Review of chapter "Beyond the Sea" from andystreetuk
wow, just wow................
Comments from author:
Thanks. I'd kinda forgotten about this one and how much I like it. I'm gonna have to play around in this 'verse some more, at some point. I have this whole third story planned involving Ethan Rayne being Andrew Ryan's nephew, but I haven't written it yet.

Can I just say how completely awesome you are for taking the time to review all my fics? This has been, like, the best morning ever and it's only 11!

Review of chapter "Beyond the Sea" from Sayko
Great! Now you make me crying! Are you ashamed? ;) So yeah a touching story. I have, a few days ago, ended bioshock 2 and so intrigued with this story I soooo had to look if there are anywhere ffs about buffy/bs(2). You made my day!
Great thing! Greets Wermops

Thank you! I'm glad you like it. I have to Bioshock ficlets up, and a third on the way (It might be a while). My next one will have Bioshock 2 references I think.

Review of chapter "Beyond the Sea" from RockyWilliams
Nice story. Never played the game, but have heard about it and know enough to follow it.
Comments from author:
Thanks. I'm glad you like it. I have at least one more Bioshock ficlet planned, but it's as yet unwritten.

Review of chapter "Beyond the Sea" from sabrielemrys
omfg!! loved EET LOVED IT!! STILL LOVE IT!!

mostly cuz i just beat the game (bioshock 2) 10 hours ago. hehe.

more please? mayhaps one of willow being wanted by fontaine and andrew ryan due to the fact that she's effin smart? or something?

*begs* pllleaaaaaaaaaaase.

oh..and you need to play the second game if you haven't, you can control a lil sister, and it explains why they go "it's an angel!".
Comments from author:
I've made it about halfway through Bioshock 2, tomorrow I can play more, maybe I can finish it. (I don't actually own my own PS3, I have to use the BF's). I've read some of the stuff on the Bioshock wiki, but I actually want to experience it myself, so once I beat the game, I'll go through the internet, watch all the alternate endings, read all the spoilers in case I missed something, and then maybe write some more, if I'm so inspired.

I already know that Suchong conditioned the girls to think corpses were angels, so they wouldn't be so afraid to touch them.

within this story, Willow was born, like, 20 years after Ryan & Fontaine died, lol. She was born about '80 or '81, and the first game was set in 1960.

I might not touch this ficlet again (it's finished) but I think I'll probably write some more Bioshock fic.

Comments from author:
I'm glad you like it. If you can't get a chance to play the games, watch some of the cutscenes on YouTube.

Review of chapter "Beyond the Sea" from Doc
Bio Shock + Buffy = love. XD
Comments from author:
Pretty much my reaction. Bioshock (apart from Wolfenstein) is my favorite game series. I absolutely love the storyline, and I love the little sisters. I may need to try and come up with another fic at some point. I'm glad you liked it!

Review of chapter "Beyond the Sea" from DarkFaerieYumi
WICKED AWESOME! I love Bioshock. Never actually played but my friend made me watch so many videos and promised to let me borrow his copies of both games. This was really good. Joyce does sound like a good and obvious Little Sister.
Comments from author:
I'm really glad people like it!

After I beat Bioshock 2, I may write another one, but I want to play through the game to get to the ending, without being too spoiled, although I know there are 6 possible endings. When I finish it, I'll probably watch them all on YouTube.

Thanks fore reviewing!

Review of chapter "Beyond the Sea" from CPTSkip
I liked your story and didn't think it was crackfic. I thought you did a very nice logical extrapolation from the postulate that Joyce was a Little Sister. I liked your Joyce and now wonder if the Scoobies will ever attempt to visit Rapture.
Comments from author:
I think I might be tempted at some point to write another ficlet where Rapture is discovered by the public. But if I write any more in this fandom, I want to wait until after I've beaten Bioshock 2, and I've only played 5 hours of it so far. I should have more time to play the game on Wednesdays and Saturdays (I don't own a PS3, my BF does) so it'll take me some more.

I don't know why I thought it was cracked. I do like it after I wrote it., :D

Review of chapter "Beyond the Sea" from Shulik
I adored this. It was at once dark, hopeful and poignant.

Your writings sends shivers down my spine.

Comments from author:
*BounceBounceBounce* Yay! I'm glad you like it. The topic came up this morning, and then I just couldn't get it out of my head all day, you know?

Review of chapter "Beyond the Sea" from (Current Donor)DeepBlueJoy
This was beautiful and disturbing. I've never even heard of the crossover universe, but you conveyed it as being rather terrifying. I love the twist with Giles seeing Joyce as a 'marvel'. I always wished that Giles and Joyce would get together for good and happiness, but alas, they didn't do it. Even though it was just for a moment, Giles and Joyce had something more than just band candiness!



ps: I almost never give anyone 10's
Comments from author:
*Is ecstatic* I am SO glad at how well-received this was. I may need to write more of this, turn it into a series of ficlets or something.

This is one of those things that literally came to me in the car at 11:30am and then was finished and ready to post by 5:30. The only fic that ever poured out of me that fast was Four Square, with my other stories it sometimes takes me a good monthe to write a chapter, and sometimes even many months between updates. THis was started and finished in a few hours, which is a new experience for me.

I am SO glad people liked it! I wasn't sure how big the Bioshock fandom is, so I didn't know if anyone would read it.

Review of chapter "Beyond the Sea" from superbrutal
I enjoyed this very much, I thought you captured the not only the "little sister" thought or how Joyce may react.

I wouldn't mind seeing some more.

Nicely done.
Comments from author:
Thank you!

If this world speaks to me again I'll write some more.

I'm glad you liked it, I wasn't sure anyone would read it, since there's no "Bioshock" category on the site.
