Review of chapter "That's What Mothers Do" from etienneofthewestwind
It seems Jessica underestimates her son. Though if he does find something out, it might not be easy to convince Rossi...
Comments from author:
She is more delusional than anything really. And yeah, convincing Rossi is going to be a real piece of work. But that will come late. Thanks for the review :)

Review of chapter "That's What Mothers Do" from Rod
I'm intrigued by the idea, and your plotting seems solid and characterisation decent, but two things are really beginning to bug me; the very frequent broken formatting in paragraphs, and the sheer! number! of! exclamation! marks! Multiple exclamation! marks!!!!eleventy1! even. Both are disruptive to the flow of the story, making it harder work to read, so please could you tone down the exclamation marks and fix the unintentional line breaks.
Comments from author:
I have to admit you made me laugh. The broken formatting I fear has no other reason than me being unsure of how to form them. Oh I know how, but it all seem so dense when I re-read that I'm always wondering if maybe I should space out some things or not and it leads to messy formatting :|
The multiple exclamation marks.... XD So sorry, it's a bad habit. I really need to work on that, but it's become such an automatic usage that I sort of forget it doesn't have anything to do in anything but chatroom stupidities. lol
I will tone down the exclamation marks and fix the line breaks.
Thanks for the review and big kuddos for the honesty. :D

Review of chapter "That's What Mothers Do" from msdarque
Wow.. Xander's mother is delusional.
Intriguing story. Wonder how Xander learns of his fate and how goes the confrontation with real dad (Rossi)..?
With everything, I bet Rossi would be really happy.
Congrats! Eager to read more.
Comments from author:
Yes, she sadly is. Very much so, lol.
How Xander will learn of his real parentage will come up soon enough so you'll see. And the confrontation with Rossi, ah well, who knows. ;D *likes to be a tease*
Thanks for reading and big thanks for reviewing :D

Review of chapter "That's What Mothers Do" from lothlorien
Brilliant. It's interesting to see how suspicious Xander is when his mother starts paying attention. How long will he need to figure things out? Please continue soon
Comments from author:
He wouldn't need that much time if other things didn't keep taking his attention elsewhere. Like I mentioned, Buffy's 17th is around the corner. But I guess you'll see how it goes. :)
Thanks for reviewing and of course I'll continue :D

Review of chapter "That's What Mothers Do" from SilverMidnight
I am liking it so far... I love CM and BTVS so I get excited whenever there is a crossover...can't wait for more!
Comments from author:
Thanks! I love them too and the CM section is sadly lacking in Xander-centered crossovers! I will try and keep a tight schedule but I can't promise anything.
Thanks for the review :)

Review of chapter "That's What Mothers Do" from Gideon
Unfortunately Jessica is still fooling herself but then I guess she doesn't know that her son's best friend is an uberhacker in her spare time. Once Willow has a name to go on she will surely dig up something in no time. Perhaps she will find that there is no record of Xander's birth?
Comments from author:
Well, she sort of disinterested herself of her son's life around the time they were 10/11 so she wouldn't have known Willow was that good with a computer. Our resident uberhacker is sure to find something, but yeah, Angelus is around the corner so it might take some time. And who knows what she'll find! :)
Thanks for reviewing.

Review of chapter "That's What Mothers Do" from AllenPitt
She has a cunning plan, that cannot possibly fail! But still, nice exposition on her reasoning. Raising a baby wasn't as easy as it looked, who knew.
This could get very messy if Angelus returns on schedule & Rossi shows up. With a serial killer stalking the populace. That scene where a ghost (S3, Amends) explains how he came home & found his kids in bed then realized they were dead. Ouch. Just the kind of thing a certain person encounters in his job.
Comments from author:
Hahahah, yes, yes she has! Very Bolderick of her but the expression fits. XD And thanks, I don't really like having slightly crazy characters but I always seem to have at least one :| And yeah, who knew, right?
It has a large chance of turning real messy real quick, yes. I had forgotten that episode, but it does make sense. I'll entertain that idea, thanks for feeding my plot bunny! lol
And big thanks for reviewing :)

Review of chapter "That's What Mothers Do" from Waverly
Whoah, Xander's mom is a piece of work. Awesome job, really enjoying this, can't wait to see Rossi and the others show up!
Comments from author:
She is. But as she's still fully functioning I guess she never sought any help xD Rossi's meeting with Xander is being fleshed out excruciatingly slow but it will come, lol.
Thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "It's Never A Zebra..." from AonGealach
I am so glad it came to a head. I want to see what will happen next. Please post more.
Comments from author:
Yeah the tension just cranked up a notch with that last scene. It isn't going to go down anytime soon too, what with what happens after Buffy's 17th and all.
Happy to please and trying to not take too much time but the plot needs fleshing out. So, sorry if it takes some time.
Thanks for the review :)

Review of chapter "It's Never A Zebra..." from (Past Donor)morgyair
Loved the will be interesting to see where you take the story but as the previous review said...take you time and really flesh out your characters.
Comments from author:
Thanks, it didn't come out quite like I'd first planned it but I'm happy it still came out okay.
I will take my time and I know the characters need a bit of fleshing out. At the moment, the only ones I am sure of, are Jessica, Xander and Rossi. The others are a bit blurry, I need some work done on them. Especially the girls, I have the hardest time not falling into clichés and unnecessary bashing.
Thanks for your review :)

Review of chapter "Just Another Day" from azerjaban
My reaction when I read the synopsis to this story:

The moment I saw that headstone the EXACT same idea came to me (though Xander was older, more world wise and only had one eye)

I'm intrigued as to where you'll take this. I'd be happy to help you bounce some ideas but I suck at spelling/grammar.

Please continue, and take your time flesh out your story/characters
Comments from author:
ahahah thanks. And yeah I toyed with the idea of having comic!verse Xander rather than mid-series!Xander but like I said, my knowledge of that part of cannon is flimsy at best. Internet is great, but I am lazy and prefer to stay in my comfort zone.
And the headstone moment must have been a mine gold for more than the two of us I'm sure! It's just like when Abby from NCIS discovers she's got a brother!!! That made the plot bunny infestation in my brain go RABID lol
Your help would be really appreciated, but as I don't understand the PM logs on TtH maybe emails would be better, or msn, whichever you'd prefer? The friend that usually serves as my personal man-servant and sounding board has taken a leave of absence and I'd love to have a second opinion on a few things. My email is in my profile if you decide to agree :)
Thanks for the review. :D
