Fantastic story! I really enjoyed this one. The Angel/Willow and Spike/Buffy was perfect. I love those pairings and it was so very believable. Love the "no labels thing" and the whole drama with Dawn and Oz just showing up. Really excellent work. What a perfect thing to bribe myself with for finishing up work on the book for the evening!
Author's Response: Thank you! This was my first time writing a functional Spike/Buffy relationship. It seemed to me that this was a time and place where both couples could crawl out of their frailties and their damage and connect in healthy ways and I really liked showing that here, as well as repairing the friendships that had fallen by the wayside. Best of luck with your book!

" At the moment, anything that didn’t hurt sounded like a fine idea."
That's kind of a unifying theme here. :) I do like this, though. Especially the brief Giles moments.
Author's Response: Thank you! I do think that finding solace and an end to all the angst and trauma they've all endured is indeed a theme here.

It's nice to see Buffy truly recovering from Sunnydale - and the Xander and Willow sub-plot was well done. I hope he'll be back later, but I won't cry if he isn't. That's cause you wrote it so well, lol.
Author's Response: I am delighted you like the way I handled Willow and Xander here. I wanted to give them a little bit of closure for all the complicated feelings they have always had for each other.

You know, I really didn't enjoy the last half of S5 of Angel, and NFA just....irritated me. But this story is soothing that sore, if you know what I mean. It's nice to see Spike and Buffy talking, and Angel finally giving up the cookies.
Author's Response: I am delighted that this story is taking away some of the canon-pain for you.
