Review of chapter "Roll the Bones" from Gideon
Review:
Sad that they both have their doubts about hope at this time. I hope that their hope can recover, even if they cannot hope for the same things they hoped for in the past.

Review of chapter "Roll the Bones" from JasonBarnett
Review:
the one time Buffy ever "used" him was seven years before. If he's not over that he needs to grow up.

Edit: she was willing to give things with Satsu a chance. She even felt bad when Satsu left. She may have used Spike when she was still recovering from being pulled from heaven initially, but by the end of the show she loved him. She loved Angel. And she certainly didn't use Riley. In fact, his big complaint that lead to him leaving was that she didn't use him enough. That since she didn't use him as a shoulder to cry on etc. when Joyce was dying it was a sign she didn't love him. Despite the fact she wasn't exactly crying on anyone's shoulder at the time.
Comments from author:
In the story it clearly states that she "used people". During the show she used Xander, and for more than just a strippers pole, she used Riley, she used Spike, she used Angel, and the list goes on. In the comics she used Satsu. Buffy knew without a doubt how the girl felt about her and had a fling anyway despite not reciprocating those feelings, that is using someone. If you are going to be nit-picky, then pick legitimate nits in the future.

Review:
It's cute that he still cares for Buffy, but he's forgetting that he did the exact same thing to another girl, Willow.
Comments from author:
I can see your point, to a degree, however the difference is that Willow never made her feelings known. She never put herself out there on the line with Xander.

Review of chapter "Roll the Bones" from ferball
Review:
grrhhh - evil author; who's the weeping woman?!?!? How 'bout a vengence demon just waiting for Xan to make a wish?

Comments from author:
Not a vengence demon, or even a dead vengence demon that's looking out for Xander, but that's a good guess. Her identity will be revealed a couple of stories into the series but she will be popping up here and there before that. Thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Roll the Bones" from Walegrin
Review:
Thanks for your comments. I mostly agree with you, and with Greywizard regarding the comics. I h ave my guesses as to they mystery woman but since I'm not too speed with the current season or so of Bones I may be off.

Looking forward to the other stories you mentioned when the muse allows.

Review of chapter "Roll the Bones" from Greywizard
Review:
Quite well done, and a very accurate and insightful look at both Seeley's situation and the Buffy adn Xander dynamic.

A cynical part of me believes that a manipulative and calculating part of Buffy always knew exactly how much Xander was devoted to her and kept him just distant enough to ensure that he would always be there,waiting, in order to ensure that she would never be completely alone, but the rest of me hopes that that isn't true.

And as far as the characters' developments in the comics are concerned, I think that Joss was writing whatever crap he felt would maintain or increase the readership - hence having Buffy decide, without any prior indications, that she might be bisexual and take up with a Slayer who's been crushing on her.

The absolute garbage that he was putting out, along with the morally simplistic and *extremely* stupid actions he had all of the Scoobies making made me drop reading it by issue ten or so.

In any event, I'm quite interested in learning who the woman who had been listening in on their conversation might be.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review, I appreciate your input. I found the whole Satsu situation upallatable because Buffy was replaying her actions from season six (or season Sux as you've put it). She used Spike to feel better but has no real like for him, it's just about her feeling better. Then she uses Satsu for the same reason. That was it for me. As to the woman, that's a few stories down the line, but she'll pop up here and there. Anyway, thanks again, and I'm looking forward to a new chapter of "Prophecies", whenever it gets here.

Review of chapter "Roll the Bones" from Walegrin
Review:
Well done. And a valid point about hope too I must say. I'm with the others that are curious as to the woman's identity.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review. I thought that Xander held on too tightly to the possibility of Buffy. I thought it funny that both SMG and Nick Brendan went to Joss before season seven and suggested a B/X ending but he said no. After the Satsu bit in the comics, I felt that he was just spinning his wheels on Buffy's relationships and stopped reading. The idea for this story (and the ones that follow) came when my wife commented that the Booth/Brennan relationship in Bones was just like Xander/Buffy and that it was ironic that the guy who played Angel was now in Xander's spot. As to the woman, well that's coming in a story or two (or three).
