Review of chapter "Halloween" from agnar
Review:
And you lost me. Bad enough Janus' great 'gift' to Xander means he's actually going to need to work and study for YEARS before he's likely to be of ANY help at all since D&D mages study for years just be level 1 weaklings, let alone archmagi or whatever. So that's honestly a pretty fucking lame power up, giving him books and starting up his magic, but not actually making him an accomplished mage.

Great, Xander can levitate pencils for 5 years or other such lame ass, useless shite.

THEN you toss in the beyond ludicrous watchers council having a magic grid that detects 'dragon magic' on the fucking HELLMOUTH, knows what it is, and has lots of mages and retrieval teams on hand able to capture a dragon, when in canon they can't find their own asses with both hands and half a dozen helpers.

Sorry, the fic had potential, always looking for good Xander gets a power up fics. But this chapter just made me lose interest. If I wanted to see Xander take 20 years to become slightly dangerous I'd just go with canon. Because that's about how long it actually takes D&D type mages to get bad ass, especially since there's no actual XP being earned.

I agree which is why I am currently rewriting this story without Xander being a wizard.

Review of chapter "Words are spoken" from Prometeus
Review:
Wow, Thanatos is a weakling. Some loser Watcher questions him for wanting to know why some bitch tried to kill him and he folds instantly. Give me a break. Giles is lucky Thanatos didn't break every bone in Kendra's body and knock a few of her teeth out to teach her a lesson. The kind of lesson Buffy would benefit from too and might save both their stupid ridiculously gung-ho narrow-minded lives.

Well, this point, where your own original characters are out-of-character, in the same chapter you introduce him no less, is where I leave off. Good day to you and please learn about logical consistency some day. Hint: logical consistency is NOT "mysterious badass becomes defensive when a third rate watcher looks at him cross-eyed then proceeds to spill all his secrets to the people he despises". That's what's called a logical *contradiction*.

Oh yeah, and a logical contradiction is where someone rapes you while you scream NOOOO and then says you obviously wanted it. Yeah, logical contradictions are bad things! BAD. BAAAAD. And not in a good way but in a bad bad way.

A man's reputation, especially one being handed out by a group that hates him, is NOT what makes the man. Please learn the difference. Thank you.

Review of chapter "Aftermath" from LFW
Review:
Doom and Warren is scary and they are not even the main villain. And I do believe that you made Buffy a bit more of a bitch than she should be in this season. More later as I finish this fic. Thanks
Comments from author:
Well, I figured anyone would be upset having thier boyfriend or girlfriend get stabbed in the chest with a claw. I am trying to get her and Doom back into charater and I hope that this continues to improve. Thanks for the review!
