Review of chapter "Jesse, Doc, Gavin, Knox" from Zarohk
This is great writing, and very touching, funny, and horrifying in all the right places. Mind if I do a version of the "11. Principal Flutie" part? It's something I've been stirring on (Faith having a better educational background) and Principle Flutie would fit in well.

please feel free to write a story about Faith and Principal Flutie. Thank you for your review

Review of chapter "Jesse, Doc, Gavin, Knox" from Zarohk
Principal Flutie
He apparently didn't do his research. If he had, he would have known that Brookline (which is actually a separate town, despite being surrounded by parts of Boston) would be the step up. It's actually really sad, because he got so close, only a few miles from some of the best schools in the country, but ended up administrating on the wrong side of the Brookline/Boston line.

Review of chapter "Jesse, Doc, Gavin, Knox" from (Current Donor)Listener
Clever and amusing. The thought of Buffy and Gunn married was a little weird, though.

Review of chapter "Jesse, Doc, Gavin, Knox" from TNH
These are lovely. The Mayor Wilkins/Faith segment has just the right chirpily deranged tone, and the Darla/Angelus segment made me laugh out loud. I was sorry you took back the "miserable adultery, death, miscarriage, and suicide" storyline, though the brazenness of the "it was all a dream; and by the way, he took another plane" retcon did a lot to redeem the smiley version. Thank you!

Review of chapter "Jesse, Doc, Gavin, Knox" from (Current Donor)DeepBlueJoy
what about Tara... I thought you said you were getting to her... that would be truly twisted... heheheheh... while you're at it please bring Snape back from the dead... since you referred to Boston Public and HP already, it seems like you could do that.
Comments from author:
I was getting to Tara, and oh yes I forgot about Snape.

Review of chapter "Jesse, Doc, Gavin, Knox" from spike

Review of chapter "Principal Flutie" from (Recent Donor)DaveTurner
I know I've read this before but...

Very funny

All the best,
Comments from author:
Yes I'm waiting to be in the exact right mood to pen the last chapter what would happen if Tara lived. Because it would not be pretty.

Review of chapter "Jesse, Doc, Gavin, Knox" from CPTSkip
Lol! If I was Harmony, yet-another-vampire-with-a-soul, I think I'd stake a certain broding yet-another-vampire-with-a-soul for being such a putz. I think it is the Texas accent along with the whole "looks innocent but is really an ancient evil god-king" vibe Illyria gives off. Lol!

PS It might be a "guy thing" because I thought she looked hot, in a strange, creepy way of course.
Comments from author:
Thank you for the review. Harmony might stake you know who. Just because you have a soul doesn't make you good.

Illyria looked really creepy I thought. Like an evil skinny smurf.

Review of chapter "Jesse, Doc, Gavin, Knox" from Cutiepie
Every male in the building falls for Fred/Illyria? Even Olaf?? Now I'm wondering what sort of spell Fred had on her that didn't dissipate with her death. Cause you KNOW it wasn't Illyria that did anything, nor had anything of the sort done to her. Maybe it's attached to the flesh itself? It would explain Gunn going after Fred in the first place (on the show). I always thought that they were impossibly mis-matched. Giggled myself dizzy over this entry to the madness. =]
Comments from author:
Thank you very much for your review.

Good theory of yours. A spell on Fred is the only thing that accounts for the football team around her death bed. When people stopped visiting Cordy in hospital.

I thought Gunn and Fred the perfect couple. I've been thinking about Fred, and changed my mind about her recently. I thought she was a twit at first, that prevented Wesley not appreciating Lilah properly and then in S5 track down Faith (I'm a completely obsessed Faith/Wes shipper, as you know). Actually Fred is a heroine. God knows what she went through on Pylea and she survived it.

Gunn let Fred down not trusting her. Not letting her kill the professor herself. Patronising idiot. Who knows who or what Fred killed on Pylea to escape in the first place and keep free?

Review of chapter "Harmony" from stonewar
ahh that sweet. He appreciates her blondness.
Comments from author:
Thank you, Yes he does and he'd like a human Harmony a hell of lot more than Buffy.

Review of chapter "Fred part 3" from Cutiepie
And you managed to pull it out of the latrine for me. Still don't see the dark humor, but that's just me. A melancholy tale turned sweet at the end, with some horrid images in the middle. I can do that. I didn't plan to read this, considering I didn't like the previous one (the first part was fine), but I decided to give it a chance since you mentioned that there would "somehow be a happily ever after" with it.

Now, if you had wanted "black humor" that I would have gotten, the dogs would have turned out to be some sort of demons and they would have taken down all four (Fred, Lorne, Faith and Wes) and explained to Wes as he was dying that they did it for his own good. They just couldn't stand the idiocy of the supposed "higher" species for another minute. And maybe they (the dogs) would have wound up raising the two children themselves, and done a better job of it. Yes, I'm weird.
Comments from author:
I can't believe you read it. I carefully put in the warning with you in mind. But as you see they all lived happily ever after.

The dogs turning talking killers isn't black humour, it's Dali imitative surrealism. Yes, you indeed must be bloody weird. ;)

Thank you as always for your very kind review. And a polite thank you for two previous reviews, that in my "me,me,me" like state I forget to add. How rude! (of me)

Review of chapter "Fred part 3" from CPTSkip
Well, it wasn't my favorite of your stories, but you did pull a sort of good ending out after all. I'm afraid I just found this series too sad to be very funny. But I have faith! Well, not the Slayer, but I have faith in you. So write more funny stuff. I dare you! Lol!
Comments from author:
The next one I promise will aim for mainstream chuckles.

"pull a sort of good ending out after all." the last line of the turgid supernatural soap opera was why I wanted to make this story the very last one. But I still have at least five more resurrections to cover.

Thank you very much for the review.

Review of chapter "Principal Flutie" from Cutiepie
Yeah, yeah, yeah! That made me laugh so hard! Brilliant, and the name Halfrek Flutie is making me giggle even as I type. I was expecting someone from Boston Public or something. I never even considered that "Mrs. Flutie" might be Buffy (although I maybe should have, but she was a student, a sophomore when Flutie met her and . . . eeeewwww?) but I also didn't expect Halfrek. Simply amazing that D'Hoffryn let her get married. Maybe because she then has the permanent job as the school counselor, with its steady stream of 'business'?

I'm thinking that Flutie gets a lot of flak being a white principal in that particular school, huh? Poor guy. Of course, almost anyone would be better than what that show pictured. They were SO out of touch with reality. It made me think of "Dangerous Minds" meets "Fame" or something. I found it to be even *less* real than "reality tv," if you can believe that is possible. =]

So, does he even know that Hallie is a "justice demon"? I have this vision in my mind that Hallie decided to get married because of Anya's wedding (either just the idea of it or if the actual event happened, however you want it to have gone in this case). I can't wait to see who is "better off dead" next! =D
Comments from author:
Thank you for reviewing. I think Flutie is so oblivious he doesn't realise Hallie is a 'justice' demon.

Boston Public ( working occasionally as an actual High School teacher, admittedly not in the American School System, actually Buffy teachers struck me as being more realistic than the BP ones) made me shudder at the crap it was. You don't control kids like the way they showed. Ronnie the lawyer would have been driven out in tears in her first day.

Review of chapter "Principal Flutie" from CPTSkip
Lol! Well, you made me laugh out loud again. Actually, I hope Mr. Flutie and Hallie have a good marriage, I mean other than her whole "justice demon" gig of course.
Comments from author:
I made you lol, Great! I hoped people would get the XO jokes. I presume Halfrek and Rob would be happy. After all, he would be continually trying to boost her self esteem.
