Good that Buffy went to see Faith, it went well too.  At last Buffy came clean to Spike, Willy's place might not be the most romantic venue but it works for me!
My stance on Buffy is that she really isn't the romantic type anymore. I think all the romance and cuddly, open affection attitudes have been sapped out of her by this time. After all her years at the slayer, and the resurrection's aftermath, she's different. This may be a season 5 story, but this is a Buffy who went through seasons 6 and 7. General Buffy's emotional dam is finally breaking, but it's never going to result in a flood of cutesy 'I love yous'. She's just not that girl anymore.

I'm glad to see people enjoying the low-key presentation of the 'OMG, we've been waiting for this forever' moment at Willy's, and the welcoming attitudes toward Faith. I freakin' LOVE Faith. I wish I'd had an excuse to make that prison scene longer.

This was a very funny chapter.  Funny and poignant. 

I felt a little sorry for the first.    The spell is complete now, isn't it?  They've already changed the future irrevocably.

I loved the scene with Faith.  I like her. I think she's underused, so I'm glad to see you're integrating her into the storyline.

I really am looking forward to the next chapter.  I cannot wait for your updates!!

Yup, that's it. The 2003 they knew no longer exists. Year 2000 Willow took it away as a possibility by agreeing to go in for training. Things can't happen the exact same way anymore.

I love Faith. As I told another reviewer, I would have loved an excuse to make the prison scene longer. Back in True Stories (chapter 9) I sort of addressed my Faith thoughts. She's a lot like Spike, and even Buffy thinks they might have made a match. Just imagine if he'd fallen for the other slayer. They could have torn the world down together, and her sass with his snark would have been so, so fun.

Chapter 17 is one of the ones I'm nervous about. The story takes a turn, one I'm sure a lot of people won't like. I've just posted it, and I'm expecting some serious fall out in the reviews. The next week or so is going to be a lot less friendly on the review pages, I fear. I can only hope people read my chapter notes and trust me with this.
