Review of chapter "Final days" from (Current Donor)Speakertocustomers
Buffy absolutely, positively, would be Left Behind; in 'Conversations With Dead People' she says "Nothing solid" in reply to Holden Webster's question about the existence of God. In fact I find it hard to believe that anyone in the Buffyverse would meet the standards of LaHaye & Jenkins' version of God.

When I saw this crossover I was rather hoping that it would be a full-scale crossover with Buffy & Co battling against Nicolae Carpathian in the place of the obnoxious and ineffectual Buck Williams and Rayford Steele. Or perhaps with Cordy being the Antichrist - she'd be much better at it than the supremely boring Romanian. Oh well, perhaps someone else will write it someday.

actually, I was thinking of the "musical" episode where Buffy, among other things, sang "I think I was in heaven".

I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed reading "Left Behind" the first time.
Good job. I presume that the glow that appeared behind Spike was William's soul?

Liked this!

Review of chapter "Final days" from TroyGuffey
Interesting idea, well written; but violates the Buffyverse Mythos.

Still, funny to see Quentin Travers get what was coming to him, but needs a better explanation of the spell that saved him.

Review of chapter "Final days" from orangemike
I concur that William the Bloody-Bad Poet has undoubtedly repented of his sins. Whether he has sought Christ in doing so, we don't know; but I'm willing to postulate that he might well have. Other folks in our beloved crowd, however, are somewhat iffier propositions. I'm sure that most of those who take the Left Behind books seriously would automatically condemn folks like Willow, even if she was not apostate, since the traditional teaching of fundamentalists is that Jews who don't accept Christ as Messiah have rejected Him. As to the rest: I don't recall a single member of the crowd (with the obvious exception of Angel) who shows much sign of Christian upbringing and beliefs. The problem, as you acknowledge, is that the Jossverse is not compatible with orthodox Christian theology, whether of the sect to which Rev. LaHaye belongs or otherwise.

That said... it was a nice little ficlet, and an interesting approach. I applaud your initiative in thinking of it.

Review of chapter "Final days" from SeshatTeirm
THe problem is that in the Left Behind series, those who were taken in the Rapture had to truly believe in and follow God's will. The only use most characters in the Buffyverse have ever had for God and religious items is how they could be used to fight evil. THey wold be left behind.
Comments from author:
Hmm... true.. however, my mind rewrites things just so they can go along with my own beliefs. Besides, I very rarely like stories where the hero comes to a horrible end. So I simply wrote it so that a happy ending would be had. *grin*

Review of chapter "Final days" from CPTSkip
I have been wondering if anyone would ever cross Buffy with the Left Behind series. The problem, which you have nicely shown, is that all our heroes would not be Left Behind, which would make for a short story. Well, you did a nice job with the short story. Good old Quentin. A day late and a pound short, like always. Lol!
Comments from author:
lol. Well... considering it was going to be short... I couldnt' figure out how to put the part in that since Spike had saved people before the soul even for his own personal reasons... God just decided to make the demon cease to exist. It was the closest thing He could give the vampire to heaven. The soul got to go however.

As for how this came about... well, right before that I dreamed that Xander accidentally cast a spell and sent Severus Snape flying around the room. I have no idea what came before or after that in that particular dream.
