Review of chapter "Chapter 5" from Eureka
Review:
This is a very good fic, but one small problem girl...You NEED to get back to work on it!
it seems to me that almost EVERY Inuyasha/BvS fic is one or two chapters and then nothing. At least you did give 5 chapters, but you still quit back in '03. this is basically 6 years later and I am wondering if you will ever come back to it or do any other the other stories that you said that you were going to do like: A Simple Twist of Hope. I looked all over the place and no story. I even pulled up all the stories that you have wrote and not there. You haven't done ANYTHING since Aug 28th of '03. I would love to read more on this story and really hope that you come back to these wonderful stories and apparently so do a couple of other people like Jinxy!

Review of chapter "Chapter 5" from Serena
Review:
Way to go, girl! I was so happy when I saw you decided on a W/Sesshaumaru pairing. :)) Love it! But, I think it's taking a bit too long. Maybe you can do a quick recap of where everyone went instead of doing a part by part story of each encounter with a new slayer. Other than that, your fic is great. Hope to read more of it soon!

Review:
You have made one mistake, Inu-Yasha is at Glory level strength and speed, far above Slayer level.

Review:
interesting chapter. i think Keiko got a bit more gutsy with her slayer-ness. but all in all, any YYH crossover makes me happy happy. and you should, you know, talk about Kagome again, i'm going insane here.

Kyaaaaa!!!! Kawaii! I love this fic! Fun fun fun!
Update soon?
Oh btw which anime is Kurama from?? Oh oh! Can I request a quick cameo? By Genjo Sanzo! Oh wait... Different universe and all... *sweatdrop*... Never mind... What about Sohma Kyo from Furuba! He can be just passing in the background or Buffy can accidentaly hug him and *pyon*! Cat Kyo!... Maybe not... He he he...
Anyway, I really like the direction this fic is going and you have a good story line... *snickers* I can see what the future Inuyasha/Kagome relationship will be like... Whoa... Volent much?? He he!
Can't wait for more!

Review:
I like this idea. I like Kagome as a Slayer and I like the new level this brings to her relationship with Inuyasha. However, I do have some comments and suggestions.

One - Kagome is strong but not *that* strong! She'd be on a comparable level with Inuyasha in terms of strength (possibly even stronger) but it'd be unlikely that she could push him so far with only a finger, especially considering the angle and physical exertion involved.

Two - more physical confidence is one thing. A complete change in personality is another. I like the parallels you've drawn to the original movie (because, hey, nifty!) but would Kagome actually punch an elderly woman like Kaede? So hard that it put a hole in her wall? It'd also be nice to see a bit more explanation for how exactly Kaede knew so much about Slayers. Remember, the Watchers are an *English* organization and while Europe would have had a quite a bit of contact with Japan during the time period in which Inuyasha takes place, there are pitfalls to assuming the Watchers were worldwide by that point.

Three - assuming that Slayers - if not Watchers - are a universal phenomenon, it'd wouldn't be unlikely that one of the other memebers of the Inu-tachi would have at least heard rumors about them. Slayers are the boogiemen of the demon world and all three of Kagome's companions (four if you bring in Sango) are heavily involved in the paranormal. It seems unlikely that only Kaede would have heard of them (though she may be the only one who actually knows what they are).

Four - Beware multiple crossover syndrome! By bringing in FK you're now operating with three seperate canons, two of which directly contradict each other. Ask yourself how necessary bringing in another series is. Do you need it here? Will you be able to control all three to such a point that their worlds exist in more or less harmony? Keep in mind, the bigger the crossover, the bigger the cast, the more unwieldy it all becomes.

Five - Just some ideas and questions to keep in mind: there's a Slayer already running around the Warring States period. Kagome also possesses considerable spiritual powers even without Slayerness thrown in. How do the two abilities resolve themselves? How does that then affect Kikyo? And does the Sit function on Inuyasha's rosary thus become redundant now that Kagome can match him in physical prowess?

Six - on a technical level - make a decision on how much Japanese you want to incoporate into your story and stay consistent. Is it necessary to still refer to Inuyasha as a "hanyou" when everything else has been translated? And watch out for titles. This series is especially tough for English-speaking fans to write entirely as so many of the Japanese titles and terms don't actually translate all that well. It's a minor quibble in this case (you've kept far away from fangirl Japanese! thank you!) but it *is* something to keep an eye on.

Seven - did you know you posted Chapter 3 twice?

Okay, that's all (no, really!). Again, I like the ideas you've got here but crossovers are slippery things. Just be aware of how your chosen universes interact with one another.

Review:
I couldn't read the second half of this chapter. That's the problem with multi-crossovers, no one will be familiar with all the fandoms. But it's your story, and you can do whatever the plot bunnies force you to do. Or maybe....you could separate the different slayers' stories into different fics? Well, either way, I'd still read the Inu-Yasha stuff, so I say- keep going.

ahhh! BtVS the movie quotes! AHH! wahoo, i noticed that straight away, because, you know, Merrick rocked. ^_^

Overall, it seems a little too convenient that Kaede knew what a slayer was, but i can buy that, I guess. I hope you write more!
