this is quite possibly one of the best fanfic's i have read for the sole fact that every character was rendered with the same attributes the characters from the show had..even speech. so awesome! good story line too, I absolutely loved it

Wow. That was magnificent. Truly the best B/A story this side of the Sublime Archive that doesn't leave you feeling suicidally depressed. Quite the contrary.
It's bittersweet, but there's hope. And love. And friendship.
I love that you squeezed Riley in there. Too bad Giles isn't a gossip queen, because that would have been an interesting conversation.
I don't think any story featuring both Spike and Angel would be complete without them fighting at least once. Spike's smart though, he understood. I absolutely adored how he mentioned that Angel thinks people belong to him. It's true in a way, he thinks they are all his responsibility, and that would be easily stretched out into something perverse sans soul.
Lydia cracks me up. I keep picturing Winona Ryder a la Beetle Juice. I hope Angel won't be too terribly hard on her. Must be hard for him to wrap his mind around a whole bunch of newly souled vampires who might not consider themselves an evil, blight on humanity.
And, of course, the big scene. Angel finally figures out why Buffy needs him to drink from her. Why she let him in enough to trust him. Beautiful.
Astounding chapter. With so many possibilities for other stories in that universe. *hinthint* ;)
Thank you so much.

I was lucky enough to stumble onto this around 2:30 this morning, and several hours later, here I am.
I didn't think I would finish this all in one go, but your writing was too compelling to minimize for the night. I really felt that you captured the characters beautifully. Not only that, but your style and mechanics silenced my grammar demon.
Thanks for an excellent read!

Aww, it's over! Yes, I'm a little sad to see it go as I will miss this story. But at the same time, I think it ended where it needed to end. By the way, really cute scene with Buffy and Angel and the hotel room invitation thing :) And the ending with the goodbye but not really saying goodbye...I thought that was well written too. ;)
Thanks so much for keeping me entertained! :) I enjoyed reading this story and looked forward to every update. It's hard sometimes for me to find a fanfic that I can really get into, but I really liked this one. You have obviously put a lot of effort into this story. Whatever you write next...I'm sure it will be great!
Speaking of writing, I'm sure you've probably lived and breathed this story for like months and need a break (lol), but if you ever feel like writing some more Buffy/Angel, or even a sequel to this story, you should definitely write it :)
But for now, go take a much needed writing break! Congrats on finishing! :)

oh my god that was awesome

Great End Chapter! I hope that one day you will write a sequel. I know right now you need to do other stuff, but one day... :-D

*sigh* Wow. I've never read a story that ended with a parting of ways more beautiful than this one. Mostly, obviously, because it's only a temporary parting. Not that that's cheating or anything... I'm totally in contentment land about this ending. It is entirely made of win. I love how she lent him strength in the very literal sense, and that it left them feeling connected. Hee...
Moving on. Or, more accurately, moving back, since I started with the last scene. This is one of *very* few stories in which the Shanshu was made to appear an unlikely eventuality that I haven't had a problem with. They didn't hang all their hopes on the prospect of it happening and they didn't get around the curse by way of a deus ex machina, but things still worked out. It's a comfortable equilibrium with just the right amount of vague regret.
The scene with Angel and Spike was *awesome*. I particularly loved the plays on "all the rage" and lion prides, and I'm really glad they didn't just want to kill each other. Spike accepted defeat without departing from his classic form, Angel was very blunt and pulled no punches (verbally and physically), and Spike got in a last blow (again, both verbally and physically). All brilliant.
Buffy in the Hyperion! You got the wonder she felt being there for the first time really well. The part when she and Angel made it up to his room and she had to invite him in yet again was both cute and hilarious-the hilarious came when he started growling and taking his clothes off in the hall and distracted her from her diabolical plan. Awesome.
Pancakes scene! Yay Willow and Oz! I wanted to hug Willow when she was all nervous about what he would say and trying not to get her hopes up. Giles was highly amusing throughout (hehe, "strongly worded letter"), and as usual, you wrote everyone spot on. Lydia as Buffy's sidekick is an entertaining notion, and I love that she giggles at her lack of reflection. Her mindset doesn't exactly leave room for angst about what she is. Being weirded out about dinking blood aside, she's more than just cool with it, and that's fun. The nods to the Initiative, the Council, and the Church were really good touches contributing to the "this isn't really over even if the story is over" ending.
So...it's over. Again, wow. For one, thanks for actually finishing it in the first place, because the endless discarded WIPs lying around that make me want to break things in frustration. But more importantly, thanks for finishing it well. Better than well. I think I can safely applaud this as the best veering off mid-canon fic I've ever read, and the thought of rereading it on occasion is like having an extra squishy stuffed animal.

Thanks for staying with it and completing it

SWEETIE! Ah, you're DONE! So much yay! Ok, freak out over.
You totally NAILED everyone in this chapter. I don't know when I noticed it, but you got everyone so perfectly.
Loved this line: "Plus, I'm not sure if they have pancakes in England." Funny Willow.
W/O serious adorable-ness in this chapter. *Melting*
"Just her one love giving her a goodbye kiss"- this was a very good way of showing how Buffy accepts Angel as he is.
I liked how you had Angel wait a moment before biting her, gauging whether it was worth it. A lot of writers have him just randomly biting her as a marking thing and it's a little too alpha, dominating guy for me. This was good- share-ful!
I was a little surprised by the Angel/Spike fight scene. It was really good, but when it started, I was like "a fight in the last chapter?" But it turned out really well and was a good Angel/Spike parting. (Did that sound too slashy? I totally didn't mean it that way. B/A FOREVER!)
On the ending: Oh, evil. Everything's resolved except they don't live together (which I do get) and SHANSHU! If you wanna write a sequel, that'd be great. Super great, even. But if not, just write something new soon!
I'm working through the long review. It'll come back to you soonishly.
P.S. Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh, can't believe I forgot this: Thank you, thank you, thank you for thanking me! I'll listen to your fangirl rambles anytime!

Great Chapter! I'm wondering what the conversation with Spike will be like. LOL
Can't wait for the next chapter!
| Maverick500 chapter 34 . 3/18/2009
