Review of chapter "Happy Purim, Willow II" from MBB
Once again an interesting and funny story.
And it's nice to see Willows background being used in fics, it gives her some diversity.
[With all those action fics here, you'd expect there to be some where the Mossad tries to recrute Willow]
And even while the 'religious re-evaluation' your last story somewhat inspired me to lead me to become a devoted Atheist (rather then my original agnostism), I still value this story for it's cultural value as well.
(now if only we could get some Muslims writers to do LittleMosque crossovers)
Although I have to admit that with all the remembering-of-enemy holidays, Willow's refusal to let people celebrate Thanksgiving becomes somewhat hypocritical. :-P
Anyway, I noticed that along with Willows jewish origin you also managed to bring up her old hacker skills in rigging the initiative sound system. :-D
And if I may inspire a next fic: A few years ago I read in the paper that there are about 12 different Jewish languages, (Hebrew and jiddish being two of them?), perhaps Willow had to learn some of them growing up.

Review of chapter "Happy Purim, Willow II" from Shieldage
"Somewhat Xander," Giles felt compelled to explain. "This was after beauty contests, but before theme songs."
A Princess Bride quote? You Rock!
Very good story. Great retelling of the original.

That was a great story. Very original. Purim is my favourite holiday and that was a great tribute to it. Planning any sequels? Mmm, have to go bake some hamantaschen now.
