Every new chapter is just more amazing than the last, Niamh... you are truly doing an exquisite job with each and every character! And, um...wow...for the sex. That's about all I'm capable of at this point, so great job! Can't wait for more, and congrats on your nominations!

Um...that would be Fleetwood Mac, correct? And I love this chap...thank God Giles is beating Xander over the head with the dunce stick, with Anya's assistance. Now, if only he'd save a few lashes with that stick for Angel...

Balula, I'm not exactly certain why you seem to think that this fic is far too long; to my eyes it has evolved in the most natural, fluid progression as possible, a progression that should be the envy of many other authors. Niamh has managed to take us from the period just following Buffy's death to now, through all of the changes and upheavals faced by the verse characters in both Sunndydale and LA, and all without it once seeming forced or rushed. The story is organic and credible, remarkable for its nuance and sensitive characterizations, and I for one hope that it continues far into the future. But then again, I also have the common decency to admire, or at the very least respect, the author's artistic vision. There are no shortage of ficlets here at the Realm...perhaps one of those would be a better use of your time than the pointless and uneducated flaming of gifted authors generous enough to share their visions with the rest of us.

Amazing chap, Ashlee... I hate Quentin! Please let Spike kill him in some gruesome, slow way...and let Giles and Buffy help? Great job...can't wait for more!

Thank you for chap 42 tonight. Love the twist on Buffy dying... and grr! for Skip. Stupid untrustworthy demon... Good job! and pretty baby name, too, while I'm at it.



With a Rebel Yell by Bloodshedbaby

Rated: NC-17 • 413 Reviews
Summary: Altered events of Season 2. Due to circumstances beyond her control, Buffy finds herself at an 80's Flashback night club where she finds the Billy Idol impersonator a bit, uh, familiar. This is a Spuffy vampire/slayer fic, not all-human.

Oh check you out!!! I love this song with a thousand fiery passions, so huge fangirl squee for that! But can't wait to see what happens next...



The New Me by Temptation

Rated: NC-17 • 75 Reviews
Summary: Set during season 5 after 'Intervention'. What would have happened if Angel had lost his soul after sleeping with Darla in ‘Reprise’? Vengeance in mind, he returns to Sunnydale to pursue the Slayer. Only Spike can save Buffy now. But will he be too late? Spuffy.

Damn! Amazing look inside Buffy's head during and after what was such a horrific scene to watch!

OK...so I'm all caught up...and I'm so completely hooked! I'd read different chaps here and there, but I did the whole thing in one setting today and it's amazing! I'm loving Spike and Dawn; the interactions are spot-on, and the support they give each other is very much like what I'd wished would've been allowed to continue. And ah, Angel... Buffy's completely right about him and them, and that he can't see it just goes to show how completely self-unknowing he's always been. Especially with not seeing Cordy right in front of him for years. But at least he had enough sense to bring Spike along, although I'm hoping Spike gets to gut him soon. The Scoobies... well, what can be said? They are as they always were: dense, blind to everything other than their own foregone conclusions, and above all certain that only they know what's best for Buffy. I'm looking forward to that showdown. And Melinda is excellent...and I loved the deal with the Elvis tickets. Hee! So you've hooked me but good...it's delicious!

This was just excellent... couldn't stop reading to go to bed. Really just amazing work, and an interesting and very effective recast of the Initiative, not to mention an amazing S/B love story. Fantastic!

Author's Response: Sorry I kept you awake, but very glad you liked it and reviewed it. Thank you so much!! :)



We Made Love by chelle

Rated: 18 • 5 Reviews
Summary: This is a sequel to Wet and Wild. Spike tells the story of his life with Buffy where W&W left off. It's got a tragic ending. Consider yourself warned.

Absolutely beautiful... a definite tearjerker, but an exquisite picture of Spike's love for Buffy and their last day together.

Author's Response: Thank you! I really appreciate it! It's a sad one, alright! :*( Thanks again!
