Wow at the level of detail Buffy's putting into her vengeance. Apparently Angelus unwittingly created his replacement.
Looking forward to more![Report This]
God, that was an amazing chapter! Might be my favorite, so far. I liked the structure, rotating through the three targets as they were driven to madness or distraction, step-by-step. The Faith/Tara sex scene was INCREDIBLE! And Spike’s closing scene with Xander gave me a wicked grin myself![Report This]
This is an interesting world in itself on top of being a revenge story. It’s impressive how this still feels driving toward the future plans so far in and that the main group is getting stronger relationships after so many interesting twists on canon[Report This]
The revenge is moving into the final stages. Giles, Willow and Xander has lost everything they had and now they are losing their minds. The revenge is played out so perfectly. A great scene Faith choose to torment Willow with, very hot. I liked the talk the two men on Xander's job had. It's such a typical male thing, we complain a bit but in the end we always want our women to be happy.
All this revenge should be disturbing but it really isn't, I can really enjoy it.[Report This]
Is it over now for Xander. Sounds like Spike's ready to finish him.
I love how they all have no clue what's even real any longer. They are being tortured in just about every way short of physical.
Buffy lost everything thanks to them. Now they are losing everything too. All they held dear and even their own mind and agency for that matter. Giles can't even control his situation with the vampiress.
