I like this ending soooo much better. I also prefer non-depresso, guilt-ridden Buffy.
Thank you - glad you liked it.

HOW AWESOME!

thats was great! I always hated that episode, I could never figure out what exactly their purpose with it was. Yea so Riley found out but they didn't explain anything else,, who this all important Doctor was.. why Spike had the eggs,, NOTHING just HERE YOU GO... It makes no sense but here it is!

thank you!
Thanks. Glad you liked my version.

Delicious story. Spot-on characterisations and has the crypt ever sounded more enticing? I do love a good Riley smackdown.
Thanks. Riley smacking seems to be a popular theme.

Lovely redo. Wish Buffy would have snapped to that slip of Riley's about a real stake.....miserable git deserved to have some payback for that!

True - I had to mention it. Maybe it will occur to her later to ask Spike what Riley meant by "real stake this time". Thanks for reading, hon.

Great chapter. Was good that Buffy told Riley to leave, and that she was seeing Spike.
Thanks!

lol...that was so satisfying, so glad to see her tell riley off and send him packing instead of ganging up on spike with him...great writing, very funny and true to the characters, excellent work, love
Thank you. Yeah, my Buffy is usually a bit less interested in pleasing all the "normal" people than is Joss's, so she makes better decisions.

Nothing like a good rattling to shake Buffy up enough to show her the real priortities. Deftly handled for sure.
Thanks.

S- It is always such a pleasure to read your stories, The characters voices are so authentic to the "verse" and even tho this was a do-over, very rich with visual and sensory imagery.
The warmth and smell of the flickering candles, Spikes always powerful emotions... but finally Buffy comes thru, very satisfying. Write on, Write on!
Thank. This is a lovely and encouraging review. Thanks for reading.

Nice story. They couldn't be any blinder than Riley. Wish you'd let Buffy put her fasionable but reasonably priced boot up his behind.
LOL - well, at least she threatened to. Thanks for reading.
