Review of chapter "Not What They Seem Challenge [Kennedy]" from CrimsonE
Review:
Interesting story, although it's not Buffy that Kennedy really needs to worry about in the long run--it's Xander. However, I can understand from Kennedy's point of view why she thinks Xander is a non factor, especially after Anya's death in Chosen. However, if anything can drive Xander to go on it would be revenge for Willow's death. And this doesn't even get into what the remnants of the Watcher's council would do--at least those within the council still left who would be on Giles' side.

Cracking good story, with a very well written look inside the mind of a government assassin.

Review of chapter "Not What They Seem Challenge [Kennedy]" from Iceflame
Review:
You do realize Kennedy's going to be a very, very, VERY dead Slayer Agent when Buffy tracks her down? Killing Willow, especially like THAT is going to earn Kennedy a death that's going to make Demonic GODS shudder for a thousand years.



P.S. Would like to see a VERY detailed description of Kennedy's painful punishment/demise in a follow-up!

Review of chapter "Not What They Seem Challenge [Kennedy]" from (Past Donor)Kiwikatipo
Review:
Actually couldn't Kennedy just be pretending to be American? I wouldn't have made this story A.U. I can't stand Willow (yeah she goes around draining peoples life force without permission and mind raping her girlfriends, not to mention her vigilante stint, due process of the law, bitch)and I hope Kennedy got a medal, a knighthood no less, for ridding the world of a dangerous, dangerous threat.

Review of chapter "Not What They Seem Challenge [Kennedy]" from Cutiepie
Review:
Well, as I hate Kennedy, I suppose that this is a fitting tale for her. 'Course, she won't last long at all as 008 before being slaughtered, despite her slayer strength. Then again, I just had a thought. What if . . . as soon as Willow was dead, the slayer spell began to fade, leaving the 'new' slayers powerless in less than a week? It would be fitting, considering Kennedy didn't report back to MI-6 the new circumstances regarding Willow and her focus. It is quite possible that her mission would have been scrubbed at that point. And even Bond couldn't kill someone that he had become personally involved with and have no negative feelings about it, even if it were only that the waste of life was a pity. I won't ask you to write a sequel, but I have in my mind what I'd like to see happen to new agent 008, and it isn't pretty. =] Thanks for the story.

Review of chapter "Not What They Seem Challenge [Kennedy]" from TroyGuffey
Review:
Ouch. Decently written.

MI-6 had no right to send Kennedy into the States to do that. (Also, I'm almost certainly sure(only because it was never stated) Kennedy wasn't British)

Needs another chapter where Kennedy gets what's coming to her. Kennedy hasn't got the good judgement to be a 00 agent. Killing Willow *AFTER* casting the greatest WHITE magic spell in the world was pretty stupid. I think Giles was right to stop Buffy from killing Kennedy, (because Slayers don't kill humans), but he would probably be a little vengeance minded himself. Giles was still fond of Willow, and now Kennedy the Slayer kills in cold blood?
Comments from author:
I hope it is OK to respond this way with the people who run the server. You’re the fourth person to say this so it needs to be publicly stated.

Yes. Kennedy is not British. Remember this is a reversal of character fic. Everything is flipped around in this world.

MI-6 saw Willow as a danger *to the whole world*. That's why they sent Kennedy to take her out.

In the story, Giles didn't stop Buffy from killing Kennedy. Kennedy did that on her own. She fought Buffy off and ran away. Giles was in shock the whole time.

And lastly, there will *not* be another chapter. Most of the reviews I got are people saying/asking for a retaliation continuance fic. If you want to imagine a future timeline were B and the Ripper give her what is coming to her be my guest, but as for me writing it out, sorry. I'm knee-deep into New Fang Gang Books 2 and 3 and other stuff. This was a one shot fic I did some 7 months back. I never had a continuance story in mind when I wrote it and I still don't. This story is over as far as I'm concerned.

would have been better if at the end, a rocket launcher is fired into the safehouse by Xander.

Review of chapter "Not What They Seem Challenge [Kennedy]" from CPTSkip
Review:
You were right, this is a dark, dark fic. But it was well writen and logically follows its premise. Even if Kennedy did become 008, I wouldn't want to hold her life insurance policy once Buffy and Ripper tracked her down. Still in all, it was a very memorable story. Well done.

Review of chapter "Not What They Seem Challenge [Kennedy]" from raven
Review:
Interesting-never seen one like this before. Wouldn't mind seeing a sequel-somehow at the end of it I saw D'Hoffryn bringing Willow back and showing her what will happen if she doesn't join him...he does have several openings after all. Of course, it could just be a nightmare sequence that Kennedy has later.
