Review of chapter "Many Questions, Few Answers, and Lessons" from rigger
Review:
I'm really enjoying this but do find it incredibly frustrating that Jenna feels this need to train Xander in front of everyone else. Buffy and Willow can't keep out of it, and with his confidence issues, it just makes him more likely to put up a goofy front and feel terrible when he doesn't pick things up immediately. I'm rather at a loss as to why they let Willow and Buff stick their nose into everything.

The idea of Giles being influenced is interesting, because is it a setup for the next plotline, or something weird about Willow and her magic? Is the hyena still around? I'm also wondering when someone will ask why Jenna is so interested in training Xander -- you know, besides weirdly jealous Giles. The fact that nobody should be out fighting alongside the Slayer without some kind of training is a given, which makes it ridiculous that Giles hasn't already taken care of it. So...why did Xander seem halfway decent with an axe?
Comments from author:
Jenny's basically passing the time and knows that they would not trust her to train him elsewhere, alone, so she's making the best of a bad situation. As for why they stick their noses in... they're them, they're teenaged girls and he's Xander. Normal rules apply.

Many questions, a few of them will be answered over the next chapter or so. As for the axe bit? It's an easy weapon to use, especially when your quarry is on the ground and his neck is exposed. The killer of it is how you recover if/when you miss.

Review:
Great little section, and think you caught Methos nicely there with his impatience with Giles there, while Buffy and Willow are shifting paradigms slowly, but hopefully surely.

Very good. Glad you kept Methos in, love the old man. So what is influencing Giles and who is the friend coming?

Review of chapter "Many Questions, Few Answers, and Lessons" from proofreader
Review:
NGE reference? Are you referring to Neon Genesis Evangelion or something else? Too many acronyms around these days. I heard of a cop going to a guard at NASA and when he tried to get in, he told them, "I'm LEO." The guard just looked at him and replied, "I believe it." When the cop gave him his ID the guard said, "Oh, you're a Law Enforcement Officer. I thought you had a few too many and were telling me you were in Low Earth Orbit."

Review:
Good.

Any reason for Jenny choosing to train Xander using a cutlass?
Comments from author:
it's an easy sword to start with; single edge, modest length.

Review of chapter "3 - Living Dead Girl" from CrystalBlaze
Review:
Beer is *the* constant of civilization and history.

Beer and wine were the safest things to drink, early on, and watered wine was basically saying water made safe by adding wine.

Given an Immortal's life, particularly Methos' life, beer was literally a staple and the imprint of this has never faded. It probably never will.

Review of chapter "3 - Living Dead Girl" from Oxnate
Review:
While I no longer think Methos was 'Death', I still liked the pun: Death tones. (I have a story that explains why I think differently if you're so inclined)

Now, can you go beyond that and explain why the continued existence of a mass murderer is NOT for everyone’s ears?” -- I'm wondering if you wrote that as intentionally ironic, as Methos has certainly killed far more people than Angelus ever could.

the only easy day was yesterday -- I'm sure that such a saying goes back far further than the SEALs. Methos should know the history of it, even if you have to make it up.

Anyway, despite what my review would otherwise tell you, I really liked this and hope for more.

Review of chapter "3 - Living Dead Girl" from JasonBarnett
Review:
Is Methos someone to talk about mass murderers left alive?

edit: couldn't quite a few of them just be said to have a ton of cases of self defense?
Comments from author:
As he mostly grew out of it, I suppose he can. Though technically any Immortal with more than five heads is also a mass murderer (or a serial killer).
