Review of chapter "Caring" from bradsan
You know I read it again and hoping for a quick update. One advice though. I know Buffy is Elizabeth now. Doesn't mean you have to write Elizabeth says, Elizabeth thinks. You use Buffy one time and Elizabeth the next. If you let the people call her Elizabeth or Lisbeth or Lizzy and write down Buffy thinks, act's, says is less confusing and easier for you to write and to read.

If you don't understand what I mean. Read the story and you will see that you are using one time Elizabeth and then Buffy again.

Can't wait for the next update. I only hope that Buffy won't go back to Sunnydale and Oz and Willow are gone stay with Buffy. This is really a good story don't forget. You did good.

This was a good story, too bad it's dead.
Comments from author:
It's not dead. My life has been damned stressful and I haven't been able to write. Thanks, though.

Review of chapter "Caring" from bradsan
Giles said that Buffy is part demon. I don't agree. She was a normal girl before she was called. All the Potential Slayers are. If You read what the first slayer becomes you would know. she became primitive, acting more like an animal.

You also wrote that Joyce learned Buffy how to love. Most parents do. But some people can't love either even when they were loved by their parents. Even Spike, Dru and Angelus loved, You wrote it yourself.

The slayers are different but not partly demon. they are imbued with the heart, soul and spirit from the first slayer. Slayers became super-humans when they are activated. They get an essence from an demon, just like perfume you put an essence from roses in it for the smell doesn't mean it's partly roses.

Still very good writing, hope you'll find the time to update this story. Oh and please make the soul permanent.

Review of chapter "Expedience" from LingAndFire
Um...the whole blood tue thing is unrealistic yes only 1% of the world has AB- but that means 60 million do have it. Also a person does not nessisaraly need there exact blood type as a person and anyone can recive O- and it is plain without the troublesome protiens. This is in a major hospital the will have the appropriate blood to give. Sorry I just don't like it when things like that are unrealist.
Comments from author:
Congrtulations, I'm glad I've grown out of the meddlesome nitpicking you've just done where the first thing I pounced on was what I perceived to be a flaw in the story rather than the plot or any such other thing.

Also, brainiac, the largest concentration of those sixty million people happen to reside in Japan -- rather a long ways from Gotham, if we were to place it on a map. Rather difficult to harvest and keep blood long enough for that and it would cost at least thousands of dollars to do so. And just because PPTH is a 'major' hospital (teaching hospitals can be considered major, yes, but -- generally -- they survive on donations and what those donations can allow them to harvest from the population nearest them, which is the one they serve, which is most certainly not guaranteed to have AB Negative blood just lying around) doesn't mean they have unlimited resources.

If you weren't so crazed to start condemning every word I've written here, you might have - both - done a little more research yourself, not to mention bothered to proofread what you've written here. If we're going to nitpick, a lot of what you've written here isn't found in the English dictionary and just because you can find sixty million people with the rarest blood type doesn't necessarily mean that blood is still available for the general population or even usable, given certain circumstances.

Another thing you could have done while pouncing so hard on what you felt was such an inadequate story for your tastes was press the bloody back button if you found it so unpalatable, rather than make yourself look as stupid as you have. I don't have a medical degree yet, but plenty of research went into what I've written. Feel free to go find something else to complain about now.

Review of chapter "Caring" from HealerTwilight
Hey!*waves* I love this idea! Love your House/Tim, too. I hope Xander patches things up with Buffy. He's my favorite character, and I hate when he gets bashed. Though I did read your authors notes and know that's not what you were doing, it seemed like you might go that route when you started the Xander parts of the story.
I hope Houses miraculous slayer blood induced healing is permanent, 'cause it would totally suck if he had to go back to limping. Also, I hope he decides to go back to Princeton. I think he's be far to bored otherwise... Plus, I LIKE the ducklings, and Chase doesn't have the experience to be department head yet. And House/Tim is practically like his father now, and he can't just leave Cuddy and Wilson there all alone.*G* I hope to see more soon, since there aren't really all that many good House/BtVS crosses around.
Comments from author:
To be honest, I have no more idea what's going to happen (well, a vague idea, but nothing concrete) than you do. I go where the story tells me so I can enjoy it as much as I would hope everyone who reads it does.

And, uh, you're forgetting where Tim has returned to. Gotham, boring? How, pray tell?

No, I have no intentions of this being an anti-Xander story and I'm glad you picked up on that.

Our opinions about Chase will have to differ because at this point, Tim has realized that forging a relationship with his daughter and son-in-law as well as repairing the one with the rest of his family is, by far, the most important thing he has to do right now.

I'll never say he won't return to Princeton for any reason, but I will say that his move back to Gotham, proper, is permanent. Still, again, he has connections to people in Princeton just like in Gotham and he doesn't want to repeat the same mistakes and cut them out of his life.

