Very good story!    I truly enjoyed this.     Nice to see that the characters from the show were spot-on, and I really enjoyed your original characters.    It would seem that any Travers, either Quentin or Phillip would turn out to be an arrogant, self-important, bigoted moron in any situation.   Well done!   Even better having Quentin declaring the Council's Witch in Residence to be redundant just before the Headquarters is destroyed in Season 7!   Excellent.

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

Thank you so much for such a kind review of my WWII story.  So glad you enjoyed it and that you found the ocs interestingh.  Flanagan was fun to write but almost took over the whole storyline, insisting that his life story was far more interestingh!

If you like ocs, you might care for Agnes Pringle in my Business as Usual story, if you haven't read it already, that is!

Thank you once again.

This is a real gem! It's such a suspenseful and tightly knit story, and even if it's not short it's just long enough to tell what needs to be told. Once the child entered the story, I kind of guessed that the purpose of this time travel would be something in the way it then showed to be - but it still had me guessing until the very end. Both Buffy and Spike are very much in character - she's just a little bit more honest to herself aobut her feelings for him than she was in the show  (just as we all wanted her to be.  and Spike's feelings are very realistically reluctant. There is just enough between them to create that feeling of fated and inevitable love that we all also know is the case with these two. The end is open enough to fuel one's curiosity - didn't that time travel change things anyway? Something seems to be different... just different enough to point toward a more happy ending than season 6 provided us with.

Great read! I loved it.
Delighted you found one of my favourite stories.  It gave me a massive headache to write so am always pleased when someone "gets it".  Must admit I sometimes feel I have failed dismally when I get an e mail saying "but you haven't explained why she had to go back in time!"   Well, she certainly wouldn't have been there without her father!

I really loved the story! Read it in less than two days! It was very original, and very well written!
Thank you so much. I loved writing this story although I sometimes felt my brain was going to burst trying to keep all the time lines in place!   Sorry for delay in replying. Been away in Sweden at football festival!

What is this tiny little loose end that you've left? Will you be writing a sequel? Please get back to me! Thanks! Great story!
-Tiffany
Hi, well, the locket's very existence is a loose end because it has time travelled itself.  I want to explore what might happen if Spike wears or handles it in the present time line.  Also what happed to Aurora and who Hank's father was!

ooh, I was right, I was right!! The similarity of the names was just too close to be coincidence.  At least, I thought it was.  I almost didn't want to think about it for fear I was being too simplistic.  But I think you did an amazing job with this.  Your knowledge of WWII really shows.
 Delighted you enjoyed the story.  Yes,  Aurora was (is) Buffy's grandmother.   I mean, the monks must have decided on the name from somewhere!   

Hoping for sequel!!!

Bravo, you wrapped all that up very cleverly.  I loved the business with the locket and the lingering feelings both Spike and Buffy have... in a circular way of course.  Toads rock.

The doctor watched them go. He felt satisfied with this adoption. The Summers were a good, kind couple. Not the sort to go out and save the world, but he was sure their boy would grow up to father children of his own and, the doctor chuckled to himself, perhaps one of those would one day save the world!
--
Holy shit.... I did NOT see that coming!

Bravo!!!!!!!!

(write more please I love your stories)
 Glad the end came as a surprise!   I tried to keep the references to the locket appearing in various chapters but didn't want to make it too obvious!   So pleased you liked the story.  Off on holiday next week but will come back and decide what to write next - and update BAU, of course!  Poor Agnes is feeling neglected.

I really enjoyed the irony that Travers' evil plan actually helped Buffy to save her own Grandmother. Loved the Henry scene, you definitely need to continue with this so dear Henry/Flannigan can return and enchant everyone with his presence again... lol!
Thanks for sharing another wonderful tale, it's definitely been a delightful ride... good story!
 Thank you so much for your kind words and I am thrilled that you enjoyed the story.  Yes, Henry is a character who needs a larger stage - according to him, that is.  My Life as a Witch's Toad, Part One, is what he wanted me to write!  I resisted.

Henry ate papers, yay!
Hank was Aurora's? Heehee. That explains how Buffy has the locket back even though she lost it.
And Buffy and Spike have hints of the past they're not catching.....lol......but who needs to know when you're gettin nekkid.
Flanagan/Henry knows the Council will blow up in the future.....yes, very good to run to Devon, indeed.

It's too bad Buffy can't remember how Spike kept helping her at a time when he was evil and unrestrained. But maybe those hidden memories will make her treat him better from now on?

 Glad you enjoyed the last chapter. I felt a bit like a juggler, trying to keep all the balls in the air at once!  And I simply couldn't have Henry being blown up by The First!   He'd never forgive me.   I think the memories might start to get stronger as the months go by.....

Shame on me because I am commenting before I actually read the last chapter.  But I just couldn't wait to thank you so much for sticking with this story for an entire year and a half start to finish.  (Too many fanfic writers give up on such long stories, so the readers never get resolution in those stories and that is so frustrating!)  I know you felt sometimes that people weren't reading it anymore--but we were!  And now that it is completed, you will have another wave of people coming to read it because I know there are many who won't read a story until it is finished.  All your long, hard work was definitely worth it!  I can't wait til this evening when I have time to come back and read the rest of the story.  Thanks!
 What a lovely comment!   Thank you so much. You are quite right - sometimes I did feel it was me, five or six regulars and a toad reading the story!   But lots of people read and don't comment until the end, as you say.  Glad you enjoyed it.  Hope you like the last chapter.

After reading this entire amazing story from start to finish I can say with utter certainty that I would love a sequel to this.

 "Oh me! Me! Yes a sequel please!"  Loved this from start to finish.  Can't help but wish that some of the memories flood back now that they are back together.  It could but help them in their current situation.

Love that Aurora is Buffy's actual grandmother.  Love that twist very much (what a shame her son became something of a rotter).

Still hate all things Travers, good job on painting them as the arrogant wretches they are LOL.

Just a delight start to finish.  LOVED Spike's vamp army.  Like to think they had a hand in turning the tide of the war.  Wish he'd told Buffy a little bit (it might jog her memory a bit too).

Kathleen (not signed in....sigh....Pfeifferpack
 Oh I'm so glad you liked the final chapter. I've always known what the ending would be, but worried that there wasn't enough Spuffy when I got there!  I like to think that Hank's father was a rotter - I mean Aurora would have been about 15 when she fell pregnant, hence her son not being the nicest person in the world. But I liked to think of Buffy being the great-grand daughter of a Slayer!

