Review of chapter "The Beginning" from WebSpyder
Review:
First, let me say that with a single exception I very much enjoyed the story and your writing style. That said, your good work was almost completely undone by your drastic mischaracterization of Janeway. I realize you don't like the character and honestly I'm not her biggest fan either but the person you wrote bore little to no resemblance to the character from the show at all. Considering how well you wrote the other characters I found this surprising but it really ruined the overall experience of the story for me.

Review of chapter "The Beginning" from JonnWolfe
Review:
I loved this. Somewhat sexy, and still has the cajones to give Janeway a swift kick in her prideful arse. Love how you had them go back in time so they got home. Awesome.

Review of chapter "The Beginning" from (Recent Donor)wolframhart
Review:
Your story popped up on the homepage as someone's recommendation and I am glad I clicked on it. Really enjoyed the story. I am about to see if you have written any other stories and give them a try. Keep writing, you are good at this.
Comments from author:
Hello there! Thank you for your kind words. I confess to a bit of shame that this was the first story of mine that you have read, as I view it personally as one of my lesser works. It started out with me intending to write an actual story, but I feel it ended up with too much Janeway-bashing and seemed to be more of a vent for some of my gripes with the show than it should have been. Not that I don't believe everything that I wrote, because I do, but I didn't live up to my own standards with this particular story, I feel.

I do hope you find other works of mine to be worth reading. Most are still works in progress, and I have been stuck with writer's block for quite a while, unfortunately. I do intend to finish all of my stories at some point or another, but I could not give you a date, or even an estimate.

Thank you again for your kind feedback, and I hope you continue to enjoy my work.

Review of chapter "The Beginning" from Rune
Review:
Great if unexpected!

First time or dimension travel is needed to get any Star Trek and Buffy characters together. Unless you dress Xander as a Vulcan on Halloween.

Now I never watched the Voyager shows. Star Trek, ST the Next Generation, the movies, and a handful of DS9 shows were it for me. So I have no idea if the Captain was IC or OOC. But its a good story.

And a sequel would be nice, maybe the dimension this Willow is from could be one where Xander is a Jedi? Even more fun if you cross it with the fiic that has Xander dressing as Revan one Halloween. Knights of the Hellmouth is the name. Xander becomes Rachel and the Revan template used was her as a Sith. The story Jedi Harris or Terran Jedi is also good and even crosses with Stargate too. Seven would be fascinated by that wormhole. Sam would love her too. Hey there is an Idea a Willow/Seven/Sam triangle!

Thanks for the story.
Comments from author:
I'm glad you liked the story. If I do write a sequel, it will probably not take place in anyone else's fanfic universe. I have enough difficulty keeping things straight just with my own material. Thanks for the review! :-)

Review of chapter "Letting Loose" from (Current Donor)Listener
Review:
I'm giving you ten stars on this chapter for being the only person other than me (that I know of) for publicly writing about what Janeway did to Seven, and just how wrong it was. When I was a college student watching Voyager, I thought it was great, but in a recent rewatch of the series, "The Gift" left a very bad taste in my mouth. Glad I'm not the only one.

Now, back to the story.

(edited because I didn't know it was a 1-10 scale; my phone only showed five options... sorry about that...)
Comments from author:
Hey there. While I greatly appreciate the sentiment, unless something has changed since I last visited the site, the grading is on a ten point scale. Dare I ask where the story fell short for you?

EDIT: Ah. See your edit. No worries, friend. I'm just glad you liked the story. Thank you for your review. Wishing you all the best. ^_^

Review of chapter "The Beginning" from Mordare
Review:
Great story. I sequel would be great. I just keep thinking Q would not like what Willow did to Kathy since he likes her. Might be interesting if he showed up in a sequel.
Comments from author:
Oh, I don't count Q's appearances on Voyager. He should have stayed with Picard. He had better tastes in TNG. ~_^

Review of chapter "The Beginning" from EasterCat
Review:
Although I liked Janeway, you found a good balance for dealing with issues you had with her.
The story of Willow and Seven was very interesting. If you write a sequel, I look forward to reading it.
Comments from author:
Thank you so much! I was very nervous about being too heavy-handed with Janeway, but if you think I handled her somewhat fairly, then that makes me very happy.

