Review of chapter "Gone" from Vld
Review:
Okay, so from that story and the other one, I'm guessing Ginny is a Slayer, and has seen pictures of Dawn while she was with the Scoobs. Or she saw Dawn in Slayer-induced dreams. And Dawn really should have told Amanda right after her death, that way she would have been able to talk to B and the others... that, or Amanda would have forbidden her to, because it could be "dangerous for the Immortal".

I really wasn't trying to turn this into a guessing game. Sorry.

Ginny isn't a slayer (I prefer to keep her as just a witch in my stories) This story also occurs in the same 'universe' as my ffa story "Faith in Winter" but approximately a year earlier. It should answer the Ginny question of where she could have seen a photo of Dawn. Sort of. Ret-conned of course since I hadn't originally planned on adding Harry Potter crossover-ness into the mix.

It's a common theme in Highlander fics -- don't tell your family. And you are correct, it is about survival. Immortals are just like other supernatural beings... who wants to live forever if that means being a lab rat?

Review of chapter "Gone" from Duchess
Review:
If you planned for this to be a one shot fic that isn't continued you should have written it a tad differently because this is a perfect set up for a much longer story. *wistful look*

To be perfectly honest, I believe anyone trying to keep Dawn from telling her sister and friends that she's still alive would NOT succeed short of imprisoning the girl and/or keeping a 24 hour constant watch on her to boot, so this isn't really all that believable. Buffy, Xander and Willow would ALL also take turns helping to "soften up" any opponent who came looking for their little Dawnie before letting her take their heads, too. LOL

Dangit now you've given me a plot bunny I'll have to strangle and have for a late supper. *disgusted sigh* ;)
Comments from author:
It's on my 'short list' for possible continuation but I have so many ideas and incomplete fics already that I'll probably never get to it.

The whole 'you can't tell your family' thing has never seemed realistic/believable to me (and you're not the first person to question it in this fic). But most traditional Highlander fics use that idea and it leaves room for other ideas I had...

Review of chapter "Gone" from CPTSkip
Review:
Good characterization and nice atmosphere, but too short. Lol! I would really like see more of the interplay between Dawn and Amanda. I think seeing Dawn pull off one of Amanda's little jobs would be quite entertaining. But even this short story is very nice. Thanks for sharing.
