I think this is the most beautiful Spike/Buffy fic I have ever read. I was in tears by the end of it. I loved seeing their relationship through everybody's eyes, just...wow.
| SpyKid18 chapter 1 . 1/16/2012
Absolutely loved this. Brilliant.
| Maida chapter 1 . 3/28/2011
Very well done. You see characters in ways that I have never thought of before, and you really wrote all the characters brilliantly. You also put just the right amount of humor into. I think my favorite line is, when Illyria is trying to understand the relationship,
"Illyria is quite certain that she feels no desire to ever laugh."
Great line, great story.

Hey, just an idea but you might want to put line breaks in between the individual perspectives since you did all as one chapter. You're less likely to confuse readers this way, though it was usually made pretty obvious when a shift occured. It was a good story though, well written and thoughtful. I can tell you really put some thought into how everyone is percieving events.

I understand this was published two years ago, and usually this amount of time would stop me from reviewing, but in this case, I couldn't just not do it. I've read my fair share of Spuffy fics, and this one is my favorite by far. I've read it a few times now, and for some reason, the last line always makes me tear up. Starting with Fred and ending with Illyria (whether you planned it that way or not) was genius. Loved it.

That was... Incredible.
You are an amazing writer.

Although this isn't exactly my idea of what ought to happen, it's correct in the emotional essentials. Very nicely done, especially the Faith bit, where Buffy speechifies about how amazing Spike is. Good job on Giles's disgust, too.

Nicely done. Thanks for the read :)

prettyful-liked illyria's bit.

I have no idea why I hadn't read this yet! It was so perfect I don't even know where to begin. You've reminded me of how much I love all these characters (even though it broke my heart that Fred opened the piece and Blue ended it, because there was no Fred anymore), and everyone's voice was so spot on. But more than that, you took Spike and Buffy and their relationship and made it more than sex and violence, you let the characters grow up which is something there just isn't enough of in most Spike/Buffy stories. Having just rewatched Once More With Feeling, I just want to beg you to write more, because there aren't enough stories that really capture the heart of Joss' characters like this one has.
Fantastic story, really one of the best.

I’m usually wordy when I review, but for this fic of yours, I’ll just quote Buffy herself:
Color me stunned!
Everyone was just pitch-perfect! It’s like Joss Whedon said in one interview: ’I love every single one of these characters, let me remind myself why.’ I mean, it really looks like you wrote Joss’s characters with the same love he does :D
And now I’m off to rec this to my friends who think that Spuffy is just all about unhealthy sex!
Oh, and one more thing…
:adds to Faves: : )

the best fanfic i have read for a long time :)
loved it please do more in a similar vein. maybe after this battle?
| sweetiepie1019 chapter 1 . 11/24/2008
Loved it! Definitely one of my favorite Spuffy fics. I think you got everybody's reaction pretty spot-on. I love that you started with Fred and ended with Illyria, by the way. And really, what was Angel thinking going after a dragon? Silly, silly Angel. :D Anyway, just wanted to say nice job.

I love kaleidoscopes and yours is very charming. The story is bittersweet and correct for the voices mentioned. Loved Xander practising Spike's grin and Faith's teasing (and envy of) about the Slayer and her Vampire. Fred's dear interpretation of the situation is lovely. The voices of the beloveds-Spike coming home after going out to fight by himself and Buffy's reaction are perfect. Illyria is always a difficult character isn't she?
Love kaleidoscopesyours is specially enjoyed. nice flow of action as well.
