Review of chapter "Things That Go Bump In The Night - Shoot Back!" from lilacsandroses
Review:
Hello,

I was wondering if this story is abandoned because it has been awhile (over a year) since you have updated. I really enjoy reading this story, I loved Ardeth Bey. I thought he deserve a girl himself in the movies since he is way too hot to be alone. Hehehe....So, can you tell me is this on hiatus, WIP, or abandoned? Thanks!
Comments from author:
Sorry for taking so long to get back to you. No this story is not abandoned. I promise to complete all my works in progress, but am trying to post or repost stories I either removed from the site or only had posted on my personal website, which no longer exists. That's why I listed it as on HIATUS.

I am right there with you regarding Ardeth Bey. Total Yum.

Review of chapter "Things That Go Bump In The Night - Shoot Back!" from bradsan
Review:
You know it amazed me every time when you see Buffy as who she really is. A rather intelligent girl who is hiding her intelligent with her blond act. A well she is still young and she rather skip researched because it's boring. I always thought that she could read and understand more languages then she would show. I never understood the Scoobies and Giles that they never noticed.
I read this one again and I'm liking it more and more.
Comments from author:
Thank you. I had a friend rather like Buffy growing up, and she played her 'naivete' like a concert violinist. I never knew why people who had known her since Elementary school never saw through it.

I'm hoping to get back to this soon. Keep your fingers crossed.

Nicely done as always. So are they going to get to Hamunaptra soon and when they get there how are they going to run into the others? Please update soon.
Comments from author:
Thanks. Hamunaptra is coming up, I promise. I'll try to get back to this story soon.

Review of chapter "Time To Come Out From Behind The Blonde" from (Current Donor)mmooch
Review:
It's cool that Buffy still messed up the name. Like she thought, you can't change everything all at once. Can I be jealous she gets to ride with Ardeth?
Comments from author:
Buffy is still our girl at heart, although she's trying to grow up, it won't happen overnight. Go ahead, I am. *wink*

Review of chapter "Never Tell A Seer How To See" from bucksavage
Review:
Found this fic a few days back and decided to read through what there was so far before reviewing. Xande trying to be intimidating was pretty funny, but touching in a way, and we all really know he'd die to save either Willow, Buffy, even Giles.

The part where Horus came to Buffy after she called the cliche, "Birdie, Birdie" was priceless. Then to top it off she asks the bird if she should talk to Ardeth. Sheer hilarity....but it fit really, so far up to that point the only thing she knows is not a mirage is the bird because it landed on her arm.

Then the latest chapter, Ruya is amazing, such power in a most unassuming person. And her reaction to Ardeths doubts, then her snap back to the job at hand, is a killer 180, but it really fits her dedication to her duty.
Comments from author:
I'm glad you like the story so far. And, you are correct about Xander's dedication to those he loves. He just takes his feelings too far sometimes IMHO.

I've always found the most interesting people in my life those who sat back and play an unassuming role. They watch and listen to what's going on around them, and many times solve the problems while everyone else continues to argue over the solution.

Ruya is stylized after some of the wonderful women I've known throughout my life, who have shared their rich histories with me.

Review of chapter "Never Tell A Seer How To See" from (Current Donor)mmooch
Review:
LOL. Only Buffy would use a big word and 'thinkage' in the same series of thoughts. Double LOL for the smack upside the head. Bet not too many people get away with doing that to the Slayer.
Comments from author:
That's our girl, and *blushes* I've done the same thing myself.

Someone had to do, and Ruya was just the lucky lady to get nominated. Most people will take advice that friends and family have tried to tell them for years when it comes from an outsider. *shrugs* Not sure why, probably because it sounds like everyone else is yelling or telling us what to do.

Will be interesting to see what these two get up to next? *evil grin*

As always thanks for the lovely reviews.

Review of chapter "Fate's Every Changing Hand" from JoeDineen
Review:
Drug is something you take as a medicine or to get high, drag is the word you should have used, "Drag her eyes from the desert"

Alter is to change, she altered her appearance to disguise herself. Altar is where one offers sacrifice.

Other than that it a solid enough chapter.
Comments from author:
Duly noted, and taken care of, always appreciate any editing mistakes I miss, and that make my stories better.

Thanks for reviewing, and hope you're enjoying the story.

Review of chapter "Fate's Every Changing Hand" from (Current Donor)mmooch
Review:
Freaky imagery at the altar *shudder*. Had to laugh at poor Ardeth when he had to hear Buffyspeak. He doesn't even have Giles' mild advantage of knowing even some of the cultural references she uses.
Comments from author:
Too bad she didn't come with a translation guide, or decoder ring. California slang is far from the desert hospitality and the formalities he's been brought up with.

Review of chapter "The Dance" from (Current Donor)mmooch
Review:
Uh-oh, are the symbols that are showing up on past!Buffy a bad thing or something helpful? Gotta love the 'fight' between her and the hot guy. What better way to get the UST flowing between them.
Comments from author:
Both, they are there to lead into finally putting down this Big Bad for good this time. She just has to figure out the puzzle in time. Question is will she figure it.

*wink* Ooh, you figured out my master plan.

Review of chapter "The Dance" from GypsyWitch
Review:
great chapter! the fight scene was beautifully written! but what's up with glowy buffy?! can't wait for more!
Comments from author:
Thank you. Fight scenes are terribly hard to get right, so I'm glad you liked it.

The glow links to what's happening in the past, and are effectively an hourglass for when times up for Buffy to Get it Done!!

Review of chapter "Unlock the Door" from FireWolfe
Review:
A very sweet update. I have to say it is really going to be good. I pity the bad guy however. Buffy will kick his ass if only for messing up her dreams.
Comments from author:
The Big Bad's really creeping her out, and she'll be happy when the Land of Nod stops messing with her. *smile* Glad you're enjoying the story. More to come.

Review of chapter "Unlock the Door" from (Current Donor)mmooch
Review:
Darn these visions that keep knocking Buffy out! Oh well, at least it gave Ardeth a good excuse to touch her - even if it was in a non-sexual way.
Comments from author:
Looks around to make sure no ones looking, waves mmooch closer, and whispers, "Good news, the visions are over for now. Bad news, Buffy has to figure out what the heck they're telling her other than the obvious. Remember that she's danced this dance before, and has to learn some new steps this time."

Sneaky author fades away.