Now is Aurora still alive......hmmm, going off on holiday next week to think about that and update poor old Agnes whose story is making me question a lot of Spike's actions in Season 6 !!   When I began writing it from a different point of view, I never expected it to do that in my head!

So Aurora was Hank Summers' mother - so Buffy had to go back in time to save her own ancestor or she wouldn't exist - the paradox makes my head spin! LOL
What a wonderful original tale you spun for us! Thank you so much. I vote for a sequel please... Um... Can I have more than one vote?
I want to know what happens to Dorcas and Flanagan... as well as how the Spuffy relationship develops....
 Thank you so much for your comments. Delighted you enjoyed the story and got the paradox at the end. I've been anxious that people would say 'oh rubbish!'.    Off on holiday next week but will start thinking about new story - and updating BAU, of course  - when I return. Thank you again.

Hopefully that will mean the start of another epic Spuffy adventure

I was at the edge of my seat for the whole chapter, you did an amazing job painting an exciting picture of all the action that played out! And the goodbye scene really touched my heart. Fantastic update!
 Thank you so much.  The fight scene was difficult - you can see it in your head but making it sound authentic is difficult!   I can quite see why some writers used the "with one bound he was free"  get-out!   Hope you enjoy the final chapter.

Oh so emotional a parting....My cheeks are wet.  Can't wait to see how this plays out in the normal time-line.  Interesting that she'd think Travers sent her back to keep Spike alive (as if!).

This has been superb, just superb in every way.  Wonderful tale.  So glad the picture inspired you to write this one, it's one of your best (and Aggie wouldn't mind my saying so!).


Kathleen
 So glad you enjoyed this chapter.  i was hopeful about it.  Tempting to make the goodbye scene far more emotional, but he is still an unchipped vamp who is fighting the attraction with all his might!   Do hope the final chapter is up to everyone's expectations.  I am now deeply worried about writing it!

A true tale of soul mates since that's been planted in Spike's subconscious.  I doubt if all is erased or maybe it's a matter of chemistry. Great chapter!
 Well, there had to be an earlier encounter for her to never stake him when she had a chance in the beginning!

Perfect - first she saves him then he saves her... and now we find out if the charm worked and why it was so imperative for Buffy to go back in time in the first place. Has anything changed? Does either of them remember? Can't wait...

Of course she has to save Spike - that's what her instinct will be crying out - yes? Specially since he'd have gone there to get some more ice to help her... Can't believe there's only one chapter left though - I need more than that!
 Hopefully it will be quite a long chapter!   And I'm sure to miss out a loose end somewhere!  Bites fingers down to knuckle!!!

I completely LOVE this story. The plot is very original and it looks like you know a lot about the time period which makes it believable. I love how Spike is his evil self, but still has the softer side he'll have shown in the future. And a really great input with the ice cubes, as we've seen Spike saying she liked it in Normal Again. Amazing job, can't wait for the update!!!
 Thank you so much for taking the time and trouble to review.  Glad you are enjoying evil Spike who is having just a little bit of his badness wiped out by his growing feelings for the Slayer.  I always wondered how he knew about the ice!

Buffy getting infected is all kinds of bad, I hope it isn't too serious. I do like how Spike is caring for the poor fever ridden Buffy. Wonderful chapter as always!

Infection is a bitch. How much is there to do before they eat the charm? Buffy's right....she hasn't succeeded at much so far, aside from making Spike care.

You really did a great job of giving this chapter a scary vibe, Buffy's interaction with Dr. Walsh and his wife was totally creepy. I can't wait to find out what Buffy does about Spike's problem. Great update!

Actually, german television translated "The Slayer" as "Die Jägerin" (The Hunter). It's not quite the same meaning as in englisch, but it suits the Slayers job description. If you need help with the translation for the lines of the german characters at some point of your story feel free to ask me.
 Thank you so much for your comments.  I must admit I just translated Slayer literally.  Quite like Toterine - sorry my machine won't do umlauts!    Die Jagerin is good too, though.

  Spike certainly has bad luck with those initiative types...I'm beginning to wonder how he survived so long when he gets caught by everything. 
 
  That's a nasty place you cooked up, probably even more horrifying than the initiative itself, since it's in its baby-steps.  I look forward to seeing how Buffy is going to take the place down.
 Yes, that is what I felt.  The early stages of experimentation - dreadful.   Spike will be lucky to escape in one piece!   New chapter updated now!

I love this story so much! And I am so happy for the update. Thank you!

The nazis are probably making vampires in the consentration camps too, but an army of SSvamps is even worse.. I like how you really combine facts and fiction, and touch upon heavy themes as consentration camps without making it too easy and not too dark either.

And Spike feel betrayed, and Buffy will save him, and somewhere along the way they will stop the nazi vamps and their evil/stupid creators.  Great! I take it the story is set prior to the Angel/Spike submarine insident?

Please please write more!
 It has been difficult to write about these subjects without sounding trite and as if these terrible events are some sort of jolly backdrop to a Spuffy story!   I sincerely hope I haven't trivialised the suffering of thousands of ordinary people.

There has been some debate amongst readers as to when this story is set - before or after submarine.  Personally I vote for after.  Angel is in the States and Spike somehow got himself back to England, met up with Dru and got captured!   

I don't think his cavalier attitude to the Nazis in the sub works otherwise.

Loved the creepy prison and Walsh was so casually chilling, great atmosphere..  And didn't Buffy make a great spy!
 Yes, I think the casual approach to all of this is what makes the Nazi period so horrifying.  And I wanted Buffy to be very much action girl.  She tends to fade into the background in some stories and Spike ends up doing all the fighting and planning!

Stubbornness, thy name is Buffy. Why would she want to check out a relative that is possibly as devious as Prof Walsh? Hope she doesn't land in a pickle. And Spike...just like him to be musing about what he's going to do to Buffy when someone gets the drop on him.
 But that is the whole Buffy problem in a nutshell!   She can never leave well alone.   And Spike - captured just when he thought he was going to get some.

Yes! Finally update I have been hoping so much for it! I love the choice of time period, and hope you will give us even more period-spesific scenes, I can`t see why there are not more fics from this period. Yours are very interesting, and I love how it now seems to be a far longer fic than what I feared when they were handed the sweets. Spike doesen`t really know how he feel about the slayer, I love his conflicted thoughts. I also find the german officer interesting, you do great work with the carachters around Buffy and Spike, and I hope you will develop him further. Please please please write more and update soon
 Thank you for such a kind review. I'm glad you're enjoying the story.  Yes, it has turned itself into a much longer one than it started out to be. I realised I had left the German Initiative hanging in there without resolving anything and somehow Buffy just wouldn't go home until she'd tackled it!

