Review of chapter "Chapter 6" from sdavidm
Review:
Good story so far. Faith and Jack would be a tough marriage, but I could see it working in a weird way. Not sure about willow and Wesley. Fred and early Willow are alike, but grown Willow became more underhanded, and that's not a trait Wesley would appreciate. But it could be made to work, as Willow changed after staying with the coven.

In any case, good work so far and I hope you continue this! I enjoy BTVS/SG crosses.

Perhaps you've forgotten Late-Angel Wesley? That guy would certainly appreciate a wife who could keep up.

Review of chapter "Chapter 3" from (Current Donor)KColl
Review:
I'd have thought they'd lost more than 13 Slayers (re. Insurance policy).
Comments from author:
From the original scenes, it didn't look like they lost that many girls. Plus the change of not going down before they were empowered cut down on losses.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)KColl
Review:
Glad you pointed out one of the many flaws with Buffy's plan, although
I'd have liked more discussion on the negative side-effects of the spell.

Waiting until she was inside the Hellmouth to execute the spell,
genius.... SMH.
Comments from author:
Other stories I've read have covered all the flaws of her plan in depth. I didn't feel that was necessary here.

Review of chapter "Chapter 6" from LaFlooze
Review:
Oh, I definitely need more. You're so on target with the characterizations. I appreciate how you've balanced all of the emotional aspects - giving us both dark and light moments and bringing depth to the characters while avoiding the abundant-angst trap. And I love the plot so far, especially everything Jack and Faith. I can't wait for the next chapter. Thank you for writing and sharing!
Comments from author:
Thank you. That really means a lot to me that my hard work is appreciated. Also, thank you for the Recommendation.

Review of chapter "Chapter 6" from RevDorothyL
Review:
I'm glad the (former?) Scoobies are trying to deal with Buffy's PTSD and major grief and exhaustion, and not just accepting the facade she can still put on from time to time. Since I live in Wisconsin now, I'm inclined to think the low crime rate in Madison MUST be due to demon policing, rather than to any inherent lessening of crime in Wisconsin cities (see the recent stabbing of a 12-year-old in Waukesha and the very high murder rate in Milwaukee as exhibits A and B), but I like the idea of Buffy being able to find a respite there, either way. :)

Meanwhile, it's nice that Riley's given Faith's husband and his team some inkling of the good-doing that Faith has been part of, and of the potential for major alien-ass-kicking among Faith's colleagues, should the earth ever be invaded again.
Comments from author:
You might be a Wisconsinite if you know that a brat is something you eat and that Eau Claire is not. :-)

Anyway, glad you're digging the story.

Review of chapter "Chapter 6" from MadHobbit
Review:
Comments from author:
I never did understand why Xander went to Africa.

To visit his pack?

Good story, as you don't like where everyone knows everything almost at once, I don't like
stories where due to Halloween everyone becomes a mini-power house over night.
I like the ones where they work for it (Terrain Jedi series for example)

good series so far keep up the good work
Comments from author:
Xander could go almost anywhere else in the world besides Africa and fit in better. I only exclude Antarctica as he looks better in a tux than the penguins. And everyone knows how jealous penguins get.

Hopefully you'll like this one. They'll definitely have to work for it.

Review of chapter "Chapter 6" from ColonelPeroxide
Review:
Well, that was something that made me keep reading until far too late in the night! I really want to see how Jack and Faith handle things. They seem an oddly fitting couple to me.
Comments from author:
Thank you for reviewing. As I told the last reviewer: Their ages make them very different, but their life experiences bring them close together.

Now get some sleep.

Review of chapter "Chapter 6" from poe
Review:
Overall this is an interesting story. I like the Wes/Willow pairing but the Jack/Faith relationship gives me a bit of the willies. While there are similarities in terms of making life or death decisions there is also a tremendous age difference to overcome. Honestly I think it would have been smoother to make it a Faith/Jack clone pairing and pull SG-1 in that way, but then I'm not writing the story. I do feel that you have the characters in voice and their reactions and dialogue are very true. The only thing I can honestly say that you need in this story is "The Shovel Speech". I cannot see Willow in any relationship without Xander laying the shovel speech on her significant other. Good luck.

Poe
Comments from author:
That is a very good point about the shovel speech. However it's horribly overdone in BtVS fics. *IF* I do it, it will be very different than you typically see.

As far as the age difference: also a good point. But it's what Faith needs. She's led a very hard life in her short years and she and Jack are much closer to equals when it comes to life experience. The clone would have the same experiences in a younger body, true. But I couldn't see Faith taking things seriously in that case.

Thank you for the wonderful review.

Review of chapter "Chapter 6" from (Recent Donor)DeepBlueJoy
Review:
I got from this that you dislike Buffy. That's unfortunate. It's Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She without whom the world would go bye bye. If you don't like her, and you prefer to write about the others that's fine, but you made her look like a stupid juvenile who couldn't possibly handle real life and not even someone who was in emotional trouble... just stupid and unwilling to do the things that one would have to do to rebuild after such a fight. It took away from the pleasure. In fact, it took the pleasure completely. I've read plenty of stories that weren't about Buffy, but I don't really read stories where she's disrespected.


--------

If PTSD was what you were aiming for, color me surprised. What i got was stupid with a case of senile. I like your stories, but the little exchange where she seemed to be an empty headed ditz? No matter how screwed up she is, she ain't dumb.
Comments from author:
I'm sorry you feel that way. And no, I don't dislike Buffy. Apparently, I didn't write that well enough then. Buffy is just at a point where she can't go on at the moment. And at that moment, she isn't able to think about stuff like that rationally.

Everyone reaches that point eventually, and Buffy reached hers. She needs a break before she can come back as a normal person/Slayer.



EDIT: Clearly I wrote something wrong as you're the second person to mention 'ditz', though the other 'got' that I was going for PTSD. What else could I have her say that would show her trying to cover up the strain she's feeling before bolting from the table at the pressure she felt?

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from FireWolfe
Review:
I like it. Buffy clearly has a very bad case of PTS. I hope she gets a chance to rest and recover and kick ass again. It would also be nice if she finds love as well perferably in a m/f relationship. All the fics that make her gay so do not seem to fit cannon at all. So I'd love it if it stayed away from that aspect. Her joking about the tourist thing is probably as close to admiting she needs help as she will go. Glad the other caught it. Hope you dont treat her like the weak ditz a lot of fics do.
Comments from author:
I'm glad you got it. Buffy is neither weak nor a ditz. She is simply empty.

And actually, I think a romantic relationship would be about the worst thing for her right now. And I don't really see her as gay anyway.

Review of chapter "Chapter 5" from LaraBr
Review:
This story just keeps getting better and better
Comments from author:
Well I hope so. If that first chapter were as good as I could do by now, it would be time for me to stop writing. :-)

Good chapter. Pay-offs and moving the plot forward.

If you're not moving the plot forward, you're just describing scenery.

Review of chapter "Chapter 5" from AndreaMaine
Review:
I think your version of Faith is even more um... uh... hmm... what is the right word? um... hmm... uh... well she's a bit more than the canon Faith, but that is why that part of the story is so interesting. I also think that the O'Neills should work this out and it would be cool for Jack to have another chance at a family other than the one he's created with his friends. I think Faith deserves the same.
Comments from author:
Faith is one of the deepest 2-dimensional characters I have ever seen. What we actually KNOW about Faith from canon is very little. And even then, you can make arguments about false bravado and not telling the whole truth to come up with a completely different person than what we saw. Faith requires a degree of inference and interpretation that most characters do not.
