Wonderful alternative to the Initiative Arc - it's been really nice reading these earlier stories again.  
I'm glad you're enjoying them.

What was the promise?? Inquiring minds want to know! This was a great read. I so wish it had actually happened this way. I never liked Riley and Walsh. And Buffy pretending to be normal was awful to watch. Normal? First off there is no such thing as normal. There is ordinary and she was anything but ordinary. No slayer could be so why she tried so hard was beyond me.
I have no idea what the promise was. Some vampire thing. lol  Thanks for reading.

Great reading this one again -  having a good time reading some of your work again.

Love!  So i've been back on the good ship spuffy for a week and have yet to even make it away from your massive story list! I just can't get enough!  Your writing style, the amazing way you manage to find their voices and keep them so true to who they are... I bow before the master *bows down humbly*.  I hope I have made my adoration (and slight jealousy, hehe) plainly obvious to you. Wonderful

Christie
Hee!  Yeah, it's a pretty long list.  Maybe I should tell you which ones not to bother with?  Some of them are better than others...  But I'm glad you're enjoying them.  Thanks for telling me so.

Great Story - I always enjoy reading your work - and I really like that you had such a mysterious treatment for getting Angel to accept their relationship -  Nice to have something mature and different instead of some of the violence and machismo that so many of the writers have used.
Thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Just read this in one sitting and *loved* it!!  Well done on such a great, gripping, real, fun, funny, romantic and intelligent fic.  I've got my fingers crossed for a sequel...there's unfinished business I'd love to know about. Cheers. x

 You do know that this is one of the best Spuffy tales around.  I hope you get awards for this.  I'll like it even better if there is a sequel; we have to know what Peaches said and if there will be claiming/mating for our blondes.
Oh my. Thank you so much. I'm glad you liked it. A sequel is always possible, but not in the immediate future, I'm afraid.

 Really lovely.  I always hated how Angel seemed to think he owned Buffy even though he chose to leave, decided not to try to anchor that soul of his.  I am glad Buffy saw that aspect here.

Liked that Spike and Angel talked rather than fought.  That seems more in keeping in this story.

Excellent!

Fifteen - Can't We All Just Get Along?         
I liked this chapter very much. Spike was very real without falling into the stereotype of too sensitive or too defensive and mean or anything-- his time with Buffy and her reaction with the darkness covering them was great and natural for both, and then their argument wasn't overstated but fit them well and hinted at something vampiric Spike might need to explain later...

I can't wait to find out what the initiative is like in this fic, and how Riley and Maggie will treat Buffy. Especially what our volatile slayer will say to them when they think of her as a demon.
Thank you. I'm glad you liked it and thought it worked.

LOL I'd say she's definitely coming around. But it's Buffy... who knows when it's the Harsh Light of Day (lol) if she'll still be as comfortable with having a vampire for a boyfriend.

Yep, Buffy, you can't tug the boy to and fro...isn't fair. Good for Spike for not letting her be wishy-washy about the whole thing. She has to stick by her own boundaries if she wants to set them, lol.

"It is dark," he whispered, moving his lips from her palm to her wrist and nibbling his way up her arm. "No one can see us. We can't even see each other. Nothing but darkness here... we can be anybody we want to."

Loved the idea of that.  Loved the freedom that gave them.  And I love her trying to protect her dignity, and then giving up.  William has indeed left the building.    Awesome. 
Thanks. (and, does your reading it here mean I forgot to post this chapter at TSR?)

Gosh, how I love this story.  Wonder what Buffy will do with the knowledge that there was no spell on them when they got down and dirty.  She'll probably pull a typical Buffy maneuver and attempt to ignore it.
I'm sure she will, but you know Spike, he's isn't going to let that happen!

 What indeed, Buffy?  I think they are both hoping a bit too much that its the spell and ignoring the giant elephant in the room.  Ahhhhh for attraction and finally just going with the flow!

Well done chapter and your voices are spot on.  I can just SEE Giles and Willow rushing to research.  Nice and perfect for the season as well.

Ten A Gentleman by Any Other Name...         
I can't believe I initially dismissed this story, nor can I remember why.  This is fantastic.  Absolutely excellent.  Even better, it hits several of my personal favorite buttons.  It's a mid-series fic (I like seasons 4-5 best for Spuffy stories), there's great UST - well, perhaps not quite so "U" now - and they're actually admitting its there, even while they try to resist it.  It's a damn near perfect combination, as far as I'm concerned.  The use of Giles and Willow is great too, and I'm even starting to like Inkfel. I can hardly wait to see how they handle the aftermath of this chapter.
Just another post Something Blue Spuffy fic?  That's why I would have skipped it.  But thanks for giving it a try - I'm glad you're liking it.

Glad Spike went to Giles about it! Even if Willow does something before anyone talks to her, Giles will still see that something's off again. And then they can fix it, hopefully.

Heehee, love that Spuffy thinks it has to be the spell and nothing else natural. Cuz it couldn't be that they like each other now or share attraction.....nuh-uh.....

This chapter was just excellent.  I especially loved the dialogue between Spike and Giles.  It was funny when Spike was trying to say stuff without saying stuff.

