Review of chapter "Hollow" from Greywizard
Interesting crossover, and well-written, but the Buff-bashing was completely unnecessary to the plotline and seemed gratuitous in the extreme.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review. As for the Buffy-bashing, it was necessary to the plot because I needed Xander to stay away from Sunnydale and we all know Xander. He would have come home to help Buffy. But, by having Buffy indirectly at fault for Xander's coma, it ensured that Xander would stay where he was. However, I can appreciate where you are coming from and I hope I didn't turn you off of other stories I post.

Review of chapter "Hollow" from Rob
Only read this after it was finished as I'm not a fan of the cross, but I've got to say you did an excellent job. Very well written with a great plot.

Thank you very much for the comment. I hope I changed your mind a little about the cross, but at least I got a fan out of it at the least. Thanks again.

Review of chapter "Hollow" from missinglink
Aarghhh!! While I am happy with the writing and the conclusion of the story am very angry that it is over. Was surprised you went the more small/contained story limited to just the beginning. Of course you can pick it up if you want to revisit, but you can also leave it be where it stands. The ending to the mystery while nice is like most mysteries in that it is there as a means of moving the plot of the main story along. The payoff was really the ending between the two that loved Willow. That beginning of a friendship is almost Casablanca-esque in the idea that two men find a bond they forge that has a woman involved, but that is not in the picture any longer, or something like that. If one were to continue the story I could see Oz in the Dr. Watson/black physical therapist/sidekick role that would play well, especially in a Jay and Silent Bob kinda way. Nice drop in of Faith there. Would be interested if Buffy is still around as I don't think she was mentioned. Same goes for Jenny, Joyce, Dawn, The Fang Gang, Jonothan, Warren, Tara, Andrew, Kendra (Just cause Faith is active doesn't mean Kendra had to die), Spike (least of the group).

As an idea might be interesting to do a follow up of a meeting between Xan and Oz with the Fang Gang in LA and how they might have changed from the changes wrought by Xander's coma and fallout. Maybe tie in Faith somehow. Could make it more mundane instead of supernatural or tie the two together like Angel sometimes did by making mundane matters occure to the supernatural. Of course if that works then maybe Oz and Xan either stay in SunnyD and solve stuff or go roaving. Like a followup cross with Charmed or Nash Bridges which sees them in San Francisco.

There are options if you want to. Just hate to see something that is well written be left so self contained with so much to explore available. Either way, thanks for the read and hope for more maybe. Later.

Thank you so much for your in-depth feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed the story and I am planning on continuing in this new 'verse I've created. It all depends on how much my muse gives me, you know?

I always intended for Oz to join Xander because that seemed like it would work. Xander needed a person from his past to remember where he came from and Oz needed someone to help him through what is the worst time in his life. I always liked the black physical therapist from TDZ the series and I wanted to keep that dynamic going.

Buffy was indeed featured, during Willow's funeral, Xander runs into her. Kendra and Jonothan are mentioned. Spike was also mentioned. Buffy staked him not long after Xander's coma.

I dropped Faith in because, well, it seemed like a good idea at the time. She's not active at the moment, but from my memories, her home life wasn't the greatest, so, logic dictates that she would go as far away from Boston as she could.

I'd like for Xander to catch up with Angel and his gang but, I'm trying to keep as far away from vampires as I can because West Lake Tahoe is going to have enough trouble with Xander and his gift without bringing that side of the story into it.

I hope you keep reading and thanks again for the comments.

Review of chapter "Hollow" from kayron
This was a good story. Sad, but still a good story. It's kind of nice to know that in the end Willow's best friend extends the hand of friendship to the man that Willow loved.
Comments from author:
I'm glad you stuck around to the very end. It was an exhausting story to write because I got into places that I don't normally like going. The next stories, however, are probably going to be just as dark as this one was. Perhaps even darker, if the ideas I have grow to fruition.

Review of chapter "Dark That Follows" from kayron
Well one of the victims did scream 'No! Randy no!'. She did that because she knew her murderer. I just wonder why the doctor kept working with Xander after he knew Xander was psychic? And, if he never touched Xander, how did a doctor get away with that?
Comments from author:
Well, if you noticed, Lynch was never around Xander when he had his tests done, talked about his powers or anything. The only thing Lynch ever really saw was a former coma patient woke up, had EEG tests done (which is to be expected) and talked about his missing friend with a wild theory. By the time Xander's powers became well-known, he had ended his residency. And you have to figure that he thought himself too good and too smart to be caught.

Review of chapter "Dark That Follows" from Stormrider
I'm been a fan of the Dead Zone series, I almost never miss an episode, and I'm a fan of Buffy as well. Nice changes you made in this story and some not so nice. Willow dieing for one. It's a bit of a swerve that we thought that Dr Parker did it, but it was the crime scene tech, then it was Dr Lynch. Not to mention what Buffy did to Xander when he got injured. I love to see what happened to Jon, Angel and Cordy must be in LA. I wonder what will happen when they find out that Xander is out of his coma. It's going to be interesting to see what you put up next in this series. Maybe Rachel and Xander might be a couple, and who knows what happens to the nightlife with Xander now. This is good keep it up
Comments from author:
Thank you muchly for the review. I too am a fan of TDZ and I have almost every season on DVD. I'm glad you liked the story and I look forward to delving into the new mythos I've created as to where Cordy and Angel are now. As for the nightlife, I really don't know how often I'm going to return to good ol' Sunnydale because I really don't see where Xander could fit what with his inability to walk without a cane and the fact that he has made his own life away from the Hellmouth. Thanks again!

Review of chapter "Losing Grip" from kayron
That was a surprising twist! A good one, since it means that Xander didn't befriend the man who murdered Willow. It makes sense that the piece of 'overwhelming' evidence that identified the doctor as the main suspect, actually came from the real killer.

Review of chapter "So Far Away" from kayron
Xander may not have been able to save Willow, but he should be able to get justice for her death. I AM surprised that he didn't get a vision of the killer, since the man did come into physical contact with Xander, as one of Xander's health care providers. I'm shocked that Buffy just left Xander laying there for hours! Even if she expected Angel to come out soon, she should have stopped to help and call an ambulance because Xander was supposed to be her friend. There is also the little fact that he had just sacrificed HIMSELF in order to save HER!
