Hikoru Aniki chapter 1 . 7/21/2011
Very nicely done. I particularly liked the line "And more than anything she wants to feel him loving her. Because one of them has to." It really summed up Buffy's feelings at the time in a rather accurate and succinct manner.

The descriptions were good without being cloying, and the story flowed. Nice job.

It's interesting that you chose not to have a single line of dialogue. It makes the entire thing seem floaty and insubstantial; like a memory so vague you can't be sure if it was real or a dream. It's a perfectly fitting style Buffy's frame of mind around this time, and for this piece.

I'd be really interested in seeing a companion piece that is this encounter from Spike's point of view, especially if it felt more substantial, since that's more in-character for him.

Kudos on a very nicely written piece.

Sad, but beautiful and somehow hopeful, like everything in their messed up, issue-filled relationship might be okay after all. She seems to be accepting, and he's trusting her, as always.

Lovely one-shot, I like. :)
