Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)dogbertcarroll
I'm not seeing based on, I am seeing the entire movie being re-written with just the names changed. This has zero to do with Buffy.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Moderator)Ava
This is an interesting premise and very well written but when, if ever, will the characters begin to act like their BtVS counterparts? Because at the moment this reads as a ‘Training Day’ fic and I see nothing of BtVS in it. Who is Liz? Because she certainly isn’t Buffy.

I’m all for AUs. I adore them actually, but to be an AU the characters still have to act and react as the characters they are based on. Otherwise all that you have are original characters that just happen to share similar physical traits and names… and your story doesn’t even have them using their proper names.

Someone once said that all fanfiction is by definition Out Of Character, since they are not acting the same way and doing the same things they are in the actual stories. In my case at least, I go 'What if so-and-so did this, that and the other?'

That being said, the later chapters will explain why Elizabeth Anne Summers, aka Liz, aka Buffy is acting the way that she is. Keep in mind, Liz (can you see a female police officer being taken seriously if she goes by *Buffy*, especially in Valley Division?) is 23 yrs old, her sister Dawn is 17 yrs old, and their mother Joyce in nowhere in sight.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Greywizard
Quite interesting beginning.

Looking forward to seeing what you do next.

(And hoping to see Stein eventually take one between the eyes with a shotgun.)

Thanks for the FB, since I have free time this week I thought I should start work on *something*. :)

And if Stein catches a shotgun round, trust me, it won't be just one pellet. :D

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from EternalPrelude
I really like where this looks to be going. I recognized it as Training Day right off, but there's enough of a difference to make it appear totally fresh. Interested to see where you're taking's well written, and the setup is far enough away from Training Day to really give it an air of mystery. Looking forward to more.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from AllenPitt
neat story.... kind of hard to envision her in the PD, then again that's what her career day test said. And hey--at least Xander is on "the right side of the bars".... makes me wonder if willow is in there somewhere.
yep, "snitches" aren't well liked--
Comments from author:
Most of the core characters are going to make at least a short appearance.

And Liz is not what she was described as in Xander's fairy tale. That was mostly from the official reports that Xander had heard about from the background investigator. The truth is a lot more complex than that.
