Buffy's not sure if Spike will come through for her, especially when he might finally have a chance to get rid of her. His actions convince Buffy that he is more than an ally, he's a friend, and opens her eyes to the possibility that he's even more than that. Challenge response.

your characterization is so spot-on - this literally feels like it’s just a transcript of a deleted scene or smth. very sexy , very well done . Love !

Buffy's determined to kick off college by finding Mr. Normal, just like Angel wanted -- and then rubbing her new True Love in Angel's face. She's got the perfect normal guy all picked out, until an unexpected encounter at a party gives her a better idea. After all, who could make a worse Bad Boyfriend than Spike?

WOWIE!!!!! this was beautiful start to finish. spike’s innate desire to be Loved and Accepted is one of the most compelling parts of the show and you have captured it so elegantly . and the sex scenes ??? HOO . cannot tell you how much i loved this. will never get over spike crying over the butterflies in the epilogue , or the poetry IN the sex scenes ???? amazing . so well done

Summary: Spike
Turns out the Gem of Amarra is more complicated than just a get-out-of-death-free card and as soon as I put the bloody thing on, I find myself compelled to play the white-hatted hero. And the damn thing is stuck on my finger. Sodding magic.
Riley is perfect, right? Normal, cute, way into me. Not involved with anything that goes bump in the night. So yeah. Perfect.
Except I'm not so sure his white-picket-fence future is one I want. In fact, it kind of makes me ill thinking about it.
And Will’s will-be-done spell, and the very naked things that happened during it? That did not help.
I can handle Buffy being the Slayer. Really.
But she's my future wife and I'm not letting a tacky Billy Idol wannabe of an HST drag her into the darkness.

YEAH, the torture bits took me the absolute longest to write. I had to think, "What would Maggie do? How far would she push it to 'test' her healing?" I was unhappy with where I ended up, because then I had to, you know, WRITE that lol
