I loved this story. I can picture Methos and Buffy together very easily. Thanks for a good read.

Review of chapter "My Immortal" from (Past Donor)Krisztina
That was outrageously fun. I love Buffy/Methos, and this was a terrific, if short, version. While I'm sorry to see that it's over now (in other words, pleading for a sequel that I'm sure you've read all too often before), I couldn't help but let you know how very much I enjoyed reading it. Also, I appreciated that the fight wasn't too easy for B, and that it was detailed enough to 'see' the action. Further, I liked that his thoughts as well as hers were reflected in the narrative. So many authors forget that readers like to peek inside both characters' heads.
Comments from author:
Appreciate you liked the fight scene. I like writing action scenes but usually don't get the chance to since I largley write "shipper" fics. I was glad I was able to pull off a good fight scene in such a short time I had to write it.

Review of chapter "My Immortal" from (Past Donor)zephyrRS
I know this is supposed to be a 20 minute fic....but I'd LOVE to see more!
Comments from author:
Thanks. I can't promise I will do a sequel but it is possible. "When One Life Ends..." was a 20 minutes fic also crossing over with Highlander, but I wrote a sequel to it. So anything is possible.

Review of chapter "My Immortal" from (Past Donor)Catlimere
I can't believe I forgot to review this the first time I read it. I LOVED this story. I personally thought of Methos when the Immortal was first mentioned on Angel. Methos seems like the perfect match for Buffy...he's like the perfect mix of Angel and Spike, in looks and attitude. He can be very charming, a real gentleman and romantic (eg. his wooing of Alexa) but he's cynical and not overly chivalrous (something he chides MacLeod about often). He understands the darkness, has his own darkside, but he doesn't sink into the deep, dark brooding cycles like Angel. He's often cynical and snarky, but also erudite and as much as he denies it, he's got a bit of the boy scout about him as well...even if he blames it all on Duncan.

Methos and Buffy would be a great match, heck she could even turn out to be Immortal herself, albeit maybe not the same type as he and Duncan. But being resurrected, then Willow's healing after she was shot by Warren, and then whatever happened with the Scythe spell...something had to have changed within her. She was stabbed through the side, she should have died and yet she gets up, kicks ass, says goodbye to Spike, jumps from rooftop to rooftop to the top of the bus (sprinting between jumps) to get out of Sunnydale and then is standing there continued bleeding, not passing out, the edge of Sunnydale canyon.

Anyway, love the story...would love to see you develop this more, add to it...and your image for the story is great as well.
Comments from author:
Glad you liked the image, and the story. I do think it is time for a confession, although originally the story was going to reveal that Methos WAS "The Immortal." I came to the decision it contradicted his origins too much. So I wrote it but it was actually an AU look at Buffy, he wasn't supposed to be the immortal who Spike and Angel were so fond of. Keep in mind he didn't recognize Vampires.

Granted, if you want to imagine it that way more power too you. That episode was my inspiration, even if I didn't go with my original idea. The only thing I don't like is in hindsight I think in 5000 years Methos would have seen some sign of the supernatural if he did live in the Buffyverse. I did that to try and make it clear I wasn't making him "The" Immortal, but in hindsight it is a bit odd he would be ignorant to vamps. But since it was a 20 minutes story I kept to the rules and didn't go back and re-write it.

I decided to go ahead and write the story anyway because as you stated Methos seemed exactly like the type of guy Buffy would fall for. Can't say if I will expand it any time soon, as I already have too little time and too many stories I need to write as is. But some day I just might.

I am also glad you liked the image. I think it came out well.

Review of chapter "My Immortal" from raven
Much better backstory for the immortal! This makes that awful episode of Angel almost bearable...
Comments from author:
Well Methos has all the making for a great love of Buffy's life. He is dark, brooding, lives forever (or at least has the potential to), and has a violent past as a not-nice person. He seemed like Buffy's idea of a dream guy to me.
