another wonderful chapter. Neither one of them really have a clue that their hearts are healing because of each other, not just dealing.

Just when you get used to intertia, something always has to come along and prod you. And it's so much worse when that "something" is you...

It's interesting to see how their thoughts are developing. I'm guessing Tim's going to turn into a problem at some point.

This is honestly my favorite Spuffy Fic I've read, very original, just completely fantastic! I can't wait to read more! Are they going to go back to Sunnydale together? Will Dru come back for her Spike? Can it just be sunshine and roses and fluffy life forever now? I don't really care, I am just excited to see what else you have in store!

Good chapter, sounds like Buffy is getting ready to go back to SunnyD. I wonder what Spike will do.

Aaah, some almost peace to start this chapter felt good. The slow ramp up to the not quite desperate angst and confusion of their twin situations felt natural. A slow trek up a hiking trail, not a rollercoaster.
It all just feels like this nervous tension, that keeps any other emotion or mood from completely saturating any given moment.
I keep forgetting how young Buffy is here, It'll be interesting reading, seeing how this slightly younger not to mention at her most emotionally crippled (that may or may not be accurate, maybe this is just the most emotionally damaging event of her life. She sort of let's these things build and fester) Buffy deals with this situation.
As opposed to a Buffy that has gone through, and at least somewhat dealt with her first big emotional/life crisis.
In most situations Spike is the guy who completely gets a situation, know what everyone's feeling almost likely thinking. I like that Spike. But the other side of the coin is the insecure mess. Damaged, emotional, volatile. The first is the side that everyone sees, the second is what I felt connected Buffy and Spike. Emotionally they were always very similar. They got each other in a way no one else got either of them.
This Is what I think you portray so well. This piece especially. It's the two of them at the turning points of their lives. Both are on even footing and both are at the same point emotionally but If there was ever a time when Buffy and Spike could've been real allies without all the bad, I think this is the time.
Oknthis is turning into some sort of rambling thesis. Really I just meant to say good job, and I appreciate the work you do.

Oh, please say that will just run away into (or slightly after) the sunset and live happily ever after...please?(squeeky please?) I know, never gonna happen with these two, but a girl can dream, right?

So they are each thinking some deep thoughts. It usually happens after being so miserable for so long. When you realize you aren't miserable any more you try to figure out what changed. Without the scooby interference they are seeing that they make good couple. No one telling them it's wrong but their own minds. So they get to work through it. No one judging them, making nasty comments or trying to interfere.
I wonder what's up with Tim. Is it just fear of Spike or does he have some interest in Buffy?
Only a few last hurdles, falling in love, admitting it and being certain the other wont leave. And that's the biggest one. The falling in love is something they both do very easily and not always to their benefit. But the leaving thing they have both been burned by it and that is their biggest fear. Neither one could stand it if one of them left. That really would be the end. Even at this stage of their relationship.

Once again you have done a remarkable job with the pacing and imagery of this story. I enjoyed this chapter very much.

And let the healing commence!

I'm loving this story!

*content sigh* I love chapters like this. Feel so warm and fuzzy. I'm glad our two heros are finally starting to enjoy themselves. Now here's the question of the day - is Angel going to claw his way out of hell soon and spoil the fun?
| rororogers chapter 12 . 7/28/2012
I was wondering if someone was going to complain about the noise they had to have been making. So totally a Mr. and Mrs. Smith thing but I loved it, it fits Spuffy too.
| teddybear-514 chapter 12 . 7/27/2012
I'm so glad that they are healing.

-"The very picture of a centerfold for Beaten Up But Hot Magazine." Awesome.
-Liked her staring at the light fixture for their second round. Very Fast Times at Ridgemont High. :)
-Wrecking the apt. and going out for spackle is like 'their song'
