Nice ending, and so glad there is a sequel! I knew that Galen wasn’t bad…he just needed some advice, lol. So glad that Buffy was able to find her way back to Spike, and interesting that they both got a glimpse of what could have happened.

and now? they get to enjoy each other…with leftover goo on their feet!

but, I beg you, please do NOT write a Giles/Angel sequel, rofl.

Author's Response on October 28, 2021 03:29pm

Thank you! Yes, Galen wasn't bad, just really, really drained! haha! And yes, I'm hoping that glimpse into what MIGHT'VE happened will help them avoid some things in the AU as I'm sure I'll continue to come back to it over time.

yes, they will get to enjoy each other with goo ... what could possibly go wrong? LOL!

I've let the Giles and Angel thing die a natural death, it was funny and fun while it lasted, but not a good long term idea.

Thanks so much for reading. I hope you enjoy the VERY SMUTTY sequel. You'll see why I couldn't get it all in this one story.

You get the prize for the best, most natural, use of the Zimbabwe prompt! LOL. I loved seeing Buffy and Spike escape as birds, then Buffy save Spike from the sun. I loved their growing closer together and becoming merpeople. I feel bad that they are thwarted at every turn from having sex! Please let them get together in the last chapter! I suspect that all this time the chaos demon has been trying to find Spike for a “not evil” reason and can’t wait to find out what’s been up this whole time.

Another fantastic chapter! I loved the scene in the attic with the dress up and Spike being able to see not just himself but the two of them together in the mirror. Adding in a magic gramophone and ability to quick change let them have a bit of fun with it all. And, OMG, the scenes with Angel and Giles are priceless. I can’t unread that!

What a real trippy journey. I laughed so hard when Spike summoned bears. Would be good to know why he has a great fear of them. Also, Angel and Giles? I don't know whether to squeal because i like yaoi(boyxboy romance) or barf because it's Angel. Anyway, a nice end to this crazy fic.

I had some thoughts on Spike's fear of bears, which I might make into an update to this story in the future.  And, I know what you mean about Angel and Giles... I think I'll let it go, though... just too much bad blood under the bridge there for them to make it long term, I think.

 The absurdity is really making me laugh. I mean, first they turned to birds then they turned to mermaids then aliens. This fic is too much for my brain.

Also i really loved this - 

“Well, you could try unzipping those tails,” Minerva suggested placidly.

“Zippers? There aren’t any zip—” Buffy stopped talking, her eyes going wide as her fingers closed over the pull of a zipper at the back of Spike’s tail.  “There’s a zipper!”

Mermaid with a zipper tail, I did not see that coming. 

This fic is really hilarious and once again thank you for sharing it.

You know, you seem to have an unnatural fixation with my ass - Ass, tits. He's just obsessed with you. I am really enjoying this fic.

I have been laughing nonstop with this fic. I love it. I really felt bad that the two of them didn't end up getting together because the demon and Ethan found them. But more will come.

Loved the first chapter so far. I enjoyed Spike and Buffy's banter, as usual. And for a moment, I really thought you meant Carmen Sandiego, the Netflix cartoon. But I did a quick search and found that there was another one that aired like in 1985, so yeah. I nearly missed that reference. 

I did laugh when Spike tried to compliment Buffy but making it sound that he wanted to eat her(both in a literal sense and in a sexual sense). Buffy's come back to that was also epic: You need to find a point, or you’ll be getting mine.

“That’s bullshit! I dusted Lothos! I killed the Master—twice! I sent Angelus to hell. I put you in a damn wheelchair! I sent those Order of Taraka jerks packing! I’m totally brag-able! I’m a brag-a-thon! I’m the most brag-worthy Slayer you’ve ever met!”  - Funny that she found it offensive that he didn't want to kill her and practically bragged her resume to him. She is impressive but at the same time, she should just be happy that she isn't dead. 

The Chaos Demon showing up was not what I expected, even though you stated it in your summary. Because of Spuffy UST I forgot about him. It was funny how Spike is trying to save Buffy throughout this ordeal instead of just leaving her. I really am enjoying the story so far and I am only in the first chapter. Amazing. I cannot wait to see what happens next.

