Review of chapter "47" from ChefJackButler
That was pretty fantastic. Good job. And it ended in a way I didn't really see coming.

Review of chapter "47" from moldavia
Very well written story. I liked Cordelia's character development a lot as well as Faith's. I was expecting the latter but the former surprised me. A job very well done!

Thank you for a very interesting read!
Comments from author:
I never even intended this to be a Cordy fic originally, nor for her to become so important, but a reader convinced me otherwise and I think it ended up much stronger for it. Thank you!

Review of chapter "47" from JonnWolfe
This was wonderful and I'm very sad to see it end. Pairing it up with Angel the Series for a continuation would be cool, though.

Honestly though... this is one of - if not THE - best Faith based series I've read.

Completely Wonderful!

P.S. Also: You had me in tears in more than one spot. Faith's breakdown especially.
Comments from author:
I do plan to do a sequel once I'm ready...thank you very much! Lol somehow it gives me sadistic glee to think my writing can make people cry

Review of chapter "47" from lunalurker
Congrats on making it to the end of this little epic! It was a fun and different ride, even with how amazingly overwrought and babbling things got here and there, and I always love some good Faith character development and redemption. Thank you for writing. :)
Comments from author:
Thanks! Glad you liked at least some of it

Review of chapter "47" from trongod
Helluva ride, Chief, and it has me doing some more thinking about things...

Ya dirty low down author! Making me /think/, what's that all about?!?!?
Comments from author:
That's the goal, lol...I like fluff and action as much as anyone but I tend to be more of a thinker and I guess that's how I write. Thanks!

Review of chapter "47" from MarcusSLazarus
Kind of regret that you've got no plans for a sequel- it might be interesting to see what kind of impact Faith's presence has on Cordelia's time in L.A.; maybe she'd meet that director she met in the 'Birthday' AU while Faith runs into Angel?-, but you still had an interesting story here nevertheless.
Comments from author:
Thank you! nope, no plans now or ever, and actually no Buffy plots in mind seriously as of now, I'm about to write an original story

Review of chapter "43" from MarcusSLazarus
I know little about ‘Saving Grace’, but I certainly can’t fault the concept that you’ve got here, I’ll give you that much.

Faith’s initial meeting with Earl and his reasons for being sent to her in that appearance were rather interesting, and while I have some doubts about the ‘deus ex machina’ nature of the ‘reset’ he carried out- if nothing else, the fact that Finch never tried to make contact with the Slayers ‘again’ when he must have had some reason for doing so the first time didn’t make sense to me-, subsequent developments were rather interesting in areas such as Faith’s sudden inability to lie (Although I would have thought Earl would make some exceptions for areas where Faith didn’t REALISE that she was lying).

A couple of Cordelia’s reasons for having trouble with Buffy seemed a bit over-the-top- even if SOCIALISING with Buffy cost her some things, it’s not like Marcie or that demon-worshipping fraternity were there just because of Buffy-, but Faith’s next encounter with Finch was unquestionably effective, and the dynamic you developed between Faith and Cordelia continues to impress, as their formerly ‘necessary’ bond becomes more friendly as they make the decision to stay together after the Chases vanish even when they don’t have to, culminating in what I have a feeling will be a VERY interesting relationship for however long it lasts...

ADDENDUM: Poor phrasing on the Finch situation (I wrote that bit before he reappeared and forgot to correct it); with that issue in mind, I was more surprised that it took him that long to show up 'again'.
Comments from author:
I saw the first two seasons of Saving Grace, it's a show that grew on me. Seemed a perfect pairing for Faith, Grace was not only a similar sort of person in her problems, past, and behavior, but also had an ironic virtue name.

Finch did try to contact the Slayers again, that's when Faith saw him die again...

Thank you...I hope you do indeed find them interesting as the end draws near lol

Review of chapter "45" from PATM
Buffy says that word "Lover"! I wouldn't have expected it from her at all. All together a great lead up chapter of events leading to some grim action in the next chapter. Looking forward to it.
Comments from author:
Lol I wouldnt' either, but she said it in canon and that seemed an important line and indicative of her mindset. Thanks :)

Review of chapter "44" from (Past Donor)betascud
Interesting, even if a bit too close to Canon Rails...

I wonder what you will do about the season finale and Buffy/Angel series split. I think an end to this story and then an eventual sequel would be in order. As for the setting of the said sequel... I vote for L.A.
Comments from author:
The end is fast approaching and then you'll plans for a sequel now though, this one alone is near 1000 pages

Review of chapter "43" from PATM
I can't get rid of the feeling that a sympathy snog is in progress here. Willow's fascination with that kiss at the prom rings true in Cordy's rant. Some Asian girl who gets dumped...geez. Good kissing talent indeed.
Comments from author:
Nope, no sympathy snog...but this definitely doesn't mean they're together as in a couple. As for the Asian girl who gets dumped...well that is a direct reference to Buffy's going to bed with Asian Slayer Satsu in season eight of the comics...meant to be a little in joke for whoever has read the comics, lol.

Review of chapter "42" from (Current Donor)Ironbear
Interesting. I like the Prom scenes so far, and I love Cordy's dressing down of Willow.

On the other hand, I'm more than a bit "meh" on the "Faith buys Cordy's prom dress" thing here. It really takes away one of the all time best Xander moments of Season 3, and one of the best Xander/Cordy post-breakup moments. I can't see it as being really neccessary to the flow of the storyline - it seems awfully gratuitous to me: more like a matter of just changing something that really didn't need changing, just for the sake of changing it.

It doesn't kill my enjoyment of the story, but it does lessen it a bit.

And, did I miss something? What happened to Tucker Wells and the attack trained Hellhounds? Did they just vanish from the storyline? Or did they get a one or two line off camera resolution and I overlooked it?
Comments from author:
Xander didn't buy Cordelia's prom dress because Xander doesn't know that he would need to. He is still unaware of the fact that Cordelia's parents are gone. And throughout this story he and Cordy have been edging, through Faith, towards being okay with each other anyway, that really wasn't necessary to this story.

Yes, the hellhounds were mentioned in a paragraph or two, Buffy dealt with them alone, Willow had her things for her to change into in the girls' locker room. Since Buffy dealt with this alone, it really wasn't necessary to write out the entire thing.
