Review of chapter "The Solicitor who got up from the dead" from Jazzibear
Review:
Undoubtedly Mycroft, for you use some of Conan Doyle’s own words in his description of Mycroft. How jolly!

This has the makings of a splendid story, and I shall follow it avidly.
Comments from author:
Indeed I did. Well spotted.

Thanks and thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "The Solicitor who got up from the dead" from Chargone
Review:
Well, that Is interesting...
William the bloody awful poet... the origin of his later label, or is one a mockery of the other?

Rings, Narnia... The magician's nephew? Been a long time since i read that. Could have.... interesting... consequences...
Well done.
Comments from author:
In canon it was what he was called. He ‘earned’ the latter for himself after some time as a vamp.

Very interesting. As may be read in the other stories in which references are made to his past…

Thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "The Solicitor who got up from the dead" from Shadowman
Review:
A back story on the Spike of this universe should be interesting.
The first person to come to mind for The Official was Mycroft Holmes. No real evidence for this I know but he does fit the criteria for Mycroft.
I am glad to see another story from this series as I quite enjoy your writing.
Comments from author:
I hope so, at any rate. It is Mycroft, I fear I lifted his description almost straight out of Doyle.

Thank you, glad to hear it. And thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "The Solicitor who got up from the dead" from pazed
Review:
I'm thinking Mycroft Holmes for the Official - just mentioning my almost foundationless deduction to amuse you.
Following your stuff with great enjoyment...p
Comments from author:
Hardly foundationless, since it is correct. Thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "The Solicitor who got up from the dead" from Cordyfan
Review:
Excellent portrayal of a recently turned Spike and a good prequel to his role as a special government agent that we seen in other stories from this series. As a Victorian 'licence to kill' type, he'd have certain natural advantages, I suppose. I wonder how far HM Government will go to protect him from the Council.

I'm looking forward to seeing how this crosses into the Magician's Nephew. Pity he didn't have the opportunity to kill Empress Jadis, before she entered Narnia and became the White Witch.

Thanks for writing this - I look forward to the rest.
Comments from author:
Thanks, glad you enjoyed it. Licence to kill and drain. HM Government may or may not become a trifle annoyed with the council over the years. We shall see.

I don’t think he would have been able to do so, she was quite powerful as I recall. And possibly not MN, but later on in the series.

Thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "The Solicitor who got up from the dead" from ShalaDakiri
Review:
As soon as I saw the date, I jumped to the Magician's Nephew (I don't care what modern publishers seem to think, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe should be the first book in the series). Anyway, I'm looking forward to see what Spike ends up doing with the rings.
Comments from author:
I agree, it is the first. MN is just an explicatory sidenote. Even though the Guinea pigs are cute.

They will turn up, now and again…

Thanks for reviewing

Review of chapter "The Solicitor who got up from the dead" from AllenPitt
Review:
I don't suppose that was Mycroft? Just wondering. So, Spike with a commission. 007 or some such. Funny. Hm. Later on, maybe he'd actually have money and be able to help when Buffy was about to lose the house and such. Gee, the British sure like English vampires a lot more than they do Irish ones.
I'm assuming he doesn't tell Angelus about this little arrangement? ..... Anne Hepplewith. No wonder she switched to "Darla". And I'm impressed they were able to figure that out, she died in 1609. Then again owned property, so there'd be more records than usual.
Hm, presumably the British gov. doesn't talk about this deal with the Watchers?
Comments from author:
Mycroft? Whoever might you be talking about? Whistles nonchalantly. Well, this is before the Secret Service. Then again, it has to start somewhere… Having the money and Buffy accepting it are two different things, of course.

Tell Angelus? No. Laugh if he ever finds out? Yes. Darla died in Jamestown in 1609. Not that many people there with property who were also ‘courtesans’.

It is highly unlikely HM Government would disclose the identity of its newest asset to the Council…