Author's Response on October 10, 2021 11:33am

Thanks so much! It will be a wild ride through the whole thing, so buckle up! And, yes, Spike just keeps trying to save Buffy despite all his protestations and threats. And Buffy being indignant that he wasn't trying to actively kill her, like she wasn't worth the trouble. 😂

My original idea had been to have the Chaos Demon hunting Spike down in order to accommodate any possible prompt, the addition of Ethan by the first prompt just made it all the crazier.

Hope you continue to enjoy it!

Thanks again!

I love the journey they were on... although it is unclear how much time they were on it, it seems like their whole relation came into focus and things started making complete sense.  I love a HEA.

Not Biles (which is Buffy and Giles and I also say gross to that) ... not sure what Giles and Angel are... Gangel? LOL! It was mostly for the funnies, though... who knows? Maybe they have more in common that you'd think? Dark pasts, a violent side, making up for past mistakes? IDK, I doubt those crazy kids would survive Angel moving to LA though.

The follow up has turned into a 4 chapter (thus far) SMUT FEST. Hopefully, I'll start posting it soon.

Damn what a story they'll have to tell if anyone will believe it! 

Spike is a quick thinker. The air fountain was handy as was the helpful shark. 

A cadre of shrimp, dressed up like the Gorton’s Fisherman in yellow raingear, jumped into the boats and began sailing toward the fight.  I can picture that so easily. And of course the shrimp boat song LOL.

Ethan and his Chaos friend... of course.

 Here we are, now. Entertain us.  I was expecting Smells Like Teen Spirit right there and there it is LOL.  I love all the songs and the mix!

Yup, Dru's Chaos boyfriend. I'm kind of glad he got a new diving helmet after Spike got his off to help Buffy. I kind of like Galen.

LOL mini-fireflites!!

I just LOVE all the fish and other ocean-dwelling friends they have there. “Good luck with milting her roe!” one of the barracudas yelled after him. So helpful and polite. 

Galen and Ethan had also made it out of the lost city, their forcefield back in place. But they were still being harassed by a yellow submarine piloted by beetles, a blue VW Beetle Cabriolet driven by a hippie-fish, a fleet of finned Fireflites piloted by mohawked teens, an armada of trawlers captained by shrimp in yellow slickers, a whole bed of blue oysters who were well out of their depth, a cadre of boxing crabs, and hermit crabs with fedoras and press badges. You know... I think I want to take up chaos magic if you get to have an experience like this. Too cool!

Spike blinked the dream away, the world slowly coming into focus. So he even dreamed into the future with the battle using the amulet!

“You really are quite the cretinous creature, are you not? May I suggest, before you embark on another adventure, that you crack a book?” Oh, Frederick! Giles would LOVE you!!!

Buffy dreams of the past and future too and it's the terrible canon storyline. They both got quite the heads up there.

Her wakening reminds me of Wizard of Oz. Rather sad. I want to smack Angel with his Spike hate.

Maybe she could find the dream again... figure out what was missing. Who was missing from the circle of concerned faces hovering around her.  I really hope she remembers.

YAY this time the right one is there when she opens her eyes. She gets the truth. 

Love the image of naked Spike carrying naked Buffy into the hospital. Oh, yeah, bet the gang LOVED that!

Buffy had learned so much over the last... however long it had been with Spike. She’d been reminded what it was like to live, not just survive, what it was like to laugh and dance, not just kill monsters in the dark, what it was like to truly love and be loved in return, what it was like have someone who was the quid to her quo, the tit to her tat, the gasoline for her fire.  YES. Angel brings anything BUT joy. Not a partner in any way either.

 if she might break—and maybe she would—but if she broke, it would be while dancing in a raging, magnificent fire, not huddled, despondent and alone, upon a barren tundra of ice. Love this so much.

Joyce might accept better than Buffy thinks. Glad she's resolved not to give the wrong message to him though.

So now the whole group is involved along with magic. Angel and Giles acting weird... hum... maybe that took an interesting turn. Nothing too perfectly happy though.

