    It’s definitely not the Twinkles fault, she had to take what season 12 gave her. But just reading the first chapter brought back all those gaping plot holes. A powerful sorcerer who is talking to a vamp in human form fully knowing that this human looking vamp is a vamp and not a human. But he doesn’t know vamps can assume human form. Huh? I had to stop reading.

      I stopped to. It was just to near the actual S12 and that was too depressing. I may be able to read it years down the road when S12 isn't so fresh in my mind.

        The Twinkles story is worth reading. It does put S12 in a completely different perspective by cleverly adding new details and removing none of the existing content.

          I only mentioned the S12 fic was something I was looking fwd to instead of this one, I wasn't saying anyone else should read it. I love Twinkles, plus I'd already accepted S12 (flaws and all) and could still see potential for positive in it and I like how Twinkles brings that out. To my mind, it's like DactylGirl's S10 comics fics which I also love. I haven't finished it but I have a feeling I'll love it.

          On the other hand I gave Ethnocentricism a try, but had to stop midway through chapter 2. I'm afraid I have similar feelings to Double Dutchess.

          Spoiler:
          I gave it a try, but I don't think I could make it through it. First, Buffy sounds utterly un-intelligent and very unlike herself in it. And I just can't get past the endless Buffy-blaming (and the text seems to be agreeing) alongside the selective valorisation of Spike (he wouldn't harm a fly, she was the monster, he was "right about her all along"? etc etc). It's just not my thing.

          And if it made her feel an enormous shame for past mistakes, it was as much an inherited shame—she was, after all, what she was, and meant to do what she was meant to do—as it was a personal one, to do with things she could have done differently, once, with one particular vampire who had been right about her all along.
          Supposedly soulless, and she couldn’t imagine him hurting a fly
          It was you who couldn’t feel; and you put that on him because you didn’t want to be the monster in that relationship./
          But she had been. She had been.

            I wouldn't say it's woobifying, mostly it's just that Buffy is thinking all the time about how wonderful Spike is. And it's not that I disagree with the sentiment (he really is) but it was getting a bit much for me.
