    People are just stalking the site whenever the hour turns eh?I'm a bit surprised I've never though about Spike's connections before. It seems like a rather interesting topic, I think I'm actually gonna give this story a shot.

    Great characterization. Provides a vignette into the life of an under-appreciated assistant. Have my stars!

    That was nice, a really good story about Spike is hard to find, but this was very well done.

    Well, this was pleasantly surprising! I typically don't like Spike, but this actually gave me more respect for him. I could definitely see this as being canon, and all of the characterization was well done. Bravo!
