Review of chapter "Torture's Sad Exchange" from FiveOfFive
*Sqeeeeeeeeee* I can't believe it's taken me so long to start on this! After finishing the first part of this tale I was all gung-ho to get started on the next installment, but those pink elephants that had popped up after I finished Burning Memories didn't leave after a good nights sleep; so I had to try and talk them into going elsewhere, but to no avail. It seams they were on a mission from God and believed I could take them to the Coo-Coo-Ca-Choo factory on planet Nargoz-7; and, well to make a long story short, I only just finished steam cleaning the slime out of the carpets....

I have GOT to stop writing reviews in the wee hours of the morning! What all of... that, was leading up to is basically me saying that you're a god. You know exactly when to banter, and when to have someone give a rare vulnerable smile; when to crank up the tension, sexual or other, and when to put in a needed laugh. The most amazing example of your brilliance was at the end of story, when Buffy's hurt and Dean finally drops the Winchester facade and acts like the good man we all believe is lurking inside him just waiting to bust out. But you never take it too far, he's still Dean, so you add the line that had me cracking-up when I felt like crying: "You're not going to be a girl about this are you?"

Long review, but I had a lot of praise to give... and after all that you had better keep writing missy *stern finger waggle*

I can't believe it's taken me this long to reply. I was floored by your review and tried to respond a few times but couldn't ge the words to express how wonderfully happy, giddy, ecstatic, over the moon, overjoyed, humbled, shocked, floored, blown over... etc I was.

I still don't know how to put the words together. Thank you. I'm so honored that you feel this way about this piece/series. Means so much, especially since my muse was stubborn as a mule in finishing this piece.

That scene is what caused the delay. Trying to get Dean's reactions to still be Dean while showing a small snippet of that amazing guy he can be. At the same time I didn't want the scene to play out cheesy or for readers to wonder WTH happened for Dean to go from teasing and cutting down Buffy to being Mr. Prince in 3.5 seconds. *grins*

Thank you so much for reading and then for leaving this *squee* inducing review. You've truly made my month!

Review of chapter "Torture's Sad Exchange" from KnightOwl
I liked this installment. I have to say that I feel really bad for Buffy. She is so alone and Dean being mean to her all the time can't help. I could see her taking the knife for Dean and hiding it from him to take care of it herself. She can be pretty independent, especially when someone isn't as nice to her as they could be. I can also see Dean not trusting her, but I hope he quits being such an ass to her soon.
Comments from author:
Glad you enjoyed and I wanted you to feel empathy for our Buffy. Sorta need to set the stage for what is to come. Don't worry, Dean won't be an ass for the whole series. Things will be arising that will cause his attitude to change direction and her taking the hit for him will earn her a few points in his book. *grins*

Thanks so much for reading and leaving me feedback! Means a great deal!
