Nice start. Good to see Xander grown up a bit and not bad at the blackmail either - lol. Look forward to the next chapter.

Aw thank you. I have ten chapters complete, so there shouldn't be much of a wait for the next one. I think there's a lot of Xander hate in Spuffy circles sometimes, but I like to think Xander did a lot of growing up especially in season 7 and I think losing Anya would have inspired even more character growth.

S7 Xander is my favorite Xander - I really enjoy his arc and his maturity after the events of late S6; I agree there's a lot of hate in Spuffy circles but I try to be fair to all the characters; the bashing of one side at the expense of the other doesn't feel quite right to me in part because it's antithetical to the spirit of the show.

Anyhoo - please do carry on. Post-NFA with Spike, Buffy, Xander AND Xander dealing with his grief over Anya (and thus his own hypocrisy re: Spike)? You're speaking my language.

I agree completely. Season 7 Xander is my favourite too. I try not to bash characters too as much as possible. Besides, I don't think there's any character that I hate, although Kennedy and Riley do come close.

Thanks so much for reading.

There are a lot of Xander bashers out there and he was kind of a jerk though he was a teenage boy growing up and he did show true growth in S7. I have read some lovely Xander fic, all of it slash with Spike where he has continued his growth from S7.

Have to admit not a huge Kennedy fan either and I don't think I have ever read a pro Kennedy story. Felt sorry for Riley. He was always going to miss out.

Xander getting the upper hand at Spike in conversation, wit and blackmail is very funny. :)

Oh, how the bleached have fallen. *g*

*giggles* Xander 1 Spike 0: It could be a sign of the apocalypse. lol

Thanks very much. :)
