Review of chapter "A Purpose" from lucidity
This was magnificently done. It's very hard to get me to read a whole page with no dialog in it. But I just read every word of this. I thought, 'this is a great characterization of Clark, but it doesn't sound much like Buffy'. And then, all of a sudden, it does. And I can see it. I can see the hug, the smile, the conflict in both of them. And then her reaction to the call. It's not OUR Buffy, but its the Buffy that could have been. The one that would have been if she had grown under the shadow of Clark.

Review of chapter "A Purpose" from PrincessTai
>>I’m his rock, I‘ve long realized. His reminder that after everything and no matter what happens to the rest of the world, he has me. I’m his responsibility.
That phrase gave me a really Dawnie feel. The entire story did at first.
Where she hates him and she loves him and she wants to help him but she wants to be noticed to. The darkness is there but it isn't the same darkness that Buffy has. It's more of it and also different. And you show that turn. After all she is the Slayer. She would bring him down. At least in Smallville, Kansas. Clark would never get it. One thing to take down a meteor freak who probably can't really help themselves, it's a big other thing to take down a demon-bit vampire. She would never fit. Funny thing is she was the one born to that world (at least for the ff). Unlike Clark who fits right in (and unlike Dawn in the BtVS, so her outsiderness makes sense). I like that :-D Such excellent insight for a ficlet!

Interesting character study and a nice little what if scenario. I give it two shiny thumbs up for creativity. Thank you for sharing.

Thank you Ava! This was just an idea I got in the middle of the night and I didn't think it was that great. And getting a review from one of my favorite authors is an excellent birthday present. *shamelessly uses birthday leverage for more stories* :) Thanks again for the review! ~~Katie
