Review of chapter "Treachery and Daggers" from ChefJackButler
Review:
I'm somehow reminded of a Larry Niven story entitled "What Good is a Glass Dagger", the answer for which is "Its still a dagger."

Review of chapter "Treachery and Daggers" from Geyer
Review:
Thanks for fixing a terrible bit of canon. I always thought that Joss must have been thinking, "OK, I want to kill somebody off; who's left that the fans still care about that I can dispose of in a completely meaningless way?" Wes was a smart man who knew his own strengths and weaknesses and would have been sure he'd completely researched his enemy's strengths and weaknesses as well; your version works much better than what we saw. Thanks for posting it.

Review of chapter "Treachery and Daggers" from Greywizard
Review:
An excellent idea that makes perfect strategic and tactical sense - which probably explains why it could never happen in the Joss-verse. ;-)

Thanks for sharing.

Review of chapter "Treachery and Daggers" from (Recent Donor)wolframhart
Review:
Much more sensible than canon, Wesley usually used weapons but he decides to use magic against a powerful mage? Never made much sense. That quote was bothering me, I knew I heard it before. Then I remembered, the chapter 17 title line of Jhereg by Steven Brust. Nice use of obscure reference. Should I be bothered that I remembered that.
Comments from author:
WOW! I had NO idea that I was quoting the chapter title line! My subconscious must be pretty darn smart. :-)

Review of chapter "Treachery and Daggers" from justaguy
Review:
If Wes hadn't been looking to die that's probably what he would have done.
Comments from author:
Wanting to die is one thing, but not making sure your targets goes too? That's just sloppy!

Review of chapter "Treachery and Daggers" from eriktheviking
Review:
A great idea well executed.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the praise, but I didn't actually write anything original. Just bash and file to fix a STUPID plan in canon.

The anti-magic bomb came from the Wandererverse (Merlin does this to the Dark Circle, then guns down LeFay & Co. with a machine pistol)

The Morganti dagger from the Jhereg novels wasn't STRICTLY necessary, but made SURE Vail ain't walking away from that one. (Wesley could have bashed him to death with his IV stand.)

Review of chapter "Treachery and Daggers" from (Current Donor)mmooch
Review:
Yay for the smartness of Wes! I seem to recall that during his AtS days, Wes was very into gadgets, so this works perfectly for his character.
