If I recall correctly, Angel is in Pylea already. At least according to canon. So unless they end up drawing things out much longer, he’s not gonna be helping. He should have stayed though, when she asked him. But apparently it was one of those questions you mostly ask because you think you already know the answer, not because you actually mean that there’s a choice.
I’m already curious as to who you’re going to have come helping. Did I see right, that you mentioned D’Hoffryn in your list of characters... now that could be interesting. I hope that means that they listen more to Anya too.
Such a sweet scene between Buffy and Spike. The really should have taken care of him after what he did. But it seems likely that they were focused on other stuff, recceven in your nicer version of the Scoobies. And she’s right, he’s neither useless nor crippled, he’s definitely a warrior to be recognised.[Report This]
It always irritated me how Angel never helped out in s5 when Buffy needed it the most. I liked you showing how he abandoned Buffy. Sounds like Buffy and Spike are on their way to the start of a great partnership. Once they work together there’s nothing they can’t accomplish. Thanks for sharing![Report This]
A new exciting story, yay!! Good to see some sense in Buffy, that was a big sacrifice and it should carry some weight with the Scooby's. Thank you for writing, it's always a treat getting a new story to follow! Happy autumn and may the leaves fall in twirling motion around you instead of right on your head.[Report This]
Oh Pfeifferpack.. I love what you are doing here. I do wish that Soike had taken Buffy up on her offer to move in with her. He will heal surelt" but lije she said he is her best warrior. He needs to be with her and Dawn. Maybe he will change his mind. I can't wait for the next chapter.[Report This]
This is a series of completely logical reasons why they shouldn't have just dropped him back at the crypt!
I'm still of the mind that in this narration of yours he should have been removed to some other place, but I'm pretty confident that there will be a very good reason to have him by himself!
I feel strange reading the beginning of this new story while I still want to read the rest of the previous one... but it's challenge month, if I can't produce I have to partecipate with comments! Love the beginning, sooner or later I'll have the pleasure to read it all[Report This]
Angel really isn't the most helpful person, good to see that Buffy is starting to realize that and that Xander pointed that out too. Another good thing is Buffy finally thinking about the dangers to Spike and that he deserve some good treatment. Spike himself is acting nice and friendly which makes things easier.[Report This]
Softhearted Spike, of course he welcomes and forgives - he always forgives Buffy and the Scoobs, giving them all second, third and more chances, while they barely ever gave an inch in their grudges against him. He wants so much to be a part of them, to belong. So gratifying to read this fic where Buffy has an epiphany concerning Spike and treats him more like a hero-white-hat should = with humanity and decency.[Report This]
Oh, this has such lovely potential!! It's going to be a favorite.
I like Xander getting to the root of the Angel mess straightaway and Buffy not wasting time defending him. Poor Buffy doesn't give herself much credit for all she deals with, or for how hard it is to function after losing a parent or loved one. I am so loving the way she handled Spike once she "woke up" to the situation, and your forgiving and sweetly playful Spike is a treat to read. Sighs and gushiness. MORE!
Sorry, did that sound demanding? It was, a bit ;)
I have the first three chapters written at least so I have a wee buffer if I post weekly.
Thank you! So glad you like the opening and see the potential.
I love the touch of guilt she has when knocking at the door. Everyone has treated him horribly, and it took almost losing him for Buffy to even realize how badly she's been treating him.
Starving, lonely Spike is heartbreaking, and he takes it in stride. It makes you wonder how often this has happened to him. I can't imagine Dru always being reliable if they got scraped up in a fight.
A bit of hope at the end, yay!
Yeah, I hated how he was just dumped like garbage when they should have considered he was in danger and not able to defend himself.
I don't think anyone did much taking care of him over the years actually.
Thank you for reading, liking and commenting.
I have Eye of Eleos all lined up to read after work. Your love for these characters shines through so brightly!
Thank you! Nothing could please me more than that my love for the characters comes through clealy. Hope you enjoy Eye of Eleos. It does update weekly.
