Review of chapter "Chapter One" from EstacadoShade
This pretty good and I really enjoy these hunter community against the Council stories but one thing I'm sure of is that while Willow could stop bullets she can't raise the dead(anymore) and she cant be everywhere at once. A sniper bullet to the back of the head from 300 feet back will most definitely put a slayer down real good and permanent like. In a war between the Council and Slayers the girls would get butchered.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from GardenGnome
I actually really like this. Given how different to two communities are, Buffy-verse and hunters, I actually find it pretty plausible that a case of huge misunderstanding could lead to accidental deaths. Neither hunters nor Scoobies are very open to discussion, they are set in their ways and each convinced they are right. Buffy has done her share of reckless things and isn't exactly virginal white when it comes to morality. I like Ellen here, she seems like she's just to damn angry to care if their human or not. Plus, the nature of crossovers are always about one-up-manship anyways.
Comments from author:
Thank you. I love Supernatural crossovers and a lot of them are really good but too many just assume that Buffy's group and the other group are gonna get along. For one thing, as you pointed out, they are both extremely stubborn and see their way as right and everybody else as wrong. Also, given the nature of the Council, even Buffy's group, you'd be hard pressed to find a hunter who isn't at least uneasy about them. I mean, they entrust the world's safety in the hands of someone who is part demon. If you've met Gordan, you know what I mean. Ellen is pretty damn scary, when she's angry to. She's like the mother of the hunter's group-- she's Joyce and Buffy put together in one and lemme tell you, thats one powerful bitch. So yeah, this wasn't meant to go so long. Heh, but thank you for the review!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Difdi
The problem with crossovers, is some worlds don't fit together well. In Supernatural, magic is inherently demonic and all demons are evil. So when the Hunters take no prisoners and shoot first and forget the questions, it's not exactly *good*, but it's not evil either. But in BtVS, magic is essentially a neutral force, and demons run the gamut from guys like Clem to Mayor Wilkins. But put a Hunter in the BtVS setting though, and they are reckless and misguided at best, with most being actually evil. Most Hunters would see a Slayer as just another demon to be exterminated in whatever method is most expedient; They wouldn't feel any need to see if the Slayer was evil, her mere existence would be sufficient cause for them to try to kill her.
Anyone helping a Slayer? Traitors to humanity, to be exterminated along with the 'demon'. Given that Slayers and Watchers tend to avoid harming humans, I find it implausible that anyone working for the Council would kill two Hunters unless said Hunters were trying to kill a Slayer and/or her support team. Hunters are not known for listening to any pleas for mercy or reason by their prey, nor do they give up and go away, so killing them would likely be the only viable option. The only mistake the Watcher's Council made in dealing with Ellen and the rest, was in trying to reason with them, rather than simply burning the place down with the Hunters inside.

Wow, thanks for the long review. I agree with most of what your saying. So, does this mean that you like it or dislike it?

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from JasonBarnett
Is Willow there? Cause I imagine she could stop them cold.
If she isn't is it really wise to declare war on the Council like this?
Comments from author:
Yes, well its up to you if Willow was there or not. I didn't name all of them for a reason. At any rate, no, it is not wise to declare war on the Council, but then, it wasn't wise for the Council to kill two boys without checking them out fully.
