This is simply amazing. You had me tearing up in parts and smiling in others. I so wish I could stay up all night to finish this! I adore how you write Spike so true to character and manage not to bash anyone. Brilliant story so far.

I love what you did here, the way Spike is gradually opening up and that Buffy is constantly teetering on the edge of accepting him. I can't wait to see Spike rocking back and forth between his natures as he tries to find a balance.

I absolutely loved this story! Sorry I didn't review earlier, but... I needed to keep reading...
Your writing is great and I love how in character you wrote everyone.
You did a perfect job with Spike! He was spot on bad ass at the start with a hint of gentleman. But the way he grew closer to Buffy was so in character and well timed that it was believable! And his transformation was so realistic! He was still the same lovable spike- but good. I couldn't believe it was the same story that started out with him kidnapping and threatening to rape her. But you wrote the changes so well I didn't even question it. I'm just surprised looking back...
And I like how you followed canon but improved it, like Joyce living- thank you! That was so unnecessary to kill her in the show. Also Riley, I like the way you handled that. Not trashing him but not letting that ridiculously bad pairing last or happen too much. And Xander stepping up to be the man for Anya was definitely of the good. Glad Tara lived, she didn't grow on me much but she didn't need to die- and I hated Kennedy. didn't like Dawn in the show but I actually really like her in this, great job!
This story had me laughing a lot, but also crying like a baby (or a crazy fangirl...). I was sad crying and happy crying though. I also love how you kept Spike's speech after Buffy gets kicked out. The small changes just made it fit more perfectly. Oh and the poems were great! Absolutely loved them!
As much as I worship Joss for creating Buffy, I don't know what the hell he was thinking with the last couple seasons. He kind of ruined everyone...
So I definitely prefer this version of events where people get to be happy. Thank you for writing it!
I'm sad that it's over, but now I'll go stalk your other stories and the ones you recommended.

Just read it from start to finish... and love it, love it! To me this type of representation of Spike seems more true to his nature Spike with a Bite...
