"Spike used to make love to her, when he thought she didnít notice." Such a beautiful and powerful line. It caught my heart.

Beautifully done. Almost like a poem, except more accessible than most poetry (I should mention that I don't ordinarily read poetry). Captures a lot of the important themes of the 6th and 7th seasons.

I think it works well by itself if you view it as a kind of poetic "word-photograph" -- not a "beginning-middle-end" kind of story, but simply an attempt to capture Buffy's frame of mind at one particular stage in her life (in other words, a sort of quick "photograph," but in words, of her emotional mood ... is this making any sense). But this could also work as the first part of a story ... if you were to do a sequel (or multiple sequels) you could show Buffy's mood slowly changing from piece to piece (hopefully toward something more positive!). Will you do any sequels to this piece? I would certainly read them if you wrote them! Any chance you could send me an email if you do that? I'm at ashettle @, thanks!

Is this complete, a ficlet? Or just the beginning of something amazing? Because either way, it's gorgeous.

Love it. Loved your Spike/Dawn fic, and love this one just as much. Quiet, introspective, but so powerful. Sheer brilliance. Can't wait to see your next fic.

Love the way you intertwine these different voices-- sort of like an uneven internal monologue that keeps surprising itself with upsurges of honesty it finds dangerous as soon as they appear. Bloody brilliant! :)
