Really enjoying the story so far. One of the best parts of Spuffy is how they enjoy being snarky with each other, your story captures that beautifully. Looking forward 2 more.

Oh, oh. I knew that at some point Travers would have to realize that Buffy was alive but it was still a bit upsetting, especially as he'll be able to use magic to find her!
I was shocked (my jaw literally dropped) when Giles suggested the possibility of killing Faith! There's some interesting things at play here. Just how far can one ethically go to protect someone they love, especially when that person is capable of saving the world? I liked this exchange between Giles and Wes:
Giles nodded, unspeaking. "Perhaps when we're desperate- we're more ourselves than ever. Ha. Sad. At heart, I do deals with devils, I steal cars, I fake deaths, I endanger youngsters, I consider ending the life of someone I once I tried to help..."
"You protect an innocent woman, the world's champion, and spare as many people as much pain as you can." Wesley moved into the kitchen, began searching out tea things. "You have dark thoughts, just like all of us."
Liked seeing Spike and Buffy spar together and that she enjoyed not having to hold back. Also liked the touching conversation between Willow and Buffy and I'm glad that you keep throwing in small reminders about all the others who died during the fight at graduation. I feel so bad for Willow and Xander since they have to hide all this from their partners. Hope things don't go badly for them because of it.
I like the connections being made between Buffy's reaction to her failure and Spike's memories of his mom and was thrilled to see that their fights are evolving to a more personal level. They definitely know exactly what to say to hurt the other the most, which shows how similar they really are.
The scene with the Larkins was too cute, and I really enjoyed the Spuffy conversations afterwards. They've definitely reach a new step in their relationship. Curious as to why Spike said he used past tense and said he "loved the girl." Just a slip? Had to laugh when he kept trying to change their names.
Glad you are taking time to develop the story and their relationship before adding any smut scenes, but thanks for the image of Spike wearing nothing but tight, wet jeans! ;)

The big brother of the deer! See, Spike is sharing my concern about the forest animals.
A suburb is not a suburb when you do not socialize with your neighbors. So, they are going to act like a couple, and do couply things.. like.. well, I do not want to imagine anything.. yet. I know you will find a way to surprise me again.. and again.. and again.

Giles is a genius.. well, actually you are a genius. Making them fight over nonsense first, then threaten them with destruction (of the magical item and clothes!), finally force them to sit together and make a list of similarities.
Oh, that is a wonderful way to start a friendship.. and love is friendship set on fire, as someone said. Besides, all good friendships start with fighting, with a spark.. a strong feeling. So, yay :)

OMG! Three chapters to read, am I in heaven?
Now, where to start..
You are going to make Buffy drive by the end of this story, that is a good development ;)
The incident in the forest and its aftermath was so funny. Is he going to hunt again? What if all the forest animals team up against our dear Spike and do something nasty?
Hurrying up to the next chapter to learn the answer..

The Johnsons are adorably cute and hilarious. Lovin Wesley's character as well.
| Seapea chapter 7 . 10/29/2012
They're warming up to each other now. The fun begins.
| cavemenftw chapter 7 . 10/29/2012
Strong chapter. The suspense was tangible, Buffy and Spikes back and forth was both exceptionally crisp, and pretty damn fun.
I love the way you do the building toward the Climax of your stories. I'd put this one only behind "Living conditions".(though the fact that that story was so so contained, is advantageous to that goal.)
Also, (I dont know that you'd notice, but I use also as a post script.) The word Toe-rag as an invective, pretty much the most awesome thing ever, and you seem to have a fixation on Spikes' abs.

Wow. Great chapter. I love that Buffy and Spike are learning to coexist. Thanks again for sharing. You rock! ;-)
| Rachel chapter 6 . 10/29/2012
