I loved it! Buffy calling Riley out on everything and the ending made me laugh out loud haha. That’s just so in character haha. Great read.

This was an episode I had wanted to fix forever, so I really enjoyed making Buffy not fall for Riley's crap and calling him out on all of it. I'm so happy you think it's all in character.

What a lovely fix-it fic and such a creative response to the challenge! I really liked how you handled the time travel — demon, Buffys  merging consciousnesses. I’m happy every time Spuffy gets a chance at a healthy future. Hooray! 

That Christmas tree is awesome. 

Author's Response on August 17, 2022 03:27pm

Yay! I’m so happy you enjoyed it.

When I saw the prompt was a fix it, I knew it would have to be this one, even though I considered others first. Because really, that episode was in dire need of fixing.

I’m glad you liked the way I did the time travel. I didn’t want to end up with a Buffy or a Spike being left alone anywhere, so this seemed the way to do it.

This was beautiful! Buffy’s thoughts about if this was her Spike or not and then telling him he didn’t need the soul was so real. And Spike going and getting the soul anyway! It’s so him. He really would do anything to be the man he thinks she deserves. And I loved his drawing of Angel on the tree top! Lol! Just wonderful. Thank you for writing and sharing!

Author's Response on May 12, 2022 10:30pm

Thank you! I'm so happy you enjoyed it. 

I felt like a Post-series!Buffy would be torn about soulless Spike from this period, but in the end, see all the things she wasn't able to see herself in the middle of her depression. And yes, isn't it just Spike to go ahead and get the soul anyway? After all, if that's what he had already done in another reality, he wouldn't want to be any less for Buffy than his other self had been.

Haha, I'm glad you appreciated Spike's taste in decorating the tree.

all_choseny commented on One shot on January 22, 2022 05:33pm Liked

THIS is absolutely everything! And I'm not being hyperbolic at all. I've read several fics where Buffy has gone back in time to this very moment, and this is the first fic that I've read that did everything I wanted it to do! And that's no shade to anyone else.

One of the things that has always bothered me about this episode was how smug Riley appeared. He knew he had a wife, yet he filtered with Buffy. And I believe he did that on purpose. I'm so, so, glad that Buffy called him on his B.S. in this fic. And it was so refreshing to see her not swoon over him with that added maturity from 2006. The special care you put into hitting all those details definitely made this fic an enjoyable read for me. 

I'm so glad that Buffy was able to explain everything to Spike, and although she had to live through a lot of the same traumas, the hindsight she gained created satisfying results for everyone. Even Tara got to live! 

And you managed to make this a Christmas fic at the end. Just awesome! And they should definitely use the angel drawing at the top of the tree. Wonderful, wonderful fic! This is going in my favorites. Thanks for sharing! 

Author's Response on February 24, 2022 11:15am

As you Were always bothered me for so many reasons. One of them is definitely Riley's smugness and obvious flirting. it almost seems as if he's trying to lure Buffy into embarrassing herself. it would, of course, have been even better had she never swooned over him, but the next best thing was definitely to get her to call him on his manipulative BS. I'm glad it was as satisfying to read as it was to write. 

And yeah, I figured that since she'd done it all before, she would do her best to save Tara too, not just because Tara is worth saving (she absolutely is) but also considering the horrible consequences following her death in canon. 

I'm so pleased and honoured that you liked my fic that much.heartshearts

Thank you for fixing that wreck of an episode! I’m a sucker for time travel fics where a well adjusted and confident Buffy goes back and wants/loves Spike. And putting Riley in his place at the same time is just icing on the cake! Though you’ve made a point of showing the downside to fixing the past….poor Dawn has been traumatized by Spuffy loving! Lol. 

Author's Response on February 24, 2022 11:17am

Haha, yeah, well, Dawn will just have to live with Buffy and Spike having loud obnoxious sex in the room next door - I'm sure she'd prefer it to what really happened in canonwink

I love time travel fix-it stories. I always felt that the whole survolte demon was a set up from Riley. 
happy the time travel had so many positive outcomes, Spuffy Love, no seeing red, Spike getting his soul for himself with Buffy helping him through the guilt trauma and the First’s trigger. Tara and Anya alive, no Ilyria plot.

