Review of chapter "Blackmail Is Such A Dirty Word - ch 5/5" from ColBlack
Review:
While I like the Xander/Jack interaction, I feel you are using S6/7 characterisations rather than S3. Buffy reacting with such violence is not what I expect, if anything Buffy's fault in early seasons is not using enough violence soonest, i.e. her leaving Angelus and Faith for as long as possible. Post-graduation is actually the point when I think it would be least bad for Buffy to find out about the lie, considering that Angel had just left her leaving her annoyed at him, Xander was the one who had led the students in the battle, and now with the Mayor dead and Faith in a coma there is a lot less pressure on her so she can relax and can cope with bad news being delivered. Willow at this point is not one for causing pain, and she is very limited in her use of magic, not much more than very basic levitation.

On the other hand, has you set this to happen in Seasons 6 or 7 then I would be completly fine with this fic and the charecterisations, by that point Buffy especially is more willing to take extreme measures and is much more "I am the Slayer, we do things my way or else," and is more likely to blame Xander for breaking her the 'One True Love' between her and Angel, consdering how she felt about Riley by this point and the way she was using Spike.

So neat idea, but I feel you picked the wrong point to place it after.

I don't think you're seeing the situation the same way I am.

You're just coming out of a situation in which you pretty much expect to die, you're coming down from a major adrenaline rush and someone comes up and tells you how your best friend betrayed you, stabbed you in the back. You're going to react on instinct; you want to hurt what hurt you i.e. Xander.

Review:
really interesting idea.
i love the interaction between jack and xander and xander with the stargate crew.
not too sure about the buffy/willow reaction to finding out about the "the lie" doesn't really ring true for willow...maybe buffy's reaction, but not willow's. hell, it's your story you can make them do whatever you want.
anyway, i enjoyed the stargate parts more than the "buffy and willow are morons" parts

Review of chapter "Blackmail Is Such A Dirty Word - ch 1/5" from Gideon
Review:
Nice try, the concept was interesting and your dialog was good but most of the characters felt a little one dimensional to me. maybe the story could have been a bit longer and not felt as rushed. I look forward to seeing what you produce in future.

Review:
Very good story. I especially liked Xander's taunting of Jack. From your replies to reviews, I see that there is a sequel and possibly a third story in the works. Any time line for the release? Thanks.

Review of chapter "Blackmail Is Such A Dirty Word - ch 5/5" from trongod
Review:
This really cries out for a few more chapters, such as what the reactions of Joyce and Giles once they finish reading Xander's book, which I would assume is a journal detailing the facts of his life, warts and all. The following explosions on Giles from Joyce would be fun to read, and then the dusting of Brain Dead and Her Butt Kissing Redhead Friend could commence from two directions.
So can you be persuaded to take up the banner of The Late And Lively Zeppo In Space?
Comments from author:
That is the companion piece which my editor is currently going over. I should get a lot of flames for that fic. And then my 3rd story in this series will cover Xander in Space

I just finished... well it's not exactly a sequel but more of a companion piece and it's at my editor. Unfortuately my editor was recently bitten by her Muse so it might be a little bit for she gets it done.

Review of chapter "Blackmail Is Such A Dirty Word - ch 5/5" from Razial
Review:
oh this was good very good. I alwasy like a fic that is not afraid to show buffy and willow for the idiots they truly are well done. This had some good humours moments and the little back history of fraiser was really well done. Don;t listen to the people who complained about this fic, it is your work and your effort and you did well.

Comments from author:
Thanks. I'm not a big fan of Saint Buffy and Saint Willow but I tried to stick in character when I wrote this fic. And I honestly believe that Buffy would lash out at Xander after the battle if she had learn the truth.
