That was awesome! It was so cinematic, the way you described the movement, and the parts splitting, then coming back together, just wow! It was like I could really see it. Plus, Dawn crushing on Spike is always great, because she thinks the things the audience is thinking.
Thanks! I'm glad the scene worked for you. I was actually a little concerned about Dawn crushing on Spike, because he's so big brotherly it can squick people... but it's so clearly an innocent girlish thing.

Lovely. I really liked how you blended their three distinct experiences and emotions together. You've got me wondering how this is all going to work out. More please!
Thanks! The song really seemed to fit their situation.

I'm so impressed with what you're doing here. I loved the three-way scene with Spike and Buffy and Dawn (poor Dawn!). You weave the emotions in an out as skillfully as you do the music and the result is just...lovely. You choreographer-with-words, you! Please update soon!
Thank you, Alia, you're so sweet! I appreciate the lovely comments!

This is absolutely wonderful! Really enjoying it. I'm impressed that you're managing to work a credible plot into the story too!
Thanks, I'm glad you like it. The plot actually isn't so hard, as it's a lot like the actual season 6... just with singing and dancing. You just gotta find the songs to match.

That little declaration from Giles to Buffy was very unexcepted, not at all what I would have thought he'd say. Poor Dawn, she hasn't got a chance. It's hard at any age to be in love with someone who doesn't feel the same way but especially for a teen. Looking forward to finding out what's still making them sing and what kind of spell it is. wonderful chapter, thanks.
I was actually surprised that Giles on the show didn't make a bigger deal out of Buffy lying about heaven. He's supposed to be her Watcher - shouldn't he be concerned about something like that? Thanks for the review!

I can't express how much I'm loving this story. The Dawn/Buffy/Spike song was great.
Aww, thanks! I'm glad you like it!

Lovely musical triangle there. This is a challenging project and you are doing a great job with it.

Thank you! I appreciate it... sometimes it seems daunting, but as a musical nut, it's a lot of fun.

Please warn me if there's going to be any Spawn as it has an unpleasant effect on my digestion!
Don't worry, no Spawn in the works. I actually debated that song, because of the Spawny undertones, but I decided it worked because Spike shows absolutely no interest in Dawn. I definitely think they have a brother/sister relationship, but she's at that age where emotions and attractions can be confusing, and sibling-like affection for a non-relative can be mistaken for "boyfriend love." So, having a hot older brother figure like Spike around can make for some one-sided lusty feelings. But they are most assuredly one-sided. No Spawn! blech...

Great chapter, loved when Spike, Buffy and Dawn sang.
Thanks for the review! Glad you liked it.

Buffy is starting to realise that she's been lying to herself? Poor Dawn, teenage crushes can be hard... but I am sure that she would be happy for Spike and Buffy if (when *looks hopeful* lol) they do get together!

I have a feeling Willow is still going to cause trouble... she certainly didn't take kindly to the chastisement.

Very nice chapter. Thank you!
Have hope! This is a musical! Also, a musical where everyone tells the truth, which could make things even more awkward for Buffy, but at least she can't keep hiding her feelings. Thanks for the review!

Giles wants to talk to Tara, huh? What's up? Is it about what they sang in the Magic Box?

Stupid Buffy, poor Dawn, poor Spike.
I'm not sure that they could hear each other singing in the Magic Box (one of those conventions of musicals, you know?) but Giles definitely noticed something was up with Willow, and he saw the discomfort between Willow and Tara.
