Review of chapter "Moving On" from Letomo
Review:
A nice story. I enjoyed it very much.

As I always am, I would be curious what happens next, but it also ends this story nicely, so a sequel isn't needed.

Review of chapter "Moving On" from (Recent Donor)DeepBlueJoy
Review:
Wesley: Who did you lose?

---
I wish I could find some articulate way to say how powerful this is, but you probably know that. Your voicings are amazing, and your fluency in the language of grief is complete. I find myself asking that question as I read this and your other stories.

Thank you for sharing so eloquently, the heartbreak that is loss. If you did, indeed, lose someone, I'm sorry for your loss.

Comments from author:
Thank you. I really appreciate your comments; they're making me smile, today.

Everyone loses someone, sooner or later; but yes, there have been three particularly close and heartbreaking deaths among my family and friends, none of which were natural. I usually prefer to be a little more upbeat in my writing, but when I do choose to go in that direction in one of my stories, it helps that I am able to use that to touch other people.

Review of chapter "Moving On" from Angelfirenze
Review:
I'm honestly speechless here. This was creepy, amusing, devastating (you killed Angel! *wails*), and touching all at the same time.

Okay, I guess I'm not THAT speechless, then. *breathes slowly and feels tears*

Review:
This is probably one of the most impressive and surprising stories that I've read in a long time.

Review of chapter "Moving On" from RevDorothyL
Review:
I love Illyria's unique way of pursuing this ritual, with shades of the rite of confession in her language and a conscious nod to wedding anniversaries in the objects she accumulates, as she makes for Wesley a portable anchor to the world of the living.

However, the math doesn't quite work out right for this line and its follow-up: '"It has been three thousand, one hundred and seventy six days since your passing,"' -- since that would imply nearly 8.7 years has passed, instead of the five years specified by Illyria in the next line (which would be more in the neighborhood of 1,826 days, roughly).

Otherwise, I love it, for all its dark ambiguities and moments of light and joy.
Comments from author:
You're right about the math, I just did it on a calculator. Which I thought I'd done the first time around. *facepalm* I'll just go fix that now....

Otherwise, thanks for the review; that was kind of the effect I was going for. =)

Review:
Nice twist there at the end - I didn't even note the significance of the items eiher until Spike called it into question.

Review of chapter "Moving On" from (Current Donor)Shieldage
Review:
Awesome. Ghosts are some of the most useful beings in Whedon's world.

Not only is this really sweet, Illyria's gained herself a tactical advantage :)

Review of chapter "Moving On" from PunkCanuck
Review:
Very heartwarming.

I guess Illyria was intentionally trying to get Wesley's spirit stuck to the box. I guess Illyria is all about the long term planning.

Excellent. I really enjoyed it.
