Review of chapter "All's Fair" from LordSia
Review:
I rather like it when Gods get involved on the good guys side, more than just "wooo- have a prophecy about great danger you've got to stop -wooo".

Review of chapter "All's Fair" from djhardim
Review:
I think that Willow has burned her bridges with Xander.

I don't see Xander keeping the nickname Xander much longer. More likely he'll either go as Alexander or Alex.

Review of chapter "All's Fair" from texaswookie
Review:
Most of your arguments are good, but I disagree with his pointing out the parent thing. Buffy told her parents and ended up in a mental institution. So its really the native Sunnydalers that are guilty of that. Maybe they were convinced by Giles and Buffy's horror stories but that is the way of it. I do think that you weren't hard enough on Willow. She was practically pushing Buffy and Angel together because she had some Romeo and Juliet idea of how things should be. That and it kept Buffy far away from Xander.
Comments from author:
Joyce has had her life endangered by not knowing and Buffy has had a watcher, several friends, and a tame vamp to prove what was going on if she choose to while in Sunnydale, the old excuses don't hold water anymore.

Review of chapter "All's Fair" from Zaxxon
Review:
Another great concept to play with... would love to see more of this, a Xander not only not holding the idiot-ball, but calling others on it. It's also obvious that Ares did a "oops", which would just add to the chaos that is Xander.

I could almost see this Xander and Kendra getting together and becoming a successful hunting team. If not with Kendra, definitely with Faith. Although, some reason I cannot see Kendra being killed off as "easy" as canon with Xander on the ball.

Review of chapter "All's Fair" from Omegaprime
Review:
I can see Cordy (or Snyder, or heck, Angelus) storming into the library and ask the gang if Xander was taken over by a pod person.

Or demanding to see where they put the real Xander.

Review of chapter "All's Fair" from Myauzo
Review:
i kinda wish you wrote glee fanfiction too with kurts point of view. there is this really awesome author i read but eventhought kurt goes through some big hurdles and big betrayals in all of his/her stories the other characters never really learn anything or get whats coming to them. not like your stories where not only do you tell it like it is but the characters (buffy and willow) actually take the blame eventually or recognize their many mistakes and regret it or are made to regret it. honestly, i could write an essay between you two. lol

Review of chapter "All's Fair" from KrisB
Review:
When did Willow get the sudden back bone? Xander really wasn't saying anything about Buffy. He was trying to do a threat assessment and get proper assets that could deal with the threat there.

Willow just got all huffy through it all and tried making it personal or about Buffy.

If you do add a few scenes to this one, I think instead of merely calling in Kendra, you should have it suggested Buffy take a vacation. Obviously the vacation with her dad isn't what she needed. What she needs is to be sent to where Kendra usually hunts to play slayer down there with her more traditional watcher.

I'm actually curious on how this one will develop a bit. I don't think that he needed any additional help from Ares. The emotional link realignment was more than enough for him to use that spine that he snaps against Cordy with against Willow and Buffy. He doesn't need anything more.

Actually logically, now the only female that really has a shot at him is Amy. Buffy is more than tainted in his eyes. Willow was a friend but has gone sort of crazy. Amy's spell will basically make Cordy a non issue in his heart. I'd usually say Amy or Dawn, but Dawn isn't around yet.

The only bit that I don't like about this is going from logical trying to fix things towards the more asshole/jerk attitude, but that can be written off mainly because he was calm and logical it wasn't until every logical argument that he brought up was either demised or said to not be as important as all that when he was getting angry.

It is important that Buffy wasn't saying that he didn't have a point. Willow was the one that didn't like he thoughts or where he was going with them. Willow was the one driving the wedge between him and Buffy. Willow is now seeming to try to shoot down his valid thought on the subject.

Wesley being there earlier and actually bonding with the group and getting field experience will do some good as well.

Its scenes like these where I can understand Xander making a few new friends like Jonathan and Amy. When Willow or Buffy fight with him, Xander is basically socially cut off. He really needs some adds in the good friend department.

Review of chapter "All's Fair" from LFW
Review:
Great beginning this idea and I liked Ares and Aphrodite . . . and I am concerned with the way Willow was acting
but I do not get where the vampire ashes are leading Xander.
So, I hope that you continue this so I will understand the point.
Thanks for the time and words, I am looking forward to more

Review of chapter "All's Fair" from Dhampyr
Review:
With the easy-going relationship between Ares and Aphrodite I really thought you would take this in a Percy Jackson direction until you pulled the mini-Kratos thing there at the end. And I get the distinct impression that this will advance a little further than Ares intended with the ash clinging to Xander's skin.

Actually, now that I think about it, Xander would make a very plausible son or legacy/grandchild of Aphrodite or Venus in a Percy Jackson setting given how he is ruled mostly by his love for others.
