Loved this. Lots of smiles. The consent ritual was such a beautiful addition--perfect healthy, loving acknowledgement of their past with a promise to never go there again, with either mega bitch Buffy or out of control Spike. Your characterization is spot on and I love the Buffy-isms. The sex is a great mixture of hot and sweet. Thanks for writing this![Report This]
Clever turn there at the end.
I like how you used the 20,000 prompt to turn it into a look at Buffy having quite a kill count too. I can see this coming up with no trouble. They really are matched as warriors. It's like two soldiers talking about their exploits in a way, with respect. Then...because it is them... it turns hot.
Hahaha! I'm so glad that Spike was there to lend a hand in reaching that final, BIG number! He always was very good at helping out at the last minute. I truly wish we'd been able to see more of this kind of relaxed, easy-in-love stuff on the show. We got snippets of its possibility, but not enough! Thank you SO much for honouring the archive with this fantastic oneshot.[Report This]
I liked how they figured out that it should be about 20 000 vampires. It was sweet to see them playing. It is great to see them being in this good relationship. Good to see that they have their little ritual and a safe word, they don't take any risks with that anymore.[Report This]
This is great, sweet and hot and fun all in one.
But, shouldn't the Turok Han mostly count for Spike?
Maybe, yeah, but I didn’t want to have her be older than 26~ and I didn’t think much more than 3 vampires for day was realistic, so to get her near enough for Spike to get to his last bit of dialogue, I needed to include the Turok-Han. It was her idea to empower the slayers anyway, which is part of the reason why they held them off until Spike’s amulet activated anyway, so I figured it was good enough for these purposes.
Well, Spike would most certainly have no problem with sharing them, haha.
Oh this was so precious and so incredibly sweet! I loved the little nuances you dropped in here, with how gentle Spike held himself and the slow-building conversation mirroring their gradual passion. When I realized where the title of the fic would come into play, it was an instant smile I loved this and thank you so much for sharing this! xx[Report This]
He loved playing games with her, she figured because the games were a constant reminder they were having fun.
- Yas, so much this! This is what makes spuffy so delightful 💜
They had a ritual ever since they’d got back together...
- God I love this. Beautiful concept 😍 Fills me with tender fuzzies.
"How about I stake you for the magic twenty thousandth?"... Her vamp was such a goofball. But, oh, twenty thousand felt so good.
- Perfect! The blend of fun and hotness is so delicious.
I love everything about this gorgeous scene, it's wonderful . Thanks so much 💙[Report This]
