So as you may have noticed I haven't comment lately on any of the fanfiction we read. Mainly cause I've been busy with school. But never the last I had free time to read this one, so here is my short review/feelings about this fic.
I have conflicting emotions about this fanfic. I am happy the spike died (my hatred for him is eternal), and I glad that Buffy finally saw Giles as the one for her. Also giles and buffy telling the first off was amazing.But at the same time, they had sex when people were dying. I know that their not at fault here, they had no idea. I just felt really weirded out by the contrast of the hot sex scene and people fighting for their lives. Also I didn't like how the fic made it the fault of the first for the actions taken by the gang.
But at the same time, I liked how the fanfic addressed some of the issues of season seven-like the fact that no one asked about the mini-slayers lifes. And Xander telling off spike was good to (also everyone hating him, made my day not going to lie).
So yeah, I have confusing emotions, I may have to come to this fic and see if I like it or hate it. Til then, farewell and see you next fic.

Yay, glad you could join us again. :)

I personally like the concept that the First isn't just Season 7's big bad. That it has been influencing the Scoobies since at least the third season when they found the First at Christmas time when it was influencing Angel. It certainly helps explain the fissures in their relationships and the destructive behaviours each one engaged in. The First would want them weak when it was ready to strike.

Thanks for taking the time to write your review and that you enjoyed the fic, even if it made you go hmmmm in a couple places. See you next fic!