God! Spike and every bear possible... too funny. After their fish friends, I feel sorry for the salmon.

I love Buffy's reaction to Galen's situation.  “You can’t eat turtle brains and seahorses! That’s just wrong! Have you talked to seahorses and turtles? They’re people too! You need to just man up and learn to deal. If Dru’s too much for you, maybe you should find another way to satisfy her. LSD might help... or Peyote.” She looked at Spike. “Isn’t that what you said his, um, mucus was like?” Yup. Notice how UNhelpful Angel is being there too.

Love Buffy laying down the law to Angel and to Giles. 

Love Ethan joining Galen and Dru. That's a story begging to be told LOL.

Everything about them ‘fit’; their hearts, their minds, their spirits, their bodies.   Yup. Completely matched.

Love the images in the storyboards. The one with Angel and Giles was too funny. Angel actually looks like he's lusting after Giles there in that picture. Never put that thought to the scene but now I can't get rid of it.

This was a complete and total delight start to end. Not just a happy ending but deliriously so.

Thanks for this treasure.

I was SO HAPPY I'd put those in the last chapter! LOL!  The reason I don't post until I've finished writing (normally), I tend to write myself into corners! If those hadn't been there, a lot of the fun with Spike talking to Galen would've had to have been skipped, cos he would've needed to get one of those air helmets ASAP.

A cadre of shrimp, dressed up like the Gorton’s Fisherman in yellow raingear, jumped into the boats and began sailing toward the fight.  I can picture that so easily. And of course the shrimp boat song LOL.

Yay! I first was like, what are those hats called, (a sou'wester), how can I describe those... then, duh! Everyone (well, most everyone?) knows the Gorton's Fisherman! haha!

Here we are, now. Entertain us.  I was expecting Smells Like Teen Spirit right there and there it is LOL.  I love all the songs and the mix!

The only thing I could think of to represent that were the pom pom anemones.

Yup, Dru's Chaos boyfriend. I'm kind of glad he got a new diving helmet after Spike got his off to help Buffy. I kind of like Galen.

I was originally gonna make him and Ethan do a buddy-breathing thing like we had to learn in scuba class, but then I was like, nah-- magic replaceable helmets.

I just LOVE all the fish and other ocean-dwelling friends they have there. “Good luck with milting her roe!” one of the barracudas yelled after him. So helpful and polite. 

It was so much fun coming up with them all. CRAZY fun.

You know... I think I want to take up chaos magic if you get to have an experience like this. Too cool!

I know, right? I've had more than one person asked me if I was on drugs doing this. 😂🤷‍a92;a039;

So he even dreamed into the future with the battle using the amulet!

Buffy dreams of the past and future too and it's the terrible canon storyline. They both got quite the heads up there.

Yeah, these two will have a bit of a leg-up on the future with those dreams. So, when the final challenge came for HFN, I knew I couldn't have a bittersweet ending (well, honestly, these two had pretty much taken that option away anyway), and my muse just loves him some bittersweetness, so the dreams satisfied his craving for that. Also, I think seeing all that would help move Buffy along more quickly, get her out of her river of denial and get to that happy ending.

Oh, Frederick! Giles would LOVE you!!!

HE SO WOULD! They're like long lost brothers!

Her wakening reminds me of Wizard of Oz. Rather sad. I want to smack Angel with his Spike hate.

That was exactly what I was envisioning there. 

YES. Angel brings anything BUT joy. Not a partner in any way either.  if she might break—and maybe she would—but if she broke, it would be while dancing in a raging, magnificent fire, not huddled, despondent and alone, upon a barren tundra of ice. Love this so much.

Thank you! I really enjoyed that whole fire and ice references throughout this ... from the start with Spike telling her Angel was turning her to ice , all the way to her dreams of 'the future' or a possible future, and how she was, in fact, turned to ice and wanting to find the fire again.  That wasn't planned , well not beyond that first song, but I loved how it carried through.

So now the whole group is involved along with magic. Angel and Giles acting weird... hum... maybe that took an interesting turn. Nothing too perfectly happy though.

LOL! Nope, nothing too happy for Angel!

