Review of chapter "Chapter Six." from Vorchan
Review:
I liked Miss Mackay rescuing Buffy when Miss Beal was about to and in the process of raping her! Miss Beal belongs behind bars herself for that kind of criminal conduct; she tried to rape somebody!
When Buffy asked Miss Beal what she's going to do, Beal could have responded "Hurt you.", and THAT would have been true!- she meant to hurt her, bad!
Beal is a horrible woman here!
Comments from author:
Well yes, but she gets hers in the end!

Cheers,
D.

Review of chapter "Chapter Twenty-Five." from DieselDriver
Review:
Glad Beal bit, er no, was bitten by, the dust (to be).

The past, the present and the future went into a bar...

It was tense.
Comments from author:
Ah-ha! Do I detect a double standard?

Not one word about Buffy's fate for having a vamp bite and kill her 'rapist', but Kennedy goes to 'Hell' for killing a mass murder!

I see, I get the picture ;-)

Cheers,
D.

Review of chapter "Chapter Twenty-Four." from DieselDriver
Review:
Kennedy is a bad bad girl! Serves Ethan right though. I suppose they will both meet in hell when she dies.
Comments from author:
It had occurred to me before writing this section that Ethan had probably killed a lot of people over the years, not directly but as a result of his spells...he had to die!

Cheers,
D.

Review of chapter "Chapter Fifteen." from DieselDriver
Review:
Nearly choked on the chips I was eating when I read that last line. Dreams of a guard that they'd stolen the prison. Can't see them hiding it in their bra... BTW, our version of chips, the flat kind. Except that mine have ridges.
Comments from author:
Ah, you mean 'Crisps', and yep those ones with the ridges can be sharp and dangerous!

Cheers,
D.

Review of chapter "Chapter Ten." from DieselDriver
Review:
"Big Scaly fish monsters" and no Sunnyhell syndrome to make them forget...
Comments from author:
Of course not! That would be no fun.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from DieselDriver
Review:
They'd better not confine their worrying about getting Buffy free. I'd be worrying about who's next.
Comments from author:
Not going to be a problem.

Cheers,
D.

PS: There's a couple of aspects of this story that I'm not happy about to this day, like making one of the characters a demon. I think it would have worked better 'Demon free'.

As usual, it seemed like a good idea at the time.

Review of chapter "Chapter Twenty-Five." from ShyBob
Review:
A little funny, a bit sad, but I love your development of Buffy during the series. I was hoping you wouldn't kill her off in an alcoholic train wreck of a finale; and you've turned her around in a unique fashion. Well done!
Comments from author:
Glad you liked. I'm surprised more slayers don't get arrested...young women walking the streets at night, you get the picture.

I've already started posting GUN2 and a friend of mine pointed out that I seem to have Buffy jumping through hoops again. I never intend to but it just seemed to happen. At least this season she's unlikely to be sent to prison.

Cheers,
D.

Review of chapter "Chapter Twenty-Five." from WhippingDawn
Review:
I've gone through the whole series in only a few days, and I am SO hoping there will be a Season 9!

I love what you did with S8. Here are a few observations.

1. Some of the titles (i.e. "The Vampire Carrot From Another World!") were so strange I was afraid to read something too much on the funny side. I don't like funny stories. But I like good stories with some humor in it, and you do that well.

2. I had tried to read "Doing Time" before, but had stopped because I didn't understand it. But after reading the stories coming before, it was one of the best I read! Kudos!

3. I love Dawn/Faith. As one of your characters says, those two are REALLY in love. I'm very happy they didn't break the spell, and I hope to see more of them.

4. The Alcoholic Buffy subplot was a masterpiece! And using Kennedy to come to her help was a wonderful idea. Their collaboration in the "Brick" episode was very well done too. I like that those two, although they have found respect for one another, still don't like each other. And Kennedy seems to be the new Faith! I love it!

5. Buffy is a lesbian. Hopefully she will be luckier than she was with guys. After all, Joss played with the concept with Satsu. I bet there are new plots to be derived from that.

I never give a 10 because there's always room for amelioration. But you're the first I give a 9, and as soon as I find how to make a recommendation I will.

Thanks for a good reading. Fortunately there are so many more... :)
Comments from author:
Thank-you very much for your kind words-and yes there is a 'series 9'.

I've written two longish fics plus a couple of short ones so far and I'm planning on focusing more on Faith/Dawn this time.

I've got several Ideas for new stories, now all I have to do is find the time and the inclination to write them!

Cheers,
D.

Review of chapter "Chapter Twenty-Five." from (Current Donor)Listener
Review:
I really enjoyed this series. It was quite clever and full of the humor you usually bring to the table. Plus, moving the slayers to England gave you a good excuse to have them start speaking your language.

I detected a bit of suspicion toward Giles in this installment; I really was afraid he'd done something bad. (Mostly it was the comment about how his office kept getting posh-er.)
Comments from author:
Thank-you.

This all started because someone on the forums said the Hellmouth had to be in the US Cleveland after I'd suggested it might be the Cleveland in England. After all Giles is English...

Okay Giles' office, I think your the only person how made the connection.

Now I've writen a few stories set after 'Doing Time' but I'm not posting them for a while, so I'll explain.

Giles had a rather good win on the National Lotery, nothing sinister or evil. He just chose the right numbers...of course he might have used magic to see into the future...

Cheers,
D.

And yes it was nice to call a Lift a Lift and not an Elevator!

Review of chapter "Chapter Twenty-Five." from maxthehobbit
Review:
I think Kennedy did the right thing, getting rid of Ethan Rayne, even if she may have done it for the wrong reasons. Looks like she is a little warped by being in a mafia family.

Buffy did the right thing, Beal needed to be eliminated, I just think Buffy should have used a stick on her before the vamp got her.

I read a story about Faith's time in prison, it was a good story, but you put a lot more details in your story, made it more interesting.

I'm tracking your stories so I'll see it when you write season 2 of this series.
Thanks again for another entertaining story.
Comments from author:
Thanks.

I'm critical of my own work so I can see some faults in this story, mostly to do with plotholes, but I'd had the basic Idea for some time before writing this.

I may have gone over the top with the whole 'prison changes you' but on the other hand, Buffy has now definitely grown-up now so might well have a harder edge to her. Also killing people has never bothered Buffy in the past.

Young Kennedy? Well I think that with the background I've given her 'family' and its protection is one of the highest things on her agenda. Imagine what she'd do if someone came after Willow!

Season two. I've written about four stories of various lengths but it'll be awhile yet before any are posted. I'm still trying to think how I'm going to finish the season and series off.

Cheers for all the reviews,
D.

Review of chapter "Chapter Twenty-Five." from BrownFinderth
Review:
Quite an interesting series of interlocking stories!!
Comments from author:
Thank-you. The plot line of this last story could have been a little better thought out. You might be interested in knowing that I've started to write a 'Season 2' for the Grim up North series. Be a while before any stories are posted.

Cheers,
D.

Review of chapter "Chapter Twenty-Five." from Hecatonchires
Review:
I really enjoyed this, and not just because I used to watch Porridge and the Two Ronnies when I was a kid. I like the background of the world you're making, and the occasional twist you threw at us for character actions were great.
Comments from author:
Thanks a lot.

Review of chapter "Chapter Twenty-Five." from Eureka
Review:
So it's over? No Rhyne floating up or anything else? :(
At least Beal got hers!
Comments from author:
Well you never know, people have a distressing habit of finding bodies when they're walking their dogs on the moors. I think if Kennie had had more time to plan she'd have been more careful.

Cheers,
Dave.