I agree (I think) that House is the only parent Chase has ever known. That is one relationship he will not sever because he does not want to see Chase go down the road he has, much less suffer any more than he already has.

Cuddy and Wilson are adults, as Bruce pointed out. They do need to learn to stop meddling in House's life the way they do, but Tim loves them and would never stay away from them forever. As Bruce said in the original stories these are based on, there's plenty of room in Wayne Manor for all of Tim's friends.

Thank you so much for reading and for such a heartfelt review. I deeply, deeply appreciate it and do plan to keep this one going, along with my other stories. Unfortunately, my muse is fickle and likes to play 'Pop Goes the Weasel' with ideas so please bear with me and be patient. I would hope you're rewarded for it.

Review of chapter "Caring" from greysh
Nice fic! I like the crossover!
I do hope that you will write Xander in a better light, I like him and it's sad to she him written like this.
I hope that you will continue with this fic!
Good luck with the next chapter.
Comments from author:
Thank you for reading and reviewing. I'm working on writing Xander REALISTICALLY, including actually growing as a person while still acknowledging the trauma and other things he's been through, which the show would bring up from time to time when it was convenient and then drop, which really bothered me.

I'm working on trying to make him more well-rounded and the man we all know he can be while still keeping that essential Xander-shaped core of goodness that made him such a good guy in the first place. It's his jealous tendencies, something he definitely shared with Anya -- though that won't happen here -- that bothered me the most. They were unfounded and led to terrible destruction not only of his own life at times, but most certainly others.

I can't wait to help him become the man he deserved to be a lot sooner than in canon.

Review of chapter "Caring" from burmafrdnow
IT is really amusing how much better so many "amateur" writers are compared to Joss when it comes to dealing with real feelings and the such. Giles here was superb. Buffy was great. Joyce was more likeable here then she ever was on the show. And if Xander was truly supposed to be the normal person why have him be so messed up due to his home life?

Joss appears to me to be a emotionally crippled person who cannot accept the concepts of a loving family or a happy relationship. That comes through in his work. IF he was not such a Turd I would almost feel sorry for him.

Today everyone thinks to be interesting the hero must be so flawed so as to be a caricature of a real person. All writers and producers talk about flawed hero's and charactors; they are not flawed; they are emotional and psychological wrecks. Sad statement that that is what is supposed to be entertaining.

Review of chapter "Caring" from adoxerella
At your service as always, my liege. I think the problem is we both were distracted by the 'haircut of doom' scene that you wrote the day before this for another story (or at least I was distracted because the Woobies *pets Woobies and giggle madly over her own use of the cryptic*).

Also, I may have just woken up and be in need of coffee.

In other news, Timmy, if you continue to behave, J'onn might share his Chocos with you. Maybe. *dances around chanting 'J'onn' over and over again*

Did I mention the whole lack of coffee thing.
Comments from author:
You did mention it. I'm tempted just to call them Oreos and leave it at that. Remember when they were making the awesomely flavored ones? I loved mint and coffee, which was interesting considering I didn't even drink coffee at all at the time.

The 'Woobies' in question are still sorting out their troubles but, in the end, will reconcile. YOU KNOW THIS.

Tim could always just buy his own Oreos. A whole package to himself. Of course, if he eats them too often he'll start hating them. Elizabeth might start to threaten him with them when he's being an ass.

Also, we should take a trip back to Princeton sometime soon, shouldn't we? Cuddy and Wilson are probably in House withdrawal. Chase, too. I feel worse for Chase. House is the only parental figure he's ever had.

Review of chapter "Refutation" from burmafrdnow
Giles monologue just blows away anything Joss ever did; but then that is not saying that much. His explanation for being a Watcher and the conequences were just excellant.

I have to admit that I have let all the mary sue garbage done with Xander in fanfiction affect my point of view of his charactor; but still Giles was DEAD on with Xander.

Actually having the soldier and hyena stick around kind of diminshes the Xander charactor in my point of view: he was supposed to be the only normal person of the Scooby Gang.
Comments from author:
Thank you for reading and reviewing.

Thank you, I've never written a lot of Giles before so that's definitely a compliment.

I find it hard to view Xander as at all normal given what's happened to him. I couldn't ever just ignore it and feel, personally, that his character being 'normal' was impossible given what he'd gone through even before he met Buffy.

As someone whose life has been 'dysfunctional', if not in the same vein as Xander's, I can personally say there is absolutely no room for normality and people thinking otherwise, even if they created the character, is extremely hard for me to swallow.

It's a disservice to what the character has endured even before the quote-unquote weird stuff started happening.

And to have it happen at all and then just fade away seems like a total waste of plot, in that case. I felt it was a better use to see Xander altered, yet DEALING with the changes and instead of succumbing to them, using them to HIS advantage to become a better person.

So that's what I'm exploring.
