Review of chapter "Chapter One" from BlueEyedBrigadier
Wow....things really went dark here, though I have to give you props for having Willow get dusted while she is possessed by Darla. Canonically, we know Willow the Vampiress is highly dangerous and Willow's decent into darkness through the latter seasons means that she would have challenged for leadership and been insanely cruel - the quiet ones are the most dangerous because they scheme and plot and imagine nasty punishments for those that slight them - to a level that would have challenged Buffy.

Can't wait to
Comments from author:
Yep, this is a dark, *dark* universe, and I'm very glad I'm not living in it.

I see Willow's magical potential as probably having helped her gain power as a vampire, so if she had been around, it's quite possible thatBufyf could have been her pet, since Angel wasn't around any longer.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Rune

Bad, bad, bad...

If indeed "Darla" was back and remembered Angel dusting her then she would have been much more careful.

If you need "darla" dusted then make her a cordette.

Keep Willow, don't dust her.
Comments from author:
Yes, I did.

Because that's what my muse told me to write, and I *don't* argue with her, 'cause she'll go away and sulk for weeks or months, sometimes. It's happened a time or two in the past, and I don't want it happening again. ;-(

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from purrfus
Found the new story, came to see this. Fun. Giles' last thoughts - mean even for a demon.
Comments from author:
Well, there was clearly a bit of Ripper still deep inside of Giles, and I guess that's who was speaking at that moment. ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from VillageOrchid
That is very dark. Also interesting that Giles had such a shock that day that he almost doesn't mind being vamped.
Comments from author:
Well, Giles' thoughts were being a lot more vindictive than him not minding being vamped. Imagine having to deal with two immortal teenagers for forever. Isn't that vicious and nasty? ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from MemoryKing
That was epic, just the darkness I was hoping to indulge in.

Thanks for writing!
Comments from author:
Yep, definitely dark, and something that could have easily happened.

Thanks for reviewing.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from jessie
I love stories where all the scoobies are turned. Sad to hear about Willow but glad that Angel got dusted, I never could stand that guy.
Comments from author:
Thanks for reviewing. I appreciate hearing your comments.

And your comments about Angel show you're a very intelligent person, like me. ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Trace
Whoa...didn't see that one coming.

Well, I did, but then you threw me off with them showing up all exhausted-like. You're sneaky, you know that, right?
Comments from author:
Thanks. I do try to be sneaky, and usually, it works. ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Scorpio
*wicked chuckle* Oh, naughty naughty, turning the Slayer & Xander like that. *giggles*

I'd love more of this. A vampiric Scooby Gang is just so cool. Does Spike & Dru join them, or does it end up a sorta gang-war for control of the Hellmouth. And is Kendra still alive during Halloween? Is she the one that would have to fight them, or is it Faith?
Comments from author:
Thanks, I appreciate hearing your thoughts on the story idea.

As far as more of this particular idea goes, I do have some vague thoughts bouncing around the back of my head, but no idea when they might see the light of day (so to speak). ;-)

In Spike and Drusilla's case, all the Scoobies are going to see are possible competitors, who have tried to kill them in the past, so those two are definitely headed towards the dust bin, ASAP. ;-)

Yes, Kendra is still alive at Halloween, but once she shows up in Sunnydale, her life expectancy is going to drop drastically, since she never really impressed me as being very innovative, or a 'think outside the box' type person, and with Buffy as their leader, Xander and Cordy to provide those type of non-standard perspectives, and Giles, Jenny and Amy providing magical backup, I think she's going to be taken down very quickly.

Faith would be harder to take down, since she is a much more spur of the moment, free-form type thinker, but once Xander and Giles twigged onto her emotional problems, she'd be toast, too.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Mcspender
The line about the un aging teens? Cool!!.

I hope Kendra makes an easy job of them.

See ya!

So, there is gonna be a second part, with Faith of all people... Hell Yeaah!!!.

So cool that fic going to be is!!

See ya!!
Comments from author:
Yeah, can you imagine having to live through the ages with an undying teen? ;-)

Actually, as far as Kendra goes, I think that she would have a very difficult time handling a vamped Scooby Gang, since, although she did seem to be quite talented technically, she still seemed to be quite narrow-minded and quite conservative in her attitudes and mental outlook. She definitely did not seem to me to be a 'think outside the box' type of person.

Having to deal with a vampire with special forces training (which includes emphasis on guerrilla warfare) such as Xander received from his costume, and combined with a Turned Slayer and Watcher who would both possess knowledge of the basic training she'd received would seem to me to put her in a situation where the odds are seriously against her. Without a great deal of luck, I think a vamped Scooby gang would take her down fairly quickly and easily.

Faith, however, would be an entirely different proposition, but that's a possible story for another time. ;-)

Cute ending.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Tanydwr
Interesting idea, nice twist on the costumes.

Personally, I kinda like the idea of a vamped Scooby Gang, but I'm not entirely sure how to write it. Usually my ideas start with Angelus somehow, somewhen, turning Buffy, and then it all turns very perverted and weird. I disturb myself sometimes. Still, Buffy and Xander worked very well, still 'them'-enough to fool Giles, temporarily, and still with enough emotional links to the others to enjoy themselves - turning Giles in particular, and the desire for the 'gang' to be together.

Keep up the great work.

Lol, Tanydwr
Comments from author:
This developed from the idea of Ethan giving one of the girls a former possession of Darla's as part of a costume for Halloween, and just developed from there.

If and when Xander and/or Buffy were vamped, I can't see either of them allowing Angelus to remain undusted for more than a minimum amount of time necessary to acquire a stake, since he always seemed to me to be an overbearing and pretentious asshole. He may have been clever as far as figuring out the best ways to psychologically strike at his targets, but he was otherwise a piss-poor leader, especially as far as combat and tactics went.

Glad you enjoyed the story.

You killed Willow! You Bastard!
I do have to say that this was really odd.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from amusewithaview
Heh... I wonder how long it'll take for Demon-Buffy and Demon-Cordelia to kill each other?

Comments from author:
Or decide to cooperate on their efforts and drive Demon Xander out of his mind from their teasing and innuendos? ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Infinix
You have been putting out quite a bit of dark-fic recently. I am not complaining or anything especially not when it is of this high a quality just pointing it out.
Comments from author:
Thanks for reviewing. All I can say is that RL has been exceptionally non-cooperative recently on quite a number of fronts. ;-(
