Oh, oh, oh! That made me want to cry. Poor Spike. Poor, poor Spike.

Just one thing:

So they - all of them, unified, feeling less like broken gym shoes and more like ***

Looks like you never filled in that simile. I've totally done that before.

And, uh, I'm glad the fic managed to hit you where it hurt. That was kind of the idea. :)

Oh, you definitely succeeded in what you were trying to accomplish. Nightmarish!

Wow. I think this is a first. Well done, even if it did make my cringe for Spike (and Buffy).

Thank you! Cringing was sort of what I was hoping for. (Sorry!)

How was it a first?

It is, as your stories so often are, very original. It's not a plot line I've ever seen before - and I've read a lot of fic. I could be wrong - I don't read Bangel if I can avoid it, so something similar could have happened there, but it's the first time I've seen anything like this and it was handled beautifully. Believable and spot on voices for everyone. It isn't easy to come up with an approach or a story line that someone hasn't done at one time or another.

Wow, thank you! To be honest, I can take very little credit for the premise, since it mostly came from the prompt. It makes a lot of sense to me, though. Vamps are just animated corpses, right? So if the corpsey magic that's holding them together wears thin...

But I'm thrilled to hear my execution worked for you. :)
