Review of chapter "Crypt" from inarae
Very fun! I just saw cabin in the woods for the first time and went looking for a buffy cross the second I finished. This is hitting the spot! Thanks for writing and sharing.

Review of chapter "Crypt" from kissrocks
I like this story. I was just watching CitW last night so it is all fresh in my mind. I love when people take my favorite things and smoosh them together. That is what you've done here and I think you've done it well. I only hope that there is still more to come.

Review of chapter "Crypt" from (Current Donor)DreamSmith
Well, I like the concept here--that Faith might or might not follow the traditional 'white hat' role of a Slayer, that she might make the choice that Buffy wouldn't make.

Eleven chapters in, and Faith has had ZERO impact on the story. So much so that the 'kids' in the Cabin are still spouting their movie lines word for word (which also smacks a bit of laziness, to be honest; you could change it up a little, surely).

If she's not doing anything, if she's not changing anything at all, there isn't much reason to read the story. Even if she's yet to make her decision about whether she'll save them or condemn them, she needs to be DOING things, interacting with them, instead of standing by and passively observing. Having her destroy a (redneck, pain-worshipping moron) Zombie or two, or, say, freeing Jules and carrying her to safety without destroying the zombie, or catching the beartrap/chain thingie in mid-flight and throw it off into the woods before leading Curt and Jules back to the Cabin... that would have been hero stuff, and great fun to read... even as, in her mind, Faith was wondering if she should leave them to die. Watching the Control Room Team get flustered and try to adjust for this new factor would have been interesting.
But so far you've instead had Faith do effectively nothing at all.

This still has potential, but for the story to realize that potential, Faith needs to become an active participant.

Thank you for your review. Faith will become a more active participant. As it was, I wanted her to mainly be an observer. I didn't want her to take over the story yet. She could have easily saved them from dying, but I didn't want that. As for the dialogue, I added lines from the movie that I liked. Faith did have a minor part to play as far as blowing up the tunnel and fighting with the men who came to remove her from the scene. Faith's main part is coming. I'm sorry that you were not satisfied with the story so far, but thank you for reading it and leaving your thoughts.

Review of chapter "Zombies and Ghostly Voices" from Jorrie
It's interesting so far. I like this kind of exploration into the different shades of grey. Faith is definitely much more suited for this "job". I'm interested to see how it all plays out. It would also be cool to get more of an idea of what's going through Faith's head. I mean, it makes sense she would have more conviction in committing the murkier aspects for the greater good, but I would imagine she'd still have quite a struggle with it. To sort of "hear" more of this struggle in her perspective would definitely put more depth to the story. Just a suggestion, in any case I'm looking forward to reading more. I'll be on the look out, can't wait!
Comments from author:
Thank you for your review. The next chapter that I am working on right now will be the climax of her internal struggle and will really showcase what she is feeling. At least I hope it will. I'm glad that you like it so far and I hope I can really incorporate your suggestion in the next chapter.

Review of chapter "Explosions Good" from Marcel
Interesting story. While my preferences would be to find a way to make the impossible happen (beat the ancients), I'm curious to see where you're going to take this.

Review of chapter "Explosions Good" from jormunguard
Thank you, I had actually never heard of this movie before you started posting. I watched it and it was a really interesting take on a horror movie, so thanks for raising my interest. You're doing a great job involving Faith in the storyline so far. I'm very interested in where you go with it from here.

Review of chapter "Explosions Good" from batzulger
Stilson has the best line in the movie regarding those 9 year olds...
Comments from author:
Yes he does and that is why it is in the beginning. I knew I wasn't going to be able to add everything from the movie but that was one of those things I wanted in there. I was going to put the Harbinger's prank call in there but it ended up getting cut. Thank you for the review.

Review of chapter "Dream" from CPTSkip
Excellent beginning. I love CitW and can't wait to see how Faith totally fraks up the story line and saves the day. Lol!
Comments from author:
Thank you. Faith has a choice to make and it will be interesting to see which side she chooses. I'm still working out what her choice will be. Will she save the kids and fight the ancient ones or will she kill the kids off in order to save the world? Decisions, decisions. lol
