Comments from author:
Thanks for the feedback, life forced me to take a (significant) break from writing, but I'm just starting to get back into things. Once my muse is in full flow, I will be resuming work on the story.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from clockworkorange
Review:
I like that you made Buffy a Dursley and not a Potter, that's a refreshing change. I also really like the use of reincarnation at the beginning.

Update soon, pretty please?

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Mmm... missed the bookstore. Enjoying the AU, but also hoping you won't retread all of the books.
Comments from author:
I seriously doubt I have the time to redo them all, although the idea I mentioned in other comments of doing a 'snapshot' series - taking key events and inserting Buffy into them - holds some appeal.

Flourish and Blotts is a tiny sequence in Philosphers Stone anyway, only three or so paragraphs long, so I decided to focus on Gringotts and Ollivanders, as they establish Harry's generous nature and Buffy's wand. Although if I do those snapshots, the CoS bookshop sequence will be one of the rewrites!

Glad you're enjoying the story, more is in the works.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from spring
Review:
Wonderful chapter. I really like the differences that you have going from both the books and the movie so far.^_^ I hope that you are able to update this wonderful story again soon.
Comments from author:
I've tried to meld the books and films into one and then spun my own narrative from that point (for instance, one moment from the film I WILL be keeping is Ron's "That was bloody brilliant!" when MacGonagall transforms infront of them, as I think it's a great moment worthy of inclusion and is one of the films better deviations).

Glad you're enjoying the story, hopefully things should speed up a bit now.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from AllenPitt
Review:
Probably outside the scope of this story, but--is she in the same world as that of the tv series? And got reborn during her own lifetime? Or is this an alternate world with another Angel/Angelus? Are there slayers here. Etc!
One hopes she'll get all Chosen during 5th year or earlier... hm, at some point Willow might try to get her back, also. Imagine Harry then following her to get her back from there...
Comments from author:
Given that I've set it up with her soul being in limbo/heaven/however you perceive it (I left that very vague on purpose) for an indeterminate time, it could be within her previous life - the journeys of souls is not as straightforward as some would think :-)

But it could equally be another dimension, one where Buffy Anne Summers wasn't born. To be honest, I haven't decided on that yet as it's not relevant to the story I'm telling and I like to keep my options open for any future developments I wish to make, so I don't have to go back and tinker with things too much.

But yes, there ARE Slayers in this world, I have made that choice already.

As for Willow seeking to bring back Buffy, that may take place in a post-Deathly Hallows story. I seriously doubt that I can rewrite every book, so I may do a 'snapshot' story next, rewriting various scenes to include Buffy and then flash forward to post-DH. Or I may include those as 'flashbacks' in that story. Who knows, that's for the future. For now we have this story :-)

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from TAO
Review:
I'll be honest with you...I tend to avoid "retellings" of the story even if there's an added twist, but it well written and had just enough of what I call the "WTF!?!" factor to keep my interest. So....

*cracks knuckles and drums fingers on keyboard impatiently*

where....is....chapter....3?

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from Krysstinia
Review:
Nice addition. I particularly liked Harry giving Buffy money. Keep up the good work.
Comments from author:
I was pleased with that myself, as it helps tie in how like his parents Harry is - James 'kept' Remus Lupin for a while once they left school, as Lupin found it nigh on impossible to get a job due to his werewolf status.

The sorting of Buffy is written (came to me in the shower and I had to quickly get it all down), I've just got the end of summer at the Dursleys and the Hogwarts express sequence to finish off and that chapter will be ready.

For those interested, Buffy's wand wood follows the pattern of Harry, Ron and Hermione's in that it is made from the birthtree for the 22 of May. And yes, it IS Angel's hair (another shower moment - great place for thinking, I find) in the core, not some mysterious other souled vampire. I have no plans to further include him in the story, it just seemed the perfect core for her and is another of those little elements to help tie the two 'verses together.

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from cbq
Review:
This is an interesting story and I'm looking forward to more. I got a bit confused though, first you say:

"Over a year had passed since Buffy's birth, it was a cold November morning and had it had been barely a week since they had had Petunia's nephew dumped on their doorstep."
And then:
"She was less than two hours old!"

Keep up the good work.
Comments from author:
Poor editing after a long night, mia culpa.

The finally resolved chronology (and offending lines referring to the old fully exorcised) is thus:

22 May 1980, Buffy Anne Dursley is born.
31 July 1980, Harry James Potter is born (Potterverse canon)
31 October 1981, the Potter family is murdered (Potterverse canon)
08 November 1981, Dumbledore's letter arrives.

Hope that clears everything up!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Recent Donor)GothTroubleMaker
Review:
Cool. If you ever get confused avout the harry potter details you should check out http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page . It's all about harry potter, it even shows the family tree on some stuff. :)
Comments from author:
It's not confusion about HP details themselves, but how to twist those details to suit the needs of my narrative, specifically since I've made Buffy's death/birthdate match when The Gift first aired (I do have plans for that), although at a pinch any date could do. I just want it really tied in to the Buffyverse - especially since this is mostly set in the HP-verse and any link to the Buffyverse is all the more important due to its scarcity. Hence my stubborn insistance on using 22nd May for Buffy when I could make things so much easier on myself ;-)

And thanks for the wiki link, I already have it bookmarked but it's always good to spread the word of these sites, as it is a veritable gold mine of Potter trivia.
