Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part XII" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Better to have a plan than no plan. Enjoyed the nuances of the character moments both in action and in though here.
Comments from author:
And it's better to have lots of plans to cover all those times when your original plan fails horribly. :D

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part XII" from DieselDriver
Review:
I wish you would refer to "Xendra" as "she" and Xander as "he". I get confused when there's two women talking and you refer to "he". Sorry, I'm fixated on form I suppose. I treat people as they appear. Jade is a little girl. Xendra is a woman. Xander is a man. Ayla is an exception although if I met a person with his "affliction" I would treat him as a woman unless or until I was notified of that person's preference. Yes I know in this story Xendra still thinks of herself as Xander but physically she's a woman, with all the perks and the not so perks that go with it.
Comments from author:
I've thought about this a lot - particularly because of the Whateley Universe - and Xendra insists on thinking that way. I've tried writing it in a couple styles, but Xendra always comes back to a position of 'I do not care what I look like, inside I am still Xander Harris, Cali guy'. Note that he's losing on the 'California' front as well, since he's hanging with Uncle Rupert and doing that accent all the time.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part XII" from (Current Donor)Shieldage
Review:
Nice touch with the letter openers. I have one where the new mortuary intern severs the arms of suspicious corpses so if they rise they can't dig themselves out. Which is effective against zombies as well as vampires, but a *lot* more obvious on inspection.

Awesome job switching the toe tags and having his name being different from the one he's buried under actually matter.

Great safety precautions
Comments from author:
Thanks. Willow's pretty ingenious once Xander comes up with a weird idea. They're a fairly dangerous team.

Well, this little demonstration is going about as well as I suspected it would.

Nice!

But you would have had me with the Notice me not spell.

Its testable :-)

Joyce got bitten by Darla IN HER OWN KITCHEN and didn't wise up. That's some serious Sunnydale Syndrome there.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part XII" from hamishog
Review:
There was one fic where Xander talked a coroner into planting a toothpick in the heart of all corpses that died in a suspicious manner. Don't remember the title or who wrote it but it was a clever idea, self-dusting vamps.
I guess it helps that Joyce knows her first (official) vampire; it will make it more real. And she'll be able to check.
Comments from author:
Assuming she can make herself believe, when there are consequences to accepting it.

And then they will have to assure her that it wasn't a dream.

Or a hallucination.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part XI" from dcarson
Review:
Is Willow a anime fan? If she can't break the Xena shifting spell totally maybe Ranma 1/2 will come to mind as a way to alter the spell. Or at least bring that up to Xander a possibility to see his expression.
Comments from author:
There will be a Ranma 1/2 joke coming up, but it won't be from Willow.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part XI" from Starfox
Review:
That is a cunning plan indeed. And more complications - at least for Willow. Giles and Xendra don't really have such problems with killing humans helping vampires I'd guess. I loved the talk with Willow in the car - I wonder when Willow will discover she's bisexual.

Edit: But in canon, her boyfriend and first crush/love hasn't been turned into a girl, so that might speed things up.
Comments from author:
It may take a while, given that in canon she was grappling with it well into season 4.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part XI" from (Recent Donor)draconin
Review:
I really like the idea of the pre-emtive staking via 'letter opener'. I don't recall seeing it anywhere else so kudos for originality; you should have been a Scooby! :-)
Comments from author:
Thanks. My brain works in strange and wondrous ways. Mostly just strange, though. :D

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part XI" from DieselDriver
Review:
It's all well and good to not want to kill anyone but war is a bad time and sometimes you have to kill the enemy soldiers even though they are just plain old people like you and me. It's the leaders who start the war that need the killing. To bad we can't just make them fight it out between themselves. I do have to admit though, Hitler probably could have taken FDR given the polio side effects. Hmm. A proxy in the case of an infirm leader. Who would you pick to fight their übermensch? By that I don't mean literally Superman, just their best fighter. Maybe a Steven Seagal (the guys he plays, not the real him).
Comments from author:
Despite the dark tone of some seasons, killing humans was a big deal in all of BtVS. The accidental death of the vice-mayor was made into a huge deal. Giles having to kill Ben was a powerful moment. Dark Willow being ready and able to kill people was a big Moral Event Horizon. It was completely different from, say, 'The Man from UNCLE' where the good guys would cheerfully kill people all over the place.

On the other hand, when I move Harry and Hermione and Ron to the AlexVerse, that whole 'killing is the ultimate evil' is going to go away really fast.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part XI" from grd
Review:
Love the prestaking idea. Switching tags is just genius. Vamps will be waiting a long time at the wrong cemetary. Love it. Wonder whar the Joyce plan is?
Comments from author:
If Xander switched tags so the vamps go to the wrong cemetery, what's going to happen to the vamp with the wrong tag?

Ah.

I totally didn't get that from the text of your story. Quite the opposite, in fact.

Well then, I'm not writing it very well. I need to work on that.

Review:
Interesting stuff, but as for "evidence" what about Amy and magic?

:-)
Comments from author:
"Just because Amy is the next David Copperfield, that doesn't mean magic is *real*. What are you going to do next, saw Willow in half? I've seen that."

Joyce is proving pretty stubborn. After all, she saw Buffy and Spike dust two vamps right in front of her the night Kendra died.
