Review of chapter "Part Three" from (Recent Donor)jedibuttercup
Took me awhile to get around to reading this one; but it was utterly lovely, as so much of your work is. Giles' characterization and behavior with respect to Buffy frustrated me so much the last couple of years of the show, but this storyline makes me love him hugely all over again.

Review of chapter "Part Three" from PATM
Beautiful and I think, difficult to do without mincing words too much. Would there be any more coming our way? I read all Three today so this is for all of them.

Review of chapter "Part Three" from (Past Donor)Keldin
I don't really understand the mythological background here (if there is a known one as opposed to one wholly made up for the storyline), but I did want to say that I am very much enjoying the stories. They truly have an otherworldly feel.

Thank you. It's mostly English folk tale and fairy lore - the old stuff, not the sanitised Disney versions. The tale of Thomas the Rhymer, who travelled to Elfland and was gifted with the tongue that could not lie (which is thought to be a varient of the Tam Lin story) has inspired all sorts of subsequent tales, including Kipling's poem (and probably some of his 'Puck of Pook's Hill' tales too.)

Shakespeare drew on a similar vein of folklore when writing 'Midsummer Night's Dream' of course ...

(Not that I'm comparing myself with Shakespeare, I hasten to point out!)
