"Wesley was a horrified statue;" something about that turn of phrase absolutely kills me. I was laughing out loud and I'm still not entirely sure why. Loving this fic.

Author's Response: Thank you! And thanks for reviewing!

Reviewer: ScarlettDuck Signed Date: 04/20/2012 - 04:51 am Title: Epilogue

Lovely. This was beautifully written. The conversations were realistic, the characterization was spot on. Really, really well done. I've read published mass market books that were nowhere near this caliber -- I hope you are in or are pursuing a career in writing!

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed the story!

Reviewer: alya Anonymous Date: 11/16/2011 - 10:03 am Title: Epilogue

I'm ashamed to say that I have read this twice now without reviewing. Obviously, the reason I have read it twice is because I loved it. Just the perfect story, beautifully written and with all the right ingredients. I really hope you are still writing because it would be such a waste if you are not. xx

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed it! I have been writing fanfic, just not Buffy recently. But I keep meaning to do more Buffy.

I'm in love with this story! It's so well written and a great idea !!
BTW I know it's been ages but are you going to finish the sequel? Cause I'd love to read it after I finish reading this :D

Author's Response: Hi! Sorry for the late reply. I am going to finish the sequel. I feel awful that it's been hanging for so long! But I will finish it! :) I'm glad you like this story, and thanks for writing!

Reviewer: becca Anonymous Date: 10/07/2011 - 05:04 pm Title: Epilogue

Hey i loved it! I was just wondering if maybe spike had done with vampire claim on her than she would share his immortality and then they would have been able to be together forever cuz spike is indestructible i thought that would fit nicely into the prophecy you cooked up. But yea its probably the best fanfic I've read so far!

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm glad you liked it!

I have read a lot of stories and this one was the longest but it was also the best. You did an amazing job on it...I'm sad its over :(

Author's Response: Thank you so much!

Reviewer: SpikesGirl Signed Date: 08/12/2010 - 11:08 pm Title: Epilogue

This story was wonderful. I am so glad you finished it. It had me hooked from the get go. I am so happy that you won so many awards. You certainly deserved it. Awesome job. Keep writing. I am looking forward to the second interlude.

Author's Response: Thank you so much for the kind words! And thanks for reading!

Reviewer: SpikesGirl Signed Date: 08/10/2010 - 12:46 pm Title: 65 Evenings

Oh, that was so sweet. I love this story. WOW. No wonder you won so many awards. Congratulations. You deserve it.

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm glad you liked it!

Hey I really like this different spin on the Buffy Series. What i am waiting for is when Willow, Xander, and Giles meet Spike and find out his relationship with the Slayer. Keep up the good work.

Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you're enjoying!

Reviewer: Jenny Anonymous Date: 07/25/2010 - 12:25 am Title: Epilogue

Loved it! It was wonderful to just sit down and read this for hours. I love your version of Spuffy!

Author's Response: Thank you so much!

Reviewer: Anonymous Anonymous Date: 05/21/2010 - 02:59 am Title: Epilogue

wow! i just finished and i....you have such talent it boggles me. There are just too many things to say about this story...i mean, how wonderfully you captured Spike and the struggle he had adopting the human way...(ie-not killing) i mean...he really didn't always get why buffy reacted certain ways and you really communicated that so well. I felt it was really authentic, too, because too often you see fics where spike quickly becomes "good" and leaves his vampirism behind like it was easy. It wouldn't be, and you conveyed that expertly. Bravo. Really amazing.... your characterization was wonderful and your story kept me interested ... all 92 chapters!! Thanks so much for writing this and sharing it :)

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I really did want Spike to struggle with changing. Because I don't think it's as easy as loving Buffy and automatically seeing other humans as people as well, or loving her and doing whatever she wants just like that. It's more than just changing what he eats, it's changing everything he is. Spike really doesn't get why Buffy reacts the way she does sometimes, and as a vampire, I don't think he sees killing as wrong (but does it anyway), I think he sees killing for food as just how things are. I'm glad you enjoyed the story, and thanks for reviewing!

This was fantastic! :D Normally I don't have the patience to read something this lengthy in such a short time, but I finished this in under two days. You did an excellent job with the plot and character development, and the relationship between Buffy and Spike was very realistic. It didn't become romanticized as it does in so many Spuffy fics. He wasn't a harmless puppy and she didn't just turn a blind eye to his nature. It created interesting and authentic conflict in their relationship. I greatly enjoyed reading this. Well done. :)

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm flattered I wrote a 'page turner.' :) And I'm glad you liked it so much!

Reviewer: demona424 Anonymous Date: 10/03/2009 - 01:27 am Title: Epilogue

Finally reached the end of the story or rather, sadly I have reached the end of this story. I'm just going to have to read it all over again. It was such a fabulous, rich, and great story. Your character interpretations were so well done I'm just bummed I that it's all over. I really did love this story. Hope you continue writing stories!

Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you liked it so much! It was a lot of fun to write, and I'm glad readers enjoyed it just as much. I do intend to keep writing, but I don't think I'll tackle anything this epic for a while, LOL.

Reviewer: Sotia Anonymous Date: 10/02/2009 - 02:23 am Title: Epilogue

Oh, God, I'm so ashamed of myself! I read this days ago, at work, and didn't review. Bad!Sotia!!

This was a perfect conclusion to a brilliant story. Thank you for the entire ride, it has been breathtaking.

I already miss that email in my inbox that says Sideways is updated.:(


Author's Response: Aw, you'll never be bad! :) I'm glad youl liked the ending! Thank you so much!

