Review of chapter "Chapter 8: Stronger" from bradsan
Review:
I like the idea from Sassyfrass and why bother the complains from reviewers about bashing the Scoobies. Lets face it, nothing you write can be untrue. They need somebody to tell them what was wrong with their attitude. Buffy didn't have a clean sheet but she always tried and she doesn't blame somebody else when something went wrong. more the opposite.
I always thought it was sad that they became from best friends to what they were now. And Xander started it with his little lie "Willow said, kick his ass". that was the first crack. And Dawn, I don't no. If my sister or brother jumps to save me and her thanks are the words then you can't stay here. Let me tell you, I would "kick" her ass and I would tell the people in my house that they could find another place to live and get the hell out of my house which I'm paying the bills for. Buffy wasn't a saint but at least she tried. The rest of them lived their own life's and didn't do anything to make it easier. Giles abandoned her, Willow gets addicted to magic and wanted to end the world, Xander left Anya at the wedding and Anya couldn't face it and became vengeance again. When Buffy had to kill Anya Xander didn't want that but with Angel he was the first to tell her that she wasn't strong enough to kill Angel and that it was her duty to do it. Hypocrite much. How many lives did Anya took. Dawn always complained and stuff instead of trying to make it easier and don't let me start on Faith.
They are lucky that Buffy didn't became dark. Shows how strong Buffy was.

okay now I'm bashing the Scoobies and I wanted to read it after you wrote it. Darn.

Good writing but then again I like most of you're stories, so not a suprise
Comments from author:
No worries, I'll never complain when somebody want to bash the Scoobies - as long as they leave Buffy out of it.

Thanks for all the reviews.

Review of chapter "Chapter 2: Concrete Angel" from BuffyKaibaHunt
Review:
Wow. :) This is really good, and very well-written as well. Plus, I like the song Concrete Angel, and Martina McBride had the right idea, especially when she sings it now. (She once said that the song is a true story - it was about her niece, whose mother and father split one day. As a result Martina's niece's mother (who was also Martina's sister) started abusing her own daughter, and Martina's niece was murdered one day. The song was dedicated to McBride's niece's memory.)

Keep up your super-neat, very cool and phenomenally creative writing! :)
Comments from author:
Thanks for the compliments.

Wow, can't say I'm surprised it's a true story, but that's really sad.

Review of chapter "Chapter 8: Stronger" from BuffyKaibaHunt
Review:
Brilliant! :) I especially like the last part. It's really neat, too. :)
Comments from author:
Thanks. Adding a non-country song sorta screwed up the flow, but the song's message was too perfect to worry about the genre.

Review of chapter "Chapter 8: Stronger" from nightshadowlife
Review:
aww I love it. Would be great to see a story of Buffy finding herself again with the help of the ones not invovled with her destruction.
Comments from author:
I may consider a follow-up fic of Buffy and Oz in the future, but it will have to wait for a little while.

Review of chapter "Chapter 8: Stronger" from SassyFrass
Review:
Yay for Buffy/Oz!
Though, I would have loved to have seen the reactions once Buffy actually left, and Wes and Cordy started in on them.
Comments from author:
Ehh, then I would have to worry about hearing people complain that I'm bashing them - not that they are happy now anyway. But at least at this point, it is mostly just from Buffy's standpoint and that's acceptable for most people.

Review of chapter "Chapter 8: Stronger" from RevDorothyL

Nice! And a very appropriate note to end on, both musically and emotionally.

Review of chapter "Chapter 8: Stronger" from spk
Review:
Loved the way you handled this chapter in flashbacks. Perfect ending of the chapter, but the fact that it was the end of the story kind of caught me off guard. I would have loved to see more Buffy/Oz because I love that pairing (as friends or lovers). :)
Comments from author:
I may consider a non-songfic follow up for this later.

Review of chapter "Chapter 8: Stronger" from (Recent Donor)ConstanceTruggle
Review:
Beautiful ending. I loved it, and I loved that you pulled in Second Stringers to kick the starting lineup's collective ass.

CT.
Comments from author:
LOL. Would hate to be around to hear Cordy's reaction to being called second string.

Review of chapter "Chapter 8: Stronger" from clarityfades
Review:
Perfect ending! I loved that Buffy ignored the Scoobies as they went into their usual rants...& I adored that Buffy didn't give into Dawn's emotional blackmail. You know my feelings on Dawn. LOL & darn! No possession for Giles, I figured it was a long shot--but my Buffy/Giles Slayer/Watcher partnership love had to keep some hope alive. Glad to see Cordy & Wes rip into the Scoobies (& glad that Buffy didn't stick around for it either). Oh, & perfect ending...Buffy running into Oz just as she leaves the Hyperion. I'm fanwanking that they fall in love & live happily ever after w/o the Scoobies (perhaps after wrenching control of the Council from the Scoobs--since I don't think they can be trusted w/ it). :D
Comments from author:
Yeah, as much as I like the Watcher/Slayer togetherness bit, Giles doesn't get forgiveness this time. That way there isn't anyone standing between Buffy and Oz. And if the Council can survive Travers and Co., it can certainly survive these guys.

Review of chapter "Chapter 7: Don’t You Ever Get Tired Of Hurting Me" from RevDorothyL
Review:
Heart-twisting, again!

But thanks for ending this chapter with Cordy and Wes reaching out to Buffy in a non-judgmental way, not to mention Oz's smile-line: ". . . he was coming off a little stalkerish. At least she was used to that with the men in her life."
Comments from author:
The next chapter should be less heart-twisting. Glad you're enjoying this.

Review of chapter "Chapter 7: Don’t You Ever Get Tired Of Hurting Me" from hamrensel
Review:
I was surprised to see another Scoobies song but this one fits really well. I cant wait for the next chapter.
Comments from author:
Well, like I said, this was what the story was originally supposed to be based on. The other songs just sprang up.

Review of chapter "Chapter 7: Don’t You Ever Get Tired Of Hurting Me" from UniilaDellaLuna
Review:
me likes, so far you've picked some really good songs that fit. Gotta say my fav line so far is this one "he came to the realization he was coming off a little stalkerish. At least she was used to that with the men in her life." - Oz. that is just way to true, heck Angel's stalkerness is one reason I'm not a big fan of him, that and the ability to out brood the younger McLeod (go Connor!!). ~_~ nice work can't wait for your next update be it this one one of the others.
Comments from author:
LOL. Don't worry, Oz won't become another Angel.

Review of chapter "Chapter 7: Don’t You Ever Get Tired Of Hurting Me" from clarityfades
Review:
I'm really digging all your song choices. Loved that Buffy saw Cordy & Wes before she finished her song, & that she didn't try to avoid them. Does this mean we'll get a chappie or two of them talking before her next song? Or will it all be encapsulated into one? & I really adored Oz's realization that he's kinda stalkerish--& that it'd be okay b/c Buffy's used to it. LMAO Excellent chappie!
Comments from author:
Unless she wasn't going to return to the hotel, Buffy didn't have much choice of talking to them eventually. Sorry, we're going straight to the last song/chapter of the story.

Review:
Yay for Wes and Cordy! Boo for Oz not stalking her immediately. I did enjoy the line about her being used to that. It implies goodies coming our way. ^.^

CT.
Comments from author:
I had a reason for Buffy not seeing Oz right away. She has to have her last song before they run into each other again.
