I agree fully with Buffy here. Spike's the one who should do the groveling not acting like a complete ass just because she doesn't want to spend her wedding night in a whorehouse. I think such exploits could wait for a more appropriate time.

Oh I hope Buffy and Spike can work it out.
They both have good reason to be upset. I guess we'll see how it goes.

Thanks again.

I think Buffy is uptight, they've already got an exciting sex life why wouldn't she want to see what Spike had in his bag of tricks. Can't wait to see what Xander finds when he see's Red. Great fic, you know I love it.
lol! I know Buffy's uptight but really that isn't the issue here. It's more one of her jumping to conclusions and a lack of trust.

Thanks, honey. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

great chappie - i loved the fact that willow has gotten older and the explanition again f the curse - great chapter
Thanks, honey!

I rather liked the way the curse worked. If it had simply aged her irreversibly then Giles etc. would have had more grounds for being up in arms, but as it was set up it was much more difficult for them to argue that it should be removed.

i'm sorry but i *so* agree with buffy...i feel sorry for spike but i think he should understand...i mean if its their wedding night shouldn't it be something that they *both* can look back at as something beautiful and special? and not just in the sexcapades kind of way? oh well...great chapter , can't wait to read more
LOL! Well, if both sides didn't have reason to think they were right then they wouldn't have an argument in the first place.

All I can suggest is that you keep reading...

Thanks, honey!

pitseems buffy screwed up, again. so little faith in spike. great read, as always. thanks for the chapter.
Thanks, honey!

I think it's safe to say that Buffy trusts him with the big things, but she wouldn't be her if she actually asked questions before she got on her high horse.

Caught up again. More story please.

As usual, there'll be more in the morning.

Many a slip twixt the proposal and the ceremony!
Thanks, honey!

I take it you know they'll work it out, but nothing between the pair of them could be straightforward.

Dang it! The site lost my review again. Okay, one more time...

Buffy so didn't handle that well. She insulted both his male and demon pride. I don't think it was that bad of an idea, as long as the place was safe, and clean. They wouldn't have to worry about any noise they made, and there's all kinds of fun toys. It's an attempt to start their marriage with a full sexual bonding experience. Perhaps Anya could explain to Buffy the benefits of such a night?

Anyway, she has a lot of groveling to do to get back in his good graces.

I love that Anya gets to be appreciated as a friend. The poor girl never got enough credit on the show.

Can't blame Dawn for her viewpoint, either. Willow going against the group decision had serious consequences, and Willow never took responsibility for it. She doesn't get a free write-off just because she's a "friend". Buffy has to start learning that everyone should be held accountable for their actions, not just the people she doesn't like, or the people she thinks are evil. Dawn never had Buffy's warped view of reality, and I'm so glad for that.
Thanks, honey, for taking all the time and effort to review twice. I know the site has been temperamental lately.

No, Buffy didn't handle that well at all, but she'll learn... and if she got things wrong with Spike, at least she did better with Anya.

As for Dawn, I think the only thing anyone might be arguing with her for is the relatively short amount of time she gave them to pack all Willow's things.
