Review of chapter "Chapter 33" from nemogbr
Review:
Great story. I did wonder whether Cordelia, Jonathan and the others of the Trio, Oz and perhaps the magical community would be recruited by Xander. They should be able to recruit more.
Comments from author:
Huge casts are hard for both authors and readers to keep track of. There will be some growth, but not everyone.

Review of chapter "Chapter 33" from MasterRahl
Review:
Buffy shouldn't really get mad at Xander, emergency treatment comes before modesty. I really enjoyed your fresh take on Ford and I'm looking foreword to where things go with Walsh.
Comments from author:
She shouldn't, but Xander isn't a doctor. Or she doesn't know/comprehend that he performed a doctor's duties for her. If she thought of him as a doctor, she wouldn't be upset. But she thinks of him as a friend boy, so her initial reaction is to prevent him from seeing her naughty bits.

Review of chapter "Episode 5: Return of the Jolinar" from Paradoxicality
Review:
violating conservation of energy as a side point is not nearly as bad as Mass Effect
Highschool Chemistry says "you need protons to have atoms" and "atomic number=number of protons in atom"
Eezo, the basis all tech in Mass Effect has an atomic number of Zero and somehow changes MASS(and they are VERY specific about it)
Comments from author:
I'm not terribly familiar with Mass Effect. Hopefully you think my explanations here are at least plausible.

Review of chapter "Chapter 33" from RedCalypso
Review:
It's been well over two years. Is this yet another wonderful story that will never be finished?
Comments from author:
I've said from the beginning that this one isn't dead and I mean it. WHEN it gets finished, I do not know. I'm still working on it occasionally but I'm not going to post anything more until it's finished - because we're already 3/4 the way to the end.

Review of chapter "Chapter 33" from mscecilyunderwood
Review:
I forgot to plead about doing something about ppairing buffy with angel. Im not sold on the idea when the series was still airing. And joss et al continuing it in the comics is really pushingit too far. I mean enough already, you can only take so much angst and drama about the star crossed lovers not to mention that by their very natures, theyre really contradictory. Just please pair her with anyone asidefrom angel. Ford would be okay here since hes already part of the scoobies and that would even things up bec even the adults have romantic lives.. look at joyce having a potential boyfriend in the police officer she met in that ride along occasion!
Comments from author:
I'm very sure that I was never planing on pairing anyone with any vampire (except other vampires). Not even sure if I was going to pair anyone with anyone else.

Review of chapter "Chapter 33" from mscecilyunderwood
Review:
Im thoroughly enjoying this story andi do hope you find inspiration enough to continue writing for this. Its quite good and the microhard, thats gold. Thanks so much for sharing your creativity with us!

Im hoping too that the explosion is a result of a self destruct mechanism from the robot and not something stupid that buffy did. Because if she shot the robot and caused the explosion, the subsequent conflict and pain and guilt for her and between her and the rest the scoobies would be quite sad. I get your desire to show the limelight to others. And that at this point remnants of a bratty immature buffy with not so good martial skills is quite understandable. Buffy is not booksmart like willow. Shes not even a third of upgraded xander at this point too. But buffy is an intelligent capable hero and fighter, very human in all her shortcomings and passion yes but a hero nonetheless.. so i really really hope you have plans to portray her character progressing maturing into a better person fighter and team player. Otherwise its such a disservice and waste.
Comments from author:
Thank you very much.

The explosion was not the result of a self-destruct mechanism. But there's no way anyone could have known that it would explode so there's no blame, and very little guilt.

Honestly, I'd have to look at my notes to figure out where I was going with Buffy in this story, but it was one of my first stories ever, so yeah, it went a little Uber-Xander. I don't know if there's enough room left in the story to bring back any semblance of balance.

Review of chapter "Ch. 10 - Road Trip" from Compston
Review:
I have read this story several times and it gets better with each read. I hope you update this story soon. It would be shame to not continue the story...
Comments from author:
It probably gets better and better because it wasn't very good when I first posted it. :-D

There is more of this, but I have no idea when I will be able to finish it. Not dead though.

Review of chapter "Chapter 20" from kalahari
Review:
What is it with Fanfiction and excessive cars?
You are not the only one pushing a luxury car onto one of the Scoobies, but come on.

If the car is really worth $30k to $35k, the thing to do is to have Giles sell the car, and buy a reasonable used car.
Reasonable means:
- no more than 2 liters or 122 CID engine displacement
- four cylinders
- preferably a station wagon
- 100 to 150 horsepower is quite enough
- less than 8l/100km or more than 30mpg
- less than 1500kg

I would consider a used Toyota Corolla a reasonable car. That way they have enough money to replace the car when they damage it.
Comments from author:
What is it with fanfiction and excessive... (guns, cars, computers, medieval weapons, plasma rifles, etc.)?

Meh. We all get on our kicks here and there. But they come and they go. For instance, I'm not sure I even mention a car in any other story of mine other than the fact that it goes from point A to point B.

Probably the main refrain you risk hearing in most of my stories is that spears are better than stakes. I think I mention that in most of my longer stories.

That being said, if I received a windfall car, even a luxury one, I would be unlikely to sell it unless it were a million dollar car. I would prefer to just drive the nicer car than go through the hassle of selling it and buying a cheaper one. Plus, you're not going to get the full value when you sell it.

Review of chapter "Chapter 19" from kalahari
Review:
No, you never ever combine the output of several electrical outlets into one device.
Yes, it is theoretically possible, but:
- Doing so creates electrical generated fires to burn down your home.
- Doing so makes you a candidate for the darwin award.
- I know that it has been done in Fanfiction, but it is really bad tech.
- It is only done in data centers for redundant powered devices, and only with very clean and documented power distribution systems.

The clean (and cheap) way to power any device which needs more power than your usual household power sockets provide is:
- on a simple US electrical household connection with split phase 120V/240V, put in a new 240V fuse behind the electric meter.
put in a new electric line (three wire) from the fuse box to the work room in the basement.
terminate the new line in a blue P+N+E, 6h IEC 60309 socket behind an extra two phase switch.
size all the new equipment according to the required amperage.
- on a US high leg delta (120V/240V/415V) electrical household connection, put in a new 240V/415V triple fuse behind the electric meter.
put in a new electric line (five wire) from the fuse box to the work room in the basement.
terminate the new line in a red 3P+N+E, 9h IEC 60309 socket behind an extra three phase switch.
size all the new equipment according to the required amperage.
- outside the US, you would have normal, symmetric three phase household power 230V/400V, and put in a new 230V/400V triple fuse behind the electric meter.
put in a new electric line (five wire) from the fuse box to the work room in the basement.
terminate the new line in a red 3P+N+E, 6h IEC 60309 socket behind an extra three phase switch.
size all the new equipment according to the required amperage.

Willow, being in charge of the household finances could have an eletrican installing the new line; with Xander and herself clearing the path for the new line, and helping to put it in, to keep the cost down.
That gives them ample and save power.
Willow's parents don't need to know about this, and if they ask, Willow can always say, she needed power in the basement for an experiment, wanted to do it save, and right the first time.

Any equipment Willow and Xander experiment on, can now be connected by an appropriate IEC 60309 connector, and can be completely disconnected in a save way.
Comments from author:
And if I were an electrician or studied wiring systems or anything like that, I probably would have wrote that. But I'm an author who knows enough that when you have enough stuff going that it shorts out the circuit breaker, you should unplug something before you trip it again. That's the extent of my electrical knowledge. Sadly, I know more than many people I work with.

I think someone else pointed out my error earlier as well. Basically, it's not important enough to the plot for me to change it. But thank you anyway.
