Review of chapter "Do You Believe in Magic?" from Obsidian
Great Story. It was a different take on things. Only problem I had was there was like no action. Nothing really happened other than the regular stuff.

Okay, that was a very fun read. Hope you'll eventually get around to more, but seeing as it's been 5 years since the last chapter I won't hold out. Anyways, on to check other works, but wanted to you know people still appreciate the work you did on this one.

Review of chapter "Do You Believe in Magic?" from Godogma
Yet another story that began well and was developing nicely. However, toward the end you fell into a creative trap that you shouldn't have - you began focusing too much on following canon. Causality is something you have to pay attention to as an author, every change has repercussions and authors have to plan how things effect each other in the long run instead of just tossing things out there and then trying to have the characters react the same ways to the stimulus they did in canon.
You see it entirely too often in bad fanfiction and its my greatest peeve. The story started out great and then as it expanded it got better, however towards the end it turned into complete rot. The idea that Ares wouldn't train his avatar to be capable in combat is not only laughable its ludicrous.

Review of chapter "Do You Believe in Magic?" from AlecMcDowell
Very interesting story; liked seeing young Xander with the big bad gods haha. And big points for including Bedknobs and Broomsticks! Good movie. Too bad you never finished this; can't help thinking it'd be very interesting to see what Tara would have thought of Xander's marked aura when she came around...

Review of chapter "Do You Believe in Magic?" from Tanydwr
Just discovered this. Great story, with some nice interaction with the gods.
On a side note, when you mentioned Nike, I believe she was originally the Greek goddess of victory. At the very least, that's what the word Nike means, and it's the origin of the name Nicholas (Nikolos and meaning something like 'victory of the people' or 'victorious leader').
What I think will be really interesting is what happens when a) Xander's possessed by the hyena primal, and b) what happens when he brings Buffy back via CPR. The gods will definitely have interesting reactions there.
I like the change to Xander's family life. Janey's death works well as a potentially canon catalyst for their downward decline - Jess becoming depressed and Tony drinking to cope with her depression. But Xander's interactions with the gods and their help helped him get his mother to counselling and in turn reign in his father, so it's good.
I love the dog-tags weapon, that's cool.
Also... have you considered the gods looking at the name 'Alexander' for their wakener? It's Greek, means 'protector of mankind'... Maybe Xander's name partially explains why it was he who wakened them, because, after all, has he not provided mankind with a new layer of protection?
Will this have the immortal Hercules wandering around as well or not? Oh, and I liked the Xena bedtime stories, and Zeus being into Playboy...
Please, this story deserves another chapter.

Review of chapter "Do You Believe in Magic?" from spring
This is a wonderful story so far. I love the fact that in this story Xander's parents actually care about him ^_^ I love the rules that both the Gods and Xander's parents put in place for Xander. I have to tell you that I can't think of everything that I want to tell you that I love about this wonderful story. My single complaint is that you haven't finished this! Please please please update this extremely wonderful story again.^_^ Did I mention that I love this story?
