Review of chapter "Chapter One" from bradsan
Review:
Good one. I always thought that Ron and Hermione are much like Xander and Willow. They act the same way as the Scoobies do. The only thing they didn't do was turning their backs to Harry. Thank god. The other things are most the same.

I really hope you don't do the pairing thing because Severus and even Remus will do good as friends and maybe a father figures but please no romantic behavior between them.

I love the way Severus and Remus are concerned about Buffy and how Buffy feels save enough to trust them to tell where she had been. I really hope they tell Giles and I do hope that Willow will get her ass served on a plate. Those four were to arrogant to check where she was and I still think they did that on purpose because they didn't want to know. If they knew how could they bring her back and look in to her eyes. They didn't tell Buffy was dead and the buffybot took over her job. I mean the Council, the town and the demons. I stop because otherwise it would be a review where I only rant about the Scoobies and I don't tell you that I like it an has it on tracking so I won't miss a thing.

Can't wait for the next one.

I don't know... Ron turned his back on Harry a few times, and even though Hermione never did, it was a close one as she struggled with her loyalty to her friend and her feelings for Ron guiding her to take his side instead.

As for the Severus/Buffy pairing, I love it. However, if it comes to pass (which I think it will in the final one), then it will either be mentioned only in passing (or at the end) or just implied. Right now, they're friends.

I figure that she'll find it easier to confide in them because they are not part of her world. As for your ranting, it's nothing I haven't thought of before myself. If they had accepted Buffy being back, then why didn't they implore the Council to spring Faith, as she was very obviously on the path to redemption? Why didn't they inform anyone of her death?

Thanks for reviewing!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from ChikaraKatherine
Review:
Perfect. Just perfect. I really liked how Remus and Sev handled things. Both men know how it feels to be down to the nubs. Thats about how Buffy is feeling. She doesn't have a real reason to live right now. Its understandable as she was pulled out of heaven. It would take a while to understand that its ok to live again. Or even how to live again. She had to deal with so much crap. After she was brought back. Its compleat crap that her "friends" didn't realize just what they had done. Then to turn on her, ok won't go there. But a big $%^ you to them. At least Buffy found a reason to live again. At the end of it. Least Harry's getting to meet her. It will be a nice change for Harry. To meet family that doesn't shun him. Family that would have loved to have him stay with them. I hope the boy understands, he needs to be supportive. Harry at the least will understand getting the stick part. Buffy's not really in any shape to deal with angsty teenagers. Nor Hermione, who goddess knows would remind her too much of Willow. Not saying Hermione's a bad person, but the girl should learn some empathy. Ultimately I think Sev might just be what she needs. In his own way Sev understands, what it means to be alive yet dead. He basical lived to try and make sure Lilly's death was not in vain. That was the only thing he lived for. Maybe he and Buffy can be each others reason. Over all a very lovly and emotional work of art. You did an excellent job. I'm very greatful you took the time and effort to write and post this.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Gideon
Review:
A lot healthier for Buffy than confiding in Spike I think and they might actually be able to help, rather than just distract her. Although therapy does not seem to be common in the magical world either.
I'm glad she wants to meet harry but I hope he doesn't expect too much of her. She is not really up to too much in the way of desperate family building like Harry will want. She could tell him about Dawn though. Would Harry be about the same age as Dawn? Trust Snape to dress Buffy in green and silver though. Harry won't be happy to see that. I did lol at Ron's comment though- I'm sure he would be very sad if Snape was taking him shopping!
Comments from author:
Yeah, they really need to employ therapists or mind healers, huh!

If I'm correct in my estimation, than Dawn is Ginny's age in this 'verse. And he would want to know about her also, which is what Buffy was dreading telling them all. As for the robe and cloak, glad you caught that! And it was Snape that chose the robe. ^.^ Harry *might* understand the robe, since it would look nice on her. Ron and his prejudices... they make me laugh, too. Thanks for reviewing!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Valkyrie
Review:
There's something missing in the tone of this one that was there in the tone of the first. I still enjoyed it, mind you. I'm not sure at the relationship that Buffy's supposed to be having with Snape. It's a little unclear.

The tone changes when Buffy confesses as to where she's been. From then on, I feel it fits. I would've left her meeting with Harry for another part and just kept this as her interacting with Snape and Lupin. Will there be another part?
Comments from author:
Thank you for the mention on the tone. I kind of caught it, but it's still not very noticeable to me. However, I believe it's because I actually outlined this one. I've never done that for a fanfic before, and I had a hard time getting the story written because of that. It's almost like my mind had decided I'd already written it (very detailed outline) so why was I bothering to try again.

As for Severus/Buffy interaction, I like to think things worked both ways for them. She could go to them because they weren't part of her world, so she could tell them what she couldn't tell the Scoobs. Likewise, I think since she's so much not a part of Severus' world, he could be less the bitter, cold bastard and more the friend that I think Lily saw when they were kids. Also, he *did* just find out she had been ripped from heaven. Shock and whatnot leading him to offer physical comfort (in a healthier was than with Spike). So, currently, their relationship is that of friends.

The bit down at the end there, that's when I had about ten minutes left of the day that I could post in, and I said screw it and threw out the outline. And the Harry meeting was meant to be longer, but I a) didn't have time, b) couldn't get the right approach to a few things that were bothering me and c) I figured that the readers can infer Harry's horror to meeting his sister finally after he'd been told she was dead, and to have Snape embracing her.

Thanks for the review! I enjoyed it and if you see any tonal changes or crap writing in anything else you read, feel free to let me know! And yeah, there'll be at least one more. Two at the most, though.
