I must say I love this season rewrite better then the original season. Buffy, Spike ...Everyone is in character. I read all 18 chapters in night with my mom yelling at me to go to bed (which I did very reluctly). For the first time in a long while I cried because I reached the end of a story. Please update very soon. I'm addicted to Buffy all over again.

So I very much love your story! I feel like you totally understand the characters and the story, and it's like the actual thing, just reading. Mind you though, I haven't actually watched the fifth season in forever, so I can't remember all the real dialogue-but still, quite nice! Please keep writing!

Congratulations! Babies are precious. :)
"'Don't even start, Spike,' Buffy said, spinning him to face her, ignoring the thrill at having him pressed up against the wall."
These scenes were fun, when she's got him on a wall, mostly because she's not actually exerting that much pressure half the time, she's just kinda holding him in place with her fingers. It's half sexy, half simply effective, and maybe with an undercoating of potential for turning into a gentler hold.
I like how Spike really respects Slayers. I mean, somewhere, some vamp or demon killed a Slayer. It's not like he's the only one who ever has. But he treats them like what they are: special. And here, you've made him show plausible regret that he didn't show her more respect than he did.
Grin. YEEESSSS! They're both in love, now all they've gotta do is pull themselves together-and arrange an accident for Riley-and they'll be all set!
Joss. Shiver. Riley... that was dark.
I always found somethings strange about Buffy's relationships. Well, not so much strange as telling. They all have dark hair-except Spike. They all leave her-except Spike. They all have one specific part of her that they just can't handle-except Spike. I'm sensing a pattern here. Plus, Angel and Spike? Well, actually, that's off topic, so I won't go there.
Suffice to say, I love this fic, keep up the good work, and don't stress yourself out! Congrats again on the new baby!

Whoo. Go Riley. *shrugs boredly* You've resisted temptation in it's most skanky form. Congrats. How long do you think it'll last?
Awwww! Spike and Tara fwendwies!
"He looked unsure and a little vulnerable, and way more endearing than he should've."
I disagree. I'm not saying he should always look like that, but Buffy, he can be snarling and screamin' bloody murder at you and he'd still be endearing.
Oh, sod off.
Love how he keeps calling her pet. :D
Awwww! I wuv him! And he's... really hilarious. "I don't much like the ponce."
Smirk. Buffy does. She likes you snarky, cocky, violent, volatile, and dangerous, but she also likes you sweet, kind, and thoughtful, and helpful. See? She likes both William and the demon-she likes the vampire: Spike.
Ugh. "Oh, Pacey..." I just realized that quote doesn't actually fit with what I'm trying to say here. *sheepish grin*

"Her mind conjured up an image of Spike, deadly and lean in black leather and red silk…"
Alright, listen, Ducks. If you want me to stay focused on the plot... who am I kidding? I'll stay focused so as not to miss any of those... details. ;)
"Why can't he be more like Spike?"
I shouldn't laugh at his pain and her inner turmoil. But... you shouldn't have written this then. :D
A Spike who is NOt in love with Buffy, but helps her of his own free will anyhow... I love his fic. #)
Smiles. Oh Spike. You did something noble. Breathe. It'll be okay. Try not to choke. *rolls eyes*
Aw! I always wanted Spike to appear when I watched that episode. Just, you know, show up, lurk in the shadows, and all that.
| Indigo-Night-Wisp chapter 15 . 5/17/2011
Oh, yay. One for me then! ~
Oh. Goody. Old Man Maclay has arrived. Joy.
She needs a fight, Riley needs a cuddle. See, Spike can do the cuddles too, and Buffy loves to snuggle, but the thing is, he can switch at the drop of a hat, while Riley just wants to... play it by book.
Oy. Vey. I'm beginning to see why this fic is called Vice Versa. That did NOT happen that way.
I like your version better. *pouts*
| Indigo-Night-Wisp chapter 14 . 5/17/2011
Ooh, Cordy-a-like? Yowch, Buff.
Tara is sweet. I really liked this episode. Mainly for Spike-related reasons, but I always found it fun that he and Tara seemed to understand each other so well.
"'Chubby?' Anya repeated, eyes widening. 'Tara's not chubby! Just because she doesn't precisely conform to some misogynistic, sexist ideal of the female form, you men think it's fine to - '"
Alright Anya! Give him hell!
Joss, I hated her family. Part of the reason I enjoy what happens later so much...

Have I ever said how much I love this story? No? Yes? I can't rightly remember, but, anyways...
Please update soon!
| Indigo-Night-Wisp chapter 13 . 5/17/2011
I care! I care! I just have to catch up! :)
"Spike helped you? And didn't ask for money?"
*Giles collapses in a state of brain-friedness*
Aw... letting him get away with stuff 'cause he got beat up helping her... she's a goner.
I think, deep down, they all really do like Spike. Sure, they think he's annoying, and I'm not including Riley in that by any means, but you can tell, they don't really hate him. Willow and Tara like him, I think, and Xander was all "Hey, I'm not the only guy in the gang" before Riley showed up, Anya is probably of the opinion that once he and Buffy cut the crap and get togehter, they'll both be much easier to be around, and Giles... I think Giles really does respect Spike. And we all know how Buffy feels. ;)
'Does he have to be such a drama queen?' Giles mused aloud. 'I mean, all the duster-swirling and door-slamming – it's like having a teenager around.'
And Exhibit A: Giles thinks of Spike as a son... like he thinks of Buffy as his daughter...
'If I say it loud enough, it might even sound convincing…'
Exhibit B: De-NIAL!

Cute, how you turned that scene around with Spike. :)
Oh dear. Spike, bargaining, Buffy... grin.
"'Lucky me,' Buffy muttered, ignoring the part of her which meant that sincerely."
"'You hit a girl!'"
Oh, Joss, that was funny.
Ah, Spike, you and your bloody pride...
| Indigo-Night-Wisp chapter 11 . 5/17/2011
Glory was always a fun villain. She didn't really have any world-ending agendas, she just wanted to go home. The only problem is, she doesn't care how many people will die if she gets what she wants.
Nice, with the Gateway, and the Key. Smooth. ;)
| Indigo-Night-Wisp chapter 10 . 5/17/2011
Ooooo, Glory plot!
I like how you're keeping this canon-ish, without going overboard on the episode recaps.
"'Well, it's so shiny,' Giles faltered."
I think that's the most hilarious thing I've ever read fanfiction Giles say. Like, ever.
De Nile's a river in Egypt, Buffy, and Riley's a git anyhow.

Oh gag me. No strenuous exercise.
Spike, you really know how to inadvertantly ruin everybody's day don't you?
"Buffy and Spike both looked at her, stunned for a second, and their eyes met in a moment of shared disbelief. Spike shrugged, a little embarrassed, and Buffy rolled her eyes."
Oh, I died. I'm telling you, died.
HUGE SMILEY FACE. It's a switcheroo! Buffy's in love with Spi-ike, Buffy's in love with Sp-ike!