Thanks again for your review. Wishing you and yours all the best! ^_^

Review of chapter "The Beginning" from PATM
Review:
Yes please, a next installment would be very nice indeed. A touch base with Voyager just to see how they fare but the main story would connect with her friends back in Sunnydale.
Comments from author:
Thanks! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. I'll see how my muse is feeling in a little bit. ^_^

Review of chapter "Fallout" from (Current Donor)Wispr
Review:
Have to say the scene with Janeway accusing Willow of torturing Seven seem a bit off. If there were reports of screams that made it seem Seven was being hurt why didn't Janeway or the security team try to rescue her or even have the Doctor check Seven out?

Now I don't blame Janeway for being paranoid about having her memories messed with, to me that's a bloody chilling prospect. I did like how you had Janeway chill, especially when talking to Seven after Willow left. You were able to capture the more maternal feelings Janeway feels for Seven.

The whole scene in the Doctor's office was really well written, Love how you had them bantering and what happen to Willow when she got a bit upset. Also liked their talk about taking things to fast when it came to Seven. I can imagine the last thing Willow would want to do is pull a "Kennedy" and take advantage of someone who is emotionally vulnerable.

Comments from author:
Heh. I must confess, the 'fears of torture' were mainly to set up her jaw dropping a few feet when she realizes that, "Oh. It was THAT kind of screaming. That's just... Oh." So, yeah. That was my intent there, but I can see how it might have felt a bit off.

Thank you for your comments about Janeway. I may not like her character, but I did try to make her human. And the Doctor is one of my favorite characters on the show, so I'm glad you feel that I did him justice.

Thanks for your review. I hope you like the rest of the story. ^_^

Review of chapter "Letting Loose" from (Current Donor)Wispr
Review:
Glad to see Willow is feeling remorse over both her losing control and what she did to Tom. How you wrote Torres feelings and reaction was spot on for her.

Glad to read in your AN's that not gonna bash Janeway, was beginning to wonder a bit there especially in regards to how she handled Species 8472, I don't think there was any "good" way to handle that situation. Janeway wasn't perfect by a long shot, but then that made her more human in my mind... ;)

Willow's insight into Seven's predicament and how Seven feels like she stuck in way between Borg and being human makes sense with who and what Willow had worked with in the past. Slayer empowered with demonic essence, making them in a sense not quite human, Witches and soul and unsoul vampires. All of this gives her a unique view on things, especially in regards to Seven.

Comments from author:
Hey there. Thanks again for your review. I try to make Janeway out to be someone who does bad things but doesn't realize it most of the time. But that's just my take on the character. She means well, but doesn't know what's best.

Review of chapter "The Beginning" from (Recent Donor)DaveTurner
Review:
Greatly enjoyed your story which I came to by accident...then read through in one sitting!

I totally agree with you, Janeway was a poor Captain and to be honest a bad officer who betrayed the things that Starfleet was supposed to hold dear. Like Seven in your story I think Willow let her off too easily.

The Voyager series was badly written, so really we should blame the writers not Janeway, and actually started to turn me away from all things Star Trek; the least said about 'Enterprise' the better.

I hope you do write a sequel, I'd like to see how Willow and Seven go now they're on Earth.

All the best,
DaveT.
Comments from author:
Hey there! Thank you for your kind words. I couldn't agree with you more about Voyager being poorly written. To her credit, Kate Mulgrew is a fine actress, even if her character was reprehensible.

I'm glad you enjoyed the story. Thank you again for your review. ^_^

Review of chapter "The Beginning" from grd
Review:
very nicely done. Hoping for a last peek at what's happened on Voyager though.
Comments from author:
Thank you, but I don't think we're going to get another look at Voyager. I might do a short spin-off, but that's a bit unlikely, to be honest.
