Review of chapter "Alternate Epilogue" from MarcusSLazarus
The concept was simple, and I’m still ambiguous about the Willow/Claire elements (Claire might have had that ‘thing’ with Gretchen in the series, but that always seemed to me to be the producers trying to appeal to the ‘horny teenage male’ demographic), but Faith/Niki as a couple has a certain potential, given their respectively damaged backgrounds, that you explored rather well.

Interesting touch with Molly and Kennedy’s relationship, even if a part of me wondered at the ‘coincidence’ of the cult’s chosen sacrifice being someone known to both sides when you never specified why Molly in particular was ‘chosen’ for that purpose...

Abrupt ending, but I definitely preferred the second epilogue; gave us a slightly better look at Faith’s new role in the family dynamic of her, Micah and Niki/Jessica, in my opinion.

Review of chapter "Alternate Epilogue" from CustomeHeroine
So the first Epilogue had me in tears. And I was about to bite you out about it then I realized you posted the alternative version as well. Though I hate Niki dying I would have to say I like the first epilogue the most. The tattoos rang out significant to me. So yeah, I've made up my own epilogue in my head (cause I'm just that strange) Thank you for allowing us to choose the ending (in a way). It was a really great fic, and I haven't even seen Heroes before. Please continue writing faith slash. You're really good.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from AngelBlack

Aww I actually kind of liked the Jessica death ending. Then again, I'm incredibly morbid sometimes.

And as for who Claire rescued that knew about the supernatural... who is Sam Winchester! =]

Gonna go read the alternate now...
Comments from author:
I have a morbid nature.. Don't always realize but it's nice to hear someone else istoo sometimes :p

as for Sam Winchester.. who know ;-] maybe you'll find out if I ever have the need to write a Claire-centred or general sequel..

Review of chapter "Alternate Epilogue" from Cutiepie
Well, I thought that the killing of Kennedy (while satisfying to me, since I don't like her) seemed kind of empty. It seemed especially cruel to poor little Molly. However, I liked the idea from another review that Kennedy had sacrificed herself to save Buffy and her baby.

Thank you for not killing off the baby. That always seems to be as cliche as the pregnant woman going into labor in an elevator that is stuck. I know women miscarry all the time (I've lost two myself), but in fanfic is usually seems to be a tear-jerker plot device that allows everyone to continue on "life as usual" afterwards.

Frankly, the first epilogue felt more accurate, considering how you had said that Niki died in the previous chapter. Having her still alive without any explanation didn't ring true (no matter how much it feels better not to have Faith crushed like that). Of course, part of me was almost expecting that Niki might have died, but Jessica stuck around and was in control of Niki's body. Or else that Jessica sacrificed herself to allow Niki to survive. After all, Jessica was always about protecting Niki, whether Niki liked it or not.

The thing I liked best about the second epilogue was that you didn't jump so far into the future, and that you showed things happening rather than "reporting" them (Buffy and Peter announcing their relationship, etc; Willow and Claire with their potential relationship or lack thereof). All in all, a good story and I look forward to more from you. =]
Comments from author:
Thank you.
Oh and I didn't intend to kill Niki, I actually meant for her just lose consiousness (or however you spell it..) then have her head to the hospital and lalala, but when I started writing it sorta slipped my mind.. anyway thanks =]

Review of chapter "Alternate Epilogue" from (Recent Donor)faithfan
There are several reasons I like this alternate ending better.

First The cost of the battle is clearer
--- Fifteen girls out of the plus-seventy, including Kennedy, that had battled in that warehouse were not going to be receiving any of it. (Christmas Presents)
This makes it seem less like you're singling out Kennedy and Nikki.

Second You leave open the chance of a relationship between Willow and Claire.
I especially like the line ... "You don't have to be in love to go out on a date."
Whether you have them together in the sequel, it's nice to give the girl a chance.

Letting Buffy keep the baby is fine, I don't think it hurts the story at all. It make the sacrifice by Kennedy even more meaningful. It might seem I'm all down with Buffy with my Queen B comments, I'm not. I just love having a chance for Faith to be happy too. Which is the Third and Most Important reason this ending is the Best.

I'm sure your Sequel will be great, even if it it Buffy-centric. ;-)

Review of chapter "Alternate Epilogue" from PrimitivePixx
Personally, I like the other ending better. Sometimes a story needs some bitterness and you can tell your heart was in the other one. But this one is good too.. just less real.
Comments from author:
Thank you. And you're right, my heart was more in the other one.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from (Recent Donor)faithfan
I completely agree with you, this is one F-Upped ending.

You must be one blood thirsty son-of-a-btch! First you kill Kennedy, Okay I'll let that slide. She was unattached as Willow's Ex. Having a 2nd soulmate of Willows die would have been too much, but their relationship was over so okay.
If you wanted major tragedy you could have had Buffy lose the baby, but I guess you really only against happiness for Faith. Can't have anything happen to Queen Buffy.
Comments from author:
I didn't mean for it to come out like that.. but okay I can see you're upset. Faith is my favorite character, followed by Willow and then Buffy, and I honestly don't know why I just wrecked her life like that.. in my alternate ending it's all.. fluffier, except for *Queen Buffy*, but I got tired of all the fluff..
As for Kennedy.. I don't really like her.. but I think she still went out with a bang.. sort of.. okay maybe not..

Review of chapter "Chapter Sixteen" from ranlynn
Nice update but if you put that last love scene needs a higher rating than FR15.
Comments from author:
That's why the last chapter is rated FR21, just to be safe =]

Review of chapter "Chapter Fifteen" from MusicalKiller
Again, LOVE the double update.... also, as for the Claire/Willow, I don't think it would work. It actually would probably go like Claire thought.... you know, the blushing and the babbling. =]
