Review of chapter "she’s alive—sorta" from Aista
Review:
Love it. Dracula's always great fun, and you wrote him well.
Comments from author:
Thank you! They had an interesting, if generic, take on Dracula. I think he was more interesting in the comics I think. He really just wanted a companion. Poor fella.

Review of chapter "she’s alive—sorta" from (Past Donor)Nuala
Review:
I like this story - Cordelia was awesomely Cordelia! I like how you dealt with the very different vampires and I look forward to reading more. Thanks for writing! :)
Comments from author:
Thank you! I'm rather fond of Cordelia and the humor she can bring to a given situation. :) I always thought of Dracula as a different breed of vampire regardless and this bunny is letting me expand on the concept. Thank you for reading!

Review of chapter "she’s alive—sorta" from Runewolf
Review:
Neat turn of plot. Dracula always did seem a bit too easy...
Comments from author:
Thank you! I've always felt the same way. Dracula was pretty much a let down on BtVS which is a pity really. He's such an interesting and dynamic character usually and the actor portraying him could have pulled off substance if they'd given it to him. Thank you for reading!

Review of chapter "she’s alive—sorta" from HebiR
Review:
I love this chapter. Buffy dealing with her new life/unlife seems very natural. For a given value of natural. I also really like the Buffy/Wesley friendship.
Comments from author:
Thank you! I'm glad you're enjoying it. I think there'll be ups and downs for Buffy and hopefully she survives them all. :) Wesley is growing on me. I hadn't intended him to play this large a role, but Buffy seems to be gravitating most towards him. Thank you for reading!

Review of chapter "she’s alive—sorta" from (Recent Donor)SlayerandWereLeopard
Review:
lol. Nice to see buffy get a little off balance for once like the host made her ;) great update.
Comments from author:
I think Lorne would put anyone off balance. That's his charm. Thank you for reading!

Review of chapter "she’s alive—sorta" from BelleMorte
Review:
Great chapter, love this story, Buffy dealing with her change is perfect, love how it's not all easy but she is finding her way so well.
Comments from author:
Thank you. I think life altering changes should make people stumble, not necessarily fall, but it's going to change them and Buffy's been through a doozie. Hopefully I can maintain the realistic, or as realistic as fantasy can be, aspects of the situation. Thank you for reading!

Review of chapter "she’s alive—sorta" from (Current Donor)Sithspit
Review:
Whoa...props for managing to throw in a Donnie and Marie reference into a Buffy story. I thought I was doing good throwing in Fred Sanford, but that? Nicely done.
Comments from author:
I can see Hank being a fan of them more than Joyce, but they're still relevant enough for Buffy to mention and I couldn't help myself once I involved Lorne. :) Thank you for reading!

Review of chapter "she’s alive—sorta" from bradsan
Review:
Love it so far. Hoping for an Damon/Buffy pairing. Hope they will get Faith out of jail so Buffy don't have to go back to Sunnydale.
Comments from author:
Thank you. I've no plans on a pairing just yet. Buffy still needs to wrap her head around being a vampire and that's what this series of shorts will focus on. Sunnydale will be fun to visit, but no longer her home. The hows and whys that happen are still to come. :) Thank you for reading!

Review of chapter "she’s alive—sorta" from AllenPitt
Review:
I have to wonder what Faith will make of this. Also will the scooby gang try to get her out of jail to help protect Sunnydale. The council might help in that, or want to kill her off to get a new slayer...
For that matter, does Faith suddenly have a sister named Dawn? And most importantly, what will Buffy sing?
Comments from author:
Faith will be somewhere between shock and wariness concerning Buffy, but I can't see the Scoobies being all that willing to bust her out of jail since her last interactions weren't the best. I think the Council would kill her to activate the new Slayer if she's still in jail and a threat to them or other people. These questions and more will be answered as the series progresses. Thank you for reading!

Review of chapter "she’s alive—sorta" from (Past Donor)KieriToews
Review:
Wonderful chapter(?). Looking forward to much more! By chance, will there be an eventual pairing in this?? Enquiring minds wanna know... :-D
Comments from author:
It's meant to be a series of short stories, but this last one did read more like a chapter didn't it? Whoops. Not sure on the pairing aspect for this set of stories but it's not outside the realm of possibility. I'm going into this with an open mind so what happens will happen. Thank you for reading!

Review of chapter "she’s alive—sorta" from RevDorothyL
Review:
Buffy's last line had me picturing her singing a Marie Osmond number (which would still be better than Angel butchering Barry Manilow, of course!), but I guess I'll have to wait until next chapter to find out what she actually DOES choose to sing for Lorne. :)
Comments from author:
Picking a song for Buffy to sing is actually taking longer than anything else in this story. I've been contemplating it since before I started writing this series. I think SMG has a decent voice. It's nothing to write home about, but she can carry a tune and David really can't. ;) Thank you for reading!

Review of chapter "A Dying Slayer" from HebiR
Review:
I love the way the Fang Gang just embraces Buffy. I do wonder if there was any last contact with Joyce, what Riley did, what Spike thought, if Willow and Xander disagreed with Giles, and what comments Anya made.
I'd also love to know how Elijah (and/or the Mystic Falls group) will react should Buffy recall him as the "good" vampire from Angel's story.
Comments from author:
Embrace is a strong word to use for Cordelia. ;) There will be some Scooby interaction in the next story, but I doubt Spike will be mentioned since at the beginning of season 5 he was still pretty much just a tolerated nuisance and at times enemy. Though I think he'd be highly amused at the thought of her being turned at this point in the series.

Elijah and most Mystic Falls characters are in the distance future of this series, but their time will come. Thank you for reading!

Comments from author:
Thank you and hopefully you'll continue to like it as the series progresses. These series of shorts will probably not freature a pairing right away and I don't have a set one in mind. Though Damon won't be showing up anytime soon (about ten years time).

Thank you for reading!

Review of chapter "A Dying Slayer" from kittenpoker
Review:
I love this 'verse!! I saw this ficlet on livejournal, but I am extraordinarily bad at making livejournal do what I want, so even if tracking updates was an option if have no earthly idea how to go about it. I'm so glad you put it up here - now I can tell you I love it and(!!!) track it. Fabulous.
Comments from author:
Thank you! I'm not entirely sure how to track on LJ either. I'm sure there's a way but I usually just resort to 'friending' people and checking their feeds periodically. Glad I could be of service in making tracking easier. :)

Thank you for reading!

Review of chapter "A Dying Slayer" from randyzoopurple
Review:
is their a least chance for a Damon and Buffy parring
Comments from author:
There's a chance, but I make no promises since there'll be 10 years to cover before she'd even meet Damon. I try to not go into series/long stories with a set pairing in mind.
