Yay, schmoop! I approve.
What's Christmas without schmoop?

Just read this at work, but didn't have time to write a review.  Loved it!  Simple and short, but your characterizations were dead on and, like many other reviewers, I thought it rounded out both shows perfectly.
Thank you so much. I'm glad you liked it.

I LOVE THIS!! Christmas schmoop, what could be better. I shed a tear, I really did. I love it. *happy, happy Spuffy sigh*. See, why don't people get Spuffy? It's just right...Okay, back to the

Damn it, why didn't Joss have you writing the show instead. This would have been the perfect way to close both shows!
LOL - the man just wouldn't listen to me. What can I say? Thanks for reading, J.

What a delightful story! The fact that readers would figure out immediately who it was and then read in great anticipation waiting to find out how Buffy and Dawn would figure it out just made it even more fun!
Thanks. I'm glad you liked it.

I just read your story today simply because it yours. I love all your stories and when I feel blue, I just go and read one of your tales. You always bring me up.
Oh, that is so sweet. Thank you so much for saying so. Some of them aren't quite so happy though - be sure to read the summaries or warnings...

Thanks for the early Christmas present SMS. Wished it really went that way. Ebay, who'da thunk? Great Fic.
Hee! Thanks. Yes, sigh, so do I (wish it had gone that way).

Awww. Sniff, sniff, sniffle. Awwwww. Merry Christmas dear lady and thanks for the present you just gave us with this sweet story.
You're quite welcome. Thank you for reading and commenting.

Very nice. Dawn is a little slow not to have picked up on the fact that it was Spike from the e-mails, but then again it's not like she could think rationally about it. Loved the reunion between all of them, and Dawn's deciding to not be such a brat about things.
She was a little slow - I cut her some slack thinking she may not have known anything about the line of Aurelius, and of course she thought Spike was gone, so wouldn't necessarily have suspected that it was him using British insults.

Okay...JUST what the doctor ordered for instant Christmas cheer! Love this and insist that from now on it is what really happened. LOL

Merry Christmas to you too, indeed. Thanks for this lovely present.

AAAHHHHH!!! Bring on the shmoop. I loved it. Buffy saying yes over and over was just so sweet. More, more, more, PLEASE.
Hee! That was it. One shot - happy Christmas ending. Thanks, though. I'm glad you liked it.

S. Aurelius? The British swearing? Yeah, seriously clueless today, Dawn!

I'm much with the grinning, and whooped when she read his message in the box. Hee! That was great!
Yeah - should have been a dead (no pun intended) give-away, but when you don't think it's possible... I'm so glad you liked it.

I like Christmas schmoop. Especially ones that remind me of Something Blue. Nice telling of an original concept.
Thank you - Christmas is the time for schmoop, don't you think?

Oh, I loved it! The first Spuffy ebay fic I've read. I loved how Dawn didn't know it was Spike, but he figured out it was her.
I'm so glad you liked it. Dawn was a bit clueless, wasn't she? But, then, she had no reason to think he was alive (so to speak).

Very sweet. And very true-to-life, too. I recently participated in a very similar eBay auction, so I know just how Dawn felt.
Thank you. And, I'm so sorry about your experience - I take it didn't end with the other bidder showing at at your door with the object?
