Eighteen Days by Elen starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 62]
Chapter One--A Cautionary Tale of World Save-age. It isn't NC-17 yet, but I thought I'd better make it NC-17 to be on the safe side. All of the email addresses used for Willow, her friends and parents were made up for this story. Please don?t use them!

Once again, I'm blown away by the beauty that you infuse in seemingly simple moments. Although I'm always eager to get to the Willow/Spike moments, the interactions between the other characters are so well-done and complex that it forces me to slow down and enjoy those moments as well. I liked that Angel offered Giles an out, because he's right - Buffy will never forgive them if things go wrong and she does need to be able to trust Giles. I also thought that the reasoning behind not telling her the plan was brilliant; the fact that Spike would trust his enemy's reaction more than anyone else's is spot on. The Spike and Willow moments are more heartbreaking with every chapter. I love how you refused to give her the "easy out" of the Stockholm Syndrome and that you recognize that she's too smart to give herself that out. I'm enjoying the fact that you haven't allowed them to conveniently fall in love as well. It's definitely much more in character and more interesting from a narrative point-of-view to have this uneasy awareness from each of them of liking the other more than they should. I can't wait for the next chapter - even though it means that we are inevitably coming to the end. Not that I want you to slow down on Eighteen Days (or to be unbelievably greedy), but any chance that Odalisque will be updated soon? I really love that story, too.

Author's Response: Thank you! One of the things that is interesting about Spike and Willow is that they are so faithful to what they understand about themselves. Spike loves Drusilla. Willow loves Oz. I like it that they are struggling to fit what they are feeling about each other around that. As for Odalisque, Chapter 26 is in beta and I've got some revisions to make.

Wow - I've loved this story all along, but you actually made me cry this time. I can't believe how awful Angel is being to Willow! Keep up the good work.

Author's Response: awww... I'm sorry I made you cry. I forgot to put the "tissue warning" on this part. Angel is being a butthead, but despite the fact that he is a vampire, he is still a man. You know? ;) Thank you for reading and for letting me know that you think I'm doing a good job. I'll update soon. Smiles, Emmy

Wicked Is As Wicked Does by FemailoftheSpecies starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 2]
Spike did get captured by the Initiative, but escaped, just as angry, before they chipped him. You know what happened next! A/N - Dru who? Angel is Spike's Sire, dang it! Thanks to Jenni for being the best beta and for not making me feel really bad for not producing a By My Side or starting the sequel for Relentless. This story has to be told first, cuz it's blocking up me brain!

Wow - that was seriously hot. I think I need to go stick my head in the freezer for a few minutes - lol. Great story - I would love to see more; although I enjoyed it as a "one shot", too.

The authors own nothing. Joss, UPN, WB, etc. own Buffy, the show, the characters, the places, and the backstory. The authors own any original plots.
