This is one of your best chapters.  Tight.  Well thought out...

And fun.  Yes, fun!  Even with the Sparky torture.

I love the conversations with Giles... all of it... and finally, I adored the "should I worry about what you would say" X 2 in two slightly different accents!  Very, very funny... and I think Giles finally does 'get' it!


Blue's Stories
Healing Soldiers is a favorite of mine, too. In the space of roughly twelve hours, we go through a gamut of emotions, touch on a bunch of situations (a few with big moments), and get in some great funny moments, besides. This is one of the chapters that didn't change drastically from first draft to final. I never had to give it more than minor tweaking. It came together just right the first time.

Glad you're still enjoying it! Thanks!

I'm glad Giles has been brought on board, it seems to be making a big difference to his attitude.
It took a while, but he and Buffy are finally in a good place. Acceptance, honesty, and the beginnings of  a new relationship. It isn't perfect, but it's a start.
