Review of chapter "Chapter One" from SongBirdie
Wow. This story is intense! I can see Giles doing this, doing it to save the world. He did it to Ben in canon after all.

The imagery in this story was so vivid I could see what was happening while Giles' thought back to it.

I thought it fitting that Giles' punishment was that the girl he convinced himself wasn't real was the only constant he had after what he did to her. Dawn leaning into the knife was, well, horrifying and fitting. She was resigned to her fate. And it didn't help any of them. They were all damned.

You did a wonderful job of showing that 'The road to Hell is paved with good intentions.' This isn't easy to read because of its very dark subject matter. I think the reason I could is that you didn't flinch away from what happened. You treated it with the severity it deserves, and it shows. Excellent job.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from sosaith
I generally prefer happy stories, but I do have a fondness for very well done dark stories. I adore the bleakness, the regret and the madness. Your story is both subtle and vivid. Very chilling.

Thank you very much! For some strange reason even my "write a happy story" challenges turn dark. I can't seem to help it.

Very happy you enjoyed Giles descent into madness.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from RippersGirl
Wow. I really don't know what to say that. I can definitely see Giles doing that because he knew it needed to be done. Harsh, but you portrayed it very well.
Comments from author:
Thank you very much - when I saw the challenge I didn't envision something so dark. But alas my muse has a mind of her own!

Thank you again for the review! I appreciate it!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from CPTSkip
Yep. Dark, very dark.
Comments from author:
Yep. Approx 3/4 of my stories are in varying shades of dark. That is why I loaded two today - to prove that there was a non-dark variety of my stories out there.
