Review of chapter "No One Mourns the Wicked" from Alerya
Review:
Thank You for this Maggie. She is a real person in this story, with real problems, cornered - and even a mouse becomes dangerous if drive it into a corner.
–°an easily imagine that the NID regularly use blackmail when recruiting. Not very nice from them. And not too far-sighted.
Comments from author:
I get so tired of stories where Maggie is one dimensional and pure evil. Stories like that miss the subtleties that marked S4. Maggie was a human being. With all the strengths and flaws that entails.

Review of chapter "No One Mourns the Wicked" from ShyBob
Review:
Nice, and very different from the usual flat, stereotypical mad scientist portrayals of Walsh (and Angleman). And now, back to "A Whole New World!"
Comments from author:
Thank you. I'm glad you liked this because I'm quite proud of my Maggie Walsh. I had a revelation one day watching the episode where she 'betrays' Buffy and realized that she knew Buffy would likely win. But she had to make it look good, both to turn Buffy against the Initiative and probably to her own superiors. Why she wanted to warn Buffy away from the Initiative is completely fabricated on my part. But the actions she takes are based on the actions she took in canon.

Review of chapter "No One Mourns the Wicked" from SaiyaSith
Review:
I like it. So often Walsh is portrayed as a power-hungry maniac who is obsessed with her work. I like that you gave her a human side, and real human reasons for why she did what she did. The Walsh as a professor gives us the hints that something deeper lurked within her, but so often that gets overlooked. Bravo for creativity on this one! Well done.
Comments from author:
Thank you. Unfortunately, creativity is not a gift of mine. Seeing things that others do not is. I rewatched Maggie's episodes and this was what I saw. (I also happened to be watching Glee at the time, so that might have come in too)

Thank you for all your kind words.

Well, that's different.
Not read a Maggie like that.
It's a first for me.

-[ Reading this one and Chapter 19 of the other fic has certainly shown me a Maggie Walsh that I've not read about before. It's still not the most unusual one I've read of though. That goes to the Maggie Walsh who was a Sub that was acting out, looking for punishment. That was a funny take on a Maggie Walsh.

"A Whole New Band" by "norgco". Story 3 of a series of stories that began with "Listening to the radio". ]-

The strange behavior
Of the cast does get explained.
A mind control spell.

-[ Yeah, the series of stories gets inundated by lesbians/bisexuals and promiscuity. Which is a common element for norgco's stories. However, in this series of stories, the rampant lesbianism in the Sunnydale population gets explained in Story 9, "Change of DJ". Maggie was still being "baaaad" for other reasons though. ^_^

Thank you for the rose and the haiku, Mr. Lurker.

I skimmed the New Band story. It was... interesting. And funny. She certainly was baaad.

Anyway, thank you for reading.

Review of chapter "No One Mourns the Wicked" from RedCalypso
Review:
I like the fact to redeem Dr. Walsh but I wish you had chosen something other than Down's syndrome. The DS people I have met are all simply outstanding and they don't need to be "cured".
Comments from author:
Sue Sylvester's sister had Down's Syndrome. And Sue and Maggie share a number of similarities. That was where the idea came from. And I agree that all DS people I have met have been awesome as well. However I disagree that they wouldn't choose to be "cured" if they had the option.

Thank you for reading and reviewing.

Review:
this is a truly intriguing premise... an sympathic explanation/back-story for Maggie Walsh's actions. Never even thought it was possible.
Congrats on breaking virgin ground here.
Comments from author:
Thank you. I love making people take a second look at things.

Review of chapter "No One Mourns the Wicked" from Annjeela
Review:
Interesting look at Maggie - the character in the show was very one-dimensional, no back story, so it does leave some room for adding depth

Good job.
Comments from author:
Thank you. I like my characters like I like my football teams. Deep. (Go GB Packers)

Review of chapter "No One Mourns the Wicked" from Tanydwr
Review:
Very interesting take on Maggie Walsh and, having read Chapter 19 and her thoughts on Buffy there, it certainly explains a lot. I think Maggie really did like Buffy in canon, but found she was too volatile with too much of an influence on Riley. Of course, here, Buffy's relationships with Parker and Riley will be created by the Initiative. Interesting take, and I look forward to more.

I noticed the two similarities here. Walsh's evil is the more pragmatic, driven sort, desperate to find something to help her sister, which drives her to do things she would rather not, but will do anyway.

Great work.
Comments from author:
Good observations. Though, I'm doubting there will be much if anything more posted on this one.

Review:
As for curing DS, given that both shows pretzel the natural laws of the universe, you can come up with whatever techno-babble you want, as long as it is good.

I like one commentor's suggestion of gene therapy. Just throw in some nanites to make us geeks happy : D.

Comments from author:
I don't know if she actually could have cured it, but she certainly thinks so. And working for the NID has prevented her from finding that cure.

Review:
I love it when an author takes a totally dispicable character and makes me see them in a new light.

Which, of course, makes you even more evil...

I mean that in a good way.

I find myself hoping that Walsh survives Adam.

Comments from author:
I love making people look at all characters in a new light if I can. Maggie was just an obvious target.
