Yeah, I could see this. Yeah.N
Glad you thought it worked!
I really like this AU. The sadness of it and the thin threads of hope woven through the grey. Excellent!Gabrielle
Thank you, I'm really glad you like it. :)
They are making the best of a bad situation. Poor orphaned Dawn is keeping it together and moving forward while still honoring her past. Spike, though, just seems to be existing. Stupid vampire! You have your whole unlife ahead of you. Do what you do best and throw yourself into the fray!Very atmospheric and well done.
Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed it. :) Spike does need to pull himself together and get back into the fray, yes.
That felt too real, and now I'm sad. And I will probably think about this story for a while. I imagine Dawn will eventually move on with her life, but always come back to Spike now and then. Very well done! Thank you. :-)
Thank you, I'm glad you thought it was well done. :)
That was sad. Beautifully written, though, and felt very real.
I'm glad you liked the writing. Thank you for your feedback. :)
I enjoyed this.You captured the sadness and the sexiness of the moment quite well.
