Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from (Recent Donor)DeepBlueJoy
Review:
Speaking of great lines....

Not so much B’Trak and more like an Amtrak...


Priceless. (Though, I'd point out that Amtrak is a passenger line, not a freight line).

Once again, a great chapter... poor Cordelia and her lovely gay gentleman... At this point, she's still looking for the marriage solution to her financial misfortunes... poor Cordy!

Comments from author:
Thanks for the review - glad you enjoyed it.

I've fixed the freight train thing.

Cordy is changing, but parts of the old Queen C are still hanging around and she's still quite willing to marry her way out of trouble. It'll take a completely new career to completely change her values...

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from Inoeth
Review:
You outdo yourself once again. I'm fully enjoying the character-building you're doing with Cordy, and that last scene with Buffy... damn. I look forward to seeing how you end this saga and can't wait for the next chapter in the 'main story'.
Comments from author:
Lots more character building to go with Cordy and, of course, with this being a prequel, really not so much of a cliffie with Buffy. I'm currently working on a chapter of FLP.

Thanks for the review - glad you're still enjoying it.

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from timepiece
Review:
A callout to my hometown, awesome! Although the Newport News shipyard only builds military ships, AFAIK.
Comments from author:
I think it does only build military vessels, but I couldn't find a US builder of luxury liners, so this one is pure author's licence.

Thanks for the review.

But thank you for the update, I really did very much enjoy this chapter until the end!
Comments from author:
Not much of a cliffy.

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from DarthTenebrus
Review:
Hmmm...

Somebody's been reading "1984" lately. ..or my crossover...which one, I wonder?
Comments from author:
Neither, actually (haven't read 1984 since I was at secondary school, over 30 years ago, though I do remember the rhyme/song used there). It just seemed like a suitably Drusilla thing.

Thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Chapter Seven" from DieselDriver
Review:
Drusilla wants fire
Forgets she's not fire proof too
Silly vampire torch

Bwaaahahahahahahahaha!!!
Comments from author:
Whoever expected logic from Drusilla? She didn't stop to think what would happen if the Judge killed everyone on Earth (no more food) or that she'd be sucked into a fiery Hell with everything else when Acathla awoke...

Thanks for the second rhyming review!

Review of chapter "Chapter Seven" from DieselDriver
Review:
Naw, I did that already. Strained my brain on the last one. Anyway, this isn't a review it's a comment so it's exempt. I noticed this phrase:

"Or hog the duvet"

I'd like to point out that I didn't even know of the word "duvet" before starting to read some of the stuff on this site and on Maddy Bell's site. Being that I speak American, not English at all, you can guess why. I looked it up but still am not clear on how to use one. To me, a bed, properly made up has a mattress cover, a fitted sheet, a plain sheet then any blankets and maybe a bedspread although I've given up all on that bother and now sleep between 2 sleeping bags. And NO, not two women asleep.
Comments from author:
They're sometimes called 'quilts' over this side of the pond. Not sure if that's the term used in the US. Generally, we use a fitted sheet over the mattress, then duvet/quilt on top (nd maybe a cover on top of that if it's really cold)

Review of chapter "Chapter Six" from DieselDriver
Review:
"comparing beast sizes"

From in this chapter
Provoked much laughter

If you like the Limericks
I'm sure to get in my licks

Haiku are hard to do
Now my brain is in a stew

So poetry is what you get
I'm stopping now with this set.
Comments from author:
Sorry - can't rhyme worth a damn, so you just get a non-rhyming reply.

"Beast sizes" - the mind boggles... I must have missed that one.

Thanks for the review - glad you're enjoying it.

Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from DieselDriver
Review:
She should have scavenged every bit of equipment, weapons etc. that they were carrying. Show it to Giles when he gets back and have him exclaim that it's not council equipment, but instead is U.S. Government equipment. He would know this due to earlier clandestine things he'd done...

I have to wonder just what you have in store for "B" and "C" and "H"... Judy is keeping Harmony alive and I just can't see Judy surviving this story. Harmony is a different matter. Actually smarter as a vampire than before but it sounds like she still has her soul if she's dreaming about her dogs. Somehow I just can't see a demon doing that.
Comments from author:
Not sure that Giles would have recognised it as US government equipment, given the clandestine, high-tech and experimental nature of the Initiative.

Judy? You might be right... Harmony? A vampire has the memories of its host body, so no reason why she shouldn't have some of these enter her dreams. And vampire Harmony was never so much different from living Harmony (just as Spike was different from some vampires, even unchipped).

Thanks for the review

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from DieselDriver
Review:
This meeting should prove educational for both of them. Also sure puts Riley in a different category than any I've seen him in before.
Comments from author:
if you're referring to Cordy and Buffy, then it'll be a real eye-opener for both of the. Riley is definitely one of the bad guys here and the Initiative is a much more evil organisation than the canon version.

Thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eight" from (Current Donor)vidicon
Review:
Ah, the crazy train is coming to town. Has arrived really. Detective Stein is becoming a half-way decent human being again. Willy is showing why we all love and admire him, and come back for his cooking.

And Cordelia is letting slip all those little things and eventually they'll connect the dots...

But knowing the future, it will be too late.

Thanks for writing
Comments from author:
The crazy train hasn't just come to town - it's jumped the barriers... Detective Stein and Buffy are still a long way from exchanging Christmas cards. Willy? He never changes.

Cordelia is, indeed, a much more complex individual than anyone at this point would have guessed.

And yes, it will be too late for many things (for a while, not indefinitely).

Thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eight" from (Current Donor)Sulien
Review:
Don't recall if I've said so yet or not, but I'm also very much enjoying this prequel. It's nice to see the way Cordy started changing the summer after their graduation. Thanks kindly for writing and sharing this!
Comments from author:
It's supposed to be a gradual change - hope that's coming across.

Thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Chapter Eight" from Inoeth
Review:
Another great update. The whole Buffy and Cordy sleeping together in the same bed could be misconstrued by someone (given that at this time, they don't know they're sisters...) but then again, my sister does that with her friends all the time, so that's probably just my warped mind :)

I really liked how, in that ironic (and yet, also purposeful) way, Riley and the Innitiative saved Buffy, Cordy and her mom from the Bosnian war criminals and that sociopathic doctor.

I am certainly curious as to how the battle with Drusilla will play out (and wouldn't it be real interesting if in the end, they never actually find each other and fight...)

And, having finally found the time to read this, i see you've also just updated Fates plaything 2 again. Made my day. thanks for all the good work.
Comments from author:
They aren't sleeping together through choice - might have to make that clearer.

Riley and Co have their own agenda and Prof John may yet pop up again (slightly different...)

Dru will live to fight again, but I haven't decided whether or not to have them fight.

Thanks for the review - glad you enjoyed it.
