Ok- stuff I love about this story and stuff I don't- Love Spike and Fred's ongoing chemistry. Love both of them exploring each other and new feelings, and their bond of trust. Not loving Buffy in this. She's very judgmental, and reacting in a "I hurt so I'm going to lash out and make you hurt too" kind of way. But I do love Angel defending his choices. Things are never black and white, and Buffy and the Council need to get that. I hated how in canon we get a one-way conversation with Giles that ends badly, with no help from them and implied assumption and judgment that Angel is now automatically evil because of joining Wolfram & Hart. Can't wait to see what you come up with next :-D!
Yay, thanks for continuing to read! Yep, Buffy's the judgiest judge in judge-town right now - I actually love the Buffy character but wow, she could get blinders on (see Faith, Riley, Anya, etc.) And I guess after you've been the one to save the world a few times, you kind of want to tell people to get it done themselves. Buffy has a journey to go through here and I think she comes out of it much differently than she started. We'll see ;)
I'm intrigued :-D....
