Review of chapter "Secrets Revealed" from (Current Donor)Katrina
Gotta agree with Gypsydruid on this that it was a good way to introduce and take care of the issue before things got out of hand. Worked for me.
Comments from author:
Not entirely nice to Jenny, but to be honest, I wasn't thrilled with her character for hiding this.

You definitely let her off lightly. I liked understanding Angel, much better than canon-controlling-Angel. Great one-shot!
Comments from author:
Personally, I can't stand Jenny, but I thought that I'd be nice to her this time. Same deal with Angel.

Review of chapter "Secrets Revealed" from RevDorothyL
Nope, not too bashy. Seemed very believable, given what happened in canon.
Comments from author:
I know some people are firm believers that she had every right to do what she did; I just don't happen to agree with them. Once she started dating Giles, she should have come clean about why she was there - even if it was only to him.

Review of chapter "Secrets Revealed" from Wormbait
I didn't find it too bashy at all.

After all Janna and her clan do have the right to do what their doing. It's like when Wood wanted to kill Spike for killing his mother and Buffy stupidly tells him he doesn't have the right, how dumb that was. Like if it was Buffys mum he killed she would stop at nothing till he was dead. Espescially when at the time Spike was under the control of the first.

Sorry, rant over.

Very good story, though I still feel sorry for Willow having to dress as the lunch lady. :)
Comments from author:
Unfortunately, the gypsies have put people at risk with their vengeance - not to mention they are punishing a human soul for something a demon did. Their revenge was stupid and dangerous. At least Wood went after the monster that killed his mother; picked a horrible time to do it, but besides that, I actually didn't mind him wanting revenge. After Spike tried to rape Buffy, I kinda wish he was 'blowing in the wind'.

EDIT: Actually, I wish he was blowing in the wind back in season 4 when he showed up at Giles' place with a chip in his head.

Review of chapter "Secrets Revealed" from GypsyDruid
Actually, I think it's and the good loophole-y way of getting Jenny's real purpose out in the open before it becomes a major clusterfuck. Too bad it didn't really happen that way. Good job.
Comments from author:
But then Buffy wouldn't have had to kill her lover and be tortured with that for the rest of her life! Joss couldn't let that happen; angsty Buffy was good BtVS.

Review of chapter "Secrets Revealed" from (Recent Donor)SlayerandWereLeopard
not to bashy - though I hope they make up soon. Ohh will buffy gain techno pagan or gypsy powers?
Comments from author:
No clue. I suppose it's up to the readers since this is a oneshot.

Review of chapter "Secrets Revealed" from (Moderator)Ava
Does this mean Gage won't get turned into a creepy fish-guy? Nice.
Comments from author:
Is that really an improvement though? Wasn't he kind of a jerk before becoming a fish-guy?

Review of chapter "Secrets Revealed" from Harry
A VERY interesting take on YAHF! While it was harsh on Jenny, it was necessary for the truth to come out, and in a way that prevented Jenny from being killed.
Comments from author:
It's kind of funny; I have opinion from all over the place on whether I was mean to Jenny here. But yeah, at least she won't have her neck broken by Angelus.

Review of chapter "Secrets Revealed" from Rune
No it was not too bashy of Jenny. It play havoc with the rest of the Buffy storyline tho. With Jenny alive will she be able to keep Willow from going dark? Since there is no Angelus what about the Judge episode, will that happen? And without the soldier costume what does that mean to Xander? This is an interesting change you made.
Comments from author:
Yeah, the whole series will have to be re-done 'cause of this. LOL. Wait, that's not a bad thing.

EDIT: Not sure about your other questions. Maybe some good stuff; maybe some bad.

Review of chapter "Secrets Revealed" from Kimera
The story is all right, but I should point out that Jenny didn't know that the curse has a loop hole until her uncle told her about it. At that point in time all she knew about the assignment was that she was suppose to keep an eye on Angel, and send reports about him to her tribe. Other than that I think the story was okay.

Comments from author:
Thanks. Put a little note at the beginning to mark this as AU. I still stand by the opinion that once she became part of the inner circle, she should have told them who she really was. I understand her family obligation, but they were stupid for doing the curse, so they don't deserve the loyalty.

EDIT: I looked at the transcript for Buffy's confrontation with Jenny after Angelus returned, and here's Jenny's reply:

**Jenny: (interrupts) I didn't know... exactly. I was told... (whispers) Oh, God. (speaks) I was sent here to watch you. They told me to keep you and Angel apart. They never told me what would happen.**

To me, even if she didn't know about a loophole, she knew more than she was telling, and that put everyone in danger. Maybe if she had been upfront from the beginning, they could have tried to figure out *why* Angel and Buffy were supposed to be kept apart.

Review of chapter "Secrets Revealed" from Gideon
Actually I thought this came off relatively sympathetic to Jenny. The real problem was that she wasn't told what the loophole in the curse was. (or even if the Gypsys knew more than the "moment of hapiness" line) That is the info Buffy was missing in Becoming. Still Angel still goes to LA and Buffy doesn't have to kill him, Willow doesn't have to recurse him so her magic might be affected too. And Buffy needs a new boyfriend for the year - ok, now I get why Xander was so happy :)
Comments from author:
I put a note to say this was AU to cover the loophole thing. Maybe Buffy can give Owen a second chance. LOL.
