Review of chapter "Chapter 5: The Farthest Man from Home" from Theodora
Review:
Loved the story and was really glad to discover it finished on fanfiction . net. It would be great if you finished posting it here for others to enjoy. Fantastic portrayal of post-Sunnydale Scoobies and a super!Xander that remains true to his Canon character. I hope you'll return and finish Mind Game as I'd love to see where it ends up.

Thanks for a great read.

Review:
Great! I was always against the whole no killing humans or things with souls thing. Glad Xander adapts a good stance against Buffy's ideology of soul or human equals good. Not that I'd do the killing unless it was necessary, of course. I'm not some psycho serial killer. *shifty eyes*

Review:
Just read this story and loving it. Any chance of it being continued?
Comments from author:
The full story, in its unrevised state, is on fanfiction.net under the same username as the one I use here.

As for finishing it, I don't have the time right now to work on it.

Thanks.

Review:
Finally a story where Xander shows the rest of the scoobies et al how the real world works. I love this. I love that STILL they underestimate him.

The council's idea of leaving even the bad evil human's be is sort of the same as Batman letting the Joker live...and not thinking about the consequences of those actions. any lives or blood spilled after they were let go is on the council's heads.

looking forward to more.

Review of chapter "Chapter 5: The Farthest Man from Home" from Mcspender
Review:
Cool chapter; reading about just how far is Xander willing to go to do the job, was, at moments, hearth breaking, but it shown just how much he has grown up, and knows what the true cost of living a life full of violence from a very young age.
Nice thing introducing the Genius loci concept, it's quite the cliche breaking to introduce old mythological concepts in Buffy Fandom; a lot of times, they just go for the seer or the proverbial prophecy or the deamon(messenger spirit) from the PTB.

Cool chapter, see ya!!.
Comments from author:
I liked how Hellboy threw in a bunch of different concepts from vampires and ghosts to mythical creatures based on folklore. It seems like a much richer base to draw on than, hey, let's make that demon look like a bipedal shark.

As for the City, it's more pulled from science fiction, though it has fantasy genre routes as well. Though, it's not really a protective spirit per se.

Thanks.

Review of chapter "Chapter 4: City Blue" from Mcspender
Review:
So Buffy took a choice again, and it was the wrong one, again. I hope Dawn can learn from her sister mistakes.
And Xander has good political instincts, it seems to me.
Cool thing about the special bullets, but a using a 5.7x28mm FN Five - Seven against a vamp?? Seems kinda underpowered to me, specially in the stopping power area, I would have used a .40mm cal, but I think Xander is using the 20 rounds magazine, so it's about quantity vs. quality trade.

Sorry, got kinda technical there =).

Cool set of chapters, see ya!!.
Comments from author:
It's his standard gun, and it's not going to be the most effective on everything. He chose it mainly for armored targets, but he can change up the rounds if he's going after something specific. Thanks.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3: Of Reasonable Things" from felicia
Review:
I just found this story and I have to say that I've not read any other one like it. Like most people I want to read stories about my favorite character (Xander) being cut and dried. For example, being the one who does everything right by putting the many before himself. Or being shown to be more special than the other Scoobies think he is. However, I don't want to see his flaws put in print. Now, with your story, it drew me in and I don't mind that he is flawed. He knows that he's done things that are not right and is still doing things that he doesn't like. None of the Scoobies are all good and right and they are learning that they are still making mistakes. All the characters are human and not perfect and that is the reason I like this story. Excellent work! Thanks.
Comments from author:
To me, it's not about making them flawed. It's that, at this point at least, they should be aware of their flaws and strive to do better.

Thanks.

Review of chapter "Chapter 2: Laying of Hands" from HolyKnight
Review:
Darn interesting evolution of this story. Seems that the Watchers's Council may finally sing its death Knell, as the new Paranormal Bureau of the US its born.....