"Yeah. Annoying. Can't be around her without sporting a... And it's not like she's immune to it! Makes it that much harder when I can hear her heartbeat go up when I touch her, that I can smell her—" The expression on Giles's face stopped him just in time.

I liked this bit above.  I also enjoyed the conversation between Buffy and Willow.  I really hope someone gets Willow under control because her messing with magic again is so not the solution.  Buffy and Spike are just obviously made for each other. 
I'm glad you're enjoying it. Thanks for telling me.

Oh dear...I do wonder if Willow will do something to "stop the wanting" only to have it backfire!!!  Ever helpful LOL.

Love your Spike voice, so very perfect given that time period.  Love Buffy at least admitting to herself (and Willow) that she notices the hotness that is Spike.  It never made sense for her not to notice as boy crazy as Buffy was shown to be early on.

Lovely,

Well that was an interesting night. Spike and Buffy are so flirting with each other.
They are. As Spike said, they're going to have to sort it out eventually. There is obviously something there - on both sides.

Another great chapter. I so like it when Riley gets his comeuppens.
Plus, I always thought that The Initative would want to 'study' Buffy the way they did everything else. I mean, honestly, I'm suprised they believed her "I'm not a demon' speech right off the bat.
Can't wait for more!
*nods* yes, you'd think Maggie would have wanted to know more about Buffy and her abilities before trying to kill her.  I would have expected her to want to find some way to use her.

I like this version much better than canon. I never understood how Buffy could have totally blown off the implications of that spell (Spike either although I suspected he did give it more than passing thought).

I also never understood why Maggie didn't plan a bit of poke and prod with Buffy knowing her to be supernaturally enhanced.  It didn't make sense.

Great college freshman voices for both Willow and Buffy throughout...very in character in that time.

Thank you. I'm glad you approve.   *nods* There is so much that can be done with season four to address issues that would have/should have been looked into.

Five - I Can Kill Demons!         
I really like your relationship between a chipped Spike and Buffy - hope that his relationship with Giles takes a MUCH friendlier path than the series did.  
Most of my early-season fics have a more reasonable Giles.  I don't remember if this is one of them or not. LOL

Four - Do I Know You?         
I can never get enough of new takes on season four.  I think you've struck a perfect balance with Spike and Buffy here.  I enjoyed Spike's tentative reaching out to Giles too.  I hope there isn't too much Buffy/Riley, though being a season four story, there must be some interaction for it to be believable.
Season Four is so fun to write - there are so many possibilities.   Not too much Buffy/Riley. She's already a bit discouraged with him....

Four - Do I Know You?         
I'm really enjoying this story; your  writing is very fluid which makes the story pleasant to read. 

You have done  a great job capturing the essence of the characters (mannerisms, speech patterns, etc.) .
Hope you can update soon!
Thank you so much. I'm glad you're enjoying this fic.  Another update on Thursday, I hope!

Four - Do I Know You?         
Giles is very funny and Spike too as he's mollifying Buffy that every vampire in the world is afraid of her.  Looking forward to the next chapter.
Thanks. Next chapter is about done. Should go up tomorrow. I hope. Good Lord and the electricty gods willing...

Okay - that wasn't really a dreamless sleep was it?

Buffy being coy and confused is much more likeable.
I think so too.   Thanks for reading.

Less sniping is good.

I always love seeing Buffy when she's not in automatic defensive, bop Spike on the nose mode. You know, when she can actually be honest with herself.
These last two chapters were pretty good. I'm hoping Buffy's prof (sorry, I forget her name) makes an appearence soon- her quest to get info on Sunnydale's 'other cultures' amuses the hell outta me.
Can't wait for more!
Thanks. I'm glad you liked them. I'm sure Dr. Inkfell is going to be back soon. She hasn't given up her quest to interview some vampires...

Woo... that was hot! Way to describe Spike's wet half naked yumminess. *swoons at the visual* And wasn't Buffy just being helpful? The scene where she was chcecking herself in the mirror and forgot about Spike was awesome, it made me giggle. Can't wait to see their relationship progress, you're building it up very nicely!
Thank you. Glad you enjoyed that little bit of Spike hotness.

Poor Spike, Buffy's really tough on him.

Well, she was during that season. But don't worry, she's softening up.

Neutered What? (ch. 2)         
That was hilarious! I loved the banter between Buffy and Spike, her Freudian slip was simply priceless.  Also very much enjoying the easy camaraderie between them and how Buffy for once isn't blinded by the great normalness of Riley and instead seems to be putting the pieces together. I loved it!!!
Thank you. I hope you continue to enjoy it.

great continuation = loved the talk about neutering and balls! so funny, so glad you kept this going.
Thanks. It's a bit of a challenge sometimes, getting those prompts in, but this one was fun.

You know Buffy, the prof would really be safer with Spike showing her around than her approching other random vampires for an interview. Let's face it, if this prof is anything like my prof, one student telling her to back off is not going to stop her research. lol
Great story.
LOL I suspect the Prof isn't giving up that easily - but what happens to her will have to wait until I can do another chapter to meet a Taming the Muse prompt. Thanks for reading. I'm glad you liked it.