God! Spike and every bear possible... too funny. After their fish friends, I feel sorry for the salmon.

I know, right? maybe I could've done honey combs or something ... but no bees..  Poor salmon!

Yup. Notice how UNhelpful Angel is being there too

The most unhelpful 'friend' she's ever had! 

Love Buffy laying down the law to Angel and to Giles. 

Yes! so satisfying! 

Love Ethan joining Galen and Dru. That's a story begging to be told LOL.

ROFL!! That would be another wild ride, with pixies!

Love the images in the storyboards. The one with Angel and Giles was too funny. Angel actually looks like he's lusting after Giles there in that picture. Never put that thought to the scene but now I can't get rid of it.

I know, right??? I was searching for Angel and Giles in the same shot and that one came up and OH MY GOD! It totally looks like he's in lust.

This was a complete and total delight start to end. Not just a happy ending but deliriously so.

Aw, yay! Thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. It was a HOOT to write, also incredibly hard to just let go and write like you're on Chaos magic, but so rewarding when it all comes together like this.

Giles and Angel 🤣 and then chaosed up Ethan going on about hedone and his arse being sore for a week 🤣🤣

“Fuck, Buffy... could spew my milt all over your roe right here.”

Ok, that right there. You’ve just made the whole fic there. Bahaha good luck milting her roe, let us know how it goes! *snicker snort snort*

Oh this was all a chaotic dream of a fic, so very very funny!

The things you read in fics! who would've ever predicted that line??

Oh this was all a chaotic dream of a fic, so very very funny!

 Thank you so much! So glad you enjoyed it and got some laughs! It was a hoot (and a bit of a nightmare) to write! I both want to write another one like it immediately and never do any such thing again!

Thank you again for all your comments and ongoing support! Love!!

Nice! Love it! So creative with the surrounding. :) torpedo, desoto, submarines.... Oh my. Where do you get all these ideas. Nice! 

 

That was a thing? Was that on Professor Spike’s lesson plan? She swallowed, feeling her heartbeat quicken and heat begin to flare deep in her belly at the thought of Spike touching her... there. She shook her head, refocusing. “Yeah, do that. And stop eating turtles and seahorses!”  she ordered.

 

I don't think Buffy could eat any seafood anymore after making some friends with sea lives. At least, she is going to learn a lot from Prof. Spike. :)

I have NO IDEA! Honestly, they just pop out of my brain and, like, oh, okay, that will work... LOL!

Yeah, I have a feeling she's gonna be avoiding sushi bars and fish and chips!  And, yeah, I think she is going to be learning A LOT from Prof. Spike!

Thanks so much for reading and stopping in with such lovely comments! I appreciate it so much.

Thank you for your fics. I hate you for making me spending hours of reading your fics and re-reading your fics including the old ones. LOL. Prof Spike syllabus for Buffy. No prior courses required and she just need to show up :)  

Author's Response on August 14, 2021 11:16am

haha! Yes, she just needs to show up! He'll help her with all the 'homework'! I'm working on that right now...the one chapter has turned into about 4, of course! LOL! Hopefully will have all the smutty goodness (and that is mostly what it is, almost no plot) ready to post next week.

Thanks again for all your support! You rock!

Spike lost BOTH his parents to consumption??? (Or... you know... his mother WOULD have been lost to consumption) Oh my poor baby...

Oop, here's the favorite line: Well, not so much of a plan as an idea... a glimmer of an idea... a notion, you might say. That's somehow both such a Spike AND Buffy line to say... proving they just have so much in common.

I love that bit where just... every word that felll out of Spike's mouth became something literal! Like if you're texting on an iphone and emojis are suggested to you based on what you're saying... ugh that was SO clever and SO fun to read! Especially with the words then being snatched up by something just as random. I guess when a Chaos Demon is standing right there you're just gonna get the weirdest of the weird, no holds barred.

To be honest, based on how nice the Chaos Demon in Fool for Love seemed to be, I might have known Galen was the same one.

Oh my gosh I was so afraid she'd actually forgotten when she woke up in the hospital there don't DO that to me!!! Spike wouldn't have been able to handlle it if she'd forgotten!

