Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from azulkan
Really great set of stories. Description fits Buffy to a tee. Glad Xander found a better life.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from cannonfly
Loved both stories. Since both referenced Xander coming back, do you plan to write what happens when he does? I would love it if you did.
Comments from author:
Not exactly. I do have plans for a 3rd story, if my Muse ever decides to write it. The problem is my Muse has been on vacation and doesn't seem to like the idea of going back to work.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from sjyu
Love both stories, Xander is so funny not blackmailing anyone. And I could feel the sadness from Giles and Joyce, especially when they discover how much Xander did and how bad the girls have been.

I know the muse doesn't work on command and if it's not in the mood, it's not in the mood, but I'd love to see the followup stories of Faith and the whiney ones. But do understand if you don't.

Good to see that Faith will have help. And that they understand where she comes from and why she did the things she did.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from RioM
Blackmail and this are great stories, and I hope you will add more to this series. I'd love to find out how Buffy & Willow react to Xander's 'death' and how things continue in Sunnydale and with SG-1. Thanks for writing this.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from bashful
This story really needs a follow up where Giles and Joyce confront Buffy and Willow.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from djhardim
I was reading this story again when I noticed the following - Joyce and Giles share a look between them before Joyce said, "Last time Buffy was over for dinner she was complaining about how she running low on stakes and wondering when Xander would be back to make her more."

In chapter 2 we have the following - 'Willy continued with his tale, "As I heard it, it was just after ya guys finish the Mayor that the girl ran up to your Slayer and whispered something in her ear. What it was I got no clue but just after that your girl slugged the boy...'

I'm not sure that Buffy remembers what she did to Xander. It sounds as if the girl did something to her.

It's more like Buffy forgave Xander and expects him to come home like a good puppy now that he's forgiven

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from Oxnate
Good stuff. Nice to look at things from another point of view. I agree with everything said about Faith as well. It almost seemed like she was literally pushed into the arms of the Mayor.

Just putting another vote for more of this story. Either from Buffy/Willow... or maybe Faith? How does Faith react waking up in an Army hospital with people thinking that she's dangerous but not necessarily a psycho killer? I think that story line has a lot more promise.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from Wolflady
Are you going to write another story to show Buffy and Willow's reactions?

FYI: I have noticed that a lot of people still believe that you can still get the military or jail choice. Sorry, as a former Army recruiter, that hasn't been in effect since shortly after Vietnam. Current military standards won't let you in if you have so much as an outstanding parking ticket.
Such a 'choice' would have the case open until the actual enlistment. Can't be done. The case has to be resolved (dismissed, fines paid or jail time served) before a recruiter could do anything with you. And even then some crimes will ensure that you can't get in. Drugs, weapons violations, almost all felonies come to mind.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from janeaverage
Interesting perspective. I kind of wish Joyce had been this aware of Buffy's faults in the series. All the characters had their issues of course, but Buffy did seem to poison everyone around her... even if the show never really acknowledged that.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from wiltryit
Really good story. Hope you continue it sometime. Would love to be bug on the wall when Buffy and Willow find out that Xander is 'dead'.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from Wolflady
Comments from author:
**sigh** It seems like everyone wants me to write a fic in which the whining bitches find out what happens. I'll try to tempt my Muse into it but she really doesn't like them.

I don't either, generally. However, this would be a great time to gang up on them.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from Godogma
evilredknight rarely if ever reads the stories he reviews from what I can tell; generally a story can never mention Buffy or mention her only briefly and do so in the canon manner and get these kinds of reviews from him/her/it as well.

He's a Buffy fanion, never mind the fact that her bad decisions generally lead to people dying (sometimes a lot of them). Most Xander-fans don't focus on his mistakes only making him better - sometimes upgrading him because he was the token "normal" human of the group and sometimes by actually having him make up for his mistakes (what few I can remember of them they were actually fairly minor typical high school mistakes for the MOST part save for the backfiring love spell incident; the Fluke was just as much Willow's fault as his, she participated and there was no rape involved, another conveniently forgotten fact by most fanions of Buffy/Willow/insert super powered numbskull from the series here).

Yes, Xander made some mistakes during the series which are neither here nor there - that's not the point, but he's generally willing to ignore everyone else's and rant entirely about Xander. Key advice, ignore this person - he's never going to be constructive about his reviews and also never going to be in favor of any story with Xander in it with a favorable light cast upon him as a character.

You're writing excellent fiction that I personally have no problems with aside from some issues I'll outline in another paragraph; yes Buffy genuinely after a certain point has to be broken in the head to act the way she does. And Willow turns into her redheaded Harmony after a while in the series and couldn't care less about her previous best friend - and no one ever mentions their other best friend Jessie/Jesse (I have no idea how that is supposed to be spelled via the show and have seen guys and gals spell it both ways so I give up on that part).

My only problems are generally somewhat in the portrayal of Joyce and Giles in this fic, I'm not sure why but I don't believe the dialogue is quite right and sometimes some of the dialogue involving him going "Ripper" so to speak is somewhat off base - but as authors we have to come up with that facet of his personality ourselves we were never shown it in particular focus enough to be able to say "there that is Ripper Giles" with any idea its going to come off correct.

I enjoy your stories so please, do keep writing :)
