Interesting chapter. Darla is pretty cool

Interesting...seems there's more to the Darla situation that she is currently telling. It also seems like Spike is unsure of her motives and his a complicated history with her. I wonder what happened to Angelus and how Buffy will respond to the offer to purchase Spike

Hmm once again the Master rises in a Sunnydale without Buffy but I'm surprised that Darla did him in but the logic makes sense. I'd like to know what is going on in Buffy's mind. She seems awfully reticent re "thoughtful". Has being in the Circle affected her natural ebullience or doesn't her character have that in her in this fic? I love seeing Spike's POV...just want to see more of Buffy re her motivations.
Well, there's more of Buffy's reactions in the next chapter, at least at the begining. And this Buffy isn't so much thoughtful as cautious. She's used to be punished for acting in ways other than she's told, so she doesn't act out as much. And ebullience is a great word. With Spike's help she may get some of that back.

What's Darla up to? Is Buffy really going to give up her prized vampire? Is Buffy going to have another accidental sex episode? Inquiring minds want to know.
Thanks, I'm glad you want to know. But there's a lot of plot to be coverd in the next chapter, so it may take me a bit. I'll try to have it soon though.

Ensouled Angelus, perhaps? This really puts a great twist as to her interest in Spike. Wondered how the real world was handling things without a slayer since Buffy's there. Nice touch that it was Darla who closed the Hellmouth this time. Wonder if any of the scoobies are still alive, since she obviously killed Jesse by now and had been to SunnyD. Wow, the thought really blows the mind. Great chapter, IM. Thanks for posting.
Thanks. And there will be a lot more information about how the world got along without Buffy in the next few chapters.

Love the falshback with Darla....that seemed so believeable even though I've never really pictured Spike and Darla while he "loved" Dru. It makes lots of sense the way you describe it. Great update.

Thanks. I have a huge soft spot for Spike and Darla, although that will be the only place I indulge in it in this story. I just the think the two of them were both sort of on the edges of the family. And I think from time to time when Angelus and Dru left them out, they must have gotten up to their own mischief.

Closing herself off again...

Angelus not well? Soul issues..poison..crazy-making visions? Darla's an interesting one for loyalties...she's unpredictable.

Of course, I do want to see Spike free.
I think you may be the only one to want to see Spike free. The general consensus seems to be that Buffy shouldn't sell.

Aww.... don't sell him, Buffy
It's going to be a tough decision.

I could see Darla just shoving the Master into a Hellmouth like that. I'm eagerly awaiting more. I like the concept and the way it's told.
Thanks. I just couldn't see Darla ever really wantig to destroy the world. I think she's a lot like Spike in that respect.

hmmm...she seems to be softening to him...i wonder if she'll agree to darla's offer...and if spike will really want to go...another fascinating chapter, looking forward to more
Thanks. Other than to say you'll find otu Buffy's decision in the next chapter, I won't give you any clues as to what she'll do.
