The Writing on the Wall by Holly
Chapter: Chapter Four

From chapter 4 on, the entire story is posted in bold.  This makes if quite difficult to read.  Not sure what happened, but maybe a broken html tag?  Reading long passages in bold or italics is hard on the reader's eye.  Hope you'll be able to fix it without too much trouble.  Interesting story so far, even though I ended up cutting and pasting and unbolding it so I could read it painlessly.  Don't worry, when I'm done, I will delete.

Hopefully Xander will at least listen to Anya for once!  It's a fine thing Spike is doing and he deserves everyone's support.

Wow, I am so loving this story, you really have the emotion and the buffyverse rythym down. I actually had thought out a story along these lines, what would have happened if she was in hell? I'm so glad to see someone writing that sort of thing and doing it so well.
More Please!!!

This is just a beautiful story. You write their emotions so well. All the pain, all the anguish, the anxiety, the hope, the dread---you manage to capture it all in those few words and actually make the reader feel what the characters are feeling.

Really, very great job. I can't wait to read more

They really should have learned by now that Dawn is always going to find out stuff that she wants to. And... Yay for Anya!
More please.

Love the dynamics here.  Xander is the only one still swimming in the Nile...they ALL see it, that it really is love and the self-sacrificing type that Spike feels.  They also don't seem to doubt that he WILL get Buffy out.  Xander (the penis as Anya so perfectly called him) needs multiple head smaps.

Love this...lots of THINKING with them all.  Loved Spike spilling his guilt at the table (anyone who doubts his love or that he is far from Angelus who would NEVER feel guilt over anything without the soul is just deliberately blind) was crackling with emotion.

You are doing a splendid job as always.  Love the humor in face of horror. That is a real life touch just like laughter at wakes.  Squirrels and green beans make for a funny hell and it hit them all that way...the combination of tragedy and fear with the humorous.

Wonderful.
