A Small Light in an Endless Night Pt I         

Just finished reading chapter 18. . . .really good!!!    Please tell me that is not where it ends!     Does Spike really come back, or is his return only to be hinted at???  

Also, what is going on with Angel. . . .I just never really liked him at all, and don't really trust him, soul or not!     I guess I have issues with him!    Spike was always my favorite character in the show, so maybe I'm just prejudiced against Angel.   

Any way, I truly enjoyed reading this, and I hope to read more.

Thank you for sharing your talent with the rest of us.

I just read this story thru and absolutely loved it! I love the relationships restored and the love and support between everyone. I like that Xander isn't evil here but hope he doesn't go all nuts about Spike when he returns. Yeah...reading a DoS story with evil Xander...have to be honest. Have to say, Angel is wigging me out and if Buffy is pregnant what will he do? I am on tenterhooks here. You are a fabulous author and I will be checking very often for updates to this story...
Kim
Thank you. it's going to tie in with my other story, Every Night. Every Night takes place before Your Heart so I'm concentrating on that one for the moment and then I'll head back to Your Heart.

I'm glad you liked it thus far and thank you for the wonderful compliments!

I got all teary eyed when Willow found the picture of Buffy with her mom and sister and again when Buffy found Mr. Gordo. I am really looking forward to what happens next with the necklace and the situation Buffy is in. Thanks so much for the update, I really enjoyed it.
Buffy is so due for some small kindnesses at the slightest and giving her Mr Gordo was the least I could do.

First of all, I've got to say that getting a new chapter of this fic to read is enough to make me do the happy dance. So glad that Buffy found some pictures and Mr. Gordo. That was a sweet, emotional moment. Now, please tell me that Spike is about to make an appearance courtesy of that necklace. This cliffie is gonna kill me. Please hurry with the next update!
^^ Thank you so very much. Spike is next chappie and the cliffie is so worth it...promise.

You've updated! Thank you so much. You don't know how much I've missed this. I'm so looking forward to Angel getting his. He's so arrogant to think that he got away with it. Like he didn't do anything wrong. Hey! that's cheating! You didn't mention that he would show up in part2. That's just an evil way to have a cliffie. Mr. Gordo! Yay! they found Mr. Gordo! Thanks for having them find a picture of the Summer's women. Is Spike going to be corporal? or not? Oh please update soon, don't make us wait!!!*looks with puppy dog eyes* So excited, Thanks again, great read.
Lots more coming. Chapters still waiting to be proof-read before being posted^^

You've got me totally hooked on this story. While, I can hardly wait for Spike to show up, I think the pacing of the story is perfect; unhurried but not stagnant, a sort of reflection of Buffy's emotional state - she's deeply grieving but slowly moving forwards. I also like your characterizations of Angel and Faith in this story. Angel - creepy, stalkerish, possesive, a little scary - is also sympathetic. Faith is naturally wary, but she's trying to make real connections and growing up.
Please, please update!
LOL Thank you! Glad you are liking it. It will be finished soon. I have to get the first part of the series out of the way first

Just discovered this fic. Very interesting, definitely different storyline. Love the way you're exploring the emotional depths of all these characters. Gotta say that Angel's weird mood swings are creeping me out. Can't wait to find out what's going on there. And really, really want to know if Buffy's carrying Spike's child. Especially anxious for Spike to make an appearance. You won't be all evil and keep us hanging for much longer, will you? lol

Faith's prayer and the pain and fear it showed made me cry. I really like the thoughtfulness that Buffy showed in thinking of Giles and his loss as well. What an emotionally powerful chapter, thanks for the updates.
Just goes to show, those that seem the hardest and most in your face tend to be those with the most to hide.

Excellent chapter. Lost of heightened emotions.

I think Faith and Robin are going to be okay, and since he heard her, he's prepared now for when she does tell him. Their story is so sweet and tender.

In contrast to the sorrow, guilt, etc. that's all washing over the Scoobies again at seeing what they did to their hometown....it's a horrid mess. I hope they find things worth keeping. I always thought it was silly not to load their most precious possessions into the bus before the battle. There was no guarantee they'd be able to go back to the house afterwards.
Well they had no clue that the town was going to fall into a huge crater.

Giles and Robin simply thought to give everyone a couple changes of clothes and a few personal things just in case their plan backfired and they had to get the hell out of dodge to regroup.

Faith is so due for sweet and tender. She's never really had that in her life and she's always kept everyone at arms length.

