I really like this! Sorry to see it hasn't been updated in a long time though :(

This. Story is awesome so far. It made me cry at some points, but everything is very realistic. I've never read the comics, but this is partially how I would have guessed the story continued. Everyone is in character, and it's all in all a great read. A lot of stuff about character relationships and emotions is left implied in the canon, but here you have it all hashed out clearly, and it flows completely naturally. This story hasn't been updated in a while, so I'm not getting my hopes up too high, but if it isn't completely abandoned or discontinued, I would really love to read more.

Great story, so far. Hope you can keep going soon.
| euphoric-acid chapter 13 . 10/22/2013
Please continue. I need the reunion!
| LilyAmelia chapter 13 . 9/20/2013
This was truly wonderful to read.
You really have the characters' voices down to pat (no matter the fandom, by the way. You just seem to GET them, it's amazing. I love your writing.)
I hope you'll continue this fic one day, I'll be eagerly waiting for an update! (And my patience is infinite, heh).

Please please do update this story I am in love with where you are taking this :D
I really hope that you do continue, if you do you will have an ever loyal fan here willing to help out in any way and give great reviews :)
You writing is brilliant!

I LOVE this story! It is probably my favorite of all Spike/Buffy stories! This is so amazingly written and I couldn't stop reading! I really hope you continue writing this because it is so good and I think it would be beyond amazing to read what happens if Buffy finds out Spike's alive! It would be awesome if you could update soon!

Really enjoyed this. Looks like it's discontinued, but this wasn't a bad stopping place. Great writing and story.
| 3LW00D chapter 13 . 6/7/2013
This is amazing! I've never seen a post S7 fic quite like this. I really hope you decide to continue it, really.

This story made me truly weep. You had me crying in the first chapter, and every chapter since, basically. It was extremely cathartic, so my only problem with it is that you haven't updated in months. I'm such a hypocrite to ask someone to update soon, when I haven't been faithful with mine, but this story has evoked so much emotion in me that I cannot help but beg you to write more soon. This story is heart wrenchingly beautiful, and magnificent. I cannot wait for more. Keep up the good work!

Please update soon! I love it! Xxx
| Bamon chapter 13 . 3/25/2013
Great story! I can't wait for more chapters to read.

So, I kind of kept skipping reading this for a while. Every time I'd see it, I'd mistake it for a different story with a similar description and premise (actually, since their story moved faster, it was more related to the description than yours is so far.)
Anyway, that story was kind of bland and I wasn't that interested, but then yesterday I stumbled by yours again and thought; "Well, I never did finish it. Maybe I'll give it one more go."
Yours is so wonderful! It hurts, the way a story like this really should.
I'm not sure I've said so anywhere yet, but one of my favourite things is when bodily functions come up or erogenous zones and sex characteristics and such get mentioned without any sexual connotation attached. So, thumbs up for a catheter and Buffy's nipples in chapter seven!
I'll admit that Willow's lecture on magic read like, well, a lecture. It felt a little info-dumpy and maybe a bit expositional. Dr Sato's talk about Spike and vampire physiology was similar, but because it was completely relevant it did not feel forced.
And, just, thank you for your attention to detail. You seem to have put a lot of time and effort into thinking out how in the world a vampire could possibly exist and you did manage to explain it in an understandable manner. (Unlike a certain tween author who shall remain nameless.)
Great story so far, and I am definitely looking forward to more.

The attention you pay to detail is astounding. You're going through all these little changes, the medical things that would need to change to bring someone back to life, and slowly, which makes it even more realistic.
Honestly, I like how slow its going (adds a sense of realism with the magic).
Admittedly, I feel like the Buffy sections are dragging out a little, especially in the last few sections. A lot of talking, not much data, you know? But that can change when they start figuring it out.
One question though. Why in the world hasn't Angel (or at least Wesley and Fred) told Buffy anything yet?
