Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from MarcusSLazarus
Review:
The opening circumstances don’t quite work- I don’t see Dean and Buffy as being the type to have a relationship where Willow being a witch could come up and then apparently ‘dismissed’ without Buffy making it clear that Willow isn’t the kind of witch Dean’s faced in the past (They’re both very stubborn people, when you get down to it), but the Willow/Sam dynamic you created generally works, and at least you explained what was up with Dean and brought in an interesting complication into the bargain.

All in all, aside from a wish that you’d featured the Trickster more- explain why he was after Willow in particular, that kind of thing-, interesting job; keep up the good work (Particularly with ‘Crossed Wires’, as I said).
Comments from author:
From what I remember, this is part two or a "follow up" story to one where Dean and Buffy first met. I think this takes place in the early stages of their relationship, before everyone comes clean about everything, but I don't specifically recall. Could be we took liberties in order to be able to "set up" a conflict situation *nods*

Thanks a bunch for sharing your thoughts with us. *Hugs*

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from TwistedSlinky
Review:
Hot, sweet, and beautifully written. I loved this story. I'd never read a Sam/Willow pairing but it works really well. Nice job! And congrats on the CoA nod.
Comments from author:
Glad you liked the pairing, we were surprised at how well it seemed to work too ::grins:: We tried out Sam/Cordy as well more recently, in a ficlet. I think BtVS girls plus SPN boys rock.

Thank you on all counts. *Hugs*

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from ArinnaBlack
Review:
Lovely story. I think that I like Sam/Willow or Dean/Dawn HET pairings more than most others that I've read in Supernatural and Buffy crossovers. For slash, I've never been opposed to Sam/Spike, either.
Comments from author:
Dean and Dawn, huh? Haven't thought of that one, but I hadn't thought of Sam/Willow before this either.

Sam/Spike, that's interesting. I've done a lot of Spike/Dean, but am only writing more Sam recently. I do have a Spike/Dean/Sam - I think my only threesome ever, lol, but it is a sequel to a Spike/Dean.

Interesting... I'll think on these. Thanks for taking the time to give your ideas.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from pezgirl
Review:
great chapter and story

any chance of a sequel?
Comments from author:
Thanks a bunch, glad you liked it.

I don't think we'll have a sequel, but I bet we revisit the pairing *Nods*

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from Kezz
Review:
Fantastic! Just loved it. Love the idea of Buffy and Willow ending up with the Winchester boys. They're like the masculine and feminine versions of each other. More, please?
Comments from author:
I think they make good couples too, like a dream - best friend in love with brothers, works, lol. Not to mention they all know about the things that go in the dark.

This is the end of the story but I'm pretty sure we'll revisit the pairing.

Thanks!

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from (Current Donor)Shieldage
Review:
Oh? Why did the the guy not die when staked?

Heh, my advice: Enchant the trunk of the Impala to be a portal to a closet in Sunnydale. That way Dean gets more trunk space and if they're ever on the road at night, they can just pull over, hop into the trunk and spend the night at a place with loved ones and clean beds. :)
Comments from author:
The Trickster is really hard to kill on the show, no matter what they do/try, the boys fail, so we had them fail here too.

Oooh enchanted trunk. It would be a third crossover, like with Mary Poppins' bottomless bag, lol!

Thanks a bunch for reading.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from (Recent Donor)Anaraine
Review:
Right so... Sam/Willow? Yes, yes, and yes. Lovely pairing. The side Dean/Buffy was also nice to have in the background. Granted, I am also very, very fond of Wincest. Pairings wise. Actually, I'm pretty easy when it comes to pairings. If you can make the relationship sound plausible, and you can write well (which you definitely do) I will keep an open mind and read just about anything. However, I am particularly fond of Faith/Buffy/Dean, and don't get to see much of it, if you're looking for a challenge. :D

Anyways, the story as a whole - I love your writing style. I really think you pegged Willow's personality as well - one of the outstanding quotes in particular being "I was just trying to convince myself that eating alone could be fun... but I'm really not all that convincing. So what do you say? Join me?" It really just strikes to me of Willow. All of the witty babble throughout definitely made me feel like I was reading a transcript of an episode.

Sam's hesitance at the whole killing Willow bit was also appreciated, and the fact that he tried to confirm it was Dean, but was unable to get a perfectly clear answer. I don't feel like I can give really good feedback on Sam. I was drawn into Supernatural by fanfic, and I'm still working my way through season 1. Haven't seen the Trickster yet, either. But anyways, I like his characterization, and I think it fits in well with what I've seen (& read).

And of course, hello smut. We love you smut. Wonderful, wonderful job. Very hot, very intense, and just an all around YUM. Their darker sides touching & mixing (via the spell, and via sex) were also a nice touch. Just. Ah. Watch me drooling over here.

Sam deciding to go off with Dean again was also appreciated. I'm sorry, but I think that brotherhood should trump romantic relationships. And I've read too many things where Sam leaves his brother again, which just makes me irritable. I'm all for the coming back and visiting and lots of hot sex - but Dean & Sam should stick together. And you did just that, and turned me a nice pile of fangirlish goo.

Also? Props for the Jeannie bottle. I watched reruns of I Dream of Jeannie all throughout my childhood. It's nice to have random cameo's for things that you end up attached too from your childhood. It just made me grin.
Comments from author:
Woot glad you enjoyed the Willow/Sam pairing, we were surprised to find out how much we liked it too. The Buffy/Dean side/background, that comes from our prior fic, Inspiration Point.

Oooh threesome ::grins:: Unfortunately, I am not good at writing Faith.

Glad you like our writing style (Catscorner was my co author). In this fic, Cat wrote all the Willow parts *nods*. She's my fave Willow and Cordelia writer.

Your comments regarding characterization are much much much appreciated, thank you very much. And it is wonderful to hear the ending was satisfactory. We didn't think the boys would stop their mission, any more than Buffy would quit hers.

I'm watching reruns of Jeannie too! :)

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Mmm. The het sex was written pretty well. Could be a little more foreplay... and a little more plot connectors or transition scenes/dialog/exposition, but nicely done overall.
Comments from author:
Glad you enjoyed it!

I think you're right on it could have been improved with some more dialogue, etc...

Thanks a bunch!

Review of chapter "Chapter 2" from banner
Review:
That was *scorchingly* erotic.
I'm going to have a shower and a nap. Thank you!
Comments from author:
Heee, we were glad we tried pairing up Sam/Willow, haven't seen much of that and not really a popular pairing. Glad you enjoyed it.

Review of chapter "Chapter 2" from arkeus
Review:
lol, nothing can go right uh?

small nitpick, but if time is stopped/delayed/enclosed how the hell did they call buffy/dean?
Comments from author:
Nope, nothing can, lol.

Erm... uh... ahhh... you got us! LOL Can't think of any reasonable reason, to be honest. Just did not catch that plot hole. Sorry :(

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from arkeus
Review:
poor silly dean :-)

An extremely restrained version of Willow, possibly from the short time she was too afraid to consciously do magic? Though even that is pushing it, as she is the type whose unconscious can do wonky thing like shifting her out of the reality of other people and so on.

And, yeah, one reason i have trouble liking supernatural is that beyond the smart talk of the brothers, they are assholes who are extremely narrow minded and hypocrits.
Comments from author:
heh heh... poor maligned Dean ::grins::

You are psychic in your comments... truly. You'll see what I mean in the chapters to come!

I think Sam is more open minded than Dean, but they have also had less exposure to supernatural beings that are harmless. My two cents about the Supernatural t.v. show in general.