Her story is going to come out very soon. Just about everyone is going to have their lives spilled out for all to see...the good, the bad and the ugly. Think they're all gonna come away unscathed?

07/30/2006 01:21 am

great chapter. loved robin listening to faith pray,and her realizing that she loved him. can't wait for more...

Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep         
Glad for Faith, that was Robin's reaction. It will definately will be easier on her with his love and support. So many memories, So little time. Good thing that Angel went with Giles, less chance of him trying something with her when no ones looking. The tree was definately a reminder of her past from Angel to Spike and the back porch where they spend many hours talking or in silent repose, hope it's also there for her. Good memories. Wonderful update. Thanks for the great read.
Yes, but will Robin admit to overhearing her and why was he looking so sad as he overheard??

More soon

07/29/2006 10:52 pm
Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep         
Hmmm. Mommy Faith. What a development. What will Buffy find at her house? Is Spike there waiting for her? More story please.
I love Faith. She was one of my faves even when she was a bit psycho.

As for the findings, not really sure. We'll have to see.

07/29/2006 09:10 pm
Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep         
i'm so glad robin reacted like he did so far, though faith needs to know that he knows, and he still loves her...i feel so bad for buffy, how traumatic for her...can't wait to see what they find
You are so sweet! I love reading all of your reviews! ^^

Wait until morning...morning is gonna bring A LOT of surprises.

There is such sadness with Faith’s uncertainty over how to prepare for a slumber party. I love how Dawn was able to include her and make her feel apart of things without it seeming unusual.
Yeah, poor girl had it rough. Now that the Scoobies have gotten ahold of her, there's gonna be a whole lot more changes for the dark slayer.

Really well done capturing the emotions of the three Scoobies.

I'm so happy for Faith! It's great that she's finally getting these experiences.

War zone/disaster area...I want Spike to hurry up and come! Buffy needs protection, as well as all the other stuff.
Poor Faith is in for an emotional rollercoaster.

Spike soon! ^^

07/29/2006 05:21 am
Lost & Found Part II         
good that Angel's not all creepy, stalker guy around Buffy during the trip. Not a Faith fan but since she's had a hard life(most of it her own making) glad that she's having some before she had to contemplates motherhood. Buffy should be haunted by the memories of the best thing that's ever been in her life. thans for the update. another gret chapter.
Kinda hard to be creepy guy when there are witnesses around

Angel is gonna take a small turn for the worse really really soon.

Eh, as for Faith, her lefe before she was calling was not of her doing. What she did after, yeah she has a lot to atone for. Still...forgiveness is divine

07/29/2006 04:34 am
Lost & Found Part II         
wow..i love your faith...she's so hurting and broken, but finding healing slowly but surely...i have a feeling when she *does* tell robin, she's going to be in for quite a surprise at his reaction and a good one i hope great update
I've always loved Faith. Even when she was all evil and I was wanting to punch her out, I could still see the vulnerability and the longing in her.

She just made me want to tug her into my lap and spank the daylights out of her before rocking her gently (and no, not in the pervy way).

07/29/2006 03:44 am
Lost & Found Part II         
another great chapter. loved the dawn/faith bonding. Can't wait to read more about sunnydale findings. and spike
We are gonna see a lot of the old Faith, but with it, we are gonna see a lot of the newer Faith too.

She's got a big plotline about to come up.

Spike in the next chapter or two ^^

Lost & Found Part I         
Faith is pregnant, with her past I can just image how scared she might be at the whole situation, in particular being the same type of parent her mother was.
Faith's past is about to be revealed and we get to find out exactly why Faith turned out the way she has.

She's a favorite of mine. I could relate to her on so many levels so I decided to bring her to the front and give her her due.

07/28/2006 06:54 am

Nice to see you back.

Faith's got her confirmation...

And the team's on the drive to Sunnydale...still want to know what the heck's up with Buffy...and why Angel's leaning towards this side of evil when it comes to her.

We miss Spike, too, Buffy.
Thank you! ^^ Already have most of the next chapter hammered out so look for another update really soon.

I think Angel's dealings with Wolfram and Hart are giving him some serious side effects.

Spike soon! ^^

excellent update...love faith's part...i always had a bit of a soft spot for her, she was so broken, in spite of her facade...wonder what mommyhood will do to her, cant wait to see
Same here. Faith is gonna play a good part in this first part of the story.

A lot of things will be found out about her and she is going to have a long, tough battle to face.

No demons more dangerous than the personal ones.

