Review of chapter "Epilogue" from littleoldme
Review:
Thanks for the clarification. I love Supernatural, but live outside the US and therefore haven't seen any of season two yet, so my knowledge of the canon is a little fuzzy.
Comments from author:
That's OK. The story is a lot clearer in my own head and I have to remember that not everyone can read my mind as I assume they can. *g* I should have done a better job of clarifying in the story!

Review:
Thank the Gods (or you) for that epilogue. I would have been uncomfortable all night, thinking of Illyria with Child being dragged back into the deeper well. Thanks!
Comments from author:
If I were a darker person, it would have happened. But I'm too big of a softie and want these two crazy kids to be happy.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from Ellie
Review:
Maybe it's cause it's late... But what the hell do John and Illyria have to do that they need to protect Mal and the others from?

Otherwise I loved it. I loved Illyria shooting John and her speech to the demon that had messed with the Winchesters for so long. She was right, he should have known to respect his elders. Hope we'll see more.

Comments from author:
Protect them from the life of hunting. It screwed up John's family to the point they could barely relate to each other as anything more than seasoned soldiers. It's a dangerous business. It ends up isolating you with almost no one you can rely on because they can always be used against you.

John, and by extension Illyria, was trying to grant them what Sam had always wanted - a relatively normal life free of fear and that overwhelming obligation to save everybody. It's a thankless, deadly, unappreciated, and socially isolating existence. It's a life they could never be honest about. John didn't want that for them.

I know it has a lot of similarities with what the Firefly crew currently do, but without the overwhelming sense of "crazy" that a Hunter has to deal with. There's a whole subculture that deals with petty thievery and respects it, but not so much with hunting nightmarish creatures and things that aren't supposed to exist.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from mithrilandtj
Review:
Great ending! But why shouldn't they let their descendants know they're alive?
Why was River so adamant?
Comments from author:
Thank you!

Hunting is a dangerous business. It ruined John's family. He's just trying to look out for them.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from littleoldme
Review:
Awwww... they had a little girl! And they tricked the crew. I'm a bit confused, though- does that mean the demon is still out there?
Comments from author:
This tests the depth of your Supernatural knowledge - the Demon is well and truly dead and John *would* have been, if he hadn't been bound to Illyria. That was the loophole that saved him, though they didn't know if it would or not. Since John is bound to Illyria (remember in the first story about how he can only get about 30 feet away from her? Illyria is the locus of the bond - the center of John's circle, so to speak), the only way to truly kill John would be to kill Illyria. Which the Demon could have tried, but he was so intent on getting to the child he didn't think of it and wouldn't have wanted to because attaining the power of the child through possession was his most important goal, at the end.

Sorry I didn't make that more clear! My betas got it, but they are more Supernaturally versed.

Plus, just to make John and Illyria not sound so evil, they didn't set out to trick the crew because they did not know if John were truly dead or not, but were trying to save the crew from any interaction with the Deeper Well clean-up crew should it show up for Illyria. When John resurrected, they used the situation to their advantage since they discussed not wanting the kids involved in hunting earlier in the story.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from (Recent Donor)Kiwikatipo
Review:
Thank you for writing this story and the series. It was very original. I enjoyed it. I shudder to think of Illyria as a mother but I suppose the child will be part Hell god too.
Comments from author:
Thank you! The child will have the power Illyria used to be able to contain, so it's going to be pretty powerful - human, but powerful.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eight" from AnnOfMidnight
Review:
Very good. I just don't know what to say without sounding redundant. I'm going to be so sad when you're done with the series...
Comments from author:
I'll be sad, too. There's a little more coming, but it'll end soon! *sniff*

Review of chapter "Chapter Seven" from Infinix
Review:
Huh I am slower than even I thought. I had been thinking it was just Simon and River that were related to John. Any chance of the Winchester abilities manifesting in the others? Great chapter.
Comments from author:
The power isn't great in them all - only River's really manifests. We saw a little with Jayne's instincts taking on the voice of Vera, as well as a little Zoe unease.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eight" from littleoldme
Review:
I loved the John/Illyria interaction over the gun. You've made such a great pairing out of the two of them, which is near-impossible to do. I also love how you're tying this into the Firefly canon, especially with Saffron's husband.
Comments from author:
Thank you! I really enjoyed tying in some of the Firefly back story into this. The John/Illyria gun conversation made me sad, but I'm glad it worked out for them.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eight" from Cutiepie
Review:
I'm now trying to picture Illyria as a mother. Since her child will be (most likely) immortal, she won't be fussing over every little thing and so people may look at her and think that she is cold or a bad mother, but I also think that she will be worse than any "mama bear" if her child is threatened with non-physical harm (emotional or psychological injury, for instance). Especially with the flashes of "humanity" that she has been showing with the pregnancy, I bet she is going to have the "mommy" vibe BIG time. So I am just wondering if her protective instinct will extend to any and all children she comes in contact with (as it has with me). I would fight tooth-and-nail for ANY child, with the exception of one who is threatening MY child. =]
Comments from author:
You'll see a little, tiny bit of Illyria as mom in some short stories following this one. It's a strange concept!

Review of chapter "Chapter Seven" from littleoldme
Review:
I love the image of River as a puppy nipping at Illyria's heels. Wonderfully written, that, and I think the idea of all of the crew being related is really cool! I also love that Illyria is pregnant. Dare I hope for a sequel with a little supernatural Winchester running around on-board Serenity? Because that would be awesome.
Comments from author:
There are some short baby stories to follow this one. I wanted to know how Illyria and John acted throughout pregnancy and babyhood. Illyria as a mom? That is something almost incomprehensible.

Review of chapter "Chapter Seven" from ForeverAndEver
Review:
I think this was the best chapter yet. I loved Jayne talking about the story he was told when he was little, and the crew realizing how related to each other they are. Wonderful!
Comments from author:
Thank you!

I figured that having an immortal Dad, Sam and Dean would do what they could to make sure their descendants had clues to his story in case he popped up again. Makes me wonder what they story was. I nearly made it a song, but I was stumped when it came to lyrics so it became a bedtime story.

Review of chapter "Chapter Seven" from (Recent Donor)Kiwikatipo
Review:
"I’ve seen it afore,” Mal muttered. “On Bellerophon - Saffron’s would-be husband has it.” An angry gleam colored his gaze. “He owes me a good turn.”

Inspired

And I thought Illyria was in the family way.
Comments from author:
I love being able to tie in old episodes to these things! Thanks!

Yep, you guessed it pretty early on. It's making her lose control of herself physically - reason for all the flickering and episodic human-ness.

Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from (Recent Donor)Kiwikatipo
Review:
I don't understand, how come Inara got killed? And I liked her.

god you're right I forgot about Jess. I thought the demon only did it to special kids mothers when they turned six months old.
Comments from author:
You just gave yourself away as a non-Supernatural watcher! The Demon tends to kill women who are in the way of his plans by burning them on the ceiling. It's quite traumatic. For instance, John's wife Mary was burned on the ceiling over their six month old's crib. Then, when that six month old got into college, his girlfriend died the same way because, as the Demon put it, "She was in the way." Meaning, in the way of the Demon's larger plan for that child.

However, in the story so far I've set up that since so much time has passed, the Demon's original plan had been rendered null and now he's just pissed off at the Winchesters. So he killed Inara to make Mal miserable. The Demon likes making people unhappy. Plus, it tied Mal into the main storyline.
