Review of chapter "Chapter 9" from BellJarette
Very nice. One of the best and most original Halloween stories. Do please continue.

Review of chapter "Chapter 9" from bookworm
Great to see more of this. As others have mentioned, very interesting points letting Ethan see his own similarity to Xander, and the section about Jesse. I wonder what Willow will do now, and also how taking a (minor) bullet will affect Snyder. Keep up the good work!

Review of chapter "Chapter 9" from Chan
That crazy vampire admittedly he doesn't realize that the mage is Chaos newest beau but still chaos might be upset if something were to happen to him.

Cool story. Can't wait for the next chapters to be posted. Xander is actually getting some proper training finally. :-)

Review of chapter "Chapter 9" from Chikageko
one of my favorites on this site. wish you would update more often. your equating xander and ethan rayne was something I found particularly interesting. whati really can't wait to see though is your ideas on magical training. Joss whedon set up the potential for xmen like badassery with his magical control excersizes in canon, but never did anything with it. TK, telepathy, cryo&pyrokinesis were mentioned as control excersizes straight from willows mouth, but never went anywhere after that.

Review of chapter "Chapter 9" from Infinix
Thank you for writing this. It's interesting, rather well written and most importantly the way you portray the characters is amazing. I am especially enjoying the explorations of Ethan, Giles and Xander. They all feel like very real and human people. Not since I last read Litmouse's "Father Goose" series have I quite so enjoyed the filling out of the characters. Most authors just write them as THEY see them and hopefully they resemble the original character. Good authors show the characters as they are just in new situations or just making different choices but you are here doing that and also showing something more. I was a bit worried that Eris was going to be a bit Mary Sue but so far I loke what you have done with here. Please continue this.
Comments from author:
Glad you're enjoying it. The joy of fic is not being constrained by executive meddling and pandering to the ratings, so nobody has to act like a braindead idiot, or be the designated chew-toy all the time. It never sat well with me, that smugness in the show when Ethan got dragged off and disappeared, because frankly, he was very small-time compared to some of the things the ostensible 'good guys' did to each other and got forgiven - and he had the potential to be so much fun, as a recurring awful reminder to Giles of his embarrassing youth.

With Eris, the original challenge issued was to have another deity or power muscle in on the action, so I took it literally. There are reasons for her not to be up to worldbreaker power-levels, because that just gets boring, but you can do a lot with the right information.

Review of chapter "Chapter 9" from (Current Donor)dogbertcarroll
I never even thought about Ethan setting up Buffy and counting on the slayer spirit to kill the sleeper. It's probably more effective than using a vampire.
The idea that Xander became twice as loud and cheerful to try to make up for the loss of Jesse also never occurred to me. Great chapter!
Comments from author:
If you follow the logic of only one demonic tenant per ride, then it would seem like the sort of half-thought out disaster Ethan's planning tended to lead to - he was going to end up with a superstrong pis$ed-off something, either way. The Jesse thing just struck me that way when I looked back at it.

Review of chapter "Chapter 9" from dwnstr
I was happy to see the update. This is one of my favorite fics and yet it gets better every time I read a new chapter.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from aeraveil
I can see Buffy going for the 'doomed romance' angle, and far too many people seem to think that vampires are sexy. (Cold feet on a man are bad enough, cuddling a corpse is But yes, something was off somewhere for Giles to not kick up. I will be addressing that.

Sooner or later, the PTB are going to start looking seriously for whoever has managed to bork their entire chessgame. They just think they are dealing with a lucky human with a few magical talents. As opposed to a pis$ed-off Primal Force of the Universe.

Yetch. Walking blood-sucking corpses sexy? I swear, people are stupid. I refuse on general principles to even watch movies or read books that have vampires in a positive light, hello! They think we're happy meals on legs, not romantic interests!

Heh. Do not screw with Chaos. It has ways of gorking you up in ways you don't want to be gorked.

Review of chapter "Chapter 9" from (Recent Donor)TheDivineDemon
Glad to see this continuing. This fic is so much better than the usual crap that crops up in fanfiction.

Review of chapter "Chapter 9" from Genuka
I suspect that Eris is going to bring Spike to heel.

Review of chapter "Chapter 9" from Oxnate
Very nice. Far enough away from canon to make me happy.

Review of chapter "Chapter 9" from trongod
Being a long term Drucilla fan, I gotta ask - dust Spike, return Dru to human via Chaos spell - hey, what could be more chaotic than that? - so we can keep Kendra around a bit longer...

Come to that, Calling Faith via Kendra's heart stopping from electrical shock further extolls Chaos AND gives Faith a safer haven than canon at this point. Plus it'd really, really make Buffy's fat head explode...