Spike pulled his hand from hers and slid across the seat, turning his face away to watch the world go by. They’d been seeing strange sights pop up as they drove, and he seemed intent on watching for more mole hills growing into mountain lions which were then chased down and devoured by white, fluffy, stuffed bunnies. He's so TOUCHY and I get it, really, every time Spike is insecure about Buffy's feelings I 1000% get it, but also I just want to smack his head and love all over him every time he is because he's just... so incredibly delicate in that sense. (Also I love the mole hill into mountain lion bit-- so very symbolic!)

And yep, Galen was very polite and sincere in the end... though it's a good thing Spike had moved on and was in love with Buffy by the time they eventually talked, because otherwise, that would have been in very poor taste on Galen's part.

Definitely loved this ride but oooh I'm definitely going to miss the chaos!! heart

It was so contagious, it easily wiped out whole families. weep

haha! Yay! Glad you liked that one! And, yeah, it could've easily been a Buffy line.

I had a lot of fun with that, trying to think what Spike would say and what a chaotic world would make of it. Then what kind of sea creature would come and jump in. So glad you liked it!

To be honest, based on how nice the Chaos Demon in Fool for Love seemed to be, I might have known Galen was the same one.

Yeah, he did seem pretty nice, and he didn't mean to cause so much trouble for them here... Bad Ethan! 

Oh my gosh I was so afraid she'd actually forgotten when she woke up in the hospital there don't DO that to me!!! Spike wouldn't have been able to handlle it if she'd forgotten!

When my bittersweet ending was officially taken away with the challenge, I had to do something a little evil to keep my muse happy. He says: Sorry, not sorry. devil

(Also I love the mole hill into mountain lion bit-- so very symbolic!)

He really is... his heart is so tender, and he's had it broken so much by Dru, it's hard for him to trust, but Buffy will keep assuring him.

And yep, Galen was very polite and sincere in the end... though it's a good thing Spike had moved on and was in love with Buffy by the time they eventually talked, because otherwise, that would have been in very poor taste on Galen's part.

yes, that's true... I guess Galen figured the breakup was mutual... who knows what Dru told him -- perhaps told him that Spike was in love with the Slayer, since she knew before he did.

Definitely loved this ride but oooh I'm definitely going to miss the chaos!! heart

Thanks so much! It was honestly both fun as heck and frustrating as heck to write this.  It's fun to not have to live in the 'rules' though and just let your imagination run wild.

Thanks for reading and stopping in. Love hearing from you!

Incredibile viaggio fantasy sembrava un po'. "Alice nel paese delle meraviglie " ma dieci volte più pericoloso! E Buffy e Spike perfettamente in sintonia per affrontare tutto ! anche i fidanzati sbagliati!

Author's Response on August 08, 2021 03:53pm

google translate: Amazing fantasy trip seemed a bit. "Alice in Wonderland" but ten times more dangerous! 
And Buffy and Spike perfectly in tune to face it all! even the wrong boyfriends!


Yes! A lot of Alice in Wonderland and Wizard of Oz and just whatever else came to mind!
But, yep, Buffy and Spike handled it like champs! Even the strange bedfellows.

So glad you enjoyed it! Thanks so much for reading and stopping in! Love hearing from you.

“So, who’s this altruistic hero-type you’re calling?” he asked, following her.

“Mom.” Aw, that's perfect.

I couldn't help laughing at the reason why the chaos demon was so very determined to talk to Spike!

They worked well together, and she knew he’d be by her side as she faced whatever the next big bad was, and the one after that. He loved her, he believed her when she declared her love for him, and she knew, without a doubt in her heart, that he wouldn’t betray her.

And they lived happily ever after..... heartshug

<Happy sigh>

Who else? haha! 

I couldn't help laughing at the reason why the chaos demon was so very determined to talk to Spike!

Yay! My original plan was for him to be coming to have Spike take her back (for basically the same reason), but it worked out better this way, with Ethan and the HEA, this was perfect. 

And they lived happily ever after..... heartshug

Yes! completely! 

Thanks so much for reading and stopping in, Gillie! Always love hearing your thoughts!
