George chapter 1 . 2/24/2010
Loved the story.

One minor objection though: Spike is in fact one of the most intelligent characters in BtvS. Look, he won two battles with Slayers, he survived several fights with Buffy too, he had the smarts to have Buffy filmed before he ever tried to fight her, etc. Just the fact that he survived so long proves that he's smart too.

A very plausible explanation for a bizarre plot contrivance! Personally, I always suspected that Riley was eeeeeevil...

Man, that just makes me hate Riley. And I shouldn't logically hate Riley (cause he was mostly a good guy), but I do.

A great spoof of the writer's inconsistancies and out-of-character actions/motivations in trying to make Spike a semi-villain. I know they told us it was his fault, and we're supposed to think so, but it just didn't come off that way. I was left saying "What the Hell?" not "OOh he's so evil and soulless." It's like the scenes that the writers thought they were writing isn't the scenes that th audience was watching.

I'd say you should send this to Doug Petrie ... except he'd probably think Riley was right. Thanks for attempting to make sense of the mess that was "As You Were." Very amusing and you captured exactly why I despise Riley Finn so much.

(In Mr. Burn's voice):Eeeeeeexcellent...
Kantayra chapter 1 . 7/18/2002
OK, this is the first fic I've ever read solely because the summary was so good, and I wasn't disappointed in the slightest. God, you've got Riley's dull style down to an art! And we all know that Spike wasn't really behind the egg fiasco anyway. It was *way* too convenient that Riley broke in right then with the perfect way to ruin Spike's life...

Keep up the good work!
