Review of chapter "It’s Hard to Shrug While Pinned to a Car Hood" from breve
i'm trying not to read the the other reviews for spoilers, but i really can't wait to see buffy teach anita a lesson. and i haven't even read the entire series because it pissed me off too much.

Review of chapter "Scooby Meeting #350,338" from breve
I read your first author's note and I HAD to read this.
Like you, I absolutely loved the first few books of the anita blake series.
Unlike you, I couldn't stand reading once they introduced yet another love interest.
Micah was the last book I read, and I have no intention of reading any more.
Can't wait to continue with this story though.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from (Recent Donor)Listener
Beautiful work. You win one Internet. Ive been viciously ambivalent toward Hamilton for four books now, and she recently announced on Twitter that none of Anita's lovers die in the next book... AAAAAARGH!!!

Anyway, I might have wanted to see one of Buffy's people die, to even the odds a bit, but if this is truly a "call Hamilton out on her bullshit" story, then I guess I understand.

Overall: awesome. I'll be bookmarking this to retread after I read "Kiss the Dead" and Anita gets three new lovers and six more metaphysical abilities.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from Kaleidofox
Awww, as depressing as Asher is, I actually like him....

And Nathaniel is sort of everyone's pawn, as well as Jason. They could easily be turned to the power of good. Maybe. They are like minions, and for some reason I can see Andrew teaching them the art of "minion-ship" under the slayers, using a spatula to enforce if necessary...

And does this mean Buffy is with Spike now or are they just friends? 'Cause I know she is loyal and all, but she was way impulsive about getting him back, and you only do that when it involves someone you love.

And when Whistler said it involves Spike and Xander, it made me automatically think of a new triumvirate...

Ad oh please don't have Edward and Bernardo working to help Anita!!!! I mean, Edward only really liked her because she posed a challenge, but if someone else took her out, wouldn't that show the other person has proven to be a greater challenge? ...I dunno, I just like Edward...

Anyway, I love the story and cannot wait for the sequel!!

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from MavenAlysse
**** Regarding votes (that I did not mention in the last chapter):

Asher got SIX ‘Kill’ votes and (drumroll, please!): 18 ‘Redeem’ Votes! I was ambivalent on Asher but clearly you all wanted him to live, so he got to live :)

Nathaniel got THREE ‘Kill’ votes and (drum roll please!): 7 ‘Redeem’ Votes! He lost all of his hair but at least he got to stay alive ;)

Jason got ONE ‘Kill’ vote and (drum roll please!): 3 ‘Redeem’ Votes! No one seemed to have anything against Jason, so yay for him, he gets to live. *****

Humnnn... well, technically, though they are alive, they aren't redeemed, 'cause they still want to get their revenge for getting busted. No lesson learned or leaves turned over. I really enjoyed the story, though, I have to admit, the end was a bit of a let-down because I was thinking like Buffy 'we got the Vamps on the run and are no longer hunted by the government - so, epic win' and then you threw in the whole Edward/Death and 'what can be done, can be undone' bit. Made me sad. I wanted to revel in the satisfaction of Jean Claude [van dam] being dust and the Scoobies triumphant. 'Course, now that I know there's going to be sequels (and that Spike's Master of the City and Xander's Oba) I'm bouncing in my seat to see how the gang's gonna deal with what's being tossed at them now. So - two thumbs way up, a Scooby dance, and a big cookie just for you!

Thanks for sharing!

Comments from author:
Yeah... I realized too late that there were only 2 categories - Kill and Redeem- and I realized I couldn't redeem everyone because it just didn't seem in their character at the time. So I smudged and took that to mean they get to live, b/c I knew I was going to do a series.

I'm really glad that you enjoyed the story and I'm sorry about the little twist at the end! I just wanted to properly set up for the next story.

But I'm glad you're excited for the next one! It's currently on hold as I work on my HP x-over but it'll be my next project. Thank you for the thumbs and dance and cookie!! It is much appreciated! :D

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from JoeB
It's funny, I usually don't like bash fics, or fics that have Xander dealing with his inner hyena..

I've never read a Anita Blake book, and the couple of fan fics I've purused have not in any way inspired me to go out and buy one to read.

That being said, I enjoyed this. The action scenes were well written. I like what you did with the various characters. The ones you redeemed themselves, and the ones that didn't, were consistant and believable.

I think I'm going to wait until you are a couple of chapters in before I start reading the next part of this series. But I am looking forward to it.

Thanks for sharing.

Thank you JoeB! I am especially proud that you enjoyed this, since it included some features that aren't normally your forte.

Thank you for your feedback, I appreciate it :)

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from deathsjennesa
I so hope Edward is on Buffy's side and isn't there to get revenge on what happened to Anita. I can't wait till the squeal comes out. Good story so far.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from vedranempress
If it wasn't obvious yet, I really enjoyed reading your story. Glad to know you're planning a sequel. And as Xeelia said, I loved watching Anita lose everything! I can't stand the books any more and every reason why was highlighted in this fic!

Great job!

As for the circle of power between Spikey, Xander and Buffy... uh... well... no comment. Any comment I make will be extremely biased as I am not a Xander fan, specially considering that Xander and Spike are BtVS' milder version of JC and Richard. But you're the author. Go where your muse takes you.

Good luck to future fics!
Comments from author:
Thank you vedranempress! I definitely have appreciated all your comments and I am so glad you enjoyed the story :)

As for the circle... Hmmm- Never thought of Xander and Spike as the milder version, but I see it. Huh. I will say that my mind is crazy and whatever happens, it will be a fun trip :) I hope you'll stick around to see what happens in the sequel :D

Thank you!!

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from MrMann
Very good. I only have a passing knowledge of Anita Blake, and you did a very good job in make sure I could follow the story. I look foreword to the squeal.
Comments from author:

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from Xeelia
Great story and I can't wait for the sequel!! So....If you hadn't guessed I'm a HUGE Dawn fan and so I'm hoping that there will be more for her in the sequel...maybe a love interest? Spike needs love too!! Buffy and Richard should be explored, I think now that he's free and stuff they might make a good couple. Faith needs to find out Robin is cheating and go for the Wicked Truth!!!!!! OK so there's my two cents!

Oh and I agree with the other poster...please don't have a new triumptive, it would be more interesting to show how solid team work works better than "borrowing" other's powers.

Great work!!
Comments from author:
Yay! Thank you so much for your kind words!
Ok, I totally love Dawn too (all thanks to curiouslywombat of course) and would love to have more of her! She will definitely get a love interest and she will definitely have a new friendship with someone from Anitaverse. Spike does need love, and so do Buffy and Richard. I'm trying to figure out what the new, improved Richard will be like 3 months after cutting off ties with Anita and JC

And I never intended, at the beginning of the story, to feature the Wicked Truth and that they would be so deliciously fun. Otherwise, I totally would not have made it so she and Robin were still dating. Ah! So now I'm debating whether or not Faith will get any wicked fun... ;)

Thank you for ALL the feedback!!!!!

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from SassyFrass
Very nice ending. I'm assuming that Buffy, Spike and Xander are going to have to form some kind of triumverate?
Looking forward to the sequel.
Comments from author:
Thank you! And... If Buffy decides to listen to the Powers That Be, then yes :)
