Wow - this fic came up on the "random fic" thing and I thought "what the hell". Now am very, very glad that I did, as this was a truly awesome story. Normally, I don't buy a turnaorund that fast, but you made work (extenuating circumstances and whatnot). Thanks for writing it.

Now that made such a better resolution to the Adam problem than they did on the series. Not only did we get rid of that pillock Riley sooner, but we had a little R&R in a different dimension for Spike & Buffy to get to know and trust each other away from all the self-righteous Scoobies. I just loved it. Don't suppose there's a season 5 sequel in the works by any chance? Please?

Wonderful story =D I especially loved your portrayal of Buffy--she was unsure of herself, but she wasn't whiny, she wasn't overly heroic, and she wasn't all that much of a bitch. Thanks for an awesome story!
Thanks! I enjoyed writing this Buffy as well as this Spike. I'm really glad you enjoyed it.

Great story! I loved the alternate dimension which gave them the chance to get to know each other. I like your version of the Adam story better than canon.
Thank you. I really have to give my beta props for the second half of the story. Her advice and encouragement really helped it take shape.

Beautiful story. I loved the whole Buffy/Damsel thing in the other dimension. It made Spike seem all manly. I love how you wrote him. Just great. Thanks so much for writing.
Thank you so much for the lovely feedback. I enjoyed showing the man in the monster in this fic.

Great story. I love season IV stories and you rewrote it very well.
Thank you very much. I really enjoy S4 stories too, because, when I watch them now, I can really see the beginning of the Spike/Buffy story.

lovely story, I really liked the ending. It sort of felt like two stories, other world and after other world, I enjoyed both.
Thank you. I'm very glad you enjoyed. You can thank my beta for the second half of this story. She's a stern task mistress and was not pleased with where it ended after they returned to Sunnydale.

Sandy, loved reading this again. It took me all day with the interruptions but it was fantastic. touched all those points I love, heroic Spike, soppy moments, hot smut, travel fics etc. A real gem!
Thanks, Megan. It's nice to know that you still enjoyed in on a second read.

Oh I hope nothing happens to Spike while doing it.

Chapter 16         
oh man....it's a tricky thing, isn't it? because if anything will prove to the gang that spike really cares about buffy, this might be it...and yet, i don't trust them enough yet to think that one of the scoobies (xander or giles) might not try to hurt spike while he's helpless...great chapter, love, looking forward to more

Chapter 13         
poor baby...she's so mean to him..though not so mean to him in this as she usually is...she's trying to do the right thing, but being with spike wouldn't be so bad, really, would it? even if he is still very recently evil? lol
great chapter, love, looking forward to reading more

Chapter 11         
oh buffy, buffy, buffy..stupid girl...sigh...
poor spike, but at least she's being relatively gentle with him, all things considered...usually she's a lot meaner when she breaks up with him
*pouts*
oh welll....onto the next chappie

"break up with one boyfriend because she was afraid she would never love him, and ...etc." Loved this capsule view of Buffy's feelings. And, I am truly enjoying this story.
Thank you. I always felt that Buffy *made* herself not love Spike in S6, and so these words really felt true to me.

OH she has done it now, so nice loving and she then turns him away.

03/22/2007 10:42 pm
Chapter 8         
i can totally understand why she did that...i mean, out of all the careless things spike said in the show, that one line about the other slayers is in my opinion the most cringe-worthy...
and yet, i feel for spike, because he doesn't understand what he did wrong, and he really does care about her...
great chapter, love

03/22/2007 09:29 pm
Chapter 4         
lol...love the dynamic between them...and if buffy really knew him she wouldn't be all that surprised...spike spent a century caring for drusilla...and before that it was his mum..he's a care-taker type, and it's natural that if he feels anything at all for her (which apparently he does) he would do those things for her...
silly bint ;P
great chapter

Loving it thx. :-)
