That was touching, and kind of funny.  Especially the part where Dawn comes in. 

Of course Buffy was grieving... and of course, in a real world, Spike would have known this and at least put her out of her misery.

I have to say I never did understand the strategy of the writers in season five of Angel.  There's no way that an in character Spike would ever stay there and not go to see Buffy unless someone had told him she didn't care.  They could have finessed it by saying she was busy in England setting the new council up, and have them talk on the phone, and maybe even visit her (off screen)...  but they way they wrote it was totally out of character for Spike.  Of course, it's given some of us fodder for coming up with reasons for why he might stay away, but fan fic aside, it was a terrible choice if they weren't estranged...  and the way things ended with them was epic, not estranged.

Regarding the trip to Italy: There is no way he wouldn't make a scene with the Immortal... Even if he was in touch with his inner William, he'd at least 'test the waters' by going over and saying 'hi', especially with Angel in tow -- b/c they were competitors... Though what Angel thought he could offer her without the soul permanently intact never made sense... but that's just one more reason I hated that episode.  Oddly, I started out life liking Angel the series better, but once I bought the two series and I saw the whole arc, Buffy (and Spike) won hands down.

Ah, glad you liked it. Had to think for a minute to remember what it was about. :)  (there are drawbacks to being so prolific - sometimes you end up going ..."Oh? really? did I write that?" lol)  I'm not thrilled with Buffy's ongoing tears - why would the reader cry if the character is wailing all the time? - but I tried to injuect enough humor to make up for the OOC weeping.  I can see her imagining him every night - he'd been such a big part of her life for so long, especially that last year.

Yeah, I couldn't see Spike just calmly accepting that Buffy was right there in the room having a good time and not making some kind of a scene. The whole episode was pretty disappointing. IMHO

“Who would I talk to if I stop dreaming about you?”--Oh my god... I am in love with this story. So simple and sweet and clearly they have more issues to work through, but the innocence... talking like no one is listeneing or at the very least talking as though you wouldn't be judged. So simple and they were so marvelous. Wonderful story. Thank you so much for sharing.
Thank you for the thoughtful review!*hugs*

I really liked that. It is a cool idea to have Buffy hallucinate about Spike. One thing, though, the statement of "until his last breath" doesn't really work b/c Spike is a vamp and doesn't breathe. Maybe you should use "until dust" or something.
LOL - doesn't need to, but does everytime he tries to scent something or speak. Regardless of the inconsistent (and physically impossible) canon treatment of vampires and breathing, air movement in and out is necessary both for inhaling scents and speech, so I think I'll leave it. Thanks for bringing it to my attention though - in another circumstance it would, no doubt, have needed fixing. :)

Absolutely beautiful. Thank you.
