Yay! Really loving this one!

Yay part 2! I'm still really enjoying this story and love how it's all slowly unfolding.

Can't wait for part 3. :D

Yay, really glad you're enjoying it! :-)

This is so much fun! I think I saw Chapter One on an archive, and I wasn't sure how slowly the charade was going to crack, but this is so action-packed I can't want for the next bit. :D

I'm so glad you like it!

Enjoying every word of this, and looking forward to more.

This is fabulous. Friending you so I can keep up - hope that's OK?

I love their reactions as they begin to find out the truth - especially Buffy as she begins to work out she has superpowers.

Friending is absolutely fine. I'm so glad you're enjoying the story!

> I love their reactions as they begin to find out the truth

Happy to hear it! :-)

Hand up on the friending too.

Gotta find out where Willow is. Pleeaasse tell me she's snoozing at the local Holiday Inn???

Hm, Willow, yes. I expect we'll find out where she is sooner or later....

*wanders away, whistling innocently*

Oh yay! Love the way you slipped in the hints about Angel and Spike's past, and that Buffy has her own suspicions. LOL

"You don't get to come in here and hurt my friends," Xander said, planting himself between Angel and Spike

Yup, something really weird is going on!! I'm enjoying this very much!

Yes, yes indeed. (Poor Angel.)

This is a spiffy story. I really like how Angel showed up and blew up all their expectations, but my favorite thing in this chapter is probably your Buffy voice.

"Um," Buffy said, "Feminism yay and all, but Xander weighs like eighty pounds more than me and he's a construction worker."


Hee!

Buffy tried to think of a gentle way to explain everything, and failed. "Yes," she said finally. "It turns out he's a vampire and I'm a superhero and we all have to go hide at Anya and Xander's place so that Drusilla, who is also a vampire, doesn't murder us."

"Ah." Spike squinted up at her. "You are having me on, yeah?"

Buffy shook her head. "Nope."

After a few seconds, Spike seemed to realize she was serious. "Bloody hell," he said again, with feeling.


I suspect that Spike still has his vamp strength, maybe? That would explain why Buffy wouldn't think she was particularly strong; a purely human partner would have plenty of chances to notice her super strength, right? Even if it just involved jar opening.

"Don't hurt them," Spike begged him, his voice catching. "Do whatever you want to me, just don't hurt them."


Aww, poor sweet human Spike. *pets him*

So glad you're enjoying it!

That would explain why Buffy wouldn't think she was particularly strong; a purely human partner would have plenty of chances to notice her super strength, right? Even if it just involved jar opening.

Well, as to that, remember in chapter 1 how Buffy easily unstuck the box of patties in the freezer when Percy couldn't? She rationalized it away as just a trick in the way she twisted it; she may be making a lot of rationalizations like that (and it's never occurred to her to test her strength; why would it?).

I did notice that; I just wondered if having a super-strong partner made it easier to not notice the strength. But I'd believe it either way. :)

Wondering about the scarring in Spike's brain, too; whether it's chip-related, or about his demon that isn't there, or if somehow messing with a hundred plus years of memories (almost all of which would have to be radically changed or erased) somehow left a mark where tweaking 6 years wouldn't...

Hmmm, yes, one wonders, doesn't one?

**resists urge to say anything else**

Four more chapters to go! :-)

(Thanks for making this delightfully fun for me by sharing your speculations!)

Trying to catch up - and this is of course wonderful! Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful.

Sorry for inadequate f/b.

No worries about quality of feedback; I'm just excited to know that you're reading and enjoying it!

Nummy fic! Calling in Angel did seem like a supremely unfortunate choice, but it's cool that he's the voice of Sunnydale past, as it were. At least somebody remembers things the way we do. Though I'll bet Willow knows what's going on, sure as shooting. (See what I did there?)

I'm all flustered by kitteny!Human!Spike. Vegan! Seizures! Headaches! Bad dreams! Oh, let me help you with those...
