Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from RedCalypso
Review:
I just found this story and I love it so far. Heheh, I like the "as you wish" line. It's from the Princess Bride, right?

Review:
Nice story. It just that I really *really* dislike sad endings. That said the letter was a nice touch

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from (Past Donor)Peaslums
Review:
While the story was really interesting, I really had problems continuing taking it seriously after the first few chapters. The fact that the girl Xander loved allowed him to be shot at least 15 times (say 5 seconds worth of shooting if you're good) and did absolutely nothing to help him or stop the shooting is a major problem for me. To love someone who let you get killed (even if it didn't work) is unbelievable at best. I really can't think of anything that says "I don't love or care about you" that multiple gunshot wounds. The fact that he was unharmed is irrelevant. If it had been a couple shots, fine, she didn't react, but to let it go on makes the relationship completely unbelievable. Not to mention the fact that all Xander's response was to yell.

If I could get past the bias that first chapter started me out with, I'm sure the story would have seemed better, but to me, the scene could've been better had Riley not been there and they threw him out or had Giles stopped him after a shot or two. It seems even to me that I'm nitpicking, but that beginning to a relationship rather killed the mood.

Overall, great idea with a well thought out plot, but I keep going back to that scene. On the plus side, the sequel is rather good so far and I do hope to see more of it. Hopefully my critique of that part wasn't too harsh, but I just don't see how any love, no matter how deep can survive attempted murder or the support of it added on top of the Angel hypocrisy.

Review of chapter "Chapter Five" from lillyb
Review:
i like this story a lot as i am a big old freak for Xander. there are some errors but over all i think the story is very good. i teach special ed. kids so I'm sort of desensitized to errors in writing i notice them but they don't really bug me. there was one thing though that made me laugh,

("so he unsheathed the bastard sword he had hidden under his jacket and spent the next few minutes pretending to be Juan Sanchez Villa-Lobos Ramirez".)

i assume you meant blessed and not "bastard" unless the sword is in fact the love child of two other swords. lol

Thanks for the feedback, it's appreciated.

A bastard sword really is a type of sword, sometimes known as a hand and a half sword as it is a little bigger than most singe-handed swords, but smaller than most double-handed swords.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from MistieMossflower
Review:
This was a great story, but I came across several spelling errors and you tended to change tenses in the middle of the sentences and paragraphs.
Comments from author:
Thank you for the feedback, it's appreciated.

As far as the errors are concerned, this story wasn't beta'd by anyone, and while I did my best to spot as much as was possible, I'm afraid that a few slipped through the cracks. I hope that it didn't detract from the story too much.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from arkeus
Review:
Hum...A few nitpick first:

Somewhere at the beginning you say "he loved the site" or something like it, when i think you meant "he loved the sight".

Later on, you say "he trusted buffy and other implicitly" while i think it should either be "Buffy and Willow" or "Buffy and the others".

Hoping you don't have Xander be *too* strong (like able to kill adam by himself) and that you don't forget about willow :p

While i normally have compulsive X pushing when it comes to fic where Xander is different than usual because it comports bashing of other characters where we feel the author gleefuly do it, the bit about Awesome!Buffy before that is an hint that it could be quite different.

Let's See! :-))

I apologise for the errors; I don't use a beta, and sometimes I miss the odd word here and there. I hope that they didn't detract too much from the story.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from DevJannz
Review:
This has always been one of my favorite "Xander with powers" stories because you kept him being Xander and did not turn him into some homicidal, foul-mouthed know-it-all that treats the other Scoobs like they are less than scum like some authors do. I am all for Xander being upset and mad at them but to treat them like they have been enemies for years is too far. Thanks for not doing that in your story.

Great work.

I know that I don't always succeed in this in my stories, but I try not to have character bashing for the sake of it, and try to explain the reasons behind it. A lot of those stories you talked about don't always show that, which makes the treatment of the other characters seem more severe than perhaps they intended. At least that's how I see it, but I might be an optimist.

Review of chapter "Chapter Ten" from VillageOrchid
Review:
A two-hankie chapter... would have been three and a-half but I know you posted a sequel. One typo: through he defences -- probably means through her defences.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the feedback, it's appreciated.

I knew I should have waited a few days before I started posting the sequel! :)

Thanks for pointing out the typo, I'll get that sorted.

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from VillageOrchid
Review:
well, based on the number of generations and life span that gives Xander about 3,000 to 4,000 years of family spell-casting... and maybe even genetions before that without magic. Very interesting. I guess to find a pureblood mate, they might look for all of the homes that their ancestors knew to find one that isn't closely related to themselves. Are you planning on writing some original fic with this sort of magic an deamon?
Comments from author:
Thanks for the feedback, it's appreciated.

I hadn't considered writing an original story based on this species, but now that the thought is in my head I shall have to see what develops.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from mithrilandtj
Review:
I love this story!

Of course I just spent several hours reading it.
I like the "Xander is a secret demon' and the fact that he's always known.
Bummer that he & Buffy hadn't been able to have some 'bedroom fun' beforehand though.

Your 'incantations' were... interesting.

If you were just going to type them BACKWARDS couldn't you have used magical-type words rather than movie titles & random phrases? (A Fistful of Dollars, The Good The Bad And The Ugly)

cute

I'm waiting until I've had sleep to start reading the sequal. It's 4 am. My pillow is calling.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the feedback, it's appreciated.

When I originally wrote the story, I thought it would be funny to use film titles and other phrases as spells. When I went over it again, I considered changing them to something a bit more authentic, but decided to keep them as they were.

A lot of my stories have similar things, where I've turned a person's name into the name for a demon or a spell, I guess it's kinda my thing.
