Review of chapter "1/1" from CrimsonEmotions
Solid story, and one that sort of corrects what I felt was a major failing of the original series closer. I never really understood why Lindsay had to be killed, and if so, why it had to be Lorne to do it. I thought one of the main themes about Angel (both the series and the character) was redemption. Why was Lindsay of all people deemed so irredeemable?

Review of chapter "1/1" from (Current Donor)DeepBlueJoy

Not sure what got into Joss and company... Heck, they could have used the back of Buffy's head for the reunite shot if they couldn't get Gellar! I'm sure many of the minor slayers would have been willing to get scale to be on the Angel finale and give it a sense of realism. And this scene was all that was really needed -- after all, they handled most of the rest without any help from slayers the first time around, though a little witchery might have saved Wesley. Excellent work!

Review of chapter "1/1" from Alexis
Yes. That was perfect. Loved Buffy decking Angel - he totally deserved it too after starting an apocalypse.

Review of chapter "1/1" from (Current Donor)Cordyfan
This beats the final episode of Angel hands down and would have been a much more satisfying climax to the series (don't even get me started on the storyline sequels in the half-baked comics...)

Great work.

Review of chapter "1/1" from MarcusSLazarus
Barring the fact that SPIKE chose to remain in Los Angeles and asked Angel not to tell Buffy he was alive rather than Angel making that decision himself- coupled with the fact that Angel had no reason to believe Wolfram & Hart would unleash anything more than something to kill HIM, so he didn't want to drag anyone else into his fight-, interesting bit of work you've got here.
Comments from author:
The bit about Spike- yeah, you're right. I was just taking creative liberty there. I hated the fact that he fought so hard for Buffy's love and chickened out so easily from coming back to her.

I believe that Angel knew the full extent of what he was going to do. The Senior Partners destroyed the LA branch of Wolfram and Hart in order to kill him, he had pissed them off enough for them to destroy their own creation. He knew how powerful the Circle of the Black Thorn was when he made plans to go up against them- the Archduke Sebassis alone had forty legions of demons under his command. Combined with Lindsey's and others' constant warnings that the Partners were keeping Angel around for him to play his part in the next apocalypse and I'm pretty sure that Angel knew what he was doing.

I'm glad that you found it interesting at least.

Thanks for reviewing!

Review of chapter "1/1" from RavynJensen
Sigh, that's the way NFA should have gone...

I was never thrilled with the way Lindsey died, I always thought it was kind of a cop out, but then I never liked how they treated the character when they brought him back, having him 'go evil' again just never seemed necessary to me. And having Angel order Lorne to kill him, no wonder Lorne just left after that.

While I was never a big Spuffy fan (I just never liked the way she treated him, he deserved better -- yeah I'm a Spike fan), I have to say I'm glad that Spike won the girl over Angel in this fic.

Great job all around!

I'm so glad you liked the story :)

I've always had a crush on Lindsey, plus I found him such a fascinating and complex character. He didn't deserve to die like that, and I always thought that Angel treated him like an ass. Poor Lorney, the moment after he kills him- I just felt so bad for the green guy, I love him too much.

I'm not a Spuffy fan either, but some of my readers are- so I gave Buffy and Spike their happy ending.

And Spike deserved the girl, despite his cowardice he was still much cooler than his grandsire.

Thank YOU for reviewing!
