Review of chapter "Balanced Origin" from ChefJackButler
I barely made it to the end of this story, and then kept wondering what the point of it was. It just seemed artificially attenuated, as if you figured that the best way to "increase the drama" was to delay resolution as long as humanly possible. I eventually was reduced to skimming, just to get to the end of it.

Review of chapter "Balanced Origin" from Bigfan
Damn...why are so many good fics abandoned? Nice job on the crossover. Most authors will just jump right in to Xander getting the Witchblade, but I like the fact that you took your time getting him to that point. I really hope your muse returns to you one day, because I would love to see how Xander does with the blade, especially after it seems he's now bonded to it. Excellent writing and great job!

Review of chapter "Balanced Origin" from Dragonhulk
Superb work. I loved the way you had this Witch Blade come into being, and the way you seamlessly integrated the Gargoyles Fey was very well done.
I hope RL isn't going too bad for you and that you'll be back to working on this soon, it really is an excellent work of fiction.

I come back to read this from time to time as it is a personal favorite. The rereads haven't detracted from it. Good work and hope to see more some day!

Review of chapter "Balanced Origin" from tchizek
I loved the chapters where Xanders aspects were separated, that was very cute.
I love Syeira she adds great depth, a good foil for Xander.
Nice handling of the Witchblade's interaction with it's carriers before getting to Xander, then Xander after arriving in Sunnydale.
I will be tracking this!

Review of chapter "Balanced Origin" from Duquette
This is incredible, your story is detailed and full of life, your characters are beautifully drawn and just breath depth into your work, and I don't think I've ever read a more convincing or entertaining back story. Needless to say this is one of the better pieces of fiction I've read all year, and by far the best comic book adaptation I've ever seen. I hope you plan to continue this, and that your life allows you the time to write, cause man do you have a gift for it.

Review of chapter "Balanced Origin" from mlock
Thanks for the update. I like the origin story. Will there be any elements from TNT's Witchblade included in the story? As for Xanatos, will he become Xander's Kenneth Irons?

Review of chapter "Balanced Origin" from Gideon
I like the origin story, very dark but quite fitting, with touches of tragic sacrifice just like the slayer story. With that much power the WB should be able to do even more than Xander could imagine, at least before the ritual. Nice work on making Ted be tougher than in canon. That worked quite well. hearing Buffy spout Watcher's Council propaganda is very sad though. I hope she isn't too mad at Xander when she realises he was there for that conversation.

Review of chapter "Balanced Origin" from Loatroll
Great stuff! Thanks for the tremendous read!
Very well crafted story. I like how you've involved the Kalderdash clan in this. One of the most interesting powerupped Xander stories I've read in some time.

Review of chapter "Balanced Origin" from souldriven
I forgot to leave a review when I first read this chapter and i am very sorry about that. Love the origin for the Buffyverse witchblade even if its on the sad side. I like how Xander gets excused away as a golem but certainly is displaying personality in his armor. Will that raise a red flag with Giles or are golems expected to be a little quirky? Not enough data?
Anyways, i am still greatly enjoying this story and look forward to more.

Review of chapter "Balanced Origin" from prehensileclaw
This is an excellent story. Your origin story was very interesting. I think you mentioned a concern about your action scenes at one point, but you have nothing to worry about.
Thanks for writing and sharing this.
P.S. Xander's reaction to the origin story was perfect.
