I'm with Pam S, I still don't dislike Angel (never thought I'd say that, LOL). Sure he doesn't like to hang out with her friends, but he doesn't complain when she does, or seems to mind that she does. The lifestyle he's working hard to provide for Buffy isn't right for her, but she needs to be the one to realize that, and tell Angel.

I hope Angel isn't cheating or anything during all the time away. I'd like to see Buffy choose Spike not because Angel has done something bad, but she realizes Spike is the better guy for her.

Thanks for sharing!

I feel really bad for Buffy. It must be hard having the doubts about marrying Angel. But IMO, she wants something entirely different than the life she'd have with him. I suppose he's just a safety net even though she does love him. It's scary to just leave someone when they've been together for years, especially since they are also engaged. But heart wants what the heart wants and I hope Buffy will admit the truth to herself. What an awesome chapter!! :)

I still don't dislike Angel..
Buffy is a lucky girl-two men that love her. Each offering a different life style-her's to choose.. wisely.
Angel-if he isn't messing around makes no demands on her time with her friends. No negative comments. Working hard to make a good living for her. But the country club and wife of a fairly absent business oriented husband with the mother-in-law from hell might pose a big problem. A little straight laced from what we have learned.
Spike-more carefree, blends in with her friends nicely..has his own business and responsible homeowner.. takes care of crazy-x girlfriend and wayward puppies and Beautiful.
Most will probably not agree with me - but Buffy seems to do a lot of drinking with Spike..
Waiting to see what will determine her choice.

I love reading this story and am really looking forward to more. Want Buffy to wake up and smell the Spike but equally love the pacing and don't want it to rush. Hope that made sense!

Reviewer: BuffyRat Anonymous Date: 07/10/2011 - 10:28 pm Title: Chapter 12

Girl is impressively stubborn. So many little things hinting that maybe life with Angel isn't the best idea. And avoiding Spike seems to be putting her in a pretty questionable mood. Wonder when she'll figure it out, cause everyone else seems to know. :) Update soon!

OK - I get that this is one of those "angsty" stories - but I don't do angst well. It's a GREAT story, don't get me wrong, but my patience for it is gone. I just want to scream!

Buffy is an idiot. Can one woman really not know when she's actually in love with someone else?

Thank goodness for the line “But it’s worse if it’s someone you know, right? I mean–not a celebrity or a fake vampire.”

I think would have lost me mind if not for that little tidbit.

Please, please, keep writing, and I promise to try to be patient.

Hopefully Buffy comes to her senses before her wedding day! Can't wait for more!

Reviewer: Anonymous Anonymous Date: 07/10/2011 - 03:00 pm Title: Chapter 12

oh, buffy, this is really not a hard decision at all. angel is as dull as a table lamp, his mother is a judgmental bitch, she really doesn't want to marry into that family. spike makes her laugh and have fun, that should be all the answer she needs. i hope she doesn't come to her senses when she's already at the altar.

Reviewer: C Anonymous Date: 07/10/2011 - 01:35 pm Title: Chapter 12

Love it

Reviewer: Photographynut Signed Date: 07/09/2011 - 04:21 pm Title: Chapter 11

Someone ought to say something to Buffy about Spike being in love with her. Things are starting to get uncomfortable. Can't wait for more!

Reviewer: The Enemy of Reality Signed Date: 07/08/2011 - 06:36 pm Title: Chapter 11

Such a looong chapter. Yum. I like! ;) It was as awesome as always and I very much enjoyed the dialogues. I love the way you write because it reads like watching a movie. :) Love this!!

Reviewer: C Anonymous Date: 07/08/2011 - 01:47 am Title: Chapter 11

i really love your story, belive it or not, it's different from others, things are not coming out as usual, and i like that and u wirte it so good, i feel truly bad for Spike, he loves her and now he's getting to a breaking point, but did Buffy start catching on his feelings ? hehe
ok update soon

Reviewer: BuffyRat Anonymous Date: 07/07/2011 - 10:05 pm Title: Chapter 11

He's in love with her, and she doesn't know why he hasn't had a girl friend the entire time they've known each other. And everyone random person keeps thinking they have a thing. Hopefully the idea will cross her mind at some point. Not to mention the fact that even her sister thinks she needs to double check her plan to marry Angel. Something we all think she needs to double check. Poor sweet naive Buffy. She needs some one to give her the "you'll never be friends" speech. And really, I think she should be bothered by the fact that Angel isn't bothered by all the time she's spending with Spike. The guy that keeps her busy so she doesn't mind being ignore by her fiance. Gotta love the irony. Once of these days. Update soon!