Author's Response on February 24, 2022 11:21am

The Suvvolte demon part was so strange and seemed like a setup in so many ways. I didn't want to elaborate too much on that part in the fic, though. Partly due to the limited word count, and also because I don't really think it matters in the end. What's important is that whatever Riley planned didn't work and Spuffy got together. 

I'm glad you liked the outcomes of this timetravel fic. I'm especially pleased you noticed that I saved Fred too, yay!

Wow! Just... Wow! What a great fic!

I don't like time-travelling (who would say because I've read a bunch of them) but because it confuses me. And I also don't like it when Buffy finds out about Spike being alive after he's died again in the battle with Angel, but I LOVED how you turned things. 

I think that choosing "As we were" was the perfect choice. How many things are wrong in that episode that went unanswered? And you just took them all and fixed them... THANK YOU 😂 

I liked that even acknowledging the faults in Riley's behavior they still managed to stay friendly. Obviously keeping Anya and Tara alive is always a plus, and you even saved Fred. 

Buffy finally realizing all the good Spike did in season 5 and during her death and then believing her and still going after his soul just to make sure felt awesome. Of course, the sex was hot and loving, can't ask for more!

👏👏👏 Congrats and thanks for writing it and sharing.

Author's Response on February 24, 2022 11:34am

I'm so pleased to have written something you like even though you dislike two of the tropes I've built this fic on.

I swear there are not a lot of eps that need fixing more than AYW. I simply had to choose that one. I'm glad you enjoyed how I fixed things - and that you noticed that I saved Fred too. And yes, I had to make him go get the soul anyway. I feel like that's such an important part of Spike's character arc, that I wouldn't want to steal it from him. This was probably a better way for him than in canon.

Thank you so much for this amazing commenthearts

Ah, this was a totally delightful fic! I love how you had Future!Buffy subtly unravel whatever-the-fuck Real key was up to. Getting fun his self esteem jollies? Trying to make himself into the big man? Who knows (who cares?)? As You Were was utterly frustrating, and you’ve teased it out nicely and fixed it without going too far into the background.
All that PLUS you managed to save Fred, Tara and Anya, and the magnificent Angel atop the tree is pretty much perfect. Maaaybe Giles is now a better version than he was in the original timeline? Maybe Buffy’s relationship with Faith is improved? I’m curious whatever happened to Future!Kennedy, did she clip out of existence or is it a bifurcation in the timeline? I can hope she blipped out. Heck, maybe this version never becomes a slayer, just remains a potential. Or heck, maybe she was killed in the hellmouth assault. Well, I can always dream 🤣

Anyway, beautifully done, this is a lovely SS gift! heartheartheart

Author's Response on February 24, 2022 11:56am

As you Were is such a frustrating ep. Everything about the Suvvolte demons and Riley seems so suspicious, but I didn't want to dive too deep into what his plans were, because that wasn't the point - the point was to show that something was off and Buffy knew it. And to get Spuffy together, obviously. I am so happy you noticed that strategy and agree with it. Also, yay! - You noticed I saved Fred too - not everyone didhearts

I like to think that they're all better versions of themselves than in the original timeline. Being told the very real consequences of your actions must do something to a person. For example, I can't imagine this Giles would try to kill Spike in season 7 when Buffy tells him what happened last time. Seeing as Buffy and Faith worked together in the future, I'm sure Buffy would do what she could to repair that relationship as soon as possible.

As for future Kennedy, I think she's simply stuck in the future. Also, I don't think this timeline's version of her will ever become a Slayer. I deliberately left it out of the fic, because I'm sure people have different opinions about it, but I imagine that Buffy wouldn't activate all the slayers again. They weren't the ones who took out the Turok-han anyway, and honestly that move kind of robbed the childhood from thousands of girls. Some of them probably not ready or fit to be Slayers. But that's just bonus info, solely to you. wink

Thank you! I'm so happy you enjoyed itflowers

Oh this was just wonderful! If ever there was an episode that needed fixing, it was As You Were. I'm so happy that Buffy got the chance to do it over, to not get caught up in Riley's bullshit this time, and most importantly to let Spike know that he was loved. I love that he went to get his soul through his own choice and also that you saved lovely Tara! It was all just so perfect!

