This story was... epic. Amazing. Every single POV is perfectly in-character, all the little details fit with canon and then re-explain it in a way that makes it better and more logical... it's just extraordinary. You're an extraordinary writer.
This is now my headcanon for what really happened.
Thank you so much! This was quite the wild ride with all the different voices and genres I was trying to squeeze in. I'm really glad you liked it!

Eeee! Madcoil! You're an Elfquest fan!
Also, I love the way you deal with consent. I've seen you do it a dozen different ways now, but it's always organic and natural and there. So much love for you!
I... am an ElfQuest fan. Though to be fair, the challenge requested a crossover, so I pulled in bits from a lot of different stories. ElfQuest was just one of them.
I address consent a lot, because Spuffy requires it with the way their relationship formed in canon. I'm glad it comes off well! Thank you.
“What future?” Buffy demanded. “What are you talking about?”
The demon smiled. “You’ll see soon enough.”

This made me cry, and cry, and cry, and go and hug my suicidal husband (who is staying alive only because it would wreck me for him to leave me) and tell him I love him a hundred more times and cry some more. Beautifully written, as always, but each scenario is so vivid and real.
And god I love old people love stories. Love that stands the test of time and outlasts bodies and desire, as in Buffy's vision, is more powerful and beautiful to me than any 'Buffy is somehow ageless so they just keep on living together indefinitely' could ever be. Love that faces reality and embraces it rather than turning away from it.
I'm still crying. This was beautiful. I hope you're feeling more hopeful now than when you wrote it.
*offers up tissue* Yeah, I was in a pretty bad space when I wrote this, but I was actually coming out of it. Too bad a space, and I couldn't have written at all. This story often makes people cry.
I'm glad you liked the Buffy Aging scenario. That's how I like it, too, with Buffy real and human and ephemeral, not magically eternal, or brought back by the Powers That Be, or anything so flighty. Real, solid, warts-and-all love, which means growing old together, even if Spike grows old differently without outward changes. It's just not real love if you need magic to make it last forever. At least that's how I feel about it. And as I showed, the stories where it was supposed to last forever, by Buffy or Spike changing things to make it "different," well. Those endings weren't happy ever after, either. They couldn't be.
I'm so glad this story touched you. Thank you for telling me, it means a lot to hear.
