I loved this story. The premise was creative and I loved watching Spuffy figure out through trial and error how to break the spell. Your 1950s world was so easy to picture because you included all the right details for it to feel real but also still feel like a Mayor Wilkins spell. My goodness, the Offering was creepy. I especially loved the colors in 1950s land; I kept wondering if baby blue had something to do with the spell! ðŸ˜‚ Also, the story banner is one of the best I’ve ever seen. I don’t know how you 1950s-ified everyone, but it’s really cool. Thanks so much for sharing this fic with us.[Report This]
I loved this! The hearts getting ripped out was just so brutal and it happened sooo many times. They grew close by having to work together and built a friendship first. It was a great story in a compelling setting.[Report This]
Ooh, this was so good. I love the whole premise and everything you did with it! OF COURSE the Mayor would send them to Pleasantville! Pleasantville via The Lottery, with a sex-demon. Loved it every step of the way.[Report This]
nice story! lots of twists and turns (not to say twist and shout wink wink nudge nudge) i wanted to comment before but i was always like, ah one more chapter then i’ll comment….then one more….and here we are ðŸ˜†
So glad you liked it! :)
Oh I loved this! Spike and Buffy gradually growing to trust and have feelings for each other was so sweet. And I liked that the way they solved the time loop was by working with the Scoobies - that felt very true to the show. Plus all the Spuffy kissing was delicious![Report This]
Ahh, so glad the Scoobies didn't reset. That definitely makes everything easier.
And kudos to Riley for being not-a-dick. As much as I hate him, I do appreciate stories that don't exaggerate his awfulness. He has plenty of awful to go around without making it cartoony. I even managed to feel a teeny bit bad for him when Buffy revealed she and Spike had made out to lure out the demon...though not too bad because it was in service of world saveage. We just won't talk about what happened later.
Hoping Buffy gets out of denial soon. I want more Spuffy smoochies![Report This]
Ooh, YES BUFFY RILEY BREAKUP! And great advice from Willow, who could really understand what Buffy was going through (even if she didn't get the who of all of this).
How's the Offering going to go with all the Scoobies awake?? And if Spuffy bites the dust again, will the Scoobies go back under? God, I hope not.[Report This]
Ooh, was so hoping Buffy would just dump Riley's ass. And while, yes, technically she did have sex with Spike and was the cheater, circumstances were mitigating... or maybe I just really want that to happen again and am making excuses.[Report This]
I really must commend you on this truly horrific spell you've concocted. Among the many things it reminds me of, some I've mentioned, Midsommar comes to mind. All horrific but bright and cherry, and made worse because of it.
And yeah, Buffy, you're totally kinda dating Spike at this point.[Report This]
Oh, I had a feeling it would be them. But Wilkins could've easily tormented Buffy by making her watch her friends die too, so...
Ugh, what a mess.
Though I do appreciate her Riley musings. A lot. And good for her.[Report This]
Probably because I just watched it, but this is reminding me of that episode of SPN where Gabriel traps Dean in a loop where he dies on repeat. Only this is better because it's Spuffy.
I love Spike realizing that he didn't enjoy seeing Buffy die. 🥰[Report This]
