Review:
Just wanted to blurb that this is awesome.
Keep wondering what will happen after, but eh.
Comments from author:
Well thank you for the blurb.

Review of chapter "Chapter 15" from TAO
Review:
Two things...first, I'm pissed at the cliffhanger ending you left us with. Okay, it wasn't a cliffhanger, but it does scream for a continuation.

On a side note, I notice a certain reviewer who "rules with a sword" (or in his case, a very short sword) has decided to rip down your story here as well because it doesn't live up to his expectations. This seems to be a trend with him.

Anyway, I hope you do have sequel to this coming down the pipe. Somehow, I don't see Xander being turned into a throw rug. :-D
Comments from author:
Yes. Luckily I have a much thicker skin than I did when I started writing or its reviews might have actually affected me. Actually, I feel kinda honored. I got 3 reviews and "Defender of the Night" by MMcGregor only got 2. Seriously? How can you not like DotN? MMcGregor is/was awesome and DotN is really good. And I loved your reply to it too.

Just another troll who can't write.

Anyway, thanks for your review. No sequel planned yet, but never say never.

Review of chapter "Chapter 12" from agnar
Review:
Ok, now you've lost me. It was bad enough the first two fucking times, but for a third time Xander just chit chats with a fucking vampire. Bullshit. Xander, Alexander, whatever, would put a bullet in Dru then rob and stake her just like ALL the rest.

You're pulling shit out of your ass to keep her alive when it just wouldn't happen with the Xander you've built til now outside of his encounters with Dru. It is annoying. If she were like, leaving him letters or answering machine messages I'd buy it, then she'd not be in shooting range.

But THREE times and not even trying to shoot the crazy bitch? Bullshit.
Comments from author:
Sorry to hear that.

You're not wrong. But Buffy should have staked Angel when she found out he was a vampire a well. Again, bad decisions make better stories.

Review of chapter "Chapter 10" from agnar
Review:
Ok, I get they don't know Angel went bad yet, but seriously? VAMPIRES CANNOT ENTER GILES APARTMENT!

What the fuck man, there's no place more secure than Giles home from VAMPIRES. No fucking way does he just hand the fucking cross over to Angel alone to go off and hide it. Anywhere Angel can go, Spike can go except private human homes! At the VERY least Giles would have demanded Angel be escorted by Buffy and/or Xander so he didn't just get mugged by Spikes gang of minions! But I honestly don't believe he'd hand it over at all, he'd just assure Angel it was safe and secure somewhere, period.

I like the fic idea and most of the fic so far, but the lengths you're going to make the good guys extra dumb so you can heal Dru are a bit much. I liked the changes to canon but you then kinda went overboard on the idiot ball Giles and crew hold so we swing right back to canon scourge of Europe.

Hell, I'm baffled how Spike or Buffy, one or the other didn't die Halloween. If Xander wasn't around buffy should've died as lady useless, if alexander the death dealer was around, spike should be long since dust.
Comments from author:
Spike is perfectly capable and more than willing to hire someone to do what he wants. He could have hired a demon or even a human to steal the cross for him.

As far as the idiot ball goes: Bad decisions make the best stories. A horror film where no one makes a bad decision becomes a film about a guy who hides in the bushes for 2 hours and then goes home.

Review of chapter "Chapter 7" from agnar
Review:
Giles seems especially dumb this chapter. Yes, lets keep the artifact/relic that is used to translate rituals that reap unspeakable evil around! As opposed to just melting the fucking thing down so it an *never* be used in those rituals.

Xander shouldn't have left it with Giles once he heard what the book was for, he tends to be the common sense one.

You say that knowing what the future holds, they didn't know that.

Review of chapter "Chapter 15" from DieselDriver
Review:
I'm confused by the epilog.
Comments from author:
The ritual was successful and made Drusilla much more powerful. Able to reform herself from her own ashes, which was a power of Dracula, I think. Possibly in the Season 8 comics.

Review of chapter "Chapter 13" from DieselDriver
Review:
Wow! Xander is turning bad? I sure hope it's an act. That would really suck.

Review of chapter "Chapter 11" from DieselDriver
Review:
You fibbed to me. You said Cordy wouldn't get turned. ROFL. This is going to get even more interesting.
Comments from author:
No, I said Xander wouldn't willingly turn her against her will. What happened was an accident. And then it was her choice.

Review of chapter "Chapter 8" from DieselDriver
Review:
Yep, He goes into what they do in the story. And there's shadow squares to simulate day and night etc. Oh and there's sequels. Great stuff.

On to this chapter though, Never bring a stake to a gun fight! With the proper firearm even a 100 pound woman is more than the equal to a PCP ridden madman.
Comments from author:
Guns *are* the great equalizer. Every woman should carry one at all times.

Review of chapter "Chapter 6" from DieselDriver
Review:
Larry Niven, Best Science fiction author since Heinlein. Even put Robert into some of his stories just for kicks. Wrote the "Known Space" series which begins with "World of Ptaavs". I first met him with the short story "Neutron Star". Luis Wu and Teela Brown are featured in "Ringworld".

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ringworld

If you like Hard Science Fiction, his are the best IMHO.
Comments from author:
The Ringworld is unstable!

A ring that big does seem like a bad idea. I don't know how many comets and meteors pass our orbit each year, but only a small number ever hit us simply because we are such a small target on that orbit.

Review of chapter "Chapter 5" from DieselDriver
Review:
No I didn't but it's an interesting thought. And I didn't know about the 25% success rate either. That would be a further impediment.

"Tiger tiger burning bright" is such a good line that everyone overlooks the fact that the last word in the poem REALLY doesn't fit with the rhyme scheme. Nowhere else in the known universe is the word "symmetry" pronounced as though it was spelled "symmetreye" or maybe "symmetrai".

Drusilla seems to be on a role in this one.

Hmmm. Speaking of "The Known Universe" makes me think of "Known Space". Wonder how Xander would have come out had he dressed up as "Gil the ARM". Or maybe "Louis Wu" and Willow as "Teela Brown". Would Willow get "lucky"?
Comments from author:
In Underworld canon, they just said that 'most die within hours of being bitten by an immortal'. Actually, I think the rate I made up was 10% or less. Xander was lying to give Ford false hope.

And I'm sorry, but I don't know any of the characters you mentioned.

Why would Cordy have to accept it except after the fact???
Comments from author:
Do you really think Xander would turn someone if they didn't *want* to be turned?

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from DieselDriver
Review:
Cool premise. Is he also room temperature? don't know anything about the series but sounds interesting.
Comments from author:
You know, I don't know for sure. It seemed like the vampires of Underworld were biologically alive but needed blood to live. They were all pretty pale though.

Review of chapter "Chapter 15" from Blackguard
Review:
This was a great story, sad to see there are no plans for a sequel at the moment.
Comments from author:
Sorry, but my muse has far too many other ideas. But I'm glad you liked it.
