I just love this story and I so glad that I read it again - it's somehow just perfect on this Buffy Anniversary - so many years of by devotion to Buffy and then the Spuffy relationship. Being of a very mature age - I was much older than any of the Buffy fans at our Buffy discussion board, and so much older now, this "looking back with regrets" on all the mistakes made in our youth is such an emotional connection with your wonderful story.
I'm glad your gave them a chance to at least make something right at their last chance at life together.

It was great. It had drama, romance I really think you should write more. great mind.

There are tears splashing on my keyboard, but I am smiling. That is one of the most beautiful and poignant stories I have read. Poignant for the consequences of the mistaken beliefs and the irreplaceable missing years and the fact that he had a child he never knew, and yet a happy ending because he will know his grandchild and the lovers are now together. Thank you.

This is by far the most moving and emotional piece I have ever read, much more so than other fics that blatantly try to be bittersweet with character deaths etc. This is a truly great piece of writing. Well done.

so sweet and sad! I'm all teary eyed and almost cried around the middle:_)

Lovely and very romantic, I love this future fic and is among the best I've read. Keep up the good work.

you suck. everything you write is stunning and it's not fair. (it's not that i'm not *good* at writing, but i don't have the patience to develop characters so simply but deeply) you're amazing and i hope you know that. if you run for "ruler of all things buffy," i'll vote for you, joss is just screwing things up. ;)

That was great. Brilliant. I cried right along with them.
I'd almost like to see Spike meet Cassie, but then again, it's perfect just the way you left it. Wonderful work... :)

"Then you had better send for your things."
No more games, no more convolutions. A simple, sweet ending to an adorable story.

:( sniff sniff... stop making me cry! you're story is so good. it paints a picture that is so frightening, in reality, not just the show... the idea to loose so much time without love... i think i'll go cry again... keep up the good work

That was beautiful, even better than the first part. I know it says the end, but I'd love to see Cassie meet Spike.

Okay, I am totally typing through my tears. What a lovely poignant story. Oh God. The thought of Buffy living w/ Xander (whom I actually like, but do not ever want to be with Buffy) for all those years out of a sense of duty to Dawn, Emma, and even Xander himself. It makes me sad for both of them. I am anxiously awaiting the next chapter.
| tuowei chapter 1 . 6/12/2002
eeek! oh wow. that was very moving and sad. its veru well written, old and wise yet still young and distinctly buffy. and the processes, Xander,it made sense. But eeek! *cliff* *hanging* *fingernails breaking* please do continue.
