| DolbyDigital chapter 6 . 3/17/2014
I really loved that you didn't go for the cliche happy ending; I think you're right - it would have been to happy and to much like a fairy tale, which doesn't fit with the series at all, so great job. I really enjoyed reading this. And I think it was awesome that you didn't turn this into a Buffy!Bashing fic; I've read too many of those recently.

I'm not sure I understand when this chapter is taking place, but other than that, it was wonderful. I really liked the different style; how it shows the disjointed thoughts, the hurt, anger and confusion. It was very well written.

I really like how Xander never quite managed to figure out what to call Spike, and that he's focusing on that at the beginning because it's /easier/ than focusing on the fact that Spike's dead. I think that you wrote his confusion really well; how his thoughts kept jumping, and he was struggling to stay on track. And I really liked that he kept Spike's ashes. I thought that was really sweet.

I love the line 'it's here where I start to realize that I may have made a bit of an oops' - major understatement!
This chapter is absolutely heartbreaking; I love that it actually /was/ an accident, and that Buffy feels bad about it. And Xander's reaction was perfect. I really liked how he couldn't blame himself or Buffy because he /knew/ that it was an accident, and he wasn't going to go and lay blame where it didn't belong.

I think you portrayed Xander's confusion and eventual acceptance really well; I liked how he was trying to justify why he /shouldn't/ be with Spike, and ended up convincing himself that he should.
The sentence 'even I had just gone away to work in the next town for the weekend' reads a little strangely. Maybe it should be 'even if I had just gone away to work in the next town over for the weekend'.

This is a really interesting start; I like how Spike was originally just trying to mess with Xander a little, but then he actually started to /feel/ something for him and no matter how hard he tries not to, he keeps finding himself coming back for more.
There were a few grammar and spelling mistakes, but nothing major. When you wrote 'there's absolute shit-all to do in this fucking town' it should actually say 'absolutely' and when you wrote 'So I'd thought I'd', it should be 'So I thought I'd'.

Okay I understand this was written a long time ago. Doesn't mean I have to like the ending. Great writing. Not your fault I don't like it. I am a dyed in the wool, die hard, Happily Ever After kind of person.

I liked it, despite the not-so-happy return and ending redux. You wrote Buffy really well...you could easily have made this a Buffy-bashing story, but you didn't do that. So not only was it well written, but it kept sight of the essential relationships.
Poor Spander though.

You had me until the third chapter. That sucked. I like Spike, you're not supposed to kill him. Oh well, it was well written and I enjoyed everything but the dusting.
