Review of chapter "Barkeep Willy, Love Guru" from (Past Donor)KieriToews
Review:
...well poop. It would seem that I am quite hooked on this story of yours (not the first, unlikely to be the last, either).

Anyway, I loved what I read so far, and I find myself rooting for Balthazar. And if that actor is the one who played him on Supernatural, then all I can say is: yummy. Also, no wonder there are people who dig this pairing. Thank you. And two thumbs up, yo!
Comments from author:
Well thank you for reading! Such comments always make a writer most pleased :)
*smacks my own hand* Although I understand the pain of a story not being updated in a while...please know this one is still in my thoughts...I just can't get into spn at the moment (maybe it's because I'm disappointed with the current season, le sigh.)

Yes, Sebastian Roche (the actor) is deliciously yummy and delightfully naughty (https://twitter.com/#!/sebroche). I really think he and Buffy would be delightful together ;D

Review of chapter "Barkeep Willy, Love Guru" from clockworkorange
Review:
(and it didn’t help that he was influencing Balthazar’s persona with his twisted humor more than he would have thought) - Is the 'he' that Balthazar's referring to his 'former rock star' vessel or a totally different 'he'? Also, things could get (awesomely) awkward if someone recognizes his vessel because it belongs to a former rockstar.

Review of chapter "1) Faked Death -Check 2) Secret Hiding Plan- Next" from clockworkorange
Review:
I just thought of something:

With Raphael and the angels that make up the PTB watching over Sunnydale will Balthazar end up drawing their attention by his close proximity to the Slayer? (Curious about how they'd deal with an angel leaving Heaven and getting too close to the Slayer without permission/orders.)

And does Buffy's mysterious (since Willow didn't raise her) resurrection somehow tie into the main S6 plot of SPN?

Review of chapter "Barkeep Willy, Love Guru" from Taisy
Review:
Willy the Love Guru is a scary, scary thought. Hopefully, the insertion of Balthazar will derail most of the badness that was season six- blame, depressions, addictions, etc.

As to clues to what Bal has done; I thought perhaps he did some sort of blendy thing with Gabe, much like Gabe did with Loki. It would give Bal a touch of pagan and Gabe a touch of grace. Then I thought that didn't make any sense because Gabe had to take over Loki's body to do it. Then I realized that Bal couldn't have blended essences or grace with any pagan deity if he had to take over the body to do it because he was still in the rock star, so ... Yeah, I got nothing.

Thanks for the funny, thought provoking read.

Review of chapter "Barkeep Willy, Love Guru" from Dmitri
Review:
Nice chapter. It's about time that Buffy got herself a new potential boyfriend that doesn't lack a pulse in the first place, and the bit about Gabriel asking Willy for advice on girls was funny. Thanks for the update!

Review of chapter "Barkeep Willy, Love Guru" from clockworkorange
Review:
Balthazar smote Willy's bar and then fished for advice on courting Buffy? LOL. I bet Willy's missing his demonic customers pretty badly right now. Angels trump demons in the scary department IMO. Balthazar must be pretty darn desperate if he's asking WILLY of all people for dating advice. Love that he realized at the end that he knows Buffy and what she likes and he should use that to his advantage (and hopefully to never ask Willy the Snitch for advice of any kind ever again?).

Angry!Buffy is loads better than Depressed!Buffy, so yay for that!

...Who WAS responsible for Buffy getting torn out of Heaven: one of the other angels, a group of them, or God himself? And for what purpose?

Review of chapter "Not So Much a Diaper-y Cupid-y Angel" from AnUnknownCylon
Review:
This story is so frakking awesome! Balthazar is one of my favorite SPN characters, but I haven't seen that much fanfiction with him as a main character (aside from Balthazar/Castiel fic) and the world needs more Balthazar fic.

I can't wait to see what the Scoobies (plus Spike) will make of him. Spike is going to haaaate him and I bet any interaction they'll have in the future will be hilarious.

I hope he'll be able to change Buffy's poor impression of him relatively soon. Balthazar/Buffy has a lot of potential.
Comments from author:
Yayyyy, thank you! ;)

I LOVE Bal in a ridiculous way and think it's a crime not to have more of him (or Gabriel or Crowley, when it comes to spn fics).

Oh yes, Spike and Bal will be the BEST of friends...NOT! ;)

Thanks!

Review of chapter "Not So Much a Diaper-y Cupid-y Angel" from lunalurker
Review:
Wow, Balthazar is a total and complete jerk in this chapter. Just about the worst approach possible, if he wanted to get close to Buffy. Far too much acting like a smug, arrogant Big Bad.
Comments from author:
His Achilles Heel is his arrogance, for sure. He's got a LOT of sucking up to do...

thanks for reading!

Review of chapter "Not So Much a Diaper-y Cupid-y Angel" from clockworkorange
Review:
Ouch. Poor Balthazar's really got his work cut out for him on the Buffy front. I can totally understand why she reacted the way she did though. And yeah the lingerie thing wouldn't him any points in my book either.
Comments from author:
It wouldn't win points with me either. Poor Balthazar has a pretty bad sense of humor...

Review of chapter "Come On Baby, Light My Fire" from MysticOracle
Review:
You know, for some reason, I thought that "Life Serial" happened while Buffy was already having sex with Spike. I had this horrible vision of Balthazar walking in on Buffy mid-tryst. Instead, I get Buffy/Balthazar smoochies and Spike being shoved into a closet (I mean, Spike's great, but that relationship was not healthy).

I wonder how the Scoobs will react to an angel in their midst. On one hand, I'm guessing that they will feel less guilty if Balthazar reveals that Raphael is the reason Buffy was pulled from Heaven (Willow may suffer from some wounded pride). On the other, I doubt they'd take too kindly to Buffy falling for a mysterious stranger who claims to be an angel. And Spike's reaction to another cocky blond Brit should be interesting.
Comments from author:
*shudders at the thought of Bal walking in on slayer-vampire sex* That would completely wound him - and probably get his 'Smiting Action' switch flipped.

Yeah, I love Spike but that relationship was not healthy. Spike and Balthazar are due for some amusing (but not for them!) convos :)

One thing -- Balthazar isn't quite sure *who* pulled Buffy from Heaven but his only lead is Raphael because it does take some serious mojo. ;)

Thanks for reading!

Review of chapter "Come On Baby, Light My Fire" from Dmitri
Review:
Nice update. Balthazar can be smooth when he wants to be, doesn't he? And Dawn is kidnapped? What a surprise! (Not). I liked this chapter a lot. Thanks, Luna.
Comments from author:
Oh yeah. Balthazar can be a smoothy. Of course, in the show he's super smooth, but then again he had been fake-dead at that point for over a year. In this fic, Bal may not always be that smooth ;)

Thank you for reading. And a big thanks for the rec! :D
