I'm sad to see this is over. I feel like they just got to the best part. *goes to look for sequel*

Awwwww. Lovely, sad, and stirring game, though I'm very pleased that Spike figured out how to turn that frown upside down! Probably.
This was lots of fun.

I just LOVED this story! You write the characters in perfect voice and convey their separate but mutual pain so vividly. The quid-pro-quo ending was masterful. Beautiful, real and romantic.

I really loved this; it was an interesting take on things! I hope to see more out of the box stuff like this in the future, but then again, I love whatever you write, so I'll just say I can't wait to read whatever you post next! ;)

Beautifully written! I really hope you're going to do a sequel with the 'whoever makes the other player happiest wins' game. Oooo, so many questions, so many promising scenarios. Will Buffy surprise herself and him in this game? We all know that Spike is very good at giving whatever his significant other needs, but can Buffy learn and maybe teach him a few things in the process? Even if you don't, very touching story, and I'd be glad to see you post something else sometime soon.

really good overall, no preservatives!

Love the new story! Even with the T rating, this is one of the best Spuffy stories out there! Ok, I gotta get back to reading ;-)

Wow this amazing, i love it! Your writing is so much like how the characters are in the tv show, you have hit the nail on the head :D please keep hammering :) I love the use of 'Spiffy' classic and so clever :) keep up the amazing work, please!

Very nice, A fairly depressing, though kinda humorous piece, gets a pretty sweet and maybe hopeful ending.
A pretty real look at Buffy during during a period where she was just starting her downward spiral that lasted through season 6. I gotta say, it was during this time period where I really began disliking the core Scoobys.
Okay that was way off topic at the end there.
The Spike from season 5 was a much more sweetly smitten (though still kinda warped) than what it turned into later, and I think you pinned down that feeling pretty well.

Love the ending!

Why this site continues to change its programming all the dang time ...
Sorry, I've been trying to post a review on the last few chapters for a while now, but ff is giving me a fit. Soooo ... I think you stayed solidly in "T" territory, which has to be a record for someone who gets these 2 characters so well. Loved the game. Loved Spike's "solution" at the end too. But loved two little words most of all: "Blondie." "Bear." Wheeeee!

I love the last few lines. This was a lovely story.
| DLillith21 chapter 4 . 6/27/2012
Very nicely done. Buffy's speech in the last chapter about how her dreams with Spike were the best thing she had left, so heart breaking. Spike reading her and knowing how to respond so as to not drive her away...perfect. You have a monopoly on heart-wrenching inner monologue. :)

He is nothing if not persistent! Maybe Spike can break through the walls she has built up.

If only Buffy was portrayed with that much self awareness ever. TV Buffy was by the end mostly depressing, and Comics Buffy has regressed to season 3 Buffy. The writers don't give the girl too many honest moments.
In regards to the story, your voices remain very good, in fact this is my favorite Spike voice I think you've done.
You capture the struggling, the desperation os soulless Spike pretty well.
As for the game, Spike could have turned that last point around with a "try hearing the woman you can't live without tell you why she's never going to love anyone again...". Something like that, but that may be repetition of an earlier point.
The circling nature of the argument has me a little loopy.
