Review of chapter "The Edge of her Skin" from Noclaf
Review:
My fist though was "Jesus! WTF?" but then I was like hmm.... interesting..... and totally creepy. An excellent warning against picking up creepy hitchhikers, even if you are a powerful witch.

Review:
You should warn about character death, but besides that great fic.
Comments from author:
If I warned about the character death then that would negate the purpose of the fic and ruin the ending. Thank you for liking it anyways.

Review:
Hey darlin'!

Absolutely gorgeous imagery. You paint the scene so well. It makes it so easy to picture the story in my head.

And naughty Willow, cheating on her girl like that... tsk tsk...

Well done!

Thank you! The detail did not go to waste in this one, yay!

Poor Willow getting her hand caught in the cookie jar then her heart crushed for it. I really need to write a story for her thats filled with happy...she deserves it after this one. ;)

*hugs*

Review of chapter "The Edge of her Skin" from Lisette
Review:
Huh... you killed Willow. *grins* I kind of liked it! Well done - very well written with great descriptions that truly brought the piece to life. Words that inspired not only sight, but sound and feeling as well. A very, very visual piece.
Comments from author:
*beams* That's what I was shooting for because the pilot for SPN is so stark. Such a visual slap to the face in most parts that I tried to capture that in this story...which is both difficult and exhilarating to do.

Thank you so much for noticing and letting me know that the hard work was not in vain!

Review of chapter "The Edge of her Skin" from Specks
Review:
ooh. Creepy, I like. Especially because it fits the less stellar aspects of Willow's personality so well. (Not that I dislike Willow, she's a wonderful character and her complexity makes this very believable.) Great job!
Comments from author:
I still cringe for poor Cordy in season 3 and Willow is complex and fun. She is for me the most challenging character to write next to Xander. (I can never get his voice right). Thank for taking the time to review!

Review of chapter "The Edge of her Skin" from Sadie
Review:
Wow. Nice. Just, *nice*.
As much as I love Willow, the death was needed...and you just wrote this so beautifully. Ah, just excellent!
Comments from author:
Thank you! I adore Willow but for this story to work she had to die. Thank you for taking the time to review.

Review of chapter "The Edge of her Skin" from (Past Donor)exiled
Review:
Ouch! Poor Willow! Poor Buffy! (Cause we all know Buffy is Willow's soul mate and thus the "she" in the story must be Buffy.) (Very big evil grin!)

Your descriptions of the settling were eerily beautiful, I knew something bad was going to happen but couldn't stop reading, didn't want to stop reading. Even knowing she was up to no good I was still extremely shocked at the ending. Willow's supposed to be the uber-witch and yet, the ending was so quick and surprising she didn't have time to react.

I truly enjoyed it, thank you for sharing it.

Reply: I agree that in this story, Willow was dead before she could blast the spook. (Grin) So to answer your question, yes. You did a great job of setting it up and showing it. I am not a huge SPN watcher; however you gave me more than enough information to be sucked in by the ending.

Again, thank you for sharing it.
Comments from author:
Is that who the 'she' was? I was wondering. ;)

I'm glad you enjoyed it and you agreed that if caught off guard Willow wouldn't be able to call up her super mojo. I adore her but the story wouldn't have been the same without her death.

Thank you for taking the time to review.

Review of chapter "The Edge of her Skin" from (Moderator)KaylaShay
Review:
Ava, this fic was just too awesome for words. You told it in the mood that matched (in my opinion) the way the character was portrayed in the show. I love that Willow gave into the lust and the way she didn't go all uber!witch on the spirit. I truly loved this and it fit the Team Hellfire perfectly.
Comments from author:
Thank you! That entire episode was such a contrast of dark and light. I love the scene when Sam and Dean are first reunited and they're arguing over why Dean didn't call first. They boys are black and the background is whats colored but you still focus on them. I applaud whoever directed that epi.

As for the Woman in White, for some reason I sympathized with her. Even when she was killing off those men a part of me was horrified with how she came to be and it reminded me of the old Grimm's Fairy Tale "The Butcher." And I adore Willow but in this instance she was caught off guard and in that split second of letting she was killed.

Team Hellfire rocks!

Review of chapter "The Edge of her Skin" from (Moderator)Demona
Review:
FIRST!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(Copied without shame from my LJ review.)

Holy crap Ava! I mean, you kinda know that this is gonna happen...cause she is the Woman in White and she seems to kill everyone. But wow. You did such a good job of giving us a good set up, details, descriptions leading up to the end.

And then you killed Willow! I can't believe it. I mean, I can, but wow! Great job, I'm just stunned.

PS - I liked the summary that you chose to go with. Sorry I didn't get on the beta'ing thing right away, but Kayla did a great job. :)
Comments from author:
I was gonna copy from my reply but the fact that you put FIRST in all caps made me snort soda out of my nose and I thought I'd share that with you.

The summary had the Kayla stamp of approval and now I'm pondering just how many of BTVS crew I can believably kill off. *smiles innocently*
