Review of story "But the Book said..." from malchance
I hope you still plan to come back to this fic. If you are still looking for ideas, I am partial to Buffy being the evil that wants to kill them. She is on a slippery slope and could easily end up there. I can see her getting someone (Amy, Anya, etc. or Willow if you want to change her character as well) to use magic to try to strip Xander's immortality from him. I can just picture him, in the middle of practice, falling to the ground screaming in agony as he feels like his soul is being torn in half. She would then go after the twins in her jealousy and absolute belief that she is right and every one should obey her demands/wishes. This would also help with giving Faith direction and aid her in taking up the mantle of the Slayer.

Another alternative is to make Kronos the evil that is coming for them. (I am not sure if this would work or not as I am unsure of the Highlander timeline.) Wanting to punish Methos, he goes after his students/children. Maybe the twins are all that remain after his rampage. I could also see him teaming up with demons to achieve his goals.

Whatever you do, please update soon.

Review of story "But the Book said..." from Elmblossom
One thing you could do is NOT replace the WOW factor, and try for some kind of team-up between Illidan and Xander&co. Illidan never struck me as being a moron, and he could possibly figure out / be convinced that the 'power' he's after comes in the form of ALLIES... Xander especially but probably all of them would be willing to help him fight the Legion if they knew about it, I think. And Xander certainly has a lot in common with Illidan as far as an obsessive hatred of demons and a frightening willingness to do anything to kill them goes....

Review of story "But the Book said..." from slayerdragonlover
You've been doing pretty awesome with the character developing and everything. The only "bad" thing is the baddies...well except for the fight with the satyr *grins* that was hilarious.

Anyways I would go with the non-extra-crossover cause to be honest HP baddies aren't that up on the apocalyptic level and Buffy verse has a bunch of able bodied baddies, like Glory or you can just drag in Wolfram & Hart, nothing like evil-soul-sucking lawyers to accommodate your every baddie need, and dragging Angel into the awesome to have his reaction to the Xanman being Immortal and also with the thing with Spike and Delvin, who definitely need to be locked in a closet dense they are.

Though the thing with Greg and Diane seems sorta...strangely forced. And well I kinda want to see more of Greg, especially involved in a relationship that isn't merely on lust and that kinda reminds me of the initial Anya/Xander relationship on the show. Maybe Greg can help Richie get over his issues with Duncan's dark Quickening.

And maybe Methos making an appearance soon that would be awesome.

Anyways keep up the good work.

Review of story "But the Book said..." from Ryutana
I'ma have to say, idea one. I think the Harry Potter Big Bads would be a bit more amusing, and would definitely make for more insanity in fighting. Anyways, great series, keep up the great work, hope to see a new chapter soon!

Review of story "But the Book said..." from DrPepper
My vote? Idea Two: No More Crossover. Or, well, please do anything *except* Harry Potter. Voldemort just doesn't fit the tone of the story, I think. Great fic so far, though.

Review of story "But the Book said..." from Nuphar
I have an idea, this story is obviously set before the hellmouth is closed so you might be able to just use the first evil, you could keep the wow evils just make them team up with the first, but before you do that you might want to go more into Oz/Xander there are so few of them I really want to see the couple develop into a strong relationship, maybe have them go on an actual date, it would be soo cute! if you don't like that idea but can't think of a different one try rewriting it from the beginning (its what I do) go slowly over from the start so you can remember parts that you had planed but forgot about later or just see new directions you could go. But Please Don't give up! You can do this! You write fabulously you just need to take the time and review your plan for this story.

Review of story "But the Book said..." from bliss
Wow...I was really gettin' into that.

Tell me, have you finished it and it's hiding somewhere else? *hopeful grin*

Anyway, this is one of the best crossovers I've read. I do hope if it isn't finished, that it will be soon. I can't wait to find out what happens.

Review of chapter "Chapter 28. In Which Diane Meets Someone" from bliss
Go Miss D!!! I vote with the idea of locking Mr. D and Spike in a room together until they "work" out their "issues". *grin*

Now, for the love of all things holy, please, lock those two in said room and allow them to work out said frustrations!!!!


*sheepish smile*

Sorry. Going back to reading now. *waves*

Review of chapter "In Which is a Quiet Interlude" from bliss
I was wondering what would happen when Xander experienced a Quickening. I like the fact it brought out the Hyena; I wish Joss would have kept the hyena around in the series, but no crying over spilled milk.

I am glad it's not a Spike/Xander romantic pairing...those drove me nuts. Oz is better, not just for the whole inner beast thing, but also because of their personalities. I'm kinda glad you brought them together.

Funny thing is, I used to not be into slash that much...then I started reading some awesome fan fiction. Low and behold, it's beginning to grow on me. *shy grin*

Well, moving on to read more. Again, brilliant story!! I'm lovin' every chapter!!

Review of chapter "In Which the Xandman and the Greggo go out" from bliss
I am lovin' this story so far!! Gotta say, bravo with the Buffy-bashing. It's funny, I liked watching Buffy, but I watched it for the other characters, not for the self-centered, spoiled, valley girl, pain in the ass. Wow, I don't have contempt for her at all, do I?? *chuckle*

Anyway, fabulous job with the characters. Excellent work with Xander, bringing him out from under everyone's shadow. And I like the friendship between Xander and Spike also. So far, I appreciate the non-slash relationship between them, and hoping *fingers crossed* it stays that way, but if not I'll deal. Fabulous relationship between Xander and Gregg also. I always thought those two would hit it off as buddies.

Excellent job on Oz. I've always liked that character.

"Xander nodded. “You should hear him and The Broody One having a conversation. It goes something like, “hi” “hi” “alright?” a nod “you” another nod “kay” “later” “bye”. And that’s it, they’re both perfectly happy.”"

I cracked up at that. Brilliant!!

Anyway, looking forward to reading the rest of the story. Just thought I'd take a break here and tell you this is fabulous!!

Review of story "But the Book said..." from greysh
Nice fic! I like Xander and his teacher :-)
As a bad guy, I would take an old evil from the buffyverse and not voldemort.
I just can't see voldemort or DE strong enof against an immortal.
A special made/freed demon will be as strong as you need.

Good luck in your writing!

Review of story "But the Book said..." from souldriven
Well, I'm not one of your crazy deicated patient reviewers but why not use Glory? I mean you've mention the initiative is gone but ther's no dawn or rise in the insane. Besides given Glory's nature of needing to feed on sanity to stay sane I imagine 2 four thousand year old immortals with who knows how many quickenings in thier skulls would be an all you could eat buffet for her. They probably last a lot longer than a normal meal for Glory anyways. Great story btw. At first I thought it was Spike/Xander with the friendship thing but you pretty much established the just firends early enough to clear my confusion. Love the story and good luck!

Review of story "But the Book said..." from charms
I am very sorry you contracted the curse of writers everywhere: the dreaded 'writers block'. I really have enjoyed re-reading this story and was looking forward to further updates. I skimmed through other reviews before starting this one and think that creatures/demons/whatever from the btvs-verse or, as mentioned in another review, some from Ancient Rome or Greece would be easily incorporated into your story with minimal changes. It would involve name changes obviously, along with a few other items, but the fight scene with satyr could stay, which would be one less change needing to be made. If you really wanted to add in other known characters, my best guess would be Supernatural would probably be the best fit.

Anyway, I wish you luck on your future writings and look forward to seeing more from you. Happy writing!
