This was all simply gorgeous. I loved the realistic way you wrote everyone's paths to growing up and older, with lots of humor to make it through bleak grey areas. Definitely heard the character's voices in the dialogue, especially Andrew.
Also, lol at "mojo rising, mister"
Hope you are doing well with your writing, and would love to read more in the future. Thank you so much for writing this and sharing it!

Brava!!! Wonderful story! That was a rough psychological journey for Spike. I feel like you really expressed PTSD well here.
Also, love this line: “The only reason you need to have sex is, I wanted to.” So satisfying to hear Buffy say that. That whole huge bunch of baggage is honestly one of the neatest things about this fandom or ship or whatever. I'm so glad good writers like you like to write about it 😄
I lived with people with pretty severe PTSD, with differing and varied symptoms, but I ended up internalizing a lot of the symptomatology for later use in story. It's helpful.
I'm big on clearing up sexual hang-ups. I'm so glad you appreciate it!

I really enjoy this story, your writing, and the fast updates 😊
OK, slightly confused. I'm guessing this review goes with the next chapter because he made out like a bandit in this one. lol. Yeah...not sure why Buffy can't just accept him and his offer as legit, but it looks like she needs a minute. She's already thought all about marriage so what's the hold up? Still shadows of Liam and her liking things all done up properly with t's crossed and i's dotted.
Thanks for letting me know you're enjoying the story. I'm impatient and live for fast updates no matter which side of a story I'm on, reader or writer.
Such a wonderful story! So much detail that really made the characters come alive without becoming repetitive. Well done!
Thank you so much. I am very character driven and it's a total self-indulgence for me to get inside their heads. I'm always thrilled when the readers enjoy it too. Thanks for reading!
As far as Spike is concerned, life doesn't get better than being cock of the walk in the rising anarchy of 1980 New York City. Vampires are a growing threat, and he's the one to lead the underground rebellion in defeating them.
Except...maybe not. Because in a different world, one Spike died to save, a certain Slayer discovers his journey just might not be over yet after all.

...or perhaps in this one, where the world has yet to grow with population and industry. Where a little cottage in the middle of a cold, frozen forest is the home of one Buffy Summers. Her surroundings are vacant, her life calm and filled with work and minimal play, but that's true for most people. She doesn't mind living this life, or doing so quite far from town. The place never felt very big when she resided there with her parents, and now she calls a different place home.
When her grandmother passed on the cottage became Buffy's alone, though it should be said she tries to walk the same wooded path. Following her family's teachings to earn a living, even if she couldn't practice what talents they had cherished and honed, is precisely what brings her to the edge of a man's wintry deathbed. A pale, blue eyed stranger with white hair and no prayer for survival, unless she helps him.

The direction this went in this chapter made me think of something I read a million years ago that really made an impression on me. When I looked it up just now, was amazed to see the Sime/Gen universe all up in the internet! Anyway, it's sci fi with a vampiric element. I like the evolution from predator/prey to sharing and protecting.
Yay! I'm glad this reminded you of something that made an impact on you before! I've never heard of that story/fiction you mentioned, but I'm sure it's very interesting. I also love the evolution from predator and prey to protector and friend.
Thank you for reading and reviewing!

Seriously, I have a Pavlovian response to both of your author names already. So glad you both enjoy this so much!
*rings a bell* Really, it is incredibly fun. I hope you continue to enjoy as well. Thank you!
