Promised by DoriansKitten

Reviews (15)Rating: NC-17

Summary: William knew that she considered him a friend or maybe even a big brother, but she'd promised to marry him once and he had every intention of holding her to it. Just as soon as he worked up the nerve to remind her, that is. Who says you can't find your soul-mate in preschool?

Author's Notes: Disclaimer: The characters from Buffy the Vampire Slayer are owned by Joss Whedon, Mutant Enemy, and Fox studios. This story is not meant to infringe upon anyone's rights, only to entertain. Man I hope it entertains and boy do I wish I owned Spike. I think I would do very well with him. *sigh*

Re: the X/other warning. There will be nothing graphic-mostly just some flashbacks to unhappy stuff. Please don't let it scare you off.

Reviews make my day!!!

This story is complete.

Chapter Notes: Thanks to OkDeanna for the beta-work! (Any mistakes are my own.)

Disclaimer: I don't own anything that Mutant Enemy and the like do (excepting perhaps an odd sense of humor). The story is mine though and I'm keeping it. :)

Please Review!!!

Chapter Notes: Okay-so I'm a little nervous about this one. I've tried to hint about some of this, so I don't think it should come as a big shock, but...let me know if you're still with me and if you still love my William. And YES, there is still some angst to come, but I'll intersperse it with smutty goodness if you are all good little kiddies and review :P

Chapter Notes: I know, I know I suck (and not in the sexy vampire way) at responding to reviews lately. It doesn't mean I don't treasure them. I really do. Please keep them coming. Thanks to everyone who has kept reading despite all my delays. I love this story and will finish it (baring death or a real life encounter with Spike-in which case I would be way too busy following him around offering to be eternally his to even remember my user name)

Chapter Notes: More is on it's way soon. I actually have writing time available due to the lovely Thanksgiving Holiday (my family did the big dinner last weekend). Thanks for reading and thanks even more to everyone who has made my day with a review. :)

Chapter Notes: Thanks to everyone who sent me their thoughts on the last chapter. I know we're heading into the hard stuff and I hope you all can stick with me until the end. Special thanks to DampersandSpoons for the beta-reading. She rocks. She might be my new bff, she'll have to come over for porn with the sound off (it's better if you write the dialog yourself) and cheap champagne.

Chapter Notes: Immense thanks goes to DampersnSpoons for all of her help. Clearly all mistakes and missed opportunities are my own. I know that this is a painful chapter and I'll admit right now that the next little bit will be tough. These two are perfect for each other, but that have made a total mess of it.
