Review of chapter "Chapter 34: Epilogue" from WhippingDawn
Review:
This story fascinated me so much that I jumped right into "Racing with Destiny", and I'm now at Chapter 8, and I FINALLY think of reviewing it!

You are a WIZARD! I absolutely LOVED all of "Twist of Fate"! I haven't seen much of "The Pretender" but I remember the general idea and the main characters. I did not remember Lyle and Raines being such bastards, but then again I've missed a lot of the series.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

And now back to Chapter 8! :)

Review of chapter "Chapter 34: Epilogue" from maxthehobbit
Review:
Excellent. I've never seen the Pretender series, but it seemed to mesh well with BtVS. I like how the bad guys lost in the end, but thought they deserved a much longer and more painful death. I also like how you made Faith weak from being in bed in a coma for so long, I've read other stories where she gets up and starts slaying immediately which just doesn't make any sense.
Thanks for posting and sharing this story. Looking forward to reading the sequel.
I waited to read this story for close to a year because I never even heard of the Pretender, but then again I never saw a Buffy episode till the series was almost over.

Review:
An excellent story! You did a nice job tying the two series together, without making one overshadow the other. Looking forward to reading the sequel.

Review of chapter "Chapter 34: Epilogue" from SEAborg
Review:
Although I haven't watched The Pretender, I must congratulate you on a good story. It was quite well done.

Additionally, I was glad that Buffy didn't end up being a superhero who was impossible to defeat or capture. It's not too common to read a fan-fiction in the Buffy universe where the main characters aren't essentially unstoppable.
Comments from author:
Unstoppable characters become boring very quickly. Every superhero needs their kryptonite, or why bother?

In other words - I'm glad that you enjoyed the story, and thank you for the review!

Review of chapter "Chapter 34: Epilogue" from Blackett
Review:
Wow this was dark. I really didn't expected this. But interesting don't get me wrong because I couldn't give up on reading it is just that I've only recently seen The Pretender ( I was to young to remember big deal the last time around) and I already loved Jarod ( Parker, Sydney and Broots too) and really hated Raines an Mr Lyle so them dying....best thing ever. But man did you make me hate them and the Centre to a hole new level, dang. Good work. Can't wait to read the next story in the series. So sad that there are no new Pretender stories.
Comments from author:
Yeah - the whole series is pretty dark, but nothing quite as dark as the first story in this trilogy. I'm glad that you enjoyed the story and hope that you enjoy the second just as much (don't worry - there are Pretender cameos in the next two installments).

Thanks for the review!

Review of chapter "Chapter 34: Epilogue" from indis
Review:
Well done on this very well written story, I'm not familiar with The Pretender but the way you filled in the "new" characters back-story was very reader friendly. There was some nice interaction between them and The Scoobies that I enjoyed a lot.

It was rather touching how the gang were struggling to keep it together in Buffy's absence, and their desperation to get her back was all written so well.
It's quite depressing in places (Poor Joyce!) and you certainly like to torture Buffy don't you!? Hopefully things will get better for her in the 2nd of the series, but I think It'll be a long road back to her old self.

So on to Part 2...

Congrats again.
Comments from author:
Thank you so much for the review! ToF was indeed a dark story - arguably the darkest that I've ever written. I'm just glad that you hung in through the dark parts in order to fully enjoy the heart of the story. And the good news? Even though RWD starts out in that same dark fashion, I think that it's an overall lighter story, and for what it's worth, I hope that you enjoy the read!

Thanks again for the review!

Thanks again - and I hope that you enjoy Racing With Destiny. Many people seemed to favor that part of the trilogy... less dark, perhaps? Either way, thanks again for taking the time to review! It's very much appreciated!

Review of chapter "Chapter 34: Epilogue" from Bluejello
Review:
Wow, you really do love to torture Buffy, eh? Not that I'm complaining, especially since it comes out in such incredible stories.
Comments from author:
*grins* Yes, you could say that torturing Buffy, either mentally or physically, really is my forte. At least I put her back together when I'm done playing... well, mostly. ;p

THANKS FOR THE REVIEW!

Review of chapter "Chapter 34: Epilogue" from (Past Donor)FireDragon
Review:
Wow that was really good. I was hoping for a Buffy Jarod pairing but maybe a good pairing for her in the next story? Excellent story thank you.
Comments from author:
*grins* Yes, there certainly is a pairing for Buffy in the next part of that trilogy. Just check out Racing With Destiny for the continuation! And..

THNK YOU FOR THE REVIEW!

Review of chapter "Chapter 34: Epilogue" from Marcel
Review:
First, the bad: I completely hated the parts where Buffy was tortured and brainwashed. I started this story several times already, and every time I stopped there. I finally managed to skip over those parts and finish it now.

The good? The story is very well written. Lyle and Raines are as despicable as they were in the movies; Parker is the perfect amount of morally ambiguous. The Scoobies don't have a very large part, but what can be seen of them is in character.

All in all, a well written story... even though too dark for my tastes at times. Then again, I didn't write it, you did, so you got to choose the mood :)
Comments from author:
I'm glad that you found the story well-written, and at least somewhat enjoyable despite the dark nature of the story. The good news is that the sequel is a little less on the dark side and has much more in the way of lighter moments. I hope that you give it, as well as the third part of the trilogy a shot, and thanks for the review - I'm glad that you were able to stick it through to the end!

Review of chapter "Chapter 34: Epilogue" from (Past Donor)hellmouthprincess
Review:
I have an exam first thing in the morning and should probably not be spending my time reading four year old fics that I'm pretty sure I've read before, but I did, and I'm glad because that was really good. Unfortuantely for my physics exam in the morning I will probably end up reading the sequel before I start revising.
Comments from author:
*grins* While I'm sorry that I may have screwed up your study time for your Physics test, I can fully understand the fine art of procrastination! Oh well - at least you found something entertaining to do instead of studying!

I'm glad that you enjoyed the tale, and thank you for procrastinating further by giving me a review!