I really like how the back story you gave for Faith explains perfectly her desire for love and acceptance and her fear of letting anyone to close. I loved her reaction to Robin's declaration it was so sweet. Robin is so good for her. The slayer dream was very interesting. Thanks for the update.

Dear Diary         
Did he actually do it, or did he just dream it? And if Buffy was raped, wouldn't she have felt it when she woke up? Plus, the bite on her neck?

Please, no...
She might have...then again she might not have. Slayer healing and all that...any aches and pains she winds up with pretty much burn themselves out rather quickly....

...besides, she was unconscious and got hurt in the process...she might have jotted any unusual owies down to her slip and fall...

I really enjoyed this chapter. And the Buffy-Giles moment was very sweet. I hope she figures out what is going on with herself soon. And I hope something happens with Angel soon, he is being even more cringe worthy then usual.
Yeah, Buffy and Giles are both emotionally reserved with certian people, including each other.

I figure with everything theyve gone through, by now, a hug shouldnt be too difficult to manage

The thing is...would you all kill me if the Daddy wasn't Spike? After all, the first 3 days after the Hellmouth closed, Buffy and Angel were around each other constantly and Angel has been doing some questionable things...

And Willow, if you're having dreams you think really mean something? Don't put off following what they want you to do. You guys are in the saving the world business, after all. Better to be safe than sorry.

And Buffy dressed to impress, eh? Well, it's nice that she's out with Faith.
Yeah, now if we could just get her to gain the weight back that she lost...

I love that Buffy realized that her father doesn't hate her, and that she and Faith are getting along. I really hope that Angel somehow or another gets caught for sticking his nose where it doesn't belong. His complete disregard for her privacy is horrible.
Faith is going to get the chance to become the girl she never got to. She'll still be mouthy and in your face but she'll also realize the softer parts of herself that no-one bothered to see or nurture.

Good chapter.Stupid Angel reading the letters.Either Buffy's pregnant(which was my original thought)or she's under a curse. Can Faith and Robin get engaged?I love those two together,even if he did try to kill Spike.Update soon.
This is gonna be a huge story. its gonna cover everyone at some point or another.

Big twists coming up in the next few chapters.

Cool chapter. Angel needs to be smacked up side the head with a mallot. Can Buffy please catch him doing something bad?
I agree. Buffy's head seems to be a bit lost in her memories of Spike.

Hopefully now that her Father is owning up to the things he did wrong, Buffy will be able to see things more clearly.

Interesting about all those letters. Was money contained in any of them? Angelus is becoming dangerous again.
Angelus has always been dangerous...he's just been somewhat contained...

...for the moment...

Uh-oh!

When will we get to why Angel's reacting so strongly to what's in her blood? When did it get there?
Soon...muahahaha

Thanks for the great update I hope those letters help Buffy with her anger at her father. And I really hope that Angel will be able to controll his demon before things go to far. I can't imagine Buffy being to pleased with him if he doesn't.
Buffy and Dad definitely need to have a looooong talk.

Too bad the 'run away' complex was learned from the best of teachers...her Father...

love the update. had to remove the first attempt to comment. my major dislike of angel was causing my comments to question why this,why that? so... i am an idiot. i enjoy the way you tell your story and then i am going to tell you how not to do it. that makes me an idiot. thanks for the fine read.
Heehee...its my job to keep you on the edge wondering WTF is she thinking!!!

More to come soon^^

Just realized there were two chaps. in the update, so I'm reading this one after the last.

Buffy's pregnant! Oh, cool...when's Spike popping up?
Tut, tut...Buffy's sickness and the darkness in her blood might not be related.

A pregnant Buffy? Hmm..there's a thought...

04/20/2006 07:02 pm
Cleveland rocks!         
Evil, rotten cliffie writer! I just got caught up with this story and am wondering why they went to Cleveland instead of Florida. Still have no idea WTF Hank is. More story please.
Muahahaha....got to tell the story as it swirls around in my brain.

I have a seperate pages with all of these ideas..its funny really. I started out with this story in my head and as I picked over parts of it, my mind took me on little detours here and there, thus giving the whole story an actual plotline and as believable as the actual lives Joss himself created with the show.

