I know it's 10 years later but I just have to say that everything that happened in this is exactly how I wanted it to happen. Thank you so much for sharing. You are an amazing writer and I hope you realize how perfectly you captured everything about each character. Thank you! I'm obsessed with this story.

I just started Part II, but I'm inspired. Bloody brilliant story you've crafted here.
You have a wonderful way of writing in Buffy's voice - I usually hate reading fics in her first person POV - and not making me hate her. I have hardly been able to put this story down. And then getting to Part II?! With Spike?! I love the way you write him. He's PERFECTLY captured.
Then there's your Big Bad. What a twist! With the challenge and the Jack Frost and the heavy metaphors! She's a superb replacement for Glory. Or, rather, a glorious replacement? Nevertheless, I approve wholeheartedly.
I'll say this, too - I thought the clues you left were subtle enough that I feel smart for having picked up on them, but I wasn't too far ahead of the characters that I got frustrated. You struck the right balance with the dreams, canon material, and various foreshadowing elements.
You, Dear Author, have entranced me with your words. Thank you. I am so looking forward to the rest of this thrilling tale.

It’s 2020 and I’ve read this story for the first time. Hands down this is the best thing I’ve ever read. It feels like it’s canon and not a fanfic at all and that’s how I’m gonna treat it for sure. Everything I’ve ever wanted from the show has happened here and I couldn’t be bloody happier. Thank you so much for this amazing story! I just wish you’d write a second part cuz I need more of this without any doubt. Now that I’ve finished it I’m feeling kinda sad cuz no other fanfic can compare to this so I have nothing else to read regarding Spuffy. Hopefully you write about them again one day! (Pleaseee do.) Xoxo

I don’t even know where to start. I know I’m super late to the party here, but I’m so glad I found this when I did. Better late than never. It’s fantastic. Really, some of the best written stuff I’ve ever read and I read a lot, so that’s saying something. I can tell how much work you put into this story, research and writing time. Your craft is amazing. I look forward to going through the rest of your work. I may have to reread this one again first though. It’s just that good.

I don't know if you even read comments still, but since I will now be rereading this masterpiece for the seventh or eighth time I feel like I have to comment. This fic is so good words aren't enough to describe it. It has picked me up from feeling low so many times... if this ever disappears from the internet I will be devastated. Guess I just wanted to let you know how much these beautiful words you've written mean to some random stranger out there.

I am incapable of watching or reading anything related to Buffy, Spike or Angel without rereading this fic. It is so good and detailed. It hits all my happy fanfiction buttons! And there are detailed parts of it that are definitely in my Spike headcanon. I cant get over how much work, effort, care, and love you put into this story. It's definitely epic. Also, epically amazing!

I know it’s been years since you wrote this, and a couple years since you published anything on the site, but that last little bit is a one shot I’d love to see- Buffy meeting Robin Wood in this universe. I love this story.

Wow, ok... so I don't even know where to begin. I've read a lot of fanfiction, and I can say with absolute certainty that this is the best fanfic I have ever read about any show/story. The dialogue is AMAZING. Everything has felt absolutely canon.
I recently finished the television series, and have been slowly making my way through the comics. I was so, so sad with how it ended (I know Spike is alive, but like, not too great in the closure department-at least not pre- finishing the comics). I looked up fanfiction to get a little more of that closure, and this fanfic popped up as the top favorited of all the stories out there on Spuffy. My expectations were high, and you surpassed them completely. Reading this was absolutely addictive, and I binged my way through it in 4 days. I can't imagine what your followers went through as you were posting between June and September (and I'm really grateful for being able to binge through after the big finish).
The time and care you put into this is obvious from every word in this story. Everyone who has and will read this is so blessed to have your talents applied to this long-term work that you did freely and without reward outside the favorites and reviews of those following you.
I just wanted to send you a huge thank you for all of this. This has been the best novel I've read in a hot minute-which is astounding and delightful given that it's fanfiction. It's given me the closure I've needed with Spuffy. And I can't wait to read through Dust and your other content (which I'm sure I will fall in love with as well). I know thousands of people must have already said this, but you are absolutely amazing. I hope that you do or will dedicate your talents to becoming a published author. You clearly have a gift for it-from your phenomenal dialogue, your exceptional/enticing smut scenes, and your incredible story-line (which was your own and deviated from the show in amazing and unexpected ways while still incorporating it and the Buffyverse).
Thank you, thank you, thank you. I'm overwhelmed and in awe of you. I hope you are well and still inspired to share your talent with the fanfic community and anyone else who can witness your writing. Much love and support 3

Ahhhhhh! I'm late to the game but obsessed with this story and your writing. I've been bingeing it over the last two days. I really want to see this song playlist, but I can't find it. Can you help direct me to it?
P.S. I love you. Thank you so much. (I plan to do my full, "you're amazing!" review at the end c: )
| SpikeMyShake chapter 76 . 5/20
simply the best fanfiction I have ever read, ever. the way the show should have ended. author channels each of the characters incredibly well! simply flawless!
the only super minor complaint I have is that sometimes the expressions usedsuss out,of the [adjectivebreak immersion, but everything else more than makes up for it. 10 sharply-whittled-by-Xander stakes out of 10!
| Guest chapter 76 . 5/18
I have read this fic about 5 or 6 times and it gets better every time. I love how true you stayed to the characters And the spirit of the show. It is so well written and thought out. Thank you for sharing it!
| Kaeme.yume chapter 76 . 5/7
One of the best Spuffy fanfiction I've read so far! Thank you for this amazing story, I've enjoy every chapter like an episode from the show!
| Sevmooniadayra chapter 11 . 4/16
I've just begun your story and so far, I love it.
I'd just wish Buf wouldn't hit Spike so much :'(
I'm looking forward from reading the rest :)
Love the slow development
| TeamEricNSookie chapter 76 . 2/2
This is a very good story. Thank you so much for sharing your vision, you did an excellent job.
I feel like I should leave a long word he review but I believe the proof is in the putting. If you just stumbling upon this story my best advice to you is to read it, you will not be disappointed.
I love your characters development. First I felt like your Buffy was shallow but after giving it a lot of thought I realize that’s the way that she was painted even in the series. Xander is an idiot across-the-board. But I do understand what you mean about he has a good heart and he’s just looking out for his friends he’s just a little ignorant while he does it. Your other supporting cast members were great I enjoyed them as well. Thanks for giving Anja a voice, I think people downplay her importance to the series. I kept expecting Lydia to go bad. As always Spike need a standing ovation thank you for sharing your version of ole William.

I wanted to write a long-ass review but it's 1 AM and I just finished this and all I can say is the amount of effort you put into writing this is amazing. You captured the voices of every single character SO perfectly, especially Buffy and Spike. Your creation of the prophecy and the entire plotline that ran through this fic was so believable in terms of the show that it could have legit been a season and I wouldn't have questioned it. The development of Buffy and Spike's relationship was also realistic. And ah! Mr Gordo. (spoilers)
I loved that despite guessing that he would be Spike, when it was revealed that he was him was still so powerful. Spike's POV through his journal was again such a unique way to approach fanfiction writing. And the poetry! The way you created poems in the style William/Spike would've written themI don't know how you did it, just brilliant.
I hope you still continue to write and create and thank you so much for sharing your work with us