Loved the lighthearted Buffy/Henry interaction. Buffy's musings about Joy make me wonder if she could be alive and captured again. And oh no, poor Spike!!! This new development is really scary!!!! I can't to find out how Buffy deals with this dangerous situation. Good update!

~ I read your response to my previous review, I don't have a live journal but if I ever take the plunge and sign up for one you bet I'll make with the friend-age!

Ow, history repeats itself. Again he  was too busy thinking about Buffy to register the danger. Poor Spike. Favourite Sentence: "Henry, hunker down and don’t croak too loudly."
   yes, poor Spike.  Can he stand being rescued by a Slayer?  It won't do his ego any good at all.

P.S. I peeked over at your LJ vacation report... Loved your pix, and I'm happy you had a great time.

Oh, and what did you do while you were in Africa? Where did you visit?

Africa isn't one of my most fav countries... Too many giant bugs lol!  If I went somewhere it would definitely be Malta.
I would love to explore the Hypogeum Caves. I've heard a lot of creepy news reports about those caves. Apparently if you go deep in the center of the caves and yell, it creates a butterfly echo.
 Oddly enough while visiting Kenya, Tanzania and this year South Africa.  I have never seen any bugs, not even a snake.  A few tiny lizards, butterflies and a working dung beetle that was fun in the safari park last month.  Mind you, when those beetles fly off, they are huge!  But harmless.

Glad you are enjoying the story.

Spike is being just a tad slow, lol, I get the feeling that his subconscious is stubbornly refusing to connect the dots!
 Absolutely!  He's not at his brightest at this moment in time, bless him!   And yes, the Walshes obviously are around, even in 1943.   

Glad you like Henry.  I think he is the same toad that Dorcas has in modern day Watcher's Council!  Sort of passes from witch to witch!

Great Spike/Buffy conversation. I find it very interesting that Spike has now convinced himself  that his interlude with Buffy in France was a some kind of magical mojo... looks like somebody is knee-deep in denial. Loved Henry's appearance, he's definitely a scene stealer. And I like the new twist, can't wait to find out what happens when Buffy and Spike take on The Initiative. Fantastic chapter! ~ Have a fun holiday!!!
 Thank you.  I feel that Henry is, in fact, the same toad that Dorcas has in the modern era.  A very magical creature passed from Witch to Witch.  Wonder if he ought to go back to France with Buffy.....hmmmm.

Oh oh! So are experimentations on demons some sort of family trade for Walsh or did she too travel trough time? Most mysterious part in this chapter for me: "Under the table, Henry, who was good at lies too, ate the spider." Will it be important that Henry is good at lies?
 Sadly, Henry - at the moment - does not play too big a role in the storyline. But the trouble with Henry is that he simply will not take a back seat.

Buffy stared down into the face that was so familiar and yet so different - brown curls, still soaked in blood and sticking to his forehead, the odd clothes, the smell of the French cigarettes he’d been smoking still clinging to his body. But the eyes were the same and unchipped or not, they seemed to laugh up at her. The bond was there; it burnt between them like a flame that could never be extinguished.

Ahhh, you write their connection so well. And glad to see that Buffy's news had the ability to shock Spike. What will his response be?! Also loving Buffy's acknowledgment that she is in a world where humans are behaving worse than demons. Can't wait for more . . .

Evil cliffhanger! I want to know what happens next: how Spike will react, if Buffy will let anything slip, if he's pig enough to focus on the question of if they've had sex in the futrue or if he'll ask about Drusilla. I can't wait for the next chapter.

I do think you use exclamation marks a little too often in this chapter. We can tell that many sentences are important, and you could just add a descriptive word to someone's speech tag instead of having every line end with exclamation! s.

 No, I've checked!  It is there.  Chp 14 ,  In the Dark,  when they are trapped under the tarpaulin in the vegetable cart!  They're certainly not playing tiddlywinks!

Silly Buffy, being so naive about the Council. After season 5, she should know better.

I keep having daydreams of how your wonderfull story might continue. It's quite distracting. So please update!

Very apt title. So it seems Quentin is really a chip off the old block sad to say. Really, Buffy should have seen this coming with as much experience with the Council as she's had. Looking forward to see how Spike gets out of his predicament.

Where she's scrubbing suds on herself and Spike barges in unknowingly and starts kissing her and....

OK... Lost my head lol

Great chapter BTW Can't wait for the next update!
 Trouble is, at this time he doesn't care if people are kind or not!  And that really upsets her!   But when it comes to Travers, well, that might be a different question!

Awwwwwwwwww how sweet that even in sleep they are holding hands.

Like Valerie and Colonel Monroe very well.  They seem decent sorts unlike Philip (is it genetic?) Travers of the disposable Slayer philosophy.  Glad they know what's what and can help sort things out properly. 

Joy must be alive as no new Slayer has been called else Angus wouldn't have expected Joy. 

Loving this and you have captured the time period well.  Yes, back then cowboys were the "good guys" in cinema and during play.  PC and a realistic look at history didn't show up until very recent history LOL.  You have nicely made your characters part of the 1940's!

Excellent.

Kathleen
 Glad you liked Valerie!  I'm looking forward to her meeting Spike!   My witches tend to be rather jolly people, I've realised!   And when you think about it,  Slayers are disposable and I think that is exactly how the Council sees them.

"singing something under his breath about blue birds and cliffs"

What does that mean?

Great story so far, BTW

Keep it comin' ^^
 At that time there was a very famous song The White Cliffs of Dover.  Sung by Vera Lynn, one of the lines was "there'll be blue birds over, the white cliffs of Dover, tomorrow, just you wait and see."

Far too smulchy for Spike, but he is upside down at the time!

Wow, that was one intense scene that played out after the crash, I loved all detail you put into it. I also enjoyed the the tidbits of new info the scene back at the Watcher's Council revealed. I especially liked learning that Joy sent the coded radio message about Spike and Buffy's return to England, and I'm thinking the slayer Colonel Monroe is depending on isn't Joy. Loved the update!
 Colonel Monroe is going to be confused in lots of ways, I fear.  Or is he?

This is one of my very favorite WIP's Spike is evil, but not viscious. There are lot's of little hints and flutters of the heart that demonstate what might be possible... I don't know how you are going to reconcile their feelings with Spike and Dru's affair. Can't wait for more!

