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?

Review of chapter "Halloween, part I" from ChefJackButler
Review:
Ah.

I totally didn't get that from the text of your story. Quite the opposite, in fact.
Comments from author:
Well then, I'm not writing it very well. I need to work on that.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part XI" from SilverWave
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.

Review of chapter "Halloween, part I" from ChefJackButler
Review:
So you're arguing that "gay and doesn't know it" Willow isn't feeling the least bit attracted to Xander right now?

That strains incredulity.
Comments from author:
Au contraire, mon frere! I am arguing that Willow is feeling attracted, and is so freaked out that she can hardly stay in the same room sometimes. :D

Oh dear! Competent Evil Overlords...better have willow check for a web-connection and IP Traffic to a certain webpage.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part XI" from (Current Donor)JanessaRavenwood
Review:
I see the previous reviewer beat me to it. You know the big bad's hideout? And it's not even underground? There's absolutely no reason *not* to jump straight to "let's firebomb it" at the first available opportunity.
Comments from author:
What makes you think it's not underground? How many of these empty warehouses have underground areas, connections into the Sunnydale tunnels, etc?

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part XI" from hamishog
Review:
Work smarter, not harder. And if you know that a certain effete vampire is nesting in an otherwise empty warehouse then what is wrong with a constructive molotov cocktail. Urban renewal at its finest.
This is an interesting piece and I am enjoying it somewhat. On the other hand I'd like to see Xander again. What I am reading now has given me a certain sense of foreboding.
Comments from author:
Forebode away! :D And you might see Xander again. I'm wacky like that.

Review of chapter "Halloween, part I" from ChefJackButler
Review:
Got to say that the "romantic subplot" in this story is getting stale. Its hit "shit or get off the pot" a while ago and now just feels like you're torturing your characters.
Comments from author:
Well, it's going to stagnate while there's no Xander, and it may resurrect itself later in the story.

Okay, this guy plans are inproving.

It's always a pain when the badguys up their planning skills, and it's usually fun when the goodguys do.

Review of chapter "A Summer Interlude, part X" from Senko
Review:
You know I got bored and started rereading this, just made the connection between Scott and a certain blond Xena passed. Could be awkward dealing with having actually done that (multiple times) rather than just remembering it although I suspect he became someone other than the Disney Cinderella or even the original one. Of course just what stage she was at could seriously affect just how awkward and potentially painful it was.The swim team bit got me thinking about how their hormone inducted transformation later may interact with ha ving been real mermaids. Perhaps less swamp boy more. . .

There's also the interesting thought that if Scott suddenly got interested in boys and Xena was bisexual could this mean Xander is also going to become a bit more inclined that way with his/her new memories? The possibilities of a bisexual witch and bisexual shape shifter are quite extensive even if they're outside the scope of this story.

As for this chapter I haven't really much to say other than it should be interesting to see how Xander combines dealing with the vampires and convincing miss summers of the truth. Nice to see them finally getting around to taking the time to check up on and help Joyce, Cordy is good for that.

Anyway still enjoying this story.
Comments from author:
Xander has been influenced by his costume. Buffy was. Scott was. The swim team guys were...

I'm seeing a trend.
