Review of chapter "Epilogue" from robertlisle
Review:
Great story. I loved the way it ended with House and Buffy getting together. Too bad about Kennedy though.
Comments from author:
Thank you for reading and reviewing.

My first draft had everyone living happily ever after – even Kennedy and Willow. But that just didn’t feel right and I couldn’t end it on that note. If felt as though there had to be some tragedy to appreciate the good. So for the “greater good” of the story poor Kennedy “opted out”.

I’m glad you liked it and thank you again for your review.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from VillageOrchid
Review:
I wasn'texpecting the story to end soquickly, but I liked how you tried to wrap up loose ends. Do xander and dawn not eistin this world?
Comments from author:
Thank you for reading and reviewing.

In my mind Dawn and Xander exist but they were busy with their own lives. In the original ending I had included them – Dawn continued her studies in England and Xander stayed in Africa even after all of the Slayers reverted back to Potentials to work for Habitat for Humanity employing his construction skills for the greater good. But since neither character was present during the story their parts were cut…

Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from VillageOrchid
Review:
I like the storytelling, and how you are keeping to the genre of medical mystery, even if magical in source.

Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from Gideon
Review:
Well done everyone, the remaining girls are saved! I liked Foreman's summary of the situation, it was actually very accurate. I don't think Buffy will enjoy the last part but I guess it is necessary.
Comments from author:
Thank for reading and reviewing. It took forever to post the last Chapter but I can write that it is finally done!

Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from (Current Donor)mmooch
Review:
OMG, is House *really* going to try and kill Buffy? Or will it be one of those temporary deaths like her first one?
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review. It was just a short death for House to fix the balance problem. What is one more death in 'the life of Buffy'?

Review of chapter "Chapter Five" from Gideon
Review:
Wow, that was lateral thinking alright! I don't recall seeing anyone else suggest Buffy has to die again in order to fix the balance problem. It is brilliant! I feel sorry for the other girls that have to be depowered, but better than dead I guess. Scary that Whistler wants House to join up with the PTB. I don't know if that would be good for the world or not!
Comments from author:
Thank you for your encouragement and review. I am glad that you have enjoyed the story so far -- “thinking outside of the box” is not always appreciated. House the Balance Demon could be a fun sequel….

Review of chapter "Chapter Five" from (Current Donor)JanessaRavenwood
Review:
Stopping here and dropping from tracking - it's impossible for me to sustain disbelief any longer. House is more an author mouthpiece than a character in his own right at this point, leaping ahead to conclusions he should *not* be able to make this quickly with the barest of information (obviously so that he can convey the author's views on the situation at the end of Season 7 to the audience), and he's rather OOC as well. This has become more author tract than story at this point. Next.
Comments from author:
I would argue against your assessment of OCC instead labeling it Character Development. Or perhaps, shockingly, one person’s perception of how a character acts/reacts does not match your pre-conceived notions.

It is not unique for an author to use the characters in a story to make a point. Several unexplored plotlines were left in BtVS for fanfic writers to explore including, but not inclusive to, the issue of Good/Evil balance when Buffy was brought back magically.

Had you read this story in its entirety you would have noticed that Buffy “spilled the beans” to House, a character known for snap judgments and lateral thinking. The fact that he came to a quick conclusion is a trait he is known for according to his own show.

Have a little respect for everyone on this site. From my own experience I can say that it takes hours to develop, write and edit a story before it gets posted whereas it takes minutes to flame an author. You have the option to “Stop tracking and hide this story,” I would recommend using it. Next.

Review of chapter "Chapter Five" from Eureka
Review:
So Buffy has to die AGAIN and be brought back..Oh boy! No more extra slayers (except Faith since she WAS brought through the normal way.) And finally HOUSE working for the PTB??????
Comments from author:
Thank you for your review. I hope you enjoy the next installment. House “the Balance Demon” was too fun to pass up.

Review of chapter "Chapter Five" from Darklight
Review:
Anticlimax solution too the problem.

Like the past of Whistler giving House a card with a job offer, going to be fun to see what Houses new hobby be like.

Get more out soon
Comments from author:
I’m glad you have been enjoying this story. I would agree with your assessment that it was anticlimactic but the solution presented itself to me in this manner. Thank you for your review.

Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from Dapsy
Review:
Amazing :D

And I am really curious what is behind that sickness and can be done about it. Also, I am looking forward to House's mind going for a spin as he tries to make sense out of magic and everything else... not to mention the rest of doctors at the hospital being all confused and wondering what is going on(like, whats up with the force field?).
Comments from author:
I'm glad you have been enjoying this story and thank you for the rec. The force field is simply Willow being over-protective over Kennedy. I hope you continue to enjoy it.

Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from pagefault
Review:
Meta comment: This fic deserves more comments than it currently has.

House and magic. What will House think ? Just a thought to consider or throw away:

Maybe House would look for / consider a deeper level of reality. This reality would really just be an extension of our normal reality with a different but still ordered ruleset explorable by empirical means. A host of creatures takes advantage of, lives by the rules of this deeper reality (vampires etc ...).

The Universe needs to make sense to House.
Comments from author:
Thank you very much for your review.

It appears on the show that House spends an inordinate amount of time thinking -- the camera pans to see him lying on the floor, playing a musical instrument or tossing a ball against the wall. After this time of reflective thought he comes to a decision and acts on it and at times behaving irrationally.

I had Willow begin to cure House’s leg as it would act as evidentiary proof that he could not dismiss with logic as being trickery. To some extent his leg represents his limitations and I thought he may accept magic if this physical barrier to his existence were removed.

I hope you like the next chapter.

Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from Gideon
Review:
Healing his leg is actually a good way to offer proof to House. At least he will know that he is not faking it!
I didn't get where Willow arrived though, did she come in with some of the other Slayers? And what happened to the girl with a forcefield around her?
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review. When I wrote this story I had been thinking about the different things that could be done with House to provide proof of the existence of magic. However most of them I figured House would dismiss as hysteria using logic.

The implication of Willow's arrival is that she arrived in the Emergency with Kennedy who she drew a protective force field around. I didn't think that Willow would react rationally to having her partner fall ill.

I hope you continue to enjoy it.

Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from Blackett
Review:
Of course House is going to be skeptical at the mere idea of magic, that Buffy will be greatly annoyed by his attitude and with Kennedy sick Willow will go kaboom very fast....glad that Buffy could keep her in check and that they could do something for House's leg.....can't wait for your next chapter.....so sad to hear that so many girls have died. :(
Comments from author:
Thank you for your review. When I originally came up with the idea of this story I was thinking that the only way that House would truly believe in magic would be to have tangible proof -- and what is more tangible than his leg? I hope you continue to enjoy it.