"If I lost you - I mean, if I lost someone I loved"  Great line, I liked how Buffy's subconscious let that slip out. And I loved the locket clasp scene, I thought it was very interesting that Spike and Buffy were sharing the same thoughts. Fantastic chapter as always!

 Always keen to read your views.  So glad you are still enjoying their adventures in France.

 So nice to see Buffy have the light globe moment that perhaps it doesn't matter that Spike has no soul. And more moments where they can't resist touching each other!
Cute idea about the stake tattoo for Slayers, but in the context of the story, I felt the darker undertone of tattooing people for identification with a shiver.
Poor abandoned Aurora, and poor Buffy facing the painful realisation that she will probably never have her own baby.
Can't wait for the next chapter!!
 So good to see someone has picked up the tattoo comparison.  I really couldn't see anyway of putting it across without spelling it out which would have been far too preachy and heavy.

It's good to see Buffy recognizing the good in Spike and especially that little thought about did it really matter that Spike has no soul.

Great update.  Loved the tension/confusion about Spike's growing feelings for Buffy and Buffy thinking that him not biting her meant he didn't want her. . .
 Thank you so much for taking the time to review and comment. Much appreciated and glad you are enjoying the story.  This trip is teaching Buffy a great deal.

 Thank you so much for all your reviews for this story.  Hope you saw my message on home page about reposting chapter 7.  I had to do 8 as well. l had no idea they were still missing after the great melt down drama.

I am thrilled you are enjoying the story so much.  Do hope you don't still find Buiffy a little bland. Don't forget this is Season 6, just back from the dead, Buffy.  She always seemed a little disconnected to me.

 Poor Spike is so conflicted at the moment.  I imagine this is doing all sorts of things to his subconscious vampire!   Perhaps that explains what happens in the future.

I'm finding Spike's plight very fascinating, he's got his love and worry for Dru on one hand, and his concern and budding feelings for Buffy on the other... should be interesting to see where Spike's heart takes him. Spike also made some good points about the German's setting a trap, can't wait to find out how the upcoming plan pans out. Good update!
 Yes, in some ways he is far more confused than Buffy. She knows they have a connection, it doesn't come as a surprise to her. But for Spike, he is being torn in two.

Oh he is so smitten!  Her welfare is already his concern (that's our Spike!).  I kinda wish Buffy would just tell him the truth, give him something to think about.  That would change things, yes, but that is the very least that the future Council deserve for their trickery.

If nothing else Buffy SHOULD snap that Spike without a soul can and does love.  Why would he go to this trouble and danger if he didn't love Dru?  AND....If he was capable of loving Dru he most certainly is capable of loving her.

Love this story!

Another wonderful chapter!  Spike was just being Spike taking an opening when given to him.  Can't blame a bloke for that.  Buffy on the other hand ..They need to survive and looking forward to how you pull that off.  You have one of the best lines I've read from Quentin.."necessary reduction of obsolete stock".  So aptly cold!! 
 Thank you. i love writing Quentin. So obnoxious, but then we don't know his history!

YAY another update!

"a necessary reduction of obsolete stock." 
OH what a cold bastard!

Oh Giles!  You just do not get the connection between Buffy and Spike do you?

Ahhh he momentarily forgot Dru *snicker*.  Yes they both dove deep into the waters of denial.  Glad Buffy has admitted to herself that HER Spike does love her (wonder if that realization will hit her consciously?).  Naturally they are both trying to pretend that what happened between them was some weird fluke not destiny.  I think they will have to reevaluate.

Hum....thinking ahead I wonder if some sort of "forget" spell will be used on Spike to explain his lack of memory of this interlude.  That might explain his early attraction to Buffy in canon for one thing!

Love how she is starting to notice how blurred the differences between "her" Spike and this earlier, evil version.  The man was always there!

Love his toying with the idea of taking on the German war machine with a vamp army!  I can see him doing just that with the right impetus.

Excellent!

(Um....is there a missing chapter?  It goes from 14 to 16.  I noticed no gap in the story though.)

 Must admit I am enjoying writing this one.  The attraction between two bitter enemies when only one of them knows they are!  is interesting.

Interesting Giles/Travers scene, I never wouldn't guessed charms were so expensive... then again the charm is very powerful. And I loved Buffy and Spike's interaction, all things considered I think the morning after went reasonably well. Great look into Spike's head too, like it or not Buffy's influence is definitely changing him. Wonderful update!

Bit confused by going from chapter 14 straight to chapter 16... but then I realised I hadn't missed anything so it's all good. I see both vamp & Slayer are still deep in denial mode... it's so cute! Now then... to stay and help the resistance or to get to the plane? Decisions... decisions...
 Sorry about the chaptering. The site does that to me so often and I get worried about going back and renumbering in case I delete something!   yes, big decisions to be made. Well, that's OK because hey, Buffy and Spike, two people who can make a decision - right?

cut-glass accent - good description.  LOL at Travers docking Giles pay for the charm. 

For a minute he was tempted – he could tell them he would stay and fight with the Resistance - whew - Spike almost slipped up there and did something good, sort of.  Thank goodness he came to his sense.
 Buffy is having a bad influence on him!  Poor Spike - so bad and yet the good is just there, under the surface all the time.

I liked your clever uses sleep and unconsiousness as a way to give Buffy and Spike the freedom to act on their desires/feelings. Buffy's touches to the unconscious Spike were definitely sweet, and Spike giving in to temptation opens up all sorts of interesting new possibilities. Can't wait to find out how the aftermath of the dream induced Spuffy loving plays out! And I gotta say Spike and Buffy's inner dialogues rocked yet again. Great chapter!
 Appreciate you taking the time once again to leave me a nice long review.  it certainly brightens my day to receive them.  Glad you enjoyed the chapter.  They are both on the brink of a new relationship now.  We will see if they are brave enough to take the plunge.

Love the identical trip into the land of denial... LOL
Now then, when Buffy wakes up will she realise it was really real? Will they 'talk about it'? Can't wait!
 Now when did Buffy ever talk about anything that bothered her?!!!   Spike, now that's a different thing altogether.  It will be an interesting conversation but might be a bit one-sided!

How shameful was that! Being hit over the head by a girl holding a baby!

Heh. Good thing he was able to overcome his embarrassment!

This was an interesting chapter, with so much of Buffy's baggage coming to light in the dark.
 So glad you enjoyed it!

Oh hell ya!! I love this!!

excellent story! I adore time travel.

