Interesting start, leaves a lot of scope for things to happen.
Any chance of seeing more of this one?

Review of chapter "Long Hot Beautiful Summer" from Jewel
I'm thinking that its an interesting beginning, but at the same time confusing. For example: Spike studied at Hogwarts during the late 19th century; yet Dumbledore mentions that he 'resurfaced' half a century ago; and Spike recognises the Potters' names. Surely these things are contrary to the school years in the 19th century?

Review of chapter "Long Hot Beautiful Summer" from VillageOrchid
What am I thinking? Well, the style to your story is that of gentle delight. The reader really does get the sense of lack of tension, and playful relaxation. The bit about the pets of wizards is interested. Although so far, no feel for Buffy-verse angst and humor combo... and that could be a good thing or a bad thing, depending upon how you further develop the story. Although this is a future fic, it might start to seem too out of character if you do not touch on some of the past characterization stuff that got us to like these characters to begin with. I do like how you handily establish Spike's background and special ability without going into too much exposition. Thanks for sharing.

Review of chapter "Long Hot Beautiful Summer" from emilythestrange
This is a wonderful begining to what I think will be a superb fic. (Yay for big words! Yay!) Henley sounds like an awesome dog and I want one. I also liked the disagreement over that plastic thingie (Hold-er Open-er has a different meaning to me. That's a door stop if there ever was one), because I have those arguments constantly. ("Give me the thingy!" "What thingy?" "That one!" "That's not a thingy, that's a doo-dad!" and so forth.) Greatly enjoy the actual plausible reason for teaching at Hogwarts etc, although the 'Spike is a Malfoy' is becoming a bit of a cliche (one that I don't mind, because we never learn his last name in canon) and I'm so glad that Kennedy will be bashed upon. My favourite pic of Spike is in icon form at LJ and he's holding his head, wincing in pain, saying 'Shut... Up... Kennedy...' and it makes me smile. And my boss is coming, but still... great story, and I can't wait to read more. :)
