Pretty damn powerful. Not as grim as I thought it would be; less so than the series, for what my opinion's worth. Since there's balance at the end, and all's set to right.

Of course, it wouldn't have had many more seasons to the series if it had ended like this, would it? Unless they'd changed the name to Spike the Vampire Slayer.
LOL  I'd of watched that!   Thanks. I'm glad you liked it. It was pretty grim for me, but an interesting thought to play with.

They are lucky he had to take care of what came back otherwise I think he would have killed them. Chip or no chip. Simply for the horror they put Dawn through.
I hadn't thought of that, but you're probably right. He would have been furious.

Best part of the story was the end, a message from Buffy to tell him that he had been correct about where she was, probably gave him comfort to know for sure, and to here her voice... really moving oneshot
Thank you. I'm glad you liked it.

That was beautifully written.  I'm fairly new to this site, but I have loved all of your stories that I've found so far.  I think the best part of this was the fact that Spike asserted himself as the eldest and most knowledgeable of the group... something I think the show too often forgot.  I mean, he's been around for over 150 years.  Didn't Willow think he might know a little more than her?  Or did she not want to hear his objections to her plans?
Wonderful story, even if I am blinking back tears.

Thank you. I'm so glad you thought it made sense and worked. I hope you enjoy the rest of my fics.

You did it again as I am wiping the tears from my eyes.  Short to the point  and hitting the right spot.  Luv it.
Thank you. I'm so glad you liked it and found it affecting.

Slayme - this makes more sense than what happened on the show, but they were looking for more than one episode.  Loved the part where he takes her back to the cemetery and talks to her, even though she isn't really there.
Oh yeah. Would have been a season-ender, wouldn't it? LOL  But it could have happened this way in a darker world.  Thanks for reading.

Reading your stories from the bottom going up.
Let me say here: every one I have read till this moment [some I have just skipped, because of the time it is set, or something other, I just don't like, but that's the smallest part] are really good, interesting.. Sometimes really sad.. But allways good..
thank you for all of them..

But writing a review here, because this one somehow seemed again a bit more special, and plotwise not read before.
Consequences. Actually more understandable this way, since the spell was interupted before it was finished.. And Buffy totally wrong. Yeah.. No hope for Buffy, or the corpse of Buffy that can't even be undead, and Spike doing it for her, for him. Even if he was too late.
Thank you for reading and commenting. I hope you continue to enjoy them. This one was a challenge at an LJ community and I'm really pleased with how it came out. I'm glad you liked it.

Fine Work here - lovely story, considering the sad and tragic events, I felt very good about the ending and how Spike handles himself -

Thanks for a beautiful short story -
Thank you for saying so. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.

Beautiful piece of work. The arrogance of the Scoobies contrasted perfectly with Spike's nobility. And that was the crassest Xander ever!
Thanks. I'm glad you liked it.

Wow! What a challenge, and you did a great job. If you hadn't ended it hte way you did, I was thinking that Dawn wasn't the only one who was going to have nightmares for decades. Spike wouldn't live long enough to wear away the horror of having to do this. This is a great example of a true horror tale. Very well done!
Thank you so much. Yes, I expect it's going to haunt Spike for a while too - but at least he knows he did the right thing.

oh how very dark, chilling...intense...it stands to reason that this could have happened, her friends were so careless....how tragic, but spike was there for her even then..excellent work, love
Thanks. I like to see it as Spike's finally getting a chance to save her...

Oh now that - that was beautiful. Heartbreaking, but beautiful.

That's dark. Not that I wasn't warned. I think the darkest part about it, though, was the appalling lack of hope.
That is the gut-wrenching part for Spike and Dawn, isn't it? Thanks for reading.

*cries* That was... wow. Glad it didn't happen that way but again it would have been better than S6. Great writing, I think you did a fab. job.
Thanks GB -I need to take down that blurb about the writing, I guess. I just copy/pasted from the version that originally went up at the community and forget that was there.

You might not be happy with it but I liked it.

I am sure it was a horrible challenge but you did it well.
Thank you. There was no way that it wasn't going to be awful, given the challenge, but at least Spike finally got to save her.

Definitely dark and angsty, but so awesome. Normally not into very dark fics, but this one was so well done and so believable. I'm glad you put yourself to the challenge because you did a great job!!
Thank you. How kind of you to say so.

Was likely, definitely. And since they didn't take her to a mortuary first, with wanting to hide her death, the body would have decomposed much more rapidly. Still would have been juicy, though, after only 4 months. Good thing zombies crumble to dusty remains, as that could have been really messy.

Stupid Scoobies....
Yup - dumb idea, when you think about it. Thanks for reading.

Okay..if this is your idea of something that doesn't work, I'd really hate to see what does! I'm bawling here... good job!
- well, no question that the story works; it was the writing style that I played with a bit too much. Thanks for reading and commenting.

So... you weren't kidding when you said "dark." I liked it though - not sure what you thought didn't work. Poignant and sad... and, as always, excellent writing style.
Thanks. I went with short, choppy sentences and present tense (which is a bitch!) to provide a feeling of urgency. It was hard and and I wasn't sure that it worked, but everyone seems to think so.

Very touching, I felt tears welling. Depressing, but tender. Love it.
Thank you.
