Oh, Angel, you big dumbo. At least this time he's funny-stupid, not infuriating-stupid. I didn't get the list in the last chapter, but now I looked back at it and laughed my head off. "Buffy-threesome???" Oh, how I wish Spike could see that list...

And the coat! The idea of Tara playing the Big Bad is hilarious and cute.

great set of books - very much enjoyed reading everything -

Thank you, honey! I'm really glad you're enjoying it all (again).

OH I so love what Buffy and Spike did to Angel. I wonder what Angel was talking about though on the phone.
Lol! That's because you didn't understand Angel's little list the chapter before...

Thanks, honey!

That was fun. Hearing Angel get all bent out of shape and thinking that they had a threesome, pretty funny. I just love how Spike loves his girl's, all of them. Thanks for the wonderful chappie.
Spike/William was born to be a big brother and we get the impression that he never got the chance. Having all the women in Revello is like his second chance.

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

Love this chapter! Okay the last one I can read before I go to bed - this story is soooooo addicting. I meant just to read a few chapters and then the next thing you know I am lost in the story you are weaving. Excellant story - telling. It is amazing. I really really love it!
Thanks, honey!

I'm glad you're enjoying it so much, and it's times like this that make me glad it's no longer a WIP because now you can get as caught up in it as you want and just keep reading all the way through to its natural conclusion.

that was hilarious...i love that phone conversation...poor angel....and on a sadder note, poor poor dawnie...she's still hurting so bad...on to more now
Yep, Dawnie never really does have time to get over things in the timeframe of the story, but things are going to get so busy soon that she's not going to have time to dwell.

And, yep, yet again, I fail to resist setting Angel up to look like an idiot.

Thanks, honey!

that was fun. thank you especially enjoyed, in no particular order(on the hilarity scale) anya telling off xander; buffy baitng angel;"I'd have to castrate you;" and "Left him in the dust back in LA." great read, thank you again.
Thank you, honey!

As you'll find if you can access the new chapter (I say, if because it took about six attemppts to upload it - do hope I don't look later and find it repeated over and over...) that much of the fun was down to an idea my beta t_geyer had, so I can't take all the credit, but I'm really glad that you enjoyed how it turned out. For out and out funny, I think that has to be one of my favourite chapters in the whole series.

Thank you!

*cackles hysterically* Don't make me laugh so hard! It makes me cough...LOLOLOLOLOL...

I love this story, really do, and I love that you update like clockwork. I can look between midnight and 1 AM my time, and there's a new chapter.

Fancy dinner with Angel, eh? Wow, things have really changed. Everybody's growing up...

Love Anya telling Xander off, again. Cracks me up, every time.

It's funny, in James' Q & A post today, one of his answers was about how you can't walk the way he did in the coat, without the coat, and not look silly. Tara's right - you just have to act Bad.
Thanks, honey!

As I think I told you yesterday, much of the credit for this bit has to go to my beta, but it's just so much fun to play with Clueless Angel.

As for the updates, I'm not anything like as conscientious with the ones I'm in the process writing, but since this one is complete, all I have to do is check for typos that were missed first time, or ellipses that somewhere in all the file conversions have ended up as full-stops and post it up, and I've kind of got into the habit of doing it first thing when I wake up, sometimes even before coffee.

Angel and Spike? - I guess the women are civilising influences.

Anya is smart enough to know if she doesn't break Xander of his bad habits now, then twenty years down the line, she'll bear a marked resemblance to his mother. Guess he's damn lucky she thinks he's worth the effort.

Hee! That coat has a lot to answer for!

Thanks again!
