Review of chapter "Faith Harris P1" from TheaZara
Review:
I love this take on the Z war. The tone and style could be missing chapters from the book easily and your character voices hold true (particularly Faith) I hope to see more of this.

Review of chapter "Faith Harris P1" from okonic
Review:
As an admittedly huge fan of World War Z, I was quick to start reading this story and I'm glad I did. You are keeping just the right kind of tone to match the original story. Great Job can't wait for more.
Comments from author:
Since I saw the original 1968 Night of the Living Dead back in the eighties, I've been a huge zombie fan. Since I read the book, I wanted to do something like this, but only recently did I have the time to make it happen.

Glad you've enjoyed it so far, and thank you for the review.

Review of chapter "Faith Harris P1" from eriktheviking
Review:
A cracking good look at the choices people are forced into. Nothing good just degrees of bad.
Comments from author:
I've enjoyed taking the slay gang post S7 out of their comfort zone of the Council. Splitting them up, and forcing them to work as individuals or in small groups makes a big difference.

I also like that there isn't always a good choice in a zombie apocalypse. These characters were made for this crossover, and it shows. Thank you for the review.

Review of chapter "Faith Harris P1" from OlBear
Review:
Great story and I like your characters, especially Faith as she describes her trip across the country. Looking forward to the next update.
Comments from author:
I like having a good story to use characters I normally wouldn't. I've barely used Willow before, and my Kennedy was a total bitch in the other story I had them in. This Faith, I liked having an older, more sedate version.

The next chapter is a work in progress, how much free time I have really dictates when it will be done. Hopefully though, it's sooner rather then later. Thank you for the review.

Review of chapter "Faith Harris P1" from AbscondingCascade
Review:
This just keeps getting better and better, in thanks a bit of music from a classic for a classic - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ST2H8FWDvEA
Comments from author:
That is one of the best soundtrack songs ever, right up there with the Aliens drop ship drum beat. Nice choice.

With every interview, things seem to improve, so I'm hoping they just get better. Thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Faith Harris P1" from desertcoyote
Review:
I've a few few Z War stories. Most were mediocre at best, this story is anything but. You've captured my attention with this story. I'm really interested in reading the 2nd half of Faith's interview and Xander's. See what the "heart" did to survive.
Comments from author:
If you haven't read it yet, scribbler's 'The Way Is Shut', on this site is an excellent story. It's a non-Buffy crossover, but it's still done extremely well.

The second part of Faith's interview is in progress, but I don't know when it'll be finished. The reason it works so well, is that I research everything. Every detail I can squeeze out of the book, I use within reason.

I'm glad you've enjoyed it so far, and I hope that you find the rest just as good. Thank you for the review.

Review of chapter "Kennedy Fitzgerald" from SlowMercury
Review:
I liked your Kennedy--abrasive and occasionally wildly inappropriate, but still has her heart in the right place and she always seems to stand up for what she believes in. Can't wait to see more of this!
Comments from author:
I've never really used the character in length with any of my stories, so I wasn't sure how she'd turn out as I wrote this. I'm really happy with how she turned out though, and the reviews seem to reflect that as well.

Thank you for the review.

Review of chapter "Kennedy Fitzgerald" from AbscondingCascade
Review:
Nice chapter love how you potrayed Kennedy, albiet my urge to strangle Kennedy is still as strong as ever. But anyway great chapter. Now in thanks for this chapter I have a link to some music I think is suited to be played in the aftermath of an attempted Zombie apocalypse - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D25tRM6auPQ
Comments from author:
She isn't really my favorite character either. I always preferred Vi myself. With that said, after I made the statement in Willow's interview that she had her own TV show I just got a burst of inspiration from it.

There are more then a few I don't really like, but they'll still get a shot. When is the question, I just wait to see where the muse decides to wander.

Good choice in music as well, I was playing that just before I came on and checked the story stats. Thanks for the tunes and the review.

Review of chapter "Kennedy Fitzgerald" from CPTSkip
Review:
I am frakking loving your series! I really like your Kennedy. I think she usually gets a hard time from many BtVS fans but I liked her even on the show. The line about Andrew calling her the Whore of Babylon cracked me up. This is a wonderful series and I look forward to more updates with great anticipation.

The point about actors, after the Z Wars, not wanting to play Zeds was a very nice, realistic, touch.
Comments from author:
I think she turned out pretty well, considering the one other time I've used her in a story, she was a complete bitch. Since she didn't have much room for character development, I think she is very open to interpretation.

Yes, she's a bitch, but not without good reason. Writing her, I felt a lot of people could identify with how she felt about various subjects. Judging by the reviews so far, it worked.

I compared that to actors post-WW2 who didn't want to play nazis in film, it was an issue for quite awhile in Hollywood. Most of the people that are playing zombies post-war, are doing so simply because they need a paycheck.

Thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Kennedy Fitzgerald" from EvilLuke
Review:
I really liked the Willow interview, but this Kennedy interview is amazing!

Keep up the good work, I like the world you're building here.
Comments from author:
Some interviews are going to be wildly different. I just couldn't see Willow, at that place in time, ripping into people like that. Kennedy on the other hand, in her situation, it just fit.

I'm glad you've liked it, and the world itself is actually fun to write. Coming up with ideas and scenarios for each character, and trying to make them fit in the WWZ world keeps things interesting for me.

Thank you for the review.

Review of chapter "Kennedy Fitzgerald" from MarcusRowland
Review:
Really like what you're doing with this story - will there be an interview with Riley Finn and the other Initiative survivors? With Illyria?
Comments from author:
Riley will definitely get an interview, I really want to show the military perspective in here. When that chapter will come about, I have no idea. These stories are in no particular order.

Illyria is a tough one. Since Cordelia is still alive, that really messes up the Angel timeline. But that would definitely be an interesting interview, I'll have to give it some thought.

Thank you for the review.

Review of chapter "Kennedy Fitzgerald" from eriktheviking
Review:
A great series of viewpoints from the apocalypse.
Comments from author:
I've read the book several times over the years, and always liked the concept. Hopefully, the ideas keep coming, these are fun to write...

Thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Kennedy Fitzgerald" from (Current Donor)JanessaRavenwood
Review:
Another fantastic chapter. Major points for no reflexive OOC Kennedy bashing - like nearly every other author here. Everyone has their side of the story...
Comments from author:
I really wanted to make sure that these interviews were from the person's viewpoint, whether I agreed with it or not. That will be the same with all future interviews as well. If a character is bashed by another, I will always make sure to state their reasons for doing so, right or wrong.

Thank you for the review.

Review of chapter "Willow Rosenberg" from FrolickingNomad
Review:
This is fascinating. I've always been a fan of a good post-cataclysm story, and this is definitely in that category. I'm going to have to get World War Z from the library now.
Comments from author:
Glad you liked it, and I do have a suggestion... If you're planning on picking it up, I also suggest Max's other book, the Zombie Survival Guide. It's a good read, and the back section is like a small prequel to World War Z.

Thank you for the review.