But why did you post "I will fight" twice? maybe you accidentally missed a chapter.. OMG!!
 Pleased you like the story.  Don't worry, the site posted a chapter twice. It sometimes does that to my fic for some reason.

If you like time travel fics, you might care for Through Time to Me, which is posted on this site. By me!

Oh man, you should have let Buffy slap that other Slayer. 
 The problem being that Joy is only reacting as a Slayer trained by the Council or by a Watcher is isn't Giles, would react!   And really she and Buffy are very alike in some ways.  They are both fanatically loyal to the men they love!

I love how Spike & Buffy are gradually becoming accustomed to rescuing/helping each other. Buffy is slowly recognising the potential that always existed in Spike before the chip and Spike is having 'William' moments more and more often. Excellent slow progression of the relationship and very realistic.
 So pleased you enjoyed the chapter.  Working out their relationship with all the different 'who knows what about whom' has been interesting and will get even more so as the story progresses.  Hope you will enjoy the rest of it.  Do let me know.

This chapter featured a great look into Buffy's head. I especially liked the brain clicking moment when Buffy realized an important truth about Spike.  I also loved this line... "Buffy shut her thoughts into a tiny box, buried it deep in her head and threw away the key."  That sums up Buffy's a bit of Buffy's personality perfectly. The scene with Joy was interesting too. Wonderful update!
 Thank you.  Was waiting for your comments!   So glad you enjoyed the chapter.  As it was the first thing I had written after being ill, I was worried that it sounded disjointed.  But people seem to be happy with it.  On to next one.  Oh, they are in a dark hot place on their own!  Oh!

Thought you should know, the chap has posted twice--it's been happening a bit lately.

Gah, silly Spike, getting caught--I'm glad Buffy is willing to protect him (and I love that she's having little niggling thoughts about his nature and ability to care, even if she is trying to ignore them).

Fabulous chap, as always, thank you.

 I never know whether to delete one or not.  Probably I had better do that because it obviously irritates people.  Glad you enjoyed the chapter.

Chp 13 "I will fight!"         
I understand that war is war and can do things to people but even so, Joy seems very cold and callous to a vamp that obviously didn't hurt her. 
 Joy is a Slayer trained by the Council.  Her Watcher is not known to Buffy and we have no idea how she was educated by him.  To her all vampires should be killed immediately. She does not understand Spike or Buffy, come to that!   But there are character traits she and Buffy do have in common.  Loyalty to their men is the main one.

Love the lighter :-)

"He reckoned it was being close to a sodding Slayer that was making him have all these weird emotions. It was something catching! Like measles."  lol  Lovely analogy!

Thank you very much for the "couldn’t-care-less " - I keep hearing 'could care less' and it drives me a little round the bend! 

“He knows exactly where I am.”  I'm surprised he didn't smell himself on her, but maybe it had been a while between shagathons.
 Appreciate the comments and yes, I agree about "couldn't care less".   I've seen could care less as well, which makes absolutely no sense at all!     As for measles, well, high fever and a desire to stay in bed!  I'll forget the rash!!!!!!

02/24/2009 05:52 am
Chp 12 Lies and more Lies         
"He reckoned it was being close to a sodding Slayer that was making him have all these weird emotions."  Yes, Buffy is already drawing the William in him to the forefront.  He is always lurking about and when Buffy is in the mix he really moves forward.

Love the way Spike is so familiar even while different not only to us but to Buffy as well.  One thing happening with her is a coming to realization that HER Spike is more than a pass time....she is jealous of Dru and misses her relationship with him.

Curious about the American killed....have a feeling there is something more to this.  Love the hints that Spike has shared more than a little of vamp lore....expect those imprisoned vamps will still play some part in time.

Excellent, just excellent. 

Kathleen
 I was hoping you would comment as i always value your remarks, as you know.  Yes, I've always felt that some parts of William remained in Spike even after he was turned.  And Buffy is the one person who awakens that side of him, no matter in what year they find themselves.

But he is still unchipped and unsouled and I think it is going to be very scary to her when she realises, this doesn't actually matter to her feelings for him.

The American, Joy, vamp army,  Dorcas, Giles, Travers - hope you're keeping a list of all the threads that I'm trying to pull together in case I miss one!

Looks like in any era Buffy gets under Spike's skin... lol! Spike's already mentioning Buffy's hair, makes me wonder how long it will be before Buffy enters his dreams.
The interaction between Spike and Buffy continues to rock! I'm enjoying the conversations these two are having, reading their hidden thoughts is also informative and fun.   Wonderful chapter!
 Well, by the way he keeps reminding himself how much he loves Dru,  I would say Not Long!

Buffy almost forgot herself there. Good thing Spike didn't pick up on it.  And I suppose Joy shows up at some point again as Buffy logically surmised?
 Buffy is quite often portrayed as being stupid, but when there is a fight or mission involved, she can see things very clearly.

Lies, indeed. Though Buffy was right - he did know exactly where she was. Or, a version of him did. =) Love the chapter, especially how Spike got all upset on behalf of the tortured vamps and then decided that he was catching something from Buffy. Uh huh. Sure. =D Anyhow, can't wait to see what you got in store next!
 Delighted that you enjoyed the chapter.  Poor Spike, all these feelings of pity and anger and he can't admit to any of them.  I'll try and update again soon.

Very nice chapter.  I love the balance between the insightful or touching moments and the snark and snappy comebacks. They're both on such an emotional rollercoaster at the moment and you show that so well.

He reckoned it was being close to a sodding Slayer that was making him have all these weird emotions. It was something catching! Like measles.

I love this line--it's just so Spike! (And it almost made me snort coffee all over my keyboard. LOL)
 Thank you!  Yes, Spike is trying really, really hard to justify his feelings of pity and his desire to fight a battle that, at the moment, isn't his.  The man he will one day become is already there, chip, soul or not.

Oh, love the new chapter! Seems like both Spike and Buffy are trying to convince themselves that it's only for ther own protection that they want to stay with each other... we know other wise... =D Anyhow, I adored the comments about how Angel wouldn't believe his story! And I just love the picture of Buffy falling asleep on evil William the Bloody's shoulder... awww...

 So glad you enjoyed the chapter.  it was fun to write.  Spike is trying so hard to live up to his image and failing in some ways because the Slayer doesn't respond as she should.  Well, she can't, because even though he is William the Bloody,  part of her still thinks of him as her lover. Very confusing for her.

