Great story, really enjoyed seeing the Giles/Spike relationship develop.

Author's Response on July 29, 2021 03:42pm

Hey, thank you! I feel like we all deserved a lot more Spike/Fyarl Giles from canon, so I’m glad you enjoyed this :)

This whole story was laugh out loud funny and in-character. I feel like I just watched an extended version on a DVD. Thanks for sharing!

I am just now getting to the last chapter. I have to say this was one of the funner first I've read in a while. Exceptionally crafted. I loved it.

Ah, thank you! I’ve really been enjoying In Death That I May Live (I have to apologize for lurking, I’m trying to get better about commenting). I think your writing is wonderful, so this comment means a lot.<3

This has to be the best I've read during the pandemic. In fact, I've already read it twice, and I decided to start commenting again. Thank you so much for this fun, gripping adventure.The character voices were fantastic, really rang true for me, and it was like visiting all those fancy (or not fancy) places. Loved the plot! A story I will keep re-reading when I need a pick me up heartheartscheers

Oh geez, this is an unbelievably nice comment! I have certain fics that I re-read that make me happy, and that I’ve actually written one myself that does that for someone else? This gives me all the warm fuzzies, thank you :)

I’m glad you enjoyed this story so much, thanks!

There may be a short-ish “what happens next” that I may have started writing, but it will have to wait for me to finish my April challenge fics first. Probably.

I love them trying to explain Spike interactions/role without using the word vampire. Loved Riley getting nothing but the wrong idea. 

Author's Response on April 12, 2021 10:24am

:) To be fair, Spike is kind of hard to explain even with ‘vampire’. And I think given the opportunity, Riley will always come to the wrong conclusion...

Thanks for giving this fic a try, and I’m glad you’re enjoying it so far!

I've been a slack commenter sorry, but this was soo good! Loved it so much, the wordplay and hilarity and that deliciously zany buffyverseness that rarely gets caught in text, so damn good 💘

KROQ - I will forever love this station I have never heard and was excite to see it here, because the 'Live on KROQ' version of Rebel Yell is my equal favourite song ever 💘

It wasn’t Spike’s fault that one of the front speakers had blown when he’d cranked the intro to Orgy’s cover of “Blue Monday”. - Well who could resist cranking that up?

Loving this all so much! 💙

Author's Response on March 14, 2021 10:59am

LOL! So, I lived in the LA area for a few years in the early oughts, and I don’t think I can overstate just how much time I spent listening to KROQ while sitting in traffic. But I’d never heard the acoustic version of Rebel Yell, so thank you for that...an excellent start to my day :)

I really love trying to decide what music Spike would dig and what he’d think was awful. (Usually I just go with what I like) (probably everyone does this).

I’m so glad you’re enjoying this!!

I want to thank you for being the person to laugh at that joke! And you know Spike’s the kind of person to replay things in his head and think ‘oh damn, THAT’S what I should’ve said’. :)

Yes, Hearst Castle is an actual place (also I don’t think my imagination is that good to have made it up?) and definitely worth visiting once visiting places is also a real thing again. Google the indoor pool though, it’s freaking gorgeous! :)

And chin up, Giles, French cars are very sexy in this Peugeot owner's opinion💘😄

 

Author's Response on March 13, 2021 09:13am

Hey cool, thanks for making this little detour :)

I dated someone who had the same model Citroen as Giles, so Spike’s antipathy is based purely on my personal experiences (and I will admit there is a Citroen, the SM, which is sexy AF. It has a Maserati engine). I’m sure your Peugeot is lovely!

There's more than one castle in California period. I've been to the one on Lake Tahoe and the one in Napa as well.

Author's Response on February 24, 2021 12:37pm

Well sure. I think there’s more than one in Napa even, at least the last time I was there in the mid-oughts. This is more in the vein of a Family Feud question, ‘name a castle in California.’ The number one answer will be Disneyland, and the far distant number two will be Hearst Castle. (Or, I don’t know if you watch sports at all, but Ohio State is always referred to as THE Ohio State by players who went there as a point of pride. Yes, there are lots of castles, but not all of them have the same cultural impact.)

