Review of chapter "A change of plans" from Cmiller
That was great and I would love for you to add more if you can.
Comments from author:
Thanks so much for reading. I've decided not to upload the rest of the story until it's done. Although some stories I do update as I write them. I actually have a completely new story plotted and outlined which is based on this story(a retelling) but I promised myself that I would finished what I write. I want to learn from my mistakes. I really am happy that you enjoyed it. And I will finish this story.

Review of chapter "Lost Faith" from Eureka
So where does it go now? Poor Faith, doesn't feel that she was loved, but yet when does she really give anyone a chance to love her? Can't wait for your next chapter!

Review of chapter "Faith in me" from feekh
Wow this is really good. I think I remember reading the first chapter at some point, but it didn't quite grab me (my bad). I usually give a second chance when a story comes back to my notice with more chapters to its name and boy am I glad that I did.
I like the disjointedness of the whole thing, well more so for Faith than for the Scoobies. It makes a very good case for her dual personality. You do not need to write out every little thing that happens I always feel, your readers are intelligent after all and should be able to make logical leaps from what you give them.
So if I understand this correctly the Wayne's were the ones to call on Hellanka and the price was sacrificing Faith.
The scene with the smalltown cops is interesting as it shows how the Faith/Hellanka relationship is too some extent symbiotic rather than purely parasitic. Hellanka is goading faith on and helping, yet Faith is managing to keep the reigns and hold back. The good side in her having one last hurrah maybe before the show is over.
I wish to see Buffy be a little more introspective about the way she treats Faith. And you are right. From the moment she first died Buffy wasn't the real slayer anymore and at least Giles should have realised that.
So good work on this and I look forward to more in the future.

Review of chapter "Faith gets you through the night" from draconis
I really like the premise of a hell goddess/Faith dynamic, and the demonic oppression explaining the darkness that is Gotham.

Things still seem a bit disconnected at times. For example, you introduced the story element of Hellanka taking over Faith in the hitch-hiking scene. I'm guessing you used the hitchhiker stabbing Faith to provide some kind of opportunity for Hellanka to give control back to Faith or Faith to grab control back from Hellanka? How and why did Faith get control again?...we don't know what happened there.

I don't understand including the entire bit with the sheriff's department. Don't see what it adds to the story...yet, especially if you don't intend to bring them back into the story in the future.

Maybe I missed something, but how old is Bruce in chapter 7 and then in chapter 12? It would be nice to know his age relative to Faith's age.

You keep having other characters call him 'little boy', etc. The last stated age I think was 8. It would seem he should be much older than that by his dialogue and interests in ch7 and then ch12 but there's no clear indication in the story how much he has aged.

Looking forward to more.
Comments from author:
Yes, I have to go back over it for continuity and fix it up. I'm very happy that you take notice to all the little details. I think that in my writing I keep forgetting that Bruce is a young man of fifteen. But I'll fix that up. Thank you very much.

Review of chapter "Lost Faith" from LaDySiN
Worst winter i've ever seen is southwestern Pennsylvania. Bitter cold, usually a ton of snow, windy as hell...
Comments from author:
thanks, Southern Pennsylvania huh? Sounds like it was freezing.

Review of chapter "Faith fading?" from shelimarII
so is faith kinda like her split personality or something? or is it like ben/glory?
Comments from author:
Yes, the Ben/Glory dynamic, except no one loses their memory when they try to put one and two together. And Hellanka is stuck as 'Faith' when she takes control.

But Hellanka isn't the reason Faith went on her evil rampage on Buffy.(That was all Faith.)

Review of chapter "Faith takes a detour" from Cutiepie
I keep feeling like I missed a chapter, so I hope that you will fill in some blanks eventually. I can't pinpoint what information I'm missing, exactly, but it certainly feels like something important has been skipped over. Nevertheless, I am finding this fascinating and I can't wait for more.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review. I will do my best to connect all the points and fill in all the blanks.

Review of chapter "Wavering Faith" from Vornae
well what to say. I believe that you have an interesting plot going on here and i will be following it for a bit, however as a HUGE Batman fan I am not to keen on the picking on Bruce. While I realize it is your story and you can write him anyway you please I just thought I would add my 2 cents on what almost made me stop after the 3rd chapter.

Also since you mentioned it in your disclaimer it is a bit confusing following who is talking.
Comments from author:
Thank you for reading my story.

Don't worry about Bruce:(I enjoy the batman fandom as well.) He's becoming the man he has to be in order to wear the uniform. He's only afraid because of the huge demonic presence in the cave. Alfred has grown a shield to it.

I appreciate your honesty, it's helps writers be the best they can be.

I'll go fix that dialogue.

Hope I haven't put you off my stories forever.
