Poignant and sad, but I can see you needed to write it and it's a good piece.  I won't worry!

Author's Response on January 31, 2015 05:20pm

Thanks. :) I really am OK; just needed to get it off my chest. 

Summary:  
What if Spike had been telling the truth when he made his sarcastic remark about visiting a nice tea-room at the garbage dump during Season 5’s The Replacement?  This is the story of Agnes Pringle, an English woman coping with life in America, a friend like Spike and oh yes,  being a vampire. Which, as she always said, Was Not Her Fault!

Hi, so glad you enjoyed the first chapter.  I think Spike was just appalled at Agnes' singing and her desire to help him will cause all sorts of problems that we've always wondered about!

Summary: After the Initiative is “shut down”, a fatal decision is made that will change the face of the world and uproot everyone Buffy knows before placing her in the greatest jeopardy of her life.  A new world is born, but is it one they would wish to live in?

Ooooh, me like a lot!    Can't wait for next chapter.   I've always envied you your Buffy voice.

Author's Response on September 07, 2015 10:17am

What a wonderful compliment.  I always try to make them sound like what we saw onscreen (I hear them in my head....or at least that's whoo the voices claim to be LOL).

 

Thank you so much.

OOOOOOh   Nice. l I like.  Seem to be writing very short sentences but hope my feelings come across!

Summary: Life is a series of connected scenes.  They are saved in memory and brought out from time to time like a picture album of treasure and tragedy.  Some bring pleasure.  Some bring pain. Most people save the image of their first love as a treasure to be protected.  Buffy is not so lucky.  Being the Slayer has never been easy for the teen, but she is about to learn that there are some pictures that are forever imprinted in the album of her life.  This story was written for the Elysian Fields 'Artistic Anniversary Challenge'.  Banner 10 by pfeifferpack

Thoroughly enjoying this.  Well done.  I love the scene between Angel, Dru and Spike.  Very realistic and true to character.

Author's Response on October 03, 2016 11:24pm

Glad that you felt so.  Both Spike and Buffy have had enough tragedy occur that they should be able to deviate from canon without folks being too filled with disbelief.  Thanks for reading and reviewing.
