Review of chapter "Only a Slayer" from Valkyrie
Review:
The red might've been nice too. Black was always ill-defined.
Comments from author:
The problem I have with red is that at some level, it is still the person's responsibliity because it is their desires. With the black - at least as we were shown on Smallville - they are two separate entities.

Review of chapter "Only a Slayer" from toastbox
Review:
Very cool. So I take that the black stone thingie replicated The slayer but not the Buffy persona? Can I also assume that the stone thingie separated The slayer from Buffy Summers, leaving Buffy without any slayer powers? :P

I love the way how you didn't name the casualties after Walsh. It's like putting us readers in the perspective of SlayerBuffy, kinna like she doesn't care who she kills as long as they have the evil taint.

Thanks for writing!
Comments from author:
Yup, since they are kind of two different sides to Buffy, the Slayer was pulled out of the human - kind of like Toth was trying to do in season 5...except without the nasty side effect of joint survival causing problems.

I thought by not naming the other characters that it would feel less like an anti-others story (by pointing out they had a taint on them). Glad you enjoyed it.

Review of chapter "Only a Slayer" from zigpal
Review:
Nice. Too bad Quentin himself didn't try to personally stop the Slayer. That would have been fun to read.
Comments from author:
I don't think he would have dirtied himself with ever using dark magick, so she probably wouldn't have killed him. Broken some bones, maybe, not not killed.

Review of chapter "Only a Slayer" from Gideon
Review:
Meh, I think it could have been darker :D But that probably would have meant using quite a bit more gore too. Good work on showing what might happen when some of the humanity is removed from the Slayer demon. I'm not sure who the man who "shared his body with evil" is supposed to be though?
Also I was disappointed that you had Slayer!Buffy read a manual. Slayers are better than that! They magically know all weapons and how to use them! Slayer!Buffy should laugh at the thought of reading a manual! For shame!
Anyway, a fun story if we don't take it too seriously.
Comments from author:
Plus I didn't want to say the actual names of the characters the Slayer was killing - aside from Walsh, that is. I realize he wasn't in Sunnydale yet in season 4, but I thought it would be cool for the Slayer to take out Ben before Glory became a big threat.

Sorry, I was going to have her use the C4 instinctively, but then I thought some instruction was necessary to keep it even remotely plausible. As much as a story like this could be, anyway.

Review of chapter "Only a Slayer" from RevDorothyL
Review:
Not gory, but VERY dark and scary, especially given the Slayer's almost clinical approach to identifying evil to eradicate (kind of like the Slayer version of Maggie Walsh, in terms of thought processes, though even Maggie's thinking was clouded by human emotions, or she'd never have been skewered by Adam).
Comments from author:
Thankfully she was created to go after demonic evil, not just evil in general. Otherwise the world's population would take a dramatic down turn.

EDIT: It was different in the Initiative because the Slayer was freshly awakened and pissed off and they kept attacking her, and at W&H because the humans were serving evil.

Review of chapter "Only a Slayer" from Ramenth
Review:
This seems a little... eh when compared to your usual stuff. It's not bad, but, it's a little self indulgent and nothing particularly interesting happens. It might have been more interesting to see the original idea given a real exploration instead of just blowing everything up from the start.

It's worth pointing out too that "The Slayer didn't directly kill Buffy, she was killed in the collapse" is quite possibly the least convincing excuse ever, given that The Slayer caused the collapse.
Comments from author:
I just meant that the Slayer didn't kill Buffy personally like she did the other humans in the building. Buffy was more...collateral damage.

Review of chapter "Only a Slayer" from CPTSkip
Review:
You have a strange and disturbing mind. Your story, which I liked in a strange and disturbing way, is why I hope God is a god of mercy and not justice. We all are evil at one level or another and I think the Avenging Slayer would eventually get around to killing everyone on Earth given enough time. Thanks so much, Maggie. Lol!
Comments from author:
But she went after those touched by demonic evil, not everyday human evil. Otherwise, the town's population would have gone down waaaay more than it did.

Review of chapter "Only a Slayer" from Cristina
Review:
Oh wow, talk about idiot Dr. Walsh
Comments from author:
Yup, definitely broke more than her fair share of eggs for that omelet, and I have no clue what I'm trying to say with that. *grin*
