I hate to say this, but I would highly recommend (If you're still around, hah!) going through all of your chapters and inserting quotation marks.
While it seems like an interesting fic, it is hard and sometimes impossible to know what is speech and what is narrative.

I like this story and the way of writing but I would suggest rewriting the story with appropriate marks. Putting quotations on sentences and seperating them from actions or thoughts will make it easier for the reader. Other than that, well thought and well written.

Goode story. Very much enjoying it. If I can just make one or 2 simple recommendations. The beginning when you give summaries, perhaps a different font, bolded or italicized. Gets confusing otherwise. As well, again purely grammatical, (sorry English prof here) Use quotations during conversations, otherwise it is again confusing when a conversation ends and you are thensimly discribing. One shouldn't have to think and iterpret that way when reading...it should flow smoothly. Again, just a thought.

I treasure Spike and Willow bonding every time I see it. I'm not sure why, but I've always liked them as friends. For some reason I've rarely been able to enjoy a story that pairs them as a couple, even though I can read Spike paired with just about any female in the 'verse. Except for Dru or Harmony, for some reason. I guess I have a hard time with either of them connecting to Spike on anything like an equal level, which I guess is necessary for me to buy a romance. That's not the case with Willow though, and for some reason I can never see them together like that. Of course, with Spike being my favorite protagonist, and Buffy being *his* favorite... I guess that'll always be the relationship that rings truest for me. Especially since it seemed to have evolved so naturally over the course of the show.
God, my paragraph structure sicks. Fortunately, yours flow nicely.

Buffy's a moron. Of course, if she wasn't, we'd be lacking dramatic tension. And Spike loves her anyway, so all I can do is hope she gets over it before things get too screwed up. Fat chance of that, since getting the emotional stuff screwed up if king of their specialty. Ah well, watching them stumble through is half the fun. It's about the journey.

I had to chuckle at your author's note at the end. I like long chapters, and these have been pretty short, which was disappointing. I love the story though, so it's hard to complain. I do think you could trim down the summaries at the beginning of the chapter, preferably down to one paragraph. Which is not to complain about having the summaries there at the beginning of each chapter - that is something I wish more authors did, especially in long works in progress. There are a number of truly fantastic (and enormous) stories out there that I tend to avoid, solely because the thought of starting at the beginning when I'm pretty sure I read the first eighty thousand words or so several months ago isn't appealing. Anyway, summaries are great, but they shouldn't take up half of the length of a chapter's post.
The actual narrative of your story is fantastic, by the way.

This was a great story I can't believe I didn't read it sooner
| BunnyKat chapter 18 . 6/9/2004
Actually, I think the "no showing emotions" thing is one of the most interesting idea I've ever read (and I've read QUITE a few fics). And the way you're putting it out there is amazing.
I'll keep reading now!

so i got something to say...first it was a good story...it has been on my favs list and i just havent got to finish readin it till today...but yes it was a much better ending in my opinion...and ok secondly though i dont think it would be possible for Giles to be born in 1964...because that would have to mean that he was like 40 and really hes like 50 or so...just something i thought about...but yea it was a good story though...i applaud you...)

So glad you finished. ;-) And I loved how you wrapped up the lose ends. Many stories end way too fast and seem rushed. I liked how you took the time to explain what happened to everyone - or at least a hint.
