Oh, and forgot to mention that I love love love the sparring... I love it in any story when Buffy/Spike's equality is stressed. They're so well-matched, in fighting ability, in loneliness, in strength, stamina, etc. Love how you had Buffy defend Spike when he was out on his feet in the sparring session. Great story!

Author's Response: Thank you! I always stress that equality, because I believe Spike is Buffy’s true match, whether in physical strength or in the depth of emotion that allows him to be the only one who can give Buffy the support she needs to deal with everything thrown at her. No one else can, and that’s why I have Buffy starting to realize that during that sparring match.

I have read this story multiple times... I love it. I love Spike's dialogue about fighting and the hierarchy of taking care of your loved ones. Love his gentle approach and seduction and the little clues of how fast and how hard he's fallen in love. Love how you highlight "always adapt, always look for a solution" attitude, and how noble he is when he cares to be. Buffy, of course, is a dimwit to be so oblivious to his feelings, but at least she's so much more gracious to him here than on the show... and having them stranded together provides a nice excuse for her to do so, which allows her to examine his attributes and allows her to finally realize she could love him. Really nicely done. This was my first AU Buffy fanfic to read, and it opened my eyes!

Author's Response: This was my first AU story as well and I was learning the whole time I was writing it. In canon, Buffy always accepts what Giles and the Scoobies tell her and avoids really looking at things. I wanted her in a position where she has the time and the space to really think without any interference from well-meaning and prejudiced friends, so that she would finally realize that Spike was the only true partner for her. And Spike is always tender and considerate towards those he cares about. He may go about it wrong, as in S6 canon, but he really tries. I’m so glad you like it!

What I liked about this story is how you pulled me in right away. Less about the porn and more about the characters and the plot. Well done.

Author's Response: The porn is fun to write, but what I really love is that lovely dynamic between Buffy and Spike's characters and I always end up focusing on that. I'm so glad you liked it! Thank you!

I can't believe I had let such a wonderful story slip by me. I absolutely LOVED it. Sooo creative! The story arc was very believable and the character development was fantastic. The new dimension was unique and the touches of their language added to its authenticity. I can't rave about this story enough. You did an outstanding job with this one. I hope to read many more from you. Thanks ever so.

Author's Response: Oh, thank you! This was my first try at an alternate world and I'm so glad you found it believable! I'm working on more right now.

A good story, and in my honest opinion this is left open for a sequal. Short stories but AWESOME plot, more character depth than moives or anything else brings. Please more stories more work.

Author's Response: I'm so glad you liked it! Thank you! The good thing about novellas is that it allows more space to explore character than movies do. There won't be a sequel to this one, because it sort of felt finished to me, but I am working on another, plus a sequel to 'Running Wild.'

your endnotes, are those true words with it's meaning, or did you just make them up? Great start by the way. I'm liking it already!

Author's Response: They're made up, but based on an existing linguistic structure, so that they would have an internal logic. I'm so glad you're liking the story! Thank you!

Can't tell u how much i enjoyed reading this story . I love the fact that u don't turn Spike into a poncy , begging for affection lapdog, he's always her equal in your fics. Hope yo write another long fic soon.

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I don't see Spike that way either and see him as an equal. I'm working on a long fic, then got sidetracked on to a short one that one reviewer suggested. The short one will probably be up first.

I started to read your beautiful story and I couldn't put it down. I thought the character were so realistic. You made me believe this could have happen. You are one of my favourite author and I love all your stories. When I cannot seem to find anything new, I simply go read one of your stoires and I am throughly satisfied.

Author's Response: Oh, wow! Thank you so much! I love these characters so much that they're completely real to me. I see it like a movie playing in my head and just write that down. I'm so glad you like it!

Oh-oh-oh...! And I forgot. The dragon-meets-Buffy-and-Spike section was wonderful. The dragon's dialog was an excellent mix of arrogance, cruelty, wisdom, dry humor, and even a bit of kindness. I don't recall ever seeing the combination work out so well, before.

Good, too, Spike's planning for the dragon, on both occasions. After all, he's not bad with planning; this, we know. He's just usually too impatient to get on with things. But presumably both the responsibility and the sheer amount of slayer tail he was getting calmed him down. ;)

Thus endeth the second part of my review. Sorry for not putting it up, before!

Author's Response: Oh, thank you! I was really fond of the dragon. I could see him clearly in my head , this complicated persona. He sort of wrote himself. And Spike was determined to get things right for Buffy. He's careless about himself, knowing that he can usually get himself out of things. But he planned things for Dru and did keep her out of trouble for a hundred years.

What I liked most about this was the turnabout and maturing of the relationship between Buffy and Spike. I can honestly say that of all the BtVS fanfiction I've read, this is the one that makes that reversal--from hatred and self-interest, to love and empathy--work best. Especially good were the final chapters, not so much for the Scoobies (who were admittedly sketchy) but for the way Buffy came to discover some home truths in a fashion that made sense and never seemed forced. Good job!

Author's Response: Oh, thank you! That was what I was focusing on in this story. The plot, etc., was all geared to bringing that about. I hoped it would be believable - Buffy maturing and Spike becoming a champion for her. I'm so glad you liked it!

I'm thinking it's a good thing I found this one late in the process and didn't get too used to having a new chapter each day. I'm still going to miss it!

I absolutely loved this story! You did a great job with all aspects of it - Spuffy, the other dimension, etc. The reaction of Willow was a refreshing change. And, of course, there couldn't have been a more perfect ending.

I hope we'll be seeing more from you in the near future. Thanks so much for sharing this with us.

Author's Response: Oh, thank you so much! This was a new endeavor for me - balancing romance and plot. I'm so glad you think I got it right! Thank you! Already working on the next one.

I just loved how Spike kept saying "Bonus!". I could totally hear and see him saying it in my head.

This is hands down my favorite story of yours. The Spuffy was spot on, of course, but I also enjoyed the other dimension and original characters you created. You are a very talented writer who is growing and improving with each story you write.!

Please ease my disappointment at the ending of this fic by telling me you've got another in the works. I can't wait to read more of your work!

Author's Response: I only started writing November of last year and writing Spuffy is teaching me how. I'd never tried plot and world building before. I'm so glad you liked it! I'm already working on a new fic and I hope you'll like that one as well. It's sort of Spike vs the Initiative.
