Review of chapter "Chapter 7" from ShyBob
I love this story. The sad (or awesome) thing is I've learned everything I know about SPN from this series. Your Illyria characterization and dialogue is priceless.
Comments from author:
Thank you! Let me assure you that the early seasons of SPN are much more awesome than this story, though. :-)

Review of chapter "Chapter 7" from (Current Donor)DeepBlueJoy
This is far and away the funniest Illyria story I've ever read. It also captured perfectly the irreverence of the Winchester brothers.

“Dude, she just said you had no balls.” He grinned over at his still fuming brother. “I think I like her, too.”

That was truly priceless!

I don't always enjoy Supernatural stories b/c there seems to be an obsession with moroseness or incest, neither of which excite me all that much. this was extremely refreshing. I like the John you created very much, and you channeled Illyria and Fred with a side order of Spike via the mouth of the old one... that was seriously funny and touching and smart.

I'm impressed. You have no idea how hard that is to do.


FYI: You've joined a very small pantheon... People who've received both a 10 and a Rec (or either) from me
Comments from author:
I have no problem with the WinchesterBrotherTouching, but the utter angst of everything can get tiring. I was just reading the SPN Big Bangs for this year and they are almost all drowning in melancholy. I think we need a good slapstick comedy every once in a while. I'm not saying this is it, but it has its light moments. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed it!

Review of chapter "Chapter 7" from littleoldme
Hee! This was great. I love all of your Illyria dialogue. And the way she wrote "loser" on John's forehead in his own blood. And sam's smart ass "Illyria said she'd buy me a pony" line.
Comments from author:
Thank you! Illyria has learned to loosen up a little under John's influence - which is a miracle since he seems so uptight.

Review of chapter "Chapter 1" from FaithLestrange
I love this story...although the ease Dean and Sam had after shooting thier father then laughing about it after he came back and joking with Illyria was slightly disturbing.
Comments from author:
Yeah, I agree that it would be disturbing, but a lot of time had passed between John getting shot and resurrecting. They had at least 3+ hours to go over the whys and hows (what we as the readers already know because we've read the story which is why I didn't repeat it) so they had time to adjust to the idea that their dad was always going to be around, no matter what. In real life (which is so odd to say in relation to supernatural shows!), there would be endless angsting and therapy, but that's just not fun to write (for me, at least) so I sped the process up a little.

Hee. Though now I'm imagining the therapy session - "Our father is immortal, but we never spend any quality time together! You'd think he could try to drop by every other month or so!"

Review of chapter "Chapter 7" from mokahi
Great story! You've really captured Illyria/Fred. I love the opening scene that sets up the story. I'd go for more Illyria/John Winchester adventures.
Comments from author:
Thank you! I needed to get in a bit of back story and set up the future action with that scene, so I'm glad it worked!

Review of chapter "Chapter 7" from immortalwizardelffan
This was actually hilarious. I love how John was all "He's Lucifer's shower curtain?!" when Illyria told him about the Demon. At least now the boys can have more of a normal life, and Sam won't have to worry about the Yellow-eyed bastard trying to get him on the side of evil. I was soooooo hoping you'd have the boys recognize Illyria's "mortal" form as being identical to Andrea Barr, the woman they saved in the first season episode "Dead in the Water" as the actress who played Andrea and Illryia/Fred were one in the same. And I agree that there should be a sequel where the boys meet with the Scoobies, maybe now they can get a paying job working for the council and have Willow work her mojo on the computer and get their records cleared.
Comments from author:
I decided to avoid the look-alike part since it had been done in other stories. Heck, I can't remember what people look like past a day so I made Sam and Dean like me in that respect (of course, maybe I just have a freakishly bad memory for faces). Thank you for reading!

Review of chapter "Chapter 7" from RogueCrocodile
This is an excellent Illyria story with believable character development. It lives up to the summary and then some. A very entertaining read. I'll be looking forward to reading more from you in the future.

EDIT: I didn't honestly look at the end of the story. Going forward, please put them in the first chapter.

All that being said I'm looking forward to reading your story this evening or tomorrow morning when I get a free moment...and I'll be sure to review.
Comments from author:
Thank you! It was a fun, silly story to get poor John out of Hell, and to let us know whatever happened to Illyria after the showdown at the end of Angel.

Review of chapter "Chapter 7" from amusewithaview
That was awesome! I adore that story more than I thought possible! Please wtie a sequel, only get the Buffy-verse crew into the act? This was so much fun to read. The Illyria-John interaction was phenomenally fun and interesting. I especially liked the title of your fic. Perfect, absolutely perfect!
Comments from author:
There is a sequel, but it takes place in the future in the Firefly 'verse. However, since John and Illyria are going to live forever, I may pop back and forth to fill in missing gaps between the present and the Firefly future. Thank you for reading!

Review of chapter "Chapter 7" from (Past Donor)morgyair
I enjoyed the entire story way too there any chance of more adventures with Illyria and John Winchester?
Comments from author:
Definitely! I already started the sequel. They just had too many things to do to fit in one story.

Review of chapter "Chapter 7" from Mirielle
You know, I clicked on the story link out of morbid curiosity, expecting something slightly cracky and most probably bad. Much to my surprise, this actually rocked! Seriously, you get about fifty bonus points just for squeezing in the cavemen/astronauts joke! All in all, this was very well written, tightly plotted and oh yes, deeply hilarious. Nicely done. :D
Comments from author:
Thank you! I couldn't fit my whole title in the summary of the story and used what I could to abbreviate, but was afraid what people might think if they didn't get the title joke with Illyria's quote. I'm very gald you braved the waters to read it anyway.

I apologize. I had a small one at the end, but I detailed it and put it in the beginning.

Review of chapter "Chapter 7" from Belisarius
Very interesting, I'm a big fan of Illyria and I have to say this is one of the better stories featuring her. Hope to see more from you soon!
Comments from author:
Thanks! There aren't a lot of Illyria stories on here with her as a main character in her own right, so I was glad to add one to the bunch.
