This chapter has its really funny parts, too! Love the scene with Spike shoplifting the candy bars and nail polish, and also the Spanish movie scenes!
Also, the sexual tension in this chapter between Buffy and Spike is killing me...in a very, very good way! :)

Wow, long chapter. Took me a bit to get through. Well good; Giles is getting the cavalry together,bitchy, girly-tweedman Travers is still clueless, and sparks are beginning to develop between our favorite duo. I love how you can write Spikes feelings toward Dry and Slayers/Buffy differently in each of your stories. I don't know how you do it, but then again, I don't know how math geniuses do it either, so I'll stop questioning now.

Go Wes with the subterfuge! He is getting really good at it. I love Giles on a rant. He went after Travers like a man possessed. Giles found some allies huh? He's going to need it. Travers is off his nut. I foresee a straight jacket in the man's future! Or at least an accidental death on the horizon for him. Once the rest of the council finds out what he is doing he is a goner. They won't be able to allow him to continue to live. He'll be too dangerous. A fatal car accident maybe? I wonder how willing to help Giles' new allies will be when they find out Spike killed those watchers? Hopefully when they learn the circumstances they won't go after him.
Joyce was perfect! I'm surprised she didn't grab her axe! So they aren't going to try to talk to Willow or Xander. That's good because I don't think they could keep up the pretense. They aren't that good at lying. Can I hope the council operatives working for Travers dust Angel? Because I wouldn't count on him not telling them that Giles asked him to hide Buffy away. They'll spin some story and Angel thinking he knows better will spill to 'Help' Buffy. Then Giles and the gang will be in more danger than they already are. All because Angel thinks he knows better than anyone. Plus if it gets out that she is with Spike? Holy crap Angel will go berserk! And probably get her killed.
Spike's concern for her goes beyond the bargain he made for Dru. He doesn't see it yet or won't admit to it but his words were very telling.
Oh they have got it bad. When innocent words take on naughty meanings your hooked. Spike is having second thoughts about curing Dru. There's an understanding happening between them. They don't like it and they don't want it. But it is happening. By time this is over that stupid "normal" crap Angel fed her will be long gone. Spike will help her find out who and what she really is. Buffy is figuring out that Spike loves. Loves like no other. Angel is the anomaly being unable to love without a soul. They are connecting in a way she never did with Angel. And I think Spike likes Buffy's brand of crazy more than Dru's. I don't think he'll be all that eager to cure her. He might do it just to give her that peace but not to win her back.

Awesome chapter. Your writing, as always, is so intelligent and witty and emotional.
I love the character of Spike. He is what drew me in to BTVS and fanfiction a year ago. When I read your stories, I always end up loving the character just a little bit more.
I loved the confrontation in the woods when Spike ambushed Buffy. I thought the whole confrontation was brilliant...the point he was trying to make, the whole concept he was trying to show her...wow. I loved it.
"It's beautiful! You just topped Maria and Stefan's reunion!" Loved that line. :-)

Haha typical male/female conversation. Woman: Men are jerks! Man: What'd I do?! Haha classic. Love this story.
| jewel74 chapter 9 . 11/3/2012
I am glad B&S are spending more time together.. training, watching movies, writing down similarities and most importantly talking.. explaining things to each other. The physical interaction, even limited, will lead to more sparks flying in the near future, I am sure.
But you know me, I love "build-up"s more than their resulting event, so I am very happy with what is going on now, smiling contently while reading all the adventures, the dialogues full of implications, the subplots.
| Blade Redwind chapter 9 . 11/3/2012
Loved it! As usual. The Buffy and Spike bits are tightening up. I felt like the transition with her and him in the woods was a little harried (the part where he jumped her). Not overall, just in that moment. I think it should have had a little more build up or drawing out... something. It was sudden and not... tense enough? I felt awkward. But, the chapter was overall very good. Nice flow, good dialogue, and you always capture young Buffy and love-worn Spike so, so, so well.
I'll be looking forward to the next installment.

I am so loving this story! And I love how Spike wigged out when Buffy started crying. Just like a man, can't handle a few tears. LOL
Please update soonest!
| ValidescopeWest chapter 9 . 11/2/2012
I think I love you.
That should say it all.
| mike13z50 chapter 9 . 11/2/2012
The plot thickens, Giles has found some allies. Go Joyce with the butt kicking!
Don't quite get what is going on with Buffy and Spike, but I know you have something good in mind.
| Alottalove chapter 9 . 11/2/2012
Oooo loved Spikes pep talk to Buffy about her slayer side, that was umm dark but quietly erotic. very well wtitten.
| cavemenftw chapter 9 . 11/2/2012
"It's beautiful! You just topped Maria and Stefan's reunion!"
My favorite. How could it not be this line.
There was some really good introspection there, and I dug the whole slayer side thing. Not just that she has one, but I liked the indicators within her own body, I like how you chose to portray it as a heightening of her own body's functions.
The stuff with giles at the end, very cloak and dagger. I love that this continues to be a recurring tone in your story.
Nice chapter. If there's one thing your two leads know how to do, it's hurt each other. In the show, in your fics, it's the element that drew me to the characters as a pair, in a coupley way or as a team. Only someone you care about can hurt you so quick.
