Review of chapter "Courting Disaster" from MarcusSLazarus
An interesting and abrupt start led into an excellent story; nice job.
The idea of Max being created ‘early’ didn’t seem that much of a stretch- in a world with the likes of vampires and shapeshifters in existence, it’s possible that Manticore synthesised some supernatural DNA to accelerate their research-, and subsequent developments as you explored her gradual but intriguing bond with the Winchesters were definitely handled well, her initial fear being replace by cautious acceptance of the Winchesters and vice versa, with each group taking a while to reveal their own secrets even as they gradually become aware that the other is more than a normal person even before Max’s explosive confrontation with the Winchesters’ world.
Subsequent events as the four explored their new family dynamic were also exceptionally explored, ranging from Sam’s ambiguity over her intellect to their acceptance of Max’s seizure-related issues- even if she’s still initially reluctant to reveal her real origins to them-, and you certainly put an interesting amount of thought into Max’s issues regarding her heat cycle, particularly in regards to her relationship with Dean (I have a feeling that things are going to be REALLY difficult when Alec and/or Ben shows up, with Dean in the picture already).
Dean-wise, I’m so-so on the idea of the new direction of their relationship- it’s not BAD, but I just think it would be more interesting to see Dean in a relationship with a woman where sex wasn’t a factor in their interaction, even if you clearly put some thought into the relationship-, but at least she still has John and Sam unquestionably regarding her as their daughter/sister despite the lack of a biological connection, even if they haven’t maintained regular contact.
Hope you’re going to continue this story soon; apart from anything else, I’m looking forward to seeing what happens when Max learns that one of her BIOLOGICAL siblings is a dead ringer for her adopted one, to say nothing of what might happen if/when Max gets involved in others’ long-term plans for the Winchesters…

Review of chapter "Courting Disaster" from stargirl
Just found this crossover the other day. I don't normally read Dark Angel/Supernatural crossovers cos they always link Dean and Alec/Ben, but I loved the direction this story took.
The way that both have been linked and yet still keep their own various stoylines has worked so well.
I can't wait for to see if Sam and Dean will actually meet Logan and Dean and Max actually coming face to face again . . . please update soon as the suspense is killing me!

Review of chapter "Courting Disaster" from Ghostrider
So glad to see more of this. Things are heating up now, aren't they? This is the time period that Max 'died' and was stuck back in Manticore. I wonder if Logan has the stones to actually call the boys and tell them about it. If he thinks Max is badass because she's an X5, he's gonna be surprised when he finds out how scary her brothers are. Not to mention her dad.
I'm sitting on the edge of my seat her, so please update it at your earliest convenience.

Review of chapter "Darker Games" from Xayian
Rhyming Review Day!
As per usual
You continue to spin a great tale
Love seeming unrequited
The lingering of which never to fail
I hope it comes soon
This plan Sam has unhatched
To bring these two together
Two who are a perfect match
So go forth and spin, young writer!
Spin us a merry tale!
One where two hearts meet,
Love free from an unwanted jail!

Review of chapter "A Close Call With Death" from Ghostrider
Really happy to see more of this. If you stay true to DA, very soon, Max will be shot. I wonder what will happen then? Will she meet Alec? Will he be a twin to Dean, adding another complication? Will Logan call in Sam and Dean, provided they're not busy with their Dad and the YED? Of course, there's still Sam's death and Dean's deal with the Crossroads demon to consider. How will that affect Max, once she finds out from Sam what Dean's done? Not to mention the whole 'gone to Hell and pulled out by and Angel Of The Lord' deal that will follow that. You've got your work cut out for you here and I'm happily sitting along for the ride.

Review of chapter "Close Enough To Touch" from Xayian
Even after all this time this story has really stuck with me. It's like a soap, ya keep waiting for the slightest interaction between the starcrossed should be lovers but there's always something in the way.
Thank God for Sam. :o)

Review of chapter "Close Enough To Touch" from Ghostrider
Unbelievable! I remember reading this story on Nuns With Pens, years ago. It's just as good as it was the first time I read it. I'm glad to see you've added a new chapter and hope that we'll be seeing more soon. Any hints as to how long the separation of Dean and Max is going to be? Are we talking up to the end of season two of DA? Or up till the current season of SPN? After all, you've gotten a lot more SPN material now, including Dean's death and subsequent time in Hell.
Please, don't leave us waiting so long this time?

Review of chapter "Close Enough To Touch" from Arekanderu
A great chapter!! However I am kinda confused a bit. I remember this one from long ago but wasn't there the exact same fic set in this universe but with Max and Sam as a pairing? What happened to it? Did it exist? Or was my imagination?
Comments from author:
Yes, there is a fiction that took place like that. I had a series of What If additions that were not actually in the main story line. The one you are thinking of is entitled Racing Towards Destiny. The "What If" story is not posted on TtH because of the restrictions at the time I was posting on non BtVS based crossovers. The story is around the 'net at various places and everything I write is posted on my personal yahoo group.

Review of chapter "Into That Good Night" from banner
I just reread this story from the beginning, and I still love it. It's exciting and heart wrenching and so intense. Thank you for showing John as the complex character he is, and for showing everyone as humanly fallible and humanly wonderful.
I hope your muse leads you back here.

Review of chapter "Into That Good Night" from amelockheart
I am so in love with this story and slightly devastated that it was never continued! Aw, well, I loved what is here and if you ever write more, I'd love you for that too! It kinda killed me that Jess died and all that lead up to it, even though I knew it was coming... I was kinda hoping that there was going to be more of a clue of the X5s leading up to it, but the suspense was slightly terrible in an awesome way. .... if that makes sense...
