Review of chapter "Chapter One" from BuffyKaibaHunt
Brilliant! :) (My name's Abigail, too. I wonder what will happen to my namesake...)

Awesome story! :) I like it.

Just an FYI... since you asked about Abigail.

She's a very careful (and powerful) vamp, who never set foot in Sunnydale. At present she's living in London according to my notes.... she has a very healthy respect for Slayers and, for a different reason, has parts of Angel's "soul curse" effects; she's not a white hat but tries to stay neutral. Any rep she has in the vampiric community is from being a source of information to anyone who really wants to go after Slayers (although she will always lace it, like here, with strong warnings that it's a horrible idea.... but if you insist...). She's also among the (physically) strongest vamps ever... so pissing her off, not a good idea. Oh, and Angelus is her sire; the romance between them was pre-Drusilla and is long since dead; they're still friends, but no more than that.

Abigail and Angelus's kill (the one mentioned here) was in the 1780's and if Spike knew the full details on it, he'd say it was entirely Angelus's kill. Abigail hasn't been near any Slayers after that, on purpose. (It was Libby from my Lady Liberty stories.)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from KailBlade
Your making Angelus WAY to noble. He was never a gentleman, alive or undead, soul or no soul. Cannon suggests that he was the BAD kind of womaniser while living.

Interesting idea though. It would be funny to see 'A guide to Slaying the Slayer, by William the Bloody'
Comments from author:
Considering he's among vampires (and them specifically), I'm mostly basing this on his relationship with Spike and Dru, while he was evil. And Abigail... he seduced her. He's her sire. And she could kick his butt and he knows it.

The "perfect gentleman" line was Spike jumping to conclusions. He's completely wrong - as I believe both Darla and Angelus mentioned, and Abigail played along with, he admitted to sleeping with the Slayer prior to killing her, and KNOWING she was drunk off her ass.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from amusewithaview
Huh, I haven't read your other story so this was a bit confusing. Funny though, especially how they killed the Slayer. The characterizations were a bit.. erm, TAME. I can't see them having a civilized discussion about the death of a Slayer without someone attacking someone else, vamps are very physical in the show, especially the younger ones.

Sorry about that - you know how it is, it's tough to step outside your viewpoint and see if someone else would get it...

As far as the tameness, I'm not good at Drusilla (hence her quietness), and there's really not much reason for them to be at each other. Darla, Angel and Spike got along just fine while all three were evil, and actually the reincarnate Darla got along OK with everyone too.

Anyway... yeah, Abigail got the Slayer drunk, and then Angelus slept with and killed her. Though there's more to the story than that (but I haven't yet written the part of the epic where this actually happens, so the readers will just have to wonder).
