Review of chapter "When a Plan Backfires" from ecifrog
Review:
A good cry, misunderstanding, a happy ending.... God I love these kind of stories. And yay for clever Cordy! :)
Comments from author:
They're kind of difficult to get through, but sometimes Musie wants what she wants. And Cordy is great for cutting through the BS.

Review of chapter "When a Plan Backfires" from clarityfades
Review:
Aww...I got my Buffy/Giles but w/o any happiness until the very end. :( Good story, just sad we didn't get to see Buffy & Giles in an actual romantic, loving relationship. & it seemed typical of Willow to use subterfuge w/o thinking things through...though it was Giles' fault as well for not being honest w/ Buffy. I liked that Xander was clueless (b/c he wasn't the best w/ romantic insight :P) & Anya knew exactly how everyone felt. & it was nice to see Joyce more supportive of her daughter. Well done!
Comments from author:
Sorry, I wanted to write more, but it felt awkward for me. Don't get me wrong...I love B/G smoochies and read those stories constantly (within reason), but it's writing smoochies that I have trouble with - regardless of the pairing.

The original story has Anya and Xander in on the plan, but I wanted to go a different way. I just didn't see Giles wanting to let the whole world know how he felt about Buffy. As for Joyce, I figured it was about time she stayed out of it...sort of.

Review of chapter "When a Plan Backfires" from hamrensel
Review:
I love this story. I read part of the story that you mention at the end but I prefer your take on it. I definitely think she wouldn't have gotten between Giles and Willow if that is what they really wanted. I have to say I love the way that you write Buffy. I have read probably 90% of your stories on TtH. I'm a pro-Buffy person too and hate it when people write her to be a big b***h and very selfish. I can't wait to read more of your stories.
Comments from author:
I'll try not to worry which 10% you haven't read (LOL). I figure that there are enough anti-Buffy writers out there, she needs somebody on her side. Don't get me wrong, there are things on the show that pissed me off, but I choose to blame the writers, not her character. That's why I change those things when I can (giggle).

Review of chapter "When a Plan Backfires" from (Recent Donor)Luna
Review:
Nice story. As someone else commented, I could definitely see a plan like that not working out. Only recently have I come across Buffy/Giles stories and they weirded me out at first but secretly, I kinda like them ;)
Comments from author:
As strange as it may seem, the 'ships that weirds me out more are Bangel, Spuffy and Buffy/Xander. The first two because of the vamp angle and Xander...just because he's like a brother - more than Giles is a father. I proudly declare - quietly - that I'm a B/G 'shipper. I also like Buffy/Oz and Buffy/Wes, though.

I really don't see this pairing, but you made it as plausible as possible.
Comments from author:
Thanks...I think. I'll take that as a compliment. LOL.

Review of chapter "When a Plan Backfires" from kimbclar
Review:
I have to admit to being a closest Buffy/Giles shipper. Shhhh! They are not my primary ship but more like a guilty pleasure. Great job!
Comments from author:
I'm with you on that. I prefer Buffy with crossover guys though. No history to deal with that way.

Review of chapter "When a Plan Backfires" from RevDorothyL
Review:
That plan would DEFINITELY backfire in the way you described (Buffy might have been willing to compete against Cordy for Homecoming Queen, or whatever title it was, but to try to take away something that WILLOW wanted? Never. And especially not if it seemed to be what Giles wanted, as well.)
Comments from author:
Thank you. Glad others agree that she isn't a selfish b***h that would stand in the way of her friends' happiness.

Review of chapter "When a Plan Backfires" from (Past Donor)FireDragon
Review:
I love that, because frankly that would have been my reaction I would try to be happy for them and try to hide my misery. I think you got that one right on the head.
Comments from author:
I thought so. Especially when it would be *two* friends and not just one that had a chance at happiness.

Review:
I loved it. I can see how things could spiral out of control so quickly. The best laid plans... Excellent work, yo!
Comments from author:
It's just poor Willow's lot in life to have her plans run amuck. LOL.
