Review of chapter "Hasta la Vista, Glory..." from DarthTenebrus
Review:
Touching...if a bit fast. Made Glorificus's end just a little bit anticlimactic, but it's better than the innumerable dimensions of existence bleeding into each other and creating Hell on Earth.

He'll Be Back...

Good and logical (for a time travel/halloween story) shortfic.

Review of chapter "Hasta la Vista, Glory..." from LordSia
Review:
Xander returns.
It's inevitable. Because really, he's not going to let a little thing like all the devils in Nine Hells keep him from protecting Dawn.
Honestly, what are you thinking with? Your Twinkie?
Comments from author:
True enough. Xander would move heaven and earth to protect those he cares about. What's hell in comparison?

Review of chapter "Hasta la Vista, Glory..." from heavymetalman
Review:
I didn't expect such a good ending from a random short like this, but nice job!

Just watched both Terminators this week for the first time after swearing they were just crapping 80's action movies, but was converted so rushed out to look for any good fics... Thanks for writing this.
Comments from author:
I too avoided Terminator for many years, thinking they were senseless crap. I stood corrected...

Of course I now think that 'Rise of the Machines' and 'Salvation' are senseless crap, so there you are... :p

I'm glad you liked it

Review of chapter "Hasta la Vista, Glory..." from JediLaSombra
Review:
Great story if a little sappy towards the end. I like it.

I would think that if Xander did come back that he would be like Angel when he returned from Acathla's dimension. Only instead of feral, he'd be completely expressionless. With no one to banter with in the other dimension and the growing knowledge that the chances of him seeing Dawn or the rest of his friends were shrinking the longer he stayed, Xander would retreat into himself and let the Terminator progamming take over. He would slip into a sort of waking coma. Then when he falls through the portal back, the portal's energy jolts him awake but not enough to take control back.

After that you can do a sort of parallel to what Buffy did with Angel and have Dawn stumble across him. Just a thought.

Probably a realistic evaluation of what might happen... :p

Review of chapter "Hasta la Vista, Glory..." from LFW
Review:
I would think that Janus would miss his avatar and would at least point Xander in the right direction to escape what ever Hell dimension.

Awesome idea and fic, I really would like more, but unless Xander is more human after his visit to Hell there really is not much of a point to bring him back to Dawn.
Comments from author:
Indeed... I won't write the next part anyway, I think. For those that choose to see a heroic death, the story is essentially over anyway. For those that choose to see Xander returning to Dawn against all odds, I doubt if I could ever do justice to their imaginations... ;)

Review of chapter "Hasta la Vista, Glory..." from sosaith
Review:
Of course he came back. He said he'd try, and because he is still Xander where it counts, he'll succeed. And, because it will take him a hundred hell-demension-years to do it, he will have had time to remember his humanity. He realizes he loves Dawn and they get married. He continues to protect her and they're both awesome, the end! Best story ever.

Sounds good to me...

Review of chapter "Hasta la Vista, Glory..." from NeverTooOld
Review:
Primo! Just enough of Xander leaks thru to 'humanize' the T-101. I especially liked way Dawn grew up and her crush grew up as well. Using Acathla to get rid of Glory was a nice touch. Both Xander and the terminator would be willing to give their life to save Dawn. Hopefully, he can make it back.

Review:
Well I have read the rest. This is the strongest one, the first was quite a mixed bag and Xander Bunny was amusing.

Still an interesting series.

Review of chapter "Hasta la Vista, Glory..." from CPTSkip
Review:
Excellent job with the Xander Terminator. I wonder if he and Glory continue their battle in Hell or they join together to take over this Hell dimension. Lol!
Comments from author:
They would never join together. They might ignore each other, but that would be the best one could hope for... ;)

Review of chapter "Hasta la Vista, Glory..." from RedHeadReader
Review:
PLEASE!!! let him come back!!!!!! please! Seriously, I was nearly in tears. Despite only seeing bits of the old movies and a little of the new TV series, I have the gist of the Terminator-verse, but please, have Xander come back to Dawn. It can take a year, or more, he could fight his way out if he had to (demony upgrades, the computer virus from hell... think about it)! Or the Powers could give Dawn him back like they did Angel for Buffy. First they retrieve him from Acathala then make it snow!?! C'mon, you can do no less. please?? *puppy dog eyes* Really, a sequel would be nice, and maybe later ficlets could be less angsty? A couple fluffy ones would be nice, so far Xander seems to die, or be turned into a rabbit (and i guess that ended happily, kinda).
Anyway, my request for a sequel stands.
