Review of chapter "Chapter One" from RaeBear
just excellent! I wonder if Willow's spell worked because "God" decided it should work -- that's a twist! And if Cas kept an eye on Buffy, after all he's an Angel wouldn't he do that? The writing is really good! Thank you for writing this!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from beatleslove
This should NOT be a one-shot. I'm going to beg you to continue. In my opinion, there aren't enough Buffy/Castiel stories out there - and I don't even mean necesarily as a pairing. This could turn out to be so interesting. There's my begging. If it's all for naught - I enjoyed your story very much!

Unfortunately, this will be a oneshot, but I am, at the moment, trying to work Cas into my other SPN fic even though I'm only on season 1 right now (I want to get to writing Cas, dammit!). We'll see how that goes! :)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from PrincessAudrii
Really liked it... Just a single note of crit. Castiel's eyes are blue, not 'chocolate brown', unless he's in a different vessel than Jimmy Novak.
Comments from author:
Oh, of course he does! I totally knew that Misha had blue eyes! I don't know how I screwed that up.

I must have had Angel on the brain since I watched that scene from "I Will Remember You" like 4 times to get the setting right :)

Thanks for letting me know, and it's been edited!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Chris
I'm hoping you're going to make a part 2 for this. I can understand that a full out story might be to much to ask (please?)
but a part 2/3/4/5 would be nice ;)

cause it was brilliant!
Comments from author:
Hahahah why thank you. I don't really plan on continuing it, but there's always the possibility! I could always pretend that it's the prequel to my other SPN fic and she doesn't remember? :)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from purrfus
The lovely vision you've created for Buffy to share makes her despair and horror that much more. And so not fair - she gets sent back by angel and still ends up in the ground? It adds to the overall awfulness that is her life but it was just mean. Her chatter couldn't have bothered him that much, could it?
Comments from author:
Aw thanks, I'm glad you liked it! I know it was sort of mean for Cas to just drop her back in her coffin, but since I don't plan on continuing this, there are still a lot of open questions. Perhaps Willow actually did bring her back and Cas was just the messenger? Maybe Cas used Willow's spell to assist in her resurrection? Let your mind go wild :)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from feekh
If this is what you consider not fully fleshed out, I shudder to think of the alternative. In a good way of course.
Before I start the close analytical gushing, here is another thing to ponder. Seeing as I am working quite a lot I have turned somewhat into a lurker, who reads but rarely has time to review - or you know makes time to review. You have pulled me quite suddenly out of that happy oblivious little corner. Not sure if I should thank you or not.
So on with the specific gushing.
First of all you paint a very good picture of Buffy's personal heaven. An extremely good picture. I could see it and feel it in my mind's eye. Also a very good choice for a heaven, as everybody can relate to that, as they have experienced something similar at some point.
You write early Castiel perfectly, the stiff, unsure of his body angel that he is before Dean gets onto loosening him up a bit.
The interaction between the two of them and Buffy's hopeless despair at the thought of going back is brilliant. Also that she carries it with her to her grave. I am curious whether she has a hand print on her wrist that would not fade despite her slayer healing, just as Dean has one on his shoulder. Then again she was not ridden out of perdition like he was.

Room to ponder. Selfishly I hope that you continue this at some point, although it works quite well as a stand alone.
Phew, done.

Aw thank you! I'm glad you liked it!

I decided on the Santa Monica setting for Buffy's heaven because, to me, that's really the only moment in the Buffy/Angel timeline where she was actually happy and content. I struggled with a couple of other locations, but this one most like it would be part of her heaven.

I also struggled a bit with early!Cas cause I'm so used to adorable, humanized Cas, but I'm glad that you thought I did alright with it! He is just the cutest thing, even when he's being all business-y, and I think Buffy thought that, too!
