Well, this story is interesting. Certainly good story. I found it a little wierd how openly all teens talk before they parents (nearly got me to leave this story) but you handle the other stuff so well I was to interested to not to read. Hope you will finish it at some point :-)

Okay, I must say, I love how intertwined this story is with the show! So many lines and character traits, I just laugh and smile every time I read one. Bloody brilliant, you are!

Giles and Joyce... That's good. I like the added input of Faith and Gunn too, their characters make sense with the story. Your writing is fantastic, the characters are so real!

| RmsThakoer chapter 40 . 5/22/2013
I hope you're reading this, and i hope the support'll help your problem a bit, but since i've started reading this story, when you were at about chapter 28, i've been hooked and eagerly awaiting every next chapter. So i hope the next comes through soon, if you have the time.

It will be really interesting to see how Riley interacts with others under these new circumstances. I imagine he will be quite defensive with everyone, just as Spike was when the truth about James' treatment of him was revealed.
Dawn - being young, and fond of Spike, and probably sheltered from knowing the worst of what's happened to the foster kids her family takes in, and having already been mentioned as disliking Riley - will probably get angry and yell at him, leading to a big fight as Riley gets mad at her in turn and Buffy and Spike leap to Dawn's defence (while Joyce and Giles, if present, try to mediate), possibly resulting in physical violence and those martial arts lessons finally being used, but hopefully ending in something cathartic that will put everyone on the road to healing.
Will we see more of Riley and Graham's relationship? (Assuming they're still together, if they ever really were together beyond just sex.) What about Riley's interactions with Angel - they've already changed drastically in the past few weeks; how will they be further changed by this? I expect Gunn will start having a bigger role in this story in future chapters, being someone both Riley and Spike can relate to and might turn to for advice and guidance. (Again, making assumptions - in this case, that Riley's father's treatment of him didn't result in him being completely unable to trust adult men as authority figures.)
I look forward to seeing how the plot develops.
