Review of chapter "Fog and House Elves" from addictedtwotext
Review:
Why has this story been abandoned? There was so much potential here, now gone to waste...
Comments from author:
The creative fires died in a torrent of real life. There might be some smoldering embers, but it'll be a while before they could be revived.

Thanks for reading!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Recent Donor)Luna
Review:
Hello! Found this today and was quite intrigued by Harry-turned-Giles. Very nice! Although I particularly did not enjoy the bashing of everyone from HP-land (the unfriendliness towards his godson Teddy and Hermione and Ron) but I love how he came back and Kreacher is still there! Very interesting. Obviously this is an old fic but I would love to see more if you're up to it!!
Comments from author:
The original intent wasn't to be a Bash Fic, as I tend not to write those, since I generally dislike reading them. They weren't bad people, Harry/Giles was just a bitter old man who felt that the entire wizarding world had taken everything he cared about from him. He had built a new life for himself as a Watcher, and their arrival just brought everything back at a bad time (just after Joyce's death) and he just kind of exploded.

I've tried to come back to it from several directions but the fire seems to have burned out, or at least reduced itself to embers. When the creative fires start giving off heat again I'll return to it, but for now it'll have to stay as is.

I'm really glad you like it and hopefully there will be more. Thanks for reading!

Review of chapter "Fog and House Elves" from mwinter
Review:
A little more would help here?
Comments from author:
I've been planning to do something more with this for a while, but my original plan was a bit of a failure. I'm rethinking my ideas now.

Thanks for reading!

Comments from author:
It's one that I've tried to update, but I just can't quite get into the mindset to write it these days. It's a shame because it's one that I really want to go back to.

Thanks for reading!

Review of chapter "Fog and House Elves" from sdavidm
Review:
Sounds like Travers knows more about Giles' past than Giles believes. This story has potential, so I hope you continue it!
Comments from author:
Yeah, It's one I want to continue, but just haven't had the time. I've been working so hard on other things that I haven't been able to do everything that I wanted.

But thanks for reading. It reminds me that people still like this old thing.

Review of chapter "Fog and House Elves" from SpacedCadet
Review:
Very interesting!

This is an excellent start and I really hope you update early and often.
Comments from author:
Truth be told, It's been a while before it was updated. I'm working on the next chapter and it's not abandoned, but it's not going to be updated very soon. I have other things ahead of it.

Review of chapter "Fog and House Elves" from CrystalBlaze
Review:
Travers wants inroads to the Wizarding World, I see. I can just imagine--Malfoy, not trusting wizards to secure Harry Potter, spills the beans to Travers in exchange for a cut of the Potter vaults after exchange to pounds sterling and all the mystic paraphernalia!!
Comments from author:
Nope, Travers doesn't have any idea the Wizarding World exists. It would be a problem if some connection like that should exist, but it doesn't at this point.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Review of chapter "Fog and House Elves" from zafaran
Review:
More, more, more, please. This is very interesting, and I can't *wait* to see if someone pushes Giles to the point of going "Ripper" on them, and being the fly on the wall when it happens. {snicker} I hope your muse and schedule will allow you to write and post more chapters sometime soon. Keep up the good work. Zafaran {mailto:} zafaran {at} fastmail {dot} fm
Comments from author:
Oh, it will happen. I don't know when I'll post more, but I'll get to it eventually.

Thanks for reading!

Review of chapter "Fog and House Elves" from AllenPitt
Review:
Quentin is friendly? Apocalypse is nigh. Maybe a witch is going to get all Chosen soon. Hopefully Willow resurrects Buffy, that will screw things up nicely, on schedule. And he still hasn't contacted Lily Potter how interesting. At least he's probably still got Hermione for a contact if he needs someone in that world.
Hm, has the ear of the Prime Minister -that could help quite a bit. The slayer should be getting a salary, never mind her watcher. I always thought it was ludicrous that Buffy was losing her house etc while Giles got a salary from the council (not his fault of course).
Maybe Quentin knows about the wizarding world & is plotting something...?
Comments from author:
I'll be honest, the Buffy side of things is going to follow right along with the show, right up until Chosen. It's not a big surprise, so I'll let it slip.

As for Lily Molly Potter, that's a bit harder to deal with than you'd think. I'm not going to make it an easy make up. They're basically strangers who have the same DNA with legends and rumors abounding about Giles. It's not easy to instantly get together.

Quentin doens't know about the Wizarding World. That's not a secret. I'm pretty sure Quentin Travers thinks he knows everything that he needs to know.

I had problems with that part of Buffy almost loosing everything. I think she didn't demand anything for herself was because her mother was still alive at that point and everyone thought Joyce would get better. Had Joyce died earlier, Buffy might have demanded more.

Thanks for reading and reviewing, I'll post more some time in the future.

Review of chapter "Fog and House Elves" from (Current Donor)RngrThorne
Review:
This is very interesting. I look forward to him meeting Lilly. And him introducing her to the rest of his 'children.'
Comments from author:
I think that might take place in the next chapter, but it's going to be a while. I just posted what I had done and I don't have too much time to write these days. I'll be doing more soon enough. Thanks for reading and reviewing.

Review of chapter "Fog and House Elves" from spring
Review:
I love this story so far. Giles is Harry? Oh my. I do have to ask simply because you didn't say, did Giles go back to the hellmouth as he claimed he would? Again I love this wonderful story so far and I eagerly await the next installment.
Comments from author:
Giles is Harry. It's just something that popped into my head a while back. I'm glad you like it, but it probably won't be updated for some time. It's a secondary story.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Review of chapter "Fog and House Elves" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Some interesting ideas... although - slayers around the world? What AU would that be? Meanwhile good forshadowing that Travers may be under imperious on one small issue of Rupert Giles' current position.
Comments from author:
That was actually "Slayers" in general. At this point in the story there is just one, Faith. Buffy hasn't been brought back yet. It's going to be basically right along with Buffy with very little changes on that front.

It's something I didn't think I would continue, but there was a demand for more, so I did. I'm going to keep it fairly short. Thanks for reading and reviewing.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from enderverse
Review:
much better than most Giles is a wizard stories.
Comments from author:
Thanks! When I get around to writing some more it should get better. I had a whole political struggle set up, but it's on the back burner for a while.

I'm thinking about it. I'm not exactly sure where I am going with this.
