Five Jobs Dawn Summers Didn’t Get, and One She Did

StoryReviewsStatisticsRelated StoriesTracking
Review of chapter "Chapter One" from TroyGuffey
Review:
#4: Giles is SO going to get his ass kicked. Then whine him into catatonia. And then she'll get NASTY.

Are those real requirements for UN Translators? Frigging FRENCH? (Anyway Dawn could probably learn EVERY SINGLE ONE of those languages in a cinematically short time.)
Comments from author:
Yes, they're real. It's not just knowing the languages - you have to have lived in countries that use them. Also, there are security requirements that are even more stringent than for NCIS, so her weird history and association with known criminals would be just as problematic as for that job.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)deiticlast
Review:
Frigging hilarious! Are you going to do any more?
Comments from author:
I don't think so - this one was mainly metafiction, pointing out some of the problems with some aspects of other stories, I don't want to labour the point.

The idea of 'gender reassignment sorcery' made me laugh out loud.

Seems logical to me...

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from AnnaDruvez
Review:
I love it! The Key becomes a battery. Classic "Dawn gets into something she shouldn't."
Comments from author:
Yup. Blame Don Sample, he did it first!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from mendenbar
Review:
1-5 were fun and interesting but 6 was the icing on the cake and worth the whole trip by itself.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Xovervore
Review:
Xander's 'demon magnetism' strikes again!! I liked all the letters, and would love to see more.
Comments from author:
I think it would start to get stale if I did more.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Amai
Review:
It takes a good reason for me to read a Dawn centered fic. Your summery (and to be fair, the story length) seemed like good reasons. I was glad not to regret it. In part, because there really wasn't too much Dawn for my tastes, and it part because this trope is something that a lot of good writers (and some other writers like myself) fall into because of how easy it is to start a story with this. I loved the way you gently poked fun at the flaw and turned out an interesting little ficlit.
Comments from author:
Thanks - I'm occasionally involved in recruiting technical staff, the amount of red tape in something like that is bad enough - you can imagine how hard it would be for any of the jobs I listed.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Waverly
Review:
Heh, that was fantastic. It really does bother me when jobs are handed to the Scoobies even though they have little to no qualifications, thanks for writing this!
Also Dawn getting rejected from the council was priceless. XD
Comments from author:
Well... maybe me being just a little mean

You need to add a Dawn/Strunk/White story.
