Comments from author:
I'm glad you've liked it, but I just got back to writing, after taking about a month off dealing with some personal family issues. I'm hoping my muse will strike me soon though, since I've really enjoyed writing it.

Thank you for the review.

Review of chapter "Chapter Twelve" from Nuklear
Review:
Ya know I really enjoying this fic, but I am wondering if the events in the movie are going to happen but if they do I am really looking forward to Brian showing up so Mia can drive home the point that she's not interested in Vince once and for all... got to wonder how Xander will react to that.

edit: Sorry I didn't like Vince at all, in fact my two favorite scenes in the movie are when Mia asks him where he kept asking her to take him only to turn around and tell Brian that's where they will go on there date right in front of Vince ( classic heart crushing brush off ) and where the trucker is using him for target practice while he's dangling from his truck, the guy's parents definitely dropped the ball when it comes to women I mean Mia was all but beating him to death with the fact she wasn't interested in him but he didn't back off
Comments from author:
I wanted Xander and Vince put aside their baggage, because I really didn't want to have animosity between the two. It would be a little too much like the movie. While I agree that Vince looked like a dick in the movie, he was actually justified in everything he said and did, considering Brian really was a cop.

This story will eventually turn into a series. That said, the first FatF movie will happen in between the first and second stories. I purposely set it up this way, so that C&X's story wouldn't be interrupted by those issues.

I hope this doesn't put you off to the story though, thanks for the review.

Review:
What an interesting life our Alex leads.. LOL
I love the support for Alex and truly like the characters. Congrats!
Comments from author:
This chapter, I wanted to show a little more of what he did besides racing, and I figured this was the proper way to do so. With the characters, I just wanted people to see that it was more of a family, then a simple crime ring.

As always, thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eleven" from Elgin
Review:
I have got to be honest about something:

I have never seen the 'Fast and the Furious' films.

However.

Having read the first eleven chapters of this 'fic, I'm tempted to give them a try the next time of them's on the airwaves. This is the first time I've ever been tempted in such a fashion from reading one fanfic.

At any rate, regardless of whether the 'Fast and the Furious' films turn out to be my mug of tea or not, this 'fic most certainly IS.

Your characterisation work is simply excellent. I know, my lack of familiarity with the F&TF characters means I don't know how closely you're sticking to canon or not; but quite frankly, I don't see that as a problem. You've presented a cast of interesting and fully fleshed-out characters, and moreover you've done so in an entertaining manner.

You've also successfully avoided spewing out reams and reams of big blocks of expositional prose that read more like academic essays than entertaining fiction. A lot of writers (both fanfic and commercial) simply haven't got the talent, patience or both to avoid that particular pitfall, so it's a far greater achievement than you might initially think.

Then there's the Ballad of Cordy and Xander. Your approach to this has, quite frankly, intrigued me a great deal, and I'm definitely interested in seeing where you're going to take their relationship next. So far they seem to be well on their way to forming a strong friendship, with a strong possibility for later romance. Irrespective of whether they can make things work well between them this time around or if they crash and burn again, given how this 'fic has turned out so far, I'm certain that reading the future chapters will be _quite_ a ride to take.

So, good luck with your future literary endeavours, and I'm definitely looking forward to Chapter Twelve over here. Best wishes, and ride free! ;)

Comments from author:
Originally, I wrote in first-person with Xander because I found it easier as a new writer. After doing the same with Cordelia starting in chapter 8 of Headhunters, I realized I'd found my niche.

I like to keep things simple, there have been too many stories I started out liking, and then got bored with it because of exposition. Super-long paragraphs just grate on my nerves.

I switch POV's back and forth to keep things fresh, and I like readers to know exactly why the characters are doing what they're doing. If the reader loses the connection, what's the point?

With the FatF characters, I've had to improvise a bit. Since the movie had a large, ensemble cast, more then a few characters weren't filled out. Considering the sequels vary wildly with which characters are in them, it hasn't gotten much easier.

I've tried to take who they are, and give them more, without getting into stereotypes. It would be easy to simply paint them as thugs and criminals, but that's not who the characters are, and that isn't the type of people I could see C&X realistically wanting to associate with.

