Review of chapter "Chapter One" from loretta
this is a great story! i hope you write more. i want to see the universe xander is in now as well as the reactions to his leaving. how does dawn react? how long does it take for the others to realize that xander is missing? how will his first visit back home work out?
Comments from author:
I know some things about the universe Xander went to, but my muse hasn't told me much about how things developed.

I'm waiting to see what inspiration she might send my way as far as this concept is concerned.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from NuitTombee
I usually come back to this every so often.

As always, it's a great read.

Hope you're muse is up for more of this some time in the future.

Comments from author:
I'd like to do more on this, but my muse has been ignoring this one, too. ;-(

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from trongod
You and your Muse really need to work up some more chapters for this; it is freaking outstanding!! The whole alternate reality Xander is transferring to; the letters he left behind - and you HAVE to believe that Dawn will be both relieved that Xander has a new focus in life and very worried that he's gone incommunicado so suddenly. it is my belief that she would sit on the other letters - after reading them, thereby getting even more concerned - while researching where he could be.

She's a hacker of no little skill from canon, so she would quickly discover all the things he's done that really point to a no return plan on his part. Depending upon the time frame, the energies needed to displace Janna and Xander to the new Reality should be fairly easy to trace but difficult to narrow down to a specific reality - but that would prove to her he really is gone forever. Which in turn leads to a major eruption against /everyone/ - Faith may get out of it due to her screwing Wood (Oedipus indeed; wonder when Faith figures that one out?) - but the rest of the crew /are/ going to pay.

But I really can NOT see either Willow or Buffy really caring. They wanted him gone; now he is.
Comments from author:
Glad you enjoyed the story.

As far as an sequels are concerned, my muse hasn't deigned to inspire me with anything more than a few scattered scenes, which make some sense to me but would only make anyone reading them go "HUH?" ;-(

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from mountainelements
Great setup! I like the descriptions of Buffy and Willow and how Xander admits that he made the situation worse. I had to look up "boondoggle", but that seems to fit too. It's ironic that they kick out Xander so that he can recuperate and then proceed to twist their work into giving themselves a way to recuperate. I'll put this on my Tracked stories so that I'll hopefully be alerted if there's a sequel, but I admit that I have no idea what Shadoworld is about.
Comments from author:
Thanks, glad you enjoyed the story.

Not sure when I'm going to be updating, since my muse appears to be ignoring this one now.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from deamon
I like this story and was hopin you might write a sequel. Like what happens when he sees his friends again or something. Like is he married? How was the battle? Whats he been doing? how would his friends react to seeing him again? How would he react to them?
Comments from author:
I have some general ideas about how I'll proceed with the sequel if I can ever get my muse to focus on one. It's just a matter of getting her to do that.

When that's gonna happened I have no idea. ;-(

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from leader
Hey, I was just re-reading it and I noticed something. Alternate Xander is called Lord Calendar, but you said Alt-Jenny was not his wife. I don't think she adopted him, so what does that mean? Once again, this is awsome and I hope you continue it.
Comments from author:
Well, I really can't comment very much on that right now, since that whole situation will be addressed once I can get my muse to focus her attention on the hoped-for sequel to this story. I know what I want to write, so it's just a matter of getting her to pay attention and getting the words flowing.

In any event, I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from leader
I gotta say I love the beginning you have here. I laughed out loud at Xander's descriptions of Andrew, Buffy, and Willow. I also found myself agreeing with them. I was impressed you had Xander admit he was at fault too, it seems like that is rare these days. I really liked that he left everything to Dawn, and that Buffy and Willow would only be told about him after they asked. This idea intrigues me, I wonder who he will meet in this alter universe. You said that Jenny was not, currently at least, involved with alter-Xander, but it is clear that they were close. It makes me wonder if they use to date, and makes me hope that they will hook up. As always you have done a great job. I hope you continue this soon!
P.S. You are going to finish Dark Side of Love aren't you? It was my favorite of your stories.
Comments from author:
No one involved was completely blameless as far as the Scooby situation goes, and something Xander has almost always been is truthful, at least to himself.

I've got the follow-up story partially plotted out, but have no idea when I'll be writing and/or posting it.

And yes, I will be finishing Dark Side of Love. Just don't know exactly when, though.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Infinix
Nicely done and while it says The End and it could even be ended there quite easily a sequel would be nice showing how Xander copes with(if I am reading it right) being married to Jenny and everything else.
Comments from author:
Well, I definitely will be following this up - just don't know when, exactly.

And Jenny is definitely NOT Xander's (or Alexander's) wife or girl friend. That's all I can say at this point in time. ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from neverwill
What's the saying, "Living well is the best revenge"? I wish Willow & Buffy all the misery of losing their one TRUE friend. I love how he didn't bother leaving messages for anyone else. He'd obviously had more than enough of their condescending attitudes and decided that would be the last time they threw his friendship away.
Comments from author:
Well, based on what we saw during the last season, Dawn, Buffy and Willow were the only people Xander was close to, aside from Anya.

I don't think Xander would have spit on Spike if he were on fire, and with the way Giles was mostly not there at all, I don't think that he and Xander made much of an effort to keep up their friendship. And as far as Faith is concerned, I don't think that she and Xander exchanged a dozen words on-screen once she arrived in town, I really can't see them becoming pen-pals. The only thing Xander and Robin had in common was that they both despised Spike, so he's out, too.

So, he left messages for the only people he cared about.
