Review of chapter "Epilogue." from fourmenandanelephant
Review:
I really liked having Dawn suffer the same punishment as Buffy for not writing a letter to be read post "sacrifice"... I really don't like story's where higher or infernal powers use a young impressionable hero worshiping Dawn in particular to accomplish their aims... It's morally disgusting to me due to those qualities a lot like the use of child soldiers or suicide bombers... This story would have been better if Buffy had rebuilt the Council and had lead a expedition of her friends and some of their Slayers to Middle Earth to try to rescue Dawn and ended up accidentally taking over Mordor by killing off all of the Orc's they could find and then coming into conflict with the Elf's and Valar or having the summoning happen in Scotland at that massive Castle having been looked over and partially powered by the Devon Coven so while Dawn was transported she didn't lose her child and could have enjoyed her forced sojurn and Buffy could have stood up to her husband and his military forces on military terms and made clear that she wouldn't tolerate being threatened by him or accept the rather arbitrary decisions of the "Valar" to manipulate her life and her sisters for that matter for whatever nonsensical reason they could come up with that week and insist they stay for a few decades to learn live and grow in the amazing modern world that Dawn had come from...
Comments from author:
Thank you for taking the time to review the story - it is much appreciated.



I'm afraid I must disagree. If those things had happened it wouldn't have been this story, but a very different one, for that would have been a story that regards the comics as canon, and Dawn as wanting to come back to the 21st Century and our reality.

It might be a very interesting story - but it wouldn't have been this one, or mine - it would be yours - and I would, genuinely, encourage you to go ahead and write it.

Review of chapter "Chapter Sixteen" from raxadian
Review:
Well, thankfully Buffy will be able to see her sister again.
Comments from author:
I'm glad that you think it is right that they find some way of staying in touch so that Buffy, in particular, doesn't worry about her sister so much.

Review of chapter "Chapter Fifteen." from raxadian
Review:
I wonder if any of the humans will want to visit Middle Earth.
Comments from author:
I know that you now know the answer to that!

Review of chapter "Chapter Fourteen." from raxadian
Review:
Well, I still say this makes Buffy and Dawn even. Actually Dawn owns Buffy, since she can go back to her new family while Buffy can't go back to heaven.
Comments from author:
You are right - although I felt sorry for Willow when I wrote it as she had done the deed both times!

Review:
Now that's a very good question.
Comments from author:
Thank you! The answer will come in a chapter or two's time.

Review of chapter "Chapter Twelve." from raxadian
Review:
Is a sad thing that Buffy is left all alone, isn't it?
Comments from author:
It is - no matter how you look at it they can't, all, get the happy ending they want...

Review of chapter "Chapter Eleven." from raxadian
Review:
Well she is the key, she should be able to open a way back.
Comments from author:
The problem is that most keys don't really understand how to open locks - they need someone to wield them... And, of course, which door to open.

Review of chapter "Chapter Ten." from raxadian
Review:
Well to be fair, Buffy did die for Dawn, only to be dragged away of heaven months later, so now they are even.
Comments from author:
Exactly so! And, just like they dragged Buffy out of heaven, they've now managed to drag Dawn from somewhere that she, too, was happy. But it is not so easy for Buffy to equate the two... at least just yet.

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine." from raxadian
Review:
I guess Buffy wants Dawn back cause she is the only family she has left.
Comments from author:
Absolutely. And she imagines Dawn must be in some terrible Hell Dimension because it is where The First brought his warriors from, of course.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eight." from raxadian
Review:
Well, Dawn would have a hard time fitting with human women of the middle Earth.
Comments from author:
It would be a very, very, different lifestyle, for sure...

Review of chapter "Chapter Seven." from raxadian
Review:
Well. what will Dawn do, only she is healthy?
Comments from author:
She will certainly have a lot to think about!

Review of chapter "Chapter Six." from raxadian
Review:
Is nice to see Dawn being so pampered and with such nice people.
Comments from author:
I must admit to having something of a soft spot for her - but it isn't going to be all plain-sailing...

Review of chapter "Chapter Five." from raxadian
Review:
The formerly grey wizard sure loves his secrets, uh?
Comments from author:
He does indeed! I always feel he has a tendency to keep what he knows to himself unless he really feels it needs to be shared - and then he dishes the information out in small portions...

Review of chapter "Chapter Four." from raxadian
Review:
Ah, Dawn is with nice people, too bad she misses her family.
Comments from author:
I thought it would be unrealistic for a seventeen year old not to miss 'home', even if she is not unhappy where she is.
