Wow. Really wow. I should have left comments as I wwent along, but I was too busy inhaling the story.

I love the way you show so many different perspectives on the same story, giving us the voices of the characters as they interpret and misinterpret what is happening. And the way each of them has to confront their own mistakes and responsibility, both for what they did and did not do. The ending really feels earned.

Beautiful writing, too. This is the sort of sadness that can be consoling; there actually is a way out.

I thought for a moment there that willow was using magic to get spike and Buffy together again because it happened so fast! Anyway, nice story, I just hope anya didn't go back to xander hahaha

Ok things are getting pretty weird now... 😅😅 I feel like something is wrong with Giles (by the way, poor Anya) but now spike and buffy together in bed like nothing? 🤔🤔

Can't imagine what willow is up to now... But I don't think Dawn's artifacts are the ones hurting Spike. Is he becoming human?? 🤔 So many questions...

I like the idea of giles and anya together, I never understood why xander was with her when he hated demons so much and didn't respect her in any aspect. Giles would be a much better match for her.

Your characterization of Anya is just perfect. I read her lines and I keep picturing her in my head totally expressing herself like that. I really like it, she was such a funny character

But after she came back they had made love to each other all over town, sweet and soft, hard and violent and making each other hurt and bleed, and she hadn't even noticed that he wasn't wearing the polish. Hadn't looked at him long enough to see the hands that were touching her, even as she cried out from the pleasure they gave her.

OMG, this is one of the saddest things I've ever read, and I've read quite a few sad stories! But I don't know why, this little detail just broke my heart and make me feel for Spike 😭

Well written, well plotted, in character, and I sure like seeing them all heal

Damn. There’s a whole lot of fucked up going on here. How did nobody catch that NOT PAYING RENT and leaving all the damned bills to Buffy wasn’t ok at all? How was Buffy supposed to be chirpy, Xander? Sheesh. And Willow and her scheming, so not good. Eep

Oh damn I forget just how seriously out of the loop Spike was upon his return. Tara dead, Willow gone, Anya a vengeance demon again...

This story is on my very select "best of" Spuffy list and I come back and read it repeatedly. One of the best "Spike returns with soul" stories, with beautiful characterisation of all the cast, giving them all their due and actually dealing with all their shit from the previous season. It's a struggle to pick one character you do best because they are all great. No, maybe I'll choose Spike and Xander as the ones that moved me most. Poor Xander... you rightly dig into all his pain to make it clear why he's been such an ass. Thanks so much for this. Stories such as this last and last.

Excellent rewrite of season 7! Loved how everyone tried their best to behave mature, and what a difference it made.

Good story you kept me guessing about who was messing with Spike.

But I still don’t understand Spike losing his meal like that? Are they tied together?

Willow will always be a manipulator. That is her nature.

Here’s to hoping they all get along afterwards.

Great fic!

OK so Willow and Xander are fine. Explanations next chapter, please?

Joyce commented on Chapter 19 on June 27, 2019 07:59pm

Xander being a lone child just does not get the importance of Dawn to Buffy.

And agree that Xander totally did a major wrong to Dawn.

Why Willow? To hurt Buffy?  It's like an extra layer of evil over the Hellmouth's energies.

OK, what’s going on here? What was behind Buffy and was there a time travel thingie?

I’m wondering what Anya’s five step plan consisted of?

“Billious yellow” is an excellent description of Cliff’s Notes.

Some 21 year old men make good marriages. My husband was 21.

So I gather that Giles got the flowers to calm the demon waters so to speak and she missed everything that he said.

Buffy certainly has foot in mouth disease…. So stubborn.

How could they think it was Clem?!

Good reference to the Patsy Cline music.

Squee on the last bit!!!

So Anya has the Magic Shop and Giles has a book store? Makes perfect sense.

I Giles had stayed previusly, that probably would have been another can of worms. His reasons are very valid even if Buffy cannot see them.

I absolutely love Anya’s logic here!! Xander is like a very stubborn overgrown child.

Now I want to know what Spike has figured out.

Joyce commented on Chapter 12 on June 27, 2019 07:45am

Why would Spike think of Dawn as his and Buffy's child? Sounds like a plot from another fanfic.

Excellent delineation between "passion and fire" versus "dreams and silences"!   That is such an accurate description of Bangel.

Oh no!  Is Spike going to starve?  That is a really dark spell there.