OMG, this story was perfect!! squeeI really loved how at the beginning when Buffy and Riley met, Buffy thought of all the things from the first time that didn't make any sense whatsoever! I've read many attempts of fixing this episode, but I can honestly say this is the best heart

“Do you need me to get a soul? Do I have to…?” He trailed off, but the question was clear. “I’ll do it if you want me to. To be what you need. To be the kind of person who’d never…” He shook his head and looked heavenwards. - this part actually made me cry, it reminded me of Spike's speech in the church in Beneath You, and it's so perfect, and Buffy's answer is even more perfect hug (I also want to give you a round of applause for how well you wrote Buffy, she sounded totally in character the whole time)

pfeifferpack commented on One shot on December 27, 2021 11:55am Liked

Better the door than the man… probably.  The way I felt about Giles by the end of S7, I'd vote the man not the door.

“All things considered, it’s far better than if she’d ended up in the past, though. Who knows what changes she’d have inadvertently made to our timeline, had she merged with her past self.” Yeah, I can imagine what kinds of fun things Kennedy might decide needed changing. Much better the future. Cool with the merging with the past self though. MUCH better than having two of a person... any person not just Kennedy but that would BE a hell dimension LOL. 

You have to trust me on this, Buffy Um... not after the last several betrayals. I'm thinking no.

I can SO easily see Giles withholding the news that Spike was back even if Spike HADN'T told Andrew to keep it quiet. 

Good list of just the top reasons from Buffy POV. Giles obviously sees no wrong in anything he's done. He is pompous and as dreadful as he was beginning to become by the time they went into that battle in SD.  He should count his blessings that Buffy hasn't just walked off and left it to him at this point.

Love her words to Vi. Of course Giles will be blaming Buffy as if she should have let a child be drawn into the portal! He was okay when it would have been Xander after all.

it didn’t paralyse her as it had back then. It was more like a fog clouding the back of her mind, something she could easily push aside. She felt her past consciousness relax and give in to the sensation of having someone stronger and in a better place share her space. Oh, thank God she's got the wheel! S6 Buffy needed someone else to move in and take charge. 

LOTS of possibilities for what she can do from here on out. I'll just bet she's already thought of more than a few.

The episode MOST in need of fixing, indeed! SO many plot holes, so many wrong things.

we’ve been tracking it to Sunnydale There's one there. If Suvoltes lay a path of destruction where they go... where was this infamous path from Central America to Sunnydale? I would have thought there would have been some mention of it before Riley happened to know just where to find Buffy for "help". Yeah, right. Does not pass the sniff test at all.

You just know that in canon she lost her job for walking out. The job she needed badly. Didn't make her a good candidate for another job after either. This is one reason no Slayer should have to work for a living. ALWAYS the possibility of having to leave with no notice for Slaying reasons. The best reason in the world that the Council should have been paying her expenses.

Buffy needs to remember what THIS Spike already did and how he feels. This Spike loves her too even if a bit more selfishly (yet not totally). This Spike took torture for her. He took care of Dawn and her friends while she was dead. He was her friend before they got physical. Did he need his soul, not for her, but for him to be whole? Would she have to go through it all again?  The soul sped his journey up but he was on it already. 

I love that she's noticing things about Riley that night that she passed on before. His flirting. His keeping the truths to himself. All that time with the flirting could have been spent telling her about Sam. He is just like Angel except for his diet.

I so hated how "kill the fatted calf" the gang acted towards Riley. I just assumed she never told them WHY they broke up, about the vamp ho's. They all acted like he was Captain America returned to fight for truth, justice, the American way, and hey, so what if he married immediately after dumping Buffy. She should have run faster!

That story is plausible and the only one I accept if going with the "Spike wasn't setup but actually had the eggs to sell" way of looking at the episode. It works and fits his determination to get money for Buffy. Nicely done.

