Review of chapter "Chapter Ten" from Godogma
Review:
I agree with the last person who reviewed; I read the first one and I'm just not interested in homosexual Xander or Homosexual Harry or anything involving either of them or most of the fully hetero male characters from any show suddenly going gay. Glad I can give this one a miss just based on the warning.

The first fic was somewhat repetitive but fairly good but I'm not even willing to read this one. Thanks for the warning.
Comments from author:
This is one of those type of reviews that I find myself unsure how to respond - I guess I don't have to reply to every review, but I like to, because as a reader myself I like it when an author responds.

So, anyway, glad the warning helped.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Downery
Review:
Thanks for the warning about Xander. Just for that you get 10 rating for this chapter. Read stories that weren't labelled correctly and didn't have any warnings and suddenly i'm reading a gay makeout session halfway through the story. Also saves me the time that i would've wasted reading this story.

Enjoyed the ride but having the main character having buttsecks is something i don't enjoy reading even if it's a one night stand.
Comments from author:
No problem (on the warning thing) I've also ended up in fanfics that didn't have proper warnings, and it can be very annoying.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from darkflog
Review:
Just read the first book, I thought it was rushed and repetitive in a few places, but I really liked it. Overall, your writing is solid, but I think it will be some time before I try and tackle this one. Reading about Xander and Harry showing interest in doing guys it's just not my cup of tea, even if it's on the side. By the middle of the first story I was hoping Harry would end with someone like Tara. This change on their preferences surprised me, but not so much because I can see now that you were already sending some vibes this way. Perhaps you should think on include a warn about this in your Season One. Kudos for the story.
Comments from author:
Well, I'm glad that despite certain issues that you did like the story.

As for the interest in guys over the course of the series when I started I thought it would mostly be Harry, but as events played out Harry seems to be having less homosexual experiences then Xander. Though in season three Harry will at least have one (outside of his crush on Penn anyway) while Xander will finally have none.

Anyway, in season two, Xander does have three homosexual experiences (in addition to a relatively long-term hetrosexual relationship) so all things considered it might not be your cup of tea, though (if it helps) I have no plans for Xander to end up in a homosexual relationship, at least as far as this series is concerned. In fact, in this series Xander may end up single.
(For the record, one of the experiences happens off-screen, but is shown to be a very bad thing. Another happens when Xander is druck and still dealing with the bad thing. And the last one is in the context of a threesome, and all the acts themselves are mostly off-screen.)

Finally, I love that you mention Harry/Tara, because I have toyed with the idea of writing that pairing, not (obviously) for this series, but more then once over the course of writing this series I've actually come to kind of like the idea of Harry/Tara.

Review of chapter "Chapter Ten" from Ansku
Review:
I really like your ending of this season :)
Comments from author:
I'm glad to hear that, because I almost put the first scene of season three after the last scene of season two, but I felt that the scene that ended season two was a good place to end it, so I'm glad to know someone else thought so, as well.

Review of chapter "Chapter Ten" from kaleecat
Review:
Just caught up with this. A bit sad at the end, I don't blame Xander for hanging on to the idea of what his mother could have been but it's good he realized the truth. Still it's odd he tried to do it alone, he should know better.
I'm glad Xander & catherine's relationship ended. It was one thing that I never really bought into, opinion wise not writing wise.
Poor Penn. And I hope we see a bit more Harry next season.
Comments from author:
Xander doing the deed on his own was basically all me. I just felt that was something Xander needed to do on his own if he was going to have any hope of moving on, and I needed him to be able to move on, so he had to do it.

Xander/Catherine - I'm glad that it wasn't the writing that caused you to have problems buying into it. Personally, I admit that I like Xander/Catherine, and probably wouldn't have broken them up, but for story reasons (as I said in story notes) I needed them not to be together for a little while.

Anyway, yes, Harry will have a slightly larger part in season three, though this is still a Xander story (obviously), but Harry has a story that I always planned to play with before the end.

In a fun twist, I just posted the first chapter of season three today. *grin* Alas the first chapter of season three doesn't have any Harry - it's pretty much Catherine and Xander, but not together.

Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from calikocat
Review:
...holy crap! Jessica Harris is a vamp now? Damn. I never ever would have seen that coming. >>; And I'm a dork for not checking up on you sooner. I just happened to be going through my trackings here and hey look at that the sequel is up and running. dork me. *sigh* Farm life and college own my sou. bleh.

I'm tracking this one now so I won't miss any more updates. ^^
Comments from author:
Oh, wow, I'm sorry it's taken me so long to reply. I've been busy trying to move my website... It's currently on Geocities (where it's been for years), but Geocities has decided to kill the free sites, so I've been busy moving, and because I decided to use a journal system to host things this time I'm having to go through and remove massive amounts of html coding. *sigh*
(It's especially annoying on the pages that I used an html coder instead of hand coding, because my html coder added WAY more code than was necessary.)

*coughs*

Anyway, on to something you might find more interesting.

When I started this I realized I needed an "outside" villian for Season Two, because there weren't really any hints of supernatural activity in CSI's season nine - none that I could see anyway, and to insert something native to Las Vegas would change the official CSI canon more than I wanted, even more than leaving Warrick alive and therefore a certain killer running free did. So, that was when I decided to have Xander stay in Sunnydale just long enough to encounter Dracula, and allow everything to spin-off from that.
(Though I did consider, briefly, just having some random vamp turn his mother.)

And I don't think you're a dork, not anymore than the rest of us anyway.

Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from winnie
Review:
very interesting chapter, what a switch
looking forward to the next
Comments from author:
Oh, yeah, it really sucks to be Xander right now. *evil grin*

The next chapter won't be posted as quick as this one was, but I'm hopeful that it won't take me forever to get it ready either.

Review of chapter "Chapter Five" from (Current Donor)Shieldage
Review:
Whoa. As of mid-2009 Nevada is a girl-only prostitution zone, paying men for sex is still 100% illegal in all parts of the state. 8/

... Oh. That explains that Six Feet Under episode.

Heh, there's a movement to get that law changed ... because of the recession ...

Life is weird.


Good story. Shame about Lady Heather's daughter.
Comments from author:
Interesting. I did not know that, and I hope it becomes legal to pay men, I mean it's only fair, but at the time of this fanfic it is still illegal to pay anyone for sex.

As for Lady Heather's daughter, I want to point out that I didn't kill her, CSI did that back in 2006 (I believe, and you probably know that, but I just want to point out that if it had been up to me I wouldn't have given her a daughter period), but I decided to use that to flesh out Lady Heather's character a bit here, and so that Xander's story would feel much more personal to her.

Thanks for reading and reviewing.
