Really enjoyed this story quite a lot. I love how you entwine bits from Dreaming and regular canon. Makes for a great, fun read. Scary bits! Wow.
Finally my curiosity overcame my reluctance to read more about Spike with Lily. I'm so glad it did. Wonderful tale, well told. I shall look out for the sequel(s)
read the whole story over two nights - I usually do not like fics with babies/pregnancies but I have to say you drew me in probably due to the great writing. The characters were true to voice and the original ones believable. This was one of the best fics I've read in ages - will now catch some more of your other ones. Thanks for the great read!
love the story please write a part 2
Just finished reading from the beginning. Great fic! Thanks for sharing. :)
Ha! love how you even put 'Normal Again' as an AU! God! How i would love to be able to have your mind!
wow, i am just blown away by this chapter! you are so imaginative! you have everything plotted out perfectly and you can definitely see how you are not making things up as you go along like some writers do (myself included). and i am just loving the au's. and how it really happened on 'Angel' was included and your other stories its pretty awesome! and the whole guardian thing about how she didnt die and there is only 1 and how she was the woman spike fed from was just brilliant! also, question: im getting confused since im reading so much of your stuff, was the woman spike fed from mentioned in the other story knowing the price or the one that came before that? or just in this?
Author's Response: No, just in this, I was half way through fleshing out the plot, when I dreamed about Spike (nothing new there!) draining all the blood out of me but I wasn't dying and also I wasn't myself but an older blonder lady. When I woke up I realized that Spike meeting up with The Guardian would explain how he got all the way back to Sunnydale, even though he only had a motorbike and was insane enough to go out in the sun and fry! (Joss never said!) As for making it up as I go, I sorta do except once I've done that, I re-write and re-write until it all makes sense. When I started 'Moving On' I only had two scenes written, Lily and Spike's sex scene and Lily's death, plus a reality where William's mum was still 'alive'. A lot of fleshing out had to happen and I never post a chapter until the one following it is written! That way, you have a buffer. Hope this answer wasn't too long and boring! I hope you enjoy chapter 16 and thanks for reviewing.
im lovin this story, and i think its pretty awesome that one of the other realities is one from your other story
Yay! hes got the Gem of Amara!! Now if only it could give him a reflection as well, then he could truly know just how sexxy he really is...
wow, this is totally different than anything i expected, but i love it so far. although, to be honest, the fact that they are related is kinda creepin me out, since they are sleepin together...
Now things are going fast, Buffy being pregnant and Giles arriving, but it's really good.
Sorry to learn that Giles has arrived - I reallyed wanted him to be the one that Lily's father had captured. Happy news about the growing family!! Thanks for such a wonderful, original fic!! Looking forward to an update.
I like this so much. It seems like Robert has captured Andrew.
It's good to have this story back.
Can we slaughter Andrew and Giles or send them to the dimension without shrimp or something worse? Love, love, love this tale.
Thanks for the wonderful update!! I'm looking forward to Jennifer Anne kicking Andrews's behind followed by some Spuffiness. And I hope real life gets better for you soon.
Such a chapter! All the undercurrents revealed and now vamp Lily is on the lose and ready to do major damage. Calling all guardians! Can't wait for the next chapter to see what happens.
More, more, more please! Is there Andrew torture coming up? Giles bashing?
Love how you've matched William with Buffy from the insane asylum and I'm kinda glad to have a Lily I can hate without guilt!! Looking forward to more of the wonderfully original story!
Vampire Lily seems to have really strong powers, I hope that Robert survives.
Now they are reunied good, but it seems a bit easy.
Well! Apparently... I was half asleep when I wrote my review. I thought the story was finished; that's what you get when you review at 1am.
I really am enjoying your story, and I really do like Lily (sorry to see her go)
Loving this story!! Can't wait for more!
I really enjoyed your story. I found it to be quite original and very interesting. I even enjoyed Lily (I know one of the minority). It seems to me you have left us with the possibility of a sequel - the Guardian, William, Dalton, Dawn being a daughter, Jennifer Anne, and of course Spike and Buffy together.
Looking forward to more.
