Review of chapter "Chapter One" from AliceinWonderbra
Hey there, I just read this on the recommendation of a friend and found it to be really excellent. It's fluffy without being nauseating and I love good, but not really all the way good, Faith. :) You have their voices down really well and I laughed out loud at Willow's cute bumper stickers. Very entertaining, and I can't wait to go back and read more of your stuff!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from laoshi
I like the premise of a day in the life. While it's fun to see Buffy and Faith do the world saving against impossible odds thing, its also nice to see them just being a couple. This fic mixes serious issues with light-hearted humour seamlessly. Buffy's popcorn hypnosis was downright hilarious. The exploration of the worth of a human life was very well handled, especially when it was tied in to the bigoted family. It's all very well and good to say you shouldn't sacrifice one human life for another even if that life is a Davinci, or Gandhi or Buffy Summers. But what if don't like the person you're sacrificing. What if there isn't anything about them that makes them a worthwhile human being. The Faithverse seems to operate on the principle that all slayers get stronger once they're called until they reach some kind of plateau, of course the rules are different for Faith so it adds an interesting dynamic to the relationship that Faith is physically stronger than Buffy. I really enjoy it when Faith gets all chivalrous. The resolution was spot on and Faith's putdown was perfect their just isn't anything anyone could say to that. It's a ingenious way of making us root for her despite the evilness. The last lines are a great Parthian shot. Here's to hot evil chicks winning in the end!

I imagine all of us would (if put in a situation where it was unavoidable) choose to sacrifice a stranger instead of a loved one, an old person instead of a child, an enemy instead of a friend....
It would be horrible, and not especially fair or noble, but that's the way (most) humans behave. Faith just happens to have a 'tribe' of only two people: herself and Buffy. Everyone, absolutely EVERYONE else, is expendable. And maybe that's a form of evil, but happily, in this case, it's tempered and controlled by her overwhelming love for Buffy. She won't do anything to risk losing Buffy, except, of course, it the alternative were Buffy dying, in which case all bets are off.

I don't think it's a spoiler to say yep, that's about it. They all start at a certain point (which varies by individual), gain strength fairly rapidly for a year or two (again, it varies), then it tapers off until they reach their maximum potential at some point between 18 and 21. Certainly, when the potentials are activated at the end of Season Seven, both Buffy and Faith are MUCH more powerful than they are.
Given all that Buffy achieves (leaving aside all the support from the others), I place her as one of the strongest Slayers who's ever lived; possibly THE most powerful, although the Primal Slayer was probably her equal or superior.
Faith, given time to grow into her full power (going to get around to writing it eventually) will be even stronger.
After age 21, though, the SlayerPower (^_^) begins to take a toll, as the girl's body shows the effects of all that supercharging and abuse. Starting gradually, but then going faster and faster, she loses her strength and other abilities, until she basically crashes and burns, sometime around or soon after age 25.
Of course, anything can happen in a magical 'verse, and like you said, the rules are different for Faith, anyway.
(Heh, heh, heh.)

Lol! I loved your story. Your Faith was really just too cool. But then all Faiths in all time-lines are automatically cool. It is a simple fact of the multiverse. Lol!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from RavenMorbisk
I have a funny little feeling I've read this before but I can't remember where or when..
Doesn't matter, I love it ^^
Comments from author:
Yep, it's been on my site for awhile, and I posted it to BuffynFaith a couple of weeks ago.
Just decided to throw it on here to see if people liked it.
I think this is a pretty nifty Faith, because she's still her own person, with some slightly scary ideas in her head, even though she's dialed it down a few notches for Buffy's sake.
Give me a few minutes and I'll post a chapter of something new and different I've been working on.
(Though I'm a bit nervous that it'll squick a few people)
