Review of chapter "Prologue: Enter the Dragon" from HMaxMarius
Review:
Just out of curiosity... and being as I'm only about 2/3rd through the first story... Has it been pointed out that the photo on the series page labelled 'The Friend' is actually 'Vi' and not 'Willow'???

Or does Vi come into things in a later story?

Edit: Okay... If I had read just two more chapters... *smacks self in head*

Review of chapter "Coda: In the Land of the Blind" from CrystalBlaze
Review:
Fury and the Avenger Initiative in competition with DRI? That'll get really ugly, really fast, especially if the other king in the land of the blind gets involved..

After all, the Hand has been cited. Where the Hand is, there are such as Stick, Elektra.. and a lawyer that wouldn't touch Wolfram and Hart with his cane. The nunchaku, maybe, but not the cane..

Review of chapter "Coda: In the Land of the Blind" from CageFire
Review:
Hmm, I skipped past this story several times in the past because I'm not familiar at all with Iron Fist, but after the first several chapters and some wikipedia research, I think I've become rather hooked. Anyway, I think I've got two more stories to get caught up on so I'll get to that.

Review of chapter "Coda: In the Land of the Blind" from ShyBob
Review:
I've enjoyed your alternate history. You're one of the very few authors to avoid Angelus and still have the season unfold in a way that keeps true to cannon. I'm hoping for a Xander/Vi pairing, but since you didn't have Angelus whack Jenny I think I'm going to be a little let down. On with the series...
Comments from author:
Thanks.

Potential spoiler warning here:





It's not Xander/Vi. I've done that pairing before, and didn't want to repeat myself, so picked something different for this.

Review of chapter "Coda: In the Land of the Blind" from MarcusSLazarus
Review:
Intriguing bit of work, I have to admit.

VERY intriguing indeed...

While I do wish you'd explored the fact that "Iron Fist" was actually available as a comic book costume in Ethan's shop- even if Xander didn't recognise him, the implications seemed significant to me; doesn't that mean someone ELSE would be aware of the Iron Fist?-, his exploration and development of his powers was rather interesting to read, especially with his relationship with Jenny taken into account (They really make a rather interesting pairing, when you get down to it).

True, I wish you'd had Xander give Angel more of a chance than he did- the man's spent the last hundred years dealing with guilt for over a century of torture and mutilation and the few times he's tried to help anyone in the intervening time he's ended up either getting hung or having to sire somebody; Angel definitely had his REASONS for being reluctant to help out before now!-, and I'm still not entirely certain he could have become THAT competent a tactician with just a few lessons from Orson, but the bond that you had him develop with the earlier Iron Fist was still intriguing for all that.

And as for the way things have been left...

I have a feeling the situation is DEFINITELY going to get interesting sooner rather than later.

Keep up the good work!
Comments from author:
There are others that are aware of the Iron Fist. It just isn't recorded in history to a detailed degree. Making it a comic book opens up areas I didn't want to go into, especially in terms of integrating the worlds. Especially since the Iron Fist has been around for so long.

There's reluctance, but there's also Angel's work with Whistler and his declaration that he wanted to be somebody. Couple that with his actions in Season One, and he comes off as a little weak, and it calls into question his motivations. Xander does give him the benefit of the doubt, but given that he wasn't willing to risk himself for Buffy the way that Xander was at the end of S1, it is cause for concern.

As for Orson, Xander's with him constantly for months. That, and Xander retaining some of Orson's memories/skills, makes the learning curve a lot less steep. It could be argued that it's a bit Mary Sue-ish, but it's in trying to keep things consistent with the situation that was set up.

Orson's lessons aren't all shown, and he is actually much more of a director in terms of action while he is there.

Thanks.

Review of chapter "Coda: In the Land of the Blind" from (Past Donor)MetropolisRising
Review:
Having just recently read the Immortal Iron Fist, I was really pleased to to see that you'd posted this. As I read it I became even more please. You managed to create a comprehensive meshed universe that flowed really well and made Xander very interesting. Thanks for this, I'm eagerly awaiting your continuation

Review of chapter "Chapter Twelve: Way of the Dragon" from ordieth
Review:
Excellent ending for the first book. A couple minor grammatical or subject errors, which is also good for a chapter this long. Well done.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eleven: The Opening Stone" from ordieth
Review:
I like the new chapter. As for what I meant about nastiness, some authors really like to show the reader just how evil and nasty the bad guys (and some good guys) are. I'm glad you haven't gone that route, and hope you don't.
Comments from author:
Well, they're bad guys so they get into nastiness. Comes with the territory, but I don't intend to play it up. And it shouldn't be anything worse than what was on the shows. Thanks.

Review of chapter "Chapter Ten: Afternoon Tea with Oolong" from Pardryll
Review:
Very, very nice! I've never personally read the Iron Fist comics, but my ex-boyfriend works in a comic shop and I've seen it there. You have a silver virtual tongue, my dear, and I. Am. Lovin' it!
