I really love this story. I enjoy seeing Buffy so in control and confident.

Good job on the Cantonese. It makes perfect sense. Only espanol would be as good. Then to add some variety, Russian. I have this idea of Buffy quoting love poetry to Spike in a language he doesn't understand. Or reading Brat'ya Karamazovy in high school.

I do wonder how Buffy's gonna take advantage of Halloween. That's a wonderful one-time opportunity to learn languages at least and maybe other skills or knowledge domains (math? psychology? foreign literature?). Especially since she's got the memory potion. She's probably got French, right?

Then also whether she's gonna guide her friends to take advantage of Halloween. Xander didn't actually use his memories much, although he *could* have. Or is she gonna get to Ethan before he sets everything into motion? (Though it ought to be safe enough if she hangs around his place just before he casts the spell.)

Hmm, a new twist? What's up with the Cantonese?

I'm not entirely certain, but I'm sure using the memory potion to help her with her homework isn't a particularly good use for it... I foresee trouble ahead if she comes to rely upon it too much! Can't help wondering why she's learning Cantonese...

Hm.. Why the cantonese?
Witchy Buffy might perhaps make some new mistakes; I just hope she get Spike back soon.. Maybe Spike was sent back too? It would solve things easily, and they could keep it secret for a while, to make the story more exciting. Or Buffy must wait for him to get dumped and chipped before she make her moove.. In that case, I hope the story fast forward some.. I want Spike reunion, with some angst and a happy ending.. I like your story, please keep it up..

Oh.. I know what I wish for.. Spike is sent back, but doesn`t know Buffy is back, so they spend some long angsty time trying to wait for each other and keep misinterpretting each other because none of them want to change history too much, in case it would bring them further appart..

Well, cannot wait to see what your plan is... You obviousely have something planned.. Just be kind to Angel, please?

Oooo.. can Spike try to relate and confine in Angel, if he is sent back from L.A?

Ok, I will just have to wait and see..

I'm looking forward to this talk with Joyce and Buffy.  I think she's going to handle it a lot better!

quite an interesting start! i'm looking forward to buffy re-writing her past - in hopes her future isn't quite so bleak. and atleast she's not going off all half-cocked about it; already she's thought her mother, and maybe, just maybe, she won't be able to save her, but she can spend as much time as possible with her. and here's to hoping she and angel come to a good friendship. and she's right about spike - when she first meets him, he's not 'her' spike. can she fight him while in love with him? and how will spike react to the 'new' slayer? so looking forward to more!

Congratulations!  There are lots of other stories about going back and reliving the past seasons, but you have managed to make yours fresh and new and exciting.  Good work!

I know you have 3 WIPS going on at the moment, so I can only cross my fingers and hope that you still plan to finish this one.

 *Just knowing it’s going to happen doesn’t necessarily give me the power I need to stop it.*
Very true, and I'm glad Buffy realises this from the start. Can't help thinking about ways the potion might end up making things complicated... magic always has consequences..
More please..

She put the clear, water-looking potion that can cause brain damage if over-used into a WATER BOTTLE???
OK, Buffy's not thinking too clearly here.  I hope she doesn't come home from the Bronze thirsty...

Actually, as I was reading, I thought how great it was that you built in problems with the memory potion.  I like that - you have made it useful and a problem all at the same time - that is very JW of you.   I also LOVE how you had Buffy realize she might not be able to change everything.  That makes it more interesting.  Good chapter!

Loved it..and the memory potion is just right. Enhanced sharpening will make it hard to miss the details and clues even if sometimes fate will be just fate.

Ah so Buffy had to bust her memory a little. But having this advantage (to remember) is something that will be very useful.
Looking forward if she can save Jesse too.

I love magic in these fics! There's always some logical and reasonable reason for the magic to do something crazy and unexpected. I can't wait to see what you come up with for the memory potion! Buffy gets trapped in bad memories? Buffy remembers Spike and all sorts of feelings crash over her? She is thinking about a fight and a bunch of other fights in her head distract her? Or something I could never guess?

I love Joyce recognizing something different in Buffy, and seeming to react as if Buffy isn't a ditzy sixteen year old, even if she doesn't know why. Buffy's POV in this story is also fresh and interesting without slowing down the narrative.

Thanks for updating and looking forward to more!

Happy about the update! I like all the ideas for your stories, though some of them seemed a little detached from how the characters think, but this chapter was really impressive. Buffy's thoughts and feelings were perfect, being old enough to be a different version of her, but fitting her personality and priorities very well. I like how you don't fill the chapter with paragraphs of description of irrational feelings or inward arguments, and the simplicity of your descriptions makes the action of the scenes and characters very real in my mind. Great job.

And Buffy kept her memories, even better. And very useful.

Well this is certainly under the headliner of second chances. I can not wait to read more of this. What is Buffy going to do different, how are events going to go? My bet is anything but smoothly. The future is already changing for Buffy.

Great first chapter.

Now that Buffy isn't hopelessly infatuated (read: moronically blind), I wonder how Buffy is going to deal when she realizes that the real reason Angel's sniffing around her is because the PTBs had offered her up to him as a kind of reward to one of the world's biggest sickos in order to get him on their side because of a cryptic and incomplete prophecy.

This is a very nice start! You certainly have an ambitious plan to go thru all the seasons!? Wow, and Timetravel stories are my favorite. Thank you for taking right back to the beginning again, everything feels so right... in the car with mom, bumping into Zander, Willows long hair, Sweet!  good job, and gods speed!
