Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from ShyBob
I'm liking the more mature Faith. Especially because she smacked Kennedy. Retreaded Anya might be a bit over the top, but then Anya is ALWAYS over the top. I'm glad Buffy gets a clean start.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from Bears
Very nice! Empty Places let a very bitter taste in my mouth originally as I see it did for you as well. I definitely appreciate your version of how the show ended. I would have had a very hard time time forgiving the gang the way Buffy did, so Kudos to you!

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from (Current Donor)DeepBlueJoy
This is an awesome story. I actually started writing a story about Buffy leaving a long time ago and it could fit, but I've never had the time to focus on it. I'm kind of thinking that if you have the impulse, you'd do something with it... maybe an eventual Spuffy where Buffy and Spike go off and be itinerant demon hunters with occasional help from Faith and maybe the fang gang... just saying...

Even if I ever get around to writing my "Buffy's Gone" story, I don't plan to use this awesome beginning because *I'd love to see what you'd do with it.* (btw, that's the name of the story, so you might not want to use that). I think 'Getting what you asked for' is actually a great name... after all, Buffy could finally maybe get what she's after... a LIFE!

Your insight into the characters is so very good. I'm very impressed by your writing and your characterizations.

Truthfully, Wanted Once Again uses the prologue for an entrance. Thanks for the props.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from McGurrin
I like it and hope to see a full story written to see where this would go.
Comments from author:
This particular fic is complete, but I have mentioned that it can be used as a prologue to others, either mine or other authors.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from bradsan
I got a comment on TweedWizz's review.

Dawn said that she had to leave, so she was ask to leave the house. When someone is asking you to leave than to my opinion they are trying to throw you out. Buffy was paying everything so they are lucky Buffy didn't throw them out even when they both owned it Buffy still has custody over Dawn.So Dawn got nothing to say.

About the house, she told the man that it's not his house anymore . I quote "This is not your house. It's not your town. Not anymore", meaning nobody was save the protection was gone that's why everybody was leaving town. and if you did watch that episode You saw him leaving the house. I don't know what happened outside but Buffy didn't do it she was inside the House.

Oh and good writing I loved it especially Faith an Anya. consider a sequel please. Love to read the reactions from the Scoobies and the Fang gang response at it. I got the suspicion the Fang gang didn't know what happened.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from TwoBlackDragons
Typo I spotted. Typo in brackets.

“You are wondering if you were wrong.” Willow jumped slightly as Anya sat down next to her. The ex-vengeance demon was looking seriously battered. She had almost died at a Bringer’s sword, but Andrew had finally grown a spine and thrown himself at the Bringer’s back, deflecting the worst of the blow at the last moment. The sword had sunk into Anya shoulder, and she’d almost lost her arm, but Willow had found them as she stumbled out and, [stilled] overflowing with the White Magic of the Guardian, had mostly healed the wound before she nearly passed out.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from TwoBlackDragons
Enjoyed it, thank you for writing it.

Typos I've spotted. Typos in brackets.

Summary: Since I still have unresolved issues with "Empty Places", I thought [I] exorcise them here. Enjoy. FR13 cause Faith is in it.


The mad Preacher snarled furiously and ran at her, his eyes fanatic and insane. Buffy ducked a swing at her head and kicked out, smashing the heel of her shoe into his kneecap with all of her considerable leg strength. The moment the leg collapsed, she pressed her advantage, smashing his temple with the sword hilt. His head slammed into the same tree she had hit only a few moments before. In a desperate move, he backhanded her, sending her rolling away, but she recovered quickly as he made it to his feet. With a final cry of anger, she ran at him just as he pushed away from the tree, running him through with the sword so hard that it penetrated to [] thick trunk of the tree and pinned him in place.


