I actually felt sorry for Xander and yet felt justice for his situation. He is now experiencing what he helped force Spike to experience. I am finding the origin of the slayer very interesting and I enjoyed the story of the two sisters. I am really enjoying this story and am looking forward to where you take it.

Thoroughly fascinating update - and somehow I'd missed the last couple of chappies so it's like Christmas x 3 yaaay! So heartening to see the gang being more considerate of each other and of their own actions too...oh and it looks like Xander might finally be ready to ride that wave LOL. Thanks for such an enjoyable read. More soon please.

Chapter 6 – Confessions         
I loved Buffy's reaction to finding out the chip was gone. It shows how much she has changed and how much she cares for Spike. I also loved her response when Spike said he got his soul for himself and not for her. What she had learned is a very important lesson in life.

Nice update, Mef- started it awhile ago, but just now finishing it.So, Giles and Spike aregoing to have a truce now? Like the idea that Spike wants Giles to recognize his goodness before he knows about the soul.

Chapter 5 – Gifts         
I like both the peace and the boon that Spike was gifted with because of his willingness to gain his soul again and his willingness to sacrifice for the world. And for Spike what a great gift, even more than his freedom, the forgiveness of one of his victims.

wow!! not what i expected...i wonder...did he not get the soul? because i didn't ever think he really needed it...hmm...have to read on and see i suppose

Not nice to test her, Spike, but I guess he needs to know.

Very interesting take on S6 and onward. Why does the First get to have power again? It originally did because Buffy was resurrected, making a weakness in the Slayer line that it could exploit. This is a different experience, with Buffy's death prevented in the first place. Or has it been building strength since Xander resuscitated Buffy in Season 1. It doesn't like souled vampires, though, as evidenced by it's playing with Angel.

Is she going to get mad? I hope not

I like that not only did Buffy realize that Xander's actions were inappropriate but that she stood up for herself and told him so. I loved Buffy's response to finding out that Spike had paid taxes. Tara is so smart and caring, I like what a positive influence she is for Willow.

I'm so glad that Buffy is aware of the attempts to control her life by the Scoobies and has put her foot down (after using it to kick Xander out the door...metaphorically speaking.Yea!!) I'm looking forward to your updates.

WAYyyyyyyy awesome update! {giggles with glee} Glad to see an update of this one. Love it completely. Adored the fact that Xander was put out on his ass. The nerve of him thinking that he could go into Buffy's house like that and rifle through her Mother's private things. That is just rude! Look forward to what else you have for us when RL time allows you to write more.

11/26/2005 07:53 am
Chapter 4 - Changes         
What a great story!! I love Buffy throwing Xander out of her house and letting Spike in. I don't know how Spike and Dawn still know what might happen now that Buffy didn't die but so far they're doing fine. More story please.
Thanks MarzBar, I always thought Xander needed to be tossed out on his ear. More story coming as soon as RL allows.

I love that Buffy really heard Dawn and that she saw the truth to her words. Very smart move on Spike's part giving Buffy a little time to make sure that him moving in is what she really wants.

Nice way of continuing after the jump backwards. I look forward to reading more. Sounds like Spike is going to go get his soul again. Hope it is a little easier for him. Good to see Buffy standing up to Giles already. I LOVED Dawn's speech to Xander. I was rooting her on the whole way.

Prologue         
Gosh what a thoroughly original premise! Loving it - while certainly optimistic it's not completely fluffy and your set up in the opening chapters was fantastic. I'm particularly interested in what disasters Dawn and Spike may still want to try and avert and what the cost to them will be. Oh and if Buffy were to discover what they've done I wonder what her reaction would be...gratitude for all they've risked and sacrificed? Disappointment that they flipped the 'natural' order of things on its head? Awe that they would change the world for her? Anger at their seeming manipulation? Or maybe a combination of all these things...honestly it's gonna have me up thinking about it until you next update. Help me avoid the insomnia and update soon please
