Review of chapter "Chapter 5: A Second Chance" from twlight
Review:
Yahooo!!! Xander doesn't have cancer! I am still loving this wonderful story and I am eagerly awaiting more as I am wondering how Xander not being on the Hellmouth will change things for Buffy and how Xander being in Miami will change things for the CSI group.

Review:
could use a bit more involvement/detail but overall a good effort, especially with the writers block.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3: Leaving Sunnydale" from (Recent Donor)JanessaRavenwood
Review:
I think I'm going to drop out here. I don't see it as realistic that Xander would just up and leave Willow and Jesse behind - he was a far more loyal friend than that; this is now too OOC for me.

Review of chapter "Chapter 5: A Second Chance" from Harry
Review:
Its good to see you back to work on this one! And while I can't help with Beta (Working on a RW/BTVS story AND a new chapter for the mega crossover story Code Ragnarok here on TTH), I don't mind leaving a review or two. And as for episodes to twist, how about the one where Calleigh has to use her skills to let Horatio know what is going on with these people that have kidnapped her.

Review of chapter "Chapter 4: A Fresh Start" from (Past Donor)Dianasis
Review:
You made me tear up in the middle of Starbucks. The few bits of verbal roughness are nothing when encased in the pathos of your storytelling. Thanks. :)
Comments from author:
Crying in your coffee. Well, for this story, that's a huge compliment, thank you.

Review of chapter "Prologue: Learning a Secret" from EricJablow
Review:
You know, bone marrow transplantation is almost never the first treatment for any disease, because it is always dangerous. They start off by killing off the patient's existing bone marrow, which can lead to fatal infections. Then, even with a family donor, there's graft-versus-host disease, which is as unpleasant as it sounds. BMT is not a magic bullet.

More realistically, they would have put Xander on chemotherapy, and he'd be in the hospital for a few weeks of pain, as the doctors were trying to induce a remission. Only later if necessary would the doctors search for a BMT match, and only if they determined that an autologous transplant wouldn't work. The story is just moving too fast.

Besides, after a transplant, he'd still be prone to infections, would be on immunosuppressive drugs, and generally need very careful handling.

Some leukemias can only be cured with BMT--AML, for example. But children and teens are more prone to ALL and Hodgkin's disease.

Sorry, but I went through (non-BMT) treatment problems with my mother; I had to do a lot of reading. I've seen too many stories that use transplantation unrealistically.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the info. Chalk it up to questionable doctors at Sunnydale, okay? I do have a plan that should make it okay.

Review of chapter "Chapter 4: A Fresh Start" from Harry
Review:
Well, Xander is just starting to meet the members of his new extended family. He just met the Father of the group in H, and the maternal figure in Alexx. But wait till he gets a look at Calleigh! If she wasn't the sister, he would be going after her in a heartbeat!
Comments from author:
Oh, I think he'll drool over her anyway.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3: Leaving Sunnydale" from Harry
Review:
I think that Speed just found out the hard way why Xander said that Red is the reliable member of the trio. And Willow can be certain about one thing: Speed is a man of his word. He says he will be a good big brother to Xander even when they are grandparents, you can take that to the bank!
Comments from author:
It's nice when you find a good family member.
