Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Harry
Review:
Interesting take on the story. And I had no problem with Kennedy biting the dust. Girl just seemed to want to be in charge, instead of waiting her turn.
Comments from author:
It's one possibility.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from ChefJackButler
Review:
Interesting premise. Very interesting. You said, "Read a story where Xander kept a piece of the Slayer with him along with Hyena and Soldier. This was the result of my musings on that." Do you happen to remember which story that was? I think I'd like to read it.

Again, I have to say that you're proving to be one of my favorite writers here. Very good job.

Xander actually has 4 possessions and is in an unmagical world where the possessions are sucking the strength out of him. It has nothing to do with my story at all. Just gave me the bunny.

And thank you for calling me one of your favorites. As you know, it's always awesome to have new fans.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from kaleecat
Review:
This idea of what could have been makes a lot of sense. I've always been if the theory that Buffy rising from the dead as a slayer was an aberration & a remnant otherwise a second slayer would've been called after she died again.
Comments from author:
Thank you. Though perhaps my idea only makes sense because canon makes no sense?

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)KColl
Review:
You're right of course, the spell was dumb as all hell for a number of reasons:-

1. It was shown in a previous episode to be forcing the first Slayer against her Will, yet Buffy had no problem doing it to girls worldwide.
2. If you're going to do it, do it beforehand so you know it works.
3. Buffy had other potential allies (Angel, Initiative etc.), why not call on them?
4. Why not look into filling the Hellmouth with explosives or concrete to prevent
the Army from getting out?
5. Buffy struggles with one Uber-Vamp, but suddenly rookie Slayers are killing
them by the dozen?
6. How are the Upper Powers going to react to such a violent re-scaling
of the balance between good and evil?
7. How many Danas or Faiths or criminal Slayers were created?

Yeah, a mess of an episode, heavy on symbolism, utterly lacking in the logic.
Comments from author:
1. Yeah, that was horrible.
2. exactly.
3. Possibly, she just wanted to go down swinging.
4. too logical. Not angsty enough.

5. I like to think that Buffy had trouble with one Uber-vamp but the minis were better than her because the spell didn't use her as the focus. Remember, she was no longer part of the Slayer Line. Faith was the Slayer. The spell gave them Faith's strength and they were able to trash those super-vamps like they were nothing.

6. Bah!
7. There is only one Faith!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from SilverWave
Review:
heh nice to see someone have the guts to really go all out on a AU thread :-)

Love it.

Cheers.
Comments from author:
All out? I think this was still pretty mild compared to what could have happened.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Recent Donor)Hawklan
Review:

tx for sharing
Comments from author:
Shame about everyone. They lost a lot of girls because the spell worked ALMOST right.

Thank you for commenting.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from potterinu
Review:
Xander seems a bit overly cheery in this.
Comments from author:
The great thing about being a Slayer, Slaying is comfort food.

Also. This is only a 1,000 word blurb. Not enough room for deep thoughts and introspection.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from CPTSkip
Review:
Yes, while dramatic as hell, waiting to activate the spell until the last minute was just stupid. But then again, it was perfect TV logic. Nice dark story.
Comments from author:
Yeah. But I like to shoot holes in TV logic at every opportunity.

Review:
Interesting idea. would love to read that story you mentioned... Yes, always thought they should have done the spell before.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from kaleecat
Review:
An entirely novel approach to the spell results. I like it as the potential for chaos is great. Tho willow with her magic and slqyer powers is scary. And I agree waiting to do the spell once in the cavern was stupid but dramatic.
Comments from author:
I like the fact that there are possibly 4 Slayer lines. The one that ran through Faith now runs through Vi. But what about the others? I don't even know.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from SpaceAnJL
Review:
Is it bad that that first bit made me laugh? "Here, catch...oh, crap"

Also, you killed Faith and left Dawn alive? Shame. But I have so many issues with BtVS from S3 onwards, it isn't funny... I know, Rule of Drama, and all that, but really, so many decisions were just plain stupid.
Comments from author:
No, that's not bad at all. It makes me laugh too.

And if you rewatch the big fight, when Buffy goes down, Faith stops fighting and goes to her side. She should have died there with Buffy. In my story, they did.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from RedCalypso
Review:
A very interesting take on the matter. And I totally agree! What kind of planning is it to do the spell AFTER your troops are in place??? The spell should have been cast FIRST, then they could go down. *rolls eyes*
Comments from author:
Very *dramatic* planning.
