Well, no more dealing with Xander, Willow and Kennedy. Time for Buffy to move on with her life as a Power That Does!

Review:
Guess what Kennedy: YOU'RE not a Slayer anymore! And Red: All that power you took, YOU JUST LOST IT! Now, its time for Xander to face the music as it were.
Comments from author:
In this 'verse, KenKen never was a true Slayer to begin with...only in her dreams. *grin*

Review:
Willow, you didn't get it. You JUST didn't get it! Now, you are going to pay, and pay big time!
Comments from author:
There were times on the show when I thought she needed a smack upside the head to get something through her skull.

Review of chapter "Chapter 5: Buffy Learns Their Fates" from Obsidian
Review:
Fitting punishments. Great story. Even tho I am a HUGE Xander Fan. Not so much of willow.
Comments from author:
Wow, surprised you'd even read the stories from this series if you're a Xander fan, much less give me praise for them. Thanks.

Review of chapter "Chapter 5: Buffy Learns Their Fates" from magnigriffin
Review:
Like you I have so many issues with 'Empty Places'. I thought the Scoobies were all so incredibly stupid and ungrateful. My own biggest issue with the episode was Anya's speech on how Buffy was given her abilities, how she hadn't earned it and how she was luckier then the rest. My first thought to that was "What the hell??? If she hadn't earned it, then none of them sure as hell had!!!" and then no one defended her, they were all silent, like they were in agreement. Granted, Buffy was had made plenty mistakes of her own, but I always felt that they always held it against her. For example if Buffy had done what Willow had done, killing people horribly and trying to end the world, they never would have forgiven her, yet Willow gets forgiveness and sympathy. All right I know I should end my anti-Scooby rant, but there is just so much to rant about!

It's so nice that somewhere in the fanfic universe they get shown the light or get their comeuppances. They deserve it and I encourage you to do more Scooby bashing or at least give them the ability to think bigger and beyond themselves. Thanks for being a Pro-Buffy voice!!!
Comments from author:
Thanks for the rant. Thrilled to hear that others have the same problems I do. Don't worry, I'll always be a pro-Buffy girl - even if I have to point out her flaws from time to time. I may temper my anger towards the Scoobies, depending on the season the story is in. If it's a post-'Empty Places' story, it's likely to be along same lines as this. I will *not* be convinced that she deserved it, not matter what anyone says!

Review of chapter "Chapter 5: Buffy Learns Their Fates" from Kate
Review:
This was absolutely great. Perfect...although I think the New Wesley would have been a bigger slap to Xander, seeing how Wesley grew and got respect and all...but I loved every chapter. Thank you for the best read I've had on this site.

Kate

Hmm, true, and I didn't mean the one with Lila, I meant when he was the strong leader before Marti Noxon ruined everything. He commanded respect and authority.

I may do one where he leaves, I just need to figure out where to put him. I don't think making him percy would work for that unless he shoots a deatheater on returning home...
Comments from author:
I don't know, it felt better for it to be the geeky version that could satisfy her where he couldn't that seemed the greater insult. Plus New Wesley did some stuff I wasn't completely thrilled about. I understand that he was in a bad place emotionally, but still...freaky sex with Lilah? (shudder!) Course, I think he should have told them to shove it when they came sniffing around for his help later. I love fics where he took off after they left him in the hospital.

I am so glad that the pests are out of our way.
Comments from author:
Yeah. Now I just have to remember to mentioned every so often in Buffy's new and improved life - like once every year or two.

Review of chapter "Chapter 5: Buffy Learns Their Fates" from (Past Donor)AerynSpeedleCaine
Review:
I love how you dealt with Willow, Xander, and Kennedy. Justice well served. Good job yo!

Oh! And as for the Doyle pairing thing? If not Buffy, then how's about Phoebe or Paige? I could see that working too. More likely with Paige than Phoebe, but who knows for certain... Your stories rock by the by!
Comments from author:
Thanks! It felt good to get them out of the way so we don't have to worry about them anymore.

For Doyle, you'll just have to wait until after Clark's secret comes out before I can get to his love life. (evil smirk)

Review of chapter "Chapter 5: Buffy Learns Their Fates" from spring
Review:
I love that the Demon of Fear is afraid of Buffy, it's so cool and extremely funny. I am very eager to see what happens next in this wonderful series.
Comments from author:
ALL demons fear The Slayer. Just because Buffy isn't the current one, doesn't change that fact. Now I'm heading back to Smallville as soon as my betas get finished with the next chapter.

Review of chapter "Chapter 5: Buffy Learns Their Fates" from cryyhavoc
Review:
"If there wasn't so much Xander-worship going on, I wouldn't feel the need to balance it out with my evil wickedness."

You know of course that the mark of an uncreative, medicore, narcistic author is to
bash characters for no other reason than to go against the grain. Poor writing and
anger projection is not a substitute for creativeness in order to garner reviews.
Comments from author:
That doesn't even make sense. If I wanted *good* reviews from a site that is currently very pro-Xander, I'd write him as a hero, not a loser. Unless you're suggesting I enjoy getting negative reviews. BTW, look up the word sarcasm. It was subtle and I was joking. This was a punishment fic, therefore what I write is going to hurt the ones being punished.

You forgot that when they are reincarnated, they have to work their way back from worms to redeem their souls.

Review of chapter "Chapter 5: Buffy Learns Their Fates" from gew
Review:
harsh, punishment, but willow should have known about price of magic. Along with Xander. Kennedy was along for the ride.
Comments from author:
Ah, she was a selfish little brat who would have abused her Slayer powers if she had gotten them. But you are right that she didn't have as many warnings as the other two.

Review of chapter "Chapter 5: Buffy Learns Their Fates" from immortalwizardelffan
Review:
Suggestion!

Since Piper's preggers with Wyatt at this point, maybe Buffy could help Chris when he shows up in a few months? Maybe even give her a new love interest?
Comments from author:
Um, not to nitpick, but are you sure that *this* is the story to add this review?

It would be kind of a short romance don't you think? Wasn't he only there for like a year? But he certainly is yummy enough to match her up with aside from that. Would you mind if I used him as a match for someone else that I might send their way? Can't say who, 'cause it's a teaser.
