Have I ever told you that you have a thing for one-liners? I'm not saying that your stories in their entirety aren't fabulous (blasphemy!) I'm just saying that in your stories there's always going to be this perfectly illustrated moment. It's where one of your characters just says the one perfect line and it just knocks the breath out of you. You're really good at that.
"He studied her for a bit, then threw her for a loop when he grasped her arm. "Ehh, 'sall right, pet. You're doin' jus' fine with that pout of yours.""
- Número uno: I love how you bring up his love of the pout, it's freakin adorable. Especially since this is before Willow's spell. :)
"Any woman," she said firmly. "Who would choose Angelus over you…" she took his hand, "…Is a fool."
-Two: I found this highly ironic and nearly heart-wrenching. Keeps reminding me that whatever Spike wants, Angel seems to already ruin it for him. Which is why Angel ranks pretty high on the list of "people who annoy the mess out of me".
"If you'd been mine," he whispered, his voice husky. "Soul or no soul, change or no change… If you'd been mine… I would never have given you up."
-and finally, this would be where the waterworks started. No joke, I'm tearing up. Because this honestly defines his entire relationship with her. And makes him a better man in my eyes, don't care what the other Scoobies have to say about it. Very wonderful.
Kinda wish I'd known about the Spuffy fics way back when you first wrote them, you've got a wonderful hold on their relationship. -BB ;)

This was very sweet. Yet, in character. Loved it.

I loved this, and I'm glad it's not a one-shot. The 'if you'd been mine' bit made me feel all happy and tingly inside.
Now, I'm not sure what kind of review you like, praise only, or concrit, but if it's the latter, I'd hate to not uphold my end of the reader/writer bargain by not giving you what you want... If it's the former, you can stop here and rest assured that you've done very, very well. :)
The thing that kind of jumped out at me was a few out of character things Spike says. The reason they jumped out at me was because everything else he says is so in character. I don't think, for instance, I ever heard Spike utter the word 'darn' in the series. I might have head 'sodding' or 'bloody' in place there. "Lorded it over me" might be more Spike-ish than "rubbed it in my face."
I know those were very minor, nit picky kinds of things, but they were really the best concrit I could come up with. That's a compliment, and I hope it comes across as one.

D'awwww Spike is such a sweet soul. Pardon the irony. I could actually see this as a scene in the show. Honestly I like Buffy better with Spike because he's got more of that "yeah-im-a-badass-but-ive-still-got-a-heart" appeal to him. His character is just so diverse and fun! You really captured his personality and Buffys sluking/pouting. I could see Buffy trying to convince a guy to buy her a drink but then just leaving. Zany dear youve outdone yourself and i cannot wait for your next BTVS piece. Love and all, Danni
