Review of chapter "Maggots and Magic Missiles" from hamishog
Review:
Okay, I'm intrigued.
I've never been a big fan of the Watcher's Council anyway because there's something wrong with anybody who bases a board of directors off one little girl fighting evil. So I'm quite willing to consider them as villains, especially as it is becoming clear that some of them aren't. And I like the group dynamic with the folks from the Gate. Still, it's the potential rather than the actual that makes them interesting. And it's easy to see that you at least are taking the high ground with Cordelia and the Cordettes. Harmony is nowhere near the stereotype she usually appears to be (although to be fair the actress playing her got quite of bit of work out of the character). Willow and Xander have always been favorites of mine so I am always interested in their interaction. So, I guess I'll be back. See ya.
Comments from author:
The Watchers' Council started of as good guys in my book, if a bit hide-bound. Then came the Cruciamentum and various other things and really, I couldn't call them good guys anymore, just hidebound and stupid. Even if they can't go toe to toe with vampires, their support system seems massively skewed towards the status quo for the Watchers.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Maggots and Magic Missiles" from JoeDineen
Review:
Delighted to see another update and would encourage the dropping of nondtantard grammer to denote thoughts and such. There is no need for it, you can manage without it.
I look forward to Eric's conversation with Cordelia.
Comments from author:
In this story the trouble is all the telepathy between the characters and their internal guests.

Review of chapter "Maggots and Magic Missiles" from TroyGuffey
Review:
So loving this story!

Yeah, too bad they didn't have a SMALL fireball for Norman.

I think that there is a new tutor in the violent arts in Giles' closet. Order Patrice to train her students to the best of her ability as her own apprentices expected to become masters of disaster. To be civil and not to even think of them badly. (Conditioning) Light Side Apprentices (expected not to try to kill the master)

I'm guessing that the new casting classes are Level 1 (I hate leveled RPGs (although I will play them if nothing better is available) even though their possessors were higher. As for loot, some of it might be in the form of things they don't want to do, like skin the dead guys, extract salable organs, etc. (GP in loot as condensed actions) Maybe collect bounties?

Yeah, the WC is fulla a-holes.
Comments from author:
It would have been nice, but all the Commoners would have died too...

The power doensn't extend that far, I fear. Having a murderer on a leash is still very dangerous...

The inner D&D'ers are going to be a trifle upset by the lack of loot. None of them were very powerful, in game you can get to Dynaheir and free her at second/third level.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Maggots and Magic Missiles" from Starfox
Review:
Good chapter. I wonder what will happen when the two D&D Partys - or members thereof - meet up. Poor Giles.
Comments from author:
Thanks. The little ones will be deeply awed, even Jaheira, who has seen portraits of them...

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Maggots and Magic Missiles" from starwolf
Review:
yeah, Giles needs to decide real fast whose side he's on. I like this version of Joyce.
great chapter, thanks
Comments from author:
Indeed. A bit earlier than in canon, before things get out of hand... Joyce and Éowyn are a winning team, I'd say.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Maggots and Magic Missiles" from (Current Donor)Truthmaker
Review:
I'd say poor Giles but I'm not sure he's not getting anything his organization doesn't deserve. Too bad he can't reach out to Dr. Dormer to try and get himself back in Faith's (and therefore Joyce's) good graces but I think that avenue has been cut off by the council as well.

And I'm becoming quite intrigued by the little "D&D group" that's forming outside the library. If it's anything like the groups I've played in in the past they are going to be quite unhappy about the distinct lack of loot upon completion of their quest.
Comments from author:
I was never entirely sure if the lower echelon Watchers even knew where the others lived or conteacted them unless on extremis (like Kendra showing up in Sunnydale)

LEWT!! There's going to be trouble with some members, yes...