Reviewer: Raychelle Anonymous Date: 09/25/2009 - 08:47 am Title: Epilogue

This story was excellent from the beginning to the satisfying conclusion. Thank you.
I just love a story that keeps me up late at night despite knowing I have to get up very early in the morning.

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm glad you liked it so much! And hearing that it kept you up is the best compliment I can get, LOL.

Reviewer: PhotographyNut Anonymous Date: 09/15/2009 - 07:31 pm Title: Epilogue

Author's Response: Thank you so much!

Reviewer: immortalangel08 Signed Date: 09/15/2009 - 06:42 pm Title: Epilogue

Long time reader of the story, first time reviewer. I really enjoyed this story. I think it is great Buffy and Spike ended up living together. Can't wait to see what you come up with next!

Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it! And thank you for reviewing!

Reviewer: sue Anonymous Date: 09/15/2009 - 11:35 am Title: Epilogue

Absolutely excellent, from beg. to end. All 92 chapters, you took us right through the makings of a Slayer and a relationship against all odds. And it worked. Very well done.

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm glad you liked it!

Reviewer: cordykitten Signed Date: 09/15/2009 - 08:24 am Title: Epilogue

*sniff* Last chapter now.
Ah didn't think of the Treasure. So that's Spike's 'legal' money. It's indeed better to keep the Gem a secret. Not with Buffy's friends but other demons could go after Spike, hoping to gain it.
So what if she had to slay for the rest of her life? It would be a long one, and she wouldn't be alone. Having a partner like Spike will make things better for Buffy. Even (or especially) the slaying.
Sad to see it end (I'll miss it) but I enjoyed the read a lot. Thank you.

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed the story! Having a partner like Spike is really the right thing for Buffy, I think. He understands the Slayer part of her, and he can be involved in everything in her life.

Reviewer: Sibb Anonymous Date: 09/14/2009 - 04:12 pm Title: Epilogue

A lovely ending to a wonderful fic! Thank you :-)

Author's Response: Thank you!

Reviewer: Brunettepet Anonymous Date: 09/14/2009 - 01:09 pm Title: Epilogue

Spike taking Buffy to see the treasure was light hearted and fun. I coud totally hear Buffy being creeped out by the small, dark entrance, and it's hilarious where she'll draw the line some times. Spike being rich and still wanting to work makes sense. he's got decades in front of him, sitting around would get boring. It got Buffy thinking about the future, too. I really enjoyed this window into a happy domestic routine that I can see stretching on for years to come.

This gave me a laugh: The one thing Spike had put his foot down about was the glass kitchen table she liked; he said that they couldn’t have sex on it. After considering his point, Buffy started looking at other tables. Ver y pragmatic, Spike! Also, I was grinning at his lack of interest in the furniture shopping. I'm pretty sure that's just a guy thing, not a vampire thing.

Thanks for wrapping up this well written, emotional journey. Your attention to detail made for a vivid, entertaining read. This was a real pleasure and I enjoyed each and every twist and turn.

Author's Response: Buffy may be the Slayer, but she still has to have some fears, LOL. Crawling into small caves might be one of them. And I'm sure lack of interest in furniture is totally a guy thing and not a vampire thing. :) Spike has a point about the kitchen table, though. I wanted to end on a domestic note, and have the very last scene be just that, since most of their relationship has been about can they have a life together. I'm glad you liked it, and thanks for reviewing!

Reviewer: Brunettepet Anonymous Date: 09/14/2009 - 12:57 pm Title: 91 Circles

It's lovely to read these two in such a good place. They both feel centered and their eyes are wide open. Buffy recounting her life to Cordelia really put it in perspective. Other than the slaying and the saving the world and the vampire boyfriend, she's got it good. Spike is just the guy for her, and it's nice that she knows it.

I enjoyed meeting up with Wes and Fred again, and Buffy's succinct Bridge with the water and whatever. So. You and Fred wanna go for coffee? gave me a laugh. She's right, if she can forgive Giles, it's only fair she forgive Wes.

Spike may be leading Buffy into deeper water, but he'll be there with her. Nice work.

Author's Response: Thank you! Yes, Buffy and Spike have reached an understanding and agreement with each other. And I'm glad you liked the parts in LA! I wanted to revisit that once, and see Cordelia and Wesley again, since that's where the story started. Thank you so much for reviewing!

Reviewer: albie Anonymous Date: 09/14/2009 - 10:07 am Title: Epilogue

I can't believe that this is over. It's been a story that I always looked forward to being updated and it's weird to think it's come to an end. This has been a fabulously involving story and what you've done with Buffy and Spike has been so very enjoyable You explored gray areas in ways taht didn't drift into melodrama, where it could easily have. Your editorial hand always stopped the scene, grabbed for the good stuff, without it becoming too much. I've loved this exploration and I also love that this doesn't end on easy answers or perfection. It ends on understanding, it ends on genuine love, it ends on an involved and special relationship that you have created and I hope you're proud.

And now.... I get to read it all again!

I do hope you'll share some more of your writing with us again. Til then, your audience will be waiting patiently (well, kinda ;) )>

Author's Response: Thank you so much! It feels weird to me too that it's come to an end. I was just writing it for so long that it feels odd that I don't have another chapter to complete. I'm glad you liked the way I handled Buffy and Spike's relationship! I did want to have them talk about gray areas, but I tried not to be too heavy handed about it. They see things differently, and that's always going to be a conflict. But they love each other enough to work through it, even if it isn't always easy. I am working on writing some other things. And there are a few things up on my livejournal that won't be posted here. Thanks for reviewing!