Thank you for reading! :)

JustWriter Replied on February 27, 2021 11:31am

I'd wager that the woman who commissioned Vikingsholm, in Lake Tahoe, had an amazing cultural impact as well: Mrs. Lora Josephine Knight funded most of the money for the Spirt of St. Louis trip, being personal friends with the pilot; she also funded some of the first scholarships for women going to college; she also formed an amazing impression on a little girl, who would grow up to be the first female park ranger. Her legacy still stands and I highly recommend you visit the castle she built. It's not as tacky or gaudy as Hearst's castle, even if she gave lots of money to the Christian Scientist cult (which is neither Christian, nor Scientific, but behaviorists).

Still, so much fun! Great characters and banter. I especially like the use of the forgetting spell in this chapter. It’s neat to have it in a totally different context so it’s all new and fresh, and putting it during the fyarl incident adds new and delicious potential for confusion.

 

Author's Response on February 22, 2021 10:59am

Thank you! I’m glad you’re having fun with this :)

I really wanted to do Tabula Rasa with Riley, in a setting that was completely neutral to see what would happen and what conclusions everyone would jump to. I often wonder if Spike hadn’t woken up in Randy’s suit in canon how it would’ve been different.

Thank you so much for reading this!!

I am enjoying reading this so much! I visited Hearst Castle as an inquisitive pre-teen and I recall the pools and theater vividly. Ann Margaret might have likes Spike and Dru; at least, her film persona would have. You ever see her in The Flinstones as Ann Margrock, in Viva Rock Vegas, or in Bye Bye Birdie? I don't much wish to see her in State Fair, as I have an affection for its first iteration. Buffy mistaking Spike for an unliving, Greek statue, in a waking dream, is hilarious. That pool was my favorite. I completely agree that bits of the place were appropriated; the other pool that you see at the beginning of the tour has Greek columns. Even though Hearst bought them fairly, it seems ooky that he just had to have them to decorate his pool, instead of simply getting new marble to fashion into a similar shape.

Author's Response on February 20, 2021 07:18pm

I’m so glad you’re enjoying this fic! I think maybe you’re the first person who’s read this who’s actually been to Hearst Castle...it’s a pretty neat place :) The indoor pool and the movie theater definitely are memorable.

I know who Ann Margaret is, but I don’t know if I’ve seen anything she’s been in. I love imagining Spike and Dru living through the golden age of Hollywood, though. :)

I think there are people who want to lionize Hearst, and at the other end people who want to vilify him, so the truth is probably somewhere in the middle. From what I saw, Hearst kept very detailed records of everything he’d acquired for his castle, all the records from the auction houses, etc, so it’s not like he necessarily stole them outright, but then, a lot of stuff ends up at auction that maybe shouldn’t. The outdoor pool is also gorgeous, though. And I wasn’t really able to work it into the fic too well, but Julia Morgan, the architect, was amazing.

Thank you so much for reading this!

You're welcome! Riley would be a fascinating character under a lot of possible circumstances - like you said, he volunteered, joining the military of his own free will. After he was recruited for the Initiative, and found the truth of the world he lived in, he stayed with it rather than turning away. It's a solid backstory that the show didn't do enough with. Your contrasting it to Buffy is the kind of thing which has me fantasizing about them 15 years down the road with a friendly, professional working relationship, joking about bad coffee with no sexual tension, just good vibes.

When I think about how badly suited he was as a romantic partner to Buffy - neither of them is much of a talker, both of them happy to coast, by the time they figured out they weren't well suited for each other they were too invested in the idea of the relationship to be willing to break up - it makes me sad for both of them.

Author's Response on February 15, 2021 01:43pm

All the Psych majors I knew in college chose Psych because they wanted to work through their own issues first and foremost. Riley is presented as a Joe Normal, but there’s got to be a reason he picked Psych in my mind. The most obvious explanation is he had a family member with PTSD and so picked both Psych and the military with hopes of helping, but there’s probably more to it than that. His perception that Buffy didn’t love him at the beginning of S5, coupled with Buffy not trusting anyone to know about Dawn were killing blows to their relationship. But yeah, I can actually see them all 15 years in the future, and Riley ending up being Spike and Buffy’s couples’ therapist and not being terrible at it.

Cosmic Tuesdays Replied on February 25, 2021 05:58pm

My God, you're right. He has enough training in psychology, plus the right balance of familiarity and distance to get a good assessment of the two of them. Now I deeply want to read that fic.

It's a good want, I assure you.
