Very glad I decided to read this fic even though I am not a big William fan. Or should say, WAS, because your William is fantastic and I'm a big fan now :-) Thanks for a wonderful story; I loved it.

Summary: Alternate reality. Buffy starts as a normal college girl. But her life is slowly turned upside down beginning with the day she’s unexpectedly in danger. Hired by chance to protect her is Spike, a vampire with a reputation for doing business with anyone for enough money. She’s less than thrilled, but finds herself drawn to him even as she realizes he’s more than he seems. But humans aren’t the only ones after her, and when she’s called as the Slayer, her whole world changes. Things with Spike, who she’s discovered some realities about, are no longer as simple as they seemed. But being sent to the Hellmouth and realizing the high death rate of her calling, Buffy hires Spike as backup with the only thing she has left—Slayer blood.

Hi, I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful story and tell you how much I enjoyed it. I was not sure if I would like it at first, because it started so very AU, but it very quickly drew me in and in fact, the characterisation of Buffy and Spike is among the best I've read. I particularly love the organic development you gave to Spike; I think it's completely realistic that he did not just immediately drop his vampiric ways the moment he fell in love with Buffy.

ETA: I'm talking about the whole story (which I just finished) but I accidentally posted this as a review for chapter 1! Oops.

Author's Response on June 21, 2014 01:06am

Thank you so much!  Having Spike still act and think like a vampire even though he falls in love with Buffy was something I really wanted to play with.  I think it's often too easy to have him fall in love and then have him stop killing people just for her.  I do have him stop, obviously, but it takes him a really long time to get there.  I'm glad you enjoyed!

Summary: Response to a challenge by anon462 - my first attempt at a challenge so will be interesting to see how it goes!! Full details of challenge in notes for chapters one. It will no doubt be an angsty ride leading to eventual spuffiness!!
Thank you to whoever nominated it at the Fang Fetish Awards round 9 in Best Future Fic, Best Alternate Reality and Best WIP! Also nominated at Round 14 of The Sunnydale Memorial Fanfiction Awards in Best Post Series Finale and Best Unfinished!  Thanks again! :) :)

Just wanted to post a review to let you know your stories are still being enjoyed! I just finished this one and really liked it. I always believed Spike wouldn't be happy being a "puny" human, and it's was nice reading a story that dealt with this. Also, I liked how the story provided an explanation for why The First tortured Spike by drowning him! These are only a few of the many things I enjoyed about the story; all in all it was just a good read.

Author's Response on August 21, 2014 05:04pm

Thank you so much for taking the time to let me know you still enjoy my work. I am pretty much out of the fandom now in my quest for publication of original work. :)

Summary:

Life, freedom, feelings. There was no place for them here. This was hell, and she its most valued possession.

Buffy's life takes an unexpected turn after being kidnapped, and as the line between sanity and madness starts to blur, the opportunity of freedom will present itself. Will she find enough will to live to take it, or will she take the easy way out and give in to the pain consuming her soul?

And what does one ruthless vampire thirsty for her life have to to do with all this?

*Runner up as a best new author at the SunnyD Awards, Round 18* Thank you!!! :D

Thank you so much for reading!! :)

Summary: She'd kicked his butt, taken the Gem and sent it off to Angel. Buffy thought she'd seen the last of Spike. Clearly, she’d been too optimistic. That he was in her house, in her room, waking her out of a sound sleep and asking for (okay, demanding) her help meant that something had to be majorly wrong. They weren't due for another apocalypse, but...why else would a vampire make a truce with the Slayer?

I just finished reading this story and just wanted to say it's fantastic. I loved the slow build between Buffy and Spike and all their inner (and outer) conflicts, and I'm intrigued by the plot. I hope you'll be able to finish the story someday, but if not it will still remain among the best I've read!

Summary: Sunnydale Memorial Awards Round 27 Nominee: Set in early S. 3 with a few changes: Buffy is still working in LA, she never had the run-in with Lily that made her decide to go back to Sunnydale, and Spike's come back to California already. Both of them are living completely separate, unrelated lives until fate and its sick sense of humor throw them together. Part angst, part fluff, and of course, eventually a little smut.

A wonderful story! One thing I really like about this one (and also about "Offers You Can't Refuse") is that the Spuffy is built up gradually and in a very believable way. Looking forward to reading more.



Author's Response:

thank you so much for your wonderful review. I agree, a sudden jump into a relationship wouldn't work for season 2 or 3 Spuffy without a very slow build. If you enjoyed this, there is a sequel up, called Everything and More. Well, it's a companion piece/ sequel, but it goes with Living Conditions.

Summary:

The holidays were supposed to be a fun-filled time full of presents and overeating, but everything went down the drain when her mother decided to extend charity to a vampire.

The second Spike gave her a challenging smirk and charmed the reason out of her mother, Buffy knew that before the end of Christmas someone would die a painful horrible death. She’d just have to make sure it wasn’t her.

Yes! This is how it should have gone. I like very much how you expanded on the significance of the flaming hands moment.

Many thanks,

Summary: Late S.3 AU. Buffy's only way to stay alive and expose a plot by a deranged Quentin Travers involves staying out of Sunnydale and staying one step ahead while Giles finds a way to save her life and get the evidence to stop the corrupt Head of the Council. But who watches the Slayer's back when she's the prey? Someone makes Spike an offer he can't refuse- but not what you'd expect.

Author's Response:

Thank you so very much!! I will work on it, but I'm also currently writing or updating three new pieces on FF.net, so it takes up a bit of my spare time. But I will work on it! So grateful that you took time to let me know such lovely things!
