Review of chapter "The Walk-in Clinic" from agnar
Review:
The biggest issue for me is Xander doesn't seem to notice or acknowledge the werewolves and vampires he just dealt with are entirely different to the sunnydale versions. Buffy vamps are little more than animals in most cases. Master vamps are the only ones that seem to retain any rationality, intelligence and willpower.

The minions are all like wild animals.

That's not true of the underworld vamps. Ruthless, amoral, violent, etc. yes. But they tend to live in fancy estates, dress in fancy clothes, behave in a civilized manner and not feed off of humans directly, most of the time to remain hidden.

Xander would've noticed the vast differences.
Comments from author:
True unless we assume my fic is taking place in the middle of season eight by which time they've met beings like The Immortal, the real Dracula and set up their operation in Scotland. They'd be more seasoned by then

In truth this was an early effort

I like to think I've gotten better since then.

Of course loving self-delusion as I do, I like to think a lof things

Thanks for reading and reviewing

Review of chapter "eight" from Fayari
Review:
The problem with the Scooby gang is that for all of their supposed savvy, they did their level best to alienate the one person in their core group who could actually strategize for shit. Buffy, despite her constant complaining about her powers and situation, lorded her Slayer powers over everyone, but especially Xander, and basically used him as her own personal dog to make herself feel better. Willow NEVER (and I checked all the episode transcripts several times) took his side in any argument or confrontation despite claiming to be his best friend. Giles never even acknowledged the problems with the two treating their supposed fellow soldier in such ways. And all three of them treated Xander as if he was a retarded kid who had to be coddled and protected at all times, not someone part of the unit.

Then they wonder why Xander would separate from their group. If any of my men treated a fellow soldier the way they treated Xander, I'd send them back to basic. If they're so willing to baby someone on the team, then they'll get babied themselves. I'm not about to take kids into the field.

I've always tried to split the difference between showing Xander as competent and even skilled yet showing that he is flawed. Sometimes letting his heart do the thinking instead of his head

Review of chapter "Eleven" from Obsidian
Review:
awwww and it ends like that with no real resolution?!? And it was starting to get interesting.
I liked what I read tho really needs a beta to fix the grammer and spelling issues.
Other than that Great story so far, would love to see it completed.
Comments from author:
I am embarrassed to say this is an early effort. I wasn't nearly as mindful about presentation as I am now. Thank you for reading and enjoying it though.

Review of chapter "Eleven" from limejuize
Review:
I love how you incorporated this two worlds! I would love to see just how Amy would be able to turn Xander from his love of both Willow and Buffy. I hope you continue this some day because I really enjoyed it so far. Update soon!!
Comments from author:
Thanks for reading and glad you enjoyed it... To be honest, I kind of painted myself into a corner with this story. I still like it though and If I can ever figure out how to resolve all the plot threads I created I might bring this to a satisfactory conclusion.

Review of chapter "Five" from Schiavona
Review:
I glad to see that you've continued this story. The new parts are great and I like that you've brought the Fang Gang and Oz into it as well. You've maintained the dark feel and style of the story so well, it just sucks you into it and takes you for a ride. Your characterization of Xander is still spot on and I thought that his views on women were especially interesting. The banter between Michael and Xander was great had me LMAO. I'll be looking forward to more of this story as well.

Thanks
Schiavona
