Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)DeepBlueJoy
Sweet! Really enjoyed this... the tone is so very right and it is both touching and funny.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from CrimsonEmotions
Excellent job. The only thing Xander could have also brought up is discussing how just about every woman came after him to kill him in S2, even if it was his own fault.

Well, Axe wealding Willow was alluded to briefly :)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from ShyBob
Faith/Xander redemptionista...gotta love it. I felt it was just a little short on the build-up to forgiveness. I think only Willow gets off that easily. Good voice for both the characters and nice flow to the piece.

You make a good point and I have spent a bit of time thinking about why the story, the way it is, feel natural to me. And this is what I came up with.

It's all about timing and opportunity.

Enough time has passed for Xander that the events of 'Consequences' have healed to the point where it has become something that 'Happened back in the day'.

Also this would be Faith's first chance to apologize for what happened. That would count for allot.

Well, any way, those are my thoughts on the matter (shrug)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)Sulien
That was nice and worthy of Joss himself, and I'm not even overly fond of Xander. Very nicely done, thank you for sharing it!

P.S. It does make me wonder, though. That speech of Xander's is so heartfelt and true, but he has yet to apologize to Buffy for betraying her at the end of season 2, or even admit to doing so. I'd write that one myself, if I could write my way out of wet tissue paper.
Comments from author:
Weeellll the reason I haven't done any stories based on that (and I can't speak for anyone else) is that I honestly do not believe that either Buffy, or Xander were emotionally mature enough to survive the conversation in season three (when it would have been timely) and that after that it would have only opened up old wounds and served no real purpose.

Maybe not the best of reasons, but that's why I haven't

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from amusewithaview
This was incredibly sweet and triple kudos to you for putting into words what I'm sure every semi-Xanfan has felt at one point or another. A lot gets assumed in the Buffyverse, and you know what they say about assume...

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from ShayneT
I liked this. It was sweet, yet with a point. Why is Faith any different than any of the others? It's nice to see Xander as a reasonable person for once.

Excellent stuff. I'm going to go bug more people to come review you because your low review count is just off. Your writing is waaaay better than mine; you should get more appreciation.
