Review of chapter "Spring Break" from TheDoctor
Review:
I absolutely love reading this FF, how you mesh both worlds together works well. Hope to see more of Buffy and Dick together...
Comments from author:
Aw thank you! I've admittedly been busy with life, but you'll (hopefully) see more of their relationship soon, since I've at least planned on extending Spring Break another chapter (and then maybe dealing a little bit with some extra stuff, depending on time/motivation) :)

Review of chapter "Spring Break" from bradsan
Review:
Like what you wrote and can't wait for more. Great job mixing both worlds together and like how you change some things. Can't wait when they see Buffy fight because lets face it she is a really good fighter. Her different fighting styles and mixing while she fights is giving her an advance on her opponent. I always love watching her fighting.

Can't wait what will be next.
Comments from author:
Thanks! I'm glad you're enjoying the story so far, and I'll keep this in mind when I attempt fight scenes in the future. :)

Review of chapter "Spring Break" from LallaBelle
Review:
this was a fun read... but um i'm confused, in the first chapter Buffy kind of found out that Dick is Nightwing, so what's up with the sudden switcharoo of not knowing?

edit: Ah gotcha. Hehe suppose I should've considered that before my review lol. But now that you said it the chapters do make more sense in relation to each other. anyway can't wait to see what you write next. :)
Comments from author:
Basically, the first chapter was intended to be a one-shot (and thus self-contained), but I'd recently decided that this fic deserved more expansion - and thus a bigger insight into how Buffy/Dick came to be. The second chapter's an expansion of the first, and it takes place before the "last part" of the first chapter, so to speak.

I'm sorry I caused some confusion! Hopefully when I'm done, I'll edit that last bit out so it flows better. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Review of chapter "Spring Break" from Starfox
Review:
Good one! Now the last part of the first chapter serves as a sort of epilogue or teaser - any plans to edit that once the story is complete?
Comments from author:
Thanks!

I was thinking about it, yes. I don't know if the last part'll appear in the last chapter, or if I'll flesh out some other event in the first chapter to even it out, but there will (hopefully) be an edit of some kind.

Review of chapter "Spring Break" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Nicely done. Could be expanded just a little more, but basically works. Thanks for sharing.
Comments from author:
Thanks! I'll see what I can do about the next chapter, expansion-wise, since I'm definitely not done with this universe just yet.

Review of chapter "Spring Break" from brokenmimir
Review:
This chapter had much better pacing -- you let events have more time to breathe, and the writing was definitely better for it. Also, kudos for bringing in Shadowpact and the Oblivion Bar -- I love those guys, and they never get mentioned enough.
Comments from author:
Thanks! I'm glad the pacing worked out better here; it's something I struggle with, so I can only hope it gets better from here. I'm also glad you know the Shadowpact! They're one of my favorite teams within the DCU, and I try to bring them up whenever I can - I'm not sure if this'll be the last mention of them in this fic, but I'll definitely be writing about them more in the future.

Review of chapter "Spring Break" from texaswookie
Review:
So, Buffy is suffering from Gotham syndrome? You'd think being on the hellmouth would have her ready for that sort of thing.
Comments from author:
To be fair, she's only been in Gotham for a day or so at this point. I'm sure she'll get over it soon enough ;) (though admittedly I hadn't thought of it that way - I just thought she didn't want to keep Alfred waiting too long.)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from bradsan
Review:
Maybe a story where Buffy goes to Gotham and meets Dick's family.

Love this one.
Comments from author:
Hadn't thought about that at the time, but it seems like it'd be fun to write. Thanks for the review and the suggestion!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from QueenCA
Review:
Thanks for responding to my challenge! :D I really enjoyed reading this. I think you did a good job. :3

I have to agree with the others. I'd like to see this story 'expanded'. I'd like to see more of Buffy and Dick's relationship, her meeting his friends (*I like that you mentioned Wally, but I'd like to 'see' him and the others, if possible*), meeting Bruce and Alfred, etc. I would love to see what would change in the Buffy universe with Dick/Nightwing there. ;)

Keep up the good work!
Comments from author:
I'm glad you enjoyed it! It was a fun challenge, and certainly not one I would've thought about ordinarily. c:

I'll confess, I didn't really have plans to expand upon Buffy/Dick, but I'd certainly like to play around in their universe some more, so you might see those things in the near future. I hadn't thought about her meeting the Gothamites, so that's something to consider too!

I'll definitely try to! Thanks not only for the review, but for also inspiring me to write this!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from brokenmimir
Review:
That was good, but the amount of words versus material covered was far too short. We never even met any of Dick's friends, despite saying that they had several times. It would have been interesting to see Buffy meet Wally for instance. Still, interesting take.
Comments from author:
Looking back on this, I can see where you're coming from! I was more interested in how Dick fit into Buffy's world rather than vice-versa (I was toying with the idea of Dick planning on attending UC Sunnydale for a semester before dropping out/transferring - but Buffy obviously threw a wrench into that) so I hadn't thought much about how she would've affected his. It's a good point and I'm glad you brought it up, so thanks. :)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Starfox
Review:
I second the "worth expanding" review. Good story, flows well and doesn't feel OOC.
Comments from author:
Thanks! I'll definitely think about adding more to this universe sometime. :)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from VillageOrchid
Review:
Worth expanding. Some of this was in depth and some of it was highlights. Even if you only expand on the interpersonal stuff and leave out the episodic stuff. Thanks for sharing.
Comments from author:
I wasn't too keen on rehashing S4 of Buffy since Dick essentially took Parker and Riley's place in the grand scheme of things, but I might revisit the story and expand upon other things that happened during that time. Thanks for the suggestion and the review!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from PhilH
Review:
This was fun, but did feel a bit rushed. I liked Buffy & Dick as a couple. Perhaps it could be extended to several chapters, and continued?
Comments from author:
I agree that it does cover a lot of material and I could've expanded on it! At the moment, I don't have particular plans to make this a multi-chaptered fic but I'd definitely like to re-visit this universe sometime. :) Thanks for the review!