The location alone was a testament to how soon he’d meant to get rid of them. He had known Buffy was working tonight. Had probably expected to hand them over before she came around next.  Nicely explaining why he had them in a place where Buffy could be expected at any time unannounced. Her original work schedule did make it possible if it was only that night he planned to keep the eggs.

I love how you changed up that whole situation with not only the eggs but Riley too. 

He was her Spike, and whatever happened from now, it wouldn’t be the same. It would be better. And she's found her footing. She sees that any changes are minimal. It's still her man...er... vampire.

She should let Angel wear the damned amulet next time especially since the idiot only went on to create another apocalypse the next year!

Grrrr that panther crawl up her body is SO hot (I always felt bad we only got to see him do that with Harm in canon). Muy Caliente.

THAT is how she should have told him. I fully believe she was in love with him by that time but just not able to let herself feel anything or acknowledge it at least. Heck, she loved Dawn enough to have died for her but couldn't show it once she got back. 

Of course, he'd believe her. Anyone else would scoff but not Spike. I love her total honesty. She trusts him with the truth.

“Do you need me to get a soul? Do I have to…?” He trailed off, but the question was clear. “I’ll do it if you want me to. To be what you need. To be the kind of person who’d never… Indeed, he would have just by her asking. Wouldn't necessarily like it but would do it without arguement.

OH I ADORE YOU!!! You saved Tara and Fred too!!!! Knox being fired saved so much grief and no one will ever know.  Tara hadn’t been around last time, so he probably hadn’t lost his job then. But considering how worried Giles had been about her altering time, this was clearly not a big deal. Bwahahahaha if they only DID know.

ANYA too!!! Oh you are quite the Santa.

Hang the prophecy, the whole story was brilliant and perfect in every possible way.

Love the Angel on the tree pic too.

This was not just what I had hoped for but so much more. I loved every syllable, totally perfect. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

I am so sorry for my late response to this! But better late than never, I hope wink

I'm absolutely thrilled that you liked it. I tried hard to write something I thought you might like, so it means a lot to know I succeeded.

Sadly, I think Giles had become hardened and distant by the time we reached s.7, so I can only imagine that he'd continue that arc. Unless, of course, something happened that changed him. Which is all to say, I agree, I can absolutely imagine a situation where he'd try to keep the fact that Spike is alive from her, even if Spike hadn't told Andrew to keep quiet about it. Hopefully, with the changes Buffy made when she went back, Giles did not end up as the bitter Council-man she left behind when she traveled back.

Yess - AYW is such a mess, and so in need of fixing. I highly enjoyed fixing it. I'm glad you enjoyed the way I did it too. Good point about all the devastation the Suvvolte demons were supposed to leave behind them - wouldn't that have been all over the news, or at least the news channels the Scoobies would be checking. 

Also, I completely agree. The way the scoobies behaved when Riley came back was wrong in so many ways. At least Willow was willing to hate Sam, but it was all done in a way that left no doubt that we were supposed to like her and so did Willow. And Buffy did tell them about why they broke up - she told Xander right before he made that insufferable speech in Into the Woods. But clearly, that didn't matter, because now he's back and apparently a hero? I never got it. Perhaps the only one who did get it was Douglas Petrie who wrote the ep.

Okay, full disclosure, that panther crawl was actually added to the scene because I remembered you'd mentioned that you liked it in a previous comment on another ficwink (Also, it really IS hot and fit the scene)

She was definitely in love with Spike by that time. But she wouldn't allow herself to be, and she wasn't in a place where she really could be with anyone. It was very satisfying to reverse that scene and make Spike the one who had the girl in the end and Riley the one who had to fly off with his wife and no Buffy longing for him. (Just how many men do they want her to long for when she's got the perfect vamp right there?)

Yay! I'm so happy you noticed that I saved Fred too. It was kind of subtle, so I know a lot of others didn't. 

Just can me The Santa Bird - no not really - but just for this fic. Of course, I'm saving everyone I can. We know Buffy would too.

Again - I'm not sure I can express just how much I loved this comment! It's amazing, and you certainly deserved a response sooner than I got around to it. But THANK YOU!! hearts
