Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Moderator)Kiwikatipo
Review:
oh I didn't expect Buffy's friend to turn out to be that one, it really surprised me

a very poignant little story

I don't think Buffy would EVER let her hair go grey unless she was depressed so it all added to the pathos
Comments from author:
Mucho internal debate about the grey hair...then like you say it added to the pathos

Thank-you,
DaveT.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)Sulien
Review:
Lovely story to which I can relate all too easily, unfortunately. I'm glad Faith came in and pulled Buffy out of her maudlin reminiscing. Buffy's attitude has aged her as much as time and injury and it's good that she got that little boost to hopefully get her moving and involved in life again.

Edited for reply: LOL! You're more than welcome to do so and change the wording however you like.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from CPTSkip
Review:
I always thought Those Were The Days was one of the most melancholy songs ever written. And I thought your story was melancholy right up to the end. Depend on Faith to kick-start Buffy again. Always leave the audience with a little hope. Lol!
Comments from author:
Old Russian gipsy song I'm told.

Yes, always try to finish on an up beat note, just like the song.

Apart when she was trying to kill people, I always thought Faith had a better handle on the entire slayer thing.

Cheers,
DaveT.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from JoeDineen
Review:
Poignant, good piece of writing, a couple of misplaced words (where they word sounds similar to the one you wanted but is not the same). I liked it overall.
Comments from author:
Homophones I think they're called, damn pesky things! They're like lice you never seem to get rid of all of them. Today I wrote stairs instead of stares!

Glad you enjoyed.

Cheers,
DaveT.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)mmooch
Review:
Very maudlin fic. But it was nice that although Buffy was old, she was still able to take care of the vamp - even if it was without her usual quips. Shows that she grew at least a little wiser; knowing that it was better just to stake the vamp rather than risk it winning in a fight. And I'm glad that she had at least Faith to visit with. Loved the bit about Giles dying of natural causes. Now if that can be said of the Scoobies and the Chosen Two.
Comments from author:
Its a fic that has been in my mind for ages, and I just happened to be in the frame of mind to write it.

thanks for reviewing.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Moderator)acs
Review:
That's a bit sad. Poor Buffy living by herself and what happened to the others.

But it's a gem of a short fic. We very rarely get a glimpse into Buffy or Faith's life if they manage to live that long.

Sort of reminds me of FreeWrite's MASH crossover - "A house by the Cove." even if the end is the opposite.
Comments from author:
I remember that fic, thought it was rather good myself.

'gem of a short fic' THANKS! Glad you enjoyed.

Cheers,
DaveT.

Review:
Very sweet short story. I liked the touch with Faith's hair and the consequences of mentioning it. I look forward to reading your next story.
