Review of chapter "Kicking Ass & Taking Names" from oldgirllost
Just reread this tonight. Would very much like to see more of it, especially to get to the reveal to Giles part.

Anyhow it's one of the better Highlander/BTVS crosses.

Merry Christmas!

Review of chapter "Knowledge, Skills & Strategy" from ChaosKitsune
Maybe the next thing you should look into is weapons in particular. Bows and Spears are something that he would have picked up in Africa. Guns are a problem. They never explained it in the show other that guns are bad and that they are ineffective. Darla tore Angel so many new holes with her twin pistols. A Hunter using guns will kick but for a while. Suddenly the inept police will not be so inept, and hunt them down. Demons already have a sort of black market going. Its not that hard to get a hold of guns. I think that's when the Watchers activate the wet-work team and purge the area.

Also silver works on werewolves. Blessed silver would work on vampires. It's expensive, makes a horrible weapon and ammunition, and is hard to work with. So the alternative is lots of blessed stakes or wooden throwing daggers. Remember that a stake is a farming tool. They are easy to make and can be used as an improvised weapon but they are not meant to be weapons. Maybe it would be best to make a different versions like a spear, a triangular throwing dagger, a wooden brace. He could douse all his close and drink holy water. Maybe he should were a cross and Willow the star of David.

As a power-gamer I'd see about messing with aspect of the demon and purification rituals. But with a living Hellmouth enhancing negative aspects I think all a novice would be able to do is blunt the Hellmouth interference. It would take a lot of work to purify it but it can be done off of the Hellmouth in a Church, filled with crosses and the book of DuLac at his side if you're dealing with vampire dust. Too much work for too little effort.

Review of chapter "Kicking Ass & Taking Names" from MagnusXXN
Would very much like to see this continued. Interesting concept, good ideas, and an over all new take on things. Can't wait to read more. See what actually happens when he puts his ideas into place.

Review of chapter "Kicking Ass & Taking Names" from (Current Donor)cameocat
This is a very interesting story and I very much want to see where it goes. Right now there is little action, but much - very much - interesting insight into character and motivation. I do so want to see how Xander puts all this into action. The author is setting out a really good premise, and this story could become a series all its own, an interesting AU that grows from the advice and insights Xander has gained. Of course, it could backfire, too... though I hope not. There's enough dark and morose in fanfic. I prefer dark and hopeful, if dark there must be.

Also, for a story that could easily be dull, the author has done a great job of making the conversation come alive. The character actions and reactions, the movements and behaviors, the subtle differences between Xander now and Xander's future self are all true to the series and very well done.

Review of chapter "Kicking Ass & Taking Names" from irishamber
I'm really enjoying this story. Nothing much is happening so far and yet it's oddly captivating. I'm looking forward to seeing (1) xander'sbconversation with Giles (2) how Xander goes about making money (3) his conversation with willow about her sisterlyness and her clothing. So many things he's given himself the heads up on. It makes me want to know how it takes and what changes in Xander's future...does he still lose his eye, does he live longer or die younger, does Buffy still die and does willow still resurrect her, does gile break the geas earlier and what effect that has.

Thanks for sharing!

Review of chapter "Kicking Ass & Taking Names" from Fayari
This is really very... wordy.

Nothing is actually happening. This fic is eight chapters in, yet there has still only been one scene, Xander gives Xander advice. Yeah, the advice is good, and the theories on why the characters act the way they do are solid and believable. But this fic has fallen into the "Tell, not show" trap instead of the "Show, not tell" principle that good writing should follow.

Please, get on with the show. This seems like it could be a really good fic.

Review of chapter "Kicking Ass & Taking Names" from VillageOrchid
Again, I don't think at this point you need to dramatize the list of major baddies being told to Xander, since he has gotten to the note-taking portion. I would like to see you dramatize Xander talking to Giles about geas and training.

Review of chapter "Knowledge, Skills & Strategy" from VillageOrchid
Yes, it really is a lot of information and time to write up some lists.

Review of chapter "Goofy Gofer vs Wise Warrior" from VillageOrchid
I'm liking this and hoping you will go beyond "the visit." A few chapters were good, now I am wondering when Xander will actually get to do stuff.

Review of chapter "The Downward Spiral" from VillageOrchid
I suppose his father would appreciate Xander "manning up" by taking a job in addition to school. Good insights, plausible situation regarding the hellmouth effecting everyone.

Review of chapter "Urban Guerilla Fashion Tips" from VillageOrchid
I have only read the first 2 chapters, but I like that the advice part is being dramatized, thought about and taking more than one chapter.
