Review of chapter "Hey there Delilah" from BuffyKaibaHunt
Brilliant! I like it - especially this part:

“Hey there…Delilah,” Dwight hissed, his eyes narrowed, and Pearl stiffened, quickly beginning to inch towards the door. She knew full well that what it meant when her father called her by that name.

It wasn’t her name, of course; her name was Pearl Eleanor. He had gotten the nickname from the Delilah of the Bible, and now, whenever he was mad at Pearl, that was what he would call her.

She was just like her, he had told Pearl time and time again. All women were, with their seductive wiles and betrayals… they would use their charms to lure you in and then once you trusted them, they would stab you in the back. Always trying to hurt you, always taking off on you, they were good for nothing, her father said repeatedly.

Hmm... Pearl's dad reminds me of Augusta Gein, the mother of American murderer Ed Gein (August 27, 1906 – July 26, 1984), as they both have something in common; they think women are sinful, and will use their charms to stab men in the back. Augusta, as I remember from watching the A&E Biography about Ed Gein on my laptop, would often read from the book of Revelation in the Bible, mostly the parts where it said that women were whores, women were tramps, and basically that women were supposedly evil. (I myself don't see my kind – women and girls – that way at all.)

Awesome chapter. :)

Review of chapter "Music of the night" from BuffyKaibaHunt
Awesome! Very brilliant, too. And I agree - even as a child and teenager, Eliza always played children from broken homes… and yet her own seems pretty loving and solid. However, her parents did get a divorce when Eliza was a baby, and yet she says she is very close to her mother and her brothers.

“See, when I was a kid I used to beg my mom for a dog. Didn’t matter what kind. I just wanted, you know, something to love. A dog’s all I wanted. Well, that and toys. But mom was so busy, you know, enjoying the drinking and passing out parts of life, that I never really got what I wanted.”

Review of chapter "Childhood dreams" from BuffyKaibaHunt
Very brilliant and creative, as well as inspiring. :) I especially like this part:

“You can be whoever you want to be…”

Yeah right. Why the hell do they tell that to kids? Between that and the Santa Claus thing, no wonder they grow up depressed losers. People give them all these starry-eyed hopes and then real life comes down on them, bound to screw a kid up a little.

Faith bets B believed it…she bets she was this little pigtailed blondie princess type who thought she’d be a ballerina, fairy godmother, actress, singer, and then become a queen when her Prince Charming swept her off her feet. Must have been a shock to the kid when she ended up with demon guts and gore, sacred duty bullshit, and a broody dead guy with fangs instead of some rich guy to whisk her away into happy ever after land.

She guesses she was lucky in that way… she knew it was bullshit even as a kid. Hadn’t her mom slammed that into her enough for it to stick, that she wasn’t going anywhere or doing anything because she was totally worthless?

Very neat and awesome! :) (However, I noticed a mistake where "gone" was supposed to be "gore". Luckily, I fixed it for you.)
Keep up your super-neat, very brilliant and coolly phenomenal writing! :)

Review of chapter "Get mine, get yours" from BuffyKaibaHunt
Neat! Very awesome as well as very well-written, too. :) I like it, especially this part:

Then why did she find herself staring at the wall when they were gone, scrubbing herself in the shower afterward until she was raw? Why did she dream of faceless, nameless things attacking her and wake up looking for someone near to reassure her, when she knew no one was there? Why did she always feel so entirely alone after being as close to another human as was possible to get?

I can imagine Faith asking herself those questions, and maybe writing them down in a journal sometime, too. :)
Keep up your super-neat, very creative and phenomenally beautiful writing! :)

Review of chapter "Conversations with my thirteen-year-old self" from BuffyKaibaHunt
Wow! Very awesome and creative, as well as very well-written, too. :) I like it, especially this part:

Screw it… wasn’t there some ghost way she could go back and give herself a list, something like this…

1. When you turn 14- or hey, maybe now, 13’s a good age too- go get a Norplant. It’s the only way to go, kid. Condoms break, pulling out is bullshit, and you’re too out of it and hungover in the morning to remember pills. So go get a Norplant, ‘cause it’ll save you a few trips to get kids sucked out of you the hard way.

2. Guys, they’re not going after you because they see into your soul or they like you for who you are or want to spend time with you, or any of that other starry-eyed bullshit. They want to screw you, literally and otherwise. So go ahead and let them, don’t bother with the good girl virgin stick. Just make sure you’re screwing them over first.

3. Guys think with their dick, not their brains. Use that to your advantage as early and for as long as you can. Hey, you’re a hot chick at thirteen even if you’re jailbait, and you’re only gonna get better with age. So play it with all you got.

4. Like I said, you ain’t gonna be young and hot as long as you want to be, so pull no it up and don’t give a shit who cares.

Very neat, as well as very deep and well-written, too. :)
Keep up your super-neat, very cool and phenomenally beautiful writing! :)

Review of story "Something to sing about: Dushku Character Ficlets" from Cutiepie
Um . . . oops? This chapter was supposed to be included in Comalies, not this story. No wonder I felt like I had missed something, not remembering the conversation with Tara telling Buffy that Faith loved her. I had missed something, this whole chapter.
Comments from author:
ohhhh! sorry! wow lol...what a screw up. I fixed it in Comalies, now I'll just delete this
