Review of chapter "Sweet Dreams" from Inoeth
Review:
Ah, I just found this story and thought It was pretty darn fantastic. You really have done an excellent job of totally changing the story around in a believable way from the actions of the various characters as well as your own made up ones. Additionally, I like how you portray the Watchers Council as a rich, snobish secret society that nonetheless understands the stakes and seems to have been hit with an idiot foam ball rather than the idiot hammer that hit them in cannon. and I would have loved to see at least the conclusion of the fight with Glory, if possibly even more. I wonder what the war against the First would have been like with what, 4 slayers to begin with, along with a far more competent Watchers Council and better trained Potentials.

Anyways, thanks for the entertaining and interesting take on the Buffy verse and I hope that you pick up writing buffy fanfiction some more

Review of chapter "Sweet Dreams" from lunalurker
Review:
And of course it ends on a cliffhanger! Argh. Still, was good and dark and different, and I liked a lot of the plot twists and the very unusual crossovers, and I hope that the author comes back to finish it one day. Thanks for writing!

Review of chapter "Sweet Dreams" from draconis
Review:
Has story been abandoned?

It's been awhile since I read this, but as I recall it's a very decent bit of cross-over. Planning to re-read, but it would be nice to know the story hasn't been abandoned.

I thought it could use a bit more exploring Willow's potential for going down the 'dark' path.

Review of chapter "Sweet Dreams" from (Recent Donor)DaveTurner
Review:
Thank-you, thank-you! At last something worth while reading!

Comments.
To be honest if I were Willow I'd have said 'Stuff you' and buggered off to a different reality where people were nice to me! But that's if she was me. Obviously in this reality she's not learnt the lesson that magic can't solve your problems by itself.

Brave Kennedy! Always knew she was the right girl for the job. No childhood hang-ups, actually wants to be a Slayer. Kennedy rocks!

Can't wait for the next update (hint!)

All the best,
DaveT.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the rec! You have been instrumental in getting me to write this chapter (by nagging) and I am halfway through the next.

It's good you think Willow is being hard done by because I really didn't want to bash her, and fortunately my Beta helps me out on that.

Willow wants to fix things - the road to hell is paved with good intentions unfortunately for her.

And yes, Kennedy rocks.

Review of chapter "Sweet Dreams" from (Current Donor)Hotpoint
Review:
Got an unexpected afternoon off work so spotting the update I decided to read this through from the start (I don't usually have much time to *read* fanfic). Excellent work and bringing in Good Will hunting, and in particular Ginger Snaps was handled excellently.

Could have used more gunfights though... :-p
Comments from author:
There were guns! I realise you're teasing me. But yes, action for me is hard as I keep needing to check what the hell weapons are called.

Thank you very much for your review. Wsn't Gingersnaps just the best movie?

Review of chapter "Sweet Dreams" from redrikki
Review:
I'm glad you updated, but talk about screwed up. I loved the bit with Faith and the nifty psychic therapy and mocking of the "its not your fault" scene from Good Will Hunting. On the other hand, putting Willow in charge of planning this show was probably not the best plan on the part of the Boston crew. Can't wait to see how it turns out.
Comments from author:
thank you for your review and describing what you liked. Letting Willow be in charge might be a good thing to do - or it might not.

Review of chapter "Everybody hurts" from (Recent Donor)DaveTurner
Review:
First; Thanks now I know what MIT stands for!

Second; Great story can't wait for you to finish. I will make it my personal project to bug you until you write more!

Nice to see Willow as something other than a goody two shoes, and your sympathetic treatment of Kennedy...makes a nice change.

Do Bostonians really swear so much? This isn't a complaint just a question.

All the best,
DaveT.
Comments from author:
And an interesting question it is too. I do not know. I base Will Hunting and friends conversations and The Departed folks on the scripts used in the films in which everyone used the fuck word all the time.

Thank you for the review. I shall finish this story.

Review of chapter "Everybody hurts" from (Recent Donor)DaveTurner
Review:
Right then now on chapter eight.

I'm sure Wes was a Dragoon not a Buffoon!

The party reminded me of a few I went to in my younger days...when I was about 40!

Onwards ever onwards...until tomorrow!

All the best,
DaveT.

Review of chapter "Saturday Night's Alright" from (Recent Donor)DaveTurner
Review:
Ok got up to chapter five and so far so good! Recognise the BtVS characters(of course) and Gingersnaps people but not 'Good Will Hunting', never seen it. Helps make it read more like a novel.

Actually liking the background more that the original (BtVS) more down to earth...gritty...dark.

Laughed a lot at the cat story.

Only one negative. Thought it a bit contrived how everyone ends up in Boston but I can suspend my disbelief until the end of the story. Another fic I should have started to read in about February! Will read more tomorrow.

All the best,
DaveT.
Comments from author:
Good Will Hunting is a great movie. I love movies and TV series that are not set in L.A.

It was indeed contrived how everyone ended up in Boston. But for story purposes I needed the characters. I didn't need Spike. I never need Spike.

It does make sense for Willow of all people to end up in Boston because she was accepted into M.I.T. at the end of season 3.

I see this story as how a series called Faith the Vampire Slayer set in Boston and made by HBO might have played out.

The cat story as I said was in the original script but never made it into the movie. I thought it made a great character introduction.

Thank you very much for the review.

Review of chapter "Everybody hurts" from JennyLal
Review:
You didn't trust her enough Faithie! So Glory finally found Dawn. Is Faith going to make the decision Buffy couldn't? Or will Wes make it for her? Loved the minion's conversation.
Comments from author:
Is Faith or Wes going to make the decision Buffy couldn't? Well events will go differently because it's not just Faith and Wes are not Buffy and Giles, and Will Hunting, Kennedy, Oz and Ginger Fitzgerald are on board instead of Tara and Spike, (notice Kennedy and Will Hunting sensibly killed two of the minions) but the important factor to remember is Dawn is a Lehane not a Summers. Thank you very much for your review.

Comments from author:
Thank you very much for your review. Gingersnaps is a Canadian film and if you loved Buffy you should love Gingersnaps. See if you can rent it.

Review of chapter "The British are coming/B. babysits" from JennyLal
Review:
“Don’t bother.” Buffy marched over to her purse on the motel table. She pulled out her list of instructions. “If Dawn comes onto Xander…” Buffy read out loud. Buffy clenched her fists and looked Dawn straight in the eye. Repeating word for word her instructions. “Faith had Xander first, Dawn.”

This made me laugh like a lunatic! In a room full of people. Thanks for that!

Always pleased to cause public embarassment. Thank you for reviewing.
