Well-sustained mood, nice character voicing, and great dialog that reveals deep, troubled waters.

That is truly terrifying... and feels utterly right. That he'd go into it with his eyes wide open and 100% aware.
I really like this in spite of Buffy's feelings of loss... some times the right thing to do will cost you everything.
Typical Spike fan that I am, I never felt wearing the amulet was necessary to complete his 'hero's journey / evolution. But until I wrote this, I never looked at it from the perspective that maybe *he* did (prior to the amulet activating, when he insisted on seeing it through). And Buffy knowing what it's coming is deeply unsettling. Giles' concerns about her as a general vs. her as Spike's still-close ex is put to the ultimate test. It's kind of awful in every direction. Thanks for reviewing, Blue!
