Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Past Donor)morgyair
Loved that Xander saved the kids and now he's working with Jesse to annoy demons....however could we have more on this story!
Comments from author:
Your wish is my command and all took a little more time than I'd have liked, given RL, but the second story is up and started. I hope you like it!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from calikocat
Totally a Xander kind of thing to die while protecting others. *applauds* I love that you chose Alexx for this, and I could hug you for reuniting him with Jesse. ^^
Comments from author:
Of course Xan would die for others! He's XAN!

Alexx is my favorite CSI person ever, hands down. And really, if it couldn't be Ducky from NCIS that took care of our boy afterwards, there's nobody better it could have been.

JESSE AND XANDER BELONG TOGETHER! Not necessarily in a sexy-times way, but they're BFFs! One of them being dead for three years isn't gonna change that.

A continuation is up and slowly growing, if you wanted to check it out...

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)Cailleigh
I'd like to see this continued. You caught Alexx so well, I'd like to see how you do with the others, and how they would handle the two worlds colliding.
Comments from author:
Go and check out the second story then! I'm currently only working on the third chapter, but it's coming together.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from jessie
You captured Alexx's essence to a T. You should write one for each of the Scoobies coming across her table. It's be interesting. Thanks for a great story!
Comments from author:
Thank you! I don't think I'm gonna do Scooby-Death fic, but I have started in on the follow up to this story, with Xan and Jesse causing chaos in the Miami labs, if you're interested.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Ddraig
I like this a lot. Alexx is a favourite character of mine, and I can just picture it. Well crafted, and thank you for sharing it
Comments from author:
Alexx is my favorite CSI character, hands down. And I'll admit that I fudged with the dream this is based on a bit because originally it was the girl that took over for Alexx when she retired that did the autopsy. But Xan's had such a hard life, and quite a lack of mothering, so I said screw it and used Alexx because he deserved a little love.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from CrystalBlaze
I liked it, but you realize, what with Dennis, we now need to see the followup to all this.

There's three parts that can be displayed, after all.

1) The surviving Scoobies and the wake. Lots of growth can come from this.

2) The team discovering the supernatural.

3) Xander and Jesse and their tag team infuriation of Ethan Rayne!!
Comments from author:
1) I don't think I can write the other Scoobies :( Dawn, maybe; Faith, no problem. But Willow and Buffy and Tara? I'm not fans of the first two girls so I'm not sure I can be nice, and Tara's way too sweet for me to be able to get into her mindset. Though I'm not saying we won't see any of the other BtVS characters mourning the loss of Xan.

2) Hmmm...ghosts, yes. All the things that go bump in the night? It's a very hesitant 'maybe'.

3) Oh, Xan and Jess are going to infuriate the chaos sorcerer, but it's not Ethan Rayne. Remember, this is CSI:Miami, I mentioned IAB, and Xan (at least in my head) doesn't like it when people are tormented for no wrong doing of their own. Put them all together and you get my favorite man to hate, Rick Stetler.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Past Donor)KieriToews
I liked it very much. Even though I am not so fond of Xander on most days. You did good by him, nevertheless.
Comments from author:
Thank you! It's really (can't remember the word) to hear that someone liked a story even though they're not fans of the main character.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Greywizard
I liked this a lot.

Your characterizations are on the mark and the description of how he died fits Xander to a tee.

I look forward to seeing what might come of Xander and Jesse deciding to pay attention to whichever poor fool at IAB drew their notice. ;-)

Thanks for sharing this with us.
Comments from author:
I'm glad you liked it! It's my first ever posted fic, and I was nervous. And I cannot explain how relieved I am that the characters rang true. It's one of, if not the most important parts of a story, especially a fanfic.

The next part is slowly taking shape, and I hope it lives up to your expectations! The crime lab isn't gonna know what hit 'em.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from kayron
I like happy endings, and any story where Xander dies is not a happy read for me! Although I will say that Xander got to go out protecting innocent kids. He DID manage to save them, so his sacrifice is worth it. He got to be taken care of by the most caring M.E. in the world Alexx 'Mom' Woods. He gets to spend his afterlife with a dear friend that he lost to the fight. I think that this would be considered a reasonable Xander Harris end.
Comments from author:
I don't generally like Xander death stories either, so I'm really glad that you were willing to look past that and enjoy the story.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from nightowl
Loved it. Very xanderish. I wonder if there could be more to this story? You mention Jesse and Xander going to bother IAB. What if you continued and told us what they did to him. Either way it goes this story will be a great re-read if only because i can picture different things happening next. Great job.
Comments from author:
I am *so* glad I got the characters to be true. That's what I worried about the most, other than the whole "OMG, I'm actually going to post this where people can *read* it?" thing.

And you must be a mind reader, because I was just thinking about how Xan and Jess go about bothering Stetler. I made myself giggle like a hyena in the bank, which got me weird looks, but I think I've got a good idea as to what *might* happen next. But I'm open to suggestions, if you've got any.
