Review of chapter "Freezing Snow, Thawing Hearts" from MistressRed
Review:
I like it, but I don't get why he avoided all the Scoobies, not just Buffy. I mean, him and Willow were best buds forever...
Comments from author:
First of all, thanks for the feedback, it's appreciated.

Xander knew he wouldn't be able to keep what happened from the others if he stayed in contact, and like his fears with Giles, didn't want to find out whether they would side with Buffy. He also didn't want to cause anymore animosity within the group, and his self imposed exile was the best way he knew to do that.

Whether his fears were baseless or not doesn't really matter; Xander hadn't been thinking clearly when he demanded his assignment, and by the time he was thinking clearly, too much time had gone past. He would need to dredge up the past, give an explanation for his absence, and that would mean facing the one thing he had spent so much time avoiding.

Anyway, that's my take on it.

Oh, Vlad, this is so sweet. There is far too little Xander/Buffy in this world these days. Thank you for adding to the store. I so needed this today.

You are more than welcome.

I realised I hadn't posted this story here, and with Valentine's Day coming up it seemed like the best time.

Review of chapter "Freezing Snow, Thawing Hearts" from Greywizard
Review:
Nice and an entirely believable sequence of events.

It's a shame we don't see more of this type of story any more, but Joss seems to have been fairly successful at killing most thoughts of Buffy and Xander being together romantically.

Good job, man.

It's sad that the number of BX fics are dwindling, but when you have Buffy going for another Slayer, you can see that Joss really doesn't see Xander as a viable option. I know that Buffy once called him one of the girls, but it looks like he really needs to be one of the girls to even get a look in ^_^
