I have never teared up over a fanfic before... but wow, the waterworks started during Illyria's dream about Wesley... and then Angel dying... Wow. I detest Angel (almost as much as I detest Riley), but his death scene was spectacularly written. Amazing piece, earned a 'favorite' from me.

I love after the fall stories because I always wonder how Buffy would react after seeing spike again...I mean in alt universe world without the comics which are fine intheir own way. Loved this story and I think you write very well...you get the characters down and your stories flow so well! I can't wait to read more!

*sniffle* That was beautiful.
You write Spuffy so very well, and yet it's always eclipsed by the way you write Cangel.
| rororogers chapter 3 . 6/15/2012

And this ladies an gentlemen was perfection. Touching, sweet and tad of sad. Very good. Very suitable. Nice.
| Emma Russo chapter 3 . 5/19/2012
Thank you for giving me the long-awaited closure I've been craving for since Buffy ended. Thank you. It feels like Christmas.
| PeaceHeather chapter 3 . 5/10/2012
This may be one of the most phenomenal reunion fics I've ever read. The Shanshu touch was absolutely beautiful and poignant. Lovely.
Have you considered sharing this over at Elysian Fields?
| JTellersOldLady chapter 3 . 5/6/2012
This was a brilliant story all together, i wish they'd of done a little 15 min extra on the last episode of angel, to atleast let spike see buffy one more time, they were perfect for each other.
Hope you write some more Spuffy Stories :)

You are by far the best author I've ever reviewed for! Not only did you write/post the last chapter quickly after I complained P, but you reply to all of the reviews you receive! I'm so glad I have been able to read all of your writings! Granted my motivation for school is lacking but I figure if I read quality writing I'll be okay!
Thank you so much for your stories, they are amazing! I can't wait for your next update and (hopefully future) story!

This story reminds me of a great book that I read many years ago titled "Death Be Not Proud". There is also a poem by the same name and until you wrote the passage about Angel's gift I had never looked at the prophecy that way! It's truly a brilliant decision and as for each of the other characters I truly love it! You also brought up a truly interesting cultural point whether you meant to or not. In our culture it's acceptable to miss birthdays and other celebrations of the living, but it's considered unacceptable to miss a funeral where all you do is pay homage to a shell. Better to honour those we love while they live than walk past their shells once their souls have departed.

An amazing end to a wonderfully done mini-series. I think you've written the best post-S7 BTVS, post-S5 AtS story I've read. I loved that everyone got a conclusion to their parts, whether good or sad for them. Such as the happiness of Buffy and Spike and their connection for the first time (they had had sex many times before, but this was the first time love was involved, and acknowledged, on both sides), Angel becoming human again and being able to be with Cordy, Wesley being able to reunite with Fred and the sadness of Illyria of losing Wesley, one whom she had come to realize had meant a lot to her, and the loss of the identity she once had and having to learn her place in this world.
For something that was only three parts, you wrote a piece that spoke volumes.
I can't wait to read whatever you update next. :D

Once again, a great story! Most of what I've read post NFA has been Spuffy, and I really enjoyed what you wrote for Angel and Illyria. I love your version of shanshu, that it is cyclical, never "used up." As always, your writing surprises me, and yet feels so right for the story. I was surprised when Wesley suggested that Angel wouldn't always be around for Illyria, but I didn't expect that you would kill him off so quickly. This is a topic that isn't really covered in fanfic-that shanshu means death as well as life; that it would make Angel susceptible to mortal wounds and, eventually, death.
Looking forward to your next work :-)