I love this sotry, very refreshing.
Ohh, am I the 100th review.

Reviewer: Pam S Anonymous Date: 07/07/2011 - 08:48 pm Title: Chapter 11

It is difficult seeing Spike being the valient white knight and Buffy is so obtuse. Course we want her to wake up and face the fact that Spike is the one for her.
Hopefully, death is not the way Angel is left standing. Would be a pity party relationship IMO
And like many. Right now I do wish Spike would venture out for a while. Stop being Buffy's lost puppy..
Enjoyed the quick update.

Reviewer: The Enemy of Reality Signed Date: 07/06/2011 - 07:51 pm Title: Chapter 10

I feel really, REALLY bad for Spike. What's going to happen now??? I have a feeling someone's gonna get hurt either way. Loved the chapter!!!

Reviewer: Photographynut Signed Date: 07/06/2011 - 06:05 pm Title: Chapter 10

Since Buffy has been with Angel since High School I think she got too used to him and never really thought about her options. I think Buffy should have thought about the engagement for a bit! Can't wait for more!

Reviewer: demona424 Anonymous Date: 07/06/2011 - 01:59 am Title: Chapter 10

My heart was breaking for Spike in this story. That would be so hard. My heart breaks for Buffy too because she is missing out on so much because she's stuck in the past. What a fabulous idea for a tradition, and Angel misses out on participating and getting to know all her friends in a silly fun way. So I guess I feel sorry for Angel too. Can't wait for the next chapter!

Reviewer: BuffyRat Anonymous Date: 07/06/2011 - 01:51 am Title: Chapter 10

I love the reliving of the childhood sleepover. I totally did that with my bestest friends before the first one got married. General observation about those kinds of things... take the commemorative pictures the night before the morning after! And I love the nostalgia sex, maybe they will have a thing again. And Spike did a pretty good job handling Buffy's announcement. I love it! Update soon!

Reviewer: Anonymous Anonymous Date: 07/05/2011 - 11:59 pm Title: Chapter 10

Interesting how angel proposes after he meets spike, feeling a little threatened? the guy is never around, and it's obvious that she doesn't have as much fun with him. just because you're with someone for ten years, doesn't mean you have to marry them. i refuse to believe angel is so perfect, i think he has something to hide and i really hope buffy doesn't make it to the altar.

Your writing and characterizations are both amazing as always. Something about your stories makes them both engrossing and heartwarming at the same time.

This story is a bit of downer though (especially compared to the Best Man, which I loved) because it is not at all fun for me to watch Angel and Buffy stay together as long as this.

It's also definitely not fun to watch him take her for granted, and then see her just accepting it.

Spike's angst makes my heart go out to him, but at the same time I can't help wondering why he keeps pursuing women who are technically taken -- that's a little hard to respect.

Oh well, at least Angel is absent a lot; I wish Buffy would wake up and see that someone who spends so much time away, and who avoids her friends, can't really be in love with her.

Reviewer: Anna Anonymous Date: 07/05/2011 - 08:55 pm Title: Chapter 10

Cute. Great chapter. I'm curious on how Buffy and Spike are going to get together now that she's engaged to Angel. Can't wait for the next chapter!

Reviewer: Pam S Anonymous Date: 07/05/2011 - 08:15 pm Title: Chapter 10

Doesn't look good for the HomeTeam.. and many people that posted earlier thought the "question" was being popped at that special birthday dinner.
But... waiting for what creates the problem that makes Buffy break it off with Angel..

Reviewer: cordykitten Signed Date: 07/05/2011 - 06:02 pm Title: Chapter 9

Well this celebration went well even with Angel being there. Even better if he won't be there on next weekend, huh?

Reviewer: cordykitten Signed Date: 07/05/2011 - 05:53 pm Title: Chapter 8

That sure was fun, hanging out. And didn't Buffy give Angel the impression she was out with the girls, all the time, mmmmh?