Great chapter! Can't wait to see how Spike and Buffy will get to the plane! And if Spike will figure anything else out about this girl who seems to know more about him than she should........ ^_^
 Thank you so much for reviewing.  yes, Dorcas certainly doesn't know or understand about the connection. But she knows something is wrong.  What else will she discover in her predecessors notes?   It will be interesting.

And Spike is already totalling confused by this Slayer and his reactions towards her.  He's getting very irritated with himself.

01/07/2009 10:34 pm
Chp 10 : Following Orders         
I rather wonder why Rupert hasn't questioned Spike about his memories of the events of 1943.  Likely hasn't occurred to him as yet.

Giggled a lot about Dorcas and her blue tuna.  As a child I loved to use food coloring in whipping cream to make a lovely blue or pink concoction.....hum...an apprentice witch perhaps?  Never tried it with tuna although it might have appealed back then.  LOL

Love the reason Giles had for putting Buffy in this position even if she will likely not be happy with him.

Great update.  Buffy sees bits of HER Spike already there...the ability to know and do things that are on the right side of moral are traits she never really credited him with pre-soul so it must surprise her to see them in pre-chip Spike.  She has much to learn  and think about (including how Spike has not bitten her and how he is self-sacrificing in his love for Dru...hum....can a demon love?  She'll have to conclude that THIS one can at least).

Excellent!
Kathleen
 Kathleen!  You are an apprentice witch!  Food colouring bad!  I'm not too worried by the blue in the tuna; it was the wiggly bits that were more of a concern!

Yes, Buffy is already disturbed by this Spike. She knows he is unchipped, but keeps forgetting.   And usually their fighting ends up in only one way and that isn't going to happen - she thinks!  

At the moment they both know instinctively that they need the other one to get out of this mess, although neither will admit it.  

As for Rupert - well, let's wait and see.   

Runs away to consult extremely complicated notes.  

Please, if I ever say i am thinking of writing another time travel story, stop me!

Just thought I'd send you a quick note - I AM reading this one, although it's not really my cup of tea (which you've so kindly taught me to brew and drink properly...) but it's well written and I find the betrayal of Buffy by the people in the present in this way to be an interesting idea.  I know that everyone, just about, in Buffy's present betrayed her at least once, but this sure is a big one!
I will go back to reading in the Lilachigh Library soon - just a lot going on here with Christmas preparations and all. 
 I do hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a very happy new year.  Updating my stories may have to wait now until after Christmas as, like you, I am getting busier with each passing day and i don't expect there will be many people around to read them, anyway!  But i do hope to rough out next chp of Future Imperfect while i am away, and before too many people come after me with large blunt instruments, try and get some closure - or at least beginning of closure! - on Something to Sing About which has been sadly neglected.

OH I LIKE Spike's plan!!!!!  I rather enjoy the idea of a pack of demons going after the Nazi's..yup yup.

Buffy hasn't snapped to the fact that Spike could (SHOULD) have already killed her since he believes himself betrayed and Dru likely dust.  She hasn't figured out he is much like her Spike already.

Just love this story.  Can't wait till there's some payback.  Wonder what Spike in the "future" remembers and if he will be talking to Giles any time soon about those memories.

Excellent.

 Will you remind me the next time I start anything to do with time travel that it makes me head ache!  Glad you are enjoying the story.  I love writing it but, as Harmony once said, it's hard and stuff.

OMG you can't just post a couple of chapters and then leave me like this!

anyway, the story is just great
can we have a chapter where Buffy goes all hard core killer? She's not doing nearly as good as she should!!
 Well, you have got 8 chapters so far!  Chapter 9 should be along some time this week.  i do appreciate that Buffy is not being particularly Slayerish at the moment, but don't forget what she always says - she fights and kills vampires and demons, not human beings.  Remember her crisis when Faith killed the Mayor's assistant by mistake?    She is in the middle of a serious war situation but feels unable to kill soldiers, regardless of her knowledge of the situation.  I actually feel quite sorry for her.  Do you see what I mean?

Oh, dear.  What now? 

I love Dorcus.  She reminds me a bit of  Mad Madame Mim, the witch in Disney's Sword in the Stone.  She has shades of Agnes, too, but much less concerned with her appearance!

Thanks for the update.

 What now indeed!  Betrayal, a lover who doesn't love her - well, so far! - and a witch whose spells might not always work.  Oh plus the Third Reich, a runaway Slayer and a baby.  Hmmm, this short story sort of grew wings.

The moment Buffy took to ponder whether she wanted to go home or not was so bittersweet, I'm glad Giles is working on a way to help her. Loved the Dorcas/Giles scene, I think Dorcas is a great addition to the story. Fantastic update!

 Thanks for reviewing. Glad you like Dorcas. I think she might be important!   Now she has to decide what to do in 1943.

Buffy asks a good question. how come Spike didn't recognise her at the Bronze that first night? has she already changed the future? Have you figured out how to avoid the paradox yet?
Now Buffy knows Giles lied to her. She's not going to be a happy bunny, is she?
 Not happy bunny?  I think that's an understatement.  Now she has to decide what to do in 1943.  Have I worked out the paradox?  Well.....

11/18/2008 12:56 am
Chp 8 Not Cricket         
And so she discovers the betrayal.  Poor Buffy was so often betrayed by others in the disguise of "greater good".  I don't know if she will easily forgive Giles for this one.

Interesting about being more emotionally whole there.  Hope she figures out her feelings before returning and also hope she puts her friends in the PROPER place in her life and that is not deciders (to use a word my current and soon to be former President uses often).

Excellent.  Really enjoying this and love your witch very much.

Glad Rupert is at least trying to do right by Buffy.  Maybe he'll feel enough remorse to actually accept her feelings for Spike.

Kathleen
 At the moment she is being betrayed on all sides and perhaps, deep down, she will never forget.  Of course, that applies to other feelings as well!

Glad you like Dorcas Twigg.  Now how can i get her to meet Agnes?

Lilac you have a perfect talent for little old ladies.  Does Dorcas know Agnes?  I'm sure they'd be great friends.  Good Spike - nasty and damn cheerful about it, too.
 Thank you!  Demons are difficult, little old ladies seem easy - but Agnes would be deeply offended to be called 'old'!!

By the way, on my LJ, I am offering Christmas ficlets featuring my original characters.  Are you on LJ?   I am so tempted to do an Agnes/Dorcas cross-over fic anyway!

