Review:
I have to say I am Imensely enjoying you 'We hate Xander club'. Look forward to reading more. So here's a cookie for your muse for a good job! maybe some of your bashings will off set all the Xander whorsipers out there and they might tone it down a little.... or you might start a bashing war, and lines will be drawn. Who knows all i know is that i like it, it makes me giggle.
Comments from author:
I think it's more likely to start a bash war.

Oh well, Musie is just about done with the anti-Xander stuff now. Yup, even she gets tired of dealing with him, so I'll probably switch to stories where he isn't even mentioned for a while.

Review of chapter "Demon Hunter vs. Slayer" from vampyzeppo
Review:
Here's a bit of advice. Perhaps if you hate Xander so much you might want to avoid a site that is so obviously pro-xander. I mean I don't hang out at pro-spike sites and then complain about how everyone is always saying such nice things about the character. Everyone is entitled to go where they please, but you have to ask yourself if maybe you don't enjoy being riled up about Xander if you frequent a site where he is so popular.
Comments from author:
This is supposedly a site for the show, not the character of Xander. That's why it isn't some cutesy name like 'Zeppoland' or 'The One Who Sees World'. Trust me, if there were a site similar to this one that was strictly pro-Buffy, I'd be there in a flash. Besides, there are a lot of great stories/writers here that I *do* enjoy reading. Sometimes I just have to get my anger at the other ones out. Plus, there are obviously others who like my bashing stories, so if it makes me happy and it makes them happy, it's all good.

Hee! I'll never tire of Xander-bashing! How about just one more for the road? Season 4-5, ish? :) Maybe even a little Giles/Buffy implied? LOL
Comments from author:
You just have to poke Musie, don't you? Well, there is one time when I could see Ripper getting upset with Xander....

Review of chapter "Demon Hunter vs. Slayer" from Shatterstar
Review:
It doesn't really feel like you're bashing canon Xander. More like the god awful tropes surrounding him on this site, which I am perfectly ok with.

Surprised you haven't written a Halloween one yet. Now THERE'S an overdone plot line. I'm sure there are a ton more badly written Xander fanon cliches left on this site...
Comments from author:
I've had some subtle jabs at Xander in Halloween fics, but he's more the background noise to the main part of the story - which is Buffy's costume.

Review of chapter "Demon Hunter vs. Slayer" from MarcusSLazarus
Review:
The Jesse comment perfectly highlights my main problem with some of the more 'pro-Xander' stories; so many of them seem to go on about how Buffy should just kill Angelus- I even read one where he seemed to be the only person willing to stake what they thought at the time was Vamp Willow-, but when you get down to it he's NEVER been able to do that kind of thing in the show...

I could cope with fics where Xander's just another guy; it's this OBSESSION with making him some demon-busting machine that I dislike (Even Halloween-based 'upgrades' will only go so far).
Comments from author:
If you ever see me writing a story like that, just know that either I've had a conk on the head or there's something more going on that will be revealed in time.

I've watched the scene with Jesse and Xander several times and there's just no way that Xander should have killed him. When Jesse gets knocked into him, the stake is pointed at the base of Jesse's throat, for crying out loud! So unless a chip of it broke off and travelled through his bloodstream to the heart, that stake wasn't in Jesse's heart.

Review of chapter "Demon Hunter vs. Slayer" from jormunguard
Review:
I have to admit that I usually don't like bashing fics. However, after the vast majority of God-Xander fics, its a refreshing change of pace. I mean I just read a fic that had Xander gaining the memories and some of the personality of one of the biggest megalomaniacs in the Marvel Universe and even after Buffy investigated the character she had no problem with the changes to Xander's attitudes and personalities in fact she was actually falling in love with him. WTF.

But thank you for the stories.

Review of chapter "Demon Hunter vs. Slayer" from darkwoofe
Review:
Bash away. Something is needed to counter all of these super Xander, and Flawless Xander stories. Seriously, I liked the guy in the from season three up til he reverted to jerk Xander in season seven, but making him the super flawless hero of the story? At this point I don't even bother to read anything with him listed as the main character anymore...
Comments from author:
I know. It's those stories and challenges that drive Musie to bash.

Review of chapter "Demon Hunter vs. Slayer" from Wormbait
Review:
Awesome.

I can't beleive i missed this series. If there's one thing I hate in Buffy fics it's uber Xander, which unfortunately means I dislike 99% of fics that have Xander in them.

It's gotten to the stage where I won't read any fic that has him as the main character, which is probably how I missed this one.

Well done and thanks for sharing.
Comments from author:
Gotta love the irony that I would write stories that I wouldn't read because of who the main character is. Granted, with a note like 'We Hate Xander' in the summary, I'd probably make an exception.

Review of chapter "Demon Hunter vs. Slayer" from (Past Donor)KieriToews
Review:
I liked it. It seems a very Xander-ish thing to think. I'm just surprised he would have the gall (read: idiocy) to say that aloud to two Slayers. *ponders a moment* Actually no, I'm really not! His brain -to-mouth filter has often proven to be severely lacking.
Comments from author:
Well, he doesn't think they'll hurt a human - even if he was literally asking for it by claiming to be better than them.

Review of chapter "Demon Hunter vs. Slayer" from RevDorothyL
Review:
I perfectly understand your motivation for writing a new entry in this surprisingly enjoyable series (I was tempted to throw my own laptop across the room in outrage when I read some idiot's SG1 crossover that had Xander explaining that he'd been unfairly run out of Sunnydale because the 'girls' were irrationally seeking revenge on him for having 'made a command decision' when he misrepresented Willow's message to Buffy at the end of season 2, with only Riley Finn sympathizing with him about how ungrateful those incompetent bitches Buffy and Willow were being -- all the while, completely avoiding the question of how Xander could make a 'command decision' when nobody had given him command of anything!).

And I love the idea of Kendra and Buffy being united in their disdain for Xander's claims to be somehow superior to the Chosen Ones simply by virtue of being male (and possibly white).
Comments from author:
Yup, you've got my motivation all wrapped up. You know, to me 'The Lie' isn't the soul spell deal, it's hiding that he remembered hiis hyena possession. That was cowardly of him since the girls weren't holding his actions against him.

Didn't think about the race issue when I wrote it; more just the guy/girl thing.
