Review of chapter "Chapter Ten" from (Current Donor)Listener
This was a really fun story. You nailed all the characters well, and you kept it complex enough that Sherlock was believable.

There are only a few recurring villains that can be used. You picked Amy. I think I needed a little more backstory to really buy into her being so powerful. Also, the whole Sherpocalypse seemed a bit much.

Overall good. I had fun reading. I'd like to see sequels, if you'd like to write them.
Comments from author:
I know that the Sherpocalypse (great word, can I use that?) was a bit over the top. As I said, I didn't really expect it to go where it went. But it seemed to work out okay.

As for why Amy was so powerful, I'm sure I mentioned that she absorbed the Hellmouth's power. Which is why when it collapsed the world didn't end. I could've expanded that, I suppose. It'll come up in the sequel. Which I will probably start fairly soon.

Thanks for reviewing.

Review of chapter "Chapter Ten" from Misty
Cool, different, I liked. Thank you & one question: Is there more ie a series or is it a one-off? Either way I'll be happy but just thought I'd check.
Comments from author:
Yes, there's going to be a sequel. It might take me a while to get around to starting it because I've got a few other stories on the go, but I'll get around to it sooner or later. Thanks for reviewing.

Review of chapter "Chapter Ten" from AllenPitt
Congrats, didn't think you could come back from blowing up London et al. Of course vampires can reproduce very fast, so their numbers will recover over time, but the council should be able to make some real strides in the meantime. And Moriarty should have fun with the supernatural.
Dawn with green eyes is weird, have to admit. But it's a small price to pay and all that stuff.
Comments from author:
Yes, vampires could do that, but that's not where I'm planning on going. And even though they do reproduce quickly, there won't be near the same amount as there was from their thousands and thousands of years of reproducing, so they won't be threat for a long time. But that's okay, 'cause I know what the threat in the sequel is going to be.

I like green eyes. Call it author appeal...

Anyway, yes, Moriarty will be a big player in the sequel.

Thanks for reviewing!

Review of chapter "Chapter Ten" from fanreaderonetwo
Interesting story, but your spelling could use some work, for example Professor Moriarty's name is spelled Moriarty. Most of your miss-spells would be caught by spell check.
Comments from author:
You know, I looked at the way I spelled it and thought I looked wrong, but I just couldn't figure out how. Anyway, it's fixed now, and I'll go back and fix as many other typos as I can catch. Thanks for reviewing.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eight" from incubuschained
Truly enjoying this fic, I can't help but picture a meeting between Watson and Xander as the story progresses. Please tell me you have that planned.
Comments from author:
I haven't got that planned, no. But then again, this story has gone so massively far from where I had originally planned it to go that anything is possible. Even as I am writing this, an idea to bring that about has just exploded in my head.

I'm glad you like the story, and thank you for the recommendation.

Review of chapter "Chapter Seven" from PATM
Interesting development. Time for an Amy intervention stat. Sherlock doesn't need to be any kind of demon to be brilliant. His crystal palace and Willows description of a labyrinth protection his secrets is fun stuff to read.

Review of chapter "Chapter Seven" from AllenPitt
I was thinking the First was back, now it does look like a 'possessing entity'. One that Willow can't detect even when it does it to her? Yeesh. I wonder why it took Kennedy out? Just to punish? Or maybe there's more to it than that?
Comments from author:
All will be revealed.

Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from AllenPitt
yikes, Willow is schizo with a dark side? Or possessed, maybe. Meanwhile, I'm surprised at Sherlock, he's making theories without all the facts. Heaven / Hell is a Christian idea...the slayer-verse is more based on H.P. Lovecraft. there are "hell dimensions" as in plural, stuff like that.Lots of powerful groups trying to take over, but no ultimate good or evil. And all that stuff. I can see why he'd think that, though.
Anyway (not that it matters for the story). My guess is, the new Council has a Problem on its hands. . And it hits their major weakness. They have Willow as their magical heavy hitter, but they don't really have anyone else in that category. THey really need to develop more magic user assets, and not have all their eggs in one basket. So to speak....... "Devon Coven" is one possible resource, maybe?

Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from (Past Donor)DonSample
The existence of the Abrahamic God, or any other sort of god, does not necessarily follow from the existence of souls, heaven, or hell, and Buffy herself doesn't claim to have any answer for whether God is real, or not:

(From "Conversations with Dead People":
Holden. “Does he exist? Is there word on that, by the way?”
Buffy “Nothing solid.” )

People believed in souls and an afterlife long before some middle eastern sheep herder decided that there had to be just one big kahuna God running the whole show. The Egyptians, the Greeks, the Aztecs and Mayans all had their own belief systems with various sorts of afterlife, and with gods that had greater or lesser influences over the lives of people.

Review of chapter "Chapter Five" from burmafrdnow
Should have had Faith pick up Sherlock with her pinky finger and suspend him. Then Willow levitate him around the room. Would have probably have been more effective.
Comments from author:
Perhaps, but, as I said in the chapter, Willow's reluctant to use magic around Sherlock until she knows more about him. Also, I didn't particularly want Faith to bounce Sherlock off the walls. So Illyria was the simplest method.

Review of chapter "Chapter Five" from dorkmoon
For Sherlock (and Moriarty), one of biggest hurdles to overcome isn’t the existence of magic, vampires, or demons, but proof that you do indeed have a soul. Granted, having a soul doesn’t mean you good or nice, but the fact that it exists is a huge revelation as is ‘post-mortem human consciousness’ i.e. ghosts and an Afterlife.

“Bugger, does this mean I have to start going to Church to save my soul from damnation?”

Cumberbatch’s Sherlock once referred to himself as a high-functioning sociopath (taking insult at being called a ‘psychopath’), which is characterized by apathy and/or a disregard for social norms. The fact that an Afterlife exists implies that Sherlock will be judged by some unknown criteria, although I doubt he’d care or bother to change his behavior.

Or, for the sake of humor, someone could mention the 'Like A Badass Out of Hell' trope and say that if Sherlock was sent to Hell, he'd either break own, take over, or get kicked out.

'Cosmic keystone' quote that could be used to describe the Seed of Wonder: "Who designed this campaign setting? Why would you include four points of such catastrophic weakness that tampering with any of them results in the destruction of the global ecosystem? It makes no sense! A kind and loving creator would never have done this, and a cruel one would simply have made the air out of acid. And it wouldn't have evolved on its own, as there's no advantage to living in a world poised on the brink of annihilation!" =Red Mage from 8-Bit Theater.
Comments from author:
I have a scene planned in the next chapter that deals with Sherlock and John dealing with the implications of what they've just seen. I didn't do it this chapter because, firstly, John's first reaction is "Oh god, demons etc" whereas Sherlock's is more "Demons. How fascinating." I don't think either of them would dive into the metaphysical right away. That's my interpretation, in any case.

As for a God... well, I can't really imagine anyone from Buffy believing in a god of any kind (other than Hecate or gods like that), especially after the First. I might write a discussion between Sherlock, John and someone in Buffy about that kind of thing (probably with Illyria). I haven't decided yet.