I am really enjoying this story so very much.  I'll follow wherever you lead with it but can't help but speculate about a whole new universe being created if Buffy discovers she cannot return.  I can see her using what she remembers from history (she was never THAT stupid) and altering the course of the war if stuck there!  I can also see her hooking up with Spike back then and him giving up the big bad for her just as in her time.  LOL   So many possibilities.

"Giles had a nasty feeling Buffy would sacrifice the world to save Spike."  How perceptive of Giles...he sees whereas even Buffy hasn't .  Buffy LOVES Spike and her Watcher knows.  Will be interested to see what he has in mind with the Council's witch there (really like her in this brief meeting).

Kathleen

 I haven't been told yet by the characters what will happen!   I have an idea or two, but we will see.  Regarding Giles, I always thought he must have known and seen from the very beginning which way Buffy was going regarding Spike.  This man is a Watcher - the word, surely, says it all.   Forget the absent minded librarian, remember the guy who in cold blood killed Ben.

I love Dorcas!  I can tell she's going to be a veritable force in this story.

Giles' inner musings are interesting and very telling, especially the bit that leads up to "Giles had a nasty feeling Buffy would sacrifice the world to save Spike."

The end was hilarious: "they were both pushing away, cursing, spitting and scrubbing at their mouths."  Shades of Willow's spell.

I wonder if Buffy has been duped by Joy.  Sometimes Buffy is a bit naive and much too trusting.  I suspect it has something to do with her black and white view of the world; Joy is a slayer, so she must be honest. 

Great chatper.  Thanks for the update.

P.S. You might like to correct  "Her jerked her towards him, hearing the little gasp as he head fell back."

 Thank you so much, especially for picking up the typos which I have rushed to correct.

Yes, Dorcas is going to be vital, Joy needs to be watched because she is an old-fashioned type Slayer. Everything is black or white.  Buffy sometimes sees shades of grey and I have the feeling they are going to clash very soon - well, as soon as they find her, that is!

Wow-I wondered when Giles would re-think what he did.  Is he trying to validate himself by thinking she would have done this even if she knew tjhe outcome?  Just how is Dawn dealing with all this?  And now that Spike and Buffy kissed would he be able to smell himself on her? I know, yuk.  Can't wait till the next update!
 Thank you for your interesting comments. Well, Dawn thinks Buffy is away on Slayer business for a couple of days!  Could be problems if she is away for longer.  And,  of course, there must be a way to resolve the problem of Buffy and Spike recognising each other when they meet again - if they both survive the War!

Wondeful story... You made my blood run cold when Giles said that Buffy had sacrificed Spike to save the world.  All I could think of was that smirky little smile on her face at the end of the earthquake that covered Sunnydale. I think I would have to hate Joss alittle bit if he really  meant for Buffy to  betray  Spikes devotion to her and her friends and family. He deserved so much more than the constant disdain and belittling. 
  Really good , I love it when a good fanfiction, sticks a knife in my heart like  the show did. thanks for the story, eager for more. N

Giles had a nasty feeling Buffy would sacrifice the world to save Spike.
Interesting--that Giles knows there is something between them, that is.

I wonder what Joy really is up to...I guess we'll find out sooner or later. lol

Buffy drew her fist back to punch the face she loved so much and stopped as a stutter of machine gun fire ripped through the trees.

Oh, and admission (of sorts) from Buffy that she loves Spike, or at least his face. lol 

Still loving this fic! Thank you for the update.
 

 I think Giles has always suspected more than he let on.  He never looked that surprised when she told him on his final return to Sunnydale that she was sleeping with Spike.    Buffy will never admit she loves Spike except when she is angry with him!   And she doesn't love this Spike - but his face is still that of the man she does love. Confused?  You should be sitting where I am!

Great closing scene, I enjoyed looking at things through Spike's eyes... should be interesting to see how long he and Buffy can hold off before completely giving in to temptation. I also enjoyed the Giles/Travers interaction, Travers' opinions are definitely interesting. Between Giles' new plans, Spike and Buffy's perlious situation, and Joy still missing... I can't wait to read more! Fantastic chapter!
 Thank you for taking the time to comment. Much appreciated as always.  Yes, poor Spike is completely confused by his reaction to Buffy.  It goes against everything he believes in at this time in his life/death.  Will try and update soon.

Can you put together this two and don´t wait for the kissage?
Never.
They can curse and spit everything what they want that they will return to do it again soon.

More and more...
 Spike genuinely is confused because he loves Dru and can't understand what is drawing him to Buffy.  Buffy, of course, cannot separate the two different Spike's in her heart, although in her brain she can see the difference. Sighs. Life is so difficult!

It was interesting to see the different point of views of the two Slayers: we know Buffy to have an open mind and personal opinions; she's gone against the Council and had vampire boyfriends, so I was expecting some sort of flexibility from Joy as well, since she's defied the Council's authority, but in spite of having seen Spike majorly involved in the plan for freeing her, she just crosses him off as a foul creature of no possible use.

I knew Spike wouldn't stay away for long..
I wonder what's keeping Joy?
Are they going to have to do something about stopping the vamp experiments?
 I think Buffy is about to wake up to the fact that she is in the middle of a "history" lesson that she learnt a couple of years ago and the full horror of it hasn't occurred to her yet!   How she and Spike deal with it and each other - well, let's just wait and see!

I wonder why the Council is so keen to get her back to England.

Ah...the Nazi-Initiative! *shudders* I can see why the poor vamp was thanking her for staking him, it was a mercy.

 
 Yes, Joy is the type of Slayer who thinks she knows better than everyone else.   I wonder who that reminds me of?

Ewww. A face really shouldn't migrate down that much.

And leave it to Spike to sneak up on her without trying again.

If it's only one Nazi covering the plane, then Buffy just has to sneak over there and knock him out. They get in the air and back to England.
 No, I think there were more than one and Spike couldn't fly it during daylight anyway!  And the plane only holds 2 which may prove to be a problem.....

I LOVE the snarky Spike!  Looking forward to more.  
 Yes, when they realise they have not one but two Slayers almost within their grasp, then i think they will call up reinforcements who won't be quite so "soldierly"  if there is such a word!

 Well, he could have, but it would have made a very short story!   But seriously, I think he is very reluctant to do anything that might lead to Dru being sacrificed for his mistakes.  And, of course, this will really upset Buffy when she discovers his motivation.

