1. Chapter 1: Arrival by Linnae13 [Reviews - 12] (2361 words)
Hi guys! This is my second fic! It's gonna be long, just warning you. I love reviews and appreciate the time you put into writing them! I may not respond to them all, but i DO read them all so please feel free to let me know what you think! (please no flaming, constructive criticism is always appreciated though!)
WARNING: I am writing this as I go along. I've got a basis for it, and an idea for places where I'm headed, but the warnings are not set in stone. I can promise there will be no rape, Buffy/other, or Spike/other. However, I might (for example) decide to do an ATTEMPTED rape scene, or i might want to kill off a character (most likely not a main one so relax), but just be prepared. I'm sorry, but i am telling you now!
2. Chapter 2: Finding the Welcome by Linnae13 [Reviews - 3] (4366 words)
Okay, here's chapter two! Characters' personal thoughts are in between these little thingies: * *
I already had this chapter written, and so this one is here faster than the whole of the story will be coming to you, im just warning you. I wanted to get the first few chapters posted quickly because this story isn't very detailed in the beginning, im laying the ground work. (P.S. the chapters for this story will not necessarily be updated at the same times as Opposites Attract.)
Thanks to all who are reading this one and/or OA!! *hugs!*
6. Chapter 6: Unexpected Expectancy by Linnae13 [Reviews - 6] (3614 words)
I know it's been a while, and i'm sorry. But i've learned that when it comes to my updates I tend to be sporadic, but try not to let it go past a month in time. Hopefully i'll never get that far in between updates with this fic. Anyways, here's chapter 6, enjoy!
8. Chapter 8: Building a... Something by Linnae13 [Reviews - 7] (3257 words)
Hey i know it's been a while, unfortunately RL sucks and i cant manage my time... at all. Which has always been a huge problem for me. But here is chapter 8, and i promise I wont leave this story unfinished!
9. Chapter 9: Backtracking by Linnae13 [Reviews - 5] (5426 words)
I hope you guys like this chapter, it's a little longer than normal :)
Also, my heart goes out to all of those who are affected by the tragic deaths in Newtown, CT and China. R.I.P. to the victims
15. Chapter 15: So Much for Distance by Linnae13 [Reviews - 4] (4874 words)
I got a review asking if I imagine certain places/people when describing things in this story, and some examples were requested. Now, you dont have to see these things as I do, I'm just giving a few personal examples. You can imagine them as however you wish! :)
Leonard's was inspired sorta from the diner in the music video "Meet Virginia" by Train (great song if you wanna look it up!)
When writing Blake I cant help but think of the actor Ian Somerhalder (though i dont see them as identical, imagining that guy really does help me imagine Blake). And The character Stevo was inspired from the character Cam Rohan from Lisa Kleypas romance novels (both Stevo and C.R. are gypsies and have similar appearances). Mostly everything else is just my imagination run wild, but if i add other things which are specifically inspired, ill let you know!
Thanks to everyone reading and keeping up with this story! I hope you enjoy this chapter (SEE END NOTES TOO!).
16. Chapter 16: Dreamers Weep by Linnae13 [Reviews - 6] (6743 words)

also, if there are any obvious mistakes in this i apologize. I was very tired while posting and final-editing.
18. Chapter 18: The New One by Linnae13 [Reviews - 5] (4777 words)
Okay so this is fresh off the presses, if you see many mistakes i apologize. And if it is hard to read let me know.
Also, thank you all for the reviews and for still reading this fic!
Finally, my muse has been a bitch lately with this story. I JUST made my deadline again and ugh i just hope you all enjoy this chapter! (P.S. I recently wrote a oneshot which i had started a while ago, but i finished it and posted it yesterday as an attempt to get away from this fic and maybe therefore refresh my muse. Didn't really work but if you're interested you can check out Red Bloody Lipstick (a mating fic)!
19. Chapter 19: You Haven't Fallen Down the Rabbit Hole by Linnae13 [Reviews - 6] (3048 words)
Alright, so I'm a bit happier with this chapter than I was with the last. I really hope you all like it! Also, thanks for the reviews and for still reading! *smoochies*
20. Chapter 20: Fight or Flight by Linnae13 [Reviews - 9] (3883 words)
NOTICE: Child abuse warning for this chapter. I have a whole explanation in the last chapter's end notes in case anyone didn't read those, so you can go back and look before you start this chapter. Don't worry, it's not graphic, it's a memory, and very short.
Okay, I hope you all enjoy!
23. Chapter 23: For Better or for Bumpies by Linnae13 [Reviews - 10] (3278 words)
ATTENTION: Alright so due to the site possibly going offline for a little while(see the home page), future chapters of this story will be posted at http://www.booksie.com/fan_fiction/novel/aliciaparavola/bfmd-(be-fearless-my-dear)/chapter/1 You can click on the newest chapter as it is updated (which will be about every two weeks). I just posted all of the current chapters onto that site, but it's not just Chapters 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. For example, chapters 3-5 are all under "chapter 3" for the way the site is laid out, and I wanted to post as quickly as possible, but not all of them are like that.
FUTURE chapters will ONLY be posted there IF the Spuffy Realm goes offline.
There are no words to explain how much I appreciate the work and upkeep those who run this site put in and continue to do. And fortunately, they're making it so we will all still be able to read the stories already posted on here, writers just wont be able to update. I love TSR and if it does go offline, I hope it's only temporary. I don't know Pari personally, but they're a wonderful person for keeping this site up and I really wish them the best, as well as everyone else who keeps the Realm up to date and working, all of those who are able to donate, and everyone who reads and visits.
Love to all! -Linnae
