Review of chapter "Family Legacy" from Gideon
Cool story. I like how it is just a subtle change that doesn't affect much. And I loved Buffy and her Mother arguing over science vs magic. I was wondering why Joyce had let Buffy get put in the mental institution if she had experience with the supernatural herself. So will Giles be able to figure out what the book says, or will that have to wait till they meet Daniel Jackson?
I bet Willow is going to miss Buffy's ears though!
Comments from author:
Don't worry, Buffy's ears will be back, eventually.

Meeting Daniel Jackson isn't in the cards for a while, as the storyline is currently laid out. The gang has to make it thru high school first, which, at the rate I'm writing this story, will happen some time in the next decade or two.

Review of chapter "Family Legacy" from (Current Donor)vidicon
I so badly want a continuation of this I can almost taste it...Wonderful. A lot of valid points have been made in other reviews and I've got little to add except please continue!
Comments from author:

I do plan to continue this, though as of right now I haven't quite come up with an idea solid enough to hang the next installment on. It'll probably involve Angel since I can't completely ignore his presence in Sunnydale. And probably something about Dawn's Halloween experience. But that's all I have so far.

Review of chapter "Family Legacy" from CPTSkip
Excellent story, thanks for sharing. I liked the way Joyce was also touched by the weirdness that is the Summers' family. With Dawn also being The Key, I bet she will also get "eary" later in life. Lol! I was amused by the way Giles only considered Buffy's ancestors from the supernatural side and not from a possible alien side of things. I also liked the way Joyce got or produced the pop references. She was a bit of a sexy geek in her younger days, as we know from Band Candy. Lol! I look forward to more of this amusing series.

Review of chapter "Family Legacy" from JoeDineen
A thought occurred to me when you made reference to the Furlings, I wonder if Morgoth was a Goa'uld, that would be a scary dude.

While I am reallt enjoying the story and overall it was well told, I think there was too much "Buffy's Mom" as a appellation in the dialog in the middle of that chapter, there is nothing wrong in calling her Joyce.

Edit: I have a couple of responses, one the pov chance was such that I did not really notice in the first read through and not that different afterward. I'm not sure a pov shift is called for.
Also, even if it is from Willow's pov you are still directly reporting the scene and Joyce flows more normally or even Mrs. Summers would be better than the repeated use of Buffy's Mom.

On re-read, I wonder what else does this ring do? (it is not one of those rings?... is it?)
Comments from author:
That is an awkward bit. I'll freely admit it. Almost threw it out completely but I needed what's in it in the story.

(I tried that, calling her Joyce, but that scene was from Willow's pov and it didn't seem very realistic for Willow at that point to think of Buffy's mother as 'Joyce'.)

Review of chapter "Family Legacy" from (Current Donor)Tempi
Very interesting story (and series) so far. I look forward to reading more.

Too bad Dawn is not Joyce's youngest daughter, but Buffy's eldest daughter... ;-)
Comments from author:
Shhhhh!! :-)

(I really haven't decided how/if/when to deal with Dawn's Key potential but you make an interesting point.)

Review of chapter "Family Legacy" from (Recent Donor)MissingAuthor
Bloody cool way you worked Stargate into the story. Great work with everyone's personalities and just love Buffy's and Joyce's conversation, especially how magic kept cropping up.

Comments from author:
Thanks :-).

Poor Joyce. She has no problem with being an alien (at least at this point in her life) but magic? She's going to be in for a shock at some point.

(I can actually seeing her understanding "science" more than magic, even if she can't "do" any science. She grew up in the 70's/60's when we had an active space program and people were landing on the moon. Science was very "real" back then to ordinary people. We hadn't all become such skeptics of the benefits of science.

Review of chapter "Family Legacy" from AllenPitt
I can't remember now. So the Furlings were NOT the ones they visited that one time where the actor who also played Principal Snyder showed up as an alien? That was one of the other races? Too bad!
Bet the Asgard would get all excited. Hm, post high school, an Asgard ship in orbit just might 'spot' her....
Sgt. Fury? Neat. Hopefully he'll keep his commando type skills & not have them all fade away in S4... (I always thought they did that so he wouldn't be in competition with Riley who's contribution to the team was being Soldier Guy)--
Comments from author:
He was one of the Nox ( see: ).

Fury made more sense for this Xander incarnation than just some random "soldier guy" like he was in the series. But Fury pre-Superspy when he was "just" an ordinary commando.

No one knows what the Furlings look like (except for the other 3 ancient races - Asgard, Nox, and the Ancients) so they are perfect to use for this :-)

Review of chapter "Native" from CrystalBlaze
Native, indeed.

Once Kendra the Vampire Slayer is known to them, this could make more sense.

The Hellmouth needs a permanent Slayer presence due to active and imminent threats; The Master, Acathla, the Mayor, Glory, and so forth.

The world, as always, needs the Slayer.

The Powers arranged for a non-demonic crossbred potential to activate, knowing the nature of the Power itself would result in the Slayer essence moving on. And Fate was served through the stubborn pride of one Alexander Lavelle Harris, CPR and her then latent Elvish power not only allowing her to revive but reain the powers of the Slayer when Kendra was busily adjusting to being the true Slayer.

Or, to quote a certain comedian, of course I could be wrong.
Comments from author:
It's an interesting idea that hadn't occurred to me (Using Buffy's dual nature to explain away her keeping her slayer abilities) though I've read other stories using something similar as a plot device.

Unfortunately for Kendra, I already have a future story involving Faith started, so things don't look good for her survivability, though at the rate I'm going it could be years before I get to it.