Chapter Three         
Such a short chapter, but I'm just glad this fic updated! The idea of Spike letting a branch swing back to hit Buffy is such a clear demonstration of the differences between this time and her time's Spike. I can't recall Spike ever killing in Buffy's presence before except demons, but whatever.
I'm looking forward to Spike getting more suspicious about Buffy and whatever is going to happen next while they're on this mission! and if Buffy finds out he's doing it for Drusilla. Great chapter, write more soon!
 So glad you are enjoying the story.  I think Buffy means that she has seen him kill - if not feed, although I would need to check on that.  And yes, I think Spike will begin to suspect something strange is going on. Will hope to update soon.

I have always loved the interaction of Spike and Buffy, no matter what stage their relationship was in.  As Kathleen said, the connection is always there.  This story is brilliant, so whatcha got in store for us next?  thank you for a great update.

Isabella
 Pleased you like it. Hope to update soon when the other Slayer appears!

Chapter Three         
Oh my no matter the time period they meet that connection will always be there.  No escaping the inevitable.  This will be quite the learning experience for them both.

Really am enjoying this story and the cold blooded behavior of Travers and Giles is totally in character.  I'd bet Quentin DID know it was Spike too!

Excellent update.

Kathleen
 Glad you are enjoying the story. Yes, I'm sure Travers knows more than he is saying.

Great start!

Ah! I said it before and I'll say it again: Bloody Brilliant! The picture you paint is brilliant, and the few plot details you spilled here with Giles and Travers leave me hungry for more.

Every sentence just adds to further pulling me into the story. Brilliant.

Yikes - that was quick!  Can't wait to see how they get on.  Giles has behaved very badly not being straight with Buffy, and he can't blame it on Travers.  More soon please. 
 I know!  i am so proud of myself, getting 2 chapters out so fast.  Third one might be a day or two longer.  Agnes is calling.

Chapter Two         
always thought giles want to grow up and be just like travers. very good read, thank you.
 I suppose the difference is that Travers is completely cold-blooded about what he does - he would have made a perfect vampire - but Giles agonises over things.  At the end of the day, though, Giles will always act for the greater good, even if that means sacrificing his friends.

Chapter Two         
That was great - loved the evil Giles betrayal (again) and wondering just how are you going to get them back????
 me too!  Well, Buffy, at least, and of course if she doesn't go back, then Spike won't be chipped and various apocalypses would turn out different and....oh my brain hurts!

08/08/2008 03:39 pm
Chapter Two         
Darn! That Travers and his underhanded plans.   The Giles twist came as a complete surprise, I wonder what he's gonna tell the scoobies about Buffy? Can't wait for Spike to interact with Buffy, should be very interesting. Fantastic update!
 Thank you so much.  Will try and update very soon.

Excellent; this should be great fun!  He will be soooo freaked!
 Absolutely!

Chapter Two         
Travers is as sneaky as we have come to expect, but I'm surprised at Giles. Now then... I'm on the edge of my seat wondering how Spike will react to Buffy... and how will history be changed? Will Buffy be able to get home to *her* Spike or will she have to stay in 1943?
 Travis, of course, is quite cold-blooded about Slayers. Giles, perhaps not so much, but does he know more than he is saying?  He did  make the charm liquid, of course.  Canon will change completely if she stays in 1943. Would Spike even get chipped?

Gotta say, love the whole idea of this story.  I'm a huge fan of back in time fics and you don't see many covering WWII.  I'm looking forward to any and all updates.  Your writing, as always, captures Spike and Buffy perfectly.  Please keep this one coming

 Very pleased to hear you like the idea of the time travel story.  It's fun to do, although my head hurts sometimes trying to remember all the time lines involved!

Juicy beginning!
Nazis and vampires... it's Joss' canon, it's Bowiebaharata's canon; it was about time someone put the Spike/Buffy action right there, and I'm glad it's you. 
 So glad you are enjoying it so far!  Await further comments anxiously.

Bloody brilliant! I wasn't sure going into it how you'd manage the set-up, but I have to say, I'm already hooked. Spike's characterization is spot-on and I'm hungry for the next chapter.

Cool story concept Lilac.  What does I should coco mean?
 I should coco is a term that was much in use during thirties and forties in England.  Roughly it is a sarcastic version of "No way,"  "In your dreams"  "You must be joking".    I have no idea where it originated.  I imagine it was a version of Cockney rhyming slang but even the encyclopaedia doesn't help.  But my parents used it a great deal.

Great banner and I love this concept; very clever!  Interesting point in time to start from the present.  Really looking forward to more.
 Thank you very much.  Nice to know you are enjoying the story.

A great idea to place Buffy in wartime France, plus a big surprise in store!  I love it.
 Delighted that you are enjoying the story. With a banner like that in front of me,  it's fascinating to discover what happened to them.

Chapter One         
Time travels always are a dangerous trick. Worried about Drusilla, forces to saved the Slayer. I dont think that he has a lot of patience with a future Buffy.
I know it, it is a history for them, but always Spike is below his potential, which always bring me his words to Buffy after bitting Andrew saying her that she never saw it as really he is; and the same that he said  to Angelus during their fight for the 'Cup'  in which he said him that he did not know who is really Spike, who he has never seem him actually.
Seems to be a great history and I wait for the new update.
 Meeting up in a different time will be interesting - especially for  Buffy because it will be normal time for Spike, of course.

Putting your banner up is not too difficult. First you need to store it somewhere online (photobucket is good, or the LJ gallery works too...I find photobucket a little more user-friendly).

If you go with Photobucket you just copy the HTML code that it gives you and paste it where you want it...I generally like to centre banners above the fic--to do that you just paste the PB code inside <center> </center> .

If you store the image somewhere other than photobucket just use this code  <center><img src="insert image url here"></center>  Don't remove the inverted commas, and make sureyou use the American spelling and you should be right. Good luck...if you have any problems just yell (you can get me on YM as wantedjbj, I'm invisible, but just ding and I'll probably be there).
 It works!  Runs screaming round the room at lovely banner appearing.  Thank you so much.  I shall store your instructions and go round putting up banners on everything!

I love time-travel fics, and clearly you've got layers going on in what's happening! I love how Spike had to bite back saying "of course" because of his evil pride, was unafraid of dying, was a bit rude and loudmouthed, and so worried for Drusilla... perfect characterization in one scene. Great job and I hope you update soon!
 Oh so do I.  This is the second one I've written - Through Time to Me was the other - and the time is interesting because it is close enough to be almost the same but not quite.  And I've always been fascinated by what Spike did after the submarine!

Very interesting.  Why wouldn't Buffy and Spike remember if they met before?  Maybe I'm jumping the gun.
 Well, a little bit, perhaps.  The title holds a double meaning...I say no more!
