Review of chapter "Another Life Begins" from djhardim
Nice story. I don't think that immortal will live long enough to enjoy his quickening though.
A space station doesn't strike me as a good place for two immortals to fight.

Well technically he will live, after all he won't be beheaded;).
Seriously someone else pointed that out to me after I posted the story. It's a valid point but frankly while I love Highlander I found the whole quickening aspect never made much sense. Even the producers admitted int he DVD's that it was never really explained what happened "gets his power" could mean anything and they never did bother to explore it much.
Not to mention it's also odd that these guys bring about small electric storms that cause destruction wherever they go, yet most people don't know anything is going on.
I actually did think maybe I should move it off the space station, and hey... maybe I should have. But I decided in the spirit of Highlander to just "go with it."
Hope the story was enjoyable despite that. Even though it isn't perfect (heck nothing I write is.) this is my favorite story out of all the ones I wrote.

Review of chapter "Another Life Begins" from Odjn
I like the idea, and the message, but I found it a little depressing that it came to an end the way it did.

Glad you liked it. Actually this was one of my favorite stories to write but I don't think until now I have gotten feedback anywhere I posted it. Good or bad. So it is nice to get someone's opinion on it after all this time.:)
As for the ending. After writing "When One Life Ends..." I had wanted to explore what kind of an immortal life Cassie went on to have. But the message behind it started to form as I began writing it and after that this ending seemed most appropriate.
The only regret I have about this story is that recently I re-watched Help. And saw the scene where Cassie told Buffy all the things she wished she could do that she wouldn't have been able to. I don't know why I didn't think to incorporate those into the story, but I wish she had. I like to believe that Cassie did go on to skate in Rockeffeler park and see her fat nephews grow up:).
