Okay, my thoughts: that was a good chapter.

Review of chapter "The Pointless Author Page" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Willow's been through a lot. I don't have a problem with her being 23 and with a 40-something man.
The rest of what you put in -- somewhat confusing. But thanks for trying to explain your thinking.

Review of chapter "And we found out what happened to Oz" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Okay -- liked the storytelling, except I think you had one plot beat missing.

They're helping a weaping Willow,who is conscious by the way, without asking
for her permission to do the ritual.

And tihs was just after Tara said it was her story to tell. I think you could probalby
easily fix with a paragraph or two or some dialog where Tara asks Willow.
And Willow either gestures agreement, nods her head still weaping, or says something simple, like:
"Tell." or "Show them."
Otherwise it comes across as an invasion of privacy.

Review of chapter "Mysterious people, or as mysterious-as-I-could-make-them people" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Okay, pleased with the story-telling, but slightly less than pleased that your broadcasted about your original character that you are bringing into the mix. It is just fine for us to wonder, but try not to have the main characters too obsessed with thinking about original character, all the time, if you can. Please.

Review:
That was entertaining in a grown-up but not rigid way. Very entertaining.

Review of chapter "More surprises, accompanied by gawking, and lots of it" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Well, since you asked... I thought your continuation of the friendship line between Willow and Giles was nicely kept up by Willow stated observations about Giles. I'm glad you showed her sense of wonder, and I'm wondering if she's still broadcasting all of her thoughts to those around her. Also looking forward to finding out if she is Dumbledore's child or grand-child. Or someone elses?

Review of chapter "Poor Willow, so confused" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Charming depiction of Willow and Giles. I'm glad you decided to go with Willow the adult (in Giles' eyes).
Even if he is mentor and sometime father figure:
1) He probably reserves saying that out loud to Buffy
2) adults need friends, not father-figures
Lovely use of Giles' hinting -- just to amuse himself, really. Very Slitherin.

Also good demonstration that Willow's perception isn't right about everything.
Giles obviously did not have a permanent drain on his magic, as you showed us!

Review of story "Redemption, or Something Like It" from Anonymous Reviewer
Review:
Cute. I think this definitely could go some interesting places - I like the whole Oz/Lupin parallel ... please tell me you keep Tara in. It makes me sad that so many fanfic writers that pair Willow with men seem to think that they have to ignore Tara.

Hell, can we SPELL bisexual?

Sorry. Anyway, I'm liking it. I would like it MORE if you keep with the Tara cannon, but I'm interested to see more.

Review:
This is a great fic so far! Very entertaining. I like that Willow isn't moping all the time. And Severus really needs to learn when to stay silent, eh? I mean, now THERE'S a bright idea. Let's remind the girl who tried to end the world WHY she tried to end the world. After she just went all evil, veiny Willow on you. Lol.

Anywho. I can't wait to see what you have in store next!