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Maggots and Magic Missiles" from wonderbee
Review:
Great section, and really enjoyed the interrogation of Patrice, and some uncomfortable stuff coming out that Giles wouldn't have wanted to see happen, as well as the girls and gang get ready to set foot into danger again, just hope that the danger is less prepared than they will be.
Comments from author:
Yes, I was unsure how hard I should be on the watchers, (and Giles) but after making a list of their actions, well...

As for the girls and danger, well, danger might as well be Faith's middle name.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Wow, great story. Well paced with an interesting plot and enough AU twists to keep me guessing.

Review of chapter "Masters and Madmen" from Starfox
Review:
Very good chapter - Humor, Action, and Drama. Loved Dawn's antics, and Cordelia as her babysitter was great fun. Same for Willow meeting Faith. Patrice getting interrogated after Faith told Buffy about the darker side of the Watchers has a lot of potenial too. And Spike is great with DuLac.
Comments from author:
Thank you. Ten year old Dawn is wonderfully liberating to write (Hence I include her so often in my work) Poor Cordelia, her first job ever and baptised in the fires of the sun.

I'm taking a lot of time to deal with these two episodes. I hope that I can speed things up soon with the next episodes and arcs.

Glad you like the gruesome twosome.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Woo Hoo!!! 3 active slayers and new (to me) people with magic abilities. Extremely cool so far.

Thanks. I was (and am) quite fond of the Dungeons and Dragons cartoon.

Review of chapter "Masters and Madmen" from Cordyfan
Review:
A great chapter, with a lot going on.

DuLac has the makings of a very interesting and potentially dangerous Big Bad, even in the absence of Spike and Drusilla.

Cordelia sitting Dawn was really funny - she didn't have a clue what she was letting herself in for, either with Dawn or the Bug Man. Good to see that she has a healthy fear of both Joyce and Buffy (though she'd probably never admit to the latter).

This Angel seems even more stupid than the canon version, if that's possible.

Looking forward to seeing how things work out with Patrice.

Thanks for writing this.
Comments from author:
Thanks. DuLac is a mad scientist. They're wonderful as Big Bads.

Poor Cordelia, scarred for life. And with the elder Summerses after her, scared for life too...

Angel does tend to show overconfidence whiledealing with Spike I noticed.

Well, Joyce is going to take her on a date and there probably will be kissing involved. ;-)

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Masters and Madmen" from (Current Donor)Truthmaker
Review:
Had to go back and re-read this since it's been a few months and I once again must say that I love this crossover. The D&D cartoon was a staple of my childhood and you've done the characters proud with this work. I also like the way you've handled the passengers, it's a really cool take on the after effects of Halloween.

Having Cordelia babysit Dawnie was just too cute as well. Were you planning on having Patrice revealed as a former potential to Buffy & Faith? No doubt Travers and the Council will just love that little tidbit of information being released.
Comments from author:
yeah, sorry about that. I was planning to update earlier, but I have too many stories and too little time to update them all as often as I'd like. I may have to bring some of them to an end or put them on hiatus and concentrate on fewer.

I'm glad you like the way I depict the characters. I love the cartoon as well. (DVD's yay!) I've never read quite a Halloween consequences fic where this happened, but I've probably not read all of them.

Yes, Cordelia rather underestimated that...

They'll question her and no doubt she'll try and put a spanner in the works between Slayer and Watcher, expecting to be killed by Giles anyway.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Masters and Madmen" from bookworm
Review:
Ha, they do make a fun pair, don't they? Hopefully Buffy and co. still manage to hold their own, though.
Comments from author:
They are amazingly fun to write. They have a limited goal so we'll see what the Scoobies manage to do.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "Knight in shining armour" from Oxnate
Review:
Rereading first chapters. -- “S-Santa Claus gave it to me,” she confessed. -- Should probably be Father Christmas as both she and Spike are British.
Comments from author:
You're quite correct, it should be. Seeing as you re-read it, I assume you enjoyed it, too. ;-)

Thanks and thanks for reviewing
