Review of chapter "Part Three" from (Current Donor)Sithspit
Review:
This has got to be one of the most BIZARRE stories I've read in...well, forever.

That being said, I LIKE IT. It was funny, sexy, and entertaining. Different AND good. A+!
Comments from author:
LOL. Thanks. It was bizarre to write, but fun. And I used to write Buffy/Willow a long time ago, and this gave me an excuse to do a new spin on it. I figured, if Joss can do Centaur!Dawn, MountainLion!Buffy is just as valid. ;-)

Awesome ending. It's good to see that Buffy decided to let Willow all the way into her life.

Review of chapter "Part Two" from (Current Donor)Wispr
Review:
Amazing, just bloody amazing. Great job in how you worked up to the two of them admitting their feelings. Also like how you didn't lessen the "Love" that Willow still feels for both Tara and Aluwyn and the importance those two played in Willow's life. Very nice touch in how you incorporated Aluwyn helping Willow to come to terms in both who she is and who she loved from the first go. And good work in how you showed the opposite of the "Love" Tara and Aluwyn brought into Willow's life with Wilow admitting to the lovelessness that Kennedy had introduced into her life.

The friendly bantering, between Willow and Buffy just had me all a-smiles and really harkened back to the good old days... wonderful writing there!

Something else I liked about this story is how they both admitted to making mistakes that led to things going the way they did. So often I've seen it written either it's one persons fault or one big mistake that made everything go down the drain. Whereas with your story, and more realistically in my mind, it was a bunch of little things that simply piled up over time.

You really caught the chemistry between the two and love how you did their not so innocent bantering also! And plus the ending was bloody hot!

Can't wait for more!

Thanks. :-D Sorry, I'm horrible at responding to feedback if I don't remember to do it right away. I'm especially happy you found it hot at the end. I tend to avoid adult stuff, but the story wouldn't let me this time.

Review:
Fantastic chapter, great work in how you wrote Willow and Buffy interacting, especially like seeing the old inquisitive Willow making an appearance. Again how you write Buffy-speak for both Willow and Buffy really fleshes out their characters wonderfully.

Love how you wrote the sexual tension between those two and the petting bit was very Willowy!

Forgot to add I really like how you describe Buffy transforming, detailed and vivid without being overly cumbersome. Makes for an easing and enjoyable read.

Review of chapter "Prologue" from (Current Donor)Wispr
Review:
Oh bloody vivid and interesting first chapter. I love the back story and the mythology you invented for just what the Slayer is. Also great work in both writings Buffy's personality and the uniqueness of Buffy-speach.

Review:
Great update. I wonder if Xander or Dawn had a pool going as to when Buffy and Willow would get together. I can't wait to see what your next tail... whoops, tale has in store for Buffy and Willow.

Review of chapter "Part Two" from JasonBarnett
Review:
I really feel that having Willow have legitimate feelings for Aluwyn is a mistake and something easily retconed in the comic. I mean to me it's like Buffy having feelings for Angelus.
Comments from author:
Well, I'm going by what I saw in Season 8. I liked the comics, I liked the story (I just wish we'd seen Angel's becoming Twilight in depth) and I always try to base things as much as I can in canon. And by the end of it, it seemed pretty clear to me that she did and I tried to delve a little bit into why in the story.

Seemed that even Aluwyn had legitimate feelings for Willow, too. Not that she'd planned it, I'm sure, but at the end of Willow's prequel one-shot, when Willow basically says, "We're going to be on an even playing field here, I know who you are," Aluwyn seemed legitimately thrown, and I think you can tell by their interactions later that her time with Willow was different as a result. And we never saw her ask Willow to do any evil or start a cult in her name, or anything like that.

I also don't think it's anywhere near the same thing as Buffy having feelings for Angelus. At all. Your take is your take, though. If anything, I think it probably started like Buffy and Spike. Sex (minus the violence). And in exchange, Willow got knowledge, got to learn. Then, like Buffy and Spike, it became more.

For the purposes of the story, they loved each other. If Joss comes states otherwise in Season 9, well, this story's already AU anyway. Buffy's a cat. ;-)

Love the start of this, and I can't wait to see where you are taking this. Poor Willow. At least Xander isn't around to ask if she finds catBuffy sexy like she did about VampBuffy.

Review of chapter "Part One" from (Moderator)acs
Review:
Just what the doctor ordered.

I've been in desperate need of a story like this for days/weeks. A story of whimsical Buffy and a gentle Willow. And friendship. And possibly love.

I'm sure at some point there'll be angst but not in a harsh manner and Buffy and Willow will come out the other side in good shape.

Looking forward to Willow's reaction to a completely transformed Buffy.

Thanks for sharing.
