Review of chapter "Chapter One" from trongod
Review:
Hey, Bossman, was cycling through your stories, and re reading this one really and truly makes me want to bribe your Muses into inspiring more!! Would love to see how Snake deals with the Reformed Council and what has happened to each of them during Snake's reformation...

'Cause I really can't see the Reformeds changing their attitudes even after the bodies start to pile up from gunshot wounds unless forced to somehow, and even then, the idiots - yes, Buffy, Angel, Dawn, Spike, Giles, Willow, I /am/ looking square at all of you! - would never let on anyone tried to change things before then. Nor would they even realize Xander disappeared until several months had passed... if then...
Comments from author:
Well, the prequel to this story is posted here, and it's called 'Why Burn Bridges, When You Can Nuke Them?' That will explain how things go to this point. Whether I'll post a follow-up is up to my muse, and she hasn't indicated anything one way or another.

Let me know what you think about the prequel, please.

Review:
...! That's it?!? No more? Ok, That was fun. More please?
Comments from author:
Well, that's all I have planned at the moment. My muse's attention has been distracted by a couple other stories, but I expect to get back to this eventually. No idea when, though.

Thanks for reading and commenting.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from ghostwhowalks
Review:
Xander as Snake? That makes a lot of sense to me for some reason.

Good work, as usual.

Thank you.

Comments from author:
Thanks. Once I read 'Call Me...', I thought that Xander as Snake was a very appropriate concept.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Recent Donor)drdeth
Review:
Great story, I think it would make a great series.
Comments from author:
Thanks you. I'll probably be following this up with a number of short stories, rather than a single long one.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from PEBKAC
Review:
Thank You!!!

Finally, someone brings about an effective means of dealing with the death eaters. I can not stress enough how irritated I get in all the stories/movies where they catch the bad guy, put him in jail, he escapes, causes havoc, and repeat cycle. Just end it, and move on to the next enemy. Also, I agree with the others, X as Snake, should work. Will have to read the story you linked.
Comments from author:
You're welcome. Once someone shows that they're merely repeating an established pattern of terrorism, assault and murder, I see no reason to allow them an opportunity to hurt more people. Anyone wearing the Dark Mark has declared their allegiance, and an appropriate response is required.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)dogbertcarroll
Review:
Brilliant!

And a great lead on another story.

It's a good day!
Comments from author:
Thanks. And yes, 'Call Me' is an excellent character study of Xander after 'Chosen.'

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from LordCorwin
Review:
Yeah, I could see Xander as Snake ... right attitude, the looks, did I mention - the attitude. Nicely done Mr Wizard. I could also see very distinct possibilities for this tory to continue .. oh my....
Comments from author:
Thanks. I'll probably be following up on this in the future - just no idea when at the moment.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Bluejello
Review:
I'll admit, I really have no idea who this "Snake" character is. But, from what I got out of the story, I like what you did with him and Xander. Still not too sure about the Hermione/Willow, but maybe that's just because I hadn't seen that ship before.
Overall, loved it.
Comments from author:
Snake Plissken is the main character from John Carpenter's 'Escape From New York' and 'Escape From L.A.' movies and is an extremely 'not-really-very-nice' person when it comes to people who piss him off. ;-) Check out the movies -they're lots of fun.

And the Willow/Hermione bit was just a throwaway plot point used mostly because I was trying to mislead the reader into initially thinking that Willow was Ginny Weasley.

Thanks for commenting.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Elric
Review:
I love Snake he is one of my all time movie heros. To make him also Xander now that Rocks man.

I wonder how the scoobys are going to react to xanders way of anyone getting in my way dies thought process.
Comments from author:
First off, glad you enjoyed the story.

As far as Xander's way of handling Death Eaters is concerned, while the girls might initially be somewhat upset, once they see exactly how the DE's behave and what they do to their victims, I think that they might be a lot more understanding of his methods. And I also think that the couple years they've been separated have allowed Buffy and Willow especially to see that there are shades of grey in the spectrum of morality - absolutely nothing is black and white.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Vld
Review:
Lol! How much did you mesh the timelines? Because if you didn't tinker with their ages as well, that means Willow is about 29 years old, while Hermione is about to turn 15 or 16, which... would make her jailbait for Willow.
Otherwise, quite cool.
Comments from author:
Glad you enjoyed it, buddy.

I figure that Willow is about twenty-four or twenty-five, and Hermione is about sixteen, which puts them closer together in age than Angel and Buffy were when they were getting hot and heavy, and which is something that a lot of people seemed to think was okay. I also figured the two of them are geniuses and would probably be spending a lot of time together, and might eventually end up being attracted to each other. Since sixteen is the age of consent in Great Britain, that makes everything legal, although it's not really something I would actually want to see happen.
