Review of chapter "Epilogue" from Keshkreature
Review:
I really loved your story! It really makes me want to go back and play more of the Star Wars MMO though! I played at launch, and quit a few months before it went FTP, but it was a very good game :) Sorry I didn't start reading this until you finished it.
Comments from author:
Hello there! Please don't apologize. I'm just glad that you read and enjoyed the story at all. If you don't mind some of the restrictions that F2P puts on you, then I would highly recommend playing the stories for the eight classes. Free is a good price for awesome stories.

Thank you again for your kind words, and here's wishing you a Very Happy Holiday!

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from WhippingDawn
Review:
A good story, very enjoyable, and I really didn't see the end coming.

I was mixed up several times in the last chapters though, and the story became hard to follow. But it probably was your intention to show events happening simultaneously in rapid succession. Most difficult, and it does not change my opinion that the story is enjoyable. Thank you!

Hey there! So sorry for the delay in getting back to this comment. It somehow got lost and didn't make it to my inbox. But yeah, I did intend for a lot of the Endgame scenes to be shifting back and forth from Buffy to Faith, as if they were finishing each other's paragraphs in their own ways. I can see how it could be confusing, and I do apologize for that. Still, I am glad you enjoyed the story.

Thank you for taking the time to leave this comment, and Best Wishes for you and yours! ^_^

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from PJxxxxx
Review:
Ultimately, I liked this story. I still have trouble believing that either Buffy OR Faith would actually go that far with the Sith approach to the Dark Side. I think if you had them in Sith training from earlier on in their careers as Slayers (Season 3 for Faith or earlier for Buffy), it might be plausible, but by the time they are post-Chosen ages I think it was a bit of a stretch that Buffy would put aside 7-8 years or whatever of continuously fighting the dark and go along with the Sith approach to power. But given that it was a choice that became the centerpiece of the whole story, I think you handled it nicely. If I were Buffy or Faith, however, I would be a little PO'ed to have to go through all that just because everyone wanted them to hook up. Perhaps a simple, "go dance with her, chump," might have sufficed? Overall, well done.

Thank you. I think...

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from DarthTenebrus
Review:
Damn, finally done, eh? A good damn, though, just like the last one was. Well written, well ended, and it put a big grin on my face. The epilogue was touching and, as another reviewer put it, bittersweet, but the last words were perfectly chosen.

Thank you very much for this. May the Force be with you.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from Muadzin
Review:
And thus the story ends. But like all stories it's not about the destination but about the journey. And all journeys never truly end, they only pause for a moment before another one begins. Thus ends the fortune cookie wisdom. By the way, I just checked, in the category Buffy centered Star Wars fiction yours is now the longest, and you're the fifth longest in all Star Wars crossovers.

Your story was also my introduction in the world of KOTOR which I have to admit I now find way more interesting then those of the movies.
Comments from author:
Thank you so much for all of your help throughout this story. I remember you were always overjoyed when I posted something new after a long absence, and I am delighted to bring this story to what I hope is a satisfying conclusion. It is a bittersweet experience for me, and I can only hope that you and others to come find enjoyment in what I have written.

Thanks again, and take care!

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from lunalurker
Review:
There aren't nearly enough good SW:TOR stories out there, at least not that I've found so far, and this one has become my favorite yet. How well (or poorly) Faith and Buffy acclimated to being Jedi and Sith worked out much better than I thought it would, and the plot scaled quite nicely, and the other characters and local color came through really well too.
Well done and thank you for writing. :)
Comments from author:
Thank you for your kind words! Putting Buffy and Faith in the Sith and Jedi camps, respectively, started out in my mind as little more than a gimmick, but I'm so happy that the story managed to find a greater purpose. This is probably the single story that I've put the most forethought and planning into, and I'm glad that it worked out as well as it did for you, the reader.

Thank you again for your review, and I hope you are well.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from ShyBob
Review:
Bittersweet (and totally appropriate) conclusion to a good story. I started reading just to see how horribly Buffy and Faith would be stereotyped, but found a well-conceived role-reversing novel with B/F goodness. Thanks for giving us the ending so many readers were hoping for--I was concerned you'd whack one of our superheroines and the other would be stranded.
Comments from author:
Hello there! Thank you so much for your comments! I am happy to defy your expectations in a positive way, and I'm glad I could give you an ending that satisfied you. Comments like these just enhance the joy of writing so much that I just have to say 'thank you' once more. ^_^

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from Zechstein
Review:
So, it's time for my last review of this story, this time for two chapters at once. The battle against the emperor was just what I've come to expect from you: Well paced and well written, with old foes overcoming their differences in the face of a common threat and an explosive finale, you know, the good stuff.

Although I must confess that I was a little bit disappointed that the Emperor went for the Load-Bearing Boss option so that our heroes had to be saved by emergency teleport - not because it was badly written, but because I really wanted to see the reaction of the Jedi council when they realized that a) Faith managed to acquire a girlfriend in the middle of a battle and b) said girlfriend is a dark Lord of the Sith.

The epilogue was also nice, brief but touching. I found it a bit strange that Buffy and Faith would outlive nearly everybody else, especially Dawn. On the other hand when you are working in the demon-hunting business to die of old age is fairly unusual not only for Slayers, so it's not unbelievable.

I have to agree with my fellow reviewers though: You left quite a few open questions that could be addressed in a sequel, should you ever want to write one. Examples include:
- How did the Scoobies react upon hearing Buffy's and Faith's tale?
- How hard was it for Shar, Tal and Vira to adjust to life on Earth?
-Did they ever build a school for Force-sensitives (provided that there are natural occurring Force-sensitives on Earth) and if so, under what codex?

But for now, this review will come to an end. It's been a wild ride and I'm grateful that you shared it with us. May the Force be with you.
Comments from author:
Thank you so much for this! I am sorry to have disappointed you with the nature of the end of the boss fight, but I am glad that you enjoyed the story overall. It has been a privilege to share my work with you and everyone else who has read this humble work of mine. Regarding a sequel or a companion piece, there are no plans right now, but I will never say never.

Thank you for your support, and May the Force be with you as well. ^_^

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from ShalaDakiri
Review:
You know, I actually wasn't sure if I wanted Buffy and Faith to return to Earth or not, especially when it turned out to be Wish-triggered. I'm betting they had plenty of fun playing with vampires and demons with their new abilities and toys.

Anyway, when the Emperor started going on about wanting to infect other universes and timelines, I'd wondered if he was somehow linked to the First, back on Buffy's and Faith's Earth.
Comments from author:
From my understanding, I think he only wanted to take over other galaxies outside of the 'galaxy far, far away' in which Star Wars takes place. Either way, still a frightening concept.

Thank you for your review. I hope you enjoyed the story.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from Harry
Review:
*Brushes tears away* A very touching ending. To see that F and B did not die to those that they were supposed to slay, but of old age, is a fitting tribute to them. I hope that their memories are never forgotten.
Comments from author:
Oh, I'd say that they are fairly unforgettable. I'm glad you liked the ending. Thank you for taking the time to leave so much feedback for this humble story of mine. I hope it's been as fun for you to read as it has been for me to write.
