You've done well with Dawn, still a kid but not so bratty as the original.  Buffy and Spike are kind of sad really -- hopefully they'll go on a date soon!
There was a balancing act with Dawn. I gave her more room to be mature, but didn't want her to come off as totally adult. It sounds simple, but it was more of a challenge for me than something that should have been far more difficult: Writing Drusilla dialogue that is crazy-abstract and still makes sense.

I suspect that means I'm closer to being insane than being a teenager.

brilliant chapter.  a little too peaceful, but like Dawn, I think I know crazy's around the corner soon again.

can't wait for the 16th.  damn, you've made an addict!
And here it is again. I think this review is Dracula. It ALWAYS comes back.

Glitchy, glitchy. This review keeps returning to the unanswered queue. Odd.

Here's something for you to chew on while you wait on chapter 25:

Up until about ten days ago, Resident Strangers didn't exist. Not a word of it. This allegedly "brilliant" chapter was the "extra chapter" we discussed previously, my emergency run at filling in some gaps. As I said before, it came together easily, but I played with it, edited it, and stressed over it up until the reviews started coming in.  I can breathe again now. It feels like it added some much-needed stuff to the story, and I apparently can do ok with occasional creative writing on a deadline.

I'm so, so happy you enjoyed it.
