Review of chapter "Chapter Five" from agnar
I had been enjoying the fic, but honestly my interest ended when you made Harry useless, maybe even worse than useless by taking away his magic. So now you've got this guy who for 7 years has depended upon his magic to do ALL his fighting and it's gone.

Xander might as well carry around a backpack full of weights just to handicap his 'hunting' even more.

Sorry but I really kinda hate when fics do this with crossovers. Yeah, lets bring in Harry Potter, but remove his magic! Or lets bring in Bruce Lee but he forgot all his martial arts skills! Or Connor Mcleod, except he's no longer immortal and forgot how to use a sword!

The characters are no longer the characters when you remove such an integral, VITAL part of them. Would anyone watch the show, if Buffy was just a blonde Cordelia, no super powers, no vampires, no demons? Maybe, but then it would just be Sunnydale 90210 or some aaron spelling teen soap shit.

You bring in Harry Potter, keep his magic, otherwise you should just make up some random OC, or do a crossover with some frigging show/movie where magic doesn't exist. As it is, it's just annoying.

great story i hope willows magic blows up in her own face
Comments from author:
*grins* I don't want to say much, because while I know it's been awhile since I've updated this fanfic I do plan on continuing it, so I don't want to give anything away.

Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from Downery
Enjoy Harry Potter stories but wish he wasn't in this crossover. Would've been twice as good without Harry in it.
Comments from author:
Sorry, but (I believe I said this in one of my authors notes, but I'm not sure) I didn't want this to be a super Xander story, so Xander needed friends, including a magic user of his very own (rather then ending up getting magic powers of his own). I did consider other characters, and while admittedly I can't remember exactly why at the moment I do remember I settled on Harry because I felt he fit the story better then other characters I could have gone with.

Review of chapter "Chapter Three" from Downery
Enjoying the story but don't know why Harry would turn galleons into pounds. Euro's would be more useful if he was on the run in Europe. Plus if he was going back in time then the gold would've been better.
Comments from author:
Ah, but Harry didn't know he'd be universe jumping so he didn't exactly have time to plan let alone bring something with him.

However, you are correct about the pounds vs euros, and that's because I keep forgetting about the new system across the pond.

Thanks for reviewing and sorry for the delay in my reply.

Review of chapter "Chapter Ten aka Sunnydale Interlude" from WmGeorge
Wow ... this was great. I love how much Xander grew once he was away from SunnyD and the others. And yes, I've always felt they held him back by expecting him to fit in the image they held of him.

You're a wonderful writer, and I look forward to the sequel.
Comments from author:
*blushes* *grins*

Thank you for your kind words.

Anyway, "Season Two" (the direct sequel) is all ready up and finished - it's a bit (okay, a lot) darker then "Season One," and I'm hoping to get the first chapter of "season three" posted soon. It will also be a bit dark for some characters, but not Xander himself.

Review of chapter "Chapter Ten aka Sunnydale Interlude" from (Current Donor)Shieldage
Eh, great explanation for the contained vampires in HP. Not sure I like Harry being able to recreate the small scale spell so easily, but okay.

Nice character evolution for Warrick, I think he'll be great in his new job over in Season 2 :)
Comments from author:
*grins* The main reason I even made Harry able to do it was so that I could do the Whedon thing and give the new team (TeamXander) a vampire with a soul. I did try to make it hard enough on him that doing it again would be really iffy and perhaps even impossible.

As for Warrick, I really thought he'd play a bigger part in Season Two, but it looks like it won't be until towards the ending where his part expands a bit. But, yeah, despite that he's doing awesomely in his new job. ;)

Review of chapter "Chapter Ten aka Sunnydale Interlude" from spring
I love this chapter. I have to wonder why Giles was so relived that Xander wasn't going to be staying, almost jumping for joy. I can definitely understand Willow's reaction I just hope that she gets over the fact that Xander's home is no longer Sunnydale it would be a big shame to the both of them to loose that long lasting friendship over this. I really have to worry about what attacked Warwick. I am very very eager to read the sequel to this wonderful fic.
Comments from author:
With Giles it isn't really that he doesn't care about Xander, but I firmly maintain that back in the first three seasons Giles cared much more about Buffy and even Willow then he did Xander, and in season six Giles basically proved that as far as he was concerned Buffy was the only one that really mattered to him, but that's another rant for another time, and actually not completely relevant to Giles reaction in this fanfic at least not yet.

Re: Willow, I really thought I could write Willow eventually coming around, but Willow is firm in her resistance to this idea, even with Tara doing her best to bring Willow around. So, Xander and Willow won't be bestest buds anymore, the good news is they won't be bitter enemies either, but Willow just can't get past feeling betrayed that Xander left her even if that isn't exactly what he did.

Re: Warrick *evil grin*

Thanks for reading and reviewing.

Review of chapter "Chapter Ten aka Sunnydale Interlude" from calikocat
The End? THE END? T_T Please tell me there's going to be a sequel, Xander Season Two perhaps? Because yeah...emotional cliff hanger. Will Willow forgive Xander? Will Warrick turn into a werewolf? (I totally did not see the wolf attack coming, you have nifty yet evil plot twists and I envy your plot twist skillz) And do I see Xander having a relationship with Catherine on the horizon? Hmm. So many questions, and I have no answers. T_T And shouldn't Dawn have popped in by now?

As always you've provided a wonderful chapter and I hope to see a sequel.
Comments from author:
*grins* As I've told others, I didn't realize putting "The End" at the end would through so many people. I've went back and noted that yes there will be a sequel, which I've all ready started work on.

As for Willow and Warrick - I'll answer(ish) one, because while it will be addressed to a certain extent, it won't be addressed as much as the other. Right or wrong, Willow feels betrayed not just that Xander left, but now that Xander has come home (in her opinion) that he isn't planning to stay. I'm not saying they'll end up enemies, but they won't be bestest friends anymore either.
(As for Dawn, she doesn't pop in until the end of "Buffy vs Dracula," and while I am fiddling a bit with the timing of "BvD" here we're still at least a month away from that happening at this point.)

Review of chapter "Chapter Ten aka Sunnydale Interlude" from AngelBlack
And so begins Xander: Season Two... right? *looks pitifully needy*

I do love this story, it was much better than I ever expected it to be, as well as unlike any other Xander!fic that I've read. Very unique- I assume you will be continuing? I mean come on- Warrick's gonna be a werewolf! You can't just leave me hanging!

Also, I found it extremely sad how you ended with the bit about Giles respecting Xander about as much as his bilogical father had. =[
Comments from author:
*blushes* Sorry, I should have noted that there would, of course, be a sequel here. I have went back and noted that, because yeah that would be a sucky place to completely end things.

As for that last bit with Xander thinking about Giles, remember that is Xander's point of view, perhaps not exactly how Giles feels. Although to be fair, as I told another reviewer, without the Buffy Season Four bonding that Giles and Xander did, I just don't think they'd be close, because Giles was awful hard on Xander more than a few times during the first three seasons - he coddled Buffy and even Willow to an extent, but was way harsh on Xander. So, while this Giles doesn't actually hate Xander (like Xander kind of thinks) he (Giles) is still at the point of thinking that more often than not Xander just wasn't very helpful, which (of course) isn't remotely true, but I do think without their Season Four bonding that's probably how Giles would feel.
