Review of chapter "Chapter 6" from DarthTenebrus
Well done overall. I like the idea of a cynical Buffy caring less and less as time progresses and the evils of humanity post-Judgment Day (I'm a big fan of the Terminator franchise) are revealed, to the point where she considers that in the Time Before she would have been condemned for her actions and most likely had a Council Wetworks team sent to terminate her. Her sorrow for the old Scooby Gang, now lost to the nuclear fires, is outweighed by her rage against the true monsters of her new reality -- humanity. I find myself enjoying the irony that the now-immortal Slayer has found sanctuary among those that in the Time Before, or Earth-That-Was for you Firefly fans, she would have happily hunted to extinction.

How much more so for the "ghouls" that the Slayer now finds a home among her former prey? And how disturbing is it that the remnant of humanity still does not know of the Slayer and her eternal war against the Darkness?

It reminds me of a tale that I had started writing a little over a year ago, one of my first on this site that crosses with L. Ron Hubbard's famous opus "Battlefield Earth". The Slayer finds herself rather short on vampires and demons to hunt as her new prey is the Psychlos that have invaded and taken over the planet, having wiped out a vast majority of humankind with the breath-gas that they themselves breathe and subduing the rest with ridiculous ease. In the movie Terl spoke to Johnny Goodboy Tyler about the most advanced war machines humanity had ever produced only putting up a measly nine-minute fight before they were exterminated. And yet they have never faced the Slayer...the story is called "Buffy in the Year 3000", and I only have one chapter thus far, but if anyone wants to take it up for themselves and continue the story they have my express permission, and my blessing, to do so, so long as the creators of these respective works receive their due and proper credit.

Review of chapter "Chapter 5" from Gideon
Well that does simplify tracking the guy down doesn't it? I hope he has run out of explosives by the time Buffy catches up with him!

Review of chapter "Chapter 5" from CPTSkip
I am really enjoying your story. I am very amused by "the kid from 101" being the Big Bad. I've wanted to play Fallout as a psycho-killer, but I just never had the time. Well, I also like being a hero. But since Buffy is Our Hero, I guess she can kick the Vaulter's ass when she finally finds him. Lol! I look forward to reading more of your story, soon I hope.

Review of chapter "Chapter 4" from Gideon
Great start on the first few chapters.This is a very rich world that you can use as Buffy travels through it. I like the fact that we can see some of the old Buffy shining through the changes that time has forced upon her.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from Taryn
How interesting. Too bad Vaultie wasn't a do-gooder. Still. Interesting.... I'm looking farward to the next chapter.

Review of chapter "Chapter 2" from CPTSkip
I am still enjoying your story and looking forward to seeing the New Scooby Gang kick some Evil Butts, of which there are so many roaming the Wasteland. The only question I have, so far, is about "Willow". Is she the Original Witch Willow turned to a Ghoul or just a Ghoul that has some trace of red hair sharing the name "Willow" with the Original Scooby Willow?

Review of chapter "Chapter 2" from cjsplace
I found your story very interesting and look forward to reading more. There is one point of inconsistency though. The first chapter was written with Buffy as the last of the Scoobies left, and then suddenly toward the end of chapter 2 you have Willow there. I'm rather confused about this.

feels like a two chapter prologue, but I am still looking forward to the rest of it :)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from CPTSkip
Interesting start. I love Fallout and look forward to seeing Immortal Buffy kick some evil butts in the Wasteland. I know you stated Buffy is the Last Slayer, but I do hope she runs across Faith somewhere sometime.

This could have great potential, looking forward to seeing where you take it.