Most of my C/X stories take place post-breakup. Mostly because I liked the idea of the two of them growing up a bit, and seeing what they'd missed. It's never about just throwing them back together, and poof, they're a couple again.

While some people feel I drag it out, I'm more inclined to believe that there is no way in hell they'd bump into each other and just decide to make out. I prefer to let the characters realize on their own, that they belong together.

To be honest, I would at the very least see the original movie. This fic will become a series, and the events of that movie will take place in between the first and second stories. While that won't be happening anytime soon, I do like to give fair warning.

I really appreciate the thought you've put into your review. To see someone take the time to put in that much effort about a story I wrote is very satisfying.

Thank you for the review, and I hope you have a nice new year.

Review:
You've had good insight into their actions so far, and this chapter is no different. You've captured upon several threads of plot with all the characters, and you're weaving them together quite well.
Comments from author:
I try to be realistic, or more to the point, as realistic as I can be, with a story based on a movie on street racers. Having those two just vanish wouldn't make sense, and I have a some nice ideas down the line.

Thanks for the compliment and review, both are appreciated.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eleven" from msdarque
Review:
Bit surprising, but lovely chapter.
Wonderfully solved Wesley and Gunn's situation. The jobs were quite suitable.
Overall, I enjoyed reading it and eagerly waiting for the 'action' after Cordy's decision. ;)
Congrats!
Comments from author:
I like both Wes and Gunn's characters, and I wanted to keep the jobs suitable to who they are. It also gives me plenty of options for future chapters of this story, or elsewhere.

If things keep going like I hope, you won't have to wait that long, there should be some action next chapter. Unless it's different kind of action you're looking for. ;) If so, it'll come eventually, that's a promise.

Thanks for the review, and I hope you have a happy new year.

Review of chapter "Chapter Ten" from msdarque
Review:
Fun! But poor Alex.. trying to do the right thing. I do hope it'll show Cordy how wonderful he is.
I so love reading this. All the suspense is great.
Congrats!
Comments from author:
That's what I was hoping for. I'm sure at this point, there is serious lust between the two, but I wanted more then that. Right now, it's all up to Cordy.

I'm glad you've liked it, it's appreciated. Thanks for the review, and have a happy new year.

Review of chapter "Chapter Ten" from bucksavage
Review:
Interesting turn of events. Cordelia must really be wondering what's going on here...she usually thought her shake brought the boys to the yard...gah...(did I really just say that?) and here's Xander seeming keeping her at a distance. Though I can see his point. He doesn't want her to get into a situation she'll later decide she doesn't like but ends up FUBAR.
Comments from author:
That shake could bring anyone to her yard, no sane man could turn that down. I really wanted to show Xander taking the high road though. Instead of just trying to plow her, actually giving her a reality check, and some time to think it over.

Thanks for the review, and have a happy new year.

Review of chapter "Chapter Ten" from DarthPayne
Review:
Ooh, i like.

It was nice seeing the 'Dogma' part too. :)
Comments from author:
Dogma is surprisingly easy to use in the Buffy-verse. Instead of getting overly complicated with such things, there are characters that everybody pretty much knows. To be honest though, I don't see anything like that happening in this fic again.

Thank you for the review, and have a happy new year.

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from msdarque
Review:
Great chapter! Cute and 'patronizing' a bit... all fun. :D
Congrats!
Comments from author:
I know what you mean, I never want Cordy to come off as an idiot, but I just don't see her having any reason to know anything about a car but how to drive it. That of course, will change in the future. Glad you've liked it.

Thanks for the review, and have a nice Christmas.

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from bucksavage
Review:
This chapter was frakking hilarious! Xander and Cordelia didn't even stop their bickering WHILE the other driver pulled up to them at the light. That was funny as hell, btw.
Comments from author:
Glad you liked it. No matter what was going on, C&X never seemed to mind laying into each other, I didn't want to make this situation any different.

Also, the fact that the fool in the car instantly got every ounce of her ire, was all the better. I wish there were more Cordelia's in the world to deal with douche bags like that.

Thanks for the review, and have a nice Christmas.
