I just re-read this series and u love it so much! I really hope that one day soon you finish it though. It seems a waste to take I so far and never finish it.

Review of chapter "Chapter 13" from Malyce
It's rare that I stop reading a story in the middle, but when I turned to the reviews to see what had been said before I left my own review I was rather stunned at the laissez faire attitude towards your reviewers. As a writer and a reviewer myself, I don't demand reviews, but if I read a story that I enjoy, I certainly usually leave one and there have only been a couple of occasions where the writer of the story has not answered the review. For the whole of the 13 chapters of your story, you have reviewed once, the one before mine...and even then you were extremely ungracious and dismissive. Your stories are good, although you certainly are in need of a beta to correct word omissions and whatever spelling errors there are in the story and the formatting is in a very uncomfortable setting for the eye of the reader. You do want people to read your stories...right? And so you should because they flow very well, although Xander comes perilously near to being a Xander-Sue on occasions. You have the right balance between action, love scenes and humour, nearly everything comes together apart from one thing. Your silence and apparent inability to even write a short note at the end of the last chapter you wrote to say that you were unsure where the story was going.
Again...you do want people to read your stories...right? Otherwise why bother putting them out there in the public domain! I get it that you have created your own website as a method of presenting your stories and that's a good thing, but what you have apparently failed to see is that your website will get even more hits through people reading your stories on TTH. You didn't even say until your sole reply to the last reviewer that you were preferring to showcase your stories on your own website. Nobody would have known had the last reviewer not been utterly blunt with you.
Again, I get it that you have original fiction along with the fanfiction and think that your work is better displayed on a purpose built site. So do I. I have written two books which I am trying to get published, but that doesn't mean that a site like Twisting the Hellmouth and it's readers aren't worth your valuable time to answer reviews.
After realising what your attitude is, I actually stopped reading this story, although I was enjoying it, simply because as a reader it's frustrating to be left hanging and then realise after reading the reviews of the story that the author appears to not care about it and certainly gives the impression that they don't care about people taking the time to leave reviews.
Your story is lovely, but the author definitely left me with a nasty taste in my mouth.

Review of chapter "Chapter 13" from Peaslums
I do believe I've commented on this on Tenhawk's page (with praise and such, so I won't waste more of your time), but I'm hoping you'll read my review here, and possibly reply. Is there any chance you are willing to continue this story? Even a 'no, the story's dead' would be appreciated.
That being said, you can't have all that much more to write. If you're going with the happy ending, it's Xander saving the world, getting the girl, and all's fine and dandy. If not, he dies, some other people die, and it's over. You basically brought the story right up to where the climax would start and stopped. Any further info would be better. Tell us you don't know how to end the story. Just say something. Of course, the most preferrable action would be to finish it, but I'm not going to hold my breath. You seem to be like me (albeit a much better writer) in that you can never figure out how to end a story arc. The same comments I made on this story could be said about Discoveryverse, BMR, and others. We, as readers, understand that. All I'm asking for is a response to even one of your reviews. If you say you're planning on finishing this eventually, great. I'll wait for it. If not, we'll deal.
To be honest, this whole bit with leaving a story with no ending or note about further work on the story is worse than an abandoned fic in my opinion. Again, I'm guilty of the same, but please; just throw us a bone here.
EDIT: Thanks for the response. It was exactly what I, and I'm assuming many more, we're hoping to see. It's very much appreciated.
Comments from author:
I plan on doing something with this story, I cannot tell you exactly what just yet as I have two choices neither of which is to totally dump it, and I have yet to make up my mind about it. I don't leave notes in the story because I find authors notes in the middle of the story annoying when I'm reading and if you do, as I do, and download entire stories in a run the notes end up in the middle so I avoid that. Also some sites, this one included I believe do tell us we're not allowed to make chapters for notes. I don't actually post here very often anymore anyway and you can find me on thp or Luwriting.co.uk more often than here.

Review of chapter "Chapter 13" from Razial
I was wondering if you intend to finally finish off this wondering trilogy? It has been ages since you added a chapter and I really want to see if you intended to bring xander and lara back together in the end. All three stories of the series have been wonderful and full of action/adventure and romance and it needs a good end

Review of chapter "Chapter 13" from Traveler
Ok, I can believe in writer's block or real life interference but you have had plenty of time to get past both. Many of us have enjoyed your stories and now is the time to finish a few of them-they are worth it. Please update anything soon.
