Review of chapter "Chapter One" from PrincessTai
Review:
I don't typically read songfics because they can get much with the Bad Version of A Titantic Musical, or some such, even the funny ones but I am glad I read this one. Made me snort with laughter. HAHA! LOL, I love Angel but shite that would have been ONE funny scene. I could just imagine his face. Serves him right :-D

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from MavenAlysse
Review:
OMG!! Funny!! Okay, so I'd read this story about a week ago and thought - neat story, lyrics are good. I like. Then, the next morning on my way to work, I hear the song for the first time and just started laughing my head off!
It was a really neat mental image. Good job!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from SilverGreeneye
Review:
"Before He Cheats" is one of my favorite songs right now. It's that vicious revenge that every betrayed ex wishes they could take without getting arrested. Somehow, I find it very easy to imagine events playing out just the way you have written them. I would enjoy seeing more of this, maybe either the events leading up to or resulting from Xander's very public declaration, but it works quite nicely as a one-shot as well. You have, once again, crafted a very entertaining fic.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Dreamweaver
Review:
Ummmmm....just the slightest bit AUish and would've made a bit more of a logical progression to have treated most of it as flashbacks, but still....

Woooo-hooooo!!!! Go LL! Go LL! Go LL! Go LL! EX-CELLENT!!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from littleoldme
Review:
Love the song, but didn't really care for the fic. Xander seemed completely out of character. He's not exactly a showy with his emotions kind of guy, and he's far more "little bit country, little bit rock n roll" than he is full-on country. You did little to nothing to explain the Xander/Angel pairing when both characters are canonically straight, and I find it hard to believe that Angel and Buffy went through their actions fast enough to match the song. I mean, they would have had to spend three seconds dancing and then high tail it to the pool table in record time, even for a vamp and a slayer. I also have trouble imagining Spike considering Buffy the "tramp" who broke up Xander and Angel- you seem to acknowledge in the fic that it's unlikely that Spike, who was head over heels for Buffy, would look at the two of them and rather than feel jealous on his own behalf, feel outraged on Xander's, when Spike and Xander have never gotten along. And Xander dressed from head to toe in black leather? Unless we're talking Wishverse Xander, there's just no way.

I get that this fic is just a funny little bit of something that probably isn't supposed to make all that much sense, but with these characterizations, you may as well have written it as an original fiction. There's no nuance to the characters- how exactly is Xander so filled with rage when he KNOWS the background between Buffy and Angel? He got a front seat look at them the first time around, and he saw what being together and apart did to the two of them. It taxes belief that Xander would get in the middle of that, if only from loyalty to Buff, and if he did, then he must have largely suspected that it would come back to this, in which case I can't see him referring to Buffy as a tramp either. Then there's the fact that Xander cheated on Cordy with Willow, and that we didn't see this kind of outraged display when Anya hooked up with Spike. This entire fic is completely out of character for everyone involved. Spike or Anya would have made better choices in terms of the song working with their characters, and I can even see an angry Fred pulling it off, but this is just so ridiculous it's blatantly disrespectful to the canon.

That said, at least you write well, if not in character.
