Okay, so…ummm, extremely nervous about this chapter. I just want to remind everyone that it is Season 3 Spike, and therefore he is evil. Not to mention drunk. He is very, very drunk.

If my planning goes right (and please don’t hold me to it) this is about as angsty as I intend to go. The fic itself is described (in my head, at least) as a fluffy fic, bordering on comedy. However, I didn’t want to shorthand the characters…at least not so soon in the story. I’m sure I’ll take them plenty out of character later, but for now, I’d like to at least try to maintain the pretense that I know how to write Spike before he gets bitten with the Buffy-lovin’ bug.

Having said that, I have major, major issues with non-con, which made very this incredibly hard to write. So, be prepared…some of this may be perceived (and likely will be) as non-con. But hopefully, the fluffiest non-con you’ve ever come across.

Thanks to my betas for talking me through it.

I so appreciate all the comments/reviews on this fic, particularly the last chapter. I’m gonna try to get this revved back into the fluffy/comedic light and not do the “expected” thing when it comes to non-con…but at the same time, treat the non-con for what it was. However, I do think it’s important to note that, while Buffy was hurt by Spike’s actions, she was more terrified of her own reactions. It was the only way I could talk myself into doing non-con. Trust me, that scene was specifically for plot purposes. I wouldn’t have done it otherwise.

Again, thank you so much!

Nothing profound…just want to express my extreme thanks to everyone who has read/reviewed this story. I really can’t tell you guys how much it means to me. I know I keep saying it, but the response has been really, really overwhelming, and, well…that’s about it. Like I said, nothing profound…just the gratitude of an extremely thankful author. =)

This chapter ran a little long, but I didn’t have the heart to cut it. Hope you all don’t mind.

***bounces nervously*** I really, really hope this was worth the wait.

As always, THANK YOU all for your wonderful support. It makes me all kinds of fuzzy insides. =)

All right. Here it is. Finally some talk of Spike lacks so drastically in the knowledge of claims. I so appreciate everyone who’s trusted me this far. You guys are so incredibly awesome. ***HUGZ***
