Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from Hecatonchires
Review:
I liked this - it wasn't PWP, it had measured reasons for things.

Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from Gylzgurl
Review:
This was an amazing love scene between Buffy and Faith, one of my top 5 Buffy shippers. And you portray them together so well. And it really made me wish my wife/partner wasn't currently asleep and sick with the flu. Lol. Now to finish reading "Return to Normal"...

Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from TheatricalBarrister
Review:
This was a very nicely written chapter. I think that you succeeded with the emotional impact of the chapter in your sparing use of dialog.

Bravo for introducing Buffy to parkour! I'd never even thought about it before, but it just fits. As soon as I read that, I thought 'Yeah! That's perfect!"

Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from Tempi
Review:
Brilliant work!

I really like the way you portray Buffy and Faith's relationship especially as a contrast to the one between Willow and The First. That the sex scene was hot and steamy certainly didn't hurt in my book. Let's get a repeat performance later in the story! ;-)

I'm looking forward to seeing how the two Faiths will interact with the other characters.

Keep up the good work.

Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from Oblivion
Review:
Just brilliant as always. I love the way you portray Faith and her feelings for Buffy with her depth of devotion. Can't wait for more of this story with hopefully allot more on this relationship! Keep up the good work and enjoy the love of your many many fans :)

Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from RevDorothyL
Review:
Now THIS version feels complete (I didn't realize there was an alternate version when I printed the 'regular' chapter six out last night, and was puzzled at the somewhat abrupt transitions and some missing relationship work in the middle).

Very good work, and I loved finding out how Faith was the one to introduce Buffy to 'parkour' (which I vaguely remember played an exciting part in the 'scenes of coming attractions' chapter you'd posted sometime last year to whet our appetites).

Even apart from the moving insights into Faith (and the delight in seeing what Faith had accomplished on her own and how good she and Buffy could be for each other, even without Faith being a Slayer), I was particularly struck by this bit: "Buffy still looked and acted like she was a part of mainstream civilization. Even her name was a statement. There were no ‘Buffy’s’ in goth-dom."

I'd never put that together, before, but it's very true that Buffy's name isn't just a way of undermining sexual stereotypes, etc., but is also an 'in-your-face' assertion that there's nothing marginal about her OR about the fight against evil: It's Buffy's NORMALITY that was always the sharply pointed end of the T.V. series, and the source of most of its impact. Rather than being shoved off to the edges of our cognitive maps ('here there be monsters'), "Buffy" insists that it's all right HERE, right in the middle of everything we try to convince ourselves is safe and 'apart' from the weird stuff in the world.

Excellent, excellent work!

Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from CPTSkip
Review:
Wow! This chapter was just so freaking Hot! And we all know this is not a Hell dimension because Veronica Mars is a hit show. Great insight to both Buffy's and Faith's characters. I'm so glad both young women had a chance for some happiness since I think bad times are a'comin'. I can't wait for more of your wonderful story.

Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from Archer
Review:
Buffy would find a way to get Faith to Colorado Springs. She just would, regardless of almost any other considerations. Don't write Faith out, she's a great character! I look forward, as always, to the next installment.

Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from eponine
Review:
Guh. Also, YAY!

I was really disappointed when you didn't bring Faith back in "Far Beyond Normal", but this makes up for it and then some. I mean, this makes up for it with SEX. That's just... wow. I think I love you.

Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from VillageOrchid
Review:
An interesting chapter... which could one day be improved by some dialog to flesh out some of the scenes. Otherwise, quite good. Thanks for sharing.
Comments from author:
The intent was to emphasize the emotional aspects of the encounter by framing the chapter around a single line of dialog. Whether it worked the way I intended is subject to debate, but that was the objective.

Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from Tannim
Review:
Wow this was really powerful. Seeing how Faith actually made a life for herself was amazing. She got some normalcy and it worked great for her. Her reasons for life were so real and truly believable. Faith finally connecting with Buffy was great, I can't wait to see what you have in store for them. I'm also glad we got to get a glimpse of what happened to Willow and Tara. Their story was so cute, especially compared to the tragedy that is BTVS Willow's life. As always, keep up the great work!

Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from Mcspender
Review:
Steamy!!!!.

You know, you're describing a very interesting contrast between the First possessed Buffy relationship with Willow and the SGC Buffy and Faith.

See ya!
