Gonna go out on a limb here and agree with ironbear. Great story, good job fleshing out the carribean slayer, loved the interactions with Bruce. Hope you come back to it some day.

Review of chapter "Knight and Squire (Pt. 6)" from (Current Donor)Ironbear
Review:
Arrgghhh! And then there was no more of it and I am bereft! (o0)

Okay, I really like this story. I was skeptical at first - I found the story via a thread in the Writer's Forum and followed up on it. I'm glad I did. Very good.

At first I was skeptical, because I've very seldom seen this type of story done well. But you've done a good job so far of developing Xander's skill and abilities logically and slowly since Halloween. And I really like your treatment of Kendra. She so seldom gets a really good treatment and development in fics. All too often, she's treated as a disposable Slayer to show up and get killed so that Faith can be called.

From a few chapters back:

"' To put it short, the Watcher’s Council’s administration makes the British political system seem logical and even-keeled, and pre-revolutionary Chinese bureaucracy straightforward. I’ve had nightmares about writing out my Watcher’s Diaries in triplicate.'”

I love that phrase. I'd like to steal it for one of my versions of Giles to use at some point, if you don't mind. ;)

Review:
I really do hope you'll come back to this story. It is a very promising start. I like the subtle way you are building Xander's strength and his interactions with Kendra are also intriguing. Look forward to seeing more, hopefully sooner rather than later, if the muse and life are kind.

Peace,

Blue
Comments from author:
Aw, thanks Blue - that means a lot to me. I really can't make any promises re: exactly when, but this is a story I'll finish if it takes me ten years to do it - it needs telling, and I need to have the second heartbeat of its telling out of me. Tell you what: there's a sidestory I've got outlined in this 'verse from a bit further along in the timeline, 'Green Knight', that can be read and enjoyed independently of the main one; one way or another I'll aim to have either the next chapter of KoF or that sidestory out in time for Christmas.

It's been almost two years since you updated this. I hope you can find the time to continue this.

I still have my old outline and a ton of notes - I'll see what I can do.

(Thank you for asking. I'm touched that people still remember & care about this fic despite the long hiatus.)

Review:
Please continue this!

You are doing a great job, Xander with Bruce as a tagalong is great. The Kendra/Xander interactions are interesting.
I really, really like the Xander/Bruce interactions.

Thanks for a great story!

Review of chapter "Dark Knight (Pt. 1)" from Downery
Review:
Don't know if i like it or hate it yet. If Batman ends up all being in Xanders head but to Xander it seems like Batman is real.. like in Beautiful Mind.. will like it. If Xander acts like he took vows of chastity? Will hate it.
Comments from author:
Heh - re: chastity, Xander's a teenage boy. He lasted less than a week after getting out of the hospital before he took advantage of Bruce giving him 'private time' in the bathroom to take the edge off. It won't ever get particularly explicit on screen, but Xander will be in a committed relationship or two (and potentially some not-so-committed relationships), and it's canon that the Scoobies are very much /not/ chaste in such contexts.

Re: Bruce's reality...he's essentially a spirit possessing Xander, and only Xander. Whether that makes him 'real' to others I leave up to you to decide.

ahh looks like the party will start soon. Nice chapter, tx.
Comments from author:
Sorry for not responding to your comments sooner - it was a busy fall! I very much appreciate your feedback, and plan on picking up writing the next installment again in a week or two: I'd hate to let a full year pass by entirely without an update when I already have so much of the next bit outlined.

Review of chapter "Knight and Squire (Pt. 6)" from LordSia
Review:
Cool story. I like the way you contrast Bruce's experience, seriousness and lack of supernatural knowledge against Xander's light-hearted nature, ignorance and deep dedication to a war he doesn't really understand.
Or something, it sounded nice though, didn't it?

Review of chapter "Knight and Squire (Pt. 6)" from banner
Review:
Thank You for a story that doesn't make it all so easy ...

With Batman in a YAHF, it's almost automatic to end up with an uber!Xander - this one is still the everyman that we all love. This is a terrific portrayal of Bruce, as well. He's had many long years of ethical training; teaching Xander to think would be nearly reflexive.

Great job.
Comments from author:
Thank you for the feedback--I'm glad that my portrayal of Bruce and Xander ring so true for you. Bruce is an extremely ethical character, generally uncompromising in his vision of how the world should be. As Batman, he had a single guiding purpose in his life: infinite justice for the people of Gotham (and, depending on your canonical source, the world). As he is now, he's having to rethink his whole identity and ethical system. Which is more ethical, more morally correct for a person in his situation with his capacities: to devote himself utterly to Xander's growth and well-being, or to enact infinite justice through Xander? What exactly does it mean to be 'Bruce'?

That's Bruce's current quandary. It drives the emotional motor of the story as much as Xander's struggle to forge his own identity and own path.

Thanks again for the review; I hope future installments do not disappoint.
