Review of chapter "Totem" from BlueEyedBrigadier
Review:
Absolutely stunning work! This story was filled to the brim with both joy and heartbreak as Xander reflected on what each of "his" lost women meant to him and what he carries with him of theirs when he's off stopping evil.

It's interesting that you have Willow included, though you rightly argue she's had a gigantic influence on Xander's life, since she never died like the rest whose hair he's collected...unless the S6 decent into Dark Willow is ruled as a death of the Willow that Xander took inspiration from before being reborn again through Xander reminding her of what she taught him. Which would be just as valid as Xander counting Buffy and having a sample of her hair in his totem, even though she's been resurrected 3 times (the first two heavily featuring Xander's help, latter Willow only).

Review of chapter "Totem" from LordSia
Review:
Beautiful. Even as I read it, I corrupted it with "low" magics, based on the laws of sympathy and contagion, of the definition of Holy, etc, etc. I guess that's just the way my brain works.
The fic itself was wonderful though, and I applaud your brilliance.
Comments from author:
Your comment wins everything. I applaud *your* brilliance.

Thank you for reading and leaving such lovely words. xx

Review of chapter "Totem" from Knightmare
Review:
Great story, but you forgot to metion Faith and Dawn. They also played a role in shaping Xander's life.
Comments from author:
Thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment! Much appreciated.

I actually didn't forget Faith or Dawn. This piece was about the women Xander had lost and how their lives *and* deaths had shaped him. While Buffy is still around, she did die twice; Faith and Dawn are still very much alive.

Review of chapter "Totem" from SongBirdie
Review:
What an insightful story! Your observations on what each woman meant to Xander were beautiful and bittersweet.

I loved all the different things they each taught him. Cordelia's section was my favorite.

There is one thing you might want to change. When you talk at the very end about what each woman gave Xander and how he'll carry those lessons with him, you don't mention Anya like you did before. You probably forgot her, so I thought I should tell you.

Wonderful job! I love your stories!
Comments from author:
Thank you so much! I can't tell you how much your kind comments mean to me, and I'm so glad you enjoyed the story!

I actually didn't forget Anya at the end; I had meant to infer that her lessons to him were such that they underlined all the others, but I don't think I communicated it very well. I will most likely revise, as I certainly don't want people to believe I forgot her. I love Anya!

Review of chapter "Totem" from MavenAlysse
Review:
Totem is a beautiful story. It said everything that I'd subconsciously thought, but did not have the words to express.

Thank you so much for sharing this.

Review of chapter "Totem" from morgannac
Review:
How could you not like Xander?
Absolutely, amazing story. I'm still in tears.

Did you also write Voice with Xander and Joyce singing? I've been looking for it for the last year at least. If so, please let me know where I can read it again.
Comments from author:
Thank you so, so much!

And yes, I did write "Voice"! Wow, that story was *forever* ago, and I'm surprised anyone remembers it! I took it down a while back, because it was riddled with plot holes and had too much character bashing. Besides, after Xander's singing in OMWF, the whole plot device really didn't wash. I'm so glad you remember it with fondness, though! :)