Dawn gasped and her eyes filled [] tears, but Faith turned her back on her, feeling no sympathy.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from lunalurker
I seriously loved this. I had so many problems with how the original episode turned out, and you addressed most them in some way here. Thank you. I'd love a sequel, should inspiration hit again. :)

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from (Past Donor)KieriToews
That was brilliant. I know I had serious issues with the Scoobies, Dawn, and Giles after those episodes as well. Kudos to you.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from sunraye
some one mentioned the trap and the potentials getting killed as buffy shouldn't have taken them with her and it's all her fault. i disagree in the episodes previous kennedy implied that she would go out on her own and she probably would of talked some of the others into going out to. so buffy could either take them with so she could be there to protect them or they could sneak out while she was out and get themselves killed.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from Gideon
Cool story. I can understand where Buffy is coming from but I choose to think she will reconnect after a bit of time and space. Forever is too long to be apart.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from soulfulone
WOW....there is absolutely no ambivalence out there about this fic at all...peeps either loved it or hated it!

i totally agree with your assertion that fanfic authors write their own pov's which is completely what you are entitled to do....and though everyone else is entitled to their own opinion on the subject....they don't have to be assholes about some of your previous reviewers were....i personally liked it and completely appreciate using the creative license to change things anyway you damn well please...fuck everybody else...(i know you wouldn't say it, so i said it for you ;-))

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from TweedWizz
I notice no one has pointed out that:-

a) Launched an unprovoked attack on Faith earlier in the same ep.

And suddenly Faith's following her out? Faith's a lot more understanding and less arrogant than Buffy is, although she has her own massive issues, but there's limits.

b) Buffy didn't get thrown out of her house:-

I can't watch you just throw away everything that— (looks at Xander
and at Dawn, who's not meeting her glance; Buffy holds her head up
high) I know I'm right about this. I just need a little— I can't stay
here and watch her lead you into some disaster.

(stands, walks up to Buffy, softly) Then you can't stay here. Buffy, I
love you, but you were right. We have to be together on this. You
can't be a part of it. (Buffy blinks her eyes in disbelief) So I need
you to leave. I'm sorry, but this is my house, too.

Buffy looks around then walks out the front door.

In short, she wouldn't work with others, so she walked out.

And 'lest we forget, her idiotic plan that she refused to listen
to anyone else about cost several potentials their lives and
Xander his eye.

If they're supposed to blindly follow this congenital moron maybe
they should invite Caleb around for an all you can thumb party.

c) After refusing to play well with the others, she did what?
Broke into someone else's house and THREW THEM OUT!
Spike turned up at the house and got in without an invitation.

So, in short, Buffy killed the house-owner by throwing them out.

And you want to take her side, really? You might want to to check
out the television without pity website for explanations on why Buffy's
actions were so illogical, stupid, and arrogant. I doubt you'd listen, but
you might learn something about plotting and motivations.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from (Recent Donor)Deamondeathstone
So you're a Spuffy fan? As a Xander fan i can honestly say that all the Scoobies fucked eachother over pretty badly at one point or another.

The reason why this fic hasn't caught my fancy so to speak, is the unrealistic friendship between Buffy, Faith and Spike. Faith and Buffy aren't friends, respected colleagues maybe but friends? Nah to much blood under the bridge. Faith doesn't like vampires except Angel, so hanging out with Spike is out. Hell, despite being a F/X nut i must say that Faith would have trouble hanging out with any of the Scoobies at that point.
Comments from author:
Actually, I'm not a Spuffy fan at all. Avoid it as much as I possibly can (occasionally the story itself is just too good to pass up).

As for Faith, I'm going on the premise that she's done a lot of thinking and soul-searching while pining away in prison, simply because I like the idea of a reformed Faith. She doesn't necessarily have to be pals with Buffy to respect her, and she probably never would have said anything if the situation had been any different. I think everyone screwed up in one form or another when she first arrived.

I really don't have a problem with the Scoobies disagreeing with Buffy. I could even get over them kicking her off the top of the mountain. It was throwing her out after everything, and regardless of what anyone else thinks, I think that she has suffered and sacrificed a whole lot because of her Calling. In my fic, Rise of the Phoenix, Buffy blows up at Xander when he runs off at the mouth (panic reaction). Although everyone, including Buffy, admits that sh overreacted, it makes everyone think, and scattered through the story are the Scoobies reflections on not only what they consider to be Buffy's mistakes, but also their own.

BTW, Faith & Spike are mostly Allies by Necessity.