More soon

I loved this chapter and how it caught us up on where the Scoobies are. But the real questions are: why is Buffy sick, and who is the vampire. I have guesses on both counts and am eagerly awaiting to see if I am right.
Oooooh...there's gonna be some MAJOR Scoobies action coming up soon. (be forewarned though..gonna be a LOT of angst too) but its all for the best...muahahaha

Wow you managed with just a few sentences to completly show the depth and reason for Buffy's pain and her anger at her father. This whole chapter was great, and the reason behind why Hank is the way he is was unexpected. Thanks for the great update.

whoa... Hank's a vamp? how come Buffy forgot? how come Angel not sense him? how come Buffy didn't notice? is he evil? oh common don't killl us with all this suspense.
Sometimes traumatic events get locked away in our subconscious, as is the case with Buffy. It was the beginning of her emotional wreckage...Angel wasnt the first guy to scar her and break her heart.

Whoa! I wasn't expecting that! How come no one was able to pick up that he was a vampire? And when was he turned? I remember seeing him in the sun when he came to see Buffy in the Nightmare episode.....hmmmm...does he have a ring or amulet or something? Loving the story!

Well...that's...okay, how was he a vampire and not trying to kill his family? I don't think Hank the shmuck would have resisted having that kind of snack if he was turned.
yeah but knowing his history it shows what a spinless turd he really is...I mean come on...when youre 14 year old daughter can kick your ass, you really dont want to have to explain any bruises to the ER doc

woo hoo! go Buffy...lol, great update!

03/13/2006 02:42 pm

Why did Angel's report state that he only had one daughter? Why did they leave out Dawn? Or is Dawn not Hank's kid? hmmmm...that would open up a whole new can of worms now wouldn't it?
Loved that she punched him! Stupid mob connected deadbeat rich dad! She didn't hold back on her slayer strength did she?
Yeah she did...a bit...couldn't break him yet cause he's gonna be around still a bit

This has been an interesting story so far, and Buffy’s response to her father was perfect. I am very curious as to the reasons behind his current actions and his previous non-actions. I found Angel’s reactions to Buffy very interesting, his response to Spike in her blood, and his thought of reclaiming her. I am looking forward to reading this story, and I hope you update soon.
Updating soon Claiming abound soon...some without permission even!

Okay, he seriously deserved that.

Still hinting at something left behind by Spike, eh? Going to be interesting when he shows up 19 days after the Hellmouth implosion.
Yeah he did because that is sure as hell what I would have done to my 'dear ol dad' had the circumstances been the same.

Who Killed John Gotti?         
i like the way you're writing angel..it's realistic,no bashing...i feel bad for him at times, and hate him at times...but just because of the annoying git that he is, not because you're making him out to be totally evil or something great update
Yeah...unfortunately I kinda like Angel but Im not gonna paint him out to be a hero or anything.

I want him to be as realistic as possible...with just a little Angel bashing for good measure

03/03/2006 03:25 am
Who Killed John Gotti?         
Psycho much Angel? Or should we say Angelus? He is really acting weird and I don't trust him at all! I can't wait to see what they found out and what happens at the meeting!

*possessive growl at angel*..stay away! she's spike's!! it makes me mad how he was drinking her blood like that without her knowledge and is not being honest with her...grrr...love your writing of faith, by the way

03/01/2006 02:34 pm
Something Darker         
So does this mean that Spike claimed Buffy? Or is he now part of her due to the amulet? Or am I totally off base as to why Angel was tasting Spike in her blood? And can I just say ewwwwwww....what was Angel thinking?! Buffy would have kicked him into next week if she had woken up and Angel was sucking on her cut! Is he even going to tell Buffy what he did and what he sensed? Can't wait to see what happens next!

Ugh! Wait til you get to see the side of Hank no-one knew about. Unfortunately, he's going to be pretty prominent to this storyline.

Hmm..maybe at the end I can have Anya reborn as the vengence Demon she used to be and grant Buffy a very interesting wish...

Wow, this is a twist I haven't seen anywhere else yet, Hank Summers suddenly showing an interest. Interesting start, you've got me hooked. Update soon, I'd definitly like to see where this one is going.

*Oh, one quick thing, the epilogue thing threw me a bit. Is that supposed to be prologue?
lol jbj said the same thing.

I used an epilogue because it was the end of Chosen. Since that story was over, I used the ending to lead into a brand new story. Sorry if it's confusing everyone

And yeah...Hank's been a busy, busy boy.

02/28/2006 05:44 am
When a Stranger Calls         
Really interesting start! I look forward to reading more.
Just one thing... do you mean prologue? An epilogue comes at the end of a story... not the begining.
I figured that was going to throw everyone off a tad.^^

I put the very beginning of this story as an epilogue. It was the end of Chosen so I used it to lead into a whole new story.

Hmm...maybe I should just go ahead and make it a prologue...

...aaaaaanyhooo...more to come^^
