That ending was the best possible for that chapter. Hilarious!

Review of chapter "2's a Crowd 3" from JediLaSombra
To expand on Trom's review, how is what Willow did any different than what a vampire does to its victim?

They both did a ritual(Darla turned Jesse, Willow did Kalderash curse) and both removed one soul to replace with another(Jesse with demon, Xander with Angel/Liam). Both are walking around for anyone to see. Basically, Willow is Liam's sire at this point.

so how is it that a vampire "kills" its victim but Willow didn't "kill" Xander?

Something to think about as the story progresses.

“And if Xander was doing anything with your body without you conscious, you’d scream rape,” Cordelia replied,

“Which would be completely different because I’d still be in it not giving consent,” Buffy argued.

According to this argument, Buffy "knows" Xander is not in his body. Even Angel corroborated this.

"I don't think he's in here," he admitted after a moment. "I'm used to having someone else in my head, and I've got nothing here."

Because the girls 'know' it's just temporary and obviously Xander is still in there somewhere just buried under Angel's stronger soul.

Looking forward to the geeks answer
And I am very amused with the Angels getting Cordelia to help with the practical part of 'the Talk'

Review of chapter "2's a Crowd 3" from Difdi
> "Where's Giles? I have to ask him about sex demons."

Well, from a Christian standpoint, demons are fallen there's no actual physiological difference between a female angel and a succubus. About the only functional differences would be that the angel is probably less kinky and doesn't kill her lover. I can totally see how Cordelia might mistake one for the other though. And even without intent to kill, she might still die of sexual exhaustion...

Review of chapter "2's a Crowd 3" from KrisB
"Well, his replacement is taller and has more muscles," Harmony said, spotting Buffy and Angel at her locker. "He also dresses better and is a bit handsomer."

Well, this is proof that Cordy is right and all Xander really needs is proper posture and to be taught some style to be perfect. It's got to be one of the nicest things ever said about Xander or well his body while he isn't in it.

"Apparently, Cordelia LARPs, and they are really picky about realism." Andrew said.

Funny line. For a fun twist, could you actually write a Cordy as a secret LARPer who loves demon hunting quests? blinks. I couldn't picture it. Faith maybe. Willow, I could see being dragged along, but putting her foot down after while which makes Xander give it up. My other idea was for Cordy to invite some others onto her demon hunting quest. They think that they are going LARPing and she thinks that they are all demon hunters with an actual believable cover.

Rose beamed. "Wonderful! I was worried that I would make a mistake and do something wrong, but you can help me. Would you like me to get Xander now?"
"Sure." Cordelia agreed, figuring she could use a good Xander sex dream, even it was a threesome. She was a bit surprised she was this kinky, but was mainly just relieved it wasn't going to be Willow with them.

This is one of my favorite setups. Xander has likely been telling his entire squad that he is open to all that, but that they'd all have to go through Cordy first. I love the idea that she agrees not just for this one girl, but for the entire squad. It would be fun to make it a sex dream, but it would be even better if the angels screw up and accidentally link Cordy, Xander and the squads' souls together. Xander should be learning how to personally manifest his own holy weapon. That would have to come in useful.

I want a good comment about Cordy's desires if she has a dream where she is basically directing an entire team of angels to have sex with Xander.

"I just got suspended," Angel announced as he entered the library.
"What?!" Willow asked with a shout.
"Apparently, I've missed too many classes, and failed too many assignments," Angel admitted.
"So you got suspended because of Xander." Buffy scowled.
"No, these are all recent," Angel admitted.
"But he's a slacker and you're…" Buffy trailed off.
"He takes the same courses as Willow and I'm completely unfamiliar with a lot of the material," Angel admitted.
"Xander just likes to complain a lot," Willow said. "I think it's mostly habit."

And the real Liam shows. O.k. I can't rail against him to harshly as he hasn't been in school in ages and is suddenly takening classes that he hasn't a clue in. He should still be making an effort to show up for classes and pass though. This is about the only part where I'm mixed. If anything should turn Willow against Angel, it will be him getting Xander suspended and bad marks. Oh, boy, I can just see Willow going on the war path over this one. What's sad is that Buffy is blaming everything on Xander. No, it's Liam's fault. he screwed up with Xander's life and seems to be making it his mission to bring Xander down to his level. If Xander ever gets his body back, I hope that you have a method where this won't hurt him and some form of punishment for Liam on this one.

Please, have Willow be creative. Real glares and such would turn on if Xander turned out to actually have been 3-4th in the class before Liam jumped into his body. Hey, advanced classes did come that easily at the time, and I think that I spent less time studying during high school generally than Xander appears to. I still ended up with A&Bs in everything. I'm sure Xander was likely the same. About the only way that this could come out positive for Xander is if his dropped from the advanced/honors and ends up transferred to "that' class which turns out to have lots of demon girls in it. (He will need balance after all this after all.)

The door to the library opened and an exhausted looking Cordelia stumbled in. "Where's Giles? I have to ask him about sex demons."

I actually missed this one. this first time around. So it looks like Cordy got her threesome going on with Rose and Xander. I'd love to find out if it was only those two or if the entire squad gave her a hug and blessings and such.

Review of chapter "2's a Crowd 3" from Trom
As always a big fan of your work.
Although For this story. I find it strange that no cares, other than Corldelia, that Willow murdered Xander. That Buffy is will okay will that murder as long as she gets what she wants.
Keep up the awesome stories please.
Comments from author:
And how exactly did Willow murder Xander when they have him walking and talking right in front of them? As far as they are concerned they simply misplaced his soul. Just because you know where Xander is doesn't mean they do.

Review of chapter "First Knight - 5" from CrystalBlaze
Solstice is basically getting Xander to feed the hotel.

Frankly, if this is the Shining's Overlook Hotel, regular feedings of blood and carnage may be needed to prevent madness and murder..
