Review of chapter "Chapter 7: Snyder’s Future" from Difdi
No, Snyder wasn't a 'Stu. Well, not any more than any Twilight vampire is, anyway.

This one surprised me, in a good way! Thank you :)
Comments from author:
Thanks. It was so weird to write a sympathetic Snyder, though.

Review of chapter "Chapter 7: Snyder’s Future" from Insane
I love your story. When I first saw that it would have a likable Snyder, I thought I was going to hate it. But it is very well written and I really like the background you gave him for the reason he was so nasty to others. I also like the Indiana Jones, and Lara Croft references. And again I also liked the way you portrayed Buffy because I usually find her very annoying.
Comments from author:
Yeah, it was hard to write a likeable Snyder too. Figured that giving him a tragic history would go a long way to making it believable. Cool that I could make a Buffy fan out of you - at least for one story.

Review of chapter "Chapter 7: Snyder’s Future" from (Recent Donor)Luna
I LOVE IT!!!!!

I love that he'll be working with LARA CROFT!

I love that both Giles AND Buffy have been knighted!!!!!!!!!! That idea is fabulous! The Watcher's Council should totally get on that shiznit! Like how the wizarding world kicks it with the PM in Hp!

Great job!
Comments from author:
This story certainly was an interesting challenge for me to write. Couldn't help myself with the knighting thing, and once I knighted Giles, Musie demanded to know why the Slayer wouldn't get the same kind of protection.

Review of chapter "Chapter 6: Snyder to the Rescue" from (Recent Donor)Luna

This chapter was epic.

Joyce has a crush...on Giles? I hope not Raynor (*Shivers at first-name basis and damns you again for making me like him*). Still, her and Snyder would be cute.

Neat illusion trick.

Way to go re: Giles staking Spike as an insult

This is really entertaining :)
Comments from author:
To be honest, I don't think I really had a particular crush in mind for Joyce; just wanted to let people come to their own conclusions.

Spike didn't deserve to be staked by a Slayer.

Review of chapter "Chapter 5: Snyder, the Adult Years" from (Recent Donor)Luna

ew. Nice to see him crop up in the 'verse at this stage.

Like that Buffy would be into archeology, considering that she hates history :)
Comments from author:
Hey, you need an evil teenage flunky, who better than Warren?

In my mind, archeology is different enough from the dry history from books that is shoved down Buffy's throat in school. You know, the whole 'makes history come alive' kind of excitement.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3: Snyder, the Early Years" from (Recent Donor)Luna
Even Giles looked a tad disappointed when she refused, although he claimed to be proud of her maturity.


And the ending was...surprisingly touching. Oh man. I think I like Snyder now.

*realizes she will never watch BTVS S1-3 the same again*

Damn you, mmooch.
Comments from author:
Scary to redeem irritating/nasty people 'cause it makes you wonder if it could have happened on the show.

Review of chapter "Chapter 2: I’m Your What?!" from (Recent Donor)Luna
Yes! Angel is referred to as the guy she had a crush on! This means (I hope) no Angel!

I don't hate Angel. Actually I like him. Just not in fanfic with Buffy. I can enjoy him on the show but can't when reading fanfic because I *know* he's not right for her and she can do better :)

Also, this concept is outrageous. I adore thee.
Comments from author:
Nope, absolutely no BAngel if I can help it. It's early enough in the show that I could bring in Oz - or maybe Tara - for a 'ship with Buffy. There's a few other BtVS/AtS characters I don't mind with her.

Review of chapter "Chapter 4: Snyder, the School Years" from BuffyKaibaHunt
Neat chapter! :) I especially like this part:

“Does anyone know what Snyder’s malfunction is? Why we’re in detention?” Cordelia’s voice almost reached screeching levels as she huffed over to her seat.

“I know what you mean,” Larry agreed, sitting on the desk next to her. “It was weird when he gave me my slip. All I did was knock a girl’s books to the floor and stare at her while she picked them up. It’s not as if he hasn’t seen me do that a thousand times before, but now it’s suddenly ‘bullying’ and has to stop.”

One of the jocks pointed to himself and his teammates while he added, “And he stopped Jonathon from giving us our homework assignments; told us we had to do them ourselves or we couldn’t play on Friday. Then he gave us detention for trying to cheat, but let the geek go.”

“Exactly!” Queen C screeched again. “And just because I told some losers to get away from me at lunchtime, suddenly I’m a bully, too.”

“Think maybe we should teach him a lesson?” Larry asked, cracking his knuckles in a threatening fashion. He never beat up a teacher before, but didn’t mind making an exception in this case.

Cordy looked at him like he was deficient – which he quite possibly was. Didn’t he realize that he’d get expelled or something for that? – then sniffed haughtily, “It would probably be better if I had Daddy talk to the school board about him.”

Very brilliant, and very awesome, too. :)
Comments from author:
I know I was kinda mean to Larry, but I don't have a high opinion of bullies.

I like it. Very well-written as well as awesome. :)

Thanks. Making Snyder the hero was certainly a challenge for me.

Review of chapter "Chapter 7: Snyder’s Future" from clarityfades
You definitely made him likable...if not a Snyder-Stu. Honestly, with that character, I think you came as close to a Snyder-Stu as possible! LOL I really liked this fic, even though I'm not at all a fan of Twilight. Terrific job! :)
Comments from author:
I've actually never read any Twilight books or watched the movies. My knowledge comes from wiki and fanfic. And every once in a great while, I get the urge to write an annoying character as a decent person.

Review of chapter "Chapter 7: Snyder’s Future" from (Current Donor)Shieldage
Heh, had to read this in one sitting. I got pulled in. Not one of the best story/worlds I've seen, but pretty darn good.

The mind boggles. Good background for Rayner Snyder... Um, well, one with flaws/holes but nonetheless riveting.

Buffy was secretly knighted? Awesome... I guess they had the official ceremony held privately in England, in absentia, once they had her name and location? Sweet.

In keeping with the Twilight atmosphere. Coincidences are stretched thin. Illusion is an awesome power and what he needs to operate normally. Yep. So... Well-written story that's highly vulnerable to 'Fridge Logic' so the challenges ya set for yourself were well executed.
Comments from author:
Had to look up the meaning of 'Fridge Logic' and decided that as long as it was that and not a plot hole, I could live with it. (

I've never watched/read Twilight, so I'm stuck with what I've read in fanfic and wiki. That's the main reason that I didn't attempt to delve more into that fandom. The illusion thing was an actual power that I read about one of the Sparklepires having though.

*Zafrina- visual illusions or take away their sight* (whoever she/he is)

There's been so many fics that I've read that have Sir Rupert Giles, and I actually like the idea, but thought it was a little unfair for the Slayers not to get any recognition from the Crown.

Glad you enjoyed it. It certainly was...interesting to write.

Review of chapter "Chapter 7: Snyder’s Future" from (Past Donor)FireDragon
lol I liked it. Poor guy is alone in the world unless he creates his own childer. O.o woah what a thought.
Comments from author:
Yikes! Not sure how I feel about that. He just needs to find an immortal woman to love. Maybe somebody from Highlander?

Review of chapter "Chapter 7: Snyder’s Future" from winddancer
An interesting premise, I for one never envisioned Snyder as a 'person' and I am a bit embarrassed (but only a bit as he was deliberately presented as a rouge) to admit it. As usual a fine job Author, and it shows an open mindedness that is quite balancing.
Comments from author:
Musie was in a twisted mood when she came up with this plan. She's making me write all these nice stories for characters I didn't especially like on the show.
