Review of chapter "The Honor Guard" from IceBlueRose
Review:
Well, I know who I think Buffy was talking about though I went through a number of possibilities before deciding on Eliot because of his slip in calling her "Sweetheart" and the way you specifically mentioned him stopping to go up to her picture. (I briefly entertained Speed and Oz but Speed seemed to keep it pretty general and the only way I could make Oz fit would be the summer after she killed the Master and then they just never mentioned it. I also thought maybe Pike because that was before things went to hell - almost literally a few times! - in Sunnydale and that was a carefree time for her.) I was curious on who the he was to you though? If you don't want to influence who people think it is, I'd love it if you emailed me or sent a message through here. Though I can't remember if this site does those messages, oops! Anyway, I really loved what you did with this series and I can't decide if the Leverage or Supernatural chapter was my favorite in Bright Eyes. On the one hand, she helped that team (Parker gave her money!) but on the other hand, she saved the Winchesters so much grief and brought them closure and I love that. It doesn't hurt that even ten years later, Sam/Jess is still my favorite Sam pairing so saving her was great, not to mention finding out about the baby and having Mary tell her what happened with John and Dean too! Decisions. Darn it. Anyway, again, this is a great series and I just wanted to let you know that since I didn't remember reading this one and I know I've read a good portion of your stories. I especially love a lot of your venting fics, not gonna lie. I'm sort of hoping there'll come a day where you write one with Dean and Sam Winchester helping/siding with Buffy and ripping in to the Scoobies because of (or during) that awful scene in End of Days - ooooh, that scene still makes me so mad even after all these years. Or Eliot! Heck, what a kick in the ass for the Scoobies if Oz showed up and gave his own Oz version of a smackdown. Or Dom and Brian and the team/family from the Fast & Furious series. Geez, shut me up! LOL.

There are oh-so-many people who could come to Buffy's defense...the list is practically infinite. Oz would be an especially harsh one for Willow - and to a lesser extent, Xander. That's rather tempting to consider.
As for who the mystery guy is in this story, I'll admit that I had a certain guitar-playing, chef/hitter in mind as I typed the scene.

This series is a perfect example of how a seemingly quick birthday ficlet can morph into something huge. It's probably one of my more favorite fics (or series). It kind of put the Scoobies in their place (by pointing out that when she ran away, she was still helping people) without outright bashing them. Even better, Buffy gets to stay in heaven!

I can't believe you won't tell us who 'he' is! I loved this series even if it made me cry :) I hope you consider writing buddy's messages being passed on.
Comments from author:
I know, I'm evil, right? Not sure I'd write a story specifically about the messages being given to the others, but if/when I go further in this series, I might mention it in passing.

Review of chapter "The Honor Guard" from spk
Review:
Loved it! Kind of broke my heart at your mention of Andrew with John Dye's death this past week -- he was always my favorite TBAA character. Loved the people you chose for her guard. As for her "love" interest, I'm going to guess Eliot after his "Sweetheart" remark during the eulogy...and because I just LOVE Christian Kane. But I would seriously love it if you could e-mail me to let me know who you, as the author, pictured her talking about. :)
Comments from author:
He was the sweetest Angel of Death I've ever seen. There was one other person I thought about for her guard, but it totally slipped my mind when I was writing...Doyle. Serious head-smack moment for forgetting him.

Review:
A fitting way for Buffy to move on, saying goodbye to those she cared about. As for the last person, its EASY! ITS GILES!
Comments from author:
LOL. If that's who you want it to be, then sure...it's Giles.

Love the Touched by an Angel moment along with Melinda. Great send off. Nice choice of honor guard.
Comments from author:
I could have smacked my RL friend for bringing up the Ghost Whisperer idea. The story was sooo close to being finished! Of course, the TBaA part already extended it, so I guess there was no harm really done.
