Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)Sulien
Review:
Yes, Giles' dream is how things SHOULD have gone in canon, at least as far as I'm concerned. *sigh* Yeah, I've pretty much given up on Whedon because I just don't care for the grimdark he revels in.

Thanks for sharing. :)

It's TV Schtick. That's how you get the viewers unfortunately. Keep the conflict going whether it be physical or emotional.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from DieselDriver
Review:
Well POO!!! A dream? Why not an alternate universe?
Comments from author:
Mostly because I didn't want to leave it unfinished. But if you feel like using it as if it weren't a dream, please do so.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from DarthTenebrus
Review:
"I'm sorry, Faith"? Exactly what went on there? Was he planning to throw her to the wolves?
Comments from author:
No. It was all a dream. He's apologizing to the cosmos for thinking of What He Should Have Said too late.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)KColl
Review:
I think given how Giles had treated Faith to that point,
getting her to trust him even if he'd said all the right
things as you list them here (and very eloquently too)
would have been difficult. Good story though.
Comments from author:
I think she was closer to that point than you might think. But to each their own.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from FallenGods
Review:
This was a pretty good what might have been, and then those two lines at the end make you realise it never was. Now Giles is reflecting on the path not taken with us and it's poignant and brilliant. Very well done.
Comments from author:
Thank you. I really like this one and wish I could have written more. I may take those last two lines off sometime if the muse ever strikes again.

Review:

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Gideon
Review:
I hardly think that Giles' quip about Tea was "quipping with the best of them" :) The rest of the story was pretty awesome of Giles though. I like how he said it was self defense not murder. I don't know if he should have said that the WC would set up another human to die and one to take the rap. I don't think Buffy would be happy to know about that. She doesn't have much experience with humans that would be better off dead.
Comments from author:
Maybe. But Giles got so few good lines on the show.

A man jumps out at a woman in a dark alley. That's clearly self-defense.

I like to think that the WC is just as ruthless in protecting their weapons as they are in deploying them. And that lack of experience with evil humans came back to bite them later.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from RebeccaAshling
Review:
It's a great shame that this never happened in canon but Season Three would have been duller otherwise without Faith going bad. Great story and the ending was poignant.
Comments from author:
I know. This is kinda my own fan service, "If only this had happened." I'm sure they could have come up with another monster. Thank you for the review.
