Review of chapter "Milestones" from Dapsy
This is a dark story... in fact, very dark... and very good even if hard to read(not because it is badly written, but it because it is a heavy story)... it has really no powertrips, nor is it loaded with romantic nonsensical relationships... good stuff.

Review of chapter "Milestones" from CPTSkip
I'm not sure what happened to my final review of this story, but it seems to have disappeared. Oh, well.

I loved this evil story. Terrible things happened to Buffy and yet she endured. Giles and Spike were very nicely shown to grow and change because of how they tried to help Buffy. All in all, this was a marvelous additon to Buffy fanfic. If someday you ever decide to write more, I'd like to see you bring in Faith. You never mentioned if Buffy saw "Faith" in Hell so I wonder if she might bring some healing and support to Buffy as she healed herself.

Now that you have "ended" this story, might I ask for more of your story about immortal Tara? Please? Lol!
Comments from author:

First of all, thank you so much for the constant support!

What happened to the missing review was that I originally posted when the site was about to be moved and it got lost then. I knew it was going to happen, I wasn't supposed to update when I did but I preferred to have to reupload at a later date than to leave readers hanging before the final chapter (I know, bad me).

I'm glad you liked the story, however I can tell you that even if I decide to continue "Hell" chances are Faith won't be making an appearence because I can't really justify her presence. Future additions are more likely to take the form of companion pieces from other characters' POVs than new developments in the main plot. If you like Faith I can tell you that "Friends and Foes" will take place in season 3 so she does play a pretty major role in that one.

As for "Cassie", I'm afraid that story is complete at three parts... I really don't see myself adding to it, so sorry about that.

Review of chapter "Visiting" from CPTSkip
I know this is going to sound strange, but sometimes I am glad you write short updates. The intensity of your story is such that short chapters are about all I can sometimes take. Great writing though.

Review of chapter "Sleeping" from CPTSkip
Yet another good update. But what is it with the cliffhanger? Lol! You are an evil bard! While Cutiepie and I are your most persistant, I mean loyal, reviewers, I am sure that there are hundreds of other fans of your story who look forward to every update. It is just difficult to say, "Great story!" when we are talking about a main character who has spent time in Hell and is trying to come back to life. I am still "enjoying" your wonderful writing, characterizations, and insights and hope you keep writing.

Review of chapter "Sleeping" from Phidan
I've been guilty of failing to review your story, and I apologise. I'm very impressed by your writing and I've been fascinated by the story, I'm happy to see a new chapter posted whenever it appears. Using Giles as the Voice was an inspired decision, and I love the way you are presenting a slow, sometimes painful progress for Buffy. This is a very special story and deserves more attention -- and more good reviews. Please keep writing, it is appreciated, even if not enough of us are reviewing!

Review of chapter "Slaying" from Cutiepie
That was rather a heavy update. Just when I think that she is well on the road to being back to normal, you remind me of all the tons of things that she still needs to overcome. But, I was glad to read that she was to the point that she can handle going out without Giles right there, like to Tara's Art History class. That is a huge step forward. Oh, and that she didn't freeze up (despite being almost frantic) when she took out the two fledges.

Hm...I notice that CPTSkip and I seem to be your most frequent reviewers. I better keep up, so you don't feel forgotten or something. =] 'Course, his reviews are superb. =D

Review of chapter "Slaying" from CPTSkip
Yes! Buffy is back on the road to vampire Buttkickingville. I am amazed that just reading that your Buffy was able to take out two fledgling actually made me feel great. You are writing such a great story and I look forward to seeing Buffy grow even stronger. I hope Giles is a pessimist and she will someday "get over" her hellish experience. Please keep up the good work.

Review of chapter "Vampires" from Cutiepie
Not much action in this chapter, but it filled in some necessary facts for us readers. I agree with the assessment that Spike has (for probably his whole existence) been a care-taker. First his mother and her sickness, then Dru and her insanity. Then, almost as a natural progression, he took over caring for Dawn and Buffy, and even Willow and Tara, as much as he could. Now, I am wondering why that is. I guess I never really thought about it before. Why did his caring ability overcome the natural feelings and urges of the vampiric demon? Hmmm. =]

Review of chapter "Vampires" from CPTSkip
I loved Giles' (your) viewpoint on the character of Spike. I always felt he was one of Joss' most complex creations. Your story and characterization are still first rate. I look forward to the next chapter with a great deal of anticipation.

Review of chapter "Doubts" from Cutiepie
*sigh* Things just never go easy for them, do they? It's especially horrid to me that Buffy has felt like a failure for so long. I (unfortunately) can identify with that feeling. I'm glad to see that Tara was able to recognise at least part of Buffy's problem, but I'm rather disappointed in Xander. He is supposed to be "the one that sees" and he is sure acting blind in some ways here. I think it's Spike that causes his biggest blind spot. =[ Anyway, thanks for the update! I am enjoying following this story (even with all the tough stuff). =]

Review of chapter "Recruiting" from CPTSkip
Tara's stutter was an important part of showing she knows what is going on. It was nessissary. I am so glad you showed us the others were picking up on Buffy's "problem". I was sort of wondering why a group of smart people didn't see what was going on. Now we know they know ... something ... is going on with Buffy. Maybe now that Tara is in on some of the secret, Willow can also be eased into the Knowing Circle. I am still enjoying your story.

Review of chapter "Routine" from CPTSkip
I loved the Giles' eye view of the Scooby interpersonal dynamics. Yes, Tara is the best choice. Even in the TV series, when things got really bad, everyone went to Tara. With Joyce gone, Tara was the Scoobies' mother-figure. Not to mention, poor Giles must need some help. Not to mention, some time for himself. Thanks for continuing to share your story with us.

Review of chapter "Shopping" from CPTSkip
I am sure it is just me, but I found this chapter to be very funny. I have two younger sisters and I once (and only once) went with them when they needed to buy new shoes. It must be a female thing because they kept asking me for my opinion about pairs of shoes that I thought were absolutely identical. So this chapter made me laugh at poor Giles and his male reaction to the shoe buying "thing". Nice to have a bit of the happy in your story.
Comments from author:
I never got the shoe thing either... I guess I flunked girllyness 101.

Review of chapter "Words" from Cutiepie
OK, I get it now. Yep, that's a sneaky way around the conditioning. I hope it works for him. And shoe shopping? Wow, that's daring of him. What's he going to do? Walk her into the store and say "pick out a pair of shoes"? Then, what if there isn't a pair she likes? Hmmm. I know, I'm begging for trouble. Thanks for the update! =]
Comments from author:
Giles is going to have to be sneaky to beat this thing ad it won't be as simple as that, but it will be something along those lines.

Review of chapter "Words" from (Past Donor)elementalv
Definitely an up note at the end, because yes, I can see that Giles with all that he's faced would find that to be the ultimate horror. Beautiful.
Comments from author:
The sacrifices that poor man makes for his slayer! Okay, I hope the shopping experiment wasn't too disappointing.
