Review of chapter "Chapter 5" from (Past Donor)FireDragon
I just found this story and I already love it. I had been thinking of writing a story with the history of JC and Asher. I am really looking forward to your next update.

Review of chapter "Chapter 5" from AllenPitt
Nobody in the 18th century French court is going to be shocked by her behavior. That sort of standard is more 19th century Victorian...and even then more for the middle class. But I digress.
4 marks of the vampire + slayer powers, how the heck did the Church forces ever capture her? Must have been a great trap. Hm, there's a painting of Julianna in the 20th, I think, so maybe Anita would recognize her or at least she'd seem familiar if they ever met?

Review of chapter "Chapter 5" from CuzItsGotToBeBlood
I love this so far, it's very original I don't think I've read anything where she is actually Julianna while still being Buffy and having it actually be set in the past.
It's a little fast paced but I can see why you're doing it so its not enough to truly bother me. :)
Probably my only minor peeve is how fast the asher/jean/Buffy relationship is developing, it leaves me wondering her parents opinions on all of it. Still a great story though. :D
I can't wait to see how the story plays out, I assume I'd be right in saying willow and the scoobies will pull her back into her original dimension?

Good luck with your schedule, hope you get some chill time to relax so that inspiration hits!

Review of chapter "Chapter 5" from bradsan
Oh I can't wait for the next update. Reading the reviews and your answer I already know that you have probably the intentions to let Willow pull Buffy back. Ughh I hate when they do that.

I can only hope that you will end the story with a happy Buffy and a still a free JC not in love with Anita. Anita could be his human servant but the love of his life are Buffy and Asher. or Buffy comes back before Anita became his human servant. Well that's what I'm hoping for.

I noticed a reviewer talking about the white skins they had in that particular time. They also used a lot of white powder to their colored skin to make it white or even more white than usual. So if Buffy don't expect to see anyone when wandering around she could leave the powder behind and only use it when she would meet people. Only red heads have an natural white/pale skin most people, not everybody, do have some color in it. So when you wrote the description of her skin-tone I didn't think it was odd. She lives in the countryside so some colour wouldn't be strange. So to me it's not a strange description you used but more a reality thing.

I'm done and "patiently" waiting for the next update.

edit: I forgot and Ashley and JC. jummy

Review of chapter "Chapter 5" from Matron
I liked the flashback, the only down point is that you did not seem to finish a sentence. During Asher's thought process you had a paragraph starting off as "She was either very, very brave or very, very stupid. He was hoping that it was the former. In fact, he had a very distinct feeling that she possessed a bravery that she " and left it off there. Otherwise as a whole the chapter is very satisfying.

Thanks! I will most definitely fix that.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from EasterCat
FYI, unless you're wanting to have Buffy mistaken for a servant, you should be describing her pale, creamy skin. Tanning wasn't fashionable amongst the upper class until the 1940s or 50s.
Comments from author:
That's definitely a good point. My only problem was I can't really picture Buffy pale so since she is atypical with all of the horseback riding and outdoor activities, I thought she would still get something of a glow. It makes her different from the other ladies of the era.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from AllenPitt
And...if she became a human servant her power would be magnified. Not to mention Asher's... so the Julianna story plays out as before, but maybe instead of dying she gets called back by Willow? And then returns in the 20th century? I would like to see her meeting Anita B. & the others in St. L.
Comments from author:
Okay, you are definitely reading my mind or something. I already have plans for some one shots after this as well as a sequel.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from Mistic
An interesting piece no doubt, if somewhat fast paced, you seem somewhat focused on Buffy and Asher though. Not that this is a bad thing but with nothing evolving around them it seems to lesson the romance your trying to force together. Sudden connections are fine but it seems as if you want to jump straight to the shagging bits without an evolution of either character. Neither Buffy nor Asher are perfect and it is usually their imperfections that make them into creations we as the audience can stand behind and marvel. 18th Century life was hard especially in France at the time, this easy revelry you have made of court life seems rather stilted com paired to could play this into your character evolution.

Well now that the nagging is out of the way, your story is quite the change up I don't believe I have seen such a crossover to involve Buffy into Julianna as you have. This intrigues me more than it should I must admit. Thank you for posting as you have feel free to ignore the first paragraph if you wish I tend to involve myself into a story much more than I should. You have done well thus far I hope to see more from you soon. Thank you for the chapter. Good luck, may many review befall upon you and may inspiration smack you with its ever fickle stick. Bye.

I see where you are coming from on the court front. I guess all I can say is there will definitely be some dark times, but Buffy as a noblewoman is at the moment being sheltered from the majority of them. That may change. Thank you so much from reviewing. You gave some really great advice.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from fyretyger
OMFG! I love this story. Buffy starting out as Julianna when she first met Asher is pure originality. I can hardly wait to see what happens through the course of their relationship between each other and with Jean-Claude. Another little part that had me giddy with joy was the additions of Fred and Tara as Buffy's maids. I just know that this is going to be a great story. I can hardly wait to read your next chapter. Keep up the excellent work!!! :)
