Review of chapter "Divergent Paths" from Harry
Review:
Buffy, I can understand you going the route of the Dark Side. But all it leads to is death and destruction. You WERE A SLAYER, one of, if not THE BEST that had ever been! And you choose to go this route? Shame on you. And watch out for your apprentice. Sooner or later, Vader WILL come after you!

Review of chapter "How We Fell" from Harry
Review:
I can understand how Buffy was seduced to the Dark Side. The PTB made a mistake sending her into another battle so soon after the fall of Sunnydale, with her being so tired of war, made it easy to turn her to the Dark Side. Now, the question is, can Faith bring her back, or will it end up as a fight between Sith and Jedi?

Review of chapter "Dark Heart of the Galaxy" from Harry
Review:
I think that Whistler is right. If anyone can make it to B, its Faith. One who has tasted the Dark Side and come out in one piece. Now, time to see if B can be redeemed.

Review of chapter "A Very Long Day" from DarthTenebrus
Review:
After re-reading this one once again I find it incredible that you haven't updated this or posted any new chapters. This absolutely must continue; to do otherwise would be gross negligence of the highest order of magnitude. Wouldn't you agree?

Please continue this story. Help us, you're our only hope...

Review of chapter "A Very Long Day" from DarthTenebrus
Review:
Well written, very poignant. Everyone who has ever known anything about the world of Buffy Summers and her Scoobies would have a VERY hard time accepting that she could fall so hard in the Dark Side. This story makes it look like Buffy Summers is truly dead and nothing remains save a horrific tyrant bent on conquering not just the Star Wars universe, but her own as well. One can feel, truly feel the evil emanating from Lord Sumar, and the anguish and confusion that General Faith Lehane suffers as a result of watching how her friend becomes something worse than any demon or vampire they have ever faced together.

More chapters please!

EDIT -- 17 DEC 2012 --

Whatever happened to this story?! This CAN'T! be left unfinished!! Respond, PLEASE!

Review:
Howdy,

Its AAALLLLIVE! Seriously, good to see this have some life and here's ta hoping Faith doesn't fall into the trap of having to become the enemy to defeat her. She's ALREADY been there, and I hope she realizes this.

Review of chapter "A Very Long Day" from Cutiepie
Review:
I can't believe that you finally updated this story! Wonderful!! I note that I didn't review before (bad me) so I reread the whole thing and want to comment now.

Buffy *can't* believe that she is evil. That is necessary for me to buy into this. That really kind of bothered me in the scene when she basically ransacks Faith's mind to find out where Ben is. It seemed too sadistic, pain for pain's sake. Buffy can have a ruthless streak, but she didn't beat up vamps *just* to make them hurt (at least as far as I can remember). I picture her more saying, "Sorry about all the agony this is going to cause you, but I just have to know," as she methodically searches all of Faith's memories. Kind of a "I'm doing this for your own good and I know what's best" mentality, as an extension of "general Buffy" from season 7 taken to an extreme. Maybe she even considered showing Faith what had happened to her as being adequate recompense for what she "took". Isn't she nice to share?

Actually, now that I think about it, I don't even remember "reading minds" as being a Jedi power (otherwise, how did so many secrets end up being kept?) Could you please explain where that power is coming from? Thanks!

I can totally see Buffy turning on the Jedi if she felt they were trying to control her, like the watchers and PTB did previously, and learning about the "dark side" of the Force mainly to prevent anyone from being able to get her under their thumb ever again. She probably wouldn't even refer to it as the DARK side, but maybe the "emotional" side, the "human" side or even the "feeling" side. The Force for a slayer, especially Buffy, would likely be split into the brain side vs the heart side, logical vs emotional, thought vs feeling. And her success as a slayer came from her emotional connections with her family and friends, so she would be fully primed to believe that the side of the force that includes those connections would be the better, most successful route to follow.

I sure hope that you and your muse will be able to keep going on this story now. I'll be waiting patiently for the next update.
Comments from author:
There has been lots of mind reading in Star Wars. Vader found out about Leia being his daughter during the final battle with Luke when "his thoughts betrayed him". It's never outright been called telepathy, but I figure anyone who can influence minds ("these are not the droids you're looking for!") can read them, too.

As for Buffy, the whole "emotions are power" thing is certainly up her alley, but in the Star Wars galaxy that leaves her wide open to the lure of the Dark Side. And you're right, she probably does not consider herself evil. I doubt Palpatine did, either. They just think/thought they know what's best for the greater good and act on it, no matter the collateral damage.

Review of chapter "Dark Heart of the Galaxy" from (Current Donor)thetwitmachine
Review:
I like this story so far. The one criticism I'd have to mention is that jumping backwards and forwards every chapter is going to kill the coherence of it as a unified whole instead of just as a collection of chapters. The first chapter or two, to show how Buffy is and why faith is there as well as to foreshadow other events, were well placed. I'm not sure bouncing backwards and forwards from this point on would be a good thing - try and keep some chapters in a linear order, temporally.

keep writing!
Comments from author:
Don't worry, we're pretty much done jumping around. There will be one more flashback to show how Faith got to Coruscant, but that's it. It'll be linear from then on.
