Review of chapter "Chapter One" from BuffyKaibaHunt
Review:
Great start for a first chapter. Very awesome, as well as very well-written, too. :) I like it, especially this part:

Now he needed a place to stay. Returning home wasn’t really an option. Wells couldn’t handle another round of lectures from parents, about how he needed to find a job and stop wasting his life. In addition, there was his little brother, Andrew. The kid might be showing some promise in demonology, but the constant movie references were practically unbearable after any length of time. Andrew just didn’t seem to recognise where his precious fantasy and sci-fi ended and real life began, and that older kid he’d started hanging with wasn’t helping matters. Maybe it was time to have a word with Warren Mears…

Wells shook his head. Making sure Andrew didn’t sink any further into the depths of nerddom was a job for his parents. Revenge, pure and simple, had to be his first and only concern, at least until Buffy Summers was six feet under.

Very neat, as well as very inspiring... :)
Keep up your super-neat, very beautiful and creatively phenomenal writing! :)

Tucker Wells? Ah yes, the next big-bad of Sunnydale, in his own mind at least...

Thanks for the review, glad you enjoyed it.

Review of chapter "Chapter Ten" from LaraBr
Review:
Seriously enjoyed reading this story and I can't wait for more.

One of the things I liked about this is the way it could so easily veer off from the main story series and yet remaining true to 'Making the Quota'.

You have got both Buffy and Cordelia spot on and how they would interact under these circumstances.

In short it's flippin' brilliant.
Comments from author:
Thanks for your kind review.

It's actually been quite tricky making sure that I kept this compatible with the sequels and I may have tinker slightly with 'Making the Quota' and the first few chapters of 'Someone Else's Mess', just to make sure that it stays tue to the series.

Glad you're enjoying it.

Review of chapter "Chapter Ten" from Inoeth
Review:
Great update. The side story with Harmony is amusing, tho I don't see it actually adding all that much to the story beyond a bit of dark comedy.

I do really like how you brought in Clem and the idea of a 'green area' of Sunnydale- and i'll be curious to see how that plays out in the current timeline story.

Keep up the great work. I look forward to the next update in any of the three stories in this series.
Comments from author:
At the very least, I want to show how Harmony met Spike.

Clem won't be a regular at this point, but the green area might crop up in a later story.

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

Review of chapter "Chapter Ten" from (Current Donor)SamuraiCatFan
Review:
Great stuff. Still enjoying every chapter of this entire series (even if I don't log in much these days and thus don't tell you after every chapter).

Wonder how long before Cordy finally comes clean about how badly her parents screwed her over.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review - glad you're still enjoying it.

Cordy won't come clean for a while yet, I'm afraid.

Review of chapter "Chapter Ten" from (Current Donor)Sulien
Review:
Hmmm... Your mention of those green oases protected by good magic made me think of the woman who was protecting the Slayer's Scythe. I hope you decide to incorporate them at some point in this series, as I'd love to see what history you would give them (Joss never gave us anything in the series and I haven't read the comics, if there's anything there). Also, it was nice to see Clem.

Thanks kindly for the update. :)
Comments from author:
I hadn't even thought about tying the oases of good magic to the Guardians - I may just do that. They'll show up at some point, in any case. Clem will continue to appear from time to time, both here and in later stories.

Thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Chapter Ten" from grd
Review:
Awesome chapter. Your characterization is sooo good, I almost hope Judy survives to meet Cordy in the future. Hope Joyce gets an inkling about Cordy's real status. Looking forward to more. Thank you.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review - glad you enjoyed it. I'm afraid there has to be some reason that Harmony is driven towards Spike, so things are bleak for Judy... And Judy is unlikely to meet Cordy, either. Joyce may have a slight inkling, but she won't find out fully until much later.

Review of chapter "Chapter Ten" from ShalaDakiri
Review:
Ouch. Good to see Buffy's survival (even knowing her death would completely invalidate the later stories).

Interesting little tidbit about the good places/sanctuaries. And Clem is always a fun addition.
Comments from author:
It stands to reason that occasionally she'll just escape by the skin of her teeth.

I'll probably return to the sanctuary idea later on in this story and possibly later ones in the series, too. Clem might not be a regular, but he'll pop up from time to time.

Thanks for the review

Review of chapter "Chapter Ten" from (Current Donor)vidicon
Review:
Well it seemed that Buffy was forced to bite off more than she could chew. Cordelia is right, she's lucky to have the healing Mojo. A nice meeting with Clem, who might turn into a useful contact as well as a babysitter... Joyce would probbaly invite him to dinner to thank him. If he didn't eat kittens...


Dear Maggy, doing her best to better the human race.

Thanks for writing
Comments from author:
Well, she can't win them all, but the Slayer healing at least gives her a fighting chance when she's outmatched. Clem might be a good contact from time to time - no babysitting role as yet for him. None of them know about the kittens as yet. I can almost hear the horrified 'eeuuwwws'.

If Maggie wants to help better the human race, she could start by throwing herself into a wood-chipper...

Thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from grd
Review:
Another great chapter. Enjoyed and savored. Despite knowing this is a story in the past, it still grabs and holds our attention. Well done. Hope you have some of the characters make an appearance in Cordy's continuing saga. Buffy rocks!
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review. Not sure exactly what I'll do with these characters, as yet.

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from bookworm
Review:
"Military? So not my thing..." Oh Cordy, if only you knew.
Comments from author:
Fate has a very warped sense of humour - she hasn't yet learned that it isn't a good idea to tempt her/him.

Thanks for the review

Review of chapter "Chapter Nine" from (Current 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.
