Oh I miss Morr. Her and I were in the middle of a B/G collab ... where we kept writing each other into corners when I wandered off to Japan for a year.

I'm gonna hit her up and tell her about this:D

So I finally got around to reading this. Ah life, why must you get between me and my gikesbuffy? Well what can I say about this fanfic?
I recommend it because I had read half of it, and truly enjoyed that half. Now I finally read the whole thing, and I really liked it. I like how the fanfic handled the gilesbuffy relationship. I liked the hints of angel/wesley as well. The only things I didn't really like in fanfic, was the scenes where Giles was tortured. Though that was because the idea of my baby being hurt in such a way, makes me hurt. Oh my poor giles, this fanfic is not kind to you at all. I also don't like how Buffy comes off sometimes. Though to be fair to the fanfic, it takes place in season six. So it makes sense that buffy is acting this way. Because in season six, buffy acting in ways that I was just annoyed by. Like how in the fanfic, she tells giles to stay, without thinking about his feelings. I like how Willow does call her out at this.
The ending, also weirded me out. Because it doesn't really end. The end has giles take in this darkness, but gives us no concrete answer on what that darkness will do to me. I just want to know.
So yeah, I liked this fanfic. And I'm glad I recommend it. Its well written, and has a great monster. So I give it two thumbs up.

I'm glad you liked this fic. Can't say it was one of my favorites. I felt that Buffy was extremely out of character and her actions were extremely alien and hurtful. I understand it's season 6, but I don't think she'd force the issue on Giles seeing how miserable he is, nor would she so thoroughly disregard his feelings. She can be flippant about things, but not overtly hurtful. It's hard for me to get into a fic when I can't identify the character as the character on screen (in this case Buffy). I thought the monster was great. I don't know. It just didn't work for me.

But thanks for the rec! :)
