Ahhh, it makes me so happy to re-read this story. It's on my list of top stories of all time, honestly. I laugh so hard every time I read it, Spike and Joyce inhabiting DeNile-land together, Spike laughing at Joyce while the reader laughs at him....
I love this take the Spike / Joyce situation. Feels very true to his viewpoint.

Right on the mark. Fast, smart and brash. I love the way you captured Spike's voice so well in the 3rd person. It works suprisingly well. And the Humor? ""Constant Comment''. He thinks the constant comment must be that it's bleeding awful. If a minion ever brought him a mug of tea that bad---and they sometimes did---he'd pour it over them, and then pound their heads in with the kettle." Bloody Brilliant. The contrast between the wussy herbal tea, and the swell of violence using the kettle is ever so delightful!
